Guide to Urine Therapy
Coen Van Der Kroon
Urine consists of 95% of water, 2.5% of urea and the remaining
2.5% is a mixture of minerals , salts, hormones and enzymes.
Only urea , the substance after which urine is named, can
be poisonous when present in the blood. However, this is
irrelevant in the practice of drinking urine, as urine
is not immediately put back in the bloodstream. In small
amounts urea gets back into the body, it is purifying,
and clears up excess mucus. Urine is entirely sterile after
secretion and has an antiseptis effect.
One of the liver's most important functions is detoxification
of the blood. The liver removes poisonous substances from
the blood and either stores them or secretes them into
the gall bladder. In the latter case, the poisonous substances
end up as bile in the intestinal canal. They then leave
the body in the form of defecation. After the blood is
detoxified by the liver, it flows to the kidneys.
The kidney's most important function consists of balancing
out all elements in the blood. They remove all superfluous
vital substances from the blood, and filter out a surplus
of water. This water and the vital substances consequently
form urine. In order to save energy and bring the blood
into balance, the kidneys remove unused enzymes from the
blood. The same goes for hor-mones, minerals and other
substances. It is clear that urine is full of vital elements,
which can hardly be called waste products.
Human urine has strengthening and curative characteristics
concerning many deficiencies. A mixture of potato and sulphur
powder, mixed with heated, old urine helps against hair
loss. One should rub this mixture into the scalp; this
slows down loss of hair. All kinds of throat inflammation
can be helped by gargling with urine to which a bit of
saffron has been added. Trembling hands and knees can be
helped by washing, and rubbing one's own warm urine into
the skin directly after one has urinated. An universal
and excellent remedy for all distempers inward and outward.
Drink your own water in the morning nine days together
and it cures the scurvy, makes the body lightsome and cheerful.
It is good against the dropsy and Jaundice, drunk as before.
Wash your ears with it warm and it is good against deafness
noises and nost other ailments in the ears. Wash your eyes
with your own water and it cures sore eyes and clears and
strengthens the sight. Wash and rub your hands with it,
and it takes away numbness, chaps and sores and makes the
joints limber. Wash any green wound with it and it is an
extraordinary good thing. Wash any part that itches and
it takes the itch away. Wash the fundament and it is good
against piles and other sores. More than any other method,
urine therapy represents the principles of natural medicine.
One's own urine is a specific medicine for anyone who is
ill. It is made for him or her personally and is just right
for what he or she needs at the present moment, because
it changes its composition all the time. It is not only
something that cures, but it also sustains health when
taken as a preventative. Taken energetically, one could
consider urine to be an exact hologram of both healthy
as well as diseased body fluids. All information from the
body fluids is collected and stared in the urine. One's
own urine is the best medicine for the kidneys that we
could imagine. It is clear for any hotistic health practitioner
that all cycles within the body are interconnected, and
this means that the healing of one of those cycles will
have a positive effect on the others. Urine was often used
at the front, for lack of other medication and as a disinfectant
for surgery instruments. A Russia doctor treated many people
from far and wide, and was able to alleviate or completely
cure illnesses with nothing else than urine therapy, while
other methods up until then had failed.
Drinking urine is a good alternative wherever water is
scarce. It not only satisfies the need for liquid, but
also actually keeps the body healthy. Some time ago there
was an earthquake in Egypt. A survivor was pulled out of
the rubble in Cairo after being trapped for three days.
The man had kept himself alive by, among other things,
drinking his own urine and he was in excellent condition.
I heard another story about a man who kept himself alive
with his own urine for a week in a collapsed mine. At the
time of his rescue, he looked fine and was in extraordinary
health. I also recently read an article about an Italian
athlete who was lost in the Sahara for ten days. Upon returning
to the civilised world, he told how he had drunk his own
urine for lack of other liquids. He had kept himself alive
by eating desert plants and insects and drinking his own
urine. Shipwrecked people can drink their own urinr to
surtive, although one should not wait until the body is
almost dehydrated before doing so. Drinking urine is also
a smart way to survive in situations in which water is
unsafe to drink. During earthquakes and floods, water is
often infected with pathogens, while urine is always scenic
Drinking polluted water can cause serious, often fatal,
illnesses Urine is a perfect alternative: if drunk fresh,
it quenches thirst without present-ing any danger and is
always available - any timer anywhere. Moreover, it will
help combat possible diseases. Soldiers have survived long
periods in the wil-derness by drinking their own urine,
and soldiers in the Foreign Legion are sometimes instructed
to rub their own urine into their skin in order to build
up resistance to illness. Soldiers sometimes also uri-nate
into their shoes before starting on a march, as urine apparently
helps prevent blisters. The method of using urine for (new)
shoes was often applied in the past and today I sometimes
meet people who know how to get their shoes fitting by
using this versatile fluid. It is generally not recommended
to combine urine therapy with the use of (prescribed) chemical
allopathc medicines or recreational drugs. The combination
may be dangerous to your health. If you are taking any
form of allopathic medicine, begin with the external application
(urine massage) until you are free of all medication, if
Urine therapy consists of two parts: internal appication
(drinking urine) and external application (massaging with
urine). Both aspects comple-ment each other and are important
for optimal re-sults. The basic principle of urine therapy
is therefore quite simple: you drink and massage yourself
with urine. Even so, there are a number of dif-ferent ways
to apply urine therapy. After your initial experiences,
you will be able to determine. Throughout the civilized
world, blood and blood products are used in the medical
world with-out evoking the repugnance associated with urine.
We often use prepacked cells, plasma, white blood cells
and countless other blood components. Urine is nothing
other than a blood product. We see ba-bies being breast-fed
and we are not filled with re-pugnance. We drink cow's
milk and eat cheese from cows, goats and other animals
without a second thought. We eat dairy products in the
form of blue cheese (moulded) or as sour drinks such as
yogurt and buttermilk, not to mention all the other bizarre
things which are considered to be delicacies. If it is
not the color (and it is not, because we drink wine, beer
and fruit juice of the same color);and if it is not the
smell (and it is not, because we consume considerable amounts
of cheese which smell much worse) and if it is not the
temperature, then perhaps it is the taste. How many people
do you know who have drunk enough urine to really know
what it tastes like? Probably not too many. Those who regularly
drink their own urine say it. But taking urine into your
mouth might be too big a step to begin with. Rubbing a
drop into the and first smelling your own urine can help
you to overcome part of the barrier. Really, it often does
not smell bad at all. Many people even like its some-times
sweet odor. More extensive massaging of urine into your
skin is also a good way to become accustomed to your life
water. How can you overcome feelings of aversion to drinking
your own golden elixir? Start by drinking a drop then a
sip each day and slowly build up to a fill glass of urine.
This is the most comfortable way to allow your body, mind
and soul to become accustomed to this therapy.
Another method, which I myself used, is to be-gin by fasting
for a few days. The urine is then so watery that after
the second glass you will notice only a slightly salty
taste, which makes it much easier to let go of the idea
that urine is dirty or at least tastes dirty. If you still
cannot bring yourself to drink your own urine pure, mix
a dash of it into a glass of fruit juice or mix it with
water and honey. Then try to switch over from the dilution
to drinking urine pure. Collect the middle stream of the
first morning urine. The small amounts at the beginning
and ending of urination do not have to be collected. The
first part rinses the urinary passage clean, so the urine
will be as sterile as possible. The last part sometimes
contains sediment and is of little value. Only your own,
fresh urine should be used. You are comfortable with. This
may vary from one to several glasses per day. If you drink
your urine not only in the morning but later in the day
as well, the urine from approximately one hour after eating
is usually the best. Do not eat up to thirty minutes after
drinking your urine. After a meal wait for at least an
hour before drinking any urine. A higher level of hormonal
discharge takes place at night when the body completely
relaxes and re-stores itself. Morning urine is therefore
the most rich in vital substances. No extra diet restrictions
apply if you drink one glass of morning urine per day,
but a diet low in salt and (especially animal) protein
is prefer-able and it will ensure that your urine tastes
and smells milder. However, if you drink urine several
times a day, a diet low in protein and salt is essential.
A lot of fresh fruit and vegetables are recommended.
Before a fast: Two days before the fast,
decrease the intake of protein-rich and heavy foods, especially
fried and fatty foods. Fruit and raw vegetables are easily
digestible and ensure that the intestines clean themselves
so the actual fast can easily begin. In this period, start
drinking greater amounts of urine.
Actual fast: In this period, exclusively
drink water and urine. It is best if you do not work during
the fast. Although some exertion is possible, rest and
relaxation are important in order for the purifying process
to take place undisturbed. In the beginning, stay with
drinking the middle stream. Alternated with urine, pure,
clean water can be drunk. Once the fast has been in progress
for some time, all the urine can be drunk. In this period,
you will urinate quite easily (urinating every fifteen
minutes is not unusual). A complete body massage every
day with old, heated urine is highly recommended. Urine
massage is good for blood circulation, and massaging with
old urine also ensures that you do not have heart palpitations
during the fast. Furthermore it serves as a way of feeding
the body through the skin, immediately into the muscle
and lymph tissue. During fasts, urine enemas are highly
recom-mended. Many illnesses begin in the intestines and
it is vey important to get rid of toxic waste products
stored in them and to keep them clean.
