I know that by after reading the title of this post you’re thinking how disgusting it would be to drink your own urine. But to be honest even if you’re reading to this point you’re probably slightly intrigued by the idea.
I first heard about Urophagia often referred to as AUT (auto-urine therapy or amaroli) from David Wolfe many many years ago. I think it was the way he explained it that sounded intriguing to me.
It has been a part of the ancient yoga tradition Ayurvedic for thousands of years.
The Romans did it, the ancient Chinese cultures did it and it’s one of the most healthy substances you could ever drink. Drinking urine for medicinal purposes can be traced to societies in ancient Egypt, China, Hindu and Aztec histories. Advocates also cite a prominent verse in the Bible: “Drink water from thine own cistern and the streams of thine own well.” Proverbs 5:15
I’m not exactly sure if that verse in the Bible above is talking about drinking urine but who know?!
What’s In Urine Anyway?
Urine contains enzymes, vitamins, minerals not to mention it’s completely structured hexagonal liquid. Because it is created by your own body, it helps to re-educate your immune system as what is foreighn and what is domestic. It helps to teach your system and fine tune it to recognize pathogens and invaders. It’s similar to reading a book for the second time or watching a movie for the second time.
You catch so much more and learn so much more by reading a book all over again. It’s the same with drinking your own pee. Besides having so many life giving and essential qualities, it becomes a teacher to every cell in your body.
If you think about it everything in life is a cycle. We’ll compost using old scraps of food, manure and newspapers and feed that to organisms who biologically transmutate that into mineral rich soil. We’ll take that soil and plant plants into it. Then we’ll eat the plants and the cycle continues.
Think of urine therapy as composting for your body.
The best part is this medicine (urine) is free and I’ve even heard Dr. David Jubb talk about how you can consume your own urine even if you’re on chemotherapy! Can you imagine that?
Why Drink Your Urine?
The reason for drinking urine is pretty simple really. Scientists know that urine is just a byproduct of the filtering of blood. It’s not just excess water. When blood cells, filled with oxygen and nutrients go through the liver, the poisons and toxins get pulled out and are eliminated with a bowel movement. This filtered and cleaned blood go to the kidneys where excess nutrients get taken out of the body. Plasma ultrafiltrate (Urea) contains perfect ratios of nutrients, urea, enzymes, hormones, vitamins, antibodies and minerals.
It’s also antiviral, antifungal and antibacterial. The reason it is this way is because it’s a byproduct of the body trying to balance sodium chloride with water. Since urea can kill bacteria and fungus and drastically lower inflammation you’ll find it in many creams and lotions for use on the skin.
Ever wonder why it’s a good idea to pee on your foot if you ever get stung by a sting ray while swimming in the ocean? It’s precisely because it is antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral.
If you’re ever out of water and in a survival situation, drinking your own urine can be great way to survive.
Urine therapy has been used to overcome diseases such as Arthritis, Cancer, Hepatitis, Multiple Sclerosis, Eczema, Psoriasis, Diabetes, Herpes and adrenal failure. It is commonly used to combat venom from snakebites, jellyfish and beestings. Urine is the main ingredient in infertility drugs.
Also the drug Premarin is widely known to contain urea from horses.
Other Uses For Urea
You can even use a drop or two of your pee on your skin (for dry skin, candida, toenail fungus etc) and put a dab of DMSO (Dimethyl sulfoxide) right on top of it. The DMSO will drive those powerful antiviral and antifungal properties deep into the dermis of the skin and allow the healing to take place.
Urine therapy is powerful medicine and can be used in many creative ways!
It’s widely known in the medical community how great urea is for treating certain diseases. But why have we never heard about it? My opinion is that it’s very taboo in our culture to admit that you drink your own pee.
I think the main reason you haven’t heard about it is because it works and it’s 100% free. If there’s no money in something, the medical industry will avoid it like the plague and then demonize it so you won’t try it.
They have to protect their brand.
But better yet, instead of waiting until your in a survival situation or you’re dying of cancer to try it, how healthy could you become if you made it a part of your daily practice starting right now?
Why not be preemptive in terms of health? It can help regulate hormones and even has the ability to re-introduce vitamins and minerals from the foods you eat, back into your body. This is a way to make sure you’re absorbing and getting the full benefit from all the healthy foods you’re eating.

How To Drink Your Pee
Sometimes people get grossed out by the thought of drinking it. I’ve been doing it for years and I’ve come up with a great method of not tasting it at all.
First of all the best way is to start very small. I’m talking just a drop or two in a glass of water. Try to get urine from the first time you go to the bathroom in the morning, mid stream. The first bit of urine that comes out usually contains more toxins.
Consider doing a couple drops of your first morning’s urine mid stream. If your pee is very yellow (like a dark yellow) that might mean you’re dehydrated or you’ve eaten very poor quality foods. You want the urine that you drink to be more clear when first starting out.
As you are more comfortable with drinking more of your urine, you can add a teaspoon or tablespoon of Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar. This stuff is so strong and powerful that you won’t taste the urine at all.
There has also been talk that taking an oil right after the urine will help release all the fat soluble vitamins from your urine. You could consume a spoonful of olive oil to accomplish this.
The vinegar is a great way to mask the flavor of urine.
The next time you go pee just realize you’re wasting nature’s most perfect medicine!
So the real question is, do you have the guts to try it?
