I bought the turpentine labeled Pure Gum Spirits... I saw the one that said 100% tree resin also. I decided that I would try a little bit in my bath water before I tried to ingest it. WHEEW~ the smell was pretty strong and it somehow did not strike me as a "natural smell" I changed my mind to even bathe in a little bit. I emptied the tub and noticed that my 100 year old cast iron porcelain clawfoot tub with some pretty awful mineral build up seemed to be looking a little better where I had splashed the turpentine.I grabbed some plain steel wool and went to work. I had tried all the stuff advertised for rust and stains and soap scum etc... etc.. and a whole bunch of home cleaners...including our friend vinegar.....but nothing worked like that straight up turpentine! ( Had to rinse it pretty good) BUT -- My tub looks fabulous!
It is a solvent so that makes sense! Thank you for helping me stumble onto this use for the turpentine. I still am going to wait for awhile before imbibing on it, and maybe I will order that organic brand from Georgia!

Does anybody know where can I get pure turpentine in Canada? All the shops I have found online are in the US and do not ship to Canada.
Hi Marcin...You can buy this brand of Pure Turpentine from any Home Depot store in Canada:
I've also just checked the store locator and there is a Home Depot near you in Brampton at 49 First Gulf Boulevard.
You can also easily buy pure turpentine made from Canada Balsam or Balsam Fir sold from all Acklands Grainger hardware stores in Canada -- including many AG stores in Brampton which you might know already:
Acklands Grainger - Pure Turpentine
In fact, Acklands Grainger's Bio-Pure Pure Turpentine brand is what Tony Pantelleresco(a Canadian) uses to show people how to supplement turpentine in this Youtube video:

Where to Buy: New Zealand
Hi there.. Does anyone from New Zealand know where to purchase 100% pure pine gum turpentine from? Researched for hours on the benefits from this substance and also Bill's post as well. Bunnings sells Gum Diggers turpentine the clear liquid.. read it on here some person from Aussie was trying it...
Where to Buy: New Zealand
I am trying to get Klean Strip kerosend but it is not available in New Zealand? Where could I buy some?
(San Fernando, Philippines)
Hi Sheryl...There is a form of Kerosene that is made in Australia that can be supplemented. Walter Last mentions that Digger's Low Odour Kerosene, an Aussie brand, is a safe and useful supplement which you might well be able to purchase in New Zealand, being such a close neighbour to Australia. See this article -- his recommendations on which forms of kerosene/turpentine to use is given lower down in this article:
So you might also be able to purchase Digger's Low Odour Kerosene, hopefully, at any hardware store or camping shop in your area.
Some further information which might help you-- Klean-Strip products like kerosene are also sold at Walmart and Home Depot stores worldwide.
Hi, old post I am replying to, but I am looking for a supplier of Gum Turpentine in NZ, can you advise of anyone?

