Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Urine an ancient Eastern tradition which is gaining popularity in the West. Devotees, who include the actress Sarah Miles, claim that it is the oldest of natural remedies and swear by its health enhancing properties. The venerable former prime minister of India, Morarji Desai - who was 99 and in excellent health when the author met him in 1994 - was open about the fact that he drank a glassful of his own urine every day. It was while he was in India in 1990 that Coen van der Kroon was given the opportunity to experience the therapy's benefits first hand, following an accident. Afterwards, he embarked on a long journey around the world to research its history, uses and efficacy. The Golden Fountain, the most complete book to date on urine therapy, is the result of those wide-ranging investigations. The author tackles his subject with sensitivity and conviction. He provides a comprehensive overview of urine therapy's history throughout the world, together with detailed case histories and a user-friendly guide to its practical application in relation to specific ailments. Swami Pragyamurti Saraswati, a strong advocate of urine therapy who teaches in London, has written an authoritative foreword to the book while individual accounts from people who have tried it and found it beneficial add a fascinating personal touch. As an intriguing do-it-yourself home treatment, urine therapy is often the subject of lively debate, but there's one thing that everybody agrees upon. It's absolutely free!

I won't go into the actual chapter by chapter content of this book, as reviewer 'Tepi' has already done an excellent job of that, but having steeled myself to try this therapy I have a few words to say regarding the effects.

Firstly - it works. I don't believe this to be a placebo effect, as I've tried many other remedies for various ills, and none have delivered the amazing results that urine therapy has in just three months. My previously constant urinary tract irritation has disappeared at last, and my body feels much stronger. Recently I took an overseas trip where I was surrounded by people with the flu - starting with all the air hostesses on the way out and culminating with most of my family upon my return. I didn't catch it, which for me is quite amazing, especially considering the stress I was under.

I find it perplexing that some reviewers and 'medical experts' are so dismissive of this therapy - claiming that there is no scientific evidence to prove that it works. This seems to fly in the face of the fact that urine derivatives are used in a host of medicines that are prescribed by 'medical experts', and bought over the pharmaceutical counter by countless 'normal' people who would never entertain the idea of ingesting their own urine. However, horse urine or urine from other people (or derivatives thereof) are deemed (perhaps unknowingly) as perfectly acceptable. Go figure!

My advice to all of you out there who are suffering from chronic ailments that are unresponsive to orthodox therapy is - go and buy this book, read it, and give the therapy a go. After all - what do you have to lose? Even the most rabid 'expert' detractors will admit that it does no harm.

I was enormously impressed by this book. Its author strikes me as a responsible and highly intelligent person who has made an important discovery and wishes, for humanitarian reasons, to make it known to the world.

Kroon first became interested in urine therapy in India after sustaining a serious injury to his foot. When instead of healing, the foot gradually grew worse, someone suggested that he use urine compresses. Having nothing to lose he decided to give it a try - and it worked! He then set about researching the subject, both in India and the West, and 'The Golden Fountain - The Complete Guide to Urine Therapy' brings us the fruits of his research and his years of practical experience.

Although not a large book it's packed with an enormous amount of fascinating and valuable information, too much to even begin to adequately describe. After a brief Introduction, Kroon takes up the history of Urine therapy in both the West - where it was used to cure innumerable complaints in earlier centuries - and in the East.

Urine, we learn, has anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-viral, and anti-cancer properties. Also, by strengthening the immune system and correcting the imbalance which underlies most disease, it can in many cases help to cure just about anything, and it has other valuable properties too.

A chapter on Applications is included which describes the various ways urine can be used, both internally and externally, to promote health, beauty, longevity, and even sexual potency! Detailed instructions are given on drinking, bathing, gargling, douching, eye and ear drops, sniffing, massage, compresses, rubbings, foot and hip baths, scalp and hair massages, and other applications.

For those who find drinking one's own urine revolting, then why do you eat meat products which have rotten blood (urine comes from blood that is alive) and bacteria from the animals intestines (beef and pork) which permeates and "ages" the meat and makes it taste good?

Urine is liquid which has been flowing through your veins in the past few minutes and is filtered of impurities by the liver and passed on to your bladder as antiseptic and has no bacteria in it as does the blood and meat of the beef, pork, chicken and other animal products you eat. Urine has no connection to the fecal material that is processed in a different manner and those who try to connect the two are unable to reason correctly.

Ingesting urine was a very difficult decision but after doing a lot of research I finally took the plunge, so to speak. Within three weeks the athlete's foot condition that I've had for 60 years disappeared (yeah, I tried the oral prescription medicine for six months, and had toenails removed, and that didn't work), pre-cancer conditions have both disappeared and receded (as verified by a dermatologist), burning eyes and night sensitivity to light - a 70+ year condition - are totally gone. There are also many other benefits I could mention but these are just a few, and this is after just two months of using it.

For those who want to upchuck at the thought of drinking their own urine, then why has it been done with significant benefits with no adverse effects for thousands of years? Our Western view of "dirt" has produced a sick, antiseptic, antibiotic world which is producing super disease that the drug companies can no longer keep up with. When you lose your health (which many who read this will eventually do) you will kick the MD's in their wallet and seek real healing modularities of which urine therapy is but one.

This is by far the best book there is on the subject of urine therapy.
