The author of this book, Dr. Robert Fulford, was one of the pioneers of alternative medicine in the form of Osteopathy. Where among other things, one of the primary methods utilized was full body and cranial manipulation. The central focus of Dr. Fulford's methods is that the body has the innate ability to heal itself and that the whole body must be looked at in a holistic way in contrast to viewing it as several unrelated systems. Unfortunately this is the trend of modern allopathic medicine. I ...more

Read this to better understand osteopathic medicine. Sadly, not many doctors of osteopathic medicine include osteopathic manipulative therapy in their practices.

Extremely skeptical, but definitely interesting, and helps me contextualize several friends' interest in some of the practices contained within this book.

This book is an amazing insight into the teachings and healing work of Dr. Robert Fulford. Osteopathic medicine was established in the United States, and has been around for many years . . . yet many people have never heard of it, or have reservations about the profession based on false media statements. Perhaps this is why this book is a breath of fresh air, because Dr. Fulford was a master of osteopathy, and proved to make a positive effect on many people over the course of his lifetime.

My Osteopath gave me a handout with stretching exercises developed by Dr. Fulford. Simple but effective, I was curious to learn more about him and I'm glad I did. His simple and straightforward writing style emphasizes the basics to building a life of wellness: taking good care of yourself by stretching, meditating, dealing with the past to release pain from your body and mind, eating for nourishment, etc. Great reference book moving forward.

This is a funny little book about mind-body healing written by a country doctor who's avoided being hypnotized by the promises of the pharmaceutical sales reps. Just gives his own experiences and insights without attempting to cover the whole subject. A nice read.

Great book by a great Osteopathic physician. Dr. Fulford explains from his many years of experience about how effective Osteopathic medicine is and breaks down this field to a science of sort. Great read and will keep for future reference...has some pretty good info.

I got this book about 13 years ago and it was very moving and exciting then. Knowing all I do now, I realize this book so much more valuable than I ever realized written by a darling, beautiful man. I highly recommend.

An osteopathic classic, Dr. Fulford's book is a very quick and enjoyable read and very useful for anyone wanting to learn more about "traditional osteopathy."
Annette Eccles
A must read for anyone who wants to be involved in the healing field. He was a wonderful and humble man.
