The Best Kept Secret For Sleeping Better

You clicked on this because you are interested in what my solution is. But first, I want to know a little about you.

You might have neck pain from an old injury, or a car accident, or maybe you have just been rough on your body.

I have a few questions for you

  • Do you wake up with neck pain day after day?
  • Have you tried everything to eliminate your neck pain and think you can do nothing?

Maybe you are like me, and your c-spine starts spasming every month or two, and you think it’s something you have to live with.

Well, you might be happy to know that I might have the solution you have been looking for.

My Storyvehicle-crash-front-end-damage

For me, it all started after being in a car accident. I could go into detail, but what resulted from this accident has haunted me every day since.

I was in a neck brace for months. The doctors told me to roll up a towel, put it on my pillow, and sleep like that.

Well, being a side sleeper, this was not a great option. But it was better than nothing.

It didn’t take long for me to try to use the towel and sleep on my back, only to wake up on my side with a locked-up neck.

After months like this, my doctor sent me to a massage therapist, which helped but didn’t solve my issue—always having a stiff and locked-up neck.

I lived like this for a few years. I had limited movement and lots of pain, stopped going to the massage therapist due to the cost, and tried everything I could get my hands on.

After spending money on countless pillows, I found a solution that worked for me.

It was a pillow.

You might think that is ridiculous, but it worked wonders for me. If you really think about it, estimating 8 hours a day is spent sleeping. You need to have a supportive pillow for your head if you want to sleep better and not wake up with a stiff neck.

I eventually gave up my pillow after about 10 years. I went back to the memory foam pillow. And guess what happened? My spasms came back. That leads to having pain in the neck. I dealt with it for a few more years until a friend at work started expressing always had similar issues.

It’s funny that I remembered the pillow from years ago and told him about it. He was hooked, and we started searching the internet for it. I was pleased to find it on Amazon, and he ordered one immediately.

After using the pillow for a few nights, he told me something remarkable…he said his neck pain had gone away, and he hadn’t slept that great in years.

I then ordered one for myself and could not be happier. I’m feeling so great, haven’t had any spasms in months, and wanted to share it with others.

Other Options

Before we get into what this pillow is, I want you to think about all the things you have tried to do.

You might have done what I did, with the towel for support, taken medication, gotten massages, and so on. But did that solve your problem? Did you wake up a few days later with a stiff neck again?

I mention this because I want you to remember all you have done to eliminate your muscle spasms and neck pain.

You need to get some relief.

The Best Solution

Now that you have made it this far, I won’t leave you hanging any longer. Enter the Sobakawa pillow. Click here to get the pillow that will change how you sleep.

As I said, I’ve been using it for years and have suggested it to many others. All of them love this pillow too.

The Sobakawa pillow is made from buckwheat hulls and is wrapped in organic cotton fabric.

One of the many benefits of these hulls is that they allow air to flow between them. This is what allows your head to feel cooler all night long. No more waking up with a sweaty neck.

Additionally, there are two sizes of pillows you can choose from. I use the standard pillow, but this is because I take it with me everywhere.

Yes, I even plan to use a backpack for this pillow. The quality of sleep it provides is that important to me.

You might be thinking this is too good to be true. Well, it’s true.

I occasionally wake up with some neck pain, but it’s nothing like it used to be. I went from having multiple days where I couldn’t move my neck in any direction to being pain-free for a year (and counting).

It’s been a year because that is when I purchased my last pillow.

If you need more convincing, when was the last time you changed your pillow? I think it’s long overdue (click the previous link to see a chart of suggested replacements from the Sleep Foundation).

So if you need to replace your current pillow anyway, there is no harm in trying out the Sobakawa pillow.

Sobakawa Pillow – Pros

Suppose you didn’t click the link above and watch the video. Here are some pros I’ve experienced since using this pillow.

  • Offers neck support
  • No more waking up with a sweaty neck
  • I sleep cooler
  • You don’t have to flip or fluff up this pillow

Sobakawa Pillow – Cons

And let’s be honest. Nothing is perfect. Everything has pros and cons, so let’s list some of the things that didn’t make the list above.

