We Love Answering Questions…especially ones about organic latex mattresses

Here’s a whole bunch of questions people ask me often!

What is a healthy bed? Are healthy beds really that important? Where do you buy a healthy bed?

Are they worth the investment? Is organic really better?

I’ll try to answer these and many more questions in this blog and future ones.

With so much green washing going on today, it can sometimes be difficult to find companies with a vision and integrity to provide genuine organic mattresses and bedding.

How can the same retail store sell memory foam mattresses and organic latex foam mattresses side by side? Many retailers do. Where’s their integrity? Dormio Organic Beds realizes the health benefits of organic beds and that is the reason this is all we sell to our clients. In fact, our families sleep on the same organic latex foam mattresses we sell at our store.

People are beginning to realize that the health of their home impacts the health of their family. But with so many poor quality and toxic consumer products on the market, most people have no way of knowing what they are exposing themselves to. Labels rarely show list of dangerous chemicals that go into making a product.

The chemical composition of most popular mattresses, such as memory foam can be scary.

We spent about one third of our lives in bed. Children, the elderly and the sick spend even more.

Sleep is when the body heals itself and gets rid of toxins. Anything that prevents us from sleeping properly impacts the other 2/3 of our life. Our bed can be the cause of many problems.

Many popular beds available today are a chemical nightmare. When sleeping on a mattress containing polyurethane foam many people report experiencing restless sleep, frequent waking, insomnia, and waking up in the morning feeling groggy. Though not life threatening, they can certainly make a person less productive during the day…  so if you are sleeping on a mattress or pillow containing polyurethane you may be breathing in and absorbing through your skin various chemicals all night, every night.

If you care about your health it’s important for you to know what you are sleeping on.

At Dormio we offer the largest selection of organic latex mattresses in Toronto. Let your body heal and detox while you sleep, like it was meant to do.

What are The Reason for The Increase in Demand For an Organic Mattress?

There are many reasons why people choose a chemical-free, natural or organic latex mattress. If you are sensitive to chemicals or the off gassing of powerful chemicals then you and your family may suffer negative side effects when sleeping on a regular mattress. Our bedrooms are intimate and where we lay our new born babies with us. These chemicals are concentrated in the surface of our mattress are absorbed through our skin and inhaled. Doctors agree that long term exposure to these chemicals can increase the risk of illness. Having a safer, chemical free surface can only improve our health. Besides being chemical free and made with natural or organic materials, your new mattress should have a supportive density, but also have enough give to conform to the bumps and curves of the body, with a soft overlay to provide comfort for the joints and muscles.

Most of us spend about one third of our lives in bed, that’s just when we’re sleeping. Almost 30% of our population suffer from sleep disorders and another 15% of us have chronic sleep problems. Many popular mattresses are a chemical nightmare, constructed of polyurethane foam, which is made from petrochemical base combined with chemical potpourri of stabilizers, catalysts, surfactants, fire retardants, antimicrobial additives and colorants. These chemicals are associated with environmental problems as well as human health hazards such as chronic bronchitis, impaired lung function, breathlessness, nausea, vomiting and allergic reactions. Some are potential carcinogens and reproductive toxins.

Replacing your mattress with an organic latex mattress is the simplest way to avoid chemicals in a majority part of your life (sleeping). Natural rubber latex is the best core material, resistant to mold, mildew, bacteria and dust mites. Organic wool also resistant to dust mites is great at lowering heart rate and controlling humidity next to the skin. Organic cotton is soft, comfortable and durable. Coil or memory foam mattresses are the most overlooked causes of health problems today. A healthy latex organic mattress is a good start in eliminating toxins in your bedroom. Whether you are interested in a cleaner environment or improved health for you and your family, an organic mattress is essential to a good night’s sleep.
