@Trose excepy it literally is, so.....
can't forget patience and understanding
I knew a girl who'd eat raw garlic in the morning and I once asked her, "you know you can chop that up and throw it in an omelet right?" She was flabbergasted.

"We don't fix patients they fix themselves" most honest thing I ever heard out of a medical professionals mouth.

When we sleep, our body heals us. Medical professionals help, but our bodies are miraculous during sleep. So if they give us help then keep us up all night, we don't get better! Found that out when I was in the hospital for brain swelling. Over a week of meds and no improvement because I wasn't allowed to sleep. After I made a scene about it and got to sleep, I started improving quickly!

@bobtheduck It is true at least to some extend in pretty much everything
I'm an EFL teacher, and that's kind of true of language teachers, too. The students that will learn the language the best are the ones that speak it with their friends, watch TV and movies in that language, and regularly use it outside of class. I seriously doubt if there's a single person on Earth who learned a language exclusively through what was taught in the classroom.
@PhantomFilmAustralia Yeah, they force them to.
Doctors are the rythm correctors to our blood circulation. The heart does the work well, and cuz the heart might have issues, the rythm corrector shocks it back into correct beat when abnormal.

Hey Doc! I've used that neck massager thing. Found it for cheap on ALI Express. Full disclosure: no your skin does not get caught in it. The gray wheel parts are actually kinda squishy so it doesn't pinch the skin. It does give a pretty nice massage, unfortunately it has a fatal flaw...the hairs at the nape of your neck can get caught in the wheels if you have longer hair, like me. So yeah, it's not gonna work for me.🤦♀️

Its less about remembering names, its more about understanding the root words of those names. You can guess many medical terms if you just happen to have learned a few and the prefixes, suffixes, etc.

