I am interested in these products but the prices are fairly high and the shipping is a lot too.

I was looking at:

But i am interested in anything, i really don't have really really bad acne but would like to stop it, i want something that will get my liver detoxyfied, cleaned, working properly so i can flush later on, i've read of milk thistle and other detox pills that have some good herbs mixed in them.

The significant problems we face in life cannot be solved with the same state of mind we created them.

I'm looking more into this now. I went to my health food store today and many of their milk thistle supplements had the same liver-supporting ingredients that Julia's stuff has like: curcuma, gentian root, bupleurum, tumeric, etc. I'm definitely gonna get a liver-supporting herb soon.

JC, Which type of milk is the best one? Is almond milk ok?

There is no best one. Depends on what you're looking for.

Goat's milk is known to be the closest to mothers milk. In the world, more people drink goat's milk than cow milk. Those who are lactose intolerant can drink this one.

Soy milk...is soy! 'Nuff said.

Almond milk is pretty good. It has good natural fats and protein. Do you know how to make it naturally? Two ways:

Method One

*1 cup ground almonds

*2 cups boiling water

*Combine almonds and water. Steep for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Sieve the mixture to remove coarse grains OR (preferably) blend mixture in electric blender until grains are absorbed. Yield - 2 cups almond milk.

Method Two

*1 Part Almonds

*4 Parts water

*To activate almonds, peel off the brown shell, soak overnight, pour off water

Or...you can just buy it! It's lactose free too. biggrin.gif/

I have a the flush kit from sensiblehealth.com. It has four bottles GCG, Chinese Bitter, Curcuma, Coptis. I tried for three days (that three tablespoons out of 3 of the four bottles) and gave up. I paid 100 dollars for it, and am willing to depart with it for 50bucks. If your interested let me know, cause honestly its going to go in the trash soon

Don't throw it in the trash! What a waste. Will Julia give you a refund?

Good question!!!! I never even thought of that, since I opened I figured my loss. I will have to look into it, although someone does want it and I would to go back on my word/post...

I hope that she can give you a refund on it, or something at the very lease. In any case, you just said that it was conflicting with your schedule right? That's no reason to give up so quickly. Maybe you'll have a chance to use it later on down the road. They're just herbs after all (right?), so I'm guessing that they have a long shelf life. Bon Chance!
