The Diary of Samuel Pepys

The Diary of Samuel Pepys

Daily entries from the 17th century London diary

Here on Samuel Pepys diary website some people discuss the many uses for Urine in the Annotations. Mind you this is in the 17th century when  products and medicine was still in it's infancy. However today with all the medicine cocktails people take, adding or subtracting a medicine can have harmful effects as we are all created differently and could possibly react different.

So much of modern medicine is trying to sell a newly discovered medicine, in TV commercials they spend a good portion describing all the horrid possible side effects one could encounter by trying this new medicine. Which often is worse than the ailment!

Most people don't realize that modern medicine has only been around about 100 years or so, Eastern medicine has been around for about 2000 years. It has been only in the last decade or so that doctors are starting to incorporate some time tested traditions of Eastern Medicine into their own practices. Increasing their chances of helping their patients.  Look at the use of Acupuncture needles in physiotherapy for example.

Only when we start taking our own health into consideration like they did back in Samuel Pepys's day, we start to understand that our health and healing is also in our own hands. Keep in mind you should always consult with a doctor. Yet the best doctor is the one inside you, and that internal doctor doesn't have a prior agreement with a pharmaceutical company to sell you only their brand(s) of medicine!

This website is full of examples of people who have taken control of their health using this ancient treatment. We understand that it may not be the most popular treatment there is, yet what if it could help you out in the long run. Reduce colds and other factors that can weaken your immune system.

A good short read and another person's take on urine therapy!
