Re above .What a horrible story.I hope you are better now.As I had been ill for so long with ME[CFS]I was very worried about taking Epsom Salts , so started by taking teaspoon doses at first.I found that 1 tablespoon would be far too much for me and now use only 1 dessertspoon doses for my Liver Flush program. I have now done 4 flushes and have got out pink 'shrimpy' flukes, rice like eggs and lots of stones some wraped around flukes.I have more energy and feel better in my head. However all the way through the Liver Flush process I have been drinking glases of water with a big pinch of Sea Salt .I was aware of the danger of leaching out minerals from the body and keep a few sachets of electrolyte solution just in case.Could you have had a severe mineral imbalance to start with? Did you do a comprehensive parasite cleanse first? I think both things would make a difference, but I am not a therapist.Hope you sort it out and get well.Love Deotima.
