I'm in my mid 30s. I have a very good doctor who is very open to alternatives, and who lists the herbs and supplements I need to take. She recommends no drugs. She monitors my liver function tests regularly, as well as checks for other things like calcium, iodine, protein. Currently I'm awaiting the results of a candida test. I've only had one biopsy, but it put my mind at ease (as I am only a stage 1 fibrosis. Personally, I would want to know what state my liver was in.
I take milk thistle, alpha lipoic acid, whey proten, kelp, calcium, zinc, selenium regularly, and rotate some herbs such as licorice, shizandra, danelion, spirulina, chlorella, vit C.
It's fine to experiment with things on yourself, but I believe the help of a qualified alternative doctor, or good naturopath with experience in Hep C will give you greater benefits.
