I just took a HCI pill about 15 minutes before the oil and I felt totally fine. Powdered the Epsom Salts in a coffee grinder to get them into fewer capsules. I don't know if he can actually get down the oil. Doesn't the classic coke flush use more oil than the Clark's? I thought the CC flush uses 6 oz. and Hulda's uses 1/2 cup. Ah well. Whatever works. Thanks!
