Urine Therapy and the first World Conference on Urine Therapy:

The basic definition of “urine therapy” is using (your own) urine internally or externally as a way to aid or sustain your health. Urine therapy, which includes drinking, injecting, massaging with, and/or bathing in urine, is an ancient practice that is used today, not only in times of sickness, but also in times of good health for preventive health maintenance. It has been claimed to have proven helpful in a great number of varying illnesses, ranging from a simple cold and a throat-ache, to tuberculosis and asthma, from minor skin problems such as itching to major skin problems such as eczema, psoriasis and even skin cancer. – jeff lowe

Update:

1. Midstream urine should be used.

2. Urine should be sipped like tea and not drunk like water.

3. The first flow of the day is the most important.

4. When you feel mentally prepared to attempt the actual practice, collect some fresh urine and start by rubbing your hands with it.

Total and complete nonsense. There's a REASON your body is getting rid of that stuff, folks! On the other hand, the placebo effect is a well-known phenomenon, so if you really really believe that drinking your own urine will make you healthier, maybe it will.

No, no, no--it's misinformation like this that gives urine therapy a bad name. It's dog pee that must be consumed:
