  • Urine therapy?

    Hey guys. I read some of you sit in freezing water to help losing weight.
    It sounds crazy. It really does. While I'm not here to judge anyone (hey, we eat fat and it works!) for trying desperate moves to improve your life, a question came to me -

    I heard many times that urine helps to clear the skin and models drink it to have a smooth face
    Has anyone tried it?
    Everything is bad for something - How do you feel today?

    Urine is full of toxins.

      When I was young my mom had me dab urine on my face because she was convinced it would clear up acne. It didn't work. But urine therapy has been used by yogis for a long time. It's called amaroli. But yogis are vegetarian. I think the quality of your urine matters if you are drinking it.

        If you are going to drink it... make sure you eat lots of asparagus first, amazing for the skin.

            Urine is full of urea, which oxidizes back into ammonia after some exposure to air. Perhaps this is why people associated it with being able to clean skin. I believe I read somewhere that in ye olde times, they would collect urine to make ammonia for general cleaning, and perhaps body cleaning was a part of this.

            But yeah, urea is in urine specifically because your body is trying to get rid of it, and once it turns back into ammonia its even more toxic. Drinking small doses of fresh urine, on occasion for ritual or whatever, is probably ok, but I be very very careful of making it a regular habit, cause youll just be concentrating urea and ammonia back in your body.

                  It'll be OK, he can eat some asparagus and then apply the urine to his face. CURED!
