Retinal Detachment with "Macula Off"

Nearly eight weeks ago my younger brother Graham, early fifties, phoned me with some distressing news that he had been diagnosed with a seriously detached retina and that his macula had also detached. He was facing an uncertain future and was looking for advice and reassurance. Being a glass half full personality he was struggling to contain all the questions arising from this situation. Was his future as a lecturer in doubt now? What about his ability to drive? You get the sense of worry he was going through. Huge uncertainty had entered his life and therefore that of his family's

future security.


With hindsight a bizarre incident while on holiday 5 weeks earlier, sliding down a water slide into a large swimming pool had led to the water pushing into his eye in such a way as to produce a seconds long trauma that had probably started this process. The water had held his right eyelids open while water pushed into his eye as he moved into and through the water of the pool. He was disoriented for a full ten minutes before he could leave the pool. Yet as is the nature of these events, you recover and move on not realising that adverse events are in motion.


He had experienced a lifting black veil and flashing lights several days earlier, but not realising the seriousness of these symptoms had waited another day and a half before seeking help. The result of this delay had made things worse and the delay was enough for his macula to detach, worsening his prognosis.


He was also singing the praises of the NHS who had recognised his need for urgent treatment, and performed a vitrectomy, whereby a small hole is made in his eye wall through which the vitreous gel is removed and in his case replaced with a long lasting gas bubble to hold the detached retina and macula in place. This will be slowly absorbed by the eye over the next two months or so. The final outcome is most likely months in the future as your body needs to heal and regrow the attachments that have been damaged, reform new blood vessels and restore their function, all of this is dependent on a continuous circulation to deliver the oxygen necessary for energy metabolism.


Thankfully Graham was already a veteran of sleeping inclined, but it is interesting to note that both he and his wife immediately felt that they should revert back to horizontal sleeping because the patient needs to “posture” their head position, looking down and where possible sleeping face down in order that the gas bubble keeps holding the retina and macula in position. No this is wrong, your circulation is paramount and sleeping at 90 degrees or 85 degrees from the vertical won't compromise the gas bubble and it's ability to hold the retina and macula, but sleeping flat negates our circulation and forces it to tick over as gravity is effectively “switched off”.


As I tell people about Andrew's ideas I always emphasise that circulation is gravity first, our heart's action secondary to this. The heart is helical in nature and spinning the blood into a vortex. This is such an eloquent method of moving a fluid. Then taking into account the relative humidity, we have a neat yet thorough explanation of bodily circulation and our blood transport system in action.


So I advised Graham to focus on optimising his circulation, removing all or nearly all the added sugar from his diet in order to lower his levels of glycation (HbA1C). Additionally to replace some of the starchy carbohydrates in his diet with more fats, saturated fats wherever possible. Diabetes has shown us that our eyesight is reliant on a continuous supply of oxygen, which in turn requires the red blood cells to pass through the eye's blood vessels in single file and be flexible enough to fold upon themselves if required. Doctors are always wary when a patient is diabetic and worry about their eyesight.

 Glycation is defined as the bonding of a sugar molecule to a protein or lipid molecule without enzymatic regulation. Try to imagine two red blood cells in the shape of a dumbbell held together by a glucose molecule. This is too big to pass through the eye's vessels and deliver the necessary oxygen. So in short improve his glycation rates, increase his antioxidant levels using lypospheric vitamin C supplement alongside good amounts of krill oil and a B complex vitamin capsule to support his healing. In addition I gave him an electrolyser with instructions to breath hydrogen for 25 minutes per day, most days as time allowed.

 His half glass empty anxiety came to a head yesterday, (November 2019) as he was back at Manchester Eye Hospital to see his consultant. His pupils had been dilated, as clear images had been taken of both his eyes and then analysed by the consultant's software taking measurements to try to create 3D information for the doctor. The consultant was amazed at the outcome, a delightful result, the eye test and the images confirmed a remarkable healing of Graham's macula and retina and that a minor cataract of his lens would soon be resolved leaving Graham with easily correctable eyesight through the wearing of spectacles. Macula off and yet this image after 52 days is remarkable. Just a few black dots on the edge of the macula and a perfect retina.

 It is really lovely and such a nice feeling to say to Andrew that his ideas and my trust in them, has helped my brother move on from this event.

Our circulation is paramount to everything and something as simple as sleeping inclined can be so profound.

Brushfield's spots Speckle in Eye Vanished in 7 months of IBT

 Here is a little story about my wife Tracey, she had been diagnosed approximately a year ago by an optician with a speckle in the eye, here is a brief on what it is.

Iris, speckled: Due to little white (or lightly coloured) spots that are slightly elevated on the surface of the iris. These spots, arranged in a ring concentric with the pupil, occur normally, but more frequently, in Down syndrome (trisomy 21). They were described in 1924 by Thomas Brushfield, are called Brushfield's spots, and are due to aggregation of a normal iris element (connective tissue).

