Mr. Monastyrsky graduated from medical university in 1977 with a pharmacist degree. He is also a Certified Nutritional Consultant, and a member of the American Association of Nutritional Consultants. In 1978 Mr. Monastyrsky's family emigrated to the United States from the Ukraine (the former Soviet Union), and he decided to pursue a career in the high-technology field. From 1985 to 1990, he worked at two premier Wall Street firms: at First Boston/Credit Suisse as a senior systems analyst and at Goldman-Sachs & Co. as a consultant to Dr. Fischer Black, the co-author of the Nobel Prize-winning Black-Scholes theory of options trading. In May of 1990, Mr. Monastyrsky was invited to participate along with Mr. Bill Gates in the filmed introduction of Microsoft Windows 3.0, which forever revolutionized personal computing. He was the only programmer in the United States to earn this honor because of his substantial contribution to the development of graphical user interface and Windows programming techniques. Between 1990 and 1998, he was the president of a software company. In 1996, Mr. Monastyrsky began to suffer from diabetes and a host of related ailments, including debilitating carpal tunnel syndrome. Unable to use the keyboard, he turned his attention back to medicine to find solutions for his rapidly deteriorating health. He applied the same analytical rigor to the study of his health condition as he had to technology, and within several years completely recovered from diabetes. In 1998, free from the ravages of carpal tunnel syndrome, he left the technology field to pursue a career in nutritional research, medical writing, investigative journalism, broadcasting, and health advocacy. Through his extensive investigations and research, Mr. Monastyrsky pioneered the fields of forensic nutrition and nutritional intervention—both terms that he coined. His unorthodox thinking, penetrating analysis, and extensive and accessible writings are ushering in a new era and approach to nutrition and healthcare in the United States.
