    This pill-in-gummibear hack is going to backfire so hard. I once was zoned out when I took one of medication for my migraine and chewed it instead of just swallowing and I almost threw up. It was so disgusting. They make those pills disgustingly bitter for a reason so kids no nom on them like skittles.

    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.

      I have used lemon essential oil on my own hair to remove the rubber bands (my hair is super fine and entangles easily). And it does nothing to the hair, and it works perfectly to remove the rubber bands.
      Clearly, Dr Mike never had to deal with entangled hair in those rubber bands… it’s a nightmare to get it off.
      However… Everything else in the video is absolutely bonkers, and Dr Mike is right on those… 😂

    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.

      @pinkdreamicecream 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

    • pinkdreamicecream
      pinkdreamicecream 7 ай бұрын

      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 😊

    I’ve got to defend parents on the removing rubber bands while your kid sleeps hack. Yes, sometimes moms wait till their kids are sleeping to deal with stuff. One time my son had gotten a bad sunburn on his nose (yes he should have re-applied sunblock during the day) but anyway, he would not let me put the aloe vera gel on it while he was awake. I waited until he was asleep.

      @Marcos Sintes yes, but Dr. Mike never said it didn't work, just that there are better ways to treat heartburn such as antacids or sleeping with your head raised.
      Sleeping with your head raised works for the same reason as sleeping on your left side, but it also works for people with hernias or situs inversus as well as other conditions that could deform the stomach or shift the position of the esophagus

      @Yeasstt that doesn't mean it doesn't work. Treating the symptoms is not bad. Sure you should go to the doctor if you have frequent stomach issues, but if you have them just occasionally after eating a whole cheese pizza this method works pretty well, much better than the alternative which is usually nothing. Antacids work well, too, but in my opinion the relief doesn't last long, so probably also not a full night.

    The sleeping on the left side thing...that's actually something one of my doctors recommended when I was a kid, along with the bed raising and the not eating too close to bedtime. 😅 If I sleep on my right side or flat on my back for too long, though, I'll wake up choking on reflux, and that's basically the end of any hope for a good night's sleep.

    • Yeasstt
      Yeasstt 2 ай бұрын +1

      It is helpful, but doesn't always work. There could be issues like sites inversus or a hernia which would place the esophagus farther to the left, meaning you'd have to sleep on your right side instead. Plus if you sleep on any sort of negative incline it won't work as well. Sleeping on an incline (head raised) will keep your gastric juices at the bottom of your stomach instead of the side, which serves the same purpose but is more consistent

    THe one with the mum & the kid on the swing. I almost hit a kid with my wheelchair because a mum was paying more attention to her phone instead of her kid. To avoid it ting the kid I had to crash my wheelchair abusing pain to myself & damage to my wheelchair. The mum fended her kids actions & refused to help me. Luckily a nice man was near by & came run ING to help me. After he told me what he saw & he had zero sympathy for the mum. Parents out there, parent your kids.

    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 literally had the same thought with the combing and anxiety. DO NOT ever create a new habit that might stress you out. I somehow created the OCD thing were I need to look if the oven is turned off and all lights are turned off for at least 7 times before I can leave the house.. and I even come back for second time to check the lights and the door again. This is absolutely NOT how to deal with anxiety.. it acutally produces only more unnecessary anxiety I never had before. 😅 Working on it, but it's honestly very hard to get rid of this behavior.
    Better way to deal with stressful situations like work meetings is to integrate a routine, create a healthy sleeping shedule and try to not use your phone in the evening, eat well, speak to a person you trust 100% or take a little walk right before the meeting. Find things you actually enjoy and integrate them into your day more often, learn to notice triggers and situations that let anxiety spike. Sport is also a good stress relief. That's what I learned for me, what works for me. I'm not a professional.

    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 KZclip 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.

    Okay so you're right about everything, except for one thing. I can't tell you the reason why it works, but pulling hair absolutely helps with tension headaches, migraines, sometimes sinus pressure headaches, and I found it to be helpful for two other kinds of headaches, as well. Plus sometimes seizure auras. Not always but a decent amount of the time. I'd love to know the scientific mechanism behind that, but it really does work. Also, if you go very gently, and you just pull a baby's earlobes diagonally downward (so gently that your fingers will slip off of the earlobes easily), You can help a baby with changing elevation pain, and this Is a trick I've used that has helped many a baby on an airplane. I learned it when I had a new baby.

      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.

      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.

      @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.

    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.

It wasnt particularly informative, however there were only 4 girls in my class, and two of them lit up like beetroot whenever anything bodily came up, so I feel that may have hindered the experience.
      It would be fascinating if there were to be videos on every state and their guidelines vs. what several schools actually teach.. to perhaps see the huge difference between each state, and also the consistency between guidance and the real thing.

    Actually, getting the kid to pick the bandaid can be a life hack. If you need your kid to do something, telling "you have to do this" might end up with fighting, but giving them two seemingly different options that eventually lead to the same desired outcome will make the child psychologically think they made the choice and they will feel appreciated and feel happier about it. Even if it's just to pick whether they want a "grownup" bandaid or a Batman bandaid.

      @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.

      I don't agree. he is judging a lot of actual real hacks which are used in many countries - like the rope on the swing and the stick on the toy car. they work and have been used for generations where I come from - to alleviate back pain.

    Hey Mike I have a question. As a person who normally uses a-tips to clean my ears I have heard and by your reaction I know I shouldn't do that but most of the things that are recommended to clean my ears are a liquid, you see I can't have any type of liquid in my ears because it causes a lot of pain in my ears after a few minutes to hours and the pain lasts more that a week. So I don't know how to properly clean my ears if that's the case, do you have any recommendations for me?

    The oil thing on hair bands can actually work depending on the kind of oil cuz some oils can eat through latex. which, for lack of a better example, is why you shouldn’t use oil based lube and latex condoms. (Of so I have been taught) lol

    Honestly during pregnancy the heartburn trick works. When I turn to the other side I burp & it definitely soothes my stomach A LOT more 😮‍💨💯

    The lemon oil works on the thin elastics because it's acidic, also rubbing alchohol works. I used to do it when they got stuck in my hair and I didn't want to cut it out.

    The way Sam questioned how to cope with anxiety shows that therapy isn't the first thing people think of when dealing with something like that. As a psychology mayor student it really stood out to me. Not saying Sam is ignorant or anything, just stating the importance of therapy in people's everyday life. Great work there Mike❤️

      @Wolfy Therapists are cheap, comparatively, running in the 50$/per 30 minute session range.
      but a licensed therapist cant write prescription, and thanks to certain sections of of the Affordable Care Act, mental health professionals are now required to be able to write prescriptions.
      Which means a Psychiatrist, or a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner.
      Which means someone with around 40k in student loan debt, who spends roughly the cost of a small apartments rent for their licenses and certifications and whatnot...

    Fun fact: you can clean your ears with q-tips you just have to be very very careful (it’s Bette to do it after having a shower/bath because the water loosens the wax.)
