TRUTH !!
James Graham became rich by convincing people that they would be healed or their health improved by being buried in dirt up to their necks. James Graham was a quack with very creative ideas. He swore that his earth bath, in which the person was buried in dirt up to their neck, would cleanse and purify the body. He claimed his dirt bath could cure almost any disease as long as the patient bathed (in dirt) regularly. He also built an erotic chapel, which he named "The Temple of the Hymen" complete with a 12'x 9'
bed. Decorated with flashing lights and erotic paintings he guaranteed one night at his temple could cure any sexual problem.
