  1. Asparagus – Asparagus cooks quickly and goes well with almost any meal – saute it, steam it, grill it, or roast it. It’s packed with antioxidants and natural cleansing abilities – so toss some in your morning omelet or use it as a side dish at dinner.

The scoliosis back brace is generally the treatment that is used for any curves which attain twenty-five degrees. Once the physician determines that wearing a brace is the right treatment then the child will usually have to wear a back brace until their spine quits growing, which can mean that it will be worn for many years. Most of these braces have to be worn all the time, even during sleep. They can be taken off when they take a shower or bath. It is very important that they wear the back brace all the time because the objective is to keep their spine aligned properly at all times. This helps encourage the spine to grow straight.

Before Lasik Surgery is performed

  1. Get your feet wet.
  2. Stand on a flat surface where your footprint will show, such as on a concrete walkway.
