well i wonder what kinds of stones they were looking for, and how they "looked" for them. most "soft" stones don't show up on scans, so I wonder if the search they performed actually looked for the soft stones. from what I know Liver Flushing (17 done myself). the soft stones can occupy every nook and crany of the liver. and, other than cutting open the entire liver, you would not be able to find them. I doubt they do this. And, once someone dies, i suspect the soft stones melt, just as they do when outside the body for a little while. these are just educated guesses on my part. I know there is an explanation, even if I don't know it. I used to be very curious about the flushes and how they worked. after doing a few, I didn't care, as long as they worked. which for me, they did in a big way.
