Cliff’s Notes

Catch A Wave… or not!!

By: Clifford M. Sonnie M.D.

E.M. (Electromagnetic) Waves have been around for almost a century. Any electrical device will produce them. Even something as small as a nightlight bulb will produce them. For as many years as well, we have known that these EM waves can be harmful to our health. After all, when it comes right down to it, our bodies are all electrical....

Fats; Friend or Foe

By: Clifford M. Sonnie, M.D.

Two physicians who did not know each other, both came up with a radical idea. While trying to treat their patients for two completely different problems both discovered that an all meat diet was the answer. What? An all meat diet? You mean eating fats? Unfortunately back in those days all fats were considered bad. So immediately their...

These Are a Few of My Favorite Herbs…

By: Clifford M. Sonnie M.D.

I know you have all enjoyed reading over the many articles about my opinion of pills. I don’t like them. But many times, they are a necessary evil. I much prefer whole foods, vitamins and minerals, and herbal products instead of traditional synthetic products. I also prefer a well-balanced diet over any type of whole food supplement....


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

Stress is probably the number one reason for any aliment in the human condition. It is how we handle stress that will ultimately determine how healthy we remain or become. In my clinic, I try to detoxify the body and replenish it with the needed supplements, hopefully replacing those in time with diet. But ultimately, it all comes back...


By Clifford M. Sonnie, M.D.

Nothing in this world is caused by one thing and one thing only. Anything from A to Z and beyond has more than one reason for happening. Likewise, in medicine and heart disease there is always more than one cause. Remember last week where we discussed cholesterol and suggested that it was the whipping boy for heart disease? Well now let’s...

Toxic metals are toxic minerals. They are also called heavy metals. We are concerned with them because they can wriggle their way into our body and take the place of good minerals. How do we get them? Our environment. We breathe, drink, and eat and therefore we are exposed. Mercury is in the fish we eat. Lead was in the gas we used and the pencils...

Maybe Winnie the Pooh Was on to Something?

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

Without question, two of my favorite food toppings are honey and cinnamon. When I die, just smother me in that and throw me in the ground, because I will be a happy camper. I first remember my grandmother making all kinds of concoctions with honey and cinnamon. In fact, my brother and I used to eat that instead of all the candy...


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

I hear this time and again in my clinic so I thought I’d write a bit about the thyroid. It is an endocrine organ (it makes hormones) in your neck. It has two lobes located on each side of the lower part of the neck and a piece of tissue connecting the two together. It collects iodine and forms a thyroid hormone. I’ll get into the...


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

Ask anyone who has been to my clinic and they will tell you that I consider the GI tract and the Liver as the two most important organs in your body. If they don’t work, nothing works. Everyone at one time or another will be asked to do a liver cleanse. Now there are a bunch of them out there and I am sure “practitioners” will...

IBS Made Easy

By: Clifford M. Sonnie, M.D.

Today I’d like to talk about irritable bowel syndrome. I can’t tell you how many people have come into the office labeled with this condition. It is a very common condition in the United States. Statistics show 1 out of every 10 Americans has symptoms of IBS. In fact, it is the second highest cause of days lost from work after the...
