Hi All ~ I have another post on here where some wonderful people (Tartufospeck & Solaris) have identified the *secret* ingredient in a highly successful candida protocol seemingly only known by Dr. Jennifer Daniels.
You can read my other post on this here:
So, the secret ingredient is Oil of Turpentine, which is super cheap and accessible to all of us.
It's also called Pine Resin. Read more on the history of Pine Resin here:
I've combed the web for the ways in which it should be used to eradicate candida, but have only come up with generalizations such as this:
Turpentine and petroleum distillates such as coal oil and kerosene have been used medicinally since ancient times, as topical and sometimes internal home remedies. Topically it has been used for abrasions and wounds, as a treatment for lice, and when mixed with animal fat it has been used as a chest rub, or inhaler for nasal and throat ailments. Many modern chest rubs, such as the Vicks variety, still contain turpentine in their formulations.
Though internal administration of these toxic products is no longer common today, it was once administered by masking the taste by dosing sugar cubes, molasses, or honey, or when unavailable, straight. It was touted as treatment for intestinal parasites due to its alleged antiseptic and diuretic properties, and a general cure-all.
Okay, so, bottom line, can anyone figure out what type of protocol might make sense?
According to several things I've gleaned from an interview with Dr. Daniels, the following things make sense to me:
There is either a 4 day or 4 step prepaton time before taking the turpentine oil. I am guessing this involves lots of bowel cleansing and lowering all sugar/grain intake and drinking a TON of water to reduce toxins and die-off after taking the turpentine. She mentions that you must be going to the bathroom 3+ times per day...so this says to me that the physical removal of candida, as much as you can do on your own BEFORE the turpentine oil, is KEY.
Also, it is mentioned that you do not have to take much turpentine oil and you should not take a higher does than she recommends either.
On several forums, it is mentioned briefly that people remember their grandmother's giving them a few drops of turpentine on a sugar cube to cure what ailed them. The turpentine-candida protcol DOES involve sugar, from what I'm told, so I also wonder if that's the dosage -- a few drops with sugar..or honey etc?
So, slow and steady wins the race?
Also, I'm sure that it's the pure gum spirits that are used....I also wonder if the many essential oils of Pine available would work just as well?
If anyone knows ANYTHING else about this protocol, please let us all know. Thank You !!!
The 24 page interview with Dr. Jennifer daniels is here...maybe you'll get more clues than I did !!!
I am sure prior to the terpentine treatment(steps 1-4) you have to go on some type of cleanse/ liquid fasting to totally expose the candida. Probably Clean the intestines/colon of mucus for 5-6 days to totally expose the candida. Then you hit it with the turpentine protocol. It might be a good idea to get a colonic/do enemas prior to the treatment to clear out the colon.
Its interesting that he recommends granulated sugar and no other sweetner to be added to the turpentine. For some reason granulated sugar must bond to the terpentine better than other sweetners?
Jameskep37 -- Yes, you are exactly right -- a low fat. raw vegan diet is mentioned also...consuming NO oil and only getting small amounts of fat naturally occurring in small amounts of avocado etc. Plus, I'm sure eliminating animal foods speeds things up also. I'm going to do some salt-water flushes, since it's the only thing that works quickly and doens't involve drinking the awful psyllium....ugh....cannot stand that stuff!
I've been freezing castor oil capsules that I make myself....I had read this was a good way to suffocate parasites...so, hoping it suffocates candida too.
Plus, I may go back to taking diatomaceous earth....it's really cheap, easy to drink and makes me go the bathroom a lot....my symptoms did not seem greatly improved, but I only did it for 10 days and it did seem like I was more empty inside than usual....plus, it's supposed to be a great cleanser for ridding us of mucous etc.
