Both Dr. Angela and Mark Stengler provide a very valuable service to individuals dealing with cancer. They offer complementary care for patients receiving surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, or other conventional therapies. Their nutritional therapy focuses on improving the patients' immune response. Dr. Stenglers' treatments improve detoxification which is essential for those receiving conventional therapies. They also focus on lessening symptoms such as muscle wasting, fatigue, digestive upset, mood changes, as well as hair loss.

Cancer Basics

Cancer is an umbrella term that refers to more than one hundred different types of diseases, which are typically identified according to the location where a tumor first appears. Nearly all the cells in our bodies need to be replaced on a regular basis. Some cells, like those that make up the intestinal lining, die out quickly and are replaced every few days. In other parts of the body, the cells live for years before they divide and create new ones. Under special circumstances, such as an injury or illness, healthy new cells may grow quicker than normal to replace those that are damaged. When the area is healed, the cell growth slows back down to its normal pace.

Cell Growth

Usually, the genes that control the growth of cells automatically know when to start and stop the replication process. But when those genes are mutated-- perhaps due to an inherited flaw or more frequently because of dietary and environmental factors-- cells may start to multiply and divide at an unusually fast pace. Occasionally cancers are benign (meaning that they are non-cancerous and relatively harmless), as in the case of warts or uterine fibroids.

Malignant Growth

Other growths, however, are malignant. They draw nutrients away from the healthy tissues that border them, and they hinder the body's normal functions, to a potentially deadly degree. If a tumor continues to grow, its cells might spread out via the blood vessels or lymphatic system to other parts of the body, where they form new tumors. Once this process, called metastasis, is underway, there is the danger of dying from the complications that can occur. Although many cancers can be treated successfully when detected early, the unfortunate fact remains that they are a leading cause of death in the United States. Every minute, another person dies of some form of the disease.


Dr. Stengler works with people that are under the primary care of an oncologist to provide supportive and complementary treatment. This includes supporting detoxification during chemotherapy and radiation, tissue healing after surgery, immune system improvement, and general body balancing depending on what weak organ systems are identified.
