Apple Cider Vinegar Benefits? | Responding to Your Comments | Doctor Mike

– Eigil0, I think you are
slowly turning me gay. I might unsub, love the videos though. (dance music) Hey guys, excited to jump back into the comments section. Let’s see what you gave me this week. Fedora Miaza, dear Dr. Mike, what happens if I get struck by lightning? I think you get severely burned. A lightning strike because
of electrical activity can also stop your heart but I know people who have gotten struck by lightning at least from the news, and survived. I’ve never seen a patient
get struck by lightning. I think the odds are something like one in 4,000 that you can
get struck by lightning. We need to look that up. I’ll pop it up on screen in my edit, Should a doctor treat relatives or patients that they know? If yes, how would it affect their objectivity and judgement? It depends on the doctor. Some doctors can still be objective in treating their friends and family. Not ideal, because again you can make some bad decisions when treating your friends or family. In fact, my dad whenever I was ill even though he’s a doctor he would always take me to see another doctor because he would say
like another set of eyes that’s not biased, that
doesn’t see you every day. They can sort of catch things that maybe his eye won’t catch and I agree with that. Lois de Boer, career economics sentence farmer judge stroke burning attributes slam intense frankly. Truth be told, George Washington’s pet puppy came at the
light of the bookshelf on the TV stand who stood upon the wires microphone et cetera. Hope that answered your question. (laughs) What was that? Karen Apellaniz, hey Dr.
Mike you are awesome. Thank you. I was wondering what body fat percentage is too low for men or for women. We hear a lot about being overweight but commonly not about being too thin. You look at Instagram and some of these physiques that you see,
they’re not realistic. One of two things is happening. You’re either getting really extremely plastic surgery or you’re photoshopping yourself to look thinner
than you actually are. Now, the way that you should look at it is not some much by
body fat but looking at your BMI which compares your height to your weight and
there’s a chart for this where you can actually see your height and then match your weight and see what number you are. 18.5 to 24.9 is the normal range. Anything above 24.9 to 30 is overweight, above 30 is obese, below
18.5 is underweight. See where you fall in that little range and then go talk to your doctor and have a conversation about it. Please make a podcast. I would love to learn new things from you during my commute. Salls, I want to make a podcast. I feel like I have a lot to say. I’ve learned a lot on my journey and while this is a great way for us to communicate, I feel like a podcast where I could sort of
just tell you how I feel and talk about some current events, maybe have some guests on the show and have interesting conversations, that’s something I’m excited about. Maybe Salls, you could do me a favor. You could write a comment down below and say anyone who wants Dr. Mike to start a podcast, upvote this. I’m going to give you a challenge. 20,000 upvotes, I will begin the process of starting a podcast. The challenge has been given. Megan Meyer, hey Dr. Mike,
does Lightning McQueen get car insurance or life insurance? Lightning McQueen. Lightning McQueen sounds like a character from one of those things, Cars. God, I’m so out of touch with reality. That’s what happens you’re trapped in a hospital all day. If it’s a car, I would say car insurance because if a car dies the life insurance company is going to sue
the car insurance company and it’s a whole lot of insurance nonsense and I hate insurance. This is why lawyers make so much money and doctors don’t because they bill by like, the minute as opposed to doctors we’re all altruistic folks that just want to help everybody. Not hating on lawyers, you
do some great work also. Do you have doctor related dreams? For example, do you dream about medical procedures, surgeries, et cetera? Actually, Allison, I’ve
had some dreams like that and they were nightmares. Like, I would go in to inject a knee with steroids for someone who has really bad osteoarthritis and when I would start injecting the steroid the knee just starts swelling like crazy and
blood goes everywhere and it was a legitimate nightmare that I had over and over
again during my training. I have no idea why. HJK, hi Dr. Mike. What is the science behind
being lactose and tolerant? I think you mean lactose
intolerant, but I get it. I am lactose intolerant and I have been trying to drink milk more often to help get my body liking it again. Can that actually work? Thank you. Not a good idea because your body is already saying that