Hello Leanne, I would be cautious with Turpentine. Fully check the "Web M/D Site" for information.
Just because it may kill parasites is not sufficient justification for taking something internally.
Anything that does such a good job of cleaning my paint brushes has to be suspect in my humble opinion!
M: Thanks for your previous informative post here on E.C., and no thanks for your present knee-jerk non-informative post on Turpentine. I have severe or hyperparasitosis and working on my 2nd quart of Turpentine all with good results, and to be exact I may not be alive today without T.
As for searching for T info, never trust one source. The main sources in the alt med community is Jennifer Daniels and Walter Last. After reading these, the next step is purchasing Pure Gum Spirits Of Turpentine ( which is a distilled product of Pine Trees with the chemical name, as noted from my current source
Hazardous Components (Chemical Name)
3. COMPOSITION/INFORMATION ON INGREDIENTS
<30.0 % ).
According to conventional authorities all about the globe, Turpentine is a hazardous chemical and warned not fit for human consumption, even though it has been and currently is used internally by many people across the planet with very little bad and mostly good effect.
Thank you Timh for your information on Turpentine. I am glad your health has improved. I have enjoyed your postings also! You may be fortunate to have a pure form of Turpentine in the USA from what I have heard, but maybe our version elsewhere in the World might not be quite so pure? One source of information that impressed me was found on the "Science-Based Medicine" (shock horror! ) website and was written by Scott Gavura on June 4th 2015 entitled: "Medicine does not come from the Hardware Store: Don't drink Turpentine". Seems I am not entirely alone on this one! I would not feel comfortable recommending consumption to anyone else.
Hi, I found Diamond G Forest Turpentine being sold on ebay in the UK and the seller sends it worldwide. It's sold in small 1 ounce bottles which is handy. I purchased some myself and the product was sealed, as described and the real deal. Been using it myself and it is organic, pure and I even like the taste :) - Search for 100% Pure Gum Spirits of Turpentine by Diamond G Forest on ebay.co.uk. I hope this helps. All the best
Hi Shereen and Leanne,
I got some from Bunnings "diggers pure gum turpentine". You can order it in if they don't stock it as most people buy the mineral turps. I have been taking it for almost a week and noticed a few good things re my body post-turps. I think this is what my body needed to kick start me back in to action again. I take it with the white sugar and it is very yummy! I was eating quite healthily pre the turps so if you're diet is not so healthy then Dr Jennifer suggests doing a cleanse first but it is up to you. If you're still not sure about ingesting turps then in my experience, I am still alive!!! It definitely is counterintuitive - sugar + turps!!!! Don't ask me why this works but it does.
Hope I was of service to you both!
In response to your comment on 11/21/16 Michael of New Zealand re the article by Scott Gavura. He states at the out set that he often receives hate mail accusing him of being a Big Pharma Schill. In his article he infers that statin drugs are quite acceptable. We have to be careful of people like him as there are many people who would look to him to be an authority on their health. He doesn't mention the thousands of people who die consuming prescription medications. They were following the advice of medically trained doctors. He, and your regular MD would probably pooh pooh Selenium for cancer, or borax for gout, or MMS for malaria etc etc because despite the numbers of people who have benefitted from these therapies, according to those who will not believe unless there is "scientific proof" they cannot possibly work. And then they write there articles with their hidden agendas and some readers accept it just like that. Anecdotal evidence carries no weight what so ever for them. So please be careful Michael - this is the information age and we owe it to ourselves, and just as importantly to others who may hear our words, to research and to question. Doctors invest so much time and money in their medical education, and it is perfectly understandable that they would come from a place of denial, and seek to condemn without investigation or personal experience that which contradicts and / or threatens what they have learned. I'm one of those who've come to the conclusion that MDs can be extremely useful in diagnosing conditions, and in the setting of bones but when it comes to prescribed medications, research, research and research. The ideal goal is to treat the cause, not the symptoms, and medically trained people are very often not in a position to assist you in this. There's so much out there, and it's places like this that can help you find answers
Good on you Timh. Your suggestion to not trust only one source is an excellent one. I've found it helpful to Google testimonials in regard to the condition in which I'm interested. That's how I've come across Selenium and Borax (Boron) and a number of other gems. It's hearing / reading others experiences ("Ordinary people")which can lead us to the appropriate path.
All the best to each of you. Regards, John.
I learned about turpentine from my father who said he was given it as a child in a spoon. He also said he was given a teaspoon of kerosene with a sugar cube in it whenever there was any runny noses afoot. He said this wiped out the cold. Mind you he also said he took the sap directly from the pine tree in a pail we're they later distilled it and then ingested. He's in his 80's. These days were given lots of things to ingest like fluoride which is considered a halogen which has some not so nice effects and we don't Bat an eye.
Hi, I used Turps before and loved it. I was kind and gave it to people that needed it and now I can't find any more. I am in New Zealand and got mine from a supplier in Canada. Seems I can not find this supplier anymore. I am gutted. I got some turps from another place in NZ but it is in a metal bottle but it does not smell the same than the first. Do you know where I can get some, many companies do not want to ship to NZ. Any advice will help where I can find some of the good stuff please. Kind Regards Martha
Hi Martha - Have you tried art supply stores for pure gum turpentine? It would be more expensive but I imagine it would be a higher quality than the what you get in hardware stores.
Here is an example (you may want to call them to see if it is pure gum turpentine with no additives):
If not, they may know a source for New Zealanders. Good luck!
(Brampton, Ontario - Canada)
This is product of Australia's company here in Canada, and the product name is "Bio-Option, Pure Turpentine and can be found in any Home-Depot store. Price is around $11.00 Canadian dollars. Excellent quality - pure 100%. I try myself with excellent results.
Hey Steve, have you happened to try the Diamond G Forest turpentine from the States before? If so I'm curious as to how the taste and smell of the Bio-Option compares to the Diamond G Forest one.
If you are still using the Bio-Option turpentine and know others who have used the Bio-Option turpentine with no issues (other than the expected Herxheimer reactions), please let me know. I was looking to source the Diamond G Forest turpentine, but shipping and customs charges is a blockade right now.
Thanks in advance!
Recochem's turpentine changed the labels/branding from Bio-Option to SOLVABLE as is now available at HomeDepot and Canadiantire. Earlier in the year I started with Recochem's turpentine for a few days but got cold feet and ordered 16 Oz of Diamond G. There are folks on this forum against using Recochem's.
I can tell you Recochem's turpentine is very fragrant, it smells like what you would expect from turpentine. My wife complains I stink up the kitchen but she has a sensitive nose. The turpentine burps and after-taste is way more noticeable. Diamond G is very pure and gentle in comparison, you can hardly smell it, just a minor after-taste. It was a surprise to me the big difference.
Diamond G is from slash pine trees from Georgia and is the traditional fire distilled turpentine
Recochem's is the by-product of the kraft pulping process, it is a sulfate turpentine.
Is this good or bad, I don't know. Would like to know.

