my mother

My mother sent me a magazine clipping about enemas, with the following passage circled:

...the Mayan Indians used enemas for a completely different purpose—introducing hallucinogenic drugs and medicines into the body. Those intoxicating enemas are believed to have been ritualistic, taken during religious celebrations to enhance or alter consciousness. The reason behind this method is simple: LIquids injected into the colon are immediately absorbed into the bloodstream, so intoxication occurs rapidly without the nausea frequently produced by orally ingested hallucinogens.

She wrote the words "fascinating tidbit" in the upper margin, in black pen.
