Over the years the team at Buzzfeed has dipped their toes into the world of creating some medical videos. I have actually appeared in some of them, but today I wanted to take a look at what videos they’ve put out and see how accurate they are. A lot of their interviews with med students and nurses yield some very true stories and experiences of what it’s like to study medicine! Some of their other videos, such as how to fight off a cold… not so much. Today we’re debunking miracle cures like Apple Cider Vinegar, the value of a good nasal spray, how much coffee med students drink, and some nightmares that actual nurses have had to endure.
Never Have I Ever with Mama Doctor Jones:
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!

What the hell?! i'm not even one minute in and "pull(ing) an all nighter" is in effect in high school and college. Making mistakes happens all the time with anything!!! Everywhere!! How is this supposed to be med school specific?!

There are three effects to coffe. One is feeling awake. One is getting a sour stomach and last is activating enzymes contributing to your metabolism. All according to strength and volume you're consuming. To get the best effect you'll want a double shot of almost undrinkable coffe. Whereas like me you propably drink to much and to weak coffe. You get the tiny kick due to your addiction and an increasingly sour stomach. And you'll probably want up to 6months off if you cycle. If memory doesn't fail that's about how long it'll take you to not only have your stomach settle but having the "damage" all the way down to your colon. At least to some degree

Honey may contain botulism toxin. Not in high enough amounts to cause an issue for children or adults, but infants don't have strong enough digestive and immune systems, so they shouldn't eat honey

I remember fundamentals lab, before we get to do our first clinicals (first 7 weeks of fundamentals) and I just couldn't stay awake for the first hour. I keept nodding off right int he middle of lecture, and it was just a dozen or so of us in a circle around the instructor. I felt so bad that I kept passing out. It'd only be for a second, and the moment my head would slip a bit i'd wake. Still, i felt terrible

I did actually successfully figure out what was wrong with my ankle that had been quite painfully frozen for three years post-sprain and unfroze it in only three days with what I'd already learned about modalities and manual therapy while I was in PTA school. 👀 Four years later and I haven't had a single day of ankle pain since then and it's still fully functional. 😁

The almond thing may not help headaches, but it DOES boost noreprinephrin. (Well. ANY nuts do. Not as well as an SNRI, but like st. john's wort, they can help mild blues. I'd still rather rely on actual measured doses of clinically trialed drugs, though.)

I give my kids a teaspoon of straight honey when they have a sore throat. Then a nice cup of chamomile tea. I once read that homemade honey from a bee keeper had a natural antibiotic, but the pasteurization that it goes through to get to the supermarket kills it, although not killing all the benefits. Besides, it tastes wayyyy better right from the bees!

As someone with a chronic sinus condition, drinking a lot of water + the OTC saline sprays have helped me more than any medicinal or surgical treatment. Yes, I still get congested, but it's so much less severe bc I drink a lot of water and use the spray every morning. Thank you to my lovely ENT for telling me the magic of water I'll never forget you haha

Fever: wet sock. No, don't keep them on over night. That is stupid to the extreme. This is a treament from the 18-hundreds. Sometimes, in extreme fever cases, is applied to little children even today in Germany by desperate parents. The idea of what in German is called Wadenwickel / calve wrapping with a towel soaked in cold water was ONLY for extremely high fevers where it was imperative to quickly lower the fever below a critical level. You wrap the kid's calves in the cool, not ice-cold, wet towel, then cover that with a dry towel, then put the kid to bed with a warm blanket. At the absolute latest the wet towel is to be removed after 15 minutes, usually after 10 minutes with the calves being dried quickly. This can help reduce a dangerously high fever. No, it is NOT a cure. This is a treatment for when a fever goes badly wrong. A fever is a body's useful reaction to something wrong in the body. Only when the fever reaches dangerously high temperatures should this be applied as an emergency measure. A doctor should be consulted soonest possible in such a case.

lmao wet socks get warm on your feet though.. why not use an ice pack if you're too hot? Put on a cool fan or something. It's not going to end the actual inflammation though XD that's so weird ew... wet socks are the worst feeling.

if you want probiotics, yogurt, kefir and kombucha are much better sources than vinegar and not as hard on your stomach. All three are go-tos for me but it should be when you're having digestive issues, not just all the time when you're healthy. They're great for normal constipation but you wouldn't want to have them every day, except yogurt maybe.

If anyone is putting some water mixture up their nose, that better be with distilled water. DO NOT use tap water. Yes, the tap might be okay, but it's not worth the risk of causing yourself more problems which will cost a lot more to solve than a dirt cheap gallon of distilled water

O: about the breaking teeth thing. I've had dentists carelessly bang into my front teeth when removing their mirror instrument. ...Now I'm worried about doctors. Sooo... is there a way to relieve a headache? When I get a headache, all I can do is wait several hours for it to end; nothing I've tried seems to help. Medicines don't work for me. But when I get a bellyache, I've discovered that they go away if I fall asleep. I think it's from my tense stomach/belly/torso muscles relaxing. It doesn't work for headaches.

Hi Dr. Mike, thanks for these fun videos! I would love to know why so many doctors and nurses (at least in Germany) seem to not even think about recommending a patient to stop smoking even when they had a stroke or had to have a stent implanted. The answer I have received twice now about my mom (82 and smoker since her twenties): "She is over 18." They do not even recommend her to stop, give her tips on how to stop, or open her eyes on what she is actually doing to her body... I get that doctors and nurses are busy but I find it sad that many (at least in Germany) seem to not think of prevention of disease but only "healing for the moment" so she can be released from the hospital and is out of their care and responsibility. What do you say to that?

I have fallen asleep during the university entrance exam and was accepted. It was in Brno, some 300km from my hometown Prague, and the exam was early in the morning, so I took the 1AM train from the Main Station and didn't sleep. They told us that it was not allowed for us to leave the room even if we'd finished the test early. I had it in cca half the time, so I just dozed off for the rest :D

To anyone who may read this as offensive or with animosity, I promise you, it's meant to be light hearted and get a laugh from Dr. Mike... After all, laughter is great for health!

Fever is necessary to beat the becteria and viruses, but if the temperature is way too high, lowering it is pretty good. Use an antipyretic, not cold wet socks (cool damp cloth might be good to put on the head, at least as a placebo cure for headaches). My 50 year old dad had Corona in the Fall and I treated it with paracetamol because his temperature was often 39C in evenings. Other than that came cough medicine and such, to uncomplicate the symptoms.
