Tibetan Urinalysis

Just as one looks into a mirror and sees an image, so does a qualified physician look into a patient's urine and from this see the disorders of a patient.

The discussion of urinalysis has many parts: preparation for urinalysis, the proper time for observation, the vessel or cup in which the urine is placed for diagnosis, and the manner in which the coloration changes due to passing through the various organs. Also, there are four general types of urinalysis: or ordinary persons without any major illness, of persons with disorders, or persons of the verge of death, and of persons affected by spirits. Thus, altogether there are eight general subtopics.


If a patient's urine is to be diagnosed in the morning, then the night before there are certain types of behavior that should be followed. One should avoid any strong tea as well as very much yogurt or any beer or alcohol. The reason for this is that taking any of these substances affects the coloring and so forth of the urine, making it difficult for diagnosis.

Furthermore, during the night preceding urine diagnosis, one should not go without liquid altogether, such that the following morning one is extremely thirsty. In other words, just be normal, take sufficient liquids so you are not terribly thirsty. One should not have sexual intercourse the night prior to diagnosis. Nor should one stay awake at night; get a good night's sleep.

One should also not go to excess in moving about or in trying to stay in just one position. Nor should one allow a great deal of tension or a great deal of thinking. Do not go to any excess prior to diagnosis.

With respect to the urine to be diagnosed, it should not be that from urinating during the time before four or five in the morning; since urination at such a time is affected strongly by the food taken the previous meal, it is not good for diagnosis. One should use the urine that builds up in the hours around four or five in the morning. If one does not urinate during the night, then do not collect the first half of the urination when you rise; use only the later half.


There are three aspects of urinalysis: color, vapor arising from the urine, and the albumin which is a cloud like substance in the urine. The time for such diagnosis is after dawn.


The vessel in which the urine is to be placed is most often a white porcelain cup which is such that its color will not affect the appearance of the color of the urine. Otherwise, an aluminum pot can be used. One should not use vessels that color the urine, such as clay, copper, brass, or any other colored pot; they make the urine appear to have another color, and it will be difficult to tell what the natural color of the urine is.

A white cup is best and not one with a pattern in it. If it is impossible to get one of these three appropriate types, one can line another type with a piece of white paper.


With respect to variations in the urine, the fourth topic, the text speaks first of the digestive process. In the stomach, food is differentiated or separated into a nutritious or more subtle part and a less nutritious or unrefined part. The refined or better part goes into the blood. The more wasteful product goes into the intestines. In the intestines it is divided in two, that is, into solid and liquid parts. The liquid portion of this waste goes from the intestines to the urinary bladder.

With regard to the separation in the stomach, the finer or more nutritious part goes to the liver. Within this, there is another separation between the more nutritious and the less, with the more nutritious part becoming blood and the less nutritious going to the gall bladder. In the gall bladder there is further separation, the finer substance becoming lymph. The more wasteful part become albumin, the cloud-like substance which appears in the urine; the albumin goes together with the urine and accumulates in the urinary bladder. It is because of this separation in the process of digestion that food which has been ingested affects or transforms the color of the urine.

The albumin, or cloud-like substance, basically appears in urine due to blood and bile problems. Therefore, the condition of the body in terms of heat and cold is indicated in the urine. Just as in the market place when a merchant has something illegal to sell and does not actually reveal it, holding it under a garment, describe it and from that you can tell what he has hidden, so from the urine it is possible to tell the types of disorder or lack thereof in a person's body.


If one looks at the urine of a healthy person, one finds that its color is more or less the bright, cheerful yellow of the butter on top of the milk from a "dri", the female counterpart of the yak [yak only being males]. The odor is like that of the cream that rises to the surface of milk. The vapor is neither terribly strong or weak, neither big or small, and the duration of the vapor- before the urine gets cooler and vapor stops- is neither terribly long or short. The bubbles or froth are nothing spectacular- neither terribly long or short, big or small, rather moderate froth on top of the urine.

The albumin, for a healthy person, is simply mixed up together with the urine, pervading it. Also, for a healthy person there is not much chyle ( the oily substance normally rising to the surface of the urine); just a little bit comes to the surface. As the vapor gradually vanishes, one finds that a little darker color converges toward the center of the cup of urine, just as breath on a mirror gradually converges in the center and disappears. After the urine has cooled off, its color is light, clear, and yellowish; it is transparent.


Concerning the urine of persons with disorders, there are two aspects to the discussion: general and specific diseased urine.



There are three times for diagnosing the urine: when it is hot, then when it is lukewarm, and finally when it is completely cooled off.

There are three times for diagnosing the urine: when it is hot, then when it is lukewarm, and finally when it is completely cooled off.

There are nine types of diagnosis that are broken down into three groups relative to the three times. First, when the urine is hot, one checks the color, the vapor, the odor, and the type of bubbles or froth. When it is lukewarm, one checks the cloud-like albumin and the oily chyle that rises to the top. When the urine is cooled off completely, one checks the time of the variation of the color, then how it changes, and finally postponed analysis. When patients are not able to come themselves, their urine is sent, in Tibet by yak, in India by other means. It is rather old by the time it arrives, and so the doctor checks anything, but with a different type of diagnosis, because the urine the older. This is called "postponed analysis".

Urinalysis when the Urine is Fresh

Color. We return to the first of the nine, the color, which is investigated when the urine is still quite hot. The urine of a person with a wind ailment ailment is like water from a mountain spring, light blue in color and transparent. A bile disorder will manifest in the urine as a more yellow, perhaps even an orangish, color. If the urine is very pale, or whitish, this indicates a phlegm disorder.

