Here's a basic question - why am i going to such lengths to convince you people? I have nothing to do with Taiwan or you guys. I just bumped into this website and all i did was post my experience, which was asked for by the original poster. I said upfront I am not selling you anything. My sole intention was to increase awareness of alternative therapies.
Someone started this topic to get more info about urine therapy, and I'm just helping that person since nobody here seemed to know anything about it. All I'm saying is, one should at least accept that there are ways of treating our ailments with methods other than what our doctor tells us. If fact, you guys are the westerners living in Taiwan, the real adventurers, so to say. I'm sure you have had more than a few startling exposures to new foods, peoples, cultural beliefs, and... yes, therapies. I would have thought you would be more tolerant of new experiences and concepts.
But any way, I do not wish to convince you guys about anything. I hope one day this therapy will gain acceptance into the mainstream, OR you yourself will find out more about it through experience, which is quite an epiphany, i can guarantee that. I recommend at least experimenting with external applications, it's not as revolting as ingestion for a beginner - just to see what happens. Please visit this website for some basic info:
Good luck. Hopefully this is my last post here.
Have fun in Taiwan, maybe I'll come there someday in the course of my travels.
