Nutrition is at the core of everything your body does for you​

Each cell affects every other cell in your body. 

In August of 2019, Dr. Al Danenberg found himself in hospice care, waiting to die. He had been diagnosed with incurable multiple myeloma the year before, and retired from his 40+ years long career as a periodontist. Choosing to reject chemotherapy, and using his knowledge of the medical field, he created his Unconventional Cancer Protocols, designed to support the body’s natural healing process.

By May 8, 2020, his PET Scan showed no active cancer cells, and he was feeling better than he had in years. But cancer doesn’t define his story.  Dr. Al has devoted his life to helping others regain control of their health. Now, he’s using what he’s learned to help you learn to thrive – metabolically, physically, emotionally, intellectually and spiritually.

Over the past year, Dr. Al has been featured on over 50 podcasts, Facebook Lives, YouTube videos and interviews. His story is inspiring and gives a sense of hope to others who find themselves in a tough situation.  Give them a watch or listen now. 

“Dr. Al began as a conventionally trained dentist and periodontist, and before receiving multiple functional medicine certifications. I learned the oral and periodontal health is a strong indicator of general health, and more specifically gut health.

In the three months I worked with Dr. Al I changed from a paleo / whole foods based diet to a mostly carnivore diet. I used specific supplements to improve my microbiome, and went from bleeding gums a periodontal pockets to no bleeding and no pockets. Even without adding any exercise to my routine I lost about 10-15 pounds – most of it visceral fat!

I highly recommend Dr. Al’s 1:1 Coaching Program. I can’t think of a better way to find your health baseline, and get an actionable plan for improving it!”

“My experience with Dr Danenberg has been amazing! He is not only knowledgeable and offered me a wealth of information, but is an inspiration. He went above and beyond in our consultation to make sure I found the best qualified local professionals to help me with my dental problems, but answered my questions and provided information about diet and supplements to help heal my leaky gut and reduce inflammation. Dr Al is one of those rare individuals who is kind of heart and generous with his support. Thank you Dr Al!”

-Carol L. 

“When I got on the consultation, Dr. Danenberg had notes already prepared for our call. This preparation really allowed us to get into the “meat” (pun intended) of the conversation and really talk about what was ailing me and the potential solutions.

We discovered issues that no one else had been able to find and tell me about.

Dr. Danenberg’s bedside manner was the best I have ever encountered, and my spouse and I both left the conversation, looked at each other, and said “This was the best doctors visit/consultation we’ve ever had” – I left with very tangible next steps for healing, a feeling of hope and encouragement, and many new insights into my health that I have never heard about before.”

-Tyler P.

“Working with Dr. Al Danenberg has been so helpful in getting my health back on track. I’ve used his 12 week coaching program due to a severe periodontal condition. Not only did he support me in getting connected with a local dentist (what to look for), but has also conferenced with my dentist regarding the work he and I are doing together in healing my gut. He has coached me around my diet, fine tuning it, plus supplements. I really feel I am on the road to good health because of his coaching.”

-Celeste R. 

“I highly recommend Dr. Al as one of the leaders in integrative and functional medicine. His nutritional coaching program has greatly improved my overall health and shifted my mindset about health for the better. He guides you through the whole process and he is always available to answer your questions. I have gained valuable lessons that I will use for a lifetime.”
