Ridiculously Absurd 5-Minute Crafts “Health Hacks”

  • Am Vor Monat

    Doctor MikeDoctor Mike

    I was pretty harsh in my critique of Five Minute Crafts when I took a look at their first-aid hack earlier this year, but since then they’ve put our some new videos with new hacks on how to keep your body in fighting shape. So today I figured I’d see if they’ve improved their medical accuracy or not. We talk about bee stings, bandaids, blisters in your heels, doctor’s visits, getting kids to take medicine, teaching children to wash their hands, headache cures, treatment for heartburn, sleep tips, cleaning your ears, back pain, anxiety, cleaning out your eyes, drinking water, cleaning your pores, and so much more. Which clips did I miss? Let me know down below!

    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 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.

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.

@Tap2Kpop 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

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 😊

@Marzipancutter You’re definitely right, that’s the whole point. For me when my medication doesn’t work, all you can do it try to distract yourself with things that are somewhat relaxing. Anything so you’re not hyper focused on the pain.

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.

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 YouTube 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.

Well, for the dry skin, honey is a humectant, so it draws moisture to it, and rose petals have been used for hundreds, if not thousands, of years for skin care, as well. Used to be a popular moisturizer that was rose and glycerin---another humectant. Also, the bee sting thing. Bunk. First, a bee dies when it stings, and the stinger has barbs that hold it in the skin. Hornets don't have those barbs, but they also don't leave their stinger.

Knowing how worked up Dr. Mike gets when he sees q-tips being put in ears, he'll probably freak out when I say I once stuck an allen key into my ear. Basically, I was wearing earplugs and when I went to pull the earplug out of my ear, it ripped in half leaving half of it stuck in my ear canal. My solution was to stick an allen key into my ear to fish the earplug out. Yes I did it carefully lmao

Really enjoy the Videos you are making Doctor Mike. And i agree on most of your arguments. I personally are suffering from diaphragmatic hernia resulting into a chronical inflamed esophagus (sorry if google translate messed things up there). So sleeping is a huuuge problem as you can expect - and yes i do sleep with my head high up using 3-4 pillows. But the interesting part is - that it also depends on what side i sleep on - interestinglich enough even though i should be laying on my left - sleeping on my ride side helps me more - maybe there is more space on the right side since my gallbladder was removed - so my stomach can slide down or not i don't know. Due to covid my operation was postponed - now i am facing the issue with fear for the operation since i had too much time to inform me the whole procedure and knowing alot of the risks - any tips on how to overcome that now?

Dr. Mike, at 7:11 where the mom tries to remove the hair tie, she is using the essential oil to break the hair tie so it won't rip out the child's hair. She would not have been able to remove them while the child was asleep without breaking them in some way. Also, the longer the hair, the harder it is to remove them. I don't know if it actually works, but these types of hair ties are not really reusable anyway. I wish I had known about this hack when my young children were using that type of hair tie. BTW - Essential oils can break down different things yet not be harmful. I plan to test this idea out since I still have one young girl that could use these. The amount of essential oil used is minimal so it would last a really long time.

6:05 The band-aid was painful for the child as her mom tried to take it off and instead of the mom pulling it down with a fast move she wet it so it would come off easier.

As a person who suffers from violent migraines, the pulling of the hair actually gives temporary relief. Grab it by the scalp and apply pressure. I learned that from my father who also suffers fr migraines , Apparently an old trick to use

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. Also peppermint essential oil in your diffuser helps with migraines too.

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.

I recently started watching your videos. And this episode is what I saw. It seriously reminded me of my Brother in law's wife. He spent several years teaching in China. And he married a typical Chinese woman. She was vastly different from the Chinese students he taught at the university. The Chinese social structure keeps the vast majority of citizens shunned from common sense thinking and promoting independent thought by letting them thrive in wives tales and superstition. They will die believing things we can only shake our heads in disbelief over... Instead of following the most obvious doctor recommendations. Recently he retired and they both now live in the States. They stayed several weeks with us, and we got to experience this over and over first hand. She's a very good person, but stuck in the deep, mystical, and irrational dark ages. They can visit anytime, but we do hope living in a much more advanced society will free her of some of her self-limiting, and sometimes dangerous beliefs.

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.

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.

@Jay Kay to be honest I dont remember much of my Sex Ed classes (in the UK) .. I do hope they are informative these days. I remember being separated girls v boys in year 6 to talk about puberty. 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.

For headaches I eat ginger and mulberry leaves. For heart burn, I stopped drinking coffee since coffee relaxes the sphincter separating the stomach and esophagus and eat lemon to further prevent or treat heard burn because it has an alkaline effect in the stomach despite it being acidic. Using the stick to push around the little car isn't even a hack, the car came with a handle that goes where she put the stick. I'm surprised you didn't mention just ripping the bandaid off as fast as possible when wetting the bandaid came along, especially when that almost never works. I put lemon essential oil in a bottle cap, let an elastic sit in it for a while and nothing happened.

