Your own perfect medicine
By Martha Christy
You may think that when it comes to alternative health therapies
- you’ve heard it all. But there is one natural therapy you’ve
probably never heard of - even though it’s one of the most
powerful, most researched and most medically proven natural cures
ever discovered. No matter how hard it may be for you to stomach,
the fact is that knowing the truth about this incredible natural
substance will be one of the most crucial health facts you’ll
ever learn. And one of the most remarkable things about this incomparable
natural therapy is that the medical community has already been aware
of its astounding efficacy for decades, and yet none of us has ever
been told about it. Why? Maybe they think it’s too controversial.
Or maybe, more accurately, there wasn’t any monetary reward
for telling people what scientists know about one of the most extraordinary
natural healing elements in the world.
But no matter why the medical establishment has chosen to keep
this invaluable information a secret, it’s time that every
man, woman and child be told about the only health tool in the world
that is always available to everyone and never out of reach - physically
or financially. So open your mind and get ready to learn the incredible
medical facts about human urine - the facts that will change your
Our bodies produce an invaluable source of nourishment and healing
that we can utilize to heal ourselves and to maintain our lives
and our health in both everyday circumstances and in emergencies
and life-threatening situations.
The following excerpt from a news broadcastvividly illustrates
the tragic consequences of the public’s lack of information
and our completely unfounded misconceptions regarding our bodies’
own perfect medicine:
Tom Brokaw, NBC Nightly News, October 16, 1992: "In Egypt,
rescue workers found a 37-year-old man alive in earthquake rubble.
He survived almost 82 hours by drinking his own urine. His wife,
daughter and mother would not and they died."
The medical proof
For most of the 20th century, doctors and medical researchers have
been proving in both laboratory and clinical testing that our own
urine is an enormous source of vital nutrients, vitamins, hormones,
enzymes and critical antibodies that cannot be duplicated or derived
from any other source. They use urine for healing cancer, heart
disease, allergies, auto-immune diseases, diabetes, asthma, infertility,
infections, wounds and on and on -- yet we’re taught that
urine is a toxic waste product. This discrepancy between the medical
truth and the public information regarding urine is ludicrous.
When I contracted a crippling, incurable disease early in life,
I used every available conventional medical and alternative healing
method over the course of many years without success. When an acquaintance
suggested I try "urine therapy," I thought she’d
lost her mind, but with no options left, I swallowed my prejudice
and decided to give it a go. To my own (and everyone else’s)
amazement, my healing was so rapid and so profound with urine therapy
that no question remained in my mind that someone in the medical
community had to know more than they were telling about this incredible
body substance. As a matter of fact, they did know more—a
After many months of haunting university libraries, scanning countless
microfiche files and poring over piles of medical journals, I had
amassed a small mountain of research on the use of urine in medicine
and healing. I discovered that urine, far from being a toxic body
waste, was actually a purified derivative of the blood made by the
kidneys which contains, not body wastes, but rather an incredible
array of critically important nutrients, enzymes, hormones, natural
antibodies and immune defense agents.
At the end of it all, as I sat tiredly in my chair eyeing the stacks
of research papers covering my desk, I realized that the medical
community had pulled off one of the biggest hoodwinks in history.
Take for instance the doctor who reported that "urine acts
as an excellent and safe natural vaccine and has been shown to cure
a wide variety of disorders including hepatitis, whooping-cough,
asthma, hay fever, hives, migraines, intestinal dysfunctions, etc.
It is completely safe and causes no side effects." (J. Plesch,
M.D., The Medical Press, 1947); or the oncologist who reported that
"a patient with intractable ovarian cancer was treated with
Human Urine Derivative and is now completely well and enjoying the
rest of her life." (Dr. M. Soeda, University of Tokyo, 1968).
These remarkable findings were published in medical journals - but
did you ever hear about them?
