Urine Therapy A Natural Alternative
Relieved of Peridontal disease
Rick Kincade - A friend cured her periodontal disease with urine and when she told me I
found your website and tried it for my toothache which I was taking vicodin
for and expecting to get pulled. After four uses of urine I arrived at the dentist
and he couldn't get my tooth to hurt. Not with ice, cold air, cold water, or
picking. I woke up in the middle of the night last night with pink eye caking
my eyelids closed. I washed them with urine and the redness and itchiness vanished
within half an hour. Also using it on a wart grown under a fingernail and it
seems to be helping my hip heal. I am sold. Question: if all the toxins are
removed by the liver why are drugs still in the urine for sports testing and
legal issues? Is it just such a small amount it doesn't matter? Are there any
different guidelines for kids? Thanks for your gift. ps my just turned 9 yr
old son just popped in before taking a bath with urine in a glass and we mixed
5 drops with orange juice for him, as he was wanting to try it for his hyperactivity
which is causing problems at school. We had discussed it on the way home from
school today. added orange juice and drank it for the first time, with warnings
not to tell people at school. D Rick Surprised at how many people have heard
about it and one woman whose mom made all the kids drink their urine growing up.
Severe case of strep throat alleviated
Gracie Adams - When I was about 20yrs.old had severe case of strep throat, had taken doctor's
medcine for a week. My throat was closing up. My mom told me of this old remedy,
urine therapy from back in the day. So she told me to use my urine, gargle and
swollow some as well to get infection that was deep beyond my throat area .I
did what she said. I feel if I hadn't use this remedy I would be dead. My father
had taken me to the doctor so many times. My mom didn't know what at the time
that it was good for other things.Thank God, I got on line and looked this is
how I found your site. This will help so many people with the way things are
now, no jobs and no insurance, so we can take care of ourself this way.Thank
you so much and God bless you for all this good news. Peace, Gracie
Testimonial for Urine Therapy from New Zealand
Hi I wish I was brave enough to give you my name, but due to the thinking of
society around this subject (due to ignorance in most cases) I think it would
be best to keep my identity anonymous. But I do want to tell those who would
benefit from my story and hopefully give you hope that you to can have better
health without harmful drugs. I feel I cannot keep this to myself. My close
friends and family know and those I choose to tell, they are all fine with it
because I've been able to explain what I have learnt and how I helped my self.
What would my life have been like without Urine therapy doesn't bear thinking about...
So here goes! It seems a life time ago now but when I count back it only been
8 months..... I woke one morning to find one of my fingers was sore, just a
joint on my right hand, this wasn't odd as if I eat to much wheat I get stiff
joints, so its an indication that i needed to cut back on wheat, which i did
...but this sore joint didn't go away. SA month later a finger on my other hand
flared up to and I became really scared, this wasn't just sore but it was like
a pain I had never felt before, aching, swollen, which started to make the simplest
of tasks really hard to do and caused more pain. I knew something wasn't right
as I was just so tired I could hardly function. I'm normally active and have
a sport which keeps me really fit, but I couldn't even do that, I just wanted
to sleep and my appetite was non existent and I was worried about what I could
eat as certain foods made it worse ... for years now I struggled with my diet,
keeping out wheat and sugars really helped, long ago I had identified I had
candida and would use diet to control this. (I was never overweight but I just
wasn't able to eat certain foods)
Another thing is I have always been low in Iron right throughout my life
and recently I have realised the significance of this and also being low in
B12 I think have depleted my immune system so by now at 47 I have no reserves
to go on.....anyway.....after a month I was becoming steadily worse. I went
to my doctor, who suggested we do tests and that I should take some time off
work .....I took off over 3months in the end, it turns out I would need every
second of that time. I had every test the Dr could think of and the one I was
particularly scared of was Rheumatoid Arthritis. RA is in my family with a aunt
and a grandparent both dying young and in terrible pain. It turns out I have
the symptoms but no rheumatoid factor in my blood, so I'm not sure if it truly
is RA but my Dr says if I went to a rheumatoligist they would say I have RA
with no blood factor..or something like that. I would be advised to take a series
of immune suppressants and pain killers. I couldn't get my head around that
my immune system wasn't functioning and that their response was to switch it
off altogether....I thought why not build it back up....but they didn't think
this would help, my immune system was attacking my body for some unknown reason
so better switch it off or all hell would break loose!
My prognosis was not good it constituted of pain, and a greatly reduced lifespan.
If I was medicated I would get about 20ys - if I was lucky- before my organs
gave up then bring on the slow painful death. Yay I was just thrilled!!!!! Might
as well end it now and save the pain and despair..... To be honest I did think
I would rather take my own life than be reduced to the aforementioned prognosis.
But I am a ever hopeful person so I wasn't ready to take that drastic step -yet.
I guess I could always go back for the drugs, I thought I could have them there
as my last resort. But before that I had to try everything I could to help myself
and as it turns out I did.
I was becoming much worse I was trying everything and nothing had any lasting
effect,I began to really despair. By now I was loosing weight as I couldn't
decide what foods to eat and what would flare up my hands, I couldn't do any
housework the cleaning was especially painful and I had absolutely no energy,
I was fading away right before my families eyes. Daily tasks were finally given
away, even driving the car was painful as I couldn't grip the steering wheel
or let it slip through my hands as you do when turning the wheel, it was horribly
painful even 'air' felt painful on my hands, so I took to wearing gloves for
everything. I was wrapping sticking plasters around my sore joints as they felt
they needed support.
I didn't actually think at the time to take any pain relief, I guess looking
back I have always trusted my body to give me answers and masking symptoms was
never the norm for me. I was looking everywhere for answers and everyday would
'Google' my symptoms hoping to find some answers, and help, lots of info on
anti- inflammatory diets, so I began the alkaline /acid diet and found it good.
I followed it to the letter but found I had constant diarrhoea for 5 months!
I was lucky to have a good friend who was a naturapath who would help me hugely.
I had tried another natural therapist in town who just sold me expensive
concoctions which cost over $500.00 with no relief, I stopped going.......its
expensive to be sick and I wasn't working, but I was being paid as I had time
owning thank goodness......but not enough to cover these horrendous bills. I
would still go to my Dr just to check in really, as she couldn't do much either.
One day I was really down, I turned on the T.V. and saw a talking about radical
diets. I watched as he drank his own urine saying it was good for his ailments
and especially his arthritis. I couldn't believe my ears! I had never heard
of it, so off to 'Google' I went and found a multitude of information on Urine
Therapy. I read and read for days just absorbing what I was reading, I read
nothing to say it was harmful, rather the worse that could happen was it wouldn't
work for some people or conditions. But all the information said good for an
Auto Immune, which is what I had.
So as I was no better and the outcome for the rest of my life could be complete
incapacitation in a wheel chair taking drugs which would eventually kill me!
the idea of drinking my own urine actually seemed a no brainer. I decided what
did I have to loose, and maybe, just maybe, I might be someone who it just might
work for ... you never know till you try something, I have always had an open
mind to the alternative so I did.
I drank a small amount of urine that afternoon, I couldn't wait till the next
morning.....Im a bit of an all or nothing kind of person. I used a juice to
mask the taste, not so bad at all, I was drinking huge amounts of water so was
nearly clear anyway. I felt a small explosion in my stomach! it was like my
body was saying finally she has got it right! I dismissed this as just my mind
hoping for a good outcome! within 20mins the pain and swelling had lessened,
I couldn't believe it OMG.....
So the next morning about 5am, I took another dose (midstream) and had it
in a veg juice (I have always had my UT with a Veg Juice as I'm a bit of a sook
......it just tastes better this way.....and guess what... it still works....after
taking it I went back to bed a slept like the dead. I did this for several days,
and then my symptoms returned! I decided it must be the healing crisis and so
I upped the UT at the peak I was taking it 5x a day, as I was hardly eating
just a little avocado, I guess I did a Urine fast but just didn't know it at
the time. I got through it and my symptoms eased.
