Life is never as simple as many people expect it to be. On the contrary, life is a web of different routes leading to another with bumps, junctions, and some turns. Like a flowing river, people are led into some uncertain dimensions with infinite learning and growth opportunities. When it comes to authors, it is normal for them to work a day job. Lawyers are the ones who write, and so do teachers and soldiers.
Nonetheless, there appears to be a specific relationship between the medical profession and the art of writing. Like every other professional, doctors, too, have drifted into writing and carving a niche for themselves there. One such combination of a doctor and an author is Dr. Mark Stengler.
Born on February 25, 1969, in Shaunavon, Saskatchewan, Stengler is a naturopathic medical doctor, lecturer, and author. Throughout his over 20 years-long career, he has penned 20 books based on health. The International Journal of Family & Community Medicine, among other medical publications, has published Stengler’s work. Stengler was drawn into becoming naturopathic, with a strong sense of natural medicine being a romantic pursuit. He has always been very much in love with natural medicine and therapies. He has devoted his life to his profession as a doctor out of his passion for helping people through natural medicine. His writing emanates from the stance of being naturopathic.
There is no good replacement for an author who is attuned to living better than a doctor. Their expertise alone makes them a source of great information for healthy living. Good doctors had to be good storytellers long before journals made information sharing much simpler.
Cancer has long been a harrowing disease for many to encounter with. There are several causes of cancer, some of which may be avoided. There are almost no lives that are impacted by cancer. After all, it is the second-leading cause of fatalities. Cancer has a wide and unrelenting impact on everyone in a person’s life, including their children, parents, spouses, siblings, friends, extended relatives, and coworkers. Stengler, along with Dr. Paul Anderson, published a book named “Outside the Box Cancer Therapies: Alternative Therapies That Treat and Prevent Cancer,” in which the two specialists agreed to concentrate on the most important aspects of integrative cancer therapy. In the book, Dr. Stengler and Anderson have touched on the many forms of cancer, their origins, and natural medicines for common issues, including the side effects of chemotherapy and radiation. Their explanations are backed by considerable research and years of clinical experience.
In addition to Outside the Box Cancer Therapies, Stengler has published other books, the most famous being Prescription for Natural Cures. It is now in its third edition, with more than 500,000 copies sold by 2016.
Stengler was just 17 years old when he got severe irritable bowel syndrome, most likely due to drugs used to treat chronic acne. Since he was not receiving enough treatment for his ailment, a family member referred him to a naturopathic doctor. He found excellent outcomes from dietary adjustments and certain supplements, kindling the spark of inspiration in him to pursue a profession in integrative medicine.
Stengler entered the healthcare industry in 1995 and established La Jolla Whole Health, which was eventually relocated to Encinitas, California, due to increased patient demand. It had been transformed into an integrated medicine clinic by 1999. After the expansion, Stengler created more efficient methods for managing chronic diseases to improve care and reduce the strain these conditions place on healthcare systems and people’s daily lives.
Mark Stengler has established a reputation for himself in the healthcare field. He hosted the alternative health-focused Natural Healing TV Show in 2010, which broadcast on PBS, cable networks, and YouTube. Stengler was also a member of Yale University’s Complementary Medicine Outcomes Research Initiative and was selected Doctor Of The Decade 2021 by the International Association Of Top Professionals.
So many doctors have opted to write professionally in addition to practicing medicine. An interesting option, but not an unusual one. Many people may be surprised to learn that many such physicians are now recognized for their writing rather than their medical credentials. Mark Stengler has made his name into the list of contemporary Doctor-writers.
