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!

"Why are they trying to KILL CHILDREN!?" That one finally broke me down.

As a former paramedic I am gratified to know that actual doctors yell just as much about choking hazards in videos as I do.

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.

The rubber bands one is relatively safe actually. The chemical reaction going on is limonene in the lemon essential oil dissolving the rubber and causing it to fail. Limonene is also in orange and lemon peels naturally. It's the same chemical reaction that happens if you've ever seen one of those "pop a balloon with an orange peel" videos.

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.

I love that Dr. Mike was more concerned about the little girl swallowing a seed, but I’m more concerned about her psychological health bc she’s gonna think watermelon tastes like milk😂😂😂

The way Sam questioned how to cope with anxiety shows that therapy isn't the first thing people think of when dealing with something like that. As a psychology mayor student it really stood out to me. Not saying Sam is ignorant or anything, just stating the importance of therapy in people's everyday life. Great work there Mike❤️

The old “pill in a treat” is such BS - our boy kitty 🐱 (a kid that age would never chew a gummy bear and not notice that massive bitter pill in there) figured out

The “oil” on the rubber band hair ties is more of a cosmetic hack. Definitely does not have to be essential oils, olive oil works great too. If I’m not mistaken, it breaks down the elasticity of the ties without breaking your hair. I just did this with my partner a month ago when he got his braids removed. The stylist recommended this.

That was absolutely hilarious and a great way to end my day. I love your laugh Doctor Mike and your nephew’s response to it is a wet or dry campus. 😂😂
I like how the problem presented in the Swing hack one is that she's paying so much attention to the phone that she forgets to keep swinging the kid....and that the kid is close enough to get her attention.

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've had GERD for years (to the point that I have it back up into my airway and i throw up) and have had FAR less problems when sleeping on my left side. OBVIOUSLY medication and reduction of certain foods works better, but from time to time this is the trick that helps me get the last little bit of GI comfort.
