Not all things drained in the toilet are waste. Quite a number of marketable products can be made from these materials that are disposed together with the waste. All that’s needed is to recycle or separate these beneficial ingredients such as uric acid, creatinine, phosphates, magnesium, nitrogen, sodium, ammonium, sulphates, chloride, water, urea, potassium, and calcium from its waste. And with little knowhow, they can be made into gunpowder, fertilizer, medicine, and brain cells.
The urgent need to pee
Wastes accumulate in our body. And for the healthy functioning of the body, they should be disposed of promptly. That’s the reason why nature calls us to pee.
While so doing, blood flows through the various structures and organs of our body, with every cell faithfully performing their assigned duties of properly disposing waste matters from and putting back nutrients into the bloodstream during the so-called process of metabolism. . In a normal human, about 20% of the blood flows through the kidneys every minute.
In the kidneys, two of them, about 5 inches long and 3 inches wide each, millions of microscopic filters called nephrons filter to clean the blood more than 400 times a day.
Valuable parts of the blood, like sodium, water and glucose that were filtered clean through the kidneys are put back into the bloodstream via the filtering or cleaning process.
The waste product is stored in the bladder as urine or pee, and is ejected out of the body when nature calls us to pee. But this urine or pee has nitrogen, urea, potassium and magnesium, which if harnessed, can be fashioned into useful things. Indeed, ingenious individuals have developed beneficial uses of their urine.
Here’s the formula for the making of gunpowder, with the elements and value in percentage: 75% potassium nitrate, 15% charcoal and 10% sulfur.
Charcoal made from wood and sulfur excavated from the ground around volcanoes have been relatively easy to obtain, but sources for potassium nitrate are quite hard to find. Bat poo called guano in caves is an excellent potassium nitrate, but this element isn’t readily available.
A website todayifoundout.com has described the followings ways to produce potassium nitrate:
“The French method involved manure, ashes, straw and urine mixed and tended together for months, perhaps even a year, then filtered through more ashes and a bit of water. The Swiss method, involved placing a sandpit directly under a stable; only the urine made it into the sand, which would be harvested and filtered in the same manner as the French method. Either way, it had to be a tough job.
“Gun enthusiasts today enjoy making their own gunpowder. For the potassium nitrate, one recommended process is to put a lot of manure in a large drum with a drain, valve and filter screen installed at the bottom. Pee into it. Then add water for a total of about 300 gallons of yuck. Place it in a safe spot far away from the house. After 10 months, pour it out into shallow trays to dry.
“With a mortar and pestle or hand-cranked mill, grind charcoal to a powder and set aside. Do the same with sulfur, which can be purchased in home and garden stores. Finally, grind the potassium nitrate. Experts warn not to grind the ingredients all together, since that would possibly explode in your hands.
“For storage, the best minds suggest mixing the three powders together then adding a little stale urine so the mixture has the consistency of biscuit dough.”
As mentioned in todayifoundout.com, human pee is an excellent fertilizer because of the presence of nitrogen in correct proportion. Since the myth that pee is sterile had been busted, it recommends that pee be stored first in a covered container for 6 months before use, instead of going to the garden to piss on the soil.
The same source advised that urine from individuals suffering from urinary tract infection or is taking a medication isn’t suitable for fertilizing use. Some find it gainful to use pee to fertilize fruits and vegetables, but same website recommended that it not be used around root vegetables.
Finally, it recommends using your high nitrogen urine only once or twice a month, as too much nitrogen can reduce yield, hurt the plants, and can even kill them.
Shivambu Shastra or Self-Urine Therapy is a method of drinking one’s urine for rejuvenation as used by Indian yogis. Urine Therapy says commercial medical applications of urine and urea in use today include:
Pergonal is fertility drug used to treat fertility issues in women, which is derived from ovulation-enhancing hormone in human urine;
Ureaphil, a diuretic made from urea
Urofollotropin, a urine-extract fertility drug
Ureacin, a urea cream for skin problems
Amino-Cerv, a urea cream used for cervical treatments
Premarin, a urine-extract oestrogen for skin ulcers, burns, infected wounds, and other purposes
According to Urine Therapy, self-urine may be used as eye drops and ear drops, in foot baths and even as effective enemas. Nose drops can help loosen mucus and clear up blocked nasal passages. Gargling with it is helpful for a sore throat, and inhaling it relieves sinus and respiratory congestion. Taken internally, it has a laxative and diuretic effect, as it cleanses the digestive tract.
Moreover, according to Urine Therapy, Shivambu Shastra or Self-Urine Therapy is said to be effective in over 175 health conditions. Urine can be massaged topically for the most chronic and stubborn skin problems, such as acne, eczema, psoriasis, ringworm, sores, fungal infections, insect bites, wounds, burns and even gangrene. Internally, the therapy is said to be effective in treating AIDS (since the AIDS antibodies are found in urine) as well as cancer, chronic fatigue syndrome, anaemia, all sorts of urinary diseases, weight loss, colds and flus, candida, diabetes, digestive problems, jaundice and more.
It has been medically proven to work against polio and tuberculosis, and doctors have injected it intramuscularly to treat immunological illnesses such as psoriasis, basal cell carcinoma and asthma, to name a few.
Urine Therapy disclosed that more than 600 scientists –many of whom believe that human urine can treat everything from baldness to cancer and AIDS– gathered in Goa, India, for the First World Conference on Auto-Urine Therapy in February 1996. The Second World Conference on Auto-Urine Therapy was held in Germany in 1998.
As mentioned in Shivambu Shastra, Author of The Water of Life Dr John Armstrong emphasizes the need to massage with urine. He insists that cures work faster and more effectively in those who are bathed, massaged, rubbed and soaked in their own urine. He highly recommends it for more serious illnesses, since urine is absorbed through the skin and the hormonal and protein-based contents are slowly reabsorbed into the system, bypassing digestive juices that otherwise may have neutralized their potency. In this way, it also works as an excellent cosmetic for moisturizing and healing skin blemishes, burns and scar tissue. However, for this usage, it is preferable to use urine that is 4-8 days old. The smell of ammonia in the old urine is not toxic but actually beneficial if used topically only, and not taken internally.
Today I Found Out Website, disclosed that scientists have developed new method for generating brain cells from urine, speeding up the process and eliminating some of the problems with previous techniques. Some ingenuous scientists have found a way to make neurons out of human pee. Actually, they transform a few ordinary cells found in urine into neural progenitor cells. This new pee-technique takes only half of the time of other pluripotent stem cell making methods. Applying another process, the neural progenitor cells turn into functional neurons in short order. When inserted into baby lab rat brains, the pee-generated cells operate properly and do not produce tumors.
It is anticipated that this new method can be expanded to create other kinds of cells, and that eventually, these pee cells will be used to treat a number of different human conditions, it said.
