Shocked.

Hi all, have inclined our bed and the results are as follows, we have had some good results, my wifes veins have sucked in a bit, we have no aches when getting up in the morning, we both dont snore as much, my wifes feet are looking a bit better {her feet are minging, dry skin and bad flakey nails} my cough that I have had since October has gone so helps with the lungs, and I had onset Glaucoma but in has gone too, the pressures in my eyes were 24 and 26, anything 22 and over is a red alert, they have now decreased to 14 and 16 and my field of vision test has gone from 62% to 100%. I was so pleased I burst out laughing and told my optician what I had done, and she stated that studies have shown that wearing tight collars and ties can contribute to Glaucoma causing head pressure so raising the bed was quite feasible.

Also my sister does not have to get up in the night to pee no more and gets a full nights sleep, she has never ever had a full nights sleep previously. Will get back to you all if any our things happen.

I am amazed Digestion Diarrhea Improved Using IBT

I first read about IBT because I thought it was about Irritable Bowels and I thought it was some type of new therapy for the bowels. Well, it turned out to be about my bowels afterall.

I decided to try the incline for my constant muscle pain. I didn't have anything to lose; just some books to put under my bed. My bed is only raised 3" at this point. I need someone to lift the bed so I can add the additional inches and finding that someone has proved to be difficult.

My pain is still constant, however, my bowels are now 100% better. For four years straight I had diarrhea almost every day. If I went anywhere, I wore an adult diaper garment. On Dec. 18, 2016 my bed was raised 3 inches. One Dec. 19th I did not have diarrhea. Today is Feb. 26, 2017 and I have not had any bowel issues since I raised my bed. This is amazing to me and totally unexpected.

I just wanted to share what a little bit of incline can do for you. I am looking forward to finding out what the 6" incline will do for me. I might have to go to the store and buy a couple of car jacks and get my bed at the correct height.

15 Days IBT Pain + Sleep Quality

Hi,

Title: 15 days already!

Good evening everyone,

New in the use of the inclined bed therapy, I'm at the end of 15 days pleasantly surprised!

I had inguinal hernia surgery 4 years ago and it threw me for some time more. Since the IBT, finished the pain in just 3 days: magical!

Also I decreased my hours of sleep while being at the top in the day! I no longer have the usual 8 am but only 5 hours and still in great shape in the day!

I noticed a higher therm night before makes me get up once a night but no problem ré réendormissement then!

That is for me the benefits of IBT to date.

Good luck in the raised position of 15 cm for my case.

TLIment

your  Thierry

Original French Testimonial


Bonsoir à tous,

 

Nouveau dans l'utilisation de la Thrapie du lit incliné, j'en suis au bout de  15 jours surpris agréablement !

J'ai une herrnie inguinale dont j'ai été opérée il y  4 ans et qui me lançait depuis quelques temps de plus en plus. Depuis la TLI, fini la douleur, en à peine 3 jours : magique !

De plus j'ai diminué mes heures de sommeil tout en étant au top dans la journée ! je n'ai plus besoin des 8 h habituelles mais de 5 h seulement  et toujours en grande forme dans la journée !

 

J'ai remarqué une thermie nocturne plus élevée qu'avant qui me  fait me lever une fois par nuit mais aucun problème de réendormissement ensuite !

 

Voilà pour moi les bienfaits de la TLI à ce jour.

 

Bonne continuation dans cette position relevée de 15 cm pour mon cas.

 

TLIment votre

Thierry

Everyone Should Be Sleeping Inclined Liver function, sleep quality, muscle tone, posture, immune system, sexual function,

My wife and I started IBT about 10 months ago and have been delighted with the results so far. We are both in our early fifties and have always been fairly healthy and active. So far the results are:

  • Much lower incidence of snoring
  • Improved liver function (I know because alcohol affects me less now)
  • Better sleep quality
  • Much improved sexual function
  • Improved muscle tone
  • Improved posture
  • Rarely get sick
  • and the most incredible of all - we have both grown over 1cm. How do I know? By coincidence we measured our heights a month before starting IBT and decided to measure our heights just recently and discovered we had grown! This probably indicates spinal disc regeneration.

Any one who does not use IBT is an absolute fool considering it's free. I tell friends and acquaintances about its benefits but I mostly get strange stares like I'm mad. I know who the mad ones are! Thanks for putting this information out there, it's a life-changer!

IBT Definitely Works! depression, sciatica, restless legs syndrome,

I'd just like to share my very positive experience with IBT so that others may benefit from it too. I was a bit sceptical at first, but thought I'd give it a try, raising the bed with books (!) just to see. I slept so much better, my restless leg syndrome and the sciatica in my left leg which used to wake me up several times in the night just seemed to disappear, and I woke up happy and refreshed. I was hooked. To cut a long story short, I had a couple of bed raisers made by a local carpenter (you can't buy them here in Egypt) with a groove to fit the bed legs into. Perhaps the best outcome of all - and I don't know if anyone else has experienced the same thing - is that I seem to be in a constant good mood whereas I used to suffer from occasional bouts of severe depression. I don't know whether it's just sleeping better, or whether it's the IBT itself, perhaps Andrew could give us an answer on that one, but whichever it is, I'm truly grateful.

