Epsom Salts dilate the bile ducts so as to guarantee safe passage of stones and waste. There should be no pain unless a stone larger than the dilated duct becomes lodged.
Four tablespoons of Epsom Salts are mixed with three cups pure water. One ¾ cup is one dose, and one dose should be taken first at 6pm, then 8pm -- then the olive oil potion at 10pm with absolutely no Epsom Salts after the oil, until the next day that is. After waking a third dose should be taken (it matters not if you wake at 6, 7 or 8am) and then two hours later the fourth and final dose must be taken.
It is recommended that Epsom Salts and water be chilled, but I prefer the taste when it is at room temperature (plus, cool beverages chill the liver). Epsom Salts tastes like the most horrendous filth imaginable, but it is entirely necessary. Some here mix the salts with apple juice, although I tried this and it tasted even worse to my palate! It is a waste of apple juice, in my opinion…
The malic acid in apples and apple juice clears out stagnant bile, and thus it should make for a more pleasant flush.
I know this is easy to say, but do try not to dwell on the negatives as even negative suppositions have a habit of manifesting in the worst possible way. I have had many problems with liver flushing, but it is still more than worth it…
The two most concerning difficulties I have endured thus far are as follows:
Firstly, after one flush I was in so much abdominal pain that I spent most of the day in the foetus position at the end of my bed, crippled in agony and close to tears.
Secondly, I tend to vomit the olive oil potion, and have done so more than I have not. A flush a few months back remains in my mind the most for it was the most troubling. I awoke in the early hours of the morning and before I even had any idea what was happening or how I was feeling I vomited all over my bed; on the pillow, on the sheets, on the mattress, and on the floor! Since that night, I seem to wake up around 5-6am feeling miserable, and after a half hour or so of torment I vomit a little and then feel wonderful. It seems no one else experiences this constant annoyance, so it is clearly best not to trouble yourself with negative possibilities as I am very much in the minority it seems.
Holding your nose will make no difference when drinking the Epsom Salts, for there is little to no scent. It is the taste (and more accurately, that after-taste) that disgusts me; plus, the affect it has on my gut is none too pleasing!
However, when you see stones and parasites in the toilet bowl, the above tribulation means absolutely nothing. The feeling of ethereal awe and splendour experienced the afternoon of the day after the flush is comparable to no feeling I have ever felt before…
