Carrie says it sometimes tastes salty and like champagne at other times.
The mum consumes up to five glasses per day, making it a total of 3406 litres since her addiction began four years ago.
“Sometimes it’s salty, sometimes it tastes like champagne.
“You can taste different things going through your body, there’s certain things I don’t like to eat anymore because they don’t taste good recycled,'' she said.
How Carrie began taking her urine
The Sun UK reports that Carrie took to drinking her urine after being diagnosed with melanoma cancer four years ago.
Instead of submitting herself for chemotherapy, Carrie instead preferred urine therapy which is said to be a discounted and ancient practice.
The mum despite admitting that she has lost faith in traditional medicine has refused to call it quits on her urine therapy.
“From everything I’ve read, if I quit I’ll die,” Carrie stated.
There is however no nutritional value in drinking one's own wee, a nutritionist from The Sun UK named Amanda Ursell has revealed.
