I’ve taken a look at disturbing health posts showing up everywhere from NOburn 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!

Why would someone NOT sleep on their left side? That's the easiest way to keep your stomach juices where they belong and avoid heartburn.

I love the videos, they're fun and informative. Could you help me please? I suffer from Restless Leg Syndrome. It keeps me from sleeping. I eat well, I run 60 to 80 Kms a week. Do you have any tips on how I can get rid of it, or at least calm it down? I can go weeks without it, and then suddenly suffer up to four or five nights straight with it. I stick to the same routine and foods. So I don't know what's causing it . Thanks in advance.

I know you were trying to be as ridiculous as possible with the "electrical charge leaving the body by walking barefoot" statement, but that's pretty close to what they literally claim. I've heard things as wild as walking barefoot helps attune your bodies vibrations with the frequency of the universe.

I'm a dancer and dance can boost memory if you're learning new choreography all the time like I have to. Not trying to like contradict a literal doctor but just saying if dance is your career it can.

in response to the baby pressure point post, i think its good to note that while reflexology is a form of alt med and is not a substitute for actual medical advice and intervention when needed, it definitely can help with things like colic, headaches, and minor aches. My dad is a massage therapist, and growing up he always used pressure points to ease any minor pain my sisters or i had. Of course its not an exact science, but it does zero harm and is good to at least try out!

I have a bone to pick dr mike. Lol first off I want to say I love your channel and videos. Great work seriously. In scientific terms a theory is something that usually has a substantial amount of research and facts into it. A hypothesis is more like a guess though and something that definitely needs more research. Just thought I'd tell you that. A lot of anti science people constantly say "oh it's just a theory" like yes bro.... because it has lots of facts and research data already to support it. That's why it's called a theory.

I've had the MMR vaccine twice, because my college was dumb, and getting it the first time two weeks before I turned 1 was not good enough. Guess what? NO AUTISM. The study that tried to "prove" that was disproved and showed to be false a loooooooong time ago.

Pressure points they do in reflexology. All the points on the bottom of your feet are for different areas of your organs and parts of your body pressing them can help. Works!

Ah okay so I think with the baby one 🤓 you apply gentle pressure to those areas of the foot if the baby has some sort of pain or discomfort in the areas it was relating to?

Hey dr. Mike, speaking of autism can there be a video about the presentation of autism in women? I’ve seen a few articles about how women get diagnosed less frequently or often misdiagnosed with bipolar disorder. Also I found it interesting that adults are finding out they have ASD when it’s more commonly thought of as a disability in children. I’d like to see more information about inclusive neurodiversity for adults since children seem to be the main topic that is thought of when autism is mentioned.

The Fernet is an argentine drink and its ALCOHOL we DO NOT drink it alone because it's too strong, we drink it with coke and we would usually poor like a 25% fernet 75% coke ratio . If you drink that and that much so as to get rid of your hangover, you'll probably remain the same or worsen it by 10 times!!! Also the mint part, we also have an alternative fernet that already has mint in it lol.

I sleep like a dead person on my back with my hands on my stomach. I can't sleep at all if my hands are above that position. Though sometimes I wake up on my stomach with my arms underneath me on my stomach as well.

Dancing has a lot of overcross motivations that require a lot of coordination and interneurinal communication within the brain. So you could argue that it is a good for memory.

I think what they ment there is that if you press a certain part of the baby's foot,they will feel it in a certain area,
like if you press the baby's toes the baby will feel it in their Head and Teeth

Once , I watched a movie where the love interest told the protagonist to have a beer AND a painkiller in the morning in order to not be hungover. I was shocked and appalled, and that was before I took one course in basic first aid and 2 courses in medical first aid. The best cure for a hangover, in my opinion, is either drink enough water during and after alcohol consumption or just simply don't drink so much that it gives you a hangover.

About the sleeping position... It's not healthy to do the middle one since your spine is HEAVY and your organs are soft, this means that your spine can like droop on your organs.

You should do a diabetes fact video, from my experience as being a type 1 diabetic not many people know much about it. For example when I was 6 my friends mom thought she could not give me sugar, also not many people know that there are multiple types of diabetes.

The MMR vaccine doesn't even contain the mercury-based preservative, Thimerosal, that was originally blamed for causing autism in the first place. It's terrifying how many people will believe nonsense just because it's in Meme form.
