He not only ingests the yellow-coloured liquid but uses it as a face wash too.

For the past six years a man has been drinking his own urine religiously every morning.

Dave Murphy, from Essex in England, not only ingests the urine but uses it as a face wash too.

The 54-year-old claims his habit has a number of health benefits and he encourages people to join in on what he calls “urine therapy”.

“After drinking my urine, I feel healthier and fitter than I’ve ever done before and I’ve lost 50 kg in weight,” says Murphy, a father of two.

“Urine therapy isn’t just about drinking it. You can also wash it and moisturize with it. It’s the ultimate anti-aging skin product – my lines and wrinkles have disappeared since I began using my wee as a moisturizer.

“You can even use it to alleviate aches and pain and as an eye wash or a foot bath.”

Dave started utilising his bodily waste in May 2011, after attending a talk about urine therapy.

He admits he was skeptical about attending but soon changed his mind. “By the end of the talk, my friends and I came out saying that we’ve got to try this out!”

The very next day, Dave, who has a 25-year-old daughter and 21-year-old son, took his first gulp of wee.

Initially, he stored it in the fridge to keep cool and mixed it with grapefruit juice. But now he drinks it warm and undiluted.

“Within a matter of minutes of consuming my first glass of pee though, I felt the benefits. I had lots of energy and my bowel movements improved.

“During the course of the following year, my weight began to drop off.”

But the Essex dad believes urine has more benefits than simply health, like saving money.

“I don’t need much money to survive anymore. Because of all the wee I drink, I don’t need to eat very much food at all."

“As humans we don’t actually have to consume that much. Urine can help us reduce what we need to eat – as it contains everything humans require."

"Urine is a cure-all. If people could just change their mentality and preconceptions about this therapy, then anyone can feel the huge benefits."

Uh, no thanks.
