Doctor Mike

Prieš 2 mėnesius

Last summer I reacted to some bizarre health posts I’d found on Facebook. I logged back in to see if I could fact-check any more posts that seemed to be spreading like wildfire. Well wouldn’t you know it didn’t take me long to find some dangerously misleading or downright ridiculous health “tips”. I had to fact check things like using onions to cure the cold, baking soda to remove grease from your hair, drinking cow’s urine to fight COVID-19, putting cabbage in your bra to battle mastitis, using toothpaste as a skin cream, and the proper way to hold your phone, drive, and wear your backpack to school.

I LOVE reading your comments and take your suggestions seriously. If there’s a subject you want me to discuss or something you’d like for me to react to, leave a comment down below. Many of my videos have been born out of suggestions directly from you, so don’t hold back!

Actually, for people who are ill or others, who can't take a bath or shower to wash their hair I believe baking soda works as a good hack. I think there are dry shampoos you could use also for this same reason.

To be fair, when you have dreadlocks you can't wash your hair very often (and regular shampoo will make them unravel), so baking soda or dry shampoo is better than nothing.

Cold cabbage in an ace bandage is what I was told to do in my hospital discharge, but it wasn't for an infection, it was to help with the pain of stopping milk production.

There is this practice in India, which is drinking small amounts of Cow Urine from time to time. STILL we only believe it gives good health overall. It's not specific. DOES NOT cure viruses or something else.

Actually in India we will use cow urines in pooja and they will mix it with some milk, gee AKA clarified butter and make a concoction and we will drink a teaspoon of it after pooja, in India they even sell cow urine in a preserved form in bottles.

Yeah, most of those Facebook posts are worded pretty dumb and promise way too much or are plain wrong. But some of them are based on ancient natural remedies that people in different parts of the world have used for centuries. (ex. onion or cabbage) I wish Doctor Mike would read up on natural remedies more and not write them off as bogus right away. Those things can be great additions to modern medicine.

Mike, a recently saw an another doctor talking about that reabsorsion of the gases from our intestine. He said the small intestine they are absorved by a concentration gradiant to our blood and when this blood pass in the lungs the passive transport ocurs again and the gases scapes in the breathe( like you're releasing farts throught mouth). But he said it only happens when there is A LOT of farts holded.

Oh c'mon now stop misquoting Indians and more specifically Hindus when someone tells you about their connection with cow's urine! Cow's urine has proven to contain some essential healing elements in it and almost half the medicines we consume today have some proportion of cow urine in it be it in any form. It's a fact that cow urine has some amazing things in it which sadly the younger generation like myself, aren't aware about. But that doesn't mean you'll find our parents or any random lad on the streets with their mouths pressing up against a cow's private parts to receive the holy water...NO. We don't roll that way here. Please stop relating this urine stuff with hindus and Indians all the time. Stop it for real. I assure you we don't drink that thing at all and the ones who do are probably lesser in number than the number of people eating each other up in your country. So let's just stop with this bs today.

This reminds me of when I was young, my mother would chop tomatoes, wrapped them in a towel, and wrap that towel that contains the tomatoes around my neck...she does this when I have a fever thinking it will make me feel better. Before, I really hated it because I hated how warm tomatoes start to smell and I thought, "this sounds stupid"....and now.... I hate it even more because of how dumb that it really is and it's EXTREMELY stupid. Those tomatoes never made me feel better in the past. P.S. my mom would still believe these fb posts... and I can't make her to stop believing those posts.

The cow is a sacred animal for Hindus in India... Everything from the cow, it's milk, dung and urine is considered very sacred. Cow's urine is considered to be very auspicious so it is even used in the house warming ceremony... That said it is very stupid to consume it... I agree with you Dr. Mike also cow is considered as the incarnation of God .. the dung is dried and is still used as fuel in stoves as it has a high calorie value.... But me being from India finds it very disgusting to consume urine... Urine is urine... 😂😂 And that man was trolled for giving such a statement as well....🤦😂

it has been proven, or at least.... scientifically stated that farts can get reabsorbed into the blood stream and in fact help cause bad breath. No idea if it's true, by why the hell bother holding in a fart anyway, just let em rip. who cares if people get offended. it's 2021. And! most or at least some shampoos,. actually clog the pores on your head.....

The colgate one reminds me that I've always hear that if you get burn in the kitchen (not a really bad burn), and don't have any lotion for it, you should put toothpaste to calm the pain. I don't know if it's true, but I know a lot of people who has done it. PS I think is a really common natural remedy in Spain

I agree that cabbage might not help unclog milk ducts. But in Norway, where I live, cabbage is a common go-to method. I myself, a grad student at the time, stuffed my bra with cabbage whenever the breasts were hard and swollen between feedings. Didn't help, but I was desperate. 😳

Goodness, Doctor Mike! Your tolerance for stupid posts has gone down a lot, perhaps the next time you do one of these, a cardiologist pal of yours could accompany you, so we get to see your EKG go B-A-N-A-N-A-S when you're confronted with cabbage-on-breast level of sillyness. Extremely entertaining, but I do fear for your cardiovascular health with all this stress...
