Providing our customers with the Reflux Guard© Mattress Wedge is the best job in the world! The Reflux Guard© Mattress Wedge is a revolutionary, non-invasive solution for chronic heartburn that elevates the head of the bed to the medically recommended height of approximately 6”. Recently, I had the opportunity to speak with several of our satisfied customers who use the Reflux Guard© and experience significant relief from heartburn. In fact, some of them take the time to contact me and share how the Reflux Guard© has directly improved their lives.
First and foremost, I see myself as an inventor. My first invention was a retractable syringe. It was designed to prevent people from accidentally sticking themselves with contaminated needles and needlessly contracting HIV or other blood borne pathogens. I made this discovery in 1987, and subsequently received a patent (#4,900,311) for it. Eventually in 2000 President Clinton signed a law requiring the use of safer needle stick devices.
As an inventor, I focus on how I can improve other people’s lives. Some of the products I invented became game changers and have saved many lives. Currently I am focused on marketing my latest invention; a mattress wedge called Reflux Guard©. As I suffer severely from Acid Reflux, I designed and manufactured the first one for myself. My mission is to share the benefits I enjoyed from my mattress wedge, and to publicize it in order to help others receive the same benefits.
Let me share with you a recent story that explains why I am convinced that I have best job in the world. A few days ago I received a phone call from Jan (names are changed for privacy) asking me about Reflux Guard©. She saw a picture of it online and wanted to learn more. I explained her how the Reflux Guard© lifts the head of the bed 6” or higher based on the user’s need.
She told me a story about her friend Mandy whose husband has Parkinson Disease, and recently had a stroke. As a result of his neurologic problems, he can no longer swallow. Jan asked me to contact Mandy to tell her about Reflux Guard© and how it might help her husband. Mandy mentioned that the physician caring for her husband is greatly concerned, and would not release him from the hospital unless he has a 6” Mattress Wedge. This is the first time I ever heard about a patient whose discharge was dependent on receiving a product like mine.
Without hesitation, she ordered a Reflux Guard© and it shipped out that same day. Our conversation gave her great hope. The Reflux Guard© would not only hopefully help her husband rest better, but it will prevent him from developing pneumonia and other serious health problems as a result of his inability to swallow his oral secretions. As we finished our conversation, I could hear her holding back sobs. I told her that if she has any questions she should not hesitate to contact me.
Most of my dealings with Acid Reflux patients are not as dramatic, but I have had other occasions to speak with customers who are at their wits end because they cannot sleep comfortably at night.
GERD (Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease), a more severe form of Acid Reflux can disrupt daily activities thereby ruining the quality of life of those who suffer with it. I had the opportunity to speak recently to Mrs. Goldberg (name is real) who suffers horribly with GERD. She found our brochure at her doctor’s office. She purchased a Reflux Guard© mattress wedge, and it totally changed her life. She wrote us a beautiful thank you letter, which you can read in our testimonial section! I proudly display it there. After reading her letter you will better understand why I believe that I have the best job in the world. I appreciate all of your support.
