Professional colon hydro-therapy benefits are being rediscovered globally and regarded as the foremost among cleansing treatments and technologies. Long before the word “colonic” came to use, popular healers of ancient times understood the need to cleanse the colon. Archeologists’ uncovered writings on colon health and cleansing set down by ancient Egyptian and Mesopotamian societies dating back to 5,000 B.C.

The writings of Plato, Hippocrates, Aristotle, Galen, Pare’ and Da Vinci reveal that the founding fathers of modern medicine understood and practiced early methods of cleansing the colon for a wide variety of health conditions and afflictions.

 

Below are articles explaining more of the history of colonic irrigation.

“The practice began in the ancient times in Egypt, perhaps as early as 1500 B.C. and was recorded in a medical document known as the “Eber Papyrus,” where enemas and colon hydrotherapies were used by physicians to treat fever and remove mucus. The ancient Greeks also used colonic irrigation to remove food, bile, blood, and for those with diseases.”

“It is difficult to identify the exact time in history that colon hydrotherapy emerged, but many historians trace it back to the ancient Egyptians. The historians tell us that the practice colon hydrotherapy, or in its more basic form, the enema, was passed down from the Gods to the Egyptians. There are numerous reports of the frequent use of the enema by the Egyptians, with all of them referencing a papyrus of the 14th century B.C., which is stored in the Royal Museum of Berlin. Descriptions of various methods of preparing enemas are found in the Ebers Papyrus, of the 14th century B.C. This document was obtained in 1873 by Georg Ebers, and dates from the XVIIIth Dynasty. Directions for the use of the enema (or clyster), and remedies for over 20 stomach and intestinal complaints “to drive out excrements” are mentioned.”
