I had terrible stomach problems for a number

1:27:52.100,1:27:59.340
of years and I went to the Doctor but unfortunately
the tablets I was given had many side effects.

1:27:59.340,1:28:04.699
Course they do
Yes of course so one of them unfortunately

1:28:04.699,1:28:12.190
was breast enlargement and being a small lady
That can't be a bad thing he he he he

1:28:12.190,1:28:15.730
I didn't want to have a sort of over toppling
problem you know

1:28:15.730,1:28:24.449
Anyway so I came off those and well didn't
know what to do really and found Andrew's

1:28:24.449,1:28:26.390
inclined bed therapy and thought I would give
it a try.

1:28:26.390,1:28:35.850
My husband made the bed and I can safely say
within 2 or 3 days I had no more stomach problems.

1:28:35.850,1:28:44.020
Yeah so I am a great advocate of inclinedbedtherapy.com
not only that I find I am more refreshed in

1:28:44.020,1:28:51.239
the morning I sleep better and I get over
things quicker, you know illnesses and I am

1:28:51.239,1:28:55.949
less thirsty in the mornings and it's a great
mood lifter.

1:28:55.949,1:29:08.840
Brilliant yes.
Did you say your husband is trying it?

1:29:08.840,1:29:16.040
Is that David?
Yes it is

1:29:16.040,1:29:22.699
Hello David
Well yes we are getting around to it we sleep

1:29:22.699,1:29:30.570
in separate beds, Yeah I like to sleep separately,
I like to get a good nights sleep.

1:29:30.570,1:29:36.650
But yeah we are working on that David at some
point we are going to order the wood when

1:29:36.650,1:29:41.500
we have got some money order some wood at
the end of the year and my husband will make

1:29:41.500,1:29:45.400
an inclined bed for himself
Excellent

1:29:45.400,1:29:59.230
Thank you for chipping in, very interesting.
What were your stomach problems, acid reflux?

1:29:59.230,1:30:05.860
Yes that's right, I mean it is so debilitating
all day finding whatever you eat you just

1:30:05.860,1:30:13.940
feel you have got this terrible heart burn
and acid reflux and all related problems etc,

1:30:13.940,1:30:20.960
it didn't matter what I did, let's just say
that other things have helped too since then,

1:30:20.960,1:30:23.610
but the first thing that helped was the inclined
bed therapy

1:30:23.610,1:30:27.230
Right
Yeah from there I was able to take things

1:30:27.230,1:30:35.170
further, you know change diet eventually etc
but to start off not to have to take the tablet

1:30:35.170,1:30:42.080
and have a natural replacement for that you
know was really important to me. I don't like

1:30:42.080,1:30:48.010
taking tablets.
Was that zantac, I just hate having to take

1:30:48.010,1:30:52.699
those?
Oh yes exactly, I am not a person for taking

1:30:52.699,1:30:57.730
tablets so I really did resent taking anything
that could give me side effects so it was

1:30:57.730,1:31:03.060
lovely, really great to have that feeling
of ahh I have got some relief with the inclined

1:31:03.060,1:31:09.710
bed therapy and then from then on I could
make changes. So I have stayed inclined and

1:31:09.710,1:31:15.300
what I suppose I aught to say to people is
to try it and stay on it, don't come off it

1:31:15.300,1:31:20.449
when your symptoms have ceased. When you feel
that things have changed, I know a lot of

1:31:20.449,1:31:23.980
people have said oh I tried it and it was
really great, but then went back of course

1:31:23.980,1:31:28.100
to sleeping flat. Well I think that is a disaster.
Why would they do that

1:31:28.100,1:31:34.380
Well people I suppose sleeping in bed with
partners, perhaps there have been problems

1:31:34.380,1:31:37.199
there and.
I said there was a couch

1:31:37.199,1:31:44.850
Yeah well that's right but I can understand
but you know I suppose that's what I want

1:31:44.850,1:31:49.199
to say really is stay with it if you are going
to do inclined bed therapy don't give up after

1:31:49.199,1:31:51.190
a couple of months stay with it.
Yeah

1:31:51.190,1:31:57.210
Interesting that you were talking about people
who were on it that got away because I can't

1:31:57.210,1:32:02.730
get away, when I went away to my sisters place
in Vermont and I had to sleep flat I thought

1:32:02.730,1:32:08.010
that I was going to die in my sleep
Yeah, absolutely, you feel suffocated don't

1:32:08.010,1:32:12.989
you.
Yes yes

1:32:12.989,1:32:16.989
I also want to tell you something great that
happened because I live on a small island

1:32:16.989,1:32:25.969
and there is only 57 of us and 3 people here
also sleep inclined. One particular man they

1:32:25.969,1:32:31.040
are all elderly but one of them had a very
bad varicose vein in his leg and for years

1:32:31.040,1:32:37.590
he has had this varicose vein.
I would say it was in 3 or four days his varicose

1:32:37.590,1:32:41.410
vein disappeared after sleeping inclined.
Which is fantastic isn't it

1:32:41.410,1:32:42.910
It is fantastic
That's beautiful

1:32:42.910,1:32:49.219
Yeah and he stayed inclined. I say to him
are you still inclined? He says Oh yes. he

1:32:49.219,1:32:53.320
he he he
And another guy also had a very bad neck problem

1:32:53.320,1:32:56.989
and there has been no therapist that managed
to sort it out.

1:32:56.989,1:33:01.219
He was suffering with his neck problem so
I thought I would mention it to him and he

1:33:01.219,1:33:07.280
said Oh I will give it a try and again that
was within literally within a week. He said

1:33:07.280,1:33:14.050
I don't believe it, what Doctors couldn't
fix, sleeping so simply it's fixed. He said

1:33:14.050,1:33:18.449
I am telling everyone I'm telling everyone,
i'm driving people mad, I'm telling them ha

1:33:18.449,1:33:22.780
ha ha ha
He has become an inclined bed bore like the

1:33:22.780,1:33:26.280
rest of us.
Yeah absolutely that's right

1:33:26.280,1:33:31.600
It is amazing some of the immediate benefits
a lot of them take a lot longer but my girlfriend

1:33:31.600,1:33:36.360
remarked immediately that my snoring had almost
been eliminated.

1:33:36.360,1:33:42.120
Oh Yeah Yeah The snoring is great
I told my cousin about that and suddenly her

1:33:42.120,1:33:48.989
and her husband were sleeping in the same
bed again now. Because it eliminated his snoring.

