Diabetes type 1 and Inclined Bed Therapy
Had some good news yesterday from a lady who became type 1 diabetic after being given huge doses of steroids without anyone informing what they were administering, why they where giving it and what potential damage they can cause. Her pancreas had completely failed the day after and produced no insulin. She was told it would not recover and for four years since they were looking to be correct about her prognosis. She is in her late sixties.
Recently she has been noticing that she needs less and less insulin and most of the time needs none at all.
During a check up a few days ago, a doctor has advised her that her pancreas has begun to produce insulin again and that she will most likely not have to take it at all for much longer. Most of the time she takes a blood reading it is normal and she takes no insulin, sometimes 2 or 3 units. Before she took 15 to 20 units and more. Now that's a result worthy of a study
There is a disturbing move towards assisted deaths amongst politicians and the medical health industry. Assisted Suicide may be a choice for some, but "Assisted Life" is by far the better alternative!
Assisted death is and always has been practiced with the Liverpool Pathway (Slowly killing a person by not giving that patient food or water) And the removal of pillows to lay a person flat, which accelerates death in patients who according to the administrators are beyond hope. These practices are often spoken of but seldom can be found written in literature.
I have wittnessed the removal of pillows from a patient who was terminally ill, by nurses several years ago and death followed within minutes.
Instead of injecting lethal chemicals into patients shouldn't we first try injecting some common sense into our Health Care?
If placing a patient flat can accelerate their death, should we be doing something about all of the patients who are cared for on flat beds?
Inclined Bed Therapy (IBT) has been shown to help restore a patients health when all "conventional help" has failed. Many irreversible and serious medical conditions have positively responded to avoiding sleeping on a flat bed, something that many people do every night and will never think to question how safe sleeping on a flat bed is until it's detrimental de-conditioning effects are felt.

Andrew K Fletcher aged 53 is an inventor from a mechanical engineering background who applied density changes in sap from evaporation at the leaves of trees to show how a downward gravity flow can induce a returned less dense flow back to the leaves. He applied the same logic to the circulation of all fluids in the body and has researched a radical new approach to medical conditions including MS, “by thinking outside the box”. His new postural approach to illnesses is called “Inclined Bed Therapy” (I.B.T) this is where people raise their beds starting at 4 inches raising after a few weeks 6 to 8 inches at the “head end” aiming for an angle of around 5 degrees. Andrew Explains Why.
When Harry Met Andrew
Inclined Bed Therapy for children with Brachytelephalangic Chondrodysplasia Punctata
I was invited to meet Harry age 14 by his father to hear from his son how sleeping on an inclined bed raised six inches at the head end has transformed his life in a year.
Our meeting took place at a local pub. Dad was waiting for me outside and immediately phoned his wife to bring Harry along. I had heard that this lad was articulate and very intelligent, despite his very rare and debilitating medical condition. I had already spoken with his dad on several occasions, before and during IBT.
Harry's first positive gain from using Inclined Bed therapy (IBT) reported by his Father was that he had stopped wetting the bed and that he was very proud of this achievement which gave him a huge confidence boost.
Harry walked into the bar and walked towards us. Dad said this is Andrew, the man who asked us to tilt your bed. Harry shook my hand and said thank you for helping me and we sat down for what turned out to be a conversation I will remember for the rest of my life.

Andrew K. Fletcher -- The Phenomenal Health Benefits of Inclined Bed Therapy -- June 23, 2014
THE MORNING SHOW with Patrick Timpone
-Andrew and Patrick invite our listeners to try inclined bed therapy and report on their experiences to us. We will have Andrew back on the show at summer's end: http://oneradionetwork.com/health/andrew-k-fletcher-phenomenal-health-benefits-inclined-bed-therapy-june-23-2014/
The video contains an explanation of perhaps the most important discovery in circulation since science began. It begins by explaining how gravity drives the circulation in trees and plants and quickly moves on to explain how gravity has no respect for the vessel that contains this flow and return system, explaining how it fits with human circulation and how simply tilting a bed by raising it 6 inches / 15 cm or more, higher at the head end will have a profound affect on a whole range of medical conditions curently thought to be irreversible. The literature states erroneously that gravity does not play a roll in circulation because it acts equally on the ascending and descending sides . Massive blunder. My son suggested I send this in to you and ask you to view it. I have been working on this discovery for 20 years now helping as many people that will listen as possible. Sadly many people have been conditioned to accept the advice of doctors, who believe that everything in their manuals is irrefutable. Science however tells us that nothing is set in stone and progress happens in the most unlikely corners.