I mean after 4-10 years of learning I’d know so much
"We don't fix patients. Patients fix themselves" This is why I like Dr. Mike
@Alexander Stoychev We definitely shake hands, regardless of everything else. Why wouldn't we? You did nothing wrong to me, I didn't do anything wrong to you, I say in the world we live in that's a reason for hugging not only for shaking hands 🤣
@Dan dan So we shake hands? :D
@Alexander Stoychev I've always thought that to die is actually a voluntary act. I've seen this quite a few times. Of course, it might be that the person who is about to die would cling to life up to a moment when he/she can't no more and them will "let go" and by doing so it will probably seem to voluntarily die when in fact to die might very well be to no be able to live no more. Anyway, probably healing is something starting somewhere deep inside a human being. I recall having Appendicitis. Swollen, barely being able top walk, took my things in a bag, got ready to go to a hospital for a surgery, was scarred of the surgery, went to sleep, in the morning Appendicitis gone. Wanted so bad to get rid of it I guess it did happen. At first, doctor said i need to get intensive treatment because he thought that the appendix broke inside of me and I will most probably die without treatment. After that he thought that maybe it wasn't Appendicitis but the way things were it was nothing else but Appendicitis. One more thing... had huge pains in my chest 3-4 times a day. Doctor said I need to have heart surgery which I was very much afraid of. Within a week time after my visit to the doctor, I went to a small party where I drank a strong coffee to be able to stay awake all night. Next day I went to sleep. Woke up and went back to continue the party. Drank a strong coffee again. Went to sleep in the morning and since that day I drink strong coffee every day. I guess somehow I started to believe that having coffee does good to me. It's more than 30 years already passed since then and I'm living my life free of chest pains. Most definitely that heart surgery didn't perform by itself but somehow, the trouble is already solved. Nature has its ways and if a doctor believes the only way to treat something is his/her way, they are wrong. Maybe this is happening because God simply love people but it is definitely happening.
@Dan dan Yes, I meant to say that you can use anything instead of homeopathy. On top of that, the patient himself is the most important factor. If the patient doesn't trust the doctor, the treatment may be less efficient, compared to the same treatment, but prescribed by a different, more "trustworthy" doctor. On the other hand, patients that have lost all will to live (usually old people) just get worse and worse and modern medicine can do little about it. The will do live, to achieve something - lose weight, recover after a physical/phycological trauma, improve immune system, etcetera...
@Dan dan For flu I'd recommend Jägermeister. The potato is just for the memes.
Mike's fashion aesthetic getting progressively darker and darker from when he was wearing just plain, light blue scrubs to now in all black has me thinking the misinformed internet is forcing him to start his villain origin story.
@Lena Okubajo Every outburst he has, I hold my breath a little and wait for the villain to emerge. 💀
I love this comment!!! Best one so far!!! He really is on the verge🤪
As a person who suffered from huge polyps since basically 6 years old, and only figured it out at 21, and suffer from allergies daily, AND insomnia. I appreciate you so much for debunking so many health frauds on TikTok, only If I could meet you sooner in life maybe I could take care of myself better since my parents couldn't. ♥
I love how he speaks legit facts instead of saying inaccurate information. I like how he’s not like these other “doctors” on social media that are saying random, incorrect things and how he calls them out for it.
She had a scleral contact. The small item is a suction cup. But you don't remove the contact in the center of the eye You remove it at 2 or 5 oclock to avoid that situation and avoid warping the contact lens. Yes, I wear scleral contacts.
I've been stimming with my ears since I was an infant and I can confidently confirm that it did not in fact keep me from getting cystic acne as a teen or breakouts as an adult. Drink water, use dermatologist recommended face products for regular cleansing and eat less sugar heavy and greasy foods. Guarantee that'll improve your skin 💯. Also, not wearing makeup everyday.
Jesus loves you. Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation. 1 Peter 3:3-4 ✝🌅
I LOVE how passionate Mike is about medicine, science and facts. We need more doctors like this.
@𝓐𝓷𝓸𝓽𝓱𝓮𝓻 𝓐𝓛𝓓𝓒 they could’ve easily done a PCR test before and he’s vaccinated. I’m not saying that it was ok, just saying it wasn’t as bad as people think.
and people too, we need more people like this
yes! he gets so annoyed and it's hilarious. I love when he debunks
