Introduction to IBT
I first read about this, before I got involved in the Internet while researching the effects of gravity on our circulation.
While it is almost beyond our imagination that people would choose to do this to themselves in the belief that it would somehow reconcile themselves with their gods is beyond my level of comprehension. Nevertheless I am grateful that this act has illustrated the beneficial driving force behind life, the force that drives our circulation, the force that powers all of our vital function and indeed the circulation in every living organism on this planet and beyond. That force is gravity!
Yet science and medicine for whatever reason, remains ignorant to this fact. Indeed they erroneously consider gravity to be the weakest force. Gravity cannot be measured against any other force, because gravity is not like any other force and therefore comparing dissimilar forces is a waste of time. For example, what has created those other forces? The answer of course is gravity!
The medical profession advises people that have a broken arm, for example, to raise it in a sling and keep the hand up near the chest. When the plaster cast is removed after 6-8 weeks, the arm exhibits extensive muscle loss when compared to the uninjured arm and requires physiotherapy, all of which places a heavy burdon on both patient and the Health Services.
This in fact happend to my son's arm, where he broke his wrist and complied with the Doctors advice. He of course followed the path mentioned above. 1 Year later Jimmy breaks the same wrist again, but this time require an extra 2 weeks in plaster due to having a metal plate inserted.
Dare To Dream is Tony Moran's motto. Tony reveals how Inclined Bed Therapy (IBT) http://inclinedbedtherapy.com helped his dreams to come true when against all the odds he became the new Cruiserweight Boxing WBF World Champion. His opponent Sandy Robb is a 3 times ABA champion, who fought with everything he had over 12 gruelling rounds at a pace that any 32 year old boxer would be proud of. But Moran, who is now 42 and giving away 10 years to Robb, fought like a 25 year old and was as fit and active in round 12 as he was in the first round. He moved around the ring jabbing with precision and unleashing powerful combination punches that would have knocked out a lesser man.
During 12 rounds, https://youtu.be/F0FicS5TBus Moran under advice from Andrew K Fletcher, stood in the corner, ignoring the seconds advise to sit down, he also lowered his hands wherever possible due to a new understanding of how gravity plays a vital role in our circulation.
Very important research into spinal cord injury nerve regeneration by Ron Meyor a great scientist who I admire very much.
Meyor severed the optic nerve of fish and frog and showed that nerve regeneration occurs in both species. He compared this to mammals, where nerve regeneration of the optic nerve does not occur. What Meyor missed, is that in both fish and frog, the nerve pathway to regeneration remains constant. In other words, the fish and frog remain upright so that the angle from the eye to the brain is inline with the direction of gravity and it's influence on circulation in the optic nerve.
Mammals on the other hand, like ourselves, continually change their posture so while the nerves still grow, the gravitational signals and the driving force for growth confuses the nerve endings sending them in all directions.
Meyor then removes the nerves from the mammals and shows in a special culture dish that the mammalian nerves do grow in what appears to be an inclined culture dish, which he refers to as "special circumstances" The nerve is observed to grow past a horizontally placed nerve, unable to make a connection. A simple way to test this in a laboratory would be to have rats with damaged spinal cords in wheeled wire frames, so they can move around freely but remain in the upright position with their spines at an angle down at 5 degrees.
But wait, we don't need to do animals studies any more. The recent breakthrough seen in Brazil and elsewhere, where patients with spinal cord injuries are provided with a vertical device that enables them to remain upright and mobile for longer periods has shown that nerves do regenerate and connections are made to restore sensitivity, bowel and bladder control and mobility.
I rest my case !!!!!