1:33:48.989,1:33:53.580
And then I called Andrew and told him about
this and he said oh yeah inclined bed therapy

1:33:53.580,1:33:55.540
has saved many marriages.
Yes

1:33:55.540,1:33:58.820
ha ha ha ha
Fantastic isn't it

Click here for direct linkt to Video testimonial to Inclined Bed Therapy by Donald Fumerfelt

Transcript from Donald's Radio Testimony to IBT


1:07:34.450,1:07:38.540
So Donald how has inclined bed therapy done
for you?

1:07:38.540,1:07:47.359
Oh it's done really well Andrew and I am actually
lying on my inclined sofa watching my computer.

1:07:47.359,1:07:55.310
I won't give this incline up for anything.
So Steve you would ask people how they have

1:07:55.310,1:08:05.500
gotten on to this thing? Yeah I was trying
to do the exact opposite of what Andrew suggested,

1:08:05.500,1:08:13.500
I had been to the doctor a couple of years
ago and she told me that I was, or she thought

1:08:13.500,1:08:21.460
I was getting heart disease or atherosclerosis
and wanted to put me on the medications that

1:08:21.460,1:08:24.670
are going around for that. I didn't want any
part of that.

1:08:24.670,1:08:31.180
So I had remembered I had rented a home one
time where the bed was actually inclined at

1:08:31.180,1:08:36.339
the foot end by a couple of inches and I thought
I was getting some relief from that, so I

1:08:36.339,1:08:41.009
went on the internet to see if something like
that would help me. The unfortunate thing

1:08:41.009,1:08:45.210
about doing research on the internet is that
I can find anything to corroborate any theory

1:08:45.210,1:08:48.060
I can come up with
That's true

1:08:48.060,1:08:54.480
So I tried to discipline myself to find anything
that corroborates the opposite, so I bumped

1:08:54.480,1:09:00.020
into some of the stuff Andrew had written
up talking about how we are supposed to sleep

1:09:00.020,1:09:05.080
the exact opposite way and I thought oh what
is this and I started to read into it and

1:09:05.080,1:09:09.609
I was like oh my goodness this guy has really
gone into a lot of detail so I had read the

1:09:09.609,1:09:16.380
recommendations to raise the head end of my
bed starting out with a few inches, well I

1:09:16.380,1:09:21.069
couldn't wait, I think I inclined about 4
inches and before bed time I already had it

1:09:21.069,1:09:23.870
up to six or 7"
Ha ha ha

1:09:23.870,1:09:25.279
That's where you belong
Yeah

1:09:25.279,1:09:30.810
ha ha ha Thanks
Well the Doctor had actually told me earlier

1:09:30.810,1:09:37.870
that day that she wasn't getting any pulse
in my right foot and I had an eye stoke about

1:09:37.870,1:09:44.150
six months earlier and she said oh my god,
your arteries are hardening and this is why

1:09:44.150,1:09:51.650
she wanted to put me on the statins as well.
That night I could feel the blood flow tunnelling

1:09:51.650,1:09:55.180
through whatever blockages i was experiencing
in my right foot.

1:09:55.180,1:10:02.130
Then my eyesight started to get better during
the time I had actually managed to quit smoking

1:10:02.130,1:10:06.130
for a little bit
I haven't managed to conquer that one yet.

1:10:06.130,1:10:13.210
But boy I just felt so much better, probably
the thing that most people could identify

1:10:13.210,1:10:19.780
with in my story are the unexpected benefits
as so many of us have had other benefits I

1:10:19.780,1:10:25.590
had a garden where I worked that had about
700 petunia plants and I would squat every

1:10:25.590,1:10:29.770
year to plant these in and I wouldn't get
done with the planting before I was having

1:10:29.770,1:10:34.840
terrible lower back pains and sometimes I
would have to take a full minute just to stand

1:10:34.840,1:10:42.770
up straight.
That winter, I started sleeping inclined with

1:10:42.770,1:10:50.550
the bed head end up six inches and the feet
down. The following spring I planted 1300

1:10:50.550,1:10:58.330
petunia plants not one episode of back pain
at all. Ha ha

1:10:58.330,1:11:08.980
Its incredible
My mother who is now 81 this was a couple

1:11:08.980,1:11:14.510
of years ago that I started this and I was
talking to her about it and oh I think anybody

1:11:14.510,1:11:20.110
who has tried to become an inclined bed therapy
evangelist has run into this I mean, people

1:11:20.110,1:11:24.420
think I am a cook it's almost like I got a
reputation

1:11:24.420,1:11:29.699
Yeah
Like you know so anyway that's ok because

1:11:29.699,1:11:34.610
the couple of people that have tried it and
benefited makes it all worth while and hearing

1:11:34.610,1:11:44.020
from people on this show also is really great
and I told my mother about this and so she

1:11:44.020,1:11:51.280
tried it and then as always all the benefits
are always preceded by a a little a little

1:11:51.280,1:11:55.920
discomfort like going to the gym and working
out. And then all of a sudden there's a benefit.

1:11:55.920,1:12:01.040
My mother was all set to put it back down
she was having pain in her back from this.

1:12:01.040,1:12:07.219
After about 6 days and on the 7th day she
came out of the shower in the morning sat

1:12:07.219,1:12:11.199
down to clip her toe nails and said oh my
goodness I was able to lift my left foot up

1:12:11.199,1:12:14.320
onto my right knee without having to use my
hands.

1:12:14.320,1:12:15.210
Ha ha ha
Wow

1:12:15.210,1:12:19.750
I haven't been able to do that in five years.
he he he

1:12:19.750,1:12:27.350
Now she is telling me that her balance is
increasing tremendously so now I am starting

1:12:27.350,1:12:33.710
to do my own offshoot quasi enthusiast research
which I am looking up, you know how blood

1:12:33.710,1:12:37.660
circulation affects the vestibular and there
is so many directions we can go in. Anyway,

1:12:37.660,1:12:46.310
I tend to be long winded and that's my story.,
Brilliant, thank you very much Donald

1:12:46.310,1:12:50.780
Sure
We didn't hear where does Donald live?

