I have no reason to believe that this will specifically help hepatitis b though it could help the joint disease.

Yes if no cirrhosis: Aleve(naproxen) and Motrin(ibuprofen) are primarily excreted by the kidneys and not metabolized in the liver. If a patient with NAFLD is asymptomatic, has normal liver function(bilirubin) and no evidence of cirrhosis Aleve and Motrin can be taken without toxicity.

With non-alcoholic fatty liver is milk thistle and vitamin e+ exercise effective and if so what dosage?
Unknown: as to whether they are effective. There are studies on both sides of this issue, and the majority of studies have not shown efficacy of either medication in preventing the progression or promoting the improvement of liver inflammation.
