5.0 out of 5 stars Breath of fresh air Feb. 27 2004
This book gives straightforward and non invasive techniques for healthy sinuses in today's polluted world. Not only does it cover allopathic medical treatments, but more importantly it gives wholistic information that is a life saver for those with occasional or chronic sinusitus. The information on nasal irrigation, which may seem gross to some, has saved me from many a sinus infection, and my cousin was able to avoid surgery by practicing the methods outlined in this book.
It is a breath of fresh air to a world with more and more sufferers of sinusitus. Read the book, and give it a try. You won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent & comprehensive. July 11 2004
After reading everything on this and related subjects, 50+ books, I discovered this one, and as a sufferer of sinus infection and allergies, 2 sinus operations, 10 years of allergy shots, more anti-biotics than anyone would believe, I conclude that this book is correct on sinus infection & surgery, allergies, medication and prevention. After my second sinus operation, I told the surgeon about this book, who now recommends it to her patients. The nasal irrigation described in this book is usually more effective than any prescription, with no side effects. Just do it all the time, not just AFTER you become ill.
Do yourself a favor, and read this if you have any sinus or allergy problems: you may then know more than your doctor--especially a GP.

5.0 out of 5 stars A New Life March 29 2004
Four years ago, I was diagnosed with Chronic Sinusitis. After being on antiboitics every other month, I was told surgery would help. However, after surgery I was not better. In fact, my health was deteriorating. I was constantly feeling sick which led me to be angry and frustrated most of the time. There were many times I was unable to do the things I wanted to do with my three children. Every medical doctor told me there was nothing they could do. I couldn't accept this. My journey to my new life began after buying Sinus Survival by Dr. Robert Ivker. Desperate to be healtier, I immediately began Dr.Ivker's program. The work involved in the program empowered me. I had to change many aspects of my life such as diet, supplements and exercise. It was not just about getting my sinuses healthy but my emotional and spiritual self as well. My new life began one and half years ago. I have never been more healthier than I am now. I have only had three infections in the last eighteen months. My journey is not over, however I no longer have Chronic Sinsutis. What I have learned from Dr.Ivker's book has also improved my family's physical, emotional and spiritual well being. Dr. Ivker's book has given me a new life. This experience has truly been a gift from God. A gift that has led me to my new life and a greater appreciation for it.

4.0 out of 5 stars I'm off the antibiotic merry-go-round! July 28 2003
Sinus Survival has helped me enormously, especially in terms of learning about the yeast connection, the need for saline irrigation, and steaming of the sinuses. Since being treated for yeast overgrowth, my sinuses, as well as a whole host of other needling symptoms, have greatly improved. Even my new ENT is very familiar with the book. By the way, I did need sinus surgery after all due to an obstruction in one of my sinuses. The best thing about Sinus Survival is that I was able to try many techniques for improving my sinuses and breaking the cycle of sickness. I may still occasionally need my ENT, but I don't have that hopeless feeling that I had for many years when all I received was a prescription for antibiotics.

1.0 out of 5 stars This guy's a real flake March 24 2003
This book starts out with about 100 pages of legitimate information concerning sinuses, symptoms of sinusitis and other sinus ailments, and the current medical understanding of allergies and many other causes of sinus problems. This material is informative although similar information is available at public web sites as well.
But the remainder of the book is a random walk through what the author terms "holistic" approaches. These include such topics as having too much yeast in your diet, getting psychotherapy, having a stronger sense of humor, celebrating a day of Sabbath, and so forth. Some of these might be good suggestions for various individuals, but if you want to learn about these things, get some other book. The book doesn't relate these things to sinus problems in any case.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than surgery June 25 2002
By A Customer
Bought this book last week. After six months of not being able to smell or taste, and having ears plugging up, I am feeling a bit better. I have intermittent episodes of smelling/tasting in only a week. Yes, I have done acupuncture, chinese herbs and naturopathy. My energy level is up a couple of notches (thanks,kukicha tea), I can sorta keep up with my babies. For me the candida/fungus link is absolutely there. So just following the diet and taking some supplements is a start to getting better!! YEAH!
p.s. I did find a positive "I AM" getting better attitude helps.
