Dr. Ivker’s Top Three (Which Should Be Yours as Well)
By Ellen Goldberg, Sinus Coach
Two of these oils have been used for centuries by indigenous Australians, one oil has been around since before 1500 BC. Today they’re used in modern medicine, in homeopathy and in many household products & shampoos.
Numerous studies have shown their effectiveness at addressing viruses, bacteria, germs, and fungus. They’re medicinal and natural (if you get the right kind) and you don’t need a prescription to put them to use.
Everyone should have them in their home. The unlimited uses make them a must-have. Knock out a cold at the first sign of a sore throat. Stop dry sinus headaches. Eliminate a sinus infection. Relieve the itch in bug bites. Target acne, dandruff, and many other conditions that crop up.
Dr. Ivker researched each of these oils and sourced only the medicine oils available. The majority of these oils that are in stores or the web come from China, are poor quality, and are not considered medicinal.
Top Oil Number One: Eucalyptus Oil Spray (Australia)
This is a great daily-use product for anyone with sinus pain or pressure. Just spray eucalyptus oil on a napkin and breathe in; add it to a steamer and feel it open your nasal passages. Spray it in your steam shower and feel the medicinal benefits to open your sinuses and spirits. Spray it on a bug bite to stop the itch. Spray on your neck to avoid getting mosquito bites.
Pure Eucalyptus oil is antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and has analgesic properties.
Out of the 150+ species of Eucalyptus trees, there are less than 10 that are medicinal. All 9 of these come from Australia. “You won’t get the benefits of the medicinal properties unless you only use specific species of Eucalyptus,” says Dr. Rob Ivker. “It was difficult to find this pure form from a specific medicinal species of Eucalyptus from Australia. For this reason, the Sinus Survival Eucalyptus Spray has been popular for years with my patients. I spray it on a napkin and hand to a new patient and they usually say, wow.”
Top Oil Number Two: Tea Tree Oil from Australia
Tea tree oil’s unique ability to address bacteria, fungi, and viruses has made it one of Dr. Rob Ivker’s go-to remedies.
Studies have shown tea tree oil’s effectiveness at treating many respiratory issues including the first sign of a cold, sore throat, post-nasal drip, and runny noses. It has been used to treat bronchitis and other respiratory conditions.
Its triple properties address ALL of the possible causes of sinusitis (a sinus infection, acute sinusitis, fungal sinusitis) which can be from viral, bacterial, or fungal infections. Antibiotics only target one infection, bacterial infections, which studies have shown are less than 5-10% of cases.
Sinus Congestion: Add a drop to your index finger or a Q-tip and swab under or just inside the nose.
Sore Throat & Cold Symptoms: Add 4 drops in a small glass of warm water, gargle, then spit out.
Sinus Infection or Colds:
– Steaming: Add 2 drops of Sinus Survival Tea Tree Oil & Sinus Survival Peppermint Oil into the Sinus Survival Steamer’s water chamber and breathe in for 10 to 15 minutes. Repeat 2x to 3x daily during infection/cold. For even better results, add a few sprays of Sinus Survival Eucalyptus Oil. This provides warm mist relief to open dry, swollen sinuses and helps address infection. Note: It’s recommended to Follow Dr. Ivker’s Quick Fix process, available to Free Sinus Center Members to download.
– Hot Tea: Add one drop to hot water and drink as a tea 3x a day during cold or infection.
– Plantar warts: rub tea tree oil directly on the wart and let dry.
– Acne – Add tea tree oil (5% to 10%) to acne cream, face gel, or jojoba oil.
– Dandruff or just for healthy scalp and hair – Add 4 drops into your shampoo for daily use. As a treatment, add 15 drops to a carrier oil like jojoba oil, coconut oil, even olive oil, and rub into your scalp and hair. Let it sit for at least an hour or overnight, then shampoo.
– Household – Since tea tree oil is antibacterial, you can add this to water and spray to add freshness to a room, spray where there’s mold, use in laundry, and many other uses.
Top Oil Number Three: Peppermint Oil
For thousands of years, people have used peppermint oil for a variety of medicinal purposes, including as a natural decongestant. Because of its high menthol content, this natural extract creates a cooling sensation as well as a refreshing, sinus-opening scent. By combining pure jojoba oil, used commercially and in “folk remedies” for its regenerative properties for the skin, this essential product is soothing to the skin without being overpowering to the nose.
Sinus Survival Essentials Oil brings quick relief to congested sinuses. It’s refreshing and provides relief for a stuffy nose.
Apply after using the Herbal Nasal Spray. Just rub a couple drops of peppermint oil between your index finger and thumb, and then gently massage the skin around your nostrils. You will feel the benefits in minutes and it will last for hours.
When you breathe deeply, you’ll love the brisk, cool feeling that natural menthol delivers!
Peppermint has many other beneficial uses including:
- Rub into sore muscles to relieve tension.
- Rub into temples to help relieve a headache and mental fatigue.
- Shingles – rub on infected area to calm the pain.
- Studies show its benefits to pass through the skin to help stop recurring herpes infections.
- Add to shampoos and lotions to eliminate dandruff or lice. Use with tea tree oil for added benefits.
Based on the studies, research, and the feedback from Dr. Ivker’s patients and the Sinus Survival customers, these three medicinal oils are a must for every family. Because they are all-natural, they are safe for daily use when following directions.
Fortunately, a little bit goes a long way and they’re quick and easy to use. Each of these oils are great as gifts, stocking stuffers, and to put in your guest bathroom as a great surprise.
