Cheap Relief Feb 13, 2008
If you have sinus problems, read this book instead of going to the doctor's office. If you are doctor with a conscience, recommend this book to your patients.
Impressed with Sinus Survival Sep 17, 2007
Having read a number of sinus self-help books in recent years, I must say I am very impressed with this one.
Dr. Ivker was the past present of the American Holistic Medical Association and it shows! That said, what I appreciate about Dr. Ivker's Sinus Survival book is the holistic treatment focus in it and the extensiveness with which he explores the treatments. Using the Sinus Survival Treatment Program as a basis, Dr. Ivker goes into great depth regarding a number of different holistic treatments, be it nasal irrigation, candida or fungi treatments, treatments for anxiety and stress, a proper diet, cleaning up the environment, vitamins and herbs. Similar to my own experiences, I believe the very best approach to remediate sinusitis and allergies is to utilize a holistic approach. You cannot treat your sinuses any other way - or you miss an interdependent piece of the puzzle.
Antibiotic treatment cannot and should not be the sole focus for treating a sinus infection; you need to treat the whole body. I can tell you affirmatively that as an empty nose syndrome (ENS) sufferer - who also suffers from sinusitis and allergies - my nose is far worse if I do not exercise during the day. My nose and sinuses feel worse if my diet is off, if my sleep is poor, or if I do not irrigate my nose with pulsatile saline irrigation. I am grateful Dr. Ivker recommends nasal irrigation for healthy sinuses in preventative fashion, as I find that to be beneficial in my own situation. If I do not irrigate, I find myself much more susceptible to sinus infections. Pulsatile irrigation is literally like my lifeline for sleeping better and breathing somewhat better, too.
Like Dr. Ivker, my brother-in-law is a GP, and I will share this book with him. It is wonderful to see a GP promote a program that can treat the sinuses very effectively and offer so many helpful tips. Kudos, Dr. Ivker, for this tremendous book!

Stop suffering right now. Aug 16, 2007
If you suffer from sinus woes, look no further, for this is the book. I'm not biased, an idiot, or short-sighted. I'm not buddies with the author. I've just been all over the map looking for sinus cures (like you?), and happen to know that this is it.
This book is, hands down, the best way to get over even the WORST sinusitis. OK, granted, its purchase is just the beginning of a journey. It is not a magic pill that you wad up and swallow. You'll have to read it and probably change your lifestyle (I'm talking dramatically), but this book holds all the information you need to get you on your feet again. I carry it around with me all the time, consulting it like a monk doth his bible. It is the best compendium of sinusitis information on the market.
I know you think your case is unique. That you've already tried everything. That you are worse off than everyone else, and that NOBODY could possible BEGIN to understand what you go through every day with your nose. Believe me, I was there. But, I promise you're not alone, and that there's a way to get better. This book and Dr. Ivker can help.
If you're suffering, do yourself a favor and just stop. Get this book, right now and start getting better.
Life changing Mar 12, 2007
I followed the principles in this book. Fantastic. I suffered my whole life with progressively worse and worse sinus infections. If you suffer like I did, don't hesitate, get this book. You'll be doing yourself a favor.
Can you tell I really like this book! Sep 22, 2006
"Sinus Survival: A Self-help Guide" by Robert Ivker (isbn: 1585420581) This `survival' book is amazing. (In contrast to "The Sinus Cure" by Debra Fulghum Bruce, which in my opinion, okay, I'll say it: "sucks"). I've owned both books for five+ years now. In short, the `survival' book gives me plenty of `knowledge meat' to work with, while the `cure' book didn't tell me anything that I didn't already know. The `survival' book, on the other hand, I refer to every year, and learn (or relearn) more than I did before. Dr Ivker, is a sinusitis sufferer himself, went the extra hoops beyond MD to become DO and has many self-help options in here. He includes a thorough exploration of what EMT-physicians consider, and/or exams to possibly do, or surgeries, etc and why. True to his word, I've followed his steps and have become someone who regularly had two or more sinus infections every year, to someone who has been infection-free for five and counting. And for those earlier unfortunate times while suffering from one, I still gained immediate relief (beyond the antibiotics) from some specific steps he recommends. Can you tell I really like this book! Lol's
