I’m a light sleeper. It doesn’t take me more than a gust of wind to wake up. But that’s mostly because of this chronic neck pain I have. I’ve tried changing my pillow several times but to no avail. After a day or two, the pain creeps back in and I go back to my disturbed sleep state every night.
I was ready to give up and resign myself to a fate of poor sleep at this point in my life. Not getting any sweet slumber was really starting to affect my life though. My work performance had taken a hit and so had my interpersonal relationships. I guess my mum saw that too and so she decided to gift me OMVED’s Buckwheat Pillow as a solution to my problem.
At first, I was skeptical. I had used several pillows before and I saw no reason why the OMVED pillow would work. I decided to try it out, since my mum had gotten it for me. I used it for two weeks straight and guess what?
I got the best sleep I’ve gotten in years!
Before the OMVED Buckwheat Pillow, I had tried several orthopedic pillows. I had never tried a buckwheat one. In fact, I didn’t even know that buckwheat pillows existed before this. I wish I had known sooner about these as I wouldn’t have lost all those years of precious sleep.
Talking about the OMVED Buckwheat Pillow, it is actually made of real buckwheat! After I got one, I did some research on it and found out that most brands sell pillows that do not contain the highest quality buckwheat but claim to do so anyway. I felt I was really lucky to get OMVED’s pillow as it is made from the highest quality hulls! OMVED does not use flattened hulls as they do not have the same effect.
What’s more, the hulls used by OMVED have been sourced from buckwheat grown without the use of pesticides and other harsh chemicals, which makes it really pure in my opinion, and probably that’s the thing that helped sort out my sleep issues.
OMVED, in fact, pays special attention to the way they make their pillows. They not only use the highest quality hulls but they also clean them thoroughly by passing them through a dust ventilator several times, so that all kinds of foreign particles are filtered out.
If a company pays so much attention to the making of its pillows, it’s no surprise then that the pillow actually works! In my two weeks with it, I’ve noticed a significant reduction in my neck pain. The stiffness in my neck has decreased now, and it’s actually become easier for me to sit for long hours, and type on my computer. Like I did for this review.
One of my most favorite features of this pillow is the way it has been contoured in the neck region. It comes with a special neck-roll which provides immense support to my neck as I sleep. The fact that unbleached cotton has been used as the outer case means that it’s one of the very few pillows that haven’t caused me any allergies and have actually proven to be very comfy.
I also like that there’s a zipper to adjust the pillow size. I never thought a pillow could be so customizable but I’m glad the OMVED Buckwheat Pillow is. Because the one-size-fits-all approach really doesn’t work for everyone.
The OMVED Buckwheat Pillow is not only helpful in managing neck pain, but can also improve sleep, help with reducing the migraine effects and help you sleep better, and reduce allergies among many other things.
I’m told it is also recommended by chiropractors and physiotherapists to aid in cases of sleeplessness, allergies, to reduce headaches, TMJ syndrome, cervical and lumbar subluxations, etc.
I’m definitely sticking with this pillow and I’d say you should get one too if sound sleep is what you desire.
