Hi. I've read everything I can find on turpentine, and really think it will help me. Thank you to everyone who has written of their experiences – it is so helpful.
I contacted Diamond G Forest Products, as they seem to provide the best turpentine. I was told that they don't ship to England. I have managed to obtain an alternative, but am not sure about the quality.
Is there anybody in the USA who would be interested in buying a can for me, and posting it out to me? I will of course pay for this.
Carol: Search the Ebay pages and you should find a product of god quality and shipping details are provided by seller. Here is the page:
Let us know of any progress.
Hi Carol! I actually ordered turpentine from diamond g forest turpentine and am taking it myself. It is a huuuuge difference in the canned stuff from the hardware store and I would be willing to help you get some
Hi Derrick. Please help me get some of the better grade turpentine.
I am in need of some quality turpentine-I found the mylands one-http://www.amazon.co.uk/Mylands-Pure-Gum-Turpentine-Litre/dp/B00ECBPAPS/ref=sr_1_1/278-4128745-6314034?ie=UTF8&qid=1420226113&sr=8-1&keywords=turpentine+gum but I am not sure if it's as good as diamond g forest ones. If there's more people who want from Europe maybe we can order together and get a discount on the shipping (since I assume it's huge since it's such a long way). I actually created a group on fb-turpentine so if you want to talk more or post stuff you discovered about turpentine you are welcome to join: https://www.facebook.com/groups/748253278586345/
Greetings Andreea, I have researched Mylands turpentine and have found that it is good quality and suitable for internal use.
Turpentine in its pure form is just essential oils of pine and should smell just like that. Look for small bottles like at a craft store (the best I have found). Painters use turpentine for thinning and I've read on several forums their frustration with quality and not being able to find the real thing anymore. You will be hard pressed to find anything in a can that is pure and can be taken internally, regardless if it says pure gum spirits on the outside. Be careful as I tried this in the beginning and just the smell caused me to get very ill. This works, that is why it is difficult to find and is considered taboo by dr's. If we can cure ourselves we don't spend hundreds of thousands on chemo.
Can you suggest a quality brand of essential oil of pine to aid in parasite/candid cleanse?
Carol – I see your message from early 2014 regarding getting turpentine sent to you in England. I'm hoping you've gotten something set up by now. If not, I can certainly help.
Diamond G Forest Turpentine not available in the UK
Hi Carol. Did you get sorted with some? Like you, all my researches lead me to believe this is the best but how to get some in the UK.
Mylands appears to be good but is it as good as the Diamond stuff? I am not sure.
Any advice welcomed – thanks
If you bath in the turpentine, make sure to use only a tsp or so. It burns your hoohah!
Have you tried Amazon? I bought it on there. I'm not sure if you can in Europe.
Hi Carol. I'm newbie on site, (joined today)
re your query on getting Diamond G pure Gum Turpentine sent to EU (& UK). I had the same problem some time back. But now Diamond G have come to an arrangement with the PTB to allow shipping to EU/UK. I jusdt oredered and paypalled 24 1oz bottles, the largest size they are permitted to ship (email copy below)
Jan 18 at 11:14 PM David,
Thanks for contacting us! We would be happy to ship our turpentine to you in France. Since the last time we corresponded, we have negotiated a shipping arrangement with FedEx. Allow me to explain.
Because turpentine is a flammable liquid, we must follow very strict guidelines when shipping it, especially internationally. We cannot ship our turpentine internationally in any container larger than a 1 oz. bottle without incurring a Dangerous Goods Surcharge by our carrier. For this reason, we have a developed an international package that maximizes the quantity we can ship for the international shipping rate charged by our carrier. The rate for shipping this international package to you is as follows:$59.99 … 24 one-ounce bottles of 100% Pure Gum Spirits of Turpentine$42.28 … shipping via FedEx International Economy$102.27 … TOTALAny duties, taxes, or fees imposed by your country's government are your responsibility as well.We can ship any of our other products (soap, salve, rosin, etc.) to you in any quantity at very reasonable rates. Only the turpentine is a flammable liquid.
