A glass a day keeps the doctor away?!?

So it has been a little while since I've had a real post. It isn't that I don't have things on my mind to write about, but nothing seems worthy of your precious time. But I was talking with my previous supervisor at work the other day and he brought something to my attention that I had to share with you. 

Now, be warned, this isn't going to be easy on those of you with weak stomachs. But I have to share and give a little (objective and well informed) advice as well. So here goes nothing.

My previous supervisor, who shall remain anonymous (we will just call him Bryan for this article), worked for a time at a laboratory where certain things were analyzed. He said there was a certain older gentleman who always came in and had private conversations with Bryan's boss. One day, this gentleman came up to Bryan and started talking to him about the benefits of drinking reagent grade peroxide and other chemicals that are very dangerous and should never be ingested for any reason (seriously, never drink hydrogen peroxide... it can kill you). Bryan acted surprised, but didn't say much about it. Then, the gentleman came close to him and in a whispering voice said, "Do you know what the secret to a healthy life is?" 

Now Bryan didn't know what to say after being blown away by the unsolicited advice that he had already received, but he asked "What?"

The Gentleman replied, "Every morning when I wake up, I go to the bathroom and collect about five to ten drops of urine and place it under my tongue. The body makes the perfect elixir to cure all disease and eliminate toxins from the body."

Well, that gentleman isn't alone in his thinking, there is an old practice called Shivambu Shastra (meaning water of Shiva). It is the practice of drinking your own urine to heal your body.

People who are into this sort of things say it can help with chemical imbalances and massaging with it will ease tension and make your skin "glow".

The article linked to above states:

"The vibratory patterns of the body, both in the bones (solid crystals) and in the tissues and fluids (liquid crystals), play an important role in the process of transmutation. The resonance field of a crystal can make a protein, for example, change its form into one that is more useful for the body or more easily adaptable by it. This can be described as "modern alchemy", and it resonates with the principles of homoeopathy."

If you can post a comment letting me know what that means, I'll be happy to hear from you.

Seriously, don't drink your urine. There is no real benefit from it. It may not kill you like drinking other chemicals, but it isn't going to cure you of a disease or keep you from getting one. It will only give you really bad breath.

So the saying that "A glass a day keeps the doctor away" may be true, but only because they don't want to be around you.

Well, I guess that's another habit I'm going to have to break . . .

I hope that man was single. What is the magic number behind 5 drops? What about 10, wouldn't that be better? Chod, experiment and let us know...sorry nik.
