Unfortunately, I don't have any proof that it can kill parasites but Dr Jennifer Daniels does.
She has a free candida document explaining her use with it and how she uses it.
You are asking some strange questions for sure. But here are my answers:
1. Is it safe to assume that a metal spoon of some sort is used to measure and/or administer the Turpentine? If so, how do you clean or wash the spoon afterwards? Just rinse it in the sink with soap and water? Is it safe to rinse turpentine down the sink?
What's metal spoons got to do with taking turps? I've been taking pure gum turpentine using a metal teaspoon for 5 to 6 years now. It is quite a remarkable blood purifier i.e. it will kill bacteria, mycoplasma, mycobacteria, viruses, fungus, yeast and parasites. From all the research that I've read, it also does not destroy good gut bacteria. The Merck Manual(The doctor's Bible) banned turpentine in 1999, saying that if you got turps in your lungs it would cause great problems. Hey, if you put water in your lungs then you are going to have some major problems. Is water therefore a poison? Turpentine was used by the Egyptians and the Greeks both externally and internally. In the 1899 Merck Manual(find it online) a quick search on turpentine revealed that turpentine was used internaly for serious blood diseases like tuberculosis, gonorrea, syphilis and leprosy -- just to mention a few. Good enough? It has been used internally for thousands of years as a kind of cure all which is highly effective against bloodborne pathogens. I've also been using turpentine regularly for many years -- it cured alot of my problems in the intestines and in my blood -- and, apart from the occasional Herx reaction, I've never once had a problem with taking it.
2. Do you open the windows in the room in which you are using the Turpentine, to avoid any turpentine vapours?
What? Just take one teaspoon of turpentine a day. Start with half a teaspoon and work up to one teaspoon. Make sure that the turpentine you use pure gum turpentine from the pine tree. Check that there are no additives like Xylene or Toluene in the turps. If you do that you will be fine.
3. If you happen to spill a drop or two, do you clean the turpentine with a paper towel? Cotton/Cloth towel? How do you dispose of (or clean) either of those 2 types of towels (or anything else you may have used to clean up any spills) after it has turpentine on it? Is the towel considered "hazardous waste" and needs to be disposed of accordingly?
Oh my God!! You really do have an amazing amount of fear about using turpentine as a supplement!! Get rid of that fear or you will never be able to use it properly!! That means you should research turpentine for yourself to see how amazing it is. Start your own research here.
4. Do you store your bottle/can of turpentine in a special location? Do you store it indoors or outdoors?
Usually bought in metal or glass containers. I store it in a cupboard away from the kids. That's fine.
5. Are there any other safety precautions you use when using Turpentine that I may not have mentioned above?
It's inflammable(so is whisky, vodka and brandy). I've found turpentine very easy to supplement. You can supplement one teaspoon of turpentine per day together with water or castor oil or milk or coconut oil or blackstrap molasses or sugar. Many ways to supplement turpentine.
6. Lastly ... has anyone from Canada (Ontario) been able to find or import the Diamond G brand of Gum Spirits of Turpentine? Apparently they can't ship their product across the border and I was just wondering what brand Canadians have used, whether it be Diamond G brand or another brand.
You don't have to use the best gum turpentine -- like Diamond G. I can't buy turpentine where I'm living in the Philippines so I just use pine oil(as essential oil) made from Pinus sylvestris(Scot's pine). I get my pine essential oil from ebay. You cannot ship turpentine to Canada from the US because its inflammable, but essential oils like pine oil will ship to Canada. Pine oil is the same as Turpentine. My pine essential oil is triple distilled which means that it is very pure and quite strong. I'm happy enough with that and I use it internally on a regular basis. And unlike you, I have no fear at all about using turpentine internally. I trust it completely.
Hi Carty3...If you have Whipple's disease then you should initially perhaps take a teaspoon of turpentine together with coconut oil or castor oil on a daily basis. The protocol I recommend is here. Whipple's disease is caused by bacteria that resides deep in the intestinal tract. Using turpentine with an oil like castor oil will help to keep the turpentine from being absorbed into the blood -- so that the turps will primarily act to kill the bad bacteria in your gut. You should also expect a Herx reaction initially. If the Herx is awful just reduce the turps dosage -- but don't stop the protocol!.
After you have cleared the bad bacteria from your intestines you should then switch your protocol to taking the turps on an empty stomach wth one tblsp of raw honey or with blackstrap molasses or with a tspn of sugar. Take this on an empty stomach so the turps is rapidly absorbed from the stomach into the blood. This will help you to clear any residual bad bacteria from the blood, tissues and organs. Good luck!!
Hi SlowSmile, thanks for taking the time to respond to my questions. And yes, I'll be the first to admit that I'm more than a little paranoid with the flammability of turpentine.
If interested, have a look at this thread.
They talk about turpentine in relation to oil painting, and how to dispose of turpentine-soaked rags (properly), and even though the amounts of turpentine used might be different, the general chemistry / flammability principles still apply.
Turpentine should be stored in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area in tightly sealed containers that are labeled in accordance with OSHA's Hazard Communication Standard [29 CFR 1910.1200]. Turpentine can undergo autoxidation in contact with air and can generate heat that may spontaneously ignite in a confined space. Containers of turpentine should be protected from physical damage and should be stored separately from strong oxidizers (especially chlorine), heat, sparks, and open flame. Only nonsparking tools may be used to handle turpentine. To prevent static sparks, containers should be grounded and bonded for transfers. Because containers that formerly contained turpentine may still hold product residues, they should be handled appropriately. [/excerpt]
Turpentine research -- proper honest research -- is very hard to find because it has been deliberately suppressed by the drugs companies.
If you really want to know why turpentine is so effective against such a wide variety of pathogens species then you should read this research:
The allopathic drugs companies has no antiobitic, anti-viral, anti-fungal, anti-parasitic etc that can compete or that even comes close to what turpentine can do to kill such a wide range of pathogen species. And because of the way turpentine kills these pathogens(very fast) -- pathogens cannot adjust to it like bacteria can adjust to antibiotics.
Little wonder then that the drugs companies banned turpentine...their drugs just coudn't compete with turpentine's anti-pathogenic capabilities. So they just banned it and everybody believed their corrupt reasons despite the fact that turpentine had already been used internally -- quite safely and effectively -- for thousands of years.
I can only tell you how I started using turpentine. I started with half a teaspoon and worked up to a full teaspoon within 4 days. Depending on the extent of your infection, you may get a Herx reaction or you may get no Herx reaction. I personally don't think using a couple of drops of turps to start with will have much effect. The problem is your fear. I can't do much about that. I've also recommended half a teaspoon of turpentine to 4 y.o. kids when I was helping three parent groups to cure their children of autism and ASD disorders. That worked well without any problems except for the Herx rection I mentioned. So it's really up to you.
