Hope for Health eBook by Dr. Scott Monk
A PDF version of Dr. Monk's book, Hope for Health
"Where do I start?" The unwell ask in desperation. "Do I need to detoxify my liver? Cleanse my bowel? Eliminate my food allergies? Balance my hormones? Fix my sugar cravings? What about my insomnia, joint pain, migraines, and these nagging restless legs? Can it all somehow be connected?" Having already abandoned the traditional medical approach with its addiction to prescription drugs, some of these same confused souls are now growing disenchanted with the efforts of natural medicine as well, finding the process too laborious, time-consuming, or expensive. "Surely there must be a better approach to all of this?" they moan. It was in this context that Functional Bio-Analysis (FBA) was developed and Hope for Health was written.
Scott Monk, the author of Hope
for Health and the founder of Functional Bio-Analysis (FBA), has been
treating patients holistically for the last 15 years. Amazed by the
sophistication and complexity of the body, Dr. Monk studied in detail the
phenomena that came into view with each patient and began asking a few
questions. Why is it that people react differently to the same problem? Why do
those with the same virus have different symptoms? One gets a rash and a fever,
while the other person has nausea and joint pains. Why does one family member
suffer from migraines when the other siblings are fine?
Functional Bio-Analysis is science-based
complementary medicine technique helping knowledgeable practitioners navigate
the natural monitoring system present in all people. It is the primary goal of
FBA to tap into the body's neurological and energetic pathways to evaluate the
functions within. With FBA, practitioners can follow these ordered steps to
find the nutrients a patient's body needs most, called the prime movers.
there is only one method that allows a practitioner to utilize FBA to its
fullest potential, namely, manual muscle testing. Despite being grounded in
neurology and basic body reflexes, this much maligned and poorly understood
approach is still taboo for many. And yet, those curious enough to examine the
process for themselves will find that the precision of manual muscle testing
along with the power of FBA can bring Hope for Health to those in
