4 days ago, we were shown an ankle that for 28 years had not moved, it was fixed in the same position, following a severe break, resulting in surgery and metal plates, which were removed after 6 months because they were protruding through the skin. During the 28 years the patient slept on a flat bed.
After 4 days of sleeping on an inclined bed raised 6 inches / 15cm at the head end, this morning of 08 September 2015 full movement and rotation has been restored, which the patient claims is a miracle. It is of course sound repeatable science.
An xray confirmed arthritis had set in a year earlier and more recently she was told that she would never move the ankle again.
The patient experience sever pain in her affected foot this morning 08-09-2015 which awakened her abruptly. On standing up she realised that she had regained her ability to move the damaged ankle.
The implications of this for sports injuries and many other broken bones and torn ligaments are immense but will undoubtedly be ignored as has been the case for 20 years of research.
In addition the patient has reported improvements in sight within the same period and we have noticed her skin is less yellow which was a cause for concern.
She is sleeping much better since sleeping inclined and reports her bedding is neat and tidy in the mornings instead of her being "tied up with the bedding"
She also reports improvements in restless legs syndrome ( Willis-Ekbom disease)
She says; " I am very satisfied that I can now move my ankle, and have proved them wrong when they said it would never move again.
The same return of sensation and movement happened to my mother back in early 1995 after 4 weeks of Inclined Bed Therapy. Her movement was restored after 11 years of being unable to move her ankle.7 days of inclined bed therapy, noticing skin on arms and legs is soft and supple, quite different to before her bed was raised.
We also noticed her skin was yellow, indicating jaundice and this has also greatly improved. Her medications include Metformin for diabetes, which is suspect in causing jaundice.
