Doctor Reacts to Very Strange Addictions

In this video, Mikhail Varshavsky, DO — who goes by “Doctor Mike” on social media — reacts to unique addictions.

The following is a partial transcript of the video (note that errors are possible):

Trina: I am addicted to coffee enemas.

narrator: For the past two years, Trina hasn’t been able to function without her daily coffee enema, a procedure in which liquid is injected into the colon to clean out the lower intestine. Her addiction is so intense that she does it every day for up to 4.

Varshavsky: Let’s do it straight with the bat. Coffee enemas have not been proven to help with any medical condition. Like in the 60s and 70s, we probably used to call it constipation, but it has been removed from the medical literature. We have so many better ways to deal with constipation that it’s largely unnecessary. They are saying that coffee enemas are used to clean out your colon. no, they’re not. It is a self-cleaning part of the body.

mike: My initial reaction was, “Oh my god, this is disgusting.”

Varshavsky: Beautiful judicial response.

mike: I tried it and now I am addicted to coffee enemas.

Varshavsky: Oh.

narrator: Two years ago, Trina turned to this unorthodox ritual after a series of health issues.

TrinaI had a lot of stomach problems, digestion problems, kidney problems, liver problems. I started researching and it got me into coffee enemas. Immediately I started to really feel the benefits.

Varshavsky: understanding that someone has symptoms, who is struggling, looking for answers online, finding a treatment that makes sense to them, something they can do on their own, and trying We do. But that doesn’t mean it’s the right treatment or that it’s something most people should try.

My concern is that there is something else going on in these people’s bodies that could be missed and potentially worsen over time because they are not seeing a doctor. Kidney problems should be investigated because if kidney failure starts then it is your own life-threatening.

Julius: My name is Julius. I am 62 years old and I am addicted to balloons.

Varshavsky: I like balloons.

Julius: They are beautiful. They are soft, smooth and delicate. I have a connection with them.

Varshavsky: Would it be similar to what we’ve seen in previous episodes of objectophilia or animism, where you believe that some physical inanimate objects have a soul or spirit, or that you might become sexually attracted to them? I am keen.

narrator: Now Julius has filled his house with over 50,000 balloons.

Varshavsky: 50,000, that’s a lot of balloons.

narrator: He cannot sleep until he is surrounded by them,

Julius: My favorite is circular.

Varshavsky: Honestly, I still don’t see what’s wrong with that. He likes to decorate his house with balloons. Some people like to paint their walls. I don’t know They put up wallpaper. Some people put paper on the walls. to each their own.

narrator: But Julius’s obsession with balloons goes beyond shapes and colors.

Julius: My love for balloons is also a sexual love. When I see a beautiful balloon, my heart beats and I get excited. I’ll take 12 inches and I’ll increase it to 11 inches. That way it can take a lot of abuse.

Varshavsky: There is a possible link between objectophilia, animism and autism that one study sought to explore. I’m interested in exploring that topic, to see how connected those two conditions are.

Julius: My wife thinks it’s weird, but she accepts it.

Varshavsky: Then, like you have a job, you have a partner, you live a good life, you take care of your health, and you are sexually attracted to balloons. Not really a disorder. Disorders are based on the ability to perform life tasks, find life satisfaction, and reach goals in life. Let him sit in his room and blow up balloons and squeeze them. Like, why is he even talking about this show. It’s kind of weird.

carmelo: I am addicted to butt injections.

Varshavsky:I’m curious if it’s butt injection like bbl [Brazilian butt lift]Where they do liposuction and re-inject the fat.

narrator: Carmelo has had 54 butt injections, yet he never puts them in front of a plastic surgeon. She gets her shots on the black market, getting pumped up with an unregulated substance known to contain metallic lubricants and cement.

Varshavsky: Yes. I mean it’s really dangerous. There’s a lot that can go wrong here. This is not a traditional BBL. BBL are also dangerous. As 1 in 3,000 people have BBL, they have fatty embolism. The fat actually gets deposited in their blood vessels and can be fatal if it travels to the lungs.

I’ve actually had patients who have had big, big complications as a result of such poor injections. They were done abroad in other countries, but then he got a terrible cellulitis, abscess formed in the buttock area, eg, necrotic tissue, had to undergo major surgery to take out the dead tissue, so he lost a part. of his buttocks.

Dr. Yunu: What brings you today?

Varshavsky: Dr. Yoon, welcome back to the channel.

Dr. Yunu: Do you know what he injected you with? did he tell you?

carmelo: He said liquid silicone, but I’m not sure if it was really like that or not.

Dr. Yunu: Did he do anything afterwards? I mean, did he sew up the incisions?

carmelo: He applied superglue.

Varshavsky: Many times we use gum in medical settings in the ER, but not for deep wounds, not for large wounds, not for wounds that could potentially become seriously infected. As such, there is a time and place for all medical devices and this is not the place for superglue.

Dr. Yunu: You can see here that this is your thigh, you have fat in your thigh, which is smooth and normal. But up here it looks like spongy, this texture, and it’s definitely not normal. Even if you’re healthy, it really takes just one bad injection to kill you.

Varshavsky: Oh that’s good. I’m glad she decided not to do it again.

How: My name is Casey. I’m 26 years old. I’m from Fayetteville, Tennessee, and I’m addicted to carrying my husband’s urn.

narrator: Until Sean suffered a severe asthma attack two months ago, their marriage was perfect.

Varshavsky: Two months ago, this is recent. Why are they not letting this woman grieve in peace?

narrator: Her addiction has developed recently.

How: I think with the transfer of his dead bodies some also got into the cardboard box and they spread on my hands. I didn’t want to delete him – because he’s my husband, I don’t want to delete him – so I licked it with my fingers.

Varshavsky: According to infectious disease, it is her husband, so there is very little risk and the body is cremated, so all infectious diseases will also inevitably be wiped out.

How: It tastes like rotten eggs, sand and sandpaper, but I like the taste.

Varshavsky: I wonder if pica situation is happening here.

doctor: I’m a little concerned about what’s in the embalming fluid and I’m a little concerned about how many chemicals are in those ashes.

Varshavsky: Oh, I didn’t know it was like that. If embalming fluid was used, formaldehyde is the main component in the embalming fluid and is very lethal. I think an ounce of formaldehyde can be fatal to your lungs, throat and nervous system. As such, there are a lot of issues with this. Then there are other ingredients in embalming fluid, things like methanol, ethanol, which can cause blindness and brain damage. As such it is indeed a matter of serious concern.
