Broken Ankle 28 Years Unable To Move It. 4 days of Inclined Bed Therapy IBT Movement is Restored

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.Psoriasis on elbows healed after 7 days of Inclined Bed Therapy7 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.

Powerful information, compelling results

I'm a newcomer to IBT, but wanted to relate what a difference it has made so far.


I raised the head of my bed about 4 weeks ago after hearing Andrew's original visit on the One Radio Network Archives. The story and research were so compelling, I wasted no time. These are the things I've noticed already:


1. I no longer have to get up 2-3 times per night to use the bathroom.  Now maybe once, but usually none.


2. My ankles and legs are slimmer now because circulation is moving edema out.  Also, my face and chin line don't have that early morning "bloat".


3. My varicose veins appear to be less prominent in my legs.


4. My post nasal drip (all my life) has virtually disappeared.


5.  My low back and joints aren't stiff for 2 hours in the morning.  I feel limber and good the very moment I get out of bed.  Before the IBT, I always had trouble sleeping because no matter which side I slept on, my hips would ache.  By the end of the first week, my hips no longer ached at night.


6.  I've had a persistent case of psoriasis on my lower leg for over 2 years.  Nothing worked in healing the itch or removing the ugly red patch of dry skin.  In just 3 or 4 weeks, it has healed 95%.  It is hardly visible and the itch and ugly skin is gone.  Also, the skin on my legs has been severely dry for over a decade, and now the intense dryness has subsided.


7. When I wake up in the morning I feel rested and happy and alert. Before IBT, I sometimes resisted going to bed.  Now, I look forward to it.  I'll never sleep in a flat bed again.


I never use pharmaceutical drugs or medications, so I know there are no other factors present to evoke these amazing improvements.


I am eager to see what other results I'll get after more time passes.  I do tell everyone I know to look up Andrew's information and try it for's the best couple dollars (bricks or bed risers) they'll ever spend for their health.


Much gratitude to Andrew Fletcher for putting all of this information together and telling the world about it.  As our voices join with yours, more and more will know.

GERD (acid reflux) / Fatty Thigh Lumps / Snoring / Improved Sleep / Coughing / Nocturia

Cellulite gone in two weeks after commensing Inclined Bed Therapy (IBT)Just writing in to say thank you, you are a genius, and have really helped my health as well as many of my friends' health, here in California.

I have been sleeping inclined for a few weeks now, and its been amazing. Most of my "fatty" thigh lumps have disappeared (many after just one week on the inclined bed), my sleep became deeply restorative, my silent GERD vanished. I do not cough and clear my throat any more, I do not snore any more. I do not get up to go to the bathroom twice a night any more. I am not foggy headed in the am from poor sleep, breathing, digestion etc. I could swear my skin tone has improved.

The nature of my urine has definitely changed as well. I collect my am urine to compost (we have a drought, and I read in a book written pre WWII that urine makes great nitrogenous composting material). Well it used to be much more dilute before. In the last two weeks, minerals have precipitated out and stuck to the sides and bottom. So you are correct. In this position, you do secrete more concentrated urine, with a lot more mineral density. I wish we could do more detailed research on this.


My 75 year old friends' varicose veins have greatly improved. She is sleeping better. I am measuring her leg edema as well, and will keep you posted on the changes. I am attaching a picture of my mightily smoothened thigh as well. As a reference, it used to look like a moon crater previously. Wish I had taken a before picture as well, so you could've seen the big bumps. But I did not know this was going to occur, else I would have. 


Bless you, for what you are doing.

Avalina on Awake Radio U.S. Shares her IBT experience Acid Reflux - Gerd and much more

Link to Avalina sharing her experience with Inclined Bed Therapy (IBT)
Avalina also discusses the changes in people she has advised to sleep with the head of the bed raised 6 inches. Varicose veins, spine problems, snoring and more.

Below is the transcript including the timeframe on the video relating to Avalina's video testimony.

I had terrible stomach problems for a number

of years and I went to the Doctor but unfortunately
the tablets I was given had many side effects.

Course they do
Yes of course so one of them unfortunately

was breast enlargement and being a small lady
That can't be a bad thing he he he he

I didn't want to have a sort of over toppling
problem you know

Anyway so I came off those and well didn't
know what to do really and found Andrew's

inclined bed therapy and thought I would give
it a try.

My husband made the bed and I can safely say
within 2 or 3 days I had no more stomach problems.

Yeah so I am a great advocate of
not only that I find I am more refreshed in

the morning I sleep better and I get over
things quicker, you know illnesses and I am

less thirsty in the mornings and it's a great
mood lifter.

Brilliant yes.
Did you say your husband is trying it?

Is that David?
Yes it is

Hello David
Well yes we are getting around to it we sleep

in separate beds, Yeah I like to sleep separately,
I like to get a good nights sleep.

