In 1991, after experiencing heart beat irregularities for several months, he was treated by a chiropractor, specializing in Applied Kinesiology (AK). In the span of about ten minutes, through standard AK testing procedures, it was discovered that a deficiency in potassium was present. After taking a supplement for a total of one month, the palpitations stopped completely and never returned.

*Applied Kinesiology (AK) is a comprehensive diagnostic tool that analyzes the human body primarily through the neurological responses of muscles. It was originally developed in the early 1960’s and is currently utilized by many types of physicians: medical doctors, chiropractors, dentists, osteopaths, psychiatrists, and psychologists. *Functional Bio-Analysis (FBA) FBA is a rapid, in-depth whole-person diagnostic approach developed by Dr. Monk.
