urine therapy

Pseudomedicine
The oral, parenteral, rectal or topical consumption of one’s own urine as a therapeutic “agent”. Urine therapy was enthusiastically adopted in the early 20th century by the Briton JW Armstrong, who believed its consumption was effective for asthma, bladder problems, burns, cancer, diabetes, fever, gangrene, heart disease, malaria, renal failure, tuberculosis, wounds and other conditions. Because Armstrong viewed urine as a panacea, a specific medical diagnosis was unnecessary; urine has been more recently extolled as a therapy for AIDS, arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, herpes and leprosy.

There are no peer-reviewed studies to suggest that urine has a any kind of therapeutic role.
