    Should I drink my own warm pee?

    Yang Liansheng, professor from the Liaoning Institute of Traditional Chinese Medicine sure thinks so! He says "Urine contains no bacterium and is more sanitary than blood".



    Three million Chinese drink their own urine

    Urine Therapy is pretty popular, just do a search for it and you'll see tons of sites. So....the question remains to you all...will you drink your own warm pee?

    i prefer mine on the rocks, stirred, not shaken

    Seriously, though, urine of an undiseased human is supposedly sterile, although it is a perfect growth medium for bacteria, so don't leave your pee sitting around for a long time before imbibing.

    I have a buddy who's Ayurvedic doctor instructed him to urinate on a persistent rash on his arm. If I remember correctly, the rash cleared up.

    Commoners of old in Europe used to hide under the outhouse to catch and drink the urine of the wealthy who were eating the famed Fly Agaric mushroom - the metabolites apparently were still quite potent to produce a hallucinogenic trip.

    I'm curious to see if Gene Ching catches this thread... or should I say 'stream'?

    Well...

    I do know that if you are stung by a jellyfish, you are supposed to urinate on the sting. (If no other help is available)

    But to drink a waste product from your own body? Never. I don't care how many studies are done to prove it safe, I don't care how many people tell me it's good for you, and I don't care who those people might be.

    NI!!

    against athlete's foot

    Urine is great against athlete's foot. Just pee on your feet when you shower... simple and very effective.

    The amanita muscaria is actually safer to consume in the form of the urine of someone (or something.. Russians used to use reindeer urine) who has already eaten the mushroom and filtered out the "bad stuff".

    So get yourself a huge cup of psychedelic pee! WOO!

    I've never had a problem with athlete's foot.

    The biblical thing to do...

    I'm curious to see if Gene Ching catches this thread... or should I say 'stream'?
    Thanks herbox (he only said this because we've discussed it during some drunken rant on our adventures, no doubt).

    Urine therapy goes back a long way, some even say it's biblical.
    "Drink water from your own cistern, flowing water from your own well. Should your springs be scattered abroad, streams of water in the streets? Let them be for yourself alone, and not for strangers with you. Let your fountain be blessed, and rejoice in the wife of your youth" (Proverbs 5:15-18 RSV)
    I've always interpreted this as advice against adultery, but within the ****-drinking circles, they say otherwise Of course, they drink ****, so what can you say? There was a great article in Yoga Journal several years ago on this. If you're really interested, that's where I'd look.

    And no, I've never experimented with this and have no intention to do so.

    I don't know how you find this stuff, but you obviously have been reading your chapter a day. Regardless, you're assertions have weight as this article sprinkles some golden light on the situation!

    3 tumblers a day keeps the doctor away! (and your friends and lovers too!)

    Well, Marley's ain't the only one to lift from the Bible. I don't do a chapter a day anymore, but it's one of the great things I enjoy about the internet - multiple translations available and cross referenced. The web is great for scripture, almost as great as it is for porn.

    Bless your fountain, everyone!
