The book also describes some unusual and interesting applications of UT by people in different countries, especially aborigines.
P.S. It's true, propolis masks the taste and smell of urine. I just tried it!

Propolis in urine therapy - patent
"It was also found that the present solid product could favorably be used as
an agent for imparting flavor to foods and pharmaceuticals, as well as a
deodorant and agent for urine therapy.
Urine therapy, also known as uropathy, is described in Kiseki ga okoru
Nyo-Rycho, edited by Ryoich Nakao, published by Makino Publisher, Tokyo,
Japan (1990). According to this book, it has been known that health can be
maintained and improved, and that diseases can be prevented and treated,
by daily drinking about 100-200 mL of urine. It has also been known that
such effects will be expected in proportion to the intake of urine without
causing any side effects.
The unpleasant smell and taste of urine, however, prevent most persons from
trying urine therapy. Alternatively, the unpleasant smell and taste of
urine make persons reluctant to drink urine directly.
It was found that the solid product of the present invention, when
dissolved in fresh urine, readily dispersed or dissolved in the urine and
imparted a propolis flavor to the urine, diminishing the unpleasant smell
of urine while improving the taste of the urine and augmenting the urine
therapy. Thus, the solid product of the present invention can
advantageously be used as an agent for urine therapy. These objectives are
attained by using about 0.1-5 g of the solid product of the present
invention in 100 mL of fresh urine."
