Urine Therapy - Recycling

Today marked my 71st day on Urine Therapy.

________________________________________
Odds are you're among the 27 million Americans who recycle. Separating bottles, cans, plastic containers, newspapers, maybe even composting your kitchen and garden scraps, are just a few of the ways you can show respect for your earthly home. But would you be willing to take the act of recycling a step further and internally honor your bodily home, if it meant you'd have more energy, a stronger immune system, and an ageless complexion? Of course you would. Well, what if I said you can have all this and more for the mere cost of - a cupful of urine? A little hard to swallow? Well, it's true. It's urine therapy (UT), and all it takes is eight ounces a day and an unwavering pledge to throw out some of the distaste you associate with the human filtering system.
That's what I did, and now, four years later, I'm a different person. I'm more in tune with my body's needs and functions, and no longer anemic or hypoglycemic. I rarely get colds, haven't had the flu in years, and the yeast infection that had long been plaguing me is gone. UT has even heightened my connection to my daily yoga practice. I now feel as healthy and strong as my headstand.
Even so, I admit that the road to health involved more than a few dead ends. I initially heard about urine therapy when I was living in Japan. I was interviewing Dr. Ryosuku Uryu, a respected naturopath, for an article in a Tokyo magazine. The interview proceeded just fine until he mentioned "pee drinking."
I laughed, and he launched into an earnest monologue on the virtues of urine therapy. Weeks later, still haunted by his heartfelt narrative of personal and clinical success, I decided to give urine a more serious look. At Dr. Uryu's counsel, I began the therapy gradually, rubbing my urine on my face at night (I refused to use it in the morning because I was terrified people would smell me on the trains), until I'd worked up enough courage to actually drink it. I can still remember the effort it took not to throw up that first morning. Believe me, it was all downstream from there.
If you got rid of it, why put it back?
Contrary to what we learn in biology, urine isn't a dirty byproduct of intestinal work. Instead, it's a highly usable, sterile fluid that comes from the kidneys. The main function of the kidneys is to balance and filter the blood. Urine, the kidneys' byproduct, is made from life-sustaining ingredients, like vitamins, minerals, proteins, enzymes, hormones, antibodies, and amino acids - estimated to be thousands of compounds in all. For example, urine, also the primary component of amniotic fluid, contains DHEA (the wonder steroid heralded with antiaging and anticancer properties), allantoin (added to creams and ointments to promote wound healing), factor S (used to naturally induce sleep), gastric secretary depressants (which combat ulcer growth), urokinase (an enzyme known to dissolve blood clots), and, of course, urea (a key constituent in many antibacterial substances). Some scientists even suggest that uric acid, the most touted property of urine, may be an instrumental ingredient that allows humans to live longer than most other mammals.
While this culture continues to call it pee, piss, wee-wee, tinkle, and number one, there are others who speak more poetically of urine, calling it, among other things, the soma beverage, the mother of medicine, the water of life, living water within, life elixir, the water of Shiva, and the water of a thousand flowers. Whatever its name, this drugless self-remedy appears in all the ancient religious and medical texts of recorded history - the earliest of which is attributed to the 5,000-year-old vedic text known as the Damar Tantra.
"Drink waters out of thine own cistern, and running waters out of thine own well," proclaims a proverb from the Old Testament. "The soma beverage is a universal remedy," declares the Atharva Veda. Hippocrates taught people to support their body's intrinsic defenses and to try natural interventions, such as urine, before resorting to stronger measures. The Romans, according the historian Suetonius, valued urine so much that the emperor placed a tax on every drop collected from public reservoirs. Wealthy French women bathed in it, and Chinese doctors used it to soothe sore throats. And, in the 19th century, French chemist Fourcroy devoted an entire volume to the properties of human urine, because, in his words, the "urine of man ... has furnished the most singular discoveries to chemistry ... as well as to the art of healing."
UT even managed to sneak into American lore. In 1810, for example, a Dr. Richard Hazeltine wrote of a proven healing agent used by "affectionate" mothers (as well as himself) called a "buttered flip" - a mixture of recent urine, hot water, honey, and a little butter. In addition, there are isolated stories of Native Americans using it, and tales of European and African-American grandmothers massaging it into their skin to stay beautiful. More recently, TV archived the benefits of urine therapy in 1978 when India's former prime minister Moraii Desai told a shocked Dan Rather and his 60 Minutes viewing audience of the remarkable effects of drinking urine, going so far as to say UT was the perfect way to help the millions of Indians unable to afford medical care.
Whose urine is it anyway?
Unequivocally the most primitive and primordial form of internal medicine, urine was isolated as a healing agent around 1773. UT has since been supported by dozens of successful research trials. According to Martha Christy, author of Your Own Perfect Medicine, urine is highly respected by mainstream medical scientists and researchers, even if the general public isn't aware of its benefits. To see for yourself, check out the list of ingredients in face creams, shampoos, antibacterial ointments, sleeping medicines, diuretics, estrogen supplements, and other grooming products and over-the-counter medications on the shelves today. You will find many of the components of urine listed there.
Although I like to avoid conspiracy theories, it's hard not to wonder why so few people know about urine therapy. Could it be there's no money to be made from it? Christy reports that the bulk of the scientific research on UT has been financed by the pharmaceutical industry "with the hope of isolating substances for specific cures so they can be produced artificially and marketed as a new product." The Ares-Serono Group, one of the world's largest fertility-drug companies, produces the fertility hormone drug Pergonal from the urine of post-menopausal women in Italy, Spain, Brazil, and Argentina. In 1992 the company reported earnings of $855 million, and women pay up to $1,400 per month for this urine extract. The U.S. company Enzymes of America uses a special filter to collect the proteins from men's urinals in the 10,000 portable outhouses owned by its subsidiary firm, Porta-John. They've turned their collections into a pricey heart attack medicine called Urokinase.
Yet, even supposing money and patents weren't an issue, a manufactured substance is no match for what comes out of your own body. No matter what companies claim, no synthetic works as well as your own urine: You and only you produce the natural vaccines, anticancer agents, hormone balancers, and allergy relievers in the exact forms you need. Furthermore, milligram per milligram, urine is a better supplement to your diet than vitamins, because the vitamins in urine have already been digested and synthesized. Besides, your own urine won't produce any lasting side effects - unlike, for example, urokinase, which causes abnormal bleeding. On top of all this, your urine has antibodies that can stop a disease long before recognizable signs or symptoms could be detected by modern technology.
UT tackles the root of a problem or imbalance rather than merely masking its symptoms by reinforcing the autoinoculation - or more simply, homeopathic - actions of the immune system. As cells discharge traces of diseased substances and allow them to escape into healthy tissues, leukocyte activity increases and creates a powerful antigen serum, remnants of which are passed into the urine. To take one of Christy's examples, let's say you take a pill to help you sleep, even though, unbeknownst to you, your insomnia is caused by an undiagnosed food allergy. Thanks to the pill, you start sleeping again, but after a while, fearful of becoming over-reliant on the drug, you stop taking it. Boom, you're back to counting sheep. Using UT, both of your ills - sleep deprivation and food allergies - can be overcome at once. Your urine offers the exact antibodies you need to eradicate your allergy and provides factor S to naturally induce sleep. All this for free.
