5.0 out of 5 starsSimple, common sense and effective
Reviewed in the United States on March 15, 2014
For people like me that have persistent nasal and sinus problems and are seeking relief, this is the book for you! I have had problems from allergies, sinus infections, deviated septum and perforated septum for decades. Constant sniffly, runny nose, sinus headaches have ruined many a day, and crusting after having a septal button placed have made this an issue I've had to deal with on a daily basis. I've been advised by ENT's on solutions and techniques to deal with these problems and had some sucess but not enough to be comfortable. Kents book brings together common sense methods and practices that readers can incorporate into their daily lives to relieve symptoms from cold, flu and allegies AND to prevent them in the future!
5.0 out of 5 starsIf you have sinus problems, GET THIS BOOK!

I'm 42 years old and for the first half of my life I didn't realize I had a sinus problem until one day when my Aunt called and I answered the phone, I rarely talked to her because she was far away. When she answered she asked me if I had a cold, and I said yep I guess so and she said "you always have a cold". When I thought about it she was right! I always had a sinus thing going on.
People at work called me "Sneezy", others joked that I was putting the wrong stuff up my nose because my nose was so constantly stuffy and running and my eyes were red and watery. I never left home without Aprodine - a hard core behind the counter cold medicine. Works great, but with horrible side effects: jitters, chills, extreme sensitivity to mood swings (Anger), thirst, constipation, tiredness (I'd have to take a 2 hour nap when I'd take that stuff OR compensate the tiredness with a 4 shot americano)... but hey I could breath through my nose. (sarcasm). Who knows what it was doing to my internal organs & the rest of my body.
When it was bad I could not sleep, when I did fall asleep, normally I'd wake up at some point during the night, my nose would immediately start itching and dripping, and would not stop until I fell back asleep, but I couldn't falll asleep when it was soooo itchy. It literally felt like a feather was about 2 inches up my nose moving around. On a night like this (10 Months ago) my nose woke me up again... and I was up at 2 am for the day because there was no way i was going back to sleep. So I thought there must be a book on Audible about curing the cold (yeah right). So at 2 AM I looked it up and found this book, listened to the whole thing that night (only 1 1/2 hours) and implemented his suggestion right away.
That was 10 months ago - I execute his plan at about 20% of what he recommends and STILL I have been FREE of sinus problems for 10 months! This is amazing, this is big news. I wasn't the type to go to the doctor about this, because I'm not a fan of drugs. But I can not believe that in the past 10 months I've used cold medicine about 3 times, when normally it would be 2 - 10 times per month. The times I've had to use cold medicine is when I was not doing his suggestions AT ALL. I've only used Aprodine (the hard stuff) once, and Benadryl a couple time. I quit doing the procedures because I felt fine and forgot. Now regardless of how I feel, I do it every morning in the shower with filtered water and as we move into cold season I'll start throughout the day and before bed as well.
Thanks Mr. Kent Clizbe for sharing your experience with me and the world! It's November 3rd, cold season is around the corner. I'm curious to see how I'll fare during November, December, January - normally very bad cold months for me. I'll update the review after that time, but as I sit here breathing through both nostrils, I have a great outlook!
Author spent 40% of the text bashing the pharmaceutical industry, 30% of the text educating people on how they get colds and what their body does when they get one, 15% describing cold symptoms in as graphic and disgustingly as possible, 10% telling us the same things people have said for years about washing hands and staying away from sick people, and 5% telling us how to correctly wash our noses. I found this to be basically a waste of time. I read it for free with Kindle Unlimited or I would be asking for my money back. If you do decide to read it, save yourself time and skip to chapter 10.