If you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact us. If this price quote meets with your approval, simply contact us, and we will send you an electronic invoice that you can pay with either a Paypal account or a credit/debit card.Thanks again! Julie Griner
Diamond G Forest Products, LLC ***************** Shipping cost is very heavy, but the product is the best(IMO) regards david
If your ordering from outside the EU, the tax and duties can end up being more than the actual cost of the product. Within the EU there are many suppliers. I got my last batch of Turpentine from Baldwins http://www.baldwins.co.uk/?gclid=CLmwia6ficsCFbYW0wodO_8E6w and found it to be of good quality. Also a superior certified Organic Turpentine can be bought from https://www.nhrorganicoils.com/products.php?id=12514
Pure Gum Turpentine can be bought at Baldwins in the UK. http://www.baldwins.co.uk/baldwins-turpentine-bp-gum-turpentine
HI U LISA, , , , , , , , , , this is probably the best folks to get your turpentine products. All should bookmark this site. South Georgia and the Fla Panhandle was where our naval stores were located in the early days of our nation.
Hi Carol, I'm wanting to buy turpentine too. Just wondering if u found a good source here in the UK and if so can u give me the name. Thanks, Caroline.
Hello!!!!! This message is for Mr. Bill. Hi. Do you think that Turpetine would help in HS (hidradenitis suppurativa) Reading your add and the testimonies of those who have tried Turpetine got tremendous faith and hope. Thanks to all who have set their testimony. Thank you Mr. Bill and God bless.
I also have a mild form of Hidradenitis suppurativa. Yes the Turpentine is helping. I researched and bought from Diamond G too. The healing has been slow for me. But the good news is that I have not had any new breakouts. I am following the candida cleanse started out with a teaspoon on 6 sugar cubes every morning on a empty stomach. The ones (sores, cystic bumps) that are there though will come out and start to dry up. But No new ones have appeared. Of Course keep those areas dry. I am also using Yardley London Soap Almond and Oatmeal in those sensitive areas. I also suggest this. Read this on another post and it has worked wonders. Yardleys is inexpensive and I have been able to find it at our Dollar Stores. Be prepared that the deeper ones will come to the surface. But you will notice they will heal as you keep them clean.
Since the turp was helping with that… now that I am doing the maintenance 2x a week of the turpentine. I added another parasite cleanse for the other days. 2teaspoons psyllium husk with drops of Black Walnut & Wormwood drops. Again every morning on an empty stomach. Along with 2 black walnut pills at night with pure bottled water.
I also eat a tablespoon of papaya seeds. occasionally, as well. Papaya seeds really help. Lots of stuff came out. Papaya seeds are peppery. I eat them straight. Some folks put them in their smoothies.
My concern was the connection with HS, parasites and candida. And I was correct. We both know how uncomfortable and embarrassing HS is. Along with the frustration of depending on mainstream Doctors telling us there is no cure. I say BS. Take your time with these things. Be patient with yourself and your healing. You know this takes time and don't over do it. (I only mention this because I struggle with hating myself over this disorder/ disease.) But I am getting results and couldn't be happier. I am losing weight too. My distended stomach is getting flatter. I don't smell funny anymore. My hair is shiny and smoother. My energy is up. I am sleeping all night again. My family says my attitude is better. So over all positives. I am out of the house more and have more confidence. You know ya just can't put a price on that.
I hope some of my info helps you too BO. We are in this together. GOD BLESS YOU BROTHER. May your healing go well.
I'd be in for this. Would like to try the purest turpentine available and willing to pay for shipping. I'm based in London. Thanks!
Excellent quality can be bougt from the following:
You can find pure balsam turpentine and a great medicinal quality pine tar sourced from
Sweden at auson.se
Hi Tucker, Is the NHR pure gum Turpentine or is it just a pine essential oil? Thanks.
