Seth, I don't know if the one you're following says this or not, but some say not to eat or drink anything after 2 pm. If you do this, you may become very dehydrated. I've done several and although I don't eat past 2 pm, I DO drink water. I think it's important otherwise, it is hard on your kidneys. I did one without drinking and it was rough.
You're not crazy about the Epsom Salts cocktails, lol??? It helps to put the mixture in the fridge. It does get hard to swallow after 2-3 of them, but I hold my nose. Also, personally, I do a series of enema/colonics the next day to assist the toxins in moving out. I've cleared out probably about 5-600 stones, but more so, plain ole' gunk, some of it even crusty.
You're lucky not to have candida anymore! Good Luck to you!