After a fast: This period is necessay
in order to slowly and carefully return to a normal and
natu-ral eating pattern. You should take at least one week
to gradually and carefully readjust your eating hab-its.
The best way to end a fast is to stop drinking urine and
water at the end of the afternoon. After one hour, drink
a glass of orange juice, lemon juice with water, grape
juice or apple juice. The next day, drink another glass
of fruit juice during lunch. From this time on, start eating
juicy fruits. The following day, eat vegetable broth, steamed
vegetables and rice. This is a good way to return to your
old pattern of eating, excluding the unhealthy habits.
If fasting exclusively on water and urine is too great
of a strain, consume one light meal per day. This fast
proceeds according to the same basic rules as a complete
fast, except for a few differences:
1) Eat a light meal consisting of wholemeal bread, brown
rice with steamed vegetables, raw vegeta-bles or fruit
preferably at the end of the afternoon. Chew the food well.
2) Refrain from eating or drinking (including urine or
water) one hour before and after the meal.
During a chronic illness, the body often has a high level
of toxicity, which means that poisonous substances can
be found in the tissues. Administering an enema is a good
way to remove poisonous substances from the body, and especially
from the intestines. Furthermore, a number of substances
found in urine are better absorbed by the body in this
way than by oral ingestion.
Urine should be kept in the mouth for twenty to thirty
minutes or, when that seems too much, as long as possible.
Gargling with urine is an effective way to fight gum problems
or other month and tongue disorders. In addition, toothaches
disappear quickly and teeth stay healthy. It can help heal
aphts quite fast. After gargling, spit the urine out again.
Painful, burning and tired eyes can be relieved by applying
a few drops of fresh or boiled urine to the eyes. Eye cups
with urine are also quite useful. It is sometimes wise
to dilute the urine used for eyedrops with a bit of water.Eyedrops
are very helpful in cases of conjunctivi-tis. Irritation
due to the wearing of contact lenses can disappear or be
relieved by this treatment. Regu-lar eye treatments with
urine therapy may improve eyesight. You can use four-day
old urine for earaches or ear infections, as old urine
enhances the effect of this method, but fresh urine will
do as well. Put some drops in the ears and close them with
some cotton wool dipped in oil. Salt water or urine is
sniffed in the nose from a small bowl. Sniffing urine is
the most effective treatment for a stuffed nose, other
sinus disorders such as sinusitis, and problems with the
uppermost part of the respiratory canal. This method also
af-fects the eyes positively. If pure urine is too strong,
dilute it with water. A 1/1.00.00 solution of urine should
be placed under the tongue. Begin with two drops a day
and increase this amount to ten drops a day. It is best
to keep urine in a dark brown glass bottle which can be
closed with a cork or some cotton wool, or glass pot with
the top or lid placed on top of it (rather than screwed
on). In this way the bottle or pot is closed while allowing
air in, which is necessary for the fermentation process.
When I go on vacation, I always keep a bottle of old urine
on hand as a first aid remedy for wounds. It works excellently.
Simultaneous compresses on the anus and abdomen are very
effective in the treatment of hemorrhoid.A mixture of clay
and urine applied directly to the skin, can be used in
the treatment of skin dis-eases.
For those who value smooth, flawless skin and a healthy
appearance massaging fresh urine daily into the skin in
the morning or in the evening is recom-mended. This is
the secret of many a sex symbol and beauty queen. You can
use this method during your morning shower. It is also
extremely effective as an aftershave lotion. If you can
smell the urine after using it as an after shave use a
(natural) per-fumed body or skin lotion. I rub fresh urine
thoroughly into my skin in the morning before I take a
shower and pay extra at-tention to my face and hair. Skin
becomes soft and smooth, and hair lustrous and clean. A
foot bath is good for the cir-culation and can also affect
the entire body, as reflex zones are situated under the
foot. Both heated, old and warm, fresh urine are suitable
for these purposes. If you plan to take a foot or hip bath,
collect your urine over the course of one day so that you
have enough to fill a washtub half-way. You can dilute
the urine with water to increase the amount of liquid in
This is an excellent remedy for dandruff, lifeless hair
and even baldness and hair loss. Massage urine briskly
into the scalp, allow it to be absorbed for thirty minutes
to an hour, and then wash it out with lukewarm water (do
not use soap or shampoo). Hair becomes clean and lustrous.
If you do not rinse out the urine, the effect is even more
pow-erful. You can use both fresh and old urine for this.
Your hair will, however, become more beauti-ful and vital.
Those who apply urine therapy often do not turn grey but
retain their original hair col-our at a later age. If intensively
applied, hair might grow again on bald spots.
While practicing the more intensive form of urine therapy
follow a diet low in protein and salt. Avoid refined pre-processed
and synthetic foods such as sugar, white flour, and canned
foods. Herbs (also in herbal tea) might cause the urine
to taste sharp and bitter making it more difficult to drink.
Some urine therapists advise against drinking milk, primarily
because dairy products are processed and contain unnatural
additives, and because milk produces a great deal of mucus
in the body. In general, it is advisable to decrease the
intake of acid-producing foods and to increase the in-take
of alkaline-promoting foods. Reduce the use of alcohol,
tobacco and caffeine to an absolute minimum. Urine therapy
is most beneficial if your diet contains no alcohol, tobacco
products, coffee, junk foods & meat.
Rub the infected areas with urine. Let the urine soak
in for one to two hours and then rinse with water. If this
method is not effective, place compresses on the areas.
Never squeeze or puncture pustules or blisters. They usually
disap-pear with correct treatment after three to seven
Vomiting particularly occurs when urine tastes and smells
very strong and unpleasant, such as is the case with fever,
jaundice and a number of other diseases. In some cases
drinking urine can be extremely unpleasant. However, if
you drink as much urine as possible, the urine will quickly
become thinner and taste more pleasant. Vomiting is good
in so far as it cleans the stomach, so there is no cause
for worry. After vomiting, you will be less tense and feel
better. If vomiting continues even after the stomach is
empty, call in professional help. After vomiting out urine,
rest and consume only some light liquids, such as water
with lemon juice. Once well-rested, continue with urine
Fever is actually the most thorough way for the body to
discard unwanted substances. Reduce the amount of urine
to be ingested, depending on how high the fever is, and
get a lot of rest. If necessary, temporarily cease urine
therapy until the fever has come down.
During a cleans-ing process the body sometimes removes
excess mucus from the lungs and bronchial tubes. If a great
deal of mucus is released, reduce the amount of urine to
be ingested or stop temporarily. Start inhaling urine through
the nose, as this clears the upper part of the bronchial
tubes. Avoid milk and dairy prod-ucts, as well as all mucus-producing
nutrients such as fat and carbohydrates. This can occur
as a result of the extra energy the body must exert in
order to excrete the surplus of poisonous substances. Pregnant
women can practise urine therapy with the following restrictions.
The first morning urine should NOT be ingested. After drinking
water, tea or milk, you may drink the second or third flow.
The urine should be light in colour, not too sharp or bitter
and not too concentrated. Women can drink their urine during
their men-struation period. Many women experience this
as unpleasant, in which case it is better to stop for a
few days. It is always best to consider what feels good
It is advisable to monitor and balance your pH, i.e. the
acid/alkaline condition of your body, espe-cially with
intensive application of urine therapy & fasting.Your
urine pH should ideally vary from approximately 5 (more
acid) to 8 (more alkaline) during the course of a day.
When there is a ten-dency to either overacidity (acidosis)
or overalkalinity (alkalosis), your body is not function-ing
Everything you eat and drink has an effect on your body
and consequently on your urine. The healthier your dietary
habits are, the better your urine will taste. Urine therapy
in itself does not perform mira-cles. Unless you provide
your body with the essen-tial nutrients, it will not possess
the raw materials needed to maintain good health. If you
eat healthly and consciously, your urine will contain many
essential nutrients which can be reused. Even so, the body
may have a deficiency of certain nutrients if they are
not supplemented by a complete range of foods. In the long
run, this may result in illnesses and ailments. The human
body is not made to digest and absorb the many harmful
additives to which we are nowa-days exposed. Chemical products
and radiation added to food products have been proven to
be harmful.The recommended range of foods consists of fresh
vegetables and fruit, whole grains, seeds, nuts, bean,
natural sweeteners such as honey, and a lim-ited use of
It is advisable to follow a vegetarian diet during intensive
application of urine therapy. This means that it is best
for you to refrain from eating all meat and dairy products,
or at least reduce this to a mini-mum, especially if you
practise the therapy for an extended period of time. This
also applies if you are fasting or if you drink several
glasses of urine per day. If you continue to eat meat,
you probably have a high concentration of nitro-gen wastes,
uric acids and other acidic substances in your urine, which
are not helpful when rein-gested in these large amounts.