it doesn’t like milk. When you’re lactose intolerant, you’re not having an autoimmune reaction. You’re just missing the
enzyme that breaks down the sugar component of
milk which is lactose and the enzyme that
you’re missing is lactase. Sometimes people do well with a pill form of the enzyme lactase. It doesn’t work for everybody and it’s sort of hit or miss. My advice would be just
to skip out on dairy foods as often as possible. Make sure you’re getting
calcium and Vitamin D from other sources because usually that’s one of the main sources
of calcium and Vitamin D for most folks, but if
you’re going to enjoy some cheese, some pizza, some cereal make sure you do it when no one’s around. I know those symptoms can be rough. (laughs) How do I tell my doctor I have depression because when I start to bring it up I get anxiety and just back out? Well, Angela, this is
sort of the doctor’s job. They’re supposed to make
your feel comfortable. They’re supposed to ask you some guided questions to allow you to express the way you feel without
making you feel uncomfortable. That doesn’t mean there’s
nothing to do on your part. You should still really work to make sure that your feelings come out honestly, openly, and truthfully
because when you do that not only will you get
a big sense of relief by just getting that
information out there, but then with that information the doctor can then go ahead and help you. It doesn’t mean necessarily that they’re going to prescribe you a medication. So many people are afraid
that, oh the doctor’s just going to tell me to take a pill and I don’t want to take a pill. There are a lot of
treatments for depression that are not just pharmacologic. Don’t feel down, Angela. Stay confident, tell
your doctor the truth. Be honest and open and reap the benefits of getting your treatment. Kelly Kawaguchi, does apple cider vinegar really have all the
benefits that people claim? No! Apple cider vinegar is
not the next coming. Honestly, I blame the media for this. Someone came up with some study that showed that in
mice there was a slight decrease in blood sugar
levels in diabetic mice and now they claim that apple
cider vinegar cures all. It does not. I do need to do a little bit more research to find out exactly how
it effects each condition, but I promise you it does
not solve every problem and you shouldn’t use it as
a cure all for everything. In fact, I’ve seen some patients use it and actually have some stomach upset and have some other problems develop as a result of using it. Hey Dr. Mike, how often should you shower for someone with eczema or dandruff? Well, Cheeseguyguyguy1,
if you have dandruff using a shampoo that is specifically anti-dandruff shampoo is ideal. You could also use some natural oils like tea tree oil or
manuka oil or coconut oil. I’ve seen some good results with that. If you shower very often,
for someone who has eczema you can overly dry out your skin and cause eczema symptoms to get worse. Also very important that
when you’re susceptible to eczema and you want to dry yourself after the shower, don’t rub your skin. Just pat yourself dry so you don’t irritate the skin anymore
than it needs to be. Hey Dr. Mike, I’m curious. What is the most embarrassing
moment of your life? Munise, I’ve said this
before and I’ll say it again and it’s sad so get ready for a sad story. I was four years old and my brain had just turned on because I was making memories and I remember this. I was in pre-k and it was nap time and I pooped my pants a little bit. I had diarrhea and in Russia, since they were very
strict and disciplinarian if you will, they made
me walk around naked while they washed my
underwear in the water fountain in the sink and another teacher walked in just as they were doing that and I had to stand there naked. Cold, it was cold too. And they were cleaning out my poop. It was very embarrassing. That moment stuck with me. I will never poop my pants again until maybe I’m very, very old and I’m incontinent and at which point I will wear diapers so I don’t have to wash my underwear and I’ll make sure nobody has to see me nude except my nurse, or my caretaker, or my
doctor, or my family members. This has turned into a weird story from a sad story and I’m
sorry you had to hear this. (laughs) I love responding and
reading your comments. You guys crack me up with your questions. I love trying these new formats also, so if you have a format that you’ve seen somewhere else or maybe you’ve created in your mind and you want me to do it, drop me a line down below in the comments because I don’t only
just respond to comments in videos like this, I also jump into the comments sections and respond directly to folks. As always, stay happy and healthy. (upbeat dance music)

