It’s a burning pain in your chest and it wakes up more than 65 million people around the world at night.  In fact, acid reflux pain has become such an epidemic in our country that the national cancer society has recently listed it as a top priority.  The gastric content from your stomach shoots into your esophagus and this is most often experienced as heartburn.

Without any intervention such as using a Prop-Up Pillow the acid reflux can damage the lining of your stomach know as Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).  This is where the food or liquid from your stomach leaks from your stomach back into the esophagus which is the tube that leads from your stomach to your mouth.

If you’re suffering from acid reflux there is a lot that you can do to help yourself and it all revolves around lifestyle.  You can begin by changing your diet and avoiding common foods or liquids which trigger acid reflux symptoms.  Typically alcohol, carbonated drinks, tomato based food and drinks, spicy foods, fatty food, and fat dairy products are no-no’s.

There are over the counter antacids that you can take but the downside is that they don’t usually last very long and the have can have side-effects such as diarrhea or constipation.  A more holistic approach that has been developed is the use of a Prop-Up Pillow which helps to elevate the esophagus while sleeping.  How the pillow supports the upper body while sleep is key whether or not it control acid buildup during sleep time.

The very first thing is that the pillow would need to be 6 – 8 inches at its highest point.  It would also need to gently decline the body downward and be able to adequately support your entire back area.  If you were to use regular pillows they would force you to bend your body which creates a less desired effect of pushing the acid up.  To control acid buildup your entire body must be gently supported.

Just by raising the head of your bed with a Prop-Up Pillow and not eating heavy meals, avoiding greasy or spicy foods you can significantly reduce GERT symptoms and prevent acid reflux.  With this holistic approach to treating acid reflux many acid reflux sufferers are able to be proactive and get the problems under control before the become a nightmare.

Other things you can do to help reduce your occurrences of acid reflux is avoid bending over and refrain from exercising just after you’ve eaten.  Don’t choke your waist with tight-fitting clothes or belts. Avoid lying down with a full stomach and try not to eat at least 2-3 hours before bedtime.  Give up smoking and eat smaller more frequent meals.  Lastly, reduce the amount of stress in your life and raise your head at least 6 inches by tilting your body with the Prop-Up Pillow.

Advances like the Prop-Up Pillow gives us hope for a safer tomorrow.  The pillow is a patented technology and FDA approved acid reflux pillow.  This your opportunity to be able to sleep at night with a drug-free alternative.  It a better approach to holistic living rather than taking pills for the rest of your life.

What makes the Prop-Up Pillow unique from all the other acid reflux pillows on the market?

The Prop-Up Pillow was designed in part by a chiropractor who specializes in gastroenterology. The goal was to not only have the Prop-Up Pillow be comfortable but also worked effectively to control acid reflux symptoms.  Suffice it to say that no matter how good the pillow is at controlling acid reflux if it feels like a board you won’t be able to sleep at night.  If you don’t use it then the pillow is worthless.
