Alan Shepard was allegedly grounded as an astronaut because given his diagnosis of Meniere's Disease, unexpected vertigo and other Meniere's Disease associated symptoms could easily have rendered him not only incapacitated and so ineffective, but moreover, outright dangerous given the alleged requirements of an Apollo crew member.

The world renown otolaryngologist, William House, performed a surgery on Shepard. Charles Berry, a man on the NASA dole and Shepard's Physician, proclaimed Shepard cured and fit to command an Apollo Mission. Shepard was restored to active duty, I believe, in the spring of 1969 and went on to command the fraudulent Apollo 14 mission".

In 1969, as now, Meniere's Disease was not, nor was it mistakenly recognized as, a curable disease, not with surgery nor with any other intervention. Additionally, as regards those undergoing Meniere's Disease surgery of the type Shepard underwent, the other ear, the one NOT OPERATED ON COULD BECOME INVOLVED BY THE DISEASE PROCESS AND SO RESULT IN THE PRODUCTION OF SYMPTOMS.

As the surgery alleged to have been performed on Shepard could not have provided any reasonable degree of certainty/reassurance that Alan Shepard would not have an outer space vertiginous bout were any of this nonsense true to begin with, one may conclude with unmitigated metaphysical certainty that as Shepard actually was cleared for and flew , indeed commanded the Apollo 14 Mission, said mission was 10 plus fake, phony , fraudulent bull bull bull, and not only have we identified less than quark sized gonad Shepard as the flat out punk charlatan that he is, but Charles Berry, the big shot NASA physician to all the ain'tstronauts is so identified as a punk charlatan chumly Apollo Fraud Perpetrator as well.

Seems like you really have a bug for proving Apollo was fake. Wouldn't it have made sense to put all your threads into one big Apollo is fake thread?

Yes and no.

I really didn't/don't know if some of these rather esoteric subjects/subtopics would surface in the course of a single thread, and as such, believed/believe dedicated posts addressing a specific aspect of the grand rip job is a good way to go.

1. Surgery from quick google searches show that surgery can alleviate the symptoms at the risk of damaging history, and 2 do you have any proof that it went into his second ear? I mean the wiki page with its citation of a book on the disease suggests that "Ménière's disease usually starts confined to one ear, but it often extends to involve both ears over time. The number of patients who end up with bilaterial Ménière's is debated, with ranges spanning from 17% to 75%." its easily acceptable that he was in the realm of those who didn't get it both ears.

I did some research on this. What I found was that Sheppard was released by his doctor to return to duty, but I didn't find anything saying that he "proclaimed Sheppard cured". Can you provide some evidence supporting this claim?

By evidence, of course, I mean written documents by Dr. House and/or recorded audio of Dr. House with or without video.

Alan B. Shepard, the first American astronaut and fifth man on the Moon, was diagnosed with Ménière’s disease in 1964, grounding him after only one brief spaceflight. Several years later, an endolymphatic shunt surgery (which was then at the experimental stage) was performed, allowing Shepard to fly to the Moon on Apollo 14.[49]


experimental stage so they werent sure if it was curable yet. ie. still in testing.

after the surgery he passed enough test to prove himself fit to fly that was in 1969, from there to the time of the apollo 14 mission was 2 years, im sure something would have shown up by than.



He was restored to full flight status in May 1969, following corrective surgery for an inner ear disorder.
Shepard made his second space flight as spacecraft commander on Apollo 14, January 31 - February 9, 1971.

www.jsc.nasa.gov...

and note due to his condition, they took him off the roster for apollo 13.

Your post perhaps was bringing up some validly arguable points up to this:

At that point I felt you were beginning to lose a bit of credibility. It's possible your personal opinions could be a bit better polished for presentation in order to be better received. Just MHO, for what it's worth.

My friend Billy is a famous ear doctor who lives on a boat. He is an expert on ear doctoring and sextants even if his grammar is not so good. My friend Billy operated on Alan Sheperd on his boat with a sextant and cured his ear so he could fly in his spaceship and that proves decisively is a fony.

Okay we get it ! This is your third thread in as many days on the Apollo Hoax stuff, but do you really have to pull yourself down with the name calling ?
I have difficulty myself with some of the evidence surrounding the Apollo programme but really ? Name calling like your a schoolkid ain't helping your cause !
Also your posts are lacking in any REAL substance !
Just my opinion anyways !

Peace

Koffee, thanks for the post. As it turns out, the rather ridiculous medicine practiced by the "Apollo Doctors" is perhaps the best way to demonstrate with unmitigated metaphysical certitude the fraudulence of the American manned space program. The reason being, the phony medicine is obvious, clear cut, unambiguously cock and bull based, and most significantly, one cannot be told by an aeronautic engineer, "you don't know what you are talking about". Because in this case, it is they who lack expertise, the aeronautical engineers and space geeks of other ilk.


There is no way to prove Meniere's disease is IN one ear to begin with. There are tests doctors do to help make a diagnosis of Meiere's disease, but to a significant degree, it is a clinical diagnosis, meaning there is a characteristic pattern of symptoms the individual experiences, and in addition, other diseases are excluded. These would be things like acoustic neuroma, benign positional vertigo, garden variety labyrinthitis and so forth.

The percentage of individuals developing Meniere's Disease bilaterally is oddly enough not known with certainty, despite rather intensive study of the problem. One finds in the literature figures as low as 10% and as high as 70%. Regardless, bilateral disease develops with reasonable frequency, and when it does, it seldom is such that the so affected individual presents with disease in both ears.