But yeah we are working on that David at some
point we are going to order the wood when

we have got some money order some wood at
the end of the year and my husband will make

an inclined bed for himself

Thank you for chipping in, very interesting.
What were your stomach problems, acid reflux?

Yes that's right, I mean it is so debilitating
all day finding whatever you eat you just

feel you have got this terrible heart burn
and acid reflux and all related problems etc,

it didn't matter what I did, let's just say
that other things have helped too since then,

but the first thing that helped was the inclined
bed therapy

Yeah from there I was able to take things

further, you know change diet eventually etc
but to start off not to have to take the tablet

and have a natural replacement for that you
know was really important to me. I don't like

taking tablets.
Was that zantac, I just hate having to take

Oh yes exactly, I am not a person for taking

tablets so I really did resent taking anything
that could give me side effects so it was

lovely, really great to have that feeling
of ahh I have got some relief with the inclined

bed therapy and then from then on I could
make changes. So I have stayed inclined and

what I suppose I aught to say to people is
to try it and stay on it, don't come off it

when your symptoms have ceased. When you feel
that things have changed, I know a lot of

people have said oh I tried it and it was
really great, but then went back of course

to sleeping flat. Well I think that is a disaster.
Why would they do that

Well people I suppose sleeping in bed with
partners, perhaps there have been problems

there and.
I said there was a couch

Yeah well that's right but I can understand
but you know I suppose that's what I want

to say really is stay with it if you are going
to do inclined bed therapy don't give up after

a couple of months stay with it.

Interesting that you were talking about people
who were on it that got away because I can't

get away, when I went away to my sisters place
in Vermont and I had to sleep flat I thought

that I was going to die in my sleep
Yeah, absolutely, you feel suffocated don't

Yes yes

I also want to tell you something great that
happened because I live on a small island

and there is only 57 of us and 3 people here
also sleep inclined. One particular man they

are all elderly but one of them had a very
bad varicose vein in his leg and for years

he has had this varicose vein.
I would say it was in 3 or four days his varicose

vein disappeared after sleeping inclined.
Which is fantastic isn't it

It is fantastic
That's beautiful

Yeah and he stayed inclined. I say to him
are you still inclined? He says Oh yes. he

he he he
And another guy also had a very bad neck problem

and there has been no therapist that managed
to sort it out.

He was suffering with his neck problem so
I thought I would mention it to him and he

said Oh I will give it a try and again that
was within literally within a week. He said

I don't believe it, what Doctors couldn't
fix, sleeping so simply it's fixed. He said

I am telling everyone I'm telling everyone,
i'm driving people mad, I'm telling them ha

ha ha ha
He has become an inclined bed bore like the

rest of us.
Yeah absolutely that's right

It is amazing some of the immediate benefits
a lot of them take a lot longer but my girlfriend

remarked immediately that my snoring had almost
been eliminated.

Oh Yeah Yeah The snoring is great
I told my cousin about that and suddenly her

and her husband were sleeping in the same
bed again now. Because it eliminated his snoring.

And then I called Andrew and told him about
this and he said oh yeah inclined bed therapy

has saved many marriages.

ha ha ha ha
Fantastic isn't it

Donald Fumerfelt's Inclined Bed Therapy experience, discussiong atherosclerosis, heart disease, back ache and more on Video

Donald Flumerfelt; 

Jason, I am touched by your devotion to your father's selfless work. I myself am as guilty as anyone for not sharing my own IBT experiences in the form of a written post. I cannot even figure out why.

Yet take a poll of my co workers, customers, family, relatives, friends, enemies, neighbours, and ask them if they have ever heard me promoting inclined bed therapy and crediting a guy in the UK named Andrew Fletcher. After they finish venting about how my enthusiasm borders on lunacy, they will say "yes" and then immediately tell you they are in a hurry and haven't the time to hear how water REALLY gets to the tops trees taller than a hand pumped well without benefit of a foot valve.

They may however chuckle while relaying my wish that the parking lot where I work was located at the edge of a cliff so I demonstrate for Yale Researchers the concept behind my 80 year old mothers ability to sit and move her left foot onto her right knee without using her hands for the first time in five years.

They may also confide in you that they seriously considered blocking my number and email address for sending a link to a news-clip about a man who regained his ability to walk after ten years of paralysis.

But God forbid you accidentally start this conversation with my friend with MS who some days can barely walk at all. She only recently started speaking to me again after having stopped speaking to me for a year because I would not back off trying to persuade her to let me put blocks under the head end of her bed.

When she told me she did not want to sleep like a bat, I finally realized she had not read any of the links I sent, nor listened to a word I'd said. I am texting this message from my futon sofa which is tilted at 5 degrees.

