Natural Cures Using Urine

| Modified on Aug 31, 2022
Your own urine can be a powerful home remedy, especially as a way to immediately soothe the sting of insect bites, jellyfish venom, and the toxins in certain plants such as stinging nettles.

Urine is naturally antiseptic, making it great for treating fungal infections, preventing infections of open wounds, and generally restoring skin health (including getting relief from acne!).

Honestly it really works ...... have been getting spots on my chin recently. I have tried so many things to get rid of them as the last 2 days I have put urine on my spots. They have calmed right down in this short time and has taken the lumpiness away and already they are starting to fade in colour.

Drink plenty of water and start doing it. If you have puss more than twice a day...

Good luck xx

I always wanted to find another way of getting rid of the small pimples that grows on my face. I am very happy that I found this website because I did not know that urine is good to treat acne. So after I read every persons comment about the Urine Therapy, I decided to put urine on my face the areas where I have acne last night. I did not wash my face and when I woke up I saw a diference on my face. I saw that the small acne pimples that I had was strinking and also my face look clear. I am very satisfy with the results and I will continue using my urine. Thank you

Urine works wonders! It cleared my cystic acne and I wish I would've known at first I found out about this therapy years after and it's awesome! And as long as you drink a lot of water it doesn't even smell. I put it on as a toner and leave it all day. No biggie! My friends think I am crazy but I am sure they would try it if they had acne too. ;)

Hey, I just wanted to let everyone wondering about UT for acne that I tried it last night for the first time and it already made a huge difference that even people at my work noticed. All I did was pee in a cup, dip a cotton ball in it and rub it over my face, also holding it on the larger pimples for 30ish seconds. Didnt smell at all (could be because I eat very healthy and drink alot of water) and within 10 mins my fiance and I saw a difference in the size of my pimples. I left it on overnight though, it dries quickly and if you don't let yourself think about that it's urine, you can live exactly the same as when you didn't have it on your face. Also, I have severe acne so to see results almost instantly, is amazing, a dream come true, and it's FREE!!!

So if you suffer from any kind of acne, I would try this because if it worked for my stubborn acne, it should work for you too!!! I couldn't be more happy or more excited :)

Hi guys. I'm a 31 yr old female and I have lived with acne since I was 14, that's a long time. All I know is a pimply face, I don't know the meaning of smooth it's a shame. I always have pimples, no break for me and a whole lot of spot scars. I started today using urine on my face after washing with hot water only and pat drying. I just wanna know if applying my urine 3 times a day is enough and how much of it should I drink and how many times a day too. Please someone tell me there's hope for me especially in getting rid of my acne scars! Thank you in advance.

Hi. My sister has the same problem as you, acne on face. I suggested urine therapy, topically, to her. She tried it, and said after four days, she noticed nothing. I then suggested borax, from laundry aisle at store, mixed with water to make a thin paste, and applied nightly. She began to do this, and said she has noticed a drying and shrinking of zits like nothing else she has ever tried. Her husband has good insurance, and her doctor has prescribed $400.00 medicine to her, it never worked. Nothing worked but the borax. Try that. Good luck!

Once the acne starts to heal (urine therapy works well for this), daily (preferably at night), cut a lemon in half and rub the lemon over your acne scars. Don't rub the lemon on active acne, just the scars. Works wonders for reducing the appearance of scars. Be sure to use an SPF on the areas you apply the lemon. Best of luck - hang in there!

The use of urine on your face does reduce the look of pimples you may have now. The only reason it does that is because your urine is just all your toxins flushed out of your body. The reason your pimples get smaller is because your pores can sense the toxins which aren't good for your skin and close up to protect your pores from it. that's the reason it looks smaller as if it made a difference. but, don't be fooled by these harsh toxins. they aren't good that is why your body gets rid of them through your urine. just wanted people to know that. Trust me I would know I am a dermatologist. :) Instead focus on using natural stuff such as lemons, peppermint, honey, egg, olive oil (suprisingly), and even stuff that you can eat that will help you from the inside out like carrots, tomatoes, kale, sunflower sprouts, and drinking apple cider vinegar and water. :) take care everyone. <3

Sara, Los Angeles, You might consider reading "The Water of Life" by John Armstrong and "Your Own Perfect medicine." By Martha Christie." Mr. Armstrong cured thousands of people with urine therapy which included internal and rubbing urine all over their bodies...Do you know that the eye drop medicine Murine is just synthetic urine? Both very, very informative books.

Dear Sarah --- please, do research. Mainstream thinking says urine is toxins and it is far from the truth. Google Martha Christi and you will find research testimonies by many scientists.

Amazing, no research and giving advice to others simply by surmising! Urine is a sterile fluid and has your body's blue print to address imbalances and correct these.

However, there is nothing like research so easily obtained online.