Please pass the pee
For the truly faint of stomach, a homeopathic tincture acts as a safe prelude to UT. The more adventuresome can start out with one ounce and slowly work up to six or eight ounces daily. Drink your urine first thing in the morning, since hormonal secretions increase at night, when the body is totally relaxed and repairing itself. Always collect the intermediate flow and drink it right away; don't boil or dilute it, as this destroys or reduces urine's most beneficial properties. Some experts suggest waiting at least 15 minutes after UT before eating or drinking - although I have to admit I bend the rules a little and brush my teeth immediately afterward.
Personally, I like to create a ritual around drinking my urine. Although this sounds a bit weird, I go into the bathroom alone and pee into a round glass cup (a special one with the earth etched on it). Before drinking, I hold it to my heart, close my eyes, and connect with the intrinsic power of my body, thanking myself for healing. In this way, I begin every day in communion with myself.
UT works best with adequate sleep, meditation, and exercise, and, like any other natural technique, it requires patience, discipline, and self-love. Also, the better your diet, the better the taste, although even within the parameters of a clean, preferably vegetarian, diet - one free of refined sugars, caffeine, nicotine, preservatives, and drugs (since these substances can cause toxic build-up) - the flavors of urine will vary: The morning after miso soup, my urine tastes particularly strong and salty; likewise, after curry, it tends to be spicy sweet. Although it does come out bitter at times, the only time I have any real difficulty is when I eat asparagus (I'll let you figure this one out). Most of the time, it has a subtle, slightly salty taste, and its color reminds me of an oaky, full-bodied chardonnay.
Although I didn't experience it, the first-time recipient of UT will sometimes undergo a "healing crisis." Anytime during the first month, you may experience discomfort while the body releases long-held toxins. Symptoms like headaches, nausea, rashes, fever, diarrhea, vomiting, boils, and sweating are just part of the natural release process and well worth the final results. The best way to get through the detox period is to monitor your body's changes and regulate your UT intake accordingly, cutting back the amount until your symptoms subside.
Other effective uses of urine include: topical applications (it's best to store it for a couple of days first, because bacterial fermentation enhances its healing effects), rubbings, foot baths, enemas, gargling, douching, eye and ear drops, and sniffing. I still use my urine as a night-time face treatment. I have uncovered studies showing that urine, more specifically urea, increases the water binding capacity of the skin, and I often get compliments on my smooth, clear complexion. Believe it or not, I've even read that spraying fruits and vegetables with a urine and water solution will keep them bug- and fungus-free, and, most importantly, will cleanse them of chemical sprays.
Both externally and internally, urine functions as an excellent antidote for infections, skin ulcers, wounds, burns, snake bites, and insect stings. I learned this - long before I heard of UT - on a summer field trip to the beach. About 10 of us were walking along the water with a counselor, when one my friends stepped on a dead jellyfish. Much to my amazement, the counselor lifted up his shorts (carefully, so none of us kids saw anything) and peed on my friend's swelling foot. Within seconds my friend forgot about the jellyfish and started screaming about the treatment. To this day, I wonder if this unusual act of first aid was the seed that prepared me to accept urine therapy some 17 years later.
It may save your life
But more than just a rescue aid or supplement for the healthy, UT is also for those with chronic, acute, even severe illnesses. A practicing urine therapist in the 1930s and '40s and author of The Water of life, a nonscientific book of case studies, Dr. John Armstrong showed that urine fasts could heal just about any disease that wasn't caused by traumatism or structural defects. He was especially fond of urine fasts, believing them superior to other liquid fasts because of urine's ability to rebuild as well as cleanse. And he could make such claims, since he not only cured others using urine fasts, but he cured himself of both tuberculosis and diabetes - something years of allopathic treatments had failed to do.
As with all "do it yourself" healing, UT recipients often become infused with a vitality they feel compelled to share. Powerful testimonials support every book I have read about UT, the most convincing of them coming from those whom conventional medicine had sentenced to death. Christy writes of a woman with an inoperable uterine tumor who drank nothing but her urine for seven days and made the tumor disappear, and of another "terminal" patient with metastatic cancer of the liver who, in the throes of hepatitis and a high fever, decided she had nothing to lose by drinking her morning urine: "By the fifth day, I felt more energetic, by the 10th, I returned to the doctor. He couldn't believe I was alive."
The testimonials of PWAs (people with AIDS) are especially potent. In Urine-Therapy: It May Save Your Life, author Beatrice Bartnett, a naturopathic and chiropractic physician who cofounded the Water of Life Institute in Florida, cites a case of a man whose T-cell count went from 285 to 489 in four months while treating with UT alone. Other books document successful results from using UT to combat Karposi's sarcoma lesions, thrush, intestinal parasites, Epstein-Barr, herpes, diarrhea, and colitis. Researchers believe that UT works so well with AIDS and its opportunistic viruses because the urine of a PWA not only has anticancer agents, such as DHEA, retine, antieoplastons, uric acid, H-11 extract, and HUD (human urine's derivative), but it also contains the antibodies to HIV-1, a fact discovered in 1988 by Dr. Alvin Friedman Kien at the New York University Medical School.
In study after study, UT comes across as nothing short of miraculous. It fights free-radicals, eases morning sickness, acts as a diuretic, and has redressed a remarkable number of ailments, including arthritis, hair loss, jaundice, eczema, leprosy, gangrene, malaria, venereal diseases, menstrual irregularities, candida, warts, prostate problems, obesity, asthma, migraines, toxemia, rabies, peptic ulcers, multiple sclerosis, and heart disease. Some even profess it enhances spiritual growth. The general theme is one of a therapy that works when all others have failed.
UT is a medicine we always have at our disposal (so to speak), one that can actually save our life in an emergency. During Jordan's Nine-Day War, Newsweek reported that the Red Crescent, the Islamic equivalent of the Red Cross, told the nation on public radio: Your children are expiring of thirst; we cannot help you except by telling you that you may be able to save their lives by letting them drink their own urine. A friend of mine benefited from a similar understanding when he became sick in the middle of an unauthorized bicycle tour through the back roads of China. In his words, "I was alone, feverish, completely dehydrated, and unable to get help for myself. Then I remembered urine therapy, and after a few weeks of my own urine, I was strong enough to continue my ride." I don't know about you, but I'd say pee drinking sure beats the alternative in these two situations.
I realize accepting UT as the saving water of life or as the elixir that allows yogis to traverse great deserts doesn't mean you're ready to wake up tomorrow and have yourself a cup of pee. Even so, whether you're curious or completely grossed out, vast rewards are waiting. Give yourself a chance to get comfortable with the idea. When I got started, I imagined myself as a baby floating in the waters of my mother's urine, but if this doesn't work for you, try returning to the recycling analogy. Think of UT as composting, where leftovers are miraculously turned into prized nutrition. Remember, nature rarely wastes a thing.

