Wedge Pillows for Acid Reflux
Whether you are trying to replace reflux medications or want to use postioning in addition to them, wedge pillows provide relief for acid reflux. Clinical trials on positioning are harder to find than they are on medications because trials are expensive and generally funded by Pharmaceutical companies, however, there is some clinical evidence supporting positioning to improve reflux episodes and duration. In Clinical Cornerstone, vol 1, Issue 5, 1999, Dr. Andrew H. Soll and Dr. Ronnie Fass found that "elevating the head of the bed is as effective as H2RA therapy in reducing nighttime reflux."
Side Sleeping Wedge Pillows for Acid Reflux
A study conducted by the Graduate Hospital in Philadelphia found that lying on the left side is the best acid reflux sleep position. Combining the left side sleeping position with upright positioning is often times enough to completely eliminate acid reflux medications. Maintaining that position through the night, however, can be difficult. We are excited to offer an acid reflux pillow that is specifically designed to help you do that.

Designed by an anesthesia doctor to elevate the upper body, head and neck, the ARA bed wedge helps to decrease the flow of gastric juices back up into the esophagus. When lying on the ARA bed wedge, the weight of the abdomen falls away from the diaphragm which facilitates easier breathing.
The design of the ARA helps to open the upper airway (oral, pharynx and larynx) by
aligning these three axes.
The comfort lift adjustable bed wedge pillow is the only height-adjustable bed wedge pillow we know of, letting you control just how upright you need to be in order to get a good night’s sleep.
Designed for those suffering from moderate to severe acid reflux disease, it’s unique shaping can provide a 30 to 40 degree angle. The molded raised section supporting the spinal cord prevents the
middle of the pillow from sinking in over time which can cause the shoulders to roll in and the chin to angle toward the chest - restricting breathing ways.
If you struggle with reflux or apnea and benefit from side sleeping this is the perfect bed wedge pillow for you.
Made from soft yet resilient memory foam, this reflux sleep positioner has shoulder supports to help keep you on your side all night long while on a 30 degree angle.
