I know it is supposed to have special benefits,even though as children we were taught at school that urine is waste, I think I'm damn sure I couldn't do it.

Well, I was just watching Mind of Mencia and Carlos was doing a piece on people drinking their own urine. That's a good way to get hepatitis and I don't recommend it.

How could you get hepatitis by drinking your urine? I don't think you could get it by drinking it, if you don't have it in the first place.

That is correct, who knows the minds that tv has ruined, sometimes myths are portrayed through fact based programs that are there to help you and guide your life, either that or she meant other peoples piss!.

Actually I didn't know that. I had heard that hepatitis is spread from lack of food handlers that have enough scruple to wash their hands. I was not aware that the disease was not caused by ingesting waste. This is my something new to learn today. :)

Urine therapy refers to one of several uses of urine to prevent or cure sickness, to enhance beauty, or to cleanse one's bowels. Most devotees drink the midstream of their morning urine. Some prefer it straight and steaming hot; others mix it with juice or serve it over fruit. Some prefer a couple of urine drops mixed with a tablespoon of water applied sublingually several times a day. Some wash themselves in their own golden fluid to improve their skin quality. Many modern Japanese women are said to engage in urine bathing. The truly daring use their own urine as an enema. Urine is not quite the breakfast of champions, but it is the elixir of choice of a number of holy men in India where drinking urine has been practiced for thousands of years. The drink is also the preferred pick-me-up for a growing number of naturopaths and other advocates of "nature cures." The main attractions of this ultimate home brew are its cost, availability and portability. It is much cheaper than that other "water of life," whiskey (uisge beatha), which also has been hailed for its medicinal qualities. Unlike whiskey, however, urine is always available, everyone carries a supply at all times, and, for most people, there are no intoxicating side effects. Furthermore, the urge to overindulge is almost absent when drinking urine. The same can't be said for good single malt such as Highland Park or a good whiskey such as Black Bush. Many advocates claim that urine is a panacea. There is practically nothing it won't cure. Urine is said to be effective against the flu, the common cold, broken bones, toothache, dry skin, psoriasis and all other skin problems. It is said to deter aging and is helpful with AIDS, allergies, animal and snake bites, asthma, heart disease, hypertension, burns, cancer, chemical intoxication, chicken pox, enteritis, constipation, and pneumonia. Urine is said to be effective against dysentery, edema, eczema, eye irritation, fatigue, fever, gonorrhea, gout, bloody urine, smallpox, immunological disorders, infections, infertility, baldness, insomnia, jaundice, hepatitis, Kaposi's sarcoma, leprosy, lymphatic disorder, urticaria, morning sickness, hangover, obesity, papilloma virus, parasitoses, gastric ulcer, rheumatism, birthmarks, stroke, congestion, lumbago, typhus, gastritis, depression, cold sore, tuberculosis, tetanus, Parkinson's disease, foot fungus, and diabetes and other endocrine related diseases. Some enthusiasts see urine therapy as a divine manifestation of cosmic intelligence. They use urine to unleash their kundalini, sending it straight into the third eye, bringing instant enlightenment.* With such wondrous properties, it is amazing that science bothered developing medicine when it had the key to good health already in the bottle, so to speak. Each of us is a walking pharmacopoeia.

That's one of the craziest things I've heard in a long time. No way will I do it, and I've never done it before. I don't care what "special benefits" it's supposed to have.

This message is one year old. Wow. No, I haven't done it. I would have to be dieing and be informed that drinking my own urine would save my life. And even then, depending on where I am in my life at the time, I might just choose to die.

I've never heard of this as having special benefits. What are these supposed benefits? Regardless, unless these benefits are anything short of a MIRACLE, I don't think I'd be consuming urine...

Me thinks these supposed benefits are just from people who get off on drinking wee wee, the dirty hooooeees!

I have heard that some people said drinking the piss will cure many diseases. But I have never believed it. Piss has nothing to do with the medicine. It's the waste from our body. I am afraid drinking it will lead to an unknown harmful result in the future.

You were taught what!?!?! I have not heard that before...However I have heard that a long long time ago doctors would drink it to test blood sugar levels for diseases similar to diabetes. If the urine had a sweeter taste, not bitter, the disease was present. Yuck-to be a doctor back then...no wonder they make so much money!

I will not at all drink my urine, even if the doctor would advise me to drink. Urine is waste material from the body. If it's not, the body would not expel it. Perhaps to wash some skin infections, may be I will use urine to kill germs that could be effectively killed by components of urine. But never will I drink urine.

I never heard of drinking your own urine, but I know that urine was and can be used to sterilize things, at certain times. If you do not have a cold, and if the woman are not on their menses, the urine was used to sterilize things when fresh.. but still... yuck. - DNatureofDTrain