They are exactly the same. i.e. Gum resin distilled leaving the essence of the resin. I prefered NHR as it was organic and comes with certificates of its purity.
Turpentine?? Is pine essential oil the same as turpentine?
They sell 100% pine oil at my local apothecary can this be used internally as well as externally?
Pine oil is not the same thing as turpentine. It has been extracted from the pine tree a different way and essential oils are stronger. I would not use pine essential oil internally, except maybe by the drop. People take as much as 1/4 to 1 teaspoon turpentine, but ingesting that much pine essential oil would be dangerous.
~Mama to Many~
Hi Will, If the pine essential oil is distilled from pine gum (AKA sap and resin) it can be used internally. If it is distilled from pine twigs, stumps and cones it is not the type suitable for a turpentine protocol.
This is a wonderful website that I have bookmarked!
What are the recommendations for turpentine in Canada?
I think that you recommend this one: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Klean-Strip-1-qt-Pure-Gum-Spirits-Turpentine-QGT69/100113509 What would the difference be between this one and the one from Georgia that everybody recommends?
Also I found: https://www.amazon.ca/BlueArrowExpress-Turpentine-essensial-natural-Palustres/dp/B0735Z3YMY/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1519193894&sr=8-1-fkmr0&keywords=Mylands+Pure+Gum+Turpentine, but it is more expensive, especially the shipping.
Also this: https://www.amazon.ca/BlueArrowExpressTM-Turpentine-100-Pure-Natural/dp/B01J1CJI96/ref=pd_sbs_201_3?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=85HP1WQHTW8A41030YSA a little cheaper per bottle but you need to buy 3 bottles.
I'm in Canada and would also like to know this. I ordered the Blue Arrow one to see if that is good quality.
Hi Carol, You can buy Diamond G Products on Amazon! Hope you get some. It has a lot of benefits. I have been taking it and it does work!
This question is for Bill Thompson. Is aged Turp more effective than regular Turp? if Yes, Are the dosages and herx reactions of aged Turp same as in regular Turp? Thanks, Madhu.
Hi Madhu…I really see very little difference between aged and normal turpentine. Both the oxidized and reduced forms of beneficial iso-pinenes in turpentine are good for the body. See this link. So whether the turpentine is aged (oxidized) or not would seem to make little difference as to its effectiveness for the body.
This question is for Bill Thompson. Thanks for your response. Is aged Turpentine pro-oxidant. And is regular Turpentine anti-oxidant?
Kleen Strip does make a Pure Gum Spirits Turpentine which is the one Tony uses. If you live in the US you can get it at Walmart for $1 cheaper than Home Depot. I use this for external, but for internal I use the Diamond G Forest Products because you can't get any purer than this product. http://www.diamondgforestproducts.com/
I've read through all of the posts here for candida/turpentine therapy but didn't come across anything about a protocol diet. This blog is Best Type of Turpentine, but I couldn't find anything else regarding it.
The reason I bring this up is that I've had severe, chronic candida/parasites/intestinal bacteria for 30+ years and spent thousand of dollars and suffered through numerous programs with absolutely no benefit until I tried Turp with which I started to feel better the next day.
Back to the diet. I followed Dr. Daniels protocol to the letter for six weeks. Dr. D says that 3-4 eliminations daily are required along with super hydrating…and no meat or dairy. Her recommended diet is very carb based with grains in particular. After six weeks I decided to come off of it to see how I would feel and the first thing that happened is that I got very constipated immediately and has remained that way for two months now which has freaked me out a bit since I wasn't pre-protocol. My symptoms also started to return soon afterwards.
I tried to get some advice about the constipation from Dr. D, but she kept trying to sell me her book and sessions which I can't afford. I got ahold of Tony Pantalleresco as I had nowhere else to turn for advice and although he is quite a character, he was very generous with his time and advice…as in free. I explained to him what was going on and even sent him Dr. D's protocol. Tony was emphatic that the constipation problem was due to all of the grains and that they were terrible for candida. He didn't say anything about 3-4 eliminations a day or super hydrating, etc.
