Overview

Ninety-one-year-old Dr. Robert Fulford, the exceptional healer introduced to readers in Dr. Andrew Weil's landmark bestseller Spontaneous Healing, has spent more than fifty years successfully treating patients failed by conventional medicine. In this information-packed volume, he explains the function of the life force, or vital energy, that is the foundation of good health, delineates the healing principles of osteopathy, shares compelling case studies of patients he has treated, provides strategies to attain and sustain optimum good health, and offers advice on integrating natural healing methods with modern health care. Whether the issue is serious illness or less severe maladies that can sap our vitality, his practical, specific techniques for strengthening our natural healing capacities present invaluable alternatives to costly, invasive, and often unsatisfactory typical medical interventions. Dr. Fulford's Touch of Life includes why our natural state is always good health, and how to foster it; the vital role of breathing in sustaining good health - from first breath onward; why any trauma can adversely affect us, even years later; how negative thought patterns can disrupt the body's chemistry - and how to overcome them; surprising insights on herbs, homeopathy, vitamins, and diet; basic stretching and breathing exercises to enhance our own healing powers - in just thirty minutes each day; and the link between spirituality and good health - and how to create it.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In the field of alternative medicine, names like Deepak Chopra and Andrew Weil are easily recognized. Yet they are newcomers compared with Fulford, the 91-year-old osteopath who inspired Weil to explore the world of natural healing. Writing in an easy, folksy style, Fulford explains his philosophy of healing, refined by more than 50 years of practice. His wide-ranging discussion covers spirituality, diet, exercise, relationships, and a belief in the interconnectedness of all life. At times he sounds like an American Obi-Wan Kenobi, but the mystical is balanced with a large dose of common sense and experience. Fulford also includes an illustrated chapter on exercises. It is easy to see why Weil was so affected by this wise old doctor. His book is sure to be in demand and is recommended for all public libraries.Elizabeth Braaksma, Brodie Resource Lib., Thunder Bay, Ontario

    The Future of Medicine

    As an osteopathic physician in training, Dr. Fulford is a true literary mentor of mine. The implicit truths in his words are as fundamental as they are profound. I am a fortunate soul to be learning from DO's who worked with this great man. With utmost respect for his contributions, I intend to integrate his insights and values in ceaseless pursuit of wellness for all my patients! Thanks Dr. Fulford
