What is it about Urea in Urine?

urea

First what is urea?  It is a colorless crystalline compound that is the main nitrogenous breakdown product of protein metabolism in mammals and is passed out of the body in urine.  Urea forms in the liver, but is found in the many parts of the body including your blood and your lymphatic system.

 

After 1828, chemist learned how to produce a form of urea in the laboratory.  However, that is a substance in the class of urea and not urea that is specifically by your body tailormade for your individual needs.  There is a difference.

 

For example, there are different kinds of CoQ10.  One is natural; the other is chemically concocted in the factory.  

factory

One is worthless to possibly harmful [made from tobacco]; the other works like a charm.

 

This is similar to the problems some have with vitamin E for the heart.  There is a natural kind and a factory kind.  For all the protestation to the contrary from the manufactures and their minions, they are not the same.  The factory one does not work and causes prostate problems.  The natural one works like a charm and does not cause prostate problems.  That is why the drug manufactures tried to corner the market on natural vitamin E.  They know it works so good and without negative side effects.

 

I have a friend who is a nurse practitioner.  These are the nurses that are trained to stand in for the doctor.  They can even write prescriptions.  Figuratively speaking, you might call them doctor light.

 

She was telling me that she worked in hormone replacement and did the standard practice with one doctor when she got out of advanced school to be a nurse practitioner.  She was prescribing what under her supervising doctor that practice did, the standard factory produced harmones.  She developed good relations with many clients who followed her to her next practice that was doing the same general specialty work.  

 

At the next practice that she was at she of course had a different supervising doctor, who practiced natural hormone replacement.  She thought what is the difference, but that was where she was working so she started prescribing the natural hormones.  

 

The patients that followed her from the former practice started complementing the new treatment.  At first she did not get it.  They were so much better on the natural hormones.  She was dragged kicking and screaming into the conclusion that nature is not the same as factory fresh.  The natural is better and has something to it that is better than man made.

This is the case with urea.  Your best source of urea is your source of your urea, your urine.  It is naturally produced and particularly designed for you.  While a factory might chemically concoct a generic urea, it is not the same.

What is it about Sterile Urine?

 

As I was doing my research, I kept reading about sterile urine.  Even the reseach scientist and doctors

scientist

use that adjective to refer to urine. The first thing that I noted in answer to this question is that the first part of your urination is antiseptic.   This is nature’s way to help keep your urinary tract free from disease.  

 

That may be why those who use their urine internally let the first of the urine go and start catching the fluid in the mid stream and finally let the last of the urine go out.  They are only drinking the mid stream because the antiseptic in the first urine flow might affect the good bacteria in your intestinal tract.

Your urine is not some nasty, dirty, and toxic substance rejected by the body.  Your kidneys are providing a by-product of blood filtration, not waste filtration.

This is so well known that it has been given the medical name “plasma ultrafiltrate”. It is a purified product of the blood.   Your kidneys work to regulate all the elements and their concentrations in the blood. Think of it this way, figuratively speaking urine is like leftovers from a meal.

leftovers

If you have too much of something, it is processed and eliminated by the kidneys.   

 

But before this happens your blood passes through the liver filtration where toxins are removed to be excreted as part of your solid waste.

 

It is only after the trip through the liver that this purified “clean” blood undergoes to a second filtering process in the kidneys,

 

where excess water, salts, vitamins, minerals, enzymes, antibodies, urea, uric acid and other elements not needed or usable at that time are distilled into a purified, sterile, watery solution that we call urine. The function of the kidneys is to balance the various elements in the blood.

 

These elements in the blood are not filtered out because of their toxicity and /or harmfulness, but  rather because the body does not at that time need that much of those elements.  It is a balancing action.   

Further, when taken internally, your urine does not directly enter the bloodstream but moves through the digestive system, where its different components are sorted out. That which is useful is reused, while the other parts are left behind as part of your solid waste. When the level of toxins increases, your body stimulates the intestines and the lymphatic system into an auto flush to eliminate stagnated excrements accumulated in the colon.

How much toxins you have in your urine relates to how much stagnated excrement there is in your colon. So the toxins, which are found only in minute amounts in urine,  are beneficial in stimulating a cleansing reaction in you.  They tend to vaccinate and protect the body from illnesses.  And these are you specific because you are using your own individual urine.

What is it about Your Urine?

