Been through dialysis several times, mentally not prepared to undergo again. Can ayurvedic or homeopathic treatment help?

HI my mother is 52 and she has been put on dialysis . her creatinine levels are 5-6 and have no diabetes or high blood pressure. People have recommended ayurvedic or homeopathic treatment for her rather than dialysis. She has gone under dialysis 3 times but mentally not able to accept the fact and thinks its a really big thing. Can ayurvedic or homeopathic treatment help her?

At the outset, I wish to say that I am al Allopathic specialist - and I do not know about other systems of treatment. I will not comment.
From our point of view - the only alternative for dialysis is kidney transplant. Dialysis itself is a temporary - an arrangement until transplant. She MUST continue the dialysis.
Reactive depression is well known in this situation - and it the responsibility of family and friends - to help her to tide over it. We have seen several such instances - they finally got well and regretted their opinion. Better be safe than sorry
Take care
Good luck
