Dr. Josephson is a sinus sufferer himself.
Walter Ballenberger
This book is very informative, but a lot of the book deals with how the sinuses work, and how they are subject to irritation.

Everyone can take something away from this valuable book and breathe a bit easier.

If I could rate this book six stars, I would do so. Here is my review.

When I first started seeing an ENT specialist years ago for my sinus problems, I purchased a couple of books on the subject of sinusitis. When I mentioned this to my doctor and asked a couple of questions that showed a bit more knowledge of the subject than most people had, he frowned and had a worried look on his face. He then commented that having only "a little bit of knowledge was dangerous". I therefore appreciated the comments by Dr. Josephson in his new book entitled "Sinus Relief Now- The Groundbreaking 5 Step Program for Sinus, Allergy, and Asthma Sufferers". He stated: "If your

physician responds negatively to your newfound knowledge or is obviously uncomfortable working with a patient who is well educated about his or her disease, it's another clear signal that it's time to move on" (and find another doctor). I wish I had had this advice at that time, as the doctor eventually performed my first sinus surgery, caused me immense pain, and he didn't improve my situation at all.

It should be mentioned at this point that Dr. Josephson is a well known and highly regarded ENT specialist and surgeon. He has several times been on New York magazine's "Best Doctors" list. He has been an expert commentator on many local and national television programs, and he is the Director of the New York Nasal and Sinus Center. I personally believe this book should be part of the home library of anyone who suffers from what Dr. Josephson calls CAID, or Chronic Airway-Digestive Inflammatory Disease.

In the U.S. alone this includes about 70 million people who suffer from sinus disease, asthma, allergies, reflux diseases GERD and LRPD, as well as sleep problems like snoring and sleep apnea. Dr.

This book is a God-send for sinus suffers. The regime it recommends works as advertised. I can attest to this--I have suffered from sinus problems all my life.The 5 step solution recommended by Dr. Josephson REALLY works. Sinus irrigation for example has made a huge difference in the quality of my life. The power of this book is that is does not over-simplify. Sinus problems originate from a range of complex problems and these need to be understood. What this book does well is break down the solution into pieces the average person can understand and implement.

Format: Paperback
This book is approachable by a layperson and which covers most of what a sinus sufferer should know before seeking treatment. It provides a good overview of the anatomy, a brief description of surgical evaluation and intervention, and detailed descriptions of medications and recommended lifestyle adjustments

I'm a patient of Dr. Josephson and he strongly encourages patients to read this book so I read it. Before reading my review, I recommend you first read the best review I could find, written by Walt Ballenberger who is founder of PostNasalDrip, "a resource web site for sinusitis sufferers like himself". You can find the review at the following links: [..] Ballenberger's review identified a number of questions which were unanswered in his book. By talking with Josephson in person, I was able to get answers for some of them.

LASER
The book doesn't explain the tradeoffs of laser vs. traditional cutting instruments. Before Josephson, I saw an ENT who recommended laser to lightly cauterize the turbinates in order to reduce their tendency to swell when inflamed (the scarification reduces the membrane's elasticity). Dr Josephson is not a proponent of laser except in certain cases. Although a laser is self-cauterizing and therefore reduces bleeding, it causes heat damage to surrounding tissue (more than the damage caused by a cutting instrument) and instrument setup adds time/cost to the procedure. Only where the decrease in bleeding outweighs these costs is use of a laser justified (e.g. when the patient has many small polyps). I didn't ask him but I'd imagine that the thermal heat injury would likely cause more damage to mucus-producing goblet cells and mucus-transporting cilia cells than cutting tools.

This book was recomended by Seth Godin, the marketing guru, and I love his work so I bought it. I could not get through the whole thing because the first 70 pages goes into immense detail about the anatomy of the sinuses to the point where no one would care and most of the rest of the chapters did not apply to me (e.g. special cases, morbidly obese, etc.) There is some helpful information about irrigating your sinuses, which I am now doing, but the book could have been 200 pages shorter and I would have gotten just as much out of it.

I read "Sinus Relief Now." This book puts into perspective all of the problems that I was suffering from including sinus problems, allergies, GERD (gastroesophageal reflux) and snoring. I went to various doctors and none of them seemed to connect the dots between all of these problems. I was given a lot of treatments over the years, most that provided temporary or minimal relief. Dr Josephson gets it. His treatments are right on and have offered me significant relief already. The combination of east and western medicine is perfect. He thinks of everything with balance. This book is an absolute must for all people that suffer from sinus problems, allergies, asthma, snoring sleep apnea and GERD. I bought a few copies and have given them out to friends. Everybody seems to love the book. This book and Dr Josephsons treatment have made a huge difference in my life already.
