From the Back Cover
Urine therapy...is 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!
