Robert Fulford, D.O. (1905-1997) was an important, if enigmatic, figure in late twentieth-century osteopathy. Trained at the Kansas City School of Osteopathy and Surgery (class of 1941), he was a strong believer in the -triune- nature of man---physical, mental, and spiritual---and the importance of diagnosing and treating the whole person, not just the physical symptoms. Dr. Fulford's career was a testament to this ideal, what A.T. Still called the philosopher physician. In the mid-1940s he studied cranial osteopathy with William Garner Sutherland and became a lifelong member (and one-time president) of The Cranial Academy. During the course of a practice that spanned six decades he explored a wide spectrum of scientific and philosophical ideas about the basis and mechanics of life. Nothing was off limits---field theory, Aryuvedic medicine, biomagnetics, psychological and subtle energy medicine, crystals. Always he followed Sutherland's advice to -dig on, - integrating whatever was useful into the practice of what he termed -twenty-first century medicine.-

This new clinical guide is the first and only in-depth resource on the subject, offering a comprehensive analysis of osteopathic dysfunctions and principles in the cranial field.

Excellent illustrations and step-by-step sequencing of techniques make this book an exceptionally valuable resource for clinical practice.

Gastrointestinal tract dysfunction such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is one of the most common intestinal complaints that prompts an individual to consult a doctor. However, ambiguities in defining it and slow accumulation of evidence on the benefits of treatment have made this syndrome notoriously difficult to diagnose and treat. Our goal has been to prepare a text that provide an overview of IBS and the main concepts and practice of osteopathy and nutrition. The result is a book, which presents IBS management using OMT, dietary modifications, and nutritional supplements according to current evidence-based literature. We have also added some appendices on practical applications which might then serve as a simple treatment plan for a broad range of healthcare professionals including osteopaths, physiotherapists, manual therapists, sports science graduates, massage and bodywork therapists and nutritionists, to reduce the chronic pain and inflammation that are associated with IBS.
