I am somewhat of a newbie to Pine Oil / Turpentine Gum Spirits. So, my experience with using it is limited. I do feel what I say here  may help someone out there looking for information.

There is a very short video that is understated in championing the power of Pine Oil – Turpentine Gum Spirits. I almost did not watch / listen to it entirely because I thought, at first, it was primarily directed toward the “industrial” use of Turpentine / Pine Oil. link here for Natural Turpentine with Dave  Bardin.

As I said, I am new to Pine Oil and at  the beginning stages of personally experiencing what it does. I did buy Pine Pollen from Danny Vitalis, at Surthrival, over 6 years ago. One of the strengths of  Danny Vitalis is his focus and  understanding of the potential of adaptogenic substances. These plants live all around us in nature, and even in more urban environments. An adaptogen, to my understanding, is an immune system strengthener and booster. In order for that boost to take place some internal housekeeping has to be part of the deal. This housekeeping is a house cleaning process that involves our bodies ridding themselves of toxins. The exit points include the skin, most especially if the organs and pathways of excretion are bogged down with waste.


Recently, I have been exchanging emails with someone who is an advisor of the Kalcker Parasite Program / Kerri Rivera, I was told that Pine Oil – Turpentine is mostly for Candida. The way my question was directly posed, and answered, helped me realize that even those who I consider somewhat knowledgeable do not understand that Turpentine is an Anti-Parasitic substance. The above video link with Dave Bardin helps to drive that point home with information about the uses of Pine Oil / Turpentine Gum Spirits around the home. In other words “Unwated Guests” are in our bodies, as well as in our homes. The same substances can solve both problems. Dealing with these “Unwanted Guests” can occur in a way that does not up end the ecological balance of our bodies, our homes, our planet.

Diamond Forrest, the suggested place to purchase Pine Oil, has other products made from the Pine Tree. The provider of Pine Oil in Canada is the Balsam Fir Tree. The two owners of Diamond Forrest will probably be able to answer how there products work in keeping a home free of ants, other insects and rodents. Pine Bark may be one. Our internal homes have similar issues as do our bodies. Helpful people at Diamond Forrest.

Do your research on Pine Oil / Turpentine Gum Spirits. My short experience with it is showing me it is a powerful healer. Here is one video that gives the basics on how to consume Pine Oil / Turpentine Gum Spirits This video is to the point, and informative. The instruction provider guides the viewer back to Dr. Jennifer Daniels, MD. There are a few interviews with Dr. Daniels on Youtube. She also has a free PDF called The Candida Cleanser, that is instructive as to the use of Pine Oil / Medicinal Turpentine Gum Spirits. If you find you do not like her personality, just try to see beyond her veneer. My feeling is most folks find her likable and engaging.


If you want a quick long term fix – there is none. Period. Medicinal Pine Oil is definitely not a quick fix. There is a back to every front. This is true of all kinds of medicine. However, the back side of Alternative – Herbal – Dietary, etc. Therapies are cleansing reactions. Living out these rough times can lead to a life of non- dependency on Pharmaceutical Drugs and weekly doctor visits as one gets older. Long term use of Prescription, or over the counter drugs, does not lead to healing. I know there are people who believe it does, but their definition of health is different than mine. The bar for health is very low today. As people get older, and some not so much older, the level of our peers health rarely improves. Having cancer is a norm for people of all ages. Even children. The Saint Jude Hospital commercials that flood the airwaves during the Xmas – Holiday season, here in the USA, are a testament to that very sad decline.

Do you believe the body can heal without the short or long term use of Drugs / Medications?  I am not talking about emergency and catastrophic care. I am talking about the drugs that ultimately numb our minds and bodies.  There are many obstacles to healing today. Frustratingly, these obstacles are in our air,water, and soil. It is impossible to not encounter them. With that on the table, I still believe it is possible to heal. I am seeing it in my own body. I am experiencing the benefits of Pine Oil / Turpentine Gum Spirits.





FYI, I began writing this post two months ago. Way before the death of Donna Pessin. Thank you.

