Tell me a bit about who you are.

Dr Kourosh Maddahi,

I have been a dentist in Beverly Hills for the past 35 years. In addition to treating more than 6,000 patients, I have worked with leading university laboratories to conduct non-biased, groundbreaking studies on the nature of the body’s defense systems and what happens when we introduce supposedly beneficial chemicals to our bodies.

Through the years, I’ve been featured as an expert on CBS, NBC, ABC, Fox News, Extreme Makeover London, The Doctors and Oprah. I also have given lectures all over the United States and been a part of a group that has published dozens of peer-reviewed papers on the subject of oral health.

Prior to writing The Toxic Overload, I published two best-selling books on oral health: Anti-Aging Dentistry and The Hidden Epidemic.

When did you first WANT to write a book?

At the start of the COVID pandemic.

When did you take a step to start writing? 

Within two weeks after coming up with what I wanted to write about.

How long did it take you to complete your first book from the first idea to release?

Six months

How long did it take you to complete your latest book from the first idea to release? 

Six months

Focusing on your latest release. What made you want to write The Toxic Overload? 

I felt there is a disconnect between oral health and whole-body health and, more importantly, with the oral microbiome. Our focus on killing all bacteria including good bacteria with the daily use of antibacterial and antimicrobial products, has led to widespread rises in autoimmune disease and allergies. I wanted to guide readers to a healthier life and a completely new path for lifetime hygiene and whole-body wellness.

What were your biggest challenges with writing The Toxic Overload?

To make sure there were enough peer-reviewed scientific studies cited in the book to make it as scientific as possible.

What was your research process for The Toxic Overload? 

My own background in the field of dentistry, as well as my own research and reading hundreds of different research publications on the connection between oral health and whole-body health.

How did you plan the structure of The Toxic Overload? 

I started with defining the microbiome and its relationship to the immune system. Then started explaining its effect on different parts of the body. This led to how gum disease effects different parts of the body and the supporting research around that connection. And finally, I came to the solution, which revolves around diet, and laying out plans to promote and protect the microbiome.

Did you get support with editing, and how much editing did your book need? 

Yes.  Caroline Dupuy Duggan has helped me with writing and editing of all three books.

What is the first piece of writing advice you would give to anyone inspired to write a book? 

Find a white space you feel passionate about and find what has inspired you within that space. 

Can you give me a hint about any further books you’re planning to write?

At this point I have not found any new inspirational idea that I feel compelled to write about.  However, knowing myself, sooner or later I will dive into new area and once I have completed my research, I will write about it. 

And, finally, are your proud of your accomplishment? Was it worth the effort? 

Absolutely, first of all I am proud of the research that has gone into each and every book.  Secondly, I am glad I have been able to help so many of my patients and others with the information I have provided in my books.
