While drinking one's own urine (the core practice of urine therapy) understandably has a squirm-inducing factor for some people, the practice is ages old and has very enthusiastic proponents. What is certain is that urine is antiseptic -- capable of killing micro-organisms -- and for that reason was in fact used to keep surgical instruments free of disease causing germs during the American Civil War and into the 20th century.
Urine therapy is said to be good for acne, general skin health, and in fighting fungal infections. Generally, the first urine one passes each morning is said to offer the greatest benefits.

[YEA] 07/04/2013: Devid from Manc, Uk: "Drinking own urine twice a day, cured my chronic Acid Reflux. But you need to drink enough water to get clear stream of urine."
07/21/2011: Tony from Vancouver, Bc, Canada: "Hello, I was wondering if urine therapy can help in autoimmunine diseases either internal take or external use on affected skin disorder.
One important question that I couldn't find the answer for:
Is it safe and more effective to use a healthy, athletic guy mid-stream morning urine who is not using any drug or meds, for urine therapy?"Replies
08/24/2011: Agnieszka from Dublin, Ireland replies: "No, it is not. You need to drink your own urine because only your own urine contains nutrients and antibodies specific to your own body. So if you're looking to treat an auto-immune disease, introduce your own antibodies from urine and not somebody else's - this way you're treating YOUR illness. Best of luck!"
12/20/2013: Bachcole from Colorado Springs replies: "What Agnieszka from Dublin said. Only, I believe that it is "homeopathic" or energetic, and the other guy's energy is different from yours."
02/27/2009: Annette C. from Medina, Oh : "I am searching for a doctor who does urine therapy to treat Cancer"Replies
05/21/2009: Mary Frances from Mineral Wells, Texas replies: "This is for Annette C. from Medina,Oh, who wanted a name of a Dr.that used urine therapy for cancer.You might try looking up Dr.Stanislaw Burzynski, Houston, Tx.Good Luck & God Bless"
06/05/2011: Mirandagk from San Antonio, Texas replies: "what type of cancer does it cure/help with???"
[YEA] 12/20/2013: Bachcole from Colorado Springs replies: "Urine therapy heals EVERYTHING because it does not attack the disease directly. It strengthens the body's own healing energy/system."
[BETTER BUT WITH SIDE EFFECTS] 02/18/2010: Su from Truro, Nova Scotia, Canada: "I had read that urine therapy will cure candida. I was pretty sure that candida was a large part of my health problems, but to be sure, I did the test - I spit into a glass of water first thing in the morning and waited 30 minutes. Sure enough, there were lots of strings going from the saliva down to the bottom of the glass, starting about 5 minutes after the saliva hit the water.
I'm REALLY tired of my health problems so I wanted to have quick results. I drank about 2 oz. of urine every time I used the bathroom, for a whole day. The next day, today, as I sit here beside another glass of water with my saliva in it, I notice no strings whatsoever and it has been about an hour. I am so excited!
However, as a caution to those who take medication: I take thyroid medication, and in my haste to get rid of candida, I forgot that it might have the effect of increasing the effects of the medication, esp. with the amount I drank. Very early this morning I awoke to a VERY fast heartbeat and pounding head. I will have to reconsider whether this protocol is for me. I do NOT want to end up in the hospital with a thyroid storm! Has anyone else dealt with this? I did read where one person was able to discontinue her thyroid medication altogether while on urine therapy. Another great benefit, if possible. I will perhaps need to consult my doctor on this."Replies
07/12/2011: Catherine from Wellington, New Zealand replies: "Apparently it is important to massage face hands and neck when ingesting a lot of urine to prevent racing heartbeat. This is even more important if on a urine and water fast."
07/12/2011: Ub2664951 from Mebourne, Victoria replies: "Hi! I just wanted to know if u fasted on urine or had foods in between? plz let me know cause I m desperate! Thanx!"
01/19/2012: Jen from Hahira, Ga replies: "I'm on thyroid medication, Nature-throid, and so far I've not had a racing heart. I've only been doing UT for about 3 weeks."
