3. Sleep Position Changes
First of all, many individuals are unaware that sleep after a meal is a terrible idea. In some cases, this is how a hiatal hernia and GERD appear. Instead, the individual should stay in an upward position for 3 hours after a meal.
This will help with proper digestion that hiatal hernia relief depends on. Also, anyone that has this illness should sleep with their torso higher than the rest of the body. The angle of the esophagus, diaphragm, and stomach needs to be lower than that of the mouth. This way, the individual can avoid unwanted acid reflux.