  1. Do you have any recommendations for treating depression and mental illness without talk therapy, or for people who can't regularly see a therapist for one reason or another? I'm a SAHM and think that I need some help, but I don't think it would be appropriate to bring my son with me to therapy, plus every time I've tried talk therapy I end up crying uncontrollably for an unknown reason so I'm not particularly fond of it.

  2. Thanks for the apple cider heads up! My mom just bought me a bottle. Hahaha yeah research is good to get facts.

  3. The information about BMI was really helpful. I thought I was overweight but it turns out I am healthy. Thanks Dr. Mike.

  4. So..I am a bit of a hypochondriac but also super anxious about going to see a doctor due to so many not understanding/judging my latex allergy, so I am super thankful for your videos. Of course this isn’t the ideal way to take care of my anxiety haha, but it is very helpful for me. Also if you could share some info about latex allergies that would be awesome. It seems like no one knows about it!

  5. Dr Mike can you please talk about low blood pressure? I have a bp of 92/56, in 20 years old and feeling faint all the time is getting annoying. I’ve been to my Dr and they’re not doing anything about it, what’s your opinion on increasing your sodium to raise bp? And is there any other way that doesn’t include meds (also I have kidney disease so I steer clear of excess salt)

  6. BMI is Bullsh*t. As an example a bodybuilder can have a BMI over 30 and would me extremely overweight but they might have a fat % around 2-3.

  7. Just a helpful comment: Apple cider vinegar cures common warts! Worked for me anyway. Put some on a cotton ball and tape or bandaid it to your finger overnight!

  8. Lactose intolerant becomes 'lactose and tolerant'? Gotta be an American. 'cause they are the ones that come up with 'should of' when it's supposed to be SHOULD'VE.

  9. I would also caveat that whether or not a doctor should treat family is what exactly they're dealing with. I dont think it's a good idea for a doctor to preform mitral valve repair on their mother, but writing your friends kid a script for an ear infection is probably more okay.

  10. So I've struggled with my weight for years I mentioned it to my dr and we have tried a bunch of different diets and stuff to lose weight and seen specialists however for whatever reason I only loose weight when pregnant. Ever heard of this?

  11. hey dr. mike , i think i may have bpd , but it's self diagnosed and i know that when i go to the doctors and ask about it they won't believe me because i first heard of it from Crazy ex girlfriend (tv show). what would be a good way to start that convocation.
    Also , love you channel. your nutritional videos has helped me lose 3 1/2 stone (49 lbs) , I still have a long way to go but i'm getting there .x

  12. I tried doing the shot of apple cider vinegar to lose weight. Biggest mistake of my life! I've had horrible stomach issues since! I've been on omeprazole for 6 months! 😭😭

  13. Hi Dr. Mike I wanted to know if there was any alternatives to exercise and dieting to lose weight safely? Btw your videos are amazing ❤️x

    i know it’s not good to watch videos before sleeping ( obviously watched you sleep video) buuuuut you talking about medicine which is super interesting for me (what’s Netflix? Nothing good there, just watching your videos all day long) relaxes me a lot and decreases my anxiety i feel like so I watch your videos to fall asleep. BUT because I listened when you said you should be around blue light when you try to sleep, I would love a podcast so I can just listen 🙂 thanks ❤️

  15. I feel like BMI is really inaccurate. Like football players easily have a BMI of around 30 but most have very low body fat

  16. Bmi isn't always supper accurate, nor is ones weight tbh. As long as someone looks fit/toned, they shouldn't worry too much about the numbers. a person with more muscle that weighs the same as a person with more fat, assuming equivelant heights, would have the same Bmi. But the person with more muscle would be far more athletic looking

  17. ACV is not a cure-all lol. It really isn't but it is good for some things. For me personally it helps when my GERD flares as well as mustard. I hate taking meds so I look for other avenues. Oh I love using it in my homemade skin masks and hair products for clarifying.

  18. So very sad, if they did that in the US, its considered child abuse.
    You are so upbeat and seem down to earth. Bet you are a hoot to work with! Enjoy your videos, hoping you continue making them a long time 😎

    Also a podcast is a great idea. 🤟🤟🤟

  19. Hey Dr Mike! I'm a nurse at a retirement home and Im wondering about how u would raise blood sugar in someone who has… Short gut syndrome? I have been trying honey and it works for a short period of time. This person has glucose injections that help and sometimes are short lived. Maple syrup doesn't agree with them either. He can't eat anything solid after 6pm. Any tips?

  20. Hi dr Mike. Thanks for great content. Does the hair loss treatment work? And what is the best way to keep my hair. I am only 28 years old and my hair is getting thinner and thinner.

  21. On the bmi chart I read obese as cheese
    Also when it came to the lactose intolerance question I was like my teacher was allergic strawberries, at strawberries often cause she liked the hey look she is somehow not allergic anymore

  22. What if you are underage and have anxiety your doctor will tell your parents about mental health things you HAVE to hide, or about your sexuality you have to hide too

  23. Ok Dr. Mike! There’s about 100 comments about your podcast. If you add all the like up it’s WAY over 20,000 upvotes. Yay podcast!

