An interesting find I came across during my research:
As an example of the latter, Turpentine has been used to elicit an inflammatory response in animal models for more than 50 years. Turpentine is a distillate of the resins obtained from various trees and is a heterogenous mixture of organic compounds. It is generally injected subcutaneously and causes a brisk inflammatory response that peaks at approximately 16Ė24 hours after injection but persists for several days. Turpentine acutely induces hepcidin and causes hypoferremia 28,45,46. Repeated turpentine injections, generally on a weekly basis, produce anemia although hepcidin does not remain elevated45,47 (and unpublished data).
Also contraindicated in people with hypertrophy and cerebral capillary atheroma. I wonder if this is whats causing me to look pale and feel light headed lately. Should I just cut back to doing 2 or 3 times a week now instead of every day? Any thoughts would be appreciated thank you all!
