"He was next appointed to a large church in the city of Manchester. Here he inherited dif ficulties growing out of discordant conditions in the congregation, which resulted during his first year in several church trials. By a wise course of personal conduct, however, by a firm and calm adherence to his Christian convic tions, and by zealous fidelity to his ministerial duties in pulpit and parish, he won favor from the people, and the purification and restoration of his church. It was within this period that consumption was quite generally supposed to be doing its fatal work with the pastor. His presiding elder besought him, with all gentleness, to go home that he might receive the attention which only a mother's love could bestow upon "a sick and dying son." The young pastor declined to follow this advice, and further determined not to die. This same presiding elder and Dr. Buckley, both members, greeted each other in the General Conference which met in the city of Brooklyn, in 1872." (from J. M. Buckley's biography by George Mains).

However, there is no credible evidence that chastity belts existed before the 15th century (over a century after the last Middle Eastern Crusade) , and their main period of apparent use falls within the Renaissance rather than the Middle Ages.".

"Some forms of colon hydrotherapy use tubes to inject water, sometimes mixed with herbs or with other liquids, into the colon via the rectum using special equipment. Oral cleaning regimens use dietary fiber, herbs, dietary supplements, or laxatives. People who practice colon cleansing believe that accumulations of putrefied feces line the walls of the large intestine and that these accumulations harbor parasites or pathogenic gut flora, causing nonspecific symptoms and general ill-health. This "auto-intoxication" hypothesis is based on medical beliefs of the Ancient Egyptians and Greeks and was discredited in the early 20th century." (From Wikipedia). Near Fine .

"Prof Thomas Laycock FRSE FRCPE (1812-1876) was an English neurophysiologist who was a native of Bedale near York. Among medical historians, he is best known for his influence on John Hughlings Jackson and the psychiatrist James Crichton-Browne. Laycock’s interests were the nervous system and psychology....Laycock is known for a concept involving "reflex action of the brain", postulating that the reflex was an intelligent, but unconscious reaction to stimuli. He asserted that although the brain was an organ of consciousness, it was still subject to the laws of reflex action, and in this regard was no different from other ganglia of the nervous system. He also held a fundamental belief in the "unity of nature", and saw nature as working through an unconsciously acting principle of organization." from Wikipedia.. Very Good- .
