I had been dealing with a sinus infection for about 10 days and on the 10th day of treatment I had some ice-cream and I immediately was sick all over again. I felt worse than I had when I was first diagnosis 10 days prior. Now, I feel as if I have to start all over again. This is not an easy ailment to deal with and I often what is the cure. The ice-cream was Breyers and not Baskin Robbins so I'm wondering if any and all ice-cream can cause the relapse of a sinus infection.

I have been a big dairy products consumer for years. I always liked to drink milk (and sometimes milk shakes) before going to bed as it would help settle my stomach. However, over the past 10 or more years, I had started to come down with sinus infections from time to time. Instead of going to the doctor for the usual medication, I decided to see if there was anything in the way of natural cures that might help. After seeing this site, I am consuming less dairy products (especially ice cream)...and I have noticed a difference. I'm also going to try the ACV.

I've read that Baskin Robbins Ice Cream is loaded with sorbitol, which is a killer for me. Maybe that's what's behind all the headaches with that brand. Anything with "ol" on the end or "modified food starch" is also a sugar alcohol, same as sorbitol. I say stay away from all that stuff "tweaked"

I had a root beer float a couple of hours ago and although I have been suffering from a sinus infection for a few days, all of my symptoms just got a LOT worse. There HAS to be a connection!

A couple of weeks ago, I started "milking my diet" as advertised on TV. I was drinking 24 oz. of milk every 24 hours, and I developed a serious sinus infection. Went to the Doctors, and was put on antibiotics, which really didn't help. I started feeling better after about 3 weeks, and decided to start up my diet and exercise regimen again, which included drinking the 24 ounces of milk again. Sure as the sky is blue, I am suffering from another sinus infection. Apple cider vinegar and lots of water has helped but I know now that the excessive amounts of dairy are inducing my symptoms and will discontinue drinking that much of any dairy products.

The answer is simple.. EVERYONE is allergic in some degree to dairy products. They are natural mucoids. Most people do not even realize they are allergic to dairy, but everyone is. If you cut out dairy products (all) for two weeks you will see an increase in the ability to breath, less spitting and such if you work out and even an increase in stamina... without doing any work. Add this to an allergy, cold season, and take someone who may not have the best health practices (most of us Americans:) ) and you have a recipe for sinusitis. Dairy is horrible... I urge you all to research how diary products seriously hinder the body's functionality and indeed the human potential in all of us.

It's the sugar!! Sorry, but the junk food has got to go! These highly processed foods contain bad oils, empty calories, and chemicals. Worse, they lack the nutrition we need to maintain our health. Eliminating the use of refined white sugar and flour altogether is highly important. Fighting colds a lot? Consider that eating or drinking 100 grams (8 tsp.) of sugar, the equivalent of one 12-ounce can of soda, can reduce the ability of white blood cells to kill germs by forty percent. The immune-suppressing effect of sugar starts less than thirty minutes after ingestion and may last for five hours. In contrast, the ingestion of complex carbohydrates, or starches, which are low glycemic, has no effect on the immune system.

Every time I drink a Baskin Robbins Chocolate milk Shake, I come down with a Sinus infection and flu like symptoms. (chills, headache). Usually within twenty four hours. I never realized it was the shake until now.

Dreyer's Rocky Road Ice Cream is the cause of my sinus infection. I ate too much of it last year and the symptoms worsen every time I eat it. Of course, I've toned it down quite a bit. Thanks for the natural remedies suggested.

wow ...I never knew there was a link between the Baskin Robbins ice cream and sinus infections. I thought it was only me. Every time I have a decaf cappuccino blast my throat gets really sore and scratchy and I am sick for several days. I had one the other day too and now I have a horrible sinus infection my face hurts sooo bad and I can't wait for the antibiotics to start working.

I recently was in Malaysia, and I ate two big scopes of Baskin Robbins cherry's gracia ice cream. The week and a half before I felt fine, but the last few days there I suddenly became ill. I had not been sick in years. I originally thought it was because that was my first time in another country, but why didn't I get sick after only a few days. I developed flu like symptoms after 24 hours of eating the ice cream.

You've just made me discover why my nose infection is recurrent. Ice-cream... is a very possible cause!?!? Golden Gay Times, Bulla and Peters icecreams all seem to affect me!! My nose is inflammed, sore, and it irritates something terrible! Have just started ACV today after discovering your website last week...here i go.

This might just be a coincidence. I NEVER eat ice cream!!!! But the other day I felt like indulging and I ate a lot of mint ice cream. It wasn't baskin robbins. That night my husband said he thought I might have fever. I felt fine so I didn't really pay attention. The next morning I woke up with the worst sinus infection ever!!! My head is about to explode and I am very congested. I read this article and I can't believe the coincidence.
