    Studies have shown that this position aids digestion and helps with the removal of stomach acid. Sleeping on the right side has been shown to worsen heartburn.

    The golden rule for acidity or reflux, is to have the head of the bed elevated. Or, by putting blocks under the legs of the bed at the head end. We did that for my mother. Then, she had to have a footstool with wide steps to get up on the bed.
