The History of Colonic Hydrotherapy
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.
