Since the acids, pepsins and enzymes in the digestive tract harm proteins, the hormones re-absorbed into the body from urine when consumed orally, are mainly the small ones, which are not proteins (protein-complexes). The sex hormones, adrenal gland hormones and thyroid hormones are almost certainly be re-absorbed, the effects of which, need to be more closely researched. The external application of urine to the skin allows hormones to be re-absorbed by the body without being destroyed. Massaging with urine is therefore an important complementary component of urine therapy as urine is directly absorbed into the tissue. Enemas are also a good way to prevent destruction of certain hormones by gastric juices which, is why this method often helps to cure allergic disorders better. The same applies for urine injections.
Re-absorption can be
vital in two ways. Firstly certain hormones have a very specific effect during a
healing process. For example cortico-steroids secreted by the adrenal cortex
inhibit infections and have a positive effect in the treatment of allergies such
as asthma and hay fever, skin disorders such as eczema and psoriasis and
inflammatory illnesses such as rheumatism. Auto Urine therapy has proved to be
an extremely effective aid in the treatment of all these illnesses, but it has
not yet been demonstrated that these hormones play a part in the
Secondly, re-absorption can be a means for the body to
generally conserve energy. Re-ingestion of hormones gives the body the chance to
re-use at least a number of these, so that it is not necessary to spend energy
on manufacturing new hormones.
Hormones are actually extremely powerful
molecules, the production of which requires a great deal of energy. Once
produced they are able to cause a complete alteration in the balance of bodily
processes, the personality, the emotions and the state of mind, even if only a
few molecules are released. So even the slightest re-absorption of hormones may
well have a powerful effect on our state of health and level of
A hormone melatonin released from pineal gland is found in
urine, which has a calming effect. The concentration of this hormone is found to
be more in first sample of urine in early morning. Melatonin also has a powerful
anti-cancer effect and anti aging property.
It is quite possible that the
sages of olden times were well aware of the hormonal effects of urine. They
state that if a person is unable to urinate, the urine from somebody of the same
sex is acceptable but not from somebody of the other sex.
cultural and social factors could have played a part in this rule, the fact is
that female urine contains considerably greater amounts of female hormones such
as estrogen. If ingested over a long period of time by a man, this could have a
feminizing effect. The opposite is true for a woman who ingests male
Some people recommend using the first urine after sexual
intercourse. During the process of sexual stimulation certain hormones are
released by the higher endocrine glands which have a regenerating and
rejuvenating effect on the body. This applies for men as well as women.
