I have looked high and low for GCG, Coptis and Chinese Bitters. It seems I have to find alternatives locally, which is hard not even knowing what to ask for inthe first place, since I could not find out the latin names for these herbs. Would apple juice do the same job on decongesting the liver and softening the stones? Do you have any suggestions? Also is it possible to shorten the prep time by doing more then one cleanse at the same time? What is the proper order of the cleansing process? I'd appriciate any advice you can give me.