1:12:50.780,1:12:56.489
Oh I'm in New Haven Connecticut Terri.
Yeah another Yankee here

1:12:56.489,1:13:09.110
I'm in Ohio
Your in among friends, we have
a lot of American listeners and American hosts

1:13:09.110,1:13:16.340
and some are especially first nations people
so yeah way we look at Awake is that all races

1:13:16.340,1:13:21.530
cultures and religions we have all got to
come together and share this kinda knowledge

1:13:21.530,1:13:27.260
because certainly the powers that be we call
them certainly don't want us to be healthy

1:13:27.260,1:13:34.080
it would appear.
The government doesn't want us healthy.

1:13:34.080,1:13:42.370
Yeah, what it is, is a sickness industry,
if we are all well, they are out of business.

1:13:42.370,1:13:45.670
That's right
Did you say how long you had been doing the

1:13:45.670,1:13:50.870
therapy Donald?
Let's see I, when did I first contact you

1:13:50.870,1:13:54.860
Andrew about 2 years ago?
Yeah it's been about 2 years.

1:13:54.860,1:14:00.330
As a matter of fact yeah I only discovered
it recently Terri I couldn't believe that

1:14:00.330,1:14:06.440
when I discovered it about two and a half
years ago and Andrew had been working on it

1:14:06.440,1:14:12.540
since like the 1990's It's like oh my god
where have I been?

1:14:12.540,1:14:14.540
Yeah so anyway it's been about 2 and a half
years.

1:14:14.540,1:14:25.170
I have been doing this since 1998 Don
Well it certainly seems that there is an initial

1:14:25.170,1:14:32.180
effects that can be quite a positive, obviously
over the long term you know you have got to

1:14:32.180,1:14:35.360
be patient with it I think.
Yes

1:14:35.360,1:14:41.310
The first two weeks can be problematic for
some people as Donald said it feels like you

1:14:41.310,1:14:47.030
have been working out in the gymnasium, your
muscles are aching, you can get a stiff neck,

1:14:47.030,1:14:56.199
I remember getting a stiff neck =, but I also
remember one of the days we took the lads

1:14:56.199,1:15:03.090
down to the beach and the lads had skate boards
and I had a bull terrier pulling them up and

1:15:03.090,1:15:12.770
down the beach and I was running in front
shouting the dog and the dog was a big powerful

1:15:12.770,1:15:18.230
dog pulling the lads at tremendous speed and
the dog was falling on the floor completely

1:15:18.230,1:15:22.460
done in and when I got back I said oh the
poor dog.

1:15:22.460,1:15:28.500
I remember Jude saying how come you are not
out of breath? Why have you done all of this

1:15:28.500,1:15:32.840
and you are not out of breath?
And another thing that we noticed as that

1:15:32.840,1:15:37.880
if we walked up the hill we would normally
ache and with bags filled with shopping we

1:15:37.880,1:15:44.070
would pull over and stop, but now we were
able to carry on without stopping so you know

1:15:44.070,1:15:49.070
that the benefits are quite remarkable.
Yeah

0:32:08.340,0:32:20.860
I met Andrew around 1993 I think
I think it was a bout 1995 96

0:32:20.860,0:32:23.590
95 96 right Time flies
It does

0:32:23.590,0:32:31.420
So I am assuming that you have tried the inclined
bed therapy David?

0:32:31.420,0:32:40.680
Yes well when I first met Andrew he mentioned
about the inclined bed and all of his research

0:32:40.680,0:32:51.010
with trees and things like that and the circulation
of nature and I decided to must have been

0:32:51.010,0:33:00.620
95 96 to buy an inclined bed off him and within
a few months he was so generous him and his

0:33:00.620,0:33:09.970
wife drove 350 miles north up to where I lived
and delivered the bed.

0:33:09.970,0:33:18.610
I was very grateful at the time.
I still am because I have slept on that bed

0:33:18.610,0:33:30.240
ever since and it took a while of perseverance
to adjust myself to it and it certainly paid

0:33:30.240,0:33:37.480
off.
Could I ask what benefits you have attained

0:33:37.480,0:33:46.050
from it?
Well prior to meeting Andrew I had been an

0:33:46.050,0:33:54.340
instrument engineer working off shore almost
24 hours 7 days a week

0:33:54.340,0:34:04.170
In fact it was the disaster of Piper Alpha
in 1989 that decided me to chuck my construction

0:34:04.170,0:34:12.760
boots in, but at the time I was suffering
of all the following medical conditions.

0:34:12.760,0:34:20.510
Keratitis, which is an irritation of the eye
which doctors did not know how to cure it.

0:34:20.510,0:34:26.590
Tinnitus which they couldn't treat at the
time. Deafness because I had been working

0:34:26.590,0:34:39.659
off shore in a very noisy environment and
I also had a prolapsed disc for about maybe

0:34:39.659,0:34:48.610
20 years before I met Andrew.
That produced sciatica and by the time I met

0:34:48.610,0:34:59.600
Andrew I had arthritis of the spine and also
my fingers I couldn't bear to pick anything

0:34:59.600,0:35:16.240
up. In fact I used to play the piano and I
couldn't bear to touch the notes with my fingers.

0:35:16.240,0:35:25.640
Since then, having persevered with the inclined
bed six inches which Andrew made, all of those

0:35:25.640,0:35:32.450
conditions have virtually gone.
To be quite truthful, I have never needed

0:35:32.450,0:35:42.940
to see any doctors or medical physicians since
2001 and since that day I have never taken

0:35:42.940,0:35:52.300
any medical prescriptions or anything like
that whatsoever. It has been a gradual process

0:35:52.300,0:36:01.200
within my body. You can't have an agenda when
you start laying on an inclined bed, you are

0:36:01.200,0:36:07.770
just wasting your own time having an agenda,
thinking that yes I am going to get better

0:36:07.770,0:36:16.340
tomorrow or the next week or cure all ills
and things like that.

0:36:16.340,0:36:32.060
You have got to maintain a good life and sleep
on this inclined bed. And if you can persevere

0:36:32.060,0:36:37.190
it's going to be well worth it.
Sure sure

0:36:37.190,0:36:45.410
And what do you think that healed David Andrew?
What would be your assumption of it?

0:36:45.410,0:36:54.980
Well, David is one case of many and over 20
years I have heard many many cases like David's.

