Is 5in. beneficial, I will surely raise it another inch if you think best.
Hi Lynn, 5 inch incline is ok, but 6 inch incline is better. It makes no difference what kind of injury a person has sustained, be it by surgery or by accident. IBT accelerates the healing process by supporting the circulation. A few weeks ago I fell on some logs and severely bruised my hip. Like all normal people, I decided to photograph the bruising to show how effective IBT is at aiding the body to recover. Within a week the bruising had almost completely gone. https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.545557478800744.1073741835.535014706521688&type=3
IBT has been helping people with ms long before CCSVI was considered to be responsible in some way for ms. 1995 was the first time IBT was tested fro pwms in a pilot study, the results from which were incredible, two ladies with supposedly irreversible optic nerve damage through long term progressive ms, both regained their sight and both ophthalmologists wrote to me asking how putting blocks under someones bed could restore their sight.
This new paper is proof about how gravity positively affects cerebrospinal fluid circulation. I was shouting this from the roof tops in 1995 but I guess I was not loud enough. The literature states erroneously that gravity cannot affect circulation either negatively or positively because it affects both the ascending limb and descending limb of the circulation equally. This has now been proven to be wrong!
Everyone with ms should be concerned about sleeping flat, given this peer reviewed published evidence. The author has replied and has positively embraced the fact that a downflow will induce a return flow and that there is no need to consider brownian motion for the return flow of csf.
Now all we have to do is get the biologists, physicists and fluid mechanics to agree that they have been barking up the wrong tree.
