Then cloth - an old t-shirt will work - are to be dipped in the solution and wrung out, and applied to the lower abdomen. It will cause the stones to be disentigrated suffiecent for passing.Do it for an hour at a time, for 4 days and then give it a rest for three. Then repeat - untill all the stones have passed.

Laxatives to Help

Posted by Evelina (UK) on 09/05/2021

Hey, I just got 100% gum turpentine, I know how to use it, but the question is, what to use to have 3 bowel movements? can I use any laxatives? I can't get Dr Jennifer Daniels Vitality capsules to send to my country which is sad so I'm wondering what is the best to use to have 3 bowel movements?

Hi Evelina,

Magnesium citrate should get things moving and if you want faster movement add in high dose vitamin C. Both are likely to offer you other health benefits also with regular use.

I was told I had benign tumors and endometriosis as that's what lab results came back as. WRONG. I did my own lab tests with a local lab (thank you Quest) I was able to find out that I have liver flukes.

1 teaspoon of pure gum spirits of turpentine followed by 1 teaspoon of castor oil. You will be AMAZED!! The old remedies are sometimes the BEST!!

Replied by Madelyn

Hi Glori,

Did you only need to take 1 dose of the turpentine and castor oil to completely get rid of the liver flukes?

In response to Emma's post from 2015:

Posted by Emma (Wa, Usa) on 01/05/2015: "Hello everyone, I'm new to this site (and turpentine) and I decided to join because this looks like a good place for valid information regarding turpentine usage. I know that turpentine is xenobiotic and I am on a couple of Rx meds. Does anyone know what the timing/spacing should be? I have lyme and co-infections and would like to know if anyone is using turpentine for the same reason, and if successes/failures can be shared. I appreciate any input."

I have lyme and confections as well. Ever since I started turpentine a month I've felt better than I have in 10 years. Haven't been retested to know any specifics or test data, but I do know how I feel....and that is night and day better. I am doing a few other things as well like coffee enemas and epsom salt baths, but I really noticed the difference when I started turpentine.

I have had a good overall experience with turpentine over the last couple of weeks. I took it because I've been dealing with slow bowels for years. Also fatigue. Tried many things before and nothing has really helped.

I am taking 6 drops of turp on sugar. I have been taking it three nights on, two nights off. I find I sleep much better and awake without the grogginess and lethargy I have been so used to for years. That is the biggest positive effect I have noticed and I love it. It has not helped my elimination time, although when I used an enema with it I think it really helps to clean out junk that I don't normally get out.

The one concern I have is that over the last week I have noticed my feet are especially sore and achey. Today my hands, wrists and forearms are very sore too, and I notice I have a ganglion cyst on one of my wrists, which I have never had before! I do not have a history of arthritis or damage.

Does anyone know anything about this possible side effect and if this is a normal temporary thing, or if I need to support my detox more somehow, or if I should stop turpentine?

Thank you for any advice.

How are you faring, Emma of VT? I do not know the answer to your question, just thought I would share what little I do know on the subject. Yes, even I have used turpentine. As they say desperate times call for desperate measures. Turpentine is not for everyone, if you feel it is causing other problems it may not be for you. However, perhaps you are having a herx dieoff reaction, if so maybe you should go back to one or two drops. Read more about the experience of others with turpentine to see if you want to continue.


When I take Turpentine, I usually take it in the morning before breakfast. We are told to start with the drops. I have been using off and on for a few years usually to prevent or cure a UTI after a sugary occasion. I take a teaspoon of turpentine and afterwards a teaspoon of blackstrap molasses. I also take a laxative, such as Castor oil or Bentonite clay just in case there are some worms that are trying to flee the turpentine, I want them to have a speedy exit out. I also make sure I drink a little extra water.

I pray you are already feeling so much better. Be well. HisJewel

Sauerkraut juice. Get a good sauerkraut like Bubby's, and slam all the juice in one go. It'll break up the ganglion cyst.

