I remember vividly I was browsing the internet two years ago and came across this topic “urine therapy”.
Gross! How can someone do that? Urine on your face, that’s absurd right?
Well I was in for a ride, because there are numerous benefits to using urine (whether internally or externally). I shared the idea with a close friend to hear her opinion on it. It turned out her grandmother – an old country woman (who looked decades younger than her ripe old age at that time) had been applying facial urine therapy for decades and had told her daughters and granddaughters to do the same. That anecdote won me over… After all I had nothing to lose. Still hesitant, I decided to do some more research online and discovered that a number of leading models (of both genders) use urine therapy to combat everything ranging from acne to aging. So, I took a leap of faith and started urine therapy. Over two years, totally comfortable with the application daily I am convinced that this works. Although there are people who drink their urine (over 3 million Chinese) and high percentages in some European countries that are into natural health, it takes a level of acceptance and openness to drink one’s urine- which I am not at that stage-yet (and may never get there – I admit).
After a year of using urine therapy my skin is impeccable, it glows and feels as soft and new. The first time I applied it to my face there was a tingling feeling on my skin, obviously reacting to the foreign substance applied. After weeks of application my skin had no reaction when the urine was applied. To my surprise and you maybe shocked, there is no fowl smell on the skin after the urine is applied and it disappears and is visually undetectable. That observation made me continue as the odor could have deterred my interest in seeing the end result.
So what do I do? I wake up in the mornings and while peeing I use a roll of tissue to catch the urine just enough to wet it. By the way, they recommend using your first pee in the morning because it is more concentrated and therefore more effective. Afterward I face the mirror and wipe the wet tissue on my face (forehead, chin, around the eyes, jaws, avoiding the lips and eyes). I allow the skin to process the urine therapy for 15 -30 minutes, then wash my face. When I started I would only give it about ten minutes but after seeing the results I began extending the period, even doing it twice daily. One of my friends (the same one with the super young grandmother) leaves hers on for hours at a time, unless she has to go to work or be around other people. It all depends on the user. Logically, the longer you leave it on, the more the acid contained in the urea can remove dead layers of skin. The model testimonials I saw (you can YouTube the topic) mentioned a half hour, so I decided to stick to that.
Anyway, as I was saying, in a week I saw radical changes to the appearance of my skin which made me very happy. An unbeliever was now persuaded. I did not have severe acne but I had skin issues. Today, I am content, truly happy I started urine therapy. Every once in a while, depending on work stress and diet, I’ll have a little skin crisis for a day, but over all I can safely say the improvement is noticeable and consistent. Many of my friends have skin issues -acne, blemishes, blackheads, whiteheads etc and they have tried everything on the market but nothing works-even bleaching. I would like to tell them all to try urine therapy. Don’t be embarrassed! I had the same gut reaction too because we are all products of our upbringing and, unless you’re from some distant indigenous tribe on some uncharted island, or you’re from my friend’s family (the one with the youthful grandma), you probably weren’t raised to even think of putting urine on your face. That’s for the toilet, right? Maybe not entirely… You might think its nasty but you could be flushing the secret to your own fountain of youth. Let’s not forget, if you’re someone who cares about being youthful and having healthy skin, think about how much money you’re spending on products with harsh chemicals and questionable results when a little dab of your own excess fluids and urea could do the same job or better for free!
I get compliments all the time about my skin and people always presume I’m much younger. I am 23 years old, not 18 or 20. I’ve even been mistaken for a very tall, mature 16 year old. Gosh… that was one of the nicest days of my life. I beamed for the whole week after hearing that one!
Anyway, don’t just take my word for it, or the word of some of these top models. Don’t take the word of my friend’s jetsetting granny either. Take a look at what gold old Wikipedia has to say about it
According to Wikipedia, in alternative medicine, “the term urine therapy (also urotherapy, urinotherapy or uropathy) refers to various applications of human urine for medicinal or cosmetic purposes, including drinking of one’s urine and massaging one’s skin with one’s own urine.”
Your urine is not as nasty as you think. It consists of 95% water, 2.5% of urea, and 2.5% is a mixture of minerals, salts, hormones and enzymes. The research for this blog proved to be true. Millions of people are experiencing the great benefits of urine therapy offers and it can be the same for you. Urine therapy is used to cure or relieve a variety of ailments, such as, arthritis, hepatitis, multiple sclerosis, eczema, psoriasis, diabetes, herpes and adrenal failure. This form of therapy is also used to assist with snakebites, jellyfish and bee stings. It is important to note that urine is the main ingredient in infertility drugs. (I did NOT know that, folks!)
Urine therapy can be used as eye drops for conjunctivitis and glaucoma and in the ear for ear infections.
I shared with a friend that I would be posting this testimonial about urine therapy. Yeah! I did. When I started two years ago it was ‘CIA’ top secret information. Now, I see the effects and the benefits I am pleased I started it. This blog post was not written to force you to begin your own urine therapy. This is not for the faint of heart, but for those who have nothing to lose and will try something new to see results. I haven’t used urine therapy constantly; there were times when I stopped and immediately all the zits and blackheads returned like an army. Today, it is part of my daily regime because I have seen a clear difference between what my skin is like with it and without it. I mentioned my secret to another friend who looks a lot younger than his age and he said that he’d been using it for years and, after seeing results, stopped buying the barrage of skincare products he used to use for his adult onset acne and seborrheic eczema.
