Urine ‘therapy’…

Being beautiful on the outside always starts from within, and I’m not talking about all that ‘personality’ bullshit. As an anaemic vegetarian with a chain smoking habit which could give Dot Cotton a run for her money, it’s very important I keep up with my multi vitamins. Smoking depletes all most every vitamin you gain, especially B vitamins which are crucial for maintaining healthy hair, skin and nails. On the limited student diet I survive on, vitamins are scarce. Shopping in Holland and Barrett with all the do-gooders depresses me, so I’ve followed the likes of British actress, Sarah Miles, and looked a little closer to home. Yes, urine therapy – to you and me that means drinking your own pee… apparently the Chinese swear by it! So, I brought some paper cups (considering my flatmates feelings) and sat down for breakfast with my bowl of cornflakes, and my cup of ‘apple juice’. I am not going to lie to you, it took me around 20 attempts, in between the retching, just lifting the cup to my mouth. But I soldered on and got there in the end. My verdict: revolting, but manageable. A bit like drinking gone off green tea. Though a little warm for my liking. So I would probably recommend chilling it before hand. Obviously, putting human waste in a fridge seems pretty unhygienic and unfair on whoever shares your fridge, so perhaps pop a couple of ice cubes in and pretend it’s an long island iced tea cocktail. In order for me to reap the full benefits of my new found beauty regime, I have to drink it over a period of time. And after a week, I did notice a certain glow I was lacking before. However, I’m sure if a man was in my life they would probably not be around for long if they knew about my drinking habits. So I think you will see me, clutching my tub of multi vits, in a queue in Holland and Barrett very soon. But for those of you daring enough to try it, I’d say go for it…just be sure to wash your hands after!

    Pretty much my reaction!

    I’m going to actually try this one Georgie! I’ve heard a lot of good about drinking your own urine, that is when you learn to hold it down for longer than 5 seconds. It’s all my own and that can only be a good thing right? Time to pee!

    • georgetteculley / Mar 17 2010 2:09 pm

      Ha ha! Exactly, it’s all our own ‘goodness’, and we’re doing our bit for the environment by recycling! Glad you’re on board!!

      What’s wrong with good old fruit and veg!

      Rather you than me Georgie : /

      • georgetteculley / Mar 17 2010 2:13 pm

        I’m all for fruit and veg, but it’s expensive! And I’m an impoverished student! Go on Adam, live a little!

    Although the idea of this makes me feel quite queezy, i kind of want to try it now. The only thing stopping me would be that horrible feeling of after a week not noticing any difference and realising i’ve been drinking my own wee for no reason 😦 That would be no fun at all.

    • georgetteculley / Mar 17 2010 2:16 pm

      Good point Hannah, that would be no fun! lol But I guess you’ll never know, unless you try… Maybe we should all go to the toilets after law next week! Ha ha

    If I was a little worse for wear the night before is there a chance of getting drunk all over again if I drink my own pee?

    • georgetteculley / Mar 17 2010 2:28 pm

      LOL! Do you know I never even thought about that… I think we should try it, just think about the money we would save! Mind you, where would it stop? We could just go on forever getting pissed on our own p… And that doesn’t seem too appealing…

    George I can’t believe you of all people did this! You cry about losing your Nars on the train but drink wee…Kudos for actually doing it though, you grub! xx

    • georgetteculley / Mar 17 2010 3:49 pm

      Oh no…you just reminded me about my Nars… That still brings a tear to my eye! I am actually surprised at myself!

  6. warminustheshooting / Mar 17 2010 3:55 pm

    George, there’s something very odd about you

  7. lauren / Mar 17 2010 5:09 pm

  8. Daisy / Mar 17 2010 5:31 pm

  13. Louise / Mar 24 2010 10:03 pm

    Wow… That’s some habit you’ve got there if that is what you are reduced to! Lol! You have more guts than me- give me Holland and Barrett anyday! x x

    Culley you rankoid, can’t believe you did that.

    Have you though about combining this idea with the bathing in tea one? – Drink tea and bathe in your own piss.
