Elle Russ chats with fellow Primal Health Coach Dr. Alvin Danenberg DDS - otherwise known as Dr. Dan to his patients. He divides his career into two periods: before and after a unique periodontal laser procedure coupled with the dynamics of ancestral nutrition. The laser-based LANAP® protocol and the importance of ancestral nutrition, he believes, are revolutionizing the treatment of gum disease.
His book, Crazy-Good Living, is based on ancestral nutrition and lifestyle. It incorporates his Four Pillars of Health: (1) nutrient-dense, anti-inflammatory foods, (2) restorative sleep, (3) efficient exercise, and (4) stress reduction.
Dr. Dan’s passion for periodontics in general, combined with evolutionary nutrition and lifestyle, is palpable. He currently sees patients at Bluffton Center for Dentistry in Bluffton, SC. To further his education in ancestral nutrition and lifestyle, he received advanced training at the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health as well as The Center for Mind-Body Medicine. In 2014, he received a Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner designation and then the Primal Health Coach Certification. In 2015, he was appointed to the faculty of the College of Integrative Medicine and created the college’s integrative periodontal teaching module. Then, in April 2017, he earned the designation of “ADAPT Trained Health Professional from Kresser Institute, the only functional medicine, and evolutionary health training company”.