Urine Therapy - Cure For Acne

Today marked my 70th day on Urine Therapy.

_________________________________________

Individuals that have acne often try various methods to combat the problem. It's not just teenagers that suffer from acne but adults also cope with the problem of pimples, blisters, cysts, and scarring. Many people with acne discover that various washes, cleansers, medications, and other products fail to provide them with the benefits that improve their acne.
One particular treatment that has been used by thousands of people looking for a remedy to their acne is urine therapy. Urine therapy is a practice that is popular in alternative medicine. Urine therapy goes by multiple names including urotherapy, uropathy and urinotherapy. A person that practices this uses his or her own urine for cosmetic or medicinal purposes.
For medicinal purposes, an individual might drink their own urine in an attempt to heal their bodies of various illnesses. However, when it comes to acne, this therapy is used for cosmetic purposes and is massaged into the skin. The practice has been used by ancient cultures, but is fairly new for modern women and men who are looking for a natural cure to their acne.
To conduct urine therapy, the first step is to collect your urine. It is recommended that the person use their first urine of the day, which normally occurs early in the morning. After a person has collected their urine in a container, they should use a cotton ball and apply the urine to their skin. Individuals that want to use the urine as a toner should allow the urine to sit on the skin for a few minutes before rinsing it off.
People that practice uropathy sometimes report feeling stinging or tingling on the skin. Others report feeling a refreshing experience as the urine is applied to the face. Some of the immediate symptoms of urine therapy include a reduction in inflammation and irritations. Some practitioners of urine therapy have noticed a dramatic improvement in their skin.
Although most people won't try uropathy unless they feel incredibly desperate, it is still a possible option when the acne scars simply won't go away. Urine therapy is absolutely free. It is one of the most natural ways that a person can attempt to relieve their acne.

Urine Therapy

Today marked my 65th day on Urine Therapy.

_____________________________
Definition
Urine therapy is the use of one's urine, internally or externally, to heal wounds or alleviate disease symptoms and/or for overall well-being. It is also called uropathy, auto-urine therapy, amaroli, or shivambu.
Origins
References to the use of urine for medicinal purposes can be traced to ancient Egyptian, Chinese, Aztec, and Hindu histories. Proponents also point to Proverbs 5:15 in the Old Testament of the Bible: "Drink water from thy own cistern, and the streams of thy own well."
As an integral part of the ayurvedic tradition of yoga, urine therapy is known as amaroli. Ayurvedic yogis are encouraged to drink their own urine between 4 and 6 A.M. in the morning in the belief that the hormones ingested will facilitate a meditative state.
The rationale of the therapy is that urine is a byproduct of blood filtration, not excess water from consumed food and liquid. In fact, the medical term for urine is plasma ultrafiltrate. Blood filled with nutrients passes through the liver where toxins are filtered out and excreted as solid waste matter. This purified blood then travels to the kidneys where any excess elements form urine and are then eliminated from the body. As urine passes through the urethra, it is a sterile solution. Ninety-five percent of it is water; the remaining five percent is a combination of urea, vitamins, minerals, enzymes, hormones, proteins, and antibodies. Urine therapy advocates argue that the presence of these nutrients are proof of urine's medicinal powers.
Urea is an antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral agent that forms when the body balances its ratio of sodium chloride to water. Urea is often used to make ointments and lotions for its properties of reducing inflammation and ability to kill bacteria. It can be duplicated under laboratory conditions by dissolving calcium cyanamid in water, and then heated under high pressure to produce a compound of urea and calcium hydroxide.

Urine Therapy - Children

Today marked my 64th day on Urine Therapy.

________________________________
urine from children. The urine from a child is often very pure,
especially if the child follows a healthy diet. In some cases, the
urine from a child can also be used in the external massage
application for the seriously ill who cannot produce enough of their
own urine.

Urine from different people usually does not differ much in its
ingredients, which is why the urine from one person will also to some
extent work for somebody else. However, your own urine contains
personal, characteristic substances and provides the particular
information the body needs in order to carry out the healing process
as effectively as possible.

In general, it is no problem to combine urine therapy with any other
form of natural treatment. This also applies to the use of nutritional
supplements as long as they are natural. One should refrain from any
chemically manufactured supplements. Experience has shown that the use
of vitamin supplements in combination with the practise of urine
therapy can considerably cut down the amount of supplements you need
to take, because of the recycling effect. Many substances, such as
vitamins and enzymes, act as carriers for other. Urine therapy can
also be seen as a form of self--vaccination: certain bodily substances
which have been removed from the body, some of which may have been
produced as a result of illness, are rein-introduced into the body in
small amounts. These substances are reabsorbed into the blood through
either the intestines or the skin. According to this hypothesis, the
immune system is then given the chance to react appropriately.

Urine Therapy - Natural Health

Today marked my 63th day on Urine Therapy.


___________________________________________

Urine Therapy is a form of natural therapy that aims to promote natural health- it is considered an alternative and natural treatment used to enhance a happy and healthy lifestyle.
The use of urine for medicinal purposes can be traced to societies in ancient Egypt, China, Hindu and Aztec histories. Advocates also cite a prominent verse in the Bible: ‘Drink water from thine own cistern and the streams of thine own well”.
Urine therapy is also known as amaroli and it is an integral part of the ayurvedic tradition of yoga. Yogis who follow Ayurveda are advised to drink the urine they excrete between 4 and 6 in the morning because the hormones released are propitious in inducing the meditative state of mind.
The rationale behind urine therapy is quite simple and persuasive. Urine is believed to be a by product of blood filtration. It is NOT excess water that is released by the body. When blood filled with nutrients pass through the liver, the toxins are filtered out and are excreted as solid waste. The purified blood then travels to the kidney where excess nutrients are eliminated from the body. The medical name of urine is Plasma ultrafiltrate. 95% of this liquid is water and the rest is a mixture of nutrients, urea, minerals, enzymes, antibodies and hormones.
Urine consists of urea, which is an antifungal, antibacterial and antiviral agent. Urea is produced when the body tries to balance the ratio of sodium chloride with water. Because of its ability to kill bacteria and limit inflammation, urea is often used in ointments and lotions.
Urine can be used internally or applied externally. For internal use, it is necessary to collect the morning’s first sample. A sterile container is used, and with a dropper the patient places anywhere between 5-10 drops under his tongue. The usual system is to use 1-5 drops on the first day, followed by 5-10 drops on the second day, 5-10 drops on the morning of the third day and 5-10 drops on the evening of the third day.
Homeopathic urine therapy dilutes the urine with distilled water and this diluted solution is placed under the tongue till there is a reduction in symptoms.
Precautions are taken to ensure the purity and quality of the urine. The first urine of the day and the mid-stream urine is the best sample. Before collecting the sample, it is necessary to wash the genital area thoroughly. After taking the urine into the body, individuals should refrain from eating anything for at least half an hour.
For external application, new or old urine can be used. Since older urine has a higher concentration of Ammonia, it is more effective against skin diseases and rashes. To make the urine old, it should be stored in a dark bottle and closed tightly and kept away from the sun for 3-4 days. A small amount of the solution is applied directly on the skin. It can also be sprayed on the skin or added to skin lotions, cream or moisturizers. Doctors advise against the use of soap immediately after applying urine on the skin.
Urine is never injected into the body. Since urine therapy depends on the gradual introduction of urine into the body, a sudden introduction of urine into the bloodstream can cause damage.
Urine therapy is supposed to cure a variety of ailments ranging from arthritis, cancer, hepatitis, multiple sclerosis, eczema, psoriasis, diabetes, herpes and adrenal failure. It is commonly used to combat venom from snakebites and beestings. Urine is the main ingredient in infertility drugs.

