Is there any alternatives of Liver Transplant?

Sir, My dad is having Chronic Liver Disease past 8 months. He is non-alcoholic. He is having jaundice (Bilirubin=4.5), Ascites, Spleenomegaly. He is taking the following tablets: Ursocol 150 (3times a day), Silbostin, Spiactone-T past 8 months. His condition has not improved. Doctor has said that Liver Transplantation is the only cure. Are there any alternatives? As we cannot afford for Liver transplant. Will ayurvedic treatment help?

Nephrologist 's  Response
Since his bilirubin is 4.5 and he is on ursocol and spironolactone is suspect he is a chronic liver disease patient with portal hypertension. Your doctor is right about him requiring a liver transplant. The treatment he is receiving now will only help fight the symptoms but not the pathology in itself
