      Yes, good therapies need to be written or they will be lost with history. With recent modernization and antibiotics, people are having more problems and at much younger age. Yes, urine therapy is good for eye problems too. You can read some books on urine therapy for further details.

      Hi again,Ruchi, I would like to just suggest that maybe you go in and edit your Hub to clarify just what kind of oil one should use to gargle with. I can understand using sunflower, olive, etc. but to us in this country I believe you could be misunderstood. I thought of motor oil when I first read this.

      Sorry, but I'm not drinking my urine unless I'm dying of thirst.

      Hi Mary, oil like sunflower, olive or any cold pressed oil will work. It is best to gargle early in the morning and throw the oil out.

      About urine therapy, yes, it is very powerful in healing our body and arthritis too. On many occasions, when I could not recover from doctor's medicine, I just used this simple therapy. I am amazed by its results.

      Thanks for your feedback.

      What kind of oil would you gargle with? I've heard of people drinking their urine when they were dying of thirst, but not for this purpose.

      Anyways, this was interesting. I do agree that vinegar and honey would be good.