Urine Therapy

Today marked my 62nd day on Urine Therapy.

__________________________________________
Even the allopathic doctors in the west, have accepted that to fight and clear toxins from the body, our own body creates antibodies. Now, during sleep the computer of our body manufactures such medicine according to specific requirements of the individual and is present in a big quantity in the first urine in the morning. And so, if the first urine is drunk, the body will get all its requirements, salts, etc. This is the principle of this therapy. Realising its great medicinal value, costly life saving injections are prepared from urine in Japan.
It may be surprising to note that even in the religious scriptures like Shivpuran, Mahabharat, Bible, etc., it is mentioned that this urine is the nectar of life and details about how to drink the same are very well narrated in Shivpuran. Even the culprits know the benefit of the urine. Whenever they are caught, the first thing they do, is to drink their own urine, so that when they get a heavy beating, they can recover from it very soon. Even in long fasting, it is advised to drink one's urine.
Sri Morarjibhai Desai, the former Prime Minister of India and a great propagator of this Urine therapy, used to drink his urine and massage the same on his body for 40 years till his death at the age of 100. That was the secret of his reddishness till the last minute. His skin was healthy and had no wrinkles. It was smooth and glowing.
At the age of 61, cataract started in his eyes. He started using his urine, as eye-wash and cured his cataract and had no need to get cataract removed till the age of 91-thus he prevented cataract formation for 30 years.
In all types of chronic diseases, it is advisable to drink one's urine. Dr Beatrice Barter of U.S.A claims to have cured even patients of AIDS with urine therapy. I am of the opinion, that if treatment mentioned in this book for cancer of blood and thalasemmia is combined with this urine therapy, the problem of AIDS can be controlled quite easily and rapidly.
How to Use : Let the first few drops pass. Then collect the urine in a clean glass /tumbler or in hands and drink it.
For Eyes : Keep it in an eye glass or in the palm and use it as an eye wash after the urine has cooled down. It is effective to keep eyes in good condition and to cure the beginning of cataract.
Teeth : For any types of problems of teeth-even when teeth are shaking, gargle this urine for at least five minutes. Massage it on the gums.
Care of Hair : Massaging of urine on hair and scalp makes the hair soft and silky, clears dandruff, germs, etc.
It can be applied on the face before a shave as a shaving cream and it will give a clean smooth shave and afterwards can also be used as after shave lotion. Such an application enhances the glow of face, and so can be very well used by both men and women. It will be found to be one of the best shampoos.
Skin Problems : It is one of the best medicines for the skin. In the book, the use of urine in syphilis, gangrene, white spots, etc. has been separately explained.
How to Apply on Skin : Warm the first urine, let it cool down. The crust has to be removed. Soak cotton in this lukewarm urine and massage it on affected parts for 2 to 5 minutes. Before doing so, massage ice on the affected parts for 2 to 3 minutes. Afterwards, wash with clean water.
At the same if two to three cups of green juice is drunk daily and colour treatment is taken the results are astounding; it even cures white spots.

Urine Therapy

Today marked my 61st day on Urine Therapy.

__________________________________________
Thousands of people drink their own urine and massage their skin with their own urine. Though urine therapy is no longer as popular as it used to be in the latter years of the Soviet Union, the practice is still in vogue with many citizens of Russia. There are no statistics whatsoever on the use of one’s own urine as a medicine. Practitioners of urine therapy otherwise known as uropaths reveal no information regarding detrimental effects of urinotherapy on their well-being. On the contrary, the former promoters of the practice keep praising at length its alleged preventive and curative powers. They believe urine is the source of health, strength, beauty and longevity. They like citing ancient texts to point up the assertions.
Below are some of the instructions and recommendations contained in the so-called “classical texts” on urine therapy.
“The body of a person who drinks the urine and rubs it into his skin for three years will be filled with strength and splendor. The person will be endowed with eloquence; he will also possess knowledge of arts and sciences.”
“It is possible to cure any disease by drawing the urine through the nostrils every morning. Digestion will improve and the whole body will grow stronger.”
A person will live a long life if he massages his entire body with his own urine three times in daytime and three times at night.”
Promoters of urine therapy seem to form the basis of the practice by citing extracts from ancient wisdom. On the face of it, their arguments purport to be logical. But all of them boil down to the same argumentation pattern: that is correct, urine is the waste matter sent out of the body by the kidneys through the bladder. Not unlike urine, manure is the waste matter too. At the same time, manure can have a beneficial effect on a plant if used as a substance to fertilize soil.
Perhaps I am slightly exaggerating the method for effect yet its logic remains unchanged. Even if you are ready to accept this kind of reasoning, you may still feel too squeamish to start a course of urine therapy. Incidentally, practitioners of urine therapy say that one’s squeamishness rests on stereotypes only. In other words, you are not supposed to confuse a toilet with a cesspool.
As it turned out, the disgusting smell of our urine is our own fault because “our wrong diet does damage to the chemical makeup of the excreted urine.” Researcher/practitioner Y. Frolov says he did his best trying to examine the issue of urine therapy from an (ostensibly) unbiased point of view. His verdict: the practice is worth trying. Frolov suggests we look at the liquid from a fresh angle and try to get used to it. Here are useful tips for the beginners by courtesy of Y. Frolov:
“You can start by sprinkling some urine over your hands so that you may feel its texture. Then smell the urine and check your reaction. If you feel nauseous, continue the procedure for a period of time until reaction starts to change for the better. Once the smell stops nauseating you and your attitude toward urine becomes neutral, use a dropper a put a bit of urine on your tongue.
You might as well like the taste of urine. Continue sampling until all your negative and positive emotions disappear and you start feeling completely neutral toward the urine. The technique will give your conscious a chance to stay pristine, without any thought, convention or some other nuisance interfering with the process.”
Urinating on superficial burns and stings has been commonly believed to be a popular folk remedy. Promoters of urine therapy say that “urine’s antiseptic properties cause mild burning and stinging sensations of the skin if the urine is applied to a cut or as an aftershave. It is still unclear which of the constituents of urine works as a topical antiseptic. Scientists still have to discover that constituent.”
Researcher Rinad Minvaleyev offers a different explanation of urine’s antiseptic properties. He suggests taking a closer look at the chemical makeup of urine. Aside from the main components – urea and water – urine also contains some quantities of hormones and metabolites, including corticosteroids. Corticosteroids are used in a variety of antiseptic ointments and creams, which can destroy germs and harmful microorganisms. Urine has a similar effect on the damaged skin when it comes to treatment of superficial burns, cuts and stings.
So have no fear when peeing on your finger if you get it burned. However, please make sure that your urine is clean and healthy. In other words, do not use your own urine as an aseptic if you have a kidney infection or a similar malady.

