I was experiencing brain fog and fatigue for several years and then hot flashes for several months. Dr. Monk tested me as a "Green/Red" person. While I had always known I was chemically sensitive, I naturally chose organic foods for myself and family. What I didn't know was that I should also stay away from wheat. I gradually removed my best friend "wheat" from my diet. It was challenging but the more protein and veggies I ate, the better I felt. My brain fog evaporated within about a week. My energy levels increased gradually over a month or so. My hot flashes were significantly reduced from 13 times a day to 1-3. They were brought on by wheat or sugar so it became pretty simple to break off our relationship almost entirely! Once I stopped eating wheat and sweets, my hot flashes completely stopped. Today, I indulge in wheat and sweets only on special occasions with no ill-effect. My hot flashes saved me from some other illness down the road so I am grateful to them and Dr. Monk!
Thank you for sharing your knowledge, answering all my questions and helping me to heal myself. Health is the greatest of all gifts. I am forever grateful.

It was March 2008 and I had suffered for 18 years with severe and debilitating joint pain, headaches, fatigue and brain fog. I had been evaluated by multiple doctors. I was diagnosed with many different medical problems, had many different treatments, I was on many different medications and been hospitalized multiple times. No doctor was able to help me and I was at my wits end! I had four children and worked as a part-time firefighter/EMT. It was really interfering with my quality of life there were days I could barely function. It was heartbreaking as a mom not to be able to enjoy my children like I wanted. A fellow firefighter had recommended Dr Monk who had greatly helped him and his wife. I went to see Dr Monk who discovered my body couldn't tolerate wheat and gluten. Within two weeks of eliminating all wheat & gluten the pain diminished greatly, my fatigue was less and brain fog was gone. After a month my life completely changed, I had no more joint pain, had energy I hadn't had in years, headaches disappeared and I felt like a new person. I was able to eventually go off all my medications. I have been very strict with my diet and occasionally when I've had an accidental gluten exposure my symptoms will return for a few days but not to the degree they were before which reminds me just how sensitive my body is to it. It has been 5 years now I have also lost 30 lbs and I'm in the best shape of my life! People who haven't seen me in years tell me they can't believe it's me and how great I look. I have a very active life now and I can enjoy time with my family & children. This new quality of life also gave me the opportunity to make a lifetime dream come true and go to paramedic school and become a paramedic. I have been a paramedic for two years now and love living my dream! Dr Monk literally gave me my life back! Now I can save the lives of others!
I came to Dr Monk for help with my brain fog, lack of energy and what I called "guess I'll go eat worms" attitude. I think that last part was anxiety - the feeling that nobody likes me everybody hates me, guess I'll go eat worms.
Doctor Monk did some muscle testing and decided that I should try to avoid dairy and cut way back on sugar. He also recommended a few supplements.
I just can't tell you how much better I feel since I have been following his protocol. It is amazing and makes so much sense that changing your diet can bring about such dramatic change in a person's health and mental wellness.
I am forever thankful to Doctor Monk for helping me to be in control of my own health, instead of just taking a pill to treat a symptom, which is what happens too often with our traditional western medicine.
About a year ago I went to the doctor with terrible headaches. The doctor prescribed 4 daily medications for headaches, high blood pressure, high blood sugar and high triglycerides. At 46, I wasn't prepared to give in to a lifestyle of pills. Instead I went to see Dr. Monk. He showed me what foods to eat and avoid, and gave me supplements to help my body correct itself. Within a few weeks I was headache free and I did need any prescriptions. A year later I am still feeling great and my bp, sugar and cholesterol numbers are looking good.
Hi Dr. Monk,
First of all, I want to thank you! I feel wonderful! I have been taking the Zinc twice per day, the B6 once, the Pro-Biotics at night and the Folic Acid drops. I have so much more energy that I've been working out 4-5 times per week. I'm not getting any headaches post work out either. My gums are back to normal as well. I have been around many sick people lately and I'm very healthy, so my immune system is working again!