I would use Urine to soak my hands in with immediate relief and on my face
and neck as well ..its an amazing moisturiser. I've stopped using any creams
for my face now as I just don't need them. I found making a poultice out of
urine and paper, it would mould around my fingers which were really sore so
i could get some relief at night to sleep, after a week or so I no longer had
to do this.....also I slept really well as I found out urine is great for insomnia.....over
the next few months things really improved.
My appetite improved and I began slowly having some energy to do simple tasks.
I still needed to sleep every afternoon but its important not to push yourself
when returning to health. I found out so much about Urine that I never knew.....hows
its anti inflammatory, anti fungal, anti bacterial, (goodbye candidia) and a
blood product rather than a waste product.....also it has so many vitamins and
minerals and hormones unique to what your body needs....its just so amazing.
I've never felt so hopeful and positive since taking UT and one of the reasons
is 'Dopamine', its the happy hormone! I feel like I have no more fear of life
I just know that everything will be ok, I tell you if you ever want a remedy
that can not only heal your body, but also your body, mind and soul, UT is the
key to happiness and good health. Anyway back to the story, I began back at
work 2months after using UT which is amazing in itself, but I only went back
slowly, one day a week. I took with me my 'special cream'....a mix of aqueous
cream and urine in case I got a bit sore during the day, I just rubbed it in
and it works wonders. But now I also add a potent mix of aromatherapy essences
to kill any unwanted smells!
I have a 'work' cream and a ' home' cream which are different strengths for
obvious reasons.....my husband has never once complained about the smell or
what I do because he sees the huge difference in my health. I would hate to
smell like urine! So I'm very careful when I use it straight and when I use
my watered down creams. I put U on my skin everyday and I have the most lovely
soft and supple skin now. My eyes are clear and the whites really white! I no
longer have diareahea and my weight is returning to normal levels. I noticed
each month before my period some symptoms would return and with my lovely friend
we worked out it was a definite drop in progesterone. I now use a natural Progesterone
cream for three weeks leading up to my period and this has helped hugely.
So with a change in diet, reducing stress, Progestrone cream, ( all natural
mind you), and the ultimate healer Urine Therapy.....I can be free to take on
life again, abet a little wiser than before. I'm down to once a day for my UT
which seems to have stabilised my symptoms if they worsen again I will just
up my intake. (I've never had a cold or any flu now for the whole time I've
been taking UT either) I have learnt that ill health is multi layered we get
sick because things are not in balance. We are not just our Body, we are our
Body, Mind, Spirit and Emotions as well. I believe I got sick because I needed
to remember this, I had become complacent. And I needed to learn that I can
heal myself, no other expereince would have taught me this. This for me has
been empowering, this for me has changed my life. I aim everyday to be thankful
for my health, not to treat myself to harshly and love myself enough to treat
my body with respect it so deserves. And I have learnt that saying No and having
really solid boundaries isn't selfish its HEALTHY.
Today as I write this Im about 95% back to health, I still have stiff joints
some mornings but nothing like they were the swelling and pain has gone and
my energy is back. I'm doing mostly everything I did before, I'm just more aware
of my limits and I watch I'm not getting to stressed in my life. My iron levels
are still low and I have had to resort to injections for this, but hopefully
not for ever. I hope this is helpful to someone, never give up, never say never,and
try something different you never know what the results may be.....p.s Im 47yrs
old female, with grown up children, and looking forward to the rest of my life!

Hive free in Florida
Hive Free! Testimonial from Lou Majors, Florida August 7, 2005
I was running out of ideas after flushing my body with liquid echinacea....didn't
work. A bottle of the best colloidal silver (Mesosilver) in case it was a hidden
infection....didn't work. Flushing my liver out with liquid Milk Thistle seed
in case it was an insect bite.....didn't work. Running out of options and ideas,
I finally found your site looking for new and little known remedies, read about
uropathy, tried it and I am totally healed....no more symptoms whatsoever!
I have been doing the urine treatment coupled with a nutritional whole food
supplement. My morning regiment starts with a glass of warm water with lemon,
thirty minutes later one or two ounces urine, an hour later some fruit
(usually blueberries) and then three scoops of 'Greens+' or 'The Perfect Food.
I am hive free!!!!
Greyhounds and Chihuahuas benefit from Urotherapy in Colorado
are firm believers in urine therapy as we have seen amazing results in all areas...for
example, our greyhound dogs each had different kind of wounds suffered
from falling, barb wire at the dog park, etc. They have very thin skin and any
tumble can give them an abrasion that is significant. I believe that we were
given all different kinds of experiences with our animals and with people around
us to prove the great healing of urotherapy.
In each case of our greyhounds injuries, we used
urotherapy...the wounds varying in size from a quarter
to the size of an orange...healed very quickly with no scarring which is totally
amazing. We give daily doses of urine therapy to our chihuahua dogs along
with an all natural BARF diet (for chihuahuas ground chicken legs, thighs, liver)
along with raw carrots, raw snap green beans, yogurt plain and with fruit)...the
greyhounds eat whole leg quarters with plain yogurt with spirilina and Brewers
Yeast added. Our animals are so healthy from this practice and diet. The kittens
had upper respiratory infections which they gave to our chihuahuas...we gave
them all urine therapy and got them all over the respiratory infections.
The most severe problem was the little runt who began having seisures...we
worked with her constantly...first by putting her in a very safe enviroment
by herself where she did not feel threatened. I gave her urotherapy off and
on through the day and before night time. I would bundle her up in warm blankets
and put her in a small pet carrier which she felt safe and secure in. As she
was in that room in a very secure environment along with the urine therapy,
she began to have less and less seizures. I also am a natural healer...I used
hands on healing...I literally felt electrical energy come out of her and into
my hands...at first it was really powerful and then gradually it became less
and less powerful until she has stopped having seisures for three days now...her
vision was really affected at first to the point of almost being blind...I
put urine drops in her eyes often and now her eyes are clearing from a muddy,
unclear, blurry look to a clear blue...she is now seeing everything once
We have been amazed at her progress and how she is a normal little kitty
now. One of the other little boy kitties wasn't doing very well either as he
was small like her...I felt through my intuition to move him up with her and
it really helped both of them. The rest of the litter are bigger and doing well.
One of the bigger ones had a stuffed nose today and runny eyes. I again used
urine (either my husband's or mine or a combination of both) and within
minutes he was breathing easily and his eyes cleared up. We continue
to give them all urotherapy everyday and all are in vibrant health now.
I am very interested in the transfer factors
as we do not plan on having any of our animals
vaccinated anymore or treated with
worming medicine...we prefer to find a natural product that does it for them.
My husband has done extensive research into urine therapy and found that
it is effective in regards to rabies.
Nepolese man gives up on medical doctors and turns to Urotherapy
We are currently working with a Nepolese man who was given up on by medical
doctors because of cancer in the jaw and throat area that had spread into his
lungs etc. It is amazing what the urotherapy is doing for him...he would have
been dead already had he not started the urotherapy when he did.
My husband is documenting his progress and taking pictures of how the
urine therapy is completely removing all dead and cancerous tissue and starting
to rebuild the area with fresh new tissue as it regenerates the fat and new
cells to repair the tremendous damage done by operations, chemotherapy, and
radiation. The urine therapy has completely taken away some of the horrible
scars that were caused by the extensive surgery.
I could go on and on in our own lives about what urine therapy has done even
on a spiritual level...so we are grateful to you for your information on your
site regarding this undiscovered therapy by the large majority of the population
here in the US. It is definitely a gift from God. Urine therapy is not just for humans...
