Brief Answer: Left lateral turn is better Detailed Answer: Hi I suggest your wife to turn to left lateral side while sleeping. I also suggest to remain upright for at least one hour after meal. The food that is taken will at least take one hour and half to pass off from the stomach. The discomfort is mainly experienced after the meal. The above two measures should help.
