In this revolutionary treatise, J W Armstrong puts the compelling case that all diseases (except those caused by traumatism or structural disorders) can be cured by one simple means: urine therapy. The therapy is an entirely natural treatment, a drugless system of healing that treats the body as a whole. Moreover, the only ingredient needed is a substance manufactured in the body itself, rich in mineral salts, hormones and other vital substances, namely human urine. It may seem strange to take back into the body something that the body is apparently discarding. Yet the theory is similar to the natural practice of organic composting. Fallen leaves, when dug back into the soil, provide valuable mineral salts to urish new plant life. The same principle holds true for the human body.
As a young man during WW1, J W Armstrong was diagnosed as suffering from TB. Following two years of unsuccessful medical treatment, he started a course of urine therapy and was cured within two months. Following this success, he was encouraged to set up his own private practice and includes many of his patients' remarkable case studies in this book.