Hi, I've been a sufferer of a severe candida infection for many years now. Just recently it has come to my attention that taking small doses of pure gum turpentine can eradicate candida in many cases. I'm dying to try this! However, where I live (thailand) there seems to be no pure gum turpentine anywhere. I've found a small bottle labeled just turpentine and nothing else except Chinese letters that no one can read. What should I do? I'm tempted to get this bottle and try it, any ideas? Any informed opinions? Greatly Appreciated, thanks.
I'm very interested in pursuing a turpentine solution to my candida problems, which have haunted me for years. Now I'm living in NongKhai, northeast thailand, a very beautiful place, but also a very isolated one. In the last week I've searched all the hardware/painting stores within a 15 kilometre radius and the only turpentine I could fine is this bottle. In the second photo you'll notice the percentages written on the label, apparently white spirits is the 95% and turpentine is the 5%. What do you think, should I give this bottle a try? Might it be safe? Appreciate your help, Jack
(New York, US)
So you want to drink the turpentine.. Can someone please tell me the safety of this? I can't understand some of the natural remedies although I won't question them, but some days when I read them I cringe.. Like Borax , turpentine, are these things safe? does one drink them??
excuse my ignorance...
I do love EC though and thank you for the valuable info...
(Hope, Bc Canada)
100% pure gum turpentine. This comes for Georgia, US. This is what I ordered and received. On their website you can see how this is won from cultured trees and shipped worldwide.
I used a questionable product before and even though I phoned the manufacturer, got a vague reply. With dire results.
The pure gum 100% product from Georgia, US, is the one to use. Look it up online.
I hear what you are saying! I often pretty hesitant to try something new with health and will have to read about it many, many times before I jump in to it, especially when it is labelled as something that is not to be ingested! I, too, have thought, “Turpentine? Are you crazy?” “Borax? Isn't that poisonous?” etc.
But often the more I look in to it, the more sense it makes. The turpentine that Om mentions, the organic stuff made in GA, is distilled from pine rosin. It is a completely natural product. It reminds me of how my sons made maple syrup in the spring by tapping our maple trees and boiling off the water. They took a part from the tree and processed it and made a great and nutritious food! So, I bought some of the organic turpentine from Ga. It smells quite amazing. Very “piney.” But, true to my nature, it sat for months without me even trying it. I had no specific need for it, but just wanted it on hand to try when I got brave enough. I have used it topically a couple of times for joint pain. I am currently using it to worm my goats since nothing else natural or otherwise has worked. So far, so good.
Regarding Borax…it is a natural product mined from the earth, like salt.
Here is a quote I love:
“Poison is in everything, and no thing is without poison. The dosage makes it either a poison or a remedy.” ~ Paracelsus
Taking a ton of borax would be a bad idea, and so would taking a ton of salt. Likewise, lobelia is an amazing herb. But if too much is taken, it causes vomiting.
I believe that people are taking borax and turpentine in very small quantities, measured by drops or ¼ teaspoons. Drinking them in any large quantity would not seem wise.
Borax is sodium tetraborate decahydrate – or Na2B4O7 • 10H2O. Sounds rather scary, except, that when you break it down you get, Sodium, Boron, and H2O.
I am just beginning to use these two things myself, so I have no remedies or successes to share yet, but hope to at some point.
The hydrogen peroxide inhalation therapy sounded rather scary to me for a while. But then I realize you are dealing with hydrogen and oxygen. Things we already breathe. I have used it in a nebulizer recently with shocking success.
Anyway, some skepticism is wise, I think. It makes sense to read and study and ask questions. Thanks for asking valid and good questions. I will look forward to hearing some other thoughts on the matter!

