Wee matter of health
“DOESN’T she look fabulous?” sighed my fellow school runners about a mummy who’s recently become far more yummy.
“What’s her secret?” I asked, enviously eyeing her glowing skin and youthful figure. “Oh, a raw food diet and urine-rubbing,” one replied nonchalantly.
“Urine-rubbing?” I squawked. “What! Where does she rub it?”
My mind was boggling, unpleasantly so. “Into her skin just before she has a shower,” came the reply. “It’s part of a naturopathy course.”
Of course. I Googled it and discovered old urine (how old?), although it smells strongly, nourishes the body through the skin, helps against increased heartbeat and can heal skin problems such as excema, acne and psoriasis.
Will it catch on? Probably. After all, this is Brighton, a laboratory for experimentation of all sorts. But I’ll take a wee bit of persuading for this one.
Do you practise urine-rubbing? Tell me about it at katy.rice@theargus .co.uk