Urine ingestion may have saved Gangrene Leg
A testimonial from Rayna Knighton in New Zealand
My friend Margaret's father had a bad case of diabetes and
the blood circulation in one of his legs totally stopped. The doctors in England
where he lived were going to amputate his leg. She went to England to see what
was going on and refused to allow them to amputate, even when they told her
he would die if it was not done. It was turning black and the gangrene was moving.
Quite some time ago, I had told her about the wonderful healing properties of
urine ingestion that my homeopathic doctor friend had told me about, as she
was open to alternate health regimens. He had lent me some books on the subject
to read and I was amazed, and will admit a little sceptical, but I passed the
information on to her nonetheless.
She remembered what I'd told her, and she was desperate,
so when she visited her father in the hospital she'd make him a cup of tea and
dump a little of her own urine in it. Within a very short time the doctors were
amazed to find that the circulation of blood has resumed in his leg, that it
was returning to its normal colour and also that his uncontrolled diabetes was
under control. (He still has to take his insulin, but the sugar level readings
in his blood are reasonable and steady)
She stayed in England with her parents for two months and
eventually brought them back to New Zealand where they moved to a house near
where Margaret and her husband live. She visits every day and still makes her
father his special cup of tea. She tells me he would be horrified if he knew
about the extra ingredient in his tea, and that he was now gardening and generally
feeling well. The doctors still can't figure out what happened. This is a man
who was in bad health in general.
When I mentioned this to my homeopathic friend, he told me
I had saved this man's life and that he probably would have died had they taken
his leg. He was also surprised this was happening with his daughter's urine
and not his own because women have different properties in their urine than
men do. And that each of us has properties in our urine that are unique to every
one of us, so he was surprised that this healing should be taking place with
a woman's urine. Margaret is very close to her father and feels that that closeness
has a bearing. The point of all this is that nothing has been changed in her
father's treatment or condition except that he has a little extra something
in his tea everyday. She and I are both convinced the "tea" has made the difference.
Margaret herself had been unwell for about 7 years. She'd
had a car accident and as a result lots of trouble with her neck. She couldn't
turn her neck enough to feel comfortable driving, so she stopped. She was also
having continual infections and often on courses of antibiotics, which never
seemed to knock out the infections. And in general she felt unwell. After she
started her own urine therapy, she started feeling much better. No more infections,
so no more antibiotics. Her neck is feeling better, so she's driving again.
She has renewed energy and tells me she hasn't felt this good in seven years.
She's also looking better than I have ever seen her look and is also using her
urine as a skin lotion.
I have been drinking probably about 3 to 4 ounces every day
in my morning tea for several months now. My Richard brings me a large cup of
tea every morning with a little honey in it, and when he's not looking I dump
a little extra something in it. (He also would be horrified if he knew what
I was doing) Mid stream morning urine is the best because it has a higher concentration
of good stuff in it than at any other time of the day. I also use a little on
my face morning and nightime before I put the creams on my face. I apply some
on my face, rub it in till it dries, and then rinse it off with warm water and
as a result my face has plumpted up, the skin is softer and the lines very much
minimised. I am almost 62 and my skin hasn't been this nice in years.
I recently ran into someone I hadn't seen in about three
years last weekend who couldn't get over how good I looked. She said I looked
even better now than when I had seen her three years earlier. My skin now has
a glow to it that I can only attribute to this. My skin is firmer and the wrinkles
have almost disappeared. My pores are smaller. Lots of expensive face creams
have uric acid in it and we know where uric acid comes from. I have not had
a depressed moment since I have been doing this. I have not gotten sick. I felt
a sore throat coming on after we came home from our last trip away and were
31 hours in transit. After drinking my "morning tea" the next day at home, I
felt the sore throat just going away. This afternoon I had an earache went to
lie down, slept for an hour awoke refreshed and the earache was gone. I usually
would take strong aspirin for this problem, which I've had before. All I did
this time was sleep a little!
Last week I infected my finger very badly, I applied some
cortisone cream and put a bandage on it. Four days later, I took off the bandage
and the infection was still there. It had not improved one bit. I was frightened
at the look of it and thought I'd try something different, so several times
a day, I applied a little urine to my finger and watched the infection disappear
in a very short time. I never did cover the finger with another bandage, but
was careful to keep it clean and applied my urine often. It was an amazing healing
that took place. I do the same with with mosquito bites and the unique little
biting insects in NZ called sand flies, which you can go nuts with because those
bites are terrible - and almost immediately the itch goes away.
A few months ago, I bought the book "Your Own Perfect Medicine"
by Martha Christy (ISBN 0-9632091-1-6), the one my friend had lent me and found
out lots of interesting and wonderful things about the antibodies, vitamins,
minerals; the combination of which is totally unique to each of us. Accordingt9
Christy, there are anti-allergen antibodies in our urine that is manufactured
by the body itself and when reintroduced back into the body, the allergic reactions
stop. Urine compresses clear up skin conditions. Dreaded illnesses go. As you
all probablyu know, it's a wonderful, informative book with diverse cases of
I keep forgetting to use it on my hands. I read that the
skin on hands becomes soft. I'll try to remember starting today. The book also
emphasises that treatments will work better if people are diligent about eating
properly and taking time to rest.
On page 179, it says: "Many lifetime users of urine therapy,
such as the former prime minister of India, have commented that regular use
of urine therapy noticeably assists in maintaining energy levels, reducing ageing,
and in preventing illness."
There is also mention about how taking a little of our own
urine to take away depression. I am so pleased that my moods are even now. I
still get a little annoyed and tired and experience the emotions that normal
people go through, but it doesn't seem to have a long negative and lasting impact
on me anymore, which is wonderful. I feel peaceful.
My daughter once told me that she'd met a retired nurse with
the most beautiful skin she'd ever seen and asked her about it. The woman, who
was elderly, told her that she'd been a baby nurse and had always saved the
urine-soaked diapers of babies and applied them to her face. Carrin thought
that terrible, but then my daughter has always unfortunately been rather closed-minded.
I'm sure this information is common knowledge to you all,
but being a new member jumping in for the first time, I take the chance of repeating
what you all might know anyway - so if that is true - please forgive me.
Best wishes from Rayna in New Zealand

54 years old and much happier and most of all confident towards the future.
I decided to tell about our experience to
encourage people to start the therapy. I found out about the therapy after my
husband got desperate with a situation doctors could not do anything about.
It started with simple jock itch which came back as a severe case of candida
after being administered strong antibiotics. He was swollen and red up to his
knees, he had red itchy patches on his right foot, belly, between his fingers
etc.. Needless to say he was suffering. His doctor refused to give him anymore
antibiotics and he was left to himself. He lost 27 pounds in 2 months. After
trying all sorts of natural solutions with no results, he wanted to buy antibiotics
from the Internet. I succeeded in stopping him and promised to search for a
solution. I told him: “Hang on, I am sure there is something ‘natural' that
would help you”. After searching the Internet all day for a week, I came upon
that word ‘urotherapy' which was completely new to me. It got my full attention!
I could not get enough articles to read. I decided to buy a few books. After
my husband read all the articles I had printed from the Internet, he was ready
to start. I won't go into details here but in two days the redness and swelling
was gone and it took about a month before the hurting and itching stopped. Today
he looks healthy again but I don't know what he would be today if we havn't
learned about this therapy.
I joined him a little later with the therapy
and its changing my life completely! I am much happier and most of all confident
towards the future. I am 54 and even though I looked and felt healthy enough
for my age, I still benefited greatly from the therapy! Most of all I sleep
a lot better (insomnia was my biggest problem) approx. 8 hours per night now
and I don't take any medication. Other improvements is my complexion. People
say I look better as I grow older and that there is a glow about me??? I used
to have a complexion that looked like a grapefruit with open pores etc... Now
it is smooth and I don't need lipstick as I have natural pink colors on my cheeks
and lips. When I was young I needed to take iron supplements as my hemoglobin
was always low. Needless to say I was always pale.
