Doctor Mike and Mortician React To “Six Feet Under”

Caitlin Doughty is the creator behind the UZworld channel “Ask A Mortician” where she normalizes death and educates her audience about what happens after… well… you know. Being the brilliant mortician she is, I thought it would make a lot of sense for us to not react to a medical drama, but a death drama, so we watched HBO’s Six Feet Under. Despite my years of medical training and experience, there isn’t a lot I know about what happens to the human body after it dies, so Caitlin enlightened me to things such as what happens to prosthetics, the smells of a mortuary, and what happens to your various orifices.

  • Caitlin's channel helped me so much after my grandma passed away. I have always had a horrible fear of dead bodies until I lost her, and being with her for months as she was sick, I guess I got over it, not sure. But I was left with all these questions and Caitlin's channel was my go-to at that time. Love her so much!!

  • Hi!! I'm a 2nd year med student and just wanted to add something to this topic: in my uni, the anatomy labs have long stopped using formaldahyde as a preserving agent and use a chemical called Thiel instead, which has a MUCH better smell. My mom told me horror stories about how she and her fellow med students used to get sick from the smell of formaldahyde, to the extent of throwing up sometimes, so i was very relieved when i walked into the dissection room and barelt smelled anything!! 😅😅 Also, Dr Mike i absolutely love u, and often use your vids as some sort of unofficial revision!!

  • I appreciate that the two of you took the time to discuss the disconnect or catharsis one might feel when faced with the body of a loved one. My best friends aunt recently passed away, and one of her final requests was for my friend to be the one to do her hair and makeup for her funeral. She asked if I would go with her, and of course I said yes. We were a little concerned our request would be denied by the funeral home, since we live right in the middle of Conservative Christian Kentucky, but luckily they were more than understanding and accommodating. I'm about to enter Mortuary School in the spring, and have always been very death positive, but this was my first experience with an actual corpse outside of a funeral, so I was super nervous, as was my friend. There were understandably a few tears and anxiety at first, but by the time we were finished we were laughing and cutting up like we weren't in the middle of prettying up her dead aunt. It was such an amazing experience, and it helped both of us grieve and begin to heal. I've always wanted to open a funeral home in my area that focuses on each families personal experience with death and allows them to incorporate aspects of funerals in the past that aren't common anymore like washing the body, fixing hair and makeup, and having wakes and burials in or on the property of the family home as allowed by law. Thank you for making it your mission to normalize death, dying, and grief, and thank you for inspiring me to do the same.

  • What Caitlin said about how dead bodies of loved ones look to people reminded me of when my maternal grandfather died back in March of '09. He was going to be cremated, and my Aunt Kathy had asked to see his body before they put it into the furnace. We all went in there so she could do and say what she needed to, and it was so surreal. He didn't look different at all. He looked like he was sleeping, as if he would open his eyes from his nap any moment, look over at us, and smile. He didn't look like how I expected; he looked *better* than I expected, and that was comforting to me. It was very much a relief, especially after the hard grieving I did when I got the news.

  • I'm native American, like a lot. 82%, and ever since I was a literal baby, I've been to funerals of people on my reservation and people on my other side of the family's reservations. I don't like to look at the body's today, but a common thing is to have a funeral in the gymnasium, that's how many people come, several hundred, and when the service is done a line forms to shake hands with the family sitting in the front row and then loops to walk by the body and the table that has old photos, etc on it. Then after the service we drive, in a super long caravan to the graveyard and we have another short service and we bury our own, literally. The younger men, and about 8 to 10 shovels, they take turns literally putting dirt onto the casket. Then after that's done, everyone goes back to the gymnasium and has a big feast. This is where we laugh and talk and see relatives we haven't seen since the last funeral, because they live hours away. Anyway, the funeral is about 6 hours to 8 or more if it's out of town. Whenever I've been to a funeral of a caucasian person, it's in a funeral home, and we don't see the burial and if there's a meal, it's much more somber and you can practically take a lunch hour to attend a funeral. When I was in college and a friend who I was in the car with died in an accident we were in, for many of my peers, who obvs weren't native, this was their first funeral they'd ever been to. I felt bad for them because they were a lot more shocked and scarred by it. For me, it was scarring, but only because I was in the car and I survived with only bruises and severe whiplash. I feel bad for people who are in their 30s who are attending their first funeral because it's something that's not natural for them, and I think could be very traumatic.

  • Loved this collab. I’ve been following both of you on UZworld for a long time now! Dr. Mike, can you do a video on what migraines are? And why they are different from “just a headache?” I’m so sick of people telling me (specially employers) that “I do my normal work when I have a bit headache, so can you.” And I find myself having trouble trying to explain why this thing I’m having is so so much more than just “a bit of an headache.” Probably because when i have a migraine I really really don’t to be talking to people about what a migraine is. I want them to STFU, close the door or hang up. I want to lay in my bed in a room as dark as can be!

  • GUYS! PLEASE HELP ME GET LIKES ON THIS COMMENT SO DR. MIKE CAN SEE THIS. Hey, Dr. Mike! There's an on-going controversy surrounding the case of Dr. Farrah Agustin-Bunch and her false "naturopathic" approaches to health and diseases, making claims that "cabbage compresses" can alleviate inflammation such as dermatitis and muscle strains and garlic to cure cancer. She has also been very active in promoting products that are NOT REGISTERED IN THE FDA with misleading claims that they can cure ALL KINDS OF AILMENTS, an example of this, that her Vitamin C/Boston C supplements is the mainstay or flagship product of her cancer therapies. She's been "treating" hundreds of thousands of patients without proper referral to any specialty consultants, and have made misinformation on her medical degrees (publicly stating that she was a Harvard Medicine-graduate whereas, she only took a 5-hour online course from Harvard). There is another UZworldr, Doc Adam, a legitimate and licensed healthcare practitioner who made several videos exposing her. At this point Doc Adam is on a legal battle Dr. Farrah's, wherein the latter had sued the prior for "defaming her professional reputation" and is demanding for 100,000 USD for all the damages caused. I want to know your take on this Dr. Mike. At this day and age, people are still falsifying their authority to make profit off of other people's health problems and insecurities. If you were so brave to tackle on this, it would really help shed some light on this topic.