Are you one of the many people looking for the perfect healing program? The one that is easy, that makes our lives all that we ever wanted them to be. The program that fills all of our expectations without any fuss or muss? Well, as far as I know it does not exist. Why do I say that? Because being ill, feeling lousy, aching  a bit, detoxing, cleansing are all part of healing [also known as a “healing crisis”]. When feeling crappy while detoxing it is hard to convince people all their suffering will lead to a better state of health. A “Healing Crisis” presents opportunities to fully experience this present moment. How? Well, deep healing brings up discomforts that often have to be faced. It is like peeling an onion to get to the core. Medicating symptoms away, long term, only causes more pain. A Health Crisis can be an opportunity to be in this moment. To fully experience the now. To simply be with the way things are. Sometimes that sucks. Is this a convincing argument for Western Medicine, or what? Doc, Just give me something to make it all better. And make that yesterday.


This is what Western Medicine – Big Pharma – The Doctor – The Hospital is selling: Feel better fast by expunging sickness and discomfort through taking drugs, having pain blocking injections, etcetera. If that does not work surgery is next. That is pretty much what Western Medicine defines as treatment. Well, you may argue that at least a person can feel better now, get out of pain and live life. I honestly understand how that could be very appealing. Unfortunately, for many Allopathic Medicine patients, this is not how things pan out. More often a positive outcome, for Western Medical patients, is not something to count on. This is especially true as the health of each generation declines. When there is a reprieve in symptoms from Western Medical Treatment it often does not last long. Western Medical Treatment, more and more often, is punctuated by a some major health crisis. That crisis may or may not seem connected to the previous one. It is connected in some way, of this I am sure.


At some point people have to pay a price for abusing the quick fix. Pay now with a more Holistic Approach, or pay later with the Traditional Western Medicine way. The price is pretty high either way, but with the Holistic Approach discomfort is part of finding the root cause of sickness, and healing it. The Western Approach can be likened to sopping up a leak without finding out what is causing it. Make it go away, I don’t want to deal with this. That is the mentality of a child wanting their Mommy to make it all better. I get it, and so do the Pharmaceutical Companies. Big Pharma knows the psyche of their audience very, very well.


Again, this post was originally written two months before the death of Donna Pessin.

Donna Pessin often, and very confusingly, talks out of both sides of her mouth without realizing it is a problem. Maybe she is just not hearing her own words being expressed that way. The UHP has at least one thing in common with Western Medicine in one very particular way. AT LEAST! What is it? Ms. Pessin tells her audience that her program will take care of it all. More clay, more herbs and more colloidal silver, plus all her “Crutches”. When that fails to give, the people I hear from on her program, the non-suffering experience she promises she says that one may need to see a doctor. Okay, I am fine with that. Medical intervention may be necessary. However, she claims that there is no such thing as a Healing Crisis. This claim creates feelings of frustration and failure among her followers. Especially when they feel downright sick and none of her “Crutches” work. This may sound familiar to many who have walked the halls of Western Medicine their whole lives. Given false promises to be healed by medications while they eat and drink as they want. If you read The Unique Healing 1 Book you will find it has many contradictions. One of those truly ironic contradictions is that Ms. Pessin does have some information and points of view that can be very helpful in understanding the cleansing process of the body. The irony is that there is so much obviously contradictory information right along side of it.


The Kalcker Parasite Protocol is not a quick fix. One needs to ride it out for at least 6 months to understand the process and follow the directions that are provided. The most powerful strength of the Kalcker Parasite Protocol is the understanding it provides, to those who will listen, that infectious organisms living in the body are at the crux of illness. If you do read Kerri Rivera’s Book [where the Kalcker Protocol is laid out] keep an open mind. Do you believe in your ability to heal? It is possible, even if that is not the message we get inundated with by the Western Medical Culture. Improving quality of health is possible, but the path to healing is unpredictable. The path to wellness is ongoing. True healing involves behavior and lifestyle changes, and that most often takes time to put into practice. For sure.







I am sitting in front of a laptop that I use daily. I do not understand how it works, or many of the components, but I rely on it. It helps me in many ways. There is a long list of things we all use that most of us do not technically understand. We can get pretty annoyed when they do not do what we want. So, I am inviting people who are researching GcMaf to do their due diligence in understanding the instructions before using it. One does not need to become an expert on GcMaf. There are ways to make GcMaf work better and they involve, most primarily, dietary restrictions. Read about them and decide if you are willing to use GcMaf as, I believe, it is intended. If you come from the world of Western Medicine you may view it as a drug that is going to fix everything. I think this is a very big mistake. That is not a realistic approach to anything, and will only set people up for disappointment, or worse.

