Six Months on a lifetime journey

Andrew’s website and information made an immediate impact on myself.  I have a background in physiology and his ideas on gravity are novel, important and as is obvious, a rediscovery of how we should all be sleeping.  In recent times the Egyptians got there first, but no doubt they were helped by others, as knowledge and experience are cyclical, not linear as we in the West tend to fixate on.

Sadly Andrew’s ideas have not been accepted with open arms as we are living through an age of corporate pharmacy, but in our house they were very welcome.

So Saturday 17th February 2018 was our first night of sleeping inclined, but being impulsive I had raised our bed by 6 inches and by 3.30am my wife had stormed out of our bedroom, declaring she couldn’t sleep like this.  Duly chastened, I persuaded her to try again, if I lowered it to 3 inches.  We both loved this new sleeping position and over time have increased the height and angle back to nearly 5 degrees, 6 inches.  We also sleep inclined when away from home and wouldn’t have it any other way.

I’m currently 58, and my wife is 51.  I have been a sufferer of mild #plaquepsoriasis, mainly on my legs for about 8 years.  Looking at others, my own case was very mild, but nonetheless I prefered to keep my legs covered.  Now after being taught by my wife to close my eyes and gently feel the skin on my legs with my hands, I am 95% improved and virtually clear of any lesions.  This is very pleasing and a testimony to the truth of Andrew’s ideas.  Further I always feel well rested and have attracted some positive comments on my #posture.  

I feel healthy and will now stay inclined for the rest of my life and look forward to an active older age without any undue worry.

Additionally I love telling others about these ideas and pointing people to the IBT site, but with mixed response.  I have a lovely story developing from an 89 year old family friend and his wife, but will expand on this in due course.  My wife and I personally inclined their bed, a two part divan about 6 weeks ago, to an initial 4 inches.  

My wife is interesting as well.  After settling into this way of sleeping she is enjoying things but has a few observations along the way.  She used to experience a #headache maybe 2 or 3 times a week and would wake up and take a paracetamol to help her sleep.  These headaches rapidly disappeared never to return.  She is also starting her #menopause and was experiencing #hotflushes, but these are now very mild and generally she seems very well and not mentioning any severe symptoms.  She is also becoming a night owl and has added an hour onto the end of her day, and now comes to bed around midnight, previously she would need to sleep by eleven o’clock.  So seven and a half hours is enough if she can have longer on a weekend.

Thank you Andrew for all your time and effort over the years, love from us both.

Psoriasis Improvements using Inclined Bed Therapy

Hi, You good people, this is for the record, sharing this might benefit some. I will keep this short…an observation of mine: I have been experiencing the symptoms of psoriasis since my late 20s…sudden all over body outbreak that never went, i am now 40 years old. Over the years I trialled most of the known and unknown “remedies”; nutritional, pharmaceutical and lifestyle changes. Of all, only a beachlife in the tropics or the therapy with fumaric-acid esters was promising. The latter posed the issue of expenses, acquisition issues in Australia and side effects.
To make the story short: Since May this year , when I came across this website and reports about the potential correlation between psoriasis and IBT, I am sleeping on an inclined bed (5 degree angle). Now at the end of October/ the Australian winter (where the issue should be worst due to lack of sun exposure) the skin returned back to normal. 5 months of gradual disappearance of the skin lesions. Additional, I would like to note that in 15 years this never happened before/spontaneous. I put it down to the inclined bed, the alteration in lymph/blood flow.

Psoriasis improvements and chest/back problems disappearing.

I think IBT is actually starting to eradicate my Psoriasis and debilitating chest problems (which I think are spine related), but I only recently thought this may be the case, because I had forgot completely that I was even doing IBT at all, and in fact for the last month I have been racking my brains to see what else I have been doing over the last few months that could explain the Psoriasis fading, and the chest problems becoming less frequent. 


The penny finally dropped only when I recently stumbled upon one of your interviews by Clive de Carle, and I heard you mention it helps Psoriasis.  I have been doing IBT correctly since the end of April this year, but only really noticed improvements in my general well being over the last 2 months, so it has taken a while to have a profound effect on me.


From here on down this will be a long post as I am going to try to explain where I am coming from in terms of health, and how I think IBT is the real reason my health is showing such great improvements, and not all the other things I started last year.


In January 2014 my health took a dive for the worst.  My main problem was seriously debilitating Psoriasis.  I decided against the medications (steroids) being offered despite the pain and terrible itching, and instead completely changed my terrible lifestyle from eating junk foods, to eating good wholesome organic foods along with many vitamins and mineral supplements.   

I listen to the Patrick Timpone shows on a regular basis so anyone familiar with that great show and others like it, will understand the many different things I have tried.


Over the course of 12 months I must have spent a few thousand pounds of my savings on implementing new lifestyle changes, doing all sorts of things including drinking distilled water, fasting, juicing, urine therapy (yes you read that right), organic sulphur, iodine, tons of supplements, various natural creams, salt baths galore, drinking aloe vera juice, high vitamin C and vitamin D intake, and many more things.  I even tried a few spiritual things like Reiki healing.


Many of my Psoriasis problems became a lot better by doing all these things, and in fact I pretty much solved the itching problem to a large degree.  However, it was still relentless in spreading to all parts of my body, and while not as severe as it was initially, it just kept on spreading.  


