What to do to cleanse the liver. Will it get cured of its own?

Also come this April 2013 we will be waiting 5 years we were told that 5 years is just about the usual time if you do not get a new liver which my husband has not all the doctors tell us that my husband is much sicker than his meld score reflects. My husband is only 61 and I am tempted to try herbs and other things if that might help along with cleansing of the liver. What do you think ?

Hello,
The Model for End-Stage Liver Disease (MELD) system was implemented on February 27, 2002 to prioritize patients waiting for a liver transplant. MELD is a numerical scale used for adult liver transplant candidates. 
If the doctors say that your husband is much more sicker than the actual MELD score,then it is very serious.
There is no herbal medicine with proven scientific evidence,which can cure a end stage liver disease.There is no point opting for herbal medicine as that may deteriorate the condition even more.There is no way by which liver can be cleansed.
You must try to get the liver transplant done as early as possible,as that is the only scientific and proven way,which can cure your husband.
Thanks
