Many years ago  I was in the Navy and was curious about prisoners of war survival. I was also preparing myself to join the UDT [underwater demolition team] and was learning about survival methods. In these searches I learned about people drinking their urine and how that fluid saved their lives. My initial reaction was like yours – Yuck!
Only knowledge will move you through that :-). For many years I continued to hear and read about encounters with injuries, emergencies, survival stories and just the simple use of UT [Urine Therapy] in infections etc. Surfers have used their urine to heal/neutralize jelly fish stings for years!
It’s important to me that I give my perspective about UT and the opportunity to have this in your arsenal for health and survival! When you do your homework on this topic, you will take the control of your health [especially in emergencies], to a much higher level!
UT has been used for centuries in various cultures. It has been argued that it cannot be right to take back into the body something which the body is apparently discarding. Yet this objection ignores the principle of COMPOSTING as practiced by organic gardeners. Rotting dead leaves and vegetables, when blended back into the soil, provide valuable mineral salts to nourish new plant life. The same principle holds good for the human body.
Please go to Amazon.com and purchase the book by John Armstrong “The Water of Life”. Disregard the various cover colors – the original was printed in 1937. Reading his work shows us that the battle of “disease management” was alive and well 75 years ago! Another very short book to consider is “The Choice Is Clear” by Allen E. Banik.
I remember reading a small hard cover book 25 years ago [don’t remember the name] that railed about the downfall of the Nation’s health because of the pharmaceutical industry. The book was written in 1886! Reading it today, you would not have to change much! The populous today is extremely toxic beyond what anyone could imagine! Virtually all auto immune diseases have toxins as its foundation.
Let’s look at some basics; our urine is processed through the most sophisticated distiller that exists – our kidneys. The fluid we call urine is an incredible solution that has many attributes that we probably never knew about. It is probably the ‘cleanest’ fluid on the planet!
Here is another perspective; while a woman is carrying her baby in the first three months the fluids that the fetus is living in are primarily hers. The next six months the fluids are primarily the fetus’ urine! Obviously not ‘toxic/dirty water’… The kidneys are the most efficient distiller in existence! Urine is probably the most pure fluid on earth. Most high end cosmetics use ‘urea’ extensively since there are few substances on earth that are better for healing skin tissue!
Here is a statement that will stretch you a bit! If you had a poisonous bite/sting or nut allergy, put drops of your urine on your tongue about ½ minute plus after bite/reaction, the lymph node sensors in the lower jaw/mouth/tongue will evaluate the challenge/need and tell the body to create the antidote/solution! Go to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_msWtSljFQw – this lengthy [2+ hours] interview has powerful information on ‘distilled water’ [just the first ½ hour is powerful].
The range of healing solutions that UT can bring to the table is astounding! Cancer, common cold, rheumatism, arthritis, obesity, prostate challenge, pyorrhea and the list goes on and on! The critics of UT have very weak cases and are $$ motivated in my opinion. Remember there is NO money to be made with UT!
Educate yourself and live!
