Back Pain Reviews on Buckwheat Hull Pillows

I love love love my buckwheat pillow. A friend convinced me to buy one, and I have no regrets. I've got a lot of neck and arm nerve pain from a herniated disc. The pillow offers perfect support, even allowing me to sleep on my side. I think I'll love it even more when I'm not in pain.

I used to own one before, but somehow lost it. After only 1 night, my neck and backpain were gone. I am recommending this pillow and this site to my friends and everyone else that wants to hear about it. the service is absolutely fabulous. Thank you.

I have been using Buckwheat pillows for over 20 yrs. I purchased you pillow several years ago from you at Carlingwood Mall when I was visiting my sister(who used to call it my oat pillow) Your pillow was far superior to the one I was using. I suffered a spinal cord injury and your pillow has helped me immensely. No more headaches every morning and less pain in back and neck. Best of all my sister used it once and no longer calls it my oat pillow and drove to your place and bought one for herself!!!
I love my buckwheat pillow....so does my husband !! It has improved our sleeping so much. My face is always cool and I wake up without any kinks in my neck, shoulders and back!!

"I purchased my first buckwheat pillow just recently and I can not depart with it now. I have cystic fibrosis so I have chronic back, shoulder and neck pain from coughing and not being able to breath well. After having the pain for about two years, i have tried every solution known: hot packs, creams and medication, only go so far. I thought that it was time to try something different and more natural.
After reading articles in the local paper and having others refer this pillow to me, I thought it was time to try it. For its long life span, it is definitely worth it's value. My hardest challenge was getting used to sleeping with my arms down from my head to allow the pillow to provide the support the instead. I always used my arms to help elevate my head to make it easier to breathe. The crunchy noise took a night or two to get used to.
I went away last weekend and I did not bring my pillow. We ended up coming home a day early because I was so uncomfortable sleeping the first night away.
I am copying my nurse coordinator at the Cystic Fibrosis Clinic to show how much I am satisfied with this product. There are many patients like me who are aching every night. We are all Olympic champions at coughing!
Currently, my shoulders are starting to relax and lower from being so tight and raised upwards. My headaches have reduced by half and I'm sleeping much deeper."
"I have been using your pillow for about 2 years now, and I wouldn't sleep omn ANY other pillow! I have asthma, and cannot use a feather pillow. I have also suffered from lower back pain and find that your pillows have helped me to get a good nights sleep. No more constantly waking up in pain! Money well spent, thank you very much!"
Several years ago I purchased your buckwheat hull pillow and have enjoyed good sleep ever since. Prior to using this perfect pillow, I wasn't sleeping well, snoring, plus was having neck and back issues. I tried several different pillows but the only one to help was your buckwheat hull pillow. This has saved me countless doctor visits and other medical attention from just switching to this incredible 'perfect pillow'.

"I purchased a regular size buckwheat hull pillow when you were selling them at the Civic Hospital. I just wanted to let you know that I love it. As a health care provider, I would recommend it to anyone who has neck and/or upper back problems as I do. It took no time for me to get used to it and I particularily like that it is so sanitary, as I also have allergies. An elderly patient of mine bought one and she loves it. A co-worker was given one by her physiotherapist for a neck injury and she also loves it. I must have at least 10 other orthopedic pillows in my closet that I can't use. I just wish I would have found this product first. It is very economical too, costing only about $5-$8 per year. Your perfect pillow has also reduced the number of headaches I get; I used to wake up with one every morning and I rarely have them now!"

"I recently bought one of your large buckwheat hull pillows for myself. To give you my history, I broke my back 26 years ago at the age of 21 and had suffered since then with neck and back pain. I have paid many visits to the doctor and chiropractor for relief and had tried other chiropractic pillows. They worked for a while, but then they flattened out and no longer offered any relief. I admit I wasn't sure a buckwheat hull pillow was the answer to my problem, but I was at the point where I felt desperate to find relief. I bought your pillow on a Friday and tried it that night expecting it to take a week to adjust to it, but to my amazement and utter relief, I slept soundly and woke up with my neck not in a knot! I have always been quite stiff between the head and shoulders and was always aware of fatigue and strain in my neck but I now have complete relief and can't wait to go to bed at night! I have since bought a buckwheat hull pillow for my mother who sufferes from DDD (Degenerative Disk Disease) an my husband who wanted to find out what I was raving about-needless to say, he enjoys his pillow immensely. I would personally like to thank Irene and Judy for caring enough to make these perfect pillows available for those who suffer from various problems. A good night's rest with less pain does wonders!"
"Wow, what a perfect pillow! My back hasn't bothered me since the first night I used it. My neck, which has been quite troublesome for over a year, has improved almost 100% and I have all but given up my cane, except for long walks just in case I feel the need. I recommend buckwheat hull pillows."
"Thank you for the informative visit today. I participated in a 6 week chronic pain management program the The Rehabilition Centre last August and September through the Occupation Therapy Dept. I was introduced to buckwheat hull pillows. After several nights I knew that I liked it because it conformed so nicely to the shape of my neck. I found it was so comfortable compared to all the other pillows I had tried. I'm very thankful for a pillow that supports my neck and feels so neat. God has blessed you with a wonderful idea and business. Thanks for all your hard work."

Your 'perfect pillow' brightens up my mornings.. and the rest of my day (and my family's). For years I have been plagued with migraines or headaches when I wake up. For the past 3 weeks, I have not experienced that type of feeling when I first open my eyes.. and that is when I started sleeping on your buckwheat hull pillow. No more 'dislocated' jaw wither in the morning. The only problem? Our daughters keep stealing it for themselves. Usually I wait until they are asleep to take back "the" pillow. Last night, one of our daughters took it, and I did not have the courage to take it back, as she has back problems. This afternoon, when she came back from school she told me: "My back was not sore when I woke up this morning. I need a perfect pillow too." Her sister also wants one. So, I bought two more today. I will probably be back once my husband tries it too. Thank you very much for "the" perfect pillow."

"We have been recommending your buckwheat hull pillows to our patients with spinal misalignment. We are more thatn satisfied with the results. The buckwheat hull pillows provide a good support to the natural curve of the neck and most of all conform to many different neck sizes."

"I introduced your buckwheat hull pillow to my practice approx. 1 year ago. During this time period I saw enough benefit to change my pillow recommendations. Currently, I almost exclusively recommend your buckwheat hull pillow to patients. Compliance with orthopedic pillows is traditionally low, however, i have experienced roughly 95% compliance rates with this product. Overall, combining the buckwheat hull pillow with treatment for neck related conditions has resulted in very positive results. I feel that this product is outstanding for maintaining correct sleeping posture for people of all ages and problems. This is largely due to the product's ability to adapt to every neck in virtually every sleeping position. it subtly offers a very firm support for cervical spine without sacrificing comfort. To date I have seen nothing but positive results from your buckwheat hull pillow and will continue to endorse it as my recommended sleeping device."

Suffering from thoracic outlet syndrome and I get great relief with this pillow after only 3 nights of use.
