The same thing happened to me, lagringa. I tried everything alternative and spent buckets of money and ended up doing the combo. Wish I hadn't done all the alternatives as long as I did. My cirrhosis got a lot worse in that time. I tried so hard. I haven't seen anyone posting that they have been cured with anything else. If they were, my guess is they weren't chronic. You'd see people twittering all over the internet if it were true.
