Urine Therapy, medically sound or just gross?

I have a neighbor that is what some may consider, a little eccentric. He talks about conspiracies and teas and things that you grow in a jar by feeding then sugary water. He has been talking about urine therapy lately. Looking into it, basically to find arguments with which to refute his own, I was actually surprised about how old and widespread this thing is. 
So, would you drink your own if convinced of his curative powers?

  • And in light of this bombshell I'm toying with the thought that your recent occulator purchasing was a trifle rash, no?

    I have heard all the "benefits" of it and I couldn't do it. Nothing would help me overcome the yuck factor.

  • I know right? 
    I've heard of it before but had no idea how big it was until I decided to look into it.
    Does that mean you tried it????
    Come on you can tell. )

    A healthy persons urine is sterile. It won't do you any good, but nor will it harm you. You should look at the medical use of faeces. Surprisingly, it is a valid treatment.

    I don't care.  It smells rotten.   This is the body's waste and it is like any other waste product.   It is not useful at ALL.   Maybe you can use it to kill germs on a wound if you are desperate, but still it is caustic.  It has salts in it and it is pure garbage, sterile or not. Like sweat.

    It IS medically valid, like it or not!

  • Feces???
    You're going hard core on that one.
    That definitely gives "facial mud treatment" a whole new connotation.
    Looking at the tittle for that link, ill have to take your word for it. 
    Thanks HD

  • Oh I dunno, Pearl. A couple of glasses of a robust Chardonnay might be just the thing to help us all cross this shadowy Rubicon.
