Acting Minister of Health of Ukraine Ulyana Suprun urged residents of the country to abandon urine therapy.
The Ukrainian politician noted that she received many requests to write about urine therapy as an alternative method of treatment.
“I’ll tell you right away - drinking, rubbing, making masks or drops of urine is not worth it at all. In addition, there is no scientific evidence that it has any health benefits. Nevertheless, urinotherapy has a large following who believe in the magical power of this fluid,”Suprun wrote on her Facebook page.
According to her, “The essence of urination is for the kidneys to filter the blood. This is how the body gets rid of excess fluid, salts and minerals”, and the return of these products back to the body is not required.
Ulyana Suprun, a US citizen, has been repeatedly accused of promoting platitudes and not dealing with issues of Ukrainian health care. Previously, she offered to treat diseases with music, and drive away flies from eating, reduce mortality by dancing, while parents of children with cancer asked for help from the Ukrainian Ministry of Health, and repeatedly went to rallies in front of the ministry building.
The VZGLYAD newspaper analyzed in detail the initiatives of Suprun and explained what they would lead to.
