Re: Can anyone explain this apparent contradiction?
That does help clear up a lot.
I found this, as well:
"How can it make sense to reintroduce into the body a fluid that it just has expended considerable effort to eliminate? A short and simple explanation: Urine comprises the sum of all the experiences that the body has had (much as our individual personalities comprise the sum of our experience). Records of disturbances, infections, diseases, and allergies are stored within our urine. If we confront our immune system with this information for a second time, we stimulate the construction of a (finally) effective defense. Urine therefore teaches the immune system a lesson."
which really has UT sounding like a form of homeopathy, as I'd been thinking.
I still find it odd to consider, that given so many people are loaded with chemicals and drugs, as many as seem to, could find benefits for UT.
At what seems like the other end of the spectrum -from the average SAD-eating person- the more pure Indian practises of UT immediately make a lot of sense. They seem to be
combining UT with very balanced ways of eating, thinking, being. Looking at it from this perspective, I can easily see urine as more akin to blood, (in its makeup) than feces*.
* Non-infant, that is. I've just learned about infant feces being the best source of probiotics...yet another level beyond the usual comfort zone.
