Is urine therapy something to consider for relief from the annoying sounds of tinnitus? Despite sounding wacky to some, there are staunch supporters of urine therapy for tinnitus and other health conditions. Urine therapy, also known as urea therapy, has been practiced for centuries, particularly in the East. It originated from religious rites in India and has been practiced for thousands of years.
Urine is composed of approximately 95% water, 2.5% urea (a compound formed from the decomposition of protein), and a 2.5% mixture of minerals, salt, hormones, and enzymes. Those who practice urine therapy believe that urine is not merely a waste product, but has various healthful properties.
The cause of tinnitus is often unknown, leading to the belief that it is a symptom rather than a disease. Urine therapy is thought to hold the key to resolving tinnitus due to its various properties. Urine contains minerals such as amino acids, glucose, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, urea, tryptophan, and many other vitamins and minerals crucial for promoting general health and well-being.
Supporters of urine therapy believe fervently in its ability to cure various illnesses, including cancer, diabetes, heart disease, allergies, sinus issues, dandruff, psoriasis, eczema, and more. Some even use urine for “urine pulling,” similar to the Ayurvedic practice of oil pulling.
Urine therapists believe that drinking small amounts of urine helps maintain the body’s equilibrium, provides antibodies and other particles that can fight sickness and disease, and targets the internal issues that cause tinnitus.
However, it’s important to note that there are few or no research studies supporting these health claims. Conventional medicine also denies the healing claims of urine therapy, but drinking one’s own urine is generally considered harmless unless infected with germs or consumed in large quantities.
If you wish to use urine therapy to get rid of tinnitus, there is a specific process to follow. It begins by ensuring that your private parts are clean and healthy to prevent infection. Use a clean cup or container to collect the urine. Clear urine is preferred since colored urine is acidic. To obtain clear urine, drink plenty of water and eat a diet rich in fruits and vegetables while avoiding spices.
Avoid collecting the first part of the urine stream, which may contain germs, and the last part, which may contain calcium. If you’re new to urine therapy, start with half a cup or 100ml of urine. Consider mixing equal parts urine and distilled water before drinking. You may also place a few drops of urine under your tongue for maximum absorption.
The effectiveness of urine therapy for tinnitus can only be determined by trying it out for yourself and giving it enough time to work. As with any treatment method, both alternative and conventional, results may vary.
