Buffy has been suffering from a genetic disorder that affects the enamel on her teeth since she was 8 years old.
The condition, called amelogenesis imperfecta, causes her teeth to crack and chip easily. She says she has to eat soft foods like a toddler, can’t brush her teeth with a normal toothbrush and is constantly taking pain medication.
“The hardest part about all of this is I’m ashamed to be out in public,” Buffy says. “I don’t go to a lot of my kids’ events because I don’t want to embarrass my children.”
Watch as The Doctors surprise Buffy with a complete smile makeover.
After spending a year researching medicinal marijuana, neurosurgeon and CNN’s chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta changed his stance on the drug. The former critic came out in support of using cannabis to treat some medical conditions in his documentary Weed.
Dr. Gupta tells The Doctors he, “realized there were legitimate patients out there … that not only get relief from medical marijuana, but they get relief when nothing else worked.”
He admits that marijuana use has potential concerns. “But the trade-off shouldn’t be that people can’t get treatment that could help them,” he says.
Beverly Hills mom Cheryl started using marijuana after she found that the anti-anxiety medicines and anti-depressants she’d been prescribed made her feel like “a zombie.”
“I lost my desire to get out of bed, and the quality of life for my children was horrible,” she says. "Then, I tried cannabis and within two puffs ... I was smiling and laughing for the first time in almost a year.”
Cheryl and her daughter, Aimee, started the Beverly Hills Cannabis Club for moms. They throw dinner parties and serve food infused with cannabis.
“I really empower women to come out of the closet and speak openly about their cannabis use, and quite frankly, how it makes them better moms,” Cheryl says.
Married couple Rebecca and Chris, who are featured on Discovery Fit & Health’s series Secret Sex Lives: Swingers, say partcipating in swingers parties has improved their relationship.
“If we can talk freely about sex, we can talk freely about anything. It makes the communication and trust healthier in our relationship,” Rebecca says.
The Doctors warn that the two need to protect themselves against sexually transmitted diseases and ask other sex partners if they’ve been tested.
Some bars in New Jersey have been accused of serving unsuspecting patrons rubbing alcohol with food coloring instead of whiskey, in an effort to cut down on costs.
The Doctors explain that rubbing alcohol, or isopropyl alcohol, is 91 percent alcohol, as opposed to most liquor, which is 40 percent alcohol. Dr. Travis warns that drinking too much isopropyl alcohol could cause nausea, vomiting and result in a coma.
Pediatrician Dr. Jim Sears says it could especially be dangerous in a bar where people are drinking shots. “You just pour it down; you don’t even taste it,” he says.
“Be a little bit suspicious. If it doesn’t smell like the drink you ordered, send it back, or go somewhere else or report the place,” Dr. Travis says.
The Doctors discuss reports of people being engulfed in flames after applying spray sunscreen and then getting too close to a grill.
The Doctors advise if you use aerosol sunscreen, make sure it has dried completely and you can no longer smell the alcohol before going near a flame.