 

The ancients saw something esoteric about urine. It was thought to be a supernatural, living food because they contains “life force” or prana.

life force

Using urine for therapeutic purposes directs us to the “healer within”.  This internal healer is said to work on a mechanistic level and at the same time on an energetic level.

They taught that urine is like a holographic substance.  That is it has the ability to affect all levels from the physical, through the electromagnetic fields of emotion and mind,  and even up to subtler soul vibrations.

 

Urine is considered to be a nourishment, a healing that has maybe been too taboo.  

taboo

And for the financial side of medical practice is has practically no financial incentive for the companies to peruse or encourage this therapy as a potent medicine.  You do not have to buy it from them.

snake oil

One’s own urine, a living food, contains elements that are specific to one’s body alone.  You are your own pharmaceutical factory.

The body is 24/7 making a wide variety of antibodies, hormones, enzymes and other natural chemicals that regulate and control your body functions and combat imbalances, even ones that you may not be aware of.   This magic auto elixir is all found in your urine.

 

In clinical studies scientists have found that there are thousands of critical body chemicals and nutrients that flourish in your urine, and they are tailored just for you.  When you take your unique medicine,

 urine medicine

these chemicals and nutrients work as natural vaccines, antibacterial, antiviral and anticarcinogenic agents.  They are also hormone balancers and allergy relievers. The chemical information that urine carries cannot be duplicated or found in any other source.

While nature produces no two people who are exactly the same, there are no two urine samples in all the world that has the exact same components.  It is as individual as your fingerprint, maybe more so.  Your own urine is a living food, which has chemical elements that are specific to your body, and your body alone.

What is it about the Smell of Urine?

 

Mainly we are talking here about noticing changes in urine odor.  But what about smell in general?

holding you nose

Normally urine does not give off a very strong smell.  If you catch the smell of something very pungent, you may have developed an infection or stones.  Either of these may create an ammonia-like odor.

 

Diabetics could notice that their urine smells sweet.

smell

The body in that case is probably passing out excess sugar. In the past [as far back as ancient Egypt] and even to relatively modern times, doctors would taste urine for this sweetness to diagnose diabetes.  Still want to be a doctor?  

 

There are foods that can change urine odor. Asparagus is the best known.

Asparagus

What is smelled when they eat asparagus is the breaking down of a sulfur compounds called methyl mercaptan  This is the same compound which we find in garlic and skunk spray.  When you catch a whiff of something after enjoying a plate of asparagus, that probably means that you inherited the gene for the enzyme that breaks down mercaptan.   You are special, not everyone has that gene.

Urine Therapy Pt. 4

What is it about the Color of Urine?

 

A pigment called urochrome gives urine its yellow color. That is a variable color from pale yellow to deep amber, which is determined by the concentration of the urine. If you have a darker urine yellow, it is usually a sign that you’re not drinking enough fluid.  

glass of water

However, changes in color can happen when you eat or drink a lot of something.  Like if you eat a lot of beets, you may think that you have blood in your urine.  It is though a normal result of eating a lot of beets, beeturia.  Do not be alarmed.  

 

Another thing I have noted is that after you take in a lot of food with vitamin B or take a large supplement of that vitamin your urine will turn bright fluorescent yellow.  

vitamin B

This is nothing to be alarmed about.

If your urine is very pale, it means that you are either drinking a lot of fluid [not necessarily a bad thing], or it might be a result of taking a diuretic, which forces the body to get rid of excess water.

 

Urine can turn many of colors, and so unusual colors are not necessarily a cause for alarm.  Some medications can color the urine fluorescent green or blue; eating a lot of carrots can tint it orange, vitamins can brighten the yellow hue.

 

There is also an inherited disease called porphyria can color urine to a color like port wine.

 

One doctor says you are seeing blood and your urine is also cloudy, there’s a good chance you’ve picked up an infection.  Blood in the urine maybe should be checked out, but do not panic, it is usually nothing to worry about.  But check it out just in case.

What is Urine?

Scientists are beginning to understand urine by analysis.  Their studies have found 3,000 compounds in this sterile fluid, and have published the current state of analysis in an online database.

 

In the seven year study the researchers found that at least 3,079 chemical compounds can be found in urine. 72 of these compounds are byproducts produced by bacteria, while 1,453 are produced by the body in various chemical reactions.  Then there are 2,282 that come from diet, drugs, cosmetics or environmental exposure.  This is why one should be careful not to do urine therapy when you are taking pharmaceuticals, because there is a possibility of overdose of the drugs.  You are ingesting some of that back into your system which may be a problem.

