Inclined Bed TherapyÂ (IBT)Â
Sleeping Inclined To Restore and Support Your Health For Free
Fascinating Science, Discovery, History and Medical Research In Circulation And Posture, by Andrew K Fletcher
Andrew Fletcher Â “20 years ago I made a phenomenal discovery in circulation and how gravity acts upon fluid density changes that take place in all fluids where water is evaporated. In trees (Where this theory began) evaporation from the leaves alters the density of sap. In the body, the warm lungs and airways provide the same density changes in the blood and other fluids. It was not long before it became obvious that posture was incredibly more important than anyone could imagine. To make use of these density changes and allow them to assist the circulation all we needed to do was to manage our posture.
This was a Eureka moment of such magnitude it went off the scale for me and instantly gave birth to Inclined Bed Therapy.”
Below is my testimonial from the IBT website
â€śIt was a lovely sunny blessed morning on the barge , until I had a freak accident and broke my back while travelling under a low bridge. 3 fire engines, 1 ambulance & a couple of army folk later and I’m tucked up drugged up & awaiting an opp in the morning. I totally believe in the power of prayer and intention so pls send love & healing to me & my family . Thank you Kit & Kath, Cheryl & Jaz for looking after me today and to the lady that called the ambulance and everyone iv seen since , iv been made a right fuss of !
looking for prayers.â€ť
Just short of 7 months ago I wrote this message on Facebook roughly 7 hrs after my accident, here I am today sitting at my desk reading through the digital version of my journey (Facebook posts and messages). Earlier today I had an appointment with the Personal Trainer who has been overseeing my 13 week exercise program that I was referred to by my physio, both my physio and the personal trainer are happy to let me go and get on with the rest of my recovery unsupervised â€“ quite an achievement after just short of 7 months.
So, I was at the gym 13 weeks ago , that’s just 31/2 months after the accident! Granted I couldn’t do a lot and I have had to build myself up very slowly but I was fit and well enough, and determined enough to get my fitness and mobility back. Since that time I have been attending the gym once a week to do a small amount or cardio and weight work, I have also been doing hydrotherapy and an exercise program in the water and over the past few weeks I have been to yoga, pilates and aqua aerobics, as well as some swimming ( no more than 4 lengths) and my favourite achievement from the past week is jogging!!! Iv actually jogged â€“ only about 20 steps but until now I haven’t been able to do the action needed to jog plus there is a lot of discomfort in my lower back as it now has 2 metal rods in there.
Why am I sharing this with you? Because along with healing and prayers that I know have helped me recover â€“ and walk again- I didn’t mention that my surgeon told me they don’t usually see people with my injuries that can walk again ( he told me this a few months ago, not at the time of the operation) As a result of the accident and the injury to my spine a friend connected me with Andrew Fletcher and Inclined Bed Therapy, I watched this interview â€śScience of Healing Sleepâ€ť and the bed was inclined ASAP to aid my recovery, 11 days after leaving hospital I was sleeping on an incline and will continue to do so. I haven’t broken my back before or experienced anything similar so I have no personal comparisons as to how my recovery could have been but I know IBT has helped and sped up my rehabilitation, Doctors, Surgeons, Physios and personal trainers are all well pleased with my recovery, some more openly amazed than others, I was informed by one professional it wouldn’t be unusual for me to be using aids to walk, or even to be still afraid to get up and walk. So it is for this reason I share my experience, IBT can help with many many ailments series and irritating including snoring or the inconvenience of having to get up in the night to use the toilet- IBT could save a marriage, please look at the info Andrew has put together for us and share with your family, friends and neighbours. This has cost me the time to research â€“ which Andrew has collated and the cost of a couple of breeze blocks to raise the bed, can you afford not to help your body help you?!