Urine Therapy - Water of Life

Today marked my 59th day on Urine Therapy.

_________________________________________________

Urine Therapy
The Water of Life
The following is adapted from the pamphlet "Urine-Therapy: It May Save Your Life." by Dr. Beatrice Bartnett.

Urine therapy is a very ancient and drugless form of intrinsic medicine. Its application is so simple that it can be done anywhere and at any time. Urine has been used as a healing agent in practically all civilisations and cultures. It seemingly dies, only to reappear again time after time. Often it is called the Water of Life, Living Water Within or simply Life Elixir. In many religions it is believed that this water will enhance one's spiritual growth and even give one everlasting life.

The kidney's major function is to balance all the elements in your blood. It takes all excess amounts of vital substances out of the blood as well as excess amounts of water. The water and these vital substances then form urine.

Urine is filled with vital elements. It is not waste. The liver detoxifies the blood and excretes the toxins into the colon. The kidneys balance the blood's vital substances and water level. In short, urine is simply filtered blood. It contains in its fresh condition, only those chemicals and compounds of the blood in circulation in each of us.

The morning urine is the richest and best urine to drink. This is partially due to the greater level of hormonal secretion that takes place in the late night hours when the body is totally relaxed and repairing itself.

Fortunately, Urine-Therapy is very simple in its application.

Urine-Therapy consists of two basic parts: the internal application and the external application. Both parts complement each other and are necessary for best results. There are many different ways of using urine After the initial experience one will find his or her own personal way of application. Because urine is produced to one's needs, only your urine should be taken for internal use.

Now, a good way to undo conditioned behaviour with regard to perception of urine is to rinse, gargle and swish with fresh urine. The flavour, consistency, and feeling of the experience will become familiar after a while, and the disgust to your own rich bodily fluids will be a thing of the past. Rubbing urine into the body (fresh or stale) is also a wonderful way to become accustomed to your living water.

If the idea of drinking one's own water is still a problem, pour a few ounces into the morning juice. This solution should be drunk as soon as possible, for urine breaks down very rapidly. Try to graduate from drinking the dilution to drinking it straight. Some people prefer to take it straight, followed by a "chaser" of pure water or some other healthy liquid.

Saying "thank you" to your body just before drinking urine will help you to realise the value of this golden liquid. Your body produced it for you. Celebrate life and put the urine into a beautiful wine glass. After all, it is the most valuable water on earth.

1. Drinking.
The mid stream of the first morning urine is taken. Begin with two-three ounces and increase it to your personal, comfortable level.
2. Fasts.
Fasts with urine and water are practised for one or more days. J.W.Armstrong, a renowned urine therapist from England, lets his patients fast for up to 45 days. Fasts are only recommend under trained, medical supervision.
3. Enemas.
The easiest way to take an enema is with a syringe containing two-three ounces of urine. The urine is kept in the colon for as long as possible.
4. Gargle.
Urine is kept in the mouth 20-30 minutes, or as long as possible, for gum problems and other lesions of the mouth and tongue.
5. Douche.
For any vaginal discomfort or cleansing, a solution of Golden Seal and urine will give comfort and healing.
6. Eye and ear drops.
Any pain, burning and tiredness in the eyes may get relief with a few drops of urine placed into the eyes. The ears also benefit greatly if receiving a few urine drops for ear pain and discomfort.
7. Urine sniffing.
This is the most effective way of treatment for any sinus congestion and upper respiratory problems.

External Application:
1. Rubbings.
Urine is massaged into the body. Rubbings are usually done for any kind of skin lesions from a simple rash to eczema and cancer. The rubbings may last from 20 minutes to one hour in duration.
2. Foot Baths.
Very effective for athlete's foot or any skin problem on the feet.

It was not painful and I have not sought for medical help. However, after using gargling urine each morning for the past 58 days, this sore has gone. Just Amazing.

Urine Therapy - Unconventional Practice

Today marked my 57th day on Urine Therapy.

____________________________________________________________

URINE: GOOD HEALTH is an hour-long documentary about urine therapy. This unconventional and controversial practice, which involves the use of one's own urine for health benefits, has been employed throughout history by people around the world and is one of the oldest modalities of health care.
The proponents of urine therapy generally advocate the use of one's own urine in many forms and for many purposes. Whether taken orally, dropped in the eyes or ears, used topically or injected, it is claimed that urine is the cure for many maladies including AIDS, cancer, asthma, arthritis and glaucoma, among others. Urine therapy is also used for skin care, health maintenance and as a dietary supplement.
While mainstream medicine has rejected the claims of the urine drinkers, pharmaceutical companies and scientists are profiting from the use of urine and its individual components in their research and development. The proteins, enzymes and other materials occurring naturally in urine are being used in various ways, including the production of life saving drugs and dietary supplements as well as for non-invasive tests for the detection of diseases.
This documentary objectively explores the claims of the users and proponents of urine therapy and the views of some of the world's preeminent doctors and researchers regarding the medicinal uses of urine. URINE: GOOD HEALTH is the third in a series of documentaries by Eli Kabillio and Mad Dog Films, Inc. on controversial topics including A HOLE IN THE HEAD and A MATTER OF LIFE AND BREATH.

Urine therapy – a taste of things to come (From John Bettens)

Today marked my 56th day on Urine Therapy.

