I'm so excited to bring you this review and giveaway compliments of Mediflow! If you're plagued by any type of neck or shoulder pain, then this is the pillow for YOU! Mediflow actually refers to the waterbase pillow as a sleep system, rather then "just" a pillow.
The way the Mediflow Waterbase Pillow works, is that under the plump, soft, polyester fill it has a waterbase on the bottom. The fill in the pillow, has a special finish on it to keep it plump and cloud-like and makes the pillow long-lasting andwashable! The waterbase of the bottom of the pillow, gives your neck continuous support that you can't get with a traditional pillow. The great thing is, the user can adjust the amount of water for the unique support that their own body needs. After you get the amount of water adjusted, the system will support your neck and spine while you sleep, even as you're turning over or switching sides!
Now, if you're anything like me, you're probably wondering if trying to fill the pillow is a big hassle or not. The day my Mediflow Waterbase Pillow arrived I was so excited to try it out that night, but I was also a nervous wreck that I wouldn't be able to fill it and that I'd make a big mess trying to fill it. You can see in the photo above, that the pillow comes with a little funnel type thing. You stand the pillow upright on a chair, insert the funnel, and then poor in the amount of water that you've decided to try. Once you have the water in it, you run your hands down the pillow until you hit the water area, to push excess air out, then insert the cap to seal it shut. By doing this step, it keeps the pillow from making a "sloshing" sound when you turn over. If you hear the water, then you don't have all of the air out of it! That's it! Super easy! I studied the water chart and measured out the amount of water I thought I'd need, and then tried the pillow. It felt amazing to me, but I still needed just a bit more support. I just added a little bit more, and it was perfect!
You don't have to take my word for it though, nor do you have to just take Mediflow's word. John Hopkins Hospital conducted a neck pain and quality of sleep study, and the Mediflow Waterbase Pillow ranked the best out of all pillows tested! The Mediflow pillow helped to reduce pain patients felt upon waking, it increased their pain relief, and it also improved their quality of sleep! As a person who suffers from a severe case of Fibromyalgia, I can attest how hard it is to get quality sleep when you do sleep. Insomnia is a horrible beast of Fibromyalgia that plagues me. It's also been proven that people with Fibromyalgia never get into a good sleep cycle. In my honest opinion this pillow is worth it's weight in gold! I'll never ever own another pillow again. After just one night of sleeping on the Mediflow Waterbase Pillow, I knew that they'd convinced me! Therefore, I'm excited to bring a giveaway to you all, so that you'll have a chance to win your own Mediflow Waterbase Pillow!
