ADHD

Our grandson has really had a tough few years of his life. His parents gave him to us when he was 5 years old. He was diagnosed with ADHD in the 2nd grade, which caused him to be incapable of being attentive in school as well as at home with homework. He was put on Concerta which not only was a very short-term fix to his behavior problems, but added to them as well with inability to sleep and swings of highs and lows. He is now being treated by Dr. Stengler with naturopathic medications and is finally able to sleep 9 1/2 to 10 hours per night; his appetite is excellent; and most of all, his temperament is much more evened out and he’s focusing much better. What a difference!

“Dr. Stengler has been treating my son for both ADHD and asthma. He is wonderful and in 6 months his asthma was cleared up and completely gone. No more inhalers. Also we did not need to medicate my son at all for ADHD. Thanks Dr. Stengler”

ALLERGIES

I am a seasonal allergy sufferer with complications involving sinuses and asthma. I am also fairly intolerant of “traditional” medications…I am the .0001% of the population who experiences a negative reaction/side effect to any number of ingredients that are contained in an antihistamine, inhaler, and/or prednisone (in extreme cases). This year the east coast (specifically southern New Jersey and Philadelphia, PA) “bloomed” early. We had THE wettest/snowiest winter on record, and plants/trees/flowers all decided to begin a very early Spring – in MARCH. I contacted Dr. Stengler and, as always, he repsponded quickly to my email and we set up a telephone consultation. He and I worked out a plan to take:

Homeopathic Sabadilla 30C – take two pellets three times daily when having symptoms
Quercetin – 500 mg twice daily
Inflammation Powder – 1-2 scoops

I am THRILLED to report that I was medicine-free the ENTIRE season! Thanks, Dr. Stengler!

ANTI-AGING

Maintaining a youthful appearance is important to a woman, especially as she ages. To help maintain youth, keeping hormonal balance is essential. Dr. Stengler has had me on natural hormones for 8 years and I can tell you that it has certainly helped me in looking young and feeling energetic. I will be 70 years of age in 2010 and feel better than I felt at 40. Dr. Stengler is an anti-aging expert!”

Shirley Park - Del Mar, CA

Before seeing Dr Stengler I was fatigued, having problems sleeping and a painful shoulder. On my 66th birthday, it was a joy to feel so much better.

ARTHRITIS / JOINT PAIN

I am 59 years old with severe arthritis in both knees, both elbows, my right hip, and both hands. My joints burn with pain and I require pain medication to be able to sleep. The tendons in my lower legs and feet would tighten up causing additional discomfort. I have been in pain for seven years. An x-ray showed cartilage loss in my knees.

I received treatment from Dr Stengler and within three weeks his program of diet, homeopathies, and natural anti-inflammatories (Collagen Boost) allowed me to be off all pain medications. My joint pain is over 70% improved and my tendons no longer tighten up. Pretty amazing for 3 weeks of treatment! I have now insisted my husband become a patient of Dr Stengler’s.

Magaly Dupleich - San Diego, CA

“I first heard of of Dr. Stengler when I read an article he wrote about a patient that suffered from severe arthritis and how within three weeks his pain disappeared from taking MSM. At that time my hands were so painful I was having a very hard time driving and I had been very sick for thel ast year from exposure to mildew and breathing dry wall in a condo we had rented. On top of that I had stopped my prescription for hormone pills prioer year and I has having hot flashes for the first time. My knee joints hurt so much that my doctor at Kaiser thought I’d be a good candidate for surgery. And to top it off I had no energy whatsoever. I ordered MSM and started the quantity that was in the article. Within three days all my pain disappeared. I needed to find Dr. Stengler(and did)!

I am happy to say that within six months I was on my way to feeling healthy. And by month nine I had enough energy to start losing weight. It is now one year later and I’m down 30 lbs, absolutely no aches or pains in my hands, joints, or anywhere else. I feel like a million dollars and for 62 years young that is great. I can’t thank Dr. Stengler enough.”

Severe Arthritis, Arthritis

“I was diagnosed with polymyalgia rheumatic by a rheumatologist. This is a very painful, inflammatory condition that causes muscle pain and stiffness. I was offered steroids as a treatment but declined due to my concern of side effects. I had a lot of pain just taking small steps and could not bend down or even comb my hair or dress myself. I saw Dr. Mark Stengler at his clinic and he put me on a natural program to reduce the pain and inflammation. I had significant improvement in 4 to 6 weeks and fully pain free after 10 weeks. I think Dr. Stengler is great. Many thanks to you Dr. Stengler.”

Berith Engstrom

Arthritis, Muscle Pain

“The pain in both my hands was greatly relieved after taking Dr. Stengler’s MSM and Collagen for 3 weeks, Before this I was experiencing pain in both hands on a daily basis and I am very thankful to Dr. Stengler for this. Have had this pain in the right hand for several years.”

Christine Yen

Arthritis

“Prior to coming to Dr Stengler I had chronic pain in right shoulder. Since taking Collagen Boost given to me by Dr Stengler in one month I have improved by 80%.”

Connie Murray

Arthritis

“I’ve been a chronic pain patient since 1995 and became permanently disabled due to further chronic pain caused by cervical and thoracic laminectomies in 1999. The chronic pain, with accompanying migraines, was 24/7 and muscular-skeletal. Synthetic opiates and chiropractic care became my only treatment after having tried every drug, physical therapy, acupuncture, and pain management shots.

I then saw Dr Stengler on “Know the Cause” tv program and my life has never been the same since. He introduced me to cold laser treatments for the pain and stiffness in my head, neck, shoulders, and back. After just one treatment I felt total relief. It was miraculous for me for I have this so long and thought I would have the stiffness in my head and neck forever. My range of motion was no longer limited—I could turn my head to look over my shoulder, and the migraines subsided dramatically. It’s been about 9-10 months now and the results have been permanent. Thank you God and Dr Stengler-you’ve been the answer to my prayers.”

Joanne Gavlick

Arthritis

“I have Psoriatic Arthritis, and was frustrated by years of being seen by main stream doctors and having no solutions except daily prescription drugs.  In one visit with Dr. Stengler, he created a strategy that allowed me to discontinue all of my prescription medication within a few weeks.  Key in my recovery have been the discovery of a gluten allergy, and the regular use of Meriva, a natural anti- inflammatory.  My introduction to Dr. Stengler has been life changing, and I tell everyone I know that he can truly work miracles.”

Kara McDonald

ASTHMA

I have had chronic asthma and allergies since I was eight years old. At 53, I ended up with lung damage. I had used many western medications that caused unhealthy side effects. Dr. Stengler suggested I try glutathione treatments. I did treatments daily for three weeks and now only need to do them twice a weeki. My sinus, allergy and asthma symptoms have greatly improved and I no longer need to use western medicine to control my allergy symptoms. I am thrilled!

Terry Gopadze - Del Mar, CA

When I brought my daughter, Catie to Dr. Stengler, she was suffering from severe asthma, sleep disturbances, constant severe congestion, enuresis and digestive problems. Her pediatrician wanted to put her on a breathing machine at night and had prescribed multiple steroids. They could find no cause for her illness. After having Catie tested for food and environmental sensitivities, and using homeopathy to desensitize her to many things, the asthma disappeared. The other problems all followed suit, one after another. We discovered she had a severe allergy to wheat and put her on a WFGF diet. Now, a year later, Catie glows. Her constitution is very strong, the allergies (all but wheat) are gone, and she is a vibrant child. She can, for the first time in her six years of life, breathe through her nose and smell food. I am indebted to Dr. Stengler and Andrea Kiesel for their outstanding treatment of Catie and for giving her back her childhood.

Mary Mollway - Murrieta, CA

I came to Dr Stengler a week ago with such difficulty breathing that I was practically living on my rescue inhaler. During my appointment, I was given a glutacyst (natural nebulized treatment) breathing treatment. This treatment seemed to provide immediate relief, and after having this treatment for several days, I feel so much better. Thank you Dr Stengler for giving me this highly effective natural treatment.

Tami Dickerson - Del Mar, CA

In most of my adult life, I suffered from allergy and tiredness, among other things. In 2007, I had three bad colds with bronchitis. My doctor diagnosed me with asthma. That’s when I came to Dr. Stengler who then diagnosed me with Adrenal Fatigue and recommended testing for food and environmental sensitivities. The adrenal treatments, homeopathy, and gluten free diet improved my health condition significantly over a period of time. I no longer have asthma. Energy level is good.  Allergies are gone. I feel so good to be able to breathe from my nose when I sleep.  I am very thankful for the outstanding treatments Dr. Stengler and Andrea Kiesel have given me.

ATHLETES

I am a 48 year old male and have maintained a high level of fitness all my life. I consulted Dr. Stengler approximately 18 months ago after seeing some very interesting concepts he had on his website and in his newsletter.

I am a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu competitor and instructor and I train and teach daily. I was interested in what Dr. Stengler could do to increase my overall level of health and fitness to higher levels as well as increase available energy levels. After full blood and urine screening and approximately three months of fine-tuning with my diet and supplement regime, I feel that we achieved great success.

Since then, I have very seldom experienced colds or illness through increased immune response. I have a very stable and predictable energy level that is higher than any recent years. My workout recovery is also noteworthy. I feel that I recover from lengthy demanding workouts with much greater consistency than ever before and with less inflammation of muscle tissues and joints. I sleep very well and my skin and hair see to be warding off the aging process far better than before. My lean body mass has increased and my ability to stay lean is also improved.

The supplements I commenced under Dr. Stengler’s care are as follows:

  • Encinitas Whole Health “Supreme Multi”
  • Encinitas Whole Health “Adrenal Force”
  • Encinitas Whole Health “Immune Blast”
  • Coenzyme Q-10
  • Omega 3 Fish Oils
  • Additional B Complex
  • D-Ribose
  • L-Glutamine
  • MSM
  • Glucosamine Condroitin

I am grateful for the help I have received from Dr. Stengler and recommend his services highly to those who have specific needs as well as those interested in increased overall health.

