Some time ago, I watched a TV program about people who were trying to make dramatic improvements to their health. One of the procedures that each person had to endure was colon hydrotherapy. I wondered about whether this could possibly be effective (after all, some variation of it has been practiced since ancient Egyptian days…), and so rather than googling, I searched our e-library for scholarly articles on the subject. I’ll never forget having my research interrupted by a somewhat shocked looking co-worker, who kindly ignored my red face, and pretended as if nothing was out of the ordinary. Note to self: these articles are available from home!