Hello Jack...I'm afraid that I can't make head or tail of the turpentine images that you show because I can't read Thai.
I live in the Philippines and I also supplement turpentine regularly and the stores here also have very questionable sources of turpentine.
So I improvised.
The other thing is that inflammable products like Georgia Diamond G organic gum turpentine are not generally allowed to be shipped out of the US. I checked. But you will be able to order and ship turpentine from an ebay.com UK source because they will ship turpentine abroad from UK. Just type "Turpentine UK" into the ebay.com search box and the first few results will be from UK vendors. That's one option for you.
For myself, I simply improvised as I've said. Essential pine oil made from the Scots Pine is what I use and supplement. This stuff is triple distilled and so its quite strong. This form of pine oil might also be obtainable in Thailand from a health shop, for instance, in Bangkok -- not sure about the Thai provinces though.
I don't know whether you know, but you can also use ordinary lamp kerosene -- this is equivalent to turpentine. To help you to decide, here is a more expert and informative article by Walter Last, an Aussie who more thoroughly describes the many other different forms that you can use and supplement that are derived from pine trees, petroleum products and coal products. All are produced from various distillation techniques. See this link for more information:
Kerosene -- The Universal Healer
If you are also suffering from candida, then you will be able to buy most of the nutrient chemicals advised on this site in Bangkok. Just tell the Bangkok taxi driver to go to the big winged angel monument(Democracy Monument??) near the palace and get out there. Then look for a chemical store called Vittyasom Ltd. This place has all manner of chemicals, including Borax and Lugols Iodine (upstairs in the doctor's pharmacy they make the Lugols iodine up for you while you wait). This is my own personal source for cheaper but effective nutrient chemicals that I use.

Hi Mama and thank you
I have a better understanding of what these things are... you surely wrote out a great description and I so appreciate it. Maybe it is the names that throws me off. Borax and turpentine.. I keep thinking it's what takes paint off things...LOL
Anyway; I take a few things but I would love to know as a 60 year old woman to go as affordable as I can what would be the most ideal supplements or herbs to have quality of life and try and stay healthy being a strict budget....besides a good diet and water and exercise... like what supplements do we need and what can we do without. I do this by trial and error and try and stay alkaline and of course watching my blood pressure.. but I mean if I could get away with using lemons I would save a ton of money.........lol...
Dear Mama to Many, I too have been skeptical of the posts I've read about borax, turpentine and peroxide. At the same time, I suspect the need for these remedies could be very well caused by something in our food supply that is acceptable by many. I learned this, piecemeal, by the process of elimination for over twenty years.
I've had multiple head and neck injuries, beginning with emotional and physical abuse by my mother, automobile accidents and horses. One of the vertebra in my neck is pressing against my spinal cord. I've had arthritis and degenerative disk disease of my neck, back, spine and big toe diagnosed. I had sciatica.
I was in a coma for a month and my communication skills are poor. I felt like I needed to give you this background because of things I've posted here.
I have learned that any pain I encounter is always caused by some hidden source of MSG I've ingested. When I have hay fever or asthma, I can look back at what I've eaten and always find the source that has weakened my system. At the same time the fruits and vegetables, that are supposed to make and keep us healthy, have been genetically modified in one way or the other and cannot provide the assimilation we expect. "Organic" is no longer safe and fresher is not better. True, everyone is going to react differently because no one eats identical when pregnant. The way our systems develop will not be identical because MSG crosses the placenta. (Intern. J. Neuroscience, 1984, Vol. 23, pp. 117-126)
For me the culprit is the flowing agent in salt. Through years of weeding out the things I found out were causing me problems...this tiny amount of a substance is what caused me so much pain and breathing difficulties. Flowing agents are in more than we can keep tabs on, but what is in our common table salt, I believe, is the root of many ailments. Very few are considering the binders, fillers and capsules used in many vitamins, supplements or medications. The majority of these things are "manufactured" from plants that have been genetically modified. What is advertised as "vegetable" is more than likely from corn or soy. I'm not in pain as my x-rays, CT's or MRI's indicate I should be.
I'm just sharing what I know has happened to me. The more that man fools with the food to make it drought and disease free, there seems to be more need for medications that are making things worse because long term studies cannot be conducted...just a quick fix for any problem without thinking about long term consequences. I watch a lot of news and undercover investigations that alerted me to what is happening in the world. The commercials in between were about "new ailments" needing new medications that had more side effects than the reason for taking the medication. It's been a long journey and I have learned much.
I read my Bible every day and I see prophecy being fulfilled...as many have seen for generations. We are closer, now, to the end of all things than our great-grandparents. 1 John 5:19 I hope I've made some sense to you and hopefully correct any way I might have offended you. KT

