Bad idea: The mix of epsom salts and grapefruit juice will produce some interesting bowel movements -- dupes may even be told they have passed their gallstones. This kind of thing can land you in the intensive care unit. Why not get with a sensible physician who's open to "holistic medicine" and talk about some lifestyle stuff that will really make you healthier? Best wishes.
