Friends of Hillary Say She Has Parkinson’s Disease

Jerome R. Corsi of WND reports that sources close to the candidate have confirmed that she has stage three (of five) Parkinson’s Disease. Read the whole story at:

  1. Hello again Doctor,
    One more observation from HRC’s recent interview with A. Cooper which you perhaps can use or not in your public appearances:
    whatever lung disease she has, if any, her pulmonary function seems great: she speaks in long sentences with very long between breaths.


  2. Hello again,
    I have another point. Maybe it’s unimportant but, according to Dr. Bardack, the CT of HRC’s lungs showed a pneumonia in the MIDDLE LOBE of the right lung which, she says, was non-contagious. I assume that, at least, parts of her testimony is true. But is a “non-contagious” middle lobe infiltrate not, almost by definition, evidence of aspiration, which makes dysphagia all the more probable?


  3. “Her thyroid blood tests are within normal limits. Of note, she has remained stable for many
    years on Armor thyroid to treat her hypothyroidism (a low T3 level).”

    Thyroid hormone level is associated with motor symptoms in de novo Parkinson’s disease

    “So the obvious question, does thyroid hormone supplementation (T4, T3 or in any combination) help those with Parkinson’s disease?”

    Refering to this paper:

  4. Hello Dr. Noel,

    This comment is speculative, but still, I would like to give vent to my discomfort about your interpretation of the 9/11 event.
    You say, that HRC went to the 9/11 celebration and that during the event her blood level of Levodopa fell so much, that she was forced to leave and soon after developed a severe freeze episode.
    Now, if she really has a longstanding PD, being a highly intelligent person, she must have learned how to dose her Levodopa in order to be in optimal shape at crucial moments, at the very least. I find it improbable that she would remember to take her blue lenses on and forget to take enough Levodopa before leaving her ambulance. One would rather expect her to overdose a little before the event and take the blue lenses as protection against dyskinesia.
    (I have not found any evidence of significant interaction of Levodopa with Levofloxacin – the only new drug she is on, if true, but there is a possibility her that blood T½ of levodopa is shortened while on Levofloxacin. Just an idea.)

    The work you are doing is “medical detective ” work and so the search for subtle, soft, signs is great. However, even a number of soft signs and observations of family members of PD patients are weaker than one or two strong, unequivocal symptoms. And I think you will agree that we haven’t as yet seen in HRC a classic tremor, bradykinesia, rigidity.

    Families of patients with different problems (like PD and NPH) have looked at the same recording of HRC “freeze” and said: “wow, this is just like my grandma”. Such a “deja vus” are not fool proof.

    J.v. Kopenhagen

    1. Please note how I set it up. That was clearly defined in the post as an hypothetical scenario which fits the evidence. It wasn’t a statement of established fact. As for understanding how to dose levodopa, sorry. There are so many things that affect its absorption and distribution (pharmacokinetics) and effect (pharmacodynamics) that even the best managed patients have increasing difficulty with dosing as the disease progresses.

  5. Stage 3? Bologna. Look at the symptoms for that stage.

    However, on Hillary’s latest medical report:


    “In January of 2016, Mrs. Clinton developed symptoms of sinusitis and an ear
    infection, which was treated with antibiotics and steroids. Over the ensuing few
    weeks, she noted progressive pain in her left ear despite treatment, and
    subsequently was evaluated by her ENT physician. This evaluation confirmed a
    sinus and ear infection, with increased fluid in her left ear. To help alleviate her
    symptoms, a myringotomy tube was placed in her left ear in January of 2016.”

    Parkinson’s Movement – Problems with ears

    Q: I’m having problems with my ears “closing up”, like I am in an airplane. Neurologist says it is allergies, but it comes and goes too quickly to be allergies. Anyone have the same problem?

    A: According to MD’s, adults are not suppose to have ear infections, I get them all of the time. The last one took weeks to get rid of with both oral and topical antibiotics and was pretty much completely closed. I do have allergies and asthma, but have had more infections in the time period I have been diagnosed with PD.

    Parkinson’s TMJ (trigeminal nerve) Connection – Ear Infections

    Though medical doctors know that the trigeminal nerve is directly involved with all ear functions, when confronted with ear dysfunction, they rarely consider jaw malalignment (which has a profound effect on the trigeminal nerve).

