The main theory is that it helps build immunity to disease, much like a vaccination. Martha Christy goes into all of this, and partly focuses on its use as a cosmetic, among other things. She recommends starting off with just a few drops, applied topically to the skin. Urine is helpful for acne, eczema, psoriasis, ringworm, sores, fungal infections, insect bites, snake bites, wounds, burns, abrasions, and even gangrene. Urine is also is a rich source of hormones, especially DHEA and melatonin, and other sex hormones including testosterone, androgen, and estrogen. It is also a rich source of enzymes, vitamins and minerals, and the amino acid creatine (used by body-builders, in the form of an extract from beef). Urine is also a source of allantoin (also found in comfrey and aloe vera, known as 'bone-knit,' in comfrey, and useful in aloe for preventing sunburn). Although I have not seen any information on hGH in urine, I suspect urine may also be a source of hGH (human growth hormone).
Urine contains vitamin
B-12, vitamin C, vitamin B-6, and other vitamins, and many minerals. There are
approximately 200 known biochemical elements in urine, but researchers believe
this is just the tip of the iceberg. Dr. Beatrice Bartnett writes that it is
now known that urine contains thousands of
bio-chemical compounds, but that only 200 or so have been studied as compounds
of interest to medical scientists. Urine contains elements found in the diet,
mixed with elements of the blood, and filtered by the liver and kidneys, before
flowing out of the body. Most of the toxic matter (if any) in the food we eat
is filtered out of the blood, through the liver and kidneys. Any toxic matter
that makes its way to the urine would be highly diluted. The end product,
urine, is actually less
toxic and more alive than much of the
food and drink that goes into the body. The body is even able to digest junk
foods and devitalized liquids, and produce from it a valuable,
medicinal drink. Urine is medicinal, cleansing, and
nourishing. Think how much more valuable and medicinal is the urine from
healthy, clean blood, which is fed by pure, natural, organic, raw foods.
Drinking your own urine makes you think seriously about what you eat.
