Conventional medicine has lately been classified as a "one-size fits all method" to treating chronic disease and people often have concern for the over-commercialized, side effect ridden drugs that are the primary care's solution for illness. People are sick and tired of feeling sick and tired and are becoming more educated on alternative, more natural approach to health.
A Chiropractic Internist is a conservative practitioner who is a health educator and is passionate about each patient receiving an individual wellness plan. Being a Chiropractic Internist allows chiropractors to raise the bar to primary care status and also meet the rapidly growing demand of natural health care. The opportunities are open and endless!
Successful management of a chronically ill patient requires knowledge of what is going on in many systems of the body. A true holistic approach would include evaluation of imbalances in the patient's immune system, gastrointestinal health, structural health, hormonal and neurological health, energy production, psychological health (mind and spirit), and the need to detoxify the areas that are congested.
The Chiropractic Internist's treatment concentrates on promoting balance to dysfunctional systems to restore health. This parallels with the chiropractic philosophy of the relationship between structure and function of the human body, and how that relationship affects the restoration and preservation of health. With the use of comprehensive diagnostic tools beyond standard conventional testing, history taking and examinations, the Chiropractic Internist's treatment protocols include lifestyle modifications, nutritional counseling, and the use of pharmaceutical grade nutritional supplementation and herbal therapies (neutraceuticals).