What about the immunologist who, after extensive clinical and laboratory
research stated: "It was rapidly appreciated that undiluted
urine administered orally was therapeutically effective for Immune
Therapy and was initiated when it became obvious that an allergic
condition had become uncontrollable" (Dr. C.W. Wilson, 1983,
Law Hospital, Scotland)? Or the Harvard medical researchers who
discovered that active "antibodies to cholera, typhoid, diphtheria,
pneumonia, polio, leptospira and salmonella have been found in the
unconcentrated urine of infected individuals" (Lerner, Remington
& Finland, Harvard Medical School, 1962)? What abut the Scandinavian
researcher who, in 1951, conclusively proved that human urine can
completely cure tuberculosis? Since tuberculosis is now resistant
to antibiotics and is considered deadly, isn’t it time we
found out that our own urine is medically proven to reverse it?
Then there’s the research into wounds and burns using urea
(the primary solid component of urine). As only one research study
among many reported: "In America, urea has been used for the
treatment of various infected wounds and it has been found to be
extremely efficient...even the deepest wound can be treated effectively....
Urea treatment has been successful where other treatments have failed.
For external staph infections we found urea preferable to any other
dressing...there are no contra-indications to its use." (Dr.
L. Muldavis, 1938, Royal Free Hospital, London).
These medical reports are only a few of the more than 50 research
studies I compiled and published in the book Your Own Perfect Medicine,
but they certainly give an indication of the importance of what
we’ve never been told about urine by the medical community.
As far back as 1954, the Journal of the American Medical Association
(July) reported that "More scientific papers have probably
been published on urine than on any other organic compound."
Another publication revealed that, "more than 1,000 technical
and scientific papers, related only to low molecular weight substances
in urine, appeared in medical and scientific literature in one single
I think one of the most interesting pieces of information on urine
I came across was the fact that the amniotic fluid that surrounds
human infants in the womb is primarily urine. Actually, the infant
"breathes in" urine-filled amniotic fluid continually,
and without this fluid, the lungs don’t develop. Doctors also
believe that the softness of baby skin and the ability of in-utero
infants to heal quickly without scarring after pre-birth surgery
is due to the therapeutic properties of the urine-filled amniotic
Reports on the extraordinary external benefits of urine abound
as well. Medical studies relate remarkable cases of stubborn or
"incurable" chronic, severe eczema that miraculously disappear
with urine therapy. Because urine is both anti-viral and anti-bacterial,
it’s ideal for treating cuts, wounds and abrasions of all
kinds. Acne, rashes, athlete’s foot and fungal skin problems
respond dramatically to urine soaks and compresses as well.
For home use or emergency treatment care for wounds, poisonous
bites or stings, and even broken bones, urine is an incomparable,
proven natural healing agent that provides instantaneous therapeutic
benefits under any circumstance.
For years, people have said to me, "Well, I have heard of
people surviving by ingesting their own urine, but I thought it
was just a myth." Myth it isn’t; medical fact it is.
As Dr. John R. Herman remarked in his article which appeared in
the New York State Journal of Medicine in June, 1980: "Auto-uropathy
(urine therapy) did flourish in many parts of the world and continues
to flourish today....there is, unknown to most of us, a wide usage
of uropathy and a great volume of knowledge available showing the
multitudinous advantages of this modality. Actually, the listed
constituents of human urine can be carefully checked and no items
not found in human diet are found in it. Percentages differ, but
urinary constituents are valuable to human metabolism."
Your own super supplement
In 1975, one of the founders of Miles Laboratories, Dr. A.H. Free,
published his book Urinalysis in Clinical Laboratory Practice, in
which he remarked that not only is urine a sterile body compound
(purer than distilled water), but that "it is now recognized
that urine contains thousands of compounds and as new, more sensitive
analytical tools evolve, it is quite certain that new constituents
of urine will be recognized."
