It’s Crucial You Sleep On The Left Side and Never on The Right

People like to be comfortable when sleeping and that’s why some people sleep on the left side, some on the right, while others sleep on their back. Some even sleep on their stomach. But all sleeping positions influence your health in one way or another.

Sleeping on the back is known to cause problems with your breathing, so people who suffer from asthma are advised not to sleep on their back. Sleeping on the left side is known to improve digestion, whereas sleeping on the right causes the opposite – digestive problems.

 

Benefits Of Sleeping On The Left Side

Holistic medicine and other researches claim that the left side of our body is the side on which the lymphatic organs are dominant. This means that by sleeping your left side, the  body is going to have more time to filter the toxic wastes through the lymph nodes.

Besides that, we’re gonna name some other benefits of sleeping on the left side:

1. Relieves Back Pain.

Sleeping on the left side is perfect for people who suffer from chronic back pain since it relieves the spinal pressure and it makes you feel comfortable.

2. Good For Your Heart.

The blood circulation gets improved by sleeping on the left side as it takes off some pressure from the heart.

3. Good For Pregnant Women.

The ideal position for pregnant women is to sleep on the left side as it helps relieve the pressure from the back, as well as to increase the blood flow to the uterus and the kidneys.

4. Reduces Heartburn.

Sleeping on the left side doesn’t allow the stomach to send some of the acids back to the esophagus and cause heartburn.

 

Now you know everything. What’s next? Changing your position.