[YEA] 06/04/2009: Kavita Ballah from Port Louis, Mauritius: "Hi my name is Kavita Ballah. i am a Mauritian, married and mother of two kids 22 & 18 yrs. i am now 43 yrs old. i had surffered from candida since 24 yrs now. i have never known what it's like not to suffer & not take medicines. All my life i have struggled and fought for my health. i tried so many things but there has never been a cure. i was very sick. For a very long time.
i tried all kinds of herbs and chemicals that exist on the market home and abroad. i spent all my saving going around the world ( US, UK, India, malaysia, Indonesia, Reunion island) in search of relief. In 2001, i had hysterectomy followed by adhesion on the left which nearly killed me.
3 months back, i was told i had Pelvic inflammatory disease, adhesion on the left again, left ovarian cyst 5.8 cm for the 4th time(had ablation done once), vaginal yeast infection, chronic cystitis, sinus infections and chemical allergies.
i knew about Urine Therapy some 10 yrs back. a friend insisted i should do it. Did not trust it that much then until one night i was on my knees crying becuase of pain in my lower abdomen. i just remembere UT. Next Morning i started on it and immediately my pain reduced to 20%. That day i did it whole day and the next dat my pain was down.i was suppose to go for surgery on the 3rd day. i postponed it and for following week. i gave myself one more week to decide. within 5 days my cyst shrunk and all my pain reduced to 60%. i started beleiving in it and from that day till now i am continuously drinking urine in the morning.
My chronic cystitis and yeast infections has disappeared . After one months, i was a new person. Today it's nearly 3 months and i am happy to confirm that i don't suffer anymore. my sexual life is so beautiful and i see life full of values.
This is a message to all women who are suffering from Candida. Urine therapy is the answer girls."Replies
06/30/2011: Ub2664951 from Melbourne, Vic replies: "did u fast on urine or did u just take the morning urine. How much urine did u consume? plz let me know as I am desperate!!!"
02/24/2013: Vidya from Pune, India replies: "Hi dear Su and Kavita. I suffer from serious vaginal infections that look somewhat like the athlete's foot. The entire vulva looks whitish and have watery discharge often. Doctors diagnosed it to be a yeast infection. But I am not getting relief from the allopathic or homeopathic meds.
After reading your replies I want to start the urine therapy. Would you please please let me know how you guys did it, did you fast the first day? how much of it did you take? Do you need to dilute it with water (I read it in a few articles)?
Please reply guys. Thanks."
04/06/2013: Manoj from Nakur, Rift Valley replies: "Dear Vidya, All you have to do collect the first urine in the morning, drink it half and with remaining half you wash the area several times, do not take bath for atleast 1 hour, let it dry itself. Your problem will be solved within one month for sure. All the best"
12/21/2013: Saliu from Lagos, Nigeria replies: "Please can someone with a yeast infection drink her urine. While urinate some particle like milk colour will be coming out"
12/21/2013: Prioris from Fl, Usa replies: "People in general who are successful in drinking their own urine tend to be on a vegetarian based diet. This is the secret.
Meat eaters who drink their urine will tend to have an extremely briny or salty taste. Many years ago I tried and could not tolerate the taste. The salt overwhelmed me."
[YEA] 09/07/2008: Michelle from Toronto, ON: "I've suffered from cold sores my entire life. I hate when I feel that tingle coming on. I tried everything, and some things will help and shorten the duration, but I finally found what will stop if from even developing. My step-dad said he heard of people using their own urine. Just pass a q-tip through your own stream of urine, then dab it on the spot where a coldsore is developing. I was VERY reluctant to try this, but one day I felt one coming on and I was desperate. I tried it, and it worked!! Nothing came of it! I've tested this 2 or 3 times since, and can happily report its still working! I'm so happy to have found something that works."Replies
11/10/2012: Dr Rakshak from Jodhpur, Rajasthan / India replies: "We have to drink fresh urine through nostrils more and more at a time and do it 3 times daily and after that we have to blow out our nose properly and in addition we have to blow our nose an and when we keep water in out mouth while taking shower & Bath then there are less chances of cold. we have to massage our head with olive oil but use less oil and do more massage."
