Natura MediWedge Foundation
MediWedge is a patented technology designed to improve the sleep experience and address common sleep issues like Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD). Natura World has had exclusive rights to manufacture and distribute MediWedge Foundations in North America since early 2012 when they unveiled the technology at the Canadian Home Furnishings Market in Toronto (January) and the Las Vegas Furniture Market in February.
Heartburn is an irritation of the esophagus caused by hydrochloric acid that refluxes (comes up) from the stomach. Persistent heartburn can be a signal of something more serious such as GERD. The Esophagus carries food from the mouth to the stomach; it has a sphincter valve where the esophagus meets the stomach to prevents food and acid from refluxing back up into the esophagus. If this valve is weak or does not work properly, stomach acid can reflux back in to the esophagus, causing the burning sensation and damaging the esophagus. Learn more about GERD here. GERD can result in such serious issues as Cancer of the Larynx and Esophagus and Adult onset Asthma.
If you suffer from Heartburn, Acid Reflux, or GERD then you have a vested interest in anything that can help alleviate or make the symptoms disappear and the MediWedge is one possibility of doing so.
Natura MediWedge Foundation:
The MediWedge foundation use gravity to diminish the effects of nighttime reflux and naturally open the airway. The MediWedge features a gentle incline towards the head of the bed. You just choose your favorite Natura mattress and put it on top of the MediEWedge foundation.
The Natura MediWedge Foundation creates the right incline that won’t shorten the life of your mattress or result in saggy areas.
The Natura MediWedge Foundations come in both Standard and Low profiles with each having an incline increase of 4 inches from foot to head.
