Just recently I have been looking for natural remedies to my day to day issues I just can't get rid of. Today, I feel congested and I'm coughing up things I shouldn't have to. After reading your webpage on Sinus Infections, I realized I did have ice cream two days ago. I ate two fat boy ice cream sandwiches on Sunday and now on Tuesday I feel so congested. Interesting tip, and keep them coming.

I have definitely seen a connection between Baskin Robbins ice-cream and my sinus problems. Three times I've traced the onset of my sinus infection to that particular ice cream.Over this past year I have been building my immune system by taking oil of oregano, ACV and other vitamins. However,after I came down with flu-like symptoms with-in twenty-four hours of eating it the last time, I poured hydrogen peroxide in both my ears and stopped it in its track.

Was very interested in sinus attacks after ice cream, I suffer terrible sinus & it has just occured to me that more so when I eat ice cream, for a while there I would eat it every night after my main meal. i am going to try the apple cider, as I quite often go through 1-2 pkts of sinus tabs a week & it can't be any good for me. Also I am a great believer in colloidal silver, since taking it I have hardly had a cold & if I get the early signs of a cold it doesn't turn into a cold.

Sinus infections can begin with all dairy, not just ice cream, included are cheese, milk, and yogurt to name a few. I've had instances of all.

That used to be true for us in our youth, but with strict diet we built up an ability to have small amounts of healthy dairy from time to time with no problems what so ever. We would occasionally have cheese from the Pyrenees mountains, sheep's milk mixed with cow, or from Italy, made purely without hormones and such. We would also every blue moon buy organic salt-free butter and that would be fine. We have had organic ice cream from time to time with no problem at all. It's only recently have we given in and tried a mainstream store bought ice cream with LOTS of artificial colour in it, it looked so fake, and it made us both very ill. I even have a small amount of lactose intolerance when drinking milk, but can name 4 brands of ice cream from the health food store that won't make me sick. I was told I could never eat cheese after having sinus surgery in my teens. I eat cheese like I mentioned at least every 3 weeks with no side affects. We suspect it's the things ADDED to these mainstream foods that aren't organic or having completely all natural ingrediants that come from cows that aren't injected with chemicals and the industrial processes are cleaner and different than mainstream processes. That's our new theory, since it's become obvious that clean safe dairy doesn't make us sick but the mainstream brands make us very ill. Everyone is different!

This is the most extraordinary thing I've encountered (and I'm already familiar with many complemetary therapies) I've had a very severe sinus infection for over 5 weeks, which has not responded to 5 different antibiotics. It started when my daughter had Whooping Cough, so I thought it had been caused by the pertussis bacteria. I now realise from your website that it was due to ice cream, which I don't normally eat but was buying regularly for my daughter when she was sick (and eating loads myself!) I've just tried a strong solution of ACV in water and can breathe for the 1st time in weeks.I thought I was going to have to have surgery. The words thank you have never seemed so inadequate (especially as so many sites are just out to sell you their cures not just share them as you do).

I want to comment on the " ice cream causes sinus infection" statements. I have not had any dairy of any kind in over 20 years. No white sugar, no soda pops or any junk food for 20 years. I have, most of the time, sinus infections.Yes, dairy does cause sinus infections- I know it always did for the first 20 years of my life. But something else is causing it in me now and it is not food.

Wow, 6 hours after eating half a cup of a Dairy Queen Snickers Blizzard, I had the beginnings of a sinus infection that lasted 6 days.

Believe it or not... yesterday I had a vanilla/chocolate dipped cone from Dairy Queen. Today, I'm miserable!! Sinus headache, post nasal drip... scratchy throat etc. I even went out and bought a cool mist humidifier. Out of desperation for what I feel lies close ahead, I decided to search the web for home remedies before heading for bed (to wrestle the body aches). Thankful to have found your site. Tomorrow, apple cider vinegar, here I come!!!

Wow, I couldn't believe what I read about the ice cream. I've had ice cream several times in the last week, and I have also incurred a sinus infection. That's the reason I was searching the web for remedies!

I was amazed, but not surprised to read about others who suffer flu-like symptoms after eating ice cream. I usually get a headache and increased sinus pressure from any milk product but the last time I was really sick was when I had eaten a Blizzard from Dairy Queen. That has been several years ago but I haven't forgotten how sick I was for a week or so. Milk products, in general, do a number on me but ice cream is especially harmful.

I couldn't believe it when I read the ice cream correlation. I am temporarily living in Italy and I find that I also have the same sinus infection reaction after eating locally made Italian ice cream.

Ice cream must really have a link to sinus infections. Last night I went to Rafferties Bar and Grill. I ordered a Mudslide. Of course it has alcohol, but another ingredient was ice cream. This morning I woke up with a sinus infection from HELL! I can't shake it. I hope that Apple Cider Vinegar works. I have a date this weekend. I'll let everyone know the details, about the AVC of course

This is weird, but I had a shake from Baskin Robbins on Saturday night, and the next afternoon I started getting symptoms of a sinus infection. I ran a fever on Monday, and today I can hardly breathe.

I recently had a sinus infection/flu-like symptoms 24 hrs after going to Baskin Robbins. I shared a sundae with my boyfriend and we both didn't fill well the next day. I just seemed to feel worse and for several days. I'm going to definitely try the vinegar!!!
