    • Thank you for helping to share IBT on Radio 2. I know how difficult it is to get a mention for IBT, so well done to you :) The re-emergence of half moons on the nails, confirms that your circulation has improved.

    • Tried to get the message across!
    • Hi, Just wanted to let you know that my husband decided to try and get the message out on radio 2 last week (Simon Mayo Drivetime) He used the fact that one of the listeners had asked as their homework question if anything can make you taller. We included your name and website but of course they didn't read that bit out unfortunately, you need to f/f to roughly 1:41: Sorry if that's the wrong format and feel free to put this post where it should be! ;-) Quick update - I have ms (26 years) EDSS 8 and my husband is more than happy to be sleeping inclined with me again after an enforced break. I did complete the tracking form originally about 6 years ago, but as I'm a bit of a technophobe I've not managed to find it on here - and my email has also changed which didn't help! Only restarted IBT about a month ago this time and already neither of us can sleep flat anymore. Couldn't wait to get back to 'our' bed after what should have been a nice break for 2 days. Also, only a small thing so far but surely significant in such a short space of time - our nail half moons have begun to reappear! I know for definite that I only had one on my thumb. Thanks for giving us all hope Andrew. Best wishes Elaine & Rob

    • Reduction of respiratory diseases after using IBT
    • Dear all, this topic is mostly directed to you, who are using IBT for few months or longer. I am just curious if can sleeping in the slope improve overall health in case of respiratory diseases. For example do you have an experience that the frequency of these disorders was reduced after using IBT? Theoretically, there should by some kind of connection in between, because IBT helps in breathing improvement, reduction of toxins from the system or just improves blood flow in the tissue. I am just curious in this topic, because as autumn starts, I suffer from these respiratory diseases regularly. It is not the only issue, I want to try IBT for, thats why I am asking if you have experience. Best regards, Topr

Myelin only grows in accordance to the direction of gravity!

Hello people with ms and neurological damage, is it time to wake up to Inclined Bed Therapy?

The damaged nervous system only grows in one direction!

Just like seedlings grow in the direction of gravity and just like the tendrils grow in jelly fish, there is a clear pattern of nerve regeneration using an inclined bed that is being ignored and yet here is the evidence that supports the fact that nerves grow in only one direction.

In the spinal cord injured patient and indeed the patient with multiple sclerosis, damaged nerves in the main nervous system are frequently and erroneously thought to be beyond repair. Yet we have seen that this is clearly not the case?

If we sleep for 8 hours on a flat bed. Gravity is working against the nervous system and confusing the direction of growth. So instead of those myelin tendrils reaching down to find the correct pathway below the injury site, they simply bunch up and eventually contract.

Résumé / Abstract
Myelin figures which grow from a floating egg-yolk lecithin lump on a surface of water/glycerin mixture have been found to grow only vertically towards the bottom of a glass cell and never to grow horizontally along the medium surface nor radially. The structure of the growing myelin figures is basically simple rod-like or a bundle of a few simple rods. Helixing, twisting or coiling myelin figures were never observed under the present experimental condition. Taking the results obtained from the reported growth behaviour of myelin figures into consideration, it is proposed that one of the driving forces of helixing, coiling and twisting growth of myelin figures is thought to be due to a chemical potential difference caused by a concentration gradient along the radial direction perpendicular to the long axis of a myelin figure. The hydrocarbon chains in the fully hydrated stacked bilayer of myelin figures are proposed to he in a more ordered state than reported so far. The arrangement of hydrocarbon chains, both in myelin figures and in an egg-yolk lecithin/water complex, and the density of them also will be discussed.
