    • Tried to get the message across!
    • 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

The Edwin Smith papyrus: a clinical reappraisal of the oldest known document on spinal injuries


Dating from the seventeenth century b.c. the Edwin Smith papyrus is a unique treatise containing the oldest known descriptions of signs and symptoms of injuries of the spinal column and spinal cord. Based on a recent “medically based translation” of the Smith papyrus, its enclosed treasures in diagnostic, prognostic and therapeutic reasoning are revisited. Although patient demographics, diagnostic techniques and therapeutic options considerably changed over time, the documented rationale on spinal injuries can still be regarded as the state-of-the-art reasoning for modern clinical practice.
