Whether inclined bed therapy works or not is a silly question...twenty years of enough evidence is clear enough. Why it doesn't get accepted so easily is the more interesting question. Some people feel almost embarrassed to admit benefit....others somehow don't seem to notice very well. Others feel and see benefits instantly and admit and report back. These are different conditions of us humans in an emotional sense. Something long ago studied in detail by Freud, Reich, and now Konia. It's another topic altogether..I.e. Is it malicious intent to suppress something so simple and effective because it will spoil their cake...or are we as emotionally sick humans capable of suppressing it ourselves...out of a deep primal fear of getting well....I think the truth is both.
Anyway, The AIDS patient that inclined two weeks ago is sleeping better and improving all round. Admitting as well. The other patient with oedema and breathlessness and general fatigue ..in her 60s...is so well it's amazing her. An ex nurse, says she remembers some cardios recommending ' reverse Trendellenberg' technique....inclined bed..way back in the seventies in South Africa. Didn't think everyone would benefit though. She is already telling other old people she knows and within a few days is hearing miraculous stories. But then like I say, more anecdotal stories are almost overkill. I will get another AiDS patient to inclined her bed, but this one does medicals very often, so we will see if the white blood cell count etc improve...changing nothing else. I already know what will happen though, as I have dealt with patients for many years...as soon as you improve the kidney function everything else improves. There isn't a doubt about this.
So, our challenge isn't to produce more and more success stories, as if we ourselves doubt it and are trying to convince ourselves....the real challenge is to find out and address WHY something this effective isn't mainstream twenty years later...on our terms...not on their silly double blind terms. I for one know I can get hundreds of people to incline...have already got them to do stuff that's not conventional.
But I love the anecdotes anyway....so we report them all the same. For me it's been a revelation. Not very sick but struggling with minor issues for years....then suddenly the inclined bed corrects most of them in three weeks is refreshing and exciting, not terrifying like some would feel. I also noticed I can do 15 minutes of ozone ear insufflation at quite a high concentration without getting the usual burning discharges!! This is highly significant....means the cerebrospinal fluid is circulating and detoxing nicely. The ozone people would be saved so much tears if they knew this. We can cure brain cancer with ear insufflation....now with IBT the time would be halved I am sure!! Even my eyesight is sharper...mental acuity improved, alertness up, digestion improved....muscle still a bit sore like they are stretching...a welcome feeling though. Excellent! It is good to notice and acknowledge all the benefit.
There are vested interests preventing IBT from becoming mainstream. One ms doctor / specialist told one of the patients using IBT that it would never be allowed to become mainstream. The question is why would anyone be so sure that it would be shelved? This makes them complicit in deliberately preventing ms patients from learning about the benefits of IBT.
Most "controlled studies" are conducted by people funded by drug companies, either directly or through universities or in the US through government agency's who are in the pockets of drug companies. This is big business and anything that reduces the drug sales is seen as a threat and suppressed.
Charities also fund studies, again some of their huge donations come for drug companies and therefore they fund the tiny proportion of their takings designated to research back into the drug companies, almost laundering money.
Corruption is more widespread than we realise.
Then there are those that depend upon repeat surgeries such as vascular surgeons who would not relish the fact that tilting a bed could prevent most of the surgeries and reduce swelling in the veins.
What a sad civilisation. We let them get away with suppression of such things though..because some of us feel terrified ourselves of something that is so simple and works so effectively. This has to be so. Otherwise we would all demand and force. It will be interesting here when I start talking to the health minister and so on....maybe I can get at least the rural hospitals to use it. The MMS people tried to get countries in Africa to use it for malaria though and nothing came of it. Even though the Red Cross ran successful trials. Like I say...how sad.
I remember that picture described...they actually performed a Caesarian op in the 1870s I think.
A friend of mine is researching the language here linked to proto Egyptian and
Sumerian....amazing, he can translate old Sumerian better than the best scholars, just by reading it in
Setswana. So you are correct, maybe here we can revive inclined bed therapy, for it is ours anyway. Love the cheetah logo of yours....it is my local given name that a powerful Shaman called me. Amazing.
Moving into second month inclined and I am still impressed. Many things happening. Firstly, the month of acclimatization mentioned commonly is a bit inadequate for us Africans...I suspect we are slightly more poisoned than the rest. Still adjusting both me and my wife. We get sudden episodes of feeling cold and weak and then almost a popping open...from my experience sounds like liver and gallstones moving out. I suspect the formation of gallstones has something to do with lack of gravity ( point for Andrew to consider). My nail half moons are reappearing...they had just about vanished. Skin tone improved. Emotional detox not so bad ...I am not too bad in that department so didn't expect much drama here.
