Chillow Pillow

Have You Heard About the Chillow Pillow? A Chillow Pillow is a thin, soft thermo-regulated pad that slides into your pillowcase on top of your pillow that delivers a very soothing and relaxing effect. It is safe, hypoallergenic and nontoxic unlike other products. The Chillow Pillow is unlike gel filled packs that are usually too cold for comfort, its meant to be cool just enough for you to fall asleep easy, but if you want it colder you can put it in the refrigerator for 15 minutes. The cooling effect eases your migraines, hot flashes or sunburn. How does the Chillow Pillow work?

What happens, the Chillow Pillow uses water to absorb the body heat into the pillow. Once the heat is absorbed it dissipates to the surrounding air giving a cool, relaxing night’s sleep. It stays dry on the outside and can be used night after night. Once activated it is easy to reuse your pillow for the next night. All you need to do is leave it out at room temperature. Maintenance is minimal, once a month you need to open the filler cap and sweep out the air.


I recently read an article on June, 14, 2001 by HealthDay News that a cooler head not only helps you to sleep better, a cooling cap is being tested to treat insomnia. What happens when you have insomnia? Your brain is hyperaroused causing a higher brain metabolism in the frontal lobes which explains why you can’t fall asleep and stay asleep during the night. Researchers used a device called the Sleeptime Head-Cooling Cap that has cool water flowing through it, on 12 insomnia patients and 12 healthy adults matching in age and gender. The participants slept two nights with no cap, two nights with the cap’s water temperature at 86 degrees, two nights at 72 degrees and two nights with the coolest temperature of 57 degrees. Their brains were monitored to detect electrical activity, eye movement (REM sleep) and jaw muscle tone during REM sleep that is a sign of sleep paralysis. Conclusion of the study showed that three quarters of those with insomnia slept better with a water temperature at 57 degrees. The cap is not yet available to consumers, although the lead researchers have plans to bring it to market.

Cooling the brain or “frontal cerebral thermal transfer” as the cooling is called reduces brain metabolism in the frontal lobes and it improves sleep. From previous studies sleep experts know that as the body core temperature cools, our sleep improves, and with warming of the core temperature, we have more restless sleep. So if you can’t sleep and tried counting sheep, drinking a glass of warm milk or even taken a sleep aid and nothing seems to work, maybe you should try cooling your brain with a Chillow Pillow or the All-Natural SootheAway System.

The SootheAway Continuous Thermal Therapy System (Includes 1 Front & Side Head Relief Pad) - a Natural Pain Relief Treatment for Migraine Headaches, Tension, Stress, Heat Stroke, Occipital Neuritis, Neck & Back Pain, and More is pricier than the Chillow Pillow, roughly $350.00 vs 25.00, but it works by circulating water continuously through its therapeutic relief pad. After you select the temperature level, it creates a combination of compression and temperature that has been proven to be effective for pain relief and relaxation. Cooling the brain shrinks blood vessels that reduce pressure on the nerves alleviating headaches and allowing you to sleep better all night.
