History of Enemas: A Safe and Healthy Colon Cleanse Method
Chris, the gentleman running the estate sale, and I got to talking. I discovered that he has been doing estate sales for years; he pondered that perhaps he has conducted as many as 1000 estate sales. Finding this out, I told him I am a colon hydrotherapist and help people to take enemas and get set up with enema equipment. His face lit up. He then told me about all the enema equipment, old enema cans and very odd types of enema devices that he runs into.
He said, with confidence, that 95% of the homes that he has conducted an estate sale in for the elderly have had at least one piece of enema equipment, if not two. He continued, "The oldest device that I came across in my estate sale adventures for the irrigation of, or the cleansing of the lower intestines, would be a device made out of a goat skin bladder, burlap, a copper reservoir and various intake and output rubber lines that had some type of cloth coating that was badly deteriorated. This device came out of a physician’s home for an estate sale that I did in Watertown and I would say it dates pre-1900."
Before the popularization of laxatives as a colon cleanser, most everyone used an enema. Enemas work. Regular enemas are healthier for the body than regular use of laxatives when colon cleansing. Looking to the history of the enema can assist us to trust the enema as a healthy and safe colon cleanse method.
