I: I want to first advise you that I did not see the kong - tv report that you referred to. When relationships are harmful to your sense of wellness; they are some referred to as "toxic".
All relationships have ups and downs. However, if you find that you feel emotionally depleted or upset more often that you feel positive after interactions with someone, then that relationship might be toxic. Let's say you have a friendship in which the other person always wants you to do things for them and it is never reciprocated, that sounds unbalanced. Or perhaps you are in a relationship where the other person is consistently critical and unsupportive, that may be a toxic relationship. Some things are quite obviously toxic: when a person has a pattern of saying one thing to your face and other things behind your back is an example.
Over time, if a person continues to be involved in multiple toxic relationships or even one relationship that is toxic but very important in your life; it can adversely impact your emotional and physical wellness. The impact can be even greater if there is turmoil in other areas of your life.
If you aren't treated well- you may harbor feelings of sadness, anxiety, anger, fear. It may leave you confused, enraged or exhausted. Some conditions that can be impacted by our emotions include: asthma, migraine headaches, tension headaches, gastrointestinal upset such as irritable bowel syndrome. These are just a few.
The most concerning issue regarding toxic relationships is if there is abuse. If there is verbal, physical or sexual abuse that is not acceptable. If you are having trouble freeing yourself from an abusive relationship then you may need professional help.
Sometimes unhealthy relationships can adversely impact your physical health. It sounds like your physiologic reaction of having a stomach tied up in knots in a relationship that wasn't going well is a good example. The fact that you are feeling physically better since you ended that relationship is further proof. Good luck continuing to make healthy choices about the people you spend your time/ life with. ...Read more

I just bought Colin cleansing pills and on the bottle it says to take them right before bed. Would it be a big deal if I took them at a different time?

I just bought Colin cleansing pills and on the bottle it says to take them right before bed. Would it be a big deal if I took them at a different time?

I don't think: It matters when you take them as I feel they are a big waste of money. The colon is a one way disposable system and has no ability to store anything. It has no need of cleansing unless we are going to look inside for a study. ...Read more

How can I remove or even reduce cellulite from my butt, thighs I used to play kong fu but I stoped now I am not really fat 64kg, 162cm so what to do?

Reducing Cellulite: Reducing cellulite
for a procedure that would help reduce cellulite, there is a laser treatment called cellulaze that was recently approved by the fda last year. This procedure is proven to show better results after just one session. The outcome lasts one year or longer, but you may need follow-up sessions depending on the results.

Mom died of colin cancer I'm 48 do I have to get tested I've list 65 lbs in 2 yr w out trying but I never get sick not even a cold in 28 yr?

Get a physical exam: It is strange to be losing that much weight in such a short time without trying. It's not likely colon cancer, but you have a higher risk of developing this type of cancer than someone who has no family history. Regardless, you need to get your first colonoscopy at 50...Two more years. If your parent had colon cancer before 50, you might be due for one now. ...Read more

There is a red patch about an inch kong on my labia. I also discharge a lot and when I do there are clumps of white stuff in it. What could it be?

Yeast infection: This could be a yeast infection with the thick clumpy white discharge. I would try an over-the-counter yeast treatment vaginally and apply some cream to the red streak externally. If this doesn't clear up in 10 days or so i'd go to your primary care doc and have it checked! ...Read more

I am having back pain, pain in my left side that does move around and my butt area. Could this be colin or back related? Feels better when on stomach.

Muscles, joints, kidney stones, pelvic organs are all in your possible causes. Consider bending forward at hips with legs straight: pain maybe disc related.

What's the difference between "normal flora" e. coli and the dangerous kind? Or do we simply get sick from flora that isn't our own?

What's the difference between "normal flora" e. coli and the dangerous kind? Or do we simply get sick from flora that isn't our own?

Both can happen: The E. coli strains we all carry in our intestines usually are harmless and even benficial, but even these sometimes cause urinary tract and other infections, sometimes dangerous ones. However, the food borne types that orginate in other animals sometimes produce unique toxins not present in our own natural strains. These are the more dangerous ones that cause most serious food borne outbreaks. ...Read more
