RTL Today – Your Voice: Coffee, tea or pee?
Living healthy is a goal for many, but sometimes it seems like people can take it too far. Charlotte de Vreeze-Nauta has found her limit.
I know quite a few people who are into alternative healing methods. You know, regression therapy, singing bowl therapy, healing sessions and so on. Well I guess. I myself am interested in combining regular medicine with alternative therapies. I believe there is a connection between a calm soul and a healthy body. So if you find a more “spiritual” way to soothe your nerves and improve your health, why not?
But there are limits to what I am willing to try for optimal health and this morning I encountered such a limit.
A friend called me and said he and his wife were into something new. They feel good, they’ve never felt healthier and it’s all because they drink… their own urine.
What the fuck? Yes, they drink what the body considers waste.
That’s a limit for me, right there!
However, if you claim to be open-minded, you shouldn’t have an opinion without any background information, right? So I looked at him. And I mostly found articles explaining why you should NOT drink your own urine.
My friend warned me about this, saying it’s a big cover up. According to him, research with evidence on the benefits of swallowing your pee has been taken offline in order to “keep the regular medication doctrine alive”.
Yeah, I needed a minute to process that too.
What my friend means is that there is censorship going on on the World Wide Web. The testimonies on the good of drinking your pee undermine and threaten the medical world. Why? Because the benefits of drinking your own urine are such that people don’t need doctors anymore. A golden goo-drinker had completely clean lungs, despite having smoked cigarettes all his life. The doctor didn’t quite understand. How was it possible?
Thus, “to save the jobs of doctors, the medical profession as a whole and, as a derivative, the pharmaceutical industry, the positive results concerning the consumption of our landfill are censored”.
Are you kidding me? Reject scientifically researched facts and simple logic to believe only what you want to believe? Claiming that the “real data” on urine consumption is not disclosed?
I’m not even sure which I find more disturbing, drinking pee or claiming the global cover-up?
Even though some of these experiences seem real and these testimonials are from people who saw their health improve after drinking their own sap, there could be other reasons for this, right?
For example, my friend mentioned how someone with bad acne started drinking their pee and the acne slowly disappeared. Should we say hallelujah to the consumption of our own juice? Surely not. It’s logic. The oilier the skin, the more acne there is. From what I understand, urine is full of salt. So drinking it is dehydrating. Drier skin would then, logically, result in less acne. Ideal in the short term, not so beneficial in the long term.
Fetishism of feces
By the way, unlike your own sauce, “eating” poop can be very beneficial to your health. Don’t take this too literally and please don’t start a feces fetish. It comes in the form of a pill.
You may know that much of our health is regulated in our gut. Up to 500 different microbial species in the gut ensure our body is healthy by extracting necessary vitamins, minerals and others from our food.
If we don’t eat well, the good bacteria starve and the bad bacteria grow stronger. I can put it quite simplistically, but that’s what it boils down to. In case our good bacteria are low, taking poo pills, which have been made from the stools of people with good gut health, will help the good gut bacteria grow. Of course, healthy eating also adds brownie points to good gut health.
From bottom to top
Where good can be found in swallowing a poop pill, swallowing your own distillation, does not appear to be supported by scientific evidence. But if you have solid proof (no pun intended) to the contrary, please let me know. I’ll still think it’s completely disgusting and deranged, but I’ll appreciate the education. So for me no pee, but more coffee, tea and a GT once in a while. Bottom up!
