Bed Aids for Nighttime Heartburn Sufferers

By

Updated December 26, 2012

Nearly 8 in 10 heartburn sufferers will experience heartburn at night. And when people suffer from nighttime heartburn, it is recommended that they elevate their heads and shoulders while sleeping. Why does this help? Elevating your head while sleeping helps keep stomach contents where they belong--in your stomach. The wedges and bed modifications listed below can help with keeping you at a slant while sleeping.
