Sleep Position and Heart Health
I've thought about this for a long time since I like to sleep on my left side, but was surprised to hear it mentioned on a recent Dr. Oz show.
Dr. Oz said that when you sleep on your left side you're 'crowding' your heart and not giving it very much room. He said that it gets squeezed up against the chest cavity and someone who frequently sleeps on their left side may be opening themselves up for potential heart problems in the future.
Any thoughts on this?
