Cliff’s Notes

10 TRICKS FOR GOOD HEALTH

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

Over the past several articles I have written about things like Vitamin D, Calcium, the Myth about Cholesterol and the Thyroid. I was trying to think of a new topic while I was jogging at Reagan Park and it occurred to me that the weather is breaking and soon we can spend a lot more time outdoors playing. Can’t enjoy doing that if...

A GREAT WEEKEND, A GOOD ATTITUDE

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

I wasn’t going to write an article this week. Instead I had planned to spend the whole Father’s Day weekend with my son. Well, it’s 1AM on Monday morning and my son is asleep. I could not have had a better time. We had decided that on Saturday we would do whatever he wanted and on Sunday we would do whatever I wanted. To my...

A QUICK FIX! NOT ADVISED, BUT FOR SOME A PLACE TO START.

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

Today we all live in super society. Everything is super sized or super fast. Likewise, I can’t tell you how many people have asked me to just start them on the needed vitamins to fix this or that. Well folks, it’s just not that easy. First of all everything in your body is interconnected. Second it is never as easy as a quick fix....

THE ACID BASE SEE-SAW

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

Does this sound familiar? “I’ve been trying to eat right and get more exercise. I do feel better and have lost some weight but I’d like to have more energy and lose even more.” Well, I think we’ve learned that the answer isn’t all that simple. There is a digestive system that needs to be looked at. Hormones too have to be...

ALL BACTERIA ARE NOT BAD

By: Clifford Sonnie, M.D.

One of the most important systems in our bodies is the gastrointestinal system. I think from one end to the other it is the most important. The gut breaks down everything we eat to a form that we can use throughout our bodies but it also is the pathway by which we get rid of what we don’t need. It is also the site of three quarters of all...

Little Things That Do A lot

By: Clifford M. Sonnie, M.D.

Have you ever noticed how the smallest thing in our lives could have the biggest impact on it? Well a good example of this is vitamin B12. It is one of those vitamins that we often don’t think about and in fact it is often ignored. Well that little thing may be responsible for an entire array of preventable age-related diseases.

“I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!” Then Don’t!!

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

Remember the commercial where the steroid enhanced German hunk with long flowing blond hair looked into the camera and said “I can’t believe it’s not butter.” Well, this has been the message that chemical companies have been pushing on us for some time. In fact I had an argument with a dietician who works at the “Mecca of...

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...

COLD OR FLU?

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

I was surprised to discover that many people do not know exactly what the difference is between a cold and the flu. So let me take a quick minute and tell you the differences. Now remember, nothing is written in granite. I also will not tell you my opinion of the seasonal or swine flu vaccine. (The dangerous, unproven, ineffective...

DON’T BLAME THE GENES

By: CLIFFORD SONNIE, M.D., M.P.H.

One of the mornings over the Thanksgiving holiday I was running in the park. It was a nice morning and usually on these mornings I get to see lots of other people running, biking, playing Frisbee and generally “blowing off stink” and exercising.

It struck me as interesting because even though medicine today generally...
