A 34-year-old vegan man from England drinks 200 ml of his urine every dayHe claims that the practice has cured his depression and makes him look much younger.

Harry Matadeen drinks most of his urine for a month and tops it off with fresh urine. In addition to drinking his urine, he also smears it all over his face. The British says his skin is young, soft and luminous.

As reported by the Daily Mail, the Hampshire man began consuming his own urine in 2016 because he was ‘desperate to cure’ his mental health issues. Matadeen claims that drinking the urine “woke up his brain” and eliminated his depression, It left him feeling “a new sense of peace, calm and determination.”

Matadeen describes that old urine smells bad and it can take a while to get used to the taste, while fresh urine has a neutral odor and does not taste bad “unless you’re really toxic.”

The man points out that his sister rejects him, the family does not approve of his urine therapy, they find it a disgusting practice. He has close people whom he has chosen, friends who also consume urine or approve of the practice.

Medical evidence does not support that urine is an effective treatment to cure diseases

Urine is 91-96 percent water with the rest being salts, ammonia and by-products that have filtered through the body as part of the body’s ongoing process of remove waste products.

Proponents of urine therapy point out that it can work as a treatment for asthma, arthritis, allergies, acne, indigestion, migraines, wrinkles, and even cancer.

Urine therapy, urophagia or urotherapy is a practice that would have been practiced since ancient Rome, also in Greece and Egypt.

Winchester Hospital shares that some components of urine may have medicinal properties, “in particular, urea which has antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral characteristics.” However, no medical evidence supports that urine is an effective treatment for curing diseases.

According to Healthline, “Research suggests that drinking urine can introduce bacteria, toxins, and other harmful substances into the bloodstream.. It can even put undue pressure on the kidneys.”

In a survival situation, Winchester Hospital notes that drinking urine may make sense, although the benefits would be temporary, as the kidneys stop producing urine as dehydration worsens.
