Colon Therapy is a very ancient method of treatment and form of healing. Enemas were recorded as early as 1500 BC in the “Ebers Papyrus”, an ancient Egyptian medical document. In those earlier times, people performed an enema in a lake or river using a hollow reed to allow water to flow into the rectum. Bernard Jensen, DC says, “In times past, knowledge of the bowel was more widespread and people were taught how to care for the bowel.” Somehow, bowel wisdom got lost and it became something no one wanted to talk about anymore. Even in the 50s it was fairly common for enemas to be part of the recommended treatment for some illnesses.
