Product Description

About the Author

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.

The book is beyond interesting, yet ALSO shocking since it goes against everything I've been thought to believe; example: lots fruits and
vegetables, meat, fish, full fat dairy/cheese and also carbohydrates (in moderation).
I'm a B+ blood type following the DR. D'ADAMO most of the time and am now trying to cut back on fiber, but it isn't easy and it's my
4th day CONSTIPATED; feeling uneasy and uncomfortable, but more importantly, worried about when my next bowel movement will be ??
I tried a Gylcerine Suppository for the first time tonight, but it didn't work, much to my dismay and now, I'm not sure what to do next ??
It sure would be great to have some advice/feedback from Konstantin Monastyrsky himself at this point, because I'm at crossroads.
I believe that EVERYTHING in moderation is the best remedy AND that fruits and vegetables are a clockfull of vitamins and MINERALS and I wish to continue eating them but less, perhaps.
A list of acceptable fruits and vegetables, etc ... in the book would have been VERY HELPFUL.
Anything in extreme isn't healthy and why take a pill if I could get the vitamin ad mineral from the real fruit, vegetable, etc.
Nonetheless, I highly recommend the book, because it's changed my perspective somewhat, but at this point it's also about finding a PERSONAL balance because I don't want to start stressing out about having a bowel movement.:-X
THANK-YOU.

The information in this book has helped me immensly. I am still working thourgh determining what works for my body. This information has given me a new direction to try and I am getting results that are very promising.

The author has presented something that goes against the current thinking, and for me it is right on.

Thank you Konstantin!

I have been suffering from IBS for over 10 years. It has negatively impacted my life on a significant level. My gut is unbelievably sensitive, and, until reading this book, I simply did not have all the answers I needed. This book was the clincher. It gave me the answers I needed. Now I know exactly what the problem is.

I would highly recommend this book for those with damaged intestinal lining. Simply put, applying the theories in this book will change your life. They have changed mine, for the better. I feel like I am finally on the path to being "normal". Discipline is required, but what is the other option? Continue to suffer with low energy levels and a myriad of other unwelcome symptoms?

As a final and critical note, you MUST purchase the Ageless Hydro-C product or else you will be constipated. I use it everyday with no noticeable side effects. I cannot stress how important it is that this product be utilized on a daily basis to maintain regularity. The author's theories must be adhered to AND this product must be used to achieve real results - life changing results.

Lots of info which now seems common sense but never thought it through before, a different approach to how to heal diseases which are only symptom treated but not healed my "mainstream" medicine. As a first benefit we immediately cut our water intake by half and feel better already by not loosing all those essential minerals.

The first half of the book describes how our stools are swollen with two much fibre and are hard to pass. The author makes sense here. The second half of the book makes me think that the author has jumped off the cliff into crazy. He recommends eating only white rice all day with a bit of chicken breast at night. You must use glycerine suppositories with every meal to make you go to the bathroom. You must also take all the supplements that he sells on his website in order to remain healthy. You would have to be crazy yourself to even consider such a radical diet.

This book challenges all the conventional wisdom of eating more fibre and drinking more water to improve intestinal health and function. Definitely worth reading.