With the therapy and because of it I drink
more water and eat better. Changing habits is a long process but I am getting
there. My outlook on growing older has changed and we have nice projects for
retirement. I had other small problems that could have made retirement a constant
back and forth to the doctors office. Before I started the therapy, I could
not sleep on my right side because of a sore hip. This problem went away (I
had to put a compress on the hip though). I passed a kidney stone before starting
the therapy. I have not been bothered with that problem since. I used to clean
my throat (lots of mucus) all the time which is anoying to other people. Sometimes
it was so bad that my throat was ‘on fire' and I often had dreams that I was
pulling all sorts of “debris” from my throat. Well at least I don't make those
dreams anymore but I still clean my throat once in a while mostly after eating.
The difference is that I don't feel I have something stuck in the throat and
it doesn't hurt anymore. I feel the problem is fading away. I know that drinking
more water also helps a lot. The other day I got rid of a mole which was as
big as a pea (but was raised approx. 1/16 on an inch) and was growing every
year. I realized that the urine had to penetrate the mole. It dried up and there
its now gone. I thought I would need a small surgery to get rid of that mole.
That for me was miraculous! Sylvie
Grandma dodges gangrene with topical urine application
"Lately, when Grandma (92 years old) had a very badly bruised spot on her ankle,
mom was at the end of her wits to get it to heal. The doctor's antibiotics didn't
help, neither did colloidal silver, peroxide, grapefruit seed extract, or many
of the herbs (echinacea, chaparral, etc.). Then when mom said it was looking
like gangrene was setting in, I remembered the books saying that applying urine
was about the single most effective treatment for gangrene. Grudgingly, I mentioned
it... mom said it couldn't hurt... and within three days I got a call telling
me that since she soaked a cloth with grandma's urine and kept it applied (changing
it a few times a day), it looks like the infection was gone and there was healthy
pink skin forming at the edges already. This after about 5 or 6 weeks of downhill
slide. Mom was thrilled, as was grandma, whose ankle no longer hurt."

Julie Advises how to drink urine
It is difficult to convince
people to drink their urine because they do not know how to do it without being
disgusted. Since I have been drinking my urine for years, on the recommendation
of a Japanese doctor, I will give you this tip so that you can help your (hopefully)
many friends and believers:
When drinking your urine,
just plug your nose; you will still feel the taste of the urine, especially
when it is very salty (after eating salad for example), but you will not smell
it at all.
It was only when I started
using this method that I could discipline my-self and started drinking about
2 to 3 ounces of my urine every day.
I had no choice; I had double
pneumomia, twice, and I almost died every time. I had flu and thorethroat all
the time, and since my blood pressure is quite low, I was always tired.
But the worst is that I do
not have health insurance; if I become ill, it would be better for me to be
dead since I have no one to take care of me. My situation gave me a lot to think
Since I started drinking,
I have never been sick again, but frankly, the only way to do it is by plugging
I presently drink my urine
about 3 weeks per month. I stop when I have my periods.
I find it wonderful that
you had started this website and I want to thank you for allowing me to get
much more information about this wonderful, miraculous theraphy. - Julie
Yogadhi sees personal proof of the power of topical UT
I had a wonderful chance to see the results personal proof of the power of topical UT on cuts yesterday
when I received a relatively deep gash on my forehead requiring 15 stitches.
When I received the cut I immediately applied pressure to slow the bleeding
and drove from the OM On The Range property 45 minutes up in the mountains to
the hospital. After the stitches I went home and immediately begin to apply
urine topically in soaked pads for the rest of the day ignoring the doctors
instructions to apply a antibiotic cream he gave me.
Surprisingly the pain was
moderate throughout the day and swelling was minimal. I felt almost normal.
At bed time I decided it was time to follow the doctors advice and use the antibiotic
cream. I applied the cream and passed into a fitful sleep. Two hours later I
awoke from sleep with a blinding headache. When I looked in the mirror I saw
in shock that in this short time period the whole front of my forehead was swollen
out about an inch and was an angry bright red. The cut that had remained sedated
all day with UT was now leaking blood, pus and lymphatic fluid down my face.
Realizing the mistake I had
made by stopping topical UT, immediately I began to apply swatches soaked in
urine to my face again. Amazingly I watched and felt as in minutes my forehead
pain begin to subside and the swelling diminish. In an hour it was back under
control. The bleeding stopped, the pus disappeared. The skin returned to a almost
normal color and headache was completely gone in a hour. I slept restfully the
rest of the night. Isn't this amazing! Here before my eyes I saw the effect
of UT as a painkiller, antibiotic, cleanser and sleep aid. I saw dramatically
how UT can reduce tissue swelling, and fight infections. The entire healing
I saw so directly is fundamental in helping all disease states. The next day
the healing has continued quickly. At the most traumatic spot where there was
a rather large flap of skin that was totally smashed into my cranium almost
1/2 inch, the tissue looked a almost normal rosy pink of health. There has been
almost no bruising at all except around the stitches. I wait excitedly for tomorrows
results and will keep you updated. You Are Love Yogadhi
Wendy experiences big improvements
I have been reading a lot about UT. I read several books "Your Own Perfect Medicine" and "The Golden Fountain"
I have started with the therapy. I started with a few drops and the first 2
weeks I noticed a big improvement in my allergies and my autoimmune disease
called "pemphigoid". I only have blisters in my mouth but they can be quite
painful. They seemed to get a lot better and I started ingesting a few ounces
a day. Now after six weeks I feels my mouth is bad again. The only reason I
feel I may have regressed is because I have been drinking wine again two glasses
per night. At first when I started UT I stopped the wine and coffee. Maybe this
has a bearing on the results. According to Martha Christy diet has a lot to
do with recovery. I may just have to stop drinking any coffee and wine if it
will help. Rinsing with urine helps as much as the dexamethasone rinse the doctor
gave me, actually moreso. I never want to use the drugs the doctors want to
try (prednisone,neoral or dapsone) I would rather use this therapy. I am quite
young to have this disease which hits 1 in 350,000 people mostly over age 65
I am told. I am 46 yrs old. I would really like to try the Urine Fasting but
should I be ingesting more urine daily before trying this? I really don't have
anyone near me to talk about this. - Wendy

Healing diabetes, improving blood circulation, and much more with urine therapy (UT)
A testimonial from Rayna Knighton in New Zealand - September 1999
My friend Margaret's father had a bad case of diabetes and the blood circulation in one of his legs totally
stopped. The doctors in England where he lived were going to amputate his leg.
She went to England to see what was going on and refused to allow them to amputate,
even when they told her he would die if it was not done. It was turning black
and the gangrene was moving. Quite some time ago, I had told her about the wonderful
healing properties of urine ingestion that my homeopathic doctor friend had
told me about, as she was open to alternate health regimens. He had lent me
some books on the subject to read and I was amazed, and will admit a little
sceptical, but I passed the information on to her nonetheless.
She remembered what I'd told her, and she was desperate, so
when she visited her father in the hospital she'd make him a cup of tea and
dump a little of her own urine in it. Within a very short time the doctors were
amazed to find that the circulation of blood has resumed in his leg, that it
was returning to its normal colour and also that his uncontrolled diabetes was
under control. (He still has to take his insulin, but the sugar level readings
in his blood are reasonable and steady)
Healing Second Degree Burn With Aged Urine
A testimonial from Shirley
Robinson, Hollywood, CA - May 2000
One morning my son sustained a severe second degree burn from scalding water on his left
hand. His hand was bright red (like a freshly cooked lobster) and swollen. He
was in a lot of pain. I immediately rubbed on his hand a chinese cream for burns
and gave him 2 homeopathic remedies (causticum and cantharis). Ten minutes later,
the hand was still bright red and swollen.
