Turpentine.

Turpentine has been used as a natural remedy for a variety of health problems for generations! Great-grandmothers used turpentine for a yearly "cleansing" for every member of the family or for her rheumatism and nagging cough. While the thought of using paintbrush cleaner sounds harsh and foolish, turpentine could be classified as an herbal remedy.

Herbal remedies are medicines made from plants, and that is just what true turpentine is! Turpentine is made by distilling pine resin from pine trees. Many essential oils are made by distilling plant material into a concentrated natural medicine.

What Health Conditions Can Be Treated with Turpentine?

Parasites

Turpentine is a tried and true folk remedy for parasites. Long ago farmers and even school nurses gave turpentine as a matter of course to children twice a year to eliminate parasites like pinworms. The easiest way to do this is to put a few drops of turpentine on a sugar cube. This tastes like pine candy and is simple for children and adults alike to take.

Fungus and Candida

Turpentine is sometimes used in anti-candida protocols. Bill Thompson's protocol can be found here.

Turpentine is an inexpensive remedy for nail fungus. One drop can be massaged into affected nails twice a day. This treatment will take some time, especially with toenails, but all remedies tend to take a while to completely remedy nail fungus.

Autism

Turpentine has been part of protocols used for autistic children. Heavy metals and candida are common problems among autistic children, making turpentine a popular remedy. However, it is wise to seek the guidance of a qualified health practitioner for a child with autism or other significant health issues before considering turpentine.

Turpentine overdose in children may be rare but has occurred. 1

Head Lice

Lice have been a problem among school children since the advent of schools! Over-the-counter remedies and prescriptions for lice can be dangerous, especially if they need to be used repeatedly. Resistance to these over-the-counter treatments has increased in recent years as well. Turpentine can be mixed with coconut oil as a safer and more effective alternative.

Use no more than 1 part turpentine to 10 parts of coconut oil (or olive oil or mayonnaise.) Carefully massage into the scalp and spread the oil down over the hair. Cover with plastic wrap and then a towel for an hour. Remove towel and wrap. Wash oils out of hair. Repeat this process in one week, using a nit comb to remove any leftover nits in the meanwhile.

Arthritis and Gout

Massage oil can be made with turpentine to massage into pained joints. Because castor oil is also good for arthritis, it is a good medium to be mixed with turpentine. Use 1 part turpentine and 3 parts castor oil, olive oil, or coconut oil. Do not use this oil on sensitive skin, broken skin, or mucous membranes.

Cold and Flu Viruses

There are a variety of ways to use turpentine to treat cold and flu viruses.

  • Sore Throat - Swab the back of the throat with turpentine. Follow with some honey to mask the taste if desired.
  • Sinuses - Mix together 5 drops turpentine to 1 tablespoon olive oil. Drop several drops into each nostril to deliver turpentine to the nasal passages to relieve congestion and infection.
  • Cough - Use the same mixture as for sinuses and massage into the back and/or chest to relieve a cough. 1-3 drops of turpentine can be used on a sugar cube and taken internally instead.
  • Inhalation - Another old-time remedy for cold viruses is simply to inhale the vapors of turpentine. This delivers the turpentine vapors into the lungs, throat and nasal passages.

Urinary Tract Infection

Turpentine is sometimes used to treat bladder infections. 1/4 teaspoon turpentine is added to a spoonful of sugar (or honey) and taken once.

Turpentine Dosages

Dosages of turpentine range from a drop to a teaspoon. Always start with less, increase slowly, and monitor individual response to turpentine.

A common way to take turpentine is on sugar cubes. This is a simple way to get turpentine into the system.

Bill Thompson recommends, "If you want to take consecutive turpentine doses for a particular problem then I would take turpentine for five days and then have two days off turpentine and do it like this for about 6 weeks only. This protocol will help to get rid of most pathogens and parasites from your body."

Bill also says, "Start with small dosages of turpentine -- best to start with drop dosages of your choice or start with 1/4 teaspoon and slowly work up to the full 1 teaspoon dose. Take turpentine just before meals. Start taking turpentine just twice a week then work towards taking turpentine on a one-day on, one-day off protocol. Take plenty of breaks from this protocol because this regimen kills a large range of pathogens including parasites, candida, bacteria, viruses, mycoplasma, etc...Adjust the dosage accordingly to reduce the stress."

Dosage Information for Candida and Fungal Infections

According to Bill, "The preventative dose is on a one day on and one day off basis and is meant to help those who have massive initial Herx die-off reactions by having a day off after you take the turpentine-- this makes for a gentler ride for the user when you initially kill all that candida."

Bill recommends taking turpentine with castor oil when treating pathogens and candida in the intestinal tract. The castor oil coats the digestive tract and helps to spread out the turpentine. The castor oil also has a laxative effect, important to help the body eliminate the pathogens that the turpentine is killing off.