0:36:54.980,0:37:01.440
It seems to identify that the flat bed was
actually the cause of many of the problems,

0:37:01.440,0:37:07.350
possibly as he mentioned working on the rigs
being very damp as we discussed early a very

0:37:07.350,0:37:16.110
damp climate will have a double whammy affect,
in fact many of the people that work in the

0:37:16.110,0:37:22.970
fishing an the boats and trawlers you see
them walking around in the harbour areas and

0:37:22.970,0:37:32.240
they are crippled up with severe problems
with the skeletal frame, arthritis, doubled

0:37:32.240,0:37:42.260
over and not a great job like David's job.
So if we have identified that the flat bed

0:37:42.260,0:37:47.369
could have been the cause and if we take the
flat bed out of the equation we should all

0:37:47.369,0:37:50.700
get better.
I am not saying it is a cure all for everyone

0:37:50.700,0:38:01.860
but I have had success with spinal cord injury,
Parkinson's multiple sclerosis, even a problem

0:38:01.860,0:38:08.369
with human fertility believe it or not.
Influenza, chicken pox, so it boosts the immune

0:38:08.369,0:38:14.170
system as well. We tend not to get as ill
as we did when we slept on a flat bed, you

0:38:14.170,0:38:18.869
know if you get Man-flu the man usually lays
down flat and gets very ill

0:38:18.869,0:38:23.020
Ha ha ha
The wife doesn't get man-flu because she is

0:38:23.020,0:38:28.840
too busy running around looking after the
husband, so they are always upright and they

0:38:28.840,0:38:32.930
tend not to get as ill as the men and in fact
if we go back to the sweating sickness it

0:38:32.930,0:38:36.760
was probably the men that died more-so than
the women.

0:38:36.760,0:38:42.540
Ha ha ha
Talking about man flu and colds, I can't remember

0:38:42.540,0:38:49.160
how many years it has been since I had such
an event

0:38:49.160,0:38:54.230
Yes
Well David thank you very much for chipping

0:38:54.230,0:38:55.770
in
Thank you

0:38:55.770,0:39:04.980
You are more than welcome my friend
For me it tends to recycle your body energies

0:39:04.980,0:39:12.110
down to your feet more efficiently no matter
what salts, no matter what chemicals you have

0:39:12.110,0:39:18.180
got in your body everything has to be emitted
from your body and from your feet eventually

0:39:18.180,0:39:23.640
and your toes
It seems to do what I have just explained

0:39:23.640,0:39:37.330
Well I suppose that
your circulation is your healing energy and
that if it is able to get to everything then

0:39:37.330,0:39:42.310
it's obviously going to heal.
Well without circulation we are dead.

0:39:42.310,0:39:46.190
Yeah yeah yeah
Fascinating fascinating

0:39:46.190,0:39:53.580
I will play devils advocate just for one second
David. Is there anything that you reckon may

0:39:53.580,0:39:58.310
have helped your healing process other than
the inclined bed therapy?

0:39:58.310,0:40:07.060
Well I have never drunk alcohol for about
four or five years now and never smoked. Well

0:40:07.060,0:40:19.200
put it this way I smoked when I was about
30 for about 4 years and then I knocked it

0:40:19.200,0:40:24.340
off.
That's erm 45 years ago ha ha

0:40:24.340,0:40:30.180
So effectively all you have done is pretty
much maintained a healthy diet and inclined

0:40:30.180,0:40:35.609
bed therapy and that has been it?
In fact when I stopped working offshore I

0:40:35.609,0:40:44.950
was over 15 stone in weight and because of
all the good food that they supply to you

0:40:44.950,0:40:58.920
in the meals off shore. That 15 stones is
now slimmed down to about 11 and a half stones

0:40:58.920,0:41:05.890
in the last 20 odd years.
And I have just maintained that weight and

0:41:05.890,0:41:17.990
I enjoy my eating so it must be the bed.

Transcript from Terri Harison's Testimonial 


Some subjects are not always the most interesting
but certainly for me this is an interesting

0:42:37.190,0:42:42.500
subject it is something that is very very
cheap and it's not going to cost you a great

0:42:42.500,0:42:48.750
deal of money and it's something as Andrew
said is repeatable and you know I think it's

0:42:48.750,0:42:55.290
well worth having a go to be honest.
So Andrew welcome back again and

0:42:55.290,0:43:00.830
Thank you Steven
And Terri as joined us from the good old US

0:43:00.830,0:43:07.080
of A which will please a lot of our listeners.
Hello everyone

0:43:07.080,0:43:17.880
So Terri would you like to give us a little
introduction to your inclined bed therapy?

0:43:17.880,0:43:26.230
I found the website talked about the inclined
bed therapy and I was new to multiple sclerosis

0:43:26.230,0:43:34.760
and I didn't take any medication yet for the
multiple sclerosis and I found this information

0:43:34.760,0:43:42.700
and I thought huh you want somebody to try
something new. I will be happy to try that.

0:43:42.700,0:43:48.220
Didn't involve any needles or pain or medication
and didn't cost me anything, yeah I was willing

0:43:48.220,0:43:56.790
to give it a try and I had pain in my left
thigh all of the time and I thought well Betty

0:43:56.790,0:44:02.119
Iams a nice woman though I have never met
her, she suggested this therapy and said it

0:44:02.119,0:44:08.920
worked for her so I would give it a try.
And I used some books underneath the frame

0:44:08.920,0:44:13.600
of my bed and I would just give it a try,
he said six inches higher than your feet,

0:44:13.600,0:44:19.450
Ok I can do maths, I can measure and so I
put the books under my bed and slept that

0:44:19.450,0:44:24.660
way one night and though huh the pain's gone
and my husband said I hate it so I said alight

0:44:24.660,0:44:28.350
I will take the books out again.
The pain came back.

0:44:28.350,0:44:32.970
I said the couch is out there I am sleeping
with the bed up and we have done it ever since.

0:44:32.970,0:44:38.840
And that was back in 1998
So I have been sleeping that way ever since

0:44:38.840,0:44:43.140
and my multiple sclerosis does not give me
any trouble, I have never taken any drugs

0:44:43.140,0:44:50.680
or anything injectable or anything cancer
causing. I never take any drugs just the inclined

0:44:50.680,0:44:58.940
bed has served me well since 1998.
That's a good record. I believe you had an

0:44:58.940,0:45:06.270
interesting conversation with your neurologist?
Yes, The neurologist recently told me that

0:45:06.270,0:45:12.800
you don't really need to come back to see
me again your better. I have never seen anyone

0:45:12.800,0:45:18.770
get better, it is not a disease that is supposed
to get better he said don't bother to come

0:45:18.770,0:45:22.400
back ha ha
ha ha ha ha Brilliant

0:45:22.400,0:45:26.390
I have never been happier to fire a doctor
in my life.

