Inclined Bed Therapy is the simple practice of raising the head of your bed by four to eight inches in order to improve circulation throughout the body while allowing you to sleep comfortably. You most likely would have come across this idea in the form of a commercial wedge pillow for acid reflux, but this natural treatment can offer the user a number of health benefits.
In particular, those who suffer from GERD or acid reflux often benefit from Incline Bed Therapy because it helps to keep acidic gastric juices from rising up the esophagus. It is also said to offer better circulatory system health than lying entirely prone, as the body somewhat relies on gravity to power the arterial and venous systems of the bloodstream. A wedge pillow is one solution, but various means of elevating your bed (the whole thing) are also described below.
Natural Cures: Incline Bed Therapy may be good for digestive issues such as GERD, sleep apnea and snorers, edema in the legs, skeletal and spine disorders or injuries, back pain, and respiratory conditions.

Inclined Bed Therapy (IBT) is where your bed is raised at the head end by a minimum of 5 inches to take advantage of the earths gravity on circulation.
Gravity Driven Circulation, A Ground breaking new discovery into circulation by Andrew K Fletcher A simple and revolutionary discovery is making waves in the science community and will rewrite the Biology and Physics books. Inclined Bed Therapy has been shown to help/cure:- Multiple Sclerosis, Varicose Veins, Spinal Cord Injuries, Neurological disorders, Circulatory problems, Skin disorders, and many more. Do yourself a favor and put your bed on an angle and see for yourself! It's FREE! Just put 2 blocks under the head end of your bed and sleep on it. http://www.inclinedbedtherapy.com
[YEA] Yay. After reading about Inclined Bed Therapy, my husband and I raised the top (head) of our bed by six inches last week as we'd heard there were multiple health benefits with doing this. We bought new, taller bed legs but others have used bricks, books and planks of wood. So I can report back after 10 days:
- I don't get heartburn at night anymore (not to say I don't still have a hernia or reflux, but I just never suffer from heartburn at nighttime)
- My husband's loud snoring has greatly improved (now a gentle murmur).
Others have reported improvement to varicose veins (meant to take 4 weeks: I'm waiting! ), deeper sleeps, more vivid dreams, fixing their backs, fixing their oedema (swollen feet/ankles) and less up and downing to the toilet.
Hope this helps, it's such a simple solution!
[YEA] I have been sleeping in a incline bed for few mounts , so far good improvement, back pain, gone acid reflux better, sleep apnea much better snore gone. The problem is I also have leg pain and to relieve that, I need to put pillows under my legs. I hear that may causes problem later on. Need some opinion, please.
