  1. Reading the protocol on Digestzen for no gallbladder-how often do you drink the water with 2 gtts in it. As well, what is the maintenance dose to continue off the Prilosec?

  2. Have you ever heard of DigestZen reacting with face lotion containing AHA’s? I have used Digestzen on the bridge of my nose to clear out old mucus since I am prone to sinus infections. It worked great. Just recently I tried doing it again and I either broke out in hives or burned my skin only where I applyied the Digestzen. I do not have sensitive skin and can usally put most products on without problems. Have you heard of this happening and what would you suggest doing to aleavate these symptoms?

    THank you!
