Cliff’s Notes

IT DOESN’T LOOK SWOLLEN

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

I subscribe to a lot of medical journals. I was catching up on my reading this past weekend and something struck me. In almost every article some practitioner is touting that such and such herb or vitamin or whatever helped a certain condition. Well what hit me is that when you read the whole article, all of them say the same thing....

Leptin: New Fat Hormone? Not so fast!

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

There is a new hormone that is slowly making its way into the newspapers and talk shows. It is not really new but its role is being slowly revealed. The problem is, as I have seen in the past, once something is even hinted at being the cause of or help for some health condition, too many people and practitioners jump prematurely onto...

MALE MENOPAUSE, THE TRUE EQUALIZER

By: Clifford Sonnie, M.D.

I was channel surfing this past weekend and I was amazed with the number of infomercials that were about woman’s hormones and menopause. Just look at any magazine and the ads are everywhere. I however did not see one ad about andropause aka “men’s menopause” (the singular is manopause, sorry bad joke). I was curious about this. Even...

MAGNESIUM, THE DECATHLETE OF MINERALS

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

A few weeks ago I wrote a piece on the importance of magnesium in osteoporosis and overall bone health. I promised to expand on this a bit so here goes. If you remember, I had mentioned that calcium is essentially an excitation mineral found mainly in the circulating blood and magnesium is a relaxation mineral found mainly inside the...

More Than A Stress Buster!!

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

Massotherapy, also known as massage therapy, is and has been recommended by me for a long time. For everything from athletic injuries to musculoskeletal and nerve issues, massage is an efficient and effective remedy. Well, that is what I have always mentioned to patients but didn’t realize exactly what was being done in the field....

Nutrients: What Do They Do and What are They In (Part II)

B: Clifford Sonnie, M.D.

Last week we started to list a number of vitamins needed in the body and where you find them in your diet. This week I am going to continue to list vitamins and several minerals. Remember this list is by no means complete and if a vitamin or mineral has been omitted or forgotten I in no way meant to trivialize it or insult it. Just didn’t...

NUTRIENTS: WHAT DO THEY DO AND WHAT ARE THEY IN? (PART 1)

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

I have said this before and it is plastered all over my clinic. The method by which I believe health is best attained is to detoxify the body first then replace what the body needs. Pretty simple concept. After detox, refill the tank. Here is where the nutritional supplements come in. It is a rescue, if you will and replenishes that...

Oh Nooooooooooo, I Can’t Feel My Lips!!

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

Anyone who has had the fortune or misfortune to have dinner at my house knows that I love spicy foods. The hotter the better. I guess I developed this from my mother. She always had spicy foods at dinner and I remember grandma saying that the spicier the food the better it is for you. Well, as I found out she was right.

OIL: THE LUBRICANT OF LIFE

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

Remember when the diet pyramid first came out. Oils (which are fat) were stuck near the top with instructions to use very sparingly if at all. Well nothing could be farther from the truth. Oils play a huge role in our health. Today we’ll talk about a couple types of oil.

First some science. I’ll try to make this painless....

OUT OF THE GARAGE AND INTO THE MEDICINE CABINET

BY: CLIFFORD M. SONNIE, M.D.

“All work and no play make’s Jack a dull boy.” Every so often I think it is good for the soul to read an article that doesn’t teach you anything and doesn’t make you so angry that you get a headache. Knowing this, I present a reprint of an article I found in my desk. It was written by a consumer advocate by the name of Mike Adams...