Amazing I can hold phone above me this long without my fingers going numb like they would have just a year ago. I seriously believe I would have had a heart attack or stroke this past year had it not been for your fathers discovery of the real reasons sheep in a pasture or people on a beach all lay down with their heads pointing in the same direction.

Meanwhile a guy I know who underwent 3 back surgeries this past year, enjoyed mocking my insistence that 5.5" was the minimum elevation required to realize therapeutic benefit. Three years ago I could not stand up straight without help after planting 200 flowers in squatting position.

Last year I planted 1100 flowers without a single episode of back pain. I wonder why? Life is good today. Thank you Andrew K Fletcher. I have no plans of going on medication for cholesterol, blood pressure, heart disease or a stronger set of corrective lenses anytime soon.

Transcript from Donald's Radio Testimony to IBT

So Donald how has inclined bed therapy done
for you?

Oh it's done really well Andrew and I am actually
lying on my inclined sofa watching my computer.

I won't give this incline up for anything.
So Steve you would ask people how they have

gotten on to this thing? Yeah I was trying
to do the exact opposite of what Andrew suggested,

I had been to the doctor a couple of years
ago and she told me that I was, or she thought

I was getting heart disease or atherosclerosis
and wanted to put me on the medications that

are going around for that. I didn't want any
part of that.

So I had remembered I had rented a home one
time where the bed was actually inclined at

the foot end by a couple of inches and I thought
I was getting some relief from that, so I

went on the internet to see if something like
that would help me. The unfortunate thing

about doing research on the internet is that
I can find anything to corroborate any theory

I can come up with
That's true

So I tried to discipline myself to find anything
that corroborates the opposite, so I bumped

into some of the stuff Andrew had written
up talking about how we are supposed to sleep

the exact opposite way and I thought oh what
is this and I started to read into it and

I was like oh my goodness this guy has really
gone into a lot of detail so I had read the

recommendations to raise the head end of my
bed starting out with a few inches, well I

couldn't wait, I think I inclined about 4
inches and before bed time I already had it

up to six or 7"
Ha ha ha

That's where you belong

ha ha ha Thanks
Well the Doctor had actually told me earlier

that day that she wasn't getting any pulse
in my right foot and I had an eye stoke about

six months earlier and she said oh my god,
your arteries are hardening and this is why

she wanted to put me on the statins as well.
That night I could feel the blood flow tunnelling

through whatever blockages i was experiencing
in my right foot.

Then my eyesight started to get better during
the time I had actually managed to quit smoking

for a little bit
I haven't managed to conquer that one yet.

But boy I just felt so much better, probably
the thing that most people could identify

with in my story are the unexpected benefits
as so many of us have had other benefits I

had a garden where I worked that had about
700 petunia plants and I would squat every

year to plant these in and I wouldn't get
done with the planting before I was having

terrible lower back pains and sometimes I
would have to take a full minute just to stand

up straight.
That winter, I started sleeping inclined with

the bed head end up six inches and the feet
down. The following spring I planted 1300

petunia plants not one episode of back pain
at all. Ha ha

Its incredible
My mother who is now 81 this was a couple

of years ago that I started this and I was
talking to her about it and oh I think anybody

who has tried to become an inclined bed therapy
evangelist has run into this I mean, people

think I am a cook it's almost like I got a

Like you know so anyway that's ok because

the couple of people that have tried it and
benefited makes it all worth while and hearing

from people on this show also is really great
and I told my mother about this and so she

tried it and then as always all the benefits
are always preceded by a a little a little

discomfort like going to the gym and working
out. And then all of a sudden there's a benefit.

My mother was all set to put it back down
she was having pain in her back from this.

After about 6 days and on the 7th day she
came out of the shower in the morning sat

down to clip her toe nails and said oh my
goodness I was able to lift my left foot up

onto my right knee without having to use my

Ha ha ha

I haven't been able to do that in five years.
he he he

Now she is telling me that her balance is
increasing tremendously so now I am starting

to do my own offshoot quasi enthusiast research
which I am looking up, you know how blood

circulation affects the vestibular and there
is so many directions we can go in. Anyway,

I tend to be long winded and that's my story.,
Brilliant, thank you very much Donald

We didn't hear where does Donald live?

Oh I'm in New Haven Connecticut Terri.
Yeah another Yankee here

I'm in Ohio
Your in among friends, we have
a lot of American listeners and American hosts

and some are especially first nations people
so yeah way we look at Awake is that all races

cultures and religions we have all got to
come together and share this kinda knowledge

because certainly the powers that be we call
them certainly don't want us to be healthy

it would appear.
The government doesn't want us healthy.

Yeah, what it is, is a sickness industry,
if we are all well, they are out of business.

