Periodontist and primal nutrition practitioner Dr. Alvin Danenberg is our interview guest today in Episode 884 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”
In the context of ancestral health, a lot of focus tends to be on weight loss, diabetes and cardiovascular disease. But there are enthusiasts all across the broad spectrum of the medical profession who are taking the principles of low-carb, Paleo, primal and real food directly to their patients to help them improve the aspects of their health related to their field of expertise. That's exactly what a South Carolina-based nutritional periodontist named Dr. Alvin Danenberg is now doing for his patients after discovering the ancestral lifestyle in early 2013.
Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Danenberg discuss why he shifted from being a traditional periodontist to using more modern methods for treating gum disease, how he uses a laser-based LANAP® (Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure) protocol, how he never heard of the work of Dr. Weston A. Price in any of his formal medical education, the role that ancestral nutrition plays in his periodontal practice, the advanced training he's received in ancestral nutrition from the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health as well as The Center for Mind-Body Medicine in 2013, his completion in July 2014 to become a Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner and in September 2014 becoming a Certified Primal Blueprint Expert (Mark Sisson's new certification program), and the clinical study he has designed using real food supplements to see what happens to gum disease.