So although the turpentine part is the same, they are two very different protocols. Dr. D says the treatment won't be effective or can even be harmful if not followed precisely and Tony says otherwise. True, Dr. D has an MD, but she also has a business degree from Wharton.
I've been afraid to resume turpentine therapy since I was afraid that I might have damaged my system resulting in constipation, but Tony has assured my that isn't the case. I'm staring again with Tony's recommendation tomorrow. I'd like to hear what anyone else has to offer on this. There aren't many people who are familiar with Turp therapy and this is the only Turp forum I've found.
I know this is a REALLY old post but I just wanted to know what you had ended up doing with your protocol.
I personally feels the diet Dr.D recommends is not appropriate for most people. I too agree with Tony that grains are one of the worst things you can eat with or without candida. I have found that eating moderate amounts of well-sourced meats (apx. 4-5oz per meal or less) is perfect along with lots of healthy fats and non-starchy veggies.
Rishicash: There is just one word that describes the super hero who comes to everybody’s rescue: enzymes. Enzymes are a mixture of nutrients that have more electrons than protons. They make high energy water. Activated barley has the most enzymes. Home grown sprouts and live ferments are second. Raw organic produce and raw grass fed animal products are third.
Constipation is a sign of dehydration start drinking more water preferably alkaline water to balance the bodys ph an 8 or higher and take you some probiotics or eat greek yogurt, at least once a day.Raw vege juice always jumpstarts a constipated colon carrot celery apple is a nice combination. Fishoil omega 3 also helps a stressed colon. Hopefully you will find relief with these solutions, good luck.
One spoon of Milled Flax Seed would definitely add a big boost to the veggie-juice.
Hi, Wondering if anyone knows if Klean Strip Green – Pure Turpentine Derived from Tree Resin – is a good product to take. It does not say Pure gum spirits anywhere on the can so I am a bit worried. Please advise.
I was watching Tony Pantalleresco video on turpentine and that is the brand he used.
Hello Dawn from LA: The type of turpentine I purchased from Wal-Mart is made by Klean Strips brand. Here is the link to that turpnetine: http://www.walmart.com/ip/Klean-Strip-Turpentine-1-qt/23760393
This type does have Pure Gum Spirits written on the front of the can. This type was approved here at EC by Bill Thompson as per his anti-candida protocol. Thanks & God Bless!
Greetings. I'm pleased to have found your site. I was introduced to using rectified turpentine many years ago by a homeopathic physician. I was told to only use Rectified turpentine as an impurer form can negatively affect the liver. His remedy was one drop (via an eyedropper) per 10 lbs of body weight. Repeat in 7 days to kill any eggs. I'm having difficulty finding turpentine in the rectified form here in the DR. Basically they have white & yellow. It sounds like you feel comfortable with most types of turpentine, rectified or not. Could those in-the-know expand on this? Especially concerning the liver. Thanks!
Hi Jere…Rectified turpentine has sodium hydroxide or potassium hydroxide solution added to it whereas pure gum spirits turpentine does not — it should be made only from the sap oil of the pine tree. Also, whether the turpentine now comes from the bark or whether it comes from the wood or sap is also a bit of a grey area nowadays. For the most part, turpentine is now made as a by-product from the wood and pulp industries. My own preference is to use the distilled pure gum spirit turps without any additives(non-rectified).
Any product that is labelled "pure gum turpentine" should just contain the distilled oil from the tree bark or wood with no further additives. If you want pure gum turps that is collected only from the bark sap and that is organic — then here is a good source:
Turpentine contains beneficial iso-pinenes, which act to help cleanse the intestines and purify the blood. Because of its blood purification capabilities. (I've been regularly taking turpentine, at one teaspoon dose, for over a year now. I don't take turps every day because my own current use of turpentine is as a preventative. Generally I take turpentine once or twice a week with castor oil and molasses (or honey).
