HI U GOOD PEOPLE DOIN, , , , , , ,

Spent several days on the computer searching for kerosene that can be ingested. Found the 100 % Gum Sperit Turpentine for my Candida treatment and while on that trek, I ran across lots of articles about kerosene to cure cancer. Can anyone shed any light on that kind of kerosene. I have keorsene lanterns, heaters and always have industrial kerosene on hand. Our early ancestors used both to stay healthy. I remember my Granddad used Coal Oil for a poisonous snake bite. He lived to be 88. Appreciate any input you may have on both oils. =======RH=========

Robert Henry: Took my first dose (2 sugar cubes saturated) of 100% Turpentine Dec 29. Got a little heavy aftertaste in the gut fallowing, so I air-popped some corn w/ added sunflower oil & sea salt, fallowed by lemon water (increase the bile flow) and woke up latter in the night feeling unusually light. What improvement I noticed that night has seemed to carry on until now. After only one dose I have been telling myself, albeit w/ some reserve, "I've found a new and powerful ally. "

I am planning another dose tomorrow. Maybe to early to draw any conclusions but compared to the effect of other natural anti-pathogens like Grapefruitseed, Olive Leaf, Neem, Oregano, the Turpentine appears waaay more powerful. I guess it all comes down to potency and Turpentine is a highly distilled pure grade. I experienced no herx or die-off to speak of, although I do use lots of fiber and take peroxide cleansing enemas daily. I also found the taste not at all unpleasant, as-a-matter-of-fact, one might add a dropper to a citrus drink enjoyable.

Hi Robert Henry, I noticed a man from the LDN Yahoo Group who is taking kerosene along with Lufenuron (aka dimilin, apparently) to rid himself of candida. (which worked very well) He said he bought it at Lowe's home center, 1K grade, mostly free of sulfur for about $10/gal and takes it (1 T, I believe, but not 100% certain) three times a week. I have no knowledge about the safety of this. He also has cancer and has written interesting protocols he has developed for it, most recently using HCL and water. You might like to join this group and type in the search word kerosene and you will be able to talk to him directly and privately through his email if you hit reply. Best wishes!

HI U GOD FEARING PEOPLE DOIN, , , , , , , , , , , , , JOHNNY'S COME LATELY

I rise to tell all to be aware of charlatans among us. I researched Candida a few years ago and the only person who mentioned turpentine was Dr.Jennifer Daniels and she was not on EC. Now she is in Panama because our Big Brother got after her. She learned of the healing properties of turpentine from her poor patients who learned it from their slave ancestors. It was not a slave thing but a poor person thing, both black and white. That's all they had. Kinda like using burnt motor oil and sulfur to cure your dog of the mange. That's all they had. That is a dig if you are just coming aboard.

Anyways, now we have our regular experts coming to the forefront on the turpentine subject. Does that not bother you? It bothers the heck out of me. I trust all, but verify, and so should you. I am smart as all get out, but I don't know everything. We have a few folks on this site who know everything. Bull.

Ole Robert Henry, you are a gem!

Please keep digging DEEP and never pull up your shovel and pail and leave the beach.

I know in the olden days [ie when ORH was born] used motor oil and sulpher was the shizzle for mange on a dog; its what poor people had - and it did the trick. But nowadays - yup, there is that butt - nowadays [2014] motor oil isn't what it was when you were still wet behind the ears and making mud pies; the motor oil has changed - its all synthetic and with all those additives that your grand pappy never had in his oil when he dipped you in it. This alteration to the staple ingredient is why the remedy is now what we call 'out of date' and 'down right bad fer yer dawg' and especially 'dag near gone kill 'im".

It makes me wonder about turpentine used back when you were knee high to a grasshopper, vs the kind you can get today. I wonder what has changed - for the good OR bad.

As you say, its a subject that requires careful personal research, and as usual I appreciate the leads you always provide so we can do our own digging for answers.

Thanks as always for keeping us thinking - :-)

Hello Robert Henry from Ten Mile Tn:

I trust many people here at EC. However, there's one particular person that's gained my full trust. That person is Bill Thompson. Take a look at his view on turpentine. It's the absolute fastest & best way to get rid of candida & its bio-films. The turpentine just needs to be taken at appropriate doses.

There's going to be detox from this stuff. It's a given! I've been on it myself but I get worse detox symptoms from iodine than I do from turpentine. Turpentine is absolutely safe! This stuff can cure a lot of diseases! I totally trust Bill & his research!

HI U THERESA, , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Since us slow Southern folk still don't understand you fast northern folk, was this an insult, a compliment, or somewhere in between?

My friend , Danny, was reared in the Smokies near Tellico, Tn. His dad was the game warden in that region and he used Danny to run the hills and hollows behind his Plott dogs when they were hunting hawgs or bears. This was before cb's, tracking collars or 4 wheel drive trucks. I told Danny what you had said about burnt motor oil and dogs. He said she would not want to know how my dad treated his dogs for mange. They had a 55 gallon 3/4 full of oil and sulfur and dumped their dogs in head first. When the dog was soaked , they pulled them out.

Then and today, some folks don't want the problem so they just shoot the mangey dog. I don't do that. Maybe some of your logic is due to your metropolitan environment. You try to be country, but you don't know how. You don't want to know what I do to critters who get into my garden, berries, or orchard. As the good book says, man is given dominance over all creatures. Somehow folks lately have gotten that just "basackards".

Good sparring with you, but I figure EC has had about all they want from the both of us. Soes, I wish you well and am signing off and suggest you do the same.

Love you like a cousin. ====OLE ROBERT HENRY===========

Robert Henry from Ten Mile ---it' me, Om

I actually agree with the oil/sulphur treatment in YOUR times. Henry, but now the oil is carcinogenic and destroys tissue, causing severe health problems.

I remember a post where a woman tried to heal her dog of mange by seeing the vet. As often, nothing brought on a cure. Then someone reported her when they saw the dog's condition which brought her to court and the result was she was forced to buy the useless vet treatments. It got up my heckles. As a rescue person I have had a few times to answer for ignorasmusses who would rather kill an animal than bring it back on the road to health. So, I think in your times this was a successful cure and I am glad.