How trees really raise water to their leaves! And Much More at: http://inclinedbedtherapy.com
These Simple experiments with water filled tubes not only show how trees and all plants use a simple flow and return system to circulate sap, they will help you to understand how gravity drives your circulation and why we need to pay careful attention to our posture when sleeping and sitting. Gravity supplies trees and plants with the force to raise water to impressive heights without any need for a pump. And yet until recently, that connection has not been linked to our own circulation?
We are not just talking about blood circulation. The flow of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) throughout the huge network of nerves, from the top of your head to the tips of your toes is influenced by gravity! The direction damaged nerves grow and regenerate is linked to gravity! The flow of lymph in your lymphatic system depends on posture and gravity to effectively remove waste from your body, via the veins and venous return.
How we make use of this new understanding of circulation is surprisingly simple and costs nothing. Simply raising the head end of your bed 15cm / 6 inches will support and improve your circulation while you sleep. This is called Inclined Bed Therapy and these experiments were used to determine the 5 degree angle for both comfort and effect.

INCLINED BED THERAPY A NEW ANGLE ON HEALTH
Sleeping on a bed inclined at five degrees has great benefits for circulation, metabolism and the immune system. It can also ease a range of conditions from Alzheimer's disease, diabetes and glaucoma
to migraines, multiple sclerosis and varicose veins.

Right Angle Triangle Calculator showing height and angle of Standard King Size Bed US & Canada Click link to check your bed and enter Length plus Guess Height. If wrong, reset and change height until 5 degrees is achieved. Simplest method of working out the optimum angle for inclined bed therapy (IBT).
Because you are tilting the whole bed, the measurement you need for a and b "small case" is the length of your bed frame for "b" and the height that you added to raise your bed for "a"
1. You need to enter the length of your bed, if you are using inches, convert into centimetres and enter in the field "Side b" Thats the horizontal line
2. Guess the height that you want to raise your bed, again if using inches convert into centimetres and enter in the vertical line representing the head end of your bed - field "Side a"
3. Click Calculate
4. If angle is not your choice, click clear values and re-enter bed length in cm and try adding or subtracting height of bed raise in field "Side a" Repeat until correct angle is achieved.
This calculator is designed to give the two unknown factors in a right triangle, assuming two factors are known. This calculator is for a right triangle only! The factors are the lengths of the sides and one of the two angles, other than the right angle. All values should be in positive values but decimals are allowed and valid. Fill in two (only two) values then click on Calculate. The other two other modifiable values will be filled in, along with the angle 3 field. In a triangle, all interior angles total to 180 degrees. No two angles can total to 180 degrees or more. Angle C is always 90 degrees; angle 3 is either angle B or angle A, whichever is NOT entered. Angle 3 and Angle C fields are NOT user modifiable.
Again, this right triangle calculator works when you fill in 2 fields in the triangle angles, or the triangle sides. Angle C and angle 3 cannot be entered.The range that IBT works well with is around 5 degrees, though this is an approximation / round up.
On a 2 meter bed for example we enter the height of the head end of the bed as 15 and the horizontal plane of the bed as 200 for metric measurements.
This gives an angle of 4.29
Raising the same bed by 20cm will give an angle of 5.71
Our original bed measured 202 cm long, excluding upright head and foot-board. It is raised 17 cm higher at the head end than the foot end. Using the calculator provided it gives an angle of 4.81 degrees to the horizontal. What angle is your bed?
Your body however will tell you when you find the right angle for you. The higher the angle the more sheer forces we introduce and the more we decompress the spine. The trade off is of course comfort and sliding down the bed. The Egyptian beds were raised 6 inches / 15 cm higher at the head end. Guess they knew a thing or two about sleeping and circulation.
Inclined Bed Therapy can have a profound positive, restorative affect on a persons health.
You will probably be able to find books / blocks of wood, bricks. plastic pipe cut to length and slipped over bed legs, for free, though purchasing plastic bed / furniture risers for 10 - 15 $£ won't break the bank and are useful for popping inside suitcase when away from home.
If you try this please keep a journal noting everything down that changes negative or positive observations will be useful to help you determine what is happening.
If you have varicose veins, take some photographs. take note of your muscles, or if you have poor finger / toe nails. Oedema / edema also responds well, which might sound counter-intuitive. Take a sample of your hair and nails for comparison over the coming months.
Kind regards Andrew K Fletcher