Replied by irene

Emma (VT) you have to use something to make you eliminate while taking turpentine until your bowels get regular. You can use Dr Jennifer Daniels Vitality capsuls or try Epsom salt if you are ok with taking it. If I were you I would stop taking it for a few days and use something to help you poo. Dr Daniels recommend that you are pooping 3 times a day or regularly if you are taking it .She is the pioneer of the turpentine trend I hope 💖 this help.

I know the last time I took turps, my left arm ached bad for a month or longer. What I understand it to be was that went to fast with too high a dose and my candida (most likely) ran for the hills but not out, and arms were fastest escape . How to remedy this I don't know . MMS in doses higher than protocol might help from my experience. I had an abscess, not a bad tooth, I think from my cell phone because mouth always hurt and throbbed when my phone was close, and I took 10 drops in 1/4c of distilled water 3 in a row on the hour for 3 days and it went away . Take it easy with the turps . MMS … overdue it . It won't cause same herx as turps .

Turpentine effects on me--it's doing so Something!

I am doing the castor oil, with 1 tsp turpentine now. This is will be my first FULL 4 day cleanse. I tried previously, and just got to 2 days.

During round 1, terminated at around two, days, I had various effects:

*heart pain, as if something was moving through my arteries

* many small red hives appeared on my inner lower leg, and ankle

* on my chin and face a small blister opened up, just one

In each area.

I did did not feel I was successful I completing the cleanse, so, I wanted to continue..

During round 2, start four days in a row, and then twice a week, I had various effects:

*for 1 day, I had mouth blisters and sores

*i could feel it moving things in my heart though not as sharp

*early rising now, I could not get out of bed early all year until two weeks ago-- when I started the cleanse

*i have been sleepy on this drive that I do, once per week-- was so tired I had to pull over... and today, I got sleepy again

*renewed focus, my ability to learn, read and study had increase (could have been the eclipse energy too?)

* I am able to think what I want to do and easily do it, whereas in past 9 or so years, I reluctantly am doing responsible things and am cluttered -- now I am in goal setting, cleaning, and no more feet dragging mode

*renewed enthusiasm, I found myself expressive and just elated that I could hug someone, was I getting back to my old self like when I was in college?

* I could feel it in my brain, chest, and uterus? It was definitely there doing something

*i feel lighter

* I have a pain in my left ovary, but I am not sure what that is about

also, I have infertility now, so am wondering how this can help?

Thanks for for this wonderful forum-- so happy to learn more from you!

I recently used Dr Daniel's Turpentine protocol to remove Candida. She lists that people who have had Candida for more than two years might take Turpentine daily for 4 days. I only went 2 days, on that day it ran for the exit, literally, it was disgusting and creepy. My arthritis has improved though not yet gone.

I think I used to much turpentine this time as I did a week ago as both times, on the day that I had multiple bowel movements, afterward, I felt drunk, probably from turpentine reaching the brain. Though never have I taken more than one teaspoon with three sugar cubes. Also, on those days that I had multiple bowel movements, I drank a huge amount of water after taking the turpentine. I really wanted to give it an easy exit opportunity and I have to wonder if this is why on those days I had so many bowel movements versus the first day's dose, though it could just be a matter of cumulative days/doses. Also, I wonder if all the water helped the turpentine travel through my bloodstream to my brain to produce the drunk feeling.

Anyway, I'll be waiting again to let it get out of my system, and then I'll use a smaller 1/2 teaspoon dose with a lot of water after.

I plan to do it again exactly in one week except now I will do her normal 2 doses a week plan. My leaky gut symptoms are nearly gone and my MSG sensitivity is drastically improved. You MUST purchase 100% pure gum spirits of Turpentine otherwise some other deadly chemicals could be in there and Turpentine is dangerous enough on it's own. I bought mine from Home Depot, though a gal told me someplace in Georgia has the best stuff you can buy, maybe from the place already mentioned.

My symptoms overall were Anxiety, Brain fog, facial cramping, restless leg, low energy, trouble urinating, slouching, intestinal ache/burn, massive carb cravings, etc.

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.

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.

My family has used turpentine topically and internally and we have not noticed there being an odor issue. High quality turpentine smells really good anyway.

I am careful about using garlic and then going out among others but do not worry about it with turpentine.

