revolutionary new sleep aid. mike's here to share with us why getting a good night's sleep is the secret to a happy, healthy life. >> hi, tonja. >> hi, mike. >> well, it's not only the secret to a happy life, it's critical to your health. and like everybody else out there, i have used my arm, folded my pillows, got migraines in the morning from sleeping on poor pillows. and whatat it is, what i've foud in my studies over the last seven years is the cervical nerves on each side of your neck need to be held straight in order to get that deep rem sleep that we all need. that's our healing sleep. healing is criticacal to one's health, and pillows are the problem. there is no bigger problem than a pillow, see. >> mike, i hear what you're saying. according to the natiol sleep foundation, the average adult purchases 58 pillows over their lifetime. they own six different pillows at anyny given tim and this is what blew me away--70% of us do not like our current pillow we sleep with every night. what's going on here? >> well, i just happened to have some here. (chuckles)
these pillows--the last 30 years--in the 1970s, pillows kind of changed forever, and we've all slept with this pillow here. this--this pillow here is--it pushes back. you know when you sleep on your back, you can feel that pillow. it's like spring. it's like pushing you back. >> oh, right. >> you're on your back, and you're like this with a tilted neck, you wawake up in the morning, you've bent your vertebral arteries, and you're going to get headaches. this is no good. okay, this pillow here, it becomes a ha surface. we've all slept on that with the curve. the problem is pillows give you support here and here,nd nothing where your c1 an2 is, your axis and your ulna. those are critical to snoring, to central sleep apnea, all these different things that--you need support in your neck. this one here--and also, you need to be kept cool. this one here will heat up. it will also become a hard surface, and it's s no good. (laughter) >> what about this one? >> this one here has ruined america. >> oh, my god. >> we've all slept on this. there's no support. >> absolutely. >> this hadone more for bad sleep deprivation than anything
anywhere. and the other thing, too, you know, you wash tse pillows and, you kw, how they ball up in the washer and dryer? >> yeah, yeah. >> the big pillow company wants you buying more and more pillows. and they don't care about your health. they don't care about ou sleep. they don't care that we keep buying pillows over and over and over again. i just wanted some sleep, and i did something about it. and this pillow here, i can't say enough bad things about it. terrible, terrible. >> m mike, i love your pillow. it has a great warranty. i ve that it's made in america. >> the best thing you're going to like about this pillow is i get rem sleep, the deep healing sleep, the stuff that helps all your health, how you feel the next day. i have a a patent on this pillo, and what it is, is all three sizes by fill are in every pillow. the stuff was warranteed 10 years. it won't't go flat. it's the healthiest thing ever invented. it's got a non--it's non-allergenic, ti-microbial, but the best thingt does, wherever you set this--okay, and so you first g get comfortable n your pillow and you're like this and you go like this and now-- tonja, i want you to feel that.
do you see how that holds? >> oh, my gosh. >> that will not migrate. wherever you set that, you get exactly what you need for your individual neck support, okay? you can turn this any way you want. you can make little balloon animals out of it if you want. okay, it's going to hold. it takes six pounds of pressure to hold that in position. your average head weighs 12 pounds. so wherever you set that, you get exactly what you need for you as an individual. it's amazing. it will change your life, there's nothing like it on the planet. it's jusamazing. now if you're on your back, we've all seen that curved pillow. i think we just threw one away a minute ago. okay, that curved pillow like that only fits 1 in 30 people. remember we told you that. it gives you support here and here, nothing here. well, you can be that 1 in 30, tonja. you take the pillow, you do it like this, you tuck it, and you know what? no more snoring, okay? i mean--and the reason is you're supporting your c1 and c2. your brehing is better. other companies have said, okay, we have this amazing cure for snoring. this will really work, and from my testimonials i have from all the pillows i've sold, about 70%

