I was introduced to the use of turpentine in medicine at the beginning of 2020 by our friend Andrew Kaufman. After hearing about its history and the rationale for its use, I almost slapped my forehead. "How did I miss this?" I wondered.
Turpentine, which is simply a distillate of pine resin, has been used as a medicine for a very long time. According to the world's turpentine expert, Dr. Jennifer Daniels, turpentine was the only medicine the African slaves in the U.S. were allowed to use for many decades. The only good news about this restriction was that it probably was the only medicine they needed.
Among its many properties, turpentine is a strong natural solvent. It not only dissolves paint and stains, it also can dissolve the accumulated waste products that build up in our tissues. It is these waste products that feed the erroneously named pathogens, such as fungi and bacteria, whose only role is to feed off of and biodegrade the dead cells and tissues that result from the accumulation of toxic debris.
Ingesting turpentine, inhaling turpentine or using it topically allows it to penetrate into our tissues and organs, loosening and dissolving these accumulated toxins and allowing them to be safely excreted out of the body. This is the essence of real healing, and nothing facilitates this process better than turpentine.
I'm happy that we're now able to offer a pure and safe turpentine for our customers. To learn about its proper and safe use, please watch this podcast interview with Dr. Kaufman, in which all the details are explained. Turpentine is perhaps the one medicine that everyone should have in their home-care supplies.
