Hi! My name is Krispin. Krispin means curly haired and yes I am. I was born in Boston, MA in 1946, and adopted 18 months later by my two wonderful, loving, parents. We moved to spend my grade school and high school years in the mid-west, just outside of Chicago in Aurora, Ill.
I am a Clinical Nutrition researcher and educator, writing, teaching, and consulting from Incline Village, NV, my new home after almost 40 years in the San Francisco/North Bay/ Marin County area.
I have been practicing and teaching Clinical Nutrition since 1968. In 1988 I received certification and licensing from the National Institute of Nutrition Education. My certification license is renewed yearly through continuing education programs. I am also licensed by the State of California to teach nutrition in California post-secondary schools and once settled, hope to continue teaching locally in my new home, Incline Village, NV. I work individually with clients nationally and internationally by phone, fax, mail and email as well as providing consulting services for authors, physicians and the supplement industry..
I began my education in nutrition during the sixties at the University of Vermont. (What we learned then is so far from what we know now it's embarrassing.) I have continued to study: biochemistry, psychology, exercise physiology, biochemical effects of child abuse; nutrition and its role in degenerative disease; toxicology, parasitology; effects and side effects of the use and abuse of legal and illegal drugs including nutrient deficiencies caused by prescription drugs; chemotherapy and radiation; nutrition and the media; nutrition and government, nutrition policies and economics; and the formulation, manufacturing and marketing of supplements. My latest research covers the human microbiome in health and disease MTHFR genetic mutations, nutrition applications in stem cell therapy, mitochondrial repair after injury and illness and the benefits of phosphoethanolamine in health and disease.
I am a frequent lecturer at post-secondary schools, colleges, community centers, hospitals, and medical centers. In 2009 I added the study of microbiology to my resume, in particular the study of the microbial inhabitants of humans and in November 2010 began to explore the subcellular biochemistry of vitamin C. My current research interest is mitochondrial health and regeneration and the implications of drugs/medications (legal and illegal) causing mitochondrial damage.
I am also something of a computer nut. I built (am chronically building) my own system and it is just the way I like it (until the next upgrade). I love the internet and spend a lot of time online doing research in my field. I am constantly pushing for more knowledge, about everything. I try to use what I learn to simplify things instead of making things more complicated- for myself and for my clients.
My first book, Naked at Noon, Understanding The Importance of Sunlight and Vitamin D was finished in 2002 (see info at http://sunlightd.org) and I am working on an update of my Practical Nutrition Workbook to be ready in January 2018.
I am a dog person. With grandson Bishop. my current canine, Bruges at 10 weeks. He is now four years old. Bruges works as a Goose Patrol dog in Incline Village, NV.
And my greatest blessing of all- I have two mostly grown, dearly loved children, five amazing grandsons and one beautiful granddaughter.Daughter Bridgett, with first born (2000) James. On occasion she 'scares me silly' proving her point. She often makes me laugh with joy. From 2014 to the present Bridgett with a degree in psychology works as a Certified Personal Trainer in Novato and Corte Madera, CA. Her Facebook page shows support for her clients and followers. Besides boot camps and daily classes her clients (and family) attend numerous 'mudders' throughout the region including Tough Mudders in the Tahoe area.
To the right. Bishop, James and Riley. My La Crosse grandsons at a tournament June 2014:)Two years ago I was blessed with a fourth grandson, Jo-Jo, pictured on your left relaxing with his dad Joey. In September 2017 two more wonderful grandchildren, Rocco and Callie entered my life. My daughter had a 'twin surprise'. Pictures soon.
Elden's wife is Zsuzsanna Major from Hungary by way of Canada and finally the US. They met on the job in Pasadena, CA in April of 2001 and married June 8, 2004. They have a home on the Russian River and a temporary 'work home' in Burlingame, CA.
I am still discovering the many gifts and talents Zsuzsanna brings to our family. Most important, she makes my son very happy (and I think it goes the other way too).

OK, I'm done now. Kids, you are on the net and on the page and always in my heart.
