Improving your posture for the care and relief of Heartburn
Effectiveness: 2.5Popularity: 35
Why it works: Maintaining a proper, upright posture is important to avoiding GERD symptoms. It allows gas to pass up through the esophagus and release pressure on the stomach. Conversely, stomach pressure and an incorrect angle of the esophagus can lead to reflux.
How it works: While standing, sitting and sleeping, it is important to have a body position that minimizes stomach pressure and places the esophagus in the correct angle, so as to allow easy passage of food on the way into the stomach and easy passage of gas on the way out. A straight position allows gravity to more easily push any refluxed acid back down the esophagus and into the stomach.