I had dangue fever and i was in the ICU and there were so many beeps and alarm tones just going off I had low platelet and gum bleed and as soon as I finally slept i choked on a small amount of blood and the doctors came rushing pulled the curtains and looked at the moniter and they were asking me questions and if i was awake Scariest night of my life
I can never stop watching Dr. Mike. He's got good Information as well as funny videos, plus watch his neck. I sware the guys blood pressure goes through the roof when he does these
I once saw a blister happen because of too tight bandages after a surgery. My aunt was able to tell me something was painful and felt 'not right' compared to the pain of staples and sutures. We don't know whether the blister appeared from rubbing or pinching but it became increasingly painful because it was attempting to swell in an already too tight space. It probably worsened because we had to wait until the surgeon came back after the weekend. No one would take responsibility for unwrapping her arm. The moment they took out the bandages, it became very large like this. It turned out fine, but it was an unnecessary and painful experience.
I absolutely love watching your videos, Dr. Mike. Especially the ones with your nephews. Keep up the great work! Cheers! 😉
Honestly, I'm just pleasantly surprised that Daniel Thrasher's short ended up as one of the videos Dr Mike reviewed here 😂 Daniel's content is made for laughs, and it's very witty; I often end up learning a thing or two after watching his comedy sketches. Same for Dr Mike!
I’m so glad that dr. Mike does what he does. I have learned so many things that I may never necessarily NEED to know but watching his videos are so addicting to watch.
Dr. Mike, thank you for shedding light on the crazy quackery that is unfortunately everywhere. When I was diagnosed with Non Hodgkin's Lymphoma my neighbor tried very hard to talk me out of doing chemotherapy and try some weird concoction using apricot seeds. She was adamant that I was likely going to die if I went with conventional western medicine. I didn't listen to her and I'm happy to say 13 years later I'm here cancer free.
4:35 I know for a fact my brain ain’t healthy just flexible
Congrats I hope it wasn't a hard time during your cancer stage in life!!! 🎉
I appreciate finding your channel! I’ve been more educated by you then anything else I’ve seen. Also you explained in this video why I get sore throats and colds often XD I sleep with my mouth open a lot when I fall asleep, but I do usually wake up breathing through my nose
Mike you truly are a gift to us! Thank you for spreading correct information!
I love how passionate Mike gets lol but he's RIGHT there's so much bullshit going around... his patience is 10/10 for dealing with all this
It's people like this that make me want to be a doctor since like second grade. love your videos so much, as they are both entertaining and informative at the same time.
Your reactions to this video made me cry tears of mirth. This is exactly how I feel at the animal hospital when someone's "breeder" tells them something wild like they can clean their puppy's ears with Listerine...🤷🤦
5:35 I love how she included DEPRESSION as a PARASITE or a symptom thereof. Thank you tiktok lady, I had no idea 80% of people have depression caused by parasites. Turns out, I've probably been taking the wrong medication, and taking therapy for no reason since the problem is that I have parasites.
@Kam Corder a fetus is not a parasite
I wonder what the actual percent is?
Central Intelligence Agency
@BYUtiful Wouldn't be so sure about that. Whenever I come down with a cold or flu, before I get any kind of URI symptoms, my mood just drops like a DC-10.. I read some research recently that cytokines may cause or trigger depressive symptoms. So, a long term infection with parasites, even subclinical, should be able to make you feel down if it causes mild inflammation.
@Krizzly Bear of course! I should’ve known!
I love watching how aggravated you get with some of these people & claims. I feel the same way about MANY things I experience and seeing that you also feel the same makes me feel better.
The blister thing has happened to me before on the knee. I fell down and got a scratch on the knee (I was 7) and did not realize that the gardener had put pesticides on the plants like an hour before. Some kind of reaction with the pesticide (I did not wash my knee after the injury) and I had a massive blister like that.
You made my day. I had a really good giggle 😅 at your reactions 🤣
I’m a nurse and I walked into a patients room and they were taping their mouth shut. I looked at them so confused, and they simply said “oh, hi. I’m just taping my mouth shut” so nonchalantly 😂 it was an odd thing to see!
I love how passionate Dr. Mike gets about his patients with insomnia. As someone with awful insomnia, it's so nice to hear a doctor say that it's not something you can just fix with a life hack or two
@Ms A NOT a doctor, but ever get your neurotransmitters analyzed or gone for vitamin/mineral deficiency testing? It can be helpful although is not a substitute for medical treatment by your provider.