Hi Steven...You should be able to obtain essential pine oil off internet sites like ebay or amazon without much trouble. That's how I obtained my own turps or pine oil supply that I have been using regularly for the last 3 years. This essential pine oil form is always pure and is usually triple distilled. I live in the Philippines and it was the only form of turps that I could get because, generally, in some countries like the US inflammable liquids like kerosene or turpentine are banned from shipment abroad. Or it will cost you an arm or a leg due to shipping safety requirement costs. I've been using the essential pine oil form for three years now and I'm quite happy with it -- it's very effective. You might even be able to purchase essential pine oil from a health shop in Chiang Mai.
Kerosene is virtually the same as gum turpentine and just as effective as turpentine regarding its medicinal qualities and components but is harder to get. In the old days they used just the lamp oil form of kerosene but now there are so many different types of kerosene it can be quite bewildering and confusing. The rule that I would always go by would be to only use kerosene that is a pure distillate that has no additives and which fals within thedistillate range of 100 C to 200 C. My own personal preference would perhaps be to use kerosene in the distillate range of 100 C and 150 C -- the same lighter kerosene form that Paula Ganner used as an all-round cure-all so successfully in Europe.
Avoid using Paraffin USP oil unless you want a laxative -- this a British standard and is a much thicker oil with a much higher distillate temperature thus containing different components and properties to either kerosene or turpentine and so it is not the same. Also I would definitely avoid using the blue or pink paraffin forms.
More info for you on turpentine and kerosene here.

Hi Bill, I am in the middle of Dr Daniels Candida Cleanse protocol. I was disappointed that she would not answer any questions without paying her a monthly fee. She is no doubt a brilliant lady but not as generous with her time as you are. â€¨I was wondering if you would comment on her protocol. For example she says only use sugar with the turpentine and NOT honey. She also says no oils, even in a salad dressing. No nuts, no seeds, yet she says to drink 1/4 cup of soaked flax seeds What do you think, Bill? Your response would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.
P.S. I have your book.

Have you tried an art store? I bought an 8-ounce bottle for about $10.00. It is from a Quebec company called Demco (pure spirits of gum turpentine). I've only used it topically on my husband's mysterious skin rash. It helped dry it out. Haven't tried taking it internally yet. The art store may be able to direct you to another source ... good luck!

Hi folks, I have been using the Diamond G Forest brand of turpentine for candida and intestinal parasites and seemingly having great success with just one teaspoon at a time with both castor oil and brown unrefined sugar (on separate occasions). From what I have read, the sugar technique is good for tackling the candida in the bloodstream and the castor oil technique is best for tackling the candida in the intestine. Below I have detailed my approach which combines both techniques on various days throughout the week.
- To remove Candida from the bloodstream
> Use with sugar on an empty stomach - the sugar acts a s the bait
- To remove Candida from the intestinal tract
> Use with castor oil or coconut oil with meals - the meal brings candida out to eat
> When biofilms break down through using Turpentine or Rock Rose (Cistus Incanus) tea, they release the toxicity & heavy metals. You therefore need to use a ‘Clean Up' agent to soak up the toxins like activated charcoal, bentonite clay / green clay. Below is the protocol for how to use it:
All cleansing agents should be taken on an empty stomach, about 1 hour after consuming the turpentine with sugar on an empty stomach, and about 2-3 hours after consuming turpentine with castor oil and a meal.
To support general cleansing it is often useful to take some clean-up agent every day, even on those days that you do not take turpentine.
Charcoal dosage is 1-2 or 3/4 of a Teaspoon.
Use enema's to keep the colon clean and use Triphala (Ayurvedic fruit combination) as a laxative to keep bowls moving.
The protocol can be done two or three times a week. Jennifer Daniels recommends twice but some people recommend more depending on the severity of condition. (starting with 4 days in a row in the first week for a powerful kickstart)
Candida resides more in the intestines so the castor oil with turpentine is best for removing it from the intestines as the castor oil spreads out and covers the intestines whereas the sugar technique quickly goes in to the bloodstream where candida is less prevalent / present.
Monday: Turp (1 teaspoon) + Castor Oil (1 tablespoon) (before a meal)
Wed.: Turp (1 teaspoon) + Sugar (1 tablespoon) (on an empty stomach)
Friday: Turp (1 teaspoon) + Castor Oil (1 tablespoon) (before a meal)
Saturday & Sunday off for a rest / break from it. Castor oil also acts as a great laxative to keep the bowls moving to expel the candida and toxins released.
I found my Diamond G Forest turpentine on Ebay.co.uk in little small 1 ounce bottles which is probably how and why they send it worldwide. I told my brother in australia and he has ordered some from the same source recently (although waiting to hear if he received it yet as I haven't spoke to him)
I hope this information is of some use and help. I too am very skeptical about ingesting something like turpentine but extensive research showed me that it is effective and has been used dating way back in time. At the end of the day, the organic and pure version is simply an essential oil and we also know that various other parts of the pine tree are extremely beneficial for human health so it doesn't surprise me that this product is effective for a multitude of health problems.

