I was pretty harsh in my critique of Five Minute Crafts when I took a look at their first-aid hack earlier this year, but since then they’ve put our some new videos with new hacks on how to keep your body in fighting shape. So today I figured I’d see if they’ve improved their medical accuracy or not. We talk about bee stings, bandaids, blisters in your heels, doctor’s visits, getting kids to take medicine, teaching children to wash their hands, headache cures, treatment for heartburn, sleep tips, cleaning your ears, back pain, anxiety, cleaning out your eyes, drinking water, cleaning your pores, and so much more. Which clips did I miss? Let me know down below!

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!

@Tonya Brookes That absolutely could be true. I personally never knew (I'm 57) anyone that had any issues from consuming dairy until later in life. I have one friend that became lactose intolerant in his 50s. It does make me wonder if something has been added or changed. It's hard to trust our food anymore. You never know what they are putting in food these days.

Hey Dr. Mike! I have dealt with chronic migraines my whole life, they started when I was 8 and I'm in my mid twenties now. I know the hair pulling for migraines seems counterintuitive, but it can help depending on the person! Light pulling can give a different sensation to focus on to distract from the migraine. When my medication doesn't work, having another sensory input to focus on is the only thing that can help combat the waves of pain. Definitely depends on the person, but it might help! 5 minute crafts was onto something, but it isn't nearly what they were describing.

@Thomas Rocke yeah there's no real evidence, but hundreds seemed to have had felt better so I took her as a last hail mary since nothing else would hardly touch them and it worked thankfully ❤️. Maybe more can somehow get relief through whatever means

@Tap2Kpop I'm glad your grandmother's experienced relief, however from what I've seen online there's no real evidence that a daith piercing helps with migraines. I think she may be experiencing a placebo effect but if it helps her that's better than getting regular migraines so it's not a bad thing. Just didn't want people unnecessarily getting a piercing that could get infected or hoping it would be the cure to their migraines. It's really more of an aesthetic choice than a medical one
Tap2Kpop 2 gün önce
My grandmother had dealt with migraines for over 50 years and I had heard good reviews about daith piercings. Many sufferers had described the relief they'd felt, so I thought it'd be worth a shot. I took her to get it pierced and she hasn't had one in three years. Completely migraine free ❤️. When something is continually pushing against the pressure point, it relieves pain 👍 You might have heard of this already, but just thought I'd share 😊

@AScarletLlama Absolutely fair. And it's more than a distraction too. We know very well how big of a role placebo and relaxation can play especially with chronic pain. So we're talking real effects here.
AScarletLlama 3 gün önce
@Marzipancutter You’re definitely right, that’s the whole point. For me when my medication doesn’t work, all you can do it try to distract yourself with things that are somewhat relaxing. Anything so you’re not hyper focused on the pain.

I have absolutely used the citrus essential oil trick on rubber hair bands! In super fine hair it can get incredibly tangled by the end of the day. There is enough acidity to break the rubber band and does nothing to the hair, an absolute game changer.

Just for those who didn't know, putting a bandaid on your neck could be an extremely bad idea as it can have to potential to peel or rip off the skin on your neck. Sometimes it could be worse than others, depending on what brand you use

If/when Dr. Mike ever has a daughter or a niece, he will learn very quickly that you NEVER use rubber bands on hair. It will knot the hair and they ARE impossible to get out without a lot of ripping, pulling and screaming.

Yeah. The girl is sleeping. It's not obvious to Dr Mike, but the trouble is that mom doesn't want to hurt her child or wake her up, both of which would happen if she tried to take then off her while she sleeps. My fix would actually be to leave them in and deal with it later.

The lemon essential oil would be extracted from the skin/peel of the lemon, not the juice, it's mostly going to be limonene that breaks down the rubber.

