Experienced Asbestos Injury Attorneys Representing Clients Nationwide
Between 2,000 and 3,000 cases of mesothelioma are diagnosed in the United States every year. Early detection is key for the best results from treatment. There are three major options for treating mesothelioma: Surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation. Most doctors utilize multimodal therapy, meaning they choose multiple forms of treatment tailored to the needs of each individual patient in a customized care plan.

Are Alternative Treatments Available?
There are emerging new treatments, alternative treatments, and clinical trials available for treating mesothelioma. Many patients find comfort and hope in researching alternative treatments and medications, often in addition to the treatment plans prescribed by their doctors. Research the IAT Clinic in the Bahamas as well as the Annie Appleseed Project, a non-profit organization focused on alternative therapy designed to build up the immune system.
Knowing your options is empowering, and your care should be your choice.

The Role of Nutrition
While eating well doesn’t cure mesothelioma, it can help you feel better and it can help your body’s immune system work for you. Making sure you get plenty of nutrition can also help your body deal with the harshness and toxicity of treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation.