What is the Best Turpentine to Use for Medicinal Purposes?

Be sure to read the reader feedback in this section with suggestions for where to buy the best turpentine.

Many Earth Clinic contributors prefer the Diamond G Forest Products Brand because it is organic and very pure.

Do pay attention to labels and make sure that the turpentine you use is truly made from pine resin and has no other added ingredients. Some products sold as turpentine are not actually made from pine resin but from petroleum products. These are not recommended to be used medically.

Turpentine Side Effects

As with most natural and even not-so-natural remedies, turpentine can have side effects. You will find more information about turpentine side effects and how to avoid them here.

What About Kerosene as a Natural Remedy?

Kerosene, like turpentine, is a distilled product. While it can be distilled from wood, most kerosene these days is distilled from petroleum. While kerosene has been used medicinally in the past, like turpentine, because most kerosene is derived from petroleum, it is not recommended that kerosene be used medicinally, unless it is for an emergency and no other remedy is available.

Read on to see how Earth Clinic readers have used turpentine for their own health conditions. If you have used turpentine for health issues, please be sure to share your story with us!

Turpentine for Stubborn Acid Reflux (GERD)

This is how I cured my acid reflux which I suffered from for 17 years (nothing else had helped):

1 teaspoon daily of purified gum turpentine. (I took it in my mouth and washed it down with a glass of water. do not swallow without water as it can get into the windpipe.)

I paused for 1-3 days when side effects like diarrhea were too much. Side effects subside the cleaner your body gets. Turpentine kills of biofilms which cause the acid reflux.

Bill, do you think it would be helpful to take Vitamin C for any Herx or die-off reaction? I've seen this in detox protocols to protect the liver. Not sure if applies here. Thanks!

Hi Jake...Vitamin C is useful and I also use it in my own protocols against candida. Ordinary Vitamin C -- ascorbic acid -- is also useful for detoxing but best used to bowel tolerance strength and that's because vitamin c is so poorly absorbed into the body from the gut. Only about 15% to 20% of oral vitamin c(in either ascorbate or ascorbic acid forms) is absorbed into the blood. So this is quite an inefficient and wasteful way to take vitamin c.

Other more efficient ways of supplementing vitamin are as follows:

* By IV as ascorbate
* Lyphosomal Vitamin C
* Vitamin C(as ascorbate) + DMSO used transdermaly
* Oral or transdermal dehydroascorbic acid(DHA)

Most people already know all about taking the the oral, IV and Lyphosomal forms of vitamin c. But taking it as DHA is interesting. The DHA form, when taken orally, is absorbed from the gut into the blood much more efficiently and quickly than with the ordinary oral form. DHA is also easily absorbed into the cells because it is a glucose mimic. It takes a different pathway from the gut into the blood and this is called the GLUT-1 pathway. The body thinks the DHA is glucose and will therefore absorb much larger amounts of DHA more easily into the blood and cells. And if you starve your body of glucose -- as in IPT therapy -- then this will sensitize the GLUT-1 receptors more which will then absorb even higher amounts of DHA into the cells. Another unique advantage of DHA is that it is easily absorbed across the blood/brain and blood/bone barriers whereas this is not the case for ordinary vitamin c. The only problem with the DHA form is that it seems to be more expensive than the ordinary oral vitamin c form.

If you want a cheap and cheerful way to orally supplement DHA then, as Ted from Bangkok recommends, all you need is lugols iodine, Baking Soda(Arm & Hammer is fine to use), Ascorbic acid and a glass of water. First add 1/4 tspn of ascorbic acid(1 gram) to the water. Then add 6 drops of LI. You will notice that the iodine in the water turns from brown to clear and that's because the ascorbic acid is oxidized and converted to DHA while the molecular iodine is reduced to clear iodide. The last thing you add is the baking soda -- add this until the fizzing stops. Now you have an oral solution of sodium ascorbate + iodide + DHA in ascorbate form. Cheaper, convenient and effective.

Another useful way to take vitamin c(as ascorbate) is transdermally using DMSO and water(70% DMSO + 30% water by volume). To this ascorbate/DMSO mixture just add 6 drops of iodine. This creates some DHA in the mix. Therefore, when you paint your skin with this mixture, the DMSO will efficiently carry about 80% of the Vit C + DHA + iodide directly into the blood. This simple transdermal method also has the other advantage of not causing any problems or ructions in the gut because you're not taking it orally.