As a person who suffers from violent migraines, the pulling of the hair actually gives temporary relief. Grab it by the scalp and apply pressure. I learned that from my father who also suffers fr migraines , Apparently an old trick to use
Bethany Platt

A really good trick to help relieve migraines (as someone who suffered from them 6-8 times a month for years), if you put your feet in warm, almost hot water, and then put an ice pack on the back of your neck and then curl up with your legs to your chest, this helps immensely. Also, I would get nausea along with it, and a Dramamine worked wonders. Also peppermint essential oil in your diffuser helps with migraines too.
ElisabetK Aylar önce
Pressing up into the insides of your eyebrows with your fingertips along the brow bone also helps - I suspect it's because the skin tugs on the internal sinuses just a bit. Many migraine symptoms seem to be related to sensitivity or irritation of the trigeminal nerve which runs through there. Unfortunately it's a brief effect, like the hair pulling, but if you hurt like that you take anything you can get.
Lauren Aylar önce
@Matilda right, plus pharmaceutical medication should be avoided if possible. It is horrible for your liver and body and most pharmaceutical medications have horrible side effects many which include death. Whether rare or not, it's not good for your liver at all. Even OTC medication will mess up your liver. Everyone is so gung ho about getting prescribed medications without realizing they do damage to your body just like illegal drugs and alcohol. You want to avoid medications if possible, and any doctor not telling you that is not protecting your health. Of course medication is needed and helpful, but everyone just says, oh get medication for you doctor for this and that without trying remedies that are non invasive and may actually help.

Knowing how worked up Dr. Mike gets when he sees q-tips being put in ears, he'll probably freak out when I say I once stuck an allen key into my ear. Basically, I was wearing earplugs and when I went to pull the earplug out of my ear, it ripped in half leaving half of it stuck in my ear canal. My solution was to stick an allen key into my ear to fish the earplug out. Yes I did it carefully lmao

I would love to see some kind of collab between Dr. Mike and Ann Reardon of "How to Cook That" (probably virtual, as she lives in Australia), as she does a lot of videos debunking hacks, especially from content farm sites like 5-Minute Crafts. You could even make it more "fun" by having Ann try to figure out what exactly is wrong on the medical hacks, and Dr. Mike try to figure out what's wrong with the baking/cooking hacks. She recently had TRshow take down her video warning people about the dangers of fractal wood burning, while leaving up the actual fractal wood burning videos she was warning about, so she could use a boost in viewership that could come from such a collab.

The one with the band-aid hearts isn't so much about making the band-aid pretty, but about giving the child several _options_ to choose from, which makes them feel some control over the situation. It's a tried and true way of getting obstinate kids to cooperate. It works with clothes, food, chores, etc.

I recently started watching your videos. And this episode is what I saw. It seriously reminded me of my Brother in law's wife. He spent several years teaching in China. And he married a typical Chinese woman. She was vastly different from the Chinese students he taught at the university. The Chinese social structure keeps the vast majority of citizens shunned from common sense thinking and promoting independent thought by letting them thrive in wives tales and superstition. They will die believing things we can only shake our heads in disbelief over... Instead of following the most obvious doctor recommendations. Recently he retired and they both now live in the States. They stayed several weeks with us, and we got to experience this over and over first hand. She's a very good person, but stuck in the deep, mystical, and irrational dark ages. They can visit anytime, but we do hope living in a much more advanced society will free her of some of her self-limiting, and sometimes dangerous beliefs.

I have actually found some success in laying on my right side when having heart burn instead of left... I don't know if it is medically accurate that is just my experience. the belief is that because it elevates your heart more than sleepin on the left, not as much acid reflux makes its way to the heart. but that is a case of lessening the symptoms rather than curing the cause, even if it is true.

About the lemon essential oil one: citrus essential oils contain limonene which dissolves rubbers and grease pretty well (was used to clean engines and bikes a while back). That’s why it pops the rubber bands. If you want to witness it you can peel an orange close to an inflated balloon it will pop if any of the oil gets in contact with the rubber! It’s pretty toxic and corrosive in large quantities or if it’s pure enough, like most essential oils though.

