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.
That said, the book also has its weaknesses. If you haven't already gone headlong into the vitamin and mineral supplement lifestyle, this is all new to you. If you look at the dosages, it's not always consistent throughout the book.
Then there's the link between sinusitis and candida. I do believe that there's something to Dr Ivker's claim here. But his discipline in documenting the linkage is weak. I'd really hope that he further research and explore the current literature and studies out there. And his cure for candida -- heavily based in diet -- is not especially helpful for a vegetarian. While is diet does prod one towards eating a more healthy and vegetable-oriented meal, the suggestions really cannot be followed by a vegetarian! It's a bit ironic, but taking dairy (cheese and milk), fermented soy products (soy milk, tofu, tempeh), etc out of your diet makes you even more dependent on fish and meat. Dr Ivker doesn't address this challenge.
All said, I think the book is a good read, and provides many useful tips. It needs more focus from a good editor and thorough review of the clinical literature by the author. But, his plan is a heck of a lot better than the alternative presented by endless rounds of antibiotics.
like it more. Don't get me wrong,
I think there is real value in the
material for someone who hasn't barged
through all the latest material on the net.
The core sinus recommendations are still
on the mark and topical - even up to the
Mayo/fungus causality studies.
But the latest edition really turns
up the holistic elements true to title.
Probably the book for you if you want
a book which is expansive enough to
consider spiritual and mental elements.
The holistic expansion also includes
pretty much of a "kitchen soup"
set of supplements and the rationale,
science, and or research motivation
behind it is a bit light for my tastes.
I guess I'm also a little troubled by the head
long jump into candiasis/candida
controversy and branching into
"Sinus Survival" products
and marketing. In other words
there's a stronger "leap
of faith" element then the original.
And I'm starting to feel like there's
a "Sinus Survival" cottage industry.
While it is nice to see a more holistic
consideration of this material a note of
skepticism would of appealed a bit more.
But the optimist in me hopes I'm completely
wrong about all this!