Concerning candida and detox I would take something like Vitamin C, Sodium Thiosulfate or EDTA for detoxing the blood and organs but I would also make sure to take chlorella for purely intestinal detox. Dr William Kelly verified in his writings that chlorella contains large molecules called alginates. These large molecules, after they bind to heavy metals in the gut, cannot be absorbed or redistributed into the blood from the colon because alginate is such a huge molecule -- that's why alginates can only remove heavy metals in the gut. With the other forms -- Vitamin C, Sodium Thiosulfate etc that act in the blood -- their will always be some redistribution of heavy metals in the body. So that's one very good reason to use chlorella for gut detox -- especially when you have candida because candida biofilms in the gut contain such high amounts of heavy metals. So when you destroy alot of candida biofilms using turpentine then you must take the chlorella 1/2 hr to 1 hr after the turps to mop up and neutralize all the heavy metals released from biofilm destruction. if you don't mop up these heavy metals in the gut promptly and appropriately then they will just get absorbed into the blood via the colon to cause all manner of physical, mental and other symptoms and problems.

Dear Bill,

Thanks for taking time to post this fascinating information! I have a couple of questions if you do not mind.

The recipe to make DHA with lugol's, ascorbic acid and baking soda - would that be an appropriate way to get a more easily absorbed form of vitamin C for general immune boosting? (Like for when you are sick with a cold?)

Also, would this "count" towards your iodine and vitamin C needs for those using the Iodine protocol for thyroid?

Finally, is the Lugol's you use for this the 5% version?

I take the equivalent of 8 drops a day of 5% (still finishing up my 2% bottle) and am wondering if I made and took the DHA if I would still want to take more iodine, or if at that point, it would be overkill.

Thanks so much!

Hi Mama to Many...In answer to your questions:

The recipe to make DHA with lugol's, ascorbic acid and baking soda - would that be an appropriate way to get a more easily absorbed form of vitamin C for general immune boosting? (Like for when you are sick with a cold?)

If you require more absorbable vitamin c then, yes, taking it with LI will increase the absorption of vitamin c(as dehydroascorbic acid) into the body.

To begin to answer this question I've come to the belief that Vitamin C, Lugols Iodine and Sea Salt are all critical for the immune system because all these nutrients actually constitute the main ammunition to help the neutrophils engulf and destroy pathogens for the immune system. The phagocytes and neutrophils of the immune system actively destroy all pathogens -- viruses, bacteria, fungi etc -- by spraying out hydrogen peroxide, hypochlorous acid and hypoiodous acid over the engulfed pathogen which immediately destroys these pathogens who have no defence and cannot possibly adjust to these substances because their destructive action is so quick. Then they are engulfed and digested by the phagocytes for later excretion via the liver.

From my own research, vitamin c is indeed vital to the immune system and is stored onboard the phagocyte, later to be converted into hydrogen peroxide. Similarly, sea salt or chlorides are absorbed and stored by the phagocyte to later be converted by an enzyme(myeloperoxidase) together with the hydrogen peroxide(from vitamin c) to create the hypochlorous acid that is sprayed out over the pathogen to kill it. Exactly the same process happens when the iodide stored in the phagocyte is later converted and used as hypoiodous acid to kill all manner of pathogens. What's more, I've read research where they confirmed that the hypoiodous acid form was seven times stronger at killing pathogens than the hypochlorous acid form.

It should also be of interest, with everyone's somewhat one-sided fascination and praise of just anti-oxidants, that hydrogen peroxide, hypochlorous acid and hypoiodous acid are all oxidants that use their unique free-radical action to kill pathogens in the human body at the appropriate time. The fascinating thing that occurs to me is that the human body critically needs the correct balance of both oxidants(free-radicals) and anti-oxidants in the body to have a healthy and strong immune system. Another important outcome from this is that it appears to be the habit of the normal human body to store useful oxidants as anti-oxidants. And when these dangerous free-radical oxidants are sprayed outside the phagocyte to kill pathogens and, after completion of this task, then other enzymes in the blood such as catalase or SOD will act to safely mop up and remove these dangerous excess free-radicals from the blood which, if left to accumulate unchecked, would further act to cause host cell damage in the human body.

My conclusions are that both oxidants and antioxidants are essential and critical for the human body to be healthy with a strong immune system. I take sea salt, vitamin c and larger dose LI every day. This is also perhaps why I have caught no infectious disease like a cold or flu or anything within the last 9 years. And no autoimmune problems yet either even though I'm a fairly old geezer. All I'm doing here is simply keeping my immune system ammo up to scratch and this has worked quite well for me as a sort of ongoing preventative protocol.

Also, would this "count" towards your iodine and vitamin C needs for those using the Iodine protocol for those using the Iodine protocol for thyroid?

Taking the iodine with Vitamin C certainly will count towards more iodide storage in the thyroid and body. But, getting deeper into it, the body really needs the triiodide, iodide and molecular iodide forms. SSKI is useful as iodide for the thyroid but it does not have the molecular iodine or triiodide forms. Nascent Iodine(NI) is also useful because it contains just triiodide form. But triiodide will not detox heavy metals or halides(bromine and fluorine) out of the body. NI is touted as being the easiest iodine form for absorption in the body. Not true. For instance the female breast can only accept and store the molecular iodine form. This is why I prefer the LI form of iodine -- it's just the best and most complete form of iodine out there.