William House was a world class otolaryngologist, a great innovator, though he did not "invent" the "shunt" surgery that Shepard allegedly had. In House's day, the pathophysiology of Meniere's Disease was believed to be on the basis of endolymph build up. Endolymph is an inner ear fluid. The thinking was, and is, that if one can shunt the excess fluid away, give it an avenue for escape, the person will do better. House "refined " a surgery previously played around with.

Then(the 1960s), as now(the 2010s), most otolaryngologists that performed surgeries on people with Meniere's Disease did not view themselves as "curing" the problem. In a significant number of individuals the vertigo would decrease in terms of frequency and/or intensity post surgery. Some people had/have no further attacks of vertigo per se after shunt surgery. Keep in mind there are other symptoms that occur with Meniere's Disease which are not affected/improved by shunt surgery, for example hearing loss. Some surgeons and non surgical based physicians who today treat individuals with Meniere's Disease attribute any beneficial outcomes to a placebo effect. Notwithstanding the validity, or lack thereof, as regards placebo effect claims, there is no question that surgeries of various types have and continue to help individuals with Meniere's Disease.

Coincidentally, there was a symposium on the subject of Meniere's Disease in 1968. America's great physicians of the time assembled to discuss the issue, including William House. I have 2 copies actually of the proceedings Published by Saunders. The numerous articles, essays on various aspects of the subject, appeared in OTOLARYNGOLOGY CLINICS OF NORTH AMERICA. The volume runs roughly 600 pages. One can acquire it through on line used book services. Read that and you shall know how the surgeons of the day, including William House, viewed Meniere's Disease.

Shepard was diagnosed in/around 1962 and I believe the William House surgery occurred in 1968. You may want to double check the dates. As I understand it, Shepard was restored to active duty and given the OK to fly aboard Apollo 13 in the spring of 1969, and so this was roughly a year after the alleged surgery. As it turns out, he commanded Apollo 14. That said, it is important to realize that he was cleared to command an Apollo ship only one year or so after his "operation".

Charles Berry, the main NASA/Apollo Program physician and the man clearing Shepard for flight would have been more than familiar with the realities/statistics of the time. Indeed, it was his job, and were any of this real, which it is most decidedly NOT, much would have depended on Berry's competency in this regard. One year after surgery, or 3 years even, Charles Berry could not be sure Shepard would have no further symptoms even in the alleged surgerized and "cured" ear, let alone the as regards surgical state, virgin other ear.

It is not unreasonable to assume William House actually operated on Alan Shepard's ear. It is on the other hand quite frankly preposterous to suggest that a competent physician such as Berry would view the risk of vertigo in space for Shepard as an acceptable risk and send him to the moon. As such, we have here an elegant and complete proof of Apollo's fraudulence and in addition we have nabbed one of the perpetrators, Dr. Charles Berry.

Who would have thunk it so ?........

Main problem is that assumes that if the symptoms had reappeared during that time (of which I don't see any evidence of that) they wouldn't just kick him off again and replace him with their backup.

So you are a doctor qualified to make a judgment in this particular situation?

I didn't think so.

So you have something stuck in your craw with Apollo. Instead of attacking physical evidence you go after something as obscure as the ear condition of one astronaut.

Why don't you tell us why you don't believe we went to the Moon? Get to the basics of it.
Is it because we haven't gone back?
Is it because we could not have with the tech of the day?
Why did we go to all that trouble to create such a big hoax?

You understand not, Meniere's Disease. It is not unlike a seizure disorder in that most of the time, most individuals so "suffering" do reasonably well and then, BOOM.

A hypothetical to help to understand the problem. Say Shepard had a seizure disorder and was having seizures at a frequency of once every two years. Rarely, no ? He wants to fly to the moon and a new drug has come out that someone says guarantees no more seizures, PERIOD. Shepard is started on this med and indeed has been seizure free for 4 years. Would you let him go ?

Of course not.

Read more about Meniere's disease, especially the symptom pattern over time, and you will understand the problem here. Shepard can be symptom free until the time of launch, even until the time of boarding the LM, this does not mean he cannot be nailed on his way down to the lunar surface.

Actually, the medical stuff is the easiest way to nail the sucks. Did you see TSD's Borman video ? Compeling would be an understatement. And that is only the tip of the spaceberg.



Apollo is fraudulent. It is quite easy to demonstrate actually. Would you take a pill in outer space to intentioanlly give yourself diarrhea ? Of course not. Borman is more than a clown, he ripped off your parents. He should be in jail. But we can settle for a public apology and cut his pension. A museum in D.C. memorializing the fraud with all the perps named and their nefarious activities outlined would be appropriate with regard to helping a bit in terms of preventing it from happening again.

That said, little chance, but the museum is still a good idea.

How bout some sources to back up your claims?

Since you seem to be doing this on multiple threads, It would be great to have some things to back up what you are talking about

Good you investigated that on your own, the part as regards the risk of disease developing in the previously unaffected ear. So even with the lowest figure, say a 17% risk of disease developing in the other ear, would you send Shepard to the moon ?

Of course not....

Depends on what you read. There are several references that I have which explicitly use the term "cured". I'll get you a reference when I have a chance to look at my books. No problem.

Did you know William house, Shepard's surgeon, was invited to and indeed attended the Apollo 14 launch ?
