Drinking URINE can cure asthma, arthritis, allergies, acne, cancer, indigestion, migraines, wrinkles, and a host of other conditions

NUGGET: It’s true that drinking urine is used as a treatment in India to cure asthma, arthritis, allergies, acne, cancer, indigestion, migraines, wrinkles, and a host of other conditions.

A country where water is so scarce, people dying of dehydration, heat exhaustion, thirst is common. While some survivals resort to drinking urine, to pass this legend to the descendent of theirs that consuming urine is SAFE…

Under some caution and certain conditions, it is deemed safe to drink your own urine.

Evidence for the Health Claim

In some 3rdWorld country, not to be named, that drinking urine a their way of survival because urine comprised about 95% of water, filtered after filtered from our body as part of the body of removing out waste and unwanted products.Although few people like the idea of drinking urine, fewer would prefer to suffer the ultimate consequences of dehydration.

But do you know that use of urine can be used as medical substance in other well-hydrated individuals in 1st or 2nd World Country ?

It all went back to the ancient cultural and medical practices in countries like Egypt, China, India, and the Aztec empire, their physician consider drinking urine—one’s own or someone else’s—as a treatment or cure for a variety of ailments. They call it the self cure practices. Human body is well-known for own recovery of eye corrections, skin and body repair.

Today. there are many of medical practices in the teachings of Ayurveda that allow urine consumptions.

Ayurveda, the ancient holistic healing system of India, is grounded in a spiritual view of life. Its practitioners have advocated urine therapy as a treatment for asthma, arthritis, allergies, acne, cancer, indigestion,migraines, wrinkles, and a host of other conditions.

Even though, there is no medical evidence supporting and backing this urine drinking practice as an effective treatment for any of these (or other) illnesses, scientific studies have shown that some components of urine have medicinal properties.

Most notably, urea (comprises 2% of our urine) contain some antiviral, antifungal, and antibacterial characteristics. And currently some research is on the way to investigate the potential of other urinary substances to treat infertility and specific forms of cancer.

While drinking urine has the properties to recover and cure have yet to be confirmed by further research, drinking in small quantity ( if you do drink it now ), is unlikely to produce serious harm.

Evidence Against the Claim

Although sipping urine may not be immediately harmful, it should not be forgotten that urine can also contain harmful ( not dangerous ) substances in those who have taken drugs—legal or otherwise—or have been exposed to chemical residues in the environment.

Also, if a person were to drink his own urine as a substitute for fresh drinking water, the proportion of water content would rapidly decrease as the proportion of harmful waste products increased. It means, after a few cycle of drinking urine, the urine may become toxic as the the water contain reduces.

Urine therapy advocates who tout urine’s healing properties point to the fact that urine contains vitamins, hormones, proteins, and other constituents generally accepted as beneficial. However, detractors point out that the body’s process of elimination is more than merely efficient, ridding itself of what it can’t store. Rather, the kidneys diligently retain what is useful and dispose of everything else deemed dispensable.

Even urine therapy advocates warn of the dangers of excessive urine consumption. During a worldwide conference of urine therapy practitioners, the Chinese Association of Urine Therapy warned that drinking urine has negative side effects, including diarrhea, fatigue, fever, and muscle soreness; and these symptoms increase with the amount of urine ingested.

Conclusion

Because urine is primarily water, drinking it in small amounts is probably harmless unless you’ve been exposed to medications or environmental toxins that your body is desperately trying to eliminate. When faced with life-threatening dehydration, drinking urine may make some sense, since the temporary benefits are likely to outweigh the risks. However, this last ditch effort will be short-lived, since the kidneys stop making urine as the dehydration worsens.

Does your fish feel thirsty, pain and urine ?


The answer is simply YES. Some of them do but not all. As long as we distinctively set “thirst” differences between human and fishes.

There is also some differences for the fishes living in fresh water and sea water, and we also need to consider the possibility of the thirsty shark.

Bony fish, aka teleosts, have a salt concentration that is different from the concentration in the environment.

This also means that they live in an environment with a much higher salt concentration than is present in their blood. Their relatives in fresh water are in the opposite position.

Water usually move from higher concentration to lower concentration, a process of osmosis, through the membranes of the fishes. This, in a way, cause a constant leak of water through their body wall, gills and epithelia.

This is the part that answers the question : To replenish the lost water, marine fish is required to drink, so it would be ease their thirst. The excess salt they digest into their body by drinking seawater is excreted by specialised cells located in the gills.

While, freshwater fish, on the other hand, are unlikely to become thirsty. This is due to the fact that they live in a more dilute environment, and they have the opposite problem. Water tend to flows inwards to dilutes their blood.

The freshwater fish therefore need to excrete excess water, which they do in much the same way we do, through the fishes way of urinating…

So we can see that marine fish get thirsty and likes to drink in,
w
hile freshwater fish will do the opposite, urine the excess water out.

LASTLY, for the sharks, dogfish, rays and skateshave little or no osmotic gradient between blood and seawater. This is because they can retain organic molecules, the main ones being urea (carbamide) and trimethylamine oxide (TMAO). In this way, the cunning sharks avoid an osmotic water flow from their body surfaces, and may not be very thirsty.

FISH does feel PAIN !

New research, however, suggests that they may, revealing that their nervous system may be more complex than we thought—and our own awareness of pain may be much more evolutionarily ancient than suspected.

Joseph Garner of Purdue University and his colleagues in Norway report that the way goldfish respond to pain shows that thesevanimals do experience pain consciously, rather than simply reacting with a reflex—such as when a person recoils after stepping on a tack (jerking away before he or she is aware of the sensation).

In the study, the biologists found that goldfish injected with saline solution and exposed to a painful level of heat in a test tank will swim to and fro in one spot when placed back in their home tank.

Garner labels that “fearful, avoidance behavior.” Such behavior, he says, is cognitive—not reflexive. Other fish, after receiving a morphine injection that blocked the impact of pain, showed no such fearful behavior.