Finally, is the Lugol's you use for this the 5% version?

Yes I always use 5% LI for my own protocols. For all dosages that I give out you should be using 5% LI. This seems to confuse people. For instance if, say, you are using 2% LI and take 8 drops a day then that is not the dose I recommend -- too low because 8 drops of 5% LI is equivalent to 20 drops of 2% LI. Another way of looking at this is that 5% LI contains 50 mgs iodine/iodide whereas 8 drops of 2% LI contains only 20 mgs iodine/iodide. See the LI mgs to drop conversion chart here.

I take the equivalent of 8 drops a day of 5% (still finishing up my 2% bottle) and am wondering if I made and took the DHA if I would still want to take more iodine, or if at that point, it would be overkill.

Taking LI with just water or with vitamin c is really your choice depending on what problem you are addressing. I use the vitamin c with LI to increase the negative conductivity of the cells in my body which is so good for overall health. But when you take LI with vitamin c you are essentially taking ascorbic acid, DHA and just the iodide form. This is why I always take the LI form with water -- this ensures that I get the triiodide, iodide and molecular iodine forms that are all so beneficial for the body.

Some more information for you which will immeasurably help anybody's immune system. The nutrient is called bovine colostrum. In 1957 a French virologist name Albert Sabin invented the first oral polio vaccine which he synthesized and made from bovine colostrum. He also loudly proclaimed that all young children should take colostrum every day. Dairy farmers have known about the beneficial effects of colostrum for centuries.

I've recently been reading where colostrum will cure all forms of allergies as well as actively cure infectious and autoimmune diseases. See the evidence and read why here.

Benefits of Colostrum

I've also been reading where people have been cured of CFS, Fibro, MS, gut problems and there was one gent who had serious candida issues who only drank one gallon of the liquid colostrum straight from the cow which cured him completely of candida and all his allergies problems (including allergies to milk and wheat) within two weeks. All he did was to slowly drink one gallon of bovine colostrum until it was gone.

Some more research on the effects of Immune Milk(more pathogen-specific than colostrum) against a host of bacterial, fungal and viral diseases:

Immune Milk Facts

So it seems as if colostrum is a nutrient that acts as a completely safe multi-vaccine for kids and grown-ups alike. It seems to be a very fast way to reset, retrain and stregthen the immune system. Bovine Colostrum contains bovine anti-bodies against all the common diseases in our environment like Candida, Shigella, H Pylori, Staph, Strep, Epstein Barr, HSV, E. Coli etc. that get passed like blueprints from the mother cow directly to the child or adult to help strengthen the immune system by leaps and bounds. So if a child or adult is continually sick with a weak immune system with lots of allergies or gut problems then colostrum will definitely provide lasting benefit.

The best colostrum seems to come from New Zealand where all cows are grass fed without being force-fed antibiotics, steroids, unnatural feeds etc.

I only thought to mention colostrum because I am well aware that you worry about your own kids health and well being(especially in the winter season).

Just started taking the turpentine with castor oil last week for arthritis. Starting slowly with 2 doses a week. I'll be up to 10 drops this weekend. Noticing a difference with energy already. The side effects have been minor. The hardest day was day 1 with 3 drops of turpentine in 1 tsp of castor oil with nausea for hours - drank lots of water which, helped. 2nd day was much smoother - I was nauseous for only 15 min. and felt great the rest of the day - doses always make me thirsty so I drink LOTS of water on the day of and for the next day or two after a dose.

I have a question though, for Bill: would you please recommend a brand or two of organic, cold pressed castor oil?

I have searched for "organic cold pressed castor oil for internal use" on both Amazon and eBay and the only organic, cold pressed castor oil I can find is for skin, eyelashes and hair. Having a hard time finding castor oil on the internet for internal use that's organic and cold pressed. Some organic, cold pressed castor oils clearly state "for external use only" - the one's that don't, show no indication for internal use, leaving me guessing. Also, many organic, cold pressed castor oils on the internet do not show ingredients so, I could be getting a product that is not pure castor oil. I originally purchased the HUMCO castor oil at our local grocery store before starting the turpentine treatment - it is cold pressed, no hexanes but, not organic. However, it's the only castor oil I can find that clearly indicates on the bottle it is intended for internal use.

Better But With Side Effects

Hello, after reading your site, I started taking turpentine for my arthritis. I've been taking it for a little over a week. (1tsp turpentine/1tsp honey) After only a few days the arthritis pain was completely gone as was the pain from two bone spurs on my foot.

My question is this; I'm having stomach pain (intestinal). I am not sure if it is related or coincidence, but I wanted to ask, should I take less, or do you have a recommendation? I've seen other sites relating "turpentine poisoning" to severe stomach pain.

Thank you!

