Apart from the right side or the left side, there are other sleeping positions like lying with your tummy on the floor, lying with your face up. These sleeping positions may be convenient for some people but they have its own side effects too.
For example, lying with face-up does not aid digestion. The food may regurgitate while sleeping and go the wrong way. I have seen many people jerking up from their sleeping and coughing uncontrollably because the food came up and wanting to choke them.
That is not what we are here for by the way. We are here for what happens when you sleep on your left side.
