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.
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.
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
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.
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
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
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.
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
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.
Click to hear Terri talking about other people she has helped
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.
