Debate 3 Analysis

At the debate, Hillary didn’t show a lot of obvious signs… until my wonderful research team found them in odd places. By time she got to the Al Smith dinner the next day, they were on display. Also, there are a few things that don’t make the cut…

  1. I decided to share this to help someone out there who is still held with Parkinson’s.
    My dad suffered from parkinson’s for 18 years and we traveled round the world from one hospital to another neurologist and spent thousands of dollars and even got scammed in this process of seeking a cure and the problem still persisted. He acted weird and aggressive and this was so scary. All thanks to Dr Lusanda who was able to use his herbal medicine to cure him permanently. He is one of the Honest men out there. If you want to contact him on how to get this herbal medicine or for info just reach him directly on drlusandaherbal@gmail.com or website on http://www.drlusandaherbal.com Thanks admin.

  3. Dr. Noel,
    Assuming Hillary does have Parkinson’s disease, and based on how long you believe she has had this; how long do you think she can actually hide the symptoms from the general public.

    I would assume at some point, drug or no drug, the disease becomes so advanced that it is impossible to hide.

    1. Very difficult to project, and I would have to defer to Movement Disorder specialists. But we know two things. First PD is pleomorphic. That is, it is highly variable. Second, her eye signs, as near as I can tell, came first on July 23. This identifies a progression of the disease. Also, her freezes first showed up early this year. These strongly suggest that she has put the second foot on the banana peel, and her difficulties will accelerate. Her almost complete absence from the campaign trail suggests she knows this.

  4. I am social worker with 50 years experience in the medical field. Specializing in psychiatric/neurological disorders. Many people (even MDs) are unaware of the tragedy of cognitive and emotional decline in neurological diseases. Executive function damage is usually the reason patients have to quit work. Memory problems, information processing deficits and poor judgment may accompany the motor issues. Emotional dyscontrol (explosive outbursts) is also common. This may not show on a CT scan, and certainly not on an X-ray. A Functional MRI is imperative, read by a radiologist and specialist-Parkinson’s neurologist in a clinic where those departments regularly work together at a major medical Center in the US. An MD who positively vets a patient with damage in the prefrontal lobes should be liable for this. Patient confidentiality does not enter in this situation, Testing by a neuropsychologist I believe is not as sufficient documentation as is an FMRI. This is too important to avoid definitive testing.

    1. According to a “Five-Year Follow-up of Bilateral Stimulation of the Subthalamic Nucleus in Advanced Parkinson’s Disease” published in the New England Journal of Medicine.

      The authors found that:

      “On-medication akinesia, speech, postural stability, and freezing of gait worsened between year 1 and year 5 (P<0.001 for all comparisons). At five years, the dose of dopaminergic treatment and the duration and severity of levodopa-induced dyskinesia were reduced,
      as compared with base line (P<0.001 for each comparison). The average scores for cognitive performance remained unchanged"

      They concluded:

      "Patients with advanced Parkinson's disease who were treated with bilateral stimulation of the subthalamic nucleus had marked improvements over five years in motor function while off medication and in dyskinesia while on medication. There was no control group, but worsening of akinesia, speech, postural stability, freezing of gait, and cognitive function between the first and the fifth year is consistent with the natural history of Parkinson's disease."

  5. Hello Dr,

    Thank you for this. It is all very enlightening.

    I have seen at least one picture along with speculation showing a round lesion on her tongue, and I wanted to ask you what that may be, if you have seen it.

    Then I read the previous comment and perhaps it’s just a sore spot from all those quick-dissolve tablets. 🙂

    In a previous video someone who I think said he was a doctor misquoted your speculation about what looked like a quick injection thing, saying diazepam instead apomorphine. I find that a weird thing for a doctor to mix up, unless diazepam has some special place in PD.

    If she really has this, it must be exposed. What would you or what might another doctor advise the other side if asked what is the most humane and ethical way to expose this along the campaign? Without talking about it, but using it as a strategy. I think that making a big deal about the press conferences and trying to get her to take those chances is good. They are going to be preparing her well for the debate, but as you said, PD can come any time. Perhaps by firing multiple questions at her lawyer style? 😉

    Kind regards.

    Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is a surgical procedure used to treat a variety of disabling neurological symptoms—most commonly the debilitating symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. DBS does not damage healthy brain tissue by destroying nerve cells. Instead the procedure blocks electrical signals from targeted areas in the brain, by using a surgically implanted, battery-operated medical device called a neurostimulator—similar to a heart pacemaker and approximately the size of a stopwatch—to deliver electrical stimulation to targeted areas in the brain that control movement, blocking the abnormal nerve signals that cause tremor and other symptoms.

    If the DBS lead is placed too near the nerve fibers of the oculomotor nucleus (the eye movement center in the brain) or there is swelling, the 3rd cranial nerve is activated resulting in diplopia (double vision) but which can be corrected with special (fresnel) lenses in the glasses until the symptoms resolve.

    The patient feels tired for 4 – 6 weeks while the body is recovering from the surgery. As the swelling subsides in the brain, the Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) will need to be adjusted, along with the medications, often over several months. It is usual for the DBS to be left switched off until the first post operative follow-up appointment.

    The only visible sign of hardware is a slight bulge in the chest where the neurostimulator lies. When the device is activated and calibrated, the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease promptly vanish. When it’s turned off, all symptoms return. Some patients nevertheless choose to stop the stimulation while they’re sleeping to preserve the implant’s batteries.

    From time to time, the wire connecting the implant can break or become dislodged, requiring a return visit to the operating room, if possible, otherwise medication will have to be increased.

    1. I’m well aware of DBS, having done anesthetic care for DBS placement. Initially, the outlook for DBS seemed very bright. Now some cautionary reports are coming in. Time will tell.

      1. Dear Dr Noel

        I agree “the video tells a different story”

        At 7:41 the reporters have their phones in the vicinity of Mrs Clinton.

        In “Evaluation of electromagnetic incompatibility concerns for deep brain stimulators” Kelly Dustin states that:

        “Deep brain stimulators (DBS) may be affected by electromagnetic interference (EMI)…The warning information on Medtronic’s Web site that is specific to the DBS device indicates that theft detectors and security screening devices may cause the stimulation to turn on or off and may cause some patients to experience a momentary increase in perceived stimulation…EMI with DBS does not appear to present an immediate safety issue even though it may cause device malfunction and a resulting temporary interruption in therapeutic benefit for persons who have the device…healthcare professionals who care for patients with DBS should routinely educate them about potential interactions and appropriate accommodations.”

    2. Cerebral venous sinus thrombosis is rare, with an estimated 3-4 cases per million annual incidence in adults, but has been reported as a significant complication in DBS surgery with an occurrence rate of 1 in 77 patients.

      In “Cerebral Venous Infarction: A Potentially Avoidable Complication of Deep Brain Stimulation Surgery” the authors report that:

      “Out of 500 DBS lead implantations (301 patients), four cases of symptomatic cerebral venous infarction were identified (0.8%/lead, 1.3%/patient). All four patients underwent DBS for treatment of Parkinson’s Disease (PD). Two of the patients underwent unilateral subthalamic nucleus (STN) DBS, and two underwent unilateral globus pallidus internus (GPi) DBS.”

  7. Dear Dr Noel

    As a UK doctor we have been receiving regular updates on Mrs Clinton health in our press such as “Is Hillary Clinton coughing up ‘green mucus’ in latest cough attack?”.

    I notice that the patient instructions for taking the orally disintegrating tablet (Parcopa) are:

    Keep the tablet in its blister pack until you are ready to take the medicine. Open the package and peel back the foil from the tablet blister. Do not push a tablet through the foil or you may damage the tablet.

    Using dry hands, remove the tablet and place it in your mouth. It will begin to dissolve right away.

    Do not swallow the tablet whole. Allow it to dissolve in your mouth without chewing.

    Swallow several times as the tablet dissolves.

    Parcopa contains a combination of carbidopa and levodopa
    25 mg / 100mg tablets are yellow and 10mg / 100mg tablets are blue.

  8. Mr Ted, you need to be careful, Clinton’s have killed many people. I request you to hide. You are like Trump in some sense. You have balls, rest of doctors dont. Until the election is over, never stay in the places, that is registered as your home address. I believe eventually you will become a hero. You should open your twitter account quickly, to share your findings. That way millions can read your finding quickly.
    Looking forward to see you in Sean Hannity show. Rest of the news channels hate you. That is ok.
