“Shivambu” or Urine Therapy with Brother Sage
41:26Is it healthy to drink urine? What are the risks and advantages of doing so? Many individuals are debating whether or not Urine Therapy is genuinely beneficial. Urine Therapy also includes healing from within for you to have a better living. By meditating, self-care, and calming your energy down, you'll have a more precise place or a new canvas that you can paint your new painting or create the next phase of your life. People who are firm in their urine treatment practice, who have unwavering faith, are attracting all of these people who have given up on the medical industry. But some of those who talk about urine therapy fail their clients because they don't address the four pillars of health: mental, physical, spiritual, and emotional. To level up and increase the quality of your life, you must purify your mind of all unconscious death stuff, self-destructive impulses, self-hatred, and everything else that is cruel and unloving to yourself. In this episode of the Yogahealer Podcast, Cate Stillman talks with Brother Sage about Shivambu and Urine Therapy. He will share the science behind it and why the centuries-old practice works.
Urine Therapy: The Miracle Drug That No One Has Told You About
48:05What do you think of urine therapy to detoxify toxins out of your body? Before saying, “That’s so weird and gross!”, have an open mind and learn how our guest, Darlene Teahen, explained the benefits one can get through urine therapy. The “disgusting” thoughts born from the idea of utilizing urine therapy sprouted from our upbringing. When you were a child, your parents would make funny faces upon seeing your poop or when you urinated your underwear. That continued until we reached adulthood, and we now associate the word ‘urine’ with dirty. But since antiquity, Vedic practitioners have been drinking urine. And it worked for them! Now in the modern era, what if I tell you that urine can be another source of stem cells? Or urine therapy is your gateway to accessing “life vibration”, achieve inner peace and harmony, and form a deeper connection with yourself? From injecting to nebulizing urine, listen to this fascinating episode as Darlene Teahen delves into her thesis, “Culture Plasma Ultrafiltrate as Therapy in the role of involved vitals for stronger immunity and lifeforce.” What you’ll get out of tuning in: What is Urine Therapy Plant Medicine - specifically Ayahuasca Energy Medicine Sound Frequency Healing How urine therapy helps you connect with the “life vibration” and find a deeper connection within yourself. Why it’s perfectly fine to use your own urine as a source of stem cells rather than acquiring it from others. How early childhood conditioning affects a person’s perception of feces or urine being associated with “dirtiness”. How urine therapy detoxes “toxins” out of the body and why anxieties, nausea, pain, etc. are toxins being expelled. Why urine therapy is frowned upon and not thoroughly explored by holistic practitioners due to the fear of rejection from society and culture.

They’ve all done it, it’s over 3000 years old, and yet we are just waking up to it.” -- [Darlene] “I'm grounded. It's that peace and love you've never felt before. I'm working on the chakras and pulling things up. And it's so much easier now to feel what is going on because I can connect at that subtle level.” -- [Darlene] “To me, this is our future where medicine is going. And we can all produce individualized medicines for ourselves by ourselves.” -- [Darlene] “One of the disadvantages of the one-on-one practitioner-patient or client relationship is that there's not a community of people who are evolving together.” -- [Cate]
