Auto-Urine Therapy
The About.com urban legends forum has a thread going about auto-urine therapy, which translates into 'drinking your own urine'. Is there really a thriving urine-drinking subculture? Well, yes. As the poster points out, all you have to do is google 'drinking your own urine' and you get all kinds of hits. The reason urine-drinking has so many fans is that it's supposed to offer numerous health benefits, including improving the immune system, giving you nice skin, acting great as a gargle if you have gum disease, and having very powerful anti-aging properties. I think I've mentioned before somewhere on my site that I have personal experience with this urine-drinking subculture. NOT that I've ever drunk the stuff myself (and I definitely never plan to). But I do have a relative who, according to family scuttlebutt, used to do it. She was into all the new-age, alternative medicine stuff like that. In her defense I have to say that she's now approaching 90 and is still in excellent health. In fact, she could probably pass for a sixty-year old. So maybe there's something to it (though I've still got no plans to try it out). I'm actually going to her house on Christmas day for dinner. I don't plan to sample the apple juice in her fridge.

Hello! I have been researching this for months, and am more and more inclined to take the plunge into ingesting it. Currently I use URO externally for my skin. I have noticed that there is an obvious glow and blemish control that comes with this. I store my morning urine for a few days, and in the morning and in the evening I rub liberally on my face and neck. At first I was freaked out, naturally. Western culture has done a fine job terrifying us of ourselves. With all that I have tried to treat my moderate acne, i figured why not use something natural from my own body. Im glad I did. Now I am obsessed with knowing more. I am interested in using URO for more than vanity purposes, and am excited to see the responce ingestion will have on my anxiety, depression, and overall stagnet health. I think the real key to taking this sort of plunge is a commitment to understanding, researching, and bravery. This is truly a practice for the brave, the aware, and the strong.

I have been reading about urine therapy and I'm extremely open minded so I tried it. I have found that I am addicted to it and even went so far as to do the urine enema. My body feels great and I am definitely sexually turned on by this and feel more energy than I have ever felt. I am a 40 year old female who works in the health care system. I did my research and if you do yours also and get over your inhibitions, you will find the same thing happening to you too!! I drink it - almost every time I go - even at work. I do the enema once a day - which I am able to hold because it just absorbs in and I do the massage on my skin - including my face. I have just started this one week ago and I just feel great!!! I also do the mouthwash gargle (with urine!!!) for the benefit of destroying bacteria in the gums. I'd love to be able to pee directly in my own mouth, but I'm not built that way! I wish I could see that one guy do it - that's a turn on. Oh by the way, every boyfriend I have had and one girlfriend (even two husbands) have delighted in showering me with their streams - in the shower of course!!!! Told you - I'm open minded!

Does ingesting one's early morning urine everyday cause an awful body odour?

I love drinking my wife's pee. I try to drink a bladderful every second morning or so when we shower together. sometimes I manage to get most of it down - it comes our pretty fast. I get it straight from her and then immediatley perfom oral sex on her, so she gets an orgasm as a bonus. We love it !

Heard piss is good for your health from many people. Found out that the amniotic fluid when you are a baby is made from your piss, so you live in your piss for the first months of your life in the womb. If it is used for your birth, for you to develop and form, maybe it has some qualities that are good. I just read eating turds saves the lives of people with intestine probs 95% of the time and our government is spending $115 billion to research,, maybe they can use some funds to research drinking piss. may have to give it a try,, but man,, it sounds disgusting

it is cleaner to bathe in your urine than water. Grose but true

Go ahead, re-ingest metabolic waste products, kill yourself
There's a reason you pee in the first place

Ladiesman in Hollywood, ca. No joke!? You are an urologist? With "famous" people? Pity you cannot even spell their names or spell in general. You also have no knowledge of English grammar. This post is from a person for whom English is second language, yet I seem to be doing better than this "ladiesman".

"Urban legend"?

In Europe, at least, this has been known for many generations. I learnt about it from my grandmother, and she learnt it from her grandmother. My grandmother's skin and hair at age 74, when I last saw her before moving far away, was the envy of many women.
The same is true of my own skin and hair.
Using urine daily instead of tonics and creams certainly hasn't damaged it, as far as I can see.

I am very healthy anyway, so I don't know how NOT drinking urine would have affected my health. In the past fifteen years it certainly hasn't harmed it.

The squeamishness of people, not to mention their ignorance, is the funniest of all.
They gobble jello - made from dead cows' bones - and smear their faces with cosmetic creams containing cow's piss, but they are afraid of their own urine?

And how does this qualify as a "hoax", anyway?

I am sorry for all those who are victims of their own mental limitations.
But I have learnt that is about as much as I can do.

Its only been 3 days. That's all, maybe its a placebo, maybe its actually real. But here's a personal story.

After being a devotee of the role of the "Super-successful-young-alpha-male" (James Bond style, you know)

Last year, at the age of 29, I've had the shingles.

Yes, your "lovely" western medics will say its RARE. That usually its only OLD people. Or people with low immune systems (Like cancer or aids) Then they'll rush into giving you that Zovirax or that injection.

Some reading online will make you find out that its just another lie. Their Chickenpox vaccine is "In-directly" responsible for a growing phenomena of YOUNGER PEOPLE WITH SHINGLES. Why? How? well, Shingles / Herpes zoster is the same virus as the Chicken Pox, hence since there are hardly any kids around with chickenpox in the western world;
There is hardly any exposure, and without the slightest exposure our bodies CAN'T develop Any antibodies to that virus. So we become PRONE TO IT MUCH YOUNGER AGE.

Either way, a Shingles outbreak Shingles can torture even the strongest . It can depress the most optimistic, happiest person you've ever met. It can destroy any desire to live.
After putting on that "Zovirax" cream and waiting for 4 days the shingles were gone,
And it seemed like there's a cure.

A year after I was suffering another "RARE" incident of Recurring shingles, this time the pain was back in the same place, with the same symptoms and I wanted to kill myself.

So, just before I took the plunge I decided to give it a try. This was 3 days ago. Without any fear or shame. With heaps of the most excruciating pain, I've drank my own piss.
The pain vanished. Completely the NEXT DAY.
Placebo? Maybe.
Guy with a white suit who escaped an asylum? Maybe.
You might be right, either way, thanks to this website and others documenting testimonials Its gone, no more pain. I'm going to keep on doing it. (Did the mid stream thing, orally, and didn't go all diet-maniac which means kept on smoking and drinking for a bit)

So the sum this comment up,
You might be right about me being crazy, but you've OBVIOUSLY NEVER HAD SHINGLES PAIN. Hopefully, you never will too.

If you do happen to be one of the unfortunates, let this be an interest-free encouragement to a mind opening experience. It's cheaper than zovirax, and from someone who tried BOTH, this worked faster and more effectively for me (If you're in pain now than drink / rub it on NOW, avoid waiting for Tommorow morning's mid-stream)

(there's no benefit for me by doing this. Other than keeping the balance and passing on the knowledge that was given to me)
