My father in law has mesothelioma and is treating it naturally (without chemo). He recently had a bout with candida and did turpentine and it helped him immensely. Now he has a blood clot in his jugular and the Dr.put him on Xarelto. His candida has gotten worse since he had stopped it for a while and he wants to do the turpentine again. Does anyone know if that would hurt him? We can't find that answer anywhere.
Taking turpentine after or before you've taken advil is a bad idea.
My ex girlfriend took a small dose of terpentine of 20 drops with sugar cubes and just before she took that she took a couple advils (I think) and that had a very bad reaction. The two react with each other. I confirmed this with my nutritionist. She was in a lot of pain for half the day if not more.
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.
Hello Bill, I've seen many of your posts about turpentine. I am considering taking it with regard to multiple pain issues. I also have hepatitis-c and peripheral neuropathy...Will this bother either of my issues? My concern is... if it strips off paint from a wall, will it bother my myelin sheath? Thank you very much...

Has anyone heard of or tired a turpentine enema? I have not tried one. I am just very curious as I read about it in one of Bill's citations of Turpentine uses in the early part of the century. They used it for bad constipation.
BETTER BUT WITH SIDE EFFECTS
So I swabbed straight up turpentine, the fancy organic one in the little bottle, into my ears because they get itchy. They hurt soooo bad for about an hour. Like pressure like your ears are going to pop from a change in air pressure. Now a week or so later they are still itchy but it hurt so bad the first time I am afraid to do it again. It did clear my sinuses magnificently, though. It was almost worth it.
Better But With Side Effects
Turpentine in the Nose:
Use with caution and learn from my experience. I have used the turpentine in my sinus for sometime now. I slightly dilute it with water in the palm of my hand and standing up I snuff it into my sinus. It clears out any mucus and I believe it is even caring for the brain because evidently it penetrates the blood brain barrier; Therefore the biofilm melting property is quite health promoting.
Caution: I suspected Cytomegelo Virus (a herpes which can lead to Kaposi's Sarcoma ( it is considered incurable due to the biofilm coating)) I am interested in mechanizing a cure.
While lying down on my side I chose to snuff a single drop of the diamond G turpentine into my nostril. If it had not been so painful, it would have been comical. The turpentine entered my sinus but also the sinus above my eye.
Instantly; The mucus drainage was profound! Sneezing violent. Entire area around my eye was bright red as well as the eye. The deep cleansing produced sinus pain and some swelling of tissues. Copious water consumption was required to cope with the fluid transfer mechanism. (Pure water consumption in copious amounts is required in order to 'push out - replace' the contaminated fluids)
24 hours later, the left side of my head feels better than decades before now.
Will I do it again? ABSOLUTELY. I will DILUTE the turpentine, lay on the opposite side and smile as I visualize the destruction of all possible viruses. Probably in the future I will inhale the fumes from time to time. ME
Turpentine in the Nose
A doctor for NASA sent me a product. He said when they send astronauts into space they can't have them get sick. He said the germs that make people sick first incubate in the back of the throat where the nose and ears meet, where you can't reach gargling. His product was a small tincture, the instructions were to put drops in your nose so it will reach the place in the back of the throat. That was the best product. It cleared that space of mucus instantly. It wasn't for sale after I ran out I couldn't get any more.
After I started turpentine, I tried it in my nose. Now I know what the secret ingredient was that the product the NASA Dr used: turpentine, not even diluted. It works great.
Pure distilled "spirits" of turpentine is basically the refined sap from specific pine tree varieties. It's history of use goes way back to Babylon. It was commonly referred to as 'terebinthe' or 'terebinthine'. It was available OTC as terpin hydrate however codeine was added latter & prescription required. It was used by American natives & African slaves as a inexpensive & accessible remedy. I would not advise using hardware store varieties as they are adulterated with petroleum distillitates & the "pure gum spirits" may be contaminated with the herbicide paraquat which is toxic.
