Drinking Urine in Guatemala

I didn’t do it, but I’m intrigued by the idea. This last week I was in my Spanish class and talking to my instructor about the art of medicine in different cultures. My instructor has issues with migraines and some occasional stomach issues. That was when she brought up that many Guatemalan’s believe drinking urine in the morning will help fight off illness. I thought for sure I had misunderstood her spanish, but she went onto to explain that I was understanding correctly. I’m not sure if I’m up for trying this, but I did find her explanation interesting. Below are some links with more info on the subject (although I had a hard time finding info specific to Guatemala)

Have your say
