Re: Triphala vs Senna?
I am on day 12 and never done the SWF (Salt-Water-Flush)
and never will. I WILL gag & throw up. I cannot tollerate the massive salt dose. I lived in Florida all my life and always gagged and pseudo threw up if I swallowed the ocean water.
The book mentions the SWF (Salt-Water-Flush)
IF your tea (morn & eve) is NOT helping you eliminate enough!
I don't think the senna has anything to do with the flush... but I am a newbie... and so far the only one answering you.
I believe the important thing is to be ELIMINATING as frequently as possible. The book says... I believe it says... at least 3-4 times a day. I have done a tea mid afternoon!
The deiters tea is very tricky BUT IT WORKS! The steeping for 1 or 2 minutes WILL NOT move me. Steeping 3 to 4 min moves me, but I get a tad crampy and 4 hours later- if I am lucky.. I go.
Are you steeping the dieters tea too long??? If you steep it as long as I do... that could be too much and you need to go to the 1 or 2 mnute steep.
If you do the one minute steep and still have an unpleasant experience as you so delicately put it... I'd stick with what works for me... your Triphala.
