Book Description

1 July 1971
In this revolutionary treatise, J.W. Armstrong puts the compelling case that all diseases (except those caused by traumatism or structural disorders) can be cured by one simple means. The therapy is an entirely drugless system of healing that treats the body as a whole. Moreover, the only ingredient needed is a substance manufactured in the body itself, rich in mineral salts, hormones and other vital substances, namely human urine. It may seem strange to take back into the body something that the body is apparently discarding. Yet the theory is similar to the natural practice of organic composting. Fallen leaves, when dug back into the soil, provide valuable mineral salts to nourish new plant life. The same principle holds true for the human body.

4.0 out of 5 stars Is he taking the......? 15 Jun 2006
According to the writer, drinking your own urine is a vitally effective method of curing a variety of illnesses. What?!

First written in the 1930s, the writer recounts his experience of travelling around the area to treat people, with a growing reputation. I wonder what his skill was, as the treatment is simple (drink it). He explains the theory (which has overlaps with homeopathy) and his own practice. The many case studies bear many similarities and become a little samey. I also found they were uniformly successful, which testd by belief a little.

Having said that, I found this absolutely fascinating and am pleased to see the book reprinted, as it was previously difficult to obtain. Certainly this overturning of many previously believed concepts deserves attention. A growing uropathy movement is establishing itself, and it seems some cultures have practiced it for years.

This book will certainly make you think!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Treatise on Urine Therapy 7 April 2011
By Bill
Some ten years ago I was diagnosed with COPD, a term applied to chronic respiratory conditions ranging from bronchial asthma to emphesemia.
Despite all my best efforts and applying various techniques from acupressure to chi kung all I seemed to achieve was some delay in the worsening of my symptomns.
Then one day I read about urine therapy, and - sinse one of my relatives is an enthusiastic advocate of this practice I thought, why not.
My inhalors were doing little good and were becoming increasingly inefectual so I had little to lose.
Three weeks into this treatment and my use of medication has fallen dramaticly, for the first time in years I have enjoyed several nights of uninterrupted sleep and I know that a complete cure is only a matter of time.
Would I recommend this somewhat unorthodox approach to anyone seeking relief from some troublesome medical condition? Too right I would.
The EU can abolish all the herbal medicines it wants in its scandelous pandering to lobbying from the pharmeceutical companies but here is one source of medicine that they cannot impose any controls upon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blew my mind wide open! 26 May 2001
By A Customer
This book is written by a guy with first hand experience of using and treating people using Urine Therapy. He's not quoting from other people's research. He's simply summarising the amazing results he has achieved in seriuos diseases such as cancer. Even gangrene can be cured, he has found out. Full of general wisdom about how to live a healthy life, this book must be read by anyone who wants to save the health service billions of pounds, wants to try to cure themselves of an illness, or who simply wants to learn about one of the greatest "secrets" life has to offer.

This is just a little book, but packed with unbelievable knowledge and wisdom about an ancient therapy, which has been practised all over the world for thousands of years, including in hospitals in London,England (see Martha Christy's book: Your Own Perfect Medicine) - but sadly side-lined in our present time.
John Armstrong cites many case histories and advises how to use urine therapy - externally and internally.
On first reading I could not believe what I was reading - but family and friends having tried it and seen the effects....we find it an amazing font of knowledge - glad to have come across it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting read 5 Mar 2011
By ShanRay
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My mother of 82 has been doing this for over 30 years, and she is soooo fit (more so than me) still plays Saxaphone, Clarinet, and paints large Oils on canvas... has never been sick, apart from the fact that she is a vegetarian anyway. So like they say, "The proof is in the pudding!"
May not be everyone's taste (pardon the pun) but deffinitely works.

5.0 out of 5 stars unexpected source of cure 24 Nov 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book was first given to me by my step sister-in-law and she was very enthusiastic about it and so I read it. At the time I had a sore throat which didn't go away until I tried this urine therapy and then, shortly after, my sore throat cured. I was impressed with the simple sincerity of the author of this book and I made a promise to myself that if ever I had serious health problem that I would surely try this remedy first. About 9 years later someone close to me died from 'prostate cancer' and when I looked up about this disease found that I had all the symptoms. Of course I bought a copy of this book again and started the urine therapy. After 3 months of this the symptoms receded and, as bonus, I had more uninterrupted hours of sleep during the night. I can definitely say that what this guy wrote about in this book seems to be true. I can unequivocally recommend this book to anyone. Amazing.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Water of Life; Treatise on Urine Therapy 17 Jan 2013
By Clive
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is clear and concise and I loved it, we all should be making use of our urine for health, Your own body has the cure for what ails you, one teaspoon of urine to two of distillled water, hold under your tongue for a few minutes then swallow. This allows the glands to inspect the instructions in the urine/distilled water and produces the correct antibodies to cure you. This is not medical advise, I am not a doctor, this is what I have discovered by reading the book and research on the internet.
