    Default Urine therapy good for the skin or just plain eeks?

    recently a friend of mine claims that drinkin your own pee or urine helps in promoting beautiful skin amongst other benefits. it is apparently a well known secret amongst the tais tais and the divas. but how true is it? personally i find it hard to stomach

    here's an article for more info: http://www.heartlandhealing.com/page...urine_therapy/

    I think it's a bunch of bullsh*t. All who have taken science in school would have remembered that the function of urine is to remove soluble waste and toxins from our bodies. So essentially, you are just recycling your toxins when you drink urine.

    Heard it's popular in Taiwan too. Remembered reading an article about it quite some time ago. Some doctors were interviewed regarding the claims made by the urine-drinker. But all the doctors were skeptical about the benefits stated.

    i totally agree with jupiter_wind. in fact by doing so they are poisoning their own bodies. of all the bogus health claims i've seen, this one is the ultimate.

    Taking in the junk that's being passed out of the body would be good for the body?! This is insane!

    Urine Therapy has been used in India and some other places for over 5,000 years. Specialists say that apart from toxins it does contain some vitamins and minerals, but nothing so extraordinary that modern medicine was unable to make into supplements.

    So I think as a branch of medicine, urino therapy has become absolute at best and harmful at worst. It's my opinion, of course. I had a friend who drank her urine for gastric pain.
