I’ve taken a look at disturbing health posts showing up everywhere from FIstream to TikTok, but today I decided to take a look at the source of a lot of the internet’s medical misinformation: Facebook. What I saw drove me up the wall. Quiet a baby by pressing pressure points? Heal muscle soreness by walking barefoot? The dangers of a red tongue?! Don’t believe everything you see in a Facebook video, and definitely don’t share it unless you can verify it’s TRUE!
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!

  • I wonder if the idea of dance improving memory is specific to the type of dance. My mother used to take several folk/line dance classes that have specific sequences. I remember watching an interview with Ingrid Schau Graham (a ballerina/ a lot more ) discussing a ballet program she was developing that was inspired by her mother having early onset Alzheimer’s. ..

  • Laying on grassy ground in medium sun is very relaxing. Eases stress throughout day thereby relaxing muscles and making it a little easier fall asleep a night. That having been said, grounding is not a replacement for legit medicine and like, doctors.

  • Doctor Mike, the one about the babies feet, yeah it's called Reflexology, and it works. It's goes back as far as Egyptian times! Be curious and look into it.

  • Ok - let me try: Beer, or wine, consumption relaxes you when your are stressed, therefore reducing immediate stress related severe medical issues.... for the win ( in the 1940s 🎉)!!!

  • The baby thing i would disagree with you against. I have put pressure in certain places and it has made other places feel better. Its like acupuncture without the needles. So this makes sense if a baby/toddler is teething.

    • It's still genetic (I think?) just not inherited genes. While it's true your genome comes from your parents there are other factors that can happen during copying of your DNA/RNA that can still change your genome regardless of if it was in your parent's genomes or not

  • The vaccines and autism bs always infuriates me. I'm autistic, 2 of my cousins are autistic, my mom and aunt are autistic, and my grandmother (who spent her first few years being forced to hide with her parents in the mountains in the Philippines during the Japanese occupation, and being forced to live on stuff like insects and far from any vaccines) has autism. It's genetic.

  • 1:38 doctor Mike it may seem awkward for u but but this is practiced in india and the form of this procedure is known as "varma" it's a method that is used like acupuncture that uses pressure points it's highly effective and it's not anfake I know that I'm not equal to you to say this but this method is an underated method which many people don't know But this method is been in india especially in tamilnadu (a state) for ages Kindly refer if u have any doubts 😇😇😇

  • Okay, I have a question about the sleeping position. I have spinal problems, but I've slept on my side for a very long time because I have Epilepsy. My ex fiance died from SUDEP in 2016, so I have a fear that I'm going to seize in my sleep now .. but if I lay flat on my stomach I could suffocate, and then if I lay on my back that's dangerous because I could aspirate. 🤔 I just don't know what I should do.

  • Dr. Mike, that baby and foot video was a foot to body part correlation. You have to know what’s bothering them first to know which part of the foot to stimulate. I’ve done this foot therapy for my neck and shoulder pain, and it actually worked! Apparently it’s from Chinese medicine?

I have chronic joint pain (no diagnosis yet) and sleeping with my arms like that actually helps my shoulders. Is this something important to mention to a doc the next time I see one?

  • Sweet potato chips, FTW my lord my respect went up 1000% after that. HELL YEAH MIKE, I've slept in all those positions because I have a damaged sciatic nerve and that middle position can feel amazing at first because my spine is inclined, after about 10mins though it's hard to move, I'll have a pinched nerve in my neck my back will be stiff aw a board so I'd say the fetal position or "the recovery position" is best in most situations, but they were saying the parts of a Babys foot correlates with body parts, so you touch toes it's the brain, you touch below the toe it triggers the chest, I can't believe someone would think that but our president said to inject bleach for Covid, so Hooray for 2020