HERE ARE TWO LINKS TO Gc Maf: click here and here for 1st Pro Engineering. I am not associated in any way with either company.


Some participants on different fb Forums complain about their symptoms after a dose of GcMaf. From what they reveal about themselves, many of them have used Western Medicine in their lifetimes. Some seem to have forgotten the suffering that goes with Allopathic Medical Protocols. GcMaf, as well as other Holistic Protocols, have a backside to it, as does all Western Medicine. The backside of GcMaf  will be made worse by not following the directions, not fully understanding what GcMaf does. Again, NOT complying with the dietary guidelines multiplies the immune system response, and complicates or nullifies the effects of GcMaf.


With Western Medical Cancer Treatment, patients often experience immediate suffering with the use of Chemotherapy and Radiation. Usually there are no dietary restrictions. One can comfort themselves with sugar, alcohol, refined carbs, cake, ice cream, wine.These days Medical Mary Jane is sometimes part of the Western Medical Protocol This is not the case with GcMaf.  GcMaf is like a detective that goes in and finds the root of the issue and smokes it out. Living through that can be uncomfortable. Feeling unwell is often referred to as detoxing, or a healing crisis.

Please take not that there are many ways to find comfort through nourishing foods that work well with taking GcMaf and healing outside the Western Medical Paradigm.

Using Chlorine Dioxide, as written about by Kerri Rivera and Dr. Andreas Kalcker, can be of great help to people using GcMaf and those who are not. Please check out CD:Autism and take advantage of the free download available there of the book outlining this program.

In order to heal it is important to have some support. Whether at home, from friends, and others on the same path. Forums on fb and the internet are ways to get some extra support. Most importantly information. This information must be weighed and measured. Please be aware, if you are not already, that these forums are populated with people that use the internet to gripe, complain and vent their, often hypochondriacal, fears. The combative inner terrain of parasites, viruses, and overgrowth of bacteria are looking for a place to act out. The internet is perfect for this purpose.  This is draining for all of us and does not support healing.

Since I have been part of the Kalcker Parasite Protocol [as featured in the book, Healing the Symptoms Known as Autism, by Kerri Rivera] I am often noticing how much easier [and pleasurable] it is for me to breathe. Easier to feel the desire to take some deep breaths throughout the day. It is less and less of an effort, happens much more spontaneously, more frequently.  I am without doubt that Conscious Breathing is an enjoyable and necessary adjunct for any kind of healing. This is true for everyone, on whatever road they are taking to get there. Hope you read the rest.


It is very confusing for some people to hear me admit, especially as a yoga teacher, that I did not find it comfortable, natural, or enjoyable to breathe. Not surprisingly, I found it hard to teach breathing to others. What do you mean you did not like to breathe? Well, it is more of a sense of annoyance when people would bring up the importance of Conscious Breathing in healing. One more thing to remember! What a very telling response. Hello, this one here has spent many days breathing shallowly. The Breath, an amazing gift, is so intrinsic to our existence. Annoyed is just how I felt when Conscious Breathing was reminded to me, recommended, and urged for me to do.  Why annoyance?  Well, it is easy to feel annoyed when nerves are frayed from the exposure to a very unfriendly internal environment. One that is oxygen deprived.


Breathing more deeply is a distraction from what is “really” important, like getting things done. Are you one of those people that feels better for checking one more thing off your “to do list”?  The beauty and release of deep tension from the breath is not understood or felt by most of us who live that way. The Breath is not recognized, or deeply appreciated, as the extremely necessary, invisible life line of energy that it is. We enter the world looking for our breath. We leave the world because it is no longer there, or maybe because it is no longer needed.


It is true that our major way to detoxify, on paper, is through Breathing. Unfortunately, the  condition of our air, indoors and outdoors, does not inspire deep relaxed breathing. Also, the lack of awareness about breathing creates a completely unaware and pretty ignorant population. So much time staring at cell phone, computer, play station and TV screens creates very shallow breathing. The focus is outside of us, not within. Staring at a screen does not connect people to their Breath.  Most importantly, in this world we all live, it is unlikely that deep breathing ALONE can not detoxify an unhealthy body by itself. Is it possible? I would not close my mind to it. What I can say for sure is that Conscious Deep Breathing certainly will expedite the process of any kind of healing. Physical and emotional. Emotional for sure.