My anxiety kept me awake almost all night from Sunday to Monday 3 or 4 am in the morning. Knowing that I had 2 classes the next day and in almost 4 hours apart. Napping on a table isn't comfortable at all. Not sure if this is insomnia, but I don't sleep from my anxiety. I rarely get 8 hours per night and I usually get arou d 4 or t hours. Sometimes 6 or 7 if I'm lucky. And 9 hours if I'm extra tired and I need to get some sleep back.

@drkaran and you have done great job explaining medical information as best as you can for non medical people. They can still misunderstand or dislike you and twist what you are saying. I would love to see you two doing a podcast together. In regards to TikTok. For your sanity get off of it .
Thanks Dr.Mike my family always wants to be healthy so watching your videos are really helpful.
I love how much you love your work! Your enthusiasm is contagious. Also, did you ever figure out what was happening with the eye and the thing that looked like a nerd dart?
My dad could not breathe through his nose for a prolonged period of time. Luckily, his friend is an ENT and had him come in for an exam. He had a cancerous tumor that was blocking his nasal passage. Luckily he listened to doctors instead of TikTokers and got it checked out.

My sister was in a recovery place after a hospital stay for Pnumoenia. The bed they had her in would alarm every time she got up even for just a second. Normally it was to use the stool that was beside her bed cause it was better then sitting in wet sheets waiting for a nurse to come help you. She said the alram was so loud she thought she was going to lose her hearing. Well if got to point that the doctor said they didn't need the alarm to tell them she was out of bed any more as she seemed to make it to the stool by herself and back to her bed just fine. it was even written on her chart. Two days later the alarm is still on. Finally she said "Nurse it says ON MY CHART that alarm can go bye bye" they finally looked at it and went "oh so it does sorry" It was like the one nurse told me five times the matter if 2 seconds if i needed anything to just press my button or wave to her. 5 minutes later I need her and shes not there. If your not going to stay at the station your supposed to then don't tell me to just wave at you if i need you.
A ton of respect to this man, seriously 🥺
The mouth tape thing - also like to add that sometimes people sleep in a position that can cause them to not be able to breathe through their nose and therefore their body responds automatically by opening their mouth for air. It has happened to me, I slept on my stomach when I was little and ended up with my mouth open through the night which caused minor issue when I woke up and so my mum finally got me to sleep on my back so that I would stop limiting/blocking my nose. Sometimes I had that issue when I slept weirdly on my side blocking one side of my nose lol. I basically was sleep on my face it sounds like🤣But yeah, point is, that tape on your mouth, I can imagine it being a problem if you are limiting or blocking your nose and you can't open your mouth...I mean you'll be woken up...and if you don't for whatever reason and your mouth can't open...wouldn't it be dangerous? Or is the tape not that tight? IDK just seems strange solution to the problem, not practical...
I lobs your passion And your triggered moments give Me so Much Happy Not because you're in a discomfort And frustrated. I love that it shows how passionate And real You Are Not Just as a doctor but a Human Being tfs This was interesting and educational 😘
As someone with insomnia, I really appreciate you talking about how harmful "best sleep you've ever had" hacks are.

I was diagnosed with guttate psoriasis a few days ago, we’re hoping it was caused from strep so it has a higher likelihood of going away; which honestly (for lack of better words) is quite underrated! Strep is pretty crazy tbh
Seeing doctor Mike getting frustrated slowly but surely is great 😂 I'm always looking forward to jt in videos that involve supplements but the empathy for people is good. I like that there's no judgment but a genuine curiosity of how things or people work. Like, using common sense to inquire why does that do that 🤷 something along those lines ❤️ I don't genuinely get excited for seeing doctor upset, but that he gets upset that people are tricked or feel x way
The tape-over-mouth one scares me as someone whose partner struggles to breathe in their sleep (I've told them what I've noticed and to see a doctor and it's on their to-do list). I've watched them sleep with their mouth closed, breathe in through their nose, fail to be able to exhale properly through the nose and then the air pops out of their mouth instead. They also snore and audibly struggle to breathe at times - it's often a team effort between nose and mouth. The idea of them obstructing their mouth in an attempt to force their body to breathe through their nose so that they can "have the best sleep ever" is terrifying because I can guarantee it would NOT improve their sleep AT ALL, and I'd be worried that they'd suffocate because they CAN'T breathe through their nose properly in their sleep.
4:38 This man is a legend. Rather than whining about his fall, he was just super glad he had a helmet haha. That was a super hard fall too, that helmet did a lot of work.
You know he's a good, reliable doctor by how stressed he gets about silly things. That's passion.
I think you should try making a series where you give us some basic health advice like how to treat a small wound or a common cold.
Absolutely love your videos, Dr. Mike. Thank you
I have seen that Mouth Taping video and as a common person with 0 medical knowledge I was convinced, so I have tried that a week ago and I never slept for the rest of the night because it felt uncomfortable overall. Glad to have these kinds of youtube videos of Dr. Mike and other doctors bcos it actually helps common folks like me
I breath through the mouth ever since i was little, and i have great immune system. So thanks docter mike for making these videos.😄
My primary care doctor suggested daily antihistamines to help my dark circles (living with a dog I'm allergic to) and it's really helped my dark circles to take them daily. But then COVID come in and undid all that good work 🙃
My grandma used supplements for *everything* to the point of causing her BP to spike resulting in a ton of ER visits and the mini strokes that eventually killed her 15yrs into her health kick. Before her death she was a dementia patient with a lot of physical problems to go with it all because she mixed 5 paper grocery bags of supplement bottles with her 6 medications. Yes, I said 5 grocery bags of supplements and no, I'm not exaggerating.
I’m so sorry 💔😞🥺
@Hazukichan X Between her prescriptions and that the dose makes the poison it was an absolute cluster.
@Ashurean Not so fun fact: At a certain age Drs don't look for anything else. She was going to either die of high BP or eventually zap her brain by playing with her supplement and that's where they stopped looking. It was hard to get her treated for a sore throat at a certain point.

