Nephi Livesay Cottam (December 5, 1883 - February 6, 1966) was an American chiropractic and founder of craniopathy, a method of skull suture adjustment for the elimination of "brain sand" and the promotion of general well-being that he stated was given to him by "The Monitor," described as being an inner voice.

Cottam was cited by Michael X. Barton as "Dr. C." in his writings, including Venusian Health Magic (1959) and Rainbow City and the Inner Earth People (1960). In the latter work, Cottam was the relater of claims said to have been made to him by a patient of Nordic extraction, this man having claimed to have voyaged from Norway up through the Arctic Circle and into the hollow earth, where, the anonymous patient said, he had remained for a year in the company of highly-advanced giants.