I know for damn sure that most people do not know anything about the importance of Conscious Breathing for healing. It is so very important. If you do not consciously breathe you are putting great pressure on all organs and body systems. At a certain point, years of not breathing enough, exposure to  environmental toxin, poor diet, etcetera causes a backlog of toxic waste to accumulate throughout our bodies. At that point breathing is just barely passing as a rudimentary body function. More like sniffing than breathing. A function that is performed unconsciously. Onethat is taken way for granted. Without breathing, quite obviously, we can not survive. To breathe deeply is to flourish. Breathe more often and know you are doing the best you can for yourself  in this present moment.


A Cyclical Detox Program is designed to help the Organs of Elimination work more efficiently. To take pressure off of all Systems of the body. Behavior that once felt normal begins to feel not so normal. The robotic response to do more, think more, buy more, talk more, becomes less helpful. The idea of being in the present moment suddenly makes real sense. It is not only an idea in a book by Eckardt Tolle [ The Power of Now, A New Earth and others]. Breathing is one way of connecting to the present moment that benefits us physically and mentally. Conscious Breathing gives the word “Soul” a meaning you can feel for yourself. Soul is no longer some religious, or spiritual concept. Like Breathing, our soul becomes part of who we are.


Peace Arnold and Dan Brule. I have worked with Peace when living in NYC and on Skype. Peace is a big proponent of the work of Dan Brule.

From a Yoga point of view: Donna Farhi is an author [The Breathing Book] and Yoga Teacher. There are many others. This is a book I happen to like.

Thank you to Kerri Rivera and all the people involved in getting the word about one kind of deep healing. Check out the CD:Austism site to learn more.

Within the study of Traditional Medicines of different cultures, there is a deep and functional correlation between the Lungs and Large Intestines. Learning more would benefit anyone who is interested. The text,Between Heaven and Earth provides insight into the relationship between these two organs. Authors: Beinfield and Korngold.

If you are involved in a Parasite, Viral – Heavy Metal Detox Program you may at times feel mildly to very unhappy. Other adjectives such as agitated, grumpy, frustrated, angry, disgusted, and just plain down in the dumps. If it helps, you are SO not alone. When making big changes in life, through detoxifying, these feelings are normal. They are part of rebalancing your blood and brain chemistry. Using food, alcohol, caffeine, drugs and other addictive ways of dealing with these ups and downs only makes things worse. Often, the only way to find this out is to go down the road of Self Medication. To return to the same substances that have helped cause and added to the problem. It is called being human. I am not recommending you do that, but it happens. In the beginning of this road to health it can happen more than you may like.


As a child my parents would drive the three of us from New York City to visit my grandparents in Chicago. We would navigate through Pittsburgh, Pa. and get a grim glimpse of the steel mills and railroad yards. It is not a happy sight, or memory. It is a sea of Heavy Metal toxicity. Smokes stacks spewing big gray and dark black wafts of toxicity. How people have chosen to turn a blind eye to the effects of all this is disturbing, sad and angering. Al Gore nailed it,  An Inconvenient Truth is one phrase that sums it all up.


The house I grew up in, I can most certainly say, was infested with Mold. Picture Mold. It is not pretty or uplifting. Dank and musty, very often growing and going unseen due to where it is located. Mold is air born and invisible. The spores entering into the lungs, blood, the large intestines, and skin. Everywhere.


Having lived in New York City most of my life I have most definitely been exposed to Heavy Metals. At this point, on this amazing planet, almost every single person is exposed to Heavy Metals to one extent or another. If you are doing research for someone else on either of these subjects, Heavy Metals or Mold, take a look at yourself and your own exposure while you are at it. This is no joke.


I have written other posts making the point that people are not depressed. People feel depressed. That separation is crucial in order to be sane, self forgiving, and understand others. All of us are carrying joyless, toxic, inorganic Heavy Metal substances in our bodies. Our exposure to them, daily and in increasing quantities, determines how we feel and behave. We are not all the same and that very much involves our MENTAL CONDITIONING as children, and throughout our lives. Examples of mental conditioning, other than the family, is school, religion, the military, organized group sports, gymnastics, and disciplined dance studies. A very short list.