I have purchased pure turpentine but cannot come up with where to buy sulphur powder. So meanwhile I will buy NEWSTOCK from feed store which guarantees freedom from mite.

I strongly go along with some old time remedies which are practised even now in Europe. As a next thing I want to mention re your treatment of "intruders" and what to do to them: The Lord gave us free will to do as we please, with ONE condition : face up to the consequences! The key word is KARMA. Namaste, Om And all the bet.

When I took milk thistle 20 years ago, it caused me to go into a very deep depression. I tried it on and off and had same reaction. Never knew why. Sometime in last 10 years, I have been able to take it without any problems. So these problems can happen with non turpenine stuff also.

Just an FYI in ref. to your comment about finding sulphur powder. I have been using the MSM (crystals) from local farm/feed store. (can't name brands/stoes on this site) Same type can be ordered on line manyonline pet or feed type websites. I researched this in the last year and it is as close to organic sulphur as you can get with out paying high priced of regular organic sulphur. This product is the crystal type product that looks very similar to like Epsom salts. I usually dissolve in water and use as a topical or consume depending on what the illness/wound treatment. The brand I get is 99% with no other fillers. In the past I was buying drug store capsules and breaking/empty to dissolve in water but it can have many fillers and sulphur can be picky and may be less effective if mixed with some chemicals. I think I paid about $12 for 2lbs just to give you and idea. Other organic sulphurs on the net sold for human consumption can cost you $50 and up. Works great and there are several brands/mfg so just look at the labels to make sure you get purest with out all the fillers. I think the crystals could be hand ground if you need powder.

Ole Robert Henry -

No insults ever intended, just sticking on you like a pit bull to ensure the correct message is given re: dipping dogs in used motor oil. What OM said about dipping your dog in used motor oil - she delivers the message in such an eloquent and effective manner.

And love ME like a cousin? Dang... If I could hug you through the computer screen, I would let this tree go right now and do it!

Love YOU like a flat lander that done moved up the mountain...

Just some more information on Turpentine. In a recent email to me, Mr Prakash, whose son has severe parasite, candida and bacterial infections, describes the progress his son has made while using turpentine.

The newer research confirms that it is the toxins from the parasites and candida that interfers with a child's brain development which causes various autism spectrum disorders. So it therefore becomes paramount to rid Mr Prakash's son of these parasites and candida in order for his autism problems to improve. Mr Prakash has only been using the turpentine protocol for just over a month. Here is how he describes turpentine's effects against parasites, candida and biofilms in a recent email:

"My son has been making a steady progress [on MMS] with 1-2 worms/biofim per week. But after using Turp, has expelled almost twice as often. His behavioral gains were also very drastic. Another parent who has not seen any biofilm/worm for 3 months has started seeing worms and biofilm after a week on Turpentine

...Turp is Turpentine. It's made from pure gum spirits of pine trees. It's very effective against Biofilm/Candida which is the missing link in our [Autism] recovery protocols. It was used as a home remedy in olden days."

I also know that many people seem to have unfounded fears about turpentine that seem to me to be unjustified. And here's why:

If you look up the MSDS for gum turpentine they will never have any toxicity research available on the LD50 levels for rats or rabbits. However, if you can find an MSDS for turpentine that occurs before 1999 (when turpentine was suddenly banned as a poison for no good reason) then you will see that it has an LD50 (median kill) level on rats and rabbits of over 5000 mgs/kg. Now compare this LD50 value against the LD50 for ordinary table salt (2600 mgs/kg) and you will see that turpentine is almost two times safer (as a poison) than ordinary table salt.

Furthermore, the LD50 for turpentine is 5000 mgs/kg which means that a man weighing 100 kgs would need to drink 500 mls -- or two glass fulls -- of turpentine to cause death.

I'm only recommending one teaspoon of turpentine a day for adults.

Bill, what is the MMS spoken of in this thread? And adults could safely take kerosene/turpentine at a teaspoon a day? Is there a maximum time and would you need to stop for awhile and start again? Is one better than the other as far as taking kerosene versus turpentine. Thank you

Hi Healthseeker...MMS is Miracle Mineral Solution or Chlorine Dioxide that was discovered by Jim Hubble. It is a pro-oxidant (rather than anti-oxidant) method of destroying pathogens. This means that it uses its free radical properties to kill pathogens. MMS is very similar to hydrogen peroxide in this respect. Unfortunately, if you are using any form of pro-oxidant protocol like MMS or hydrogen peroxide, this will always tend to deplete the anti-oxidants in your body. Generally, MMS reduces the body's anti-oxidants because pro-oxidants will always tend to react with any anti-oxidants which would tend to cancel out each other's beneficial effects.

This is why, when supplementing MMS and hydrogen peroxide, you must never take any anti-oxidants at the same time. And this is one of the reasons why MMS only tends to be effective in the body for less than an hour -- because the body naturally tends to get rid of free radicals quickly.

Turpentine is an anti-oxidant protocol that tends to kill many forms of pathogens. Turpentine therefore does not tend to deplete anti-oxidants and therefore lasts for a much longer amount of time in the body. In Mr Prakash's usage of turpentine/MMS for his young son, I also strongly advised that he should alternate the MMS and turpentine protocols on a week on, week off basis -- you should never use MMS and turpentine at he same time.

There seems to be little or no difference between kerosene and turpentine in terms of its content or healing qualities. I also believe that turpentine is the stronger verson of the two(higher iso-pinene content). I also tend to recommend turpentine because its easy -- just look for pure gum spirit of turpentine. There are many equivalents to kerosene -- mineral oils, paraffin, white spirit etc. This tends to be confusing. But turpentine is turpentine -- just look for turpentine made from the pure sap of pine trees with no additives.

Work up to the one teaspoon dose over a week or more. Start with a 1/4 teaspoon of turps. After you have been on this protocol for a month then take a rest for about a week from the protocol. And if you have serious candida issues then you will probably get Herx or die-off. If this happens then just take a day off from the protocol and do it like that.

Bill from San Fernando, as usual your postings always educational. Below is the link from UK on turpentine.

