Researchers have found that a change in sleeping angle and position helps reduce the likelihood and severity of acid reflux during the night. Placing the bed on a slant is one of the steps they suggest as helpful. Raising the bed can be done easily with some solid blocks of wood positioned under the supports at the head of the bed. Ideally, try to increase the head of the bed by about eight inches. When you get up in the morning after what is hopefully going to be a much better night's sleep, do not sit down to a meal wearing very tight clothing.
