Dr J.P. Torre is conducting an Independent Review of Inclined Bed Therapy. He is asking for people to join his online study.

Can you help me and Dr Torre by sharing your IBT experience through his research site? He is only interested in collecting data so you can remain anonymous.

Dr J.P. Torre is conducting an Independent Review of Inclined Bed Therapy. He is asking for people to join his online study. Please Help by sharing your IBT experience with him.

This is very exciting and a long awaited breakthrough.
 
"- There are convincing facts about IBT including NASA research and it is certainly intriguing that ancient Egyptians slept inclined.
 
- There are numerous reports that Inclined sleeping has resulted in health and well being improvements.
 
- It is important to explore ideas that come from outside the direct medical or pharmaceutical community.
 
- Raising the head of a bed can be easily done for free.
 
- If IBT theory is correct the impact on health care spending could be substantial."
Dr Torre wants to include data from people already using IBT.
Here is your chance to help him understand more about how IBT has affected you. He does not need your personal details if you wish to remain anonymous.
 ​
When IBT theory is proven independently by a Doctor, it would undoubtedly provide a simple cost effective way to treat or prevent many serious conditions that today can only be treated with drugs. Health Services Finances, currently directed on drug based treatments, could be redirected towards research, to improve public health.
 
In order to prove IBT theory more studies and data is urgently required and this is an opportunity to do just that!
We hope you are interested in assisting in data gathering to support either the validation or invalidation of IBT, 
 
The More people that are participating, the stronger the conclusions of the study will be !"

You don't have to be sick to join either, Dr Torre is researching a wide range of physiological changes and is interesting in seeking solutions to help prevent medical conditions and boosting your health and fitness also.

CCSVI Classified

Common sense always prevails.

Committee of experts from 47 countries and chaired by prof. Byung Lee B, Georgetown officially clasyficated CCSVI as congenital deformities, and prior venous lesions in MS.

http://phleb.rsmjournals.com/cgi/reprint/22/6/249.pdf


Report



But what's all the excitement about something everyone knew. It was obvious that CCSVI was present before or at the time of ms. No one can deny this.

But what causes the CCSVI? I would imagine it is not present from birth, so what has caused this to develop?

What alters the pressure inside those veins to cause them to twist and strangulate?

Answer based on those cases we see in thisisms who have adopted the Inclined Therapy method must be posture related!

How else can these people be recovering function and sensitivity without surgery?

More to the point, it certainly looks like that old favourite of humans, sleeping flat is suspected to be the main contributing factor for both ccsvi and ms.

Remember, this is the third study we are seeing identical patterns of recovery in.

And then those varicose veins recovering again without surgery using I.T. paints a glorious picture of how sleeping flat must have been the main contributing factor that initiated their development and maintained their progress. Again no surgery required!


So if this can happen in Varicose Veins, Chronic Venous Insufficiency and lead to recovery from multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, spinal cord injury and "cerebral palsy in a child in Kent" it must be having an observable affect on CCSVI if CCSVI is contributing to ms. If CCSVI is not affected by I.T. then there is obviously another underlying cause.


And I suspect that the liquid crystal properties of myelin might have something to say about this.

Lesions are lesions. M.S. = Multiple scars in the nervous system and / or brain. Those scars have not gone away because someone has opened up the plumbing and placed an insert inside.

The circulation in the arteries and veins is separate from the nervous system. The heart does not affect the circulation in the nervous system, so this plumbing job can address lethargy and blood flow related problems, assisting people to become more active, which will inevitably lead to better posture for longer periods. Perhaps it is activity that is helping ms symptoms rather than the plumbing job?

But at least CCSVI now has an official stamp, it's a start.
how can i explain these abrupt changes.? we can all guess cant we. perhaps myelin transmission needs certain amount of blood flow, oxygen pressure reduction, cleansing for improved function. Your guess is as good as mine at this point. Like i keep saying we are just beginning an age of discovery. so much to learn, it will take the rest of my useful career, and i am thankful for that.
clearly such improvements in the moment, sometimes even before the procedure is completed will lead to doubts, especially by those who don't want to have been this wrong.



My money is on the improved tension and reduction in pressure in the venous return stimulating the cerebrospinal fluid flow. I.B.T addresses this using posture alone to change the pressure and increase the tension on the blood inside the veins, the evidence being the dramatic improvements in chronic venous insufficiency, oedema and varicose veins. Before and after Photographs available for evidence.

IBT has been shown right here in this forum to stimulate significant recovery in RR, PP and SP ms. Yet it is continually ignored? These results are very real and need to
To be taken into account.

IBT should be the very first intervention for all people with ms. And it is not just about how blood circulates, it addresses all circulation including blood flow, the cerebrospinal fluid circulation, lymph circulation and the circulation in the skin.

This simple postural therapy has also worked with spinal cord injury and Parkinsons's disease, neither of which are identified as associated with CCSVI.

Yet habitual unscientific adherence to flat bed rest which has been shown to be harmful in the literature time and time again that even in just a few hours of flat bed rest the body begins to shut down and the longer we remain flat the more damage to our body we do and this has been known and reported by doctors over the decades, while hospitals continue to use a horizontal model for recovery?

Insanity is to keep doing the same thing over and over again and expecting to get different results. This also applies to the insanity of sleeping flat and expecting to wake up to health improvements.