There is a Australian town whose residents used turpentine & subsequently the 'governors' added chemical toxins to prevent ingestion. I am sure that Earth Clinic is under the FDA microscope so I caution against references to a certain brand(s) who make their living on making pure spirits 'the old fashioned way'. One maker will not answer health questions due to this scrutiny by FDA. Please refrain from such questions & thus protect this valuable source.
Toxicity: most anything is toxic in large doses, such as water. The half-life of 'turp' is 25 hours approximately, so a safe time lapse between each single dose is about 5-days totaling 5-6 single doses over 1-month. Start low at 12 drops & work up to about 40 drops, all taken with 1/2 to 1-tbsp sugar. After this period, a monthly single maintenance dose may be taken if/when necessary.
As we all know, there is no single remedy & one size doesn't fit all. This site is experimental & for the dissemination of freely sharing ideas. There are no 'cures' until an autopsy is performed. Health begins in the gut & the mind will keep us well as stress is dis-ease.

The internal use of turpentine is extremely dangerous, as indicated by the sole source associated with the article promoting its use. That source is a published study regarding an infant who was killed by the parents internal administration of turpentine. As evidenced in this source, turpentine is only safe when applied externally (though it may still cause irritation). Internal use has been linked to kidney damage and a multitude of other health problems and has resulted in death in multiple instances. This article is putting lives at risk by encouraging the internal use of a known poison that has substantial evidence regarding its risks.
You are all fools!! Taking turpentine in any amount will end up killing you all! My God, really??? My nephew took it for a few days and it nearly cost him his life!!! I am a nurse, and if you take this crap you can be assured you will end up with kidney failure, if you don't die from a horrendous bleeding stomach ulcer first!!
EC: Perhaps, before insulting everyone who has successfully taken turpentine worldwide safely over the years, including some of Earth Clinic's top health contributors, you could instead provide important additional information such as what brand he took, how much he took in each dose, how he took it, and the state of his health before trying turpentine. That would be so much more helpful to all of us than name calling. Thank you.
Turpentine Side Effects
i have been taking turpentine for candida, leaky gut, and more. my body reacts differently to medication then most. I have been sick for 6 year and have been to doctor after doctor. no one could figure it out. I was on some pretty damaging medication. Every time I take turpentine I end up having major urinary tract infection symptoms. Do you know what could be causing that?
Turpentine Side Effects
Hi everyone, I would like to share my experience with turpentine. I've had severe Chronic Fatigue Syndrome for 15 1/2 years. Read about the turps recently and was excited to try it (I bought Diamond G Forest). I have been detoxing well for about 1 1/2 years now (using homeopathy, EAV and Quantum Indigo machine) and my die-off reactions are mostly gone when taking stuff, but the overall fatigue condition remains. I am pretty sure I have worms.
I took 1 teaspoon of turps with 1 Tablespoon of white sugar and was fine, no improvement or worsening. Then, 4 days later I was ready to take it again and a side-issue came up.
SIDE ISSUE: At the same time as the turps, I have been doing the Gubarev "Ropeworm Enema Protocol" for a couple of weeks, and both times I did the milk + salt enema a SERIOUS leg infection called "Erysipelas" resulted, caused by streptococcus bacteria. I have been diagnosed as having a major streptococcus gut bacteria overgrowth by my Doctor 4yrs ago. I used my natural homeopathic & herbal remedies to cure the first leg infection but didn't know the milk/salt enema had caused it. Then the next time I did it 2 wks later it happened again the same, so now I know the milk sugar fed the bad strep bacteria in the bowel and caused the leg infection. I was doing my natural remedies the same as before but thought it wasn't working (it actually WAS working but just takes a couple of days to go), so was starting to get panicky as I did NOT want to take antibiotics.