On Monday 24th July 2017 Tracey had an eye appointment, and guess what......the speckle in her eye had gone....her eye prescription had improved....and she did not need distance glasses anymore just reading glasses. This simple process of raising the bed amazes me all the time. I have a lot of work colleagues doing this now, and my friend Scott’s wife has said she will never go back to a flat bed now, as she sleeps so well.

Great Stuff!

my wife was diagnosed about June July last year, we raised the bed approx January, and she was retested July, so about 6 to 7 months, but it could have been sooner, told another 8 passengers tonight in work about IBT and you, so it is getting around. Keep Safe.




Shocked. Glaucoma Gone Vision now 100%

Hi all, have inclined our bed and the results are as follows, we have had some good results, my wifes veins have sucked in a bit, we have no aches when getting up in the morning, we both dont snore as much, my wifes feet are looking a bit better {her feet are minging, dry skin and bad flakey nails} my cough that I have had since October has gone so helps with the lungs, and I had onset Glaucoma but in has gone too, the pressures in my eyes were 24 and 26, anything 22 and over is a red alert, they have now decreased to 14 and 16 and my field of vision test has gone from 62% to 100%. I was so pleased I burst out laughing and told my optician what I had done, and she stated that studies have shown that wearing tight collars and ties can contribute to Glaucoma causing head pressure so raising the bed was quite feasible.

Also my sister does not have to get up in the night to pee no more and gets a full nights sleep, she has never ever had a full nights sleep previously. Will get back to you all if any our things happen.

Diabetes retinopathy (Bleeding retinas)

i have type I diabetes. I’ve had it for 49 years. I have had many laser surgeries on my retinas due to diabetic retinopathy. About 4 years ago I started IBT and I have had no more bleeds in my retinas since then. Very brilliant idea!

A fellow caregiver answered...

I have suffered Congestive heart failure and COPD and have diabetes type2. Recently I developed extreme back pains because of kidney stones. My doctors also discovered that I have a Gr.2 enlarged prostate.. After hearing from some of my friends the value of INCLINED BED THERAPY, I tried it and I was totally relieved of back pains, my blood sugar and prostate became normal, and have total restful nights of quality sleep free from any breathing difficulty. I find this technique discovered in 2006 so amazing and I want to share this blessing with everyone.




Age 90 Diabetes Helped Without Drugs Ulcer healed, neuropathy gone

I am a caregiver for a 90 year old man who HAD Diabetes. It went like this: The bed goes up, his sugar readings would go down. When he'd protest and we'd have to put the bed down, his sugar readings would go up. After a year and a half of up and dow
n with the bed, he finally insisted on keeping the bed up/ inclined ... and so did his frustrated children. His sugar is normal. No meds. Happy Camper. ALL thanks to our hero, Andrew K Fletcher!!!

He and his family refused to listen to the data on IBT. Eventurally they were convinced. He had a terrible Diabetic ulcer on his back side that healed quickly and nicely, as did his diabetic neuropathy. And his M.D., took him off his metaforin, as well as all his other meds, as "he doesn't need them anymore."

In addition he followed a very strict NO OIL Vegan diet with lots of Freshly made green juice. Also drinks half his weight in ounces of water. daily.

Emotion & trauma

Hi All

 I just wanted to say I have only been doing this for a few days and already I feel an emotional feeling I have carried for many many years is leaving me.I feel so much lighter as a person.I had dreams of a healer helping me release an energy,although its not complete the awareness was given to me

Truly amazing, I speculate it must be shifting my energy and relieving past trauma

Any thoughts greatly appreciated



Emotions and Trauma 

I have just started with IBT this (3 nights) week, I have been sleeping heavily and unable to get out of bed. The other thing I have noticed is an emotional block/behaviour starting to lessen. I saw Greg's post about emotions and wanted to see has anyone noticed positive changes regarding past trauma's/fears?

 The truth is simple!

IBT Definitely Works! depression, sciatica, restless legs syndrome,

I'd just like to share my very positive experience with IBT so that others may benefit from it too. I was a bit sceptical at first, but thought I'd give it a try, raising the bed with books (!) just to see. I slept so much better, my restless leg syndrome and the sciatica in my left leg which used to wake me up several times in the night just seemed to disappear, and I woke up happy and refreshed. I was hooked. To cut a long story short, I had a couple of bed raisers made by a local carpenter (you can't buy them here in Egypt) with a groove to fit the bed legs into. Perhaps the best outcome of all - and I don't know if anyone else has experienced the same thing - is that I seem to be in a constant good mood whereas I used to suffer from occasional bouts of severe depression. I don't know whether it's just sleeping better, or whether it's the IBT itself, perhaps Andrew could give us an answer on that one, but whichever it is, I'm truly grateful.

Interestingly, when I told my sister about it (expecting her to scoff at the idea), it turned out that her family doctor had advised her to use IBT years ago for her husband's acid reflux and it worked wonders. I'd never noticed her bed was raised!
