Body Cleansing has been utilized for centuries by various world cultures as a form of spiritual purification. Even the ancient Egyptians used cleansing rituals to rid the body of toxic waste believed to cause disease. Traditionally, these cleanses involved periods of fasting, consuming specific foods and herbs and enemas. It is also believed that In the 19th century, cleansing proponents described the large intestine as a sewage system, claiming that stagnation caused toxins to be absorbed by the body. Laxatives, purges, and enemas were routinely recommended to prevent the accumulation of waste which could lead to this "autointoxication".
In cultures where fasts and cleansing are the norm, there are fewer incidence of obesity and various 'western' diseases. Modern cleansing owes its roots to German-born physician, Max Gerson, who developed a cancer treatment in the 1920s based on bowel cleansing and dietary changes.
