Quote:A famed Austrian museum has fired an employee for washing his hands and face with his urine.

Alfred Zoppelt says he was fired after 23 years of working as an attendant at the Belvedere, a castle in Vienna with a major art collection. He says his adherence to urine therapy was previously "never a problem."

Quote:In alternative medicine, the term urine therapy (also urotherapy, urinotherapy or uropathy) refers to various applications of human urine for medicinal or cosmetic purposes, including drinking of one's own urine and massaging one's skin with one's own urine. While there are no known scientifically proven health benefits of such therapeutic use for urine,[1][2][3][4][5] some chemical components of urine do have some well known commercial and other uses, like urea and urokinase.[3] For instance, urea in urine has been found to be antibacterial to bacteria causing urinary tract infections specifically, and ingestion of urea has been found to increase this antibacterial activity in urine itself,[6] though no evidence was found for such an effect upon the actual ingestion or application of urine.

Eurotherapy, huh?

"urea in urine has been found to be antibacterial to bacteria causing urinary tract infections"

Uhhhh...

I guess to existence of urinary tract infections shows this is false?




I have known Pagans that have used their own urine as skin problem treatments. Then again, I knew one Pagan chick that used her menstrual discharge as nutrients for her pot plants.

A few years back I was teaching a class at art school and this chick proudly shows me one of her paintings, she gave it to me as in I held it in my hands, as she declared "I used only my own menstrual blood" damned.gif

I've heard that from farmers tales growing up in the Midwest, never knew if it was true. Also heard it gets rid of athletes foot.

Sure it's true. Same pissing on scratches knowledge around these parts too, but I think working at a museum wouldn't cause such injuries that required urine during work hours 13.gif

Cave mud and the salt water of the Florida Keys and south Florida help cuts heal faster also.