    The trigeminal nerve effects the ear primarily in three ways:

    1. Trigeminal nerve ennervates the tensor veli palitini muscle which opens and closes the Eustachian tube. Hypertonicity within the trigeminal nerve can lead to dysfunction of the muscle, causing ear infections, plugged ears, or difficulty clearing ears with change in altitude.

    Parkinson’s TMJ (trigeminal nerve) Connection – Sinus Infections

    The autonomic nerves that go to the sinuses travel with the trigeminal nerve and exchange a lot of information with each other. So when the bite is off and the trigeminal nerve is hypertonic, it alters the quantity, quality, and viscosity of nasal secretions. Trigeminal disturbance also impacts immune function, thus making the sinuses vulnerable to infection.

    “The results of the CT scan revealed a small right middle lobe pneumonia; her coronary calcium score was again zero. She was treated with antibiotics for pneumonia and advised to rest. This was a mild non-contagious bacterial pneumonia.”

    Aspiration Pneumonitis and Pneumonia

    Aspiration of bacteria from oral and pharyngeal areas causes (bacterial) aspiration pneumonia.

    Swallowing and Parkinson’s Disease

    Swallowing difficulty can occur at any stage of Parkinson’s disease (PD). Evaluation and treatment of swallowing disorders are performed by a speech language pathologist.

    Signs and symptoms can range from mild to severe and may include: difficulty swallowing certain foods or liquids, coughing or throat clearing during or after eating/drinking, and feeling as if food is getting stuck. As the disease progresses, swallowing can become severely compromised and food/liquid can get into the lungs, causing aspiration pneumonia.

    Aspiration pneumonia is the leading cause of death in PD.

    Parkinson’s disease and chronic cough

    (Note: I had to use the Google cache to read this because the direct link from the search did not work)

    My Dad has Parkinson’s disease and dementia associated with it. He has developed a chronic cough for several months now and it is getting worse. Is this cough related to the Parkinson’s and how can we best treat it? We’ve seemed to have tried everything – antihistamines, antibiotics, nasal spray, acid reflux meds, cough meds, etc. Nothing has worked.

    DUKE MEDICINE Mark A Stacy, MD responded:

    The cough may be from aspiration, or breathing saliva into his lungs while he is sleeping. This, usually slightly acidic solution can cause irritation of the bronchial (breathing) tubes, and the natural reflex is a cough. I would suggest a swallowing study to see if he is aspirating, and perhaps a sleep study to see if there are other issues. His neurologist can order both of these studies.

    “Her vital signs showed blood pressure of 100/70”

    Low blood pressure and Parkinson’s

    Some people with Parkinson’s may have problems with low blood pressure (also called hypotension). It can be a symptom of Parkinson’s or it can be a side effect of the drugs used to treat the condition.

    A normal blood pressure reading is one between 90/60 and 140/90. Any readings outside
    of this range are classed as low or high.

    As long as you are not experiencing symptoms of low blood pressure, there is no need for concern. Most doctors consider chronically low blood pressure dangerous only if it causes noticeable signs and symptoms, such as:

    Dizziness or lightheadedness
    Fainting (called syncope)

    Lower blood pressure can also be a side effect of Coumadin.

    Gait and Balance Disorders in Older Adults

    Gait and balance disorders are among the most common causes of falls in older adults and often lead to injury, disability, loss of independence, and limited quality of life. Gait and balance disorders are usually multifactorial in origin and require a comprehensive assessment to determine contributing factors and targeted interventions. **Most changes in gait that occur in older adults are related to underlying medical conditions, particularly as conditions increase in severity, and should not be viewed as merely an inevitable consequence of aging.**

    None of the required tests for Parkinson’s disease have been done according to her latest medical report.

    How is Parkinson’s disease diagnosed?

    There is no objective test (such as a blood test, brain scan or EEG) to make a definitive diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease. Instead, a doctor takes a careful medical history and performs a thorough neurological examination, looking in particular for two or more of the cardinal signs to be present. Frequently, the doctor will also look for responsiveness to Parkinson’s disease medications as further evidence that Parkinson’s is the correct diagnosis. (However, starting on medication right away can limit your ability to participate in clinical trials that urgently need newly-diagnosed Parkinson’s patients.)

