Natural Remedies for Liver Cancer
What is Liver Cancer?
Primary liver cancer begins in the liver and can be distinguished into four diseases depending on where and what cells are affected: cholangiocarcinoma of the bile ducts, hepatoblastoma in infants, angiosarcoma (hemangiosarcoma) of the blood vessels of the liver, and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC liver cancer) of the main liver cells and is one of the more common forms of liver cancer worldwide. It is important to distinguish that liver cancer is tumor growth that begins in the liver cells, and metastatic liver cancer is cancer that begins in another part of the body and spreads to the liver.
If left untreated, the final stage of liver cancer is stage IV liver cancer; the liver shuts down completely and recovery requires a liver transplant.
Western Medicine's treatment of liver cancer includes a number of options: surgery that removes a portion of the liver, radiation therapy, drug therapy, injections of chemotherapy, heating or freezing cancer cells, and liver transplant surgery. Although surgery is currently the most successful way to treat liver cancer, alternative treatment methods do exist. These cancer treatments include supplements, home remedies, acupuncture and energy healing.
