Last year during one of my trips to the Philippines a lady staying at the hotel got bitten by a jelly fish. Her leg swelled up quite rapidly and she cried due to the pain. As she seemed powerless, I approached her and suggested that she pee'ed on it. She did not seem too enthusiastic about it and claimed that she had just been to the toilet and did not feel like peeing any more. I suggested her partner pee'ed on it. Both started looking at me in a funny way and declined. She put some chemical on the bite, the leg swelled up and the pain remained so she had to take some pain killers.
The same thing has just happened to me this morning. I felt a sting half way through my swim and hurried back to my hotel room leaving my girlfriend in the water. I was in great pain. Puzzled by the statement I had made that I was about to pee on myself, she quickly joined me in our room to witness the event.
I stood in the shower and proceeded to pee on my ankle where the sting was. Relief did not come immediately but approximately 10 minutes later the pain had become bearable. Half an hour later I had forgotten about the incident and all pain was gone. The ankle never swelled up and no marks appeared.
A magic cure for all illnesses?
Urine has been used successfully for hair loss, cuts, bruises, digestive problems, eye or ear problems, headaches, migraine, sinus problems, allergies, dandruff, inhibition of blood clots (thus possibly avoiding strokes - safer than aspirin), thrush, it can be used as a skin cream and will effectively help fight wrinkles (the best facial cream or after shave I know), asthma, bronchitis, cough, rheumatism, arthritis, gout, warts, constipation, diarrhoea, diverticulitis, haemorrhoids, kidney stones, liver problems, sciatica, enlarged prostate, menstrual problems, varicose veins, burns, sun strokes, herpes, insect bites, jellyfish stings, scars, arteriosclerosis, diabetes, hypertension, mumps.. in fact I have successfully used urine with most health problems.
Urine has been used for centuries and often has been described as the World oldest Medicine. Many doctors have spoken favourably about it:
"Of interest to us is the use of urine in primitive medicine, for there is scarcely a disease that has not been treated with it, either by external application or internal administration" Dr H Smith, Journal of American Medical Association - July 1954
This remedy has been documented some 5,000 ago in the Indian "Darmar Tantra" where it was named "the water of Shiva". It was so successful at treating many conditions that it found its way in Ayurvedic medicine.
The former Prime minister of Indian Mr. Moraji Desai saw it as the perfect solution for his nation's health problems and publicly encouraged his people to use it. He himself used it and lived to the ripe old age of 99.
Urine was mentioned in England in 1693 in the book "Salmon's English Physician, or the Druggist's Shop Open'd" by Dr Salmon.
French, Americans, Chinese and most countries around the world have recognised its healing properties but still it is not widely recognised.
Let me answer the most commonly expressed objections to urino-therapy
Urine is full of Germs or Viruses
For approximately 15 minutes after urination your urine is completely sterile, non-toxic available any time day and night. No germs or viruses are present and it can be safely used to clean open wounds.
Urine does not smell when properly massaged into the body as it will be completely absorbed by the skin. It is true that if left outside, urine will smell after a while as the uric acid changes into ammonia.
Urine tastes bad
I would agree with you there if you are a meat or dairy food eater. The putrefying flesh of the animal food you have eaten will transport into the urine and it is to be expected that the taste of urine will reflect this. However, for those of you who do not eat animal food and are on a good diet, you will find that your urine taste a bit like water. Sometimes a little saltier depending on what you eat. Asparagus and garlic makes urine taste bad.
Urine is a waste product
Your urine is the result of the filtration of your blood by the kidneys. If you urine is of bad quality, this means that your blood is also of bad quality. In which case, you should seriously start thinking about changing your diet and lifestyle.
Urine is composed of 95 per cent water, two-and-a-half per cent urea and two-and-a-half per cent mixture of what is in excess in the blood. So, if you have too much vitamin C in the blood, the excess will go in the urine, too much enzyme, too much hormones, too much antibodies etc. all will go in the urine.
If your diet is good and your blood is of good quality, then your urine will contain whatever surplus your body does not need at present. Many nutrients such as:
hormones (aldosterone, androgens, androsterone, estradiol, estriol, estrone etc..) Many minerals such as magnesium, manganese, iron, calcium, zinc, Inositol, glycine, iodine, alanine, ascorbic acid, biotin, cystine, dopamine, folic acid, potassium can also be found, Vitamin B6, B12, Enzymes, co enzymes and many more essential ingredients are contained in your urine.
What is good in the toxins you pee. The Homeopatic effect of urine
In homeopathy, a patient is given a small dose of a poison that would cause similar symptoms to the ones he is suffering from. The body will recognise the poison and react against them and fights the disease.
We have the same process with urine. By re-ingesting a minute dose of your own poison, you are going to force the body to fight against something it does not like. So, as we can see, even if some toxins are present in your urine, it is also beneficial.
How to use Urine?
Drinking: The first urine in the morning is the most potent. Your body has had a chance to regenerate itself whilst you were asleep and excrete all the surplus it does not need for the time being. This first urine should be collected mid-stream (the first few seconds will clear the tubes and the last few seconds may bring up deposits from the bottom of the bladder). Drink it immediately whilst still sterile. Do not wait for it to cool down.
Massage: Fantastic for all skin conditions. Massage it into the skin until fully absorbed. It will not smell if done properly.
Old urine (more than 3 days old) will stop smelling when completely absorbed and is preferred to new urine for chronic organ conditions.
You may also massage urine into your scalp to clean your hair or it may even help control hair loss. Use new or old urine for this (old works better).
A full body massage with urine is also recommended for most health problems.
Compress: Make sure you do not use a synthetic material for the compress. Use wool if tolerated on the skin otherwise, cotton will do.
A compress over a problem area can be beneficial (i.e. kidneys, liver, chest, lungs etc..)
Old urine is best (between 3 and 6 days old) Leave the compress for at least one hour for maximum benefit.
Urine enemas will help cleanse your colon and regenerates the intestinal flora. It is also a good supply of vitamins, minerals, enzyme etc..
Use 5 litters of old urine to a full bath for a complete skin and body regeneration. Only for the advanced practitioners as the smell may be too much for you at the beginning.
The absolute best remedy for sore throats. I have never found any other product that worked better or quicker.
Use this for sinus problems or when you suspect the beginning of a cold or flu. I personally collect some urine in my hand and sniff it into my nose. It works a treat. If you have any form of sinus problems, try it.
I have personally been using urine therapy since 2002. I have never read of or experience any adverse reaction to it. But my recommendation of course has to be that you should consult an experience practitioner if you are to use this therapy. This is called covering your ...
Enjoy, it is a fantastic therapy. Free of charge and more efficient than a lot of harmful chemicals used today.
