This strange behavior, called "urine therapy," or "auto-immune therapy," or "intrinsic medicine," or simply "UT," and also known in India as "amaroli" (the practice itself) and "Shivambu" (urine, the "water of Shiva"), has a well-documented, proven record of its power to heal an amazing variety of ills, with no negative or harmful effects. Coen van der Kroon's book "The Golden Fountain" lists around 175 different ailments or diseases of the human body, that have been cured by urine therapy, which includes drinking, massaging with-, and bathing in- urine. (Also used for nose drops, ear drops, eye drops, foot baths, eye cups, douche, enemas, etc).
Urine therapy has historical roots in ancient Egypt, ancient China, ancient
India, Europe in the middle-ages, and even in this century, there have been
hundreds of medical studies (including doctors who injected it directly into the
blood, apparently because the taste was considered too objectionable). In Dr. CP
Mithal's book Miracles of Urine Therapy, the author mentions certain doctors in
India who believe in urine therapy, but know that their patients won't drink it.
So when the patient comes in for a visit, the doctor asks for a urine sample.
The doctor takes it into the back room, where it is repackaged as medicine, with
taste and smell disguised. Dr. Mithal writes that we should forgive these
deceptive doctors, because it's the only way they can get the patients to drink
their urine. It is a divine nectar, with supernatural qualities.
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 toxins in the food we eat (if any) is
filtered out of the blood, through the liver and kidneys, while any toxic matter
that makes its way into 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
