For a reason we may never comprehend, some people think they know better than medical professionals.
Nah, I don’t need a doctor, they with precisely zero medical knowledge say holding their bleeding wound or half cut off finger.
Don’t trust the people who committed several years of their lives to studying how to fix the human body or anything. What would they know?
From super glued teeth and gummy bear fillings to poking knitting needles into bellybuttons, turns out they’ve indeed seen just about everything. You might want to grit your teeth for this, coz it’s gonna hurt.
The completely clueless home remedies.
“I had a dental patient with a dead front tooth that had turned black so she painted it with white nail polish daily.”
“An old lady swore that dog spit had healing properties so she let her dogs lick her feet when she felt it coming on. She then wanted to show me a video of said dogs licking said feet.”
“I work in dental and years ago had a patient attempt to super glue her front tooth back on after it broke in half. She screwed up and ended up gluing the chunk to her upper lip.”
“We had a patient who declined a much needed cleaning saying he could do it just as well a home with a scalpel. Didn’t brush his teeth but every few weeks he would go at the accumulated plaque and tartar with a scalpel.”
