I'm so glad to hear everything went well! It took me a couple of infusions to feel a lot better. As far as alcohol goes, hopefully someone will come along and answer that for you. I don't drink, so I don't know the answer. The best of luck to you!! Blessings, Julie

I'm happy to hear it went well! I'd be cautious for a good long while with food and drink. You will need to learn over time what gives you trouble and a way to do that is by keeping a food journal and trying things one at a time. Take care!
