Brief History of Colon Hydrotherapy

Colon lavage isn’t new; it was first recorded 1500 B.C. in the ancient Egyptian documents. These enemas were described as the infusion of aqueous substances in the large intestine through the rectum. Hippocrates {the father of medicine} recorded using enemas for fever therapy in the 4th & 5th century A.D. and many alternative medicine physicians still recommend them today.

Theory of Colon Hydrotherapy

Colon hydrotherapy is an extended and more complete form of an enema. The concept involves the mechanical process of infusing warm filtered water into the rectum with the objective of cleansing and balancing the colon. This procedure removes fecal material from colon walls and dilutes the bacterial toxin concentration in the large intestine.

The therapeutic effects of colon hydrotherapy are improved muscle tone which aids peristaltic action and enhances the absorption of nutrients from the cecum and ascending colon while minimizing the absorption of toxic waste material. The cleansing effects of colon hydrotherapy reduce stagnation and subsequent bacterial proliferation in the colon and maintain harmony of the intestinal flora in promoting optimal health.

What Others Have Said

Dr. John Harvey Kellogg, founder of the Kellogg Cereal Company

Dr. Kellogg reported in the 1917 Journal of American Medicine, that in the treatment of gastrointestinal disease in over 20,000 cases, he had used surgery in only twenty cases. The rest were helped as a result of cleansing the bowels, diet, and exercise. Colon hydrotherapy is still used by many in the medical field today. Dr. Kellogg also said, 90% of disease is due to improper functioning of the colon.

Dr. Bernard Jensen, D.C., Nutritionist

Dr. Jensen says, “Every tissue in the body is fed by the bloodstream, which is supplied by the bowel. When the bowel is dirty, the blood is dirty and so are the organs and tissues. It is the bowel that must be cared for first. Sickness and disease respond more effectively and faster to treatment when bowel irrigation is done first.”

90% of Americans are walking around with clogged colons (US Health Service).

Dr. Norman Walker, author of Colon Health

Dr. Walker says, “The very best of diets can be no better than the very worst, if the sewage system of the colon is clogged with a collection of waste and corruption.” Constipation is derived from the Latin word constipatus, which translated means to press or crowd together, to pack, and to cram.

Famous people who have used colon hydrotherapy

Mae West, John Lennon, Janet Jackson, Princes Di, and many others.

“She has her bowels washed out with 12 gallons of water 3 times a week. Now she’s free from: tiredness, anorexia, headaches, allergies, depression, and candida. Picture of healthy colonPRINCESS DI’s bizarre secret to health, a slim figure and glowing beauty is giving her body the Royal Flush!”

The GLOBE reported that three times a week, the 31 year-old princess goes to London’s prestigious Hale Clinic for colonic irrigation — a super enema treatment that scrubs her bowels out with 12 gallons of water. She says that it “pumps up her energy and keeps her looking young.” She even credits the enema treatment with curing her fatigue, allergies, depression, infections, migraines and bulimia! “My migraines are caused by food allergies, and I haven’t had one since I started the treatments.” “I can actually feel the toxins being flushed out of my system while I’m on the table.” – The GLOBE, Vol. 40, Number 22 – June 1, 1993.
