  1. Thank you for the thorough review. I’m not at all familiar with this mattress but I am interested. Forgive me if you have already answered this …… Is there a place you can actually try out the mattress? Some kind of storefront? Thank you!

    • I know Dr. Mercola believes that traditional metal coils can “concentrate” EMFs. I haven’t seen this discussed other places. I use a lot of other materials in my home to reduce my EMF burden (including turning off WiFI at night, using an EMF canopy, not using a wireless phone in my house, using stertzerizer filters, etc) so I rest in peace, pun intended 🙂

  2. Hi Lauren! I’m really interested in intelliBED but I live in Canada. I’d like to make a healthier mattress choice and am wondering what might be the next best choice, material wise or company?

  3. Hello,
    Thank you for this thorough review! We are in the market for a mattress. Would you also consider a natural latex mattress? Do you have a preference between the two options?

  4. I have seen your posts about this mattress in the past & this time I was actually prepared to pull the trigger & purchase but my husband got online & found the ‘bad’ reviews (including the blogger that hated the mattress) & I read comments about the metal coils & soy that confused me further. Are you still feeling well sleeping on yours? I guess the internet can be overwhelming & I need further vote of confidence.

  5. I just wanted to chime in and say that I purchased an intellibed mattress for my daughter about a year and a half ago, based mostly on Lauren’s recommendation. I had looked into organic mattresses and the prices were crazy. My daughter has asthma and allergies and had no problem. It is extremely comfortable, and the customer service was amazing…several phone calls after we received it to make sure we were happy. The next time I am in need of a mattress I won’t look anywhere else.

  6. The pillow casings and mattress top were NOT organic cotton. The scent of the pillows was so bad I had to throw them out.. how can there be this big of a discrepancy in reviews? The soy/polyurethane foam gave me the biggest headache, and I would never ever recommend this to someone with chemical sensitivities (which I developed after falling for an “honest” review of the essentia mattress from wellness mama, which was full of chemicals and formaldehyde). It shows you testing a picture of the intellibed silicon for VOCs which is yes, a non toxic substance, but I didnt see a picture of you testing near the foam..? Even if untreated, polyurethane is a petroleum by product and releases VOCs. Things arent adding up and it’s dissapointing to find such high reviews from our “trusted” bloggers. You’re young and smart Lauren, dig a little deeper to find what’s going on and be honest, the world needs it.
