Troy Casey, 55, of Arizona, has been drinking his urine and applying it to his skin for seventeen years, going so far as to undertake week-long urine fasts and rectum enemas. He attributes his ripped physique to his daily pee-drinking routine.
Ex-Versace Model Credits Youthful Looks To Drinking His Own Urine
Troy - who modeled for top fashion brands like Versace before becoming a Life Coach and Healer - says: 'Urine therapy is an ancient practice - it just doesn't get talked about a lot. Your pee is full of amino acids, stem cells, and antibodies.'
'I drink my urine every morning - I call it hair of the dog! The feeling is electric.’
'Applying aged urine is the fountain of youth and aged urine enemas are one of the ways I got my stomach so flat.’
'I'm 55 years old and most people don't look and feel like I do at my age. No one can deny that I'm ripped and that's down to the fact that I love being extremely healthy and practicing natural healing methods.’
'People should be scared if they're eating sh***y food and doing pharmaceutical drugs. Why should they be scared to try their urine?'
He explains: 'When I started modeling in my twenties, I was living the high life, partying in Milan, New York, and London and not looking after myself. As a result, I would bloat and hold on to the extra water in my face and body.'
'Sometimes I would be so bloated that casting agents would tell me not to go to Vogue or Armani shoot today. It began affecting my life and so I began reading up on nutrition and practicing stuff like herbal medicine, fasting, and eating real foods to combat it.'
'Soon after, I started getting results when I looked in the mirror. I became hooked to learning about natural and ancient healing methods and truly understanding health.'
In 2004, Troy became interested in urine therapy, often called in Ayurvedic medicine as 'Shivambu.' When he couldn't be bothered to stop for a toilet break on a long vehicle ride, he drank his urine for the first time, and the sensation of tasting his pee was 'electric.'
Troy says: 'I had read about the benefits of urine therapy in ancient Ayurvedic medicine and the information resonated with it.'
'The first time I tried my urine, I was driving from San Francisco from Los Angeles. It's a long five-hour drive. I didn't want to stop to take a leak so I peed in a cup and drank it and I was like hey that's not so bad! Drinking my urine, it wasn't as bad as the mental barrier in my mind.'
'The electricity was so immediate and subtle - I felt a cool buzz. Intuitively, it just felt good. I drank my urine on and off for a while from there.'
He explains: 'For my health, drinking urine is there for me every morning. It's in my arsenal - along with hydration, nutrition, and sleep.'
'If the apocalypse ever happens and we don't have access to water anymore, I've got my urine! I got my water to drink! I survived on my pee before and it works.'
'I'm fifty-five years old and look at my vitality, my skin, my body, my health. People are impressed by my physique and energy at my age.'
'What so many pharmaceutical companies don't want to tell you is that we as humans are the secret to health. That's what I try to teach people in everything I do.'
