I knew I had needed a new pillow for a while. I used the curved foam pillows with neck support for years but it wasn't doing anything for me any more. I had constant neck issues and at after a 3-day headache I finally decided to try it. They said give it 5 nights, but I was sold after 1! I woke up the next morning and had more mobility in my neck than I'd had for weeks! I haven't had a headache since I started using it 2 weeks ago. It provides great neck support. The smell was a bit earthy but I didn't think it was bad, just used a good pillow protector and don't even notice it. My husband has a gel pillow and when it was new, we had to put it in a different room for a week until the smell and off-gassing subsided. I have already recommended it to several friends!

Since using the buckwheat pillow I've noticed a big difference. I haven't had neck pains since and I seem to sleep longer stretches. Would recommend it.

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.

Over the last several years I have tried various types and sizes of pillow, but I couldn't stay comfortable on any of them and kept waking up with a stiff neck. This pillow is amazing! I watched the video before using it, fluffed it up, and closed my eyes .... I adjusted to the pillow right away, slept soundly all night, and best of all, a woke without a crick in my neck. I am a very satisfied customer!

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!!!

Really good pillow if you have any neck pain and/back pain They accomodate to your body needs.
Your buckwheat hull pillow is in fact the 'perfect pillow'! After seeing a huge improvement in my sleep and in no longer having a sore neck upon waking. I have raved to my family members. Now my entire family uses your natural pillows too.
I was in a serious auto accident in 2007 which left my shoulders, neck, head, ears and jaw in pain 24/7. I was at the International Plowing Match and purchased my buckwheat hull pillow.Usually I use a scooter outside about 90% of the time, but the other day I spent walking from 10 a.m to 5 p.m.! Yesterday was the first time in 15 months that I was pain free and was still pain free at the end of the day. Thank God and you for this product.
My husband and I bought two buckwheat hull pillows from you about a month ago. My husband had been suffering from a sore neck for almost a week, and I was bothered by frequent headaches. I had a suspicion that my headaches had something to do with my pillow, as I often felt ousy in the morning. Well, holy cow! The soreness in my husband's neck was almost gone the following morning and after another night, was completely gone. I have been sleeping through the night without having to get up two or three times, and feeling so much better in the morning. I'm not tossing and turning all night now, plus I have not had one of those headaches since using the pillow. We will be travelling soon and can't imagine going without our "buckwheats". Many thanks to you.

"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 bought your pillow 2 years ago and with 3 days my neck pain disappeared and I had better mobility side to side. Last week I left my pillow while visiting my mother out of town. It took about a week for the pain to return. Picked up my replacement pillow yesterday and I am sure my neck will get back to normal soon!"
My husband and I have tried many pillows. Your buckwheat hull pillow has allowed us to get rid of sore, stiff necks. Better sleeps. I very rarely use my CPAP anymore.
This buckwheat hull pillow has done wonders for me. For months I was seeing a therapist for my neck. They offered me many gadgets to help me sleep at night, but nothing worked. Now with my 'perfect pillow' I have a good nights sleep.
I suffered from a whiplash injury and am unable to take anti-inflammatories. This buckwheat hull pillow has significantly improved my neck. I believe it should be covered under the government health plan.
Since we had tried numerous types of pillows without ever finding one that would not leave us with neck pains or other sleep related complaints, we decided to give your buckwheat hull pillow a try. At first my wife tried it, but then felt it was not quite rigth for her, leaving it to me, and after trying down and foam and all sorts of things, I suddenly found myself having a good sleep. My wife finally admitted that after i get up in the mornings, she would grab my buckwheat hull pillow and then have the best sleep of the night. Well, low and behold, we both liked it so much that the other day we came back for seconds. Now I am no longer kept awake by my wife's occasional snoring and she sleeps like a baby. You have a good product and I'm sure we are not the only ones who came back for more as you had predicted we would.

