    It is drinking your own pee in the
    morning. Sounds a bit strange but it can have a lot of benefits so i read on the internet. I cannot get a link in this thread, i'm sorry. Maybe you can google it, 'urine therapy CFS'

    Well, pre-ME, I used to do it when it was clear I was coming down with a flu or something, especially if I was in a spot where I had no access to other solutions. It's super gross, but I have to admit it works.

    But I decided that's only the case for people who are otherwise generally well--being in a prolonged illness state, I don't think
    it it's a good idea.

    Now you all think I'm insane!

    I have heard of drinking your own urine but not as a treatment for any disease and especially not ME/CFS.

    Be my guest!

    I did it the last 4 days and i can say i sleep a bit better. Have dreams in the night, that i normally don't have or cant remember. I just have to wait and see. Tried alot in my career ;-)
    I am not on meds or supplements right now, but do smoke and have 2 glasses of alcohol every day, that isn't doing good for urine therapy. But i thought i give it a try.
    It is maybe weird, but not so bad to drink.

    ... drinking your own pee, maybe Bear Grills can give us a heads up on that one - every time I watched those doco's thats what he seemed to get up to.:lol:

    A friend of ours tried this when he was diagnosed with cancer - don't think it helped him.
    Alcohol?? so you're one of the lucky ones - many MEers can't tolerate any alcohol.

    I don't know if i have ME. I have energy problems, motivation/depressed problems. What is cannot tolerate? I mostly feel bad all day with or without the alcohol.

    Yes, a few members of my local ME support group tried this in the late 80's but it had no benefits for them. Yes, we really were that desperate then.

    There were few medications for ME then. Before they started on the urine therapy some members of the group had tried Nystatin for candida but most had given up by the time they tried the urine. Some may have been taking supplements of various types though.

    It just seems like a bad idea, since urine is a solution of bodily waste. It's the primary way your body gets rid of stuff.

    That's okay you don't have to drink it, Irene :)

    However just for fun, here is a different picture of what the urine is:

    Oh, this reminds me of back when I could leave my house :cry: and I was in the ocean a lot.
    I got stung really painfully by a bunch of wicked jellyfish and applying urine totally neutralized the pain.

    The Shoman in Central America use it for many things including snake bites, but most snake bite victims die, if they were bitten by a poisonous snake, because they can't get to the hospital in time to get anti-venom
