Default leak from power steering Honda civic ex 2001

I have a Honda Civic EX Coupe with power steering fluid leak. I loose aboutan ounce or two in a week. One shop told me it is leaking from power steering rack seals and the only way to correct that is the replace the Rack. Esti,mtae cost $850. A bit steep. Is there a easier or alternative fix?
Also I learned about presence of power steering leak fixing fluids. I knowHonda uses special power steering fluid. So, is there a power steering leak fix fluid that will not damage Honda power steering system?

No. I'll bet the boots are split. That lets in dirt, which chews up the
seals. Or else the wrong fluid was used.

No. Once it's broken, it stays broken.