I remember turpentine from my childhood. My grandparents used it. My grandfather took care of his own garden until he was 90 and he passed on at 93. My grandmother was 86 when she passed on. I remember them using it on a ringworm that I had.

I received my bottle from Diamond G turpentine last Friday. I soaked my feet in a basin of warm water for 20 minutes. I soaked in it for 20 - 30 minutes using 3 capfuls, I felt the tingling burning and got out, I pat myself dry, I don't rub. I soaked in 2-1/2 caps today, way less tingling.

No side effects that can't be controlled!

I noticed that I have not panicked about a pain pill (hydrocodone) since Saturday morning, nor have I taken one. That had been a problem for many years. I was afraid to go anywhere without that hydrocodone because of terrible pain in my low back, both hips, both heels.

I have not taken it orally as of yet, I don't like things that taste bad....lol.

However make sure you increase your water intake

Thank you Dr Jennifer Daniels for reminding me of a TRUTH!

Why not just rub it into your feet?

Replied by Ryan C.

Read that you ordered from diamond G did you have any issues at all? I tried emailing them asking if their bottles contain droppers at the top and asked how much shipping would be for an 8oz bottle but didn't get any response back from them. Did you consume the turpentine oil too? The bottle with droppers are very convenient as you don't have to worry about spilling any.

I would not expect them to answer. Turpentine has a warning not to be ingested, so naturally they could not say that.

Replied by Lisa M

We ingested this as children. What was added to it was sugar. It took care of worms in our bodies and other parasites, I didn't have any problems with bad feet until I got older and stopped taking it..

Now I wish I hadn't stopped taking it because my feet are so bad that I can barely walk on my heels. I have burning pain, so I will go back to what my mom did as I was a child and keep it that way.


Have you been able to get on a turp regimen and is it working for your feet? Thanks!

Hi, When I took the turpentine I passed a large roundworm in my stool a couple days later, which was great. started doing coffee enemas, which were recommended by Drn years ago. The black coffee enemas are to clean the buildup from the colon, and are great to help restore health, but when I took the enema, I felt a sudden almost electric shock in my stomach, and a few minutes later I felt a parasite (s) quickly moving around in the flesh of my right butt cheek! I smashed them physically, and have found others in other body locations since then. So I believe the coffee turpentine combo chased these from my intestinal tract and into my body to escape. Your knee and hip pain could be the same. The pain could be caused by parasites that were living in your colon, and they've now moved to a new location to escape the turpentine. If I were you, I'd continue taking the turpentine, and hopefully it will eventually get them.

Hi, thanks for your post on Turpentine and the coffee enemas; I'm having pretty good luck with 1/4 tsp of Turp for my parasites and hope I can increase that amount higher soon. I have a blocked Sigmoid colon and the blockage is fairly close to my rectum so the enemas don't work, although when I first started them some parasites were in the near end of my colon and saw those but I have used several rounds of Balck Walnut and its partner and have pretty much cleaned my intestines; I have read that you should not use Black Walnut, etc more than 3 times a year. I was full of the worms that I have gone over that recommended time. When You speak of the worms you feel in your butt I have been awakening many times at night and could hardly close my mouth due to the swelling inside my cheeks of those blasted things and also in the area, your tonsils are located. I would take Oregano oil, diluted and put 1 drop in a Dollar Tree nasal spray bottle and fill it with water to the top of the bottle and irrigate my nasal passages, got quick relief and I also use 3% HP, undiluted and rinse my mouth and gargle with it, that also seems to kill them off if in my throat. What I have noticed in using the Turp first thing in the AM that I am able to cough up a bunch of stuff. I seem to have more problems now with my lungs and sinus/head but hope that the Turp will kill them off. I also use Cloves Bud oil and take 10 drops., undiluted with 3 drops of undiluted Neem oil, that also, I'm told and read, will kill the eggs. I have to be careful of the Cloves because of a Stint I had when suffered a heart attack back in Dec 2014. Hope you have wonderful success with your protocol and appreciate your suggestions.

Does turpentine destroy parasites.