BREAST CANCER

I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2005. After lumpectomy surgery, I was looking for options to radiation and chemotherapy. Dr. Mark Stengler was very helpful in helping me relieve my stress by giving me real healthy options to my wellness. He told me about tests my HMO would never approve and the results of the tests helped me remove toxins and improve my immune system. Dr. Stengler was patient, helpful and respectful to me as a Muslim woman and an African-American. I learned how I could make changes in my diet that would improve the quality of my life.

Khaleelah Abdul-Kareem - San Diego, CA

Diagnosed with Paget’s Disease of the breast and high grade intraductal carcinoma in July of 2003, I embarked upon a six month body detoxification and immune system building program prior to having a masectomy in December of that year. I employed nutritional advice from many holistic publications and health practicioners, including Dr. Mark Stengler. Surgical pathology report confirmed NO TRACE of the carcinoma upon masectomy. All that remained was ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS), considered a PRE-cancer. My immune system actually reversed the high grade carcinoma.

Cosette Tsouras – Lakeside, CA

After being diagnosed with breast cancer, I went to see Dr. Mark Stengler per referral from a friend, and after the recommendations I not only felt better after a lumpectomy but also healed up much quicker. I was up and about in two days. I have changed what I eat and take supplements prescribed and feel better than I ever have. Thank you, Mark Stengler ND.

CANCER

Read Dr. Stengler’s article Mistletoe Extract – Cancer Breakthrough
From the article: “Mistletoe extract is most often used in conjunction with standard cancer treatments such as chemotherapy and/or radiation. It has been found to increase the effectiveness of, and reduce the side effects from, conventional therapies and to improve patients’ immunity and quality of life, including vitality, sleep and appetite. I regularly prescribe mistletoe extract to my patients—to help those with cancer battle the disease and as a postcancer treatment.” Read full Mistletoe Extract article

Dr. Stengler has been a huge help to me. I saw him after I had cancer and his insight and guidance was invaluable. His knowledge and God-given wisdom have worked to improve my health. Following his advice has allowed me to train to run my first marathon next week.

Jay Yanelli

“I am so delighted and thankful for Dr. Stengler’s medical and spiritual direction in healing my cervical dysplasia. For the last six years, I have had many general MD’s and specialists recommend treatment programs that failed. Dr. Stengler helped me detoxify from heavy metals and use homeopathy, vitamins and herbs to enhance my own immune system to heal. Because of his commitment to wellness being defined in terms of the body, mind and spirit working together, he also encouraged me to visualize spiritual healing on a daily basis. This year has been stressful with personal family issues, so it is especially gratifying to experience healing. I thank Dr. Stengler for his continued integrity in the medical field by practicing medicine with the patients’ best interests at heart.”

“In October of 2013 I was diagnosed with CIN3, also called cervical dysplasia and Carcinoma In Silu, which is caused by an HPV infection in the cervix. I had been to two doctors and an oncologist who all insisted that I should have surgery immediately to remove the high level pre-cancerous cells before they became invasive cancer. I did not want to have surgery, so I started researching immediately and saw that other women had been able to reverse this serious condition through holistic treatment and hormone balancing. I found Dr. Stengler and scheduled an appointment.

Dr. Stengler ran blood tests to see what I was deficient in and had me do the saliva home test to determine my hormone levels. He put me on an aggressive program specifically to target CIN3, which included bi-weekly IV treatments, numerous supplements, and a nightly progesterone cream. I followed his advice and also began drinking green juice daily, and he also suggested that I cut out all sugar and alcohol. I followed the program religiously and went for another Pap test 8 weeks later. I was hoping that the CIN level would at least have gone down a bit, but to the shock of the doctors and oncologist,  there was no trace of cervical dysplasia OR the HPV infection! The doctor asked to monitor me every three months for a year and I was so happy at the results I decided to continue on a modified version of the program, especially because cervical dysplasia does ten to return in patients who have the HPV infection if they go back to their old dietary habits.

I really loved my bi-weekly visits to the Stengler Center. Everyone is so friendly and helpful and positive, and the informative videos from Dr. Stengler’s TV show on PBS that are playing in the rooms were very helpful and uplifting as well. If I had not found the Stengler Center, I would have had half of my cervix removed and had to take a leave of absence from work…all unnecessary, but the regular doctors don’t want to admit that or even look into it. Thank God for Dr. Stengler’s leadership in this area of alternative and holistic healing. I am so thrilled with the results and so grateful to Dr. Stengler!!!”

CAROTID ARTERY DISEASE

I was diagnosed with plaque buildup in one of my carotid arteries that feeds my brain. Not interested in surgery or drug therapies, I became a patient of Dr. Stengler. He put me on a strategic nutritional protocol to eradicate my plaque. After one year I had a repeat ultrasound of my carotid arteries. They were 100% clear. The attending doctor stated ,”This is unusual, I don’t ever see that type of reversal.” I guess I shouldn’t be surprised since Dr. Stengler’s natural treatment reversed my wife’s newly diagnosed Type 2 diabetes. Thank you Dr. Stengler, I can now enjoy my recent retirement in great health!

CERVICAL DYSPLASIA

I came to Dr. Stengler in the spring of 2009 because I had been diagnosed with CIN III precancerous cells in my cervix. The diagnosis also revealed that I had HPV. I was told that the HPV I had was the cause of the precancerous cells, and that this particular type of HPV is the typeof virus that leads to cancer. Three doctors—my personal physician, a gynecologist and a gynecological oncologist—told me I needed to get a complete hysterectomy to prevent cancer in my cervix.

I did not want to get a hysterectomy, so I asked Dr. Stengler if he could possibly help me to turn the diagnosis around. After testing my hormones with saliva samples that were sent to a lab, he prescribed a number of different vitamins and supplements, as well as a nightly progesterone cream. I followed Dr. Stengler’s advice and followed the protocol he suggested for approximately twelve weeks. Then, on August 31, 2009, I was re-tested by a gynecologist for HPV virus and I also received a Pap test.

I am happy to report that the Pap test results were ‘Normal’ and the HPV test results were ‘Negative’. I was told to return in six months for another Pap test, and also told that I will need a Pap test every six months for two years. I am thrilled with these results and I will keep you informed of future Pap test results.

CHILDREN'S HEALTH

My son is 6 years old and healthy now. He was having to visit the doctor more and more often after turning one year old. He continued to get ill with colds, bronchitis and pneumonia. He was diagnosed with asthma/allergies and sent home with a nebulizer at 18 months old. We used it so often that we left it out on the bathroom counter for readiness. Asthma is genetic in our family. He continued to get sick very often. The doctors put him on antibiotics, Albuterol and Prednisolone. Then, several doctors recommended Pulmicort. After reading the leaflet on these medicines, I was very concerned about the side effects. I feel that steroids are a temporary relief and don’t help to cure the health problem. I didn’t want my son to be challenged with asthma impeding on physical activity as well as being ill all the time.

I sought help through Dr. Stengler. After evaluating my son, he recommended diet changes, supplements and homeopathic remedies. We cut back dramatically on dairy products and began a regimen of vitamin C, natural antihistamine, Omega 3, probiotics, and other great supplements and homeopathics. Dr. Stengler, by his incredible knowledge, has figured out how to keep my son well! My son’s health has continued to improve for the last 20 months, and he’s not battling the common cold turning into pneumonia or bronchitis. Dr. Stengler is our “Super Doctor!” Thank you, Dr. Stengler!

Susie Wickman - Lakeside, CA

Dr. Stengler has worked wonders with my daughter! She has gone from being a wild, impulsive, and out-of-control child to a much calmer child. She is enjoying life and sleeping much better. We are thankful we tried Dr. Stengler as opposed to more conventional approaches and were very happy with the outcome. I highly recommend Dr. Stengler.

Kayla S. - San Diego, CA

We are so grateful to Dr. Stengler for helping our daugthter. After trying counseling and antidepressants, it is a relief to know my daughter can be helped without drugs and their side effects. When she was on antidepressants, she was even more tired during the day and couldn’t sleep at night. After reviewing her results from her neurotransmitter with Dr. Stengler, it all made sense why she is the way she is…depressed, tired and unmotivated. My husband and I truly believe her amino acid supplements are increasing her serotonin levels. She is a happier, motivated person. She doesn’t sleep or nap like she used to. We feel her low serotonin levels are genetic and are so happy she has an alternate path to follow instead of drugs. We are so impressed with her results. Thank you for all of your help and support.

Elizabeth W. - San Diego, CA

Dr. Mark Stengler’s “Transform Your Body Naturally” is the most comprehensive, informative natural health cure/homeopathic material I’ve seen on personal health, wellness and natural solutions by herbal and natural remedies. I highly recommend this to anyone interested in treating the pathology or root cause sumptoms and problems for their core cure and ultimate resoltuion for longterm prevention, better health maintenance and lifestyle enhancement.

CHOLESTEROL LEVELS

For more information about treating high cholesterol, read Dr. Stengler’s article: Beware! Your Cholesterol Numbers Might Not Mean What You Think! “Based on the latest research, it is the size of the cholesterol particles, not simply how much cholesterol we have, that is key to cardiovascular health. Here’s what you need to know about cholesterol particle size…

I have had elevated cholesterol for over 10 years. Although my diet was healthy, my doctor recommended more exercise on a regular basis to help lower my cholesterol. This resulted in a minimal change so the doctor then decided that Lipitor (a statin drug) was necessary to reduce my cholesterol.

Over a period of 8 years, I have been on four different statins. In each case, having severe leg pain compromised my mobility. A few months ago, I decided to quit taking the statins and search for a natural method of lowering my cholesterol. After reading an article by Dr. Stengler, I consulted with him about my problem. I took his advice and added red yeast rice, CoQ10, and a thyroid supplement to my daily regimen. In three months, my cholesterol dropped from 269 to 202 and my LDL dropped from 164 to 102. I feel great and have side effects from this supplement program. I am so fortunate to have found Dr. Stengler. My life is dramatically improving because of his help.

Sandra McCuistion - Bedford, TX

My cholesterol and triglycerides have been high since I was a teenager. Since my diet was healthy and I exercised, most doctors concluded that these high levels were hereditary. I tried to lower them by exercising and changing my diet even more, but it didn’t work. Finally, my doctor suggested I take a statin drug with possible liver damage as a side effect. Instead, I visited Dr. Stengler and in 6 weeks both my cholesterol and triglycerides were dramatically lowered. My cholesterol went from 287 to 185, my LDL from 184 to 113, and my triglycerides from 268 to 131. I am thrilled with my results and I am convinced that finding Dr. Stengler was a great blessing. I feel great, both physically and emotionally. I know my health will continue to be good because of Dr. Stengler’s help. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!