11/22/2010: Laura from Edmonton, Alberta Canada: "Does anyone who has researched and studied the benefits of Urine Therapy know whether a person could inject their urine via a syringe? I would like to have my daughter try this, she is a juvenile diabetic but will not drink it. I've read here and there bits and pieces of this way mentioned but no instructions, or clues as to whether it was done by a professional who filtered it or anything. Could I try it on myself first and inject some urine into my muscle? I read that an injection is better for curing anything because it by passes the immune system. This would be a way to get it into her. She won't drink it even if I mix it in something else. Anyone know about this? Laura"Replies
07/04/2011: Catherine from Wellington, New Zealand replies: "Try making up a homeopathic mixture for her. Trick a urine sample out of her and make it up on the quiet. Maybe she could be persuaded that a homeopathic remedy will work if she doesn't know how it was made. Instructions for making are in the UT books and also on the web. Good luck"
07/04/2011: Catherine from Wellington, New Zealand replies: "I forgot to say, injections of urine are supposed to be quite painful with a burning sensation. "
07/04/2011: Granny Laura from Waco, Tx Usa replies: "The urine injections really burn if you don't have novacaine to go along w/it! The people that operated the clinic where I took urine injections from are now across the border in Mexico. They basically got run out of TX because they were advertising in the TV Guide in Houston that they would keep AIDS patients alive for $100 a week. Their AIDS clinic was 2 stories up from their allergy/immunology clinic where I went. The FDA got involved since they were owned by big pharma even back then, late 80s, and shut both clinics down.
You must know how to give the injections in the hip w/o hitting a blood vein. If you don't know how get help from your friend that is a nurse!! We all know one.
I was able to find out from clinic personnel that: you must not do urine therapy if you have a UTI. You would be injecting a bacteria back into your body.
Limit liquid intake the day before so that urine will be concentrated. I then had to eat a very small mixture of the foods I was allergic to the moring before my injection and eat them again before bedtime. Next morning I washed good and collected a urine sample in a tall glass container that had contained olives, it's about 6 in tall but only 1 in wide. It should, of course be washed really well. Duct tape it to the inside wall of the washing machine and run the machine on a spin cycle. lol It's a centrifuge! The protein solids will be white particles in the bottom of the bottle when it's done.
I then remove the 1 in needle from the syringe and draw the urine on the top of the bottle into the syringe. The clinic started w/1 cc the first week and worked up to 10 cc. Then I used 2 filters like the ones used at the clinic. The filters are made by Millipore and are fairly expensive as they come in boxes of 50. The larger filter, Millex-ha. 45 um filter goes first, then the Millex-gs. 22 um is the last before attaching the needle. The filters screw on like the needle does. The injection goes into the hip and if you don't know how to give that you might want to look it up! As I said, it burns like fire, and for what its worth the novacaine isn't all that much help.
I knew the injections were helping me but I had no idea how much until I went in for my injection w/a sick migraine one day for my treatment. The nurse put me in a bed until it was time for my treatment. 15 minutes from my injection the migraine was gone! I felt really good and ready to go and get something to eat! As it turns out, you body pumps a LOT of antibodies into your urine when you have a migraine. What a waste!
I found something else out about the treatment, inadvertantly. During the course of my treatment I managed to get bitten by "fire ants" and chiggers. Chiggers had always made me ill for a couple of weeks. My body made antibodies to these 2 insects that evidently got into the urine for my injections because I no longer react to fire ants except w/the initial pain of the bite. They had left itchy sores before. Chiggers are still chiggers, how can something that small make an adult woman run a fever, feel ill and make big sores on a grown woman?! I still itch when I get the bites but I can get the bite sites gone in a few days w/some cortizone ointment.
When I started at the clinic my IGE was 4. It only got up to 19 during the prolonged course of my treatment. But, I felt great. Normal IGE levels run up to nearly 600.
