In brief: It can't

No diet will reverse the fibrotic changes of cirrhosis.
I would recommend a well balanced healthy diet low in sodium.

In brief: Watch Carbs, alcohol

Cirrhosis means liver damage- you need to cut out any alcohol and decrease carbs- excess carbs add to fat collection in the liver which leads to worse cirrhosis.
