Urine therapy - the drinking and external application of one's own urine as a healing agent - is an ancient Eastern tradition, claimed by devotees to be the oldest of natural remedies. The former prime minister of India, Morarji Desai, drank a glassful of his own urine every day - and lived to reach his century! Coen van der Kroon was as sceptical as any westerner when he was first persuaded to try it for himself while staying in an Indian ashram. He had cut his foot badly but applying conventional antiseptics had no effect. When, in desperation, he followed local advice and wrapped his foot in a cloth soaked with his own urine, the wound began to heal completely within days. This experience prompted him to embark on a long journey around the world to research urine's history, uses and efficacy. The Golden Fountain, the most complete book to date on urine therapy, is the result of those investigations. Today, an increasing number of doctors, health practitioners and journalists are endorsing urine therapy as an effective do-it-yourself home treatment. ".. all that is required for a hefty dose of melatonin is to drink one's urine at the start of each day ...There are, in addition, several other neglected therapeutic uses of urine". - Dr James Le Fanu, The Daily Telegraph. "Drinking one's own urine appears to stimulate the immune system .. There is an authoritative and growing body of medical evidence suggesting that it has valuable antiviral, antibacterial and anti-fungal effects." - Peter Tattle, Positive Nation. The author tackles his subject with sensitivity and conviction. He provides valuable research details, together with detailed case histories and a user-friendly guide to urine therapy's practical application in relations to specific ailments. One thing that everyone agrees upon, of course, is that it's absolutely free!
