Within the context of Urine Therapy, we use the terms “urine therapy” and “urine fast” interchangeably.
Urine fasting is based on a partial fast, during which no food or drink is ingested other than our own urine (or that of another person, if applicable) and water, as needed.
In urine therapy, the synergistic action of urine combined with fasting occurs.
In order to refer to and describe a “standard urine therapy” the following 4 conditions must necessarily and simultaneously occur:
1. Ingestion through the mouth and through the skin of all of our urine;
2. Water intake, as needed;
3. State of tranquility and rest;
4. Therapy applied to a patient with a serious illness such as cancer.
Urine ingested through the mouth and skin provides the basic “pre-digested” elements that make up proteins (among other countless), such as peptides and amino acids, that can be applied to the re-composition and regeneration of the organs and tissues devastated by the disease. Particularly through the skin urine is directly absorbed into the blood-stream.
Cancerous or diseased tissues that are destroyed by disease are excreted in the urine metabolized into their constituent elements (peptides, amino acids and simple nitrogenous compounds). These elements from cancerous or diseased tissues are not marked as “cancerous” or “sick” elements, but rather become healthy “building blocks”, no different to other “bricks” or compounds from protein metabolism, all of which can be used precisely for the reconstruction and regeneration of those same organs and tissues wasted by disease.
During urine fast, our only excretory organ is the urinary system. Through urine we expel outside the metabolic “waste” generated as a consequence of the normal vital processes within as well as “waste” from the degenerative and destructive processes of disease.
Urine, being an ultra filtrate of blood (filtrate of blood plasma), contains most of mineral salts, compounds and nutrients typical of blood plasma. Every time we urinate, therefore, we lose a certain proportion of these valuable elements and compounds.
In a strict fast, without ingestion of any food (nor urine), the substances that we lose through urine are not replaced, and therefore we are losing vital substances.
Why then do we consider strict fasting, without any ingestion of food, to be a therapeutic agent of the first order, when what is happening is a constant loss of valuable elements through our urine?
The sick person needs rest to heal, the more complete the better. The process of digestion requires a lot of energy, therefore simple strict fasting on its own is a powerful therapeutic agent which will provide absolute rest to our digestive system, which will greatly facilitate the healing process.
Thanks to starting a “fasting break” our body automatically enters into a “regenerative and healing mode”, focusing on self-healing, without any energy being distracted in the digestive processes that would involve food intake.
Now then, comparing the mode of action of simple “strict fasting”, properly speaking, with the mode of action of “urine fasting”, the mode of action of strict fasting can be viewed as “passive”, the losses which occur through urine are not replenished, nor is the healing process supported by contributions from “external” therapeutic agents, such as happens with urine fasting.
However, as we have said, simple fasting supposes a complete physiological rest for the organism, which allows it to focus on its self-regeneration and self-repair mechanisms.
In contrast, the mode of action of urine therapy is eminently “active”. Urine contributes to the body ALL the substances and elements contained in the blood plasma, in different proportions. Some of the additional elements provided by urine, such as stem cells, can actively seek out and target diseased tissues, not only to regenerate them, but also to specifically stimulate the self-healing of the diseased organs themselves.
In urine therapy, as there is not any food intake apart from urine, urine will provide each time is ingested through mouth and skin, discrete amounts of nutrients (apart from antibodies, stem cells and other healing agents as we will see below) Therefore, urine therapy must be carried out daily, several times a day, over a one-month period, as I recommend.
In short, as regards nutrients, by ingesting all of the urine we produce, we replenish all the excreted substances with no loss of vital substances taking place.
At the beginning of a fast, energy costs to maintain vital functions are preferably covered by our reserves of carbohydrates (sugars in the form of glycogen) and lipids (fats), our organism tries (both in strict fast and urine fast) not to use proteins (from muscles and tissues) as a source of energy. However, even at the beginning of a fast, a certain consumption of protein must take place, since some proteins are necessary for the maintenance of metabolic and body functions.
This small protein consumption for maintenance of bodily basic functions, is also excreted with urine, mainly as urea, and so it is recuperated in urine therapy. In contrast these nutrients are all lost with urine during a strict fast, as there is no food or urine intake.
The urinary bladder fundamental role in the formation of urine.
The key to understanding the mode of action of urine therapy lies in taking into account the participation of the whole urinary tract (not only the kidneys) in the formation of urine. The urinary tract includes the kidneys, ureters, urinary bladder and urethra.
For the purposes of urine therapy, and indeed also for the purposes of conventional medicine, it is a serious mistake, with practical negative consequences, to think that the kidneys alone are responsible in urine production. The urine that is excreted through the urethra has not been formed by the kidneys alone, but rather the whole urinary system contributes in urine formation.
After leaving the kidneys urine is transformed and “enriched” when it first goes through the ureters, then goes in the bladder, where it is stored, to then go through the urethra to finally being excreted outside as “final urine”.
For the purposes of urine therapy, the urinary bladder and urethra behave, as if they were “outside of the body”. Similarly, some of the body openings, such as the nose, mouth, the colon and anus, may be considered, at certain effects, as being outside of the body.
Urine, before voluntary urination occurs, is stored in the bladder where a profound transformation of its composition takes place.
Indeed, the urinary system is highly exposed to invasion by certain types of pathogenic microorganisms, particularly Escherichia Coli infections. This is mainly due to the proximity of the urethra to the final part of the digestive system, namely the anus.
In this respect the urinary bladder has evolved powerful defenses against infection threats by pathogenic agents, which normally are unable to get through the bladder wall and so are unable to reach and infect the rest of the urinary system.
Indeed, the epithelium that covers the urinary bladder constitutes a formidable barrier that prevents, by a variety of mechanisms, the passage of practically any type of invasion by pathogenic microorganisms, which are constantly on the attack.
The bladder epithelium, for example, among other functions, produces mucus that prevents microorganisms from settling in the bladder epithelium to subsequently cross it and infect upwards the rest of the urinary tract: ureters and kidneys. Urine is stored in the bladder until we urinate. After urination, there is always some urine retained in the bladder. This urine remainder is normally in a state of mild non-pathological “fermentation”, due to the more or less permanent resident microorganisms which have succeeded in reaching and remaining in the bladder but which may have not been able to cross the bladder epithelium.
IN SHORT, AND SUMMING-UP THE MODE OF ACTION OF URINE THERAPY.
When ingesting urine we provide the body (apart from nutrients), with antibodies, stem cells and healing elements that can only be formed in the urinary tract, outside of the body as it were, and very particularly in the bladder, where urine is stored.
In addition, and as importantly as what have been expounded above, the fact that the bladder behaves as “exterior to the body”, means that urine may be regarded as a foreign substance carrying with it a certain degree of infection, infection (vaccine!) of which our body has “no knowledge” and which may have and explain an observed self-vaccination effect on us of our own urine.