A surplus of these substances in the blood can lead to
an abnormally high degree of acidity. The body consequently
acidi-fies, creating a breeding ground for illnesses. The
above mentioned substances in high concentrations cause
the urine to taste extremely unpleasant. If you wish to
keep eating meat, the best meat prod-ucts are fish and
fowl, free of hormones. Avoid foods containing refined
flour products, white sugar and white rice. These nutrients
also acidify the blood and body. Avoid processed & radiated
foods, and foods which contain colorings or flavorings.
Unfortunately, it is not easy to come by good, clean water.
Tap water is full of harmful substances, such as fluoride,
chlorine and aluminium. It is advisable, especially for
drinking & to use purified water from bottles or containers.
You can also purchase a good water filter. It is more difficult
to come by fresh air. You can, how-ever, go to a wooded
area or the beach for the exer-cise you need. Exercise
(in moderation) is important. It increases the heartbeat,
stimulates the circula-tion and strengthens the muscles.
It also deacidi-fies the blood. Most importantly, it should
form a part of your daily routine, and preferably a pleasur-able
The idea that urine is a poisonous waste product is not
based upon fact. It has been scientifically proven that,
besides water, urine consists mainly of minerals, hormones
and enzymes which are not harm-ful to the body. The body
can reuse many of these substances. Urine is simply a healthy
liquid which is filtered out of the bloodstream. What at
one moment was part of the blood can be found in urine
a split second later. Certain substances are then filtered
by the kidneys and secreted as raw materials, which can
be directly absorbed by the body upon renewed intake by
way of drinking or massaging. The kidneys filter hundreds
of litres of blood per day (approximately 1700 liters).
The greatest part of the filtered urine, the so-called
'pre-urine', is di-rectly reabsorbed into the blood. Excess
substances and the end products of nitrogen and protein
me-tabolism together with water form the one to two litres
of excreted urine-. The kidneys are not intended to remove
poison-ous substances from the body - the liver, intestines,
skin and exhalation take care of this. Obviously, the food
you consume finds its way into the blood, and therefore
into the urine, which is why it is im-portant to follow
a healthy diet.
Urine is a sort of infor-mation card which registers the
condition of the blood. When that information is carried
back to the body, the body can consequently react according
to this feedback; it will normally do this in an appropriate
and precise way. The body is an extremely advanced and
The intestines donot absorb all the substances we consume
and they are able to make a selection. To a certain extent,
they select what is useful to the body and excrete the
rest through defecation. Certain substances are converted
by the bacteria in the intestines into other substances
which the body can use or absorb better in that form..
You might ask if urea will not cause any poison-ing symptoms
when taken in again. Although urea is poisonous when present
in very large amounts in the blood, only relatively small
amounts of urea are ingested when you drink urine This
does not end up directly in the blood, but rather in the
intesti-nes, and primarily has a purify, cleansing effect.
The bulk of it does not show up as urea in the blood, but
is converted into the highly useful substance glutamine.
It is indisputable that the urine from ninety percent
of the population is almost entirely free of all bacteria
(sterile). Doctors and pathologists confirm this. This
is simply because urine does not come into contact with
anything until it is excreted, and furthermore contains
substance which kill bacte-ria. In the other ten percent,
micro-organisms can be found, which can be caused by a
latent illness or infection of the kidneys or urinary passages.
Drinking urine which contains a certain amount of micro-organisms
can nevertheless be considered harmless. We constantly
eat, drink and inhale bac-teria. A large number of bacteria
permanently exist in our body, and they generally do not
make us sick. Externally applied, urine is an excellent
antisep-tic remedy. Fresh urine is sterile & therefore
excellent for cleaning wounds. Old urine contains ammonia & other
substances which ensure that the infection & decay
Nature works in cycles, aflowing matter to re-turn to
its original substance and be reused for construction.
Many substances still floating through the blood in compounded
form are filtered by the kidneys and return to their original
substances. In this way they can easily be re-absorbed
by the body. Once again, I refer to the example of a tree
which lives off its fallen leaves. Nature possesses an
infal-lible capacity for recycling, of which urine therapy
is a remarkable, but sadly forgotten. I would again like
to point out that we have all experienced this urine cycle
as a fetus in the womb. For almost nine month, we drank
our own urine in the form of amniotic fluid. This liquid
was an important contribution to the development of our
bodies. Drinking urine is certainly not strange. It is
the foundation of our existence.
Rational thinking has completely suppressed many natural
human instincts. For example, all animals void eating if
they are sick. Many illnesses can be quickly cured in this
way, since digesting food requires a great deal of energy.
By not eating, we can direct much more energy towards the
recovery process. Human beings, however, often continue
eating when they are sick. On top of that, the patient
is often advised to eat especially well, even if he or
she is absolutely not hungry.
Urine therapy and healthy dietary habits go together.
As already mentioned, no substance which has not earlier
been consumed will appear in the urine. A change in dietary
habits as part of urine therapy undoubtedly plays an important
role in a possible healing process. Exclusively change
your dietary habits. Urine therapy also has an extraordinarily
positive effect if you fast exclusively on water and urine,
in which case you completely refrain from eating. The same
results are achieved with a urine and water fast in one
week as with a juice or water fast in two to three weeks.
The fact remains: the substances you eat, drink or otherwise
ingest are important, especially regarding long-term health.
Applying urine therapy while maintaining unhealthy dietary
habits is like lighting a candle to the sun.
The taste of urine partly depends on what you have eaten
and drunk the previous day. If you eat a great deal of
animal proteins, use a lot of spices or drink strong herbal
tea, your urine will probably have a strong taste. Also,
when your body is out of balance, i.e. if you are sick,
urine often tastes stronger than normal. While applying
urine therapy it is wise to reduce the intake of especially
animal proteins and strong herbs and spices. If you wish
to gradually become accustomed to the taste, mix urine
with water or fruit juice or mix a spoonful of honey into
the urine. The remedy, urine, is not lucrative. Urine is
free and always available for those who need it. In a world
which money talks, urine therapy can appear be threatening
to those who earn their living by manufactunng or prescribing
medicine. In short, urine therapy does not fit in the current
economic picture of scarcity. Many people believe we are
healthier nowadays thanks to advances in medical science.
This is partly true.The flip side of the coin is that we
have had to give up a great deal of freedom and independence.
The enormous efforts of medical science are partly based
upon the failure to really cure illnesses. Fighti-ng symptoms
is considered to be crucial, but this does not take care
of the cause. Urine therapy, being a real nature cure,
not only reduces the symp-tom, but also deals with the
cause of the illness. When you are convinced it works for
you, the reluctance to talk about it will gradually subside,
and maybe even disappear. Per-haps you will start to enjoy
talking about it, as I do. You can be sure that you will
be surrounded by plenty of laughter, which in fact can
be rather pleasant. The odor of urine is much less repulsive
than most people think since most associate urine with
public toilets. Actually, it often smells rather pleasant
when applied fresh on the skin. I myself regularly use
pure urine as aftershave and hair lotion.
The majority of useful, vital substances is found in the
morning urine. This is because at night, while you sleep,
your body is totally relaxed. This deep relaxation gives
the body the chance to carry out its recovery activities.
The decomposition products partly end up in the urine and
can be re-absorbed and used for new build-up processes.
This process of filtering by the kidneys returns the so-called
raw decomposition products to their original substances,
which can subsequently be absorbed and re-used by the body.
Certain hormones are also released during sleep, a number
of which are intended to bring about the above mentioned
deep relaxation. Reabsorbing these hormones ensures that
we are more rested during the waking hours. It saves the
body energy because it does not have to manufacture these
hormones again. Ingestion of the morning urine, which is
full of hormones, regulates the entire hormonal process.
These hormones have the particular function of maintaining
In theory, it is best to use exclusively your own urine,
especially if internally applied. However, if you are in
a state of shock and cannot urinate, the urine from somebody
else can safely be adminis-tered. If possible, use the
urine from somebody of the same sex. Different hormones
can be found in the urine from a male than in that of a
female. For certain illnesses, it seems to be beneficial
to ingest the urine from children. The urine from a child
is often very pure, especially if the child follows a healthy
diet. In some cases, the urine fron a child can also be
used in the external massage application for the seriously
ill who cannot produce enough of their own urine.
Urine from different people usually does not differ much
in its ingredlents, which is why the urine from one person
will also to some extent work for somebody else. However,
your own urine contains personal, characteristic substances
and provides the particular information the body needs
in order to carry out the healing process as effectively
In general, it is no problem to combine urine therapy
with any other form of natural treatment. This also applies
to the use of nutritional supplements as long as they are
natural. One should refrain from any chemically manufactured
supplements. Experience has shown that the use of vitamin
supplements in combination with the practise of urine therapy
can considerably cut down the amount of supplements you
need to take, because of the recycling effect. Many substances,
such as vitamins and enzymes, act as carriers for other.
Urine therapy can also be seen as a form of self--vaccination:
certain bodily substances which have been removed from
the body, some of which may have been produced as a result
of illness, are rein-troduced into the body in small amounts.
These substances are reabsorbed into the blood through
either the intestines or the skin. According to this hypothesis,
the immune system is then given the chance to react appropriately.
