Why a Latex Mattress Is the Best Type of Mattress for Alleviating Back Pain

There are certain things you can do to alleviate chronic back pain. Try sleeping with a cushion or pillow under your knees or lying in the fetal position. Both these positions can help relieve the strain that you may be experiencing. Have someone look at your spine while you are lying on your side on your mattress. Is it aligned and straight? If not, check the surface of your mattress to make sure it doesn’t have any valleys or indentations. Some low-density polyurethane foam in the top layers of mattresses can wear out over a short period of time and lose the ability to adequately support your back. To check if your mattress is worn out, pull a string across your mattress. Is there a space between the string and the top of the mattress? If so, it may be time to invest in a natural latex mattress. Natural latex foam is not only more environmentally friendly, but it’s also more durable, responsive and supportive than polyurethane foam. It feels buoyant, like if you were sleeping on a water bed, but without the waviness. Try it out to see if it influences the state of your back pain.

Organic Bed Sheets

Organic bedsheets are becoming more available and more affordable. But why should you choose organic bedsheets over conventional ones? Aren’t they the same? Well, there are a number of reasons why you should definitely go organic when choosing your bedsheets. Conventional cotton production accounts for 25% of the world’s pesticide use. Conventional cotton is horrible for the planet, causing pollution of rivers, lakes and aquifers. You may absorb some of the pesticide residues through your skin. Processing conventional cotton uses even more chemicals, some of which are highly toxic. The workers who handle conventional cotton, from the plantation to the finished product, are exposed to many chemicals, which can be detrimental to their health over a long period of time. Sleeping on certified organic sheets will give you the peace of mind that you are doing a favour for your skin and body. Organic cotton is not genetically modified, doesn’t contain any toxic dyes and is safer for the people involved in its production.
