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!

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.

Relapsing remitting ms, nocturia,snoring, acid reflux, neuropathic pain

Dear Andrew
My husband raised the head of our bed because he had heard about the benefits of it on the radio. He suffered from really bad snoring and acid reflux and going to the toilet several times a night. His energy levels were at an all time low and was really irritable because his sleep was interrupted so much. WOW - since raising the bed head his snoring (which kept waking me up) has dramatically improved as well as his acid reflux and doesn't get up to go to the loo as much. He has a lot more energy and isn't as irritable. But that is just half the story. I suffer from relapse remitting MS and the benefits I have gained is more than what any GP could have done for me. I sleep through the night instead of being wakened with acute leg pain, I have more energy and I actually feel refreshed and rested in a morning. I also go to sleep almost straight away instead of tossing and turning in pain. I will be contacting my consultant and MS nurse as well as my local MS group to tell them about the benefits of raising the head of the bed. I hope that you get the recognition that you deserve for your work into this and am amazed that you haven't yet had it.

Migraine Headaches, antiphospholipid syndrome, gerd,

Will be uploading the transcript for the video as soon as it is ready for those that prefer to read testimonials

The video is well worth watching and covers a lot of subjects and the logic behind this incredible discovery.
 


Watch Jasons Testimonial here



Tony Moran & Andrew K Fletcher Interview with Andy Young and Jason Holmes on RN.

This Tuesday Andy & Jason were delighted to Welcome back Andrew K Fletcher the originator of Inclined Bed Therapy along with the new WBF Cruiser Weight World Champion to tell us how IBT played a huge part in Tony’s remarkable  championship whilst homeless at the age of 42 !!!!

Tony was unable to join us at the very start of the show as he had a prior engagement but we started off with Jason telling Andrew about the marvelous benefits he has had with his health since he inclined his bed a couple of months ago.

Jason has seen huge improvements in his sleep pattern, quality of sleep and also his problem with ALS also known as sticky blood.

We then talked with Andrew about other successes people have had by this simple and inexpensive method of simply elevating the head of ones bed by 6 inches or 15cm.

After a short while Tony was able to join us and he told us why Inclined Bed Therapy was so important to him and how it had changed his fighting career in such a massive way.

Tony told us how it has helped him to sleep better and feel fresher in the morning but also to recover from fatigue and injuries much faster than he had previously.

We would like to say a massive thank you to Tony and Andrew for both making time to speak to us and also, as always, thanks to all our listeners for their loyal support.

You can check out Andrew’s research and his many testimonials from those he has helped on his Inclined Bed Therapy website.

You can also find out more about this amazing health discovery on the Inclined bed Therapy facebook page.

You can read about Tony’s incredible story here  and also here

Edema / Dreams

T2 diabetic.  Came home from a travel nightmare to find I'd lost my ankles.  First time I've had edema and it scared me, so I went looking for information.  I found IBT.  I figured it couldn't hurt, right?  I have books underneath the head of the bed.  First night, the edema went down by 50%, second night 90%, and was gone by the third night.  I made no other changes.  It's been three weeks now and I noticed something ele.  I haven't dreamt in years, but have been consistently dreaming with IBT.  I see that someone else reports the same thing -- does anyone have a theory on this?  I still have "fuzzy feet" on waking, but nerve damage doesn't get fixed overnight.

Severe Inflammation Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue,

I have to say how impressed I am with Andrew K Fletcher for all the work he does to promote this amazing technique as a free health recalibrator. Thank you Andrew with all my heart.

A friend on Facebook shared Andrews website and I diligently began researching all the information. I have suffered with severe Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue, and ElectroHypersensitivity. It took me four years to work out that wireless frequencies from mobile phones/Wi-Fi and towers were triggering the Fibromyalgia and leaving me almost completely incapacitated for months on end. The whole upper half of my body was consistently inflammed throughout all the Lymph nodes, arms, neck and shoulder blades for years. After isolating myself from the public, I managed to control my condition and manage the occassional exposure but the chronic inflammation remained. I have been an avid researcher, convinced I was going to find a cure for my problems so when I came across Andrews message, and that he was giving this information away for free, I jumped straight in. I raised my bed 3 inches for a few days at my place and at my partners place. Then a few days later, I raised my bed at home by another 3 inches.

I went to my partners and slept on the bed that was only raised 3 inches and the next morning I felt like I'd been run over by a truck. I then raised the bed to 6 inches and have maintained that diligently for approx 7 weeks now. My energy went up, I starting sleeping through the night, and I never needed to get up for the toilet anymore. Something amazing happened then. Almost all the inflammation in the upper half of my body went down, or more to the point, it moved down. I got a flare up of Fibro in my stomach, lower back, and legs and it took me 2 weeks to recognize what it was as I wasn't used to getting it there.

It took 3 weeks to recover from it and I added a Chinese Medication that reduces inflammation too. The inflammation has now gone down right through my body and I am convinced that this has happened due to the Thunder God Vine and Inclined Bed Therapy.

My physical reaction to electromagnetic frequencies has changed too. Before if i was out anywhere and someone started using a phone near me, I would have to move about 50 metres away to stop feeling it. Now I move 7 metres and I can't feel it. Before, when the phones got me, the inflammation was there for months and would take hours of painful massages while I screamed into a pillow to recover. Now it takes hours to get the inflammation down without the painful massages. I can't tell you how much of an improvement this is.

I was also diagnosed recently with a severe H.Pylori infection. It was evident the infection had been there for approx 50 years. After treating it, I suffered from severe Gastritis. I obviously have developed stomach ulcers. The H.Pylori had managed to shut most of my Liver detox pathways down and my Thyroid. Although I'd managed to reverse the Hashimotos naturally, my Thyroid was so inflammed on the left side, I was going to get it ultrasounded again as it felt as though there were nodules on it. This was when I raised my bed and all the inflammation went down in my upper body. This included the left side of my Thyroid and I now have no swelling at all. In fact, I think raising my bed has helped with restoring both my Thyroid and my Liver detox pathways as both appear to be working better than they have in years.

I can't recommend Inclined Bed Therapy enough to people and I just nominated Andrew for the Ted talks award. I believe if Andrew could win the money, he could get this message out to so many more people worldwide. I'll be praying he does.

A MIRACLE Chronic Back Pain

Following a schoolboy prank 50 years ago i have endured chronic back pain which has fluctuated between painful and unbearable pain. this has impacted so adversely on my life in many many areas. i have visited osteopaths and chiropractors on numerous occasions (sometimes once a week for extended periods) but have found this only to be a tempoary fix. for 50 years i thought that this was the best i would feel.

then in february 2016 i read about andrew's inclined bed therapy and agreed with the website 'what have i got to lose?' within days i was totally pain free - a miracle had happened!! i cannot emphasise just how beneficial this has been to my life - the only downside being that i have become a pest, extoling the virtues of IBT to those who will listen and to those who dont want to listen - they all get the same miraculous story!

to date i have several friends/family who have tried IBT and they all report improvements. all praise to Andrew, i cannot thank him enough.
