About Liver Cancer

Liver cancer is the 7th most common cancer in the United States. Men suffer from this cancer three times more often than women. In the past 37 years, the number of liver cancer cases have tripled.

When patients first suspect they have this type of cancer, they undergo a variety of tests to identify the disease.

Sympthoms of liver cancer

At its early stages, liver cancer may not manifest itself so it can be hard to diagnose. Most liver cancer patients, who hear the diagnosis at the early stage, discover the disease accidentally. As liver cancer progresses, patients may experience the following symptoms:

  • Stomach pain
  • Abdominal discomfort
  • Yellowish skin and eye whites turning yellow
  • Light color stools
  • Vomiting
  • Feeling nauseous
  • Easy bruising
  • Weakness and fatigue

Diagnosing Liver Cancer

In order to diagnose the liver cancer at its early stages, it’s vital to know the patient’s medical history. The people with a higher risk of liver cancer:

  • Are over 50 years old
  • Have suffered from hepatitis B or C
  • Have been consuming two or more alcoholic drinks per day for years
  • Suffer from liver cirrhosis (which is often caused by hepatitis and/or alcohol abuse)
  • Have been exposed to aflatoxin (toxic substance excreted by certain types of mold)
  • Suffer from diabetes
  • Are obese

The doctor starts from examining the medical history and proceeds to do the following tests:

  • Liver function test
  • Abdominal CT or MRI scans
  • Blood tests (check for alpha-fetoprotein)
  • Liver biopsy

Standart Liver Cancer Treatment

Once a patient is diagnosed with liver cancer, the standard treatment procedure includes:

  • Hepatectomy (Removing part of the liver)
  • Liver transplant
  • Ablation (using heat or ethanol injections to kill the cancer cells)
  • Chemotherapy
  • Radiation therapy
  • Targeted (medication) immunotherapy
  • Artery embolization – blocking the hepatic artery by injecting medication to reduce the blood flow to the liver
  • Chemoembolization – injecting chemotherapy meds into the hepatic artery

All the above methods are mostly unpleasant. Some are painful and cause the patient to suffer significantly.

Alternative Liver Cancer treatment

More and more liver cancer patients are turning to alternative treatments, which involve boosting the immune system to help the body fight cancer on its own. Alternative liver cancer treatments have been known to help patients successfully treat it. Insulin Potentiated Therapy (IPT) to kill the cancer cells directly. Heat and Ozone to make the environment unfavorable to the cancer. Homeopathy: we prepare a remedy from your pathology slides and use it to treat your cancer. Some others that are used as part of the therapy include:

  • Acupuncture – can help strengthen immune function and reduce pain
  • Herbs – several studies have shown that milk thistle can help treat liver cancer
  • Exercise – fights the fatigue, which comes with liver cancer
  • Diet – proper diet can help the liver fight the disease
  • Massage – can deal with edema, which is common in liver cancer patients

Common Questions

What is alternative or integrative cancer treatment?

At EuroMed Foundation, alternative or integrative cancer treatment is an overarching term we use to describe the many complementary therapies we employ to kill cancer cells and support your body’s ability to heal itself. Licensed integrative cancer medicine specialists oversee all of our treatments, which have been shown to benefit overall health and well-being while treating the malignancy.

What are my treatment options?

Our treatments target cancer cells with low-dose chemotherapy while strengthening your health and immune system. We offer the George Protocol, which involves a homeopathic immune modulator, and numerous other complementary therapies as part of a customized treatment plan that targets your precise condition. We believe combining many positive treatments creates the best results.

Is alternative or integrative cancer treatment safe?

Our alternative or integrative cancer therapies are much safer than traditional treatments such as full-dose chemotherapy and radiation because the body is exposed to much less toxicity. Licensed physicians who hold themselves to the highest medical and ethical standards perform all treatments. They are committed to improving the well-being and the life of every patient who visits EuroMed Foundation.

Is alternative or integrative treatment as effective as traditional treatment?

Many of our patients turn to us after months or years of unsuccessfully fighting cancer using traditional treatments. For many patients, alternative or integrative therapies provide effective treatments to fight off their disease.

Is alternative cancer treatment covered by insurance?

Whether your treatment is covered by your insurance provider depends on your selected therapy and your coverage plan. Our staff can help you navigate the sometimes complicated intricacies of your plan to determine whether you might qualify for coverage.

Are there alternative therapies I can follow at home?

Yes. We help patients make lifestyle changes, including nutrition and exercise, that boost the immune system. We also introduce ways to help patients relieve their minds. Many side effects of cancer – such as fatigue, nausea, sleep problems, stress, and pain – can be alleviated through changes in diet, nutritional supplements, basic relaxation techniques, or a combination of these. The EuroMed Foundation team considers our patients as family and we give them specific strategies to improve their health and overcome cancer.

Am I a Good Candidate for Alternative Cancer Treatment?

Most patients who contact us will respond well to our therapies. That includes many who have already undergone conventional chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and/or surgery. Those treatments typically suppress the function of your immune system, which needs to be strengthened and retrained for effective long-term success of alternative treatments.

In certain cases a patient’s cancer is too advanced or doesn’t respond to our therapy. In those situations we usually refer that patient to another cancer center for treatment that is better suited to them. Our doctors will evaluate your condition and find a treatment path that is customized for you.
