Bathing in Urine
Bathing in urine was a strange and unpleasant cure for the plague that was used in some parts of the world in the distant past. The idea behind this practice was that urine was believed to have purifying properties. By bathing in it, the body would be rid of toxins and impurities that were causing the disease. The practice was particularly popular during the Black Death pandemic in Europe in the 14th century, when people were desperate for any remedy that might help cure the disease. While bathing in urine may have had some mild antiseptic properties, it was not an effective treatment for the plague.