You need to be taking the turpentine with sugar because the bad sugar the white sugar is the bait for the parasites once they detach themselves from wherever they are, tumors, they're just a bunch of parasites starting a homeless camp! Once they go for that sugar they wanna exit out alive! If you're not regular you need to use it with Castor oil so you can eliminate them quickly! I've had some come out of my nose and I expelled a tapeworm that must have been living in me for years and years and years because it came out in one piece and you might as well have said I had a snake! Everyone has parasite and turpentine was the go to in the medicine cabinet in the 1800s and early 1900s until big pharma stepped in, actually they used turpentine for thousands of years. And it has to be the pure 100% turpentine in a clear glass bottle, I recommend Diamond G and Amazon has it for like 18 19 dollars.

After many years of pleading with doctors about ongoing dysentery, I looked on youtube for intestinal parasite remedies. The first video referenced turpentine. In my research for a cure, I ask many old timers and immigrants what they used to cure parasites. Coal tar was the response from the Old Folks. I thought they actually meant "coal" tar or oil. I did not know they were referring to turpentine.

I reviewed the video and then proceeded to research further. I headed off to Walmart and bought a can in the paint department, came home, poured 1 teaspoon in some honey and drank it. Not bad tasting. Like a cough drop. The next day massive amount of parasites came out with nasty looking pus sacks around them. The second dose brought out very few and the third dose was clean. This was after 8 weeks of 1 dose of pyrantel pamoate and 1 dose of ivermectin daily. I suffered for years and all I needed was good old fashion turpentine.

I have a colorectal doctors appointment tomorrow, I am taking the can with me along with a water bottle full of the parasites. This will be my 11 visit to this doctor for dysentery.

John: Congrats on the cleanse. Backing up a bit, all those doses of Ascaris meds apparently not doing any good, admits that it was likely fluke or tapeworm you're dealing with. So when you go to Dr., don't go radical with your can of Turpentine as this product is warned by the federal authorities as a "dangerous, hazardous chemical" and is warned against human consumption.

Don't consider yourself out of the woods just yet, your visible samples are likely only a myriad of stages or juveniles and the adult is still alive. The worst case would be an adult tapeworm. I am not certain a colon endoscopy would revel an adult T.W. as they usually lodge in the upper intestine, but something you need to consider.

Let us know of your progress.

I have been using Oregano Oil for intestinal worms, pretty sure one is the Rope worm with fair results. I have Turpentine from the Diamond Co and feel safe there but my big problem is that my Sigmoid colon is blocked. It takes days for the Oregano Oil plus prescribed laxative to make its way pass the stricture. I'm concerned about Turp staying that long in the upper intestines and possibly getting in my lungs. Also, with this blockage what dosage would Bill recommend and any other advise. Thank God I have a surgeon who is working a little with me in case I perforate but knows zero about worms/parasites. My PC, I fired him, so don't a doctor so its all up to me and the expertise from someone like Bill or someone who has had the similar problem and I hope with good results. I'm open for any help. It takes so long for anything to pass through my intestines and I'm always very weak/fatigued and sick and think it might be the "die-off" and the toxins staying too long in the upper intestines. I have expelled a few worms but feel that possibly due to the length of time it takes for them to pass through many of them have died and disintegrated causing my weakness and feeling bad all the time.

I also have the beasts in my sinus and the Oregano Oil has seemed to help there and wonder if the Turp would kill them also? I don't intend to take both of the Oil and Turp together so need dosage what Bill would recommend for each. Thank You

I am 89, White female, prior to my parasite problems I weighed 139, my oncologist took note in a annual exam that I had lost 20 lbs and before things settled, had heart attack and stint within 2 wks when he saw my weight loss; have lost down to 92 lbs but have been able to keep 104lbs for the past 6 months but still have all the parasite problems with intestines and sinus.

I've been taking the gum spirits (1 teaspoon) every other day for four dosages, took 4 days off. Took it again for two dosages, ended up expelling a tapeworm, swiveled and rolled up the size of a golf ball. I just stared at it..not what I expected. My energy level is so much better, lungs feel cleaner. Can't tell me this stuff doesn't work. Sixteen years - 6 doctors told me it was my thyroid, yet none of the thyroid meds did anything for me.

