INSOMNIA AND ANXIETY and MyPILLOW®
MyPillow® Can Help You Discover a Great Nights Sleep!
50-70 million Americans suffer from sleep disorders. And, when you can't sleep it is a major problem to your whole quality of life. Suffering from fatigue and reduced attention are just a few of the prices you pay when you don't sleep well.
This guide (http://www.wfm.noaa.gov/pdfs/BenefitsGoodNightSleep_Handout2.pdf) from the US Department of Health and Human Services has some great information on sleeping and insomnia. In this guide, one of the many recommendations towards helping to promote a good night’s sleep is to have a comfortable mattress and pillow.
We're not saying that we cure insomnia, but we can help you have a more comfortable, restful nights sleep
Are you one of the 40 percent of all Americans who suffer from insomnia and anxieties?
In this video, Mike Lindell, CEO and Inventor of MyPillow®, talks about how he was one of the millions of people who have insomnia. He would flip flop all night long, or just stare at the ceiling, wide awake. If he was in bed for eight hours, he would wake up and still feel like he needed a nap. It was always a fight to get the sleep he needed.
That is why, years ago, he set out to do something about his sleeping issues. He knew that the pillow was the problem, so he invented the MyPillow®.
And, as he was doing shows years ago, he talked to veterans who were back from Iraq. They were attracted to the MyPillow® sign about insomnia and anxieties, and said, "You know what? We have some of the worst anxieties and insomnia problems in the world."
They all told him the same story. They would sit and stare at the ceiling no matter how long they had been up, and they wouldn't get to sleep for four or five hours. When they did get to sleep, they would be restless all night long. It was terrible for them.
So, as an experiment, Mike gave them MyPillows®. And, they came back the next day and all of them had the same story "Wow, I can get the great sleep I need." Two of them were almost crying. They were saying, "This is a miracle! This is a miracle." They were so happy that they all got to sleep right away. They slept through the night. The stories were the same across the board.
They asked, "How did this work? What's in this pillow?" Here's Mike's theory: You have eight cervical nerves on each side of your neck. Your cervical nervous system has to calm down before your muscles can relax, and then your blood flow slows, so you go into REM, and then delta sleep. You sleep without constant sleep interruptions.
You need to keep your cervical nerves straight at night in order to get this process to start. MyPillow® has a patented interlocking fill, a fill that, wherever you move the pillow, it stays there. And MyPillow® does the amazing thing of keeping your neck and cervical nerves straight at night.
Americans have an average of six pillows per person per household. You just keep buying pillows over and over and over again. But, you need a pillow that keeps your neck straight.
Four years ago, after another sleepless night, I saw the My Pillow commercial, and it was truly more than I could believe. I now never sleep without it - it continues to provide excellent spinal alignment in any sleeping position. My disease is systemic so I often have severe flair ups, and am unable to sleep in a consistent position. No matter my struggles, My Pillow has my neck and head in perfect alignment. I hope to be able to purchase the mattress topper this year. Sleep is the best medicine for my health. Thank you so much for this amazing creation I hope every person is able to enjoy My Pillow and enjoy sleeping again, waking up rested and rejuvenated to live another wonderful day!! My Pillow gave me back my life and hope, Thank you again! Brandy A.
I am less restless with this great pillow. Feel very well rested in the mornings. My shoulder is bad and THIS is the Goldilocks pillow for that too, just like David V. says. It's - just - right!! I have bone on bone in one knee. Perfect for that too. We don't need to FIGHT our pillows during the night, especially any injured areas. This is soooo great - and so user friendly! :) Thank you for this GREAT invention! Joanna J.
I am a senior who developed back pain sleeping in a "fetal" position. However, sleeping on my side, in a "legs straight" position, was uncomfortable and led to restless nights. I tried everything, until receiving My Pillow. Now I get a restful nights sleep with no backache. I sleep comfortably, on my side with legs straight out and no head or neck discomfort. It is so wonderful that I bought another set of My Pillows for our seasonal residence. Thank you for helping to make sleep enjoyable and painless once again! John M.
I love my pillow - it helps me sleep much better at night. It conforms to where I put it, and I don't have to keep readjusting like I did with my other pillows. I believe I pretty much lay in one spot all night. Tim T.