 

“Urine is an incredibly complex biofluid. We had no idea there could be so many different compounds going into our toilets,” said a study researcher, David Wishart, who is a professor of biology and computing science at the University of Alberta.

The list of known metabolites that have been found in human urine using current technologies is currently posted in an online database called the Urine Metabolome Database.  Metabolome has to do with to the metabolites, which are the products of metabolism and include hormones, vitamins and other molecules.

 

Scientists seem to agree that the chemical complexity of urine makes it a substance hard to fully understand.  Urine typically contains metabolic breakdown products from various foods, drinks, drugs, environmental contaminants, waste metabolites of the body and bacterial by-products.

 

When compared to other body fluids like saliva or cerebrospinal fluid, urine contains an estimated 5 to 10 times more chemical and biochemical compounds.  

 

The researchers surprisingly found over 480 compounds in urine, which were not previously reported as being in the blood.  The scientists have thought the chemicals in urine were just a subset of compounds found in the blood.

 

Why might that be?

 

“The fact that so many compounds seem to be unique to urine likely has to do with the fact that the kidneys do an extraordinary job of concentrating certain metabolites from the blood,” the researchers wrote.

 

But who really knows.  That is their speculation.  

 

The database of known chemical composition is not a finished project.  The scientist themselves even say that it will continue to grow as new techniques and instruments become available to identify additional compounds.

 

“This is certainly not the final word on the chemical composition of urine,” Wishart said.

Urine Therapy Pt. 2

What is the History of Urine Therapy?

 

Urine therapy is not a quirky new thing.  It has a long history.  

 

For example, it by Solomon was in the Bible mentioned in the Book of Proverbs.

solomon

“Drink water from your own cistern.”   When my seminary  professor in Proverbs class came to this admonition, he became very quiet.   He wanted to say something, but appeared to be hesitant.  

 

Sort of under his breath he quickly said there is this ancient medical practice of drinking your own urine [one sentence].  Then he quickly and forcefully started interpolating it into a thought about marital fidelity.  

 

No professor, Solomon was referring to urine therapy.  My teacher’s interpolation came from modern aversion to the idea and dealing with the text for what it said in its ancient context.  When we consider urine therapy we need to step outside our social mores and look at the practice’s on its own merits.  

 

When I was researching salt,  I found that in the middle east new born baby in old times were first bathed in camel’s urine.  It was the salt content that they thought cleansed the baby.  Salt is a way to deal with bacteria and pathogens.  

 

When Cortez was on his campaign to conquer the Aztec Empire, he was aided by a native woman, Do~na Maria.  After a battle, Cortez and others wrote about how she helped dress the wounded.  She, after cleaning the injury, wrapped the wounds in bandages soaked in urine.  It worked well as an antiseptic.  

 

Urine therapy has been used and written about for 5,000 years in India.  They have a form of medicine called Ayurveda.  This is a powerful practice for healing that is continuing to be practed today.  It has been so respected for thousands of years that they call it the “Mother of Ayurvedic Medicine”.   Shivambu means literally “Water of Shiva”, referring to their divine respect for the practice.

Urine therapy as an alternative medicine was popularized by British naturopath John W. Armstrong

 John W. Armstrong, the waters of life

in early 20th century.   Armstrong had three things lead him to this therapy,  his family practiced urine therapy for treating minor stings and toothaches, he read the Biblical Proverb “drink water from your own cistern…”, and he experienced a recovery from ill-health using it.  He did a long fast [like Gandhi] in which he treated his malady taking in nothing but urine and tap water.  Armstrong’s 1944 book sold widely.

Urine Therapy Pt. 1

What is Urine Therapy?

Urine therapy is an alternative medicinal therapy.  Yes, we are talking about what you think we are talking about.  It goes by several names, urine therapy, urotherapy, urinotherapy, uropathy, or auto-urine therapy.  All these reference various uses of human urine for medicinal (or cosmetic) purposes, including drinking of one’s own urine,
urine therapy

topical application on one’s skin, or gums.  Notice it is always done with one’s own urine.

 

Urine therapy through the centuries has been used as a very effective healing modality.  Sometimes when all other therapies have proved useless or ineffective, urine therapy has turned out to be the healing answer that worked.  We will look at some of the possible reasons why this may work for you.  This is a practice that is discussed and used by many holistic practitioners.