Due to my difficult experience with trying to help Asians and Africans as well as people from India and Pakistan with candida problems who cannot afford these nutrients, I have had to go herbal to help them which creates other difficulties. In the Philippines, the average wage is about 150 pesos per day or $3.60 per day. So, for a Filipino who has systemic candida to spend perhaps $16.00 or more on a small bottle of lugols iodine -- this is just not reasonable or possible. Similarly, for an average Filipino to be able to afford organic food is simply not possible or realistic because of the cost. As you can imagine, this has frustrated me somewhat in my efforts to help these people.

As a result of all these problems, I've been trying for some time to find another candida remedy that is easy to take, that kills candida quickly and is relatively cheap and easy to obtain.

And I think that I've found a cheaper nutrient (historically and widely used in the past) that does indeed kill candida rapidly in the intestines, blood and organs plus it does so much more. This substance is known by various synonyms: spirit oil of pines, spirit of gum turpentine or kerosene are some of the names.

There is not alot of research on these fractionated oils as supplemented oils but in the 1899 version of the Merck Manual the following has been recorded as oil of pine's supplemented benefits and are of interest:

gonorrhea

meningitis

lung disease

arthritis

abdominal problems

This list goes on and on.

Odd therefore, that in the 1990 Merck Manual and after more than 100 years of wide successful use, the above description for turpentine was radically changed to describe turpentine as very poisonous.

I guess that turpentine spirit, very much like the broadband pathogen-killing abilities of lugols iodine and hydrgogen peroxide, scared the medical research establishment with its apparently unassailable healing qualities.

Some of the constituents of turpentine:

Benefits of alpha-pinenes:

Lipophilic
Bactericidal
Fungicidal
Insecticidal
Pesticidal
Anticarcinogenic (cytotoxic on cancer cells)
Diuretic
Antioxidant
Immunostimulant
Anti-inflammatory
Anti-convulsive
Sedative
Anti-stress
Hypoglycaemic
Capable of expelling xenobiotics
Anticholinesterase activity

Benefits of beta-pinenes:

Lipophilic
Bactericidal
Fungicidal
Insecticidal
Acting against osteoclasts
Anticarcinogenic (cytotoxic on cancer cells)
Pesticidal
Antioxidant
Sedative

Oil of pines or turpentine also contains significant amounts d-limonene, cavicol, terpenes, acetic acid and butyric acid. I am not going to descrbe the benefits of these, not enough space, but -- from all the evidence and testimonials that I've read, it appears that turpentine or kerosene kills candida very rapidly in the intestines and in the blood/organs. Other effects -- it cures arthritis because oil of pines also kills mycoplasma and is also anti-cancer. It is a wonderful anti-inflammatory and a safe pain killer. In short, spirit of gum turpentine appears to be strongly anti-candida, anti-cancer, anti-mycoplasma, antibacterial, antifungal, antivirus and anti-parasitic. With the possible exceptions of iodine and hydrogen peroxide I really don't know of any other single nutrient that has these broadband anti-pathogen killing effects. It simply doesn't get better than that. No wonder then that the 1990 Merck Manual decided to trash it -- how could their drugs compete with that!!

You can read all about the evidence and testimonials here:

http://xa.yimg.com/kq/groups/11136827/2098715122/name/Turpentine-The_Candida_Cleaner -Dr. Daniels.pdf

http://www.health-science-spirit.com/ultimatecleanse.html

http://www.rethinkingcancer.org/resources/magazine-articles/7_9-10/kerosene.php

I must admit that I haven't tried distilled oil of pines yet, due to the difficulties of getting the properly distilled oil, but I fully intend to take it for about four weeks or so (as recommended by Dr Daniels as the ultimate cleanse and blood purifier ) to see and understand its effects. For this reason, I hesitate to actually recommend it here as a cure for candida or anything else yet.

In respect of all the above on the health properties of turpentine or kerosene, I therefore have a request to everyone reading this.

Could you please ask your grandparents -- grandfathers or grandmothers -- whether their parents or granparents ever used oil of pines, turpentine or kerosene as a regular body cleanser or healer of diseases etc.? And could you report anything you find out back here on EC? Turpentine/Kerosene was supplemented widely in America and Europe before the 1900s. I'm really wanting to know dosages and effects on people who have regularly used turpentine or kerosene for healing specific diseases.

I will also be obtaining some turpentine or spirits of gum turpentine(hopefully with a low boiling point of 100 - 150 degrees C) to test out internally on myself soon and will report back its effects, good or bad, when I can.

Many thanks.

Hi Bill, I just want to thank you for your posts. This one is amazing! I am always learning from what you have to pass on. It's also always interesting to see the information which is withheld from the masses to prevent self-help in our healthcare. This is why it is so important to have a forum such as Earth Clinic to get the information out there so we, the people, can make an educated decision regarding our path we would like to pursue for ourselves.

Again, thank you always for your very informative and educational posts! May you be blessed always, Lisa

Bill--- you asked about turpentine. My Great - Grandmother once described in her memoir that her mother (Norwegian Immigrant) used it to treat them for head lice. Nits were removed. The hair was combed with a comb dipped in turpentine scrapung the scalp a bit then braided.

She also discussed a mixture of pitch and turpentine that was always kept near the stove (to stay soft) This was used for cuts and scrapes.

My great grandmother's younger sister was struck in the face with a double bladed axe and her nose was hanging by skin. My great grandmother claimed her mother put the nose back in place and covered the affected area liberally with the pitch mixture. I doubted this story as a child. Once when my great great aunt was visiting I asked to see her nose... I this was over 80 years later... My great great aunt bore only a tiny white line all around her nose!

Some more of my own thoughts on supplementing turpentine or kerosene.

Bye the way, paraffin is also a similar form or synonym for kerosene but I have avoided using it because of the pink and blue parrafin forms used in UK and Australia respectively. These coloured forms are definitely not healthy to ingest due to the additives which are used to colour them. There is also paraffin oil which is used medicinally for constipation in UK but this form does not have the same notable chemical benefits of supplementing turpentine.

Whenever a plant is damaged by an act of God or by animals, fungus, bacteria etc, the plant has its own immune system which produces a group of substances that both defend the injury against pathogen invasion and heal the damaged area. This group of chemicals that are secreted by plants has been given a name -- salvestrols. Resveratrol is a typical example of a salvestrol. If you like, salvestrols are equivalent to our own antibodies.

Production of pine resin is also a response to injury for a pine tree and this resin contains a whole host of salvestrols to defend the plant against further damaging pathogen attack and to help seal the injury.

