What is a Chiropractic Internist?
Aka DABCI – Diplomate of the American Board of Chiropractic Internists
What does that really mean? A DABCI, or chiropractic internist must earn a Doctor of Chiropractic degree, as well as attend an additional 300 hours of comprehensive post-graduate education. After completing the 300 hours of education, doctors are able to sit for the board exam (which Dr. Lindsey will be doing in the coming months). The DABCI program trains doctors to diagnose a wide spectrum of conditions and arms them with natural treatment options. DABCI doctors are trained extensively in blood chemistry analysis, diagnostic testing, and natural treatment options including dietary modification, supplementation, stress management, and lifestyle changes. The goal is to address all aspects of a patient’s life, provide holistic care, and help patients learn how to help themselves stay healthy long term.
DABCI doctors are trained to be detectives – to dig deeper, search for answers, and to find the cause of dysfunction or illness. DABCI doctors complete a thorough history an examination, order testing, and spend time to determine why symptoms are present. The DABCI approach is not focused on providing something to cover up symptoms, but rather to determine the cause, then provide a natural option to correct the biochemistry that caused the dysfunction in the first place.
Dr. Lindsey wholeheartedly believes in the functional medicine and DABCI principles of determining the problem and attempting to fix it, over covering it up with prescription medications. Of course, there are times when drugs and surgeries are absolutely necessary, but for a majority of chronic diseases that Americans struggle with, much can be done with simple, natural measures to increase health, decrease cost, and decrease the burden of disease.
