I've only done one flush so far but I accidentally had a teaspoon of oil for my candida protocol that morning and still ended up with about 200 stones. I did ES capsules since I didn't want to turn myself off of it on the first go-round. I hear the OO (Olive-Oil) goes better through a big straw. I have to do lemon because of the candida and parasites and I didn't find it all that terrible, but then I drank the oil and juice separately. I mean, it was terrible, but not all that...I slept solidly through the night and didn't have any BMs til 11am. So it's different for everyone. Don't give up! You did a good job!
