Chillow pillow for hot flushes

May not seem like it now, but warmer weather will come and the Chillow pillow can help cool those hot flushes.

AnnA Rushton

One of the things that drove me nuts during menopause was hot flushes, and in particular being unable to find a cool spot to lay my head at night. The pillow superheated as soon as my flushed face hit it, but there may be a solution if this is also happening to you.

The Chillow goes inside your pillowcase and contains a unique two centimetres thick cooling pad that you fill with tap water to activate it. It absorbs heat from your body and releases it into the air around you so no more turning the pillow over desperately trying to find a cool spot, and sounds like you could turn the bedroom heating down a notch as well.

It is suggested not just for hot flushes but for headaches, sunburn, fevers and even the side effects of Radiotherapy and Chemotherapy.

Sounds a bit science fiction, but it has been recommended by Health Clinics, doctors, the Migraine Action Association, and MacMillan Oncology units. If your pillow is keeping you awake, it might be well worth a try.

i was looking oninle for a hormone doctor and came across with site. My issues are I simply to do feel up to par. I recentely started getting dull headaches, with little light headiness, no energy. I am going through menopause. I no longer have a menstral cycle, but continue to have hot flashes. I am 52 yr old. I have been told that perhaps my hormones are out of wack. I have put on weight. Not a lot but enough to make me stress about it. I eat healthy an occansionally exercise but no matter what I do the extra 30lbs + is there. I have no energy. Has anyone went through this and if so any suggestions on what I need to do or who I may see. My doctor doesnt seem to think it is a problem just diet and exercise. He hasn’t even address the issue of no energy, weight gain, light headiness.

I believe it needs to have a standard pillow case covering it so you minimise the contact, but some women have mentioned using a small hand towel over the pillow – and putting that in the fridge first can make it even cooler. Might be worth a try.

i bought one and thought it was going to be wonderful but when it arrived i found the side you put your head on was plastic which didnt help me at all
if you have any other ideas how to use it let me know.
