Puttur: Intake of one’s own urine or auto urine therapy is recommended in some traditional systems of medicine in India for centuries. But the modern systems of medicine look down upon it as not only ridiculous but hazardous as well.
Sulochana Kodavoor, a researcher and advocate of self urine therapy, gave a talk on its benefits as a resource person during a workshop on environmental hygiene and health in the municipal community hall earlier this week.
She has been propounding the urine therapy, conducting research and giving advice and guidance on the method of treatment for a few decades. She said that irrespective of gender and age, urine could be used as medication. Even healthy persons could improve their wellness with the intake, she asserted.
She said that research had proved it to be a panacea for a range of ailments like cancer, urinary problems, uterus ailments, non-secretion of sperm and inconsistent menstrual cycle, kidney failure and jaundice.
She further said that there has been a reference to the therapy in Atharva Veda as well as the Old Testament of the Bible. She said that she was currently studying the Qur’an to verify if it had made any reference.
Agreeing that generally the very thought of intake of one’s own urine could be putting off or nauseating, she stressed that regular intake of one’s own urine could not only cure ailments but also the persons could gain health and positive energy.
It was being said that the cow urine was the most effective. But cow’s urine was introduced much later as an alternative to the human urine because of the stigma attached to the latter. Human urine, in spite of being ten times more effective than the cow’s, had not become acceptable because of the nausea complex.
She added that once this mental block was knocked off and regular intake made a routine, one could get rid of all the illnesses.
While briefing about her research-based book on the therapy, she said that a number of cancer patients had been cured after they followed her advice and guidance. It should be taken in during the Brahmi muhurat early in the morning. Continuous wearing of high-heeled footwear could stunt the growth of the uterus, which also could be cured with the help of this therapy, she further said.
She claimed to have the network of a large number persons who were following the therapy, but on grounds of ethics declined to share the details in public.