I have actually found some success in laying on my right side when having heart burn instead of left... I don't know if it is medically accurate that is just my experience. the belief is that because it elevates your heart more than sleepin on the left, not as much acid reflux makes its way to the heart. but that is a case of lessening the symptoms rather than curing the cause, even if it is true.

I actually have one of those suction cups. Many people in my family are allergic to bees and it does work to remove bee stingers. Also great for if a venomous animal bites you. That being said if it's highly venomous... not helpful! Go to the doctor!

Yeeeeaaaahhh.. No. Using one of those things might make removing the stinger easier but so will a pair of tweezers (or better yet use a knife or card to scrape it out) and they are the last thing you should use for anything venomous because the suction will simply cause more veins to burst allowing for more venom to enter the blood stream.

@Sonic Cookie Once the venom has entered the bloodstream, it can’t be sucked out. It’s impossible to suck venom out once it’s been absorbed, so you’d basically need to do it immediately and even then it won’t do much.

6:07 There are certain band-aids that are waterproof and so don't come off easily with water. They usually use those types in hospital settings and I had one on me for I think about 6 days with appendicitis where the appendix ruptured and abscesses formed. A really nasty condition, I don't wish it upon anyone. Also at 9:07, other symptoms of type 2 diabetes is feeling thirsty and hungry all the time, needing to pee a lot more than usual and feeling more tired than usual.

As someone who has GERD and Gastroparesis and has spent many hours with my gastroenterologist finding ways to alleviate symptoms, I have to say that laying on the left side vs the right side does make a big difference if symptoms are flaring up. I know it won’t cure heartburn but there is truth to that one.

@Giulio17 well you aren't looking very hard. I've read at least 4 different ones with 20+ and 2 with 50+ participants And across the total studies (between the US and Europe etc) it is a total of 300+ people taking the studies that I have read alone That is apparently enough scientific rigour for multiple Drs to recommend it as a treatment plan to *help* manage a common issue

@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.

@Gabi Levran 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...

I'm dying at 8:49 (not literally of course)... The fact that they showed a woman who was like *oh no, I got some closed comedomes... aha! Great idea!* and then suddenly decides to pull out dental floss and a fricking 3D pen in order to make a comicly oversized flosser just to scrape against her nose as she watches her blackheads disappear and her skin being peeled right off her nose in a very unhygienic way... just to get rid of some acne. That was like a book that says "3 steps" on it and you open it to see steps 1, 1a, 1b, 1.1, 1.2, 1.5, and then step 2, 2.5, and 3. I at least hope the floss was mint flavored so it smelled good.

For those that suffer from Acid Reflux or GERD the sleeping on the left side really does seem to help. I can only assume it has to do with the direction or angle that the esophagus connects to the stomach, but when I'm having a Reflux flare up I can ONLY sleep on my left side. Any other orientation and things just hurt.

Thank you SO much for calling out the hair combing hack. I have OCD and there are SO many "hacks" like that exist claiming to manage anxiety and what they are really doing is causing a lot of harm. I literally carried a lollystick around for two YEARS to repeatedly stab myself with because it "made me feel better" when actually is was just placating me and bruising my hand. Never manage anxiety with rituals of any sort, its more trouble than its worth especially if you have a condition like OCD.

@Michael Palmer It does but for some not that well and not for long. Unfortunately OCD has a very high relapse percentage. I had CBT therapy for multiple weeks every year for 14 years. It did nothing. Mostly because PTSD was the thing that triggered the OCD in the first place but I wasn’t diagnosed with that until I was 29. Once I had therapy for that the ocd also got a little better with therapy but not by much. I want brain surgery but doctors says it’s too invasive and to keep trying therapy even thoug it and medication doesn’t help me at all.

I got something to say about that bacon blister one. Now I'd like to preface this by saying I have zero idea if this is how parasites work, or if it's purely through digestion. But pork can tend to have parasites, and not ones to sniff at, so let's say the blister ruptures? Now theres a potential risk of introducing parasites to an open sore, ON TOP of bacteria.

Actually, when my head hurts I do yank at my hair gently and it does something. Im not claiming nothing medical. It just feels good. It seems to help a little bit until the meds kick in. That and this stuff called White Flower oil on my temples and where the pain is. Temp relief till my meds kick in. I think that both help by temporarily distracting the pain signals by your brain focusing on the other sensations (the pulling hair *not hard just a gentle tug*, or the cooling sensation) then meds kick in and yay.
