It has been commonly reported over the last several years that Kent Hovind has suffered from a number of Transient Ischemic Attacks (TIAs). There have been no reports that he has received any traditional diagnosis or treatment for them.
In a live YouTube broadcast on Wednesday, August 24, 2022, Kent Hovind appeared to have a Transient Ischemic Attack. After a brief black out of the broadcast, Kent returned but continued to exhibit symptoms and eventually cut short the broadcast, blaming his problems on how much work he had done earlier in the day.
The YouTube broadcast was quickly removed from public view on Kent’s flagship “Kent Hovind Official” YouTube channel, but it remained publicly viewable on his alternative social media platforms (i.e., Odysee). Others have since been able to copy and preserve the video.

On August 25, 2022, Mark Stoney broadcast an analysis of the incident via his YouTube channel at the following link:
In his live broadcast also on August 25, 2022, Kent Hovind made some references to the incident. The video is found at the following link and his comments are illustrated below:
Regarding Transient Ischemic Attacks, this reference was found to provide some general information:
A transient ischemic attack (TIA) is a stroke that lasts only a few minutes. It happens when the blood supply to part of the brain is briefly blocked. Symptoms of a TIA are like other stroke symptoms, but do not last as long. They happen suddenly, and include:
- Numbness or weakness, especially on one side of the body
- Confusion or trouble speaking or understanding speech
- Trouble seeing in one or both eyes
- Difficulty walking
- Loss of balance or coordination
Most symptoms of a TIA disappear within an hour, although they may last for up to 24 hours. Because you cannot tell if these symptoms are from a TIA or a stroke, you should go to the hospital right away.
It is not known what further action, if any, other than the reported taking of vitamins, has been taken by Kent Hovind to deal with the incident and its potential consequences.
Cindi Lincoln has exchanged messages with me this evening via FaceBook messenger regarding the TIA and related issues. Following are screenshots of 2 of those messages.