  • The price is a bit steep (I got mine for $30, click here for the most current price on Amazon)
  • It’s a bit on the heavy side, weighing in around 4 pounds
  • It takes up suitcase space, meaning you have to plan if bringing it with you when traveling if you travel with it, takes up space)

And yes, these are not perfect, but considering what this pillow offers, it’s really a no-brainer to try it.

I have spent over $300 trying out all the different pillows on the market. This one is cheaper than many I have, which I later gave away. As for taking it with me on my adventures, you bet I do. It just takes some planning, but you can pack it in a carry-on.

    Having a good pillow is so important to getting a good night’s sleep.  I can’t even count how many times I have woken up with a sore neck, thanks to a worn-out pillow.  The soreness is sometimes so bad, where I can’t even move my neck.  It’s horrible when that happens!

    I go through pillows at least once or twice a year.  I have probably spent a fortune on pillows, trying to find a good one, so a price tag of $30 dollars is not that bad.  I have never heard of the Sobakawa pillow, but it sounds really good.  I will have to give it a try!

    I’m wondering if this pillow can be washed?  It’s not really a big deal, if it can’t be washed, as I always have a protective waterproof cover on it.

      Hi Jenny,

      I know how tough it is to find a good pillow. After my accident (many years ago), I can relate to spending a small fortune on one.

      The Sobakawa has been my answer, and I hope you will like it too. Remember, it takes a few nights to get used to it (I assume it’s much firmer than what you are used to).

      As for washing it, I wouldn’t. I found some articles online saying that you can wash it, but I wouldn’t believe them. I say this mainly because I have used them for so long, and I would imagine soaking the buckwheat hulls (the stuff inside the pillow) would be bad.

      With that said, I had my first one for many years, and the current one (about a year old now) is still holding up strong.

      If you get one, I would love to hear what you think. Take care and sleep well 🙂

  • Hi Eric, I was intreguied with your post and took a look at the Amazon link. I do not have a problem with neck pain, but I saw that sleep apnea was noted on the list of things the buckwheat pillow is good for. $29 is more than a $5 pillow, but as far as pillows go, it is a reasonable price to get a good night’s sleep.

    • Eric Wilde says:

      Yes, it’s more than a $5 pillow, but I would assume the five bucks is for a cheap pillow that doesn’t offer any support. But, if you didn’t need the support (not sure why you wouldn’t), you could buy a few pillows.

      The Sobakawa pillow is mainly geared for people that need support and hasn’t found what they need.

    I have had problems with sleeping wrong often and waking up with what I always a “crick” in my neck. I know that’s a weird word but it’s what I have always known it as. I am also the world’s worst about constantly flipping my pillow over to the cool side. This pillow does sound like a good one to give a try! I also enjoyed reading your back story that related to your neck problems. Great article!

    • Eric Wilde says:

      Hi, and thanks for the comment. I want to say that I always have a crick in my neck too. Well, it’s some sort of muscle spasm that can cause some crazy pain.

      As I mentioned, I had a Sobakawa pillow many years ago. I loved it but eventually started trying many other pillows. It wasn’t until a coworker had the same problems as you mentioned that I remembered this gem.

      It is a game-changer, and I’ve been sleeping GREAT! Another good thing is that I totally forgot how much cooler this pillow is too!

      I take this pillow everywhere and even on my last road trip. It helped out a lot due to the heat I was in.

      Good luck, and if you remember, let me know what you think (if you end up trying one for yourself).

  • I need a Sobakawa pillow right now. I used to have sleep issues. I now have restful sleep every night except… neck is always achy achy. I am going to buy one. $30 is not expensive compared to the neck discomfort I have to deal with. Thank you for this information.

    • Eric Wilde says:

      Not to mention going to the doctor to try and get some relief. The cost of the pillow more than pays for itself.

      Just remember, give it a few nights. You’re going to need to get used to it, mainly if you are used to pillows that don’t support your neck at all.

      Good luck, and I hope it works for you!
