Why

On December 23, 1971, Richard Nixon signed the National Cancer Act and declared a “war on cancer.” Over 40 years have passed since then, and billions of dollars have been raised for cancer research. Some valuable insights into cancer have occurred, but unfortunately we have not seen significantly improved outcomes for cancer as a whole.

In 1900, 1 in 20 people got cancer, but in 2000, that number was 1 in 3.
Over 1 million people are diagnosed with a new cancer each year.
A 2004 report in the Journal of Clinical Oncology revealed that the five year survival rate for stage IV cancer in the United States is just 2.1%.
According to 2005 data from the American Cancer Society, as well as 2010 data from the Centers for Disease Control, we see that the overall death rate for cancer over the past 60 years is virtually unchanged.

We are clearly losing the war on cancer.

Dr. Stegall is ushering in what he believes should be the new standard of care for cancer treatment – 21st century healthcare, which is personalized for each patient and combines the best of modern medicine with effective natural therapies.

Dr. Stegall is a specialist in integrative oncology, which has been defined by the Best Answer for Cancer Foundation as “A systemic, patient-centered, healing-oriented, whole-person, and functional approach to the individualistic causes and treatment of cancer using all appropriate therapies.” Dr. Stegall feels that such a philosophy is our best approach toward fighting cancer.

For the large majority of cancers, Dr. Stegall believes that neither a purely conventional approach nor a purely natural approach is optimal. This is why Dr. Stegall employs insulin potentiation therapy (IPT) using low dose chemotherapy, in combination with natural treatments such as IV vitamin C, herbs, and nutrients.

In addition, he employs advanced cancer nutrition strategies and even off-label pharmaceutical drugs such as low dose naltrexone to provide the body the tools it needs to best fight cancer.

Cancer care should focus on on each patient, and his or her unique history. It should be integrative, holistic, functional, and safe, with as few side effects as possible. The treatment modalities employed should take into consideration each patient’s goals. In order to do this, there must be a strong partnership between doctor and patient with both parties being committed to work closely together for the long term.

Dr. Stegall gained a special appreciation for the doctor-patient dynamic through his research on the topic at Harvard Medical School.