So I'm pretty sure that olive and coconut oil don't fall into the category of citrus essential oils but they break rubber bands too, I put both of these oils in my hair from time to time in braids and I once secured them with rubber bands instead of hair ties and they wouldn't stop breaking until I realized it was the oil in my hair

Those swings are actually in Germany and are really cool. I even fit on one with my 2 older sisters and it was awesome. The swings are found in parks, but I’ve only found them once but that is also because I have not gone to many parks or places. 3 weeks of German learning camp/school. And 1 week of traveling around Germany. It’s pretty fun and I definitely recommend it. Back to the swing thing, I don’t know if it is anywhere else other than Germany, but it is in fact real.

Really enjoy the Videos you are making Doctor Mike. And i agree on most of your arguments. I personally are suffering from diaphragmatic hernia resulting into a chronical inflamed esophagus (sorry if google translate messed things up there). So sleeping is a huuuge problem as you can expect - and yes i do sleep with my head high up using 3-4 pillows. But the interesting part is - that it also depends on what side i sleep on - interestinglich enough even though i should be laying on my left - sleeping on my ride side helps me more - maybe there is more space on the right side since my gallbladder was removed - so my stomach can slide down or not i don't know. Due to covid my operation was postponed - now i am facing the issue with fear for the operation since i had too much time to inform me the whole procedure and knowing alot of the risks - any tips on how to overcome that now?

Yeeeeaaaahhh.. No. Using one of those things might make removing the stinger easier but so will a pair of tweezers (or better yet use a knife or card to scrape it out) and they are the last thing you should use for anything venomous because the suction will simply cause more veins to burst allowing for more venom to enter the blood stream.

@Sonic Cookie Once the venom has entered the bloodstream, it can’t be sucked out. It’s impossible to suck venom out once it’s been absorbed, so you’d basically need to do it immediately and even then it won’t do much.

As someone who has GERD and Gastroparesis and has spent many hours with my gastroenterologist finding ways to alleviate symptoms, I have to say that laying on the left side vs the right side does make a big difference if symptoms are flaring up.

@Giulio17 thanks for chiming in! There actually have been relevant studies done on left side vs right side sleeping and the alleviation of GER symptoms, including those related to pregnancy. The shape of the stomach and the relative position of the esophageal opening to the stomach actually prove a physical relationship to how (given anatomic normativity) this would work. The esophageal opening on the stomach is offset from the center. Offset to the right, by a significant amount actually. Because of this non-central entrance, the stomach is more prone to acid, food, and beverage leaks when lying on the right side versus the left side. Think tilting a beverage can to where the opening is down near your mouth. Pretty easy to get the liquid out in that position, yeah? Contrarily, sleeping on your left side brings the larger side of your stomach to the lower position and puts the esophageal opening towards the top. Like tilting that same beverage can so that the opening is up at your nose instead of by your mouth. Not so easy to get at it now, right? Not impossible, just not easy. It’s anatomically supported, as well as supported by proper medical studies (and of course anecdotal evidence). It’s not a cure, any more than eating a tums is a cure, but it certainly helps. Especially if you go to bed on a **mostly** empty stomach so there’s not so much splashing around and needing all that acid for digestion.

7:20 actually, that is a neat little effect. and also it doesn´t takes much to disintegrate natural rubber. even constant contact with water could do that. also natural rubber contains proteins and these can be disintegrate even by lemon essential oil. maybe even honey could do that. but putting honey into your daughters hair is kinda mean.

Hey Doctor Mike! Got any real tips to cope with anxiety and depression?

after Anne Reardon (from HowToCookThat) did heaps and heaps about how not only wrong but sometimes highly dangerous these videos are (despite the newest one being banned 🙄), I completely avoid them - and love everyone who keeps debunking and making fun of this, so hopefully they do less harm over time.

@WritingIsHard same! that would be awesome.

@westzed23 it's ridiculous honestly. Especially when they keep all the "how to" vids up

@leahisfab I heard that her video got back up. Apparently they didn't like her telling people that they could be killed.

i love how you pretend that when you are trying to convince someone youre a doctor you dont instantly pull out a cheap plastic microscope, I don't believe that for a second.

