A man has claimed that he drinks his own urine, saying that the practice is key to ‘eternal youth’ and it made him look 10 years younger.
Harry Matadeen, who is a vegan, has been drinking his own urine since 2016 and he says that it has has ‘cured’ him of his mental health struggles including social anxiety.
“It was beyond my wildest imaginations how powerful it was when I drank it,” he told Jam Press.
“From the moment I drank the urine, it woke up my brain and removed my depression. I felt a new sense of peace, calm and determination. I thought, ‘Wow, I can make it for free and always keep myself in this happy state’,” he said.
Matadeen reportedly drinks 200 millilitres of his own urine every day. His daily drink often consists of month-old urine mixed with a dash of fresh pee.
“Fresh urine is never as bad as you imagine – it is neutral-smelling and not a bad taste unless you are really toxic. But the aged urine is always smelly and the taste is refined and acquired one. I’ll just say it takes some getting used to!” Matadeen said.
“I actually like the smell and taste of my aged urine now, due to neuro-association of what benefits and joy it gives me after I take it into my system,” he added.
If that wasn’t enough, Matadeen also uses the urine in his hands and massages it into his face as a moisturizer.
“Urine has made me look a lot younger. Drinking the aged urine has revitalized my face to its youthful years and when I rub it on my face, the difference is instant and obvious,” he claimed.
“My skin is young, soft and glowing. Aged urine is the best food for the skin that I have found to date. When you rub it on, it softens the skin and keeps it youthful and elastic. I don’t use any other skincare other than urine,” he added.
Expectedly, Matadeen has received backlash from his own family members over his lifestyle choices.
“My family never approved of it and thought it disgusting from the beginning. My sister doesn’t speak to me and one reason is my partaking in urine therapy,” he said.
However, he has no plans to give up on urine therapy as it has changed his life. Gross alert?