This treatment isn't for self administering by the novice or faint hearted. Lol I got help from the clinic after they moved to a different location and name. The personnel there told me of AIDS patients backwashing their filters w/alcohol and reusing them.
I am thin so I have no problem twisting around to give myself injections in my hip. Some people might not be able to do that.
If you decide to try this on yourself just be aware that I don't know what the consequences of getting the injection into a vein might be. You must always pull up on the syringe when giving any injection to see if you get blood back, and ONLY give the injection if you don't.
Administering this treatment to a child might get you in a lot of trouble with Children's Protective Service. And, I have to assume that it might also be considered practicing medicine w/o a license if done to another person. Since it really works, and costs nothing except for the materials for injections the FDA is going to be really angry! Big Pharma can't patent your urine, and you can get it for free!
Knowing the personnel at the clinic let me in on the info that a big Hollywood star was being treated in a local hospital for AIDS under an assumed name. He is still alive today!
I'm wondering why we gave Africa billions for AIDS treatment and drugs when Bush was president. Its like giving Big Pharma a giant donation. But, there I go getting political! Besides being a Health Nut, I'm also a Political Junkie! Good luck! I understand the desperation some of us feel. I'm still trying to live over the beta blocker I got off of 14 mos ago. And since I have these filters here..... I had to dig out the boxes to tell you the info on them. My only problem is the needles and syringes, I need to talk to a pharmacist about what I want to do w/them. You are supposed to be able to buy drug paraphenalia like that w/o question, to prevent the spread of AIDS. In real life, just getting little insulin syringes is a real hassle unless you have a script for them!
Oh yes, this procedure has been standard in the medical field for allergy treatment for a very long time. But, Big Pharma wants you to take allergy shots as long as you live, and your allergist buys them from Big Pharma!"
07/17/2012: Aravin from Banglore, Karnataka, India replies: "It is always best to take it with plain. If so hard, please mix it with some juice and drink it. Probably cranberry juice should help."
05/07/2013: Jack from Junction City, Or replies: "Urine therapy does not have to be complicated. In treating both myself and others I have found that it can usually be self administered. I have found that 0.1cc works quite well. Using an insulin or allergy syringe and injecting on the lateral aspect of the thigh. For hayfever type conditions I would recommend a shot a day until the symptoms stop - usually within a week and thenonce or twice a week. I have found that you can even use the same syringe repeatedly for maybe 8 - 10 injections. I think it is also possible to stop acute allergic reactions with urine shots - as a precaution call the doctor or ambulance first and while waiting for the response give a small shot of urine.
The Armstrong book demonstrates the wide variety of conditions that have responded. Christy's book Your Own Perfect Medicine is another good one to help you deal with skeptics."
[YEA] 02/18/2011: Katnco from Denver, Co, Usa: "I started using UT when I was diagnosed with MCS (multiple chemical sensitivity). I was very reluctant to try it, but I was desparate to regain my health. At the time I was severely food allergic. I was on a strict rotation diet and had only 12 foods to rotate over a 4 day period. I read three books on UT before I started. I followed these directions to ease my food allergies and it worked like a miracle cure! I drank fresh UT 15 minutes before eating a food I was allergic too, I ate a little of the food and then 15 minutes after eating I drank more fresh UT. I did not get sick. I was able to incorporate all my foods back into my diet; with the exception of peas? But I didn't mind because I could eat again with out a rotation diet. I was FREE!
I've used it topically on my skin and received TONS of compliments.
However as time went by and my health improved I stopped using it. Now I have candida and was on EC reading for remedy's and ran across UT. Ah ha! Of course! Why didn't I think of that!
I am going to drink to the God's as soon as I finish this post. THANK YOU TED, Bill and all the posters on here taking responsibility for their own health! Yeah to all of us for our courage and good will to live a better life!"