I remembered the story of a young boy in ancient China who was severely burned all over his
body and he was near death. His life was eventually saved with external application
of very old urine. So I grabbed my bottle of 7 year old urine (yes, seven years
old) that I had stored awasy and soaked a washcloth with it, which I wrapped
over Sterling's hand. I placed a plastic sandwich bag over the hand, covered
it with another wash cloth, and pulled his sweatshirt over the hand. I checked
the hand 10 minutes later and the redness and swelling was gone. Sterling went
to sleep for a few hours. When he woke up, my husband and I looked at his hand
in total amazement. We could not tell that it had ever been burned. All signs
of swelling, redness, or burn were gone!
Seven years ago I had listened to a lecture about the healing properties of urine (on audio)
from Dr. Robin Murphy, a naturopath and homeopath. He talked about the incredible
healing power of AGED URINE (the oldest, the better, but I think it is only
for external use) and I learned about this boy in ancient China who was near
death from severe burn all over his body. They wrapped his entire little body
in towels soaked with very old urine. The next day, all traces of burns were
gone and the boy was like new.
When I heard
this lecture, I didn't waste any time to start collecting my urine in large
one gallon glass jars and smaller plastic bottles. Over time, I watched this
urine transform itself into a dark brown, extraordinarily smelly compound that
eventually developed a little brown and white foam and bubbly matters. Because
we live in Los Angeles, I was terribly worried that an earthquake could break
those jar, spill the contents in my apartment, and believe me, we would have
to move out, due to the stench. Every year, I am debating the idea of throwing
this urine out, before a disaster hits.
When I opened one of the bottle yesterday morning to help Sterling, I was surprised that after
seven years of aging, that urine didn't smell as bad as I thought it would.
It smelled more like ammonia, and it wasn't so bad. (big relief!). After witnessing
the truly miraculous cure on my son's hand, this urine is more precious to me
now than gold and I will continue to keep it and let it age as long as I live.
Practicing Urotherapy daily for the past twelve years.
I first discovered urine therapy in summer of '88 and have been practicing it daily for the past
twelve years. It has cured everything in me from sexually transmitted diseases
to depression. I've only recently begun combining it with tantric zhao zheng
exercises to awaken kundalini. I'm now 36 years old but most people say I look
24 years old, the age I began practicing. Some say I look like I'm in my teens.
I want to wait til I'm fifty and I'll let you know how it works then.
The reason people grow old and die is that they are actually starving to death. During
research I came upon an autopsy report that described the inside of the intestinal
system. The doctors discovered that as people age, their intestines become caked
with food particles, some even found remnants of the very first meal in their
intestines (so they said). As the intestines become caked with this debris,
the person is less able to derive nutrition from the food he/she is eating,
slowly starving to death.
With manav mootra the urine actually cleanses out the intestinal tract of this debris and
one of its benefits is an increased sense of energy. All of the accumulated
toxins, which were lodged in the body and which were slowly poisoning it are
expelled naturally and the body is returned to a state of natural health.
Urine Universal Remedy and migraine
As you know I am a Homeopath, Herbalist, Aromatherapist, Reflexologist. I have had a problem
with a really bad migraine for aprox. 30 days in a row, non stop (eveyday ).
This has NEVER happened to me before. I have (of course ) done all I could with
herbs, and homeopathic treatments and changed my eating habbits, etc. etc. NOTHING
HELPED!!!! Until I used URINE. I have used urine therapy before internally and
externally on myself and others. But I was so amazed in the quickness of my
recovery using urine for my migraine. The UNIVERSAL Remedy
was mixed, (a few drops of my own urine with an ounce of water, and succused
(or shook ) it aprox 1000 times ) this actually makes it into a homeopathic
remedy. I took a few drops every hour for one day, after the third hour the
migraine was gone !!!!! I continued taking the drops till the day was done,
succusing the bottle 10 x prior to each intake. I still dont know what the cause
of my headace was but its gone with no side effects from suppresive western

I have been practicing auto-urine therapy for about two years now. As a child I was diagnosed
VERY late in the game with kidney reflux (where the valves in you kidneys allow
the urine they've already processed to be dumped back in constantly, causing
SERIOUS overwork. At age 10 when they finally diagnosed this to be the problem,
I was positively grey. I slew of ailments had always plagued me due to this
excessive "system work" ranging from scarlet fever to heart failure and stroke.
Having been through that time of mis-diagnosises and serious illness, my immune
system has never been able to handle what others' immune systems can. Now, this
is where the auto-urine therapy comes into play, I must say, without getting
into great detail over the particular aspects of the vanishing illnessess, that
this has been the only thing that has improved my quality of life substantially,
I am literally feeling younger the more time passes. Even down to the minor
details of hair, teeth, eyes, nails, skin, etc. - they've all improved to an
incredible degree. The before and afters are astounding evidence to what this
therapy yields. -Drade Coda
The following testimonials
are from the Health Education Library
Universe of health and education in India
Dr. V.P. Mehta, Mumbai
I am a qualified and experienced medical doctor with the highest degrees both
in medicine and surgery. On March 12, 1986, I was diagnosed with cancer of the
ary-epiglottic area (throat) with enlarged cervical lymph nodes. After receiving
chemotherapy and a course of cobalt therapy I was to be operated on. Between
August and October I tried UrineTherapy. By October 5, 1986, my disease was
under control and the proposed surgery was cancelled. I have not only recovered
in a medical sense, but I am also leading a fully active professional life.
In other words, even the quality of my life has improved. I feel the same zeal
which I felt 30 years ago.
I was laughing and snickering in the back of the room. After all, who would
take anyone seriously talking about drinking one's own urine to heal any disease!
My main concern at the time was how I was going to handle this diagnosis of
full-blown AIDS and with what "spirituality" was I going to handle an oral,
palatal Kaposi's sarcoma lesion that was supposed to spread relentlessly throughout
my body. I was told just two months prior to this that the prognosis could be
about two years more if I was fortunate, and to seriously consider preparing
a "living will."
reasons, I seemed to be much more tolerant to the idea of applying urine topically
for all sorts of conditions. My right foot was the epitome of necrosis. For
months doctors had prescribed many different medicated creams for a vicious
case of athlete's foot/ringworm. Nothing seemed to work. After all, the root
of the problem is the immune system not functioning at full capacity. I couldn't
wait to go home to put my own urine on the foot.
was the first time in many months that the tingling itch did not drive me into
a frenzy! I actually got a full night of sleep. Not only did the ringworm condition
totally disappear after a few weeks, but the dry, cracked and painful skin all
around my toes and bottom of the foot had totally changed in colour and texture!
New skin had grown in and was soft as a baby's. It had a beautiful new flushed,
almost orange-like color and it just did not appear to be my own skin!
began to research the field of autogenous fluids and, shortly thereafter decided
that recycling my urine was really a harmless form of auto-toleration based
on theories not much different than those in the science of homeopathy.
my urine was not that difficult, but deconditioning myself was the real chore.
I felt betrayed by society upon learning that our urine is not a poisonous,
toxic and filthy substance that our bodies so heroically expel. Since urine
is filtered and cleansed blood, and the blood is 95% water, how many dangerous
substances can there really be in urine?
with just a small ounce, I gradually began drinking my body's own distilled
preparation with respect instead of disgust. I then graduated to drinking up
to 8 ounces daily. Over the next 7 months the Kaposi's sarcoma lesion became
increasingly smaller until it disappeared totally! The mouth ulcers that used
to plague me, stinging during meals, have not returned even once. I used to
have monthly outbreaks of genital herpes, but I am elated to say that autogenous
UrineTherapy has produced a state of tolerance even against the herpes virus
that sooner or later, in conjunction with Ebstein-Barr virus (EBV), Cytometgalovirus
(CMV), and papilloma virus would have surely complicated my existence and further
weakened my immune system... just a matter of time. I have NEVER felt better
in my life. Now, I no longer fear for my life.
