Hi Bill, thanks for your good work for humanity. I have come to know turpentine recently after I bought and read your book Candida killing so sweetly. I have an autistic kid who is 17 years old. can you please let me know the turpentine protocol for autism. Thanks
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.
I just wanted to say Bill does such a wonderful job helping people. What a thorough answer you gave this woman, and everyone else. God bless you for taking the time to help these total strangers.
Hi Kristen, I completely agree with your comment. Bill is always prompt to reply to queries and offers EC readers full and free use of his extensive research and studies. It's nice of you to note that too! We are a very lucky bunch of readers.
Greetings All, I am a mom of 4 beautiful children and we are all in a health crisis. I've been reading about parasites and I know this to be the culprit. My 3 year old has already had her adenoids removed. I have refused the doctor to take out her tonsils, which are huge. Also, her belly is dissented and she craves sugar..I know that there is a better way. I'm not sure of the doses I should be using. Can you please enlighten me on this topic.
Children are notorious for housing all types parasites. Those at highest risk have pets indoors. It is very important to keep pets dewormed –Fenbendazole is a favorite broad-spectrum parasiticide.
Your local health food store has herbal de-wormers (Garlic, Oregano, Black Walnut Hulls, Wormwood, and Clove are favorites) which may be sufficient for the children.
Turpentine is known especially for fungal issues but is also somewhat effective for certain parasites like tape, round, and flatworms.
Hi Saquita…I’ve been helping a group of parents with autistic children and they have been using turps to good effect for their kids. The dosage for a 3 y o would be between 1/4 and 1/2 tspn of turpentine taken together with a teaspoon or two of castor oil. This protocol should be used only twice a week.
I’ve also discovered that using castor oil with turps is a key factor in the protocol. The turps will kill all manner of pathogens and parasites but will not harm the beneficial gut flora. The castor oil is necessary because it helps to spread the turps throughout the whole area of the intestines for a better and more thorough all-round effect.
I think that perhaps your child’s gut may be overrun with pathogens and so the turps/castor oil would be a good protocol to follow.
Other protocols that you can also investigate and consider for your child are supplementing Boswellia(Frankincense) and/or undecanoic acid(which is derived from castor oil). Frankincense is called shallaki in Ayurvedic medicine and they use it widely in Ayurveda for gut problems as well as for arthritis.
There was also a mother in the autistic parents group who successfully and completely healed her child back to normal(according to her ATEC scores). One of the child’s main anti-parasitic protocols was taking cinnamon, clove, raw garlic and tumeric mixed with ghee or clarifed butter several times a day with food. This protocol kills both parasites and pathogens. The key point in this protocol was that she used ghee — a saturated oil — as the carrier medium.
Many people miss the importance of taking nutrients in the best way possible by using the correct carrier medium. Notably she took all those herbal ingredients mixed with ghee because all the active ingredients within the herbs/nutrients themselves were probably oil soluble and not so soluble in water. That’s why she was so successful with this protocol. You could also probably use coconut oil as a carrier substitute for the ghee. Virgin coconut oil also kills a wide variety of enveloped pathogens as well.
Also please be aware that if your child has a widespread gut infection and takes the turps/castor oil protocol then she will probably suffer a Herx or die-off reaction with accompanying strange or hyper behaviour. After a widespread pathogen/parasite kill in the gut, with consequent temporary release of further poisons into her gut(from the killed pathogens/parasites), these poisons will be temporarily absorbed into her blood which may perhaps cause some strange or hyper behaviours. This is normal and unavoidable and should abate after a short while after her liver eventually removes these die-off poisons from her blood.
Regarding your daughter's swollen belly; I accidentally caused my granddaughter's distended belly by insisting on feeding her oatmeal with breakfast. I have a zeal about feeding kids real foods while they are in my care and I thought oats had a part in that mix. For her, they didn't. She would return home to her microwave meals and her belly would go flat again. Although you are probably right, I just wanted to add that you might have a food allergy on your hands. ~With best wishes that you find your answer.
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.
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:
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.
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.
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).
Thank you so much for your detailed explanations. That is very helpful!
I also appreciate the information about Bovine Colostrum. I will have to learn more about that!
I can find sodium thiosulfate on internet according from your book. Info. are as below;
Sodium thiosulfate 10% (w/v)
contain – sodium thiosulfate pentahydrate(10102-17-7)
Assay. 9.95-10.05% (w/v)
traceable to Nist SRM 136
For lab use only.Not for drug, food or household use.
made in USA ( Brand –RICCO )
Is it safe for candida?
