From the Author:

During the writing of Health In Your Hands - Your Plan for Natural Scoliosis Prevention and Treatment 2 years ago I kept a journal of my progress. In total over the writing process I wrote 12 blog posts about the trials and tribulations of the writing process. Below I have posted the first and last post. For the rest please visit my blog. Notice how the title has since changed. I wish everyone enjoys the book as much as I have enjoyed researching and writing it!

Warm Regards,
Dr Kevin Lau DC


April 2, 2008
First Journal Entry
Sometime ago, I read somewhere that the birth of a book is no different from the birth of a baby. The author necessarily goes through the same trials, tribulations and birth pangs, as a woman in labor; or perhaps worse, as was experiences with my first book on Curing Scoliosis Naturally.

Since it was my first "pregnancy" the doubts and apprehensions of being able to put my ideas to paper as succinctly as I wanted, weighed heavy on my mind, even as I struggled to brush aside those nagging thoughts and gamely strove to clear all the cobwebs, before rolling up my sleeves to get down to the more serious business of actual writing.

At the outset, since I had no clear agenda or plan in my head, except for my intense desire to help my patients by sharing with them every bit of information that I had painstakingly gathered in my head and through my practical experiences of working with virtually hundreds of scoliosis patients, besides what I randomly picked from medical journals, I decided to begin with an outline, a more formal content plan.
At this point, I decided that I wanted to write not one, but two books, one devoted exclusively to nutritional research --- essentially detailing the good and bad that we derive from food, while dispelling the prevailing myth that there could be a uniform, one-size-fits-all diet for every person on this planet.

In my view, and here I am speak on authority, one of the biggest myth amidst us is that there could be one, "healthy" diet plan for all; a "fix-all" for all health-related problems. On the contrary, as I have explained in my book there is now enough research (I have meticulously marshaled and presented these scientific evidences in my book) to establish that since each one of us is significantly different from the other in terms of genetic make-up and our cultural practices and environmental exposure; our nutritional needs and requirements are also vastly different. Indeed as different as chalk from cheese.

Therefore, if your doctor, dietitian or chiropractor is unable to help you figure out what your exact nutritional requirements are --- in terms of the exact proportion of proteins, fats and carbohydrates that you should be consuming every day --- he/she is doing a disservice to you. Your doctor is in fact also holding back one of the best-kept secrets of the medical world, and that is that diet plans can not be mass marketed and work on everyone.
In my considered vie (and I have strong evidence in support of it) diet plans have to be customized to individual patients in order to be of any use to them. This is as true for patients of scoliosis, as anybody else.

I for all my patients starting a program with me I often struggle to disclose and share all the information I have with these hapless girls and their parents and wish I had some sort of ready literature to thrust into their hands, explaining why bracing or surgery is not effective; and that there could be a much more simpler, easier and a painless way of straightening a curved spine, such as the choice of the right food and a few corrective exercises.

All this marked the first stirrings of an idea in my head.

And that's how this book, "The Scoliosis Cure" was born. Title needs a bit of work but that will do for now.

Final thoughts...

Today, I realize that I could be a writer; and a fairly good one at that. I can best express my feelings through writing. I write not only for personal satisfaction, but also to help my patients.

Therefore my writing has a concrete purpose. It gives me the maximum satisfaction. And the fodder for my writing comes from reading.

I am a voracious reader of books, magazines, journals; whatever I can lay my hands or eyes on.

In a manner, there is a strong connect between my writing and reading habit. The inspiration to write is usually derived from whatever literature I may have happed to read at a particular time. This also reminds me of Newton's Third law of Motion: Every action has an equal and opposite reaction. So, if there is some input in the form of reading, at some point of time there also has to be some output in the form of writing. Perhaps that's the reason why all great novelists and authors invariably have a reading habit.

What fuels their active churnings are not just their thoughts but also the ideas they randomly picked from other people, which in my case happen to be my patients. Reading, observing and interacting with my patients are a cycle through which most of my learning evolves.

Because of the skills I have gained though my observations, reading and writing, I am able to bring more confidence and trust into my relationship with my patients. It improves my skills as a doctor and I am able to connect better with my patients. Eventually, it makes me feel more alive. I feel worthy of learning and doing more.

Learn This 3 Step Formula to Straighten Your Scoliosis


Step 1: Identify the Cause
The first thing you need to do is identify the biochemical and structural imbalances that have created your scoliosis. You can easily do this with the help of a series of "self assessments" outlined in this book.

Step 2: Treat the Symptoms of Scoliosis
While a majority of patients do not manifest any symptoms of pain early on, these gradually become evident as the disease advances, or as you age. You can't correct the problem if your pain is so severe that you can't move a muscle. This book will reveal various strategies with the help of which you can reduce and manage your pain so that you remain focused on correcting the underlying dysfunction(s) that are the main cause of your scoliosis.

Step 3: Treat the Cause and Condition
Next, you will learn how to treat the cause of your scoliosis by correcting your body chemistry and structural imbalances while following a nutritional and an exercise plan that is tailored to your particular condition.
