It can help whiten teeth; it’s been shown to do that. It could take a few weeks to a few months to do it.” (03:36) (Dr. Brian) “So you might remember a little while back there were people using nail files on TikTok to help to straighten their teeth.

I was doing some videos last year about that like ‘No, don’t do that. Bad idea, bad idea.” (05:20) (Dr. Brian) “Taking some pineapple and eating it can help reduce bruising and make the bruising go away faster.

So, instead of drinking beer they said, ‘You can just pour it on your head.’ So, that’s the only time I can relate to pouring beer on my head.” (03:19) (Dr. Brian) “There are studies that back up rice water being proven to help your hair grow. And not only help it grow, but actually help hair grow thicker.” (04:38) (Dr. Brian) “Studies show that eating rosemary improves memory. And even smelling rosemary can improve memory.” (07:25) (Dr. Brian) “Hair transplants can be hugely effective. And what they do is really meticulous. Imagine taking one hair follicle at a time and then transplanting it to where the hair is thinning or balding.” (09:30) (Dr. Brian) “I think it’s important if you’re coloring your hair to be aware that there is a risk that over time those hair dyes can cause permanent dropout of the hair follicles.” (11:04) (Dr. Brian) Links Mentioned Dr. Brian’s Website Dr. Brian’s TikTok Dr. Brian’s Instagram Please remember, Doctor Brian is a doctor, but he is not your doctor.

That’s why people grow when they’re teenagers or kids. But when the growth plates close, the Growth Shop is essentially closed.” (01:51) (Dr. Brian)  “This is crazy. You’re not gonna believe this, but X-Ray machines used to be in shoe stores. And the people operating them were shoe salespeople. They would X-Ray kids’ feet before they got them shoes.” (03:31) (Dr. Brian)  “One of the main factors that causes growth plates to close is the hormone estrogen.
