Do you mix everything together and drink it? Do you add water to it? And, is 1/2 cup for grapefruit juice and lemon juice too? What kind of grapefruit juice do you get? Sorry for all of the questions but I really need to try one of these detoxes.
1/2 cup is just the cold pressed extra virgin olive oil. To that you add the juice of one grapefruit and one lemon. The recipe didn't specify any particular type of grapefruit. No, theres no added water. Just the OO, and the juices.
It clearly provokes a substantial toxin release from the liver, but I apparently reabsorbed most (if not all) of it before I evacuated as evidenced by the Herx-like episode.
I think the problem was the liquid stool was ready to come out long before I woke up and it sat in my bowel for a few hours at least where I reabsorbed a lot of the toxins. (when I got up at 8am there was a LOT ready to go)
You are supposed to do the olive oil mixture (which is the part that triggers the bile release) right at bedtime so that just about
the time you wake up, the release is just then entering the colon. I guess
the idea is you run to the toilet so quickly all morning and afternoon long that there's no opportunity for that reabsorption.
