      Did you get a chance to watch this? I thought the birth segment was awful. Not very balanced at all. Just so much “birth is scary and dangerous” stuff. Jen

      Hi Jen! I’m glad you posted a comment about it. I didn’t get to see it because I don’t have a television right now. I’m disappointed to hear the birth segment was so bad, especially after I was so happy having a home birth!

    • Jennifer B

      If you visit their website, you can see the trailer for the episode, as well as read some of the comments made by viewers (under the Community tab). A lot of homebirthers are very upset by their treatment of the issue.
      http://www.thedoctorstv.com/main/show_page/13 Also, did you get to check out BirthActivist’s blog on the topic? She had a sample of the questionnaire the Doctor’s were sending to homebirthers. You could see that they were biased from the get-go.
      I did not have a homebirth myself because of several reasons, mainly being that I had placenta previa and was high risk, and I did not think that my family would support it even if I was not high risk. I did however have a wonderful hospital birth with a CNM. But I think that it is wonderful option for many women. It just seems that this show is perpetuating the “turf war” over birth. Jen

      Hi Jen,

      I did check out the BirthActivist’s post and the forum discussion — thanks for the heads up. I wish I could give every expecting mother, and obstetrician and pediatrician, a copy of “Ina May’s Guide to Childbirth.” It is a shame how the medical profession insists on unnecessary and even dangerous interventions in the birth process.

      Should have heard their reply today on formula feeding. This was my first time watching this show, but I will never watch it again – completely irresponsible. I have already written to them about my disappointment.

      Need Help: Can you tell me what I can do to treat Excessive Sweating and BODY ODOR? Have tried products such as NULLO & other Body Odor OTC Meds, but very little help. Have received a very slight relief of the Body Odor from drinking 14 oz of water, daily, with 3 drops of Tea Tree Oil mixed in, but again, only Slight Odor relief, and is Tea Tree Oil taken orally safe? Am a 59 yr. old male and this problem is an overwhelming life problem, both professionally and socially. Please, can you help? I live in Charlotte, NC, but will be moving to Greensboro, NC next week. My primary physician says he knows of nothing that would help. WHO should I see and what are treatments for this overwhelming problem??? Please help !

      I love the new show The Doctors. I’ve watched it everyday except twice since it started. I agree with Dr. Sears on hospital birth. So many things can go wrong. I was in labor 36 hours w/o pain medication. (my choice) My son got stuck in the birth canal and every time I pushed his heart-rate would go dangerously low. They did an emergency c-section and saved both our lives. Without the hospital doctors and my alert nurse we both would have died. I lost 2 liters of blood so I was glad that I was able to get the help I needed on the spot. At home I would have bled to death. Thank you goes to the medical staff @ REX hospital, N.C. for saving my son & myself.

    • http://www.breastfeeding123.com Angela White, J.D., breastfeeding counselor

      Lisa, I believe every woman should give birth where she is most comfortable. I do not, however, believe that hospital birth horror stories are such good recommendations for hospital births! Perhaps a midwife who practices out of a clinic or does home birth would have techniques or positions that could help the baby through the birth canal. And if not, midwives are trained to know when to send women to the hospital by ambulance or car. Calling ahead gets women into surgery quickly. Overall statistics say out of hospital births have lower c-section rates and better outcomes for mothers and babies.

      Hello, love your show.
      regarding your show on black mold & asbestosis.
      I have asbestosis, father died from asbestosis & really concerned that all of my schools which have notices that the buildings contain asbetos. What would you do. Also, I think the woman you featured with breathing problems needs legal counsel & health insurance advise. I believe doctors should have more education & knowledge to help advise thier patients on this issue. I can tell you that my doctors are very concerned & compasionate but were unable to advise me in these areas. I have worked with them every step through my legal fight & now they are more knowedlable. Doctors are responsible to fill out many forms & if they are not done correctly & often, the patients suffer. I would like very much to discuss more & feel a follow up show should be aired.

      Bob Bauer (631-796-2277)
      keep up the good work on your show.

    • Leah Parks

      I’d like very much to view an episode about H
      Pylori. Last year, I had it…now my fiance has it.
      I have pulled up many articles on this ugly stuff.
      Some say it is contagious…some say not. If you will let me know when (hopefully) then I will try to be home to view and listen closely. We both need to know. Our family phys. hasn’t said much about it. Thanks so much in advance…Love your show. Leah

      My wife was wondering on the October 17th 2008 show, at the end of the program you said something that is in your refrige-that makes your hair great. What was it? Thank you.

    • ann coburn

      First of all, I love your show.
      My question is, on oct 16, there was a question about a 13 year old girl that was having problems with her period. My sister’s granddaughter is having the same problem, she has been passing blood clots for 3 weeks and hot flashes and very moody,cramps real bad,she is 16 year old.
      could she be going through menapause at that age.
      thank you.

    • Kelli

      Sweating – body odor, feet…arm pits. I emailed to ask them when people have a problem with body odor to let people know there IS a product that does work. I ordered from Amazon & have never gone back to regular deoderant, it truly does work. My feet used to reek. It’s called
      Thai Crystal Deodorant Mist – Bottle of 8 Oz – 100% Natural Hypo-allergenic & it’s relatively inexpensive. I don’t recommend the stone, or roll-on as the roll on was messy. The “Mist” truly does work better than any deoderant I’ve ever tried. It works by blocking the bacteria that causes the odor from growing.

