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.
