Can your liver cancer prognosis be improved? Karon Beattie, a cancer survivor, has compiled a cancer treatment reference book detailing over 350 alternative cancer treatments that have been used by thousands of people who beat cancer. Although liver cancer is not highly responsive to conventional cancer treatments, Beattie gives numerous accounts of people surviving liver cancer by alternative treatments. She states that these treatments are not covered by the FDA and usually not patentable by drug companies, resulting in poor knowledge among doctors.
Specifically in relation to liver cancer, Beattie’s book, “Natural Cancer Treatments That Work”, describes a treatment that heats tumors without damaging surrounding tissue. She cites survival rates of 78.1% at four years after diagnosis of liver cancer with cirrhosis of the liver, for patients who had failed to respond to chemotherapy and radiation. This seems an astonishing outcome for a cancer given a poor prognosis by oncologists.
Beattie goes on to detail a Stanford University study that found a common antibiotic was successful in eliminating liver cancer. In 2004, Stanford scientists were able to “turn off” a cancer-causing gene in mice suffering liver cancer, turning cancer cells back to normal. In addition, the author provides 104 first-hand accounts of people who beat liver cancer using natural and alternative treatments. If stories like this are true, why are they not a standard treatment for liver and other cancers?
