02/21/2011: Julie Cooper from Atlanta, Ga: "Peutz Jeghers syndrome: What can you recommend to rid my body of this terrible disease? I have hyperpigmentation spots on my lips and mouth and doctors say that its nothing to worry about. Well I started doing research and find that I have nearly 70% of the symptoms except I have no stomach problems (that I am aware of) and no pain. I know positive thinking is one thing but should I use the same cures for cancer or something else?"
