Did Hillary Clinton really faint from “dehydration” or does she have a chronic neurological condition?

September 12, 2016- by Steven E. Greer, MD

Once again, the Hillary Clinton campaign is on defense after another health scare from their candidate. This time, she left the 9/11 ceremonies at Ground Zero early, only to collapse before the team of Secret Service agents could literally drag her into the car.

The initial excuse delivered by her handlers was that she was “overheated” and “dehydrated”. However, there are many reasons to not believe that spin.

Firstly, if Mrs. Clinton’s collapse truly was a one-off acute episode, the Secret Service would have taken her to an emergency room to rule out heart troubles, stroke, etc. Instead, they all acted as if they have seen this before, and nonchalantly obeyed her instructions, delivering her to Chelsea Clinton’s apartment, which acted as a safe house.

This was all in secret, too, not letting anyone know for 90-minutes before delivering the “dehydration” excuse. Only because of smartphone video that surfaced on the Internet were they forced to make any announcement. (Video is powerful, and has been the downfall of old-school politicians.)

Why was Mrs. Clinton not taken to any of the nearby large tertiary-care medical centers? Bellevue Hospital is the designated hospital for the president of the United States.

Secondly, as evidenced by the different angles of the moment when Hillary Clinton collapsed into the van, she is seen as being rigid, with handlers having to pry her hands from the stanchion. Her legs are frozen. She did not collapse in the typical limp fashion one sees with syncope. She seemed to be in a tonic-clonic seizure, with a stiff body followed by her head bouncing back and forth. Previous videos of Mrs. Clinton also show her head in this classic clonic rhythmic bouncing.

Does Hillary Clinton have a degenerative neurologic disease, such as multiple sclerosis (MS)?

Mrs. Clinton fits the demographic for people prone to MS. Her symptoms of hoarse voice, seizures, “overheating”, and choking are all classic MS symptoms.

Six hours after the initial diagnosis of “dehydration” was served up by the campaign staff, they changed it to “pneumonia”, claiming the diagnosis was made two-days before, on Friday. If true, why was this kept secret? How did “seasonal allergies” cause an infectious pneumonia? What did the chest X-rays show, if they were even taken? What medical facility took the X-rays?

Per the New York Times, “Just after 5 p.m., a campaign official said Mrs. Clinton’s physician, Dr. Lisa R. Bardack, had examined the candidate at her home in Chappaqua, and Dr. Bardack said in a statement that Mrs. Clinton was “rehydrated and recovering nicely.”

“Secretary Clinton has been experiencing a cough related to allergies,” Dr. Bardack’s statement said, adding that on Friday morning, after a prolonged cough, Mrs. Clinton was given a diagnosis of pneumonia.

“She was put on antibiotics, and advised to rest and modify her schedule,” Dr. Bardack added. “At this morning’s event, she became overheated and dehydrated.””

Hillary and Bill Clinton have been exposed as liars for decades. During the Monica Lewinski days, they tried to deny that until DNA evidence from a dress was presented. More recently, the FBI stated in no uncertain terms that Hillary Clinton was not honest about her emails that were deleted from a personal server while she was Secretary of State. The Clintons have also lied about the funds donated to their Clinton Global Initiative and denied that they bought favors from Hillary’s State Department.

The Clinton’s do not deserve any benefit of the doubt. In the matter of her health, all of her medical records must be released, with detailed imaging studies and lab tests. There are many reasons to believe that she is covering up a chronic neurologic condition.