______________________



I wanted to make this post one that would give some insight into how I’ve gone about managing cancer. This is why I have chosen the topic of urine therapy. Whenever I have spoken at the Gawler Foundation’s 12 week program held in Sydney for people affected by cancer (www.wellforlife.net.au) the mention of urine therapy attracts disproportional attention to anything else I might say. Why is this so? It’s probably because the very thought of drinking one’s own urine evokes in people a feeling of repulsion while at the same time triggering a deep sense of curiosity and wonder as to why anyone would do it.
As you will probably have already read on the website, I have chosen to not have surgery, radio therapy or chemotherapy for either of my cancers. My view is that we should not be afraid to experiment. After all, it’s our body and our life which is at stake. Sometimes you just have to trust your own instincts when it comes to trying something new, even if that something seems so far from left field.
That was the situation with which I was presented when urine therapy was recommended by one of my two GP’s, for the treatment of my follicular lymphoma. My GP said she was aware of anecdotal evidence to suggest that this type of therapy worked in the case of follicular lymphoma but not for any other type of cancer, and that she had no explanation as to why it worked. She did add that it may have something to do with improving the immune system’s ability to recognize the cancer and therefor be able to do the job it was intended to do. The issue between the immune system and cancer cells is that the immune system fails to recognise a cancer because the cancer cells have learned to disguise themselves as healthy cells. Therefor, unlike other foreign invaders like viruses and bacteria which trigger an immune response, this does not happen with cancer cells. So the explanation may be that the urine eliminates the ability of the lymphoma cancer cells to disguise themselves making them vulnerable to an immume response.
I was diagnosed in March 2007 with follicular lymphoma. In February 2008 I commenced to drink 250mls of my urine daily. Between these two dates CT scans showed that the cancers were continuing to grow, however, after February, scans showed the cancer masses reducing in size. The cancer was located in my neck, chest and stomach. I had scans in February, May, August and December 2008. In February the cancer mass in my stomach, which was the largest in any part of my lymphatic system, was about 3cm in diameter. In May that same mass measured about 2cm diameter, and by August it was down to about 1cm diameter. In December it was not reported upon, presumably because its size was insignificant. By August, the mass in my chest, which had been the most resistant to change, had also reduced in size. Those in my neck, which were small to begin with, had either reduced in size or completely disappeared. The most recent scan in February 2010 reported on only one mass, which was in the stomach and it measured just 6mm x 4mm. No other significant cancer mass was seen elsewhere.
I should note that during this period in 2008 the only alteration I made to my health and healing regime was to include urine therapy. I think these facts demonstrate a strong correlation between the use of this therapy and the reduction in size of the cancerous lymph nodes and that this correlation suggests the therapy worked. For me it doesn’t matter whether the urine therapy was the catalyst for these results, what matters is that I have the peace of mind that this cancer is presently not a threat to my life. I continue to maintain urine therapy as a part of my daily routine.

Urine Therapy - Benefits of Urine

Today marked my 55th day on Urine Therapy.

_______________________


Most people are horrified when they first hear about the medical uses of urine. But then, do you know that you have already reused and re-ingested your urine, that too large amount of it for a long period of time, and it's one of the reasons you're alive today? Yes! Urine is the main component of the amniotic fluid that bathes the human foetus, according to latest medical researchers.
Drinking of one's own urine is mentioned in Ayurvedic treatises like Yogaratnaakaram, Sushruta Samhita, Bhaava Prakaasa and Ashtaanga Sangraha. Detailed information on auto uropathy can be obtained from the Dhaamara Tantra under the heading of Shivaambu kalpa vidhi. This contains 107 verses extolling the virtues of urine as a medicament, complete with extremely detailed instructions on everyday use.
In our country, Ravjibhai Patel and Dr. Paragji Desai contributed a lot in popularising this invaluable therapy. It is well known that Morarji Desai, the former Prime Minister of India, was a strong proponent of this therapy. Morarji Desai was even interviewed in 1978 on American television during the CBS news programme, during which he discussed the benefits of urine therapy.
Dr John Armstrong, for the first time, revolutionised the concept of natural urine therapy and re-established its scientific validity in his book, The Water of Life. During recent times, the medical application of urine and its constituents have been tested, discussed, researched and utilised throughout the world. Hundreds of research evidences and thousands of case studies are documented. Medical scientists sat in their laboratories and watched as urine completely devastated rabies and polioviruses, tuberculosis, typhoid, gonorrhoea, dysentery, bacteria and cancer cells.
Urine has also been found to be useful in treating diseases like cancer, gout, osteoporosis, impotence, obesity, asthma, bums, tuberculosis, blisters, cuts, wounds, cataract, coughs and colds, constipation, diabetes, eczema, gangrene, heart disease, hyperacidity, diseases of the stomach and intestines, pulmonary tuberculosis, psoriasis, piles and ringworm, uterus inflammation and stiffness of the vertebral column.
Our disgust for urine is the result of prejudice conditioned by cultural influences. Otherwise its taste is not very unpalatable.
An individual's own urine contains elements like antibodies that are specific to one's body alone and are medically tailor-made to particular health disorder. That is why you should use your own urine for therapy.
Some Fallacies And Facts about Urine:
Fallacy: Urine is a biological waste, which contains a host of micro-organisms.
Fact: Urine is only a derivative of the blood. It is a fluid, which has tremendous variations of composition. These excess elements from the circulating blood are filtered and collected within the kidney in the form of a purified, sterile, watery solution called urine. This is almost free from all kinds of micro ¬ organisms like bacteria.
Fallacy: The body has excreted it because it does not need it anymore.
Fact: The function of the kidneys is not excretion, but regulation. The kidneys do not filter out important elements in the blood not because those elements are toxic or dangerous for the body, but simply because the body is not in need of that particular concentration of the element at the time it was excreted . Researchers have observed that urine, because it is actually extracted from our blood, contains small amounts of almost all the life-sustaining elements, enzymes, proteins, hormones, antibodies and immunising agents that our blood contains.
Fallacy: Synthetic derivatives of urine are better option.
Fact: Urine in its natural form is beneficial because it does not produce side-effects. And extract of urine called urokinase which is used to dissolve blood clots can cause serious abnormal bleeding as a side-effect. In contrast, not even a single case with such serious side-effects was reported when natural urine (though it contains measurable amounts of urokinase) was used. Moreover, urine contains thousands of therapeutic agents, such as important natural antibodies, enzymes and regulating hormones that extracts like urea, uric acid or urokinase do not contain.

Urine Makes The Skin Glowing

Today marked my 51th day on Urine Therapy.


__________________________________________
Urine that contains many antiseptic when it is used for external treatment can make the skin glowing. It is also useful for the treatment of diseases such as impotence, cancer, osteoporosis, constipation, diabetes and other diseases. Actually, urine is the best medicine that produced by the body. Infant in the mother’s womb was also issued urine as humans do. The infant then swallowed his own urine through the amniotic channels.
Drink urine in the morning can serve as a useful tonic for treating ailments. Rinsing with urine can control resistance of the teeth. Urine can also be used for the treatment of eyes and ears such as glaucoma and ear infections. Fresh urine can be used for shaving to get soft skin. Urine can also be used to treat skin and nail problems. Massage the head and the hair with urine it can stimulate the hair growth.
Many people think that urine contains bacteria. But urine is completely sterile in the first 15 minutes after it comes out from the body. Even it has been proven to be useful for usage on the outside of the body. But it is only for the people who have healthy gall, kidneys and genitals that can use their urine for this therapy. Yet the medical community assess that urine therapy has not been scientifically proven even recognized that healthy urine contains substances such as minerals.

Urine Therapy And Acne

Today marked my 50th day on Urine Therapy. Over the 50 days of urine therapy, I have discovered that gargling a cup of urine every morning will help to cure your sore throat and other gum diseases.

