Heartburn Sleep Tips Techniques and the Mattress Genie Bed Lift System

What can you do for heartburn other than popping antacids like candy? Did you know that if you drink one less carbonated beverage a day will decrease the risk of heartburn by 30%? Or switching your lighter roast coffee for darker roasted can reduce stomach acids? Even if you eat 3 hours before bedtime can help with GERD or acid reflux. 40% of people in the U.S. have heartburn at least once a month and 10% of us get it daily. Chronic heartburn is a sign of acid reflux a condition when left untreated can increase the risk of esophageal cancer. Less heartburn means better sleep as four out of ten people with GERD have sleep problems. Laying down causes a backwash of acid from your stomach to your throat and by trying some heartburn sleep tips and techniques you could reduce your acid reflux by 60%.

Prescription medications aren’t your only relief option as there are other ways to keep your stomach acids from going into your esophagus. Elevate your head with the mattress genie bed lift system, avoid chocolate and spicy foods, cut back on salt and fat, eat more vegetables, fruits and whole grains and lose 10% of your body fat. If you are taking benzodiazepines like Valium, Xanax or Halcyon to fall asleep ask your doctor for an alternative medication as these drugs can increase heartburn by 50%, because they relax the muscle valve that keeps the acid in your stomach. Other tips include taking a walk after eating a big meal, chewing gum (not mint) and drinking milk to reduce the chance for heartburn. Other heartburn triggers are citrus fruits, tomatoes, raw onions, garlic, black pepper, vinegar, fatty and spicy foods, light roasted coffee and alcoholic beverages.