I asked for and received the My Pillow for Christmas and I haven't had a bad nights sleep since. I used to have trouble falling asleep as well as sleeping through the night. Ever since the first night on the My Pillow I have gotten nothing but but peaceful, restful sleep. Thanks for that! Shawn J.
I have MS and osteonecrosis (bone death), which caused huge sleep issues, since I could not get comfortable. I've had My Pillow for a month, and I have been sleeping all night. If I get tired during the day I will lie down and fall asleep because it's so comfortable. Thank you for this pillow. I was skeptical, but it really works. I would like to get a couple more to put in my sore areas (hip replacement). I have never written a testimonial because normally I accept what I get but this time I have found a product I can believe in! WOW! Christy
I've never had a pillow perform as well as this one does. Since ordering MyPillow a year ago, the problems I had with falling and staying asleep have virtually disappeared. When I do get up in the middle of the night, I fall right back to sleep, something that was a challenge for me before. After trying more than 2 dozen other brands over the years, I can finally say, "This is the one." Joe T.
I was skeptical about paying such a high price (high for me) for a pillow, but I had heard a lot of good things & David assured me that I could return the pillow. Well...that night, I slept like a baby AND I fell asleep soon after I laid my head on the pillow. My next purchase, when I can afford it, is a bed topper. I love my pillow!!! Veronica C.
I am not one to leave feedback for the most part, but I do have to say, after only two days with this pillow, I am sleeping better. I have had three shoulder surgeries and have been suffering with pain and numbness all night long for years. Now I sleep through the night! This pillow is amazing and am a life long believer and will tell everybody I know. Gary S.
I just had rotator cuff surgery on my left shoulder.. I could not sleep in bed for fighting with my pillow. It's a feather pillow. Slept on it all my life. But i had fought with it, wadding it up,trying to get where i could sleep. I ordered a large My Pillow for me and a small for my wife. Since I got my pillow i have slept the best i have in eight long weeks. Really i guess my whole life. The pillow fits to my head and shoulder to where I'm in line. I will not be without my pillow anymore. Regardless of where i go. It will go with me. I have told everyone i know about my pillow. It's better than any pillow i have ever tried to sleep on. All i can say thank you. Wish i had it a long time age. Also due to the surgery i have to sleep on my right side or my back since surgery was on my left shoulder and will for several more months. I now go to sleep and stay asleep. Thank You. I live in Bryson City, North Carolina. Larry R.
I love this pillow! I was turning and pounding my old pillow at least 4 to 5 times a night. Since buying this pillow, I haven't turned it once! It has stayed cool and fluffy. Even my breathing is better since my head stays up higher. Everything they advertise, is true. I highly recommend this pillow. Trish M.
For years I have slept on two pillows, and even those didn't lead to a solid night's sleep. Your one pillow was perfect the very first night! I have a very stressful occupation, but your pillow has provided me two and a half weeks of blissful sleep! I can't thank you enough! I genuinely look forward to going to sleep each night! Pam R.
My name is Geoffrey D’Aries. I am a 29 year old male with Cerebral Palsy confined to a wheelchair. Listening to the Imus in the morning program, I heard about a new wonderful product called My Pillow. I had been telling my parents that I wanted one for a Christmas present. It took a while for my parents to agree to get it for me. My parents were originally skeptical and said, what the heck is so great about a pillow. Imus was raving about how good the pillow is and about how much better his sleep is. Because I sit in my wheelchair all day, my neck and back get stiff. I also used to call my dad about 5 times a night to change my side while sleeping because I can’t roll over by myself. Since I have been using My Pillow, I need to call my dad much less, going to the Chiropractor less and sleeping much better. When I wake up in the morning, my neck and back feel much looser. The pillow stays cool all night which I like a lot. It has really changed my life. I have told so many of our friends and family, and many of them have purchased my pillows. Even when my dad goes on a business trip, he takes his my pillow and his press pack travel bag. He also loves his pillow. I am going on a trip to the Imus Ranch this summer and will definitely be taking my pillow. I will always use a my pillow for the rest of my life. My parents already promised me after my 10 year warranty runs out, they will always buy me these pillows for as long as I live. Thank you for improving my sleep which in turn improves my life. Thank you Mr. Lindell. Sincerely, Geoffrey D.
