I have been fond of urine therapy for many years but except as a homoeopathic remedy, I have rarely mentioned it to patients as our social conditioning invariably prompted a strong negative reaction.
The many and varied case histories described by John Armstrong in his ‘The Water of Life’ are certainly impressive. However, this book was first published fifty years ago, Armstrong did not have any academic qualifications and without the strong support of other therapists, there were not many convincing reasons for patients to try this method.
This has changed dramatically in recent years with the publication of the several more books on urine therapy. Very good are the self-published books by Martin Lara, ‘The Miracle of Urine Therapy’ by Dr Beatrice Bartnett and especially ‘Your Own Perfect Medicine’ by Martha Christy.