I am keen to find a UK source of 100% pure gum spirit of turpentine. I have bought the Mylands brand but am not sure it is really 100% pure. I then found a source of turpentine essential oil but am worried this is not the same thing and is not going to work or be safe to ingest? Any advice from anyone re: a UK safe source would be much appreciated. I have candida issues. Who hasn't!
Hi, I'm trying to find a cure for what I think is a mycoplasma infection infection bowel and bladder. I'm too scared to use the borax. Re kerosene vs turps...and making sure its pure can anyone point me in the direction of a uk supplier please? Seems a lot of you are in the States. Also it seems that most of you are taking turps not kerosene but a lot of the research I've found points to kerosene...which I think is paraffin in the UK...why?
S: From personal experience, Turpentine is not particularly effective against Mycoplasma but Borax definitely is.
May I make a few suggestions? First do some alkalizing remedies with either Baking Soda or B.S. plus ACV. Two of the most effective natural remedies for UTI/Bladder is Cranberry and D-Mannose. Dr Christopher's Kidney/Bladder herbal combination is effective.
Back to the Mycoplasma. The most active places for M. infection is lungs and joints, and in some severe cases the Liver.
Back to Borax. As an introduction, try taking footbaths a few times weekly before retiring by adding a few spoons of Borax & Epsom Salts to the footbath. There is absolutely no bad side effects from these and the benefits are numerous.
As for Turpentine, I have been using a quart can purchased from a local hardware & home store. Read the label carefully & fully for no additives whatsoever; it should say "pure gum turpentine". I currently take about 2-3 doses per wk for chronic infections with good results.

Hi Emma...I've been using the essential pine oil (from pinus sylvestris) for the last 3 years on a regular basis and it seems to be fine. My essential pine oil is pure and triple distilled. It's all I can get shipped to the Philippines and I'm happy with it. Most brands of turps will not ship from amazon or ebay because it is inflammable.
Myland's pure gum turpentine should also be OK to supplement -- just make sure that no other synthetic oils have been added to it. Just check the back label of your brand to make sure its pure gum turpentine.
Hi. Try baldwins.
White Tongue, Seborrheic Dermatitis
Hi! I have been taking diluted turpentine (with olive oil) for 2 weeks. Unfortunatelly my tongue is still white and my seb derm is worse than ever. What can I do?
I don't know anything about your ailment- but if I were you- I'd look up the doctor 'Jennifer Daniels' in regards to turpentine...she says take it with sugar. Everyone I've ever read of who has had success has taken it with sugar- because its the SUGAR that the parasites are drawn to to eat and they get the turpentine WITH it and it kills them. They don't come for olive oil. ALL sicknesses are parasites whether or not anyone wants to believe they have parasites- I can tell you right now that everyone in the world has them- to one degree or another.- whether microbes, bacteria or any other name- they are all parasites and parasites love sugar they can't resist it. They smell the turpentine before you even get it past your lips and they steer clear- they're not stupid...but when sugar is taken with it they KNOW its laced with turpentine but they STILL can't resist and it does kill them. These things are what Jennifer Daniels has said in her interviews and pod casts.
(TEN MILE, TN)
VICKY, ORH here, I too am an admirer of Dr. Daniels, and have followed her since she began her transition from an allopathic doctor to an integrative doctor. She learned about natural cures from her patients who were reared by poor farm parents who had to use what was available and passed this knowledge down. My dad would be 106 and he related to me how his family used turpentine, kerosene, sassafras root, honey and such for their ails. You know that they took Dr Daniels medical license for using these products and she is now in Panama. The problem is that her practice is pro-trade as Slave Medical Cures and that is a misnomer, just like the term, Soul Food, is a misnomer. All Southern poor people used the same cures and ate the same food. History tends to get revised over time.
