What you have written is very interesting and although I would like to graduate and be stone free the nature of the flush would indicate that there is unpredictability about the results. I am assuming it will take a long time to get last few stones out but it is a positive step that they are still being expelled.
I certainly agree that theory can be very different from the practice but there is a wide range of people visiting the forum and deciding to flush for a multitude of reasons. I don't have a problem with Andreas because he is stating the norm and many people do flush clean much more quickly than 12 flushes. As Hanna points out flushing isn't the only factor that influences the future and it is also crucial to make some life changes, like taking regular exercise, eating better and stop taking drugs. Before I started flushing my muscles were so painful that it was very difficult for me to exercise and I always got severe pain on my right side. Flushing has allowed me to exercise properly and for the first time in countless years I can run. I threw out all my medicines for Fibromyalgia including antidepressants and painkillers some time ago. As a family we have improved our diets and I grow a lot of what we eat.
However, we are only discussing the interesting distraction of counting stones and the real tangible evidence comes from the way we feel. My original aim was to flush in order to eradicate excruciating gallbladder pain, and this has been achieved. I have also had the reward of getting a significant reduction in my Fibromyalgia symptoms, and end to strange allergies and sensitivities, no longing fearing certain foods, an ability to exercise vigorously, disappearance of moles and a confident positive outlook on life.
It has given me something to believe in and way forward when conventional medicines failed. Although I have tried other remedies in the past Liver Flushing is the only "cure" to be beneficial.
The forum is my therapy group and has introduced to a host of others with similar conditions. I like to share my thoughts with the forum and in return I get much needed support and encouragement.
I am very interested in your observation that about every 5th flush is more productive because I have also noticed this phenomenon. From my own personal limited data it appears that a more productive flush is achieved on approximately a 60 day cycle. The skill is to flush in unison with this cycle if you believe in this.
