Website: http://www.ms-uk.org/This report should have created a storm of interest in ms circles, yet the majority of people with ms will probably never read it or realise it's significance. Yet simply raising the head end of your bed by six inches / 15 cm can have a positive affect on your health and symptoms relating to multiple sclerosis. Furthermore unrelated symptoms have also been reported to improve.
But this report is not just about multiple sclerosis. Within this document are reports from two people with complete spinal cord injuries who also observed improvemnts in sensation, bowl and bladder control and movement.
John Simkins said; "In the whole of my time working with people who have ms. This is the first time I have seen something that has a direct positive influence over multiple sclerosis".
