Dr. Feelgood's Tonic: The Cinton is Getting Needled with "B-12 As Needed"


Bardack listed Clinton’s current medications as Armorthyroid, Coumadin dosed as directed, Levaquin (for a total of ten days), Clarinex, and B-12 as needed. Hillary's Physician’s Detailed Letter Of Clinton's Condition

This cute little script for "B-12 as needed," written by Hillary's very private doctor, makes me nostalgic for the old days in New York City in the 70s. In those days you recovered from the abuse of “Vitamin C”ocaine with a shot of Vitamin B-12 (with extras) from the man we always knew as Dr. Feelgood.

Dr. Feelgood was the man you'd see if you had used too much "Creative Push." He'd also give you the shot if you were just fagged out either from 36-hours of work or 36-hours of the bathhouses. My gay pals at The Cosmodemonic Magazine Company had a standing office appointment with our Dr. Feelgood every Monday morning at 10.He was a very popular doctor and he was always ready, for money, to stuff his ethics in a garbage can and make house calls with a portable pharmacy that not only contained the cure for cocaine but cocaine as well. As a doctor he could get pharmaceutical grade cocaine. He was a very general practitioner and extremely popular.

You either know or have heard of this Dr. Feelgood... or the whole tribe of Dr. Feelgoods that is spread out from NYC to Hollywood and Frisco. The Dr. Feelgood's of our age are so necessary for the staffs of those who are 'powering through' there have even been songs about them.

Don't send me no doctor.
Filling me up with all of those pills.
I got me a man name Dr. Feelgood.
Oh! Yeah! That man takes care of all of my pains and my ills.
His name is Dr. Feelgood in the morning.
And taking care of business
is really this man's game.

-- Aretha Franklin

Jimmy's got it wired, law's for hire
Got it make in the shade
Got a little hideaway, does business all day
But at night he'll always be found
Selling sugar to the sweet
People on the street
Call this Jimmy's town

He's the one they call Dr. Feelgood
He's the one that makes ya feel alright
He's the one they call Dr. Feelgood
He's gonna be your Frankenstein

--Motley Cru

In any case, as a veteran of Dr. Feelgood’s morning after shots, I am here to tell you they can turn you from the sick politician on top to the happy and healthly pol on the bottom. Yup, Dr. Feelgood’s B-12 concoctions can sure perk a girl up.


But then again, I wasn’t in the Chelsea Clinton shooting gallery apartment where the falling candidate was carted to be “reset” instead of the Secret Service mandated visit to the much more public emergency room. So, do I really know what happened in there and what Clinton was given to perk her up besides lots of water? Not at all. I wonder if she had to be manhandled into the building once the handicap/black ambulence van ditched they NYPD escort. Iwonder if anyone on the street or adjoining stores saw that? Real reporters would have followed up but there are no real reporters. They have been hunted to extinction.

So do I know she took a shot in the butt from her traveling dealer doctor? No. But I know junkies and I know that once the needle goes in it never comes out. Don’t take my word for it. Check out JFK, another Democratic Saint who needed a little “creative push” from the original Dr. Feelgood:

New book reveals how Marilyn Monroe, JFK and Liz Taylor were in thrall to shady German Dr Max Jacobson After studying under Freud and Jung, he began to experiment with methamphetamine — speed in today’s terminology — a drug that enhanced moods and stimulated the emotions. Bizarrely, he took to mixing it with vitamins, enzymes, animal placentas, blood serum and hormones to produce elixirs that he tested out on himself and then prescribed to private patients.
The Kennedy meth Ditching his Secret Service handlers to meet Jacobson in private, Kennedy told him that the rigors of the campaign had him feeling weak and muscle-achy to the point where he was “almost crippled by the pain.” The first shot Jacobson ever gave Kennedy left him a changed man. “Suddenly JFK, who had entered the office tired and weak, had a bounce in his step and could move more easily, despite the pain that he lived with every day of his life. He felt stronger, cool, focused and very alert . . . almost as if the patient had become another person.”

Of course that was all long ago. But have the famous and the driven and the celebrated and the merely fashionably thin forgotten about these B-12 cocktails? Not in the least. Their love for the mystery molecule remains strong: Seeing Red: Do B12 Injections Work?