After seeing Bill’s recommendation of this specific turpentine product, I went ahead and ordered it. I have not yet used turpentine medicinally, but want to be ready to try it.
So, I got my turpentine in the mail and I am so excited. It smells wonderful and natural and not like a chemical to clean a paintbrush!
My son, who is into forestry, was very impressed with how it smells, too.
Hi Mama to Many, did you order the turpentine from Diamond G Forest company? I did too and I am very happy to know that you like the product. I have using it now for almost 2 weeks and am up to more than half a teaspoon per day, using Bill's suggestion – with coconut oil and raw honey. Haven't seen any major reactions yet, except a feeling of drowsiness on two occasions and a couple of days of all-over achiness. But that could have been due to shoveling all this snow too! There is however, a definite feeling of enhanced mental clarity and a lessening of mental fatigue. Do keep posting your reactions too, thanks!
I did order mine from Diamond G Forest Company. Thanks for sharing what you are doing with it and how it is affecting you! I will post results when I have some. One thing I want to try is using it to worm my cats. I know at least one of them has a tapeworm. Just haven’t figured out dosage for cats…so if anyone has an idea, let me know!
Hi Bill, thanks a lot for this information. I’m so glad I stumbled over this site. Are there available pure gum spirits of turpentine in the Philippines, or should I order them through US-based online shops? Thanks!
Bill, this is an old post but wondered if the rectified would be toxic to you if used internally. Just curious.
Hi M Trying…Rectified just means to purify and doesn't really apply to the manufacture of gum turpentine. But it's quite normal to use gum turpentine internally that has been distilled and this is how it's normaly sold. Distilled just means that the thick pine sap from the tree has been boiled between certain temperatures to obtain a thinner distillate that is eventually sold as pure gum turpentine. Just make sure that it's pure gum turpentine — without any extra additives like Xylene, Toluene etc and you should be fine.
As advised by Walter Last, there are also several ways to supplement gum turpentine. You can either take it with water or molasses or milk(emulsifier) or raw honey or sugar on an empty stomach, which will then be absorbed quickly into the blood and act to disinfect and purify the blood(i.e. clears the blood, tissues etc of pathogens). Or you can take gum turpentine together with a heavier oil like castor oil or coconut oil for a similar purifying effect throughout the intestines only (because combining it with a heavier oil helps to prevent turpentine absorption into the blood).
I had had a question regarding turpentine. After reading your posts and of many others regarding the health benefits of turpentine, I decided to add it to my daily routine. I bought gum spirits of turpentine made from slash pine trees. It is manufactured here in the US, from a company called Diamond G Forest Products, Georgia. On the bottle it says "solvent for removing paints and waxes. DANGER: Harmful or fatal if swallowed; irritant to skin and eyes."
Is this a statutory type of warning? Or did I get the wrong kind of turpentine? If so, I will return it. But I would be grateful if you could guide me to a brand that is safe to take internally and one which is available easily in the US. Thank you for taking the time to respond!
This would be the ideal product from them: 16oz 100% Pure Gum Spirits of Turpentine
Yes, it is just a required statutory warning.
Hi Tina… I know Diamond V Georgia Turpentine and it is a very good organic product. Most turpentine products are the rectified form — usually made from the distillation of stumps and wood from pine trees. But Diamond V is made in the older proper way — by collecting the sap from pine trees and distilling this bark sap into pure gum turpentine.
When you begin supplementing with turpentine start either with drop dosages or just start with a 1/4 teaspoon and increase the dose slowly, over a week or more(with breaks), to 1 teaspoon.
The way I supplement turpentine, I take one teaspoon of either raw honey or molasses(your own preference) to coat the tongue and mouth. Then I take 1 one teaspoon of castor oil(or you can use VCO as an alternative if you like) and mix this all up in my mouth. Finally I add the turpentine dosage and mix it all up in the mouth and then chase this down with a glass of water.
