You saved my life adrew! Thank you. Im a 29 M from Canada and I had a heart condition that was steadily getting worse. I've used your bed incline therapy and and with in the first two nights I've noticed a dramatic change for the better, and actually feel like I will live to see my kids grow up, before this I always slept on the floor with no pillow and now I realise why I had bad breathing heart conditions and everything else. Im also thinking about chairs now and if the 90 degree is good for posture or not. Thank you Andrew you are an amazing person

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


1:07:34.450,1:07:38.540
So Donald how has inclined bed therapy done
for you?

1:07:38.540,1:07:47.359
Oh it's done really well Andrew and I am actually
lying on my inclined sofa watching my computer.

1:07:47.359,1:07:55.310
I won't give this incline up for anything.
So Steve you would ask people how they have

1:07:55.310,1:08:05.500
gotten on to this thing? Yeah I was trying
to do the exact opposite of what Andrew suggested,

1:08:05.500,1:08:13.500
I had been to the doctor a couple of years
ago and she told me that I was, or she thought

1:08:13.500,1:08:21.460
I was getting heart disease or atherosclerosis
and wanted to put me on the medications that

1:08:21.460,1:08:24.670
are going around for that. I didn't want any
part of that.

1:08:24.670,1:08:31.180
So I had remembered I had rented a home one
time where the bed was actually inclined at

1:08:31.180,1:08:36.339
the foot end by a couple of inches and I thought
I was getting some relief from that, so I

1:08:36.339,1:08:41.009
went on the internet to see if something like
that would help me. The unfortunate thing

1:08:41.009,1:08:45.210
about doing research on the internet is that
I can find anything to corroborate any theory

1:08:45.210,1:08:48.060
I can come up with
That's true

1:08:48.060,1:08:54.480
So I tried to discipline myself to find anything
that corroborates the opposite, so I bumped

1:08:54.480,1:09:00.020
into some of the stuff Andrew had written
up talking about how we are supposed to sleep

1:09:00.020,1:09:05.080
the exact opposite way and I thought oh what
is this and I started to read into it and

1:09:05.080,1:09:09.609
I was like oh my goodness this guy has really
gone into a lot of detail so I had read the

1:09:09.609,1:09:16.380
recommendations to raise the head end of my
bed starting out with a few inches, well I

1:09:16.380,1:09:21.069
couldn't wait, I think I inclined about 4
inches and before bed time I already had it

1:09:21.069,1:09:23.870
up to six or 7"
Ha ha ha

1:09:23.870,1:09:25.279
That's where you belong
Yeah

1:09:25.279,1:09:30.810
ha ha ha Thanks
Well the Doctor had actually told me earlier

1:09:30.810,1:09:37.870
that day that she wasn't getting any pulse
in my right foot and I had an eye stoke about

1:09:37.870,1:09:44.150
six months earlier and she said oh my god,
your arteries are hardening and this is why

1:09:44.150,1:09:51.650
she wanted to put me on the statins as well.
That night I could feel the blood flow tunnelling

1:09:51.650,1:09:55.180
through whatever blockages i was experiencing
in my right foot.

1:09:55.180,1:10:02.130
Then my eyesight started to get better during
the time I had actually managed to quit smoking

1:10:02.130,1:10:06.130
for a little bit
I haven't managed to conquer that one yet.

1:10:06.130,1:10:13.210
But boy I just felt so much better, probably
the thing that most people could identify

1:10:13.210,1:10:19.780
with in my story are the unexpected benefits
as so many of us have had other benefits I

1:10:19.780,1:10:25.590
had a garden where I worked that had about
700 petunia plants and I would squat every

1:10:25.590,1:10:29.770
year to plant these in and I wouldn't get
done with the planting before I was having

1:10:29.770,1:10:34.840
terrible lower back pains and sometimes I
would have to take a full minute just to stand

1:10:34.840,1:10:42.770
up straight.
That winter, I started sleeping inclined with

1:10:42.770,1:10:50.550
the bed head end up six inches and the feet
down. The following spring I planted 1300

1:10:50.550,1:10:58.330
petunia plants not one episode of back pain
at all. Ha ha

1:10:58.330,1:11:08.980
Its incredible
My mother who is now 81 this was a couple

1:11:08.980,1:11:14.510
of years ago that I started this and I was
talking to her about it and oh I think anybody

1:11:14.510,1:11:20.110
who has tried to become an inclined bed therapy
evangelist has run into this I mean, people

1:11:20.110,1:11:24.420
think I am a cook it's almost like I got a
reputation

1:11:24.420,1:11:29.699
Yeah
Like you know so anyway that's ok because

1:11:29.699,1:11:34.610
the couple of people that have tried it and
benefited makes it all worth while and hearing

1:11:34.610,1:11:44.020
from people on this show also is really great
and I told my mother about this and so she

1:11:44.020,1:11:51.280
tried it and then as always all the benefits
are always preceded by a a little a little

1:11:51.280,1:11:55.920
discomfort like going to the gym and working
out. And then all of a sudden there's a benefit.