if you havave a pillow, say,or exame, tt don't work effectiveland itit stas ki of breakaking wn toughout the night, t that fe place for all that neurologic structure gets destroyed throughout the night. and what does that do? it keeps you awake bause you're tossing and turning, you don't restore yourself, and health deteriorates. >> after having the mypillow, i st feel so much better. just everything is just well taken care of, it feels like. and it's--there's no problem anymore getting t of bed with mypillow. >> we're here with sleep expert michael j. lindell, founder and inventor of a a revolutionary nw sleep aid called mypillow. >> over the last seven years, what i came up with is a theory after talking to hundreds and thousands of people that have the pillow. there's eight cervical nerves on each side of your neck. and what they do, they need to be in alignment, okay, to get-- for the signals go through to your brain. remember the old-fashioned tvs that had the horizontal hold and a wavy line when it wasn't clear? when you first get set at night and you first get comfortable
on your pillow, your brain says, okayi'm comfortable, 'cause your cervical nerves are lined up. well, what happens is the air starts going out of that pillow and then they'rere bent like bending a water hoseokay? whenen you do that, you're going (imitates crash) you know, your brain does not-- the signal's not going through. okay? same way with your arteries, your vertebral artery and your carotid artery. the blood flow to the brain needs to be, you know, open like a garden hose. >> is that why my concentration is so much better after i sleep on mypillow? >> that's exexactly righ >> good support, which is somehow the miracle mypillow, throughout the night is whate want. it's nice to fall leep, but then as your pillow collapses, you're going to wake up again because the position has changed. in mypillow, it seems that we're at a state that is comfortable, thnigh stays the same throughout >> what dr. kolodny has to say really reinforces what you've been telling us about mypillow.
>> what it does--puts you in a de rem sleep, which is a healing sleep. it's also your most comfortable sleep. when you get comfortable at nighght, that's what sends you into the rem. that's when your cervical nerves, your neck is lined up. and interesting enough--my theory on this, this theory was brand-new, and it's true. knows that n that't's out ther because you've all done that with your arms folded, your pillows and done all this stuff and flip-flopped all night like a guppy. here, you stay wh mypillow. wherever you set this pillow, it's going to hold exactly for you as an individual. with mypillow by keeping all those things in your neck straight, you get the best sleep of your life evevery single nig, and i guarantee it. we make them right here in the united states. the reason i'm still in that's my calling.p people. that's why i'm here, and i want everybody to have the best night's sleep they've ever got in their life. (applause) >> absolutely, absolutely. >> my six-year-old son uses mypillow. he loves it, and what we forget is that just because they're
little people, they still need sleep, and they needed more slep than adults. some kids have problems sleeeeping. they have problems getting to bed. ey have problems being fidgety in bed. some kids wake up tired. some kids wake up and not want to go to school. sometimes the first thing that we find out about kids who have attention issues or focus problems isn that they need some medication. sometimes they just need better sleep. >> earlier we talkedbout the importance of a good night sleep which is something i can really relate to. i have to admit, i wasretty skeptical, but mike had told me that it would really work. and afteabout two or three weeks, i noticed that all of my migraines had disappeared. and what i really noticed is that i could start going out to the gym. i could start exercising more because anytime i tried to do that before, i just would get excruciating headaches. and so one of the things--we talk about washing and drying a pillow. i've washed hundreds of pillows where they end up in that clump.
well, i put it ithe wawashingg machine, and when i ok it out of the dryer and it looked just like it id the day i bought it, i was sold. and that's when i wanted to buy them fory kids because my kids are always taking their pillow in the car. they're taking it to grandpa and grandma's house, they're throwing it in front of the tv. and so i'd always end up washing their pillows, and i knew that i was spending more money on gas driving back and forth tthe department store to buy them a new one. and the other thing that i really wanted and i knew is that if they really started getting a good night's sleleep now, keepig their cervical nerves in alignment and doing all of that stuff for their health, that hopefully when they got to be my age, they wouldn't have ththe kd of problems that i've had. so it's really important for me that my kids sleep on a great pillow. and they've even commented. my daughter, i was out working one day and she said--i was kind of telling mypillow story and she said "mom, i had no idea you were in that much pain." and she said--you know, and i just know that it's made a much better mom. >> people all rossmerica are tired of tosossing and turningll
