Both Dr. Angela and Mark Stengler offer a very valuable service to patients dealing with cancer. They provide complementary care for patients receiving surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, or other conventional therapies. Their nutritional therapy focuses on improving the individuals' immune response. Dr. Stenglers' treatments improve detoxification which is essential for those undergoing conventional therapies. They also focus on minimizing symptoms such as muscle wasting, fatigue, digestive upset, mood changes, and 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 initially appears. Almost all the cells in our bodies must 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 split and make new ones. Under special circumstances, such as an injury or illness, healthy new cells might grow quicker than normal to replace those that are damaged. When the area is healed, the cell growth slows back down to its normal rate.

Cell Growth

Usually, the genes that manage 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 defect or more generally because of dietary and environmental factors-- cells might start to multiply and divide at an unusually fast pace. Sometimes cancers are benign (meaning that they are non-cancerous and fairly 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 surround them, and they disrupt the body's normal functions, to a potentially deadly extent. If a tumor continues to grow, its cells may spread out through the blood vessels or lymphatic system to other parts of the body, where they create new tumors. When this process, called metastasis, is underway, there is the danger of dying from the complications that can occur. Although many cancers can be treated effectively when caught 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.
