When we talk about idiopathic scoliosis, it is by definition having no known cause. While I discuss scoliosis treatments on this blog, I believe it is necessary to express my concerns about treating one symptom without addressing the other potential issues that could be occurring in the body. I wonder if scoliosis patients have other health concerns that might not be addressed in scoliosis treatment.

Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.

I recently came across literature, that I will review in detail in future posts, that speak to the nutritional needs of people with scoliosis. I have to say this very idea is absolutely fascinating as it speaks to a nutrient deficiency in people with scoliosis. As this blog evolves, I am taking it in the direction of how to identify an individual’s specific nutritional needs based on their unique digestive makeup and how we can take steps together to identify the proper path to healing.

And to do that, I need your help :)
