Symptoms, conditions and causes

What is the reason for scoliosis, kyphosis and lordosis?

Scoliosis, kyphosis and lordosis are abnormal curves of your spine that can cause a lot of difficulties and pain, especially in your back.


  • Scoliosis: s-curve of the spine

  • Kyphosis: hunched back

  • Lordosis: lower back curved too far in

Cause #1: Vitamin D deficiency

Vitamin D has a lot to do with your skeletal structure as well as with bone health. If you are deficient in vitamin D this can cause scoliosis, kyphosis and lordosis--along with other problems.

Vitamin D increases the absorption of calcium by 20 times. Also consuming vitamin K2 will increase the movement of free calcium in the blood to the needed tissues and bones.


  • Take vitamin D (at least 10,000 IU / day)

  • Get more exposure to the sun

  • Take virgin cod liver oil

  • Take vitamin K2 (MK7 version)

  • (Note: if you have digestive problems due to celiac or some kind of small-intestine damage, or due to a history of antibiotics, I suggest taking a liquid vitamin D supplement.)

Other causes:

  • Lack of calcium

  • Congenital (happened before you were born)
