Acidity, acid reflux, heartburn and GERD are all ailments which may be improved when using an adjustable bed. At the top of our stomach is a valve which usually closes as soon as food and liquids pass through it. With sufferers of acid reflux, the valve doesn’t always close all the way, or sometimes it is open too often, allowing stomach acid to move up into our esophagus.
