I admire your determination and commend you for giving up diet coke !! Even after reading all the bad things about it, I had a real struggle giving it up. Today I would not touch any soda, diet or not. I would rather have a nice glass of water.
I found that two cup oil recipe on another site, before I came to Curezone. It worked for me, and I was desperate at that time to get stones out, and fast ! I have tired other recipes using less oil. This one works best for me. I have done, I think, 16 flushes now and still get stones out. I fell off the good food wagon, down into the gutter of eating some garbage and.....had the beginning of another attack a few weeks ago. It was a wake up call and I am glad it happened when it did. (Better sooner than later.) We can flush and flush, keep getting stones out. As long as we keep eating foods that make stones form, this could just keep going on and on. For me, pain is the motivator. It straightens me right out, gets me back on track. I am like you....I do not ever, ever want to have another full blown attack like the first one. I did a total turn around with the things I eat over night. It just is not worth the pain !
Keep reading on Curezone. You will be amazed at how much bearing what we eat has on how we feel.
