Dr Alvin H Danenberg, DDS is an American periodontist, which is a specialty of dentistry, in Bluffton, South Carolina. He incorporates primal nutrition and primal lifestyle with his laser protocol for the treatment of advanced gum disease. His recommendation of nutrient-dense, anti-inflammatory foods emphasizes low-carb and an active lifestyle. That’s based on the understanding of the importance of gut and oral health for overall health. Dr Dannenberg is also a certified functional medicine practitioner, primal health coach and an ADAPT (Advanced Diagnostics And Personalized Treatment) coach. ADAPT is the Kresser Institute’s 12-month program integrating functional medicine and ancestral nutrition and lifestyle. While his patients are mostly adults, Dr Danenberg has developed a 12-Week Total Body Coaching Program, which he offers to patients or anyone interested. In it, he describes how the parent is the model for the child. Children will learn to eat nutrient-dense, anti-inflammatory foods if those are the foods that parents provide, he says. Dr Danenberg’s latest book is Crazy-Good Living – Healthy Gums, Healthy Gut, Healthy Life.

Dr Maggie Elsey has an orthodontic practice in Gloucestershire, England, which she set up from scratch 16 years ago. She is married, with four teenage boys. Having struggled to lose weight, she thought that there must be something that causes people to become diabetic and obese, which was not CICO (calories-in, calories-out). She started to research fat metabolism and simple biochemical pathways, which she had learned as an undergrad and postgrad. She came across Dr Robert Lustig and his amazing youtube lecture, then Peter Attia’s Ted talk followed by Gary Taubes and David Gillespie – then everyone else!

Dr Ronald Lareman is a South African dentist who has an interest in whole-food healthy living.

He is co-admin of Facebook group High Fat Low Carb – Mosselbaai.
