It bothers me when people say things like this. This is exactly why we sell crap loads of homeopathic "medicine" and other placebo products like Airbourne! Does it have any side effect? perhaps not, aside from the fact that a person just wasted his or her time and hard earned money, not to mention the fact that it promotes an untruth.
Machida does not improve as a result of drinking his own piss, he improves IN SPITE of drinking his own piss. Atleast his piss does not actually cost him money.
Many people say things like "I have heard it is good for your teeth, penis, sex life, etc" The key word is HEARD! Or "people SAY" etc. Sometimes there are statements like "studies show" bla bla, but consider the source, most often the studies are flawed, not double blind, and biased. The fact that that the company chooses places that are not independent or they may even be conducted by the makers themselves, with no more than 1 or 2 people. Look: Jane has a cold, Jane eats M and M's Jane gets over her cold, she feels she got over her cold faster than "normal" as a result M and M's have a 100's success rate in cold combat. TADA! Then they can make the claim "studies show this works!" It is pretend science, it is bullshit, it should be illegal.
Same goes for most if not all the claims for acupuncture, many of the claims from chiropractors, and all claims from faith healers, water dowsers, psychic healers etc. Many ailments go away on their own, if you see one of these charlatans in the meantime, when the illness goes away the charlatan gets/takes the credit!
There are double blind studies on many of these alternative ... things... and they fail every time. But we don't promote that news do we? nope.
Thank you poster for actually investigating for yourself and remaining skeptical.
well said max hardcore

Not saying it is some cure-all, but I think there is enough evidence of from the study of meridians, chi/qi, energy channels etc. to say that scientists don't conclusively know anything as much as they think they do.
What's lost in this entire thread is the fact that drinking all those stupid supplements, protein drinks and other energy boosting drinks that those companies sell likely has the same benefits as drinking your own urine.
I've read some nutrition studies that show a 100 lb teenage girl eats enough protein to meet the protein requirements of a 200lb + training athlete.
Maybe drinking piss is just a cheaper alternative that blowing cash on the supplements?
Hi Noahm. I appreciate your response.

I am not aware of any scientific evidence for meridians, energy channels etc, these are very vague terms, with no ability to test if they actually exist (at least at the moment) Yes some modern doctor buildings do allow acupuncture and other pseudo science like the stuff Mr Meyagi does to daniel-son where he hovers his hands over him to "heal him". All I can figure is this does not have any side effect so one could say 'eh, couldn't hurt' and it may help a person mentally I'll give it that. Just like giving a Tylenol to a teen looking for a high and watch them tell their friends "dude Im so fucked up, you gotta try this"
Acupuncture, homeopathy etc all these things that try and pass as science do not even publish their "studies" in any real scientific journals. Its always in stuff like "Scientific Alternative Healing" Or the "chiropractic report.
I don't really want to get into a debate about acupuncture fact/fiction but I do want to point out that the power of a positive, healthy mind has been shown to have some kind of power in itself (more rapid healing, less stress on the body, etc.). So while the technique of acupuncture itself may have no direct effect, someone who truly believes in it may still gain a substantial benefit...similar to someone having regular massages to take away mental and physical stress vs. someone who just keeps it all bottled up inside (eating away at him mentally and eventually physically).