In the early nineteenth century, Dr. Charles Duncan conducted
research into therapies with self-produced substances,
including urine therapy. He demonstrated that patients
suffering from gonorrhoeic urethritis (infection of the
urinary tube as a result of the venereal disease gonorrhoea)
produce their own meditation in the form of their own discharge.
Auto-therapy was applied here by placing a drop of a patient's
discharge directly on the tongue, in order to stimulate
the body's natural powers. This method had a strong healing
effect at every stage of the illness: if applied at an
early stage, it could cause the gonorrhoea to disappear.
Auto-therapy is based on the principle that the body can
use all fresh, self-produced, unaltered dis-eased tissue
substances which originate from the micro-organisms causing
the illness. Seen in this light, patients have their own
medication in exactly the form constructed by natute to

Ten effects of Urine Therapy: Reabsorption and
reuse of nutrients, Reabsorption of hormones, Reabsorption
of enzymes, Reabsorption of urea, Immunological effect,
Bactericidal and virucidal effect, Salt therapy, Diuretic
effect, Transmutation theory, Psychological effect.
The filtering process in kidneys should break down this
tissue to its original materials, after which it can be
reused by the body to build in new tissue. Reabsorption
can be a means for the body to generally conserve energy:
reingestion of hormones gives the body the chance to reuse
at least a number of these, so that it is not necessary
to expend energy on manufacturing new hormones. Hormones
are actually extremely powerful mol-ecules, the production
of which requires a great deal of energy. Once produced,
they are able to cause a complete alteration in the balance
of bodily proc-esses, the personality, the emotions and
the state, of mind, even if only a few molecules are released.
So even the slightest re-absorption of hormones may well
have a powerful effect on our state of health and level
I have already referred to research on the effects of
melatonin, a hormone found in urine which possibly has
a calming effect. Melatonin also has a powerful anti-cancer
effect. Some people recommend to use the first urine after
sexual intercourse. During the process of sexual stimulation
certain hormones are released in the higher endocrinal
glands which have a regenerat-ing effect on the body for
men as well as women.
On research conducted on the enzyme Urokinase, positive
results can be expected from the effects of enzymes in
urine as a total entity. Urokinase causes vasodilation
and resembles nitroglycerine in its ability to strengthen
the bloodstream from the coronary artery to the cardiac
muscle. Urokinase is extracted from urine and brought on
the market as medicine on a large scale.
Besides water, urea is the main component of urine and
is a decomposition product of converted proteins. A person
excretes approximately an average of 25 to 30 grams of
urea per day. We come in contact with urea at an early
age, as a fetus in the womb. The level of urea in amniotic
fluid, which consists for the most part of urine from the
fetus doubles in the last two months of pregnancy. Before
we are born, we drink well over half a litre per day of
this liquid. The fetus also breathes it in; this is essential
for proper development of the lungs. Scars disappear after
an operation on a foetus in the womb due to the healing
capacities of the urea in the amniotic fluid.
Bacteria are not yet active in the intestinal canal. Once
we are born, the intestinal flora start to work, which
have a special role in the conversion of urea. Scientists
estimate that 25% of the urea in an adult finds its way
into the intestines, where it is decomposed into ammonia
by intestinal bacte-ria. The body reuses a certain part
of urea; the extra supply created by applying urine therapy
increases the glutamine level in the body. This consequently
strengthens the immune system and specialised organs, and
at the same time heals damages to the digestive tract.
Urea has the capacity to moisten the skin and regulate
its condition one of the reasons why it is processed in
many skin creams. Some pharmaceu-tical companies use horse
urine for the production of urea and they actually have
lots of horses in their factory.
Early urine is not toxic, although some toxic substances
might be present in urine in small amounts, especially
if one is ill. This small amount of toxic substances possibly
contributes to the effectiveness of urine therapy. If toxic
substances enter the body, body's defence mechanisms are
called into action (the immune system). If substances which
leave the body via the urine are the same as those involved
in the illness process, they can stimu-late the defence
system to attack and in this way fight the illness. This
might explain why urine therapy has proven so helpful in
treating allergies. The practise of drinking and massaging
with urine allows antibodies greater ac-cess to the body,
which stimulates the immune system. Applying urine to a
fresh cut or scrape prevents infection and keeps flies
away (important in coun-tries with a warm climate). Urine
compresses from fresh or old urine help to combat infections
and often cause them to disappear. Although urine does
not entirely prevent the growth of bacteria in the urethra
(infections often arise), it clearly has a pow-erful antiseptic
effect when externally applied.
Salt solutions remove old mucous embedded in the mucous
membranes. If one drinks a salt liquid, part of the sait
goes into the body, where it dis-solves the surplus of
mucus in the lungs and in other organs. As a salt liquid,
urine also has a laxative effect and is recommended to
relieve constipation. As it moves through the intestinal
canal, the salt detaches waste and draws water into the
intestines, as a result of which bowel movement becomes
easier. According to this theory, drinking urine, like
drinking salt Water, accelerates the metabolism. It removes
a surplus of sugar from the blood and draws out toxic substances
from cells. In this way, urine therapy is a good cleansing
technique. Using urine instead of salt is also more effective
because urea and ammonia are organic solvents: they dissolve
fats and other natural bodily secre-tions. These substances
probably ensure that the cous membranes and body cells
are powerfully affected.
By ingesting urine, one stimulates the body not only to
excrete part of these metabolic products at an accelerated
rate, but also to convert another part into useful substances.
A previously mentioned example of this is urea, which is
converted through ammonia into glutamine.
The theory of transmutation implies that the body is capable,
through energetic exchange within the body itself, to transmute
certain substances or molecules into other ones. Short-circuiting
the system by ingesting one's own secreted body fluids
might stimulate the transmutational forces within and challenge
the body to transform unusable sub-stances into usable
ones without being constantly disturbed by new external
input. This would spe-cifically apply to fasting on urine.
Another important aspect is the theory of struc-tured water.
The body consists for the biggest part of water and so
does urine. Not all water is the same though. The molecular
structure of water can be less or more organized and in
the latter case one speaks of structured water. The more
it is organ-ized, the better all kind of enzymatic processes
can do their job. These enzymatic processes, in their turn,
are responsible and necessary for the diges-tion, absorption
and transmutation of all nutri-ents. Urine is thus a crystalline-like
substance containing a high amount of structured water.
This structured water, when taken in again, promotes better
enzymatic functioning and it has a higher solubility for
minerals. A higher amount of struc-tured water in the body
system is correlated with better health and more energy.
The fact that urine is a liquid crystal substance, particularly
because of the various salts in it, im-plies that it contains
crystalline vibrations com-pletely in tune with the vibrational
condition of the body. Reingestion might give the body
valu-able vibrational information. Healthy vibrations will
strengthen the already cx-isting, healthy body resonance.
Diseased or stress-vibrations will counteract any unhealthy
resonance in tbe body. It is known that disturbing sounds
of any sort can be counteracted best by confronting it
with the same sounds. The vibratory patterns of the body,
both in the bones (solid crystals) and in the tissues and
fluids (liquid crystals), play an important role in the
process of transmutation. The resonance field of a crystal
can make a protein, for example, change its form into one
that is more useful for the body, or easier adaptable by
Applying your own bodily substances in an attempt to heal
can lead to a considerably broadened outlook on the intelligence
and power of the body, and can increase your ap-preciation
and love for yourself as a physical and spiritual being.
Instead of regarding excretions (re-ally just a part of
yourself) as enemies, you regard them as your helpers.
This healthier way of seeing yourself might well have a
powerful healing effect on your body. Urine therapy confronts
us with a very concrete 'healer within' which works both
on a mechanistic and on an energetic level. The latter
implies that urine, as a holographic substance, can affect
all lev-els of being, from the physical, through the electro-magnetic
fields of the emotions and the mind, up to the subtler
genetic vibrational information of the soul.
1. Collect Midstream Urine in a Clean Cup or Container
A dean glass or clear plastic container is best for collecting
the urine. In the research studies, urine is usually collected
by means of a "clean catch" in which the genital
area is cleansed before collecting the urine. This is important
for women in particular when using urine therapy internally
and can be done by simply washing with a little soap and
water. Collect the midstream urine only. You can take along
pre-packaged clean catch kits which include a sterile cup
and antiseptic paper towelettes for convenience during
travel or whenever unsanitary living conditions or contaminated
water are a problem.
2. Always Use Fresh Urine Immediately Upon Collection
Urine breaks down quickly outside the body so use it internally
as soon as you collect it. If you are going to use it for
external use only, this isn't as important, as you can
use either fresh or old urine for most external applications.
3. Begin With Oral Drops Then Increase Dosage
Once you've read the book and are ready to begin using
Start by taking a only few drops each day in order to
let your body adjust gradually.
Fill a clean medicine dropper from the cup of urine and
place one or two drops under your tongue. This method lets
you get used to the taste slowly and will still give you
health benefits. You. can slowly increase and adjust the
amount later when you've determined what amount is right
for your condition.