As Dr. Free comments, the ingredients listed below are only a few
critical nutrients found in urine (in milligrams per day):
Alanine—38; arginine—32; ascorbic acid—30; allantoin—12;
amino acids—2.1 g/day; bicarbonate—140; Biotin—35;
calcium—23; creatinine—1.4; cystine—20; dopamine—0.40;
epinephrine—0.01; folic acid—4; glucose—100; glutamic
acid—308; glycine—455; inositol—14; iodine—0.25;
iron—0.5; lysine—56; magnesium—100; manganese—0.5;
methionine—10; nitrogen—15 g/day; ornithine—10;
pantothenic acid—3; phenylalanine—21; phosphorus—9;
potassium—2.5; proteins, total—5; riboflavin—0.9;
tryptophan—28; tyrosine—50; urea—24.5; vitamin
B6—100; vitamin B12—0.03; zinc—1.4
As you read over this extraordinary list of nutritional elements,
you can begin to understand why the stories you may have heard of
people surviving on their own urine are true. But what about other
elements in urine that you’ve heard about?
Clearing up the misconceptions
If you asked a person on the street what uric acid is, he or she
would invariably answer that it’s a toxic body waste. Not
so, say medical researchers at the University of California at Berkeley
who in 1982 reported they had discovered that "uric acid destroys
body-damaging, cancer-causing free radicals and is considered to
be one of the physiological factors that enable human beings to
live so much longer than other mammals."
But what about urea? Urea is in urine and isn’t that the
toxic stuff that causes uremic poisoning? Actually, medical researchers
discovered many decades ago that urea, far from being a toxic body
waste, is an incredibly versatile, far-reaching and effective medicinal
agent. In numerous medical studies, it was shown that urea is one
of the most potent non-toxic virucidal agents ever discovered. In
one particular study, the rabies and polio virus [sic] were killed
so quickly and efficiently by concentrated urea, that even the laconic
researchers themselves were surprised: "Urea is such a relatively
inactive substance and certainly not a protoplasmic poison such
as are most virucidal agents, that it is in a way surprising that
rabies and poliomyelitis are killed so easily by urea solutions"
(McKay & Schroeder, Society of Experimental Biology, 1936).
In reality, urea is an FDA-approved medicinal agent that doctors
and researchers utilize in an amazing variety of therapeutic modalities.
Because of its remarkable and comprehensive anti-neoplastic (anti-tumor)
properties, it’s presently being used in anti-cancer drugs
and is extensively studied for use in cancer treatments. The urea
compound drug, glicazide, is used successfully by the medical establishment
in treating both insulin-dependent and non-insulin-dependent diabetics.
As a natural diuretic, urea is unparalleled, and is a proven and
accepted treatment in cases of edema or swelling such as excess
cerebral and spinal pressure, glaucoma, epilepsy, meningitis, even
premenstrual edema and many other disorders in which excess fluid
is a problem. As one American neurosurgeon reported regarding a
patient who nearly died from complications following brain surgery:
"Urea was administered intravenously as an emergency measure.
Within 20 minutes from the start of injection, her blood pressure
had returned to normal....from this time on her recovery was uneventful.
In this case, urea was definitely life-saving, because prior to
its administration, the patient’s survival was unlikely. In
many similar instances urea was found to be life-saving" (Dr.
M. Javid, University of Wisconsin).
The medical findings on urine and urine constituents are overwhelming,
and yet it’s difficult for most people to understand why our
bodies excrete elements that are so obviously valuable to human
health and well-being.
The commonly-asked question, "If your urine is so good for
you, why does your body excrete it?" is best answered by looking
into how our kidneys function. As your blood moves through the circulatory
system, it flows through the kidneys at a rate of about 1200 ml
of blood per minute. Inside the kidneys, the blood is continuously
filtered through a huge system of minute tubules called nephron
which sift out excess water, vitamins, minerals, enzymes, salts,
and hundreds of other elements including vital antibodies, urea
and uric acid.
