Thread: Inclined Bed Therapy (IBT) How is everyone?

  1. #1

    Inclined Bed Therapy (IBT) How is everyone?

    It's been a while since Inclined Bed Therapy was introduced to this forum and thought it is a good time to ask for progress updates from those of us using IBT.

    A new page on Facebook has stimulated some very interesting results and I hear from new people testing IBT almost every day with the same predictable positive results.

    For those of you who have not yet heard about what IBT is and has already achieved for people with multiple sclerosis.

    Inclined Bed Therapy has been shown to improve health and wellbeing of the many who have tried.
    It's simple! raise the head of your bed by 6 inches and sleep on it!

    Inclined bed therapy is where one's bed is raised 6 to 8 inches at the head by using bricks, wedges, or blocks to raise it (even books). This can have a positive effect on your health and help with many disorders including:- Spinal cord injury, Multiple Sclerosis, back pain, Circulatory problems, acid reflux or GERD, sinus and respiratory disorders, sleep apnea, low metabolism, edema in the legs, and many others.

    Its free to try for everyone. Feel free to tell your friends and families. Inclined Bed Therapy has brought a new lease of life to thousands and it can help you!

    Inclined Bed Therapy should only be used as part of a healthy lifestyle. A healthy lifestyle includes following a healthy diet, maintaining a healthy weight, and being physically active.

    You can find us on http://facebook.com/inclinedbedtherapy where you can share experiences, ask questions and learn more about how this simple non-invasive FREE therapy can help you and your family.

    My C-6 son used the incline bed for 12+ months with no noticable changes in anything.

    The development of the sensory structures and their neural pathways to the Central Nervous System (CNS) is probably controlled by both genetic instructions and by environmental cues. It is not known, however, to what extent either genetic instruction or environmental stimuli actually have on the physical developments of the neural pathways. Likewise, the relative importance of environmental stimuli on correct neural connectivity patterns during maturity is still unknown.

    Dr. Horn's Experiment

    Dr. Horn's experiment is to examine the influence of environment, specifically gravity, on the functional development of sensory organs and their neural pathway connections to the CNS.
    Dr. Horn chose crickets (Acheta domesticus) for observation because, compared to humans, they have an increased rate of development. Furthermore, crickets possess a complex gravity sensory system which includes gravity sensors (cerci) on their legs and tail. The cerci are hair-like cells, which if damaged, can regenerate. Located next to the gravity sensors is a sensory system which the cricket uses to detect air currents. Although the sensory receptors of these two systems are located very close together, each has its own specific synapses (connections) with different sets of neural pathways that carry the information to the CNS. By studying crickets that develop or mature in the microgravity environment of space and comparing them to crickets that mature simultaneously in the presence of gravity, Dr. Horn expects to gain information on the relative importance of environmental stimuli versus genetic instructions during neural pathway development, as well as the subsequent efficiency of the neural circuitry in relaying information.



    Inclined bed therapy provides the environmental stimuli for nerves to regenerate by maintaining the correct direction of gravity. When we sleep flat, we cancel out the influence on gravity and I believe that nerves require this stimuli much the same as plant shoots need gravity in order to thrive.


    Shooter, how is your son's bed titled and to what degree / elevation?

    Exposure to moderate hypergravity improves the regenerative capacity of sectioned guinea-pig facial nerve. The improvement in regeneration is tri-directional as follows: a) an average 1.7 fold increase in rate of regeneration in guinea pigs subjected to hypergravity; b) a 25% enhancement of facial muscle activity following the exposure to hypergravity; and c) improvement in the quality of regeneration from an esthetic standpoint. A good correlation was recorded between the histological structure of the severed nerve at the end of the regeneration and the clinical results.

    From an interview with Insight on YouTube:

    "Andrew Fletcher has no medical background."

    "Andrew Fletcher has largely failed to convince the medical profession."

    "Sales of his sloping bed have been sluggish and the former boiler maker has fought a constant battle to be taken seriously."

    You can talk about crickets and guinea pigs all day long, but if there are no legitimate human double blind studies, there's simply no proof.

    Hey Andrew, I notice you are claiming on your details to be a scientist, Medical Researcher, Engineer, Inventor. What exactly are your qualifications?

    First of all , he is not asking for money , try it , no harm done ! Why have people become so cynical? It does not cost any money , u can raise the bed by putting a couple of bricks , or books or whatever. And since when have scientists delivered all the time !

    We sleep with the head elevated about 30 degrees every night. What positive health effects are supposed to be realized??? We just do it because Chad prefers it that way, he can reach his straw to drink water and he can see the TV (he goes to sleep later than me). But we certainly have not noticed any positive health effects.

    It's mainly supposed to help with MS, as far as I know. A few years ago, it was discovered that people with MS often have malformations in the jugular and/or azygos veins in the neck which drain blood from the brain; pooled or sluggish blood drainage is believed to allow mineral deposits to accumulate and penetrate the lining of the vein, causing damage to adjacent nerves. The condition is known as chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency (CCSVI), and some people with MS claim that elevating the head of the bed lessens symptoms by allowing blood from the brain to drain more efficiently.
