Some-persons have occasionally reported slight to moderate nausea when taking the olive oil/citrus juice; this nausea will slowly disappear by the time you go to sleep. If the olive oil induces vomiting, you need not repeat the procedure at this time. This occurs only in rare instances. This flushing the liver and gallbladder stimulates and cleans the organs.
Persons, who have chronically suffered from gallstones, biliousness, backaches, nausea, etc., occasionally find small gallstone-type objects in the stool the following day. These objects are light to dark green in color. They are very irregular in shape, gelatinous in texture and vary in size from grape seeds to cherry seeds. If there seems to be a large number of these objects in the stool, the flush should be repeated in two weeks.
