Inner Hygiene explores the serious health threat of constipation, and discusses the extraordinary variety of preventive and curative measures that have been developed to save people from the toxic effects of intestinal irregularity. The book examines the evolution over the last two centuries of the belief that constipation is a disease brought on by an unnatural lifestyle of urban, industrial society. Particular attention is given to the many constipation
therapies that people have used, including laxatives, enemas, mineral waters, bran cereals, yogurts, electrotherapy, calisthenics, rectal dilation devices, and many other remedies. The story is carried up to the present and demonstrates that many of constipation therapies of the nineteenth and twentieth
centuries are continuing into the twenty-first.

"This book is exhaustive and scholarly, but, thank goodness, it is also a wry chronicle. To anyone who grew up puzzling over delicately worded radio ads for peculiar products like Serutan ("nature's spelled backwards"), Sal Hepatica and Carter's Little Liver Pills, or wondering how Grandma could have been addicted to Feen-a-Mint laxative chewing gum, Dr. Whorton's book will explain it all." Denise Grady, Health & Fitness, The New York Times