02/18/2011: Francisca from Michelbach-le-bas, Alsace, France replies: "I have to believe you if you say you got better but I am always left with one question no one has ever answered so far! There are quite a few health problems that show by doing a urine test, like a bladder infection. The bacteria is found in the urine. Won't you be drinking the exact same thing that is making you sick? I would really like to have an answer to that question...."
03/22/2011: Silvia from Toronto, Canada replies: "Francisca, urine also acts as homeopathics, the bacteria, toxins, parasites etc. Which are in minimal amount in urine, once re-ingested trigger a powerful immune response. UT is safe, try to get Armstron's book even though there are many out there with a lot of scientific explanation."
03/23/2011: Francisca from Michelbach-le-bas, Alsace, France replies: "Thanks Sylvia, you are the very first person who gave me an explanation! If you know of any good books please post a review on the book section with your thoughts. I would like to learn more about UT."
04/02/2011: Silvia from Toronto, Canada replies: "Sorry for the delay, I'm really busy right now. The best book that I read is "The Water of Life" by John W. Armstrong. Armstrong was not a medical doctor but treated hundreds of patients with terminal illnesses. I enjoy reading it, it reads like a novel. In this books he describes the urine fast and how the people recovered. Is the best book on the subject.
For the skeptics, ther is "Your Own Perfect Medicine" by Martha M Christy. Ms Cristy was very sick and tried numerous treatments with no avail. She recovered with urine therapy and than apparently hired someone to research all the medical literature and research that was done ion urine. She published all these research results in her book with references.
There is also 'Urine Therapy Nature's Elixir for Good Health' by Flora Peschek_Bohmer, PH. D. who describes how she treat her patients with urine in her practice in Hamburg Germany.
I read another book on the subject and many blogs and posts on different sites. Is worthed a try mainly for the very ill. Fast works best iven for few days. I hope this help."
01/16/2013: Om from Hope, Canada, Bc replies: "I drank my own medicine for fifteen years. As a result, I had more hair on my head than ever in my life. My ayurvedic doctor, holding my pulse, mentioned I had no toxins in the body.
Then I was diagnosed with diabetes, I stopped. But now I will start again because on researching, it is perfectly alright when using the middle portion only which is anyway the way to take it. The problem is only in the mind. One day I had stepped onto a big nail. Well, I found an interesting book to read, peed into a bowl, placed it into the bathtub and kept my foot in there. I had to teach Yoga the next day with standing poses : there was not any pain and the wound was clean and not really noticeable. I could do all my yoga poses and had no sensation of a previous injury. To your health, along with Armstrong and friends. Om"
[YEA] 06/17/2007: Edwardo from Mexico City, Mexico: "I read Kevin's urine therapy for nail fungus. I was doubtful but we are poor and I had no choices. So I try it and amazing results! I drink more each day and not only fungus but other skin rash problem go away. I now drink it with milk and also put it inside my shoes before work. Thank you Kevin."
[YEA] 07/05/2006: Kevin from Salt Lake City, Utah: "I tried every remedy on the internet i could find. I read about urine therapy on the same and tried it immediately. After two months of drinking 3 cups every morning of my own urine you should see the brand new fungus free toenails that have grown in, absolutely free. I hope this message gets sent to other sufferers because it is the best cure that does work almost immediately, I believe I started seeing results within the first 3 days. Just look up urine therapy on google if you are still skeptical. Thank you."
07/26/2014: Cindy from Illinois, Usa: "My original comment was July 3 and today is July 26 and even though I keep forgetting and have only massaged my feet with urine 6 times, 1 plantars wart that I've had for years - I don't know, 20 years? - it's about half the size it was.
I rid myself of 3, several months ago with banana peel (Thank you Earth Clinic! ), but they came back plus a new one and I don't ordinarily buy bananas so I just forgot about it for several reasons - with the habit of having them for so long, I just didn't notice, plus I don't often buy bananas, plus I never did figure out how to apply them so that they weren't just a mess - point is, I plum forgot about it.
Anyway, the urine is different. It's not doing what it's doing in the same way the banana peel did. For one thing, since the first massage and application, they haven't hurt when I walk. I could push up and rest on the balls of my feet, where they all are. The callous is still there, though about half the size, but the "root"(?) seems to have died with the very first application. I don't know.