0:45:26.390,0:45:30.240
Brilliant brilliant
One thing I noticed with David and yourself

0:45:30.240,0:45:35.590
that has been sort of late 90's that you have
been doing inclined bed therapy so that's

0:45:35.590,0:45:39.700
quite some time
Hmm hmm

0:45:39.700,0:45:47.980
Did it take some time? How long did it take
for you to get a response or reaction with

0:45:47.980,0:45:55.670
it any idea?
I had mine immediately because I had the pain

0:45:55.670,0:46:02.800
and then it was gone and that is how multiple
sclerosis works it comes and goes but I had

0:46:02.800,0:46:11.280
instant relief from the pain in my leg and
I had no reason to think that this isn't working.

0:46:11.280,0:46:17.320
Brilliant Yeah
Since then I have had amalgams removed from

0:46:17.320,0:46:22.869
my teeth and my doctor not my neurologist
this is a different doctor who said I think

0:46:22.869,0:46:28.520
you have had mercury poisoning as well as
your multiple sclerosis so with the amalgams

0:46:28.520,0:46:36.210
removed from my teeth I think I have eliminated
mercury poisoning from my system. I still

0:46:36.210,0:46:40.070
have had no problems with multiple sclerosis
and I have tried sleeping flat on a vacation

0:46:40.070,0:46:46.010
when I couldn't sleep inclined and I hated
it, my husband said he hated it too and even

0:46:46.010,0:46:51.310
though he on one hand hates sliding down on
the bed on the other hand he can't sleep flat

0:46:51.310,0:46:52.910
now. ha ha
ha ha

0:46:52.910,0:46:57.040
He is a fireman so occasionally he has to
go to the fire-station to sleep and he don't

0:46:57.040,0:47:02.060
sleep good there, it's too much bother to
lift the bed up there.

0:47:02.060,0:47:10.890
Although we just use PVC pipe and put it under
the leg of the bed and that's how we raise

0:47:10.890,0:47:13.190
our bed, the book thing didn't really work
to well.

0:47:13.190,0:47:16.240
Yeah that's a great idea.
Yeah

0:47:16.240,0:47:23.970
Depending on where we go my family have bricks
for me to use and that works for me if I at

0:47:23.970,0:47:30.480
their house I have bricks. Whatever, I have
gone on a mission trip to Trinidad and we

0:47:30.480,0:47:36.240
took pvc pipe on the trip to Trinidad and
I raised the bed there and had some rocks

0:47:36.240,0:47:40.770
to help put underneath it but the pvc pipe
seems to work really well.

0:47:40.770,0:47:45.869
Brilliant brilliant
It's easy to cut and you can make it whatever

0:47:45.869,0:47:53.780
length you want.
Yes that sounds a very simplistic way yeas

0:47:53.780,0:48:01.570
I am all about simple things and blood .
We have a question in the chat which refers

0:48:01.570,0:48:09.210
to the bed as well which clearly enjoyed you
mentioning about sliding down the bed and

0:48:09.210,0:48:15.430
said if the bed is tilted that much how does
one stay on it without sliding to the end?

0:48:15.430,0:48:24.820
My bed is tilted 4 inches and I have had constantly
to stop myself from going to the bottom of

0:48:24.820,0:48:29.090
the bed.
What you can do there is to wrap an old duvet

0:48:29.090,0:48:35.340
if you have a spare duvet or a blanket, wrap
it tightly around the mattress and then put

0:48:35.340,0:48:42.040
your top sheet on and that extra friction
that you get from the duvet or the blanket

0:48:42.040,0:48:48.210
prevents the slipping.
Very smart thinking that

0:48:48.210,0:48:55.480
Well these are some of the tips that many
people who have been helped have handed over.

Click to hear Terri talking about other people she has helped
 

0:52:11.670,0:52:18.960
My Granddaughter is three now, but since she
has been born she has had trouble with reflux,

0:52:18.960,0:52:23.480
acid reflux and the babies sleep is not fine
because all she was doing is crying.

0:52:23.480,0:52:28.220
And my Daughter is the one that did Andrew's
study and we tried to do the circulation thing

0:52:28.220,0:52:33.990
in the science fair thing and so my daughter
understands his theory and she was quick to

0:52:33.990,0:52:40.130
put a block or something under the crib to
make sure that she is inclined and that helped

0:52:40.130,0:52:43.500
her acid reflux tremendously.
Brilliant

0:52:43.500,0:52:47.500
And my husband also suffers from that acid
reflux disorder and we put our bed up, he

0:52:47.500,0:52:53.820
doesn't have that problem any more.
It is interesting, my great grandmother slept

0:52:53.820,0:52:59.440
with her bed inclined and I am guessing that
she had an acid problem and that it helped

0:52:59.440,0:53:09.230
her stomach. I was four years old I am 51
now. She was sleeping with her bed inclined

0:53:09.230,0:53:13.020
and we didn't know anything about Andrew's
study then so it must have been something

0:53:13.020,0:53:17.570
that people do.
Yes

0:53:17.570,0:53:20.540
Somewhere along the line, somebody had the
idea that we should sleep with the head of

0:53:20.540,0:53:25.849
our bed up so that out tummy's don't hurt.
Yes

Borderline Secondary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis Report on using Inclined Bed Therapy over 4 years

Borderline Secondary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis Report on using Inclined Bed Therapy over 4 years

Male diagnosed late 30's with Multiple sclerosis, although ms was suspected earlier as he had been exhibiting symptoms since late teens. His MS was progressing rapidly when he was finally diagnosed as "borderline Secondary Progressive" his future looked grim as he quickly became too disabled to work. Four years ago, after reading your theory about Inclined Bed Therapy, we raised the head of his bed 5 degrees. He had very little trouble adjusting to sleeping on this gentle slope. Within 48 hours he was able to sleep for longer periods of time because he was no longer being woken by the fruitless urge to urinate. Both his ability to urinate when necessary and control his bowels had become a major issue before his bed was inclined. After sleeping on an incline for a week, both urination and bowel issues had backed off considerably and currently, four years later, it's only an occasional problem.