I am a PWA (person with AIDS). I have been doing Urine Therapy for three months.
My fatigue and dizziness dissipated within the first month. I experienced intense
eye itchiness. A few drops of fresh urine stopped it immediately. If I forget
to take the urine one day, the next day I will pay for it with fatigue. Also
my lymph gland swelling is reduced by 50%.
I had been suffering from migraine headaches for 35 years. In addition, rheumatoid
arthritis had plagued me for the last 15 years. The pain and swelling in the
joints of my hands was unbelievable. I could not leave the house without painkillers.
For four months, half of my foot was covered with a fungus. I tried many different
treatments. Unfortunately, it only got worse. At 198 pounds, I was overweight
aswell. Needless to say, I was not the picture of health. Then a friend told
me about Urine Therapy. I soaked my feet in urine, and within a week, the fungus
cleared up. Then I started drinking my own urine. The result was just incredible.
Four and a half months later, my weight was down to 130 pounds. I have lost
68 pounds! My arthritis is gone, and my headaches are gone. I feel like I am
20 years old again. Thank you for telling me about Urine Therapy.
Seven years ago, I was diagnosed with a lymphatic disorder. The doctors first
thought it was Hodgkin's disease. During a vacation in Brazil I contracted some
parasites. One was Shigella and the other was Giardia. I was treated with penicillin
and many other antibiotics. But I still lost weight and the diarrhoea was persistent.
Then the new testing for AIDS came out, and I tested positive. I had constant
problems with thrush. I also suffered from Kaposi's sarcoma intermittently over
portions of my body. My energy level was very low.
To make long
story short, I started Urine Therapy. The first treatment with urine was on
my skin. The second day I noticed that the KS lesions were starting to fade.
Then I stared to drink my own urine. I took about one ounce a day in the beginning.
went away. Every time when I apply urine to any aberration or sore on my skin,
it all but disappears. The KS leision I was talking about is not even one-fourth
the original size. Also, my energy level is much higher. I had colitis. I no
longer have an inflamed colon. I am steady as a clock and do not suffer anymore
from chronic diarrhea. So evidently this is working for me.
One and one-half months ago I was diagnosed with gonorrhea, anal sores and herpes.
I took medication and the condition improved but two weeks later the herpes
came back even worse. So I started UrineTherapy. Within two or three days, everything
cleared up totally. What was even more amazing to me is the parasite problem
I suffered for quite some tome got resolved inadvertently with Urine Therapy,
while treating my herpes.
The last 40 years I have suffered from eczema, and the last 20 years from amoeobic
dysentery. I got rid of both diseases by this wonderful remedy, Urine Therapy.
You will be further surprised to know that there were some side effects too;
but not of the usual nature, which you suffer in allopathic treatments. I also
suffered from falling hair and dandruff. I always used to have cracks in my
feet and even on my lips during all the seasons. Once every few months I also
suffered form stomatitis. I got rid of all the above complaints and ailments
unknowingly, as side effects of this therapy.
My wife was
a regular patient for more than 20 years and was suffering from numerous disease
like ear trouble, vertigo, constipation, pain in the joints and many more. She
tried the best available treatments in allopathy, homeopathy and ayurvedic medicine
but without any results. At last she tried UrineTherapy and got rid of all her
And if this
is not enough, my younger son, 17 years old, suffered from hematuria (blood
in the urine) for more than a year. The doctors thought that something was seriously
wrong with his kidneys and recommended an intravenous polygraph. I persuaded
my son to start drinking his urine for 30 days and then to take another urine
test. After that period of time, the report of the urine test came back absolutely
If it is of interest to you for any research purposes, I nearly died from the
reactions of several strong antibiotics administered over several months of
lung infections. I have been hospitalized three times in the past year for the
resulting gastro-intestinal problems created by the medication. After the most
recent hospital stay, I refused to continue with the medication. Most of the
problems began to clear up within a few days. However, my rectal bleeding from
colitis and internal hemorrhoids continued. In the meantime a friend told me
that in the Tennessee Hills, where he was raised, urine enemas were used for
similar problems. On July31,1988, I began using urine for daily enemas. By the
end of the following week, the bleeding had stopped completely, and as of this
date (September25, 1988), I have not passed a single drop of blood.

URINE THERAPY CURED PNEUMONIA BACK PAIN and MORE. November 2003.
I had pneumonia, went to the doctor who said, "If you feel worse, come into emergency and we
will put you in hospital. He then sent me for x-rays.
He gave me a prescription for DOXYCYCLINE. I had extreme pain with every breath I took
and took only 2 pills from my prescription because I was just getting sicker and sicker.
My daughter drove me to emergency the following morning, (in my housecoat) because I was
so sick I was literally panting for air. My left lung felt like it weighed a
ton and I could not sleep or lie down because of the accumulated fluid. I also
had a lump *across* my lungs that looked like a piece of Garlic Sausage under
the skin. When I touched this "sausage" it was all gooshy and squishy. My husband
could see this clearly too as it was so large.
When I arrived
in emergency I was told the emergency doctor was not in the hospital ( I live
in a small town) and I would have to go to his office...I did. He insisted that
if I took ZITHROMAX I would be better in three days. I took the prescription
and was much worse.
the pharmacist and was told that ZITHROMAX would not be in my system more than
48 hours. I waited, and for the first time in my life I was very aware that
people my age (62) died from this disease. I was really scared and had never
ever been so sick in my life.
At the end
of my 48 hours I went into the bathroom, gulped down my urine, and **immediately**
I could take a half-lungful of air. This was at 10 a.m. I consumed every drop
of (midstream) urine passed for the rest of the day.
3 p.m. the same day, I showed the "garlic sausage" to my husband who said, "It
looks like it is smaller." By 5 p.m. I could take a full lung full of air and
the only discomfort I felt was the fluid in my lungs, but it was much less than
it had been when I started UT that morning and the excruciating pain was gone.
day I continued to consume all that I passed. About 11:30 the following morning
the "Garlic Sausage" was GONE! I could now sleep comfortably, it felt like all
but one teeny little spot of fluid was gone from my lungs and I *knew* I was
better! In only two days, I was weak, but I was healed!
days after my first doctor visit and x-rays, the doctor's office called and
said, "Libby they are very concerned about the amount of fluid that showed up
on the X-rays and the doctor wants to see you right away. (This was a different
doctor than the Emergency room doctor).
looked very shocked when he came in and I was sitting there with a big smile,
breathing properly and obviously better. I told him about the ZITHROMAX and
he said, "Yeah, that's Bill's favorite." I told him it didn't help and he was
shaking his head in agreement with me. I asked him how long it normally takes
to get rid of pneumonia and the amount of fluid I had and he said, "Oh, at least
I then told
him I had used UT and asked him if he had heard of it. He said, "Yes, I've heard
of it." He would not though, give it credit for healing my condition. He wanted
me to go for more X-rays. I said, "When my X-ray comes back clear, will you
then give UT some credit.
"Nope, it was the ZITHROMAX." I reminded him that I saw him shaking his head
in agreement when I said it did not work and his response was, "I need you to
go for X-rays right now," and that was the end of our visit. I was never called
back for another check up.
side-effects to UT: In December of last year I was rear-ended in a car accident,
left with excruciating back pain and was put on a prescription for muscle relaxants.
My favorite hobby in life is to dance but since the accident I could not even
waltz. I couldn't sweep my floors, vacuum, lift my great-grand children, or
go shopping as pushing the cart made the pain unbearable. On the fourth day
after starting the UT my back pain was gone! I have not taken any medicine for
it since then and on New Year's eve I danced—even jived! I had no pain!
- My yeast
infection is gone.
though I thought my 22 pound weight loss was from the pneumonia, (and Christmas
is over), I have only gained back four pounds.