I must say...it's quite a significant change in our lives...I have studied naturopathy and the Clark protocols and ozone therapy and lots and lots of other things...have even cured level three cancer patients. Now I see that inclined bed therapy could be the big one!! Even earthing is a lousy second.....MS patients only get results when they are earthed for a minimum of sixteen hours a day. Ozone can also help MS..but the therapy is intense. We can improve autism with EMF mitigation, ozone, body cleansing. But all the healing modalities I have seen and witnessed doing wonders pale to IBT. It is amazing that all ' great ' doctors and healers have totally missed it...even though it's been around for a long time, really amazes me this.
Something like this is what I have found as a good explanation of our behavior when confronted by something so ingenious as IBT...well,the ones who act strange, most of us keep quiet and benefit
Just underwent a very very long flight to the U.S. from South Africa and I must say....I am not even half as tired and initially jet lagged as usual..and have been coming here annually for years!! Will be interesting inclined in the hotel how the recovery will go. Wonderful..wonderful...means I am generally healthier.
Definite improvement in the way I recovered from jet lag. It didn't shorten the time per se, but I had hardly any discomfort!! Still undergoing some detox reactions though...old conditions coming to the fore. It is quite clear to me what IBT is doing....its correcting a great fault in the way we live. It's right up there with Semmelweis washing of hands....he just about got killed for it, and with squatting for bowel evacuation...the modern toilet stool is the cause of many bowel issues, ,,and earthing or grounding, which is something the lack of which has caused us all sorts of ills. These correct fundamental errors in our so called modern civilization. They are not in line with capitalism, and will probably never become mainstream. Washing of hands had to be squeezed in.,it's too obvious to ignore...so we will just have to live with the situation.
It is almost pointless to outline every single benefit that I am experiencing as it's an underlying thing....on incline I feel that every other thing I do with my health ow works!! Like using a zapper for instance...or taking anti parasite herbs...or having a deep tissue massage! I personally thank Andrew Fletcher for his selflessness. I will continue the HIV AIDS mini trial for his and all our sakes...but am not too optimistic about the authorities ' rolling' it out....that will have to be us informing people and letting them decide for themselves.
Great news re jet lag, I did some experiments with long drives, 700 miles round trip. Usually legs ache, feel stiff getting out of the car. Raised the seat higher with a cushion and did same journey again without any stiffness or aching and did not feel tired as was normally the case. So simply changing your seat so that it is raised level or slightly higher than your knees will also ease jet lag and keep pilots alert on long haul flights.
Spent two nights on a flat bed while away from home. Caught a virus, feels like flu symptoms, runny nose, coughing, sore throat, aching etc etc. Spent one night on incline and noticed improvements, today second day on incline feeling much better.
Will take your advice and hoist my feet over the rudder pedals for long hauls!! That rapid deterioration bothers me somewhat.....we have been sleeping for years flat, slowly getting sick....then start inclining, improving. One or two nights surely shouldn't take us back that much...must be something else. Would also mean the other factors that cause illness...EMF, geostress, etc are still active. Have seen you holding a DECT phone to your ear for over an hour on interview....something I wouldn't do. Hate to think that once on incline for a while we would become suddenly very weak and sick sleeping flat....something about that. Once one recovers....one should then take longer to get ill when re- exposed to disease causative factors. In my case I am combining inclining with earthing and anti geopathic stress measures....as well as other modalities. I even dowse my hotel beds...sometimes have to drag it across the room to avoid lines. :-/
During the earthing research some truckers connected themselves electrically to the chassis of their trucks and found they didn't get as tired as usual after long drives...similar effect. Dark filed microscopy showed the blood instantly moving faster...well the blood cells..when an earthing connection is made. Either way...I am not sleeping flat anymore. Have my traveling bed risers, and my TravelWedge that I just got here.
My take is that the infection was present but because circulation was good, it prevented fluids from slowing down and therefore stops endocytosis / phagocytosis which is the pathways that bacteria and virus invade cells. I suspect gravity also plays a role in both, affording denser invading cells to distort cell walls inwards until they are wrapped inside the host. in much the same way as fertilization takes place. Keeping those blood cells lymph and cerebrospinal fluids moving prevents cell invasion. Furthermore, the core body temperature drops by 2 degrees sleeping flat. This did not happen when my wife and I measured our bp hourly, which was exactly the same method which arrived at the 2 degree drop. Lowering your body temperature 2 degrees leaves your immune system weakened and in this window is where viruses and bacteria proliferate.
