I used to have a lot of respect for Dr. Weil, and in many ways I still do. I was living in Tucson and friends suggested I attend his graduate program, but one downside is that he seems to have very strong views that aren't open to debate. What's the point of going into alternative health and not being open to investigating the true roots of disease.
I have had the same thoughts about if olive oil causes the stones, but then it wouldn't make any sense that stones would become less in time. Wouldn't they stay the same. And yes, some of my stones are brown but if you push on them you see they are green inside. From what I've heart, the green is from the bile, so obviously these brown stones were old.
Also, if this were the case, why would people experience such great benefits from the flush?
Just some thoughts, but I do find it odd that an "alternative health guru" is so set in his protocols. I'm looking forward to my next flush, maybe not the oo so much, but heh I'm committed to my health and I think this is one of the single most effective steps I can take. tbg
