Recommendation

As people spend approximately one-third of their lives sleeping, poor sleep is one of the greatest enemies of a healthy life. The origins of good health lie in being well-rested. The Mille Fori pillow is perfect for the many of you who are choosy about your pillow.
I recommend the Mille Fori to anyone who suffers from stiff shoulders, back pain, headaches, or pinched nerves and who has sought medical treatment to no avail.
People produce approximately one liter of sweat while sleeping. When that sweat cools, your neck, shoulders, and the back of your head get chilled, resulting in a restless sleep. This can also lead to a stroke or brain hemorrhage.
The Mille Fori pillow's case is highly absorbent, including padding with strong bounce back, and the parts which touch the shoulder and back of the head are incredibly breathable. As such, it stops your neck from tightening up, your shoulders and lower back from feeling heavy, and prevents a variety of other symptoms. Sound sleep leads to a fresh morning, and it is the source of maintaining a comfortable everyday life. I promise that if you use the Mille Fori pillow, you will wake up each morning refreshed and see its value.
