Urinotherapy and Antidepressants

Post by Mansfield » Sat Apr 25, 2009 6:57 am

Hello,

I am interested in practicing urinotherapy, but being treated with an antidepressant (Ixel, NSRIs), I am afraid that the practice might be harmful for me. Is it so?

Thank you.

I guess the question is why would you be considering something like this in the first place?

Urine therapy has been touted as a remedy for a long list of ailments, including multiple sclerosis, colitis, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, cancer, hepatitis, hyperactivity, psoriasis, eczema, diabetes, herpes, mononucleosis, and adrenal failure. It is a commonly used treatment for snakebites and bee and jellyfish stings

Several pre-existing conditions preclude the use of urine therapy. Heavy smokers and people taking therapeutic or recreational drugs should not use their own urine. Those suffering from bladder infections or venereal disease are also advised against ingesting their urine.

There's a difference between the interaction of urea and venom proteins when applied topically and ingesting a solution of materials cleared from the body as wastes or excess. The first has a demonstrable chemical interaction; the second makes no sense whatsoever.
