Lois N. Magner in his A History of Medicine [1992] explained that within Egyptian mythology, the enema was invented by the god Thoth, often represented with the head of an ibis. In fact, many believe that enemas were discovered through observation of the venerated bird using its curved beak to clean out its anus with water.