Namaste, Om

Sara, I'd like to add that urine from pregnant women is in BIG demand. The cosmetic industry is using it in their facial products and has been for many years...

You are a fear mongerer. Educate yourself away from main stream and then you will understand how foolish and common your statement is. Urine is not a toxin. There are more qualities in urine then modern medicine as urine gets to the root and heals, but, it takes time. I get so sick of people who have been brainwashed by wanting an instant cure. It takes time just like it takes time to build up a waste filled putrid body from modern day crap. It will take more than 3 days to cure toxic ailments. In many skin creams they use UREA from horse urine. Wake up world!

I was doing some reading on cancer for a friend and found that Ted warned that drinking cocoa and the use of urine therapy increases cadmium that can contribute to cancer.

Replied by Ted Bangkok, Thailand on 04/06/2012

The cause of most of the bone cancer I come across in Thailand is due to cigarette smoking (mostly from paper in the cigarettes), eating chocolate, drinking cocoa combined with urine therapy (you get concentrated cadmium). These are the causes of bone cancer from my clients. Specifically cases where I have treated bone cancer, the remedy was strontium chloride (as a substitute for strontium renelate) as an affordable replacement and more water soluble strontium taken at 1/8 teaspoon twice a day. The azoxystrobin kills mostly the fungus based cancer, which is also sometimes the case. But I used far lower dose in liquid from mixed with water, about 1/2 teaspoon twice a day. However, the one thing that worked across all cancer that I know for sure are DMSO (with aloe vera oil to prevent skin reactions), butyric acid (smells like rancid butter), and urea, and possibly urea peroxide (at low concentrations), and lysine. Urea is now included as part of the anti cancer protocol (but I really have to tweak this), as 1/3 teaspoon of lysine, 1/4 of N acetyl cysteine, and 1 gram of urea (is approximately 1/3 teaspoon) every hour for four hours in the morning and in evening. Beta glucan, vitamin C, and vitamin B3 also helped. Zinc acetate displaces the cadmium and taken at 25 mg every day will help. Cadmium and lead are two major sources if found to cause bone cancer, and lead must be displaced by magnesium rich water and other things, such as N acetyl cysteine.

I haven't really had a fully developed protocol as most clients seemed happy with it, but is not protocol I am happy with because they seek something to lessen the cancer from spreading which it does, but I am seeking an outright cure which is a little idealistic from the client's point of view.

Just to let you know that urine is not toxic. It is 95 percent water and the rest are vitamins minerals and hormones. A dermatologist will not make any money if all people cured themselves of urine which is abundant and completely free. Our urine is our own perfect medicine and totally useable. Collect it and drink it, bathe in it and feel the health.

Hi there, read the comments on Urine Therapy and thought, 'why the hell not?'. I've been using it on my face for the last 2 weeks, one to two times a day and it has really cleared up my skin and made it glow. People have been commenting, not least my girlfriend who was very amused when i told her what I had been up to.

It's not horrible, it doesn't smell when it drys and if you are worried just rinse with water. i do it in the shower first thing wash the rest of my body and then rinse it off last thing. I've stopped using soap on my face as well and my chronic mild acne (20 years and counting!) and bumpy forehead has cleared right up.

thanks for all the posters, great site.

Thank you so much for your comment on using urine to cure acne. I've been suffering with acne since high school but ever since last year I've had severe acne due to "who knows what". I've heard about using your own urine but I never thought I would try it until my grandma told me about it 2 days ago. I figured if they did it in her days maybe it does work. So far I did it twice already. It's not that bad unless you think about it. I haven't noticed anything yet but I'll keep you updated.

I just found Urine Therapy by chance. I could not but give it a try as a topical aid. MY first time it burned a bit and did not see much improvement, but when I leave it all night and woke up in the morning my skin was amazing. This is a gift from God than only few people is able to learn and... Take to practice. Ive tried tasting it, just a bit. I can imagine the benefits of drinking it gotta be wonderful just looking at the effect it has on skin. Better than Apple Cider Vinegar not as strong. No need to mix, its free, you know for sure its compatible with your body cause you absically created it. If it did not do harm to your body before leaving its not gonna do any harm if you put it back in. I don't know the science behind it curing ailments but I cant wait to start. Everytime I pee and push the toilet I feel bad for all the nutrients and benefits I know Im missing just for not having enough courage to drink it. Another use I found is teeth whitening. It does work with 1 application. Either gargle or brush.

