Research In Circulation And Posture, by Andrew K Fletcher

It’s a fair question to ask what qualifications I have to question the literature that all of the qualified people rely upon. I do not have medical qualifications, nor have I ever claimed to have. View the video on Youtube and listen to what the reporter states about qualifications.

When I began this fascinating research journey, I had no idea where it was heading or indeed that I needed any qualifications to think freely and follow a logical direction. I still do not have a PhD on my chosen subject of gravity-assisted circulation, but what I do have is by far more useful than a framed certificate on the wall. It is called freedom to problem solve at my own pace without any external influences to cloud my judgement. This is important in this instance because having little knowledge of human physiology all those years ago was a huge bonus because it allowed me to look at the whole picture of circulation from a different perspective. Varicose veins going flat when the bed is raised at the head end for instance does not fit happily with current physiology literature, in fact, the opposite tilt is advised to temporarily relieve the pressure and oedema by shifting the problem to the upper part of the body. The problem with this approach is, it clearly does not resolve the oedema or varicose vein problems!

The photographs of varicose veins I have provided pose some very serious problems for the literature. Here we have tilted the bed at a 5 degree head up angle that has clearly reversed the venous pressure problem that caused the varicose vein which until now was believed to be a result of damaged valves in the veins. We have not replaced the valves in the man’s legs, again this poses more problems for the literature.

We are clearly altering the pressure inside the veins by relying on the pull of gravity in the correct IBT direction! So why should the veins in other parts of the body have a separate pressure dependency? What separates the jugular vein from the varicose vein in the leg for example?

over 20 years of my life have been dedicated to this subject which is hardly lacking in an understanding of physiology. One would have to be blindfolded isolated, deafened and blinkered to not have absorbed a massive amount of papers and literature along this adventure. Many years ago science was conducted by people who were fascinated by it's many unexplored avenues.

Free thinking is not a handycap, it is a useful too!

2% of people who read about my research take an interest in it and tilt their beds to see if anything can come of it. That leaves 98% to find their own avenues and I have no problem with this whatsoever.
