Does the Type of Mattress Matter?

MattressGood morning! Dr Kelly here. Does the type of mattress matter?

For those of you who have dropped several of thousands of dollars on a mattress and still wake up with a sore back…then you know YES it does matter.

And it doesn’t have to be you, it could be a loved one who wakes up with a sore back. Is the saying true, a happy wife is a happy life??

If it is not a sore back, it could be numbness in your arms.

You could go on vacation and sleep in a different bed and know instantly that it will not be a good night’s sleep.

Now which type of mattress is best?

That depends on YOU!

Everyone is different. Some people prefer a softer bed, some a firmer bed.

The best way to tell is to sleep on the bed. Since that is difficult, go to the store and lay on them.

For the spine support, I recommend a firmer mattress.

Woman with MattressIf you have slept on it and feel it is too firm, you can always purchase a softer topper.

You will have the support your spine needs and a softer topper that can give you a couple of inches of softness to cozy into.

For your college bound students, I purchased the mattress topper for Chloee to use at school. This way no matter what type of mattress the dorm offered; I knew she had some support in the topper.

The material the bed is made from is important too!

An organic mattress is the cleanest. But I personally do not find these as comfortable. I personally prefer a hybrid model. This gives you less off gas toxins to breath in. Remember, you are ideally spending 7-9 hours on this bed. If the bed is giving off toxic fumes, you are breathing in those fumes for 9 hours.

When looking for a hybrid model, I recommend Quality Sleep Shop. They hand make all their mattresses right here in Illinois.

They also have an organic mattress line.