It's simple! Raise the head end of your bed by 6 Inches (15cm) and reap the rewards of health and improved circulation, It costs nothing but a couple of books or bricks? perhaps a few pieces of wood? or Furniture raisers to take advantage of Gravity and it's role in circulation.
Some observed results:-
Improved Circulation and health throughout, Diabetic sensitivity reduced, Return of Sensation to numbed areas, Psoriasis and skin inflammations drastically reduced, Varicose Veins disappearing, Improved recovery and defences to common bugs, virus and germs, Improved recovery from DOMS after a hard workout,
huge improvements in people with Multiple Sclerosis Bed wetting stops, bladder and bowl control restored, people with Parkinson's Disease experienced huge improvements, people with spinal cord injuries have gained function and sensation below the injury site. Sleep apnoea greatly improved and vanished in some cases. back ache gone, migraines a thing of the past, lethargy gone, muscular atrophy reversed, osteoporosis reversed, insomnia cured, night time visits to the toilet greatly improved, no more cold hands and feet in bed, tremors gone,
but to name a few.... read the Testimonials to learn more and more things it is starting to affect? Can it help you? It has helped us!
We have recently started a campaign to help Andrew, who has been researching IBT for 20 years, to raise awareness and reach out to more people with health problems and people who would like to avoid getting the health problems!
Andrew has advocated for 19 years that placing babies in an inclined cot would eliminate sudden infant death syndrome. Using a pair of dad's boxer shorts tied to the sides of a cot / crib and placing baby inside them would prevent slipping down during the night.
We are asking for your support! Nominate us to
TED and help me tell my story to many more people in need of help.

A truly remarkable scientific discovery explains what Your Doctor Should Know About Sleeping, sitting and circulation and advice about improving your health, well-being, strength and endurance without drugs. What are you waiting for?
Inclined bed therapy began 5 thousand years ago in Ancient Egypt and perhaps even further back. It involves tilting your bed, raising it on blocks, books, bricks, or furniture raisers by six inches / 15 cm or more depending on the length of your bed, to cause your bed frame to be tilted by around 5 degrees
Andrew's discovery in how gravity helps drive our circulation is unprecedented, yet eloquently simple to understand and is explained in great detail on this excellent Internet Radio Interview by Andy Young on Peoples Internet Radio.
Do you wake up feeling refreshed after a good nights sleep or like so many of us, do you struggle to get to sleep and find it uncomfortable and wake up feeling worse in the mornings?
Do you look in the mirror and see a healthy looking face when you get up or do you see puffy eyes?
Do you suffer from migraine headaches and find that the drugs are no use at all? You will find the reasons why in this interview.
Ever wondered how sap rises up tall trees and become confused by the explanations in the text books? Andrew brings a refreshing take on how sap circulates in all plants and trees by harnessing gravity, the very force that science suggests trees struggle against.
He explains how a simple experiment with 6mm bore plastic tubing caused water to flow up a cliff to 24 metres using only a pinch of salt and no pump whatsoever.
Answers to sudden infant death syndrome, parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, spinal cord injury, varicose veins, edema, back ache, mending broken bones quickly and recovering from a wide range of sports injuries requires gravity.
He also touches on how astronauts in space age ten times faster than here on Earth and enlightens us to how NASA pay $17,000 dollars to encourage young people to spend months on end confined to a bed that is tilted down to induce the same age acceleration faced by astronauts.
This really is a unique gem of an interview that will change how you look at all living species forever.
It will also change how you perceive your own posture, especially when you lay down in your flat bed
You will find Andrew in the forum at http://inclinedbedtherapy.com on Twitter: thinklateral and on Facebook He is happy to help answer all questions so please don't be shy ask away in the comments section.