I recently bought My Pillow.I love it. I fall asleep faster and wake up rested.I got my boyfriend one as well for valentines. He loved it too. Best investment I have made in a while.Thank you. Donna C.
I have been tossing & turning for years -- waking up exhausted, stiff & sore. I thought it was my mattress. Before shopping for a new mattress, I saw a demo on this pillow and thought what the heck I'll try it first. I have been sleeping on it for a week and the difference it has made has been a miracle. One of the best purchases I have made in 66 years. Thank you so much. Eileen Y.
I had a massive brain tumor that had tenacles wrapped around my brain stem found in June of 2005. I am fully disabled from my circumstances. I have been able to overcome huge obstacles in my path. The one thing that I am left with is enduring pain in my neck and head. I got mypillow two days ago. Since then I have slept COMFORTABLY for the first time since way before I even knew that something was wrong with my health, which puts it back to around 2003. That means that I have had absolutely horrible sleep for almost 10 years. With MyPillow, I slept for almost 12 hours straight the first night. It was the best sleep I have ever had in my life. My head and neck didn't hurt! This pillow is much more than you realize. This is going to change my life. Sleep is what heals the body, mind, and spirit. I haven't had those things in such a long time that I had just relented to being the disabled woman that lives her life on a couch in pain. Thank you with all my heart for inventing something that is changing my life today. If I could I would have the pillows for my arms, legs, hips, and two or three just as the perfect prop me up. Sincerely & Thank you from the bottom of my heart; Lenoir K.
I've used mypillow for 2 weeks. I had 6 morning appointments & I was late for 3 of them, because i slept through the alarms. Also in the past I got up 1 or 2 times at night to go to the bathroom. With the exception of one time, I slept through the night without getting up. At first, I thought it was a coincidence. Now i know it's real. I have tried many pillows in the past. This is by far the best. Rob M.
I received my new pillow recently and love it. I have problems sleeping, yet slept great the first night I used mypillow. My other pillows always heated up, and I would be constantly flipping the pillow. I never have to flip this pillow. I thought it would be a nice idea to invent a pillow that transferred the heat and stayed cool, and did not realize there was such a pillow out there already. My pillow is not cheap, but I feel it was a great investment. Thank you. Leo D.
Bought 2 of these three months ago. My wife and I both love them. Best pillow I have EVER used. Just bought 4 more as presents. I used to suffer from frequent tossing and turning as my old pillows would "heat up". These don't. The only problem is, the cat loves them too. Steve A.
I am 60 years old and I have always had problems sleeping. I think in a way I had resigned myself to sleeping about 3 to 4 hours a night. It has been a week since I purchased the pillow & I can honestly tell you that since the first night I used it, I fell totally asleep within five minutes. I did not hear the ticking clocks, the cars outside my window, the dogs barking, and did not even go to the restroom all night long. I don't know why I waited so long to buy "MyPillow", but I can honestly tell you that it is my pillow now. And I can also tell you that even though I had never spent more than five dollars for a pillow, it is worth every penny I spent, since my first restful night of sleeping with MyPillow. I have been telling everyone I know not to waste any more time and get "MyPillow" for themselves. As for the other pillows on my bed, they are decorative pillows now. When I am getting ready to go to sleep, I toss them to the floor and the only pillow on my bed is MyPillow. Rosa C.
I'm a believer now. I've always had down pillows. I spent more money than you can imagine trying to get just the right one. I always wake up with a sore neck, and the first morning I could not believe it. It was gone. My mother-in-law wanted to try it. For two mornings, while she had it, I woke up with that dreaded sore neck. The third day, I made my husband go and take it away from her. This week we're going to the fair, and she's getting one, and I'm getting a king sized one so I can have my standard for my couch. I have to lay down a lot due to an illness. This pillow works!!!! I sleep a lot longer too, which is a first for me. Please don't ever stop making these pillows. I swear this is a true story. Oh, and I'm going to get the small travel pillow for the car so I can be comfortable there, too. Carol E.
Just got my pillow, and I love it. I just gave one to my grandson to try - and he loved it also. I won't do without it. I sleep so soundly, and I don't toss and turn all night - love it. I didn't believe it until I tried it - wonderful!! Everyone should have one!!! Myrna M.
