The first thing to consider before you decide which treatment is better is to understand their pros and cons. How is this going to benefit and/or
aggravate the situation? Chemoembolization mainly delivers a high dose of chemotherapy directly to the organ depriving the tumor and its blood supply
by blocking, or embolizing, the arteries that feed the tumor. It can be effective in treating primary liver cancers, especially when combined with
other therapies. Radioembolization is much easier on the patient than systemic therapy. Radiofrequency energy can be given without affecting the
patient’s overall health and most people can resume their usual activities in a few days. This therapy can shrink the tumor, but it all depends on
the size and can greatly improve their quality of life.
I would say radioembolization causes less harm. I am not sure how severe the condition is, but you might also need to take into consideration that the
liver is an organ that is mainly nourished by proteins (amino acids) and it’s a great energy source. People with liver cancer tend to have chronic
fatigue, weakness, etc. Therefore, if you decide to do any of these treatments, please consider other alternatives. For example, supply her body with
high doses of antioxidants because the liver might already be too damaged and it won’t tolerate more toxins (either from chemotherapy or the
What I usually suggest is to first undergo a detoxification process and/or chelation therapy. This will allow the body to have an internal cleanse.
Then provide products like Fucoidan (especially Umi No Shizuku Fucoidan), AHCC (mushroom extracts) and AFA (microalgae from Oregon, very good, if not
the best protein source) because they will promote a great increase in immunity, an antioxidant effect and they tend to be very precise in activating
the stem cells that regulate immunity. Vitamins C (2-5 grams per day, especially in powder form), E, D are very essential, as well as, Coenzymes Q10
and A. There are other antioxidants like grape seed extract, green tea, NAC, Alpha lipoic acid, etc.
I hope this helps and blessings to you and your mom.
