newbie who is throwing up and has 2 other question
hello. this is my first time on the MC and i'm on day 5. i've been doing everything by the book. on day 2 & 3 i didn't eliminate after the SWF, but have sinced learn that's not so uncommon and modified my salt amount on day 4 to see if that was a contributing factor. as a result, i threw up the first SWF and then made another and was able to keep it down for about 55 minutes - however, while having my elimination, i also threw up what was still left of the SWF in my stomach. now its day 5 (today) and i went to do my SWF with just a little more salt than 2 tsp and could hear it moving down my stomach and even into my bowels and yet - i still threw it up, so i took another SWF, but only 20 oz or so to see if i could keep that down (since i knew some of the first had gotten through). i've eliminated since but am concerned about the throwing up. it's not a gag reflex or aversion to the taste (it's not that bad) and i'm able to drink it pretty quickly - so why is this happening? it certainly makes the SWF less appealing to think i may be throwing up every morning. the vomit has been bright yellow (hint of green) - is this bile or lemon oil or what?
my other question relates to doing a liver/gallbladder flush. i'd like to come off the fast and do a flush with apple juice, epson salts and olive oil w/ grapefruit juice - but am wondering if i should and if so, how to best do it? should i start back with food and then do a flush or transition right from the lemonade to apple juice and do a flush from there? any insights or personal experience would be hugely appreciated.
also - in reading various postings, i've learned that it's advised to take probiotics once back on food. does that mean the day 2 or 3? and what type and how much and for how long? any more specifics on that or where to go to read up on that would be so appreciated. i certainly want to take care of my body as best i can as i transition off the fast.
thank you for educating this newbie leela

Good Morning Leela,
I too experienced the SWF throw up and am sad about it.
I couldnt go through trying to drink another 32oz, but I didnt throw all of the origional one up anyways, so im hoping I had enough of it to still do something for me.