I decided to take the turps again to try to kill the bug in my leg, but because I was panicky and it was 4.30am, I thought I would take more than a teaspoon as that dose hadn't helped last time. I went off Jennifer Daniels dosing on herself of "7 sugar cubes caused a slight twitch", so I thought I'd do the 6 sugar cube equivalent of 2 tsp turps to 2 Tbsp sugar, as this hadn't caused any problem for her I assumed I would be fine too. I Was Wrong!!!
I started to get some of the most terrible scary symptoms I have ever experienced: delerium of the most extreme drunkenness, ataxia, slipping in and out of consciousness, racing high-speed thoughts like on drugs, sleeplessness. Then, 5hrs later, I vomited up my stomach contents, turps, and a ~15cm tapeworm. The previous drunk/drug symptoms then went away, but I kept feeling nauseous and vomiting for the next 3hrs. I still felt really sick and wasn't getting better from the vomiting and couldn't drink water, so I went to hospital in case I needed my stomach pumped.
Before I left, I started to feel muscle contractions of my lips & face. Then, on the way there over a period of 10 mins I became COMPLETELY PARALYSED and felt so totally ill. I thought I was going to die! I started slurring then my mouth paralysed as well so I couldn't talk. I then spewed up a last little bit, and within 5 mins could actually move my legs and walk into the hospital and move my hands a bit.
From then on I felt pretty much fine, but had a drip for 2hrs to rehyrate. That evening I did a cleansing water enema (as part of the ropeworm enema protocol) - this must have got the last of the toxins out. I had a good nights sleep of 8hrs and woke up automatically at 7am and felt great! I felt great all morning then at 2pm the old fatigue kicked in again. (This is coming from someone who normally needs 12-14hrs sleep, can't wake up in the morning and feels fatigued terribly.)
I thought the turps had caused my symptoms, but now I think it must be a die-off reaction of all the things living inside me making me ill. I will take the turps again soon but start on a tiny amount. (I know that the leg infection didn't cause the symptoms as I'd had it 2 wks before with no symptoms except the localized infection on leg area.)
Sorry this is so long, but I wanted to get across to everyone what can happen if you take too much at once. I am back to my normal condition now (fatigued) and successfully eliminated the leg infection. Good luck to everyone trying it and don't be put off by my story, rather use it as a lesson to be careful on dosing and that what is safe for one person is not necessarily safe for you, so I would start drop-wise and work up slowly.
Turpentine Side Effects
I need some help. Its my 3rd day trying turpentine *(diamond brand) and sugar for candida / everything that is blocking my health. I cannot tolerate the turpentine ingestion. After ingestion is ok - it's the actual ingesting part that I can't handle (hurts my throat and gagging / can't breathe because of the taste).
I have empty capsules and was hoping to put some brown coconut sugar along with turpentine in them and take it that way. I can add castor oil - but it will have to be in a capsule with the turpentine.
Will this be ok to try to ingest it this way? Is it important that it is white granulated sugar? or can it just be any kind of sugar (I prefer coconut organic raw if I have to eat straight sugar).

Turpentine Side Effects
Hi all! Love the abundance of information I'm getting from this website. I just wanted to go ahead and put in my little two cents. I followed Dr. Daniel's protocol strictly so that included restricting my diet for five days BEFORE and during the turpentine. Also making sure I have 100 percent PURE gum of spirits because she said the one at home depot may not be pure. (I bought mine off of amazon.) Also above all making sure to have three bowel movements every day before and during the turpentine regimen because all the parasites and candida need to EXIT the body when you are killing them off or else things can get worse. SO I made sure of all these things. I personally remember staying hungry on the restricted diet so I was pretty much getting a high dose to my blood stream when I first took it. That took it to my brain, and that fact leads me to believe that may have been the reason I felt homicidal the next couple of days. LIKE I literally wanted to kill people who pissed me off and I also had one or two thoughts that I, myself, wanted to die. HOW'S THAT for side effects? I BELIEVE it may have been the chemicals being released from my dying enemies that resided in my body influencing those thoughts. Just as they've been influencing my choice of food consumption for the past decade or more. We already know they can do that, why not this too? Cheers
