The most common way to develop viral gastroenteritis — often called stomach flu — is through contact with an infected person or by consuming contaminated food or water. If you’re otherwise healthy, you’ll likely recover without complications. But for infants, older adults and people with compromised immune systems, viral gastroenteritis can be deadly.Mayo Clinic|”Viral gastroenteritis (stomach flu).”
Hitler Had Stomach Problems
This was revealed in 2012, when Hitler’s medical documents were being auctioned to the public by Alexander Historical Auctions. According to the files, flatulence had become so pervasive of an issue that he had to regularly ingest 28 different drugs to keep his reputation “squeaky” clean.
A stunted libido, uncontrollable flatulence and an addiction to cocaine are a few of Adolf Hitler’s apparent health problems, as revealed by medical documents now up for auction at Alexander Historical Auctions in Stamford, Conn., according to the New York Daily News.
The embarrassing health problems — particularly Hitler’s “uncontrollable flatulence” — are a humorous reminder that history’s most despised and feared dictators are still human.
According to the medical records, which were commissioned by the U.S. military, Hitler regularly took up to 28 different drugs to attempt to restrain his farting. This included pills containing strychnine, a poison, “which probably explains his stomach pains,” said Bill Panagopoulos, president of Alexander Autographs.
The reports also show that der Führer required occasional “cleansing enemas,” which were activated using chamomile plants. Chamomile is a daisy-like plant that is also known for its ability to aid sleep and reduce stress. No doubt the high-strung dictator found some benefit in the plant’s psychological treatments too.
Speaking of being high-strung, the reports also indicate that Hitler was a full-blown cocaine addict — which may be less surprising to anyone who has listened to any of his agitated speeches. He apparently originally snorted the powered stuff as a treatment for blocked sinuses and to soothe a sore throat, but the reports indicate that his dosage had to be lowered after the dictator began to crave it.
Perhaps the most bizarre revelation to come out of the medical reports, however, is what Hitler took to revive his stunted libido: injections of bull semen. That’s right, der Führer was, on at least one occasion, loaded up with “extracts” from the seminal vesicles, testis and prostate of virile young bulls.
Disgusting? Yes. But did it work? If the fact that Hitler slept in a separate bed from his lifelong companion, Eva Braun, is any indication, probably not. At the very least, it’s another strange chapter in the life of one of history’s most hated madmen.
In all, the medical records are contained in 225 detailed pages and were written by seven of Hitler’s chief physicians. The full catalogues from the Alexander Historical Auctions can be found here and here. They also include X-ray copies of Hitler’s skull and sketches of the inside of his nose. Bidding for the documents will be completed this week, and the documents are expected to sell for as much as $2,000.
