Urea is a compound that has been shown to have a variety of therapeutic uses. It can easily penetrate cells, helping to soothe cell excitation and adjust the electronic balance. This mechanism is similar to how progesterone and thyroid hormones work, regulating the ion exchange system and electronic affinity for water, and reducing water binding.
Urea has been used in the treatment of several types of cancer, such as liver cancer, eye cancer, and certain skin cancers. It has also been used to relieve edema, particularly in the legs of patients with congestive heart failure. In addition, urea has been found to be effective in reducing brain edema, and has even been shown to help people recover from traumatic brain injury and stroke. Urea has also been used to treat sickle cell anemia by preventing cell hardening and stiffness.
Urea has been used to prevent damage in heart surgery, as well as to stabilize normal tissue and prevent the formation of deforming scars. It can even be applied directly to wounds or ulcers to clear up infections and stimulate healing, without leaving visible scars.
When used in cancer treatment, urea’s ability to regulate water and pH levels is particularly important, as uncontrolled cell division can lead to a range of issues, from cancers to skin diseases like psoriasis. By reducing excess nitric oxide, urea can also help restore energy production.
Urea has very low toxicity and is generally well-tolerated. However, it is important to note that avoiding polyunsaturated fats (P.U.F.A) can help maintain the proper amount of urea formation. While urea is not an osmolyte, it remains an important compound with a wide range of potential therapeutic uses.