Hi Marcus…The 10% Sodium Thiosulfate you have bought should be fine to use internally because its lab grade. But, as Ted from Bangkok also recommends, ordinary sodium thiosulfate(ST) bought from an aquaculture shop should also be fine to use(and its much cheaper). The aquaculture ST is mainly used to remove chlorine from fishtank water to help protect the fish and keep them healthy.
In case you believe that 10 %ST bought from an aquaculture shop is not as good or as pure as lab grade, please remember that fish are far more sensitive to chlorine and heavy metal poisoning than humans. So this fact proves that the purity of aquaculture grade ST is quite sufficient for us humans. I’ve been using aquaculture grade ST for detoxing for about the last 9 years and it has worked well without any problems at all. Just trying to save you some money here because lab grade ST is usually more expensive than aquaculture grade ST.
Thank you thank you thank you for posting this! I have been reading, studying and taking notes as I get ready to embark on my candida cleanse. Planning to start my first turp / castor oil flush next week… and had no idea that it would leave behind heavy metals. CHLORELLA is absolutely essential for all of us who will be using this protocol! Hopefully many other will read your post and benefit. Zeolites are great for absorbing heavy metals as well… so I will take that as well.
Your info on DHA is also very appreciated and will start that tomorrow! Can't thank you enough!
Hi – thank you for this fascinating site, and for the protocol information 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.
Bill, I have ordered your book, as I wait, what are your thoughts about this protocol for a dog with chronic itching And smelly yeasty body odor.
The pet was rescued, I suspect given up because of these skin problems. He smells again a few hours after Ted's mange bath and chews so much his legs get infected so he needs antibiotics which kill his good gut bacteria.
Your turpentine then iodine protocol sounds like the answer. I saw a post where a woman gave it to a sheep with great success. The dog is 70 lbs. so sweet and kind.
After much study I see symptoms of candida.
I am feeling so grateful to have found these posts written by you. I am currently following Dr Daniels Candida cleansing regime prior to taking turps. Since finding out so much more in the last week about Candida symptoms, effects etc I now suspect that my 3 1/2 yr Old may have Candida &/or parasites. I have had his stool tested which came back negative but I still question. He does crave sweet foods. He is the 3rd of 3 children. Since his birth he has always had a very strong presence/will & was very high needs as a baby. He is incredibly articulate & started talking very early. His behaviour swings from being as sweet as pie & super sensitive to angry/frustrated outbursts with punching & charging like a bull. He never throws tantrums ie kicking or screaming) & never head bangs etc but he's definitely on a constant roller coaster. He's is very challenging to manage. His diet is approx 80% organic with loads of greens & veges at least 2x daily & some fruit, only ever minimal amounts of maple syrup, honey, dried fruit. Minimal dairy. Water only. He does eat approx 1 piece of wheat bread/day. He eats organic pasture fed meat, pre sprouted grains ie quinoa, Brown rice etc. He has never been immunised or had any antibiotics etc. I suspect Candida as with the knowledge I now have I have most likely had systemic Candida for many years & question if this was passed on to him. I am considering starting him on your protocol recommended for children. First I would like to try & prepare him in a similar way to myself to try & prevent/minimise die off. Alongside dietry restrictions & increased water would you also recommend taking Lugols 5% as well as spirulina once he starts the turps? How about B vits? I hav a very good one that he likes. I am having smoothies containing psyllium husks & pre soaked linseeds which may well be suitable for him. He already has at least 2 bowel movements/day.
Are there any other recommendations that you might have? Your feedback would be so greatly appreciated. With warmth & gratitude from New Zealand. Huia (&Tiki)
I am a user of petroleum (ordinary one). It contains benzene, which causes a cold feeling after the chest (like feeling intense cold after eating a hot Candy f.e fisherman's friend) A very unpleasant feeling. To take this feeling away is to drink 1 cup of chichorei coffee a week. Chichorei is the penne (root) of chichory.
About the dog who smelled, had yeast, and chewed his feet…… my dog shed bad and chewed feet. Horrible sores. Cure I found was expensive dog food, omega 3 oils, probiotics and Dinovite, a supplement I buy online. Raw food. Fish. His hair is so much thicker and he no longer chews his feet. In 2 months he is cured. It costs a lot more money but he is healthy now.
I gave our dog brewer's yeast and his coat came back so pretty and he healed quickly. My son was so pleased that he offered to pay me for the whole bottle.
