Now, after years of research, interviews, and personal and professional experience, Debra Fulghum Bruce and Murray Grossan, M.D., share cures from the top healthcare specialists and

From the Trade Paperback edition.

While pain and misery are two things all sinus sufferers have in common, the similarities may well end there. According to authors Debra Fulghum Bruce, a health journalist, and Dr. Murray Grossan, a board-certified otolaryngologist and head and neck surgeon, each person's particular brand of sinusitis is unique and calls for individually tailored treatment. By relying on a multidisciplinary approach that combines some tried-and-true treatments with a few new approaches, Bruce and Grossan believe that most patients can control, even cure, their sinus problems.

In this comprehensive, well-organized new guide, the authors recommend a comprehensive healing program designed around seven steps: making a correct diagnosis, using nasal irrigation, considering complementary treatments, cleaning the air, eating right, reducing stress, and choosing effective medical treatments. The book's introductory chapter thoroughly explores the causes and types of sinusitis as well as its link to other respiratory ailments such as asthma and allergies. Thoughtful chapters on the value of holistic treatments, herbal remedies, and good nutrition provide welcome direction for patients interested in natural medicine. The treatment of ear and throat complications is also addressed in detail. While the object of this book is to help the patient avoid surgery, Grossan and Bruce do concede that sometimes it's the only cure for really debilitating conditions. Their final chapter explores this option--why it might be necessary and how to prepare for it.

Grossan claims that while each patient will apply the seven steps to varying degrees according his or her own situation, nasal irrigation in particular is key to relief. By frequently cleansing the sinuses with saline solution, mucus, bacteria, and allergens are gently removed and the chance of infection reduced. It is important to note that the irrigation process the doctor most heartily recommends requires using a device called the Pulsatile Nasal Irrigator invented by Dr. Grossan himself. --Marianne Painter

Customer Reviews:

  • Comprehensive review for the layman
    A good review of sinus disease and management written to allow the non-physician to gain from reading it....more info
  • Highly Recommend. Great book and the therapies work!!
    This book changed my life from one of congestion and fatigue to one of deep breathing again!! I particularly found the complementary and alternative medicine therapies to be useful, so I could cut back on medications that caused me to feel exhausted all the time. The nasal saline irrigation helped get rid of the junk in my nose. Great book!!! I cannot believe I've suffered for so long with such a common chronic problem. Recommended to anyone with this ailment....more info
  • SUPERB SINUS REFERENCE
    This book helped me understand WHY my sinuses continued to get infected--even after staying on horrible antibiotics for weeks. Using the different therapies in this book (keeping mucus thin, avoiding triggers, using saline rinses), I have not had an antibiotic for seven months (a record for me!!). Anyway, easy to read and more importantly--EASY TO UNDERSTAND AND IMPLEMENT!!
    I'm just so grateful for this book. Unless you suffer with chronic sinusitis, you have no idea how miserable your life can be. Each chapter detailed more and more self-care steps I could use--and I did!! The many "success" stories of men and women "long-time sufferers of sinusitis" let me know that I could learn to manage this problem. The holistic program helped to put me back in control of my sinus problem--and overall health--and let me finally say GOODBYE to antibiotic therapy, which was nothing more than a bandaid for me. THANK YOU DR. GROSSAN AND DEBRA BRUCE. The book changed my life....more info
  • Snort - Hock - this book can change your life!
    If you have sinus trouble - GET THIS BOOK! If a family member has sinus trouble - suggest this book. It has changed our lives - we just had the worst pollen season and this book allows us to breath again. The headaches are a thing of the past. Highly recommend this book....more info
  • GREAT BOOK on stopping sinusitis and rhinitis.
    Excellent book!! If you suffer with nasal allergies, sinusitis or sinus headache, or chronic rhinitis, I recommend this book to you. It will explain why you suffer and give you myriad ways to relieve the constant congestion, drainage, pain, and infection. The book is definitely worth the money!! Good luck, too....more info
  • Thrilled to know about other solutions besides antibiotics!
    I am thrilled to have read this book and know that there are a whole spectrum of choices out there to try for sinus problems other than antibiotics! I have been a sinus sufferer for over 2 yrs. now with allergies causing sinus headaches, pressure and dizziness. Multiple courses of antibiotics have not completely helped and I decided to read and research what I can do to help myself and try solutions that the doctors I've seen have not been thorough about. This book has given me so much hope and I have tried several of the solutions - warm, moist compress, hot tea, drinking lots of water, papaya enzymes and Neti Pot. So far, so good, but I'm sure it'll take a few weeks to get into a routine. I have been so disappointed with some of the other reviews of this book accusing the writers of heavily promoting Grossan's Hydropulse irrigation system. In fact, the system only features in a small section of the book, and the book is SO much more than promotion, it gives a whole wide spectrum of suggestions and choices that one can try to help themselves. I would highly recommend this book to give yourself some hope and also the Harvard Medical School Guide to Healing Your Sinuses.

