Dr. Lorraine Day has evidence that bateria in your body can undergo a transformation like a caterpillar to become a fungus or virus to attempt to fix a problem in the body and then transform back its mission is complete. I forgot the name of the process and the doctors who proved it and also proved the germ theory is a load of stool. Maze of alternative medicine video from Drday.com has it in there.
Any ways the other fellow is right that the blood stream must be made strong again. Barefoot herbalist goes into detail on the subject of becomeing strong again.
I would like to further mention a fellow I met whom had severe athletes foor for 30 years and finally was able to succesfully get rid of it using a pure oil blend (VALOR)from http://www.youngliving.com #407126 free to sign up via phone. Most get the Success kit 3160 for 50$ for the year to enjoy the whole cost. For those think that these are costly, I have to ask what is the difference between cost and value. I use to spend hundreds of dollars a month on herbs that barely did what the pure oil can do in a fraction of the time.
Also if you ever seen someone with severe scoliosis, you should know that there is some kind of infection there and actually so many have dormant viruses, bacteria, etc that rest on the nerves and become active when the immune system becomes week. Some of these little beings are there to help get rid of what you should not have put in the first place and some are just taking advantage.
There have been cases of Raindrop therapy completly healing scolioses... the process is nothing short of amazing and if you want the nitty gritty details please ask the company for a Physicians desk referance for oils... trust me you'll want it and becareful cause they have a tendancy to grow legs.
