You probably mean HBsAg. This is the surface antigen of Hepatitis B virus. When your husband is HBsAg Positive, this mean he has an Hepatitis B infection, whether he shows symptoms or not is unimportant.
Patients who are not having symptoms often have chronic liver problems and could develop serious liver disease.
This infection is transferred by exchange of body fluids and sexual contact. I would suggest you get yourself test and if you are negative please get yourself vaccinated immediately. While this infection will not normally transfer to your son, it would be good to get him vaccinated too.
I have not heard of any Ayurvedic medicine cure HBsAg positivity. In fact this disorder was not known int eh times of Ayurveda, so I would say that the claim to convert him into HBsAg -ve is false, please do not try to get such a treatment. You will waste a lot of money and time. It would be better to refer him to a good hepatologist, (there are many good people in Maharashtra, depending on which city you live in).
Please visit a good hepatologist as early as possible.
