The Waters of Life – Myles Reviews

A few months ago when I was visiting the walled city of Chiang Mai in Northern Thailand, I came across a treasure trove of quackery. I had stumbled across a bookshop that happened to have the finest selection of woo I had ever seen. One of the books from this store I talked about previously was Cosmic Cleaning which is an instruction guide for cleaning the “nine opens of the body”. A lot of these techniques for cleaning your various openings involved either dousing yourself in generous amounts of your own urine or gulping the stuff down like it’s going out of fashion. In all honesty, it was a pretty good read and something which I thought would be hard to top but, unknown to me, another book I picked up at that shop would be giving Cosmic Cleansing a run for its money. The Water of Life is another book promoting the therapeutic properties of drinking one’s own widdle, and is written by the naturopath John W. Armstrong. Unlike Cosmic Cleaning which is a light-hearted romp through the wonderful world of woo, The Water of Life is a somewhat darker and more disgusting read.