"Thank you body,
for creating such a wonderful healing modality!"

"The Buddha Medicine"
By Bhikkhu U. Dhammajiva
Edited by: Swedish novice Dhammasami (Samuel Nordius)
"Glad at heart, I pay homage to the supreme
sage- the giver of blissful peace, the grate ocean of virtue, the physician
for the samsaric ills of beings, the sun that dispel the pitchy darkness
of false views!" – Lo-wáda Sangarava, 15th century
In Burmese meditation-centers, as in monasteries
in most Theravada-Buddhist countries, you often find a peculiar kind of medicine:
Yellow Myrobalan nuts (in Pali: Hritaki
, in Latin: Terminalia Chebula
pickled in cow's urine. The Burmese people calls it Pheya-se,
Medicine', since it's based on a recipe found in the oldest Buddhist texts,
the Pali Tipitaka
. It's considered to be a panacea for many diseases.
But does it really follow the original concept of the Buddha's recommendation
to use muttam
(urine) as medicine? That is what I intend to clarify in
this article by refering to four of the oldest Buddhist scriptures: 1.) The
the ancient collection of Buddhist monastic rules. 2.)
The Sutta Pitaka
, the ancient collection of the Buddha's discourses.
3.) The so-called ‘Commentary' and ‘Sub-commentary', texts written by bhikkhus
(Buddhist monks) in the centuries following the Buddha's death to clarify the
meaning of the texts found in the two collections first mentioned.
In an English translation of the Mahakkhandhaka
(a text in Mahavagga found in the Vinaya-Pitaka) the Buddha says:
"The religious life has decomposing
urine as medicine for its resource. Thus you must endeavor to live all
your life. Ghee, butter, oil, honey, and molasses are extra allowances.
An alternative translation says;
"Going forth [into the Holy Life] has
fermented urine as its support. For the rest of your life you are to
endeavor at that. The extra allowances are; Ghee, fresh butter, oil, honey,
There are four such necessary supports/resources
listed in the Vinaya Pitaka. In Pali, the language of the oldest Buddhist texts,
they are called "the Four Requisites", considered to be an absolute minimum
for the bhikkhus
to be able to live the Holy Life in line with the Buddha's
teaching. The above mentioned item, fermented urine, is the fourth of these
resources. All the four must be taught to the newly ordained bhikkhu in the
ordination hall immediately after his higher ordination ceremony. It's the responsibility
of the preceptor to make sure that all young bhikkhus knows them according to
the following prescription of the Buddha.
"I prescribe, O bhikkhus, that he who confers
the higher ordination (on a bhikkhu), tells him the four resources."
These are all the four resources listed in the
1. Robes: robes made of rags taken from a dust
heap as a resource
2. Alms food: morsels of food given in alms as a resource
3. Dwellings: a dwelling at the foot of a tree as a resource
4. Medicines: decomposing urine as medicine as a resource
These four requisites/resources the Buddha described
as being indispensable or the bare minimum. Accordingly a Buddhist monk must
endeavor to live all his bhikkhu life dependent only on them. He who is contented
and satisfied with whatever comes across along with these bare minimums is always
phrased in the community, as well as in the Commentary, as having contentment
with whatever four requisites he has. Whatever extra things he comes across
beyond these four items is just a result of his past good deeds, but they are
usually also allowed for the bhikkhus. As the founder of the Order, and therefore
its first bhikkhu, the Buddha assured all the bhikkhus that the prescribed bare
minimums are quite abundant. Besides, they were, at that time, free to find
wherever a bhikkhu would go.
In the Vinaya Pitaka, the books of monastic
discipline, this medicine (urine) is mentioned in several places. At one occasion,
for example, the Buddha recommend the yellow Myrobalan fruits pickled in urine
for a monk who was sick with jaundice (probably anaemia) to be taken orally:
"O, monks! I allow that urine and yellow
Myrobalan be drunk."
At another occasion the Buddha included urine
as an ingredient in a mixture to be used as an antidote for poisonous snake
bites. The other ingredients are excrement, soil and hot ash. This quote is
from the Vinaya Pitaka:
"For snake bite a medicine may be made of
the four great filthy things: excrement, urine, ash and clay. If there is
someone present to make these things allowable, one should have him/her
make them allowable. If not, one may take them for oneself and consume them."
The Commentary adds that this medicine is not
only for snake bites but also for any other poisonous animal bite.
Now, let's have a look at the second ancient
collection of Buddhist texts, the Sutta Pitaka. According to the Ariyavaüsa
Sutta in Anguttara Nikaya the Buddha phrases four requisites of noble
clans (or lineages of traditions) in nine terms:
"Bhikkhus, these four [requisites] belong
to the noble clan, were recognized by those gone by, were honored from the
past, recognized by the clan, was not confusing in the past and will not
confuse in the future and are not blamed by recluses, brahmins and the wise.
The following four items are then listed:
2. Alms foods,
3. Dwellings and
4 . (delight in development of) Meditation.
In the two different lists so far mentioned
the first one (quoted from the Vinaya Pitaka) says that the four requisites
for a monk are 1. robes, 2. alms foods, 3. dwellings and 3. medicines. In the
second list (which is quoted from the Sutta Pitaka) the first three are identical
to the first list while the forth item in the first list, medicines, has been
replaced by (delight in development of) meditation.
The Commentary to the Ariyavaüsa Sutta says
that even though the list, as it appeares in the Sutta Pitaka, drops the forth
item given in the Vinaya Pitaka (medicines) that item should be included in
the second item of the Sutta (alms food). Furthermore, confirming the same idea,
the forth item, (delight in development of) meditation, is specified as "contentment
with whatever four requisites comes" in the same Commentary. It says:
"Among these four belonging to the Noble
clan the first three items, inclusive of thirteen austerities, are elaborated
in the Vinaya pitaka while the item of (delight in development of) meditation
is elaborated in the rest of the two baskets (pitakas or collections
of Buddhist texts)."
To summarize, in the Sutta Pitaka you find only
the first three of these four requisites, with no urine or medicines mentioned,
but the Commentary says that the forth should be included in the list, in the
alms food so that all should be in completion to make delight in development
of meditation possible.
Hence decomposing urine as medicine can claim
for all the above mentioned attributes, that is: urine was "recognized as a
medicine by those gone by, those honored from the past; that it was recognized
by the clan; it was not confusing in the past and it will not confuse in the
future; and it's not blamed by recluses, Brahmins and the wise."
I would like to quote another translation of
the same Sutta which goes as follows:
"O monks, these four noble lineages pristine
[including decomposing urine as medicine], of long standing, traditional,
ancient, unadulterated and never before adulterated, which are not being
adulterated and which will not be adulterated, not despised by wise ascetics
The authors of this translation added a footnote
saying that in ancient Sri Lanka this was a very popular Buddhist discourse
among people of all walks of life and that it became the inspiration for an
annual festival. In traditional Sinhalese translations, as in Burmese and Thai
ones, the medicine mentioned in the text has been taken to be cow's
or, more specifically, Myrobalan fruits pickled
in cow's urine. Owing
to this translation some of the attributions of this medicine mentioned by the
Buddha doesn't appeared to be very convincing or practical since it would sometimes
be hard for a bhikkhu to find both the Myrobalan fruit and cow's urine. However,
in recent English translations we get some new practical sense to this medicine.
Let me add here that it's not only in Buddhism
that we find urine as a medicine but also in other denominations such as Christianity
(in The Holy Bible), Hinduism (in Damar Tantra) and, some claims, in Islam too
(in The Holy Koran). These traditions, however, have a somewhat different interpretation
than the Buddhist texts on how to use the medicine.