    In 2011, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved a specialized imaging technique called DaTscan that allows doctors to capture detailed pictures of the dopamine system in your brain. It is the first FDA-approved diagnostic imaging technique for the assessment of movement disorders such as Parkinson’s disease. DaTscan alone can’t diagnose Parkinson’s disease by itself, but it can help confirm a physician’s clinical diagnosis — something that has never been possible before.

    Unfortunately, because there is no definitive test for Parkinson’s disease, and because Parkinson’s disease symptoms are similar to those of other neurological conditions, the misdiagnosis rate remains significant. It is worthwhile to consider a second opinion, and to reach out to a neurologist with specific expertise in movement disorders.

    1. it is very rare for a 68 year old lady to have grommets inserted for middle ear fluid. I doubt if an average ENT surgeon would do one in a year. Her blood pressure is actually very low for a 68 year old. This is evidence of Parkinson s and the treatment she is receiving for her Parkinsons.
      Aspiration pneumonia usually occurs in the right middle lobe.

      1. I had forgotten about the RML as the prime target for aspiration… Thanks.
        BP is indeed low, but also think about O2Sat. Without any problems it would be rare to have a person of her age have an O2Sat above 97. 99 borders on impossible.

  7. I post the following for your general information:

    Here is the latest on Hillary’s medical “Handler:”

    [The quotes are from the website below.]

    “A former Secret Service agent has confirmed the identity of Hillary Clinton’s mysterious ‘medical handler’ as US Secret Service Agent Todd Madison.

    The retired Secret Service agent, who spent 20 years protecting America’s top leaders including the Clintons, confirmed by telephone Wednesday that the stocky, African-American man highlighted by various media outlets, was a man he worked with previously on assignment.”

    The retired agent described SS Agent Todd Madison as a “Boss;” he is a “true believer;” he gets “more involved” in his assignments than other agents. This agent described Madison as Hillary’s “Detail Leader.”

    Secret Service spokeswoman Nicole Mainor confirmed that Todd Madison is Hillary’s “Detail Leader.” She said that the object that Madison was carrying was not a Diazepam syringe but rather a small flashlight.

    Bloggers have been pursuing the identity of Hillary’s “Handler” for several months now. It is quite possible that the persistence of these bloggers finally smoked out a retired Secret Service agent, who felt compelled to “set the record straight.” As followers of American Thinker know, it was suspected that Hillary’s “Handler” was the Nigerian-American physician, Oladotun Okunola; in light of the latest revelations, Dr. Okunola is not Hillary’s “Handler.”

  8. Below are the first two paragraphs of Dr. Lisa Bardack’s update on Hillary’s health. The update is two pages long and is at the website below. I have a full copy in case it is taken down and you need it. The letter is on Care Mount Medical Center Stationery.

    September 14, 2016

    This letter is a summary update on Hillary Rodham Clinton’s health since the release of my previous medical statement in July 2015.

    Mrs. Clinton has been seen by me regularly this year for routine care. She has had Recurrent blood testing for Coumadin dosing and adjustments. Her blood levels have been relatively stable. She also has had several allergy flares over the past year, which has been a typical pattern for most of her life. In consultation with her allergist, she responded well to her medication adjustments.

    1. Read, very carefully, Lisa Bardack’s latest “Hillary Clinton is fine” letter. Note, in particular, two statements. First: “Mrs. Clinton’s current medications include Armor Thyroid, Coumadin dosed as directed, Levaquin (for a total ten days), Clarinex, as well as B12 as needed.” The key word here is “include”. In other words, this is not a list of ALL of her medications. Second: “My overall impression is that Mrs. Clinton has remained healthy and has not developed new medical conditions this year other than a sinus and ear infection and her recently diagnosed pneumonia.” The key phrase here is “new medical conditions”. In other words, the letter does not explicitly address previously diagnosed medical conditions. It most definitely 1) leaves open and 2) certainly does not in any way deny the possibility of a prior diagnosis of and of ongoing treatment for Parkinson’s Disease.

