Doctor Reacts To Absurd Facebook Health Posts Ep. 2
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!

    Honestly I have no problems with people believing in crystals and the kind of "witchy" stuff that gained popularity again, but please realize that these things work more on a mental level, for example boosting confidence and other things. Please do not use such things to heal or cure real injuries or illnesses. The same goes for natural medicine, chamomile tea helps soothing your throat if you have an infection there and it helps your body healing that new tongue piercing. However there are injuries and illnesses that can only be treated by going to a doctor and getting prescribed medication or getting an operation. Please always use common sense with these kind of treatments.

    Hey Dr.Mike if an okay medicine already exists for a terminal condition then is it a good idea to participate in a drug trial of a fairly better drug as there is a good chance you can be on the placebo

    I use to look for these types of ads because I wanted to have a laugh. They are very funny and people are actually so uneducated they believe them. Something is wrong with people. I went to school and learned science. I am a big nerd. I was a yoga therapist and nutritionist for fifteen years. Also, hot tea and honey can help asthma alongside using an inhaler. It can release the mucus. I use it every time I have an asthma attack. Steam can help too.

    When I saw the cabbage one, it reminded me of a food medical joke," An apple a day keeps the doctor away. If one is not enough, throw another one." (Disclaimer: only for joke purposes, please do not actually do that)

    Why are you so angry 😂😂 and yes it’s a normal practice for people to drink cow urine in India because cow is considered a holy animal. They actually sell cow urine in bottles for a lot of money so I’m sure the BJP politician will have tried it, not sure if it cured him of covid or not

    Did the cabbage thing before for helping my pain. The cold helps for only a couple seconds and after you smell boiled cabbage 🤣. The cold helps, not the cabbage. And be careful, baby doesnt like smell/taste of cabbage on your nipple.

    Dang it, you misquoted the ad about body cleansing with an onion slice. It didn't say that would "cleanse the body 100 percent"; it merely said it's "100% natural." DISINFORMATION ALERT!!!

    So, there was actually a case in my country (austria) where a guy had pain in his arm, so he injected his own sperm into his arms. After he got an infection he went to the hospital. The doctors actually looked if this method got recommended on the internet, but they didn‘t find anything. Peope nowadays are really creative if it comes to health.

    If they studied the cow pee thing I'm convinced none of the participants that drink cow pee will get covid, because c'mon who'd actually get within a 10 foot radius of someone who drinks cow pee?
