I felt better slightly with the first four Liver Flushes I did (gb removed last year.) But I continued to have pain, nuasea, bad diarrhea. It wasn't until flush number 5 (others done every 2-3 weeks) that I passed some stones the size of a small walnut. That is when I felt like a new person. Shoulder blade pain was gone for the first time in 10 years for example. Pain and nuasea, diarrhea was essentially gone. I only have them now when I am over due to do a flush. I am flushing every 2-4 weeks until June of next year. I just completed flush number 8 and got out over 200 more stones, so I am still congested in my liver. But severe symptoms are gone.