His first MRI after sleeping on an incline for 7 months showed no new lesions, no increase in existing lesion size and a small increase in the loss of grey matter. The increase of his MS symptoms had begun to slow down. He has had 2 subsequent MRI's in the past three plus years all with the same results, no new lesions or increase in existing lesion's size and further small loss of grey matter. His MS is slowly progressing though and unfortunately he is slowly losing sexual function and is displaying more foot drop and stiffness in gate.

He'd been using Rebif until 10 months ago when his liver enzyme level rose. His last MRI was done six months after stopping Rebif. However we saw no discernible slow down in the progression of the disease until we inclined the head end of his bed by 7 inches. 

His neuropathic pain is less severe now than since he first started displaying MS symptoms. He only uses ibuprofen sparingly now. If his medications played a role in his erectile dysfunction, their side effects are now diminishing - so along with his increasingly healthy vascular system giving better blood flow, hopefully he may still re-gain that function. 

In answer to your question about neuropathic pain lessening on an Inclined Bed; although his pain is currently less there are other factors such as the drug and diet which could influence his pain levels. His pain was a symptom before he began Rebif, increased while taking Rebif and while he was using an IB. It didn't decrease until after Rebif was stopped.

 Since stopping the Interferon, detoxing his liver, eating a vascular healthy diet as well as continuing to sleep on the 5 degree incline, he uses minimal pain control, feels considerably better, his bad days are fewer and of less severity.  Two months ago he began taking a Curcumin supplement and now has a warm left hand with some sensation of feeling in his finger tips and visible veins in his chest, arms, and hands.

 Thank you so much for giving us the first concrete help in our battle with MS. We will forever be grateful for your theory and tenacity in getting out the message to the MS community.

Update 26th June 2015:

Our son is doing much the same as before although his latest MRI showed a small increase in a frontal lobe lesion. We expected some activity because his routine and life was turned upside down last summer when we moved to a small city.   Our son still sleeps at a 5% incline and is still free from the bladder and bowel problems that were such a daily struggle. He’s’ still able to walk albeit with a cane and for only 1/2 a block but he’s really happy to have mobility especially since they expected him to be in a chair long before now. Another surprise has been the visual emergence of veins in his left hand accompanied by a slight lessening of iciness; although his dexterity is about the same.
 
Thanks again for your campaign to promote the inclined bed theory. We believe our focus on vascular health beginning with an inclined bed, diet, exercise and stress reduction has slowed this runaway MS train down to a crawl.

IBT helps brain drainage in multiple sclerosis

 After 33 years of relapsing remitting MS, my wife was close to needing a wheel chair. She had nearly all the horrendous MS symptoms and they were getting worse quickly. Her Neuro felt she was becoming Progressive. Her world continually spun with no balance, falling frequently. Her hands and feet were numb. She had multiple attacks on her eyes with torn retinas and double vision. Super sensitive to temperature, we had to get air conditioning to maintain a steady temperature in the house. She had skin pain that no drugs would relieve. she had Cognitive dysfunction (brain fog) which was only made worse with many drugs. continual leg spasms were not controlled completely with Baclofen. she could not get enough sleep and was falling asleep while eating. Her mouth would not work and she forgot what she was saying half way through a sentence. By this time, I took early retirement to be her care giver. 

  Somewhere I read about inclining the bed to help with dizziness. Evelyn would get panic attacks the minute she laid down, and her world spun even more. She couldn't fall asleep because of this and the leg spasms. I lifted the bed 5.5 inches and she had an immediate improvement. The panic and dizziness didn't happen. She was able to sleep better, but her bad scoliosis back and hip pain kept her from getting good quality sleep. Having her head elevated certainly helped, but we needed to address the MS.

   We saw the W5 show in late 2010 in which Dr Zamboni described CCSVI (blocked veins in the neck and the azygos vein behind the heart). I was intrigued and followed the Internet as more and more clinics began doing angioplasty to open those veins and allow good blood flow and drainage of the brain. We had scans done and discovered Evelyn had those blockages. We went to Cabo, Mexico to get the angioplasty treatment. She had 4 blockages opened up. They provided mini videos of before and after each expansion of the veins. You could see the improved flow Instantly. Her cold legs and feet warmed up immediately. The dizziness left, her balance returned,  numbness left, the cog fog was reduced, her energy improved. She could stand without her cane. As we left the clinic, she began to sweat ... Something she had not dome for eleven years! All this within days of treatment. A few months later some numbness returned to her fingers. She had re stenosis a bit, so we returned to repeat the angioplasty. It worked again. Over the following 3 months we slowly weaned Ev from the many drugs she was on. Only after that could we be sure the symptoms were gone. As part of an MS study at UBC in Vancouver for 33 years, Ev saw her Neurologist annually for MRI's and testing the progression. Her Nero had been pessimistic, but was amazed at the changes. it's been 5 years now and all those symptoms have not returned. Her worst problem is an extreme scoliosis that causes back, hip, and leg pains. But we have our lives back and are so grateful! Ev is now back to her alert, smart, and charming self again. 

   We continue to have our bed inclined as Ev still gets light-headed when changing position from lying down or getting up. it happens less with our bed inclined. She takes BP drugs and I believe her flow is still a bit reduced through those veins, causing that light headed feeling.

   We hope our story helps others. We appreciate the efforts of those maintaining sites like this one. Sharing our experiences is educational and may change the lives of many.

Always on an Incline Oedema (fluid retention) Hemorrhoids

A couple of years ago I started having some Fluid issues, Swelling in my Foot. I Was Desperate for relief. I was Drinking Tumeric and Doing liver cleanses to relive the problem, however that was not working. I started searching for more healing possibilities. I literately Stumbled upon Inclined Bed Therapy By Accident. I immediately Inclined my bed. I have never slept flat again. I have had other side effects from the inclined bed therapy That I did not expect. I Had suffered from hemorrhoids for years and No longer have that problem any more. I used to Live with terrible hemorrhoid pain. Since I Started Inclined therapy I have had perhaps 2 or 3 Flare ups. in over 2 years! My Swelling Went down in my Foot, Hemorrhoids are not a problem any more. Personally, I will never Sleep flat again, And I always Suggest IBT To All people, Both Healthy and Not.

Multiple sclerosis 19 years IBT

I was one of the first volunteers to try IBT 19 years ago! Andrew was interested to see if sleeping at an angle could improve my MS symptoms. I was pleased to find that walking became easier, my blood circulation improved so that my feet were not too hot at nig ht time, the dexterity in my hands improved too.  I also found that my  bladder control was better, I only had to go to the bathroom once in the night. When I suffered from optic neuritis in my right eye my optician was surprised at how quickly my eyesight recovered. He contacted Andrew to discuss IBT.

