Amazing Benefits of Sleeping on Your Left Side
Many people believe that sleeping to the right is a healthy sleeping position. The reason is that it can protect the heart to remain in stable condition or not suppressed. But it turns out that the sleep position to the left also provides health benefits.
Doctor Johan Douillard explains in his research that sleeping on the left can also save human life. When you sleep at night and tilt to the left, the lymphatic system located above the heart is in the best condition to filter and destroy microorganisms, lymph fluids and toxins through the thoracic and lymph nodes.Keep in mind, the lymph acts as a filter for blood and becomes part of the immune system and also helps the digestive process work properly.
In another study reported in The Journal of Clinical Gastroenterology states that sleeping on the left side is good for people who have stomach acid disorders. Sleeping with the left facing position will make the connection between the stomach and esophagus (esophageal sphincter) is not open despite the high acid levels of the stomach. Thus, stomach acid cannot rise into the esophagus and the stomach does not feel sore. So, for those of you who have stomach acid disorders, better to sleep with left position.
