I too hate olive oil in large amounts. I have successfully used safflower oil on ten or more flushes and got great results. Safflower oil is tasteless. As far as I have experienced, there is no magic in using olive oil. I also used bottled grapefruit juice instead of fresh-squeased and still get results. My thought is to make this process as simple and easy to do so that I stick with it. I also am research oriented and RARELY accept the accepted way of doing things !
:) Happy flushing.
Also, I always have relaxing music on while doing a flush. I am attempting to LOVE my body , NOT beat it into submission.