Recently we have raised our bed to 8 inches to help my husband to control his acid reflux condition.  I have to admit I do slide down the bed more now.

I have noticed that my friends with MS tend to have swollen ankles and legs which is something that I have never suffered from.  I think I have IBT to thank for that.  After having had MS for 38 years I am still mobile, although I do need to push a walking aid for balance.  So I don't think I will go back to sleeping flat.

So simple yet so effetive, Congestion, Vivid dreaming, Waking refreshed,

Incline Bed Therapy has been such a positive influence on my health. I have been incline for nearly a year now.  Some of the benefits that I have observed are as follows…

• Deeper sleep and vivid dreams (I dream almost every night now)
• I now wake up feeling well rested instead of groggy.
• I no longer wake up feeling congested (I use to have a chronic blocked nose in the morning)
• I am slightly taller! By about half a cm. This could be from the spine stretching out during the night…. I’m nearly 30 and stopped growing a long time ago.
• Improved posture (Kundalini yoga and switching to a standing desk has also helped with this)

Some other things that have also contributed to a better sleep have been changing from a springed mattress to a futon mattress and also not eating after 8pm. It is my understanding that the body can either do one of two things while sleeping… heal or digest food. So if you eat late you’re inhibiting the healing process at night.

I will never… ever go back to sleeping flat. I actually now avoid any occasion where I can’t sleep in my own bed because I love it so much! If I go camping, I’ll also make sure that I find a slight incline to lay my sway down. It has been such a beautifully simple change but with so many health benefits.

Sharon Austin (Severely Fractured Spine)

“It was a lovely sunny blessed morning on the barge , until I had a freak accident and broke my back while travelling under a low bridge. 3 fire engines, 1 ambulance & a couple of army folk later and I'm tucked up drugged up & awaiting an opp in the morning. I totally believe in the power of prayer and intention so pls send love & healing to me & my family . Thank you Kit Kath, Cheryl & Jaz for looking after me today and to the lady that called the ambulance and everyone iv seen since , iv been made a right fuss of !

looking for prayers.”

Just short of 7 months ago I wrote this message on Facebook roughly 7 hrs after my accident, here I am today sitting at my desk reading through the digital version of my journey (Facebook posts and messages). Earlier today I had an appointment with the Personal Trainer who has been overseeing my 13 week exercise program that I was referred to by my physio, both my physio and the personal trainer are happy to let me go and get on with the rest of my recovery unsupervised – quite an achievement after just short of 7 months.

So, I was at the gym 13 weeks ago , thats just 31/2 months after the accident! Granted I couldn't do a lot and I have had to build myself up very slowly but I was fit and well enough, and determined enough to get my fitness and mobility back. Since that time I have been attending the gym once a week to do a small amount or cardio and weight work, I have also been doing hydrotherapy and an exercise program in the water and over the past few weeks I have been to yoga, pilates and aqua aerobics, as well as some swimming ( no more than 4 lengths) and my favourite achievement from the past week is jogging!!! Iv actually jogged – only about 20 steps but until now I havent been able to do the action needed to jog plus there i

s a lot of discomfort in my lower back as it now has 2 metal rods in there.

Why am I sharing this with you? Because along with healing and prayers that I know have helped me recover – and walk again- I didnt mention that my surgeon told me they dont usually see people with my injuries that can walk again ( he told me this a few months ago, not at the time of the operation) As a result of the accident and the injury to my spine a friend connected me with Andrew Fletcher and Inclined Bed Therapy, I watched this interview “Science of Healing Sleep” https://www.youtube.com/watch?t=51&v=86ysFt9DCQQ and Inclined the bed ASAP to aid my recovery, 11 days after leaving hospital I was sleeping on an incline and will continue to do so. I havent broken my back before or experienced anything similar so I have no personal comparisons as to how my recovery could have been but I know IBT has helped and sped up my rehabilitation, Doctors, Surgeons, Physios and personal trainers are all well pleased with my recovery, some more openly amazed than others, I was informed by one professional it wouldnt be unusual for me to be using aids to walk, or even to be still afraid to get up and walk. So it is for this reason I share my experience, IBT can help with many many ailments series and irritating including snoring or the inconvenience of having to get up in the night to use the toilet- IBT could save a marriage, please look at the info Andrew has put together for us and share with your family, friends and neighbours. This has cost me the time to research – which Andrew has collated and the cost of a couple of breeze blocks to raise the bed, can you afford not to help your body help you?!

Better Sleep, Better Bladder Control

I've inclined my bed by 6 inches (150mm) and can't believe what a difference its made to my sleeping. I used to awake a minimum of 3 times a night to visit the loo, but no more. Until I started this 5 days ago I couldn't remember the last time I slept for more than 2 hours, but now I sleep for 6 hours straight! Thank you!

Multiple Sclerosis, fatigue, eyesight, parasthesias, aches and pains

Dear Andrew I first tried IBT last December after listening to you on a Youtube interview with Clive de Carle. Over the last five months my fatigue, , heat tolerance, eyesight, parasthesias and general aches and pains have improved noticeably. I no longer need an afternoon sleep to get me through the day. After 25 years of MS symptoms I'm still working, jogging and going to the gym. My regime is natural incorporating a vegan diet and supplements. I believe IBT has added further improvements. Many thanks for all your advice, explanation and giving me the opportunity to meet you. Regards, Steve Williams.

Slipped Disk, Arthritis, Sciatica, Oedema, Tinnitus, Varicose Veins.

Having left the offshore Oil / Gas industry in 1992 after 34 years as an Instrument Design Engineer, my medical problems at age 52 years were so disabling that I had to use a walking stick most times for four years due to the absolute weakness on the left side of my body - it felt as if there was nothing there. Consequently without my friendly stick I became very unbalanced -falling from my ankle which did not feel there at that moment. Conversely the right side of my body began to take the weight off my left side. This had a big muscular reaction. I developed large varicose veins down my right lower leg, I lost mobility in my right shoulder, thigh and hip. My right arm I could not lift above my shoulder it was so painful.

When the above was occurring around 1992 I was attending my doctor's surgery every week and was diagnosed with the following...

