I had a feeling I wasn't the only one who would have the turnaround with coffee.
An interesting note in trying to decipher my symptoms in hidsight is that both coffee and dandelion both gave me bad symptoms prior to flushing. The dandelion was easy to figure out, but I had just assumed coffee and me didn't get along.
One of the ironies here is that the head anti-flusher, whose name will forever remain anonymous, has repeatedly told his disciples that coffee irritates him, and then goes on to tout bitters as the only solution to liver congestion. Methinks he has some monster stones to deal with still.
Some of the stones I passed were just enormous, there is no way that anything but flushes were going to get rid of them.