There appears to be two significant areas of beneficial activity in how turpentine actually works in our bodies. The first area is the intestines -- where gum of turpentine's strongly anti-pathogenic actvities come into play. Secondly is the major and unparalleled blood purifying activity that these oils seem to have once they get into the blood. Therefore and concerning this, Walter Last advises that small amounts of the thinner oil forms -- the ones with lower boiling points of between 100 and 150 degrees C -- will be absorbed easily through the stomach with their main area of action being in the blood. As such, we have the thicker turpentine distilled oil forms -- those which have their boiling points up to 200 degrees C, which have more action in the intestines because these are not so easily absorbed into the blood from the stomach. So what would be most advantageous is to take a turpentine form that is equally beneficial to the intestines and blood. To this end and to get the thinner turpentine forms(with a lower B P) of turpentine into the intestines, Walter Last suggests adding a second thicker oil -- say oil of paraffin or castor oil -- to ensure that the turpentine is carried directly into the intestines from the stomach. Dr Jennifer Daniels advises taking the lower boiling point or thinner form with sugar in order to ensure that at least some of the turpentine gets into the intestines. The low boilling point forms seem to be the best ones to supplement because many of the aromatics, such as aldehydes, which are not good for the body, have already been removed by distilled separation.

Hi Bill, I read your comment about kerosine and remembered the cab driver who picked us from the airport last week on our return from India. Noticing our cold and coughs, he related a story of his grandmother, who had come to the US from East Europe: she once cured him of a severe bout of cough by making him drink milk with a few drops of kerosine in it. I listened to this story in disbelief, although I didn't let on, since he was such a dear, polite man. Kerosine, when I was growing in India, was used as a fuel for stoves in the kitchen. In fact, those tragic 'dowry deaths' where North Indian brides are burnt by being set on fire use kerosine! The cab driver, who said he was in his seventies, says he never suffered from such severe cough again. Reading your information now, I am beginning to revise my opinion. Thanks!

RE: KEROSENE CURE To begin with I was born (1948) in a remote little town in the Philippines where tap water and electricity was too expensive. At night we used kerosene lamp, the simplest method we used by using a pepsi bottle with the holed cap for the cotton wick, the used kerosene and mom's home made coconut oil mix was used whenever we kids got cold/cough. Before bedtime, she rubbed on our throat, chest and back, then covered our body with flannel, throat wrapped with hankerchief to keep warm and off to bed.. The next morning or after a couple of mornings.. Cold/cough gone. Until my mom was in her eighties.. she was using this mixture to cure her cold/cough. She never take OTC cough syrups.

Their life style was very simple/close to nature.. Whole life drinking spring water, cooking in clay pots using wood for fire, never used stainless or aluminum pans/ pots, for frying they used an iron wok which is seldom used since cooking oil is expensive. Anothe habit was weekly swim in the sea, planted their own veggies. My parents did not know what is processed/fast food.The different life style between my mom and her sister(she lived in manila most of her life) resulted to breast cancer death while my mom died of traffic accident at the age of 80 with no illness while my father who drunk local coconut wine in his youth died of kidney failure at the age of 84.

I wish I could have a life like my parents which is impossible now that I am living in dubai a place where almost nothing is natural.

keep up the good work Bill.. God Bless Us.

First, thanks to Louwrence from Rustenburg for your reply to my post (i almost overlooked it) w/ the Walter Last link to this seemingly great anti-pathogen cure-all. Now thanks to Bill for his interest in the possibilities of these substances as medicine.

My recent results from using other natural anti-pathogens like Colloidal Silver and MMS have been mixed, but I never really sustained any kind of therapeutic level or doses. One big reason for my lack of commitment is the fact that both these agents are known reducing agents of not only bad pathogens but also good endogenous Glutathione enzymes. With an already damaged Glutathione production problem just kinda leaves me more than a little discouraged on these.

So, the Turpentine or Kerosene agents seem very promising except the administration. Question: have not any other routes of administration been tried as it first seems somewhat disgusting drinking these compounds, and also absorption problems?

Hi Suzy... Much thanks and God Bless you for your speedy response to my request. It seems that there is no end to the benefits of turps and kerosene oils.

Some more info on my meditations on the usefulness of Turps and Kerosene distillates. I'm sure many here would be horrified at me saying or even admitting that these oils are also used as paint thinners and varnish removers.

But that's the whole point isn't it? -- That is one of the biggest benefits of these oils. To illustrate this I'll just tell a true story. I read a magazine article, a long time ago, where a very famous gastro-intestinal surgeon was being interviewed. The interviewer asked all the usual questions -- but I really became interested when the surgeon said outright that, in all his 35 years as a gastro surgeon -- and during all this time -- he admitted that he had never ever seen what he would describe as a healthy pink inner intestines. Instead, he described most of the inner surface of the intestines he had seen "as having a smooth dark grey appearance, as if the villi surfaces had been varnished...". When asked what had caused this dark grey varnished look by the interviewer, the emminent gastro shot back without any hestation at all -- "Unquestionably it was due to excess vegetable oils in the diet."

I've aleady said that Turpentine and Kerosene are used as capable solvents to get rid of and dissolve varnish -- so the benefits of these oils wrt removing the intestine's inner varnish (caused by these chemically processed, oxidized vegetable oils) should be more than clear now. As well, the health benefits for both your intestines and your nutritional pathways arising from this should also be fairly obvious.

Hi Bill, I want to say you are simply "GREAT". I appreciate, the pains you take to find the information and put it on this site. It is a treat to read your and Ted's articles/reports. I have a suggestion, on this site there should be way by which one could get on to the page where one can read whatever Ted and you have so far written on this site. Because it is a pleasure to read, it gives lot of knowledge. I try to pass on and help people who are ignorent about what good alternate methods can do to their health. God Bless You. Baldev

To Bill or anyone in the Philippines: I have a friend that is headed to the Philippines tomorrow, for a few weeks. Is there anywhere there he can get this pine spirit oil? Rather amusing about the Merck documentation, ha. Also, to take the chance to get things, what else should I send him back with? I seem to remember hearing of different effective things that aren't costly there, that are hard/impossibe to get in the US, but they are scattered all throughout EC website. Thanks for whatever you can suggest.

