The Best Wedge Pillow for GERD?

Friday, 29 September 2017  |  John

Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (better known as GERD or GORD) affects the ring of muscle between the oesophagus and stomach. It can cause the stomach’s contents to enter the oesophagus, which is more commonly known as acid reflux or heartburn. 

This feels exceptionally unpleasant and can irritate or even inflame the oesophagus, causing complications later on. Because of this, it’s important that if you’re suffering from GERD, you can do everything possible to prevent acid reflux. Wedge pillows like the Harley Bed Relaxer place your head at an incline, helping to prevent acid reflux.

How Do Wedge Pillows Help GERD?

By placing your head at an incline as you sleep, wedge pillows for GERD like the Harley Bed Relaxer uses gravity to help keep your stomach’s contents out of your oesophagus. This helps you get your forty winks without walking up the next morning with an unpleasant-feeling throat. 

The Harley Bed Relaxer – Comfortable Support

Fantastically soft, the Harley Bed Relaxer wedge pillow is made with comfortable polyurethane foam, helping your whole body sleep well. It even includes a soft cover made with a blend of velour and polyester fleece that both keeps the wedge cushion in top condition but also feels fantastic against your head.

As well as being a great sleeping pillow, the bed relaxer is also ideal as a backrest pillow for reading or watching TV in bed. Its comfortable design feels great against your back, and provides the support needed for sitting up in bed comfortably.

What Do Our Customers Say?

Don’t just take our word for it, though. Many of our customers have found that the Harley Bed Relaxer has helped with digestive conditions like GERD, enabling them get a great night’s sleep every night.
