Day 166 on Urine Therapy
Urine therapy is one of the more controversial natural therapies out there, and obviously so, but rather than take anyone’s word for it, prove it for yourself, and see if it works. While considered gross by many, urine therapy has been practiced for thousands of years by its adherents, who constantly extol its virtues. It is an acquired taste, but the good news is that once you do get used to the taste of your own urine, you’ll find its benefits far outweigh the gross factor.
Urine therapy is extolled in ancient Hindu texts as Sivambu or the river of Shiva, and has passing mention in other ancient texts as well. The Bible verse, “Drink waters out of thine own cistern, and running waters out of thine own well,” has been often quoted as a reference to urine therapy.
It cannot be denied that urine is an acquired taste. The taste itself is variable, but can range from almost tasteless to extremely salty. If you are really into urine therapy, you would have to watch your diet carefully, because your urine would ultimately reflect what you ate.
The typical practice in urine therapy is to drink the first piss of the morning. Drink only the midstream, which means to let the first few seconds of urine pass and then only collecting the stream after that. Another essential practice is to rub your urine on your skin and/or scalp. For this purpose, urine that has been stored for several days is much better as it is claimed to be softer on the skin.
The benefits of urine therapy are claimed to be numerous, but among them, urine therapy has been said to cure cancer, diabetes, various skin diseases, anemia, digestive problems, colds, and many degenerative diseases. Urine applied topically to the skin is said to be a great rejuvenator for the skin, diminishing wrinkles, increasing moisture to the skin, and getting rid of acne. It is likely to be a great anti aging agent, as urine contains many hormones like DHEA and melatonin, and perhaps HGH too.
One of the better known urine therapy practitioners was Indian Prime Minister Morarji Desai, who lived to the ripe old age of 99. He exhorted Indians to take up this practice, saying that it was an economical way to preserve health without all the expenditure of modern medicine. Many early Hollywood actresses were also reputed to be practitioners, although few would openly admit it.
The only way to know whether urine therapy works or not, is to try it out yourself. And to give it some time to gauge the effects. A good time frame is 3-6 months. Generally speaking, one should not expect to experience miracle cures, but having an open mind can sometimes be a great asset!