Hi CityGirl32... The right forms of Turpentine or Kerosene for supplementation are described in an article by Walter Last shown here:

http://www.health-science-spirit.com/kero.htm

You should also easily be able to buy some of these forms of turps or kerosene -- if not all of them -- quite easily within the US or from the internet.

I would also not advise that your friend brings turpentine back to the US from the Philippines in their luggage because this might cause her some considerable trouble -- turpentine is a flammable solvent and is definitely not allowed on planes now and the airport checks on people coming into America are also fairly rigorous now. So perhaps better and less trouble all round just to order this off the internet or buy within America itself if you can.

Also my warm thanks to Lucena, Suzy, Trina -- and any others that I've missed out-- for posting some wonderful info on the use of Turpentine as a healer.

Among the top culprits of "bad" vegetable oils is: Trans Fatty Acids, Hydrogenated Veg. Oil like margarine, and V. Oils that have gone rancid. I use very little V. Oil and hardly ever cook with it, but I do add one cap 250mg BHT, one 8,000 iu Vit-A, and one 400 iu mixed natural tocopherols to 1 bottle mixed Veg oil. I supplement Fish Oil softgels as well as Flax Seed Oil softgels and sometimes either Borage or Evening Primrose Oil.

And of course we now have the GMO's to contend with.

Hey Bill,

Thanks for your great research, it's really helped me a lot. I managed to find the right Turpentine with a boiling point of 165 degrees C. Does this mean it will be absorbed into the blood from the stomach; As Turpentine with lower boiling points do (i.e., between 100?C and 150?C) or will it have more action the intestines as you mentioned about Turpentine with boiling points up to 200?C ? Have you found a Turpentine with a boiling point in the lower range? Sorry. I know I'm showing up late to the party.

Hi Kevin... There are several ways to supplement turpentine. I either supplement a teaspoon of turpentine with a teaspoon of either molasses or raw honey, mix them in my mouth, then down it with some water. You can also take the turpentine with sugar. Or I just take the teaspoon of turpentine with just some water.

If you have candida or intestinal problems then perhaps it is better to take the turpentine with sugar, molasses or honey just before meals. Then less turpentine gets absorbed directly into the blood from the stomach and most of the turps gets carried by the food into the intestines where it is most needed to get rid of the candida.

Taking the turpentine or kerosene with water or milk on an empty stomach, where it is more directly absorbed into the blood, is mainly the way that people in eastern Europe take this remedy. This method -- which acts to purify the blood -- seems to be very effective against disease outside the intestines like many and varous cancers, tuberculosis, leukemia, diabetes, sepsis etc. See this link.

As to your question, I've been using pine oil(essential oil) derived from Scots Pine (Pinus sylvestris) for the last six months. I have not been able to find any respectable turpentine or kerosene in the Philippines yet. However, Walter Last recommends several types and brands of turpentine or kerosene that can be used here in this article.

I read with interesting article post by Bill regarding Turpentine. It made me think about the connection to Limonene, which is extracted from orange peel and contains turpentine. It is also used as an industrial cleaner. I use it for digestive issues and mucus problems. I wounded whether it help by killing fungus and parasites. Does anyone know? My best wishers to everyone.

Hi Bill,

When you refer kerosene for turpentine. It reminds me of the hydrocarbon liquid fuel distilled from Petroleum. Of course both are different. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kerosene. Kerosene is used as fuel for home cooking in rural regions of india and by the lower income people. Thanks

Hi Christine... Turpentine or distilled pine oil contains many terpenes -- of which limonene is just one. Pine oil usually contains about 0. 5% - 2% limonene content. The major constituents of pine oil are alpha- and beta-pinenes(also terpenes). The many health characteristics and benefits of the pinene content of pine oil are defined in this link.

The most interesting aspect of its healing properties is that turpentine is anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, anti-mycolasma, anti-viral and anti-parasitic. As well, these pinenes remove candida and bacterial biofilms quickly due to its solvent properties as a paint stripper. Pinenes can also expel xenobiotics -- they act to remove poisons and foreign drugs from the body.

I also must relate an interesting story and side-effect concerning my own use of pine oil. About six or seven months ago, just before starting to use and road-test the pine oil, I had a tooth capped because my gums had receded and the tooth roots were exposed. After I had this done, about a week later, the tooth roots became well infected and started to ache and it just got worse and worse. This tooth also became very loose and wobbly and I thought that I would eventually have to have the tooth pulled. I certainly did not want to loose this back tooth.

Then I started my experiment with supplementing about 8 - 12 drops of pine oil every day with a teaspoon of molasses or raw honey or with a glass of water.

After about a month into this protocol I noticed that the tooth pain or infection had gone away completely. The tooth and roots had also firmed up considerably.

So, as a result of this discovery and every night before bed, I would just put two drops of turpentine on my finger, wipe it on my tongue and spread it around my mouth with my tongue. I would not drink any water -- I would just leave the drops of pine oil in my mouth overnight. This was the last thing I did before my head hit the pillow.

First thing in the morning when I woke up, I noticed that my saliva or spit was thin and not sour, thick and mucusy. Also and amazingly -- no bad breath. This was all evidence to me that pine oil was successful and useful at killing bad bacteria in the mouth.

By putting just two drops on the tongue before sleep and keeping it in the mouth overnight, this will also have other minor benefits. During the night, the saliva and pine oil will naturally travel down the esophagus to the stomach -- effectively and gently disinfecting these regions overnight. As well and as you sleep, the pine oil vapour would also travel to the nose and lungs -- also helping to kill pathogens in these regions.

I can now crunch hard seeds and nuts with my once-infected back tooth. I also believe that taking two drops of pine oil every night helps to remove biofilms on the teeth, kills plaque bacteria and prevents gingivitis, thus improving and healing both the gums and teeth. I was also quite surprised but particularly pleased that pine oil successfully and completely cured both the infected tooth and the pain.

For myself, I will continue to use pine oil in this simple manner as a regular nightly protocol to help keep my teeth and gums healthy.

Strange as it seems, suddenly I remember way back us kids in kindergarten in Europe. Whenever a child had cough or respiratory trouble, the nuns that ran the kindergarten gave us a sugar cube drenched with a black substance that did taste quite ok, perhaps with a faint resemblance to liquorice but not quite..

