By now you figured out organic mattresses are better for your health and the environment. Now you’re wondering if you’ll be sacrificing comfort. Can organic mattresses be firm or soft like a conventional mattress? The answer is “yes.” Now that you know the answer, it’s time to figure out if a soft or a firm mattress is best for you.

If you have health issues like back pain, rheumatism, or arthritis, a soft mattress is probably best for you. Soft mattresses can reduce back pain and help those with joint pain and problems. There’s an age-old belief that people with back issues should sleep only on hard mattresses. New studies have suggested that soft mattresses are a better option for people with certain lower back issues.

If you do not have a history of back issues, the best bet is stay with a firm mattress. A firm mattress prevents your lower back from collapsing, thus ensuring that your airways are not constricted, allowing you to inhale more oxygen. Your bones should have a little resistance and the less cushioning a mattress provides, the more likely you are to fall in a deep sleep while maintain a neutral spine.

Of course choosing a mattress comes down to your personal preference. The experts at Green Dream Beds will educate you and help you find the right mattress.
