Watch this special message from Andrew Scher, co-executive producer of The Doctors!
Andrew, I come to you as a mother with a young adult that was diagnosed with Prader-Willi Syndrome before the age of five. I am speaking for ALL the families that are battling and have battled this syndrome. I have posted this on produce your Idea and other families will be commenting on this. We need the Doctors show help us raise awareness of this syndrome so we can get help for these families/patients! I beg you to look into this and I pray God will move you and your affliliates to run this production.

I am writing in regards to the subject Hyperhydrosis of the feet. My son has this problem that is very severe. He has been to a number of doctors and still can seem to fine a treatment.
He is 28.
The smell is so bad that he places his socks in a cedar box each day to hold them until they can be washed. He changes his sock several times a day.
The skin of the bottom of his feet are feelin off in layers.
His feet are so tender at times he is unable to walk on them.
He was told that there was a doctor in San Antonio that could do something with the nerves around the spinal cord ??? Need more information -
But due to the inusurance that he has it will not let me even try this option.
This is a very serious situation - HE is afraid it going to get to the point that he can't walk.
Can the doctors PLEASE HELP !!!
Abortion should be the one produced on your show. I used to be pro choice and now feel a women's physical and emotinal well-being become important. Young women and men will become more aware if they saw what happens to a baby once aborted and the emotional changes a woan goes through thoughout life not knowing why she cries all the time, why she uses drugs, why she feels guilty. The woman has to learn to forgive herself and ask God or a person's higher being to forgive them also. Please air this topic on your show. I have 150 points and others have brought the subject up again after me.
Please vote for Congenital Heart Disease, we need more awareness. The struggle doesn't end, it is a life long defect. We are never fixed, we are only repaired, and most of the time it is just a temporary repair...... We need to let everyone know that there is more to heart disease than "aquired heart disease" Babies are born everyday with congenital heart disease, some of them are lucky to make it to their first birthday let alone adulthood. When people find out I have had 3 open heart surgeries (which aren't the last of them), they say "you are so young" meaning, most people automatically think of heart attacks and aquired heart disease, never thinking of congenital heart disease. Please help!!! VOTE, VOTE, VOTE for mare awareness on CHD!!!!
Thank you for having a program like this one. I have always found it to be very interesting . Once again Thank you--------------
I did not know what category to put cervical atlas chiropractor under so i put it under alternative medicine meaning alternative to surgery.
Are you really being held hostage?
I had submitted information about my phobia/alergic reaction to the aroma of coffee and what it does to me. DId you get that information? I am really being held hostage, so even if it cannot be aired soon, could you please give me some feedback as to what you think is going on? Thanks.
At the ripe age of 24 I had to get ALLmy top teeth pulled out and I wear an upper denture. I currently only have 8 1/2 teeth on the bottom. The half is because it is broke off at the gums and you can barely see it. It had gotten infected about 1 month ago and I looked like a retarded cartoon character with my chin wider than my forehead. The reason my teeth are so bad is not from neglect, as I do brush them a minimum of twice a day and have for years. It is actually because of a medication I had taken as a child for epelepsi, called Phenobarbitol. I started taking the medication at such a young age that I never grew enamal on my teeth. Therefore, the outcome is my teeth turning black, breaking off, causing pain, low self esteem, and embarassment! The price of dental care is so costly and as a mom, I sacrifice. Also being a family of four it is not something that is affordable. I also have a big fear of the numbing shot and need to be put to sleep when I get my teeth worked on. I cant remember the last time I ate nuts, corn on the cob, or a granola bar. I had even ate a salad with soft bacon bits in it and the bacon had broken my tooth. It also happened with eating a brownie. I would love to have my teeth done but can not afford it. I would love to have help being able to get implants as I am also told that my bottom gums are to small and will not be able to wear a lower denture. Now at the age of 32, I know I will not be able to put it off much longer. Everyone else that goes through dental issues and dental pain, I feel for you in every way. If I was wealthy, I would love to be able to see peolpe that have dental issues and pay for them to get fixed. Good luck to all of you out there dealing withh this horrible issue. If you might be able and willing to help me out, please do. I did see that in the new season you are going to be doing seeth and I assume implants but it never hurts to ask. Thanks for your time and consideration.
OCTOBER IS DOMESTIC AWARENESS MONTH
I offered a show Idea on this Topic too.
I volunteer at a SHELTER in Marion, Ohio called TURNING POINT pretty cool since Dr Phil's blog is also named this.
The shelter is a safe haven in Beautiful country setting and has some backing from THE UNITED WAY but actually lost some $$ as everyone has felt the sqeeze this year Mr. S.
Anyway for real I am not looking for ANY CAMEARA time on this place it is the Directors and Therapists and the true staff members that save the woman and children who often have no money and no place to turn.
TURNING POINT also goes to court and helps these woman rebuild there lives one day at a time.
They are doing an OUTREACH IN OCTOBER on local college campus In Delaware, Ohio

Sept is Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month. I agree with others that this would be a great idea to share. As a grandmother that lost a grandchild to Rhabdomyosacroma, I know it was hard for my daughter to find a lot of help. please include support groups and treatment options as well as stories. Thank You so much!
N.B.. Wish there was an edit, Andrew Scher, because those who wrote in for me in USA if see this will wonder why I didn't mention them too... THANKS TO ALL (everyone & everywhere) who wrote in for me and y'all at THE DOCTORS for the opportunity to at least have a chance for an "Ultimate Makeover." Hope okay to mention and, if not, my apologies. Oh, if anything I need to change to be reconsidered please let me know. Thank you. SEA
Major Cool Andrew Scher! SO excited! I wish I'd seen this earlier tonight. As Governor of California says, "I'll be back." Oh, they say it never hurts to ask. I sure could use an "Ultimate Makeover" from head to toe & inside & out. I trust THE DOCTORS and their colleagues. Lots of people wrote in for me twice and I don't want to impose to ask again. Also, former Green Beret Medic Lynn, for over a year here has heard me ask when phone rings "Is that THE DOCTORS or Dr. Phil Show." See, 1st applied on Dr. Phil Show when THE DOCTORS premiered then on THE DOCTORS when I wasn't chosen for 1st "Ultimate Makeover". Second time people wrote in from Canada to Australia and in-between. I feel like I let them down not being chosen. I'm happy for everyone chosen for "Ultimate Makeovers" besides me yet would like to FINALLY be chosen too, please. Thank you. Ms. Stephenson
