Urine therapy, also known as Shivambhu or ‘self water therapy’ is known to cure many diseases. Your own urine has strengthening and curative properties; so, many herbalists and Ayurvedic doctors prescribe urine therapy for all kinds of health problems. Ringworm is no different. Many patients suffering from recurrent urine infections are believed to have been cured by using Urine therapy. As gross as this may sound, there might be a scientific basis to this therapy. Let us find out how to use urine therapy for ringworm.
What is ringworm?
Ringworm is not caused by a worm. It is a skin infection caused by microscopic fungal spores called dermatophytes. Ringworm can affect anyone irrespective of age, gender or socio-economic status. Being a contagious disease, ringworm can spread from person to person upon direct contact or sharing of personal items. It is due to this reason that school aged children are more susceptible to this infection. Here are typical signs and symptoms of ringworm:
- Redness of skin with circular rash-the rash appears circular with a central clearing. It looks like a worm under the skin.
- Outer edges of the rash are scaly, itchy and flaky.
- The rash quickly spreads from one part of the skin to another.
- It can be itchy, painful and uncomfortable. Ringworm on the face is also unsightly.
Many patients suffer from recurrent ringworm infections. For such patients, urine therapy offers promise.
Conventional treatment for ringworm
Conventional treatment for ringworm includes use of topical creams and/or oral medicines containing antifungal agents. Many times though, these medicines only show symptomatic relief; they just cure the symptoms but do nothing for treating the disease from its roots. This is where urine therapy for ringworm differs.

Urine therapy is using one’s self urine (self water) to cure all kinds of diseases.

Urine, it is said, contains the healing power to overcome all the shortcomings of the body that lead to disease in the first place. People who have been using urine therapy state that it is nothing short of a miracle ‘nectar’ which equips the body with immune strengthening properties to overcome every ailment known to man.

Some tips for internal urine therapy for ringworm
The thought of drinking one’s own urine may offend the sensibilities of many. So, it is best to start small. You can add a few drops to some juice or dilute it with water or ice. You can even mix it with some homeopathic pellets by adding a few drops of urine to them. Do not look upon urine as dirty excreta of the body; rather view it as a therapeutic elixir as mentioned in the Holy Bible 5:15- Drink water out of thine own cistern.
The common recommended dosage for urine therapy for all ailments is 2 to 3 fluid oz. It is best to take it in the morning on an empty stomach. People who drink urine regularly say it has no taste, while some feel it is a bit salty. The taste of urine depends on your diet. If you eat salty, spicy or hot foods, you will find your urine has a strong taste. This therapy can actually make you think seriously about your diet and may be instrumental in helping you change your eating habits. Cutting sugary foods and refined, preservative laden ready-to-eat meals can also help you in the long run and prevent many diseases. Urine will also taste better when your diet is rich in fruits and vegetables.
