Adolf Hitler Farted Like a Horse
Der Führer (leader) was known also as Der Furzer (farter) because of his uncontrollable farting
Adolf Hitler suffered from farting, which made most of his dinner parties intolerable. His farting was the worst right after dinner, therefore Hitler would often get up from the dinner table and leave to his private quarters, much to the surprise of his guests.
Hitler suffered from uncontrollable flatulence, stomach cramps, constipation, and diarrhea for most of his life. Usually, these symptoms exacerbated when he was under stress.
The flatulence convinced Hitler to switch to a vegetarian diet in 1931. He never considered that a high-fiber diet worsened his flatulence.
On other hand, Hitler loved sweets, which certainly didn’t help his health problems.
Adolf Hitler blindly trusted a quack doctor
Interestingly, Hitler’s farting contributed to his demise. Desperately suffering from overwhelming flatulence, Hitler turned to the services of Dr. Theodor Morell in 1936. Morell managed (at least temporarily) to calm Hitler’s farting problems and thus earned his blind trust.
Morell became Hitler’s personal physician and followed him everywhere. The new position made Morell a multi-millionaire.
For his problems with flatulence, Hitler received probiotic preparation Mutaflor and Dr. Koester’s Anti-Gas pills, which contained strychnine (rat poison).
Theodor Morell became Hitler’s drug dealer
Theodor Morell (1886-1948) was a quasi doctor who knew almost nothing about his medical profession. Hitler’s inner circle despised Morell for being a quack. Hermann Goering, Hitler’s right-hand man, nicknamed Morell a “Reich Master of Injections.”
Remaining Hitler’s doctors saw how dangerous was Morell to Hitler’s health. They actually warned Hitler, however they were dismissed.
Hitler needed Morell, since Morell turned him into a drug addict.
Morell regularly injected Hitler with drugs, including barbiturates, opiates, and amphetamines. Altogether, seventy-four substances were given to Hitler and contributed to his deteriorating health.
Among others, Morell gave Hitler heroin, cocaine, methamphetamines, oxycodone (an opioid painkiller sold under brand name Eukodal), testosterone, and strychnine.
At the end of World War II, Adolf Hitler was a physical wreck. His hands were so riddled with injection marks that even Hitler’s passive mistress Eva Braun complained about Morell’s activities.
There is a saying that people get the politicians and the doctors they deserve. In the case of Adolf Hitler, he got the doctor he deserved.