With many people, feeling depressed is not acceptable. This is usually due to a heavy social stigma. Not understanding that feeling down is a natural response in life. Getting stuck there is a problem. These individuals are often able to distract themselves from their feelings by focusing on how sick others are and using food and other substances as a buffer. They have not reached a breaking point. If they have children, their children may have reached theirs.

Please do not identify with feelings of hopelessness. At times, this can be very hard to do. Using strategies from the Klinghardt and Kalcker Protocols are ways to start the process physically. Of course, there are other programs out there. Most that I know of have similar ideas and strategies. Improving general health through lessening of Heavy Metals through strengthening Digestion and cleaning up Elimination. This is not a one shot deal. The way things stand today this is a lifetime commitment. Yes, a lifetime.

The Unique Healing Program is one method to investigate, but I can not recommend this program as it presently stands in structure and direction. The videos have some good information. The creator, Donna Pessin? Well, come to your own conclusions.


Enemas with Chlorine Dioxide, as discussed in the Kalcker Parasite Protocol [Kerri Rivera: CD Autism] are helpful for many. I hear from people that their mood lifts after doing them. This is my experience, as well.

The Klinghardt Protocol, along with the daily steps, has products they recommend. I am not talking about supplements. These products as well as the Klinghardt Regime for Cancer, Auto Immune, Lyme Disease, and other Poor Health Issues address removal of Heavy Metals, Parasites, Bacterial Overgrowth, Viruses. The whole gamut.

Environmedica / LL’s Magnetic Clay for Detoxing Heavy Metal through Clay Bath and Pack concoctions that can be very effective. You will only know if you try.


Do something already! Do something to address your health concerns. Otherwise, you may end up in a situation where you have no control. I have seen it happen many times. It is a self fulfilling prophecy that many have in the back of their minds. Sometimes it is something they just won’t shut up about. This happens either through their words or actions. Take action to change, or life will take action for you. I know this one first, second, and third hand.

Through my personal experience with pain, and with others clinically, I have learned that most people believe that where they feel pain is where treatment is needed. This is not the complete long or short term reality. Immediate treatment on an injured area is necessary and makes sense. Stepping on glass, an oven burn, bitten my an insect, or worse. Still, those situations involve much deeper nerve responses linked to Axions, Dendrites and much more. The smartest people I know do not seem to understand this concept of the origin of physical pain. “Mommy, make the pain go away” ain’t just for children. It takes an adult in pretty bad straights to call out loud for their Mother. War is one example. Advertisers, Big Pharma, and the AMA really understand this. They know our weaknesses better than we do. They know deep down most everyone wants  to be mothered, whatever that means to the individual. Please, just make the pain go away.


Welcome to the world of drugs, also known as Medications. Here in the USA Oxycontin was just approved to be okay to prescribe to children as young as 11 years of age by the FDA. No comment on the FDA from me. They sadly speak for themselves. Okay, incredulous is what I am feeling.

BTW, Pharmacies are often called Drug Stores in the USA. You have to have a sense of humor.

If you have been following some kind of Parasite or Bowel Cleansing Protocol and have intuitive concerns about detoxing Heavy Metals, you may find the Klinghardt Mercury Detox Protocol of great interest. I received this information about this protocol from someone involved with the creation of the Austism CD Program. Some of the ingredients may be familiar to you, and some may not. DO NOT DISCOUNT THE SIMPLICITY OF THESE INGREDIENTS. Especially in conjunction with the CD Austism Parasite Protocol, any other Parasite Protocol, or Bowel Cleansing. The effects of this Klinghardt Protocol can be powerful.