Laura Swirski - San Diego, CA

“Since seeing Dr Stengler in October, 2013 my hemoglobin A1C has dropped from 6.1 to 5.9, my total LDL has dropped from 154 to 70, total cholesterol from 236 to 134, and total APOB100 dropped from 115 to 66! I’m totally off all my prescription medications except for one an plan to replace that with an herbal supplement shortly. I’ve lost 25 + pounds and feel 200% better physically, mentally, and spiritually. Thank you, thank you, thank you!”

DIABETES

Dr. Stengler saved my life. When I first came to his office I had pain and weight loss, candida, diabetic mellitus (Type 2 diabetes), HBP (high blood pressure), H-pylori (stomach infection), ulcers, constipation, panic attacks, depression, and more. He diagnosed my gallbladder problems and got good advice on my nutritional paniculitis medicine. He gave me acid support (for reflux) and brought me to my “now state”. No H pylori, no diabetes, no more depression. I am on my way to good health and recovery. Thank you Doctor Stengler!!!

Alla Kirichenko - San Diego, CA

After being diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes, which brought about daily insulin shots in the abdomen, I suffered significant loss of eyesight and internal organ complications. I consulted with Dr. Mark Stengler and he provided me with a protocol of diet and natural medicines that balanced out my blood sugar levels naturally!. These amazing natural remedies God has provided are described in his eye-opening book, The Natural Physician’s Healing Therapies. Since following his protocol, I have recovered and am free from insulin shots. I also regained the ability to read again. I highly recommend Dr. Stengler and his book, which are nothing short of lifesaving. Thank you, Dr. Stengler!

Pastor Shawn Mitchell - Oceanside, CA

In the Bible, the book of Genesis tells us the story of creation, and God makes an interesting statement in Genesis 2:16: “And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat”. This tells us that everything that man would ever need was already here, and all we would need would be someone to guide us to the appropriate ones that would heal us of any problem we might encounter. Such a man is Mark Stengler, N.D., and in his book, The Natural Physician’s Healing Therapies, Dr. Mark reveals to us which ones would produce natural cures for the illnesses that would befall man.

Late April 2005, I was diagnosed with type 2, insulin-resistant diabetes. My fasting glucose was 220 and my A1c was 9.8! Not wanting to take prescription drugs with their dangerous side effects, I immediately consulted Dr. Mark’s book mentioned above. I got a glucose meter and began charting my readings. I changed my eating habits and in five days was able to show my local doctor that I would be able to get my diabetes under control without medication! In the meantime, I got Dr. Balch’s new book, co-authored by Dr. Stengler, Prescription for Natural Cures and started learning what I needed to take. After showing this to my local doctor, I accepted that doctor’s challenge to try this for three weeks and bring back more spreadsheet data.

By the end of the three week challenge, my fasting glucose reading was in the low to mid-130 ranges! It was obvious that with God’s help, I could do this without medication. I continued consulting the two books and experimenting. I got my second blood test last week, and today, September 20, 2005, my local doctor went over the report with me. My fasting glucose was 126 and my A1c is 7.1… pretty good for three to four months! I continue to research and know I will continue to get my metabolism back in balance. I owe it all first to God, then Doctors Balch and Stengler and their books.

DIGESTIVE PROBLEMS AND FOOD ALLERGIES

I am a female, 88 years old. I suffered for over 40 years with gastric reflux, irritable bowel syndrome and off and on diarrhea with no relief. Prescribed medicine was Ranitidine and to alert myself on food/eating habits. Thereafter, the problem became more severe. Colonoscopy, esophagus, stomach tests were done in that order in 2001-2003. The test result showed no abnormality and therefore nothing else was done. I began a severe choking with food leading to vomiting of blood. I lost weight, with no appetite, no strength. The diarrhea became worse. Any food ingested seemed to pass within an hour or at worse, in 1/2 hour. I lost weight further.

At this desperate time, I was able to have Mark Stengler’s phone consultation. Lab work for urine and comprehensive digestive stool test analysis was ordered. The tests identified several problems and alternative medicines were sent to me accordingly. To my great relief and surprise, after taking products prescribed by Dr. Stengler, I could eat, taste foods, experienced no difficulty in swallowing, had no gastric upset and no severe diarrhea. My appetite increased and I gained a pound for the first time in several years. The joy of being able to eat without fear, and having regained physical strength, I am ready to enjoy life again. This is to testify that the expertise of Dr. Stengler and power and effectiveness of alternative medicine overrides western medicine.

Hatsue Shiroyama - San Francisco ,CA

My 82 year old father had always been incredibly youthful and active for his age – still snow skiing and visiting the gym several times a week. When he discovered he had Crohn’s Disease, his health and vitality quickly plummeted and he lost so much blood at one point, he required transfusions. Traditional treatments using steroids offered very limited benefit and the side effects were horrible. After consulting with Dr. Stengler and following his natural regime of health-building supplements and food sensitivity protocol – my dad looks and feels the best he has in years. He has his energy and sense of humor back. Now, I’ll never be able to catch up with him on the ski slope!

Danna Demetre - El Cajon, CA

Recently, I was unknowingly stricken with my first bout of Diverticulitis. Unfortunately, I live 200 miles from Dr. Stengler’s office so with unrelenting pain in my lower left abdomen and a fever, I decided to see my medical doctor to determine the cause. Apparently my symptoms were classic and he made a quick diagnosis and prescribed me strong antibiotics and an anti-inflammatory, both with some serious potential side effects. He stated that if I got worse, I would have to be hospitalized. Since I have a history of so many drug allergies and sensitivities, I decided to first consult with Dr. Stengler before going any further. (My husband, son and I have been patients of Dr. Stengler for nearly three years and we have come to rely on his expertise with all of our health care issues.)

I spoke with Dr. Stengler regarding my diagnosis and my hesitancy of taking the prescribed medicines. Dr. Stengler was very understanding of the situation and immediately knew what regimen would be best for me to use and had me begin treatment right away. I was so relieved to have his support and felt confident that I would be better once I followed his advice. By the next day, there was noticeable improvement. For the next several days, Dr. Stengler continually stayed in contact with me for updates on my progress and to add or change the regimen if necessary. Needless to say, Dr. Stengler successfully got me through this illness entirely through the use of naturopathic and homeopathic medicine. Totally side effect free!

Later, I spoke with my medical doctor who wanted to know how the medication he prescribed had helped. I explained that I wasn’t comfortable take the prescriptions and that I chose instead to consult with my Naturopathic doctor and follow his regimen. Suprisingly, my medical doctor said that he was all in favor of whatever worked for me, but confessed that he had no knowledge of the useful recommendations Dr. Stengler had made. I must add that I have worked in the health care industry for many years and I can honestly say that I have never witnessed such compassion or quality of care from a physician, not until I experienced it first hand from Dr. Stengler. I feel truly blessed to have such a kind and knowledgeable professional watching over me and my family.

Dr. Stengler helped solve severe stomach problems. I saw him after colon surgery, which didn’t solve any problem. He found my intestines to be inflamed and that I was allergic to fructose. He solved these severe problems for me. Thank goodness!

William Annas - Palm Desert, CA (78 year old male)

Dr. Stengler has doubled my quality of life with a simple remedy of his glutamine powder. I was experiencing severe stomach pain, which was progressively getting worse over the years. After one visit and a few days of taking the powder, my problem was completely solved. Amazing!

Jennifer Will - San Diego, CA

After a colonoscopy my bowels became very distressed. I was having diarrhea, going up to 20 times per day and became incontinent. Over the counter diarrhea meds didn’t work and neither did prescription strength ones. (My doctor diagnosed me with Crohn’s disease.) I even detoxed myself using dietary means to no avail. After about 4 months of trying to solve this I finally saw Dr. Stengler who gave me 2 homeopathic medicines to use. In about 2 weeks the frequency of bowel movements had decreased and they were becoming firm. By week 4 of this treatment things were back to normal and I was no longer incontinent.”

Bryan Ott, San Diego, CA

After 22 years of going to doctors looking for the cause of my IBS smptoms, I finally came to Dr. Stengler to see if a Nutritional Doctor could find the source of my digestive problems. Dr. Stengler recommended an allergy test for gluten. After geting the results that I have gluten sensitivity, I started a gluten free diet. It has been less than six months on the diet and I consider myself cured! I thank Dr. Stengler for a simple solution after only one visit.
Thanks.

I have struggled with digestive problems, as well as food and environmental allergies for many years. From the first time I met Dr. Stengler, it was obvious he had an incredible knowledge of naturopathic medicine, as well as a genuine concern for people. Although I had visited many doctors during the past few years and learned a great deal about my condition, I had not been able to achieve satisfactory relief. Dr. Stengler has helped identify my allergens, and started me on a program of allergy drops, which is already having a very positive effect. In addition, he has fine-tuned my diet and supplement program, which has been a tremendous help. Whereas many allopathic doctors tend to treat symptoms, Dr. Stengler is genuinely concerned with getting to, and eliminating, the root cause of your problems. Although it is a 200-mile round trip from my home in Diamond Bar to Dr. Stengler’s office in Encinitas, it is worth every minute of my time to visit a doctor who truly understands and can help resolve my health concerns.

Steven Geil - Diamond Bar, CA

I have been suffering from the symptoms of ulcerative colitis for the past six years, with each successive year becoming harder to handle. I had tried several forms of alternative healing including acupuncture, Chinese herbs, contact reflex analysis and various supplements and potions. My last flare-up had been so severe that I was placed on steroidal medication which had serious side effects. My mother suggested I visit Dr. Stengler while on a business trip in San Diego. She was familiar with his newsletter and success with these types of conditions. After my initial consultation in March 2007, began taking a variety of supplements and powders and, after receiving the results of my food sensitivity test, eliminated wheat and other trigger foods from my diet. Within six weeks, I noticed a remarkable improvement. Eight months later, my symptoms have almost entirely disappeared as well as the anxiety caused by having this disease. Dr. Stengler’s treatment has also helped to rebalance my hormones and stress levels. While I may never be completely rid of the disease, Dr. Stengler has helped me to make it manageable and regain control of my life.

