Colon Cleansing History

Colon Cleansing History
25/08/2020

Colon and bowel cleansing dates back to 1400 B.C. the ‘Ebers Papyrus’, an ancient Egyptian medical document and the oldest known surgical and medical text, described the many benefits of colon cleansing. Physicians at that time believed that old intestinal waste, faecal matter absorbed into the circulation could poison the body causing illness, mucus, and pus. The practice of cleansing the colon was administered in a river by using a hollow reed to induce water flow into the rectum. Also, in the Edwin Smith Papyrus which was named after the dealer who brought the ancient papers in 1862, there is mentioned of bowel cleansing and the methods used. The Greeks also believed that incomplete digestion of food resulted in the build-up of residue and caused disease. Hippocrates Pare and Galen also advanced the use of enema therapy. AN OLD PRACTICE REDISCOVERED The 1700 century became known as the age of colon cleansing and was commonly done among European populations to assist with maintenance and promotion of overall health. The Parisian society practiced doing as many as 3-4 enemas a day, believing that internal washing was essential to well -being. At an early time in America colon cleansing was a commonly used procedure to help maintain health and stave off disease. For example, before the departure of the Lewis and Clarke expedition, a physician instructed them in the appropriateness of using enemas in cases of fever and illness. African traditions still use colon cleansing methods and the knowledge is passed down to generations. Our grandparents and great-grandparents grew up with the use of herbal remedies and enemas as a widely accepted procedure for reversing the onset of illness and keeping healthy.