That's right
Did you say how long you had been doing the

therapy Donald?
Let's see I, when did I first contact you

Andrew about 2 years ago?
Yeah it's been about 2 years.

As a matter of fact yeah I only discovered
it recently Terri I couldn't believe that

when I discovered it about two and a half
years ago and Andrew had been working on it

since like the 1990's It's like oh my god
where have I been?

Yeah so anyway it's been about 2 and a half

I have been doing this since 1998 Don
Well it certainly seems that there is an initial

effects that can be quite a positive, obviously
over the long term you know you have got to

be patient with it I think.

The first two weeks can be problematic for
some people as Donald said it feels like you

have been working out in the gymnasium, your
muscles are aching, you can get a stiff neck,

I remember getting a stiff neck =, but I also
remember one of the days we took the lads

down to the beach and the lads had skate boards
and I had a bull terrier pulling them up and

down the beach and I was running in front
shouting the dog and the dog was a big powerful

dog pulling the lads at tremendous speed and
the dog was falling on the floor completely

done in and when I got back I said oh the
poor dog.

I remember Jude saying how come you are not
out of breath? Why have you done all of this

and you are not out of breath?
And another thing that we noticed as that

if we walked up the hill we would normally
ache and with bags filled with shopping we

would pull over and stop, but now we were
able to carry on without stopping so you know

that the benefits are quite remarkable.

David Baines 18 Years Inclined Bed Therapy with Arthritis of the spine and Keratitis (eye inflamation)

Video Testimonial:

David Baines reporting he no longer suffers with arthritis of the spine and hands after inclining his bed 18 years ago. He also reports improvement in keratitis, which is an inflamation of the eye.

Click here to start the video where David shares his experience with IBT

Transcript with David's video timings for ease of navigation:

I met Andrew around 1993 I think
I think it was a bout 1995 96

95 96 right Time flies
It does

So I am assuming that you have tried the inclined
bed therapy David?

Yes well when I first met Andrew he mentioned
about the inclined bed and all of his research

with trees and things like that and the circulation
of nature and I decided to must have been

95 96 to buy an inclined bed off him and within
a few months he was so generous him and his

wife drove 350 miles north up to where I lived
and delivered the bed.

I was very grateful at the time.
I still am because I have slept on that bed

ever since and it took a while of perseverance
to adjust myself to it and it certainly paid

Could I ask what benefits you have attained

from it?
Well prior to meeting Andrew I had been an

instrument engineer working off shore almost
24 hours 7 days a week

In fact it was the disaster of Piper Alpha
in 1989 that decided me to chuck my construction

boots in, but at the time I was suffering
of all the following medical conditions.

Keratitis, which is an irritation of the eye
which doctors did not know how to cure it.

Tinnitus which they couldn't treat at the
time. Deafness because I had been working

off shore in a very noisy environment and
I also had a prolapsed disc for about maybe

20 years before I met Andrew.
That produced sciatica and by the time I met

Andrew I had arthritis of the spine and also
my fingers I couldn't bear to pick anything

up. In fact I used to play the piano and I
couldn't bear to touch the notes with my fingers.

Since then, having persevered with the inclined
bed six inches which Andrew made, all of those

conditions have virtually gone.
To be quite truthful, I have never needed

to see any doctors or medical physicians since
2001 and since that day I have never taken

any medical prescriptions or anything like
that whatsoever. It has been a gradual process

within my body. You can't have an agenda when
you start laying on an inclined bed, you are

just wasting your own time having an agenda,
thinking that yes I am going to get better

tomorrow or the next week or cure all ills
and things like that.

You have got to maintain a good life and sleep
on this inclined bed. And if you can persevere

it's going to be well worth it.
Sure sure

And what do you think that healed David Andrew?
What would be your assumption of it?

Well, David is one case of many and over 20
years I have heard many many cases like David's.

It seems to identify that the flat bed was
actually the cause of many of the problems,

possibly as he mentioned working on the rigs
being very damp as we discussed early a very

damp climate will have a double whammy affect,
in fact many of the people that work in the

fishing an the boats and trawlers you see
them walking around in the harbour areas and

they are crippled up with severe problems
with the skeletal frame, arthritis, doubled

over and not a great job like David's job.
So if we have identified that the flat bed

could have been the cause and if we take the
flat bed out of the equation we should all

get better.
I am not saying it is a cure all for everyone

but I have had success with spinal cord injury,
Parkinson's multiple sclerosis, even a problem

with human fertility believe it or not.
Influenza, chicken pox, so it boosts the immune

system as well. We tend not to get as ill
as we did when we slept on a flat bed, you

know if you get Man-flu the man usually lays
down flat and gets very ill

Ha ha ha
The wife doesn't get man-flu because she is

too busy running around looking after the
husband, so they are always upright and they

tend not to get as ill as the men and in fact
if we go back to the sweating sickness it

was probably the men that died more-so than
the women.