So to resume, in less than 48h I have an amazing complexion even tone specially aorund my eyes, a bright white hollywood smilea nd less razor bumps. I think the best way to use might be at night before bed. I feel so sorry that I can't tell this to anybody I know my mother would benefit from this she is 60 BUT I know she would think I've gone nuts and really need help or obsessed with beauty. But to tell the truth, I dont care. Image and looks is everything, litterally everything in the world we live in. I look in the mirror and I see I look like 20 years ago. Thanks to ACV, manuka honey and now Urine. I dont care what anybody thinks. The same people disgusted at UT do every kind of bizzare unhigienic stuff with sex. So I dont care anybody judging me. We know the truth I laugh at ignorance. I have perfect glowing skin without spending a penny or harm my health. Im happy that there is already feedback on this Earclinic is my favourite comunity and I just came to share it ASAP.

My skin has the elasticity and freshness of my teenage years. I'm 30 now but nobody would say they always say early 20s

You're the one that used cocoa butter for skin with excellent results too? Are you still using it? Where can I find it? Thanks

Replied by Carlos

Definately cocoa butter is one of the best things Ive used it gives a nice compexion. Its difficult to find it raw pure withut perfume. I did. All u can find is a brand that starts with P and ends in R but its not as good. Honesly I have not used cocoa again after using urine therapy. Ive tried eveything and nothing beats Urine. Try also coconut oil but urine over night is unbeatable. Put it on leave it all nigt then come here in the morning and tell me how it goes.

I have just started urine therapy topically for cystic acne and I can say that it does work wonders. I had 10 cystic acne lesions on my face and have put urine on my face (5 times a day) for two days so far and the cystic acne is almost gone. This is amazing as I have tried all of the other natural remedies for cystic acne and none have worked this quickly. I haven't brought myself to drinking urine yet, but who knows??

I remember a teacher of mine in high school mentioning how she had put urine on her face and it helped with her acne. Years and years later, it popped back up in my mind. I have been struggling with bumps on my forehead ever since I stopped using hormonal birth control. Urine Therapy has helped stubborn little bumps on my forehead and helped to even out my skin tone. Whenever I am at home, I have urine on my face. I try to keep in on as long as possible and only wash it off when I have company or go out. I have seen my bumps decrease by about 30% over that past 5 days, hopefully they will all go away. I only use fresh urine but I am thinking about keeping it and using older urine. I have never ingested it, but I may start, the health benefits of it are overwhelming and easily researchable. Any advice about this treatment for acne would be greatly appreciated! So far so good though!

Hi! Just wanted to say, it's not recommended that you save the urine as it can develop bacteria. Only fresh!

@H from NY:

The best urine is aged urine for washing your body and hair. Some people have been known to drink saved urine over 15 hours and it gets rid of parasites. Andrew Norton Webber has youtube videos that explain all this process.

I drink my own waters in the morning which have the most benefit since all the vitamins and minerals have been coursing through my blood stream. Try it. You won't be sorry.

Urine really works for acne. I get really deep or cystic acne. The kind you can't pop and if you do it just gets worse and leaves a scar. After reading about using it for acne on this website, I just had to try it for myself. I peed on a cotton swab when I woke up and held it for a minute or so on the pimple. After just a few minutes it seemed to have brought the pimple to a head. The next day I did it again and now it's almost gone. This will be the way I handle my cystic pimple from now on. Try it and see!

I'm 19 yrs old and had acne for 9 yrs. It's moderate to mild though. I have a lot of scarring and I'm a little light so it shows badly. I just started UT this morning. How long should I keep it on my face? I also drink cucumber lemon water it claims to detox your skin.

Posted by Erin (Seattle, WA) on 01/11/2007

I'm really surprised this hasn't been posted, but the real remedy to acne or cystic acne is your own urine! Soak a cotton ball (first morning pee is best)hold it on the pimple, repeat every time you urinate, the pimple will go away. Contrary to popular belief, human urine is sterile and contains your own wasted antibodies. Don't knock it until you try it, it really works!

Dear Megan from Calgary, I was suffering because of my acne since I was 18. I had really bad cystic acne and I was for 2 years on accutane. To make the story short, it took me 10 years to finally find a remedy to clear my skin. I eat 1/8 of a teaspoon of turmeric daily and I apply my own urine on my face daily. My face now is glowing, the scars are disappearing, and there is no more acne. Sorry for my english (it's my second language) and good luck.

Acne, Rash, Glowing Skin

I started using morning urine on my face 2 weeks ago after my cousin told me about it.

I applied it before and after bathing, and several times a day since I work from home.

I had some blackheads on my cheeks, and one on my forehead I have had sine I was a teenager that just wouldn't go away.

Now, its almost gone. I bet it will be gone in a week. I have to really move my forehead very close to the mirror to see it. Who knew urine could do that. Oh, the rash on my armpits and neck disappeared in one week.

My skin glows too. And its only the start. I want to see the results in a month, two or a full year on urine therapy. Great!

Auto Immune Diseases

Posted by Agnieszka (Dublin, Ireland) on 08/24/2011

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!
