Since raising my bed 6 inches I've rid myself of varicose veins, sleep better, and have more energy. I'm also experimenting with earthing and that seems to be a good addition, although I've made my own earthing mats, and the comfort aspect needs attention! Altogether, Hard to tell as I've recently added a new Type 2 Diabetes med, but my sugar levels are now around 5,6,7 instead of 10, 12. 15. Having BPH (benign prostate hyperplasia) means I have to get up hourly and sometimes half hourly. Getting back to sleep is no longer a problem. Thank goodness for Andrew and anecdotal versus scientific justification. Try it and see if it works for yourself, but don't rely on Big Pharma who try to block this site with BIG RED danger warnings from Norton Security. Norton downloaded themselves on my computer and tried to dissuade me from visiting Inclined Bed Therapy!
At my regular monthly massage my therapist said "Did you photograph your varicose veins prior to your new IBT treatment? Unfortunately, no. Didn't think of it.
You see, I had very bad varicose veins in my right leg, and reading the IBT site, I decided to give it a go, as it's free and very easy. Varicose vein stripping/ removal costs between $1000 and up to $4000 PER treatment, and several may be needed. I'm always experimenting, not doing much, but like to discover things for myself. Even in painting, I don't paint pictures any more, rather experiment and play with colour. Well, this 'dude'-Andrew K Fletcher, engineer- studied trees, and the mechanism by which sap rises and falls and applied it to the recumbent human body by experiment. In his experiment you can see how blood flows in a vein, and it all makes very good sense.
I tend to do things by averages. Bought a door and made a triangular frame and put that onto the bed base. The base has wheels and propping one end just made it roll, it was a bit too soft anyway! Just measured it and it actually works out at 6".
Now, to digress, varicose vein surgery is a multi-million dollar industry and they don't like their fee-base being eroded, they need sick people, healthy ones are no profit and useless to them. And as a result, a free cure for circulatory ills is diabolical and iniquitous to the industry. Call it conspiracy theory if you like, but when Norton Security download surreptitiously on to my -personal and private- computer and start censoring my searches, I feel it has gone too far. If you want free medical treatment for many circulatory problems, try raising the head of your bed a few inches! Herewith follows an excerpt from a medical site ...."Varicose veins aren't just a cosmetic problem. They can also cause a fair amount of pain and discomfort on a daily basis, with some of the more persistent symptoms including swelling, throbbing and leg cramps. Serious complications can develop over time too, such as phlebitis (vein inflammation), blood clots, dermatitis and painful vein ulcers that, in extreme cases, can lead to amputation."
Comment from Andrew
Norton has since removed my site from their so called Safe Search Warning and accepted they had false flagged it. Mcaffe are still trying to block my site and not responded to my reports. It does make me suspicious that Pharma is using these programmes to dissuade people from viewing them.