I had diarrhea and vomiting on and off for three months very badly. I made an appointment with Dr. Stengler and he diagnosed a gallbladder problem.

Immediately after starting his treatment I felt better and now I feel just perfect!

Manfred Wenzel - Garden Grove, CA

In 2006, I noticed that I was having more and more problems with digestive issues. I spent so much money and time trying to be diagnosed by traditional doctors. I remember taking a list of symptoms to my doctor, only to be told that he didn’t have time to deal with them all and to “pick one” from the list. That was the last time I saw that doctor. After seeing numerous other doctors and going through as many tests (and spending a lot of money), I gave up and assumed that I would just have to live with these problems.

Then in the beginning of 2007, I developed further medical problems: severe arthritis, lack of energy, headaches, and blisters forming for no apparent reason. I thought I was destined to be in a wheelchair by the end of the year! Again I sought help from traditional doctors with similar results. Only this time, it was suggested that I take medications that I knew would eventually be harmful to me and start me on that road to taking more and more medications to counteract the side effects of the medicines that were supposed to help me.

Finally, I decided to try natural remedies and sought out Dr. Mark Stengler at Encinitas Whole Health. Dr. Stengler took the time to listen to ALL of my concerns and by doing so was able to deduce that I could have Gluten sensitivity. The tests were ordered and were conclusive. He then gave me a list of natural supplements I could take to counteract the damage that occurred by ingesting wheat, rye and barley products. He also counseled me on products to avoid and helpful websites I could visit to further understand my condition.

I am now almost back to my normal, healthy self with no unhealthy side effects! I have been telling almost everyone I meet about Dr. Stengler and my amazing results. I truly believe that this is the right way to deal with all health issues. He understands the benefits of natural healing as well as traditional medical practice.

Wendy Pickett - Vista, CA

After following Dr. Stengler’s advice and treatment for my ailments for three months, I have to say, “I feel so much better!” I have suffered with terrible joint pain, fibromyalgia, fatigue, bad digestion and IBS since 1993. Bad digestion was something I had suffered with for as long as I can remember as a child.

Now, after taking DIGEST ALL, one of the supplements, I can say I am a different person. I call it my “Miracle Drug”. My energy level and stamina have improved dramatically also. Today I am able to function much better overall. Dr. Stengler is extremely knowledgable. Thank you so much for making me experience wellness in my life.

Teresa O. Campbell - Bonita, CA

“30 years ago when I was a few years out of college I had a chronic vomiting attack for 14 days. It took 2 months to get my weight back, but then it happened again and for the next 10 years every 3 months. I would have a chronic vomiting attack. During this time I kept going to doctors and getting tests searching for a diagnosis. Finally I was diagnosed with pancreatitis, which is a hard one to diagnose. I was put on a diet and started to get well. 10 more years and I stopped vomiting but still was in poor health with terrible pancreatic attacks.

Last year I took turn for the worse. Weight loss and I started to give up because it was so bad for so long. Regular doctors weren’t helping so I searched for a holistic doctor with pancreas experience. Found Dr Stengler 6 months ago. He gave me a blood test for food sensitivity and a resulting diet. In 2 months I was noticeably better. Now have my weight back and have broken the cycle of pancreatic attacks and fell healthy for the first time in 30 years. What fantastic turn around. Thank you Dr Stengler.”

“I have had a hiatal hernia since I was 22 years old, and I am 60 now. I had years of acid reflux so severe I would wake up gasping for air. After eating I would have to rest, as walking around I would have severe pain in my upper stomach. Dr Stengler did the hiatal hernia maneuver on me and I have felt great ever since. If you have a hiatal hernia stop suffering and see Dr Stengler. I feel so good now.”

EAR, NOSE AND THROAT

My daughter, Zaina started having recurrent ear infections at age 3, and was repeatedly treated with antibiotics and antihistamines, but the fluid behind her ears never cleared up except for a few weeks. She was continually stuffed-up also and very irritable due to the medications. After nearly a year of going back and forth to the ENT specialists, I was told she must have surgery…. tubes and removal of her tonsils and adenoids. I did some research and was not convinced, although three ENT doctors all told me the same thing and kept giving antibiotics to no avail.

I finally had her blood tested for allergies, and by surprise found she is not allergy-prone at all. Zaina kept getting infections and fevers, then she had pneumonia. After six days of antibiotic injections, her chest cleared up but the fluid behind the ears did not. Obviously, this wasn’t working! Just a few weeks after that, she developed a high fever that lasted nine days. Again, her pediatrician treated her with antibiotics, but the fever continued to remain high and I was very afraid for my daughter. Only the mother of a sick child could understand the worry and endless anxiety, the constant trips to doctors and the frustration of not recovering from an illness. I was not ready to face the risk of surgery for my baby; there is always a risk of death, even though the surgeons try to minimalize it. And I resisted putting tubes in because my research indicated it would not cure the underlying problem. It would help release some of the fluid, but the child would still get infections.

In the meantime, I had tried a few natural remedies but nothing was helping. I needed professional guidance. I thank God for the day I found Dr. Stengler’s website and book! Even though we live outside the United States, we arranged for a consultation over the telephone and I followed his instructions to the letter. Four weeks later, Zaina’s ENT specialist was amazed…. her ears were completely clear! He kept checking his records, thinking he’d made a mistake, because just four weeks earlier she needed surgery… a surgery which I’d been delaying for a good four months. What was really great was that Dr. Stengler also prescribed special herbs to help rebuild Zaina’s immune system, which had been very weakened by all the antibiotics. After that, she had a few infections in the throat, but they started to come less often and her health was really improved! It was an entire year before she got another ear infection, and we knew just what to do.

I usually consulted with Dr. Stengler before going ahead with any treatments, especially when her regular doctor would prescribe antibiotics. I did not want to risk doing the wrong thing or giving an incorrect dosage or herb. She is so healthy and happy now… I’m so grateful and thrilled to have a well child again! I tell everyone I know and always recommend Dr. Stengler and his books.

Cindy Abdalla Dubai, United Arab Emirates

In October 2008, our son Michael, whom was then 4 years old, had woken up very swollen under his eyes. I immediately took him to the doctor, and they diagnosed him with a sinus infection. They prescribed some antibiotics, and after his first dose, he immediately started swelling with hives on his body, face, and lips. Scared of trying yet another antibiotic, we took him to Dr. Stengler. He sent us home with a nebulizer for natural breathing treatments twice a day. Our son’s swelling was gone within 2 days of the treatments. We were so relieved that he was better, and also that we didn’t have to try another antibiotic, which was not necessary.

ECZEMA

Dr. Stengler has changed my daughter’s life. She has little to no signs of eczema anymore. We had tried several skin specialists, dermatologists and MDs who could never completely help her extreme breakouts. Dr. Stengler has helped my daughter like no other doctor before.

Kelly Bourgeois - San Diego, CA

My daughter Andrea was 9 or 12 months old when I discovered she had eczema and many food allergies. As time was passing by her eczema was getting worse and we tried so many prescription lotions like hydrocortisone and over the counter medications too. Knowing the side effects like becoming sterile, but as desperate parents we needed to help her feel relief. We took her to many general doctors and to the specialist in San Fernando Valley and to the best specialist at UCLA. All we got was a prescription lotion (hydrocortisone).

As Andrea was getting older her eczema was getting worse and worse. One day my husband bought a book called Prescription for Natural Cures at Whole Foods Market and he discovered Dr. Mark Stengler in the city of San Diego.

Dr. Stengler started treating Andrea since May 4, 2010. She was 10 years old. When she came to Dr. Stengler for the first time her skin was in really bad condition with blisters all over her body and full of pus and infection. Andrea was always scratching 24 hours a day. She was always itching from her face to the tip of her toes and she would scratch until she would bleed. So I would make her wear socks on her hands at night time or sometimes she would ask me to tie her hands together to help her to sleep at night. It was a horrible experience.

Now Andrea is not embarrassed to show her skin anymore because it is clear and beautiful. Finally don’t have to deal with her eczema anymore, only her teenager attitude.

FATIGUE, HEADACHES AND INSOMNIA

Dr. Stengler prescribed CoQ10. It improved my energy and reduced my heart palpitations. An excellent result from an unexpected source.

Peter Will - San Diego, CA

I came to Dr. Stengler when I began feeling so rundown and battling a lack of energy that was affecting my quality of life. I was tired as soon as I got out of bed and it was a struggle to get through the day. Since seeing the doctor I have felt like a totally different person. I feel great when I wake up and get through the entire day feeling like I have energy to spare. My mental outlook is so improved that others comment on the difference. My husband especially is really pleased with the change he has seen in my energy and happiness.

Jo Ann Lopez

My health began to steadily decline after a motor vehicle accident, coupled with the stress of an extremely busy interior design practice. Soon, my health spiraled out of control and I became so ill I could no longer work! By the time I saw Dr. Stengler, I had been seeking treatment for 22 months from other health practicitioners and had little to no improvement. My life consisted of going from the bed to the sofa and the sofa to the bed! My symptoms included severe fatigue, muscle, joint and nerve pain as well as difficulty sleeping and of course, depression. Basically, I had NO LIFE!! After starting Dr. Stengler’s adrenal nutrients, I began to see improvement in a few weeks with increased energy, improved stamina and soon, relief from the pain! I am eternally grateful!!

Cindy Schalkle - Cave Creek, AZ

Prior to my visit to Dr Stengler, I was often tired during and after my workouts and had low energy much of the time. Dr Stengler started me on sublingual B12 and within three days my energy levels improved dramatically. Now I no longer feel the need to nap in the afternoon and can maintain my
energy throughout the day.

Lou Appell

I went to see Dr. Stengler because I was constantly tired and struggling to get through each day. I could barely get myself out of bed each morning. I was tired all day and exhausted by the time I was able to get to bed at night. I knew I had ben running myself pretty hard, due to life circumstances. However, it got worse when I contracted walking pneumonia. The pneumonia was treated with antibiotics, and although the pneumonia was gone, I just couldn’t get back on my feet. I had done everything I could think to do. I was eating healthy and exercising daily, but nothing seemed to be working. In fact, the more I did, the worse I felt. I told Dr. Stengler I wanted my “bounce” back. I didn’t want to keep dragging through life, but I just couldn’t seem to get my energy back.

