A yoga master claims he’s not had a cold for nearly 20 years – all because he snorts a cup of his own urine.

Sam Cohen (41), a practising Taoist Buddhist, uses a cup to funnel the urine into his nostrils when he goes to the loo.

The teaching assistant says it’s also done wonders for his sex life and protects him against disease, reports The Sun.

Sam from Islington in London told news outlets he drinks his own wee – which he calls Auryn, the Celtic word for golden – every day. He carries a special cup with him for this purpose.

"It’s not possible to get a cold when you constantly drink through the nose. You can feel under the weather but one drink up the nose and any clouds start to evaporate.

"You’ve got your cup concealed and you go to the toilet and you come out and you look glowing and refreshed," Sam told The Sun.

Regarding how the urine drinking has helped his sex life, Sam added that before, he often felt drained and drowsy.

"I was 22 and once I started to drink urine I started to get younger again. The urine is just like an overall boost. It will make you feel younger and make you have more hardness. It does actually make you last longer."

According to Metro, Sam said the snorting technique takes about six times longer than normal drinking.

He also snorts water, red wine, and vegetable and fruit juices and has written a free guidebook on the bizarre practice.

Sam says he’s not alone in practising the technique. Over the last four years he’s come across around 100 people on Facebook who also nose-drink.

And, while researching for his book, he found out that “old Chinese masters” also used the technique.

"It immediately calms and relaxes you. It facilitates digestion and improves appetite. It helps you breathe through the nose better.

"It removes tiredness and lethargy. It enhances the libido. The brain might say to you, ‘what are you doing’, but you start to do it calm and controlled, then you see it’s a natural process."
