What is GERD?
GERD, or gastroesophageal reflux disease, is more than just an uncomfortable sensation. The symptoms of acid reflux can include difficulty falling asleep, burning sensations, and choking during sleep.
This occurs when stomach acid moves from the stomach into the oesophagus. Muscles at the bottom of the oesophagus typically act as a barrier to prevent this from happening. Sometimes, however, the muscles are weak or relaxed and don’t close completely. That’s when the problem occurs. We all experience reflux from time to time, but it is mild and infrequent, and it usually goes away on its own. Unfortunately, Acid Reflux affects some people at least once per week and often causes severe and bothersome symptoms.
How Wedge Mattress Prevents GERD?
Elevating the upper body reduces the likelihood of stomach acid entering the oesophagus. In addition to preventing the jaw and tongue from falling back into the throat while sleeping on the back, the Acid Reflux Wedge Mattress helps to reduce the negative pressure that worsens reflux. People with asthma, emphysema, bronchial problems, heart conditions, pulmonary problems, chest congestion, hoarseness or other breathing problems can also benefit from this mattress.
