What is urine therapy?
Urine therapy is a popular, effective and free remedy for many ailments. There are many books available on urine therapy. For thousands of years it has been used to heal a wide variety of ailments. People drink it, and also apply it to the skin.
Urine is a non-toxic by-product of blood filtration (not waste filtration or excretion). The body secretes elements not needed at the time through urine. Urine contains thousands of compounds including large quantities of urea and uric acid, which are both anti-oxidants. Urine contains other compounds that are specific to the person from which it comes. It has antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, antineoplastic (anticancer), anticonvulsive, and antispasmodic properties. Urine contains alanine, arginine, ascorbic acid, allantoin, amino acids, bicarbonate, biotin, calcium, creatinine, cystine, DHEA, dopamine, epinephrine, folic acid, glucose, glutamic acid, glycine, inositol, iodine, iron, lysine, magnesium, manganese, melatonin, methionine, nitrogen, ornithane, pantothenic acid, phenylalaline, phosphorus, potassium, proteins, riboflavin, tryptophan, tyrosine, urea, vitamin b6, vitamin b12, zinc, and other compounds.
Urine is the body's own specific medicine. Many components in the blood that are found in urine have enormous medicinal value, and when reintroduced to the body they boost the immune system and stimulate healing in a way that nothing else does.
How to use urine therapy
Do NOT use your urine if you:
- Have a fungal or bacterial bladder infection (UTI, urinary tract infection, cystitis, thrush, candida, pyelonephritis).
- Are taking any pharmaceutical drugs.
- Are taking any other medicines.
- Are de-toxing. A detoxification or healing process may be flushing out toxins through your urine, and you would not want to drink them.
Fresh urine is virtually sterile. If your urine is not suitable for use, you can use the urine of a trusted healthy person (usually a family member). For most people, it is psychologically easier to use your own.
The most nourishing is that which is passed in the morning after rising. Start peeing, then stop. Then collect the urine (known as mid-stream urine or MSU). Stop collecting before your bladder is empty.
Drink the urine for a couple of weeks, then take a break for a week or two. It is best not to drink large quantities for extended periods. Rather, let smaller quantities of urine act as a stimulant and pick-up.
Urine is also an effective remedy for many skin complaints. In some cases it is sufficient just to rub the urine on the skin. In other cases it may be more effective to put the urine in a plastic bag, and hold the affected foot or hand in the bag for five or more minutes.
Urine therapy for allergies
Allergic reactions are caused by white blood cells (antigen receptors) that attack foreign substances in the body, even when they are not a threat. Various foods, dusts, pollen, danders etc are mistakenly attacked by the immune system. Dr. William Linscott showed that when these antigen receptors (white blood cells) are reintroduced into the body, the body develops antibodies to them, stopping the allergic response. The urine of allergic individuals contains their allergy-causing antigen receptors. By drinking their own urine, an allergic person produces antibodies which stop the allergic reactions.
