Man Claims Drinking Urine Will Cure Depression, Stop Aging


A vegan man swears that drinking urine has cured his depression and left him looking ten years younger. In 2016, Harry Matadeen started drinking his own urine to heal his ongoing mental health problems and hasn’t looked back.

Since he started drinking 200ml of his own urine every day, Matadeen has been feeling “a new sense of peace, calm and determination.” It also cured him of his mental health issues immediately.

The 34-year-old doesn’t stop at drinking his own urine. He also has been known to cup his stream every now and then to splash on his face and to rub it into his skin. Doing so is the “secret to eternal youth.”

Matadeen explained the method behind his madness: “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.

“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. It’s the secret to eternal youth.

“Sometimes when I’m in the urinals and no one is watching I will cup my hand and splash the fresh urine I am excreting on my face and rub it in.

“Urine therapy has changed my life.”

Despite the claims that there are serious health benefits to drinking urine, doctors say that isn’t necessarily the case.

“Urine is a waste product that contains about 90 percent water. The rest is ammonia and salts, some bacteria and other waste products.

“There are no known reported health benefits from either drinking or rubbing your own urine onto your body (or anyone else’s urine).

“Orally, it is much worse – it can actually speed up the dehydration process and potentially introduce bacteria. Bottom line is if you would not eat or rub in your own feces, then don’t think applying the same principle with urine is any healthier.

“Waste products are waste for a reason,” said Dr. Jeff Foster, a GP in Warwickshire.

Adding this bizarre “health kick” into Matadeen’s routine has left even his closest family members confused.

“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.

“I’ve chosen all of my friends now and all of them either do aged fresh urine therapy or approve of it. 

“If they didn’t I wouldn’t have them as friends – simple as that.”
