Pare, in 1600 A.D., offered the first recognized distinction between colonics and popular enema therapy of that age. After the turn of the century, colon hydrotherapy was popular among many physicians such as James Wiltse and E.G Waddington. Both were proponents of the therapy and placed great value on the therapeutic benefits of this modality. Dr. Wiltse stated: "As long as we assume that the colon will take care of itself, for just that long will we remain in complete ignorance of perhaps the most important source of ill health in the whole body."
With today's technological advancements in the safety of colon hydrotherapy instrumentation in the hands of a qualified therapist, colon hydrotherapy has become a valuable modality to physicians in treating disease. Colon hydrotherapy has a rich history in not only treating illness and disease, but in purifying oneself of toxins of all kinds. The ancients understood this. "Pure, lasting, and abiding health is the result of conscious discipline in cleanliness of body, mind, and spirit. All else is compromise." Bernard Jensen, D.C., PhD.
Hippocrates (4th and 5th century A.D.) recorded his experience using colonics for fever therapy. In fact, there was a time before conventional medicine and antibiotics when a patient was admitted to the hospital and the first thing a doctor ordered was a high colonic. This would reduce toxicity, bring a fever down, and totally change the course of an illness.
1500 B.C. in the ancient Egyptian document called Ebers Papyrus, which dealt with the practice of
medicine. These ancient Dead Sea Scrolls described in detail the infusion of aqueous water into the
colon. Colon Hydrotherapy was referenced to as the Angel of Water. It was part of the purifying
process of the body which is said to affect the mind and spirit. It was said that one was to fast, which was referenced to as the Angel of air, and to perform colonics, the Angel of water until the water came out as pure as the rivers foam. It is clear that the ancients had a vast understanding of health, both on a physical and emotional level.
The body does not differentiate between a physical and an emotional toxin. to the body, we are a whole being. Spiritual, physical, emotional, all in one. When we purify ourselves in this way, we affect the whole being on all levels. Water is spirit, it brings light into the dark areas of the colon.

pathways to Health
When toxins are recycled back into the bloodstream,the body seeks another method of elimination. The toxins then go to the liver and seek alternative disposal through the skin, the lungs, the kidneys, the lymphatic system, the joint spaces, or the vaginal tract. The extra work placed on these systems causes an overload, which may produce a variety of diseases. If the colon becomes coated and impacted with waste, and proper elimination does not take place, the whole body is poisoned and symptoms of almost any and every disease will begin to appear.
The intestinal tract deserves special attention. Every tissue is fed by the blood, which is fed by the intestines. When the intestines are dirty, the blood is dirty, and so are the organs and tissues. It is the intestinal tract that invariably has to be cared for first, before any effective healing can take place.
