Wedge Pillow Cure For Acid Reflux, Heartburn, And GERD

Is Acid Reflux, GERD and Heartburn all the same thing?

Acid reflux, GERD and heartburn can all feel the same, but they are actually different conditions and may require different types of medication and treatment by a doctor.

Heartburn is a common condition, and it feels like a burning pain in the middle of the chest or just below the heart area, typically after eating. 

Acid Reflux is the cause of heartburn, and it is the movement of acid from the stomach moving back up the esophagus.

GERD is diagnosed based on the chronic nature of the acid reflux. When people experience acid reflux and heartburn for several weeks at a frequency of more than two days per week, they may be diagnosed with GERD or gastroesophageal reflux disease.

Reducing The Pain and Burning

GERD, acid reflux and heartburn are all caused by weak muscles at the bottom of the esophagus that do not tighten fully to prevent this backward movement of the stomach acid.

By using an inflatable wedge pillow from Travelwedge, anyone can find a comfortable sleeping position that naturally inclines their body from the waist up to the head. This incline helps to reduce the pressure on the muscle of the esophagus opening to the stomach, reducing the acid reflux as you sleep or relax.

With the wedge pillow design, it is easy to customize the position of the wedge with your body, which is ideal for relaxing and reading, watching television or getting an excellent night's sleep.

Made from high rebound foam and TPU Stretch material, the Travelwedge PRO self-inflating bed wedge offers a quality inflatable pillow that is far superior to trying to create inclines out of traditional pillows. With the gentle yet significant incline, your back is fully supported, helping to prevent neck and shoulder pain that is so common when stacking other pillows.
