From Dr. Stengler’s article “Mistletoe Extract – Cancer Breakthrough”: “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… [Read More]
I was so grateful to have Dr. Stengler as part of my medical team. I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2014. My treatment was chemo and radiation. And with Dr. Stengler’s recommendation of supplements and vitamin C IV’s it… [Read More]
“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… [Read More]
Dr. Stengler provides a very valuable service to patients dealing with cancer. He provides complementary care for patients undergoing surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, or other conventional therapies. His nutritional therapy focuses on improving the patients’ immune response. Dr. Stengler’s therapies improve detoxification which is critical for those undergoing conventional therapies. He also focuses on reducing symptoms such as muscle wasting, fatigue, digestive upset, mood changes, and hair loss.
Cancer is an umbrella term that refers to more than one hundred different kinds of diseases, which are generally named according to the area where a tumor first 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 divide and form new ones. Under special circumstances, such as an injury or illness, healthy new cells may grow more quickly than usual to replace those that are damaged. When the area is healed, the cell growth slows back down to its normal rate.
Normally, 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 because of an inherited flaw or more commonly because of dietary and environmental factors – cells may begin to multiply and divide at an unusually fast rate. Sometimes cancers are benign (meaning that they are non-cancerous and relatively harmless), as in the case of warts or uterine fibroids.
Other growths, however, are malignant. They pull nutrients away from the healthy tissues that surround them, and they interfere with the body’s normal functions, to a potentially life-threatening extent. If a tumor continues to grow, its cells may spread 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 risk of dying from the complications that can occur. Although many cancers can be treated successfully when caught early, the sad 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 who are under the primary care of an oncologist to provide supportive and complementary treatment. This involves supporting detoxification during chemotherapy and radiation, tissue healing after surgery, immune system enhancement, and general body balancing depending on what weak organ systems are identified.