Question: Is there a difference between the blueness of the urine or wind disorder and the paleness of a phlegm disorder?
Answer: The urine of a person with a phlegm disorder is a bit milky as if someone took milk and dropped it into the urine; you cannot see through it. For the wind disorder it is very clear, like mountain spring water.

If the urine is red, it indicates a blood disorder. If the urine is rust color, this indicates a lymph disorder. If the urine is brownish, it indicates a complex disorder of all three humors- wind, bile and phlegm.

If the color is a mixture of red and yellow, it is a disorder of blood and bile. If it is a mixture of white and yellow, this indicates a disorder of both phlegm and bile. If the urine is yellow, like mustard oil, and oily, it indicates both a bile disorder and contagious disease.

If it is orange, thick, and has a foul color, this indicates a type of disorder that spreads from organ to organ or a general disturbance of the body, such as with a heat ailment. If the color of the urine is generally dark but has a spectrum of color, like a rainbow, this indicates poisoning; it could be of any variety of poisoning- mineral, meat, and so on.

Vapor. The second of the nine types of diagnosis is vapor, which is investigated while the urine is very hot. If the urine has a large vapor, this indicates a developed heat ailment. If there is little vapor but it lasts a long time, this indicates either a hidden heat ailment or an old, chronic heat ailment. If there is little vapor that lasts a short time, it is a cold ailment, involving phlegm and wind- an excess of cold in the body. If there is an alternation in the amount of vapor, then in that case there exists a combination of heat and cold disorders in the body.The vapor is seen just as, for example, you se steam rise from a cup of hot tea. Bubbles, color, and vapor are visual.

Odor. The odor of the urine is, of course, to be smelled. If the urine has a foul odor and there is albumin in the urine, this indicates a strong heat disorder. If there is either no odor or a very slight odor, this indicates a cold disorder. If the urine smells of different foods such as cabbage, meat, and so forth, this indicates that the digestion is not working properly; the digestive heat is not up to par.

Froth. If the froth or bubbles on the urine have a bluish tint and are large, this indicates a wind disorder. If the bubbles are small and many and, when stirred, pop quickly, it indicates a bile disorder. If the bubbles remain static on the surface of the urine like the bubbles of saliva, as if you spit into water, this indicates a phlegm disorder. If the bubbles have a reddish tint, this indicates a blood disorder. If they are varicolored like a rainbow, this indicates poisoning. If they form in the cup and then very quickly disband like a flock of pigeons or doves who are dive-bombed by a hawk and go off in all directions, this indicates an old disorder which now pervades the body; it has become serious.
Four points have been described for urinalysis while the urine is still hot: color, vapor, smell and froth.

Urinalysis When the Urine is Lukewarm

Albumin. When the urine has become lukewarm, one analyzes the albumin and the oily chyle. The albumin or cloud-like substance in the urine appears, for the most part, only in cases of heat disorder- illnesses of blood and bile. If, when the albumin forms in lukewarm urine, it is very subtle, like a hair on the arm, this indicates a disorder of the wind. If the albumin forms on the surface like the wool-like film on the edge of a stream, this indicates a disorder of blood and bile.

If the albumin forms subtly on the surface of the urine, like the white tips of the hairs of a rabbit, and you almost have to squint to see it, this indicates a phlegm and cold disorder. f the albumin forms like a cloudbank pervading the urine, this indicates a lung disorder such tuberculosis. If the albumin is like pus in the body, possibly in the stomach or kidneys. If the albumin congeals on the surface in little grains like sand, this indicates a disorder of the kidneys.

Remember that when albumin appears in the urine, it usually indicates a heat disorder, as it basically arises from bile and heat. If the albumin appears on the surface, this indicates a heat disorder of an organ in the upper part of the body, specifically the heart or lungs. If the albumin appears in the bottom of the urine, it indicates a disorder of the kidneys. If it is in the middle, it indicates a disorder of either the spleen or the liver. If the albumin pervades the urine, this indicates that the physical constituents as well as the heat/cold factors of the body have been disturbed, agitated by the winds.

Concerning the thickness of the albumin, if it is quite thick, this indicates a heat disorder. If it is very thin, this indicates a cold disorder, though, as mentioned above, the presence of albumin generally indicates a heat disorder.

The color of the albumin will be that of the urine of the particular person at that time. For example, a bile disorder will make the albumin orange. Or, for example, if the urine itself were like rainbow color from poisoning, the albumin would likewise be of different colors.

Chyle. If the chyle- which, being an oily substance, always comes to the surface of the urine- is thin, this indicates a cold disorder. If it is quite thick , it indicates a heat disorder.

Sometimes the oily chyle is quite thick, becoming noticeable when the urine sites for fifteen or twenty four hours, gradually congealing at the surface, like butter on Tibetan tea. If it is quite substantial, the doctor can delicately take it off the surface of the urine with a thin instrument. Then he puts a few drops of it on a hot red coal, and if its smell is like that of barley or other grains when heated, this indicates that there is a disorder that will cease by itself and thus does not need to be treated.

If the oily chyle forms on the surface in crisscrossing bands, this indicates a tumorous growth, not necessarily cancerous. This phenomena occurs for all types of tumors. Subsequent analysis will reveal what type of growth it is.

There are also times when a spirit or malignant being, a non-human being, can be recognized from this oily substance when it forms certain patterns or shapes on the surface of the urine. This is just mentioned in passing, to be discussed in detail later on.

This completes the second major section, the diagnosis to be done while the urine is lukewarm.
