Urine therapy is an age-old treatment for curing a number of disease like diabetes, obesity, skin allergy, etc. Although, this therapy has always been a matter of debate among the traditional and medical practitioners, it has gained a lot of popularity because of its positive results. Let us find more about urine therapy and its benefits in diabetic patients.
Did You know?
According to the official Xinhua news agency, more than three million Chinese drink their own urine everyday.
Urine therapy or auto-urine therapy (AUT) may sound gross to most people, but it has a long list of benefits. It is an ancient practice through which, many diseases have reportedly been cured. Urine is usually considered as the excretory product of the body. However, it is a result of plasma ultra filtrate, which is performed by the kidney to regulate the concentration of elements in the blood. These elements are filtered out of the body not because they are harmful or toxic, but because the body does not require these elements after a certain amount. It is basically composed of 95% water, 2.5% urea and 2.5% is a mixture of salt, minerals, hormones, enzymes, natural antibodies, and immune defense agents. These elements make urine beneficial in curing many diseases.
Urine therapy is said to be a part of ancient yoga and this technique is called Amaroli Mudra. The first urine of the day is considered for drinking. You need to discard the first and the last portion and drink the middle portion. This is considered the purest and is called Shivambu. People believe that daily consumption of shivambu may relieve conditions like hypertension, thyroid, asthma, skin allergies, obesity, diabetes, etc.
Urine Therapy for Diabetes
As we all know, diabetes is one of the most common diseases all over the world. Other diseases and conditions which are associated or are the result of diabetes are hypertension, diabetic retinopathy, heart disease, eye problems, etc. Therefore, it is necessary to get a control over diabetes as soon as it is diagnosed, to avoid further complications. AUT is considered one of the safest, easiest, and cheapest ways to control and prevent diabetes.
Before starting the therapy, it is very important to understand and know everything about it, as the complexity and severity of the condition may affects its results. Many people with severe diabetes may not respond well to this therapy, which may lead to side effects like diarrhea, fever, etc. In extreme cases, it might even result in uncontrolled blood sugar. To avoid this, the person should consume a lot of water, which will not only help the body to maintain the sugar level, but will also help the urine therapy to work better. Start the therapy only after consulting your doctor to avoid any complications. Your doctor will guide you more on this therapy, and will be the right person to give you details about the water consumption and other supplements, if necessary.
Apart from all the claims and the popularity, many doctors are not sure about its effectiveness in curing diabetes. Some say that drinking urine may cause kidney damage and hypertension. This is why, even the doctors who have faith in AUT do not vouch for it. But, if you still want to try urine therapy on the basis of studies, recommendation, and self-experiences, you must avoid eating and drinking substances such as spices, fried foods, junk foods, alcohol, coffee, etc., as they will neutralize the effect of AUT. Urine therapy has shown and proved its effectiveness in curing a lot of diseases and health conditions. So, we can conclude by saying that you must try urine therapy only after consulting your doctor.
