I am using Turpentine for a parasite cleanse. It seems to be very broad spectrum. Killing or making everything want to leave. If I had realized how powerful it was and how infested I was, then I would have started with something else. I ramped up from a quarter teaspoon turp and castor oil to a teaspoon, and had not die off symptoms until I the second day of a teaspoon. What I realized afterwards is that some really large round worms were sucking it all up. The second day at a teaspoon I vomited up 5 12 to 18 inch worms with tons more that didn't make it out over the next week. Ick. It's been a month and half and I take it every other day at the moment. The hatchings were every 3 days, but now seem to be every 2 days.