I am extremely thankful, because after following his prescriptions, I am doing so much better. My lung capacity has returned and I can run and do my exercising and feel invigorated not exhausted. I am waking up refreshed and managing to make it through my days with some energy left over for my family in the evenings. I’ve lost weight, toned up and I have life again.

Kathleen Yanelli

Almost one year after giving birth to my first child, my energy level had never recovered. Family members said it was because of my age (in my mid-30′s). Friends said it was “normal”…they all felt this way. But I also suffered from absence of libido, excessive irritability, disappearing social interest, and overwhelming sense of burnout. I refused to accept it being “normal” for me and sought help from Dr. Stengler. After a very brief meeting, I was sent home with a daily homeopathic treatment and a suggestive supplement. Ten days later, I started to notice a difference. I wake up now feeling ready to face the day’s challenges. I am calm enough to organize my plans and thoughts. I just put on a party to celebrate my son’s first birthday. I am making changes to improve my profession. Most importantly, I want to have physical intimacy with my husband, and I am confident about it. I’m very grateful for having had such a wonderful result from a Christian doctor who uses his God-given talents so well!

Rose - Scripps Ranch, CA

For several years, I suffered from at least 20 different symptoms that were creating depression, pain, dizziness, heart palpitations, and horrible fatigue. I have a very high profile job and life and found it harder and harder to keep up. I spent a lot of time at the doctor’s office and the emergency room, all to no avail. I was desperate and always checking the internet to see if I could find what the doctor’s could not. After meeting with Dr. Stengler, he gave me encouragement and hope that he would be able to help get the old me back. After running some tests on me, he was able to pinpoint some problems and slowly but surely got me back on track. Within a few months, I was back to my old self and working long full days again. I’m able to give my all as a wife, mother and friend again. I no longer have the pain, depression or fatigue that plagued me for years. Thank you for giving me back my life……

Angie West - San Diego, CA

When I first came to Dr. Stengler I was experiencing low energy, night sweats, hot flashes during the day, and brain fogginess. After he supplied me with two homeopathic formulas, I immediately stopped having the night sweats and hot flashes. I was able to sleep through the night, and now I am much more energetic and focused. I’m so glad he was able to pinpoint what was wrong, and I highly recommend him as a knowledgeable, caring doctor.

Janis Klippel - San Diego, CA

“I came to Dr. Stengler complaining of hair loss, had very little energy and was not able to sleep through the night (waking up several times each night).  I was also under alot of stress.  After being on the adrenal formula (1 in AM and 2 in PM) I started sleeping through the night.  My hair stopped falling out.  I was less stressed and I had tons of energy.  I have not experienced any side effects from taking this formula.  I have taken this formula for several months and continue to have good results.”

A husband and wife have both found relief from Adrenal Wellness
Since taking Dr. Stengler’s Adrenal Wellness supplement, my energy has been dramatically restored throughout the day. I used to feel cold all the time, and that has greatly improved or almost gone away. I have better mental clarity, overall better health and even a small amount of my gray hair is turning brown.

Len Berg

I was exhausted all the time and was getting a little desperate. Within two weeks of taking Adrenal Wellness, I had more energy that I’d had in a very long time. I was able to go on a 12-day East Coast school trip as a parent chaparone (all day non-stop) and I had more energy than any of the other parents. I also suffered from brain fog and fought through it daily. It’s gone. I have ankylosing spondylitis and was in chronic pain for 2 years and have been taking 2 prescription drugs for it. I am now down to only one drug, only taking one dose a day and I believe it’s from the adrenal supplements. I feel healthier overall (with the exception of anemia). I have much more energy now.

For both of us, it’s the one supplement we take that noticeably makes a difference in our quality of life. Thanks, Dr. Stengler!

Laura Berg

“Before I started seeing Dr Stengler I felt my energy was very low and I hardly wanted to get out of bed. In a scale of 1 to 10 I think I felt around 3. Now six months after his adrena formula and balancing program I feel my energy at 7 or 8. I now wake up and go to yoga classes, take long walks, work, volunteer, and cook. My mood has been also imrproving since I used to have crying crisis, negative thoughts and a feeling of depression throughout the day. I still feel down some days but not as before, and I can be able to recognize my state and keep it under control. Before the treatment I felt overwhelmed. My stress has also improved bit it has been the most difficult part since I still feel a lot of tension in my back, neck, shoulder and head. Overall I feel good……Overall I truly want to thank Dr Stengler because his treatment has made me feel back in health, alive, and in control.”

FOOD INTOLERANCE

I found Dr. Stengler 6 months ago. He gave me a blood test for food sensitivity and a resulting diet. In 2 months I was noticeably better. Now I have my weight back and have broken the cycle of pancreatic attacks, and feel healthy for the first time in 30 years. What a fantastic turnaround. Thank you, Dr. Stengler!

Rick O'Keefe - San Diego, CA

When I first came to visit this clinic, it was with some trepidation. For me, doctoring was always done by someone with a stethoscope around their neck. At some point I realized I needed more than just my family physician so I started looking for something more. That is what led me to Dr. Mark Stengler. Dr. Mark was able to help me get my food intolerance problems under control. Together, we “got a grip” on the offending items in my diet and removed them. While I was seeing Dr. Mark, I also saw Dr. Labeau for my TMJ problems. I had very good success with Dr. Labeaus’ treatments. Today I am much healthier and I attribute much of this to the help I received at Encinitas Whole Health. My experience with this group was very positive. I consider this group to be part of my team of doctors. Encinitas Whole Health has changed my views about medicine.

Diane Murphy - Carlsbad, CA

“Gluten intolerance” compromised my overall well- being in ways I never imagined. Since I’m off gluten, I no longer have to take an hour nap just to function every day. I’m not catching every virus I walk past. I have a much improved immune system. My hair doesn’t fall out in handfuls and my nails are stronger. Four years ago, my very healthy gums started to recede. They’re now becoming health and far less tender. Strangely enough, a year and a half of hot flashes ceased three days after I stopped eating gluten. Coincidence? Most dramatically, my lower back pain of 20 years has been reduced by 75% after spending thousands on false hope. Now I don’t even think about my back most days…and I garden almost daily.

In addition, my sciatica was so painful on drives more than an hour that I had to sit on a small ice block…90% better. Amazing. The only time the pain flares is when I eat gluten! How could something ‘healthy’ that we consume daily, wreak so much havoc on the human body? For those of us who are gluten intolerant or suffer from celiac disease, this knowledge is life-changing. Dr. Peter Green, the renowned gluten specialist, estimates more than 50% of the U.S. population is gluten sensitive and don’t even know it. Each person’s symptoms can be different. Who would have guessed the above symptoms were due to gluten? My deep appreciation goes to Dr. Stengler for guiding me down this path and for his continual dedication to whole health…a true health pioneer!

GENERAL HEALTH

“Dr. Mark Stengler is a lifesaver for our family!” We have been using Dr. Mark for many years, since 2002 when my first child was only a couple months old. We have been blessed to have him assist us with my family’s health and nutrition for everything from the simple cold and flu to improving our overall nutrition, allergies, and pre- and post-operations.

We always consult him prior to going for our physicals, as he knows what blood tests to request. It never seems to amaze me that when I ask for these certain tests, the MDs will say, “Oh, that is not needed”. Yet, when I insist and then get the results back and forward to Dr. Mark for a clear reading and explanation, he is able to improve on our health and nutrition. For example, I was low in vitamin D, my husband in B12. Our MDs always suggest pharmaceutical drugs, which have side effects. We always decline them and do what Dr. Mark suggests and improvements happen immediately! When the MD calls back to see how we are, she is speechless when I say we did what Dr Stengler suggested and are better already!

Dr. Mark is very professional, prompt at getting back with you and very compassionate. I highly recommend him without any reservation for the newborn to the old and wise.

Kathleen Clarke, mother of Natasha age 6 and Jacob age 3 Austin, Texas

I am forever grateful to Dr Stengler for his thorough blood work which discovered a high level of calcium in my blood. He suspected hyperparathyroidism which was taking calcium from my bones. Dr Stengler referred me to an endocrinologist; surgery was done and my calcium is now in normal range. I am now working on rebuilding bone density!

Dear Dr. Stengler,
Enclosed please find my most recent blood work results. As you can see, my fasting blood glucose is down to 78 from 97 last year and my cholesterol and triglycerides are down. I feel good and have more energy than I did a year ago. I rarely feel the need to nap during the afternoons, as was my daily routine, and I exercise almost every day. I eat more protein and fiber and less sugar than I did a year ago. I continue to take the supplements you prescribed. They are obviously working well for me. Thank you so much for helping me regain my health.

Nancy Driscoll

Mark Stengler is very compassionate and patient about sticking with you while trying to get to the bottom of things. You never feel he’s going to give up, and in the process, you’re constantly healing. When I first came to Dr. Stengler a few years ago, I thought I was dying. I was hysterical and crying, and he saved my life. He discovered issues about my thyroid that the endocrinologist never picked up on. I feel he continually heals me. I recently had gum surgery which resulted in an abscessed gum. My periodontist insisted on giving me antibiotics, which I’m chemically allergic to, and the dentist didn’t understand the problem. Dr. Stengler graciously spoke with this dentist, prepared a homeopathic for me, and three days later, I was fine. The man constantly amazes me.

DeDee Lane - La Jolla, CA

Mark Stengler is the nation’s leading natural doctor. He is the “one” other practitioners turn to for insight on difficult cases. His books should be on the shelf of every doctor and person serious about healing with natural therapies.

Dr. Steve Nenninger Manhattan, New York

Dr. Stengler taught me how to listen to my body and heal holistically. His suggestions and recommendations have improved the quality of my life. He’s shown me how to choose foods wisely and use herbs to enhance my body’s natural functions. I am grateful to have crossed paths with Dr. Stengler and encourage anyone who wants to improve his or her health to take advantage of his knowledge and expertise.

