Purified Petroleum (Kerosene)
Petroleum distillates 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 . 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. 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. 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
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.
However, most information on using kerosene as a cancer cure is in German, with very little translated into English. Here are some extracts from testimonials reported in the German illustrated weekly “7 TAGE” between September 1969 and
• A dog had a growth the size of a child’s fist on his neck and was given kerosene on sugar cubes. After two weeks, the growth disappeared.
• After breast cancer surgery, a woman (48) developed tumours in the uterus. After taking a daily teaspoon of kerosene she could stop using morphine, and after six weeks she aborted three tumours.
• Another woman took a teaspoonful of kerosene three times daily for two weeks, and repeated this after a two-week interruption. This not only cured her stomach ulcer, but also, to her surprise, her diabetes.
• A man cured a severe prostate problem (it is not mentioned if it was cancer) by taking one teaspoonful of kerosene each morning and evening for four weeks. Later, he overcame a stomach ulcer in the same way. His son successfully used kerosene
to cure a chronic bladder problem, and he cured his dog of leukaemia after a seven-week kerosene cure.
• After a woman (60) had her right breast removed, cancer started in her left breast. She periodically took a teaspoonful of kerosene three times daily for two weeks and then paused for 10 days. She had no more cancer problems and no more fear of
• A young woman (35) was sent home to die with an inoperable large tumour in the pancreas that extended to the adrenal glands. On the fourth day home, she briefly awoke from a coma and was given a spoonful of kerosene. Hours later she showed
the first signs of improvement, and after four days she wanted to get out of bed. The kerosene cure was continued for another 10 days before she was investigated at the hospital in Graz and later discharged as being healthy.
• After six days of using kerosene, a woman discharged dead tissue which was confirmed to consist of dead tumour cells (the type of cancer is not mentioned). After 14 days, the typical smell of terminal cancer disappeared. She took kerosene for 32,
25 and 14 days, with nine days of rest between each. As a pleasant side-effect, she was also cured of her rheumatic problems.
• A woman (68) had high blood pressure, heart and circulation problems and rheumatism. She could hardly walk. After four weeks on kerosene, she was asked by a friend what she was doing to look suddenly so much younger. People think she is in
her 40s. Her husband, who used to have a bent back, now runs like a youth. When she sometimes gets some pain in cold weather, she rubs her body with a sponge dipped in kerosene and lets it dry; this quickly removes any pain.
• A woman with colon cancer was scheduled for colostomy (to remove her colon and have a bag fitted). Instead, she started taking teaspoons of kerosene. Not much was happening, so she took about 50 ml in one go, together with a lot of honey in
milk. This was followed by four hours of diarrhoea with pus and blood and the abortion of her tumour.
Other testimonials mention overcoming bone cancer or myeloma, osteoporosis of the spinal column, severe digestive and gastro-intestinal problems, constant vomiting, rheumatism and sciatic problems.
Understanding The Cure-all Effect
The secret of the apparent cure-all effect of kerosene and turpentine may be understood as the reversal of the disease-causing effect of modern medicine. There is evidence that most of our modern diseases were rare in former centuries. Only
relatively few people had cancer, which only occasionally happened in old age, and asthma, allergies and autoimmune diseases were rare or absent as well. All this changed after World War II with the widespread use of antibiotics. While they targeted
bacteria, they encouraged the rise and spread of fungi and mycoplasmas which are at the root of most of our modern diseases.
Look at the forest or bushland trees. Some of their greatest enemies are fungi and parasites. As a defence, they developed various chemical strategies to kill or repel these attackers. We know and use these biochemicals as eucalyptus oil, neem oil, tea tree oil, pau d’arco extract, olive leaf extract, turpentine and other essential oils. Most of these oils are composed of hydrocarbons, just like kerosene. The main chemical in turpentine, alpha-pinene, is also present in the oils of rosemary and eucalyptus.
