Almost everyone has heard about  the acid reflux pillow but does everyone who buys one of these pillows rant and rave about them?  One of the things you must know about the acid reflux pillow is that the wedge in the pillow is designed to elevate you upper body 4 to 6 inches in height.  A regular sleeping pillow does not give acid reflux sufferers the proper height and actually makes their situation worse when their chest is not raised.  A good acid reflux pillow will provide you with the following benefits:

  • While in bed at night the wedge of the acid reflux pillow will provide your upper body with a natural incline from your waist to your head.  This helps to lengthen your body which provides your digestive system enough room to do its work.  This means you have less occurrences of heartburn acid reflux as your last meal is easily digested while you sleep.
  • The acid reflux pillow provides a seamless integration with your bed because it can be sleep under your mattress which allows all of your regular bedding to be used.  You simply make your make like you normally would and the wedge while lurking under the mattress does not interfere.
  • As you may well know buying an adjustable bed can be quite expensive.  Well the acid reflux pillow is an economical way to turn your existing mattress into an adjustable one.  It works with the popular memory foam mattresses as well as the coiled spring mattresses.  Because the lift from the acid reflux pillow wedge expands up to 26 inches you can adjust it for reading or watching TV and then lower it at night as you get ready for bed.
  • Many people who suffer from acid reflux are also heavy snorers.  An acid reflux pillow not only helps with indigestion but also great for sleep apnea and snoring problems.  It helps to improve the breathing passageways while also improving sinus drainage.  Acid reflux is terribly uncomfortable and if left untreated it can lead to more severe problems.  Make sure you see your health practitioner, try over the counter antacids and use the wedge pillow to help reduce permanent damage to your esophagus.
  • A good acid reflux pillow will generally support weight up to one thousand pounds.  This is important especially if you have one of the heavier pillow top mattresses.  The pillow is available for use on twin, queen and king size beds.  Make sure you eat a couple hours before going to bed, sleep with your head raised approximately 4 -6 inches with your wedge pillow to help reduce acid reflux symptoms.