Unfortunately, turpentine is not soluble or miscible in water — which is why you need to take it with an oil of some sort. Other methods of taking turpentine: With sugar or with milk. If you have candida then take the dose before a meal. This ensures that the turps will be carried into the intestines to do its good work against candida there.
I take the turpentine dose only twice a week for preventative reasons. But if you have a problem like candida then you should slowly work up to one teaspoon every day if you can. You will, most likely, get significant die-of or Herx reactions. You are allowed to stop this protocol and have as many breaks as you like in order to make the healing crisis less severe. This is up to you.
Because turpentine is such a rapid pathogen and parasite killer, I take it twice a week as a general preventative. And if you do have a problem in your intestines then supplementing turpentine like this will give a healing reaction(die-off) that you will definitely notice. So I am also using this protocol not only as a preventative, but also as a gauge or indicator if anything is wrong with my intestines. As most know, my own way is to protect the liver, kidney, thyroid and intestines in my own protocols for health.
But there are even more ways of taking turpentine, depending on what outcomes you want. In the above, I have already described how to best take the turpentine to get rid of problems in the intestines against candida, bacteria, parasites etc. But turps is also a blood purifier — in the blood, it kills many forms of pathogens, expels xenobiotics and also acts as a mild diuretic. That's what I mean by "purifying the blood". So how do we take turps to get rid of blood born diseases to help purify the blood?
The best method obviously involves getting the turps into the blood as fast as possible. Unfortunately, other than taking just the turpentine on an empty stomach outside mealtimes there are not many ways of doing this. But I am considering one way. I've also read that turps can be taken with wine(turps is also soluble in alcohol), so my own idea is to supplement the turps using a small amount of distilled alcohol with water. This would ensure very rapid absorption of the turps directly into the blood from the stomach. I haven't tried this yet(and I don't advise it), but will report back later on how this goes.
Maybe this is why Gin made from conifer is such a common drink among those living in the wilderness; it proly has many of the healing qualities as Turpentine. These may mix well for the body, but the mind will be no better off. Maybe once or twice per wk would be beneficial.
Speaking of methods of administration, Bill; what about Liposomal Turpentine w/ or without sonication? This would definitely promise to deliver the T systemically as opposed to mostly the gut. Am definately willing to give this a try.
Hi Timh…Liposomal turpentine certainly sounds interesting, but creating a liposomal nano-capsule relies on using lecithin oil to completely surround a droplet of the turpentine. Unfortunately, turpentine is very soluble in such oils so I don’t think it would allow the oil to surround and encapsulate it — but instead would just dissolve in it, thus preventing true liposomal delivery. That’s only my opinion, mind you, so might be worth a try.
I also looked into DMSO as possible mechanism for turps delivery into the blood quickly in order to avoid the intestinal route but, unfortunately again, I found out that turpentine was completely insoluble in DMSO. So there are some drawbacks with turpentine, mainly due to its lipophillic nature.
I’m also trying an experiment right now with the turps. I mentioned in another post that I was going to try taking a small amount of alcohol distillate and turpentine mixed with water for faster direct absorption from the stomach into the blood — for blood born diseases. I’ve had an annoying head cold and tickle in the throat for the last couple of days, so I thought I would try turps against this virus. I found an old bottle of whisky so I used that. Two teaspoons of jock whisky mixed with one teaspoon turpentine was the dose, then I added a third of a glass of water and drank it down (without ice…lol). Didn’t taste that bad, to tell the truth.
That was over 2 hours ago. And yes, there were a few rumbles in the jungle from way down below, as well as some minor bloating effects but nothing too awkward, radical or painful. No nausea or anything like that. I have to admit that right now my head is not so fuzzy, blocked nose is gone, my vision is a lot clearer with apparently less coughing. It’s evening now and early days yet, so will be able to judge the result more honestly tomorrow or in the next few days I think.
