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.

Woman shares how housemaid mixed urine with the food she served her family

Meanwhile, previously reported that a woman had narrated how her housemaid mixed urine with their food.

The woman named Shelia said:

"I found her red handed adding her urine into the mbuzi fry. I threw up so much that night, got a fever, stomach runs and a panic attack. My hubby also developed a running stomach."

When confronted on why she was lacing their food with her urine, the young girl confessed that her mother advised her to keep doing it as a way of protecting her job.

Apparently, adding her urine to the employer's food would have made the family get blinded into loving her as an employee, especially the children since she was employed to take care of them.
