Drinking And Washing Your Body In Urine Could Help You Stay Young, Says Alternative Health Expert (VIDEO)


Want to prevent the ravages of old age? Then apparently you need to not only drink you own urine, but also wash your face in it.

Sylvia Chandler, the owner of Zen, a leading alternative health shop in Birmingham, has said she is often complimented on her "youthful" looks due to some rather unusual drinking habits.

The 63-year-old said her slender figure and good health is all down to one thing – her waste liquid.

She not only drinks her wee but also cleans her face and hair with it too.

"Drinking my own urine has kept me healthy and energised. And it helps me stay young – men are often surprised when I tell them my age," she told Closer magazine.

"I have a glass of urine in the morning and another couple during the day. It tastes delicious – it’s a bit like water, but sweeter.

"I haven’t been to the doctor in a decade. I never get colds and I’ve maintained my size 10 figure."
