Martha Tettenborn

​​​​​​​Martha Tettenborn, RD is a Registered Dietitian and certified Primal Health Coach with over 30 years of experience working in many areas of nutrition. She currently works in long-term care with a focus on nursing homes and gerontology. Her private practice, Primal RD, promotes a low-carb and high-fat lifestyle for healthy aging and chronic disease prevention. 
When diagnosed with Stage 1 ovarian cancer, Martha began exploring the research of the disease and discovered the science of cancer metabolism. This led her to develop and use a protocol of ketogenic diet with targeted therapeutic fasting to significantly impact her response to chemotherapy. Inspired by her own journey, Martha wants to help others see cancer differently—as an experience that will give you strength, wisdom, and more love for your body and life than ever before.
A featured speaker at the Low Carb Long Weekend Summit, Martha shares her knowledge as a dietitian and experience as a cancer patient to inform others about the power of metabolic interventions to support conventional cancer treatment. Martha also instructs courses teaching the ketogenic approach to cancer treatment for the Nutrition Network and Udemy.
A cancer survivor since 2018, Martha is an avid hiker, cyclist, live theatre backstage crew member, and a wannabe world adventurer.
