These conditions respond poorly to pharmaceuticals alone, often leading to ineffective treatment and frustrated patients.

  • Drug therapy 
  • Novel medicines 
  • Nutritional medicine 
  • Mindbody medicine
  • Functional medicine

Holistic ASD Treatment

Autism, or Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and being neurodiverse can cause a wide range of issues around how a person communicates and interacts with others as well as functioning in daily life.

ASD is thought to have both genetic and environmental factors and everyone’s experience can be slightly different.

Although symptoms start in childhood, many people are not diagnosed until they are adults, where certain symptoms may prompt them to consider that they are neurodiverse.

Symptoms of Autism

Signs and symptoms of Autism vary widely but can include:

  • Social issues
  • Problems with sleep
  • Obsessive or preoccupation towards specific topics/interests
  • Lack of empathy
  • Behavioral issues
  • Unusual tone of voice
  • Severe anxiety
  • Repetitive speech or motions


The difficulties associated with ASD can have a huge impact on your daily life and functioning and lead to feeling overwhelmed, confused and frustrated.

How Holistic Treatment Helps ASD

Holistic ASD treatment can help you cope better & dramatically improve your quality of life, relationships, reduce anxiety and mental fatigue.

No two people experience exactly the same difficulties, which is why personalized treatment is important, including considering novel and botanical medicines which may help with reducing overwhelm and anxiety, improve focus and sleep disruption and mental distress.

Masking is when you may feel the need to suppress aspects of your identity and present ‘neurotypical’ social behaviors in order to conform to an environment that is not neurodiverse friendly.

This can include forcing eye contact or smiling, constantly thinking of rehearsed responses to questions or scripting conversations, pushing through intense sensory discomfort and downplaying it to others, or disguising stimming behaviors.

The consequences of masking on a daily basis can be extreme stress and anxiety, mental and physical exhaustion and a loss of self-identity. Holistic treatment can help you become more comfortable with yourself, reduce fatigue, anxiety and feel more at ease by understanding yourself and how your process the world better.

Our Process

Step 1.
Rapid Symptom Relief With Novel Medicines

Novel botanical medicines influence multiple biological functions and often bring rapid relief of symptoms within days.

Most patients see a significant improvement within the first month of therapy across multiple symptom clusters including mood, fatigue, stress, pain, sleep and mental function. 

Novel Medicines Can Dramatically improve Quality Of Life

Many patients are able to wean down on other medications to help to further improve symptoms and quality of life and reduce unnecessary drug side effects.

Step 2.
Long Term Recovery

Once initial symptoms are relieved, we develop a personalized holistic long-term treatment plan, since even two people with the same diagnosis can need different things.  This can include:

  • Drug therapy  
  • Functional medicine testing – advanced tests to identify root causes of symptoms such as microbiome testing, brain-gut axis function, methylation pathways and hormone levels 
  • Nutritional medicine –  personalized therapeutic diets, supplements and botanicals.
  • Mindbody medicine – meditation, relaxation response training, biofeedback.
  • Lifestyle medicine – sleep, exercise, work/home environment.

Step 3.
Long Term Resilience

Resilience is the ability to adapt and bounce back in the face of challenging circumstances.

The ability to reduce distress, both mentally and physically enhances your quality of life & activates our inner potential for healing.  Resilience can always be improved regardless of your medical diagnoses. 

Our virtual platform gives you access to holistic tools and resources as part of your treatment to enhance your resilience further, manage your holistic health & see your progress over time so you can get better and stay better.

What Patients Say

After 11 years of doctors from four specialisms being perplexed about my conditions, I was getting precisely no-where. It wasn’t until I saw Dr Dani Gordon that I finally got some answers. Dani is like no other medical professional I have ever seen. She is not driven to solely prescribe drugs to treat symptoms – she is much more focused on investigating a root cause for the issue and on actually addressing that cause. She is also incredibly patient focused, taking individual needs and wishes into consideration. The combination of her talent in problem solving and medical investigation with a really genuine amount of care – in my opinion that is true medicine.