Sleeping flat for 24 hours has been shown to cause considerable problems for circulation. Maybe the cumulative effect of retiring to a flat bed each night is sufficient to cause neurological degeneration in people who are more susceptible to it's harmful effects?

Long before vascular stent and balloon surgery became an option, people with ms were finding remarkable improvements using Inclined Bed Therapy.

When I try to speak about it here, people but in and say on behalf of everyone reading this thread that we don’t want to hear it. Well I am not going to be silenced as long as there are people who need to learn about this safe and effective alternative to surgery.

In the unlikely event that IBT does not begin to work over 4 months then and only then should anyone consider a surgical approach and let’s face it there are many people on waiting lists who could at least put postural therapy to the test.

Dr Claude Francheschi advocates postural therapy as an answer to CCSVI and he now advises ms patients to sleep on an inclined bed.

Venous insufficiency and splitting dynamics of hydrostatic pressure column

Sang Thrombose Vaisseaux. Volume 13, Number 5, 307-10, May 2001, Lexicon

Summary
Author (s): Claude Franceschi, cardiovascular center, St. Joseph Hospital, 185 rue Raymond Losserand, 75674 Paris Cedex 14 ..
Abstract: A better understanding of the pathophysiology of hemodynamic venous system is necessary not only for diagnosis but also to improving the treatment of venous insufficiency. The clinical and laboratory manifestations of venous insufficiency is the consequence of a hemodynamic disorder. This disorder can be defined as the inability of the system to ensure a unidirectional flow cardiop├Ęte venous flow and pressure responsive tissue drainage, temperature control and filling of the heart regardless of the conditions of posture and muscle activity. Given that symptoms are reduced and become worse clinostatism orthostasis, it is obvious that the conditions of posture and therefore the hydrostatic pressure determines the onset of symptoms such as regression of the disease. All this according to the laws of gravity that the hydrostatic pressure is almost zero and maximum clinostatism orthostasis. The venous pressure at the ankle also varies in supine and standing motionless in healthy subjects as venous insufficiency in the subject. But walking, it decreases much less in venous insufficiency than in healthy subjects. This shows that there is a way of controlling the hydrostatic pressure at idle but active rest while walking and lower efficacy in venous insufficiency than in healthy subjects. This phenomenon may be related to the action of the pump-valvulo muscle would split the column of hydrostatic pressure in the lower limb muscle activity. The most common hemodynamic disturbance responsible for venous insufficiency, is thus the result of a lack of what we call the dynamic fractionation column of hydrostatic pressure (FDPH).

Gravity and the circulation: "open" vs. "closed" systems.

Am J Physiol 1992 May;262(5 Pt 2):R725-32

Gravity and the circulation: "open" vs. "closed" systems.

Hicks JW, Badeer HS

Department of Biomedical Sciences, School of Medicine, Creighton University, Omaha, Nebraska 68178-0224.
The elementary principles of liquid dynamics are described by the equations of Bernoulli and Poiseuille. Bernoulli's equation deals with nonviscous liquids under steady streamline flow. Pressures in such flows are related to gravity and/or acceleration. Changes in elevation affect the gravitational potential energy of the liquid and the velocity of flow determines the kinetic energy. The sum of these three factors represented in the Bernoulli equation remains constant, but the variables are interconvertible. In contrast, the Poiseuille equation describes the pressures related to viscous resistance only, and the energy of flow is dissipated as heat. A combination of the two equations describes the flow in tubes more realistically than either equation alone. In "open" systems gravity hinders uphill flow and causes downhill flow, in which the liquid acts as a falling body. In contrast, in "closed" systems, like the circulation, gravity does not hinder uphill flow nor does it cause downhill flow, because gravity acts equally on the ascending and descending limbs of the circuit. Furthermore, in closed systems, the liquid cannot "fall" by gravity from higher levels of gravitational potential to lower levels of potential. Flow, up or down, must be induced by some source of energy against the resistance of the circuit. In the case of the circulation, the pumping action of the heart supplies the needed energy gradients. Flow in collapsible tubes, like veins, obeys the same basic laws of liquid dynamics except that transmural pressures near zero or below zero reduce markedly the cross-sectional area of the tube, which increases the viscous resistance to flow.

Another report from a person with a spinal cord injury

Cheryl Rodriquez

I'm Paralized from the chest down and in a wheelchair. I Can do almost everything myself !

Have been doing inclined bed therapy for about 6 mos. My left foot is moving alot now, plus my toes on my right foot are moving too. Everything else seems to be improving too. Thanks to Andrew Fletcher.

"To help, you can:

Eat small, frequent meals.
Stand or sit for 1 to 3 hours after eating.
Use blocks to raise the head of your bed."

In my opinion, an inclined bed can assist the body and indeed the skin to repair itself, by increasing oxygen sats and helping to migrate salts away from the skins surface.

I have seen at first hand how psoriasis positively responds to sleeping at a five degree angle. I have also seen how old scar tissue smoothed out. On my leg for example, a deep grooved scar, present since an encounter with barbed wire for many years. I tilted my bed in 1994 and it was several years later when I noticed the scar was barely visible and the groove had filled up with healthy skin.

Dr J.P. Torre has set up an online research website to determine the effects of sleeping on an inclined bed as opposed to sleeping flat.
He is seeking participants to take part in this trial.

I have fought for 23 years to have IBT investigated independently and now we have a fantastic opportunity to study the effects with an inevitable publication of his findings. He doesn't need any personal details and this can be done anonymously if you wish to.

Can you help him?