I can think of two reasons for why the usage
of urine as medicine resurfaced again contemporaneously in many traditions in
our time. The first is the increasing number of complications in the prevailing
allopathic or chemotherapeutic treatments of diseases which has made an increasing
number of people interested in alternative medicines. The second is the general
trend of searching for more holistic health systems, even ancient ones based
on different religious lines. Whatever the reasons may be the urine-method has
its own intriguing nature and might, I believe, still find a growing group of
A closer look at this therapy, under the current
trend, irrespective of creed, one finds a vast number of convincing testimonies
and subjective evidences on the benefits of the medicine. Buddhism can contribute
in its own way with its canonical and historical references on this subject
– provided that its ideas are presented in correct translations! So far we've
traced some quotations from the Vinaya Pitaka with relevant information prescribed
to bhikkhus. However, I think that the commentarial text has interfered in a
questionable and imperfect manner. In the traditional Buddhist countries, such
as Sri Lanka, Burma or Thailand, no efforts have been made in resent history
to get a clear idea of how the medicine was intended to be used, or how it was
used at the time of the Buddha.
The increasing amount of literature on the subject,
with testimonies and evidences from the other sources, made me think twice and
urged me to renew the way I read the quoted passages in the Buddhist canonical
sources. I went back to the original scriptures, untouched by the prevalent
traditional translations. When investigating the Sutta Pitaka with this inquisitive
pragmatic approach I came across the following quotation in the Majjima Nikaya
(the Middle Length Discourses of the Buddha), Sutta number 46 called Dhamma
"Bhikkhu, a man would come along suffering
from jaundice and he is told: ‘Friend, there is a drink made out of putrid
urine, with various kinds of medicines put in it. If you desire – drink.'
When drinking it would not be agreeable to sight, smell or taste but drinking
it you will get over your illness. He reflects about it and drinks it. It
would not be agreeable to sight, smell or taste, yet he would get over that
illness. I say this observance of the Teaching is comparable to this, as
it is now unpleasant and brings pleasant results in the future."
The Commentary to this Sutta says:
"[The Pali word] Putimuttan means
just ‘urine'. So it's said, that even if a person is golden in color his
body is described as repulsive in the scriptures. Even? born the very same
day the vine called Galocilata is also called Patilata (literary:
repulsive creeper). Even so, extracted in that very moment, the young (or
fresh) urine is called just puti (usually translated as ‘putrid'
The Sub-commentary continues to explain:
"[The Pali word] Putimuttan means
urine which is repulsive in nature. Tarunan means fresh or
young; as it flows out it is warm?. From that urine the early part of the
flow is meant here. The urine flowing out from the genital? remains warm
due to the body temperature."
These details indicate that the prevailing translations
of the Vinaya Pitaka might be incorrect. The Commentary and Sub-commentary leads
us to a more practical and pragmatic end, supported by the direct translation
of the Dhamma Samadana Sutta
. Yet they're often interpreted as meaning
urine from a cow
Just by consulting the relevant Commentary and
its Sub-commentary all doubts regarding the real meaning can be cleared out.
They state that urine – to be specific: one's own urine – would not be agreeable
to sight, smell or taste and accordingly has puti as an adjectival prefix.
It is puti not because it is rotten or fermented but because its intrinsic
nature is repulsive to the senses. If the common translations are changed
in line with this interpretation the basic idea of using urine as a medicine
becomes more palatable and, not to diminish, quite agreeable with the current
research and literature on the subject.
It's also interesting to note that the medicine
mentioned in the Dhamma Samadana Sutta (one's own urine mixed up with
other herbal medicine) is recommended to any individual who's suffering from
jaundice rather than to a just to the bhikkhus as is otherwise the case
in the Vinaya Pitaka. This tells that the medicine was not seen as just a ‘last
choice' but as a truly effective remedy.
In the light of this information we should look
again at the very first quotation in this essay. The main theme so far is that
repulsive urine as medicine, which is
the last of the four requisites for bhikkhus, is considered to be the absolute
minimum of medicine that a bhikkhu will need through out his life.
Pali term Putimuttabhesajja is a compounded term made out of at least
three pali roots; puti, muttaand bhesajja. As we've already seen
this word has been translated as:
Decomposing urine as medicine. Or as: 2.) Fermented urine as support.
word puti literally means either
decomposing or fermented, sometimes translated as rancid or putrefied. Muttam
means urine, sometimes translated as cows' urine, and occasionally as ammonia.
In the Vinaya Pitaka, whether with the
consultation of its Commentary or not, there is little chance to find out what
kind of urine is meant because neither the Vinaya nor its Commentary adds any
further light on the subject. In the Sutta Pitaka, on the other hand, especially
in MN. Sutta No 46 and its relevant Commentary and Sub-commentary, there's enough
evidence to suggest a more pragmatic meaning than that commonly accepted today.
"It would not be agreeable to sight, smell or taste" suggests that the
adjective putidoes not mean any decomposition, fermentation or putrefaction
but that urine is naturally disagreeable to sight, smell or taste – a statement
most people would agree with. The original recommendation may not have meant
any decomposition, fermentation or putrefaction at all, as the translators'
has interpreted it so far. Nor do the scriptures in any way indicate that it
was cow's urine that the Buddha originally referred to.
The Sub-commentary says: "As urine pass
out from the genital it is warm due to the body heat". There is not a word or
clue justifying the assumption that cows' urine is meant.
The interpretation I prefer, on the
other hand, is quite in line with the Commentary and the Sub-commentary to the
above mentioned Sutta and with the contemporary idea of using one's own urine.
Hence the translation to the first quotations could be rectified as follows:
"The religious life has your
(repulsive) urine as medicine for its resource. Thus you must endeavor
to live all your life. Ghee, butter, oil, honey, and molasses are extra
Or: "Going forth [into the Holy
Life] has your own (repulsive) urine as its support. For the rest
of your life you are to endeavor at that. The extra allowances are; Ghee,
fresh butter, oil, honey, sugar."
Likewise, all other quotations could
be corrected accordingly. This should give a radical new approach to the prescription
given by the Buddha. It certainly does give a new hope for a healthier lifestyle
– not only for the bhikkhus but for all who seek to live a more independent
kind of life.

UT Self-Therapy Methods
Excerpt from Nexus Magazine Healing with Urine Therapy
The middle stream of fresh, warm, morning
urine is the most potent, and drinking it mixed with freshly squeezed orange
juice is probably the fastest way to accomplish this task, although it is best
not to mix urine with other foods or drinks or to take it within an hour before
or after eating.
Oral drops of fresh urine can be placed
directly under the tongue. Urine therapists suggest their patients start with
5 drops of fresh morning urine on the first day, increase to 5andendash;10 drops
on the second day, and take 10 drops on the morning of the third day and the
same amount that evening before going to bed. Once patients feel comfortable
with this therapy, they can gradually increase the amount as they see fit to
obtain the results required for their body's condition. Over time, they can
learn to adjust the amount that is needed by observing their reactions to the
therapy; their dosage may become as much as one full cup at a time!
Self-urine may be used as eye drops
and ear drops, in foot baths and even as effective enemas. Nose drops can help
loosen mucus and clear up blocked nasal passages. Gargling with it is helpful
for a sore throat, and inhaling it relieves sinus and respiratory congestion.
Taken internally, it has a laxative and diuretic effect, as it cleanses the
Dr John Armstrong (author of The Water
of Life) emphasises the need to massage with urine. He insists that cures work
faster and more effectively in those who are bathed, massaged, rubbed and soaked
in their own urine. He highly recommends it for more serious illnesses, since
urine is absorbed through the skin and the hormonal and protein-based contents
are slowly reabsorbed into the system, bypassing digestive juices that otherwise
may have neutralised their potency. In this way, it also works as an excellent
cosmetic for moisturising and healing skin blemishes, burns and scar tissue.
However, for this usage, it is preferable to use urine that is 4 - 8 days old.
The smell of ammonia in the old urine is not toxic but actually beneficial if
used topically only, and not taken internally.