A large portion of these key physiological elements are reabsorbed
into the bloodstream, but a certain amount of critical blood constituents
are pooled by the kidneys into a liquid which doctors refer to as
a "plasma ultrafiltrate" (we call it urine). Much of this
sterile, nutrient filled ultrafiltrate, or urine, is reabsorbed
and some remains in the kidney for a period of time and is eventually
released into a tube called the urethra which empties the urine
into the bladder where it is finally excreted. Now you’re
probably wondering why the body excretes valuable nutrients, water,
hormones, enzymes, etc. that are critical to body functioning. Doesn’t
it make more sense to retain these elements? If urine is a collection
of such life-sustaining elements, why does the body get rid of it?
The answer is that the kidneys excrete a portion of urine as a
way of removing certain key elements in your blood that are simply
not needed at a specific point in time. For instance, you’ve
just been out jogging. You come home and have one or two big glasses
of water to drink. Now at this point you’ve probably taken
in more water than your body actually needs. But not to worry —your
kidneys will balance the amount of water delivered into your bloodstream
by your copious water drinking and through the urine will excrete
whatever amount of water from the blood that isn’t needed
at the time.
It’s a physiological fact that in order for us to function
normally, the amounts or concentrations of every element in our
blood must be carefully and strictly controlled and this is done
by the kidneys. Too much water in the blood is fatal. Too much salt
in the blood is deadly. As wonderful a nutrient as vitamin C is,
too high a concentration of it or any nutrient could kill you. This
is why the kidneys excrete valuable elements from the body—too
much of any good thing isn’t good for your health.
The same is true of urea. People who have heard of uremic poisoning
are surprised when they read the medical research showing urea to
be a widely-used, FDA-approved medicine. But just like any other
element in the blood, urea only becomes dangerous to the body when
the kidneys are damaged or diseased and can’t properly balance
the amount of urea (and all other substances) in the bloodstream.
Your kidneys aren’t doing damage to your body by getting
rid of excess nutrients, they’re just simply excreting the
precise amount not presently needed by your body at a given time.
And the same goes for practically every nutrient, enzyme, and hormone
that are critical to your survival—the kidneys keep what your
body needs at a certain time, and excretes what it isn’t momentarily
using into your urine. And as medical scientists and doctors have
discovered, these urinary ingredients extracted from the blood can
be therapeutic magic bullets.
At a time when new viruses and bacteria are outwitting even the
best efforts of space-age medicine, and increasingly frequent natural
disasters put basic necessities out of reach, the facts about the
one medical and survival tool that the FDA can’t regulate
and that’s always there when you need it most, may well become
the greatest survival lesson any of us will ever learn.

Effective MRSA treatment
This short note is a response to the MRSA article in the December,
2008 edition of The IO. MRSA (methicillin resistant staphylococcus
aureas, an anti-biotic resistant bacteria) is a worsening problem
in the prisons because the prescribed antibiotic ointments made
the sores worse.
MRSA first appeared on me several months ago when I was at FCI
McKean. I noticed on the inner portion of my arm opposite my elbow
the classic bump which is the start of the disease. To treat the
problem I applied the triple antibiotic ointment available at McKean
which only accelerated the problem because bending my arm caused
more skin-to-skin contact, spreading the MRSA even more.
A fellow inmate here at FCI Elkton was telling of how several guys
at the last place he was at were being treated for MRSA and most
of them stopped applying prescribed ointments because they only
made the sores worse. He then explained how several of them began
applying their urine to the MRSA and it went away in just a couple
So with nothing to lose and no ability for sick call until after
Christmas, I tried applying urine to the MRSA spots with my finger.
To my surprise, the MRSA was gone in about three days. In fact,
this was the fastest I had ever healed from anything my entire life.
People can say what they may but after seeing with my own eyes
how fast this took care of it, I am without doubt about our body’s
ability to cure itself or to produce what is necessary to heal if
only properly applied. Presently I am using this on some other places
where the skin under the surface is white. The substance can be
mashed out but returns. So far it appears that the infection is
being cured by the urine.
I would suggest anyone dealing with MRSA to seriously consider
this simple trick before the quacks in your medical department cause
you more problems.
