Natural Remedy For When Your Urine Smells Like Ammonia
When your urine smells like ammonia, it could be very alarming. There are health conditions that are related to ammonia smelling urine, but more often than not, it is a bacterial infection.
Dehydration, excess meat, and urinary stones can cause a slight ammonia smell but I still suggest people treat any ammonia smell in urine with a home remedy.
Bacteria within the body is normal. It is when the normal flora becomes out of balance that certain bacterias begin to flourish.
Ammonia smelling urine is caused from bacteria. I like to approach this from 2 sides: cleaning out the kidneys and addressing the overgrowth of bacteria (the ammonia smelling urine).
First: a kidney cleanse is very important. Our kidneys are one of the most delicate organs we have. Fear is an emotion directly related to kidneys. There is certainly no lack of fear in today’s world.
Sofia Says Fact: Listening to the news for 10 minutes every day will weaken the kidneys. You can do an in-depth kidney cleanse by reading this article here.
For a short kidney cleanse, I recommend:
- 1 Tablespoon of Pure Olive Oil, 1 raw egg, and the juice from 1 lime. Mix this up together and drink it on an empty stomach in the morning for 7 days.
- Additionally, drink 3 cups of chanca piedra tea every day for 14 days.
To address the ammonia smell:
- 1 drop of Lemongrass essential oil (oils specifically for internal use)
1 drop of Frankincense essential oil (oils specifically for internal use)
Put this in a gel cap. Do this 3x a day.If you make up 3 caps at once, make sure you store the filled ones in the freezer to prevent them from leaking.
- Take unsweetend organic grape juice and mix in 1 teaspoon Cream of Tartar. Drink morning and night.
You should notice the smell is improved within a few hours.
Continue the essential oils and cream of tartar for 3 days.
As usual, these therapies are for healthy, non-pregnant adults. These can be used with children but in different doses.
Repeat this in the future if your urine begins to smell like ammonia again.
I have found that certain people (like me) have a distortion in their MTHFR gene that predisposes them to the ammonia smelling urine. These remedies can be used in this instance as well.
If the ammonia smell continues to come back, I would recommend going on the Lemonade Cleanse for 3 days. You can stay on the cleanse longer and you will receive even greater health benefits. I have found that 3 days is long enough to tweak that gene enough where you don’t have to constantly battle the ammonia smelling urine.
