You know, it's weird, but for me I have found that I can't do BOTH the lax tea and the SWF! For some strange reason the combination causes me to bloat up and NOT eliminate. I can't explain it - in fact, it makes no sense whatsoever. But it's my experience. What can I tell you? Try doing one or the other and see if it changes anything. For me, I stick to the SWF (Salt-Water-Flush) since I can more readily predict when I will be in the bathroom.
