There are various sleeping positions such as on your back, on your left side, right side or on your stomach. All of these sleeping positions all affect your health and prevent sleeplessness. Sleeping on your back can be dangerous for people with sleep apnea or asthma because it can cause breathing problems. Sleeping on the right side can aggravate any digestive problems, while sleeping on the left side can improve digestive symptoms.
Try to sleep on your left side!
I never knew this, but sleeping on your left side can improve your health. It even goes so far that it can even save lives. In holistic medicine, the left side of the body is the dominant lymphatic side. This probably does not ring a bell, but while you’re sleeping on this side, your body has more time to filter toxins, lymph fluid and waste through the thoracic canal and lymph nodes. If you sleep on your right side, the lymph system can start to run slower.
Of course, you do not want this to happen, because a lymphatic system that does not run at full capacity is not capable of filtering toxins or allowing the lymph fluid to run properly through the body. This increases the chance of diseases due to the build up of toxins.
If you start sleeping on your left side, you can notice that your body is increasingly removing the toxin waste. This happens because in this position the digestive system improves and your body is able to remove toxins. You will see that you will sleep much better if you sleep on your left side. Of course, you will also look much fitter because of this the next day!
