After receiving a Bachelor of Science degree in Education at The University of Illinois
at Urbana-Champaign, Bonnie Minsky taught for several years in Chicagos inner-city
schools. Soon thereafter, she raised her two sons and daughter while completing her Master
of Arts Degree in Counseling. This is when she discovered the importance of nutrition.
Frustrated by the inability of conventional medicine to treat her childrens allergies and severe learning and behavior problems with the teenagers she counseled, Bonnie postulated that many of the problems could stem from diet. When her children and students showed miraculous improvements from a slight change in diet, Bonnie saw her future.
In 1985, she founded Nutritional Concepts, Inc. Continuing to bolster her knowledge in all fields of health, Bonnie received a Master of Public Health degree from the prestigious School of Public Health at the University of Illinois-Chicago in 1989. Her next achievement would receive national attention.
Bonnie co-authored the bill that would license Nutritionists in Illinois, the second of its kind proposed in the United States. In 1990, fighting tremendous odds, the bill was passed and Bonnie was honored as the first Licensed Nutrition Counselor in the State of Illinois. Similar bills have now been passed in most states.
Bonnie is heavily involved with state and national health organizations. She is a Certified Nutrition Specialist with the esteemed American College of Nutrition. She was appointed to The Dietetic and Nutrition Services Board for the State of Illinois. She is a member of both the Illinois and American Public Health Associations. She was a Board Member of Citizens for Health, served as President of the International and American Association of Clinical Nutritionists, Secretary of the National Association for Public Health Food Policy Council in Washington D.C., and served as Vice President of Nutrition for Optimal Health Association.
Bonnie has also appeared on numerous radio and television programs and given hundreds of lectures discussing natural menopause, anti-aging, weight loss, and all other aspects of nutrition.
Bonnie currently serves as President and Wellness Director of Nutritional Concepts where she privately counsels. She has authored Our Children's Health, Nutrition in a Nutshell, and Circle of Health Food Chart.
Bonnie sees clients of all ages, shapes, and sizes. With over 25 years of practicing nutrition, she has dealt with every health issue imaginable. While she is popular for treating unique issues like food intolerance and menopause, her real specialty is not having a specialty...she treats everyone as an individual!
In her spare time, Bonnie loves to garden and pamper her grandchildren.

"What's Your Story Bonnie Minsky?"
(9 minutes; You Tube)
"I had a number of minor health issues. Traditional doctors could not find anything wrong with me and worse were treating me like a hypochondriac. Then I went to see Bonnie. She identified the source of my problems as food allergies. She educated me on what to eat, how to read labels when grocery shopping and what supplements to take. Almost immediately I felt better than I had in my adult life. Thanks to Bonnie's ongoing counsel and support, years later I continue to feel great. Thanks, Bonnie. Susan"