Clay is not THE primary Heavy Metal Detox agent. Other ingredients are necessary for detox. This is especially the case for people who can not tolerate clay, and for those who can. So what does that mean exactly? Well, I am not only referring to those who presently have Mercury / Amalgam fillings remaining in their mouths. This goes for those who have had them removed with the proper safeguards, and those that were not removed with those safeguards. Why? Because most people do not follow, or are not advised to take short and long term steps to detox from toxic substance that enter the bloodstream after the removal of these fillings. These toxic substances are released into our blood, cells, tissues, etcetera during the removal of the Mercury/Amalgam fillings, no matter how well the job was done. Toxins that leach out run the gamut. This, of course, includes bacteria surrounding the Amalgam filings. We can also be effected by other dental work materials (other than Mercury) remaining in our mouths. Just in case you may not know this, chewing, eating hot foods and other ingredients that enter our mouths often cause toxic materials to leach. This means that there is a constant exposure to these toxic materials daily. The real story is that we are all being exposed, on a daily basis, to Mercury and other Heavy Metals within our environment. With this information it would seem that everyone would benefit from some kind of Heavy Metal Detox. I am soft pedaling this warning.

There is so much more to say on this subject. It is complex for a myriad of reasons. One of those reasons is because parasites seem to be drawn to places in the body where fat is located. An example would be the Myelin Sheath surrounding our nerves. When a person does a Parasite Protocol they can often feel more nerve pain. The reason being that the parasites, virus, infectious material is drawn away from where the fatty Myelin Sheath is, or should be. Exposed sensitive tissue is what is left after the infections material is gone, or in the process of leaving. So, often what is left is partially or completely exposed nerve endings where the Myelin Sheath once was, or is in decline. A person may feel edgy, grumpy, easily startled, sharp pain, shooting pain, kind of dull – toothache, numb pain in extremities, etcetera.


Companies such as Remedy Link that make EDTA Suppositories, LL’s Magnetic Clay [ now called EnvironMedica] recommend taking some kind of Calcium Supplement when detoxing from Heavy Metals while using their products. I know there are people who do not look favorably upon taking Calcium Citrate and other inorganic minerals. For decades I was one of these people. Taking them while detoxing from Heavy Metals is a different story. I learned this first hand. This is one of the areas where Donna Pessin and her Unique Healing Program  had some helpful information. Donna has a direct clinical understanding of how Calcium Citrate can work while healing. Donna Pessin understands that Cal Cit and other inorganic minerals do not have to be life long companions to people. For those that it works for, Cal Cit and some of the other “Crutches” Donna Pessin talks about, are way better than using anti inflammatory prescribed and over the counter medications. N’est pas? Let me know.


Eating Sardines, Dulse, Using Sea Mineral, Sea Water, Celtic Sea Salt, Superfood Powders, homeopathics, Blended Salads, etcetera help replenish minerals. Taking HCL with Pepsin for better digestion is very helpful to improve digestion and nutrient absorption. These are  just a few things a person can do to rebuild and remineralize while detoxing.

Hopefully this cleaning information is helpful to someone. It is information that is easy to disregard when reading Kerri Rivera’s book due to the volume of information. Anyway, a reliable person, also following the Kalcker/Rivera Parasite Protocol, uses 91% Alcohol for sterilizing rather than the recommended Everclear. I have found the 91% Alcohol works extremely well, and is much less costly. In some countries you can NOT buy 91% Alcohol in a Pharmacy. In these situations Everclear may be you best bet for sterilizing. Everclear can usually be found in liquor stores. Everclear is a grain Alcohol.


Secondly, I read in Kerri Rivera’s book that Borax is a deep and thorough cleaner and disinfectant. I remembered Borax as a laundry booster from my childhood and bought some. It turns out Borax really works well for cleaning clothes and surfaces. It is inexpensive and simple to use. At the house we are renting there was a musty smell in the washer. I have used white vinegar and essential oils on numerous occasions. Nothing took the smell completely away. This had been going on for months. Since using the borax as a laundry booster the musty odor in the washer is gone. Also, and most importantly, our laundry feels different. It feels and looks fluffier, lighter, and cleaner. The water here is very high in lyme. Insoluble minerals such as lyme leave a residue. The Borax, not sure why, helps cut the lyme – insoluble mineral residue issue.


Check all this out, and so much more, in the book by Kerri Rivera and Dr. Andreas Kalcker [Parasite Protocol]. I believe using hot water and Borax is disinfecting. Really important for towels and sheets. This information is part of the Parasite Protocol. Also, Kerri Rivera mentions using the 91% Alcohol [Everclear – in her book] to clean bathrooms. Here in the USA the 91% Alcohol is  under 4 or 5 dollars for a 32 ounce bottle. This is available without a prescription at pharmacies. It is best transferred into a spray bottle for cleaning.