1. Start by taking 1-5 drops of morning urine on the first
2. The second day, take 5-10 drops in the morning.
3. Third day, take 5-10 drops m the morning, and the same
amount in the evening before you go to bed.
4. Once you feel accustomed to the therapy, gradually
increase the amount as needed for obtaining results for
your condition. As you use the therapy, you will learn
to adjust the amount you need by observing your reactions
to the therapy. More information on dosage is given further
on in this chapter.
4. Do Not Boil Or Dilute The Urine
Research studies show that boiling urine destroys many
oi its medicinal properties, so when taking it internally,
use it only in its fresh, natural form. Research studies
have also shown that diluting urine (or urea) decreases
its antibacterial activity, so rather than diluting it
in juice or water to get accustomed to using it.
5. Homeopathic Urine
The importance of using urine collected at the beginning
or height of acute symptoms of illness, particularly infections
and allergies, has been suggested by some researchers,
because this urine contains the greatest amount of antibodies
and immune-defense agents with which the body is already
fighting the illness. A homeopathic preparation preserves
this potent first-stage-illness urine and can then be used
throughout the duration of the illness. Homeopathic urine
is also excellent for children. For those of you with extreme
sensitivity or toxicity, who may feel that you are getting
too strong a reaction to the urine initially, try using
it as a homeopathic dilution.
6. Monitor And Balance Your Ph
pH refers to the acid/alkaline condition of the body.
The body is normally mildly acidic, and maintaining the
proper pH is crucial in urine therapy. pH values naturally
change throughout the day. Morning urine is generally more
acidic than mid-day urine, and pH also changes in response
to diet - in general, foods like meats, coffee, alco- hol,
milk, eggs and beans make the body more acidic while most
fruits and vegetables have an. alkaline effect. (See Appendix
for a more complete listing of add/alkaline foods). It's
always good to keep an eye on both your urine and saliva
pH levels, because both should present a proper acid/alkaline
balance. The ideal pH range of saliva is about 6.4 - 7.2,
(below 6.4 is too acidic, above 72. \s too alkaline). Saliva
usually becomes more alkaline after eating and with a vegetarian
diet. Urine pH should ideally vary from approximately 5.0
(acid in the morning) to 8.0 (alkaline at night) during
each 24-hour period. If your urine or saliva pH levels
are consistently out of range for a long period, of time,
it means that your body is not functioning correctly or
that your diet is consistently too add or too alkaline.
pH measuring strips with numerical values are commercially
available for testing your acid/alkaline levels and make
it simple to regularly monitor your pH at home, (or see
order form on last page). The tendency to overacidity is
called acidosis which can be caused by such things as kidney,
liver or adrenal disorders, improper diet, starvation,
anger, stress, fear, fever or excess vitamin C, aspirin
or niacin. Symptoms may include insomnia, water retention,
migraine headaches, frequent sighing, abnormally low blood
pressure, dry hard stools, alternating constipation and
dianhea, sensitivity of the teeth, difficulty swallowing
and recessed eyes. Alkalosis (when the body is too alkaline)
can be caused by such things as excessive use of antacids
or by poor diet, excessive vomiting (bulimia), endocrine
imbalances, high cholesterol, osteo-arthritis, or diarrhea.
Symptoms may include drowsiness, protruding eyes, creaking
joints, sore muscles, bursitis, edema, night coughs, menstrual
problems, allergies, night cramps, chronic indigestion,
or asthma. The first and easiest methods that you can use
to correct pH are to increase relaxation, rest, fresh air,
and exercise, decrease stress and make dietary adjustments.
If you're too acid, decrease acid foods in your diet and
eat more alkaline foods; if you're too alkaline, decrease
alkaline foods and eat more acid foods. (For a list of
acid or alkaline foods see the Appendix at the back of
It's extremely important to monitor your pH levels during
urine therapy because if your urine is too alkaline, it
may decrease its antibacterial activity. On the other hand,
if the urine is consistently excessively acidic, urine
therapy could create too much of an acid burden in your
body. In this case, make certain that your diet is primarily
alkaline-promoting foods, so that you are balancing your
pH and not adding to your body's acid burden through ingesting
extremely acidic urine. Also, if you have a severe chronic
problem with acidosis (this is often tine of diabetics),
use only a few drops of urine at a time, or substitute
a homeopathic urine preparation. Test your urine pH once
or twice each day for a few days when using urine therapy
for the first time or when using it intensively. Do not
ingest the same urine that you dip the pH strip into for
testing. If you are taking only a small mamtenance dose
per day, test pH once every three to five days in order
to determine whether dietary adjustments are needed. If
you find that your urine pH is very acid, add a pinch of
baking soda to the urine you'll be ingesting to reduce
7. Do not use urine therapy if you are pregnant
without a doctor's supervision:
Although pregnant women have been treated with successfully
urine therapy for morning sicimess or edema, the therapy
should not be used during pregnancy without the supervision
of a doctor familiar with the medical use of urine. Doctors
have reported that they have used urine therapy for morning
sickness in pregnancy with excellent results, but there
are reports of two spontaneous abortions which occurred
after urine therapy treatments (Dunne and Plesch), possibly
because of the natural release of toxins which occur with
Fertility: On the other hand, if you're
trying to get pregnant, several successful fertility drugs
such as Pergonai are made from urine extracts and a few
women have reported to me that they feel urine therapy
helped them to conceive. The best and safest method in
this case is to use urine therapy for a certain time period
(six months) before trying to conceive and to discontinue
its use during the days that you're attempting to conceive.
You can use urine diagnostic tests to determine when you're
ovulating and when you've conceived, and you can gear your
use of urine accordingly.
Urine Therapy and Drugs: In the past I have recommended
that you do not use urine therapy if you are taking any
type of drugs or are a heavy smoker, alcohol user or coffee
drinker. However, new research has come to my attention
that shows that urine therapy can be beneficial under all
of these conditions. Dr. William Hitt, an American doctor
who actually has urine therapy clinics in Mexico, has reported
to me that he has treated 20,000 patients in a 2 ? year
period with urine therapy injections. These patients include
those with cancer, asthma and other diseases and also patients
with severe alcoholism, drug and smoking addictions. Dr.
Hitt reports startling success with no side effects in
using urine infections for addictive disorders and also
in combination with pre-scription. drugs. The amount of
drugs or contaminants passed into urine is so infinitesimal
that they pose no threat and, in fact, appear to act as
vaccine-type agents which improve or cure these types of
disorders. This is also supported by the book Urinalysis
in Clinical Laboratory Practice from Miles Laboratories,
in which the authors state that even in a case of severe
mercury poisoning, the actual amount of mercury passed
into the urine is infinitesimal. When these types of conditions
are present, start on 1-5 drops orally per day for 3-5
days in order to avoid heavy detoxificatiorL Increase the
drops by one or two each day according to how well you're
tolerating the therapy, gradually increase the amount as
needed to obtain results for your individual condition.
8. Improve Your Diet & Avoid Meat When Using
Urine Therapy Intensively Before Fasting
In general, your diet should consist of balanced amounts
oi whole grains, fresh vegetables and small amounts of
lean meats and fish. If you are eating large amounts of
refined foods, sugar, soda, coffee, etc. you will not get
the full benefits of urine therapy and, depending on how
poor your diet is, you may experience unpleasant symptoms
of headache, nausea, etc., as your body regulates and expels
undesirable elements. If you're only using a few oral drops
of urine or ingesting one or two ounces once a day, your
meat intake can remain normal as long as your usual intake
is moderate. As studies on urea and the kidney have shown
(Dr. C. Giordano), urea helps your body break down proteins
more efficiently,, which may mean that when using urine
therapy, you can get the increased benefits of protein
intake even. though you are eat-ing less meat and other
sources of protein. This information will probably also
be of value to vegetarians who rely on mach less concentrated
protein sources in their foods than regular meat eaters.
Decrease or elinrunate meat in your diet while ingesting
large amounts of urine or preparing for a fast, as combining
intensive urine therapy and high meat intake may lead to
excess add levels in the body.
9. Detoxifying Symptoms
When you first begin urine therapy, you may initially
experience symptoms such as headache, nausea, diarrhea,
tiredness, or skin rashes. In many of the research studies
in Chapter 4, the doctors often observed such symptoms
in their patients, which are the body's natural responses
as stored toxins from illness and disorders are excreted
and removed from the body. These symptoms normally disappear
within 24 to 36 hours. Also, by starting your therapy with
a few oral drops, you may avoid or lessen the severity
of detoxificadon. If you. have begun your therapy with
larger amounts, and are experiencing unpleasant symptoms,
decrease the amount you are ingesting and continue with
smaller doses. Homeopathic remedies and simple herbs can
also be used and are often of great help during detoxificarion
to relieve headache, nausea, diarrhea, etc.
