Simply put, Chiropractic Internists are doctors with the tools and training to diagnose a wide spectrum of conditions along with an education to use natural treatment options. In an era where more and more people have become concerned about the adverse reactions of prescription and over-the-counter medications, DABCIs are becoming a popular alternative. Every year, more and more patients are choosing DABCIs as the first doctor they visit when they get sick or are having health problems.
And because DABCIs are trained not only in medical diagnostics but also utilize more alternative, cutting edge testing and natural treatment plans, these alternative practitioners find themselves evaluating and successfully treating those patients deemed by the medical community as "challenging" or even "hopeless". How is that possible? It's the approach: a time honored method of doing the "detective" work in addition to using diet and nutrition to replace dysfunction and illness with normal body function and health.

Many medical treatment protocols don't hold water when viewed with this holistic and restorative care mindset.
