Has anyone tried milk thistle or e-tea for help with liver cancer? Just wondering, if so, how much do you use and did it seem to help?

My husband, Lee has liver cancer. As soon as we got the news I started him on Milk Thistle. And I give Dandelion, Liv-A-New, Zinc, 5000mg vitamin D3, Echinachea, Beta-1,3D Glucan,(I found this researching on line for immune help), and Colostrum. The first three are for the liver and the rest are for immunity. I also give a tonic called Flor Essence, it's a detox. I may also add Reshei Mushroom. My husband's Oncologist thinks they are a waste of time and money, but he can't really come up with a cure , so I pretty much checked with him to make sure he didn't think it would interfere with his treatment. And then I do what I think best. I follow the supplements recommendations. Right now I've cut back on the Dandelion, Milk Thistle and Liv-A-New, because his platelets were down. I read herbals could be counter to building new platelets. So, just till they come up, I will only give vitamins and minerals and phyto nutrients.
