The lack of sleep can be the reason behind various chronic conditions, depression, sickness, obesity, and high blood pressure. However, even if you are getting the recommended 7-8 hours sleep every night, if you sleep in the wrong position, you will again face problems like neck pain, wrinkles, and stomach issues.
To boost the benefits of sleep, you need to pay attention to the way you spend the night.
According to the sleep expert Doctor John Douillar, it is best to sleep on the left side, and here is why:
-By sleeping on the left side, you will reduce heartburn and help digestion
-Sleeping on the left side is also beneficial in case you snore or suffer from obstructive sleep apnea
-This sleeping position relieves the pressure on the spine so it will also help you to reduce the chronic back pain
-The left body side is the lymphatic side, meaning that this sleeping position will support the healthy function of the lymphatic system and the elimination of toxins, waste and lymph fluids from the body
-If you sleep on the left side, you will improve heart health, as gravity will help the drainage of the lymph nodes towards the heart and ease its work