I remember the taste and was wondering what it might have been. Well, on reading Walter Last and other posts I know it was the good old stuff that did the trick. No wonder big pharma is trying to demonize it! Om

Kerosine for internal use must be purified. In Russia people use Todicamp (kerosine with green hull walnut) but you have to be very careful when choosing manufacturer. The best one comes from the inventor's son Andrey Todica.

Inhaling Turpentine Vapors   1  0   

Posted by Dlangdado (Cookeville Tn) on 12/10/2013

I've got two aunts in their 80's and take no prescription medicine and are fairly active for the age. They swear by inhaling turpentine esp in the winter to prevent flu. They also take a few drops on their tongue from time to time. They have got some old bottles of turpentine and it reads rectified and it gives the dosage that can be taken. Has anyone else heard of inhaling the vapors to prevent any illness?

To Bill of the Philipines from Om

Bill, would you be so good and help me with the above.

I bought "pure turpentine" for self administration. I also read up extensively but am still confused. Then there is lamp oil. And the warning on the back of the products! I want to start as soon as possible as my liver is making trouble. Am vegan. Vegetarian most of my adult life. Never alcohol or drugs. No pharmaceuticals except a brief spell with insulin which I have ditched. Minimal amount of sugar, rather honey. Veggies and nuts, some fruits. Some B vits, Zeolite and lots of Amla with turmeric. Also hemp seeds and green drinks.

The one I bought here in Canada says Bio-Option, pure turpentine. Danger. Or should it be kerosene?

Please let me know you opinion. Thanks, Namaste, Om

[YEA]  I was told of an old concoction used for muscle and joint pain many years ago. It is made by combining two ounces of turpentine, two ounces of apple cider vinegar and one egg in a blender. Simply blend until it is creamy looking and use as a topical liniment. It does not need to be refrigerated, keeps for months when stored in a glass jar with lid and is very effective.

Be careful turpentine sold at the supermarket isnt real turpentine, its slightly more volatile than kerosene made by the oil industry. Real turpentine comes from pine trees and is a bit of a mission to make.

Yes, we make and sell them worldwide. I cannot place the link to our website but if you will Google - turpentine bath tonic you will find it first in search results. We almost finished the video about the procedure which will be on Youtube and just need to put titers in English language version.

It is quite difficult to make yellow tonic but more easy to make the white one.

Ingredients of yellow tonic - vegetable turpentine -750ml, castor oil-300ml, oleic acid-200ml, caustic soda-20g and water -200ml. But you cannot just mix it, it a special technology to make the tonic.

Ingredients of white tonic - vegetable turpentine -500ml, water -550ml, baby soap -30g, salicylic acid -3g, camphor spirith -20g. Again, it a special technology to make this tonic.

Dear Bill,

Thank you for your informative posts on turpentine. I am wondering if you think t would be helpful to apply a few drops of turpentine to nail fungus once or twice a day? I have infected toes and have been soaking them in a bleach solution once or twice a week. It appears to help, but if I go on a business trip and my feet are encased in shoes for a number of hours on a plane, the fungus seems worsen. Thank you.

[YEA]  OMIGOSH. What a miracle this is. Just the fact that this turpentine treatment found me is pretty mind-blowing. I've been struggling with a intense parasite infestation since I lived in Honduras more than 25 years ago. Done and done and done everything I could find.

Appreciate all the instructions and suggestions I found here…as usual, a very informed group.

Day Five: I slept soundly for 8 uninterrupted hours! Woke refreshed. Have had clean energy without caffeine all day. No post lunch nap attack.

Day 3 I got a little over confident since I was doing so well…took a full tsp of turpentine with oj in the morning. Oops. Massive herx.

The next morning I came out of it by taking sodium ascorbate and some IP-6. Have felt great since.

Used molasses and coconut oil for a carrier.

I'll report my progress next week. Amazing turn around in only 5 days. Who knew a 7 buck can of turpentine could restore your health? My Diamond G just arrived in today's mail. Switching to that for internal.

Thanks all very much.

Hi Mary...In my own continued use of turpentine, in all the research and articles I've seen and read, in the autism group that are also using the turpentine protocol, I have never come across those symptoms that you describe when supplementing turpentine.

I have no idea what turpentine dose you are taking so here are some reminders and caveats:

* You should only ever take Turpentine at a maximum frequency of twice a week. The adult dose is 1 teaspoon. Work up to the one teaspoon dose slowly.

* You should also take castor oil with the turps dose. The castor oil dose can vary from 1 tablespoon(mild laxative) to 4 tablespoons(strong laxative). You can mix in a little honey or BSM for taste.

* Under no circumstances should you be taking turpentine continually on a daily basis for extended periods. For serious problems, the maximum number of consecutive days allowed for supplementing turps is 7 days only.

Dr Jennifer Daniels does report that in one case she had a woman who initially ignored her advice and who took too high a dose of turpentine to start with and she had black areas on her skin andface as a result due to excessive detox through the skin. These black areas all disappeared when she reduced her dose. Dr Daniels article is here.

Thank you Bill: you could be right and maybe I took too much. I have since stopped and will be very methodical when I resume. I got mine at home Depot which is where Tony Pantelleresco gets his. He is the Healing With Turpentine Man on You Tube (Canada). Oddly enough I had this same reaction to a product formulated to "Solvent Remove", so somehow I believe this is related to my liver, as the product was full of sulfer type amino acids like NAC, Methionine etc. When I asked my naturopath what happened he had no answer.

Next time I try I will have the Diamond G Forest Products one.

I will report on my progress.

Thank you so much for your time Bill. I always like reading your posts and learn sooo much.

Hi Conner...Canada Turpentine or Canada Balsam(Terebinthina Canadensis) is well known in old western medical pharmacopia and is derived from the fir tree. See this description. I prefer to use the pure gum spirit of turpentine from the pine tree.

It seems, from all your symptoms, that you probably do have candida problems. The muscle spasms you are having are probably due to a lack of magnesium and/or a lack of potassium in your diet. To confirm whether you have candida for yourself(since doctors are so hopeless at accurately diagnosing candida problems), you should take this free questionnaire online(which is based on Dr William Crook's questionnaire for diagnosing andconfirming candida):

Candida Questionnaire

You also stand a good chance of having low thyroid or hypothyroid condition due to the effects of candida waste toxins in the blood. So your immune system will also probably be impaired.

