Unique therapy

Sunday 31 March 1996

A slightly unsavoury idea but urine has actually been found to cure several illnesses. And this belief drew hundreds of delegates to the three-day long First World Conference on Auto Urine Therapy (UT) held in Goa in late February.

UT advocates more than just drinking urine a few times during illness. To tackle more serious maladies, it should be applied with expert guidance -by observing urine fasts, performing urine massages, enema and diet restrictions. Among the famous proponents of UT were late Morarji Desai -India's ex-Prime Minister and L Ramdas -the former Indian Navy chief.

Ryoich Nakao from Tokyo, Japan, who participated in the meet argued that in terms of immunology, urine acts as a source of an 'information code' about the disease in the body which helps the body to activate the immune system to produce the right biological response modifiers needed to cure the disease. Participants stated that bacteria in the urine is capable of treating rashes, allergic coughs, eye diseases, heart disorders and diabetes.
