I began using the Chinese Bitters back in the summer. I noticed that I could for longer periods without getting hungry or feeling hypoglycemic, even though I am not a diagnosed diabetic (it runs in my family). That was the main difference I noticed. I used the Gold Coin Grass for about a month before doing a Liver Flush and from what I can remember, I had a successful liver flush. They are both great products. Julia Chang recommends to use them separately. Best to you in your health pursuits.