    • Nick

      RE: Excessive sweating & body odor, etc. I just found my inquiry about these problems had been posted here. Thanks, Killi, for your response. I think I had other responses as well, but may have deleted without realizing they were answers to my excessive sweating and body odor. If you posted a response, PLEASE re-post so I won’t miss them again. Really appreciate your advice and HELP ! Many Thanks….Nick

    • Jennifer B

      How did a breastfeeding support blog turn into a forum for “The Doctors”? You all do realize that this is NOT a website for the show and no one from the show will answer your questions? This blog is about breastfeeding, birth practices and childrearing, so if your comments are about these topics, comment away! If not, please go to The Doctors’ own website at http://www.thedoctorstv.com/main/show_page/13 and comment there. Thank you!

      I have cysts all over my body just under the skin. I have been told they are called “Fatty cysts”. They asre now itching and sometimes sore. They vary in size. I have quit going to the doctors because I get the same line. Leave them alone andyou will be fine. My arms and legs look horrible and I also have cysts in the breast. I have in the past had then asperated, I have cut out caffiene. I dislike my body and do not want anyone to see me without being fully clothed this includes my husband. Is there anything you can tell me to do or help me get rid of these ugly lumps, so that I can live again. My last Gyn visit was 2 yrs ago. I really need you help……………Mary Lou

      Hello Doctors,

      I heard on your program (a few days ago) this week about re-growing specific human

      an organ (veins, hart, and other parts) by using pigs enthralls.

      I also, saw another program related to the same subject and they showed the process of

      how they scraped away all the fatty tissues molded it as a vein. They also showed a live

      beating hart.

      I’m interested in this process because I have COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary

      Daisies).

      The Veteran Administration Medical Center plans to give me a new lung possibility

      the mid 2009.

      Please send me any data on this procedure.

      Thank you,

      Dear Sir, Watched your show 11-25-08 and my heart was overwhelmed by the generosity of the staff! I’ve sffered from depression since 1983 in which I over dosed on medication! Each year is a constant battle for me. I also had all my teeth removed around the age of 24 and in the late 80′s i was told by the dentist I had no ridge too hold dentures in! He sent me to Birmgham Ala. and a staff of specilists was shocked at my age how my gums were! They took bone marrow out of my hip and put it in the ridge and I had to wait 6 weeks and go to surgeon in Dothan Al. He put 2 posts in my ridge, bottom gum. Then 6 weeks later I went back and he didn’t have them in crrect position so he had to do surgery again by putting too more posts in! This lasts for awhile and for the past 10 years my bottom denter does’nt stay in proper!Ive battleed with weight all my adult years one diet after another so I feel so ugly when I go out in public! I cry a lot on all ds of medications and my husband feels I dont try hard enough!My hair in front is falling out and that so dicouraging.I had to have both my knees replaced last 11-19-08 and the day I got out of the hospitel my sister diied it was so hard for me ! I have never had dental insurance so I can’t afford going to specialist.s for my mouth. I had to quit my job of driving a school bus my nerves is so bad!I’ve been battling Fibromagla for about 10 years , I try so hard to be more positive and I have so much trouble sleeping at night and my strenght just’s isn’t there sometime. My 38 year old son is HIV positive since 1995 my hert just hurt’s from that!I just want to close myself from the world when it comes to going to doctor’s because of the doctor’s! Can’t keep my bottom denter in for quite awhile now.I just take one day at a time ‘I just turn 61 and feel so unattractive! But theres so many humans who have life harder , I’ve been a caregiver to so many older people and now they pasts on! I still try to help anyone if I can. I wish I had the battles I feel so bad about uncontrol but every thing in our world the state it’s in is scary to me.my teeth and the weight battle also hair thinning is so hard for me! My 38 year old son may need me any time so each day I try to fine the strength to make it! Sinceerely , Rachel Baxter 850-569-5708

      Hello,

      I have recently started watching ‘the doctors’.
      I love it and feel it is very informative.
      Today 12.26.08, I watched the segment about the young boy who is addicted to video games. I must be bluntly honest here, as a mother of 2 boys and ask a question. Why is no one dealing with the real problem. Problem, I’m sorry to say, is [...] the mother, whom I sure loves her son, is not parenting well. How about just taking disconnecting the video game. How about trying ‘working for’ 1 hour a day playing. Who is the parent, who is in charge. Is the young boy doing homework, chores, etc. Again, doing responsibilities BEFORE games. Limiting the amount of time spent playing games. Setting rules. Why was none of that addressed. The alternative was the WII games, which gets the boy to be more active, yes, that was good. But again, addressing the real problem, his addiction to these games. I am not saying I have all the ‘parenting’ answers. I did have the same problem with one son many years ago, and tried numerous things, till finally, when he wasn’t home, I just took the game he was addicted to and hid it. Well he went thru a certain withdrawal, but got over it. Sometimes as loving parents we have to incorporate an ‘extreme.’ I guess I just felt that even though the WII was an improvement in getting the boy up and moving, those involved still were not dealing with the real problem.

      I had several episodes for about 2 yrs. now and on 3/23 of this year I felt one coming on and this time I passed out and hit the counter with the back of my head. I was taken to the er room where all the xray showed was a big bump on my head so they told me to go to a neuroligist. So I went to see one, has an MRI, an EKG and an EEG done. Th eeg showed that I had at one time had a seizure on the left side of my brain. The dr. gave me Levetiracetam 500 mg to prevent any more seizures. Can’t anything be done about these and what causes them?

      When I would have these episodes it felt like everything was closing in on me, they only happen at work and when I’m standing still. Can you explain this to me? Also the medication is causing me to become dizzy. At first I took 1 in the morning for 3 days, then for 3 days I took one in the morning and one at night. Now I am up to 2 in the morning and 2 at bedtime. I am on
      medical leave until the first of May which by then I will be over the dizzy effect that these pills give me. This is a continuation of the first question.