Anyway, it's not "killing" the warts from the outside in, like the banana peel did. I'm pretty sure it simply stopped their life cycle and the good skin is taking over because they're simply going away the same way they came. The small one is nearly gone, leaving no hole or discoloration or anything. It's like a small spot of thick skin, is all.
Something else I noticed is that the skin stays "wet" longer than seems possible, but not anything like "oily" wet. Just wet. Like "water wet". And to top that off, it exfoliates! If you massage it in and then keep massaging - which is easy, because, like I said, it stays wet - in just a couple of minutes you can feel the dead skin under your hands as it begins to shed and ball up. A LOT of dead skin. And I use a pretty rough exfoliating mitt on my feet, in the shower. I couldn't believe it!
So, of course, you KNOW what I did next, which was massage my face with it and the same thing happened!
Anyway, I've used it on my feet and on my face. I still haven't drank any, but I've put a few drops under my tongue, twice. I gagged something terrible, the first time. But not the second. I THOUGHT I was going to, but I didn't. And I ALMOST drank some, but couldn't get past the color of it. LOL
Another thing I want to say is that all of the "instructions" about eating right and all of the other "healthy" stuff they always say, no matter how well something works - don't worry about all of that! My diet is atrocious with many processed foods, I DO eat meat, I AM overweight, I drink coffee by the gallon and I've smoked for over 40 years. If ANYBODY needs the benefits of urine therapy, it's people like me who DON'T live the 'healthy lifestyle"!
Even so, I have no other illnesses or health issues and I seldom get sick so it will be interesting to see what effect I experience when I do begin drinking it. Which I'm still trying to talk myself into. I think I'll get some Perrier and use an empty green bottle so I can't see it...LOL
Oh! I DO still have swelling in my foot, which I broke a few weeks ago, so maybe it will take care of that. I totally forgot. I broke my foot in half and it healed really fast, but that was before I heard of urine therapy, so...must have been something else. I don't know what. About the only healthy stuff I consume is grape juice and cayenne. It was a bad break. I basically folded my foot in half, right at the instep. Flexing it, now, there's just a little stiffness, so maybe the massage HAS helped, I don't know. When I had the cast, I "washed" my feet with coconut oil by sort of massaging it on, lightly, and then toweling it off, which may have helped the healing process.
This is long! I'll report back about the urine therapy...if I can find me some courage, LOL!"Replies
07/27/2014: Om from Hope Bc Canada replies: "Just wishing you success as you are on the right track. When ingesting urine, the body will immediately manufacture the means to counter balance and heal whatever is needed.
I have done it for years and in my case I use it also to heal diabetes. Massaging or using packs with urine is very effective . I am vegan and my urine tastes like a slightly flavoured fruit juice. It balances hormones and is very effective for numerous diseases. There is much research but it is suppressed. In fact, in the middle ages when the gnostics, very spiritual people, were found out doing UT they were beheaded because this practice nurtures strong spirituality cleansing the many energy path ways in the subtle body. As now, power that be do not like free thinking/living citizens. The world is like that.
[YEA] 07/03/2014: Cindy from Illinois, Usa: "UT makes perfect sense. I've often wondered about the mystery of some nutrients, particularly minerals. They can't just be "food" because they're elements. How would an element be consumed? They must play other roles, like escorting or even "driving" various nutrients to where they need to go, or helping to break them down or operating in conjunction with one another to perform various functions or something.
Another thing is that a great deal of energy is expended in the process of getting them OUT of the food one eats, in the first place. So, urine may not merely contain "excesses", but things you actually DO need. If they perform functions, it may be that some jobs simply result in excretion, despite the body not having enough of what it's excreting. And by drinking your urine, you're actually giving your body free nutrients and "worker bees" that have already been extracted and "processed" down to the necessary forms so the body can put them straight to work.
Just some thoughts. I LOVE this site! It really makes you think and I LOVE to think!"
