Anyone who reads my health writings knows I have an overly-developed sense of humor, so let me preface today’s blog entry about using urine therapy for foot fungus problems by saying that I’m not joking with what you’re about to read.
With that said, a few years ago when I was researching natural foot fungus remedies, a suggestion came in from a friend of mine, a licensed pharmacist whose avocation lies with helping his clients by referring them whenever possible to natural solutions rather than to strong drugs.
He doesn’t make as much money this way, of course, but he helps more people and makes a lot of friends, and that’s what it’s all about anyway, near as I can tell.
Okay, here’s what my buddy told me in his letter:
Hey, Chet, between you, me, and the printer cable, the fastest and cheapest and most effective way to go after good ole foot fungus…
… use your own urine.
I know peeing on your feet in the shower sounds whacked, but I have used it effectively and passed it out dozens of times from behind the Prozac counter to customers. And with a host of positive feedback.
Well, I was glad to get this fascinating suggestion from my friend because I’ve always been interested in urine.
I mean, seriously, with so much of it coming out of us every day, how can we not be?
Although I don’t have space to write an extended blog entry on urine therapy, I do want to say that, contrary to the bad press it gets, human urine is sterile and not something filthy that we should cringe about when we mention its name.
I mean seriously, my pharmacist friend and I aren’t recommending that you drink the stuff, though people in India have been doing just that for thousands of years for apparently very good reasons. But that’s another story.
Anyway, if you have a nasty case of foot fungus and want to try the easiest and least expensive home remedy I’m currently aware of, pour or pee some of your own urine on the problem in the shower, let it set for a minute or two, and then wash it off. Repeat as necessary whenever you shower until the problem heals.