 

This may not be as crazy as it sounds. Is has a long history of use.  Most practices that stay round for that long are of some measurable  benefit.  One time I googled “what is urine therapy”,

google

and for that there was over 2.3 million hits on places to learn about it.  I have been told that it has been rediscovered by many new agers and is widely practiced in the west.  Primitive cultures and more indiginous cultures use it.  Gandhi

gandhi

used it, especially during fasting.   

 

I know what you are saying.  Yum. Yum.  But when we are doing things for medicinal purposes, it is not about liking to do it.  It is about the end game.  

 

When I first started thinking about urine therapy as a research project, I mentioned it to a friend, expecting get revolution or laughter.  She with a out a flinching told me that she had an tia (aunt) in Mexico who was dying of cancer.  

cancer

The doctors had told her to get her affairs in order, there was nothing else for her.

 

She heard about urine therapy.  When she used it, she reversed and recovered from cancer, and her only therapy at that time was drinking her own urine.  

 

Will it work for all cancer?  I can not say that.  Should it be your first choice?  I am not writing to make choices for you.  I am just saying this might be an option to consider for disease and other maladies.  

 

So, it is from this starting point that we will look at urine therapy.

What are Some Other Enema Recipes? Pt. 5

 

Neem Tea Enema

neem tree

Neem is a powerful skin herb. Also many have found it very effective for amoebic intestinal infections and Ulcerative colitis.

The enema baseline recipe start to boil a pint of good water. But before it reaches the boiling point cut off the heat and quickly add 2 tablespoons of the neem leaf powder.  Then cover and allow to steep for several minutes. Strain and allow to cool.  

 

Oil Enemas

oils

You can use almost any type of vegetable oil in your enemas.

 

Mineral Oil    for     mineral oil is not absorbed in the colon excellent stool softener.

 

Olive Oil   for    some oil is absorbed in the colon, very soothing to the colon.

 

Flaxseed Oil  for   good at combating candida, slight irritating effective colon wall.

 

Tea Tree Oil   for  natural antiseptic, germicide, antibacterial, fungicide.

 

Some find it very difficult to hold in an oil-enema for more than a few minutes.   If holding the oil enema is a problem for you do not worry.  Just let it out start again.   If you can, lay down while you wait.  The urge to go should pass quickly.  Then you can get up and pass the contents of you colon without straining to hold it in.   

 

When the oil has been received the colon, don’t be fooled by thinking that you need to pass gas.  You may be making a mess.   

 

To make any oil enema you may choose use 8oz. oil of your choice, 2 qts. warm good water.  Of course adjust to the amount of water you are using.  

 

Slippery Elm Enema

elm

In your blender, mix 1 Quart of warm good water and 2 tablespoons of slippery elm powder.  Just open capsules of it.  Blend it and strain it.

What are Some Other Enema Recipes? Pt. 4

 

Flaxseed Oil enema

a flax seed

Essential fatty acids found in flaxseed oil are the important healing substances. These fatty acids are used to cause the body to function correctly.  However your body does not produce them on its own.  Nonetheless they work all over the body protecting cell membranes, thereby making the cell efficiently admit healthy substances while refusing to admit unhealthy substances.

 

You can make a tea for the enema by brewing 2 to 4 tablespoons of flaxseed in 16oz. of good water  Allow to cool to warm before using in your enema.   

 

As far as the flaxseed oil enema – As a baseline add 16 oz. of warm Flaxseed Oil to 1½  quarts of warm filtered warm water.

 

Tea enema – Black, Oolong, Green, or white tea

tea bag

Prepare the tea as if you were going to drink it and use as an enema.  You might make it extra strong for this purpose.  This is polyphenol rich in antioxidants.  See my book on teas, to see the many benefits of tea.

 

Lemon and/or lime Juice Enema
lemon

Juice from 2 lemons and/or limes or in combo into 2 quarts of water and you have your enema.

 

Milk Enema

cow

Use 1 1/2 quarts of warm filtered water in 16 oz. of warm raw milk.

 

Mineral Oil Enema

mineral oil

 

For this enema you mix 16 oz. of warm mineral oil with 1½  quarts of warm filtered water.  Of course as always you adjust the amount that you use as to the amount of water that you will be using.
