Symptoms of Sinus Infection

Acute Sinusitis-Diagnosis & Symptoms

     Primary Symptoms

            • Head Congestion
            • Headache and/or facial pain
            • Significant fatigue
            • Yellow-Green mucus from nose or post nasal drainage.


It is very difficult for physicians to make a definitive diagnosis of a sinus infection. However, if you have most or all of these symptoms for two weeks or more, you most likely have a sinus infection. Regardless of what it is called: acute sinusitis, sinus infection, sinusitis, or a bad cold, following the Dr. Ivker Quick Fix Natural program will reduce the severity of the symptoms and reduce the time to elimination.


The key is to take decisive action quickly, at the first sign of symptoms. The majority who do, are able to avoid a full-blown cold or sinus infection before it gets started.  We recommend to always have the Core 4 Plus Sinus Survival Products and Allimed on-hand.

A Cold for 2 Weeks = Sinus Infection


Landmark Study: 87% Found to Have Sinus Infection

1993, Jack Gwaltney, M.D.,

University of Virginia at Charlottesville

In 1993, a landmark study demonstrated that 87% of college students and employees who thought they had the common cold actually had a sinus infection. This was diagnosed as a result of a CT/cat scan, the more definitive test for diagnosing sinusitis. The vast majority of people who think they have a simple cold actually have a sinus infection, called acute sinusitis, as an integral part of the cold.

    Well right now you have two options.1. go see a dctoor. require some TESTS to be done see what it is, what could be causing it. if they don’t do any kind of swab test, GO TO ANOTHER DOCTOR that will do it. you are paying for the visit! if it is a real sinus infection, then don’t take any prescription medicine or anything OTC because then you’ll have sinus infections FOR LIFE.2. Decide that your sinus infections can be due to your DIET. if you drink a lot of milk, eat a lot of sugar, eat a lot of white bread (bread with yeast in it) , all of that can cause mucus to build up. (there’s mucus in milk from the cows, you cant exactly filter it out) so that’s making your mucus worse. Eat a lot of vegetables. Eat rye bread with no yeast in it. Try taking a supplement like GSE (Grapefruit Seed Extract) which is a natural anti fungal. Fungus in your body is linked to allergies (food allergies especially). Never eat out (no mcdonalds or even subway is somewhat unhealthy) . Don’t drink coffee or alcohol or tea because all those dehydrate you. Make sure you drink a lot of water. (But not too much to where you start throwing it up ) If you go days without having JUST WATER (juice doesn’t count) it can all lead to mucus buildup b/c your system is dry and i think that causess more things to stick to you. Well i’m not a dctoor, but i’ve learned quite a few things from dealing with health problems. And one thing i’ve learned is that 70% of the time, your dctoor makes you sicker

      Great post. You are no doctor, but you could educate a few. It appears that you have learned the secret to your own condition and to help others.
      If you are interested, I would like to provide you with a FREE membership to our Sinus Survival On-line Kit. It retails for a one-time $89. It is a great education from World Renowned Dr. Rob Ivker. I was a patient of his over 4 years ago. I had chronic sinusitis for over 10 years and the norm in the medical field was to give me more antibiotics, more steroid nasal spray and more drugs and I got worse and worse. I was getting 5 or 6 sinus infections a year and had symptoms year long and was miserable. By following an all-natural approach, I uncovered all of the factors which were causing my condition of inflamed mucous membrane and chronic sinusitis. It was the perfect storm of things that kept me in a cycle of misery from diet, food allergies, candida overgrowth, polluted indoor air, compromised immune function, reaction to the steroid nasal sprays etc.

      Send me an email to if you are interested in the free membership. I am willing to provide this to you to get your feedback as a test.
      I send these out from time-to-time to our great blogging audience (this isn’t a spam or trick).
