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. He has received advanced training in ancestral nutrition from the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health as well as The Center for Mind-Body Medicine in 2013, become a Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner in July 2014, and in September 2014 he became a Certified Primal Blueprint Expert (Mark Sisson’s new certification program he shared about in Episode 873).

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Danenberg discuss how he got excited about dental and gum health back in the early 1970s, he practiced traditionally for 35 years until learning about the laser-based LANAP® (Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure) protocol, why the laser treatment wasn’t the total answer for his patients, the nutritional course where he learned about ancestral health, why he shifted from being a traditional periodontist to using more modern methods for treating gum disease, his wife Sue didn’t support what he was doing but was willing to give it a chance, how his life shifted to being more primal thanks to the work of Mark Sisson, how he never heard of the work of Dr. Weston A. Price in any of his formal medical education, how he convinces his patients that tooth and gum health are related directly to their nutrition, many chronic health issues begin in dental and gum health, his work healing the gut health of his patients to improve their gum health, the results of the clinical study he has designed using real food-based, nutrient-dense supplements to see what happens to gum disease, why the C-Reactive Protein (the key inflammation marker) didn’t improve in the patients in the study, his collaboration with former podcast guest Ramiel Nagel, whether his study has been accepted to any medical journals, the self-professed limitations of his study, the company who wants him to do a study for them, and why you don’t need a commercial toothpaste to brush your teeth.
