lauren, stay away from those foods like hotdog that you described. Even though it was a day before the attack that you ate this, it still may not be a good idea to eat these kinds of "bad fat" foods. Keep eating only raw/cooked vegtables. Raw fruits. Drink plenty of water, and fresh squeezed citrus juices. Wait until attacks subside and do another flush as soon as possible. You do need the Epsom Salt to open the bile ducts, but if you are having a reaction to it I don't know what to tell you. You'll have to determine whether you can handle it. The Epsom Salts open the bile ducts and the olive oil pulls the stones out. Do whatever you can to save your gallbladder.
