History of the Colon Hydrotherapy
The   Edwin   Smith   Papyrus   (c.1700   BC)   and   the   Ebers   papyrus   (c.1500   BC)   hint   at   the   importance   of   the   cleansing   of   the colon via the rectum. Equally,   numerous   civilisations   (Egypt,   Mesopotamia,   Greece,   China,   India,   Native   Americans,   the   Essenes,...)   offer   proof that,   throughout   all   times,   cleaning   the   large   intestine   has   been   extolled   as   a   simple   act   of   hygiene,   as   a   therapeutic procedure or as a method of inner purification. The    first    mention    of    the    enema    in    medical    literature    comes    from    Ancient    Egypt.    The    enema    was    considered    such    an    essential component of good health that every pharaoh had his own so-called "Guardian of the Anus."             Jesus,   in   The   Essene   Gospel   of   Peace   from   the   third   century,   stated:   “The   uncleanness   within   is   greater   by   much   than the   uncleanness   without.   And   he   who   cleanses   himself   without,   but   within   remains   unclean,   is   like   a   tomb   that outwards   is   painted   fair,   but   is   within   full   of   all   manner   of   horrible   uncleanliness   and   abominations.   And   this   holy baptizing   is   rebirth   unto   the   new   life,   for   your   eyes   shall   henceforth   see,   and   your   ears   shall   hear.   Fear   no   more, after your baptism, and the angels of air and water will eternally abide in you and shall serve you evermore. ”Ancient   Greek   writings   corroborate   the   Egyptian   preoccupation   with   colonic   cleanliness.   Hippocrates   (460-377   BC)   and   his   followers began   to   advocate   health   by   enema   as   well,   as   did   the   eternally   popular   Galen,   some   650   years   later.   Hipocrates   described   how   to   carry out colonic cleansing and specified what type of plant had to be added according to the type of illness. In China and India has been practiced for centuries. Pliny   in   AD   77   tells   the   legend   of   Ibis.   The   legend   relates   that   it   was   Ibis   Ave   which   taught   man   how   to   purge   their   gut.   After   a   hearty meal of fish, this bird was overloaded and its peak inhaled seawater, introduced in the year, then evacuated and felt better. In   the   Middle   Ages,   doctors   administered   enemas   with   complex   solutions   –   the   formulae   for   which   are   collected   in   the   ‘antidotarius magnus’ --compiled about 1080 by the archbishop of Salerno. Paré (16th cent.) was the first to describe colonic irrigation in great detail and to make a distinction with a simple enema. Dr.   John   Harvey   Kellogg      (Michigan,   U.S.A.)   in   1903   published   a   comprehensive   booklet   (Rational   Hydrotherapy)   on   this   therapy   and   in his book recommended colon hydrotherapy for many ailments, including bile, liver, surgical shocks and cholera. Dr.   Kellogg   reported   in   the   Journal   of   American   Medicine,   that   in   the   treatment   of   more   than   40,000   cases   of   gastrointestinal   disease, he had used surgery in only twenty cases. The others were improved by the cleansing of the bowel, improved diet and exercise. The   value   of   colon   hydrotherapy   has   been   recognized   by   many   medical   practitioners   of   our   time,   among   which   the   most   notable   were James   A.   Wiltsie   MD.   and   Joseph   EG   Waddington:   "Bowel   irrigation   scientific   and   supportive   therapy"   in   which   he   said   that   "the abnormal    functioning    of    the    intestinal    canal    is    the    precursor    to    many    health    problems    and    especially    of    chronic    diseases.    The restoration   of   physiologic   intestinal   elimination   is   often   of   paramount   importance,   preliminary   to   eventual   full   restoration   of   health   in general."   CLICK THE FOLLOWING LINKS FOR MORE INFORMATION: 1.-   HISTORY 2.- EFFECTS 3.- PATHOLOGIES 4.- CLASSIFICATION OF THE CONTENTS OF THE INTESTINES 5.- COLON CLEANSING BEFORE COLONOSCOPY   References Vassey, C. 1992.