The fact that one lady said that the stomach is in your cheeks.. goes to show how truly important it is to take your kids to school
Thanks bro. I am talking to mostly parents of friends about homeopathy and similar bs. I am glad someone with your reach attacks quackery openly and doesn't sugarcoat it.
I agree with the thing about trust and if a doctor tells someone something that does not happen it ruins that. I am just going to say that I had a doctor that told me I will be back to a completely normal person (run, bike, climb, soccer, roller blade)after a month of PT(for an orthopedic injury). I was so excited because I had been dealing with it for over a year. Then it did not help at all and the new doctor we saw for my follow up said “yeah I’m sorry she is a student she moved to another clinic because she rotates” and he told me my injury takes at LEAST 2-3 months to get better and even still it might not work. So trust is very important because even before my follow up I knew it was not better so I was really mad and frustrated at her too. I was so glad I got a new doc tho even though we knew that I would have a new one when we first had her because she told us she is moving to another clinic! Also I am a huge fan dr.mike!! My dream is to be in the medical field so you are a huge inspiration and influence, keep up the good work!
Found Dr. Mike through Molly Burke and SO glad I did! As an RN it was incredibly satisfying to hear someone else yelling at these crazy claims! LOL! Thank you Dr. Mike for fighting misinformation and quackery!
It’s so funny you covered the potato under the sock thing because that is such a common thing that happened in my small home town 😅 the only difference is we used onions instead. I refuse to get back on Facebook but if I did I can promise you some of the girls I went to school with are doing this to their children right now! It’s an old wives tale like doing the spinning necklace thing to figure out if you’re having a boy or a girl lol. I have to admit I tried it out once (I admit I was very gullible) and I knew the second I looked at the onion it only looked like that due to the air and possibly the heat that came from my feet 😅 aside from it not working the smell wasn’t pleasant either lol The only tale I’ve tried that I felt actually worked was drinking a Pepsi for nausea when I was pregnant. This was the only thing I could keep down when I struggled with morning sickness and I have no idea why. Maybe you or someone in the comments could explain why this helps but it’s actually a common suggestion down south (at least where I’m from lol).
The explanation for the potato one also applies to those footpads that "remove" stuff through the feet and turn a color through oxidation.
As an asthmatic the advice to tape my mouth shut while I sleep almost qualifies as attempted murder 😂
My advice to her would be to scrape off all that makeup every night before sleep. 😛
As an asthmatic with a lot of congestion, yeah also
As someone with severe allergies, agreed
@bosh ikrrrrrrr, i also have really weak lungs and i literally cannot breathe if i lay down like if you tape my mouth, i will actually die
I love these videos. I was wondering if you can do a video about a strange case where a woman has voiced in her head telling her to get a brain scan because she had a tumour. It turned out the voices in her head was right she did have a tumour. Can you do a video on that explains possible reasons for the voices in her head?

Totally on board with the whole quiet hours idea.... that's why the nurses took off my monitoring equipment when I was admitted for hypoxia.
My Husbands skin around his eyes is extremly dark. always has been. People keep asking him if he's had enough sleep on a daily basis. My mum even asked me if he was taking drugs. But nope. He just suffers from a lot of skin conditions and has very thin and sensitive skin. Especially around his eyes. Dr Mike is always right, dark circles around the eyes can have many reasons.
I love how his passive aggressiveness is slowly changing into real aggressiveness 😂 here for it!

