Introduction to IBT
Inclined Bed Therapy (IBT) has helped many more people with spinal cord injuries since this video was first shown on the local News. But it is not specific to Spinal cord injuries and has helped people with multiple sclerosis, ccsvi, parkinson's disease, cerebral palsy, psoriasis,varicose veins, oedema,leg ulcer, poor circulation, and many more conditions during 17 years of research.
On the forum, you will find evidence to support this statement from people who have simply tilted their beds.

Andrew K Fletcher aged 53 is an inventor from a mechanical engineering background who applied density changes in sap from evaporation at the leaves of trees to show how a downward gravity flow can induce a returned less dense flow back to the leaves. He applied the same logic to the circulation of all fluids in the body and has researched a radical new approach to medical conditions including MS, “by thinking outside the box”. His new postural approach to illnesses is called “Inclined Bed Therapy” (I.B.T) this is where people raise their beds starting at 4 inches raising after a few weeks 6 to 8 inches at the “head end” aiming for an angle of around 5 degrees. Andrew Explains Why.

"As a retired Physician, I can honestly say that unless you are in a serious accident, your best chance of living to a ripe old age is to avoid doctors and hospitals and learn about nutrition, herbal medicine and other forms of natural medicine unless you are fortunate enough to to have a naturopathic physician available.
Almost all drugs are toxic and are designed only to treat symptoms and not to cure anyone.
Vaccines are highly dangerous, have never been adequately studied or proven to be effective, and have a poor risk / reward ratio.
Most surgery is unnecessary and most textbooks of medicine are inaccurate and deceptive. Almost every disease is said to be idiopathic (without known cause) or genetic-although this is untrue.
In short, our mainstream medical system is hopelessly inept and / or corrupt. The treatment of cancer and degenerative diseases is a national scandal.
The sooner you learn this, the better off you will be."
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
Has Inclined Bed Therapy helped you, a member of your family or a friend, to recover from an illness?
Or has it improved your level of fitness?
IBT is all about sharing our experiences so that others can follow and learn how this simple free therapy can help improve conditions including: denbilitating migraines, sinus and breathing difficulties, heart palpitations and fibrilation, varicose veins, snoring, children wetting the bed, adult inconinence, back ache, fracture, sprains and injuries, skin conditions including psoriasis and acne, leg ulcers, oedema, Parkinson's Disease, Spinal cord injury, Multiple sclerosis, Liver failure, osteoporosis, cerebral palsy, and many more. Raising the head end of the bed works because our circulation requires gravity influencing it in the right direction while we sleep. You can read more about this exciting free none-invasive way of sleeping here: http://inclinedbedtherapy.com
Please help us to get the word out about IBT and reach many more people.

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.
http://inclinedbedtherapy.com for Free information 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.
