Position 1 or "Recovery Position" on your left side helps reduce heartburn. The oesophagus and stomach are joined in the right side due to gravity preventing acid reflux.

Position 2 or "Lay at Your Back Position" aids in reducing chances of arthritis and joint pains. The weight of the body is being distributed evenly minimizing the strain.

Position 3 or "Fetal Position" will lessen pressure on the spine discs. Furthermore it helps in channelling the fluid to enhance its repair.

I hope this helps a bit. Good day!