Since you live in UK, I would simply use the Myland's brand of pure gum turpentine which is made in UK. Just do a google search on "Myland's Turpentine" to find UK vendors.

You can also use Kerosene to help get rd of candida:

Kerosene: The Universal Healer

If you do have systemic candida, I've posted my full protocol here on EC. See this link. I've also written a book which is sold on EC and amazon.com that goes into much more detail about candida as a pathogen and also provides and describes a more focused multi-protocol to get rid of this disease. The point I'm making here is that systemic candida can be extremely hard to defeat. So taking just one thing against serious candida issues usually will not cure this problem -- the candida either never goes away completely or it just keeps comes back. That's why you really need to follow a more focused multi-nutrient protocol to get rid of this disease. You will need to use other candida killers such as lugol's iodine, borax, alkalizing etc as well as following a special diet with lifestyle changes for a successful outcome.

[YEA]  I tried the shot glass of gum spirits in the tub. Soaked for about 20 minutes, felt good. Came out, my skin is so soft it's unbelievable. Will continue at least once a week in a bath. Also started to take internally. No problems, had some slight burning around the heart area. My doctor told me one of my values were a little thick, but that was "normal" for someone "my age, 55". (Didn't like that) Anyway, thinking the gum spirits is working on the area that needs fixing. Will continue with 1/2 teaspoon and build up. Will see how it goes.

Yes, there was a tingly feeling on the inner thigh area every time I bathe, but it's not a biggy. Definitely, alleviates my lower back pain and relaxes my whole body, no doubt. Feeling very clean and removes all the crap out of my skin. Will continue doing it...

However, every time I bathe, after a couple of hours, I got flaky scalp. Not sure if it's too strong for the scalp or my head develops the flakes/dandruff fighting the bacteria/crap. Well, I was hoping that turps bath will heal my dandruff issue instead of getting more… Any other thoughts from people who has same issue? Thanks Bill for this helpful information.

It is VERY important to use only special tonics on a base of vegetable turpentine (not a turpentine itself). These tonics were invented by Russian doctor Zalmanov over 60 years ago and the method is very popular in Russia and Europe.

They are two types of tonics - white and yellow. The white one increases blood pressure and the yellow one decreases. And also you must follow the procedure and schemes.

Do search Google for turpentine bath procedure or turpentine bath tonic.

[WARNING!]  Much too strong a reaction. Very unpleasant. If used, only use a very small amount. Two thirds of a shotglass produced a very itching, tingling and burning reaction on my legs. I used coconut oil to calm them down. I cannot recommend this based on my unpleasant reaction.

You had this reaction because of the incorrect way of using turpentine for bath. It is not soluble in water so you must use a special emulsion in a gum turpentine base.

Also it it a special procedure not just laying in water with turpentine.

I can't have a bath where I live because everyone prefers showers in hot tropical countries like the Philippines. So I don't have a bath in my house.

So how I do it is to have a shower and just mix some drops of turps in with the soap in my hands and then wash my body down like that. The turps becomes emulsified by the soap into tiny droplets when you do this and it mixes in more thoroughly with the water and soap so it spreads better over the skin.

But just pouring a shot glass into a bath is also not really recommended. Better to add ordinary pine oil bubble bath into the bath first -- or add some soap to the bath water -- that will emulsify the turps into tiny droplets that will actually help to spread the turps around in the bathwater more thoroughly.

If you don't use the soap, the turps just tends to sit and tends to concentrate on the top of the water anyway because it is so insoluble in water. So it doesn't really spread down into the bath water where you want it to be.

In older times, the doctors regularly advised turpentine/water enemas. But they would always advise that you mix the turps and water with a little bit of soap because it helps to emulsify and spread the turps into the water as tiny droplets, making the enema much more effective. Same principle for taking a turps bath.

No, taking shower with a mixture of soap and few drops of gum turpentine is not the same as taking a turpentine bath.

The volume of water in a bath works as vacuum cleaner helping to clean the body through your skin. After having a turpentine bath you must have a rest about 1 hour in warm bed. This is a procedure protocol.

You must use only special tonics on a base of vegetable turpentine (not a turpentine itself). These tonics were invented by Russian doctor Zalmanov over 60 years ago and very popular in Russia and Europe.

[YEA]  5 years ago, I was in so much pain and as soon as I started coffee enema, pain was gone, but it was very difficult to increase my natural energy. I got pure gum spirit of turpentine. I put about 100 ml in a bath. Please start with a shot glass. It can get very hot. Turpentine is very very potent. I felt all my cells and muscles start pumping like earthquake. I mean that was strong pumping. even after coming out of the bathtub my body cells were pumping one more hours.. I think this is much stronger than getting a strong body massage.

I did this 2 days in a row and I have this tremendous eneregy that I had not felt in my entire life.

A few things that I added DMSO, Auarium salt (superior salt I can't complement enough) Magnesium chlrorite, methylene blue, on top of turpentine. First day I only used turpentine and the second day I added them. I felt much less discomfort with the second day.

Please be cautious of the turpentine amount. Very very potent. Because it was my first try I got scared whether I used too much or not. It turned out I was fine.

I felt so great afterwards. I also did this. I had pine essential oil. And I used several drops for half liter of water and aquarium salt and I did enema. Great. This is a very mild solution. Absolutely great. There is some magic power in pine oil. Oh, just only 2 days after, my flat belly is even more flater and smaller waist line. I mean I don't understand why every woman is not having a turpentine bath.

One more thing. Be prepared to sweat. Because it will make you! I love love love turpentine bath. and it is so cheap. a quart is less than 7 dollars from home depot. Pine essential oil is a little more. And this quart of turpentine includes potent, very potent healing power.

I mean it makes sense. Illness is so widespeared. If you were God, wouldn't you also make ths cure accessible everywhere? such things like pine trees?

From my experience the cure is not from rare or expensive sources. which is a very good news for humanity.

Hello Bill, I've seen many of your posts about turpentine. I am considering taking it with regard to multiple pain issues.

