Why not sleep on your right side
Sleep position can affect our health. Experts have warned not to sleep on their backs in the past because it can cause some people to breathe dangerously. There are also health reasons not to sleep on the right side. On the left side to rest, however, is recommended.
Various causes of reflux
Every second Germans sometimes suffer from heartburn. This may be due to being overweight, heavy, fatty foods, stress or excess alcohol and nicotine. Even the wrong sleeping position can increase heartburn, as shown in a study.
Left Sleep has less heartburn
US scientists found in the journal "The Journal of Clinical Gastroenterology" published a study that people who sleep on the left side, let alone suffer from stomach ulcers (also known as reflux) as people who sleep well.
Other health professionals also refer to this fact and explain the phenomenon with the stomach and its contents further below the esophagus than lying on the left side.
In the case of sleeping the right eye, on the other hand, it is easier for chyme to return to the esophagus.
But there are more reasons why you should sleep better on the left side. Some of them have doctors. Named John Douillard on his website and on many YouTube videos.
Better transportation of essential nutrients
According to health experts, doing the lymphatic system of the body is a good thing, resting on the left side.
This has to do with the fact that the left side of the body is the dominant lymphatic side.
The lymphatic system, the largest organ of the immune system, plays a central role in the fight against invading pathogens and malignant degenerative cancer cells.
In addition, it is responsible for transporting essential nutrients and filtering waste materials.
And also the spleen, which is responsible for blood purification, is located on the left side and therefore can work more easily, if we sleep on the left side.
Benefits for digestion and heart health
The location of the stomach and pancreas also suggests sleeping on the left side.
Because this contributes to experts according to better digestion.
But who is right to sleep, presses his stomach on the pancreas and blocks their activity.
And another point that supports better sleep on the left side: In the right sleeping position, the heart must work harder.
Because the main artery, the aorta, branches from the heart to the left, before it descends to the stomach.
By lying on the left side, the heart pumps blood directly down to the descending aorta, freeing organs automatically. (Ad)
