With painstaking research and years of practice, Dr. Lau separates fact from fiction. In this book, he busts popular myths, one by one, and explores what approach works, what alternatives a scoliosis patient has and how it is possible to create a comprehensive plan to achieve peak physical and spinal health.
Inspired by the extraordinary resilience of the Aboriginal groups of Australia and native African tribes that rarely suffer from scoliosis, Dr. Lau prescribes an easy-to-follow, clinically proven program that harks back to what our bodies were originally designed for and need to survive on. This book will set you on the path to total recovery by simply following the three-step process.
"Modern medicine, alone, has failed to effectively manage the condition of Scoliosis," said Dr. Lau. “The treatment program I designed combines ancient wisdom with modern research and technology, culminating in the best overall results. Today, as a practicing chiropractor and nutritionist, I am more certain than ever that scoliosis, and other disorders, can be prevented and treated effectively."

"I strongly recommend Dr. Lau's natural program as an effective and better alternative to conventional bracing and surgery. I am very impressed with the results! I think that every spinal specialist will find the information contained in this book useful." - Dr. Kwan, Medical Director

"I highly recommend Dr. Lau’s natural scoliosis program as a safer and more effective alternative to the conventional bracing and surgery that is commonly recommended. I am very impressed with the results I have seen! I think that every spinal specialist needs this information."
Dr. Alan Kwan, D.O. Medical Director
"As an Orthopaedic Surgeon, I usually recommend surgical treatments for scoliosis as the last recourse. Most scoliosis sufferers do not meet the parameters of a surgical candidate and should seek more conservative measures. Dr. Lau’s program is a safe and painless alternative for scoliosis patients and has merit. I would recommend trying Dr. Lau’s non-surgical scoliosis correction program."
- Dr. Gul Keng, M.D. Orthopaedic Surgeon
"Dr. Kevin Lau presents the facts in a logical and rational sequence. I appreciated that his tips were easy to follow and relatively fuss-free. It did not require me to spend extra time, efforts and budget to re-invent my diet, but I just need to be more mindful in my proportions and nutrients intake. He is right to say that dieting did not have to burn a hole in my pocket. Hence, thank you, Dr. Lau, for giving readers like me such valuable and sensible health insights."
- Wendy Y.
"Initially I was really dubious about Dr. Lau’s scoliosis program, fearful of the fat in the diet. But I gave it a go. After about four weeks on the new diet, I started to really feel the benefits. My energy levels went up, the pain in my back disappeared, I now sleep all night without waking up, I no longer have cravings for chocolate or cheesecake, I feel great and I have lost 3kgs without even trying to lose it."
- Isla W.
"Backache had plagued me for more than 20 years. I thought it was due to bad posture
or work-related. Acupuncture and massage only gave me temporary relief. I began my
treatment with Dr. Kevin Lau 6 months after I had an X-ray taken. he results were
beyond my expectation, 8 degrees in the thorax and 12 degrees in the lumbar and taller
- Lucy K
"Dr. Lau is a kind-hearted man who understands the problems and pains sufered by his
patients. He put his heart and soul in treating his patients. He shows concern and monitors
the progress of his patients constantly. After Dr. Lau’s program, I realized that my back
problem and my health have improved. My overall conditions have improved. At long last,
I have found someone who can help me in alleviating my back problem."
- Christie C.
"To me, the whole experience of the treatments meant much more than the 15 degrees of
correction in my spine. I felt that in many ways I was blessed, and I learnt to have faith that
there is a solution somewhere for any problem. Taking that on a very general estimate the
scoliosis in an adult worsen by one degree per year, the corrections have perhaps saved me
fifteen years... even if it is less, I am sincerely thankful for it"
- Cher C.
"Finally! I was independently healthy and pain free, the knowledge he offered me allowed
me to sustain the health and wellbeing that I never thought I could have."
