honestly now that i know about the liver flush, i really think that gall/ liver stones are my 'root' cause for getting so polluted/congested... a high protein diet/low or no fat diet may have brought the stones on. and everything my body 'collected' after that is just pollution all around us. it's the missing piece of the puzzle i feel. i personally think that your mom should decide whether she wants to/is up to it - after all a woman doesn't live to that age without knowing a thing or to but then again other family could be persuasive. hard to say as my family takes the traditional route so i'm out here on my own doing this with no support.
