Due to how your stomach is situated, lay on your left side. This reduces acid traveling back through the esophogeal valve between the stomach and the esophogus.

Great suggestion! It is true and has worked for me many times. I try not to sleep on my right side specifically for this reason.


either thats bullshit or i have something else wrong with me,....if i lay on either right or left just makes it worse


this is somewhat correct! its a great way to relieve yourself if you have gas or a painfull gas bubble. its also a great way to help constipation. doc's lay you on this side if you recieve a colonic(they 'suck' your poop out!) but i strongly disagree that this would have any imediate effect on heartburn/indigestion! it even takes a while to help with the things i mentioned. plus the 'left side' thing is more directed to your lower digestive sysetm(intestins)

This does work. I have done it a many of times when I have had heartburn and it has worked every time.


This is a true fact, I was unaware of why it was easier to sleep on my left side. It's a releif to know that its the way the stomach is designed, I thought there may have been another reason (something worse). Totally agree with your comment.


This really does work! I always lay on my left side for a few mins when I first go to sleep at night to make sure I don't get heartburn at night.


My acid reflux is way too bad for it to work.