__________________________


You might cringe at the thought of this home remedy treatment for acne but the truth is it works and it isn't going to cost you anything. When I say it works, I just want to clarify that it helps cure acne, it will help you obtain a clearer skin and clear up those spots. This treatment will do little if anything in helping you to rid acne scars that is a different matter.
Ones own urine has been used for medicinal purposes for years. Different cultures all over the world have discovered a wide variety of ailments that have been helped or even cured by using your own urine.
The correct term for treating a medical condition with your own urine is urotherapy or uropathy. When using urine to treat acne the idea is simply to dab and massage it into your skin as you would a facial toner. I must stress we are talking your own urine although the thought of using someone elses would probably give me nightmares.
I did read somewhere that babies urine is even stronger and works quicker than using your own and it suggested if you have a baby in the house just dab a swab in a diaper. I am sorry but that is something even I cannot get my head around.
How to Treat Acne: Urine Therapy
If you have got this far you are either very curious or you haven't ruled out the possibility of treating your acne with urine. The next section details the few simple steps for this rather unusual acne treatment.
• We have already established that it must be your own urine, it must also be the first one of the day as soon as you awake.
• When you first start to go to the toilet leave the first couple of seconds to flow, stop midstream and catch some in a small container.
• Using a cotton wool swab, apply the urine to your acne scars.
• Leave in face for between 5 to 10 minutes before rinsing off.
• It will not harm you leaving it on longer and believe it or not, as the urine starts to dry out there won't be any smell.
• As long as you have saved some in the container you can apply this twice a day.
• Just before retiring to bed you can apply the same urine for overnight use too.
• If you keep the urine in a container for more than 24 hours it will turn into a concentrate which you can apply to darker spots.
Some people experience a very slight tingling using this method but keep the treatment up and you should notice an improvement in just a few days time. It is totally free and as long as you can get your head around the fact you are applying pee to your face what have you got to lose.

Urine Therapy - Alternative Healthcare Treatment

Today marked my 48th day on Urine Therapy.

____________________________________

Urine therapy falls under the category of alternative healthcare treatments. It is the practice of drinking one's own urine in order to enjoy certain health benefits, as well as using one's own urine to massage into the skin to heal wounds or other skin disturbances.
Urine therapy has been practiced for thousands of years, as far back as ancient Rome where some of the citizens used their own urine to help whiten their teeth. Urine therapy has also been an accepted practice in Egypt, China and India.
Those who practice urine therapy claims it can overcome a host of ailments, including skin eruptions such as acne, scratchy throat ailments and even eye inflammations. Over the years, urine therapy has been controversial as to its curative powers, with no conclusive scientific evidence that using one's own urine internally or externally has healing benefits for the body.
Urine comes from an excess of food molecules after dining that have traveled through the body's intestinal tract, the liver and ultimately the kidneys. The kidneys are the final filtering place for the blood containing these food molecules mixed with water that ultimately are excreted as urine. The chemical composition of human urine includes calcium, magnesium, folic acid, iron, various proteins and ascorbic acid, although 95% of urine is water. The urea contained in urine is an antibacterial and antifungal agent which can help counteract inflammation, which is why urine therapy is so popular, used both internally and externally.

Urine: Anatomic Overview

Today marked my 45th day on Urine Therapy.

_________________________________

Urine is the slightly acidic liquid substance taking wastes from the kidneys outside human body. Its color ranges from clear to yellow and, in certain cases, to darker tones, depending on the individuals health condition. Urine also features specific odour resembling ammonia and varying in intensity from individual to individual. The odour may be caused by nitrogenous wastes, foods, infections etc. Urine is stored in the bladder, which can hold up to 20 ounces of liquid and discharges, in common individuals, up to 10 ounces. Basically, urine consists in the elements human body is unable to absorb at a particular moment.
Up to 95% of the fluid is water.
How is it done?
The way urine therapy is administered differs from people to people. No training or certification is required in order to be able to use this therapy, at least this is what advocates claim. There are different ways of implementing this therapy, some of them are:
• There are adepts who believe that only the midstream of morning urine may be used in therapy.
• They either drink it simple and hot, as it comes, or combine it with juice and fruit to cut off smell and taste.
• There are also people who claim that effective urine therapy consists in applying few drops (usually 3 drops) sublingually with certain frequency.
• Japanese women use urine for bathing to provide skin with proper nutrients. The practice is still very popular in our days.
• Yet, by far most courageous form of urine therapy consists in urine injections in the rectum for cleansing and bowel movement.


What is Urine Therapy good for?
You may ask yourself what is urine therapy good for. The answer, as adepts claim it, is everything. Urine therapy is indicated in:
• treatment of common flues and toothaches
• dehydrated skin
• epidermal conditions such as psoriasis
• snake bites
• allergies
Therefore, its area of action is largely extended. Furthermore, urine is said to treat effectively:
• asthma
• pneumonia
• severe heart condition
• burns
• even cancer
• eczema
• eye irritation
• dysentery
• chemical intoxication
• deficient intestinal traffic
• sexually transmitted diseases including AIDS
• chicken and small pox
• sleep disorders
• hepatitis
• low or lack of fertility
• baldness
• jaundice
Temporary disorders:
• hangover
• morning sickness
• urticaria
as well as serious medical problems such as:
• Parkinson's disease
• diabetes
• tetanus
• stroke
• foot fungus
• obesity
• rheumatism
or even disgraceful birthmarks are included by urine therapy devotees in its action spectrum.
Urine is, thus, considered the true elixir of life and Kundalini releaser, the activator of the inner third eye and the way to divine wisdom.

Urine Therapy - Skin Problem

Today marked my 44th day on Urine Therapy. Over these 44 days of application, my skin condition has improved. Very soft and smooth.

___________________________________

There are some of us that have to deal with skin problems on a regular basis which are generally overcome over the course of time. Some of us, however, have skin problems and eczema to the point where we would do almost anything in order to overcome it. We may have tried a number of different natural cures without results but the itching, flaking and related problems that we are dealing with are maddening to say the least. If you would like to know a natural killer that is certainly out of the ordinary but has been known to work on the most severe cases, I'm about to reveal it to you.

Before I tell you what it is, I need you to understand that not all natural cures are going to be easy to do. As a matter of fact, some of them may be downright unsavory, as is the case with the type of natural therapy that I am about to discuss. What I am talking about is urine therapy, something that certainly does not have the favor inside of the natural healing community for the large part. For those who have been touched in a positive way by this out of the ordinary healing practice, they would welcome it again with open arms.

Many of us consider the urine to be toxic, removing many of the poisons that are inside of the body. In reality, urine is not toxic and as a matter of fact, it is quite good for you. Much of the toxicity that is within the body are released through various organs, such as the liver and even by breathing. It is also released to a large extent through the skin and that is one of the reasons why many of us experience our eczema in the first place.

Although a very small percentage of you are going to look further into the possibility of using urine therapy to cure a eczema, those of you who do try it will notice results rather quickly. If you can get beyond the fact that you are actually drinking your own bodily fluids, it is actually something that can heal rather well. It is nothing that is new and has been practiced for thousands of years in various cultures. By practicing it yourself, you may just unlock a natural way to overcome a variety of problems.

Urine Therapy

Today marked my 43th day on Urine Therapy.