Ha ha ha
Talking about man flu and colds, I can't remember

how many years it has been since I had such
an event

Well David thank you very much for chipping

Thank you

You are more than welcome my friend
For me it tends to recycle your body energies

down to your feet more efficiently no matter
what salts, no matter what chemicals you have

got in your body everything has to be emitted
from your body and from your feet eventually

and your toes
It seems to do what I have just explained

Well I suppose that
your circulation is your healing energy and
that if it is able to get to everything then

it's obviously going to heal.
Well without circulation we are dead.

Yeah yeah yeah
Fascinating fascinating

I will play devils advocate just for one second
David. Is there anything that you reckon may

have helped your healing process other than
the inclined bed therapy?

Well I have never drunk alcohol for about
four or five years now and never smoked. Well

put it this way I smoked when I was about
30 for about 4 years and then I knocked it

That's erm 45 years ago ha ha

So effectively all you have done is pretty
much maintained a healthy diet and inclined

bed therapy and that has been it?
In fact when I stopped working offshore I

was over 15 stone in weight and because of
all the good food that they supply to you

in the meals off shore. That 15 stones is
now slimmed down to about 11 and a half stones

in the last 20 odd years.
And I have just maintained that weight and

I enjoy my eating so it must be the bed.

Terri Harrison multiple sclerosis on Awake Radio


Use this link to start at Terri's Video Testimonial:


Transcript from Terri Harison's Testimonial 

Some subjects are not always the most interesting
but certainly for me this is an interesting

subject it is something that is very very
cheap and it's not going to cost you a great

deal of money and it's something as Andrew
said is repeatable and you know I think it's

well worth having a go to be honest.
So Andrew welcome back again and

Thank you Steven
And Terri as joined us from the good old US

of A which will please a lot of our listeners.
Hello everyone

So Terri would you like to give us a little
introduction to your inclined bed therapy?

I found the website talked about the inclined
bed therapy and I was new to multiple sclerosis

and I didn't take any medication yet for the
multiple sclerosis and I found this information

and I thought huh you want somebody to try
something new. I will be happy to try that.

Didn't involve any needles or pain or medication
and didn't cost me anything, yeah I was willing

to give it a try and I had pain in my left
thigh all of the time and I thought well Betty

Iams a nice woman though I have never met
her, she suggested this therapy and said it

worked for her so I would give it a try.
And I used some books underneath the frame

of my bed and I would just give it a try,
he said six inches higher than your feet,

Ok I can do maths, I can measure and so I
put the books under my bed and slept that

way one night and though huh the pain's gone
and my husband said I hate it so I said alight

I will take the books out again.
The pain came back.

I said the couch is out there I am sleeping
with the bed up and we have done it ever since.

And that was back in 1998
So I have been sleeping that way ever since

and my multiple sclerosis does not give me
any trouble, I have never taken any drugs

or anything injectable or anything cancer
causing. I never take any drugs just the inclined

bed has served me well since 1998.
That's a good record. I believe you had an

interesting conversation with your neurologist?
Yes, The neurologist recently told me that

you don't really need to come back to see
me again your better. I have never seen anyone

get better, it is not a disease that is supposed
to get better he said don't bother to come

back ha ha
ha ha ha ha Brilliant

I have never been happier to fire a doctor
in my life.

Brilliant brilliant
One thing I noticed with David and yourself

that has been sort of late 90's that you have
been doing inclined bed therapy so that's

quite some time
Hmm hmm

Did it take some time? How long did it take
for you to get a response or reaction with

it any idea?
I had mine immediately because I had the pain

and then it was gone and that is how multiple
sclerosis works it comes and goes but I had

instant relief from the pain in my leg and
I had no reason to think that this isn't working.

Brilliant Yeah
Since then I have had amalgams removed from

my teeth and my doctor not my neurologist
this is a different doctor who said I think

you have had mercury poisoning as well as
your multiple sclerosis so with the amalgams

removed from my teeth I think I have eliminated
mercury poisoning from my system. I still

have had no problems with multiple sclerosis
and I have tried sleeping flat on a vacation

when I couldn't sleep inclined and I hated
it, my husband said he hated it too and even

though he on one hand hates sliding down on
the bed on the other hand he can't sleep flat

now. ha ha
ha ha

He is a fireman so occasionally he has to
go to the fire-station to sleep and he don't

sleep good there, it's too much bother to
lift the bed up there.

Although we just use PVC pipe and put it under
the leg of the bed and that's how we raise

our bed, the book thing didn't really work
to well.

Yeah that's a great idea.