When the world keeps getting more and more insane around you, the rational response is to flip your fricking wig.
My first (and worst) concussion happened during indoor soccer season when I was 16. I took a soccer ball to the face at close range, immediately fell, my head bounced on the turf ground, and I passed out. I ended up missing 10 days of school &struggled with learning the entire time. I’m 23 yo now and still struggle some.
I'm sorry to hear. Concussions are one of the worst kind of injuries when it comes to impacting someone's life. People don't protect their head enough and don't realize how fragile our head is. It's an unfortunate accident in your case, i hope it'll keep getting better.
hahaha the reaction is priceless and thanks for the education pieces that you are giving us.

I'm in a preparatory year of Med university , like I'm in the very first step of becoming a doctor i have 12 years max infront of me to officially be a doctor and the fact that i already know all these stuff is really making me happy and motivated like i know it's kinda basics but not all people know it tho Im glad
Something I'd like to ask Dr Mike: I've never had great luck with vitamins. Or antidepressants. Or medicine for ADD. (That last one had troubling side effects in my case.) BUT - fortified bran cereal works wonders. I eat 1.5-2 cups a day. Have seen significant reduction in brain fog and cold terrors. It could be the placebo effect, since I've always liked bran cereal. (Don't judge- the best cereal bowls lived at Grandma's house.) It could also be that I have trouble metabolizing folic acid. (A discovery from genetic testing for medication sensitivity.) But folic acid supplements don't work - only the cereal works. Strange? 🤷♀️
So sophisticated, so beautiful, I couldn’t expect in a million years for a video like this. It’s amazing
I just love how this guy is not afraid to admit that hes not perfect and even if he makes mistakes, he doesnt cry over it or try to hide it, he embraces his imperfection and learns from them, and thats what i love!

