Both doctors and the practitioners agree a wedge pillow is the best way to relieve the symptoms of Acid Reflux or Gastroesophogeal Reflux Disease (GERD) and heartburn by elevating your torso to prevent acid from burning the lining of your oesophagus while you sleep.
The Bed Wedge - Acid Reflux can be used in many ways. Place it under your pillow to sleep in a raised comfortable position which is ideal for sufferers of acid reflux and Oesophagitis.
Using a bed wedge whilst asleep to elevate your upper half can severely reduce acid reflux. Just adding extra pillows won’t work because they elevate your head, not your upper torso.
It’s also easier to slip off extra pillows as you sleep.
