Osteoporosis, Suppurating scar, Sight improvements, Ear discharge on IBT
Ruby, 2nd April 98

Over two years ago I sat in the armchair reading a small advert which asked people to raise their bed by six inches at the head and to reply and tell what benefits had been noted. (No explanation was given)
At the time I could not move my neck to my left or right side and it ached continuously. I was unable to sleep at night as i could not get comfortable. I was only able to turn by gently easing myself. It took about three to four turns. Getting out of bed was a major obstacle. I needed help to dress and undress.

I spent most of my nights in the chair with the result that I was always tired and had no energy.

My problem is osteoporosis of the upper and lower spine. I had tried hormone replacement therapy and wasted a small fortune with bone specialists and osteopaths.

I was resigned to living my days out as best I could, having been told that there was nothing more that could be done for me.

I expected nothing but had nothing to lose, so Harry raised the bed by six inches. We did not take it very seriously but were happy to try anything.

On the fourth night I had the first full nights sleep since I don't remember when. By the end of the week I was sleeping naturally and turning over with ease. My dressing was a problem no longer, each day it became easier. I was able to turn my head without pain, right or left, to see the clock without getting up from my chair.

There have been many other benefits too. I have worn glasses from the age of seven years and I am now sixty eight years. Last year was the first time I was told that there was a small improvement.
My hair appears thicker, my hair brush needs cleaning less often.

Harry had a large suppurating scar since he was six years old. He has had to continually dressed it all of his life. But now it has healed up. His ear which constantly gave him trouble with a discharge has now cleared up completely.

We both feel that the clock has been put back for us! I give thanks for this invention and wish Andrew every success in the future for the benefits he has given us and will continue to do so.

Yours truly,



This letter was sent to me in the knowledge that it would be used to help others to follow. Ruby to this day enjoys the continued benefits of this simple intervention.

Aches Pains in Joints Soreness in lower back 1 night of IBT

October 3, 2014 @ 4:53 am Kimmy

One Radio Network ORN Listeners Write to Patrick about their experiences using Inclined Bed Therapy.

I listened to an earlier show, writes Kimmmy with Andrew Fletcher and his Inclined Bed Therapy
I slept well, but I began waking most mornings with aches and pains in the joints. Soreness in lower back and neck. This has been going on for some weeks, so I got my husband to set up the bed head on six inches blocks of wood from 27th June 2014. Immediately the next morning I woke up with no joint pain at all and from 28th June to this day I have not been troubled by any pain after sleeping in the inclined position and my husband is snoring less and not as noisily. Thanks to Andrew and Patrick.

Penny Meredith Has Psoriatic Arthritis
Read her Reported Improvements From Using Inclined Bed Therapy (IBT) Feature in Woman's Realm Magazine March 3rd 1998
Keep Your Head Up

How angling your bed can improve your health
Three years ago, if anyone had suggested to Penny Meredith that something as simple as propping up the head of her bed could radically improve her quality of life, she wouldn't have believed them. However, today 54-year-old Penny is a firm believer in the practice. Penny, a divorcee from Paignton, Devon, with three grown-up children, has had psoriasis since the age of 18. When she was in her early 30s, she developed psoriatic arthropathy, a painful arthritic condition. 'As time progressed, the pain and stiffness grew worse,' remembers Penny, who runs a guest house. 'I took painkillers and anti-inflammatory drugs which took the edge off the pain, but they upset my stomach, so I preferred to do without them if I could. Then, about eight years ago, my condition deteriorated considerably.
'I also work as an auxiliary nurse, which can be quite physical, and it got to the point where I was so stiff, I thought I'd have to give up. It was very depressing.' Then, in October 1995, a visitor to Penny's guest house told her about an inventor he'd met called Andrew Fletcher, who was achieving amazing improvements in people's health, just by raising the head of their beds a few
inches. Penny contacted him and asked him to visit.
He explained his theory by saying that, by lying flat, we're not making use of gravity -the force that powers our vital bodily functions. By raising the head of the bed six inches, so that the entire body is tilted, the circulation and the metabolic rate are speeded up and fluid flows naturally through the body. Andrew had conducted _____ experiments
involving about 300 people with various health problems, from varicose veins to multiple sclerosis. In almost every case, sleeping at an angle improved their symptoms.
'What Andrew was saying made sense to me,' says Penny. That night I propped the head of my bed up with two house bricks. Next day, I had no pain at all and was able to move normally for the first time in years.'
Penny continues to be pain-free and mobile, and is so impressed by what angled sleep has done for her that she's bought an angled bed, made by Oasis Concepts.
'I won't risk going back to the way I was,' she says. 'In fact, if I stay at someone else's house I prop up the head of my bed with books or phone directories - anything to get that tilt!'  Penny is now pain free.

Degenerated Hip and Back Arthritis



Osteoarthritis, back and hip pains

I love Inclined Bed Therapy too. I started doing it January 1st and besides sleeping great each night I notice my dreams are more vivid and memorable which could also mean my brain is having an easier time restoring itself due to gravity and blood flow. Maybe that might help prevent Alzheimers in the long run.I used to wake up on a flat bed with shoulder, back and hip pains, but those have been steadily diminishing, and at this rate I think I just may regain my ability to run again. This experience suggests that it could help so many with back and osteo-arthritic problems, and certainly Dr. Mercola should do an article on it. We know too much sitting is bad and sleep is good, but sleeping flat and then waking up feeling pained and cramped in your joints is bad too, and I am happy I stumbled upon this better way.


The mattress industry just wants to sell you a new $2,000 mattress each year, but all you really need is two bed raisers, or books to raise your bed about five or six inches. I think the pull of gravity when sleeping on an incline also keeps the bowels from stagnating, and blood circulation flowing freely to every cell of the body. In short, Inclined Bed Therapy is probably the most important thing I have I have learned in probably my whole life, and I think it could help many people, and cure many problems that people have, and make their nights restful and restorative too, and I thank you for your post, and hope Dr. Mercola writes some articles on it in the future.

Arthritis and age related health

You may remember meeting us last September in Brixham. You commented on the discolouration of her ankles. At the same time I was suffering badly with my right hip and had great difficulty getting in and out of my car/bed/ walking due to pain.
We raised our bed as recommended and since then I have found a massive improvement in walking etc. I still get some pain at times but I am much more mobile. My wife's ankles are improved but still a bit blotchy.
We will continue to keep the bed raised and hope for continued improvement.I feel reasonably fit but expect some discomfort at nearly 80 years old.
Thank you for your advice.

Best Decision Ever

Tilting the bed was one of the best decisions I've made in my (long) life.  At the age of 70 I have aches and pains, athritis and a few other physical issues.  Pain has been an every day companion but since I tilted the bed a couple of weeks ago the aches and pain has lessened a great deal and I sleep better than ever.  I expect it to get better when time passes.  If in two weeks I've made such progress what will happen after a few months!  Thank you so much Andrew - you ought to be recognized far wider than what has been happening until now!!!