      1. indeed there is a difference between ” include ” and ” comprise ” . The report also slips in the clear CT of the brain implying for the lay public that she hasn’t got Parkinson’s. However neither an MRI or a CT will show whether the patient has Parkinsons.

        1. Two items: First, a CT of the brain will not diagnose PD.
          Second, if she has bad sinuses (which are also listed in the letter), a CT of the sinuses is very ordinary, and you can’t do a CT of the sinuses without including the brain.

  9. I am posting the following just in case you didn’t read all of the comments to Thomas Lifson’s 9-14-2016 posting of your video-analysis of Hillary’s 9/11 medical event. It appears to be a well-thought-out critique that deserves your attention.

    Swampcat • 9 minutes ago [6:38 pm on Wednesday, Sept. 14. 2016]

    This post is addressed to you, Dr. Noel:

    Hey Doc, you make sense about the “on-off” effect of sinemet. But she has no resting tremor during the “off” episodes.

    It also makes sense that another dose of sinemet could get her mobility back again (especially since sinemet has peak plasma around 60-90 minutes).

    But I still wonder about the lack of resting tremor, and I have not seen any evidence of rigidity or bradykinesia in her upper extremities.

    Also the man in the video you posted is exhibiting signs of tardive dyskinesia, not resting tremor, which of course could result from use of long term or high doses of sinemet (as well as antipsychotic medications).

    So I wonder if she has been evaluated for NPH? [Does he mean Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus?] As you know NPH is often misdiagnosed as either Parkinson’s or Alzheimer’s. If she had mobility problems they could not diagnose, they may have given her sinemet to help, even though she may not have Parkinson’s Disease.

    The mobility issues with NPH are similar to Parkinson’s disease effects on the lower extremities, although these patients have increased urinary output, and eventually develop dementia and do not have resting tremor or upper mobility problems.

    Some of her recent issues have revealed all of these symptoms (the long bathroom break at the debate with Bernie and the inability to remember events, such as security briefings).

    Also, as I’m sure you know, NPH is highly correlated with brain trauma such as a blunt force injury (falling), brain surgery, or subdural hematoma. Just a thought.

    Since you are an MD, and I am not a clinician, I posit this for your consideration.

    Also, my late father suffered from NPH and near the end his mobility looked exactly like I observed in the video of Hillary on 9/11 that we have all seen so many times.

    When the neurologists couldn’t diagnose my Father’s condition they gave him sinemet, which made his condition worse over time, even though he eventually was correctly diagnosed and had a shunt installed.

    I am not completely basing my observations on my father’s condition, as I am also educated in the mechanisms of action of medications and the uses thereof.

    Again, it is just a thought since she has suffered numerous brain injuries over the years.

    P.S….My father had a subdural hematoma about 2-3 years before he developed NPH. When I first saw him after he became symptomatic, I told him he looked like he had Parkinson’s…..kyphotic posture, shuffling gait, masked facies….- but no resting tremor. He also had increased urinary frequency and over time began to lose cognitive function. It took 2 years to get the correct diagnosis. Any of you who are not familiar with NPH can Google Bob Fowler and go from there to the NPH support sites.

    1. Neither CT or MRI will demonstrate Parkinson’s . I see in the report they mention a normal CT of the brain….this will reassure the non medic but it is irrelevant .” The best way to test for Parkinsons disease is to conduct a systemic neurological examination that includes tests to gauge a patients reflexes, muscle strength, coordination, balance, gait, and overall movement ” I see no record of a neurological exam in Hillary s doctor’s report.
      Several neurological conditions often manifest like Parkinsons.

    2. The blue lenses video was a major movement disorder, and blue lenses have been shown to assist in many such disorders. PD boards have a number of testimonials for PD. They also note seizure disorders may be helped. Even if the specific patient had a different major movement disorder, the point is still valid because of the similar effect in PD.


    Bill Clinton substituted for Hillary in Nevada on Wednesday, Sept. 14. He stated that Hillary has the “flu.” Below is the quote:

    “She’s feeling great, and I think she’ll be back out there tomorrow,” Clinton said of his wife, who plans to campaign Thursday in North Carolina. “It’s a crazy time we live in, you know, when people think there’s something unusual about getting the flu. Last time I checked, millions of people were getting it every year.”

