Urine Therapy benefits humanity as a whole as well as the individual health of those using urine therapy! Urine Therapy (also known as Amaroli, Shivambu Shastra, Uropathy or Orin Therapy), is extremely beneficial to physical health.
"Urine contains antibodies and immune stimulating factors against all viruses, harmful bacteria or fungi that we may harbour in our body. The researchers stated that even minute amounts of antibodies, sometimes so low that they cannot be detected with conventional methods, are effective in preventing and treating diseases." - Walter Last
The Ebers Papyrusan Egyptian book on medicine written about 1000 B.C., has a total of fifty-five recipes for urine therapy!
I, Atma, have been practicing Urine therapy on and off since 2008 when i learned about it during a yoga teacher training. Currently, virtually every day as soon as i wake up, i scrape my tongue (to remove toxins which rise to the surface overnight) then pee in my neti pot to catch my urine, catching the remainder in a glass. I pour a little from the neti pot into my mouth and swish it for around 15 minutes. This is very beneficial for the teeth and gums, helping any cavities to fill and potentially for teeth to regrow. While doing this i cup a little in my hand, hold it up to one eye then blink the urine into the eye for a minute or so, before doing the same with the other eye. I then pour a little into one ear, keeping my head tilted to one side to retain the urine and hold it for a couple of minutes, before repeating with the other ear. I also rub some urine on my face to keep my skin smooth and healthy. Some days, but not all (as i find this a little uncomfortable) i will then do Neti, which involves pouring urine into one nostril and either letting it flow through and out the other nostril, or blocking the other nostril and letting it flow out through the throat and mouth. I then repeat with the other nostril. This is very beneficial for sinus issues and asthma. Finally i clean my teeth with my homemade tooth paste consisting of Bentonite clay, diatomacious earth, himalayan salt, comfrey root powder and peppermint oil.
The remainder of the urine which i have caught in a glass is added to my morning juice which i drink before my yoga practice. After my practice i usually drink a "Vegan Golden Bulletproof Coffee" (made with turmeric, black pepper, comfrey - for strengthening bones and regrowing teeth - and coconut oil). This way i am not consuming any food until around 1pm, thus fasting for around 17 hours most days, which again is very beneficial for health. I then usually have a green smoothie, adding some more fresh urine to help the ingredients blend more easily and get the extra nutrition and benefits from the urine.
When i do not consume my urine, i either catch and store it in a bottle for later use as urine fertiliser for the garden, or i pee on the compost pile. Urine is far to valuable a resource to pee down the toilet (in fresh water which is then processed and cleaned). The same goes for our poo. Instead of contaminating our fresh water which then needs much energy and other resources to clean it, it is much better to compost it to rebuild our much depteted soil. I use the "humanure" system (see resouces section below for more info).
Urine therapy consists of two parts: internal appication (drinking urine) and external application (massaging with urine). Both aspects complement each other and are important for optimal results. The basic principle of urine therapy is therefore quite simple: you drink and massage yourself with urine.
To drink, take a very clean glass. In the morning, right after getting up, urinate in three steps. The first urine to pass through the urethra cleans the passageway thoroughly. You should not collect these expelled substances so pee for a second or two then pause briefly, position a glass, and let the urine pour in. When the glass is full, pause again. Set the glass aside and empty your bladder completely. This remaining urine does not contain many useful substances, and therefore you needn't collect it. It only would increase the amount of fluid you drink. What you have collected is the so-called morning midstream urine. This is the purest and richest urine of the day. For optimal effect you can catch and drink in this manner every time you urinate.
"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 recommended. 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) perfumed body or skin lotion. I rub fresh urine thoroughly into my skin in the morning before I take a shower and pay extra attention to my face and hair. Skin becomes soft and smooth, and hair lustrous and clean. A foot bath is good for the circulation 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 the washtub.
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 powerful. You can use both fresh and old urine for this. Your hair will, however, become more beautiful and vital. Those who apply urine therapy often do not turn grey but retain their original hair colour at a later age. If intensively applied, hair might grow again on bald spots."
