Cliff’s Notes

TOPPLING THE FOOD PYRAMID

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

Anyone who knows me knows I don’t like diets. Unfortunately, too many people do. They want to be told when to eat, what to eat, how much to eat, etc. Well, that means following a very rigid menu and to me that is very difficult to do. Regardless, I often wonder what all these diets are based upon. Unfortunately, it is our friend, the...

RELAX!

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

First of all, I want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and a very Happy New Year!! Spent mine at my brother’s mooching an excellent meal. Don’t worry, I always do the clean up. Anyways, the day after Christmas I was jogging through Reagan Park and as I usually do, I think about what has gone before me during the...

Some Herbal Advice…

By: Clifford M. Sonnie, M.D.

I was cleaning my desk this weekend and reading all kind of journals I never asked for but get anyway. They usually line the bottom of my gecko’s cage or I just throw them away. One journal however, called “Alternative Therapies”, is an excellent journal. It is a peer review journal, meaning that other MDs and DOs read them and say...

SPRING CLEANING: HAZARDOUS TO YOUR HEALTH?

By: Clifford Sonnie, M.D.

This past weekend was so beautiful. The sun was shining and the weather was dry. Unfortunately, it also presented an opportunity to start cleaning up the yard from a long winter. As I was raking up leaves and debris from my yard, my neighbors had also joined in the fun. One was spraying a weed killer. Another was spreading a fertilizer/ weed...

Sugar: No Longer a Term of Affection

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

I was watching TV a couple days ago and came across a commercial that I just could not believe. It was a man and a woman picnicking and the woman offers a delicious looking dessert to the man. He graciously declines saying that it has high fructose corn syrup which is bad for you. She then says that it can’t be bad, it is made from...

SWEETS FOR THE SWEET

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

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...

SWINE FLU. HEALTH CONCERN OR HYPE?

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.

TAKING CARE OF YOURSELF

By Clifford M. Sonnie, M.D.

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...

TO SOY OR NOT TO SOY, THAT IS THE QUESTION!

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

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...

TRICKS FOR GOOD HEALTH ARE TREATS FOR LIFE

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

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...