You may want to try and drink 1 or 2 ounces of liquid bentonite clay to help with the gut pain from the turpentine. It is neutral, not active like turpentine, and will absorb toxins in the gut, from flu and food poisoning as well by smothering it and snuffing it out like a candle. You could have pain from raw gut exposed or just die off in the gut, the clay won't hurt you either way, but it will smother whatever is bothering you!

Better But With Side Effects

Like Softa, I too tried the turpentine for extreme arthritis but have seen results I was not expecting. I tried Dr Daniels protocol using the sugar cubes and 1 tsp. of turp. and have had 2 doses. The first on a Fri. and then the following up with the second dose on Tues. My back feels better (but wondering if that isn't due to the enemas). The unexpected result I experienced is that my left knee and right hip are in terrible pain, hurting more than ever. My knee seems to hurt the worst and oddly I didn't have pain in it before I started the protocol. I have also found that by drinking so much water my feet and legs swell up something awful so I did cut back on how much I drink. I keep a quart jar of distilled water with me at all times and drink from it throughout the day (refilling as I go) and my guess is that I am drinking about 3/4 of a gal., which I seem to be able to handle.I am also drinking juices that I make at home with my juicer. I will continue to try for a few more weeks to see if there are any improvements.

I first heard of turpentine being used as med. when I was very young from my grandparents and then again about 8-10 yrs ago from a gentleman in his mid 70's. My children had gotten head lice while in primary school and he told me I should give them a dose because it would get rid of anything. Of course I didn't because I thought it was poisonous. Seems his family used it as he was growing up.

If anyone knows why the pain in my knee and hip have gotten worse I would love to hear or any suggestions regarding the arthritis. I also have considered the oxygen therapy as well. The thought of drinking water that tastes like bleach doesn't appeal to me but if it helps the arthritis that would be worth it.

Mary: You are experiencing "detox reactions" from only two doses of turpentine. Chronic arthritis (pain & inflammation) isn't really a disease in itself, it is a symptom of disease caused by bad diet, toxicity, infection, etc.

Depending on the severity of your case (usually severity coincides w/ age) will determine how bad the "reactions" and how much time it takes to clear the bad stuff.

Here is a link to the detox page for more info https://www.earthclinic.com/cures/detoxification.html

For starters I highly recommend antioxidant nutrition (a deficiency of which causes many types of chronic and inflammatory conditions), Dr Christopher's "Red Clover Combination" herb caps, Epsom Salts/Baking Soda/Borax whole body hot baths, Iodine, and ACV. Detox Foot Spas & Patches are great for eliminating heavy metals and zenobiotics as well as parasites.

Mary, I believe your hurting in your knee and hip is due to your body getting rid of the arthritis. It takes a while for your body to rid itself of arthritis after you start taking the medicine like turpentine. I was checking out candida cleanse online and that protocol is taken for 6 weeks and it is understood that your body continues even after you are done with the program to rid your body of toxins. Usually, your body experiences effects of removing the toxins with nausea, aching, headaches, extreme fatigue, etc. Your body aching in parts where you have never experience pain is right there with the effects others have experienced. You will probably get worse before you get better but don't get discouraged. The way I feel about it is that the sicker I am while taking the stuff, the better I will feel when the body is finished releasing the toxins. If you do not get the results you hoped with taking turpentine, you might check out the book CANDIDA Killing So Sweetly by Bill Thompson. Also, be careful not to take too much of the turpentine at a time and don't take it too long. While it can be curing, it can also be deadly taking too much of it. Taking turpentine is suppose to be the last alternative in the Candida Cleanse like what you do when the regular cleanse does not get it all and the Candida returns again after you believe you have rid your body of all Candida. When you read the Candida book, you will see that Candida is the cause of your arthritis and when you get rid of the Candida, you will rid your body of the pain of arthritis. You will get rid of a myriad of other maladies also. You are obviously very smart because you are finding solutions for the problems your body is experiencing and not waiting on a doctor to help. There are many of us out here that are taking our help in our hands and looking for solutions. Don't stop searching and finding solutions....that is the true key. I believe this is one reason they say we are the generation to live to be 150 years old. We will not depend on traditional medicine to cure our ills.

Hi Bill Thompson- thank you for this fascinating site, and for the protocol information below for autism. My son has autism. After being diagnosed at age 2 at the severe end of the spectrum, he is now actually doing very well (aged 6) since we took him out of the national health care system and carefully selected a few treatments that felt right. His main difficulties are with understanding social interactions.

We don't have any particular reason to think that parasites or bacteria are the cause - unless that is always the cause of such conditions.

According to your responses so far, it seems that the protocol is different depending on the age of the child. What would it be for a 6-year old, and how long would it need to go on for (or is it ongoing)? Is there anything else we can do for him to support the process?

(would this also be a suitable protocol for an adult for general health and to possibly resolve un-diagnosed health niggles?)

Thank you again.

