Gum Turperntine is a fluid obtained by the distillation of resin obtained from live trees. It is made up of primarily 2 hydrocarbons A-Pinene and B-pinene. A lot of Gum Turpentine comes from the pine tree and is a by product of the paper industry. Initially pine trees are mashed into a pulp using huge apparatus. Then a portion of this is refined further. Any impurities are filtered out and then what’s left is distilled in a large tank with water. Turpentine is lighter than water so floats to the top.
When we look at nature and see how trees defend themselves from one of their biggest potential enemies, fungus. We see that they have developed complex systems to be able to ward of attack. When we are talking about Gum Turpentine we are referring to natures answer to fungus invasion. Would it be not best to use the powerful tools of nature to our advantage?
Here I am talking about using Gum Turpentine orally for the treatment of Candida. In my article on my personal treatment of this invasive fungi I go into detail of what Candida is and what is some of the best methods to treat this dis-ease.
Gum Turpentine is a completely natural product from the fruits of nature and if used in the correct way can become a powerful tool in our armoury of good health.
I personally have been using Gum Turpentine for over 1 month now, having a break for 1-2 days every week. I begun very cautiously, and I believe everyone should. I started with 5 drops and slowly progressed upwards with the dosage. I now take 50 drops at a time, with a limit of 100/day, or 1 teaspoon.
I have found the best ways to take Gum Turpentine internally is mixed with a psyllium, bi carbonate soda flush. 1 Teaspoon of psyillium and bi carbonate soda, mixed in with preferred dosage of Gum Turpentine and a large glass of water. Drink fast and follow with at least half the same amount of water.
This concoction kills candida fast, the psyllium quickly transports it out of the body whilst the bi carb keeps everything alkaline right through to the urine, always good. Also Turpentine has the added benefit of destroying tough biofilms.
This flush is most effective either in the morning before eating, or 1 hour before eating throughout the day. You can do multiple flushes in one day, and follow with probiotics 30-60 minutes after the flush to replace the dead pathogenic microbes with friendly gut bacteria.
It would be best to give your body a rest from turpentine at-least 1 of every 7 days. Try alternating with other fungicides on rest days and when you have cured yourself stop taking all together. Then perhaps follow up with a monthly prevention treatment to ensure no fungus begins to take a foothold again.
For the Lungs (as well as nose and sinuses). Place two teaspoons of gum turpentine in a bowl of steaming hot water, hold the head over the bowl and cover with a towel. Take deep breaths through the nose for at least 10 minutes. Repeat morning and evening. This is very powerful.
Gum Turpentine is closely related to Kerosene in its powers although it is different, being stronger and has the added bonus of being able to be mixed with food and drink. Although I slightly prefer Kerosene, Gum Turpentine is a close second.
You must get the correct Gum Turpentine. The one I use is brought from hardware stores and is the Diggers Pure Gum Turpentine referenced in the picture. I would recommend anyone wishing to begin a treatment does extensive research into this.
“Different brands of gum turpentine have boiling points between 100C and 200C. those with lower boiling points (100C to 150C) are easily absorbed through the stomach and so their main area of action is in the blood. Those with higher boiling points closer to 200C tend to pass through the stomach and act more in the intestines. However, you can get a high boiling point gum turpentine to pass through the stomach and into the intestines by mixing it with a thick oil before taking it. Equal parts of castor oil or oil of paraffin ensures that the gum turpentine is carried directly into the intestines from the stomach.“
“In addition to kerosene, turpentine was previously used as a cure-all. Natural turpentine, commonly sold as “pure gum turpentine”, was commonly used in lower doses and less frequently than kerosene. It was especially treasured for its antiseptic and diuretic properties and as a treatment for intestinal parasites. According to Wikipedia: “Turpentine was a common medicine among seamen during the Age of Discovery, and one of several products carried aboard Ferdinand Magellan’s fleet in his first circumnavigation of the globe.”
To expel tapeworms, a powerful dose of one to two tablespoons of turpentine was given, usually mixed with the same amount of castor oil and taken floating on milk. This was repeated every second or third day until the fragments of the worm ceased to appear in the stool. For children, the prescription was less drastic: one teaspoonful of sugar, three to four drops of turpentine and one teaspoonful of castor oil.
Jennifer Daniels, MD, discovered that American slaves had a secret remedy that kept them free of diseases: a teaspoon of turpentine mixed with a teaspoon of white sugar, taken for short periods several times each year. She adopted this as a successful Candida therapy: Slowly pour a teaspoon of turpentine over sugar cubes or a rounded teaspoon of white sugar to soak it all up. Then chew the cubes or soaked sugar and wash the mixture down with water. Dr Daniels generally recommends doing this twice a week for several weeks, but initially daily with long-term Candida. Continue until the problem is fixed – which can happen surprisingly quickly. On Internet forums, I found some testimonials showing that this therapy indeed worked for these people.
Dr Daniels states that before starting turpentine therapy it is essential to prepare by drinking lots of water, adopting a suitable anti-Candida diet and cleaning the bowel. At this stage, it is necessary to have three daily bowel movements, otherwise the pathogens may get into the blood. She also believes that the use of sugar in this case is beneficial in stopping the sugar craving so common with Candida and in attracting the Candida to the “poison”.
I tried this out with Diggers Pure Gum Turpentine, which is available in Australia. When taking a teaspoon of it on a cube of sugar, I was surprised how pleasant it tasted, just like a pine-flavoured lolly. However, I now believe that instead of using sugar, it is better to take gum turpentine mixed with an equal amount or more of either paraffin oil or olive oil. Gum turpentine has a much stronger effect than kerosene, and some individuals experienced temporary balance problems. I would limit the maximum dose to 1 teaspoon per day for an adult.”
