I am a 20-year-old undergraduate. I recently read somewhere that drinking one’s urine first thing in the morning is good for one’s health. Kindly let me know if this is true so I can also start drinking my own urine.

Even though I must confess that I don’t have any experience with ‘Urine Therapy’ I am aware that for thousands of years, several cultures have used the therapy, also known as uropathy or urotherapy, for all manners of disease and injury. Uropathy has been recorded in Egyptian medical texts and in ancient Chinese medical documents. The Aztec civilization also used urine to heal wounds while Hindu practices noted the benefits of drinking one’s own urine.  One of the most famous users of urine therapy was Prime Minister of India from 1977 to 1979, Morarji Desai. On the occasion of his 99th birthday in 1995, Desai attributed his longevity to drinking his morning urine on a daily basis.  With the above, it is up to you to know how to handle the issue of ‘Urine Therapy’.
