I chickened out. The Epson salts were causing nausea and heartburn--and I took some sodiem bicarbinate to fight that. Then I started thinking--what if the sodiem bicarb messes with the chemistry of what is going on? When the time came to drink the olive oil and the grapefruit and lemon juice....I decided not to and went to sleep instead. Maybe I will regain my courage another day. I kept thinking back to the pain of those gallstone attacks and thinking "Do I want to risk that again?"
