I guess I'm not convinced that the liver will always produce new stones. From what I've read on this board....it probably will....but only if we eat an improper diet.
Some (including Telman) say that your system will not be clean until you've flushed 3 times without any stones. Some theorize that the stones are the biproduct of the flush itself...coming from the toxic bile interacting with the olive oil. The toxic bile interaction theory makes logical sense, but can't say if it makes medical sense or not. The toxic bile theory could also be in agreement with Telman's theory (e.g. - when you no longer flush out any stones.....all the toxic bile is gone and the system is working normally as all the OO (Olive-Oil) is completely digested and absorbed into the blood stream)
Regardless of what is really happening, I'm going to keep flushing every 2-3 weeks for the rest of this year. I feel I have every thing to gain and nothing to lose. I darned sure don't want to resort to acid blockers or other medications. I would love nothing more than to completely cleanse my system so I can prove all of my naysayers wrong.
I've completed 7 flushes now and have never had one bad (uncomfortable) experience. I think my system was so far out of whack (acidosis, gall bladder, congested liver, leaky gut) from living on Zantac for 10 years - that it will take 15-20 procedures before I start seeing significant benefits.
I think following these holistic methods of healing are a lot like spiritual healing. It doesn't come all at once...but you need to keep the faith that if you believe and trust the system good things will ultimately come to you. Just be patient and the body will heal itself.
