is at the core of
everything your body
does for you.

From health to sickness,
from energy to lethargy,
from happiness to depression –
the necessary nutrients your cells
receive or do not receive affect
everything about you. If only one cell
in your body is deprived, it slowly affects
the rest of you.

How should you
clean your teeth?
Let me count the ways!
When I was a kid
going to the dentist,
my dentist always told me
I had to brush harder.
What did that mean?
When my family moved to another city,
my new dentist told me totally different
things about brushing my teeth.

My Favorite Paleo Recipes:
Cashew Butter

Alvin H. Danenberg, DDS Nutritional Periodontist
February 28, 2018




Cashew ButterKids love peanut butter, but peanuts are legumes, and they have their problems. So, I prefer nut/seed butters like almond butter or cashew butter.


It’s easy for me to find organic almond butter (that meets my standards) online and in my healthier grocery stores. But, I have not been able to find organic cashew butter that is smooth and creamy without unhealthy, over-processed seed oils mixed into the butter. So, I tried to make my own with great success. I only use three ingredients: raw organic cashews, organic avocado oil, and Himalayan sea salt. Try it; you may love it; your kids may love it.


In the photo above, I spread it on slices of radish and sticks of celery. Create your own way to serve it.



  • 2 Cups organic raw cashews (use more cashews if you want it thicker)
  • 1/2 Cup organic avocado oil
  • 1/4 Tsp Himalayan sea salt



  1. Place all ingredients into power blender like the Vitamix® or the NutriBullet Rx®
  2. Blend until smooth
  3. Enjoy

    Does one need to soak the raw cashews overnight before blending?

    • Dr. Alvin Danenberg

      Mark Sisson suggests you could soak cashews for only 2-4 hours, but it probably is not necessary.