Best Wishes,
Guy

Hi Guy...If you want to follow a cure protocol for ASD disorders then Keri Rivera's Protocol is quite successful and has the right approach. To get a better idea about her protocol, you can download her book -- Healing the Symptoms Known as Autism -- for free from her website. Her protocol involves a parasite cleanse, candida cleanse and heavy metals cleanse. These comprise daily oral therapies, enemas and a special diet for the child. So far, according to her website, 181 ASD kids have been completely cured according to their ATEC scores.

Keri's protocol fully accepts that candida and parasites as well as heavy metals(from vaccines) are the main cause of autism -- it is the waste toxins or poisons from these particular pathogens that acts on the delicate developing brain of a child that causes these serious ASD symptoms and strange behaviours. I believe this to be true because I've been working with a parents autism group for the last 2 years and I've seen all the images they post showing their kid's poop. Every single one of the kids in this large group has both candida and parasites(worms). Alot of the parents also have candida too.

I was asked to help this ASD parent's group with the protocol and that's when I introduced turpentine, iodine, alkalizing, borax etc into their protocols. This seems to have also helped to accelerate recovery. My own full protocol for getting rid of candida and parasites is shown here. Adult and kids dosages are shown in my protocols. If you want more information and the truth about systemic candida problems then I've also written a book called Candida: Killing So Sweetly which might help your own understanding about this fungus.

You would do well to steer clear and not take the allopathic approach to autism. Doctors will only ever recommend managing the symptoms of ASD with never any actual cure in sight. Very few doctors appreciate or understand ASD disorders -- but Dr William Shaw's Research seems to have a particularly good handle on it.

Hi Abdi...Since your son is 17 y o then he should take adult dosages. The Turpentine protocol is quite simple and involves combining the following:

Castor Oil -- Dose range 1 teaspoon to 1 tablespoon.

Turpentine -- 1 teaspoon of pure gum spirit turpentine.

Add for taste -- one teaspoon of Molasses or Honey.

Start with small dosages of turpentine -- best to start with drop dosages of your choice or start him with 1/4 tspn and slowly work up to the full 1 tspn dose. Take turpentine just before meals. Start you son taking turps just twice a week then work towards giving him turps on a one day on, one day off protocol. Take plenty of breaks from this protocol because this regimen kills a large range of pathogens including parasites, candida, bacteria, viruses, mycoplasma etc. So he will probably get significant die-off(Herx) and detox reactions. Adjust the dosage accordingly to reduce the stress.

You can buy pure gum spirit turpentine at Walmart or Home Depot and other sellers. Brands of turpentine that you can buy and use in the protocol:

Diamond G Forest Products -- Organic Turpentine

Klean Strip Turpentine 1 -- Walmart or Home Depot

KleanStrip 1-K Kerosene -- Walmart or Home Depot

Other nutrients that your son should take are Lugols Iodine, Borax Water and Alkalizing -- You can find all descriptions and dosages for these protocols on EC or in my book on candida. Other necessary and essential protocols are described in this document and, in greater detail, in my book:

Adjunct Nutrients to Help Minimize Detox and Herx Reactions and to Help Proper Brain Development and Healing (wrt Learning, Social and Behavioural Problems)

You can also add the Hulda Clark Parasite Protocol(Google it) to this regimen which would also benefit your son.

Lastly, it would also greatly help your son if he took enemas regularly at least two or three times a week. Parasites and pathogens can hide safely in the lower intestines because most nutrients that you take by mouth will be completely absorbed or expended by the time they reach the lower intestines(the intestines is 28 ft long). This is why you should incorporate enemas into his regimen.

Hi Abdi...I forgot to mention diet. Avoid the following foods: sugar, wheat, dairy products, yeast products and avoid medicines like anti-depressants, painkillers, steroids and all antibiotics. All these things feed or encourage the spread of pathogens in the body -- especially candida -- and avoiding them will also help to reduce allergies.

Turpentine in its pure form is just essential oils of pine and should smell just like that. Look for small bottles like at a craft store (the best I have found). Painters use turpentine for thinning and I've read on several forums their frustration with quality and not being able to find the real thing anymore. You will be hard pressed to find anything in a can that is pure and can be taken internally, regardless if it says pure gum spirits on the outside. Be careful as I tried this in the beginning and just the smell caused me to get very ill. This works, that is why it is difficult to find and is considered taboo by dr's. If we can cure ourselves we don't spend hundreds of thousands on chemo.

I jusdt oredered and paypalled 24 1oz bottles, the largest size they are permitted to ship (email copy below)

Jan 18 at 11:14 PM David,

Thanks for contacting us! We would be happy to ship our turpentine to you in France. Since the last time we corresponded, we have negotiated a shipping arrangement with FedEx. Allow me to explain.

