HAROLD J. KRISTAL, D.D.S. graduated from the University
of Minnesota School of Dentistry, Minneapolis in 1947. He moved to California
and joined the Navy for one year as a Dentist, later transferring to
the Air Force for two more years, holding the rank of Captain. Subsequently,
he was in private practice in Richmond, California until 1993. He has
been a member of The American Dental Association for 48 years, a Fellow
in the American Institute of Oral Biology and is a past President of
the Contra Costa Dental Association.
Over time, Dr. Kristal came to question the use of mercury in dental
amalgams, as well as the safety of several other mainstream dental practices.
He became one of the pioneers in the new Holistic Dentistry Movement.
Throughout this period Dr. Kristal’s long-held belief in the connection
between dental health and the health of the whole body was affirmed,
as well as his conviction of the importance of sound nutrition. Throughout
much of his career as a Dentist, he incorporated nutritional counseling
into his practice, experimenting over the years with various different
systems of nutritional analysis. In 1993, he retired from his dental
practice, moving full-time into the practice of nutritional counseling.
He worked extensively with William Wolcott, Health Researcher, the originator
of the current form of Metabolic Typing. Dr. Kristal was especially
instrumental in developing the in-office testing procedures used by
practitioners of Metabolic Typing.
In a recent published study, Dr. Kristal found a link between Metabolic
Type and cancer. When those clients with a known diagnosis of cancer
were tested, 78% of those tested were of the Metabolic Type that has
problems processing fats and proteins.
Dr. Kristal is himself a lymphoma cancer survivor. He is a pioneer in
the emerging field of Metabolic Typing. He maintains a busy clinical
practice in San Rafael, California at his Metabolic Nutrition Clinic.
He also teaches Personalized Metabolic Nutrition Seminars to health
professionals world wide. Dr. Kristal is the author, with James Haig,
N.C. of The Nutrition Solution: A Guide to Your Metabolic Type.