Several research studies, such as those done by Drs. Krebs,
Piesch, Duncan, Lewis and Dunne, deal specifically with
the treatment of children with urme therapy. The easiest
internal form of the therapy for children is oral drops
of the child's own freSh urine. As mentioned in the studies,
for acute flu, colds, viral infections, measles, mumps,
chicken pox, etc., small frequent oral doses of 1-10 drops
during illness have been shown to be very effective. For
allergies, the research studies indicate that several drops
of fresh urine should be given orally before and after
meals containing aller- genic foods, or when allergic symptoms
are present. Drs. Dunne and Lewis give very specific, simple
instructions for using urine therapy for treating allergies
in children which are included in their reports. Another
very effective method recommended by Dr. Dunne is to prepare
a homeopathic dilution of the child's urine for use throughout
the illness or allergy attack. Collect urine at the onset
of symptoms and prepare according to the instructions given
in the section Homeopathy and Urine Therapy. Research studies
also indicate that symptoms of illness may temporarily
increase immediately following the first few doses of urine
therapy, but, in all cases, these symptoms dissipated within
24 - 48 hours. For ear infections, fresh, warm urine drops
in the affected ear can give excellent and often instantaneous
results. Repeat as needed.
A daily mamtenance dose is usually considered by those
who use urine therapy regularly to be one to two ounces
of morning midstream urine. but this dose may also be as
little as 5-10 drops per day, or every other day, depending
on your individual condition and needs. 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 main-taining energy levels, reducing aging and
in preventing illness.
Severe, Acute And Chronic Illnesses
For those with chronic or severe illnesses such as cancer,
some urine therapy users such as John Armstrong strongly
recommend ingesting as much urine as you pass or as much
as possible during the day for several days, however, much
smaller doses have also been reported to be effective.
If you are ingesting large amounts, fasting or sharply
decreasing your solid food intake during this time reduces
the burden on the .kidneys and allows the body to use more
energy for healing, rather than digestion. It would be
extremely unadvisable for most people to undertake the
kind of prolonged urine fast that John Armstrong suggests,
and short urine and water fasts of one to three days can
be very effective. Stop ingestion shortly before bed at
night so that the body can rest, and resume when you awake
in the morning. If you do not want to fast, but feel that
you need to ingest larger amounts of urine, eat small,
simple, light meals, preferably, fresh home-made unseasoned
vegetable soups. If you leci you need a grain, use plain
millet or rice, or whole grain, salt-free crackers. There
is more information on fasting. Long-standing, difficult
conditions naturally may require a longer period of treatment.
What I discovered in my own treatment was that I needed
to ingest a large amount initially (about 2 ounces 4-5
times/day) every day, for about two weeks, at which point,
I switched to small frequent doses (one to two ounces)
three to four times a day for another two weeks and then
tapered off to 1-2 ounces twice a day, then every other
day, etc. The maintenance dose is 5-10 drops per day. This
was my approach, but you may find that your individual
require-ments or more or less than these amounts. If you
are suffering from an acute illness such as an infection,
the traditional treatment is to fast completely or to eat
only light meals such as homemade, unseasoned vegetable
broth while ingesting frequent doses of urine for at least
one day, or until you feel that your improvement is complete
and stable. I have found, as have many others, that eating
heavily too soon after recovering from a viral or bacterial
infection may produce a relapse, so make sure that you're
feeling stable before starting to eat normally again. Always
break your fast by slowly reintroducing light foods, homemade
fresh vegetable soups, then crackers, grains, etc.
Rest, Rest, Rest
Once you have healed .a serious illness and achieved improved
health, continue the practice of a daily maintenance dose
of urine therapy and a good diet. Also, never allow yourself
to become consistently exhausted or overtired. Consistent
proper rest is much more crucial to health than most people
realize. And once you have recovered fit>m a majorillness,
you must be extremely vigilant in getting abundant rest
and relaxation. I have seen many instances in which people
completely cure them-selves of even 'incurable' diseases
through urine therapy and natural healing and remain well
far a number of years, only to completely undo all the
good they've accomplished by over-confidently pushing themselves
to extremes in their work or recreation. One of the saddest
examples of this error that I know of was the case of a
young, bright, determined AIDS patient who had completely
cured himself of all visible and clinical evidence of the
disease, but subse-quently consistently and relentlessly
overworked at his demanding corporate job. Eventually,
he fell ill, relapsed and was not able to recover. However,
in another case, a person who had recovered from a seriousillness
experienced a relapse from overexertion, but complete rest
and intense urine therapy led to an excellent recovery.
But why put your-self through that ordeal and risk the
chance of seriously undermining your body's hard-won repair
Assiduous urine therapy can give you such renewed vigor
and energy, that it's easy to become overconfident and
overdo, which, is not a huge problem for normal people.
But for people recovering from major illnesses, exhaustion
can pose a life-long threat, so protect your new-found
health and your natural immune defenses with lots of rest,
fresh air, moderate exercise and minimized stress.
If you have a history or presence of a kidney infection,
limit the initial amount of oral urine therapy you take
to small doses such as 1-5 drops once or twice a day, or
use a homeopathic dilution as described in the section
on. Homeopathy and Urine Therapy in this chapter. Decrease
or eliminate meat ingestion. and acid-forming foods before
beginning the therapy. Also, check your acidity levels
with pH strips, and begin urine therapy when your acid
levels have normalized or decreased substantially.
In the clinical research studies done on urine therapy
and allergies, practitioners such as Dunne and Wilson used
oral drops with excellent' results. Refer to these studies
for directions and again, begin with one or two drops and
then gradually increase the number of drops, or as Wilson
suggests, take the drops until you can no longer sense
the urine taste or temperature. If you know what your allergies
are, take the drops before eating a food that you're allergic
to; if you don't know what you're allergic to, take several
drops of fresh urine immediately upon the appearance of
symptoms, and repeat this method each time the symptoms
reoccur. Homeopathic urine preparations, as described by
Dr. Dunne, are also excellent for allergies, as you can
preserve the urine collected at the height of allergy symptoms
for long term treatment of the allergy. See the section
on preparing homeopathic urine.
Several of the research studies show that urea is a proven
anti-bacterial agent (Drs. Schlegel, Kaye, Weinstein etc.),
and urine has been found to contain antibodies to food
contaminants such as salmonella bacteria in infected individuals
(Lemer and Remington). Begin by taking 1-5 drops. Increase
dosage as tolerated.
Fasting on urine is an excellent therapy that can produce
extraordinary results, especially for intractable diseases
and tough chronic conditions, but always work into a fast
slowly. Begin with oral drops for two to three weeks, increase
your dosage to 1-3 ounces during the next two or three
weeks, and begin fasting the following week. Eliminate
all meat intake at least three days before the fast. When
I first started urine therapy, I was so seriously ill with
so many different conditions and in such extreme pain,
that I rushed into aweek-long fast on urine and water alone.
But I don't recommend this approach because I've found
that it isn't necessary to rush into the ther-apy in order
to get good "results. Pushing your body too quickly
can produce often severe detoxifying symptoms such as headaches,
fever, nausea, depression, or fatigue that you can lessen
or avoid by. Simply adjusting to the therapy gradually
with a few oral drops each day. During the fast, ingest
as much urine as you pass during the day until it becomes
completely dear; stop ingesting for a few hours and then
resume. Decrease or stop your intake at night and begin
again when you awake in the morning. Alternate urine intake
with small sips of cool water or ice-chips if desired.
Drink as much water as you feel thirsty for, and stay well-hydrated
at all times, but do not force-drink large quantities of
water; as research shows (Kaye and Schlegel), this can
dilute the urine, and decrease the urea's anti-bacterial
action. Force-drinking water, in addition to urine ingestion,
may also stress the kidneys. Combine urine fasting with
urine skin massages, particularly on the face, neck and
feet. John Armstrong insisted on this method because he
felt that it gave extra nourishment to the body while fasting
and eliminated possible headaches and nausea. The rubs
are also refreshing and make the skin dear and soft. When
breaking the fast, start by eating a simple homemade fresh
vegetable soup broth such as one made of fresh kale, carrots,
fresh green leeks, scallion tops and a little fresh ginger.
Do not add salt or seasonings. Eat only the broth for a
day or two, the broth and vegetable the next day, and begin
gradually adding in more vegetables and carbohy-drates
such as rice and millet over the next few days. Short periods
of fasting (1-3 days) can be an extremely effective method
for cleansing and healing the body; long fasts should always
be under-taken with caution and supervision.
Homeopathy and Urine Therapy
In the course of using urine therapy, I found that combining
the therapy with homeopathic medicines in particular can
produce incredible results, even for the toughest, most
stubborn chronic conditions. Severely weakened, debilitated,
chronically ill individuals often develop extreme sensitivities
to ordinarily helpful herbal, vitamin, mineral and other
medicinal preparations, but are able to tolerate homeopathic
medidnes very well. Homeopathic medicines are simply extremely
diluted natural sub-stances such as plants, minerals, etc.
that gently stimulate a healing reaction in the body. A
homeopathic medicine is prepared by diluting a minute amount
of a particular natural substance with water; the dilution
is shaken several tunes and then alcohol may be added to
the solution as a preservative. You can take the homeopathic
medicine in its liquid form, or as a small sucrose pill
which has been saturated with the liquid.
Dr. Nancy Dunne, the allergy researcher, reported that
her colleague, Dr. Fife, used urine in the form of a homeopathic
dilution with excellent results. Homeopathic urine is excellent
for children and may be helpful to those with extreme sensitivities.
