There was just released a letter from Hillary Clinton’s doctor that basically said ~”little bit of pneumonia and some drugs”… Leaving aside the question of just what IS a non-contagious bacterial pneumonia (and how one gets it without it being contagious) the thing that caught my attention was a little item that sure looks innocuous. A vitamin. B-12
I happen to be familiar with this one since it only comes from animal food products in the typical diet (and ultimately only from bacteria, often in the gut of animals) and with several family and friends who are Vegan and / or Vegetarian, well, it’s an issue they must watch. Last time I looked Hillary was not known to be a Vegan… Perhaps I missed it, though…
Now if you look up Vit B-12, it has several interesting properties. Two of them pertain to madam Hillary. First, it helps to slow or prevent brain shrinkage and decay. Having had some brain damage (enough that she can’t seem to remember anything from prior to the concussion and brain clot…) it could be related to that. The other is a little thing I learned working in the Hospital…
Hillary’s medical report said B-12 “as needed”. That’s pretty vague and tends to indicate a recurrent but irregular issue.
High vitamin B12 level in elderly individuals may protect against brain atrophy or shrinkage associated with Alzheimer’s disease and impaired cognitive function.
So maybe it’s being given to help “protect against brain atrophy or shrinkage” or maybe for “impaired cognitive function”.
Then again, maybe she is having chronic / episodic deficiency in her B-12 status for other reasons. One in particular:
Now most causes of B-12 deficiency (other than Vegan diet without care) tend to be dramatic metabolic issues, like not absorbing it causing pernicious anemia. That ought to have been seen some time ago, and also ought not be ‘as needed’ but persistent.
What “bad things” happen with B-12 deficiency? Bold mine:
Signs and symptoms
Vitamin B12 deficiency can lead to vitamin B12 deficiency anemia and neurologic dysfunction. A mild deficiency may not cause any discernible symptoms, but as the deficiency becomes more significant symptoms of anemia may result, such as weakness, fatigue, light-headedness, rapid heartbeat, rapid breathing and pale color to the skin. It may also cause easy bruising or bleeding, including bleeding gums. GI side effects including sore tongue, stomach upset, weight loss, and diarrhea or constipation. If the deficiency is not corrected, nerve cell damage can result. If this happens, vitamin B12 deficiency may result in tingling or numbness to the fingers and toes, difficulty walking, mood changes, depression, memory loss, disorientation and, in severe cases, dementia.
The main syndrome of vitamin B12 deficiency is pernicious anemia. It is characterized by a triad of symptoms:
Anemia with bone marrow promegaloblastosis (megaloblastic anemia). This is due to the inhibition of DNA synthesis (specifically purines and thymidine)
Gastrointestinal symptoms: alteration in bowel motility, such as mild diarrhea or constipation, and loss of bladder or bowel control. These are thought to be due to defective DNA synthesis inhibiting replication in a site with a high turnover of cells. This may also be due to the autoimmune attack on the parietal cells of the stomach in pernicious anemia. There is an association with GAVE syndrome (commonly called watermelon stomach) and pernicious anemia.
Neurological symptoms: Sensory or motor deficiencies (absent reflexes, diminished vibration or soft touch sensation), subacute combined degeneration of spinal cord, seizures, or even symptoms of dementia and or other psychiatric symptoms may be present. The presence of peripheral sensory-motor symptoms or subacute combined degeneration of spinal cord strongly suggests the presence of a B12 deficiency instead of folate deficiency. Methylmalonic acid, if not properly handled by B12, remains in the myelin sheath, causing fragility. Dementia and depression have been associated with this deficiency as well, possibly from the under-production of methionine because of the inability to convert homocysteine into this product. Methionine is a necessary cofactor in the production of several neurotransmitters.
Each of those symptoms can occur either alone or along with others. The neurological complex, defined as myelosis funicularis, consists of the following symptoms:
Impaired perception of deep touch, pressure and vibration, loss of sense of touch, very annoying and persistent paresthesias
Ataxia of dorsal chord type
Decrease or loss of deep muscle-tendon reflexes
Pathological reflexes — Babinski, Rossolimo and others, also severe paresis
Vitamin B12 deficiency can cause severe and irreversible damage, especially to the brain and nervous system. These symptoms of neuronal damage may not reverse after correction of hematological abnormalities, and the chance of complete reversal decreases with the length of time the neurological symptoms have been present.