Interestingly, when I told my sister about it (expecting her to scoff at the idea), it turned out that her family doctor had advised her to use IBT years ago for her husband's acid reflux and it worked wonders. I'd never noticed her bed was raised!

Over 1 year later Nocturia, Cold Feet in Bed, back pain, snoring, sleep quality

 We did not do IBT  gradually, so the first week we didn't sleep so good. Only positive results with little or no  cost for this therapy sleep. Immediately our sleeping patterns changed, my  wife still snores but very light and usually stops on her own. For myself I rarely wake up at night to urinate  and when I wake in the morning there is no rush to go. The downside is that we need to bring our shims with us when we travel or we will not have a good nights sleep.  Living in northern Canada and nearly 60 years old  my feet are often cold prior to bedtime and couldn't sleep until my feet were warm, now my feet warm up very quickly.(without help)  Lower back pain was common for me and now is a thing of the past especially when I oversleep.  Andrew I hope your name goes down in history for reviving a method of sleep the Egyptians were using back in the day. God Bless!  Amazon sells a set of four blocks for under $25.

Numbness

I had a serious car accident nearly six years ago . I was left with scars ,these being my ankle,knee and face and was under the impression I would have permenant numbness. I stumbled across the inclined bed therapy website after linking off from One Radio Network and thought I would give it a go. My partner is a tree surgeon and the science of the therapy made so much sense. After raising our bed 6 inches for a couple of weeks and pretty much forgetting about it I noticed that I had normal sensation and the numbness had gone!! I find sleeping at a 6" angle very comfortable and natural,  it's difficult to sleep flat now. We recently went travelling in Nepal and sleeping on flat beds was not ideal. We introduced it to three different Nepali families and they we're open enough to try it out also with good effects, one being a young boy who also had a car accident, he now is spreading the information to others in Nepal. I will never go back to sleeping flat on my back. Thank you Andrew for your persistent research and battle to get the information out there,  you are a shining star *

Almost 6 Months of IBT

Sleep posture can have an amazing impact on quality of sleep and overall health. I've been doing Inclined Bed Therapy for almost 6 months. My energy and sense of well-being increased just days into my IBT experiment. I haven't felt like this in years. My occassional bouts of vertigo have disappeared. My hands and feet are warmer due to improved circulation. I don't wake-up as much during the night to go to the bathroom. More people need to learn about IBT and give it try. It's so simple, inexpensive and effective. Just raise the head of your bed 6 inches using blocks, books or bed risers. I never want to go back to sleeping flat again. Thank you Andrew for your work!

Many positive benefits but not enough sleep

                                                                                                                                Dear Andrew,                                                                                        16/10/16

At the beginning our sleep cycle was long and profound without waking and we felt rested and refreshed (during the first 15 days), then we started waking in the middle of the night, not being able to get back to sleep and feeling less rested in the morning (5 hours of sleep is not enough).

 

We have an Osteopath in the family, he is 43 years old and specialized in Fascia work, who tried the inclined bed himself for one month. Through his own perception he felt as if he had received a fascia treatment, each night, during 7 hours, while he was sleeping. He felt that this was not the best solution. He put his bed back to the flat position and after one week flat hasn’t felt so good, with such an energy level in 20 years. He thinks that alternating periods of inclined and flat bed could be more adapted for certain people, as was his case, and he is willing to try again at some future time.

 

We feel a lot of positive benefits from the Inclined Bed Therapy: much better and easier intestinal transit, no intestinal gas, soft and smooth stool, no more haemorrhoids, no more hot flushes or night sweats (menopause), pain from bumps, bruises or sprains disappears very quickly and blue areas from very old muscle and tissue sports injuries (25-35 years) are disappearing progressively, etc.

 

What do you think Andrew? What can we try to sleep longer and more profoundly?

 

Thanks

Prolapse & Bladder leaks

Dear Andrew,                                                                                                         31 August 2016

We read about Inclined Bed Therapy in an article, we tried it right away with 15 centimeters (6 inches) under our head. That was 7 days ago.

After 3 nights sleep my wife had urine leaks the 4th day while walking downhill and again on the 7th day walking on the flat. She has slight pain in the lower abdomen region.

She’s 58 years old, 32 years ago, at the birth of her last daughter she had a prolapse, she had recovery therapy and has been fine since.

Could this be a natural re-adaptation phenomena and should we persist and continue or

Should we put the head at 8 centimeters (4 inches) and work up progressively.

Yesterday we put the bed on a 8 cm incline to try, today again my wife had urine leaks while walking.

We are a concerned and would like to have an idea, Have you ever heard about this kind of thing? What do you suggest?

Thank you

B & B

 

ANDREW'S RESPONSE

 

My son's partners mum had a prolapse which she was told required corrective surgery. The good news is, it went back all by itself and has never presented a problem since. It takes quite a while for muscles to tone back up, which in turn hold the bladder in it's correct position.

