I'm with you, I hate the Epsom Salts . I actually don't mind the oil and grapefruit mixture, it's tasty compared to that Epsom Salt crap. some people have mentioned that Dr. Atkins recommends using Milk of magnisa instead of the Epsom Salts . I would like to hear from someone on how that works. Maybe I'll have to be the ginny pig. I just hate to go through the effort of preparing for a Liver Flush and having it be a failure because I did not drink the Epsom Salts . I know that using the epsom salts works, my Liver Flushes have been very succesful.
