MEDINA — Balance of Life Clinic professionals work to bring a body back into a healthy balance, according to Office Manager Terri Zura.

The clinic, which focuses on integrative medicine, is owned by Dr. Clifford Sonnie and is located at 3985 Medina Road, Suite 250.

According to his biography, Sonnie is a board-certified medical physician who has chosen to look at medicine from a different point of view. Instead of just treating a symptom or disease, Sonnie takes a proactive and preventive stance to health and looks at each part of the body to help patients attain optimum health. He stated he does not replace, but rather works in concert with traditional medicine.

“We look at the body as a whole, not just a symptom or a disease, where each system or part of the body is an integral piece of the entire being,” said Sonnie. “Here at the clinic, we work to rid the body of toxins from the environment that burden the body, slow healing and prematurely age us. We work to bring your body back into a healthy balance.”

Sonnie said this is accomplished through a variety of methods and is based on the individual needs of each patient. These methods could include nutritional IVs and supplementation, chelation, hyperbaric therapy, the King Institute Method therapy, Nambudripad’s allergy elimination techniques, the use of bio-identical hormones, blood microscopy and BioMeridian testing.

Sonnie works alongside Dr. Alphonzo Monzo, B.N.D. (biblical naturopathic doctor). Monzo, a native of Copley, focuses on energy medicine and offers therapies such as nutritional counseling, energetic testing, total body analysis, bio-electric stress testing, massage therapy, advanced homeopathics and biblical counseling.

Zura said most patients coming to the clinic begin with chelation therapy, which pulls heavy metals and plaque from the arteries via an IV. She said most people who have lived in Ohio have mercury, aluminum and other metals in their bodies, and IVs are the “most efficient way to get rid of the metals.”

“You can’t get better until you get rid of the things that make you sick,” said Zura. “We get to the root cause of a problem and help the body heal on its own through an improved immune system.”

Clinic hours are Mondays from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., Tuesdays from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Thursdays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
