Inclined Bed test

Discuss herbal therapies, vitamins and minerals, bee stings, etc. here

Respiratory infection makes sense and fits with I.T.

Ok, got the gist of the antibiotic therapy now. Respiratory infection would inhibit our ability to exhale fluids from the lungs into the surrounding atmosphere. Logical.

Antibiotics would remove the infection again common sense. But could having a reduced lung surface to air interface caused by a build up of mucus alter the way the nervous system operates? Well according to the density change theory this makes perfect sense, especially when the infection spreads or originates in the sinus cavities. and given that Inclined Therapy is advised by doctors for people with decreasing respiratory function, tilting the bed should make more sense to you than anyone else.

While most of the discussion has been dealing with the circulation in the veins and arteries, let us consider what is driving the cerebrospinal fluid for a moment. We know it is not the heart, we know also from the literature it is related to respiration and posture! So what is the driving force that causes the circulation in the nervous system?

If posture and respiration is important, ad it clearly is according to the literature, then why would sleeping flat assist circulation that depends both on respiration and posture?

Actually it's about bacteria in your brain that has escaped your lungs via monocytes. There is a very potential tie into the vascular concerns - atherosclerosis for example. Google "atherosclerosis chlamydia pnuemoniae" for fun and see if there are any hits.

As Ken thought but politely refrained from saying, you haven't quite got the gist yet.

I didn't have a lung or sinus infection but twenty year old multiple sclerosis: no trouble with respiration or posture. I also dislike being talked to as though I am still in prep school.

Andrew, you cause me no concern, you just sound like a teacher who thinks he must know best and only ever gives his own evidence:

Interesting stuff on this thread.... I've been active on the CCSVI forum as well, and that's where I first learned of the Inclined Bed Therapy. Whereas I did "feel" more refreshed upon waking in the morning, my feet ended up going numb after about a week. I made the decision to stick little while longer, and ended up experiencing such a sharp pain that I had difficulties walking first thing in the morning. I decided to stop based on that. Needless to say, at this point it's safe to say it may have been coincidental, but this sure feels like disease activity. I wonder if it has to do with what vein is affected; my guess is yes... In any event, my bed is flat, my feet are numb, and my fingers are crossed!! Come on (CCSVI) research!!
