Mulberry Park Silks Pillowcase

At Cornucopia, our mission is to nourish the body, mind, and spirit of cancer patients all while detoxing the environment.  By partnering with Mulberry Park Silks, we are able to offer a product that is in-line with our mission.  Their 100% pure silk pillowcases are free of chemicals, hypoallergenic, sustainable, and OEKO-TEX® Certified. 

 

Most importantly, they offer a friction-free, hydrating, surface that minimizes hair breakage.  This keeps the hair follicle in-tact and allows hair to grow back much sooner.  Cotton pillowcases are super absorbent, dehydrating to your hair and skin.  Did you know cotton can absorb 27 times its own weight in water?  Cotton pillowcases also add a great deal of friction to an already weak and damaged follicle which causes breakage. 

 

Dennis F. from Oklahoma bought a Mulberry Park Silks pillowcase for his wife who is currently fighting cancer.  His wife lost her hair due to chemotherapy treatment and when it started to eventually grow back, it only grew back on the side and top of her head.  Then, Dennis bought her a Mulberry Park Silks pillowcase. Within a week, she noticed a difference.   It wasn’t much longer after that when she felt the back of her head and thought no hair was growing at all but quickly realized it had already grown back so long that it was laying down flat!

 

As anyone in Dennis’ wife’s situation knows, it can be emotionally very difficult to lose your hair, especially as a woman.  Our hair gives us a sense of femininity, confidence and the look of youth/health.  When you not only feel terrible from the treatment, but then you also feel like you ‘look’ less than your best, it can be discouraging.  With these pillowcases, that sense of confidence can return much quicker, providing a source of strength to keep on fighting.

 

Did you know cotton is traditionally grown using tons of pesticides - pesticides that are carcinogens(cyanazine, dicofol, naled, propargite and trifluralin)?   In fact, cotton is the most pesticide-laden crop grown on Earth, accounting for 11% of the world’s pesticide market and 24% of global insecticide sales.  And that’s before harvesting and production!   

 

Mulberry Park Silks’ 100% Chemical-free pillowcase is clearly the better choice here.  You can get a good night’s rest, worry-free, and watch your hair grow back instead of sleeping 8 hours each night on the toxic alternative. 

 

Silk is not only the healthiest choice but it is the most luxurious as well.  Why not pamper yourself a little bit? As a caring husband, Dennis explained to me,

“when someone is fighting cancer, anything you can do that gives a little bit of pleasure along the way is well worth it”.

Holistic Health

Our philosophy of health comes from a holistic point of view.  

Nourishment comes in many forms.  

  • eating organic whole foods

  • detoxing your environment

  • learning to manage stress

  • appropriate exercise

  • and healthy relationships with loved-ones.

Epsom Salts

For example, we are nourished by what we absorb through our largest organ, the skin.  Epsom salt baths are just one way we consume nutrients(i.e. magnesium)  through our skin.  Magnesium is used by the body to relax muscles, balance electrolytes, build bone, and to keep our gut humming along at a good pace.  Nothing is better than a warm bath filled with epsom salts and essential oils to relax your muscles, de-stress, and float away into a state of zen!

Organic Cancer Care Packages

The products we consume have a great impact on our health which is why our in-house Holistic Nutritionist has curated our cancer care packages to include the highest quality, non-toxic, nutrient dense, organic, and stress relieving products on the market today.

Cornucopia

Cancer is an all-encompassing disease.   

You deserve an all-encompassing solution. 

This is where holistic health comes in.  Holistic nutrition is not just about the food you eat --- did you know that your body's nutrient levels are also affected by your thoughts, emotions, exercise, and your surroundings? 

By nourishing the body, mind, spirit, and environment, you are able to impact your health in profound ways.   

Cornucopia: symbol of nourishment and abundance.

At Cornucopia, we have done years of research and study in order to bring you the highest quality, non-toxic, nutrient dense, organic, and stress relieving products that your loved-one will need in their battle against cancer.  We have even put them into beautiful little packages ready to be sent quickly to your loved-one in need.  

Our care packages are nourishing on all levels -- body, mind, spirit and environment.  

Consuming organic whole foods, detoxing your environment, learning to manage stress, practicing proper exercise, and fostering healthy relationships with loved-ones is so important to our overall health at anytime throughout our lives.  BUT --  when cancer is present this becomes critical.

All of these methods will decrease the total toxic load that your body is carrying.  Less toxins = better health. 

 

Our in-house Holistic Nutritionist has curated our care packages for you to send to your family, friends, co-workers and loved-ones who are battling cancer, or looking to prevent it from reoccurring, or even hoping to prevent it from happening in the first place.   We have put a lot of thought into these packages and we know they will make things just a little bit easier for your loved-one.  

  • Our 100% organic herbal teas will offer an abundance of micronutrients while also providing a warm, soothing, moment of relaxation that your loved-one deserves.
     
  • Our silk pillowcases provide a luxurious night's rest.  Our silk is hypoallergenic, free of chemicals, and naturally dyed.  These pillowcases are less dehydrating than cotton and cause less friction - which means less hair loss.  
     
  • Our non-toxic 3-ring binders will provide a way to keep medical records organized while ensuring a clutter-free mind.  In addition, they are completely FREE of polyvinyl chloride(AKA vinyl), a substance that contains dioxins, phthalates (hormone disruptors), vinyl chloride, ethylene dichloride, lead, cadmium, and organotins.      
      
  •  Our 100% organic essential oil Roll-Ons provide immediate stress relief through aromatherapy: a way to directly influence your limbic system which regulates memory and emotions.

Each organic care package is meant to be used as a supplement to traditional medical treatments, and as a replacement to other mainstream products that are toxic, nutrient-depleting and carcinogenic.   Instead of sending a macaroni and cheese casserole, why not send something that is organic, delicious, stress-relieving, thoughtful and most of all, empowering?
