e believe that the questions you ask determine the answers you get. That's why we began asking different questions about what the quintessential bed would be in every respect.

e had the unique opportunity to ask the right questions:
  • Should a bed be made using metal coil springs?
  • How do you prevent dust-mites?
  • What are the best materials for breatheability and the dissipation of heat?
  • What are the most hypoallergenic materials?
  • Should there be any metal under your sleep surface at all?
  • Does a bed really need to be treated with toxic fire/flame retardant chemicals?
  • What construction design and materials really create the most comfort and support?
  • Is the Tempur-Pedic "memory foam" a good choice?
ave you ever seen the inside of a mattress that was torn or a see-through model at a mattress store and wondered why they put in all those metal coil springs? As you learn about conventional mattress construction, you find out that the synthetic foam that they use is so cheap and crushes so easily, they have to put a coil spring network in the mattress so it won't collapse! Imagine an air mattress that people take camping only half inflated, and that's what a conventional coil spring mattress would look like if you removed the coils. So basically, you're sleeping on a bunch of metal coil springs, which isn't much different than what the prisoners at Alcatraz Federal Prison slept on 75 years ago. Your Back Deserves Better Than That!

ince one third of your 24 hour day is spent lying down in order to rest and recuperate from a long day of work, your bed should adapt to your body, not the other way around. Since your strength, energy and performance are largely dependent on sleep, and your sleep quality is dependent on your bed, your bed should be considered a major component of optimum health.
