Hi...Yes I've been using gum turpentine for the past 5 years on a regular weekly basis(for preventative maintenance) and I now recommend it for people who have candida, bacterial and parasites infections. I've also worked with 3 groups who have autistic/ASD chidren. Lugol's Iodine, borax, alkalizing and turpentine helped many of the kids recover and become normal again. Candida and parasites cause autism in babies. The candida and parasitic poisons seriously affect the child's delicate developing brain which is what causes the autism. In adults these poisons manifests differently because our brains are fully developed. So in adults, if you have systemic candida, this might manifest as an inability to concentrate, fibromyalgia, tiredness, cfs, depression, brain fog or as another ASD disorder such as bipolar disorder.
I've found that gum turpentine is very efective against bacteria, fungus, parasite, viruses, mycoplasma etc. Like its near cousin kerosene, it is a blood purifier which also has the ability to disinfect the intestines safely without killing the good intestinal bacteria as well.
I had serious systemic candida issues 10 years ago and got rid of it. It never came back. I used this protocol. This protocol has also helped alot of other people with candida and parasite problems. It's seems to be very efffective.
There's nothing wrong with me now. I'm 67 and as healthy as a lamb in spring. I occasionally now take one teaspoon of turpentine for a week or more as a blood purifier and as a preventative together with lugol's iodine, borax and alkalizing and also use minerals as well as herbs like chanca piedra, Heart Vine, ginger, andrographis and several others.