  • I can breathe thanks to this book. The Sinus Cure
    Thank you for this book. Finally, after years of mouth breathing because of constant congestion, I can breathe through my nose again (something most people take for granted). The book was extremely well written and easy to read. I'd recommend to anyone who has allergies, sinusitis, rhinitis or other respiratory problems. It gives you HOPE!!...more info

  • I wish I had this info 25 years ago!
    I have suffered from sinus infections all my life, 6 or more per year. Since I started following the information in this book, I have dropped to one or so per year. I highly recommend the sinus irrigation detailed in the book. I use a WaterPik and the nasal attachment for it. I wish I had known about this as a kid because I would not have wasted so much time being sick. ...more info
  • Excellent
    Having sinus problems my whole life, I found this book a breath of fresh air! Easy to follow and very helpful!...more info
  • What a great resource
    I just want everyone to now that I bought this book because I thought I couldn't live with these allergies and sinus problems any more. I found information and facts in this book I hadn't found or read anywhere else. I love the practical recommendations and approaches to dealing with this situation. I really helped me....more info
  • Started feeling better, and continuing
    Honestly, I bought this book at a health food store, and not from Amazon. Now that I've gotten that out of the way, let me tell you that I would STRONGLY recommend this book. It had a good amount of information all in one place about allergies, asthma, and sinusitis. The nasal irrigation that is reccomended (one whole chapter) works very well, and has given me remarkable results that I did NOT get from just using salt water and a neti pot. There was some very helpful information here that I thought was well-reasoned and backed by evidence. Nothing crazy, just stuff that works. The most important thing, I have been suffering, and I feel so much better!! thanks!...more info
  • Sinus Cures by Grossan et al.
    This book defines sinusitis and explains simple and
    inexpensive treatment modalities to manage the condition.
    Sinus troubles usually commence with inflammation of the
    facial cavities around the nose. The sinuses are drawn
    to specification. These areas include the frontal, ethmoid and
    maxillary sinuses. The author points to a PULSATILE NASAL
    IRRIGATOR. This instrument is perfected by getting a WATER PIK
    and connecting an irrigator to it. The treatment involves
    placing the tip of the water pik in one nostril, bending over the
    sink, turning the device on and allowing a saline solution to
    pass from one nasal to the next. The process is called
    GROSSAN'S PNI . The authors describe potential damage to the
    celia of the nose via antihistamines. ice drinks, codeine and
    chromium dust just to mention a few. Certain herbal preps
    help sinusitis. These are anise, astragalus, bee pollen,
    borage oil, echinacea, eucalyptus, garlic, ginger, ginseng,
    sage, thyme and pycnogenol. Non-invasive chiropractic,
    hand massages and acupuncture are classic treatments which
    are known to alleviate the classic symptoms. This book would
    be very helpful to the average person having little knowledge
    about the sinuses . It is written in simple English.
    The information content of the work describes conventional
    and alternative medicinal approaches. For this reason alone,
    the book is reasonable because it would cost thousands of
    dollars to replicate the information contained herein . This work
    contains many important diagnostic and treatment details which
    you may want to review with the family physician. It is a
    worthy addition to any health reference library....more info
  • Excellent Sinus Self-Help Book
    I highly recommend this book to anyone who suffers with chronic sinus headaches and post nasal drip. I had post nasal drip so badly that I could not sleep without coughing. This book gave me NEW WAYS to end it. Excellent resource that can help you END an annoying problem....more info
  • This book gave me my life back
    After 10 years of chronic sinusitis and two surgeries which aggrivated the problem more than helping it, this book gave me suggestions that have kept me off antibiotics and returned my sense of smell. The sinus irriagtor has been instrumental. Thank you Ms. Bruce and Dr. Grossan. I only wish I had found this book sooner. -Joanne...more info
  • Excellent book for a chronic problem. I recommend to anyone.
    great read--and good info for those who suffer with sinus problems. Gave new insight and therapies that my doctor had not shared....more info

  • Relief at last with this book. Thank you!
    Thank you Drs Bruce & Grossan. I have suffered with chronic sinusitis for YEARS--my whole life, it seems. I had almost given up hope that I could ever feel healthy again as the constant infections made me tired and achy. My head hurt 24/7.

    But this book changed my life. Your program is superb and easy. I now combine a nasal steroid spray with saline irrigation DAILY. I have not had medication (except for a decongestant) for about 5 months. I highly recommend that if you have sinusitis, you should READ this book and follow the program. It will give you back your life!...more info

  • Indepth, scientifically accurate, excellent resource.
    An excellent read for those with allergies and sinusitis. The authors talk about how sinusitis occurs, triggers that may start the miserable chain reaction of congestion, post nasal drip, cough and headache pain, and treatments--ranging from alternative medical therapies to the most effective medicine available. I highly recommend this book. The best of all I've read--and the most down to earth. I read Iker's book and it was too ethereal--never found another that gave really strong science along with practical "how-to"--until this book came along. Good luck. Best book on the topic....more info
  • SOME Good Advice
    I bought this book out of complete desperation. I have suffered more than 20 years with chronic infections. I have done it all 2 sinus surgeries, allergy meds, allergy shots and home remedies. This book did provide some great education on diet tips, sinus irrigation, allergies and asthma. I think it is a great book if you are lost and are unaware of contributing factors. However, all these remedies have helped a little, but I still suffer terribly. So where to go from here??...more info
  • Is this Robert Fulghum's cousin? Another author? Good book
    Excellent book and so easy to read. Another Fulghum author? A daughter perhaps? Interesting!! Maybe you should write ALL I NEED TO KNOW ABOUT SINUSES--I LEARNED FROM LIFE or something!! Super book, thanks!!...more info
  • I can now sleep thanks to this book! RECOMMEND
    After months of chronic congestion from infections that were horrible, I found this book at a local bookstore in Boston. I read the book in one morning (very easy to read)--and then starting using some of the natural suggestions to end sinusitis. I could not believe the difference in how I felt one week later. My congestion was minimal and I did not have a headache. I started sleeping better at night, which helped my overall mood--and it probably boosted my immune function, too. Anyway--if you suffer with sinusitis--DON'T. There is hope and help. Read this book. Follow the doctors' advice. You will feel better!!!...more info
