What causes your sleepless nights? 


Do you know?
Most people don’t know why they toss and turn at night, but according to WebMD, nighttime pain is one of the top reasons for disturbed sleep. In fact, the pain doesn’t have to be severe enough to wake you up, any level of pain can cause sleep disturbance because it reduces the amount of time spent in the deep REM stages of sleep. Ever wake up with aches and pains you didn't realize you had? There you go- it came out in the night!

Ever wake up with a back ache and wonder, WHERE did that come from, I slept for 8 hours like a log?

You may have slept, but were you 
sleeping with the right pillow, to give you with the necessary spinal support, to keep you from having back pain?

AHA, probably not!

I recently had the opportunity to try out a new pillow that says it can alleviate waking with back pain!

The Proper Pillow combines comfort, corrective, and rejuvenating therapeutic properties, optimizing neck and spinal alignment and eliminating tireless nights. The low density orthotic mold shapes to each sleeper with the ideal amount of support, and the low density foam allows your body to perfectly fit the pillow as it maintains its supportive shape.

The Proper Pillow was designed and created by San Diego chiropractor, Dr. Rick Loos, to reduce back pain, neck pain and headaches caused by improper sleeping positions.

Does it work like it says?

Yes indeedy!

I have used the pillow for over 2 weeks now and I can state that I get my BEST night's sleep and wake up with ZERO pain when I use The Proper Pillow!

WHY?

Did you realize this is what happens with a normal pillow? I never did!

Now the only problem I've had is that I have acid reflux issues, and leaving the pillow flat as it is shown above, is actually not high enough, and actually still causes me reflux. I tried swapping the pillow around, as one side has a higher side, than the other, to help with the support, but it didn't work. I have a super flat pillow that I put under The Proper Pillow, and it seems to give me just the needed extra 1/2 inch to keep the reflux down. While this is not the recommended use for The Proper Pillow, it is what works for me. So do keep that in mind if you have AR also. 

Another thing that I really love is:

the proper pillow layers

it's STAY COOL COMFORT LAYER!

The comfort layer REALLY allows for continuous airflow, which does create a relaxing and cooling effect. For those going through peri-menopause/menopause, or who just get hot at night, this is a wonderful added feature!


I know exactly when my spine is aligned correctly on the pillow-I have the sudden felling of floating, like my head is on a cloud. The best analogy I can give you is that it is like throwing yourself on a super super thick duvet on a bad, and that sinking AH feeling you get! When I have that position, I know my spine is aligned, as I can feel my entire back RELAX. After a couple of days on the pillow you know what to feel, and your body will automatically adjust to the right position on the pillow. 



I can tell the difference immediately when I don't use The Proper Pillow (which I have to do when the pillow thief Miss Grace sleeps with me)- I have a hard time trying to get the proper position on a regular pillow and getting comfortable. The next morning? Yup, back pain will be back. You can guarantee that the next night, I'm using my Proper Pillow again!

You can order The Proper Pillow on their website, and when you do, you also get 5 bonuses, or you can order on Amazon! The pillow may be pricey, BUT trust me- waking up with NO pain and lots of energy is worth every penny! 


The best part? 
The Proper Pillow comes with a 60 day guarantee that you'll get the best sleep ever. AND the pillows have a 10 year warranty. When was the last time a PILLOW had that?

  1. I've had neck pain for at least a year, so I can relate. I'm glad you found something that works for you!