B12 shots are massive doses of the water-soluble vitamin—found in foods such as shellfish, beef liver, and fortified breakfast cereals—that is essential for neurological function, red blood cell formation, and DNA synthesis. .... The typical injection, a vial of neon red liquid that resembles the dyed sugar water I put in my hummingbird feeder, contains 1,000 micrograms of B12, or in excess of 400 times more than what the average person requires. Proponents of B12 shots claim they turbocharge the metabolism (read: make you thinner), strengthen the immune system, and help cure fatigue, insomnia, even depression.
Sound familiar?

Mix in some special little extra chemicals and for Hillary Clinton it would be, well, “just what the doctor ordered.”

It’s easy to do when your ‘doctor’ is also your ‘dealer.’

I pushed my soul in a deep dark hole and then I followed it in
I watched myself crawlin' out as I was a-crawlin' in
I got up so tight I couldn't unwind
I saw so much I broke my mind
I just dropped in to see what condition my condition was in

Hillary looks rather like a ventriloquist's dummy in that first picture, doesn't she?

If she really has the rumored drinking problem, it's no surprise her physical condition was certified by a bar doc. (sorry)

Standard of care treatment (per several sources, not the least of which being the venerable "Sanford Guide to Antimicrobial Therapy") for CAP (Community-Acquired Pneumonia aka "walking pneumonia") is STILL azithromycin, clarithromycin, doxycycline or amoxicillin/clavulanic acid... fluoroquinolones are the LAST choice and since the FDA put out a strongly worded black box warning advising against their use as first-line therapy for just about anything, I seriously wonder about Dr. Bardack's understanding of infectious disease and proper, responsible antibiotic prescribing habits. I worry about my colleagues who prescribe Omnicef for whiners who come into our clinic with twelve hours of sniffles and sinus pressure "I have a SINUS infection" just to satisfy the patient's demand for "something really strong because I'm resistant" and/or get them out of our hair; they're not doing the community any favors either. Considering HRC's history of seizures (even Bill's mentioned she does this frequently), is Levaquin really a sound first choice antibiotic for a frail 69 year old woman, especially as she's on coumadin and LT4?

It is why, crushed up B-12 vitamins were used to "stomp" cocaine back in the day.

Just a little pin prick
There'll be no more aaaaaaaah!
But you may feel a little sick

Can you stand up?
I do believe it's working, good
That'll keep you going through the show
Come on, it's time to go.

Having had actual "walking" non-life-threatening pneumonia, there's no freaking way she would have been smiling and waving that soon after collapsing without a little "pick-me-up".

Actually, given Hillary's hypothyroidism, which is generally caused by an autoimmune disorder called Hashimoto's Thyroiditis, it's VERY likely that Hillary has one or more ADDITIONAL autoimmune disorders, as there is a well established connection between Hashimoto's Thyroiditis and additional autoimmune disorders.

Pernicious anemia is one such common autoimmune disease, REQUIRING B-12 injections at least once a month ("as needed" to avoid dying from the body's inability to orally absorb B-12) due to auto-antibodies that attack both the intrinsic factor that pulls the giant B-12 molecule through the intestinal wall as well as the gastric parietal cells of the stomach lining that produce intrinsic factor.

Bottom line is that Hillary is almost undoubtedly hiding the fact that she also has pernicious anemia if she's having to take B-12 injections.

I agree that Hillary is probably sick from all of the above; and heck, she may well have substance abuse problems, too.

But taking extra B-12 is pretty normal for middle-aged women and above, because that's when women stop being able to process B-12 much from their food. I take those little 1000 mcg B-12 tablets sublingually during breaks at work, and really I need to take three or four to get any kind of energy in my body. (Obviously a sublingual tablet means that not as much B-12 gets into you as with a shot. But they do help.)

Us middle-aged ladies also tend to need to supplement with Vitamin D and Vitamin A. If you know somebody who keeps catching every respiratory disease that comes along, or if their hair is mysteriously thinning, they are probably a quart low on Vitamin A. Vitamin D deficiency can cause depression and lack of energy, too.

So yeah, a lot of doctors are going back to prescribing B-12 shots, on the theory that a lot of Americans are overstressed and under-energized because they are not getting all the vitamins they need. This is the kind of thing they did in the 1950's, but it works for some. (In others, at least it gives them some energy while they find out what's causing the problem.) Shots are scary, but dragging around with no idea what's wrong is also scary.
