History of Colon Therapy

Colon Hygiene Institute history of colon therapy in Las VegasAncient Beginnings

The practice began in the ancient times in Egypt, perhaps as early as 1500 B.C. and was recorded in a medical document known as the “Eber Papyrus,” where enemas and colon hydrotherapy were used by physicians to treat fever and remove mucus. The ancient Greeks also used colonic irrigation to remove food, bile, and blood, and to assist those with diseases.

Hippocrates, Pare and Galen also advanced the use of enema therapy.

In earlier times, people implemented enema treatments in a river by using a hollow reed to induce water to flow into the rectum.

At an early time in America . . . Enemas were 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. Our grandparents and great-grandparents grew up with the use of enemas as a widely accepted procedure for reversing the onset of illness.

 

​The Modern Movement

In the modern era, a medical physician by the name of John H. Kellogg, was celebrated for his invention of Corn Flakes, Rice Crispies, but most importantly on his talks and speeches on proper hygiene and healthy foods, soon creating a following for colon hydrotherapy. He used colon therapy on thousands of patients, never reverting to surgery to treat gastrointestinal disease in hospitals and doctors’ offices.

As Dr. J.H. Kellogg said, “We are literally poisoning ourselves into illness when the bowel evacuation is deficient,” as reported in Journal of the American Medical Association, 1917.

“Colon hydrotherapy eliminates from the bowel the accumulated waste material which may get absorbed. If this absorption takes place, it overwhelms the other purification organs such as the liver, the kidneys, the skin, and the lungs. The toxin deposition which becomes lodged throughout the body’s tissues and cells becomes capable of triggering a variety of illnesses,” says rheumatologist Dr. Arthur E. Brawer, as noted in the Medical Journalist Report.

Dr. Leonard Smith of Gainsville, Florida, comments that, “normally healthy people will find it valuable to take colon hydrotherapy every couple of months in order to experience how well one feels when the colon is truly empty. It’s a fact that most people fail to fully evacuate the colon, something they don’t realize. People undergoing colon hydrotherapy on a prevention basis, become quite surprised at how much waste is removed by the procedure,” published from the Townsend Letter for Doctors, 2000.

Whether or not you believe in colon hydrotherapy as a method of eliminating toxins from your own body, it’s at least worth a try. The worst that can happen is to achieve a peaceful feeling of wellbeing and ultimate clarity. There is nothing to lose except the old waste hidden deep within your colon. It’s worth a shot!​

5 out of 5 stars I cannot say enough amazing things about the Colon Hygiene Institute. The facility is to notch -- clean, warm, inviting. The owner is so warm and friendly and makes the entire process extremely comfortable. I had been wanting to try colon hydrotherapy for years, but was always nervous due to the nature of the procedure. The team here is unbelievably amazing. They make you comfortable every step of the way. The treatment rooms are immaculately clean, they smell great, and it is an amazing experience. I am so glad that my friend found this spot. We looked at several others in Vegas and none seemed as well put together as the Colon Hygiene Institute. So lucky that we found this place. I would recommend this for anyone who has ever wondered about these services.
