Can you tell me are cornflakes healthy for weight loss?
No Weight
Weight loss should not be the focus. You can loose weight with many diets. It is essential muscle loss which is dangerous - if you do not balance your diet - body will start breaking down essential muscle like intestines and heart muscle which can be dangerous. Diet should be balanced, add endurance building activities and detoxification for proper weight loss

Can endometriosis or adhesions grow on the muscles of your lower back? How does endo cause near constant lower left side back pain?
Yes Pain
Yes it could be possible. It could also be colitis - inflammation of colon which can cause similar pain. It would be difficult to diagnose without examining first. Try Butyric-cal-mag by Biotics take 2 capsules at night if you can wake up without pain it is colitis. If it is endometriosis will respond to Birth control pills

When my body temperature changes I sneeze. What is that all about? Also, sneezing is awfully painful on my throat and nose?
Vasovagal response Open-uri20140124-25603-1hca0af
Vagus nerve creates that feeling of sudden cold after sneezing similar to shock like feeling you get when you are frightened. This is due to increased pressure near neck area. That is also the reason for pain in throat and nose the increased pressure. To help use slight pressure under your nose just above the lips "philtral dimple" this will help to reduce excess pressure during sneezing