"Just wanted to drop a line to add my testimonial to your long list of happy customers. I've just bought my second buckwheat hull pillow and can't thank you enough for the wonderful product you make. I, like so many others, suffered from neck and shoulder pain for years. Physio and massage was slow to help me - if at all. The pain always returned. Once I started using your buckwheat hull pillow, I noticed an improvement within a couple of weeks. If I travel and forget to take it with me, I start aching again. My husband laughs at me hauling this pillow around with me, but what can I say: it works!"
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 was complaining about a sore neck for a long time and finally went to my doctor and he recommended I get this buckwheat hull pillow. He called it the 'perfect pillow'and had bought one for himself and it cured him. So now he is recommending to his patients when they complain about pain in their neck or back. It sure has done wonders for me.

"I took my buckwheat hull pillow into the operating room for a 9 hour procedure on my heart. I have chronic neck pain and couldn't have survived the surgery without my pillow. As a result, I had no neck pain, no headaches or stiffness after the procedure."

"I am writing to thank you greatefully for the relief I have enjoyed since beginning to use your buckwheat hull pillow just a week ago. I have suffered daily from neck and shoulder pain for the past 3 years, probably due to bad sleeping posture and daily computer use. In an attempt to find relief over the years, I sought ergonomic assessments of my workstation, massage therapty treatments and specialized exercise classes. Although all those efforts did help, only your 'perfect pillow' was able to eliminate the pain. I am comfortable for the first time in a long time. Thanks so much!"
A great pillow! I have a decaying disk in my neck - the buckwheat hull pillow really helps support it. It is also very cool - does not get hot as most pillows do. I highly recommend it to anyone with neck problems.

"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!"

"Congratulations on a fine product! I personnaly am now enjoying no more neck pain since using your pillows and am enthusiastically recommending them in my practice. Thank you and good luck."

"I am writing to congratulate you both for such a wonderful product. I purchased two buckwheat hull pillows last year at Christmas and I cannot say enough about this pillow. After years of waking up every morning with a sore neck, I began to think this was normal for me. I was told by you it would take awhile to adjust to sleeping with the hull pillow but I have to say after one night, I could not believe the difference. They provide excellent support for the head and neck and to this day I have not had a sore neck. What a relief! I purchased the travel pillow this year, I think it will be wonderful in the car. I have recommended your buckwheat hull pillows to many of my friends and they are also very satisfied. I thank you again for giving me pain free sleep, and I think anyone who has not tried your buckwheat hull products should not hesitate. I just wish I had known about your buckwheat hull pillow year ago. Keep up the excellent work!"

"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!"

"Your buckwheat hull pillow is indeed perfect! My wife and I no longer suffer from chronic neck pain and headaches. We also use the smaller version in our dental office. Our patients love them during those long appointments. Many thanks."
10/19/1999: Dr. B. Pringle, MD, The Ottawa Hospital, General Campus - Division of Neurology
"Thank you for providing me with some of your buckwheat hull pillows. I have distributed them to some patients with myasthenia gravis and resultant neck pain. Patients I have followed up with report significant improvement in their symptoms of neck pain and headache. While this obviously does ot represent a controlled trial, I was impressed"
05/25/1999: Dr. C. Oullette, D.C.
"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."
05/12/1999: Dr. F. Smith, B.Sc., D.C., Smith Falls Family Chiropractic
"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."
04/28/1999: Dr. G. B. Wexler, DDS, Diplomate, American Board of Orofacial Pain
"I have had the opportunity now to try your buckwheat hull pillow. I, personally, can recommend this pillow very highly. It has eliminated significant neck and shoulder pain for me. As you are aware I have used these pillows with my TMJ (Tempromandibular Dysfunction) and orofacial patients. Many of them have found significant relief from using buckwheat hull pillows especially when symptoms were related to dysfunction of the cervical region. These pillows have now provided me with an additional tool that I can use to assist in pain relief for my patients. I recommend them very highly."

"I am a patient of Dr. R. nelson who treats me for migraines. I was one of those fortunate enough to have been offered one of your buckwheat hull pillows to try. I thought "what the heck - why not?" I have had my pillow for about 6 months now and I wouldn't part with it for anything. it has greatly reduced the number of migraines as well as helped with neck pain. I love it and thank you very much for allowing me to try it."
