Thanks, spiralocean, that was very, very helpful; I thought the SWF (Salt-Water-Flush) worked for everybody and there was something wrong with me. I'm going to try it tomorrow with 3 tsp of salt. I'll also be sure not to lie down, though I hadn't been anyway. I just can't believe you're supposed to have that many bowel movements per day! I read something else that said you're supposed to have 2 or 3 bowel movements every day of your life; every time you eat, you're supposed to have one. (A complete one.) And the volume of intake should equal approximately the volume of output. The missing volume - if your output is much smaller than your intake - is sticking to the walls of your colon and wreaking havoc on your health. I can't believe that!
And thanks for telling me about the tea - it's good to know you're sluggish after having the tea for ten days and then stopping the tea - I was afraid of that - according to the book, your bowels are supposed to be improved - when you start eating again, bowel movements should be frequent and natural, not sluggish! I'm very frustrated that Burroughs didn't specify the type and dosage of laxative tea. I'm SURE that drinking 1 - 2 cups per day of the laxative teas on the modern market constitutes laxative abuse, and is harmful!!