It may be beneficial as you say, to raise the bed by 8cm and increase once the problem has subsided. What may be happening, and I suspect this is the case, is that oedema is being drawn back into the circulation and this is causing increased urination. If this is the case than it should resolve once oedema has been eliminated. Oedema can be stored all around the body and can be moved to the ankles initially while the pressure changes in the veins catch up with it. Hope this makes sense. kind regards Andrew

Emotions & Trauma's

I have just started with IBT this (3 nights) week, I have been sleeping heavily and unable to get out of bed. The other thing I have noticed is an emotional block/behaviour starting to lessen. I saw Greg's post about emotions and wanted to see has anyone noticed positive changes regarding past trauma's/fears?

 

The truth is simple!

Emotion

I just wanted to say I have only been doing this for a few days and already I feel an emotional feeling I have carried for many many years is leaving me.I feel so much lighter as a person.I had dreams of a healer helping me release an energy,although its not completethe awareness was given to me

Truly amazing,I speculate it must be shifting my energy and relieving past trauma

Any thoughts greatly appreciated

No More Mild Headaches

Until about two years ago, I neve had trouble with headaches, but then began waking up with very mild ones. I don't suffer from bruxism ,depression, or anything else that morning headaches seem associated with, so I figured some change due to aging (I'm 62) is taking place, and that maybe that change involves sensitivity to blood pressure. So I figured, just as you elevate you hand to decrease bleeding from a bad finger cut, I would elevate the head end of our bed a couple of inches. (The wife didn't even notice.) So I did, and presto--headaches gone!

Osteoarthritis, back and hip pains

I love Inclined Bed Therapy too. I started doing it January 1st and besides sleeping great each night I notice my dreams are more vivid and memorable which could also mean my brain is having an easier time restoring itself due to gravity and blood flow. Maybe that might help prevent Alzheimers in the long run.I used to wake up on a flat bed with shoulder, back and hip pains, but those have been steadily diminishing, and at this rate I think I just may regain my ability to run again. This experience suggests that it could help so many with back and osteo-arthritic problems, and certainly Dr. Mercola should do an article on it. We know too much sitting is bad and sleep is good, but sleeping flat and then waking up feeling pained and cramped in your joints is bad too, and I am happy I stumbled upon this better way.

The mattress industry just wants to sell you a new $2,000 mattress each year, but all you really need is two bed raisers, or books to raise your bed about five or six inches. I think the pull of gravity when sleeping on an incline also keeps the bowels from stagnating, and blood circulation flowing freely to every cell of the body. In short, Inclined Bed Therapy is probably the most important thing I have I have learned in probably my whole life, and I think it could help many people, and cure many problems that people have, and make their nights restful and restorative too, and I thank you for your post, and hope Dr. Mercola writes some articles on it in the future.

Multiple sclerosis, sleep apnea, nocturia

Thank you so much, jcbresnik, for mentioning Inclined Bed Therapy here.  I read several mentions of it in these comments, and Googled and researched it and was very quickly convinced of the importance of sleeping on a 5 degree incline with the head 6 inches higher than the feet.  

I am already experiencing huge improvements in my MS symptoms, and many different areas, after only a few nights sleeping inclined.  It is so nice to wake up clear-headed and without pain for the first time in many years, and to sleep through the night without having to get up 5-10 times to go to the bathroom.  I also don't miss waking up with a puffy face and stuffy nose anymore either.

Finding out about Inclined Bed Therapy, which was discovered and has been researched by Andrew K. Fletcher since 1994, has been a huge blessing and something I hope everyone will try.  We are not meant to sleep lying flat, and it is a very easy thing to correct which in turn creates extensive health benefits.

Thanks to everyone else who mentioned it here.   And just to add to the list of things it can be very helpful for - Snoring, Sleep Apnea, GERD, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson's, Spinal Cord Injury, Chronic Sinusitis and Bronchitis, Fibromyalgia, Muscle Pain,Varicose Veins etc...

When I was a teenager, my orthodontist diagnosed me as a "tongue-thruster" and told me that it was the reason my teeth were crowded - because normally when the tongue is kept in its proper position pressing against the roof of the mouth, it helps the palate expand properly.  As a tongue-thruster, my palate did not expand as much as it should have.  I am somewhat better at keeping my tongue where it's supposed to be, but I still have to think about it sometimes.

I used to have sleep apnea problems, especially while lying on my back.  As soon as I would start to fall asleep, my tongue would relax and block my airway apparently, and I would waken with a jolt.

A couple years ago, I read a comment on this forum recommending "inclined bed therapy" for MS and other problems like circulation issues and snoring.  Raising the head of my bed so that I sleep at an incline has improved many of my problems and I can now fall asleep on my back without sleep apnea issues.  I also sleep much better because another side effect of inclined bed therapy is that I don't have to get up to urinate ten or more times a night as I often had done before.  I really do believe sleeping inclined is the natural way to sleep.
