Does Urine Therapy work?


Urine therapy, also known as urotherapy or auto-urine therapy, is a controversial alternative medicine practice that involves using urine as a therapeutic agent. The practice involves drinking one’s own urine, using urine topically on the skin, or injecting urine into the bloodstream.

Proponents of urine therapy claim that it has a wide range of health benefits, such as boosting the immune system, improving digestion, treating skin conditions, and even curing cancer. However, there is no scientific evidence to support these claims, and most medical professionals strongly advise against using urine as a form of therapy.

In fact, urine can contain harmful bacteria, viruses, and toxins, particularly if the person has an underlying medical condition or infection. Drinking or applying urine can also lead to infection or irritation of the skin and mucous membranes. Therefore, it is not recommended to use urine therapy as a form of medical treatment.
