Hello, everyone! I've red the article about urinotherapy... it said that usage of urine enemas does a miracle job with UC and even cancer. Has anybody tried it? And if yes, any results? To me, it's grouse, and I can't imaging doing it. However, in our case, whatever works has to be tried. And if it's really does a miracle, I WILL do it. Or it's just a myth? confused

I asked the same question in another set of forums and never got a reply. I was gonna try it but didn't have enough info on how to go about doing it. You find me the recipe and I'll give it a go.

I've never heard of that before, I'm going to check into that, just because I'm nosy.  also, has anyone heard of fecal bacteriotherapy, apparently this is supposed to work for people that tend to get c-diff with their UC? has anyone checked out the dr borody website,  he's in australia.

Where did you find the article about urine enemas I cant find anything about it but I'm interested because drinking urine has been hailed as a cure all in different cultures since the dawn of time,and some claim it kills cancer cells etc,and treat all sorts of allergies,auto-immune diseases,and has excellent anti-aging properties

The former Indian prime minister and a staunch hindu fundamentalist Morarji Desai who boasted to the world that he remained young and healthy because he drank 3 glasses of his own urine daily eventually died from toxemia due to the toxins in his urine.
 
I would be very cautious about the urine enema

It never ceases to amaze me what people will put up their bums. Best of luck with whatever you decide on.
