Urine therapy during mercury chelation: is it safe?
Heavy metal detox after amalgam or palladium removal: better with or without urine treatment?
Urine therapy (UT), unsavory as it will appear to the uninitiated, has not only literally saved many lives but is also a major help and healing influence for teeth and gums. Since heavy metal chelation involves the mobilisation of mercury and other toxic metals from your body to be expelled via the kidneys1 (and liver), the question arises for UT aficionados whether urine therapy should be interrupted during heavy metal chelation (mercury. palladium etc.).
Thankfully this question has been answered by Dr. Johann Abele, MD, a German physician and one of the foremost experts and proponents of auto-uropathy in Germany.2
As we already know thanks to Martha Christy's note re mercury excretion via the urine (see Urine therapy for the healing of teeth and gum problems), under normal conditions, urine is virtually free of mercury no matter the actual mercury load of the body tissues. This of course changes in a person undergoing mercury (or other toxin) chelation.
Dr. Abele writes re the question of whether urine therapy can be used during periods of heavy metal detoxification:
"Urine therapy can certainly be done during amalgam or palladium detoxification. I do not recommend urine fasting or more than one or two cups daily at that time, but small amounts such as these actually further the detox process. Of course, injections as well as external applications of urine therapy can also be safely used due to the small quantities involved.
After DMPS injections do not drink urine for four hours or longer (until the bladder has been completely voided). When taking DMPS or DMSA3 capsules, allow a full 24 hours before resuming urine therapy."
2 Dr. Abele has successfully used uropathy (mostly via injection) for many years. He is the author of the scientific treatise on urine therapy "Die Eigenharnbehandlung" (Auto-Uropathy), which he originally co-authored with German uropathy pioneer Dr Kurt Herz MD who widely used auto-urine therapy as early as the first half of the twentieth century.
3 DMPS (2,3-Dimercapto-1-propanesulfonic acid) is a sulphuric substance which chelates (binds) various heavy metals including mercury.
DMSA (2,3-dimercaptosuccinic acid) is used to help mobilize heavy metals stored in body tissues and increase their excretion in the urine.
