i will also like to add that drinkin your urine when on menses is completely safe and harmless.. theres nothing in the menstrual fluid that is harmful to the body if it happened to be reingested with your urine..
I'd recommend listening to oneradionetwork show by this researcher on heavy metal detoxing he doesn't recommend using cilantro spirulina etc worth a listen anyway for an alternative view...
Have you heard also of boyd Haley? and OSR?
he has been interviewed by oneradionetwork also...
I heavily do UT too and plan to post on the topic when I've read all the way through :)
Have a listen to Dr David Jubb on this very topic... it is a 2 hour show will post link soon :)
he mentions that lungs, skin and No. 2's are much larger detox regions than the urine tract and should not be an issue...
Here is my response to the heavy metals question. After reading this, watch this video to see what I am talking about: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0WnQ6cfKrPU . Use a small pinch of Borax in an ounce of water to detoxify the fluoride in your body. Use an Iodine Tincture, and paint it on your feet bottoms at night 4 times a week before bed which will administer Iodine at safe levels into your body, and it will draw out the heavy metals and fluoride through the pores of your feet. Also, be sure to be taking Magnesium Chloride, Calcium, and Lecithin(found in egg yolk) supplements to replace what the Iodine draws out. According to the famous Edgar Cayce and his 4-element-theory, we are only made of four elements which make everything else: water, salt, soda, and iodine, and humans today simply have severe iodine deficiencies which leads to heavy metal build-up and disease. Also, to maintain the benefits, drink only pure distilled water. Also, maybe urine therapy should be practiced with a day on day off type of scenario, but I am still experimenting to figure out proper dosage for the highest levels of efficiency. Now, watch the video and be amazed. This was a similar question I had, and I think this is the answer to practicing urine therapy SAFELY without re-administering your body with the same heavy metals over and over. Diet is key with successful Urine Therapy. As Dr. Delbert Blair states, we are only products of what we eat, drink, and think. * Hint: Here is where I figured out how to make my own Iodine tincture incredibly cheap: http://www.ehow.com/how_5933391_make-iodine-tincture.html , and here is where I purchased the kelp: http://www.vitacost.com/Starwest-Botanicals-Organic-Kelp-Powder . This is where I get my Borax: http://www.acehardware.com/product/index.jsp?productId=3006766 . I bought 2 bottles of Magnesium Chloride and 2 lbs of organic kelp with a bottle of Gotu Kola, and the total cost was $32 after shipping. Enjoy UT SAFELY!!
Sounds good info will definitely check this out.
BTW Dead Sea Salts from Waitrose are minimum 47% MgCl and are completely natural and about £10 for a kg. Also Bishoffit (spelling?) salts from Russia are mainly MgCl and are about £2 for 500ml in Russia though :)
