Latex Pillows: Any Experience?

Recently I've been suffering from a nighttime cough that comes on after about 30 minutes after hitting the sack. My fiancee thinks it might be dust mites in my beloved down pillow which I've had for a couple years. Another green blog recently posted about latex pillows which are naturally resistant to common germs, dust mites, mildew and mold. Has anyone had any experience with these?I am an incredibly picky when it comes to my pillows. Once I find one I like (generally a soft down), I'll keep it for years. Ecofabulou's blog post on Nature's Rest latex pillows has me seriously intrigued by this relatively pricey pillow, but I want to ensure it would be comfortable and address my recent coughing issues.

Does anyone have any experience with natural latex pillows? Or even ways to put night coughing...er...to bed?