Probably had spasm or tightness in your neck and it reduces after the roller massages the area, thus make it feel smaller and you feel less aching
I come here for the passion Mike has for information
Great vid. Good points and good insight. There’s just one thing I don’t understand. There are literally medically published articles on the effects of raw garlic. I did a presentation on that for one of my biology classes during my two-year degree in community college. My class was given two random topics to do presentation and reports about separately. My topics were garlic and whales. We needed reliable sources to do our reports and presentations. I don’t understand how taking raw garlic for medicinal purposes is medically in-accurate. The Allison in that food is powerful, and has been studied by medical establishments.
I've suffered a lifetime of insomnia that occasionally keeps me up for days on end and as of late it's gotten so bad it's scary, so I really appreciate him talking about these awful promises to magically cure genuine disabilities like mine. It really hurts when people tell me something will make me sleep 'cause for just a fraction of a second I get a little wisp of hope that maybe it really could help me, but it won't, and I know it won't, so then I just have to remind myself that there really isn't a guaranteed cure for one of my hardest and most painful struggles.
Thank You for sharing.... may I ask what things you have tried that haven't worked....? Thanks 💚💚
I totally empathize with you. I suffer of chronicle insomnia: with sleep meds I wake up after 3 hours, without meds no sleep for days. No way that some "natural" remedies help me 😭
I suffered this so badly I tried everything ..finally I tried even though I didn't want to at all ,I began under duress,mindfullness breathing and I finally was able to fall asleep naturally after 25 years!! I did it consistently for a week before any real results ,I use the walking breathing which is simply ,,focus on your breath as it goes in and focus on it as it goes out ,,you can say " as I breath in I know I,m breathing In...As I breath out, I know Im breathing out ,when you get bored just count one two three four in and the same out . I walk and do it ,Its been a huge game changer and I was very seriously a bad insomniac ,it might work for you and I hope so as its a shocking condition to try and live with
@Fruity McFruitcake while I won't say it'll help you sleep, maybe it could help you rest. Not sleep but just relax? I like to lay in bed, light a candle (although that's not something you want to sleep while it burns) but even like a wallflower thing that you enjoy the smell of. Listen to some music you like if there is any calming music. Doesn't have to have words and if it has no words, it's easier to just follow along with the notes. Not thinking just listening. Don't think about anything but what you're direct senses pick up with your eyes shut. The smells of the candle. The touch and feel of your head against your pillow. The weight of the blankets laying on you. The feel of the sheets on your finger tips. The senses that get dulled out because of our sight being our primary input out and about during the day. Like I said. I won't say it'll help you sleep. I have found it to be enjoyable and relaxing though when I can't sleep. It still allows my mind to just stop thinking about stupid thoughts for a little while. I get rest. Not sleep but still mental rest and allows my muscles and body to relax. I don't feel so run down and frustrated after. Living and feeling in the moment of things that are physically there. Simplicity at its finest. I wish the best for you. I'm sorry you have chronic insomnia. It's miserable to put it lightly. I know it's not the same but my sleep has always been broken since I was born. I only remember occasionally sleeping for a long time without waking up every few hours or so. I hope this can at least be an enjoyable time for you when you're having trouble sleeping.
I feel you, my insomnia isn't as bad as yours though it's slowly getting worse but I can't remember the last time I got more than a maximum of 5 hours of sleep without the use of heavy medication or waking up randomly several times a night. I don't even use my meds too often so I don't wind up with a drug problem which makes it even worse that I've tried all the other lesser medications to help and they end up barely working often times.
I love how he makes everyone look so stupid when they’re not correct
Hey dr mike, love your vids! My dad who has chronic headaches and Lower pack pain was suggested a similar device to that neck massager, it doesn’t have rollers and is more so for just putting pressure- thoughts?
The tap over the mouth tip was crazy triggering leading to a full panic attack... I'm so glad Dr Mike is helping
Mike almost has an aggression meter. Depending on how angry he is, the vein on his neck gets bigger.
And for mouth breathers, xylimelts are amazing! They stick to the inside of your mouth and last for hours. I use them at night and during the day in winter when everything is dry.
I think you should take a blood pressure reading before and after because Dr Mike gets so wound up 😂
had to laugh so hard at his reaction to the puffy eyes 😂
I'm glad he clarified that if you have insomnia or breath through your mouth there might be other conditions that you need to look into. But I can say that taping your mouth is worth a try! I'm not promising any magical cures, however. I've been doing it for years and I can tell a drastic difference in my sleep quality when I tape vs. when I don't tape. I actually got recommended to do it by multiple different professional osteopaths and orthodontists because sleep apnea and TMJ runs in my family and I'm a mouth-breather. My immune system is also weak and I find that I get sick significantly less when I tape than when I don't.
I feel like Sam just finds these videos and makes Dr. Mike watch them just to see him angry at the content and I'm here for it😂😂
What are your thoughts on using jade gua sha/massage tools to pressure points on the face and neck to help with organ function? Such as the liver, pancreas etc?
I do think that there is a strong link between how you look and your health. I had some bad gallstones last year which were diagnosed when I got a blockage and caused me to go jaundice. After they took my gallbladder out and I have recovered, I have noticed things like my hair looking healthier, my nails are stronger, my complexion is better ... these things had all been an issue for over a year before I knew what was up and probably could have been an earlier warning that something was up 😁
Him screaming “80% of people have parasites” took me off guard and I laughed so hard 😂

Me too lol
I love how she puts up a list of parasites and the first one I see is depression well I guess I have a worm living in me now
Quiet time is an excellent idea. Waking up patients to do things, residents waking pts up to ask them questions like what their favorite color is, and my favorite: staff members talking loudly, are all counter productive
The tape one is so funny, I recently got a cpap due to severe obstructive sleep apnea, and when I did they asked if I breathe through my mouth when I sleep, because they actually have special straps that would your mouth closed and are much more comfortable than tape would be.
