Group in Boulder drinks their own pee for 'health benefits'
Medical experts say it's harmful and full of bacteria, but this group says when western medicine didn't work, their own urine did.

BOULDER, Colo. — Once a month, a group of people in Boulder get together at the public library to talk about a subject that makes most people cringe in disgust.

"This is the Urine Therapy Meetup," said Christopher Macor.

They are a group of people who either drink their own pee or use it for topical treatment.

Macor began using it when he said no other creams or ointments helped his eczema on his hands.

He says the moment he began soaking them in his urine, his eczema went away.

"It's the fluid of your body that's being given to you," said Macor, who added the practice dates back 4,000 years and is called Shivambhu.

The group also included Indira Bhatt Gupta, a woman who said her urine has been helping with various ailments since 1983.

“In the morning that is the first thing I do," she said. "Let some part go, take the middle part, put it in my eyes, put it in my face, and just have some Chai in the morning."

The group of five uses urine in various ways, although one participant just came to see what it was all about.

Donna Calabrese hasn't tried it and wants more proof.

When her friend first told her about she said she had "the normal American reaction."

"The second reaction is okay there’s got to be some sort of scientific validity somewhere? I need to see it," she said.

9NEWS medical expert Dr. Comilla Sasson said there isn't any scientific evidence and "it could be harmful" because of the bacteria. She would not recommend anyone try this.

The group points to a book by Boulder resident Brother Sage as their proof.

"This works," said Macor. "If you just shift your perception about it."

Until the meeting on Wednesday morning, Therese Nicol had only soaked her feet in her urine. But the group gave her the courage to go further.
"I know that I'll be drinking my urine when I get home," she said.

And she did.

She gathered a fresh sample and drank it all in one gulp.

With a shrug of her shoulders, Nicol said, "That was fine."

Not that unheard of, just not popular with most people. All you need to is google 'health benefits of drinking urine' to see there is a following

That's probably one of the milder things going on in Boulder. By the way, Boulder does not refer to a large rock. The city name is actually a derivative of an old Indian word- bah-elder. It means 'freak show'.

I have known people who followed this nutty practice. Urine may be sterile but why do it?

I will freely release my urethral nectar into the waiting mouths of the female piss-drinkers. For the males, I offer them my pimp hand.

I pee on my feet in the shower.

It mitigates/eliminates athlete's foot.

Urea is a common ingredient in many skin treatments.

I remember how early Puritan Cotton Mather recommended gathering the piss of young boys for some folk remedy. I knew an orchardist who used urine to an organic spray on apple trees.

That stuff won't work on THC as that molecule is fat soluble. It can take up to 90 days to eliminate THC from the body ( According to Marine Corps version of the test).

Drinking urine is nothing. I like to spread a little doodie on my bagel in the morning. It gives me a coffee-like buzz and nobody can tell it from Nutella.

Must be an Indian thing, I've read that Mahatma Gandhi would do the same thing every morning; drink a cup full of his last night's urine.

Urine 'therapy' will be your free government health care...

https://www.quora.com/Why-did-the-Indian-Prime-Minister-Morarji-Desai-drink-urine

"Morarji Desai, as prime minister in the 1970s, discovered that a lot of Indian citizens were unable to afford proper medical care, and it was a herculean task to make medical care affordable to them. At this point of time, he started researching about cheaper medical care and medicines, and found out that Urine is a wonderful cure to a lot of diseases, and guess what? The production is absolutely free. It was after this discovery of his that he started to drink urine, to benefit his own health."

I heard somewhere that meth heads do it to get an extra "free" dose.

mma ex-champ lyota machida followed the urine drinking regimen. i think it actually goes way back. however, it is not sterile, but it comes from your own body (i would hope) so i would guess that you wouldn't be at risk of contaminating yourself in any way. of course many people have survived bad situations by drinking it.

I don't care. I'm only doing it in a SHTF survival mode.

Hey, I never said I drink the stuff (knowingly).

I just pee on my own feet.

Well, come to think of it....it is filtered
Just think of the "water" that our publically exalted astronauts consume while orbiting the earth.

Over and over, again, and again...

It’s got electrolytes.

Put your pee in a jar for 30 days, then open it & try to drink it !
I use it as a natural predator scent to keep deer away from certain areas in the yard.
To my "tastes" this is a much better use than as a beverage ! :piss:don't know:

I read it but did not find any description of that.
Interesting story though. Dying due to lack of knowledge of how to operate a jack.

I read something about Pike in the 80s where he and she drank one another's urine to try to survive. I could probably dig up a record on that.

I’ve drunk my own piss once on accident. Don’t ask me to explain. It really doesn’t taste bad.
