Re: Can other oils work in place of olive oil? Flaxseed oil, anyone?
> I am preparing for my next (second) flush. I really like the taste of flaxseed oil, and I realized that I might be able to get more of it down than with olive oil. I read that the more oil you can stomach the better, as it prompts the bile ducts to release more bile, thus flushing more stones out.
> So, hoping to make the flush more effective this time, I would like to try the liver/GB flush with flaxseed oil instead of olive oil. Maybe even wheat germ oil. Does olive oil have any special properties over flaxseed oil (or other oils for that matter) that make it preferable in a liver/GB flush?
The reasons why almost all protocols include olive oil instead of flaxseed oil or any other are:
- Cold pressed Olive oil (virgine) is easiet to get and to keep while fresh flaxseed oil is hardest to get and hardest to keep (must be kept refrigerated)
- Olive oil is easiest to swallow and digest for majoriti of people, chances of having urge to threw up are the least with olive oil.
- many people are intolerant of other oils, but up to today, I never met a single person who can't tolerate olive oil.
- First Liver Flush
protocols are hundreds of years old. Few hundreds years ago, olive oil was the only oil known and available
So, if you think you can better tolerate any other oil, just use it, and let us know the results ... very few people tried some other oils, and we need more experience.
Somewhere in this forum you can read a message posted by someone who was using walnut oil with equally good success as when using olive oil.
