Sorry you have the same reaction I do to If #2!! You ar e right; it's the texture.
Here's what Dr. S. says in his catalog:
Take IF #2 5 times a day. Mix 1 heaping teas. of the powder with 8 oz.
juice or distilled water in a jar with a lid. Shake vigorously, drink immediately. Take 1 hour after your morning nutritional drink, do the same 1/2 hour before lunch, between lunch & dinner, 1/2 hour before dinner, and 1 hour before bed --- 5 heaping teasp per day.
Or, he continues, take it anytime during the day, just be sure to allow 30 minutes before and after meals, juices, or taking your tinctures. Use the entire 8 oz.
jar in one week.
BTW, he really means heaping teaspoons. I had to really heap it up to get the jar finished in a week.
Helpful hint from Dr. S: put a small amount of water in your jar first. Add the powder and then shake it. Then add more water/ juice. This keeps powder from sticking to the jar.
