call me crazy but i figured out of the lesser of two evils would i rather suffer from bad health or a few moments of something tasting bad, i chose the bad taste, haha. i simply melt a teaspoon in a jigger glass by setting the jigger into a larger bowl of hot water & let it melt, then i hold my breath [ seems easier ] down it & immediately follow with a small glass of v8 juice, it helps get rid of the after taste, and as for the colonix, i have only been on it for a couple of weeks, so it is for me to soon to tell anything, i really don't see anything, i think everything i have felt so far has been thanks to the evco. but have been told that different people experience results at different times, some don't feel anything for as much as a month so i am willing to give it the benefit of the doubt. will keep you posted though. good luck.
