Elevate Your Bed
If you experience heartburn at night, try elevating the head of your bed by approximately 6 inches. This practice helps with the aid of gravity, so stomach acid does not rise back up. Use blocks under the head of the bed, or insert a wedge between your mattress and box spring to prop your body from the waist up. Mattress wedges are available at drug stores and medical supply stores.