    Additionally, Bill Clinton does not look good in the photo at the Washington Post website above.

    Gateway Pundit is carrying the story and has video of this statement:

  11. Here is a pertinent article at

    By Charlotte Libov, Sept. 9, 2016

    When Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State, she had her staff conduct research on Provigil, a drug used to treat sleepiness and off-label for Parkinson’s disease, according to a declassified State Department email released by WikiLeaks.

    The drug — Provigil — is a controlled substance approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of narcolepsy and other conditions that cause daytime sleepiness.

  12. Cut and Paste !
    Hillary ‘s letter from her doctor confirming that she is ” fit to serve ” contains a cut and paste from the exam she allegedly had in March 2015. If you were a physician to such an important person wouldn’t you take time to record some more recent basic observations ?
    The cholesterol values are the same as March 2015. The diastolic blood pressure is the only one that differs and that is by 5 mmhg. These medical notes are laughable. oh and the Oxygen saturation of 99 % is also hard to believe !

  13. While I find all the arguments for the case of PD very reasonable, I think I have to debunk the ‘squeezing finger test’ hypothesis.
    As we can see in this video
    From 0:22 to 0:24 (with the still photo that was shared at around 0:23), this is merely an optical illusion where Hillary and the other person move their hands one before the other.
    Maybe worth commenting on this too, in order to guarantee a neutral position ?

    1. This is a very good point, brab. Many good people on the Net ran with that erroneous idea about the “squeeze test”: in full daylight, in the middle of all the people do a neuro evaluation – no.

  14. Have you read this article from The Daily Presser dated August 8, 2016.

    Reference was made to this article on the American Thinker today, Sept. 14. Reference is also made to a Twitter post that is no longer available; it contained comments by Martin Shkreli. Here is the post from American Thinker:

    jmsvoice • an hour ago

    A little over a month ago, back when speculation into her health conditions were still described by the mainstream media as “right wing conspiracy theories” before even WaPo was forced to admit that was wrong after video emerged of her disasterous public seizure at Ground Zero, despite showing up wearing Zeiss Z1 anti-seizure glasses, expert pharmaceutical executive Martin Shkreli, said footage of Hillary Clinton exhibiting bizarre behavior is proof that the presidential candidate is suffering from Parkinson’s disease.

    Citing his “15 year background in drug discovery and pharmaceuticals,” Shkreli asserts that the videos of Hillary’s strange facial movements and her difficulties with walking are “pretty unmistakable signs of Parkinson’s disease.”

    Explaining that a stroke or a concussion wouldn’t explain the symptoms, Shkreli says that Hillary’s walking difficulties are a “cardinal symptom of Parkinson’s disease” and what is known as “freezing gait”. Shkreli adds that he helped develop a drug to treat the problem.

    Hillary’s “on-off episodes” are a result of dopamine depletion, according to Shkreli, which is impacting Hillary’s movement.

    “We’ve all seen the videos of her kind of making these perplexed facial movements,” says Shkreli, noting that Hillary’s over-reaction to balloons at the DNC was “unusual” because it betrayed an “inability to control her facial movements”.

    However, Hillary’s seizure-like behavior in response to reporters asking questions in another clip was even more odd because she “made this involuntary movement for about ten seconds which was truly unusual,” states Shkreli, identifying the condition as a form of Parkinson’s-induced dyskinesia.

    “This ia classic symptom….if you showed someone that symptom and said ‘name the disorder’ it’s not a seizure….that is simply involuntary movement, it’s PD-LID, no doubt about it in my mind,” adds Shkreli, concluding that when matched with Hillary’s “freezing gait,” it “explains everything.”

    Shkreli emphasizes the fact the he is non-partisan and has given more money to Democrats than Republicans.

    Twitter users are now calling for Hillary to be given a mental and physical health screening under the hashtag #Hillary’sHealth.

    1. Is it possible that Hillary Clinton’s severe concussion and double vision in 12-2012 was not caused by a fall from a podium or a fall in her kitchen but, rather, a near-fatal plane crash in Iran in 12-2012?