  24. I disagree with your saying not to be concerned with body fat % and JUST looking at BMI. when I was still on active duty, ( before I had a parachute accident, and beame unable to live how I had) I was 6'3" tall, and 265 lbs. because of the levels and types of exorcise I was doing, and my genetic predisposition to bulk up muscularly, I was down to 6-1/2% body fat. according to the BMI chart I was overweight, but the doctors did a tank/hydro test to determine my Body fat, and then gave me a Profile ( military version of a prescription for non medication orders) to eat 4 meals and a snack every day, with increased calorie and fat intake, because they said my low percentage was unhealthy.

  25. I know a guy near my house who got struck by lightning his 70% of body got burned but somehow Dr save his life. But his life is nothing know so I have to say something to people's those are so busy in life. Never go to work on or anywhere else in thunderstorms because it's dangerous for you maybe you are one of 3000 so take care of your life because that's important then work.

  26. So your nurse can see you nude what is reason behind this I am a medical student and I want to know about this😂

  27. Yeah, but what if you are a very muscular, sporty person and your bmi is too high and yet you are not overweight?

  28. Thumbs down to him doing a podcast👎👎I'm trying to look at him while I'm getting my doctoring🥰🥰🥰❤🥰❤😍❤❤❤😍❤😍❤😍😍😍

  29. Im so disappointed about the Apple Cider Vinegar one!!! Ive being hearing how it is a "instant cure" for persistent and chronic constipation. This has been a problem for so long. I heard of this "cure" and went on lunch to buy a bottle of it to try it over the weekend. To hear this breaks my heart, i was counting on something finally curing or making a sinificant improvement in this issue. I managed eat right and exercise to keep cholesterol, blood pressure, weight and all that in control but constipation has been a problem that continues to get worse and worse.

  30. Hey Dr. Mike, I found you very cute and handsome 😍 and I love the way you speak and interact with us. May I know how's your girlfriend look like ?

  31. How exactly does it work with doctors having doctors? If you are an educated doctor should you not be able to take most if not all test yourself? And if you have diabetes (type 1) and your glucose foes far enough down to the point where you pass out and start getting spasms is there any repercussions that affect you long term?

  32. Dr Mike….d Caribbean says from Trinidad and tobago…my question is…do u have a facial routine…giggles…your face is really clear and smoothe any helpful hints

  33. Hey Doctor Mike! Question about listening to music and working out. I've heard it can be bad because it can offset your breathing. True or False?

  34. Tbh I like dr Mike but I don’t think he’s the best looking doctor cuz most doctors are old and not famous so if there is someone looks good then he is famous but he isn’t bad looking tho

  35. Okay, so I'm about a year late to this video 😂 But wanted to comment on the not being able to talk to a doctor about depression and anxiety. I was like this, would start to bring it up, but then anxiety would overwhelm me and I'd just never back out. What finally worked for me was writing a letter before I went in. Sitting in my kitchen and writing it all out, then handing it to my doctor was SO MUCH EASIER than trying to word it in the office 😊

  36. Hi Doctor Mike, I’m an kid/preteen with dandruff. I’ve tried head and shoulders because my doctor recommended it, but it’s not really helping that much. What do you think I should do?

  37. I am underweight, but I can't gain weight. I can eat anything I want without gaining weight. I am 167cm tall and I weigh 49kg. But I feel completely healthy (even if I'm not doing any kind of sports😂)

  38. You should do a Video about HIPPA, and the importance on Directives/pull the plug/POA's. As one that prepares them myself, sometimes it's hard to tell them to get it done, because all they think I'm trying to do is make money and that it's "not a real concern."

  39. Your most embarrassing story was so sad 😭I run a daycare and I would never make a kid feel humiliated because of an accident no matter how old they are. No one likes to clean up poop, but still…

  40. To kingeddiam
    I most certainly on reddit and have been for a long time! And reddit it for everyone not just pro who post there! Seriously get over yourself!! Lol

    I had to correct the name of the person telling me not to use reddit. Names…

  41. I'm sure Dr. Mike is right about the questionable effects of apple cider vinegar but I will say at least for me it is nice for your hair. Don't do it too often if you have roommates thought because it will make the bathroom smell of vinegar.

  42. And yes I do realize this is not reddit my comment included a sub reddit and this bug someone for some reason and I don’t feel like fixing my reply to that person so I will say it here ! There is nothing wrong with reference it here on YouTube it was appropriate considering the reason that I did!! And I am actively on Reddit so are many here so yes it made sense to do so!! So please do not yell at me for doing so!!… thank you!!?. To anyone else who left a nice reply thank you so much!!..
