Although it may not sound like a healthy habit, urine drinking is finding new popularity as a health fad among New Agers.  For thousands of years, the Hindus, the Chinese and others drank urine and washed their bodies with it to cleanse and heal themselves

Urine therapy is an age-old practice of ancient India. Its practitioners talk of Shivambhu, auspicious water of Lord Shiva, and promoted it as an inexpensive way to gain health and vitality

Drink water from your own cistern, flowing water from your own well."

                                                                                                                                  - Book of Proverbs 5:15

Urine therapy is the ancient tantric and yogic technique which involves the use of urine for fulfilling vajroli kriya.  It is called ‘amoroli" which comes from the Sanskrit root word meaning immortal. It is designed to be used with tantric kundalini to purify the body so that consciousness may expand spiritually. Shivambhu indicates drinking the urine of Shiva himself. The golden urine of an advanced spiritual being was known as "soma" and was sought after by chelas. Devote chelas will drink the urine of their guru to obtain some of his spiritual energy. They claim to be spiritually uplifted by this practice.  

Although it may not sound like a healthy habit, urine drinking is finding new popularity as a health fad among New Agers. Urine is not just a solution of the chemicals that the body missed out on the first time around but it also contains new organic substances, that drinkers claim are useful. Hence the implied benefit of recycling urine.

With research that could fill volumes, you may be wondering why you haven't heard of this before. Well, urine is abundant (everyone has their own supply), it's free, and it can't be patented. Reasons enough?

It can be scientifically proven that drinking urine can help with jet lag, because of melatonin.  It is also believed to treat many skin conditions, including shingles.   It also is used to treat bodily imbalances like hypoglycemia.  You can drink it, gargle, use it as an enema or douche, or sniff it.

Urine contains compounds that are very specific to the individual from which it comes. It is antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, antineoplastic (anticancer), anticonvulsive, and antispasmodic. It is totally non-toxic.

Pharmaceutical companies have grossed billions of dollars from the sale of drugs made from urine constituents. Research is happening every day in labs attempting to isolate specific elements of urine so they can create new drugs and patent the substances. For instance, Pergonal is a fertility drug made from human urine. 1992 sales of this drug were reported at $855 million while it costs a patient $1400 a month to consume. Urokinase, a urine ingredient, is used in drug form and sold as a miracle blood clot dissolver for unblocking coronary arteries. Urea, medically proven to be one of the best moisturizers in the world, is packaged in expensive creams and lotions. Take the M out of Murine eye drops and what do you have? Yep. It's made from carbamide - another name for synthetic urea.

Urine is not, as many believe, the excess water from food and liquids that goes through the intestines and is ejected from the body as "waste". It is much different and much more. When you eat, the food you ingest is eventually broken down in the stomach and intestines into extremely small molecules. These molecules are absorbed into tiny tubules in the intestinal wall and then pass through these tubes into the blood stream.

The blood circulates throughout your body carrying these food molecules and other nutrients, along with critical immune defense and regulating elements such as red and white blood cells, antibodies, plasma, microscopic proteins, hormones, enzymes, etc., which are all manufactured at different locations in the body.

As the blood circulates, it passes through the liver where toxins are removed and later excreted from the body in the form of solid waste. Eventually, this now purified "cleaned" blood makes its way to the kidneys. When blood enters the kidneys it is filtered through an immensely complex and intricate system of minute tubules called nephron through which the blood is literally "squeezed" at high pressure. This filtering process removes excess amounts of water, salts and other elements in the blood that your body does not need at the time.

These excess elements are collected within the kidney in the form of a purified, sterile, watery solution called urine. Many of the constituents of this filtered watery solution, or urine, are then reabsorbed by the nephron and delivered back into the bloodstream. The remainder of the urine passes out of the kidneys into the bladder and is then excreted from the body.

The function of the kidneys is to keep the various elements in your blood balanced. When your body doesn't need something at a particular time, it is excreted - not because it is toxic or poisonous or bad for the body, but simply because the body does not need that particular element at the time.

Medical researchers have discovered that many of the elements of the blood that are found in urine have enormous medicinal value, and when reintroduced to the body, they boost the body's immune defenses and stimulate healing in a way that nothing else does.

All of the medical research done to date on urine indicates that it is completely sterile. If it becomes contaminated it happens after it leaves the body. Urine is a by-product of blood filtration, not waste filtration.

You should always use fresh urine immediately upon collection. You should not boil or dilute the urine in any way. You must use it in its natural form.

Many couples receive much pleasure from "golden showers" which involve drinking the partner's urine. This practice is not unhealthy and some claim it is beneficial. (probably only psychologically)
