Ancient Cultures:
Egyptians, Sumerians, Chinese, Hindus, Greeks, & Romans used enemas for medicinal purposes.

17th Century:

Use of enemas, called clysters, became quite popular in the 17th Century. It was common to add color and fragrance to the fluid in the clyster, and it was not unusual for people to have as many as three to four daily. It is recorded that King Louis XIII had more than 200 enemas in one year.

Improvements were made in the process, which became known as colon hydrotherapy.

20th Century:
J. H. Kellogg, M.D., of Battle Creek, Michigan and the cereal company, is responsible for popularizing colon hydrotherapy in the United States. “He reported in 1917 in the Journal of the American Medical Association that he was able to successfully treat all but 20 of 40,000 gastrointestinal patients using only diet, exercise and enemas— no surgery.” (Watson, Brenda, C.T., Renew Your Life: Improved Digestion and Detoxification, Renew Life Press and Information Services, 2002.)
