riverqueen, Sorry you're not feeling well. I usually get very nauseous. It is my understanding that we are not to drink any water before or during the flush because it just lays on top of the oil. Someone with more experience than I will correct me if I'm wrong. How long after eating did you drink the oil? I usually have the reflux problem because I don't digest the oil very well. I keep something with peppermint in it on the nightstand and when I get nauseous I hold it in my mouth. I don't eat it. Let us know how successful the flush was.
