GROSS! Woman Drinks Dogs Pee & Claims It Helps Her Acne!

A woman claims that she has a new remedy to counteract acne: dog urine!

In a viral video, the woman has her dog pee into a cup and then she drinks the urine from the cup. 

The woman explains,  “Until I first drank my dog’s pee, I was depressed, I was sad, and I had really bad acne. 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."

Certified holistic nutritionist Joy McCarthy told Allure, that urine therapy has been around for several hundred years and was practiced by ancient Greek and Roman societies.

However, “there are far better ways to get healthy than drinking dog urine.

“For instance, drinking lemon and water to stimulate the gastric juices for better digestion or apple cider vinegar in water has been touted for everything from weight loss to detoxification effects.”

Dog urine in some cases contain herbicides and Dr. McCarthy says drinking the urine is not a smart decision.