I tossed and turned all night and slept on 2 and sometimes 3 pillows for years. Now that I have My Pillow. I sleep only on that pillow, and have a restful night's sleep. I really did not believe that it could work. Now I am getting friends and family to purchase My Pillow. Thank you Mike. Elly D.
I'm 70, and used to wake up 2-3 times nightly. Since the first night using your pillow ,I haven't had my sleep disturbed. I don't expect my minor aches and pains to vanish immediately. However, somehow I feel most of them will eventually. Most people have slept on the same mattress for 10-20 years, and during that time the "suspension" factor has given away and, as a result,, so does the support on various parts of your body (slowly over a long time period). When we buy a new mattress, our body, which has lost support through the years, is suddenly subjected to a force which is strange to us and we feel that the new mattress is to blame. You cannot put your body back to normal posture immediately, it takes time. These pillows are great and do continually bounce back to normal, they would make great mattresses. Joseph Z.
I love this pillow! We have tried all the different pillows from the club store. All went flat, no matter what material they were made of. I had a problem waking up at four or five in the morning, and I couldn't get back to sleep. I also had night sweats, (55 yr female). I no longer have these problems! I just ordered my husband his pillow. It is such a relief to finally find a pillow that's works for me. I'll say it again, I love this pillow!!! Try it! D. M.
As many people, I was very hesitant to try this pillow. I saw an advertisement on TV and thought about what people were saying about this "apparently" wonderful pillow. I wasn't too sure, but decided to give it a try. I bought two pillows, and could not believe how great they were. I slept like a baby for the first time in a long time. I just placed an order for four more. This pillow is unbelievable. I cannot believe that I settled for other pillows all these years. Thank you for creating such a wonderful pillow. I don't go anywhere with "my pillow". Shirley K.
I bought so many other pillows, and was never satisfied. I had a hard time getting to sleep and staying asleep. I was tired all the time! When I saw the commercial for My Pillow. I was skeptical. I was also desperate, so I ordered My Pillow. When I received My Pillow I didn't think it would work, so I saved the box to send it back in. I could not believe that the first night I used it, I slept all night. Needless to say, I would never send My Pillow back! It is the best pillow I have ever had. I have had it a few months and wouldn't part with it. It has really helped me get the sleep I need. My Pillow is worth every penny! It makes me sick to think about how much money I had spent on other pillows that I ended up throwing away every few weeks! Thank you soooo much for making My Pillow. I love mine! Candy M.
For more than two years, I have had trouble staying asleep. Then, to make matters even worse, a few months ago, I began to have numbness and an ache in both of my arms that only happened when I was sleeping. I went to the doctor, and he said that when I slept, something was pressing on the nerves in my neck which was causing the numbness and pain. Great. Now, not only could I not sleep through the night, but now I woke up with numbness and pain. My doctor recommended that I get a better/different pillow. I experimented with several pillows that I had at home. I used, a rounded pillow, my husband's pillow, my son's pillow...none of them helped. I went to the store and there were lots of pillows, but I didn't know which one to choose. I would have paid anything for the right pillow, but the problem was that I didn't know what the "right pillow" was, and if I used the pillow for awhile and it didn't work, I didn't think that the store would take the pillow back. One night, I couldn't sleep (as usual) and I saw the Infomercial for My Pillow. The pillow sounded great - but I am an attorney and therefore, a natural born skeptic. What made me decide to buy the pillow was the money back guaranty. I thought to myself, "they probably hope that whoever buys the pillow will not take the time and energy to return it if it doesn't work". But, I knew that if the pillow did not work, I was going to return that pillow. I was so anxious to try the pillow and perhaps, end the nighttime torture, that I found the pillow on sale at a home show near my house. The first night I slept on this pillow was the first night that I have slept through the night in YEARS. It was unbelievable. My skeptical side told me that it was just a coincidence, and that it couldn't be the pillow. But, I was wrong. I have slept on "My Pillow" for almost a week and I feel better and more rested than I have in a long time. This pillow really works. I am so in love with this pillow that I just ordered one to leave in our vacation home so I will always have the pillow to sleep on. I also bought a travel pillow to use on the plane and in a hotel. I don't have "my pillow", I have "my pillows"! I am so happy and I have been raving about this pillow to everyone. Thanks for a great product. Lynn S.
