i don't think so my friend. because, i still flush on occaison now, and get no stones, despite Epsom Salts , and despite oil. you can't seem to accept the fact that flushing, in fact, flushes something out. no matter how many times it hits you in face. besides, clear Epsom Salts go in solution in water, and come out in solution (clear). they suddenly don't turn color and clump together.
