Doctor Reacts To The Worst TikTok Medical Advice
You all have been sending me some WILD Tiktoks promoting some flat out dangerous and incorrect medical advice, so I put them all together for another TikTok React. Today we look at buttergirl eating butter dipped in ragu, how to stop your period in its tracks, synthol guy building muscles with oil injections, sunscreen contouring, only jayus body hacks, extreme stretching, sparkling water vs. tap water, colonic cleanses, russian chiropractor treatments, cigars vs. cigarettes, tobacco use, garlic in your nose to clean congestion, the acidity of gatorade, clearing your baby’s sinuses, keloid scars, microneedling, ear candling, earwax removal, and as always CHEST COMPRESSIONS!
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!

There’s a ton of terrible (general) advice online but some of the worse is on TikTok. This phrase basically sums up my experience with the platform.
Remember scalp popping? You separate the scalp from your skull
I’m glad my mom and dad confirm with me before trying these so called lifehacks
@Katherine I agree
Yeh but not just on tiktk lol!!
How true can someone be ?
(rubbing nose above the garlic) “I feel a lot of congestion in here.”
“Because you put garlic up your nose!”
Like how would oxygen go into your body if u block the way for it BRUH
That made me laugh so hard. Plugging up the nose and then complaining about feeling the plug. 😂
I saw a video from Fact or Cap like that and quite a few comments were saying how it just makes it worse. LOL
i love how heated mike gets when they’re wrong. But also how he gets so excited when they are accurate. you can tell he’s so passionate love it.
Misinformation is worse that no information. I respect that he is putting in this work to correct the random stuff.
@Sam Sokach absolutely
The one thing I’ve learned over the years when it comes to cpr is: the person is dead. It can’t get worse than that. You can in some cases though, bring them back to life. So breaking a few ribs really isn’t a problem at all
Actually broken ribs can heal really fast and is not that painful
They’re technically dead. Not necessarily clinically dead. They may have a pulse that is so faint we can’t detect it.
So are they dead? Dead enough to do chest compressions on.
I’m learning about cpr this year at school and hella true I prefer some broken ribs if it means I have a higher chance to be brought back
If you don’t feel like you’re gonna break their rib, you’re doing it wrong
@waityamihereagain 19 Not necessarily.

I think this guy is the only person on this site whose reaction content I actually enjoy because
a) he fact-checks the content he sees
b) he also provides really cool and possibly useful info while doing so
dr mike: “don’t punch people in the chest”
boxer mike: *literally punching ppl in the chest*
Dr mike: “You don’t need mouth to mouth, just chest compressions”
Norwegian first aid courses: ” Most other countries have gone over to saying that you only need to do chest compressions, but here in Norway we are better than them, so we do 30/2, chest compressions and mouth to mouth”
Me: Are we really?
But he does it the right way. 😹🥊🥊
You can do that, it’s not like it isn’t allowed
@Vinnes RC 30/2 is outdated and has been for at least a decade.
The principle behind chest compressions is that, if the patient is found soon enough, you’re able to keep oxygen flowing throughout their system until EMS arrives. This eliminates the need for mouth to mouth.
Not that you don’t already know this but for others reading who might not have taken a CPR class.
“It’s not personal, just buisness”
I think Dr. Mike is slowly loosing his mind from watching these TikToks. He’s really smart and I’m glad he knows what he’s doing. Plus, he’s a funny guy! 😊
Of course he’s losing his mind! Didn’t you see the brain cell count meter depleting? 😂
Guy: “Gatorade makes your body acidic and causes problems”
Gatorade: has to pass through the stomach with a pH of ~2 before being absorbed in the body anyways.
“when the body goes acidic it cannot heal”
-people who went through acidosis : guess I’ll die
