Sufficient quality sleep is a fundamental pillar when it comes to health, happiness and looking and feeling amazing. Yet many of us struggle with it.
I have written extensively on ways to improve your sleep quality in THESE articles. But I decided to hear what other sleep experts recommend when it comes to improving sleep.
I reached out to some of the top sleep coaches, sleep gurus, sleep consultants and sleep experts in the world and asked them three simple questions:
- What is their top supplement for improving sleep?
- What is their top item for improving sleep?
- What is their top tip for improving sleep?
Below I have shared their answers!

Andrew K Fletcher - Originator of Inclined Bed Therapy at InclinedBedTherapy.com
Your top supplement for improving sleep? Gravity. It's free.
Your top product for improving sleep? Inclined Bed / Furniture Risers, Books, Bricks, Wooden Blocks used to raise the head end of a bed. You can read more about this HERE and how high to raise a bed depending upon bed length HERE.
Your top tip for improving sleep? Stay off flat beds - Avoid flat bed rest syndrome.
Other tips include:
Avoid memory foam mattresses. Best mattress is a natural fibre spring type. Use only one pillow. Memory foam causes us to overheat and sweat, it also dips under our weight and causes back ache and pain.
Rotate your posture during the night and best to sleep without underwear, due to it riding up while sleeping inclined.
Avoid sleeping with hands near pillow as this will cause numbness as it compromises circulation, which validates IBT theory
Use cotton sheets. Wrap a duvet or blanket around your mattress to prevent slipping down. Not a problem for most, but some do take time to settle in.
Keep a journal to note all changes, to help understand what is happening with sleeping inclined and please help Dr J.P Torre at Join Dr Torre's Inclined Bed Therapy Survey Who is conducting an independent analysis of the many effects reported from people with or without health issues and sleeping inclined.
Inclined Bed Therapy increases fertility and has been shown to correct erectile dysfunction. Be warned unless your planning for a baby.
IBT - Drug requirements can change, especially in Diabetes and Parkinson's so please monitor for changes.
IBT - Blood pressure has been shown to move in both directions, so please monitor for changes.