Depending on where we go my family have bricks
for me to use and that works for me if I at

their house I have bricks. Whatever, I have
gone on a mission trip to Trinidad and we

took pvc pipe on the trip to Trinidad and
I raised the bed there and had some rocks

to help put underneath it but the pvc pipe
seems to work really well.

Brilliant brilliant
It's easy to cut and you can make it whatever

length you want.
Yes that sounds a very simplistic way yeas

I am all about simple things and blood .
We have a question in the chat which refers

to the bed as well which clearly enjoyed you
mentioning about sliding down the bed and

said if the bed is tilted that much how does
one stay on it without sliding to the end?

My bed is tilted 4 inches and I have had constantly
to stop myself from going to the bottom of

the bed.
What you can do there is to wrap an old duvet

if you have a spare duvet or a blanket, wrap
it tightly around the mattress and then put

your top sheet on and that extra friction
that you get from the duvet or the blanket

prevents the slipping.
Very smart thinking that

Well these are some of the tips that many
people who have been helped have handed over.

My Granddaughter is three now, but since she
has been born she has had trouble with reflux,

acid reflux and the babies sleep is not fine
because all she was doing is crying.

And my Daughter is the one that did Andrew's
study and we tried to do the circulation thing

in the science fair thing and so my daughter
understands his theory and she was quick to

put a block or something under the crib to
make sure that she is inclined and that helped

her acid reflux tremendously.

And my husband also suffers from that acid
reflux disorder and we put our bed up, he

doesn't have that problem any more.
It is interesting, my great grandmother slept

with her bed inclined and I am guessing that
she had an acid problem and that it helped

her stomach. I was four years old I am 51
now. She was sleeping with her bed inclined

and we didn't know anything about Andrew's
study then so it must have been something

that people do.

Somewhere along the line, somebody had the
idea that we should sleep with the head of

our bed up so that out tummy's don't hurt.

Borderline Secondary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis Report on using Inclined Bed Therapy over 4 years

Borderline Secondary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis Report on using Inclined Bed Therapy over 4 years

Male diagnosed late 30's with Multiple sclerosis, although ms was suspected earlier as he had been exhibiting symptoms since late teens. His MS was progressing rapidly when he was finally diagnosed as "borderline Secondary Progressive" his future looked grim as he quickly became too disabled to work. Four years ago, after reading your theory about Inclined Bed Therapy, we raised the head of his bed 5 degrees. He had very little trouble adjusting to sleeping on this gentle slope. Within 48 hours he was able to sleep for longer periods of time because he was no longer being woken by the fruitless urge to urinate. Both his ability to urinate when necessary and control his bowels had become a major issue before his bed was inclined. After sleeping on an incline for a week, both urination and bowel issues had backed off considerably and currently, four years later, it's only an occasional problem.

His first MRI after sleeping on an incline for 7 months showed no new lesions, no increase in existing lesion size and a small increase in the loss of grey matter. The increase of his MS symptoms had begun to slow down. He has had 2 subsequent MRI's in the past three plus years all with the same results, no new lesions or increase in existing lesion's size and further small loss of grey matter. His MS is slowly progressing though and unfortunately he is slowly losing sexual function and is displaying more foot drop and stiffness in gate.

He'd been using Rebif until 10 months ago when his liver enzyme level rose. His last MRI was done six months after stopping Rebif. However we saw no discernible slow down in the progression of the disease until we inclined the head end of his bed by 7 inches. 

His neuropathic pain is less severe now than since he first started displaying MS symptoms. He only uses ibuprofen sparingly now. If his medications played a role in his erectile dysfunction, their side effects are now diminishing - so along with his increasingly healthy vascular system giving better blood flow, hopefully he may still re-gain that function. 

In answer to your question about neuropathic pain lessening on an Inclined Bed; although his pain is currently less there are other factors such as the drug and diet which could influence his pain levels. His pain was a symptom before he began Rebif, increased while taking Rebif and while he was using an IB. It didn't decrease until after Rebif was stopped.

 Since stopping the Interferon, detoxing his liver, eating a vascular healthy diet as well as continuing to sleep on the 5 degree incline, he uses minimal pain control, feels considerably better, his bad days are fewer and of less severity.  Two months ago he began taking a Curcumin supplement and now has a warm left hand with some sensation of feeling in his finger tips and visible veins in his chest, arms, and hands.

 Thank you so much for giving us the first concrete help in our battle with MS. We will forever be grateful for your theory and tenacity in getting out the message to the MS community.