Dr Mike, I get the impression that you think it’s easy to see a doctor any time you have an issue. I called in June to see a gastroenterologist in a huge multi-location medical group, and the first available appointment for any of their doctors is Nov 14th. I live in a suburb of a major city and have excellent health insurance. Chances are high that a person is going to start trying questionable online remedies when they have to wait 5 months to see a doctor.

@Holly J Ditto except mine was a walking referral to see a therapist. Scheduled it in September, took until March to get in (while sitting on the cancellation list as well just in case). Even my primary doctor appointments have to be scheduled almost three weeks ahead of time.

@Brandon Kelley I have been seeing my family practice provider regularly and have had multiple series of blood tests as well as an ultrasound. She referred me to a gastroenterologist in her medical group. Even with her referral, 5 months was the earliest appointment available. I have been on a cancellation waiting list for a month already.

Because your talking about a specialist, he’s talking about a general medicine family doctor.

@Cinnamon I think you might have it backwards. Bigger cities make it harder to get in. Higher population = more people needing doctors. And there aren't usually a proportionally higher amount of doctors/specialists in those populated areas. I live in the suburbs 30-40 minutes away from the nearest city, and out here the longest anyone I've known has had to wait for a specialist appointment has been like 2 weeks.

Laying on your left side truly does help with heartburn, I couldn’t tell you why, but it has helped me for years, or you could just drink a glass of milk or take some pepto

You can get dark armpits when have an allergic reaction to deodorant. I should know from experience. No doctor trip required. Researched online and found a natural deodorant that was aluminum and baking soda free. Less than 2 weeks, skin healing and not so irritated.

Thank you SO much for calling out the hair combing hack. I have OCD and there are SO many "hacks" like that exist claiming to manage anxiety and what they are really doing is causing a lot of harm. I literally carried a lollystick around for two YEARS to repeatedly stab myself with because it "made me feel better" when actually is was just placating me and bruising my hand. Never manage anxiety with rituals of any sort, its more trouble than its worth especially if you have a condition like OCD.

@SazRob Don’t let them talk you into shock therapy. I had it when I was 23 and it destroyed my long term memory. I also have ataxia (where you struggle to remember certain words; Bruce Willis just retired recently bc he has it!

@Michael Palmer It does but for some not that well and not for long. Unfortunately OCD has a very high relapse percentage. I had CBT therapy for multiple weeks every year for 14 years. It did nothing. Mostly because PTSD was the thing that triggered the OCD in the first place but I wasn’t diagnosed with that until I was 29. Once I had therapy for that the ocd also got a little better with therapy but not by much. I want brain surgery but doctors says it’s too invasive and to keep trying therapy even thoug it and medication doesn’t help me at all.

@Michael Palmer I don't have OCDs but suffer from phobias, and exposure therapy is really great. As you say, it's VERY hard when you start, but it gets easier with time. What a relief it is when you manage to get back some control over your life! 😀

@Michael Palmer oh yeah, I know ERP works lol, Ive been through therapy and am self guiding my recovery now too! Its so unbelievably hard to do at first but it gets just that little bit easier every time. Im taking a little break atm as im trying to move cross country and have had several involuntary HARD exposures in the last month so ive had to dial it back but ive already made plans for when i finally move! (Going to celebrate by doing a massive exposure -going to the pub i need to pass at LEAST 1 of 2 graveyards to get to- so my house will have been exposed from the get go in hopes i dont end up paralysed by fear of it becoming contaminated. I will still probably shower afterwards but will be resisting as many rituals as possible!)

I have this issue with minty lozenges. I've suffered from nausea for a good 10 years and was told that mint would work, and nowadays I get anxious af if I don't have minty lozenges with me somewhere. Does the mint actually help? Who tf knows because now I have anxiety induced nausea too haha. It's stupid and I would recommend no one to do this to themselves tbh.
