Your Health and Adjustable Beds
Natural, Non-Surgical Options for Acid Reflux
Individuals looking for natural acid reflux relief should consider sleeping in an adjustable bed. Doctors routinely recommend sleeping with the torso raised for people who suffer from hiatal hernias, acid reflux and nighttime heartburn. Sleeping in an adjustable bed may help temporarily relieve symptoms by allowing you to raise the head of the bed to just the right position to allow gravity to help fight gastric reflux.
The Doctor's Verdict on Adjustables
Adjustable beds are akin to hospital beds which enable you to elevate your legs or upper body. "Patients I know who use them have conditions like hypertension, circulation problems, decubitus ulcers, or congestive heart failure, and they find it difficult to sleep on a flat bed," says Jeffrey K. Bergin, DC, dean at the National University of Health Sciences in Lombard, Ill.
Dean Bergin also says, "You can mimic the features of an adjustable bed by bolstering it with pillows. It's just easier to push a button." "If a special bed does allow elevation, that would be one scientific reason to recommend it." He says people with asthma, acid reflux disorder, heart failure, or chronic lung disease need to elevate the head of the bed.
