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 inclinedbedtherapy.com
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
Did you say your husband is trying it?
Is that David?
Yes it is
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