Hi Denise...Supplementing Turpentine has the effect of cleansing the bowels and purifying the blood. I have never read any research where turpentine has ever caused damage to nerves. The neuropathy problem that you mention is usually normally caused by the Hepatitis C virus.

The symptoms you might experience are a wooziness and drowsiness when you take too much turpentine because turpentine also has a sedative effect. Turpentine also can have a laxative effect, but I have only ever experienced a slight loosening of the stools when I took 2 tspns of turpentine in one go(double the normal dose). And if there is any ongoing disease in the blood or bowels, such as Hepatitis C, then you may well get a Herx or die-off reaction as well.

You can also take turpentine baths if you wish. Add one or two small shot glasses of turpentine into the bath and stay in the bath for about 1/2 hour. The iso-penenes in turpentine, the main beneficial ingredients, are also easily absorbed through the skin.

For interests sake, and to allay any fears, medical doctors commonly used and recommended internal teaspoon dosages of turpentine in the past.

Here are some examples of older turpentine usage and dosages:

The Physiomedical Dispensatory 1869 - Turpentine Usage

The US Dispensatory 1918 - Turpentine Properties

British Pharmaceutical Codex -- Turpentine

Hi Denise...Generally, nueropathy problems are fairly commonplace with Hepatitis C patients. This is called Cryoglobulinemia and results from the immune system cryoglubulins "globbing" in the blood vessels and causing inflammation affecting the nerves.

Regarding your more recent post, it is unfortunate that you have had such a reaction to the turpentine from taking such small drop dosages. Turpentine also has mild diuretic action, which means that it expels water and minerals from the body. Normally this does not cause problems(from my own experience), but if your main electrolytes(calcium, magnesium, potassium, sodium) are out of balance then cramping in the body will occur. Lack of magnesium and/or potassium in the body are favourites for causing cramp.

Turpentine is also a wide-action pathogen killer. When pathogens are killed in high numbers then poisons will be released from the destroyed pathogens that can also give added or increased symptoms which can be severe. This is called the Herx effect. Furthermore, if your liver is weak or insufficient and has difficulty clearing these poisons then this may also give other added symptoms.

I must also add that turpentine acts to expel xenobiotics -- it will remove any synthetic drug or poison which the body does not recognize. This would also put a strain on the liver. I have no idea whether you are taking synthetic ribovarin or interferon, but turpentine may well act to also expel them from the body. So, if you are also taking these drugs, then you should not be taking the turpentine.

Perhaps you should investigate Oscar's BHT Remedy or Ted's Lysine, Threonine and Vitamin C remedies for Hepatitis C. These options should not generally give you such severe problems.

Bill, you really got me confused now. I'm taking 2 prescription drugs while on my anti-candida protocol with the turpentine. Are you now saying that people on drugs/xenobiotics shouldn't be taking turpentine? Maybe I'm not full getting what you're saying.

Please clear this up for me. If this is the case, then no wonder my detox symptoms were going so bad on me. Maybe I'm thinking wrong though! Thanks!

I had a test for cryogobulins 2 months ago and everything was fine according to my PCP...He said I have no inflamation...I take 900 mgs magnesium malate a day and many other supplements..The brand name is Homco gum turpentine....I am currently taking a gram of Vit c an hour to flush out the turp. I take NO drugs at all. I read on the web that the herx effect is bogus...It was made up by dr'd to cover themselves when a person gets a reaction to a drug they prescribes...Google it and see...Also I am not a diabetic...I got hep-c from a car accident in 1969 and had a blood transfusion of one unit..Everything was fine until they discovered I had hep-c in 2003 and they talked me into a liver biopsy..I later found out that my enzymes were 35 and 41..Then after the biopsy my enzymes shot up to mid 300 range...and the trouble began......Someone told me "They woke up the virus."

Forgot...I'm also taking 1000 mgs of lysine five hours in a row every day to get back to where I was. NO ibuprophen as it raises my enzymes...Even 200 mgs will raise them...Ted's remedy..

Hi Tony....Turpentine/Kerosene both act as a diuretic and they expel xenobiotics. They generally function to cleanse the intestines and purify the blood.

Here are some testimonials from Eastern Europe on the use of Kerosene and what it helps to cure (including high blood pressure):

Kerosene Testimonials

Contra-indications between natural nutrients and drugs is always a problem. But whereas natural remedies tend to treat the core reasons for disease, drugs for chronic diseases are generally always palliative -- they only ever treat the symptoms.

What I'm saying here is that although these medical drugs might make you feel better, they do not treat the core reasons for you problems -- especially for heart disease and depression. So, if you continue to use these drugs, then further down the timeline these conditions are bound to get worse(because drugs do not treat the core reason -- they do not cure) and you will have to buy more and more drugs which fits the business profit model of the drugs companies perfectly.

In terms of drugs for serious chronic diseases, since a cure is generally out of the picture, we are not really patients -- we are just consumers.

Thanks Bill for the explanation. I thought you were originally saying that turpentine wasn't supposed to be taken at all with drugs. I already understood how bad drugs are for the body & they don't provide a cure. My main concern was mixing the turpentine with drugs & thinking it would create a possible fatal reaction. Thanks & God Bless!

I was wondering if anyone might be able to tell me why everytime I try to take a teaspoon of turp mixed with honey or oil I start to get a burning sensation when I go to pee and feel like I need to go pee and can.t go for hours; sometimes it is unbearable

Hi Josh1875...A burning sensation when peeing indicates acid blood. Turpentine also acts as a diuretic -- it clears excess water(and minerals) from the blood. I never have a burning sensation when peeing after I take Turpentine. So the answer to this problem is simply to alkalize the blood by taking either the sodium bicarbonate(baking soda) with water remedy or by taking the ACV, bicarbonate and water remedy as shown here on EC. This should help to reduce the burning.

Being unable to pee is also indicative of either an infection in the bladder or prostatitis so I would get your bladder checked to be safe. Nutrients that will help with bladder infections are cranberry juice and/or D-Mannose. Larger dose Lugol's iodine (at least 8 drops or 50 mgs a day in split doses) will help both against bladder infections and help against prostatitis.

Research evidence has shown that Iodine prevents and reduces cysts in fibrocystic breast disease, uterine fibroid and prostate cyst formation (prostatitis). See this research.
