Thanks for all the infos and opinions ladies and gentlemen.

After reading more sources, i'm quite convinced urine drinking is harmless while still doubtful of its magic. In this manner, i decided to volunteer as a lab rat for Dhamma Wheel by consuming 1 cup( for now, i shall start by half cup first) of pee each day for 1 year or longer and see if there's any effect on my health. I don't have any severe illness but may easily get fever and fatigue which from the doctor's advice says poor immunity. If there's improvement then you guys can try it also, it is free - what else i need to say.

Anyone who is familiar with urine therapy is welcome to share their experience and analysis.

I don't think anybody will be following you in your experiment my friend and might I try one last chance to dissuade you from voluntarily drinking a cup of your own piss once a day by reiterating the fact that science has not found a single benefit in doing so. There is no evidence that you will receive any benefit from drinking your piss.

It sounds downright torturous and I don't know why on earth you'd subject yourself to it for a whole year. While there might not be any great inherent risks in doing so, there is nothing to be gained. So why do it?
"For a disciple who has conviction in the Teacher's message & lives to penetrate it, what accords with the Dhamma is this:
'The Blessed One is the Teacher, I am a disciple. He is the one who knows, not I." -

Then the Blessed One, picking up a tiny bit of dust with the tip of his fingernail, said to the monk, "There isn't even this much form...feeling...
perception...fabrications...consciousness that is constant, lasting, eternal, not subject to change, that will stay just as it is as long as eternity."

Have you seen this book: The Water of Life: Treatise on Urine Therapy
http://www.amazon.co.uk/The-Water-Life- ... 0850320526
Urine drinking was popular (as a therapy) at one time with monastics in the UK.

Urine therapy is also called Shivambu therapy, and is advocated by some people in India. After all it is the place where Hindus believe that cow-urine is holy liquid which is essential for many Hindu rituals.

If there is no scientific/medical evidence that urine therapy works...then using it is yet another way of increasing Dukkha.
At best this kind of therapy may work as a placebo.

Personally I have become disenchanted with all kind of pseudoscience claims, therapies, and superstitions.

The bodhisatta ate cow dung so I suppose drinking urine isn't the worst thing you could do.

Yeah, I still think drinking urine is silly but it's not like it's going to make it impossible for him to become awakened someday, so it's really whatevs. People are just averse to drinking urine and so, due to this condition, they are shocked that someone would do such a thing even though, in the end, it's probably rather harmless.