1.   Slipped Lumbar disc

2.   Keratitus (eye infection - medical - unknown cure)

3.   Tinnitus (ringing in both ears)

4.   Sciatica - left leg. severe paralysing pains throughout my body. Most times I walked or stumbled doubled up.

5.   Arthritis of the spine and fingers (afraid of touching anything)

6.   Varicose veins in right lower leg.

7.   Right leg thick fluid swelling below the knee, left leg was similar but not as pronounced.

During these months and years I was daily absorbing a very large amount of medical prescribed tablets from my doctor. Side effects were insomnia and stomach and leg cramps during the night.

Whilst studying in Devon in 1994 I met Andrew Fletcher and his wife and explained my health problems. I studied Andrews literature on sleeping on a slope, which I was very dubious about at first. They then brought my 6 inch sloping bed (designed by Andrew) up to Teesside the following year. This distance from Devon to Teesside was; as his wife said "almost like driving to Scotland" (in those days there were very few motorways)

On delivery,Andrew said the only thing I suggest is to persevere sleeping on the new bed for at least 2 months. NINETEEN years later every night I enjoy my beautiful sleeps on my 6 inch sloping bed - never ever to return to a flat bed.

So what has changed in 19 years?

1.   Slipped disc - I do not have any pains except for stiffness early morning, but that disappears through the day.

2.   Keratitus - disappeared within weeks never to return.

3.   Tinnitus - disappeared also within weeks never to return.

4.   Sciatica - disappeared over a period of one year - never to return. Walking stick used for firewood.

5.   Arthritis - disappeared within one year. I could play my piano again without pain!

6.   Varicose veins - drastically reduced, still visible.

7.   Right leg thick fluid swelling - slight fluid to low leg however the more I exercise during the day the less it becomes. Left leg also.

Side effects - gone completely.

After six months of starting to sleep on my sloping bed I weaned myself off ALL drugs. Then from 1996 I occasionally took my own soft drugs from over the counter. However since 2001 I have NEVER taken any form of drugs; either prescribed or otherwise. All residue "Harsh"pain has vanished. What I can say; in all honesty is that now I can MANAGE my day to day pain, and that body management becomes the main purpose of my life. I have taken complete responsibility of my health. Something I would of never of thought possible.

I am extremely grateful towards Andrew Fletcher for having discovered this simple raised bed principle and persistently evolving it under extreme adverse media and medical pressure.

Thank you again Andrew.

Sincerely

David A Baines.

Back pain, celulite, diarrhea and sickness, varicose veins,

Hi Andrew

It's been awhile since I added a post but to be honest the last few months have been full of ups and downs. Mainly due to the life changing effect the IBT has had on Alun. I am truly amazed at the difference that has occurred in his leg health. His varicose veins as you had predicted have receded so that they are barely visible. I cannot understand why more money is not being allocated to this study which would save the NHS literally millions of pounds, where is the logic in that!

The leg pains my husband has had over the years have at times reduced him to tears and after endless examinations and procedures nothing has ever been diagnosed, we literally could not go shopping together as it was guaranteed that his legs would ache not with the varicose veins but around the knee. We could not enjoy any alcoholic beverages as the same thing would occur. I am very happy to report that both of these have almost been eradicated. I am a happy woman!
I have to stress that these changes have not occurred overnight but over a matter of months but the results can only speak for themselves we have nothing to gain by glorifying this.

As for myself I recently reported changes to my menstrual cycle which to be honest is still a little irregular.

An observation i did make though was that whilst having the dreaded 'diarrhea and sickness' bug last year alun slept on the incline whilst myself and the children who were unable to bear the atrocious noise from upstairs slept downstairs. Whilst aluns bug lasted a matter of around 3 - 4 hours, my bug dragged on for almost 36 hours. I had not noticed particularly before this some subtle changes that had happened either. Whilst stopping down at my mothers for a night or two i had to sleep on a flat bed and i have to tell you i could not have predicted missing that incline so much. I was literally chilled to the bone! It didn't matter what i did i could not warm myself up and I woke up in agony. When i got back home and back into that bed it was like being wrapped up i a blanket and cuddled! It did take a few days for the effect on my back to wear off. This is a change i would not have acknowledged before this.

In general my back has improved one heck of a lot. I occasionally wake up with it aching but honestly this is far far less than before and doesn't last for days as before, more like hours. My hip honestly rarely hurts now. I have been able to walk longer distances and this is absolutely brilliant for me and this was something that worried me.

Another thing I did experience was for about a month after Christmas, so having been on the incline for about 4 months, i experienced quite a lot of knee pain. The knee pain occurred in my left knee and strangely enough this is the side that my hip always gave me the pain. I am happy to say that this is something that has subsided.

I do wake up some mornings with pain on the outside edge of my left foot although this does subside after awhile as well.

Oh and good news for the ladies, i can definitely see a huge difference in the cellulite to my legs and bottom and there aren't many cures for that! Whether this is helped by the amount of fluid i now drink or the fact that the muscle tone is improved i am not too sure but it has happened. No complaints here.

When in a flat bed i always slept on my left side or on my stomach and interestingly i can sleep on neither now. I can now only sleep on my right side or my back.

All in all, i would say that although i had doubts and reservations about the simplicity of IBT and the effects that it could have, I can only give positive comments as I can only comment on what I see and feel.

With the varicose veins, i cant understand why anyone would actually resort to surgery or invasive chemicals to reduce them when the 9 months alun has spent on IBT have proved that this works. Full Stop.

Alun and I have two children, our eldest son suffers from asthma, eczema and hayfever and this does cause him a few problems. The youngest has a very mild form of cerebral palsy, which affects him physically in that he does struggle with P.E and gross motor movements although this is far improved from when he was a small child, mainly due to his determination.

Our eldest sons asthma has been worse lately and at times unpredictable. On a recent trip to High Force which is a massive waterfall, our son was fine whilst walking down to the waterfall but when at the foot of this his asthma came on quite severely which was worrying to us proving the effect of humidity on asthma and the body. It literally drained him. On another occasion we went to Hamsterly forrest we were again confronted with this sudden onset of his asthma just as it started to rain.

The next plan for us is to put the children on an incline and note what happens there and not only are we looking forward to that but so are the children.

I honestly don't think that we could go back to a flat bed now.

I will keep noting any changes as regular as I can.

I cant really thank you enough and really hope that things change and people can just sit up and realise what you are doing here.

I think in the near future you will be repeating those little words 'I told you so!' quite a lot Andrew....
