drinking your own urine help fight hiv ???

Sep 17, 2010

Hello Dr Robert keep up the great work you,

l was tld drinking your own urine every morning boost your cd4 numbers and makes your inmune system stronger ??? is this true ???

thank you for your time

Response from Dr. Frascino


Where did you hear such a wildly insane idea as that? Fox News's Glenn Beck perhaps?

Drinking your own urine will neither boost CD4 counts nor improve immune function. But you probably guessed that already, right? Of course you did.
