Stop heartburn tonight with wedge pillow!

Since you came to this page you are probably suffering from acid reflux and heartburn and want to stop it now. It is not an easy task but there is a help to it. Definitely you won't be able to stop it in a moment but you can reduce it a big time by using wedge (or propup) pillows. These pillows work very simply by elevating the head and neck slightly so the stomach's gastric contents have to fight gravity to reach the esophagus, which is where the discomfort is felt.

Acid reflux wedge pillow is an innovative sleep solution. It was scientifically designed just to help acid reflux sufferers. It relieves acid reflux by elevating your head, shoulders and upper body as doctors recommend. It helps you to sleep in a natural position for controlling heartburn, respiratory problems and digestion ailments. The wedge I'm describing here is crafted using two layers of plush foam to help you sleep soundly. It also has an incline of 6 inches which is selected to provide you with the best comfort and perfect elevation. The wedge's pillow top quilted cover can be removed for easy cleaning.

I've recently read a published paper from Dr. Andrew H. Soll and Dr. Ronnie Fass "Gastroesophageal Reflux: Practical Management of a Common, Challenging Disorder". In this paper they recommend the use of positional therapy to treat mild to moderate nighttime heartburn symptoms. They claim that "elevating the head of the bed is as effective as H2RA therapy in reducing nighttime reflux." When you're sleeping on the incline your body is in position when it is very difficult for acid to get into your esophagus and hurt it. The only case when acid can get there is if you have a severe acid reflux which also occurs in standing or sitting position. According to another study acid reflux patients can see up to 67% improvement in the speed of esophagus clearance from acid following a heartburn episode.

Acid Reflux keeping you up at night?

There is a simple solution which you can start using today even without wedge pillow. Just elevate head of your bed. It helps heartburn with some success but sleep comfort will decrease since it causes you to move towards the foot of the bed or end up sideways on your mattress. And you probably don't even want to think about it when you're not sleeping alone. Your partner probably won't like to sleep in the same position. That is why wedge pillow is the best help for you.

It was hard for me to believe that wedge pillow would work for me. But it was a life saver for me. Even though I don't need it anymore (since I cured my nighttime heartburn) - I still have it in my storage - just in case.
