Most of us sleep the way it feels most comfortable. (Studies show this is actually on our stomachs!) But for the past few years I have been going to sleep on my left side with a small pillow in between my knees for back protection and the results have paid off!
If any of you suffer from GERD, stomach aches, indigestion, going through a cleanse or detox etc**…Then try this, I’m sure you will slowly feel a huge difference. Also make sure you sleep in complete silence and darkness (use blackout curtains, hypnotherapy music and eye masks).
** When going through a cleansing phase a few years back I slept on my right side, trust me when I say I was very ill! I couldn’t understand why! But it was because I was blocking my body from digesting the ingredients properly and was very sick in the middle of the night – making the effects of the cleanse useless!
As the pictures and diagrams above show, your organs all operate better when sleeping on the left-side. Making your digestive system work at its peak. Especially as your liver and body go through detox around 11pm – 2am you want to make the most of it!
Most of us toss and turn during the night but that’s normal, as long as your make a good effort to sleep on your left side when falling asleep your body will naturally and gradually succumb to finding that position the more comfortable.
-avoid caffeinated, alcohol, chocolate , sugary foods or sparkling products and also hard to digest foods late at night too.
On your back: Worsnes snoring, doesn’t help digestion, doesn’t help neck or back pain.
On your stomach: Worsens back and neck pain, doesn’t help with breast wrinkles, doesn’t help with digestion or any stomach issues.
On your side: Helps with snoring, helps with back pain (pillow in-between knees) improves circulation, best way to sleep if you are pregnant. It’s easier for the heart to pump downhill. Helps bile and spleen function.
(Unless you have a shoulder or arm injury – changing your sleeping position till your healed is ok)
Try it yourself and wake up feeling refreshed and healthy ☺️