1:11:55.920,1:12:01.040
My mother was all set to put it back down
she was having pain in her back from this.

1:12:01.040,1:12:07.219
After about 6 days and on the 7th day she
came out of the shower in the morning sat

1:12:07.219,1:12:11.199
down to clip her toe nails and said oh my
goodness I was able to lift my left foot up

1:12:11.199,1:12:14.320
onto my right knee without having to use my
hands.

1:12:14.320,1:12:15.210
Ha ha ha
Wow

1:12:15.210,1:12:19.750
I haven't been able to do that in five years.
he he he

1:12:19.750,1:12:27.350
Now she is telling me that her balance is
increasing tremendously so now I am starting

1:12:27.350,1:12:33.710
to do my own offshoot quasi enthusiast research
which I am looking up, you know how blood

1:12:33.710,1:12:37.660
circulation affects the vestibular and there
is so many directions we can go in. Anyway,

1:12:37.660,1:12:46.310
I tend to be long winded and that's my story.,
Brilliant, thank you very much Donald

1:12:46.310,1:12:50.780
Sure
We didn't hear where does Donald live?

1:12:50.780,1:12:56.489
Oh I'm in New Haven Connecticut Terri.
Yeah another Yankee here

1:12:56.489,1:13:09.110
I'm in Ohio
Your in among friends, we have
a lot of American listeners and American hosts

1:13:09.110,1:13:16.340
and some are especially first nations people
so yeah way we look at Awake is that all races

1:13:16.340,1:13:21.530
cultures and religions we have all got to
come together and share this kinda knowledge

1:13:21.530,1:13:27.260
because certainly the powers that be we call
them certainly don't want us to be healthy

1:13:27.260,1:13:34.080
it would appear.
The government doesn't want us healthy.

1:13:34.080,1:13:42.370
Yeah, what it is, is a sickness industry,
if we are all well, they are out of business.

1:13:42.370,1:13:45.670
That's right
Did you say how long you had been doing the

1:13:45.670,1:13:50.870
therapy Donald?
Let's see I, when did I first contact you

1:13:50.870,1:13:54.860
Andrew about 2 years ago?
Yeah it's been about 2 years.

1:13:54.860,1:14:00.330
As a matter of fact yeah I only discovered
it recently Terri I couldn't believe that

1:14:00.330,1:14:06.440
when I discovered it about two and a half
years ago and Andrew had been working on it

1:14:06.440,1:14:12.540
since like the 1990's It's like oh my god
where have I been?

1:14:12.540,1:14:14.540
Yeah so anyway it's been about 2 and a half
years.

1:14:14.540,1:14:25.170
I have been doing this since 1998 Don
Well it certainly seems that there is an initial

1:14:25.170,1:14:32.180
effects that can be quite a positive, obviously
over the long term you know you have got to

1:14:32.180,1:14:35.360
be patient with it I think.
Yes

1:14:35.360,1:14:41.310
The first two weeks can be problematic for
some people as Donald said it feels like you

1:14:41.310,1:14:47.030
have been working out in the gymnasium, your
muscles are aching, you can get a stiff neck,

1:14:47.030,1:14:56.199
I remember getting a stiff neck =, but I also
remember one of the days we took the lads

1:14:56.199,1:15:03.090
down to the beach and the lads had skate boards
and I had a bull terrier pulling them up and

1:15:03.090,1:15:12.770
down the beach and I was running in front
shouting the dog and the dog was a big powerful

1:15:12.770,1:15:18.230
dog pulling the lads at tremendous speed and
the dog was falling on the floor completely

1:15:18.230,1:15:22.460
done in and when I got back I said oh the
poor dog.

1:15:22.460,1:15:28.500
I remember Jude saying how come you are not
out of breath? Why have you done all of this

1:15:28.500,1:15:32.840
and you are not out of breath?
And another thing that we noticed as that

1:15:32.840,1:15:37.880
if we walked up the hill we would normally
ache and with bags filled with shopping we

1:15:37.880,1:15:44.070
would pull over and stop, but now we were
able to carry on without stopping so you know

1:15:44.070,1:15:49.070
that the benefits are quite remarkable.
Yeah

no
