THP 006: How To Treat Gum Disease Naturally With Periodontist Alvin Danenberg
Happiness can essentially be boiled down to three key things; Something to do, Someone to love, & Something to look forward to - Dr Gordon Livingston
Dr Alvin Danenberg is a periodontist with more than four decades of clinical experience who practices holistic dentistry.
In 2006, Dr Danenberg had a stroke, and part of his journey back to health was learning more deeply about nutrition and lifestyle. Through this experience, it became clear that his patient's dental problems weren’t happening in isolation and so he started incorporating holistic care into his practice.
In this conversation, we discuss gums disease and how Dr Danenberg is using laser therapy (LANAP) to help his patients heal from this. We also address health in general and how important the gut is for not just dental health but the overall health of the person.
