Hi Sharon. The most important point of IBT is that the whole bed slopes from head to toe. It is not going to have anywhere near the same effect tilting half of the bed and having your legs either flat or raised, as is the case with adjustable beds. It is very interesting that both yourself and your ...

IBT for MS

It really is great that people on the forum want to test IBT, and I very much appreciate your help. However, let's not miss an opportunity to study what else is happening to people trying Inclined Bed Therapy. It’s best to begin by writing down everything you can about your current medical situation...

Cheerleader. Thanks for your words of encouragement regarding the forum. You are correct about the problem with finding people willing to invest even a small amount of capital to test IBT. It won't happen unless a champion can be found, even though any funding for such a trial would be minuscule, do...

Re: Inclined Bed Therapy Experiences

Ok I did misunderstand your post about when you noticed the vein and now agree it is not as important as I first thought. On placebo for IBT however, your argument has several problems to overcome. 1. It must explain how placebo can cause heart rate in both dogs and humans to decrease by 10-12 beats...

Re: Inclined Bed Therapy Experiences

Your mentioning a swollen vein at the time you experienced your first bout of MS is something a controlled study could not be used for. But it is a question that could be asked to a large number of people with MS to provide some interesting stats that would be very useful. The salt flow I mentioned ...

Inclined Bed Therapy Experiences

Cure that is exactly what I would be looking for to make a VV connection with MS. Thank you so much for that. I would like if possible to ask your members if they would consider putting IBT to the test? Would it be possible to add another Forum module so as not to disrupt the flow of the forum? The ...

Thank you Cheerleader I did follow Dr. Franz A. Schelling after reading Zamboni's paper, though admittedly briefly. A long long time ago I wrote my first attempt to explain why tilting a bed was having such a profound effect on people with multiple sclerosis and other neurological conditions. My Pap...

Thank you RE: Your commencing IBT. Do you have a start date? 1. Have you noticed a change in feeling warm while in bed? 2. Warm hands and warm feet now? 3. A little more energy and waking up a little more refreshed perhaps? Changes to look for: Increased nail and hair growth. Nails and hair becoming...