Leila Jersusalem

I honestly don’t know what I would have done without Dr. Stengler. After months of seeing conventional MD’s with no positive results, I saw Dr. Stengler and he immediately addressed both my pressing physical discomforts as well as began building a comprehensive plan to correct my serious ailment. He listens carefully, explains fully, and works closely with me to monitor my health, progress, and feelings. He now treats three of my family members as well, deftly honing in on problems the standard MD’s have totally overlooked. Our significantly improved health is the best testimonial to his value. I recommend him wholeheartedly to anyone needing to improve their health…but especially to those folks feeling desperate and/or frustrated with traditional American medicine. This man can probably help you!

Lisa VanHerik - La Jolla, CA

Dr. Mark Stengler’s advice and treatment have made a truly positive, great improvement in my health. I feel better than I have in years and have, at 40 years of age, just as much energy as when I was 20. Thanks, Dr. Mark!

Vincent Butler - Los Angeles, CA

I am 96 years old, a retired teacher and thankfully free of complaints (other than just being old). When doctors ask me what medications I am on, I answer “none”. They assume I am deaf or senile and yell, “pills… prescriptions”? And when I still say none, they look to my daughter for confirmation. It is true. I am a testament to good nutrition, listening to your body and helping it heal itself. I love Dr. Stengler’s two books, “The Natural Physician’s Healing Therapies” and “Prescriptions for Natural Cures” and so appreciated my recent phone consultation with him. Now, constipation is gone, thanks to his flax seed and magnesium recommendations. And no rheumatism, thanks to shea butter rubbed on my knuckles. My daughter has gone through his books and figured out vitamin, mineral and digestive enzyme supplements for me. Hopefully, I have a few good years left so I can keep doing Jumbo puzzles in the newspaper, enjoy an ice cream soda once in awhile and drive around with my daughter.

Before I started on the treatment (with Dr. Stengler) I felt miserable. I had hair loss, very dry skin, loss of balance, and I had no energy. Now I feel great. This treatment has helped me extremely! No more hair loss! No more dry skin, and my energy level is at its highest! I’m very happy.

Isaura Lopez Olivarez (65 year old female) - Imperial Beach, CA

My hair had fallen out consistently for over 2 years. I had been battling thyroid issues and hormonal imbalances. I had tried everything one can try nutritionally and supplemental to combat this hair loss. It wasn’t until Dr Stengler recommended his special formulation product “Collagen for Hair, Skin and Nails” that my hair loss diminished and eventually stopped. That process took about a month to notice initially. This product even helped hair to grow back! I had noticeably a thinning hair line. Now my hair is thick and healthy once again. I am so grateful for this product.

HEADACHES, MIGRAINES, FATIGUE AND INSOMNIA

I had severe fatigue, headaches, insomnia, aches and pains for 4 years until I met Dr. Stengler. His nutritional and hormone balancing program have revived me. I have good energy, stamina, better outlook on life, and even better relationships as a result of his care. At 77 years of age I am enjoying my ‘golden years” with vitality.

Elvia Sanchez-Teruel - La Jolla, CA

For years I suffered from excruciating migraine headaches. After Dr. Stengler’s natural treatment, I ceased having this problem. Many thanks to The Natural Physician.

Susan Hawkins Brooks - Alberta, Canada

Thanks to Dr. Stengler’s incredible job with my son’s health issues, I knew where to turn when I decided to get treatment for my ongoing headaches. I have battled with headaches repeatedly since I was 10 years old. I finally sought help in the summer of 2004 when they escalated to just about everyday, ranging from mild to frequent migraines. With Dr. Stengler’s recommendations and supplements, I have significantly reduced the occurrences of my headaches. This has been a miracle! In the past, I had seen many other doctors in an attempt to try and figure out a solution, and the treatment was always the same. They would recommend daily medications with numerous potential side effects. Thank goodness we found Dr. Stengler, because he has helped my son and I with each of our health problems by simply giving advice on diet and supplements. I can honestly say our quality of life has greatly improved since our first appointments with him!

HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE

I had a kidney transplant six years ago and have to take immuno-supressant meds daily, which apparently I was told- would give me hypertension sooner or later. On 8/18/2010 I saw Dr Stengler because my blood pressure varied from 135-140/162-170. The supplements Dr Stengler gave me are BP Wellness, Nattokinase Plus, and Vasotensin. I commend Dr Stengler for his knowledge, because today, 9/16/2010 my blood pressure reads 110/60. Bless you, Dr Stengler.

Monika R. - San Diego, CA

I’m very grateful to Dr. Stengler for all the help he provided me in getting my blood pressure under control. I was taking medicine to control my blood pressure, but suffering side effects. The doctor was taking blood samples to see if my kidneys were being affected and I was afraid of getting sick of something else, so I decided to seek alternative ways to treat my problem. Thank you, Dr. Stengler for your wonderful help!

Lionel Adame - Hespena, CA

Two months ago I was going to need a hip replacement. I had such pain, I was sleeping with an ice pack every night. Dr. Stengler suggested I try some supplements. After one month my hip was still hurting, I tried one more round, after the sixth week it was amazing, the pain stopped. It’s been two months now and I am pain free. It works!

HIP PAIN

HORMONE BALANCE

The use of bio-identical hormones, estrogen and progesterone, as prescribed by Dr. Stengler, improved my life immediately. On the very first day of use, I felt like a light had been turned on in my brain. Having previously used only synthetic hormones for years in both birth control pills and in HRT (1 1/2 years), I felt increasingly dull and slow. Bio-identical HRT not only released me from a chemically-induced stupidity, they also provided definitively greater moisture both vaginally and in the eipdermis. The improvement to my life is incalculable!

Patricia Hanley - Los Angeles, CA

Dr. Mark is the best resource in San Diego for getting your hormones balanced. Using the most progressive and reliable methods, he will work with you to find out what your hormone balance (or imbalance) is and balance it…naturally!

Danna Demetre, RN San Diego, CA

I am so thankful for Dr. Stengler’s life’s works! I made an appointment to see him about my hot flashes, which at age 64 and after 10 years were not diminishing. After first two weeks of taking the recommended cream, the hot flashes disappeared by 95%-98%. In addition, Dr Stengler helped with my arthritic hands, weight management, and diet. I’m on the road to being a new woman! I feel so whole again. Thank you, thank you, Dr. Stengler. God bless you always!

Sally Ramirez - Chula Vista, CA

Before I started seeing Dr. Stengler, my energy was very low and I hardly wanted to get out of bed. On a scale of 1 to 10, I felt around 3. Now, six months after his adrenal formula and balancing program my energy has increased to a 7 or 8. I now wake up and go to yoga classes, take long walks, work, volunteer, and cook. My mood has also been improving since I used to have crying crisis, negative thoughts and a feeling of depression throughout the day. I still feel down some days but not as before, and I am able to recognize my state and keep it under control. Before the treatment I felt overwhelmed.

My stress has also improved but it has been the most difficult part since I still feel a lot of tension in my neck, shoulders and head. Overall, I feel good; I just have some periods of crisis in which my body hurts, I have headaches, and I feel down. But before the treatment those symptoms were a daily reality. As for my acne rosácea, my skin is looking much better, less red and irritated, and much more even in tone. My sleep has also improved from 2 to 3 hours per night to 6 to 8 hours per night. Even if I wake up in the middle of the night, I’m able to go back to sleep. Overall, I truly want to thank Dr. Stengler because his treatment has made me feel back in health, alive and in control.

Hair Loss, Thyroid, Hormonal Balance

HORMONE BALANCE - MEN'S HEALTH

Dr. Stengler’s treatments have been very successful. Testosterone replacement (with the bioidentical form) has helped restore physical energy and improve mental alertness. The testosterone along with thyroid extracts (from natural origins) seems to have provided the basis for other more specific energy and memory supplements to be more effective. These supplements range from those with an athletic emphasis to those with life-enhancing benefits from the most advanced medical-nutritional researchers. However. deep sleep. regular physical activity. good nutrition. fresh air outdoors. and relaxation are also part of this synergistic and “holistic” approach.

Furthermore. other doctors will often follow up with other tests that are more readily covered by insurance and these tests have confirmed his approach. Whereas Dr. Stengler readily shares with patients full testing results, most conventional doctors are not so willing. I have had many physicians during much relocation, but he is the only one I have maintained continual contact with over the years. I was much younger when I first met Dr. Stengler in a health food store—I’m now 70.

HORMONE BALANCE POST-SURGICAL RECOVERY

Dr Stengler, thank you for the natural program you prescribed for surgery recovery. It really reduced my swelling and bruising. In fact, my surgeon was shocked at how quickly I healed. I am also grateful that you tested my hormone levels and started getting those balanced before the surgery. I’m feeling very frisky these days and the PMS is MUCH better. The world is now a slightly safer place!

Denise Jackson - San Diego, CA

IMPETIGO

I had Impetigo off and on for about four months. I went through three doctors and four antibiotics before coming to Mark Stengler. He prescribed me a few homeopathic remedies, and my skin cleared up in no time. There has been no sign of Impetigo for a month now. I’m thrilled!

INFERTILITY

My husband and I tried to conceive a child for three years. We are health conscious people who eat well, exercise and take supplements. We both completed a battery of questioning and testing and were ultimately diagnosed with “non-specific infertility”. We consulted some of the top infertility specialists in the nation concerning our situation and were advised that our only option to conceive would be through IUI or IVF, which included a substantial drug regimen. We were told anything less would be a waste of their time and our money. Due to concerns regarding the potential side effects of the drug programs, we decided to explore other options.

After reading an article by Dr. Stengler regarding infertility, we decided to consult with him regarding our situation. After completing a few in-home tests, he determined that my thyroid was functioning on the low side of the normal range and that my hormones were slightly out of balance. Although I have had regular physicals every year, none of my doctors had recommended I take a thyroid supplement since I was within the normal range. Dr. Stengler, however, believed regulating my hormones and boosting my thyroid activity in the middle of the normal range might have a favorable impact on our ability to conceive. He recommended I take Vitex, an herbal supplement to assist with hormone regulation, and Nature Throid, a natural thyroid supplement.

