  1. I have been experiencing extreme hair loss since taking prescribed medication and treatments following a severe workplace injury leaving me disabled and unable to work. Several other health issues have risen as well.Being on disability limits anything I purchase. I am looking forward to trying this method in the worst way especially if it can be purchased while I’m on disability!

  2. Hi- Thank you for this information! I just ordered the pillow and can’t wait to use it! I’ve been waking up with neck problems lately because the pillow I’m using isn’t properly supporting my neck. Hopefully later down the line I will be able to get a mattress. I’m buying a wake up light too! Here’s to better sleep 🙂

    • Loved this article. Thanks for the great information! Happy to have found this helpful website. Does anyone know where I can get that free wake up light? It says in the article to look at the bottom of this article but I am not seeing it anywhere. Would love to get one. Thanks so much! 🙂

  3. The Intellibed looks awesome, especially since it is used in hospitals to help heal bed sores.
    I decided I could afford the 3″ twin topper for $349 or could use the free financing and get a 6″ twin topper at $649 (plus a seat cushion).

    When I called to order the the 6″ topper, I was told it had been discontinued due to some quality issues and that the 3″ was now priced at $649. An 85% increase of $300!
    That was a shock, so I put the whole idea aside and looked at other options.
    I reconsidered because of the 10% discount, the money-back guarantee and the free light (didn’t want the pillow),
    I called again and was told that the mattress toppers did not include the free pillow and wake-up light — seems that extra $300 that was added in less than a week’s time should cover something.

    I hesitated again, but listened to a video that they emailed to me and it was pretty impressive, so I bit the bullet and ordered a 3″ topper since they pay the shipping back.
    Thanks, Lauren, for arranging the 10% off, which will cover the S&H for my order, so I won’t lose anything if I decide to return it.
    I hope it’s as good a product as they claim. But making that big of a price jump in the middle of a promotion, after I had already seen the original price, and there was no warning of an increase, and they acknowledged but refused to honor the price I had seen, seems a bit greedy, and most certainly poor customer service.

    A Happy and Healthy New Year to all of us., Kay


  5. Dear Lauren,

  8. Hi, I’ve been reading your posts and am loving everything I’m finding on your website so THANK YOU!
    But I was looking on the websites for intellibed and found the all wool mattresses. I was wondering what you thought about those? I was actually more interested in the all wool ones than the intelliBED so if you can give me your input I would really appreciate it, thanks!

  9. I bought one of their pillows because it highly came recommended by you and it was such a waste of money. I tried to get used to it but it was so uncomfortable and gave me neck problems and I couldn’t sleep. I tried to adjust the pillow with no luck. I requested a refund by the company but they said NO, sorry we don’t take back pillows, you’re out of luck! Worst customer service ever! Not even a partial refund! SO glad I didn’t buy a mattress!!

  10. Hey there! I you’re suffering from insomnia let me tell you somenthing that worked really great for me 🙂

    Two months ago my life changed completly, I got fired from my job and two days later my boyfriend left me for another girl. By that time my head was full of thoughts and my nights started to be a nightmare, sleeping an average of two or three hours a night, leaving me tired and unable to concentrate the rest of the day.

    Two weeks ago I came across this website:, like you will see they promise you to “get 8 hours of unbroken deep sleep” using audio recordings. At that time I was really desperate and decided to give it a try… Thanks to god I’ve done that! I don’t really understand what this audio recordings contain (they’re so relaxing) but when I play them i fall asleep in minutes, they help me to keep my mind clear and without thoughts.

    I wanted share this because I know how fustrating can be having insomnia and if this worked for me probably will work for you too 🙂

    Hope this can be helpful for someone 😀

  11. Sleeping surface is the most important thing towards a healthy sleep which affects our body and mind. A natural-organic surface is always appreciable. Avoid mattresses that are made of petroleum-based polyester, nylon and polyurethane foam and treated with flame-retardant chemicals like boric acid, silicone and phosphates etc as these very toxic and bad for health. Change your sleeping surface from toxic to natural and organic one. Feel the effect and quality sleep. Choose bedandwood to get the right one.
