does peeing in your friends mouth while hes asleep count as urine therapy?

I've never understood how this is supposed to work - the whole point of urine is to get rid of bad stuff in your body, why put it back in again?!

Just noticed this bit - 'Our own urine doesn't contain any viruses or bacteria that really could harm us because those have already been filtered out by the liver'
Yeah, the liver filters the bacteria INTO the urine, to get expelled from the body. These people are idiots.

I read the whole thing,
Summary:
The way it's supposed to work is the urine contains stuff your immune system deemed "bad." Drinking urine forces the immune system to reincounter the "bad" stuff strengthening it's defence against it. Thus your immune system is supposed to get stronger against the "bad" stuff in your body, which makes you feel better.

[end summary]

The problem I have with this logic, is that it would only be helpful with chronic conditions, as transient health problems wouldn't stay in the urine long. But if the condition is chronic, then there is no need to have your body reincounter the "bad" stuff, because anything "bad" will still be in your body to some extent even after urination because the condition is ongoing.

So I would say, don't drink your pee.

But that stuff about it being germ free is pretty much true. If you are stuck in the woods and hurt yourself, you can wash wounds with it...

Hippocrates (460-377 B.C.), namesake of the Hippocratic oath, was the first in the Western world to record and teach the practice of uropoty (the drinking of urine). The theory of urine therapy states: In the excreted urine all the body's experiences -- physical and psychological -- are collected. Reintroducing the urine to the body forces the body's immune system to confront the same experiences a second time, which gives it a second incentive to deal with the problem.

Hahaha.. interesting, to say the least.

i think they are getting to drink our own urine to kill us all, just an idea that popped into my head

nnythereaper: LOL!

Anyway this whole urine-drinking thing has made the rounds occasionally for the last few years, and I don't care what the "explanation" or "logic"...it's disgusting, and I just want people that do it, far away from me.

This is almost as bad as when a doctor told me to throw myself in front of a car naked to cure my stomach ulcer... Well he wasn't actually a doctor but he was wearing a white coat... Well it wasn't actually white it was just really light yellow, but he was at least wearing a stetiscope... I'm really sorry to bombard you with this crap, I really am.

I had a friend who is into natural medicine. He was doing this for a while and tried to get me to do the same. No thanks.