Dr. Stengler was right on target. After only two months on his new program, we are expecting our first child—a healthy baby girl! It is amazing that such small adjustments could make such a significant difference in such a short period of time. Dr. Stengler is an amazing doctor and a great listener. He is the only doctor we consulted who was genuinely interested in finding out what was causing our problem, rather than just treating the symptoms. I know we will enjoy both short and long term health benefits from his wise counsel and continued treatment.

INSOMNIA, FATIGUE, HEADACHES

At 81 years of age I suddenly got high blood pressure. Dr. Stengler solved it naturally with two different supplements that brought my blood pressure
down in two weeks. They were HTN complex and Vasotensin. I was reluctant to go the medical route and be prescribed a blood pressure medication. I have
had neuropathy in my legs and arms for 5 years. The severe pains in my legs and arms prevented me from sleeping well. Dr. Stengler suggested the natural
treatment acetyl-l-carnitine. Since taking it daily I’ve had great relief from pain and can now sleep through the night. At 81 years of age I am almost pain free, renewed energy, improved memory and a joie de vivre (joy of living). Thank you Dr. Stengler for your amazing intellect, caring and love for your patients.

Sincerely, Marjorie Shick-Lithgow - Saint George, Utah

JOINT PAIN; ARTHRITIS

I am 59 years old with severe arthritis in both knees, both elbows, my right hip, and both hands. My joints burn with pain and I require pain medication to be able to sleep. The tendons in my lower legs and feet would tighten up causing additional discomfort. I have been in pain for seven years. An x-ray showed cartilage loss in my knees.

I received treatment from Dr Stengler and within three weeks his program of diet, homeopathies, and natural anti-inflammatories (Collagen Boost) allowed me to be off all pain medications. My joint pain is over 70% improved and my tendons no longer tighten up. Pretty amazing for 3 weeks of treatment! I have now insisted my husband become a patient of Dr Stengler’s.

Lasers That Relieve Pain

Read Dr. Stengler’s article on the use of cold laser therapy for treatment of pain: “Cold laser therapy, so called because it is unlike older types of lasers that use very hot, high-energy beams of light, also is known as low-level laser treatment (LLLT). I use LLLT in my clinic to relieve many types of musculoskeletal pain, including arthritis and strained or inflamed muscles, joints, tendons and ligaments. Because LLLT reduces inflammation and improves circulation, I also use it to treat conditions such as sinusitis…lymphedema (swelling due to a buildup of lymph fluid in an arm or a leg, which is particularly common after a mastectomy)…and tinnitus (a condition characterized by ringing in the ears). LLLT also has been shown to speed up wound healing and improve the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome. If you have any of these conditions, I urge you to look into LLLT.”
How it works

MENOPAUSE

I recommend without reservation Dr. Stengler and his caring, cheerful staff. After two visits and one blood test, Dr. Stengler prescribed two homeopathic treatments as well as natural supplements. I am symptom-free! No more hot flashes; I sleep through the night and have increased energy. My one regret is that I did not seek his help years ago!

Margaret Hardy - San Diego, CA

I feel wonderful…no kidding! I am so thrilled because I was feeling so bad in this new season of menopause, I thought I was going crazy. The added benefit is all the products are natural, no drugs. Thank you, Dr. Stengler!

Annette Hallahan - San Diego, CA

Sometimes I felt like a stranger was inhabiting my body as I traveled the long, hot road of peri-menopause into menopause. Thankfully, Dr. Stengler helped me navigate the journey more effectively and healthfully using natural supplements and a season of bio-identical hormone replacement. Today, I am almost symptom-free and using only herbal products. He also has helped me keep my thyroid levels healthy. And, his awesome Slimaluma product helped me lose my “menopause middle”. I’m back to my pre-menopause size six jeans! Thanks, Dr. Stengler!

Danna Demetre - El Cajon, CA

Take the guesswork out of menopause! With just two visits to Dr. Stengler and a simple saliva test, I had the answers to many of my questions regarding menopause and the problems I was experiencing. It is actually a pleasant experience going to see the doctor, professional and friendly staff, no awful smells and I left feeling better! If you are wondering about hormone levels or experiencing any ill side effects caused from menopause, I would highly recommend Dr. Stengler.

Patsy Jenkins - San Diego, CA

I was suffering from hot flashes, night sweats, and loss of sleep. My regular OB-GYN doctor said these were normal perimenopausal symptoms. Dr. Stengler suggested a six panel hormone test. After the results, he prescribed several natural remedies which significantly improved my symptoms. I am grateful for his help and recommend his services.

N Maddox

As a compounding pharmacist for over 25 years, I have had the opportunity to work with some of the most innovative physicians. Dr. Stengler is an extremely knowledgeable and caring physician. He is on the cutting edge of bio-identical hormone replacement therapy. If you are looking for an outstanding naturopathic physician, I highly recommend him.

MENSTRUAL DIFFICULTIES

Thanks to Dr. Stengler, I didn’t have to undergo what seemed to be a horrible procedure—hydrothermal abalation—the burning of the uterine lining with hot water. I started having heavy periods with clots about four years ago. Since then, they have gotten worse to the point I could not go to work or even leave the house. Dr. Stengler had my hormones tested and discovered my hormone imbalance. After just four months on progesterone, my periods are back to normal. I’ve done much research on heavy period and many people are having hysterectomies to resolve it. Someone needs to help women from undergoing unnecessary procedures. It was such a simple fix! Thanks, Dr. Stengler!

MIGRAINE DIFFICULTIES

I’ve been a chronic pain patient since 1995 and became permanently disabled due to further chronic pain caused by cervical and thoracic laminectomies (back surgery to remove a staph infection pressing on my spinal cord) in 1999. The chronic pain, with accompanying migraines, was 24/7 and muscular-skeletal. Synthetic opiates and chiropractic care became my only treatment after having tried every drug, physical therapy, acupuncture and pain management shots.

I then saw Dr. Stengler on “Know the Cause” TV program and my life has never been the same since. He introduced me to cold laser treatments for the pain and stiffness in my head, neck, shoulders and back. After just one treatment, I felt total relief! It was miraculous for me, for I have lived with this for so long and thought I would have the stiffness in my head and neck forever. My range of motion was no longer limited–I could turn my head to look over my shoulder and the migraines subsided dramatically. It’s been about 9-10 months now and the results have been permanent! Thank you, God, and Dr. Stengler – you’ve been an answer to my prayers!

MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS (MS)

As a patient with MS (multiple sclerosis), I came to see Dr. Stengler. After a thorough evaluation I was put on a diet and intravenous regimen. My remaining symptoms went away. I highly recommend Dr. Stengler and his loving staff for your natural medical care.

Devin Hubbard - San Diego California

OSTEOPOROSIS

I was referred to Dr. Stengler after making the rounds for two years with four different traditional doctors (two from Beverly Hills). They were apparently “practicing”; I just didn’t want it to be on me. I was diagnosed with osteoporosis in 1999. Thanks to Dr. Stengler, I have been rebuilding bone density on a consistent basis without any medication. In fact, I have had a 6% increase in hip bone density in just one year! He has gotten my hormones under control and put me on a specific vitamin supplement program coupled with weight bearing exercises, yoga and healthy foods. I can even do a leg press of over 300 pounds! At 63 years young, that’s pretty good. Dr. Stengler has given me the tools to heal and look forward to a long, healthy life. Thank you, Dr. Stengler, for your professional guidance, encouragement and willingness to “think outside of the box.”

Penny Smith – Granada Hills, CA

“I was happy with my bone density test results. My density at my spine actually increased over 3 percent which I am told is very food for a woman of my age. My Internist wanted to put me on a prescription drug several years ago but I refused. Instead I sought help from Dr Stengler.  The program he put me on I feel resulted in my overall improvement in my health.”

Osteoporosis

PAIN

I had severe post-herpetic neuralgia (nerve pain in my head, back and other body parts). I was in pain all day and sometimes all night. I would often wake up crying in pain. The pain medicine from medical doctors made the burning pain worse. I was on a waiting list for weeks to see Dr. Stengler, so in the meanwhile I saw another holistic doctor, but got no help. The first day of treatment from Dr. Stengler with an intravenous nutrient treatment and homeopathic remedy gave me obvious pain relief. Within three short days my pain was 85% improved! Previously I thought I was going to die. Now I feel very good, thanks to Dr. Stengler.

PMS

One year ago, I was suffering severely during my monthly menstrual cycles. I was very nauseated and in severe disabling pain. I literally could not do anything for the first two days of my menstrual cycle. My doctor diagnosed me with several large fibroids. His treatment was to take birth control pills to “buy me some time” and later to have a hysterectomy. I sought Dr. Mark Stengler for my health problems and he prescribed natural health solutions. After just one month of treatment, my life had totally changed. My menstrual cycles continue to be completely pain-free and my overall health has improved dramatically. My family has a healthy wife and mother back and I have my health back. Thank you, Dr. Stengler!!!

PROSTATE CANCER DIAGNOSIS

When I was diagnosed with prostate cancer, my oncologist told me I had less than three years to live. It has been almost seven years since that death sentence and I’m still going strong. Thanks, Dr. Mark, for my health, my future, and my grandchildren’s futures.

Edward Mydynski - Saskatchewan, Canada

RESPIRATORY

I have been treated by Dr. Stengler for less than a year, and his treatment has made my health care treatment less complicated and more effective than 11 years of the attempts of typical Western Medicine approaches. I am not against Western Medicine, I am grateful that I was educated through the years about Bronchiechtesis and it’s effect on my ability to fight bacteria in my lungs because of it. I had many hospitalizations and tests that confirmed my condition and the consequences of having this condition that were very valuable. The final solution reached by one of the top Lung Hospitals in the nation was that I needed to be constantly vigilant about CAT Scans, Sputum cultures, manually expelling mucous and staying on alternating courses of antibiotics for the rest of my life. I was not happy with this verdict and always hoped something new would come along.
I had always enjoyed Dr. Stengler’s articles in Bottom Line Health, but didn’t realize he was located about 1 1/2 hours away from my home. I had hoped that his “natural approach” could help me reduce my hospitalizations, which were 1- 2 times a year and growing.