Because turpentine is a flammable liquid, we must follow very strict guidelines when shipping it, especially internationally. We cannot ship our turpentine internationally in any container larger than a 1 oz. bottle without incurring a Dangerous Goods Surcharge by our carrier. For this reason, we have a developed an international package that maximizes the quantity we can ship for the international shipping rate charged by our carrier. The rate for shipping this international package to you is as follows:$59.99 ... 24 one-ounce bottles of 100% Pure Gum Spirits of Turpentine$42.28 ... shipping via FedEx International Economy$102.27 ... TOTALAny duties, taxes, or fees imposed by your country's government are your responsibility as well.We can ship any of our other products (soap, salve, rosin, etc.) to you in any quantity at very reasonable rates. Only the turpentine is a flammable liquid.


If you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact us. If this price quote meets with your approval, simply contact us, and we will send you an electronic invoice that you can pay with either a Paypal account or a credit/debit card.Thanks again! Julie Griner

Hi Madhu...I really see very little difference between aged and normal turpentine. Both the oxidized and reduced forms of beneficial iso-pinenes in turpentine are good for the body. See this link. So whether the turpentine is aged (oxidized) or not would seem to make little difference as to its effectiveness for the body.

Greetings. I'm pleased to have found your site. I was introduced to using rectified turpentine many years ago by a homeopathic physician. I was told to only use Rectified turpentine as an impurer form can negatively affect the liver. His remedy was one drop (via an eyedropper) per 10 lbs of body weight. Repeat in 7 days to kill any eggs. I'm having difficulty finding turpentine in the rectified form here in the DR. Basically they have white & yellow. It sounds like you feel comfortable with most types of turpentine, rectified or not. Could those in-the-know expand on this? Especially concerning the liver. Thanks!

Hi Jere...Rectified turpentine has sodium hydroxide or potassium hydroxide solution added to it whereas pure gum spirits turpentine does not -- it should be made only from the sap oil of the pine tree. Also, whether the turpentine now comes from the bark or whether it comes from the wood or sap is also a bit of a grey area nowadays. For the most part, turpentine is now made as a by-product from the wood and pulp industries. My own preference is to use the distilled pure gum spirit turps without any additives(non-rectified).

Any product that is labelled "pure gum turpentine" should just contain the distilled oil from the tree bark or wood with no further additives. If you want pure gum turps that is collected only from the bark sap and that is organic -- then here is a good source:

http://www.diamondgforestproducts.com/Products.htm

Turpentine contains beneficial iso-pinenes, which act to help cleanse the intestines and purify the blood. Because of its blood purification capabilities. (I've been regularly taking turpentine, at one teaspoon dose, for over a year now. I don't take turps every day because my own current use of turpentine is as a preventative. Generally I take turpentine once or twice a week with castor oil and molasses (or honey).

Haven't seen any major reactions yet, except a feeling of drowsiness on two occasions and a couple of days of all-over achiness. But that could have been due to shoveling all this snow too!

Replied by Bill

Hi M Trying...Rectified just means to purify and doesn't really apply to the manufacture of gum turpentine. But it's quite normal to use gum turpentine internally that has been distilled and this is how it's normaly sold. Distilled just means that the thick pine sap from the tree has been boiled between certain temperatures to obtain a thinner distillate that is eventually sold as pure gum turpentine. Just make sure that it's pure gum turpentine -- without any extra additives like Xylene, Toluene etc and you should be fine.

As advised by Walter Last, there are also several ways to supplement gum turpentine. You can either take it with water or molasses or milk(emulsifier) or raw honey or sugar on an empty stomach, which will then be absorbed quickly into the blood and act to disinfect and purify the blood(i.e. clears the blood, tissues etc of pathogens). Or you can take gum turpentine together with a heavier oil like castor oil or coconut oil for a similar purifying effect throughout the intestines only (because combining it with a heavier oil helps to prevent turpentine absorption into the blood).

Hi Bill,

I had had a question regarding turpentine. After reading your posts and of many others regarding the health benefits of turpentine, I decided to add it to my daily routine. I bought gum spirits of turpentine made from slash pine trees. It is manufactured here in the US, from a company called Diamond G Forest Products, Georgia. On the bottle it says "solvent for removing paints and waxes. DANGER: Harmful or fatal if swallowed; irritant to skin and eyes."

Is this a statutory type of warning? Or did I get the wrong kind of turpentine? If so, I will return it. But I would be grateful if you could guide me to a brand that is safe to take internally and one which is available easily in the US. Thank you for taking the time to respond!

Hi Tina... I know Diamond V Georgia Turpentine and it is a very good organic product. Most turpentine products are the rectified form -- usually made from the distillation of stumps and wood from pine trees. But Diamond V is made in the older proper way -- by collecting the sap from pine trees and distilling this bark sap into pure gum turpentine.

When you begin supplementing with turpentine start either with drop dosages or just start with a 1/4 teaspoon and increase the dose slowly, over a week or more(with breaks), to 1 teaspoon.

