    Pee cures

    I remember reading that it was good for sea urchin quills, which I imagine is akin to jellyfish stings mentioned in an earlier post. For some reason, I think I read that in an Ian Fleming James Bond book.

    It's also good for hangovers. If your buddy is lying supine with a hangover and you pee on his head, he won't even be thinking about his hangover anymore. I tried it on herbox once, but it was back when he wore full dreadlocks. They acted like a big sponge so it had no effect. He never even woke up.

    Yeah, I did that once. Once. Then I got my azz handed to me. But he did forget about his hangover!

    Well, now that you're donning curls...

    ...if you ever get a hangover, just give me a ring and I'd be happy to cure it for ya.

    Thumbs up health benefits of urine

    recently i have been delving into natural remedies that help dissolve blood clots and promote cardiovascular health when i stumbled upon this article... http://www.all-natural.com/urine.html. apparently the kidneys produce an emzyme called urokinase which activates plasminogen directly, which is used to dissolve blood clots in the arteries and veins... unfortunately the only way to naturally ingest this emzyme is by drinking your own urine.

    urokinase definition... http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/...9955/urokinase

    plasminogen definition... http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/...03/plasminogen

    comments anyone?

    I could totally make some sort of comment about Uki's great fondness for watersports here.

    Oh wait, I just did.

    hardy har har... this was to be a serious thread yo, now you had to go and ruin it.

    synthetically producing urokinase is a muti-billion dollar industry and yet here it is produced naturally in ones own body. just think of all the people who cannot afford the big pharm brands to treat their problems relating to blood clot formations.

    comments anyone?
    the use of urine, either internally or externally, has been documented in various cultures; in Taoist practice, my teacher has mentioned that the "formula" is the urine of a pre-adolescent boy - evidently something to do with it not containing the degree of hormone found later (hey, I don't claim anything, just reporting what I was told); ostensibly this is supposed to be a great "tonic"; others advocate only using one's own urine, not someone else's; personally, although I have never done it, I know of one guy who was a long-time and high-level ba gua practitioner who claimed that he did this on a regular basis; one claim he made was that it helped him one time when he had a tooth go septic and he eschewed the use of anti-biotics, using, as he put it, "formula p" and a combination of herbs such as golden seal, echinacea and myrrh; again, just reporting what I heard, not condoning or condemning either way, just info for the thread;

    intuitively, the concept in general does not strike me as inherently implausible - for example, there may be some sort of endocrinological feedback loop associated with ingestion of urine as a way for the system to self-regulate, I don't know - I should get my wife's opinion and do a little Medline research about it perhaps...

    atleast you are keeping your neck in shape... unless of course it is just another knee jerk reaction when starting a post you do not agree with, much like davids lol at the end of every post(i imagine this jolly fellow jiggling in his chair).
    I don't even know where to begin...
    well this and the shaking your head was a start.
    First urine, then what?
    any suggestions? i am sure our girlfriends might be interested in the nutritional value of the other discharge from ones schlong.
    Eating your own boogers?
    actually everytime you suck your snot it amounts to eating a booger of sorts...
    Curry layden fecal matter?
    fecal matter is the bodies real waste... if it weren't the case, we'd have thousands of years of cultural proof that it is beneficial to ones health, yet we do not, most people agree it is simply poop.
    Indonesian food ??
    are you knocking indonesian food? i must admit that mei fun is not quite the gourmet food of choice, but it's edible nonetheless.

    a few more links to the subject...