I am happy to report that I am more than thrilled with his approach. In the last year, I have had so much success that I have not been hospitalized; have not been sick (despite being around children and a spouse that have come down with many ailments); have not had a positive sputum culture in about 6 months; and best of all, have not used antibiotics in about 2 1/2 months! I am always most amazed by his positive attitude and his ability to treat every client as if they are his only client, as well as his staff’s professional and positive ways. I have spoken with many of his clients during times when I have treatments at his office, and no one has ever said that their condition hasn’t changed their lives drastically. Other improvements have been improved sleep, improved energy and improved weight management. I look forward to feeling younger and younger the longer I am treated by him.

Forever Grateful,

Jackie Gordon - Canyon Lake, CA

SEVERE STUTTERING (Child)

My daughter, Sabelle started stuttering severely at age 3. We were working with her daily and she was also seeing a speech therapist weekly with minimum results. I took her to see Dr. Stengler who gave her a homeopathic formula to be taken daily. Within FIVE DAYS, she was speaking perfectly! This was after about one year of very severe dysfluency. She reverted back to stuttering a little bit within the next few weeks, but never as severely as she had once spoken. She stopped seeing the therapist a few months later and continued to speak with more and more fluency. Now, at age 5, she speaks with perfect fluency! She still takes the homeopathic and we are ecstatic about the results.

SHINGLES AND SKIN ISSUES

I had Candida Albicans overgrowth in my body. I had a list of symptoms that started 10 years prior. I went to many medical doctors throughout the ten years and they did not know how to treat my symptoms. Finally 1 1/2yrs ago, my hands broke out with severe eczema all over them. I could not sleep at night because the eczema would burn & itch so badly that it would either wake me up or else I could not fall asleep due to the discomfort. I started seeing Dr. Mark Stengler 6 months ago and all of my Candida Albicans symptoms are under control & the eczema on my hands is completely gone!!!

First we had to kill the Candida Albicans in my body. It was very difficult because I was
allergic to everything. There were only 5 foods that I could eat without breaking out in
severe eczema. This put challenges on Dr. Stengler being able to treat me because most of the supplements that he wanted me to take would make me break out in eczema even worse. Dr. Stengler had to treat my food allergies to help get my hands better. He had to repair my gut lining using supplements because I was suffering from Leaky Gut Syndrome. He put me on an antifungal diet (Doug Kaufmann’s Phase 1 diet), antifungal medications & supplements, homeopathic sulfur and he had me start exercising & lifting weights 5 days per week. Now, 5 months later my food allergies are almost completely gone!

I am so grateful that God directed me to Dr. Mark Stengler. Dr. Stengler is a very gifted
doctor. My husband and twin daughters also see Dr. Stengler as their physician and he
has done a wonderful job managing their health as well. Thank you, Dr. Stengler for the wonderful naturopathic doctor that you have been to my family. We thank God for you being in our lives!

Shannon Poullath

Dr. Stengler helped me a lot with severe shingle pain. It was an amazing surprise. In just three days, I had great relief from the pain and was able to get rid of my Ibuprofen pills. I have been fine ever since. Thanks, Dr. Stengler!

Erin Borisovsky - Escondido, CA

The treatment you prescribed for the large blisters on my leg using colloidal silver was very successful in a fairly short time. Thank you!

Kenneth Switzer

Dr. Mark Stengler saved my life…PERIOD. I was 290 lbs and covered with eczema when I called his office in January 2009. The doctors I went to before discovering Dr. Stengler were top-rated doctors in the fields of dermatology, internal medicine, rheumatology and more. I spent thousands of dollars over and above what my insurance covered for extra tests I insisted on because I knew there was something wrong that they were not diagnosing properly. They told me I was just over 50, fat with an underactive thyroid and that my eczema was incurable and prescribed cortisone. When I went to see Dr. Stengler, I was a size 24 and I wore a bathing suit under my clothes so I could show him the extent of the eczema. It wasn’t a pretty picture. When I asked if he could help me with it, he said, “Yes, it won’t even be hard…”

So, I asked if he could also help me with my digestive issues and weight and he asked, “Will you do what I tell you to do?” and I said “Yes” because I was ready to get well again. You see, I was not fat or sick all my life. In fact, I was 145 lbs (and I am 6’2′) most of my adult life until the past 10 years or so. I am ecstatic to report that at age 56, thanks to Mark Stengler (and Andrea Weisel), I am a size 10 again…AND I have NO eczema at all! I lost 100 lbs in less than 7 months following his advice…and though most of the eczema cleared up right away, I did have some stubborn spots; but they are now healed, too. Thank you, Dr. Stengler! God bless you and your work! I hope I can help you spread the gospel of natural cures to those who need them because I am convinced that if I had not met you, I would still be fat and sick and depressed about the prospect of living out the rest of my days that way. You changed my life and I am forever grateful.”

SLEEP PROBLEMS, INSOMMIA

I have had sleep problems since I was a teenager. In my early 20s, my doctor sent me to the prestigious Stanford Sleep Clinic. Their recommendation was prescription sleeping pills. I experienced so many adverse side affects that I stopped taking them. Since then I have been to many doctors over the years as not being able to sleep has been a curse to the quality of my life. I started learning about natural medicine about 10 years ago. I experimented with different natural therapies and sometimes got improvement, but it was never long lasting. I have been sleeping well now for a little over a year with the natural treatment Dr. Mark has given me. He has proven to me that “uncurable” conditions can be resolved with the proper natural treatment.

THYROID AND HORMONE IMBALANCE

It is great working with Dr Stengler. He listened to all my concerns and addressed them all. My hot flashes were gone within a week. I have more energy and a more positive outlook. I’ve been tested borderline thyroid for many years and my primary care doctor did not want to do anything. Dr Stengler said that it was important to get my thyroid at optimal condition and gave me a homeopathic. The next time I tested, I was in the optimal range. I’m very pleased!

Isabella V - San Diego, CA

I went to Dr. Stengler to help me with my thyroid and subsequent struggles with depression. He helped me greatly by switching me to a natural thyroid and prescribing a regimen of daily supplements. My thyroid is now balanced and I rarely experience depression. I have also taken my four children to him and they are all healthy and doing well academically.

WEIGHT LOSS

I lost 28 pounds in 30 days! Powerful experience. Easy, and extreme results right away. There was no intense carb/sugar withdrawal either. Plus, the healthy habits, ie: shopping, making lunch are great tools to take forward. Not to mention the financial gain by not running my ATM card through dozens of “food” stops through the day. That savings alone practically paid for the protocol. Of course, I need to buy new clothes since I have none that fit anymore!

Mike Olmert - La Jolla, CA

I lost 28 pounds in six weeks with Dr. Stengler’s HCG weight loss program. The staff was knowledgeable, caring, and enthusiastic. The diet plan was healthy, reasonable, and a wonderful nutritionist assisted me in my journey. My BMI went from a 29.3 to a 25.8. I went from having purchased my first size 14 pants to having plenty of room in my size 10 pants. It is so much fun shopping, even in my own closet! More importantly, I lost 15 inches total, and 6.5 of those inches came from my waist. Gaining my waist back and loosing those muffin tops was really important to me.
Most importantly, however, I have continued to maintain my weight two months after completion of the program. I look and feel younger and healthier and my husband feels like he has a new woman. I would highly recommend Dr. Stengler’s program. Thank you!

What a breakthrough! I had tried to lose weight for years with a strict low calorie diet (1200-1300 calories) and intensive exercise (up to 2 hours daily). Frustratingly, I was unable to lose weight. Dr. Stengler put me on a special diet along with a prescription of HCG cream. It helped to control my appetite and burn fat. I lost a total of 24 pounds in one month! Even better news is that I have been able to keep the weight off and have actually lost a few more pounds with a less strict diet without HCG for several months. It seems my metabolism is reset and I don’t crave the carbohydrates like I did before.

I LOVE the results I got from doing the HCG diet! I lost 20 pounds in 30 days and 2 and 1/2 inches off my waist. My regular doctor was skeptical so she ran blood tests when I had been on the diet for about 2 1/2 weeks and the results were wonderful. Hormone levels, cholesterol, triglycerides were all normal. My husband and friends can’t believe the difference. I feel better than I’ve felt in years!

I am 62 years old and have spent the last year and half trying to lose weight—cutting back on food, exercise—nothing worked. After being on the HCG protocol for 1.5 cycles, I have lost 15 pounds, but more than that—inches! I have gone from a size 12 pant to a size 8 and am not done yet!! I am never hungry and have never felt better in my life. Lots of energy!

Before coming to Dr. Stengler it seemed no matter what I did to lose weight, it didn’t work. With the supplements and directions from Dr. Stengler, I’ve finally been successful losing the weight and getting my body healthy. It is great to look and feel good!

I have had trouble losing weight all my life. On Dr. Stengler’s regimen, I lost 30 pounds in three and a half months! My internist said I look 10 years younger and to stick with the program. My glucose and cholesterol levels have gone down and my knee pain is gone.

A couple of years ago, I was diagnosed with a hypothyroid condition and was prescribed Synthroid. I was already experiencing severe insomnia, nausea, dizziness, depression, puffy face, weight gain, the inability to lose weight, no matter what exercise and eating plan, high cholesterol, foggy thinking and forgetfulness, decreased stamina/energy, thinning hair and eyebrows, and much, much more. They Synthroid not only failed to eliminate any of these symptoms, but actually made them more severe and added new symptoms to the already long list.

I was feeling beyond frustrated and hopelessly sick when I saw Dr. Stengler who performed thorough testing and diagnosed me with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. He then prescribed a natural thyroid medication and within one to two weeks, most of my symptoms started lessening and disappearing altogether. After years of trying to lose weight, I was finally able to and have lost 35 pounds! Most of all, I started feeling joy and hope again. I still have occasional struggles with the Hashimoto’s symptoms, but I am so grateful that there is an alternative to the synthetic thyroid medications. Thank you, Dr. Stengler for your expertise, your dedication and for really listening and caring!

Dr. Stengler’s HCG protocol has helped me tremendously! I lost 30 pounds in 40 days. I am not short of breath. It is a lot easier for me to breathe. My worries of being overweight have gone away. I have learned how to control my hunger cravings and have changed my outlook on food.

This HCG has been amazing. I went from a size 18 to a size 10. 198 pounds to 158 pounds. My waste went from 40 inches to 32.5 inches. Never before happened on any other diet. Thank you so much.