I've been taking the 1 teaspoon dose. On my third dosage, though, I got the measuring spoons mixed up and not thinking I used a tablespoon of gum spirits. (I measured and wondered why there was so much turp left) Ended up taking more then a teaspoon but not quite the whole tablespoon. I ended up feeling a little drunk, but other then that, nothing terrible. I am continuing with the turp, but started a parasite cleanse and will do a liver flush. The turp also cleared up a patch of dried skin on my elbow.

I also mix the turp with peanut oil and use for aches and pains. I've given it to several people who swear by it.

I meant also to say that I cannot take the turp on sugar cubes or sugar. Chewing on the cubes is like chewing glass for me. I've been putting the turp into a small glass with some milk or Gatorade and just drink it down. I figure the sugar in that would carry it. I will be trying it with the castor oil but I have to put that in Gatorade too.....just can't stomach the straight sugar or castor oil.

G: Sorry to burst your bubble of successful treatment w/ the high probability that you have not removed the entire worm as they are like segment after segment up to several feet long depending on the type (likely beef or fish and not likely pork as they are usualy around only 6").

These tapeworms have monstrous heads w/ extensive teeth or suckers for burrowing into the intestines where next to nothing can remove them.

Using a combination of veg oil & Grapefruitseed extract applied rectally once or twice daily one day I felt a pull, pull in my lower back and then a pop. Several minutes latter I passed about 3-4 ft tapeworm. It wasn't until about 3 yrs latter that I killed what appears to be the entire worm by using pharmaceuticals like Albendazole, Fenbendazole, and Prazequantil. Same thing happened w/ the pull and snap and this time passed only a few 6" or smaller segments. But this time I can report the kind of improvements you have.

It is slightly possible that you have killed the entire worm (if it was indeed a tape, could be several pin worms), but not likely from what I've read the tapes are major problem. From what I understand, the drug Niclosamide is the single most effective against the adults.

I've started taking turpentine oil for parasites. Initially, I took it with sugar cubes, but it intently made my symptoms (especially the itching over much of the body) unbearable. Now I'm using it with jaggery, which is somewhat better, but I would really like to eliminate all sugars for now.

Could I take it with coconut oil? Castor oil has been mentioned but I really don't think I could get it down. And how frequently can I take it. Some people say every day for a certain number of days; others say every five days. It's really confusing.

I have parasites in my intestines. Can anyone advise how I should take the turpentine? When we were small, mom used to give us kids turpentine and sugar.

Some saturate a sugar cube in turps; then break it up and down it like a pill/s. Or simply take a teaspoon of sugar and saturate it; and then swallow. I personally think the method of initially combing the turps with some preferred vegetable oil (half-and-half), as I recall was first mentioned on this site by "Bill from the Philippines", is an excellent approach. I'd put the mixture in a bottle and take a half-teaspoon, or a little sip.

I did the turpentine parasite dosing, 1/2 tsp twice, with castor oil. This was over 2 weeks ago, but now I'm getting diarrhea. Not so unusual for me, but the smell is very odd. Kind of chemically? Is this normal?

Replied by Jim

Typically, diarrhea happens 12 to 24-hours after the triggering cause. Me, I'd look for something I ingested within that time-period as the culprit.

J: The Turpentine often passes in feces or urine which is not a problem per se. I have used T often over last couple yrs and while don't have the odor in feces do have it in urine and usually need to drink extra water to keep the Kidneys going.

E.C.'s Bill recommends Castor Oil with Turpentine for intestinal parasite removal. So, for paras outside the intestines you would not use the Castor Oil. But do drink extra liquids for the Kidneys.

What brand of 100% gum turpentine do you use? Do you need to do a warm enema everyday? Thanks for your help.

I feel like I'm having similar problems. My stomach feels much better. My eyes feel much better. But my left lung is very sore and I feel like there is an alien in there. When you say you expelled a tape worm, do you mean that you coughed it up? or did you poop it out?

Any advice you may to have is appreciated.

EC: The latter, for sure.

I too have cured hypothyroidism by ridding my body of parasites.

Dear Bill --- so here I have the treasure of Georgia turpentine. I have taken it once on a natural sugar cube without any feedback and once with two tblsp. castor oil - again nothing. The way you are taking it.

