Cystic Fibrosis Reviews on Buckwheat Hull Pillows
01/28/2013: L. Lawrenson
"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."
