UN PROGRAMME DE NUTRITION ET D'EXERCICES COMPLETEMENT NATUREL, SUR ET APPROUVE POUR LE TRAITEMENT ET LA PREVENTION DE LA SCOLIOSE !

La deuxième édition de ce livre a été entièrement revue et mise à jour.

Cette édition a été mise à jour grâce aux dernières recherches réalisées dans ce domaine et contient plus de 90 pages d'exercices qui vous sont présentés par des entraîneurs professionnels.

Elle inclut les bases du programme de correction du Dr Lau : La première partie aborde les connaissances médicales actuelles sur la scoliose, la deuxième partie décrit un programme nutritionnel détaillé et la troisième partie présente un programme d'exercices de correction.

Dans ce livre, vous pourrez :
  • Découvrir les dernières recherches réalisées sur les causes réelles de la scoliose.
  • Découvrir comment le port du corset et la chirurgie se limitent à traiter les symptômes, sans s'attaquer aux causes de la scoliose.
  • Discerner les traitements qui fonctionnent de ceux qui ne fonctionnent pas et apprendre pourquoi.
  • Connaître les symptômes les plus courants chez les patients atteints de scoliose.
  • Apprendre comment un dépistage de scoliose chez l'adolescent peut lui assurer une meilleure qualité de vie dans le futur.
  • Apprendre pourquoi l'absence d'une bonne nutrition entraîne la maladie et affecte la croissance normale de la colonne vertébrale.
  • Lire le seul livre publié dans le monde qui traite de la scoliose en contrôlant la façon dont les gènes liés à la scoliose s'expriment.
  • Comprendre en profondeur le fonctionnement des muscles et des ligaments chez les patients atteints de scoliose.
  • Personnaliser un programme d'exercices adaptés à la nature de votre scoliose et à votre emploi du temps.
  • Découvrir quels sont les exercices les plus efficaces contre la scoliose et ceux que vous devez éviter à tout prix.
  • Profiter de conseils et d'astuces pour modifier votre posture et les mécaniques corporelles afin d'atténuer les douleurs dorsales.
  • Apprendre quelles sont les meilleures positions assise, debout ou pendant la période de sommeil.
  • Enrichir vos connaissances grâce à des patients atteints de scoliose, à travers leurs histoires et des études de cas.

Après des recherches minutieuses et des années de pratique, le Dr Lau est capable de séparer les faits de la fiction. Dans ce livre, il détruit un à un les mythes populaires et explore les approches qui fonctionnent, les alternatives offertes aux patient atteints de scoliose et la possibilité de créer un programme complet pour obtenir un corps et une colonne en bonne santé.

Inspiré par la résistance aux maladies des groupes aborigènes d'Australie et des tribus africaines rarement atteints de scoliose, le Dr Lau prescrit un programme facile à suivre et cliniquement approuvé, qui invite notre corps à revenir vers ce qu'il est censé faire, et vers ce dont il a besoin pour survivre. Ce livre va vous mettre sur le chemin de la guérison totale en suivant simplement trois étapes.

D'après le Dr Lau, « La médecine moderne, à elle seule, a échoué à guérir les maux liés à la scoliose ». « Le traitement que j'ai créé allie anciennes sagesses aux nouvelles technologies et recherches pour obtenir les meilleurs résultats possibles. Aujourd'hui, en tant que chiropraticien et nutritionniste, je suis plus convaincu que jamais que la scoliose et tout autre maladie peuvent être évitées et traitées efficacement ».

A QUI « PRENEZ VOTRE SANTE EN MAIN » EST-IL DESTINE ?

Ce livre est assez simple pour que toute personne dépourvue de connaissances médicales puisse le comprendre mais il est assez évolué et détaillé pour satisfaire les professionnels de fitness et de rééducation.

Eating your way to a healthier spine!

So, you think you’ve tried all options in your crusade against scoliosis? By now, you might have gone through the entire arsenal of bracing, exercise and even surgery. Unfortunately, your curve might still come back to haunt and cause more discomfort than ever before! Before you think, scoliosis correction is all about restoring your spine’s curve; it’s time to review the deformity again! Treating scoliosis requires a comprehensive approach, one which will restore your body’s natural alignment, along with preventing the inevitable spinal degeneration that comes with age.

Nature intended all mechanisms of the human body to function in unison and perfect harmony with each other. With even one of them not working in tandem, abnormalities and deformities are bound to occur.

Food we eat!

A wise man once said, “We are what we eat!” True to the core, it is! Our gut and digestive system form the base for a healthy body and mind. On the contrary, when our food intake comprises of food products that might not be right for our body, the results can be absolutely disastrous! Not only this, even if those food products are otherwise appropriate, they might not just suit your body.

That is where individual body typing comes in! Known as metabolic typing in the specialists’ jargon, it helps you to categorize your own, individual body type into three different categories and plan your food intake accordingly.

Through the metabolic typing, you will know all about…

- Foods and ingredients that are best suite your own genes- Food items that otherwise might be healthy, but are not right for you- Specific food groups that might enhance or deplete your energy levels- Foods that might facilitate your specific health goals, such as weight loss or gain and muscle toning
With such immense benefits of body typing in view, here comes ‘Your Scoliosis Cookbook’ – a one of its kind, never-before guide to customizing your diet and a vast collection of delicious, healthy recipes to suit your palette and treat scoliosis, all at the same time! The book brings to you the amazing and time-tested secrets of the optimal nutrition for spinal health in the form of an easy-to-follow guide. Just follow our step-by-step instructions on how to find out your own body type. Once you are done, all you need to do is to pick up the recipe to suit your taste buds and choose the ingredients according to the results of your Metabolic Type.

Whether you are the carbohydrate, protein or the mixed types, there is something in there, especially for you!

So, just explore, cook and feast!

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."
