Acid Reflux. How to Raise the Head of a Latex Mattress.

Gene writes:
Hello Peter,
My wife and I love the latex mattress that we bought from you. 
My wife has been diagnosed with a serious case of acid reflux and her doctor has asked her to raise the head of the bed. 
Apparently the doctor suggested risers on the head side of the bed. 
Since this is a foam mattress I am wondering how well that will work. 
Do you have any suggestion on how we can raise the head of the bed?
An adjustable bed base?
Any help that you can provide is very much appreciated.
Thanks, Gene

Hi Gene,

The trick is to solve one problem without causing another.
A standard adjustable bed base will allow you to raise the head. 
But, in doing so, it will throw off the alignment of the spine and make it impossible for your wife to sleep on her side.
Your best bet is what the doctor recommended….risers for the legs at the head of the bed.
This will give you the tilt she needs and still allow her to sleep with her spine properly aligned, and on her side.
Here is a link to bed risers on Amazon.com

IMPORTANT INFORMATION:
Protect and maximize your mattress investment. Use a waterproof mattress protector.

Thanks, Pete