Update 26th June 2015:

Our son is doing much the same as before although his latest MRI showed a small increase in a frontal lobe lesion. We expected some activity because his routine and life was turned upside down last summer when we moved to a small city.   Our son still sleeps at a 5% incline and is still free from the bladder and bowel problems that were such a daily struggle. He’s’ still able to walk albeit with a cane and for only 1/2 a block but he’s really happy to have mobility especially since they expected him to be in a chair long before now. Another surprise has been the visual emergence of veins in his left hand accompanied by a slight lessening of iciness; although his dexterity is about the same.
Thanks again for your campaign to promote the inclined bed theory. We believe our focus on vascular health beginning with an inclined bed, diet, exercise and stress reduction has slowed this runaway MS train down to a crawl.

IBT helps brain drainage in multiple sclerosis

 After 33 years of relapsing remitting MS, my wife was close to needing a wheel chair. She had nearly all the horrendous MS symptoms and they were getting worse quickly. Her Neuro felt she was becoming Progressive. Her world continually spun with no balance, falling frequently. Her hands and feet were numb. She had multiple attacks on her eyes with torn retinas and double vision. Super sensitive to temperature, we had to get air conditioning to maintain a steady temperature in the house. She had skin pain that no drugs would relieve. she had Cognitive dysfunction (brain fog) which was only made worse with many drugs. continual leg spasms were not controlled completely with Baclofen. she could not get enough sleep and was falling asleep while eating. Her mouth would not work and she forgot what she was saying half way through a sentence. By this time, I took early retirement to be her care giver. 

  Somewhere I read about inclining the bed to help with dizziness. Evelyn would get panic attacks the minute she laid down, and her world spun even more. She couldn't fall asleep because of this and the leg spasms. I lifted the bed 5.5 inches and she had an immediate improvement. The panic and dizziness didn't happen. She was able to sleep better, but her bad scoliosis back and hip pain kept her from getting good quality sleep. Having her head elevated certainly helped, but we needed to address the MS.

   We saw the W5 show in late 2010 in which Dr Zamboni described CCSVI (blocked veins in the neck and the azygos vein behind the heart). I was intrigued and followed the Internet as more and more clinics began doing angioplasty to open those veins and allow good blood flow and drainage of the brain. We had scans done and discovered Evelyn had those blockages. We went to Cabo, Mexico to get the angioplasty treatment. She had 4 blockages opened up. They provided mini videos of before and after each expansion of the veins. You could see the improved flow Instantly. Her cold legs and feet warmed up immediately. The dizziness left, her balance returned,  numbness left, the cog fog was reduced, her energy improved. She could stand without her cane. As we left the clinic, she began to sweat ... Something she had not dome for eleven years! All this within days of treatment. A few months later some numbness returned to her fingers. She had re stenosis a bit, so we returned to repeat the angioplasty. It worked again. Over the following 3 months we slowly weaned Ev from the many drugs she was on. Only after that could we be sure the symptoms were gone. As part of an MS study at UBC in Vancouver for 33 years, Ev saw her Neurologist annually for MRI's and testing the progression. Her Nero had been pessimistic, but was amazed at the changes. it's been 5 years now and all those symptoms have not returned. Her worst problem is an extreme scoliosis that causes back, hip, and leg pains. But we have our lives back and are so grateful! Ev is now back to her alert, smart, and charming self again. 

   We continue to have our bed inclined as Ev still gets light-headed when changing position from lying down or getting up. it happens less with our bed inclined. She takes BP drugs and I believe her flow is still a bit reduced through those veins, causing that light headed feeling.

   We hope our story helps others. We appreciate the efforts of those maintaining sites like this one. Sharing our experiences is educational and may change the lives of many.

Always on an Incline Oedema (fluid retention) Hemorrhoids

A couple of years ago I started having some Fluid issues, Swelling in my Foot. I Was Desperate for relief. I was Drinking Tumeric and Doing liver cleanses to relive the problem, however that was not working. I started searching for more healing possibilities. I literately Stumbled upon Inclined Bed Therapy By Accident. I immediately Inclined my bed. I have never slept flat again. I have had other side effects from the inclined bed therapy That I did not expect. I Had suffered from hemorrhoids for years and No longer have that problem any more. I used to Live with terrible hemorrhoid pain. Since I Started Inclined therapy I have had perhaps 2 or 3 Flare ups. in over 2 years! My Swelling Went down in my Foot, Hemorrhoids are not a problem any more. Personally, I will never Sleep flat again, And I always Suggest IBT To All people, Both Healthy and Not.

Multiple sclerosis 19 years IBT

I was one of the first volunteers to try IBT 19 years ago! Andrew was interested to see if sleeping at an angle could improve my MS symptoms. I was pleased to find that walking became easier, my blood circulation improved so that my feet were not too hot at nig ht time, the dexterity in my hands improved too.  I also found that my  bladder control was better, I only had to go to the bathroom once in the night. When I suffered from optic neuritis in my right eye my optician was surprised at how quickly my eyesight recovered. He contacted Andrew to discuss IBT.

