I mix together 4 tbsp. of espom salts in water and drink three 3/4 c doses. No, I don't take any Epsom Salts the next day. I've never felt I needed to and I'm far too grossed out with the ES to try and drink it again! LOL! I also do not get up at 6:00 am. My first two Liver Flushes I didn't get any stones, but then on my third I stated getting thousands of little green stones. It's such weird but safisfying experience to see all those stones come out! It always makes me anxious for my next one. I plan on flushing till I have no more stones as well. Congratulations on your success! I can't wait to have a clean liver and healthy body! YEAH!!