These volatile essential oils seem to have a stronger antifungal effect than kerosene, but frequent intake in high amounts can also cause some kidney damage. However, it needs to be understood that an antimicrobial program can only stop an autoimmune attack as a first and essential step in a healing process. It does not automatically repair the damage that has already been done. For instance, in diabetes type 1 and Parkinson’s disease, a healthy lifestyle is still needed to regenerate insulin-producing or dopamine-producing cells that have been destroyed; the same goes for joints that have been badly damaged with arthritis. Also, the debris of large internal tumours may require further detoxification and cleansing for safe removal.
How To Use Kerosene
How kerosene is taken and for how long is rather flexible. Some take it as needed, while others have a full course every year just as a precaution. A good way is to start with a few drops or half a teaspoonful, then continue with one teaspoon for a week or two; if not much seems to happen, then gradually increase up to one tablespoon for a while until ending with one teaspoonful, for a total duration of about six weeks or until your problem has sufficiently improved. It may be advisable to have a shorter or longer follow-up course two months later.
Commonly, kerosene is taken once a day either before breakfast or at bedtime. One woman supposedly cured her terminal cancer, with metastases all over the body, by drinking a glassful of kerosene followed by fruit juice. She wrote that it caused
extreme diarrhoea and vomiting for three days. However, this is a dangerous way of doing the treatment, as vomiting can easily cause kerosene to get into the lungs; this is the main reason why people can die from drinking kerosene.
High doses of microbicides may cause too much fungal die-off too suddenly, resulting in a “reaction” with nausea and fatigue. While this is generally good and part of the healing process, it is better to increase the dose only gradually to avoid or minimise strong, unpleasant reactions, although diarrhoea is very common at some stage. During a reaction, temporarily reduce or skip the remedy until recovered.
Kerosene is best taken on an empty or nearly empty stomach, as it floats on anything that is in the stomach and then may continue repeating for a longer time. I prefer it the traditional way with molasses: lick some molasses to coat your tongue, then
take a spoonful of kerosene and wash it down with a small amount of drink and food. For children, kerosene has been used by placing several drops on sugar before ingestion.
For arthritis, one part of kerosene may be diluted with one or two parts of olive oil and used as a rub or in a pack placed on painful areas. For throat infections, the pack may also be wrapped around the neck. If used undiluted, the kerosene may start burning after 10 to 60 minutes depending on the sensitivity of the skin and the kerosene’s boiling range and purity. If one keeps it on for long enough, the skin becomes red and will blister.
This is very effective in drawing out inflammatory pain from arthritic joints and promoting their healing. Cover the reddened skin with vitamin E oil until healed. Also, tumours may be covered with diluted or undiluted kerosene packs. For toe and nail fungus as well as fungal infections of the skin, the affected parts may be soaked in concentrated or diluted kerosene or turpentine. Candida infections or thrush in the mouth or vagina may be treated by coating or rinsing with diluted kerosene or turpentine.
In a personal communication I was given the following information: “My grandmother used to regularly paint our sore throats with kerosene, using a wing or tail feather taken from a chook. I remember my throat being painted as a matter of course as a young boy, as were [the throats of] the rest of the family – and it worked.” I also received similar comments from others, and it was usually the grandmother who initiated this therapy.
The very light product which Paula Ganner apparently recommended is best for cleaning the blood, as it is quickly absorbed in the stomach. This also works well with teaspoon-doses of the low-odour kerosene. However, for cleaning the bowel of cancer, Candida or parasites, it may be necessary to take up to a tablespoonful at a time. If only a teaspoonful is taken, most of the lighter hydrocarbons will already be absorbed in the stomach and not enough will reach the large intestines. Odourless kerosene with a higher boiling range may also be tried for this purpose, but it is not known if it is as effective as lighter varieties. One may try a spoonful daily for several weeks, but cut back if this causes diarrhoea.
Liquid paraffin or paraffin oil, with a boiling point over 300°C, is available from pharmacies and may be used as a laxative or for skin protection. It is not useful for killing microbes but, like odourless kerosene, it may be used during a cleansing period to bind fat-soluble toxins released from the liver. This supposedly makes cleansing more effective by preventing re-absorption of such waste products. Up to a tablespoonful may be tried daily, or until diarrhoea occurs. Also products with a lower boiling range stimulate the liver to release toxins, provided that sufficient is taken to pass through the bowel.