As a child, I could take one half cup of castor oil without any results. The problem was emotional. Later in life, Ayurveda saved me with Triphala which I am taking forever and it is fabulous as no more constipation for years. But now I have constipation so bad and I know it is because I take a small amount of rye bread, otherwise it makes me weak and trembling with any carbs. I am allergic to wheat. My body just shuts down. But rye is rough and dry. I am of the vata constitution.

I want to do parasite cleanse and am in a fix. Can you help? I am an avid follower of your posts. Thanks, Bill.

Namaste, Om

Hi Om...I think that you have several ongoing problems and these are: candida/bacteria problems, constipation(acid intestines) and insufficient digestion or inadequate absorption of nutrients into your body(underweight).

Here is what Ted from Bangkok has to say about curing constipation:

"The bowel issue is one of the most complex ones, but prebiotics have more effects on beneficial bacteria than the probiotics. The one thing that will help establish these is gum arabic, 4 grams blender mixed with 250 cc of water or hot water, until all gum arabic is dissolved.

Baking soda is the common remedy to relieve it. It also is found that getting enough water relieves constipation, especially by drinking enough water during the morning hours. The bowel movement requires basically hydraulic pressure to get the stools out and this is why having sufficient liquids is necessary. The slippage is also necessary along the intestinal tract such as alkalization, having sufficient potassium is the most common problem I have seen in people with constipation. As if there is this fear against the use of potassium. For people with normal kidneys this is no problem. Having the potassium requires to take regular over a month, if the remedy requires 1/2 teaspoon taken only at night, however if a person has low blood pressure, then must always be taking with sea salt, at least 1/4 teaspoon once or twice a day to keep the sodium and potassium balance. The antidote for too much potassium is simple, take 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt if potassium is causing problem, and the side effects will be relieved in 5 minutes. In fact the effects of any natural treatment for most disorders takes generally 5 minutes, such as heart problems, muscle pain, headaches, etc to be relieved except chronic constipation. I have seen a 19 year old girl with constipation taking potassium citrate take up to 1 teaspoon after meals three times a day to get her potassium to normal to cure her constipation. I have seen ICU patients take 1/2 teaspoon every hour throughout 24 hours to get?her blood potassium to normal. So potassium is somewhat as big a deficiency?as magnesium. Magnesium also helps with constipation, but taken in a much smaller dose, such as 8 drops two times a day, but in people with constipation it needs 15 drops three times a day, not to resolve the constipation but to resolve?a deficiency. The other common problem is B6 deficiency which leads to lack of stomach acid so take it three times a day."

EC Source: https://www.earthclinic.com/cures/constipation_questions.html#Question_4666

In short, Ted is advising that both potassium citrate (with sea salt as necessary) and magnesium chloride(as magnesium oil -- 15 drops 3 x per day) should be taken for constipation issues as well as B6. Since you are also vegetarian or vegan then I would also strongly advise that you take Vitamin B12 as well(at least 1000-2000 mcg per day).

Your underweight problems may also be caused by insufficient digestion due to low stomach acid and/or low levels of digestive enzymes. That's why you should perhaps consider taking betaine HCL together with pancreatin enzymes(that should also contain papain and bromelain enzymes) to ensure proper digestion occurs so that you can put on some weight. Ted also advises that you should alkalize every day to cure the acid intestine problem(which is also tied in with your constipation and candida issues).

When I had candida I was also heavily constipated and was only having one difficult and painful(dry) bowel movement a week. I cured that problem fairly quickly by alkalizing heavily every day(at least 3 times a day outside mealtimes), taking one tablespoon VCO twice a day with meals and by taking lugol's iodine on a daily basis also helped. I suspect that it was probably the potassium from the potassium iodide in the LI was what helped me alot here, which is yet another reason to supplement higher dose LI.

Take 1 teaspoon on 3 sugar cubes, then 3 tablespoons castor oil. Rice for carbs. Probiotics for gut. Look on you tube. Also 2 tablespoons organic apple cider vinegar with warm water at night and in morning will relieve constipation.