Let me tell you, Mike, that I am of the level of cynicism as to be eligible for an award. When I ordered MyPillow, it was as a long shot, last ditch effort bordering on despair. My two previous pillows were opposites. One fuller, firmer foam and the other a lighter, thinner stuffing type. Both would ride up the headboard nightly - each leaving an indentation flattened by where my head had been. Throughout the night, I would repeatedly awaken, readjusting and/or swapping pillows. I never felt rested, and often would remain in bed tired, frustrated and trying to get any further rest possible, rarely achieving that goal. The first night using MyPillow, I woke finding myself actually feeling AWAKE... and rested. The pillow at night is the same one at dawn, retaining it's shape entirely. I could immediately feel the difference in it's soft, gentle, fully supportive comfort - and no riding up the headboard! Absolutely impressed is far too euphemistic a term to describe my satisfaction. I've been spreading the word about your product with family, friends and coworkers. My Pillow is literally a dream come true. Edward F.
I've tried many pillows over the years because of my neck pain, but haven't found anything that worked. I was a little skeptical of the MyPillow, but I figured it's guaranteed, so I have nothing to lose. I received the pillow fairly quickly and saw instructions to not use anything other than regular pillow cases under 500 thread count. I was a little leery because I need a cool pillow - that's why I use satin pillow cases. But I followed the instructions and used a regular pillow case, and to my absolute Dee-Light, the pillow remained cool throughout the night AND I woke up with no neck pain. AND I only woke up twice vs. the normal 6-7 times I usually wake up. I didn't have to flip the pillow to the cool side at all - it was already cool. So, I highly recommend this pillow. It's very comfortable - it supports my neck. In fact, I just ordered one for my daughter. Do yourself a favor and try it !! Marlene L.
I bought your pillow for my husband who has had trouble finding a comfortable pillow. He would wake up frequently during the night, and also wake up in the morning with a stiff and sore neck. We would have a stack of pillows in our bedroom that he would periodically use. But after using your pillow, he says he no longer wakes up during the night and doesn't have a sore and stiff neck in the morning. Our stack of pillows is gone, too. Thank you!!!! Jackie B.
Ok. I haven’t had a good night’s sleep in months (years?), so I bought the pillow, as the infomercial looked interesting. It is not cheap. There are better value pillows on the market, but I thought I would give it a try. It arrived when it was supposed to, very good service. The pillow looked cool tightly wrapped in the shipping wrapping, and I was surprised when it opened up to be the large pillow I ordered. The first night was not too comfortable. It seems hard to me but I was not going to criticize the pillow after just one night. Well, something strange started to happen. I started to wake up in the morning not knowing what happened during the night. Instead of tossing and turning, I am sleeping right through. I have had it a couple weeks now, and I am pleased to tell you I no longer stay up late at night looking at infomercials. This pillow is awesome. I have no idea how Michael came up with this idea about this pillow but it is a life saver. Here is one bench mark that tells me that the pillow works. On my 45 minute drive home from work I would have to have some sort of snack to keep me awake during the drive. I no longer need it! I know this may sound weird but I am getting better quality and more good sleep and this old body of mine is operating as designed! THANK YOU MICHAEL AND EVERYONE AT MYPILLOW. Lou C.
For years, I have had trouble sleeping. I would go to bed at 10 pm and lightly sleep until 1 or 2 am and have to get out of bed because I was wide awake. Over the past 5 years, I have purchased at least 8 different sets of pillows. Some firm, some soft, but all produced the same result, which was no increase in the amount of time I was able to sleep. I saw the infomercial for MyPillow during one of my many sleepless nights. I even went on line and did more research. However I was still not convinced. I met Thom at this home show and decided to see if the pillow was as advertised. Thom proceeded to explain how and why MyPillow works and why it would help me sleep. I told him I would buy it but would bring it back the next day if I did not sleep. He told me he "Guaranteed" I would love it or he would take it back. That very first night I slept through the entire night and, since my head was well supported, woke up with zero neck pain - and felt more rested than I have felt in years. The MyPillow is the real deal. I bought one for my wife and told at least 10 people the next day to go buy this pillow. I am sold! Wayne K.
Love MyPillow, it is AWESOME! Can sleep through the night, no more flipping the pillow all night long, no more neck aches. I'm the type of person that doesn't get excited about much, but damn excited after the first night of sleep with MyPillow. It is so comfortable, just love it! Thank you. Ken S.
