Medical consensus: drinking turpentine is not in your best interests

Quote:What is TURPENTINE?

Turpentine is a yellow-colored, sticky liquid that comes from pine gum or pine wood. Turpentine turns into a
vapor very easily, and it can catch fire. Oil of turpentine is a colorless liquid with a very strong smell. Other
names for turpentine are gum spirits, turps, gum thus, D.D. turpentine, wood turpentine, oil of turpentine,
rectified turpentine oil, spirits of turpentine, sulfate wood turpentine, sulfate turpentine, gum turpentine, and
steam-distilled turpentine.

Where can turpentine be found and how is it used?

In the past, turpentine was the most widely used paint and varnish thinner. It was also used in printing, hair
products and medicines. It is still used in some paints and coatings. Today, less costly products have replaced
the use of turpentine in paints. Now, the major use of turpentine is as a raw material for the chemical industry.
It is also used for spray painting and pottery, ceramic coatings, artist’s paints and naval paints. Turpentine is
sometimes found in shoe and furniture polishes. It is also used as a metal cleaner.

Compounds extracted from turpentine can be used for tires, plastics, adhesives, flavors, fragrances, makeup,
paints and medicine.

How can people be exposed to turpentine?

People who work in pulp or paper factories may be exposed to turpentine. Exposure at work can also occur at
places that make flavorings, fragrances, coatings, metal cleaners or solvents. At home, you can be exposed
through food, personal care products, household products and medicine. Pine forests are sources of natural,
low level exposure to turpentine since trees release terpenes into the air.

You could be exposed to turpentine through:

Breathing vapors at work or at home, such as when painting.

Drinking turpentine in medicine. Accidental drinking of turpentine is unlikely.

Touching paint thinners or other products containing turpentine.

Eye Contact by splashing turpentine in the eyes.

How does turpentine work?


Turpentine is easily taken into the intestines and the lungs. Some turpentine leaves the body when air is
breathed out. The rest leaves the body in urine. It irritates the stomach and intestines and affects the nervous
system.

How can turpentine affect my health?

Turpentine is poisonous if swallowed. Children and adults can die from drinking turpentine. Fortunately,
turpentine causes taste and odor problems before reaching toxic levels in humans.

Turpentine is thought to be only mildly toxic when used according to manufacturers’ recommendations. It can
pass through the skin. Some people develop an allergy to turpentine when exposed to it for a long time.

Turpentine exposure causes eye irritation, headache, dizziness and vomiting. Breathing or swallowing also
causes kidney and bladder irritation.

How is turpentine poisoning treated?

There is no treatment for turpentine poisoning. A doctor will treat the symptoms. Medicine may be given if
seizures occur. Pumping the stomach is only done if another poison has also been swallowed with the
turpentine.

What should I do if exposed to turpentine?

If turpentine gets in your eyes, flush the eyes right away. Use large amounts of water for at least 15
minutes. Lift the lower and upper lids from time to time. Get medical help.

If you touch turpentine, wash with soap and water. If irritation does not stop, or if a large area of skin is
affected, get medical help.

If you breathe turpentine, go to an area of fresh air. Get medical help. If it is hard to breathe, try to get
oxygen. Stay warm and quiet until help arrives.

If you swallow turpentine, drink several glasses of water. Do not throw up. Get medical help right away.
Stay warm and quiet until help arrives.

What factors limit use or exposure to turpentine?

When working with turpentine, have a source of fresh air and a ventilation system. If this cannot be done,
workers should wear a respirator. Wear protective work clothing. Wash well after exposure. Wash again at the
end of the work shift.


Is there a medical test to show whether I’ve been exposed to turpentine?

There is no medical test for turpentine poisoning.

Ah the smell of turpentine! It reminds me of oil painting lessons as a child. I did find out that you should never put turpentine in styrofoam cups as it makes them melt into a gooey mess. I never thought to drink it, however.

KEROSENE - a Universal Healer

by Walter Last

Turpentine and petroleum distillates similar to kerosene have been used medicinally since ancient times and are still being used as folk remedies up to the present. They were used in ancient Babylon to treat stomach problems, inflammations and ulcers. The process of distilling crude oil/petroleum into hydrocarbon fractions was first described in the ninth century in Persia.

The use of these petroleum products is most widespread in poorer countries, including Russia, Eastern Europe and Africa. A recent study in Nigeria found that about 70 per cent of the population used petroleum products medicinally [1]. The most common applications are for infections and infectious diseases, autoimmune diseases, cancer, arthritis and rheumatic diseases in general. Even the Rockefellers supposedly started their fortune by selling kerosene as a cancer cure before they found that chemotherapy was more lucrative.

From the available literature, I conclude that kerosene therapy may be one of the best ways to eliminate pathogenic microbes and parasites from the blood and bowel. My article on pleomorphic microbes [2] shows that in all of the above-mentioned diseases there is an overgrowth of fungal and cell-wall deficient (CWD) pathogenic microbes in the blood. It appears that the success of kerosene is due to its detrimental effect on these fungi and CWD microbes, which then allows the immune system to eliminate remaining pockets of other pathogens and abnormal cells in tumours and affected organs.

A comparison of several disinfectants found that kerosene, while not controlling the tested bacteria, had the strongest effect on suppressing Candida—stronger than even a sodium hypochlorite bleach [3]. This may actually be the secret of the healing success of kerosene: it suppresses Candida, viruses and CWD microbes while not harming normal gut bacteria.

On a German forum I read about a case of intestinal Candida overgrowth that had been verified by microbial stool analysis. This had not been normalised after previous Candida treatment, but after the use of kerosene all the Candida-related problems disappeared, as did the allergic reactions to several foods. A follow-up stool analysis showed that the intestinal flora was in excellent condition.

Kerosene is a mineral oil distillate commonly used as a fuel or solvent. It is a thin, clear, liquid consisting of a mixture of saturated hydrocarbons that boil between 145–150°C and 275–300°C. While kerosene can be extracted from coal, oil shale and wood, it is primarily derived from refining crude petroleum. Turpentine distilled from different varieties of California pines is almost pure heptane, as in light petrol. Other varieties of pine produce mainly chemicals called terpenes, as present in fragrant oils.

The word "kerosene" is used in Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the United States. Kerosene is called "paraffin" in the United Kingdom, Southeast Asia and South Africa, while in Germany and other parts of Central Europe it is called "light petroleum" and, medicinally, "petrolatum". The word Kerosin is German for "aircraft fuel".

The Cancer Cure of Paula Ganner

The modern wave of using kerosene as a cancer cure started in the early 1950s. At the age of 31, an Austrian woman, Paula Ganner, with cancer metastases and colon paralysis after surgery, had been given two days to live by her doctors. She remembered that in Eastern Europe kerosene was used as a cure-all, and she started taking a tablespoonful each day. After three days, she could leave the bed, and 11 months later she gave birth to a healthy boy. At age three, this boy contracted polio which she cured with one teaspoon of kerosene daily for eight days. Ganner started spreading the information about the amazing results of using kerosene for all kinds of health problems, and over the years she received 20,000 thank-you letters with success stories.

RE: Medical consensus: drinking turpentine is not in your best interests
DO NOTe through all time the PINE CONE has been associated with health. You don't have to drink turpentine at all. Make tea from the needles, eat pine nuts, and research pine resin as the cure for just about everything.

Check out this image and ask yourself WHY they all have PINE in them..
Too look at that tammuz pic with the pine cone in his hand
search any ancient god image and you will find a pine cone
there is one three stories tall at the vatican
google it for godsake and eat and drink of the pine
nevermind the disinformation about turpentine
pine sulfur carries oxygen look it up
