With the holidays upon us, we all are having a hard time eating right. Well, maybe I wouldn’t call it a hard time because it tastes so darn good. Anyway, I’ve had many people come up to me and say that they’ve read that wine is good for you for example. Well, part of it is, but not the alcohol. Likewise, many people have asked...


Sorry folks but I couldn’t sit still any longer without throwing in my two cents about this swine flu fiasco. We’ve all been reading about how this is spreading and how schools have shut down for one case and travel is being considered restricted to certain areas. Why? Pandemic? The CDC has not convinced me. First the statistics are not there and second it’s the wrong kind of flu.

In many of the journals I have been reading, scientists have been reporting about a breakthrough therapy to lower the risk of developing some of the most common and deadly diseases by over ¾. The therapy is a new concept called, “taking care of yourself”. Namely stop smoking, exercise regularly, eat a healthy diet and maintain a healthy...

Every time I turn around there is another article or program about soy. First, it’s good for you then it is bad, then it’s good then it’s…ENOUGH! Here is my take on this subject and believe me, this is a subject where there seems to be two very distinct and different opinions. Here’s mine.

Soy is a bean. It is...

Here are some tricks of the trade I’ve found to help you stay healthy.

1) Avoid Pasteurized Milk: Milk is the most common source of allergies in America. Why? Because of all the chemicals and hormones that are fed to the animals to increase their milk production. Those same things pass into the milk...

Twenty Acids You Need

By: Clifford Sonnie, M.D., M.P.H.

A while ago I wrote about the importance of proteins. I mentioned that they were important as a source of amino acids and were vital in our diet as we are unable to store proteins like we can fats and carbohydrates (some of us better than others). Well, I’ve gotten a lot of questions about these amino acids so I thought I’d talk...

U.T.I. 101


Did you know that the most common cause of bacterial infections in the U.S. today is urinary tract infections (UTI)? In fact, about 1/3 of all women will have at least one UTI before their 24th birthday and once a woman contracts a UTI the chance of getting it again is 1 in 5. The frequency of a man contracting a UTI is much, much less....

Vitamin D: The Forgotten Vitamin

Vitamin D is like the kid in the movie “Home Alone”. Everyone knows it’s there and is a part of good health but no one knows exactly where it is or what it is doing. It’s only been in the past 5 or 6 years that vitamin D’s real value and requirements have been studied.

First of all, what does Vitamin D do? It’s pretty simple really. Vitamin D controls calcium and phosphorus...

To Vitamin or Not to Vitamin, That is the Question

By: Clifford Sonnie, M.D. M.P.H.

Why should I take vitamins? It’s nothing more than another pill and all it will do is to give you expensive urine. I have heard this said by countless numbers of physicians and in fact, if you had asked me twenty years ago, I probably would have said the same thing. It’s what we were taught in school and it’s...

What is all the fuss about cholesterol?

By Clifford M. Sonnie, M.D., M.P.H.

Every so often the news gets a hold of this and the advertisers plaster the TV about cholesterol. Seems to me that no one really knows what cholesterol is all about. After all the “normal” level has moved up and down so much since I was in medical school that it looks like a yo-yo. I wonder, did the level go down when a new cholesterol-lowering...
