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.

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.
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.
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?
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.
If You can relate to any of these questions, you need to watch this video.
Inclined Bed Therapy (IBT) can be a life changing experience even when all else has failed.
Are you in the habit of visiting the bathroom many times during the night?
Does your child wet the bed?
Do You wake up each morning feeling worse than before you got into bed?
Do you believe that the bed you sleep in is healing you while you sleep?
Have you woken up with paralysis that wasn't there the night before?
Do you experience sleep paralysis?
Do you or your partner snore loudly?
Do you have diabetes?

If you answer yes to any of these questions, you need to watch this video
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.
Have we forgotten this original oath?
I Swear by Apollo,Asciepius, Hygieia, and Panacea, and I take to witness all the gods, all the goddesses, to keep according to my ability and my judgment, the following Oath--
Miracle of medicine
ON THE MEND: John Cann is standing again Pictures: Steve Porter
JUST by raising their beds with a few blocks of wood, or some house bricks, scores of spinal injury sufferers say that they have noticed a dramatic improvement in their conditions. But how can such a simple method seem to succeed where conventional medicine has failed Chief reporter ANTHONY ABBOTT looks at the apparent phenomenon of the Naturesway Sleep System:
DELIGHTED John Cann is standing on his own two feet again after eight years of paralysis in his legs and he is convinced its all down to a simple bed treatment.
John had no feeling in his legs for eight years after an operation went wrong, but following two years of treatment using a raised bed method pioneered in the West Country, he has got the feelings back in his legs and now is determined to walk.
The 69-year-old is amazed at the effect the simple treatment has had over the past two years and has urged other people to try it for themselves.
I raised the bed and that night I had no pain at all, he said. I had been going until about three in the morning and then had to have an injection to get back to sleep.
Now I make a point of standing up with my standing frame every day while I watch the news in the evenings to build up my strength. I never give up and now I have set myself the next aim to go for. I am going to walk unaided. I may need cr-utches and then sticks, but I am going to walk again.
Former engineer Andrew Fletcher, who invented the Naturesway Sleep System six years ago, said that he was astonished when he visited John at his home in Gunnislake to see him standing.
He says that many people have benefitted from the simple treatment of raising the head of their beds a few inches, but in the case of John it had been very dramatic.
It was just incredible, said Andrew. I was nearly in tears. Here was a man who was told there was nothing that could be done for him; had felt nothing for eight years and then in the last two years has got feeling back in his legs.

Voice Audio of Inclined Bed Therapy Article in "July/August 2010" issue of New Pathways Magazine
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.
|MEDICAL BREAKTHROUGH: Andrew Fletcher's bed treatment will now be fully investigated. Picture: Steve Porter|
|Ministers pledge on bed project
HEALTH ministers have pledged to look into the benefits of a simple bed treatment, pioneered by a West Country man, which is having a dramatic effect on spinal injury and multiple sclerosis sufferers,writes ANTHONY ABBOTT.
It marks a real breakthrough in Andrew Fletcher's five-year battle to gain official recognition for the Naturesway Sleep System that appears to be succeeding where conventional medicine has failed.
Thanks to the backing of Torbay MP Adrian Sanders, Andrew, who lives in Torquay, has received a letter from the Parliamentary Under Secretary of State at the Department of Health, Lord Philip Hunt, saying officials will examine the benefits of the gravity bed.
The Minister said that the Government was always interested in developments that might lead to improved care for patients.
Andrew said: 'This is long overdue. It is absolutely incredible to me to think that there is something here that doesn't cost anything and I can't understand for the life of me why everyone isn't doing it.'
First revealed in theSunday Independentthree years ago, the Naturesway Sleep System involves raising the bed a few inches with blocks of wood or ordinary house bricks.
The discovery followed several experiments by Andrew who found there was a circuit which made water carrying salt and nutrients flow upwards. He wondered how gravity and the flow of water would affect the human body.
Andrew set up a controlled study on the Internet and scores of sufferers around the world found their condition improved with the treatment.Original Article:
