1. Getting used to sleeping on an incline.
2. Getting in and out of an inclined bed.
3. Lighter sleep
4. Aching like you have done lots of exercise
5. stiff neck and aching joints
6. Aching back due to traction, hence the need to get used to it on a lower incline.
7. Where there is an oedema problem, increased initial urination frequency as the body pulls the fluids back from the tissue into the Venus return and out through the bladder.
8. Detox on IBT can cause some dizziness while the salts and metals stored in the body are moved through the circulation and migrate towards the bladder. This is the principle behind IBT. Solutes (dissolved substances) alter the circulation and change pressures in vessels.
9. Some initial short term increase in oedema showing around the ankles, again generally due to an established pre IBT problem.
10. Fear of the unknown or apprehension.
11. Partner reluctant to continue sleeping on an inclined bed.
12. Lots of people saying you must be bonkers to expect sleeping on an inclined bed will do anything.
Long term use:
1. Increased spasm prior to some nerve restoration
2. sharp stabbing / shooting / electrical pains moving around, usually in legs, feet, hands and arms. Again prior to some recovery and indicating some nerve pathways are opening up.
3. muscles aching and becoming denser and stronger.
4. Some people have discovered tooth decay below the gum line, where the nerves were not producing the signals of pain back to the brain, find they suddenly begin to fire up.
5. sweating, again possibly due to detox and partly due to increased circulation.
7. You become an Inclined Bed Therapy Messenger and spend many hours of many days trying to convince others to follow your example and get frustrated by people dismissing it out of hand.