My lower torso was pretty much covered in angry scab-like eruptions.  It spread to my scalp in a big way too, and my face was terribly affected that I simply could no longer socialize with anyone - I was even uneasy with my own family despite how supportive they were.  Depression would hit me constantly and everyone who has Psoriasis will know everything I am talking about.

A year later in January 2015 I was still having problems with my psoriasis, in that it was still relentlessly spreading to new areas.  Then my debilitating chest "attack" problems started to get really bad, in that when an attack comes on I experience terrible crushing pain in the chest that radiates into the back, my breathing becomes labored and I find myself having to breathe very shallowly, and this usually lasts 3-4 hours when it starts.


My chest problem became so bad it actually made me forget my Psoriasis problems completely, while I was forced to focus on what was causing these chest attacks.  I had entertained IBT in December 2014 but never took it seriously enough, and only used a 3-foot long board to raise myself barely few inches from the floor.  It probably would have done my lower back worse than good thinking back now.


Anyway, by around April this year my savings were gone and since then I have not be able buy anything in the way of supplements, or creams.  All I really do besides take the odd dose of my dwindling Iodine and Vitamin D supplies, is eat mostly vegetables and eggs - things which I already had been doing since last year.


On 27th April 2015 I listened to another interview with Andrews about IBT, and I promptly raised my bed properly by a full 6 inches and achieved an angle of 4.57 degrees.  This time I used one of my bedroom doors as a board to rest my mattress on, and using thick books I managed to raise my double bed mattress very stably, and it covers the entire length too - something I never did before.  

I still had no idea at that time it would do anything for my Psoriasis, and I only did IBT to help with my circulation and lymph waste elimination - something I now think is a vital reason IBT works.


The last chest attack I experienced was 2 months ago in July, which up until then was almost a weekly occurrence.  Its been getting easier to sleep too, especially over the last month.  Before this whenever I went to bed I was in constant discomfort lying on my sides, with pains that if I was not careful would bring about a full-blown chest attack.  


I only noticed in the last month that my Psoriasis lesions are almost all faded away, and my body is close to 80% clear.  Earlier in the year there were terrible scabs on my lower torso and one in particular never healed, always seeping a clear liquid really angry - it is now completely gone with only a white patch of skin to show the space it once occupied.


It has taken me easily a month to realize that it might indeed be the IBT that is making the difference, because its the only thing that I have been doing differently that I did not do last year.  Its probably taken 3 months to produce any noticable effects but now its 5 months in and I am finally sleeping like a baby, and the Psoriasis on my scalp (the worst place on my body) is finally starting to show good improvement too.  In the past I would spend most of my days picking the white crusts from my scalp, but thankfully this is now something that I no longer need to do, as they are almost gone.


I discovered last week that my chest/rib attacks may be caused by "referred pain" coming from my back, and so I actually have a back problem and not really a chest problem at all.  From what I only recently learned of IBT, it aids back problems very well indeed and makes perfect sense why it would do so.  Dr John Bergman is a popular Chiropractor on youtube and he states that the discs need to be lubricated to regenerate, and I think IBT would do this easily be gently stretching the spine during sleep.  If I do indeed have a spine issue causing my severe chest pains, then IBT is the only reason I can think of why I have not had an attack in two months, and in my case its simply taken a little over 3 months for IBT to work for me.


This then is the long-winded account of my health and how I have dealt with it over the last year.  IBT is the only thing that can be improving my chest/back problem, and eradicating my Psoriasis, simply because its the only thing I didn't do properly until the end of April this year.  I simply forgot that I was doing IBT at all for the past 5 months, not only because sleeping on a raised bed became so normal, but also because I didn't even regard it as a therapy at all at that time.  I now see that its most likely the only true factor in my recuperation that is making a difference at all, simply because its the only thing I am doing that I didn't do before.


In fact its very possible that many changes were happening from week 1 but it took me months to notice simply because I had forgotten I was doing IBT.  I only noticed changes 3 months into it but didn't attribute this to IBT, and in all likelyhood the changes may well have happened much earlier than this.  I have kept a health diary since March 2014 and will consult that to see if I had noticed changes in my Psoriasis soon after April 2015 when I started IBT.

Powerful information, compelling results Psoriasis 95% Healed

I'm a newcomer to IBT, but wanted to relate what a difference it has made so far.


I raised the head of my bed about 4 weeks ago after hearing Andrew's original visit on the One Radio Network Archives. The story and research were so compelling, I wasted no time. These are the things I've noticed already:


1. I no longer have to get up 2-3 times per night to use the bathroom.  Now maybe once, but usually none.


2. My ankles and legs are slimmer now because circulation is moving edema out.  Also, my face and chin line don't have that early morning "bloat".


3. My varicose veins appear to be less prominent in my legs.


4. My post nasal drip (all my life) has virtually disappeared.


5.  My low back and joints aren't stiff for 2 hours in the morning.  I feel limber and good the very moment I get out of bed.  Before the IBT, I always had trouble sleeping because no matter which side I slept on, my hips would ache.  By the end of the first week, my hips no longer ached at night.


6.  I've had a persistent case of psoriasis on my lower leg for over 2 years.  Nothing worked in healing the itch or removing the ugly red patch of dry skin.  In just 3 or 4 weeks, it has healed 95%.  It is hardly visible and the itch and ugly skin is gone.  Also, the skin on my legs has been severely dry for over a decade, and now the intense dryness has subsided.