John Cann Who Has a Spinal Cord Injury Walks after 11 Years Of Paralysis on Carlton Television News
Inclined Bed Therapy (IBT) has helped many more people with spinal cord injuries since this video was first shown on the local News. But it is not specific to Spinal cord injuries and has helped people with multiple sclerosis, ccsvi, parkinson's disease, cerebral palsy, psoriasis,varicose veins, oedema,leg ulcer, poor circulation, and many more conditions during 17 years of research.
On the forum, you will find evidence to support this statement from people who have simply tilted their beds.
John was left paralysed, in 1990, when surgery to his spine went wrong. He was told that after two years any chance of further recovery would be highly unlikely and for the next six years he experienced little if any change in his condition.
Inclined Bed Therapy - IBT - My Experience
Deanna has suffered with ruptured vertebrae and excruciating pain since she injured her back. IBT has helped Deanna recover her health and life.
Transcript from Deanna's video:>
This is Deanna Castro here, I want to tell you about this amazing thing that I have found, called Inclined Bed Therapy.
A man named Andrew K Fletcher, he invented it, he discovered it. And what it is is that you raise the head of your bed six inches and with that all kinds of things are healed.
I have seven disks that are bulging, three in my neck and four in my back.
And a man in a wheelchair who couldn't walk and who was told he would never walk again is up and walking.
So I figured if Inclined Bed Therapy or (IBT) could do that for him, what would it do for me?
And I have been doing it for 4 nights now and I have noticed a lot, my skin is clearer
There is oh my neck feels so much better.
As I move throughout the day, my neck has been gently popping and it feels really good.
I am more rested, I am having more dreams, not necessarily bad ones, just dreams and when I do lay flat, I laid on the floor the other day and I noticed that my chest was super heavy and my heart had to work so much harder.
Suitable Blocks / Bed Raisers for Inclined Bed Therapy
These strong plastic cone shaped bed / furniture raisers / risers are excellent for tilting the bed for Inclined Bed Therapy. They are supplied in a box of 4 so you have a spare set for when you are travelling or staying with family and friends.
Although they measure slightly less than six inches it is not crytical to be exact and as most bed legs are set slightly in from the edge of the bed, the angle is within the range. If additional height is required, the risers can be placed on to another board or book.
They pack inside each other and are fairly lightweight so can easily fit inside a flight bag or suitcase and do not take up much room considering they are hollow.
Far easier to install than wooden blocks and inexpensive. Check Ebay for a bargain.
The blocks should measure 6 inches minimum from base to top as shown.
If you need to raise your bed higher, then simply put one cone inside the other and this will add 1-2 more inches depending where your bed legs are situated.
Sandra is 60 years young and has suffered severe pain, swelling and repeat surgeries on a damaged knee since she was hit by a motorcycle aged 13. When Sandra walked, you could see the pain on her face, she had a pronounced limp, causing her to lean forwards. She frequently collapsed when her affected knee gave way. She was diagnosed with arthritis, which added to her mobility problems. Simply walking on level ground has been a challenge and as we all know our age only makes our problems much worse, or does it?
This video was created to illustrate how a wooden framed bed can be easily converted for inclined bed therapy at very little cost and effort.
It took approximately 5 hours to convert our Kingsize Pine bed.
We purchased a solid used bed from Ebay for £150.00 and purchased one piece of timber from the local builders / timber yard for the conversion for £11.00.
If you or your partner are comfortable with DIY, this guide should provide you with sufficient details to modify your own bed for inclined bed therapy or IBT as it is now known by many thousands of people throughout the world.
Chances are, You are probably watching this video because you already know about my exciting discovery and research into posture health and circulation, and have probably asked the question about how your own bed can be modified to permanently accommodate sleeping on five degree head up angle.
If You can relate to any of these questions, you need to watch this video.