Thank you so much for your detailed reply. Earth Clinic and it's readers are truly fortunate to be able to benefit from your knowledge.
i am going to start taking the turpentine, beginning with one-fourth tsp, twice a week using raw honey/coconut oil method you recommend. My aim is to use it as a parasitic cleanse. Will keep you posted on my progress!
I have been taking H2O2 first thing every morning since last summer. I am now on the maintenance dose of three drops. It's been very helpful and I am reluctant to stop it. My energy level has never been better and even with the terrible winter we've been having in the North East, my immune system remains strong. Could I continue taking it every morning even on the days that I take the turpentine? Or would that be too much? Thanks again for your help.
Hi Tina…Turpentine is mainly an anti-oxidant therapy but Hydrogen Peroxide is a pro-oxidant therapy. So if you take them at the same time they will react with each other to cancel out and neutralize each other’s beneficial effects.
Luckily, hydrogen peroxide only lasts for about an hour in the body before it is used up. So just make sure that you take the turpentine dose at least an hour or two after you have taken the hydrogen peroxide.
It’s not so bad for the turpentine because the reduced form(anti-oxidant) and the oxidized form of turpentine both have beneficial properties for the body. See this link. However, whenever HP is neutralized by an anti-oxidant it is usually just converted to oxygen and water and all its pathogen-killing and detox properties are lost as a consequence.
Hello again Bill. That's some very interesting reading about your latest turpentine experiment Bill. What could be used as a replacement for alcohol? I just don't drink alcohol of any kind. What else could I use? I assume rubbing alcohol wouldn't be a plausible replacement? What about a homeopathic remedy that has a small % of alcohol? Trying to think of something I could use that I have on hand.
I have candida as you know so by your recommendations I should take it just before meals. However, I know that I have pathogens and other disease causing organisms in the bloodstream. I have been alternating taking the turpentine before meals and on an empty stomach to try and get the maximum benefit from it. Thanks for your help & God Bless!
Thank you, this is very helpful. I will start taking turpentine two hours after the hydrogen peroxide. All the best. Anod thanks again!
Hello Bill, You mentioned above that it is best to take turpentine before a meal, I am assuming on an empty stomach, for intestinal issues such as candida. I have tried it on an empty stomach, about 5 drops on a sugar cube. Within a couple of minutes I've experienced a feeling of dizziness. Have you or anyone ever had this reaction or a similar one? The 2nd time I tried it with food and did not get that reaction.
Hi June…The symptoms of dizziness or drowsiness or wooziness are well known when you take turpentine. Turpentine kills all manner of pathogens in the blood and intestines very quickly, including candida. When a large amount of candida is suddenly destroyed by turpentine, then all the poisons from inside the candida(and from other killed pathogens) will suddenly be released into the body. The result is a Herx or die off reaction because of these poisons in the blood which tend to affect the mind. This is what is termed a healing crisis(caused, not by the turpentine, but from the release of poisonous toxins from the killed candida).
From my own recent experience while being involved with a private group trying to cure their young children of autism using turpentine, these die-off or Herx symptoms are commonplace — wooziness, drowziness, dizziness. When this happens as a reaction, the parents usually always allow at least one day off from the turpentine protocol as a break for the child involved.
I’ve also been taking turpentine regularly as a preventative and immune booster for over a year now and I can report that I have had no side-effects from taking this dosage — no dizziness or wooziness. I take it about twice a week — one teaspoonful with castor oil and molasses (or honey) usually at mealtime. And since I get no die-ff or Herx reaction, this therefore tells me that my intestines and blood are reasonably healthy and fit. If I suddenly did have a side-effect reaction like dizziness after taking turpentine, then I would immediately and reasonably assume that I might be infected with candida, parasites or other pathogens.