It also provides a means of preserving urine collected
during the first stages or the onset of illness, at,which
time the urinary antibodies and iinmune defense agents
are most reported to be most numerous and active. Pre-prepared
homeopathic urea can also be purchased, although this would
contain only urea and none of the antibodies or immune
factors of a whole urine homeopathic preparation. The traditional
book for selecting and using homeopathic medicines is referred
to as the Materia Medica, which contains a listing of the
remedies and Lndications for their use. These lists are
referred to as Repertories, such as Boericke's Repertcay
and Kent's Repertory. These books are actuallymvery enjoyable
to learn to use, and the Boerickc's Repertory in particular
can guide you to very specific, effective remedies for
virtually every disorder.
Dr. Dunne reported that the following procedi.ire for
preparing a homeopathic dose oi urme was used by Dr. Fife,
and had produced remarkable healing:
1. To 5 mis (1/6 of an ounce) of distilled water in a
sterile bottle add one drop of fresh urine.
2. Cap the bottle and shake vigorously 50 times (this
is the first dilution).
3. Take one drop of this mix and add to another 5 mis
(1/6 oz.) of distilled water; shake 50 times.
4. Take one drop of this mix and add to 5 mis (1/6 oz.)
of 80 to 90 proof vodka which acts as a preservative.
5. Place three drops under the tongue hourly until there
is obvious improvement or temporary exacerbation of symptoms.
As improvement progresses, lengthen the interval between
treatments. After 3 days, suspend treatment to avoid pushing
the immune system. Treatment is resumed if progress remains
static or relapse occurs.
For beginners who feel unsure about how to use homeopathy,
the best book I have found as an overall introduction to
self-care through home-opathy is The Fanfily Guide to Homeopathy,
Symptoms and Natural Solutions, by Dr. Andrew Lockje. This
is a tremendously comprehensive self-help guide which introduces
the fundamentals of how the body functions, how and why
specific illnesses and disorders are contracted, and what
homeopathic remedies will best augment the body's natural
healing. This book is an extraordinary adjunct to urine
therapy and contains helpful material about a wide range
of disorders that I have never found anywhere else. When
using homeopathy, you have a choice of two different dilutions
referred to as "x " potencies or "c " potencies.
The "x" potencies are sold commercially in health
food stores, etc. I have found that the c potencies are
excellent for home use, as their effect seems more pronounced
than the commercial preparations; many homeopathic doctors
also prefer the potencies. Homeopathic medicines are safe
and produce no side effects. These medicines are considered
to be FDA approved, because they were widely used in the
U.S. earlier in the century and so were "grandfathered" in
to the FDA list of approved medical treatments; some home-opathic
remedies are sold in health food stores or can be obtained
froin a homeopathic doctor or catalog. Combining homeopathy
with urine therapy was, for me, incredibly effective for
a wide variety of serious disorders as well as for mild
disorders such as headaches, colds, indigestion, etc. For
more information on using homeopathy with urine therapy,
you can also refer to the book I've written Healing Yourself
External Uses of Urine Therapy
Applying urine to the skin is an excellent treatment for
every imaginable type of skin disorder including all rashes,
eczema, psoriasis, acne, etc. The urea in urine, as the
research studies demonstrated, is also excellent for cosmetic
use as an overall skin beautifier and moisturizer.
1. Use either fresh or old urine for skin applications,
although old urine has a higher ammonia content and has
been found to be more effective in treating many stubborn
skin disorders such as eczema or psoriasis.
2. When treating skin disorders such as eczema, psoriasis,
rashes, etc. pour a small amount of urine onto a cotton
ball or pad and pat or massage it lightly onto the affected
area, making sure that the area is well saturated.
3. Discard the pad and saturate another clean pad with
fresh urine and reapply, lightly patting and soaking the
affected area. Continue reapplying in this manner for 5-10
minutes or as many times as desired - the more that the
affected area is treated, the better.
4. Secure a clean soaked pad to the affected area with
a gauze or cotton ~vrap and leave secured for several hours
for additional healing. These urine packs are also incredibly
effective for any type of insect sting, bite or poison
oak or ivy. (See Urine Packs and Compresses).
5. Another method is to pour old or fresh urine into clean,
plastic spray bottle and spray the rash, eczema, etc.
Always augment your use of oral urine therapy with skin
massages particuJariy on the face, neck and feet John Armstrong
recommended this practice especially when fasting for an
acute condition, and people who use it, swear by it. These
massages have a tonifying, refreshing, relaxing effect
and are said to allow for gradual absorption of urine nutrients
through the skin. Pour either old or fresh urine into a
wide, shallow container and dip your hands into the liquid.
Shake off excess, then vigorously massage into a small
area of skin anywhere on the body until hands and skin
are dry. Rewet hands and begin massaging another area until
dry; repeat this step until all skin areas have been well
massaged. Rinse with warm water. Do not attempt these massages
on extremely elderly or infirm individuals. Also, make
certain that you use normal urine for massages. If your
own urine is dark, turbid or abnormal looking, wait until
you have used the urine internally over the course of two
or three days, at which time the urine usually appears
clear and can then be used for massages. Urine from a normal
healthy person other than yourself may also be used for
your external massage. If you are a heavy smoker, or are
taking therapeutic or recreational drugs, do not use your
own urine externally or internally (or use only extremely
1. For cosmetic use or moisturizing, pour a very small
amount of nor mal fresh urine or urme which has been stored,
for a day or two into your hand and massage lightly into
the skin until dry; then pour additional urine into your
hand, massage it into another area of the skin until dry
and so on.
2. Rinse well with warm water when completed, but wash
without soap. Your skin is naturally slightly addic, and
this natural aridity is usually destroyed by soaps which
are all alkaline and diminish the skin's natural protective
3. You can apply a moLsturizer after the massage, but
make sure that it's a simple, natural one that doesn't
contain lot of drying alcohol or other chemicals. Also,
you can add a few drops of urine to a small amount of your
moisturizing cream each time you apply the cream.
As the research studies show, urea replenishes the water
content of the skin because it binds hydrogen and attracts
moisture to the skin in a way that no mineral oil or glycerin-based
lotions or creams can.
You 'll be absolutely amazed at the softness and beauty
of your skin after even one treatment with a urine massage.
Old dead skin immediately flakes away, and your skin becomes
wonderfully soft, rosy and with time, even wrinkles will
disappear. Urine massages have also been reported to eliminate
varicose veins and cysts.
URINE PACKS AND COMPRESSES
Urine packs give added healing to skin disorders such
as eczema, psoriasis, athlete's foot, ringworm, poison
ivy and oak, etc. in addition to urine massages and soaks;
1. Soak gauze bandages or cotton balls m fresh or old
urine and place them over the affected areas.
2. Cover the urine pack with light plastic (like Saran-wrap)
and tie in place with gauze strips.
3. Try to keep the pack on as long as possible, especially
with more, severe conditions. Add additional urine to the
pack with a medicine dropper every few hours to keep the
Bites And Stings
Urine packs are tremendously useful and effective for
relieving the discomfort of all insect bites and stings.
When I first moved to Arizona, I was stung on the foot
by a scorpion. My foot immediately swelled to almost double
its size and was unbelievably painhil. I dragged myself
into the house, applied a soaked urine pack and tied it
in place. Within 15 minutes, the pain had disap-peared
and the swelling had lessened considerably. I kept the
pack on overnight, and when I removed it in the morning,
the swelling and redness had completely disappeared. The
pain and irritation of bee stings and mosquito bites is
also wonderfully relieved by this method.
Urine packs should also be used immediately for poisonous
snake bites. Follow emergency first-aid instructions to
inrise the wound and remove venom, if possible. Then apply
fresh normal urine to the wound and secure a well-soaked
urine pack over it. Keep pack wet until medical help can
Growths And Tumors
Armstrong reported in great length on the remarkable effects
of urine compresses in reducing and eradicating a wide
variety of internal and external tumors, cysts and abnormal
1. Compresses should be used in combination with internal
urine therapy for treating any type of abnormal growth.
2. In preparing a compress, use a thick pad of clean white
folded cotton material (such as an old T-shirt).
3. Soak the pad in a container of fresh or old urine.
Warm the urine by pouring it into a glass container, then
place the jar in a container of hot water. While lying
down, place wet compress over the affected area and cover
with a clean folded towel. Keep the compress applied for
as long as possible, reapplying warm urine as needed to
keep the compress wet. Urine compresses have also been
reported to be effective for many internal disturbances
and for arthritic and rheumatic pains.
Wounds, Burns And Abrasions
As so many research and clinical studies have shown, urea
is a tremen-dously effective anti-bacterial agent and an
excellent healing treatment for wounds and burns of all
types. Use fresh, normal urine for treating open wounds.
