Beneficial? She claims it has helped clear her skin and also cured her depression

The horrifying video appears to be real after the woman is able to chug the cup of urine right after she collects it from the dog.

‘Until I first drank my dog’s pee, I was depressed, I was sad, and I had bad acne,’ the woman says after finishing the cup.

‘Dog pee also has vitamin A in it, vitamin E in it, and it has 10 grams of calcium, and it’s also proven to help cure cancer.’

Drinking dog or human urine is known as urine therapy, and it was a practiced form of therapy in ancient China, Rome, Greece, and Egypt.

But experts warn about the impact the substance can have on the health because of the toxins and acids that can reside in the urine.

‘Urine is mostly made up of water, lots of urea, creatinine, various electrolytes, uric acid, trace proteins, and low levels of antibodies and enzymes,’ Joy McCarthy, a certified holistic nutritionist, told Allure.

She says that drinking urine from an animal could be an unsafe route for the body because what the liquid might contain.

‘Herbicides have been detected in dog’s urine, likely from herbicide-treated lawns, antibiotics, and hormones, so I really don’t know that it’s the safest choice,’ Joy says.

Unconfirmed: The woman also claims drinking urine can help cure cancer, but experts say more research is needed on the possible benefits of the substance

A common misconception people have is that drinking one’s own urine could help in a survival situation to prevent dehydration.

But the US Army Field Manual actually instructs its soldiers to not drink their urine because it might contain ‘harmful body waste.’

As for the woman’s claim that the urine could cure cancer, there lacks a sufficient amount of evidence to support the method.

Dr. Amy Shah, a functional medicine doctor tells Mind Body Green that small amounts of urine therapy could be beneficial, but she would not prescribe it as a cure for diseases at the moment.

‘While most of the urine are water, waste, and urea, I still cannot recommend this as a viable alternative to the many diseases it is touted to cure,’ she says.

‘We have more waste in our systems today than we did thousands of years ago.’

Consuming that waste without anything filtered out could cause more harm than good compared to the modern medicine available, Dr. Shah explains.
