    A Great Book Written by My Father’s Best Friend, September 14, 1999

    This review is from: Dr. Fulford’s Touch of Life: The Healing Power of the Natural Life Force (Paperback)

    Dr. Fulford signed my book in his home in Waverly, Ohio while 92 years young. At that time, he worked on my daughter and me. He was very alert and active, though somewhat depressed from his wife being institutionalized with alzheimers.

    Dr. Fulford truly lived and breathed what he taught…he was for real.

    My father was an M.D. in Indianapolis, IN and met Bob Fulford in, I believe, Cleveland, in the early 1950s at an organic food meeting. Their lifelong friendship was forged at that time and lasted until my father’s death in 1980. We would visit him and his family in Cincinnati where he had his practice many, many times through the 1950s, 60s, and into the mid 70s. He worked on all of us, especially my mother, and taught Dad what he could, as best an M.D. could learn from a D.O..

    I have my Dad’s hammer for those of you who knew Dr. Fulford well, you know what I mean. Few learned how to use it though. Dr. Fulford taught me in the 70s how to use it and I still use it once in a while on myself or my family.

    Dad was a little lost when Dr. Fulford moved to Tucson, AZ due to his own problems with gout. I understand he did a great work out there. He visited each time he came back east. After my father passed away, Dr. Fulford would still come to visit with Mom for days at a time between speaking engagements. He even came once to my home in Pennsylvania with her to work on my family in the mid 1980s.

    What I witnessed and learned myself from Dr. Fulford was awesome throughout the 60s and 70s as a teenager and young adult. There are so many stories of what he did for my family and patients of my Dad’s I could probably write a short article myself. He was a truly incredible healer and maintaind a commanding presence. Though, he was very humble as well. Very humble.

    I highly recommend reading his book and perform any of the preventive maintenance activities you can. You will be in better health.

    May God Bless Dr. Fulford, his wife Glenna and sons Rich and David.

    This review is from: Dr. Fulford’s Touch of Life: The Healing Power of the Natural Life Force (Paperback)

    This book was written in the December year’s of an accomplished osteopathic physician’s life. It is his call for everyone to take responsibility for their life and their health. It starts out as an explanation of osteopathy and a retelling of his years as an osteopathic physician. Fulford had trained his hands to be such sensitive diagnostic and healing tools, that he could feel a single strand of hair hidden beneath 17 sheets of paper. He used this technique to train other osteopathic students to increase the sensitivity of their own hands.

    This book is interwoven with touching stories of patients he’s helped throughout his practice. As he aged, he found that he could only work with an increasingly younger population, as those patients fed his energy. Whereas adults seemed to be so entangled in their own web of stress and disease, that they seemed to zap his energy as he tried to treat them with his hands.

    The book ends with a call to live healthier, more meaningful lives. I recommend this book for everyone, but particularly for osteopathic medical school applicants and their M.D. counterparts. It gives a good narrative explanation of the philosophical expectations of osteopathic medicine. But as a strong believer in osteopathic medicine, and as a future osteopathic medical student, I believe this book poignantly elicits the direction in which medical care should be heading.

    A sincere and thoughtful approach to life…., February 25, 1999
    By A Customer
    This review is from: Dr. Fulford’s Touch of Life: The Healing Power of the Natural Life Force (Paperback)

    Dr. Fulford is someone you hate to see eventually leave this world. It’s just so hard to find people with his mental outlook let alone skills. I came away with a sense of all those things that are missing. Sometimes what you don’t know… can’t hurt you. But ignorance is not bliss and I would rather know what options there are. I was particularly fascinated by early traumas manifesting as physical ailments later in life. I have had a few as most people I am sure but I wonder if they could be related…. and I would need to find someone of Dr. Fulford’s calibre to even begin to explore the possibilty. I enjoyed the anectodotal stories and even the preachy parts on the evils of HMOs. A kind, gentle caring individual Dr. Fulford is trying to at least tell you what you should strive to achieve and that’s about all anyone can do.
