Take the Strain Out of Sitting Up in Bed with the Natural Health Supports Memory Foam Bed Wedge with Washable Cover
The use of a bed wedge can help to alleviate symptoms of a number of issues and help you get a great night’s rest, no matter your physical circumstances. The Natural Health Supports Memory Foam Bed Wedge with Washable Cover is a high quality, large bed wedge that is sure to help you no matter what may be stopping you from enjoying a full and restful night’s sleep, including:
- Acid Reflux and indigestion
- Sleep apnoea (snoring)
- Discomfort due to pregnancy

- Flu like symptoms, in particular tickly coughs. Raising the head can prevent nasal drip and throat irritation as you sleep
This bed wedge is also a great idea for those who struggle to sit up unaided in bed. This is something we can all be faced with in our lives, whether temporary or permanent. Pregnancy, abdominal or back surgery, sports or other injury and age all play a part in our range of motion. A bed wedge reduces the flat to seated angle, making it easier for you to sit up.
This is especially useful for women who have undergone a caesarean section birth and are breast feeding. Sitting up every hour or two when you have undergone major surgery can take its toll and cause you pain, as well as slowing down your recovery. If possible, you should do all you can to reduce the strain put on your abdominal muscles during this time; by reducing that 90-degree angle, your lower abdominal muscles don’t need to work as hard to help you rise.
Natural Health Supports Memory Foam Bed Wedge to Alleviate Acid Reflux
Bed wedges are commonly used by people who are suffering with acid reflux. Commonly called GERD (an acronym for Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease), acid reflux is caused by excess acid leaving the stomach and backing up into the oesophagus where it gives an extreme burning feeling in the chest (‘heartburn’). This awful condition can cause you severe pain in the chest. In fact, it’s not uncommon for sufferers to call 999 with a suspected heart attack! Your diet and lifestyle choices can help to alleviate the symptoms, and a bed wedge helps to keep the acid away from the oesophagus. GERD is not only painful, it can also cause damage to the vocal chords and cause esophagitis, Barett's oesophagus, strictures, and oesophageal cancer. If you suffer with GERD, you should do all you can to prevent acid from flowing back from the stomach; this bed wedge is the perfect solution and is recommended by the Oesophageal Patients Association (OPA).
You can also place this versatile memory foam bed wedge at the bottom of the bed to raise and support your legs. This provides relief from varicose veins, swollen ankles, phlebitis and oedema.