Not good things in a President. Things evident in Hillary at various times…
The one I notice of interest under ’causes’ was:
Malnutrition of alcoholism.
Now note that there is anecdotal evidence from people around her that Hillary drinks like a fish…
While working in the hospital, one Friday a Doctor and Nurse were going out on the town. They were to be back at work in a fairly short time and didn’t want to be drunk when they did. The solution? Dear Doctor gave them both a big shot of B-12. It helps to prevent getting drunk, he said. I remembered that.
So in my “drink someone under the table” kit, I have B-12 pills.
I’ve used it and it worked. You still can get drunk, but it leaves much faster.
IF you didn’t prep that way, a fat B-12 in the “morning after” kit works wonders.
I’ve “tested” that too, and it works.
Madam Hillary has several symptoms that some folks have speculated indicate Parkinson’s. IMHO, they also conform to alcoholism and B-12 deficiency. Tremor of the hands (and coping behaviour to hide it) is also know as “The DTs”. Stumble, trip, fall, pass out, well, not much need be said about those. “Fast” recovery? Perhaps a nice push of a bolus of B-12 along with an alcohol antagonist?
That exercise can be run right down the list of her history and symptoms.
Now season with a known neurological defect (that 6 months of ‘recovery’ from her brain thrombosis and apparently massive memory loss) and you have one heck of a mess. Alcohol usually interacts badly with neurological defects, too. It also is the case that high alcohol intake leads to dramatic dehydration, a known issue for Hillary.
So I’d speculate that the simplest explanation that accounts for all the known facts is this scenario:
Back in the early 2000s, late 1990s, Hillary was on one bender too many, went into significant B-12 deficiency, and started falling. We have the broken arm, then the concussion, then the brain clot, spread over several years. By the time this is over, we have an issue of neurological damage and poor status. So she takes 6 months of rehabilitation and is “good enough”. Perhaps with some minor seizure issues from the hemorrhage damage. Under stress, she ‘twigs out’ a bit (the balloon drop and similar events) and starts to ‘self medicate’ again with a bit of vodka in the water glass.
Then we get the return of the DTs some times, the stumble and fall, and finally the “too hot” passing out as she is stuffed into the van… After a quick saline and B-12 push along with some alcohol antagonist, Presto! Fine again…
Until the next episode.
Yes, all rampant speculation. But based on “just the facts” and requires no outside evidence not already observed. It is also economical in complexity (Occam is my friend ;-) and fits the known history and personality of the Clinton’s.
So that’s my Thesis Du Jour. While it could just as easily be the result of a brain clot and seizures, that doesn’t explain the B-12 “as needed”. Needed implies a real medical need. “As” implies it is sporadic and environmental driven. That tips me toward the “had too much again” diagnosis…
B12 Shots – $35
B12 shots give you energy
Our office is conveniently located near the Strip, behind Trump Tower
We use the best version of B12 – Methylcobalamin
We also have specials for locals!!
Many people in this country have low B12 levels. B12 is critical vitamin for metabolism and energy. One study from the US Department of Agriculture found that over 40% of people are in the “low normal” or “deficient” range. The people with the low values described themselves as “busy people with fast-paced lives.” Doesn’t that describe most people in Las Vegas?
At Hangover Heaven, we use the methylcobalamin version of B12, which is the absolute best version of B12, versus the cheaper version, which is the cyanocobalamin version. Most clinics use the “cyano” version because it is cheaper. But, it has to undergo two reactions before your body can use it. With the “methyl” version, it is immediately available to your body.
You can also try our “Super B Complex” shot, which as B vitamins 1, 3, 5, 6, 9, and 12! The Super B shot has the “methyl” version of B12 as well.
What does Vitamin B12 do?
1. Helps the body process carbs (this is how it helps with weight loss)
2. Helps the body make red blood cells (especially important for women)
3. Is a critical part of making ATP, which is the basic unit of energy for the body (like gasoline for your car)
4. Helps the body breakdown alcohol
Here is a video of Hangover Heaven treating a UFC fighter. B12 and other vitamins are very important for overall health and energy.
It isn’t like this is a secret…
