The Way You Sleep Can Lead To Heartburn
Studies have found the elevating the head of your bed can bring relief from acid reflux symptoms. When your head is raised high, stomach acid can’t flow back up into the esophagus. If it’s not possible to raise the headboard, try sleeping propped up on a wedge pillow for the same effect. Some studies show that sleeping on the left reduces incidences of reflux. Experts believe sleeping on the right increases transient LES relaxations that are associated with reflux.
