Often most nutritive substances are obtained by body in sufficient quantities from the food. By drinking or massaging the urine on skin, a number of vitamins, amino acids, salts, hormones, etc. readily available in urine are possibly re-absorbed and reused as nutrients.
This is important especially during illness, when diseased
body tissue enters the blood and must therefore be excreted. The filtering
process in the kidneys should break down this tissue to its original materials,
after which it can be re-used by the body to build up new tissue.
composition of urine changes during illness, because certain essential
substances do not reach their intended destination and are subsequently filtered
out by the kidneys. A good example of this is liver blockage, which can result
in hepatitis (inflammation of the liver). If a blockage develops in the liver,
bile produced by the liver cannot reach the intestinal canal, instead seeps into
the blood and subsequently ends up in the urine, resulting in weakness and
nausea. The shortage of bile in the digestive tract restricts the digestion of
fats and proteins. Therefore rest and a diet low in fats and proteins is usually
However, the substance, which should digest these proteins
and fats, can be found in the urine in precisely the correct amount. According
to this theory, the application of urine therapy allows bile and other liver
enzymes to be re-used instead of wasted.
This is just one example of an
illness in which important substances can be re-used via urine. Research could
also be conducted for other illnesses concerning the way in which important
bodily substances can be saved and re-used.
