I have had the privilege of working closely with Rob Ivker for over 15 years. As co-authors, we have published a study of the treatment of chronic sinusitis patients in the peer-reviewed medical journal Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine.
I want to issue the strongest possible endorsement for the validity of his work with debilitated chronic sinusitis and respiratory disease patients.

I’ve been well aware of Dr. Ivker’s work since early in 1989, after reading the first edition ofSinus Survival. I immediately began recommending the book and aspects of his Sinus Survival Program to my patients (as well as to other physicians), and have continually been impressed with the results. I watched the book grow from 70 to more than 350 pages as his holistic medical treatment for respiratory disease expanded. I’m continually reminded of the remarkable effectiveness of his program. From 1992 to 2006 I served with Dr. Ivker on the board of directors of both the American Holistic Medical Association and the American Board of Holistic Medicine and watched him evolve as a healer and leader. I consider him to be a healthcare visionary and one of the chief architects of 21st century medicine. I know that if I were sick, he would be the doctor I would turn to.

I have been a practicing physician for 40 years. A significant improvement occurred in the lives of my patients with respiratory problems (asthma, bronchitis, sinusitis, nasal allergies) shortly after I started to follow the protocols suggested by Dr. Ivker in his book Sinus Survival. The positive changes in my patients were dramatic, specific, consistent, and clearly related to the fact that they were now following Dr. Ivker’s protocol. I had previously been using the traditional medical protocols and pharmaceuticals with only limited success and oftentimes only temporary results.
Our usual medical approach tends to be focused more on eliminating symptoms rather than going to the root causes of the problems. It frequently turns out there are multiple causes for the respiratory problems even if they were triggered by one event. These causes can involve not only the environment but also the mental, emotional, nutritional and spiritual components, and they often are quite variable with each individual. Our present system of not addressing these multiple, important, causative factors leaves many patients unable to achieve a maximum state of recovery.
Based on my experience with hundreds of patients with respiratory problems, I can almost guarantee that patients who commit to following Dr. Ivker’s protocol will show significant improvement. It is a treatment program that I highly recommend.

Dr. Ivker stands as one of the true pioneers in Integrative medicine.
As a leader for both the American Holistic Medical Association and in the American Board of Holistic Medicine, he has been instrumental in the evolution of cutting edge health care in the United States. Dr. Ivker defined the holistic treatment of respiratory illness. More than that, he truly walks the talk and embodies holism. I know him as a true leader and a visionary. I wholeheartedly endorse his compassionate approach to the care of the whole person.
