I don't know of herbs for this, but the issue is more to do with movement than with body chemistry, pathogens, the kinds of things I think of as herbal matters.  I'm not allowed to suggest that movement education is intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease, but I would say you may want to do a web search about movement education and scoliosis, and see what other people with this condition have found helpful.  One teacher of the Alexander Technique of movement described its working on the principle that "if you stop banging your head against a wall it will probably stop hurting." How you move can't magically instantly change your structure, but there are choices of how you move within a given structure and some can be significantly preferable to others.  Is this helpful?

I will let her know, thank you. She did have extensive physical therapy to the degree, that she was even in special school for 2 years during middle school years specially organized for children with spinal issues.

Having spent over a decade researching human health I've come to learn that most health conditions can be reversed and healed if one is dedicated enough to the process.  To get to the point where the body begins to heal itself it needs to be clean internally, and the quickest way to achieve this is with a high fruit all raw produce diet, with plenty of juice fasting/feasting and dry fasting interspersed.  When the body is fueled with fruit and has days of fasting, it will begin to remove waste debris that's been accumulating for years.  It's truly a whole body approach, but the place to start to focus with herbs would be the kidneys and lymphatic system.  Get the kidneys to start removing waste and then you can begin to target the lymphatic system.  The lymphatic system is what removes all the cellular waste, and it all filters to the kidneys to be expelled.  So it's important to ensure the kidneys are filtering out the waste before stirring everything else up.

Here's a man, Dr. Morse, that has over 40 years of experience helping people learn how to cleanse their body so they can heal.  I picked a video and jumped it forward to the bit on scoliosis, if you search his channel you'll find other videos on the topic.  I've listened to quite a few of his videos throughout the years and I've heard a lot of stories of people he's worked with whose skeletal structures aligned as they should.

I can't seem to embed a video to start at a specific time, so here's a link that will go directly to the start of the topic.

Q&A - 380 - Scoliosis.......


Jump forward to 9:05 on the embedded video below to get to the topic.

Thank you so much for posting the video, Joshua! It introduced me to Dr. Morse and I have now watched a couple of his other videos. I very much appreciate his authenticity and passion, as well as, of course, his decades of experience working with people to help them heal naturally of an incredible amount of different ailments. Really amazing and I'm looking forward to delving deeper into the information he so generously has been freely sharing on his youtube channel for so many years.
 
We should throw him a surprise party. It will cheer him up. We can use this tiny ad:
