Let’s not dismiss this book just because its subject seems controversial or taboo. It wasn’t the worst choice for a public library in 1999. I think the authors could have done a better job of differentiating between “treatment” and “cure,” but they do technically use the word “treatment.” They are just really insistent, complete with testimonials from patients, that urine therapy will work for you. You just have to get over your squeamishness and give it a try. Down the hatch. Cheers! Prost! (The authors are German, after all.)
The ailments listed on the front cover are pretty benign, but the book gets into more serious diseases and conditions like herpes, glaucoma, and back pain. Hey, Mary, if your sciatica is acting up, just drink pee.
I did have to chuckle at the chapter called “Cocktail Hour.”