Recently we have raised our bed to 8 inches to help my husband to control his acid reflux condition.  I have to admit I do slide down the bed more now.

I have noticed that my friends with MS tend to have swollen ankles and legs which is something that I have never suffered from.  I think I have IBT to thank for that.  After having had MS for 38 years I am still mobile, although I do need to push a walking aid for balance.  So I don't think I will go back to sleeping flat.

So simple yet so effetive, Congestion, Vivid dreaming, Waking refreshed,

Incline Bed Therapy has been such a positive influence on my health. I have been incline for nearly a year now.  Some of the benefits that I have observed are as follows…

• Deeper sleep and vivid dreams (I dream almost every night now)
• I now wake up feeling well rested instead of groggy.
• I no longer wake up feeling congested (I use to have a chronic blocked nose in the morning)
• I am slightly taller! By about half a cm. This could be from the spine stretching out during the night…. I’m nearly 30 and stopped growing a long time ago.
• Improved posture (Kundalini yoga and switching to a standing desk has also helped with this)

Some other things that have also contributed to a better sleep have been changing from a springed mattress to a futon mattress and also not eating after 8pm. It is my understanding that the body can either do one of two things while sleeping… heal or digest food. So if you eat late you’re inhibiting the healing process at night.

I will never… ever go back to sleeping flat. I actually now avoid any occasion where I can’t sleep in my own bed because I love it so much! If I go camping, I’ll also make sure that I find a slight incline to lay my sway down. It has been such a beautifully simple change but with so many health benefits.

Sharon Austin (Severely Fractured Spine)

“It was a lovely sunny blessed morning on the barge , until I had a freak accident and broke my back while travelling under a low bridge. 3 fire engines, 1 ambulance & a couple of army folk later and I'm tucked up drugged up & awaiting an opp in the morning. I totally believe in the power of prayer and intention so pls send love & healing to me & my family . Thank you Kit Kath, Cheryl & Jaz for looking after me today and to the lady that called the ambulance and everyone iv seen since , iv been made a right fuss of !

looking for prayers.”

 sharon fractured spine xray ibt 1

Just short of 7 months ago I wrote this message on Facebook roughly 7 hrs after my accident, here I am today sitting at my desk reading through the digital version of my journey (Facebook posts and messages). Earlier today I had an appointment with the Personal Trainer who has been overseeing my 13 week exercise program that I was referred to by my physio, both my physio and the personal trainer are happy to let me go and get on with the rest of my recovery unsupervised – quite an achievement after just short of 7 months.

So, I was at the gym 13 weeks ago , thats just 31/2 months after the accident! Granted I couldn't do a lot and I have had to build myself up very slowly but I was fit and well enough, and determined enough to get my fitness and mobility back. Since that time I have been attending the gym once a week to do a small amount or cardio and weight work, I have also been doing hydrotherapy and an exercise program in the water and over the past few weeks I have been to yoga, pilates and aqua aerobics, as well as some swimming ( no more than 4 lengths) and my favourite achievement from the past week is jogging!!! Iv actually jogged – only about 20 steps but until now I havent been able to do the action needed to jog plus there i

s a lot of discomfort in my lower back as it now has 2 metal rods in there.

Why am I sharing this with you? Because along with healing and prayers that I know have helped me recover – and walk again- I didnt mention that my surgeon told me they dont usually see people with my injuries that can walk again ( he told me this a few months ago, not at the time of the operation) As a result of the accident and the injury to my spine a friend connected me with Andrew Fletcher and Inclined Bed Therapy, I watched this interview “Science of Healing Sleep” and Inclined the bed ASAP to aid my recovery, 11 days after leaving hospital I was sleeping on an incline and will continue to do so. I havent broken my back before or experienced anything similar so I have no personal comparisons as to how my recovery could have been but I know IBT has helped and sped up my rehabilitation, Doctors, Surgeons, Physios and personal trainers are all well pleased with my recovery, some more openly amazed than others, I was informed by one professional it wouldnt be unusual for me to be using aids to walk, or even to be still afraid to get up and walk. So it is for this reason I share my experience, IBT can help with many many ailments series and irritating including snoring or the inconvenience of having to get up in the night to use the toilet- IBT could save a marriage, please look at the info Andrew has put together for us and share with your family, friends and neighbours. This has cost me the time to research – which Andrew has collated and the cost of a couple of breeze blocks to raise the bed, can you afford not to help your body help you?!

Better Sleep, Better Bladder Control

I've inclined my bed by 6 inches (150mm) and can't believe what a difference its made to my sleeping. I used to awake a minimum of 3 times a night to visit the loo, but no more. Until I started this 5 days ago I couldn't remember the last time I slept for more than 2 hours, but now I sleep for 6 hours straight! Thank you!