1. Saturate a thick gauze bandage or cotton pad with fresh
urine, place it over the wound or bum and secure it with
additional gauze; cover with plastic or soft towel to prevent
2. Reapply fresh urine with clean medidne dropper directly
onto the existing inside compress. Reapply fresh compress
as often as possible. Urine is also known to prevent scarring,
so keep the urine pack applied as long or as often as possible
until healing is complete. Many people have applied urine
compresses to burns and cuts with amazing results. The
pain is quickly relieved and the burn or wound heals rapidly
Eye And Nose Drops
There are reports from people who have used urme drops
for both eye and nose drops, for relief of eye itching
or inflammation, or for nasal congestion. In both cases,
make certain that you are using fresh, clear, normal urine
only and that the acidity factor of the urine is normal
(see previous section on Monitoring Your pH in this chapter).
Also, make certain that the eye dropper you use for the
eye drops is sterilized. A compress of fresh normal urine
is also excellent for external eye inflammations such as
1. Can my doctor administer urea, as the researchers
in the studies did?
The urine extract, urea, is FDA approved and can be administered
by your doctor. A Physician's Guide to Your Own Perfect
Medicine is available if your doctors would like additional
information contained in the research studies on the clinical
application of urea. As the research studies indicate,
oral or injected urea has been shown to be extremely effective
and safe in treating cases where excess fluid production
is a problem (see pgs. 99-103). Urea's anti-bacterial,
anti-viral and diuretic properties. Using urea in conjunction
with natural urine therapy can be discussed with your doctor,
once he or she has been made aware of the research findings
relating to urea and urine therapy.
2. What about urine injections?
Many people have asked me about the efficacy of urine
injections, and as you've seen, many of the research studies
presented in Chapter 4 utilized injections of urine as
part of the therapy. But doctors have also used oral urine
or urea therapy in non-emergency cases with equally good
results and urine injections have the reported side effect
of occasional redness and sweJling at the site of the injection
which doesn't occur, of course, with oral therapy. Oral
urine therapy also allows for slower application and absorption
which can decrease any possible de-toxifying symptoms.
Injections deliver an abrupt, forced introduction of medicinal
substances into the body, without allowing for the body's
gradual adjustment to the substance. However, there really
isn't any need for this sudden forcing of a medicinal substance
into the body unless there is an emergency situation. that
Gradual introduction of urine therapy, or any medical
therapy is always important, but even more so if you have
a history of poor nutrition or chronic, serious illnesses
which weaken the body and promote poisons and toxins in
the system. Introducing a new therapy too rapidly places
a strain on an ah-eady weakened system and can cause a
sudden release of toxins that may make you feel ill unnecessarily.
As clinical studies have demonstrated, oral urine or urea
can be fust as effective for non-emergency cases as injected
urine. And, as doctors themselves have commented, oral
urine therapy can be used at safely and effectively at
home without the unnecessary cost- and inconvenience of
a doctor's office visit, while injections can be reserved
for those with urgent needs under a doctor's care. However,
if your situation is extremely severe, urine injections
can definitely be of benefit. Dr. William Hitt (whom f
mentioned earlier) runs two urine therapy cimics in Mexico
and has administered hundreds of thousands of injections
to severely HI patients with remarkable success.
For more information on Dr. Hitt's clinics call 1-800-80Q-8849.
4. Can too much uric acid or urea be harmful?
As several of the dinical studies showed, urea, even in
large doses, has been found to be harmless to the body,
Researchers, (Urea - New Use of An Old Agent), reported
that they safely administered urea daily to several patients
for a period ranging from several day» to weeks,
and in some cases, even several months, without any side
effects, in doses ranging from 100 mg. per kilogram of
body weight to as much as 600 mg. per kilogram of body
weight. Decaux, et. al, (5-Year Treatment of SIADH with
Oral Urea), prescribed 30 grams/day for more than 5 years
for a patient with excess water and salt retention (hyponatremia),
and occasionally prescribed doses up to 60-90 grams per
day for one or two days without side effects. Normal urine
contains approximately 2% urea, and you normally excrete
about 24.5 grams/day, which is well below the dosages just
mentioned. So even. ii you ingested all of the urine you
passed during the day, (approximately 25 grams of urea),
this amount is much less than the dosages mentioned above,
especially in view of the fact that you would not be ingesting
all the urine you pass every day for long periods of time.
Uric acid, usually thought to be a toxic waste product
of the body, has been found by researchers to actually
be a natural body defense against cancer and aging, allowing
us to live much longer than other mammals (Omni Magazine
article, 1982). Most people think that uric add causes
gout, but strictly speaking, it is not the uric add alone
that causes the gout, but rather an overall, ongoing and
chronic overaridity in the body which can be caused by
many different factors including improper, overly-arid
diet, kidney, liver and adrenal disorders, obesity, diabetes,
chronic stress, undereating (anorexia), etc. Normally,
the amount of uric add contained in urine is not a problem
during urine therapy, because the body will excrete the
amount it does not need. However, when the body's ability
to excrete excess acids is impaired, uric arid excretion
is, of course, also impaired. If you fed that you have
a problem with chronic, ongoing overacidity (see section
on Monitoring Arid/Alkaline Levels in this chapter), make
certain that you decrease or eliminate meat while using
urine therapy. Also, improve your diet by eating more alkaline
foods, and decreasing arid foods before and after you start
on urine therapy. Monitor your add/alkaline level with
pH strips to determine when your pH has returned to a normal
or more balanced condition. In cases of chronic addosis
(over-acidity), do not do extended urine fasts or ingest
large quantities over long periods of time.
Use oral drops to begin; start with 1-2 drops once a day,
and gradually increase to 5-10 drops two to four times
a day, for one to three weeks, depending on your need.
Monitor your pH levels and your symptoms (see symptoms
of addosis in this chapter). You can also dilute the urine
in water, or use a homeopathic preparation of your urine.
5. How long should i use urine therapy?
The amount of time needed to achieve results with urine
therapy is different for every person and each condition.
Many people have found that chronic, long-standing complaints
require a longer period of time to heal, while others experience
rapid resuite. Logically speaking, it probably depends
on the condition, of your body's immune hunctions, ability
to repair itself, amount of damage to the body that has
been sustained during illness, etc.
In general, do not use large amounts of urine infernally
for more than two to three weeks at a time. Once you have
achieved solid results at whatever dose you're taking,
begin decreasing the amount and number of days that you
use the therapy internally, and use only a maintenance
dose from. then on, unless you come down with a cold, infection,
etc., at which time you would increase your dosage amount
and frequency during the period of illness. A maintenance
dose for many people is one to two ounces of morning urine
per day, although even 2-5 drops of morning urine per day
or every oiher day could be considered a good maintenance
dose, especially for those with acidosis or weak kidneys.
6. Can I do diagnostic urine tests at home?
There are several excellent urine testing kits that have
been developed in the last few years that can be used at
home and can save you an amazing amount of time and money.
Now you can perform many of the same urine tests at home
that your doctor performs in hia office. Also, these tests
are particularly helpful when using urine therapy because
you can monitor your own health progress easily and inexpensively.
The booklet. Simple Diagnostic Tests You Can Do at Home
gives a wide range of information. on what tests are available,
how to use them, and how to interpret these tests. The
booklet also explains how to interpret your urine color
and appearance which are important additional indicators
of health conditions.
8. Can pets be treated with urine therapy?
Many of the research tests on urine recycling have been
undertaken with animals, and vetermarians have used urine
therapy for treatment by catherizing the arumal and administering
oral urine drops with reportedly good results.
Urine home test strips are available to test for
these conditions and many others:
- Kidney and Urinary Tract Infections
- Blood in the urine
- Liver Function
You can purchase these strips in drug- stores
or they are available by catalog
Remember to begin your treatment slowly with a few oral
drops and increase the amount to a well-tolerated dosage.
Make sure that you're eating well and decreasing your meat
intake as you increase your urine intake. Do not use the
therapy while ingesting heavy amounts of nicotine, caffeine
or while using recreational drugs or therapeutic drugs
than small amounts. If you do decide to use it, however,
use only very small amounts (3-5 drops 1x day.) Frequent
small doses of one to three ounces for two to three weeks
can be extremely effective; larger amounts can be taken
for several days if needed and if you have no history or
presence of kidney disease; gradually decrease the amount
once your symptoms have abated and healing is apparent.
Drink as much water as you feel thirsty for, and keep weli-hydrated,
but do not force-drink large amounts oi fluid during the
therapy. Do not fast for long periods of time without competent,
professional supervision. Daily maintenance doses vary
from a few drops to one to two ounces of morning urine,
depending on your sensitivity and preference.
The Do's And Don'ts of Urine Therapy (UT)
1. Start with small amounts and work up to larger amounts
gradually for internal use.
2. Use only fresh, urine internally.
3. Test your pH to make certain that you are not overly
acidic before using the therapy and continue to monitor
your pH periodically during internal use of UT.
1. Rush into the therapy with large amounts.
2. Do Not combine urine therapy with
a starvation diet (or fasting) unless you have been using
the therapy for at least two months.
3. Do Not continue to work while fasting
on UT. If you are ingesting large amounts of UT and fasting,
you must rest and relax in order to avoid possibly stressing
4. Do Not ingest large amounts while
eating a consistently acidic diet.
