Hitler's  health according to Dr Morell
A not too clean bill  of health
Dr Theo Morell was Hitler’s physician  since 1936. According to the first medical
exam performed by Dr Morell, Hitler then looked his age (45) but already suffered   
from  gastro-intestinal disturbances. He weighed  about 70 kgs and  measured 1.76
m. His blood  group was
 A+ and he suffered from swelling in the pyloric region of
the stomach, the left lobe of the liver  was enlarged and he had a pain in the
region of the right  kidney and   eczema of the left leg.

Dr  Nissle of the Bacteriological institute of  Freiburg made an analysis and
detected  presence of disfunctional flora in the intestinal  tract. Dr  Morell then
prescribed 1-2 pills of Mutaflor after each evening meal and after a while the
treatment was successful.

Hitler suffered also of meteorism, aggavated by his vegetarian diet.  Morell then  
prescribed  Dr Koster’s  antigas pills  meal which contained strychnine (2-4 at
every meal), an component that could have been responsible for the epigastric
pain and the  bronzing of  the skin noted in later years.

Dr Morell noted that secondary sexual characteristics (beard and moustache) were
normally  developed but he never checked on Hitler’s sexual attributes as  Hitler
never let anybody see him in the nude.

Morell also thought that Hitler suffered from gastro-duodenitis  that blocked the
flow of the bile and prescribed Gallestol to restore the flow. For his vegetarian diet
that  was insufficient,   Morell prescribed   vitamultin-calcium B1 (acid ascorbic)
administered intravenously mixed with glucose to increase energy. The epigastric
pain was diminished by the treatment but kept on coming back notably after
meals.  As an additional measure Morell  prescribed  injections of  Progynon
(benzoic acid and dihydro-follicle hormone) which increases circulation in the
gastric mucosa and prevents spasms in the gastric wells.

On the left  side of his thigh Adolf Hitler had a scar result of WW 1  wound.

His head was slightly dolichocephalic and he had   a slight tremor of the left arm
and a slight dragging of the left leg that appeared  after Hitler contracted a grippe-
like disease during an inspection in Ukraine in1942. The tremor increased in  
gravity until the assassination attempt  of July 1944 after which it  decreased   but
re-appeared in aggravated form in the last months of 1944 and in 1945.

In 1936, the psychiatric data of Hitler observed by Dr Morell were the following  :
-        excellent memory
-        excellent judgment of  time and space
-        not easily distracted
-        emotionally very  liable : likes and dislikes  very  pronounced
-        flow of thought showed continuity
-        no phobia or obsessions
-        no hallucinations, visions or paranoid trend

However  other Adolf Hitler’s physicians think at the end of the war that  constant
medication over the years may have upset the  physiological  balance of his body.

A complete list of Hitler's  medication over the years
A short biography of Dr. Theo Morell
Dr Theo Morell was Hitler's
personal  physician since  1936.
He was introduced to Hitler at the
Berghof by Pr. Hoffmann who
Morell had cured for gonorrhea.  
Dr Morell produced a terrible
effect on Hitler but was rather  
deemed disgusting by his
colleagues for his fatness and his
lack of hygiene.
Hitler's  health was the exact  
opposite of the radiant image the
Nazi  propaganda was displaying
of the German  people : healthy,
sound and free of  drugs. The Nazi
regime was nothing but lies and
Dr Morell  was fat, ugly and
anti-hygienic looking. It is an
enigma that he was able to take
such an ascendancy on Hitler but
Hitler pretended that his
prescriptions were working
miracles on him.
The SS man looked  good in the
picture but the Fuehrer's health
was another  issue. It was bad,
fragile, subject to depressions,
weaknesses, infections, edemas,
 flatulence, tiredness,  cramps,
poor heart.
