Historians tell us that the practice of Colon Hydrotherapy, or in its basic form; Enema, was first used by the Egyptians. The Ebers Paprus, of the 14th Century B.C., and the Edwin Smith Paprus (c. 1700 BC.,) both mention enemas and give directions for the use of the enema.
By the late 19th Century and early 20th Century, with the advent of rubber and plastic the enema slowly gave way to strict FDA standards and safety in colon hydrotherapy equipment.
Dr. Kellogg reported in the 1917 Journal of American Medicine that utilized cleansing of the bowels, diet and of course exercise as a popular treatment.
Colon Hydrotherapy eventually gained the attention of James A. Wiltsie, M.D., Who contended that “our knowledge of the normal and abnormal physiology of the Colon, and its pathology and management, has not kept pace with that of many Organs and Systems of the body.”
