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.
