About Veronica Esagui

Dr.Veronica Esagui was born in Lisbon, Portugal. She found her career in chiropractic (literally by accident) when she was told she needed back surgery, following a lifting injury. She felt the results first hand. Not needing any drugs or surgery to accomplish her personal miracle, she decided to go back to school and help others in the same way she had been helped. While treating a couple of young patients with scoliosis, she developed The Esagui Scoliosis Protocol (TESP), a very specific group of exercises which, along with chiropractic adjustments, proved to help reverse scoliosis.

In 2010 she published the first book of Veronica's Diary series, Veronica's Diary, the Journey of Innocence. In this first person narrative, Veronica Esagui, tells her own story, in her own voice through the ages of her youth, spinning a fascinating yarn of intrigue, resilience, control, heartbreak, and fatalism. She describes in the most candid manner the first eighteen years of her life, growing up in Portugal until she came to the USA in 1962. She learns at a very young age that she has no freedom to date or marry who she likes and that there are no friends to turn to. Veronica's mother works out an arrangement with her sister Nelly who lives in the US; a pre-arranged marriage is set up between Veronica and Nelly's son.