Is Jasco pure gum turpentine OK for therapy use..? Thank you, Jack
Its just our wonderful corrupt govt not wanting any of us to be well. Yes, u have to be very careful not to overdo it but my grandparents & before them took this stuff. It works miracles. Btw, the govt w/its organic (a bunch of bologna) & their nano technology (don't EVER let them tell u it's good for u…its not) & many other things that once were supposed conspiracies is actual facts. We r asickly nation due to their messing around w/our foods & seeds. They don't want us knowing how to cure ourselves from their man-made diseases. For more info on this, go to youtube & type in turpentine for health & see what u hear. Remember hearing how unpasturized milk is dangerous? That's a blatent lie to. If they can't regulate the true dangers they are putting into our food/drink, they call it dangerous.
IS MYLANDS PURE GUM TURPENTINE SAFE TO USE FOR INTERNAL USE?
I have used turpentine before but can't remember the make. I get so bloated I would really like to clear it.
I have never ever been to a doctor and only ever use herbs etc. Thanks
Been reading everything you post. You are indeed an asset to this site. I have been reading about your taking turpentine. I just purchased a small can of turpentine. On the side it says “Contains Turpentine and PETROLEUM DISTILLATE.”
There’s a man from Canada that mixes it with honey…One teaspoon with 4 tablespoons of honey and takes a teaspoon of it…He’s on you tube…Is this the kind of Turpentine to use for therapy and how would you suggest? The things I’ve been reading about the remedies on many sites says it cures many things and quickly…I have hepatitis c and peripheral neuropathy…Thank you and keep up the good work…
Hi Ruth…Yes I've seen the video on youtube with Tony Pantalleresco using Turpentine. He made a 4:1 mix with honey and turps respectively which is a quarter the dose that I recommend for adults. In the video he also takes two spoonfuls of this mix at different times. Also I think that the can of turpentine he held up was Klean Strip Green — Pure Gum Spirit Turpentine (the green can) which is 100% gum spirits turps and can be used. I tend to avoid the kerosene brands because its so confusing and seems to vary from country to country — Kerosene can also be called paraffin, mineral oil, white spirit etc and therefore can be quite confusing for people. So I keep it simple — use only pure gum spirits turpentine with no additives. Walter Last also recommends an Aussie brand for the protocol called Digger's Low Odour Kerosene which is quite useful if you live in Australia.
My own way is to put one teaspoon of honey or molasses in my mouth, then put the turpentine dose (usually one teaspoon for me) in my mouth next. Then I hold it in my mouth and mix it with my saliva and then I swallow this mix and just chase it down with some water.
If you've never taken turpentine like this before, then you should start with just a 1/4 tspn of turps, with increasing drop dosages over about a week until you are taking one teaspoon. If at any time while taking this protocol you have a Herx or die off reaction or if you feel woozy, drowsy or lethargic — then take a day off the next day and resume, at a lesser dose, thereafter.
Walter Last also seems to prefer taking the turps or kerosene with a teaspoon of castor oil. The castor oil is a useful idea because it also kills candida and beneficially tends to gently accelerate excretion — thus removing toxins more quickly from the body. Coconut oil or olive oil can also be taken as the carrier with the turps remedy as well.
Since the turpentine that you have also contains petroleum distillate and is not pure gum spirits turpentine from a pine tree, I'm afraid that I cannot recommend it for supplementing internally.
To Ruth , I have done several things the ” guy from Canada ” says to do , I have been in the past in bad shape, with Tony's help I'm a new man.
I have the Diamond G Forest Products turpentine, but we will spend 3 months in Italy this summer. Does anyone know a good, pure brand of turpentine in Italy? I looked on amazon.co.uk, and they will not ship the Mylands turpentine to Italy. Thanks for any advice.
Please post your results, benefits or problems. I'm curious to learn if this will work for tinnitus, which I suspect to be due to viruses in the cochlea. Purity of the tree resins is important. If it's from China do not trust ingredients.