The way I supplement turpentine, I take one teaspoon of either raw honey or molasses(your own preference) to coat the tongue and mouth. Then I take 1 one teaspoon of castor oil(or you can use VCO as an alternative if you like) and mix this all up in my mouth. Finally I add the turpentine dosage and mix it all up in the mouth and then chase this down with a glass of water.

Unfortunately, turpentine is not soluble or miscible in water -- which is why you need to take it with an oil of some sort. Other methods of taking turpentine: With sugar or with milk. If you have candida then take the dose before a meal. This ensures that the turps will be carried into the intestines to do its good work against candida there.

I take the turpentine dose only twice a week for preventative reasons. But if you have a problem like candida then you should slowly work up to one teaspoon every day if you can. You will, most likely, get significant die-of or Herx reactions. You are allowed to stop this protocol and have as many breaks as you like in order to make the healing crisis less severe. This is up to you.

Because turpentine is such a rapid pathogen and parasite killer, I take it twice a week as a general preventative. And if you do have a problem in your intestines then supplementing turpentine like this will give a healing reaction(die-off) that you will definitely notice. So I am also using this protocol not only as a preventative, but also as a gauge or indicator if anything is wrong with my intestines. As most know, my own way is to protect the liver, kidney, thyroid and intestines in my own protocols for health.

But there are even more ways of taking turpentine, depending on what outcomes you want. In the above, I have already described how to best take the turpentine to get rid of problems in the intestines against candida, bacteria, parasites etc. But turps is also a blood purifier -- in the blood, it kills many forms of pathogens, expels xenobiotics and also acts as a mild diuretic. That's what I mean by "purifying the blood". So how do we take turps to get rid of blood born diseases to help purify the blood?

The best method obviously involves getting the turps into the blood as fast as possible. Unfortunately, other than taking just the turpentine on an empty stomach outside mealtimes there are not many ways of doing this. But I am considering one way. I've also read that turps can be taken with wine(turps is also soluble in alcohol), so my own idea is to supplement the turps using a small amount of distilled alcohol with water. This would ensure very rapid absorption of the turps directly into the blood from the stomach. I haven't tried this yet(and I don't advise it), but will report back later on how this goes.

Maybe this is why Gin made from conifer is such a common drink among those living in the wilderness; it proly has many of the healing qualities as Turpentine. These may mix well for the body, but the mind will be no better off. Maybe once or twice per wk would be beneficial.

Speaking of methods of administration, Bill; what about Liposomal Turpentine w/ or without sonication? This would definitely promise to deliver the T systemically as opposed to mostly the gut. Am definately willing to give this a try.

Replied by Bill

Hi Timh...Liposomal turpentine certainly sounds interesting, but creating a liposomal nano-capsule relies on using lecithin oil to completely surround a droplet of the turpentine. Unfortunately, turpentine is very soluble in such oils so I don't think it would allow the oil to surround and encapsulate it -- but instead would just dissolve in it, thus preventing true liposomal delivery. That's only my opinion, mind you, so might be worth a try.

I also looked into DMSO as possible mechanism for turps delivery into the blood quickly in order to avoid the intestinal route but, unfortunately again, I found out that turpentine was completely insoluble in DMSO. So there are some drawbacks with turpentine, mainly due to its lipophillic nature.

I'm also trying an experiment right now with the turps. I mentioned in another post that I was going to try taking a small amount of alcohol distillate and turpentine mixed with water for faster direct absorption from the stomach into the blood -- for blood born diseases. I've had an annoying head cold and tickle in the throat for the last couple of days, so I thought I would try turps against this virus. I found an old bottle of whisky so I used that. Two teaspoons of jock whisky mixed with one teaspoon turpentine was the dose, then I added a third of a glass of water and drank it down (without ice...lol). Didn't taste that bad, to tell the truth.

That was over 2 hours ago. And yes, there were a few rumbles in the jungle from way down below, as well as some minor bloating effects but nothing too awkward, radical or painful. No nausea or anything like that. I have to admit that right now my head is not so fuzzy, blocked nose is gone, my vision is a lot clearer with apparently less coughing. It's evening now and early days yet, so will be able to judge the result more honestly tomorrow or in the next few days I think.

Hi Tina...Turpentine is mainly an anti-oxidant therapy but Hydrogen Peroxide is a pro-oxidant therapy. So if you take them at the same time they will react with each other to cancel out and neutralize each other's beneficial effects.

Luckily, hydrogen peroxide only lasts for about an hour in the body before it is used up. So just make sure that you take the turpentine dose at least an hour or two after you have taken the hydrogen peroxide.

It's not so bad for the turpentine because the reduced form(anti-oxidant) and the oxidized form of turpentine both have beneficial properties for the body. See this link. However, whenever HP is neutralized by an anti-oxidant it is usually just converted to oxygen and water and all its pathogen-killing and detox properties are lost as a consequence.