______________________________________________

1. Urine Therapy – Oral
This is a popular Asian practice for good health, and a cure-all especially for colds, flu’s and gout. It is believed that one should drink the first stream of the day, nice hot and steaming to boost one’s immunity.
If you do want to try it, you can choose to either drink it straight or mix in with your morning fruit juice, or a glass of water. It’s also good for the teeth as it has bleaching properties.
2. Enhancing Beauty
To improve skin quality, it is suggested that a wash in the fluid at least once a week maintains youth, keeps the skin smooth, and protects against most forms of dry skin. This bizarre activity is practiced even today having endured for thousands of years. There are of course the obvious advantages of cost and availability.
3. A Cure for Hangover
Urine is said to be the best cure for a morning hangover. Drinking the first stream of urine after an overindulgent night out is said to wake up the energy inside you.
If you have problems with the neighbors’ cats soiling your garden, the best cure is for the man (testosterone) of the house to catch his first pee in container and empty it out on the targeted area.
Some companies sell pellets made from the urine of carnivorous animals such as mountain lions and bobcats. These pellets are then scattered around the garden so as to deter animals like squirrels and domestic cats from marking territory (which they feel have already been marked by bigger animals) in your garden.
In addition, one part urine to 10 parts water is a great and free way of fertilizing the garden.
5. Ammunitions

Many years ago, stale urine was used to make amunitions. The urine was left for more than a year to ferment. The salts formed from this fermentation were then washed and mixed with wood ash, dried out, then added to sulphur and charcoal to make black powder.
6. As Clothes Dye
In the past urine has been used as a mordant (this is a substance which helps fabric dye to set, like tannic acid or iodine) to help in the process of dyeing wool.
7. Jelly Fish Stings
Actually, urine should not be used as a cure for jelly fish stings since it releases the poisons in the sting rather than retard them.
8. Electricity
Physicists in Singapore have published an article in the Journal of Micro-mechanics and Micro-engineering about their success in creating the first paper battery to generate electricity from urine.
This paper battery will use the substance it is testing (urine) as the very source of energy used to do the test.
They will use this device to test for diseases like diabetes. It will be used by patients to monitor their health from their own sitting rooms (or bathrooms), and would be widely used as it will be cheap and accessible.

John W. Armstrong

Today marked my 42nd day on Urine Therapy.

_________________________________________

In 1945, John W. Armstrong published a book called, The Water of Life, A Treatise on Urine Therapy. Armstrong's book described the "difficult-to-accept" idea that drinking one's own urine will promote healing, and will restore health to individuals afflicted with grave illnesses.
In the late 1980s, Martha Christy published a book on Urine Therapy, titled Your Own Perfect Medicine. Christy's approach is technical in presentation and includes injections of prepared urine-tissue, and taking urine drops under the tongue.

Armstrong's approach is much simpler - to resolve life-threatening disease conditions, drink every drop of your own urine and neither eat nor drink anything else until you are completely well!!

In his book, Armstrong provides the history of patients with a variety of serious conditions (cancers, massive infections, heart conditions, etc.) who were frequently near death; and in some cases, the patient was so gravely ill, that they couldn't produce any of their own urine. In those cases, Armstrong would 'jump start' the patient with his own urine. Afterwards, the patient was able to produce a small amount of his own. With each subsequent dose of urine, the patient would gain both strength and relief from pain.

For the most serious cases, patients drank nothing but their own urine for periods of 90, 120, 150 days! Some, even longer. Armstrong points out that rubbing the body with old urine (for a substantial period of time, e.g. 2 hours) is a necessary adjunct, in very serious cases, to ingestion. In less severe cases, rubbing with old urine will clear up most skin conditions and produce a smooth, blemish-free skin if applied regularly (ladies, take note).

How Urine Therapy works
1. Replenishment of vital tissues lost to the ill person through the urine.

2. Re-ingestion, refinement, and re-filtering of antibodies and other immune enhancing substances, which allows the body to exclusively concentrate on destroying, unclogging, and removing the offending organisms and diseased tissue, without the burdens of routine work such as digestion and normal detoxification. Normally, urine and stool elimination is considered as waste; however, urine, unlike faeces, is totally sterile. Nevertheless, urine is the filtrate of the individual's own blood. Proponents of Urine Therapy, in normal health, drink urine daily in order to promote their health and to maintain physical beauty. In the event of survival difficulties, this simple technique can be a life-saver.

How to Do It
There are many ways to apply Urine Therapy effectively - read through the following guidelines and methods, and then try the one that appeals to you.
General Guidelines

• Regular users say that it assists in the maintenance of energy levels, reduction of aging, and prevention of illness.

• For internal use, midstream urine should be collected in a clean cup. As urine breaks down rapidly outside the body, it should be used as soon as it is collected.

• To start with, only a few drops are to be administered each day in the early morning.

• Urine can be taken with a dropper, and one or two drops should be placed under the tongue. The dosage can be increased to five to ten drops twice a day over a period of three to five days.
• Diluting or boiling the urine decreases the efficacy; consequently, this should be avoided.

• Some individuals may experience mild headache, nausea, diarrhoea, tiredness or skin rashes, which are the body's natural responses against stored toxins. These symptoms normally disappear within 24 to 36 hours.

• In most cases, frequent small doses of one to three ounces for two to three weeks will suffice.

• Applying urine to the skin is an excellent treatment for many types of skin disorders such as skin rashes, eczema, psoriasis, acne, insect bites, etc. The urea in urine is excellent for cosmetic use and moisturising the skin. Fresh or old urine can be used as external application. In fact, old urine with its high ammonia content is more beneficial in many stubborn skin-diseases.

• A small cotton ball or pad is to be soaked in urine and rubbed over the affected area. This is to be discarded and another one is taken to repeat the process for five to ten minutes.

• Urine therapy should not be taken during pregnancy and by people suffering from kidney disorders without a qualified practitioner's supervision.

Two Specific Methods

1) Homeopathic type Drops
First, collect midstream urine in a clean cup or container. This should be a clean catch, meaning the genital area (important for women in particular) has been cleaned beforehand. To 5ml of distilled water in a sterile bottle, add one drop of fresh urine. Cap and shake 50 times. Take one drop of this mix and add to another 5ml ounce of distilled water and shake 50 times. Take one drop of this mix and add to 5ml. of 80 to 90 proof vodka which acts as a preservative.
Place three drops under the tongue hourly until there is obvious improvement or temporary exacerbation of symptoms. As improvement progresses, lengthen the interval between treatments. After 3 days, suspend treatment to avoid pushing the immune system. Treatment is resumed if progress remains static or relapse occurs.

2) Fresh undiluted Urine
Use fresh urine drops direct - sub-lingual drops work well.
(Should always use fresh urine immediately upon collection. You should not boil or dilute the urine in any way. You must use it in its natural form)
Start by taking 1-5 drops of morning urine on the first day.
On the second day, take 5-10 drops in the morning.
On the third day, take 5-10 drops in the morning, and the same amount in the evening before you go to bed.
Once you feel accustomed to the therapy, gradually increase the amount as needed for obtaining results for your condition. As you use the therapy, you will learn to adjust the amount you need by observing your reactions to the therapy. It may be that you'll work up to actually drinking 30ml or 60ml at a time.

Other Methods
