It all began with my mum, an Englishwomen by the name of Judy. She has suffered from chronic ear pain throughout her life and has been unable to have diagnosed precisely what the problem is. She was fine day to day however whenever she went out on a windy day or put her head on a pillow she experienced an extreme amount of ear pain and discomfort. This lasted for many years with little resolution, Judy thus being resigned to a life of sleepless nights and big woolly hats.
However, this all changed when she went on a trip to Africa. While travelling through the Sahara desert her guide set up camp for the evening and, to Judy’s horror, produced several hard sand-bags for everyone to use as pillows! For somebody suffering from an ear condition such as hers this was the worst possible situation to be in. A night under a beautiful canopy of stars was destined to be ruined by excruciating ear pain as her ear was squashed against the unforgiving mixture of compacted sand and sack-cloth.
It is at that moment that she had an idea - an idea super simple yet super effective. She would poke a hole in the sandbag in order to create a pocket of air that she could rest her ear in. The rest of the bag would support her head and her ear would have nothing harsher than fresh air pushing against it. The idea worked and despite sleeping on a rough sand-bag she had a wonderful night’s sleep.
It is from this simple idea of creating an air pocket in which she could rest her ear that ‘The Pillow With A Hole’ was born. She has since patented the invention and sells her hand-made pillows through her website http://www.thepillowwithahole.co.uk/. The Original P.W.A.H™ has proven through the testimony of her customers to be an effective treatment for conditions such as CNH (chondrodermatitis nodularis helicis), pressure sores, skin lesions and general pain caused by the pressure of a conventional pillow.
She has also found that some of her customers have bought the pillow so that they can comfortably wear earplugs in bed. This is because both CNH and earplugs cause the same uncomfortable sensation that a pillow with a hole alleviates.
Finally, it should also be said that she also offers a full money back guarantee on all of her pillows, such is her confidence in their efficacy. If after receiving the pillow you don’t believe it is for you, you can always send it back in the same condition in which you received it. However, we’re sure you will find it an ideal cnh pillow.
