Good possums in my yard

Possums are actually the mammals, opossums.  Opening their mouths they appear scary.  But the are not interested in biting anyone.  They don’t eat pretty flowers or plants.  They don’t carry rabies.  They lick themselves to eat thousands of ticks every year and also rummage through the trash and eat other dead animals they might find.  With tick bites affecting people here (Lyme disease) there are reasons to appreciate “possums”. Average life span is 2years.

Donating blood

Gentle.  I don’t know if it was the gentle touch of the technician or my history of working in the energy field – but I didn’t feel the finger prick to test my blood or the needle in my arm to extract blood.

All the Red Cross mobile units have been shut down until the end of the year because of social distancing.  That means there are fewer places to collect blood.  With all the conditions they were screening out, I wondered who’ll be giving blood.

Other women

***Christiane Northrup, MD. She is an integrative holistic OB-GYN.  I began reading her pieces when I picked up a book while working in a mental health setting in Richmond.  She’s been writing about women’s issues for some 40 years, now whole books about all kinds of issues.   She was educating her patients about nutrition early on, as her father, a dentist, did.  I think she does a great I hour educational great piece on You Tube about  *Thermograms*.  This test is now available through a mobile unit at the pilates center on Strawberry Plains Road. It includes a follow-up with an explanation of results of this technology using heat, not radiation.

Terry Wahls, MD. A professor at a medical school, she found herself in a wheelchair before age 40 with a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis.  She did a lot of her own research to regain her health and function upright.  The paleo diet has been a major factor in her turnaround.  She wrote a book, The Walls Protocol, to guide those with an autoimmune diagnosis to a better quality of life.

Tieraona Low Dog, MD.  From a Native American family, she’s recognised as an herbal specialist here and in other countries.  She teaches about healthy lifestyle choices.  She openly speaks against glyphosate (something today’s children are growing up with).  More recently she has survived stage IV breast cancer.

Suzanne Humphries, MD  She is an internist and kidney specialist.  She began noticing her kidney patients going downhill after getting vaccines the medical corporation required.  She repeatedly voiced her objections against the vaccines.  The corporation didn’t listen.  She gave up her corporate position paying over $400,000 a year.  She’s now educating about vaccines.

This topic is here because I recently met a customer at the grocery store buying her weekly tuna.  She packs it everyday for her lunch at work.  This lady is one of the totally unaware of the high level of mercury (a potent neurotoxin) in tuna.  TV medical doctor personalities (also on You Tube), like Mehmet Oz and Mark Hyman, have gotten test results showing high mercury levels.

Here are a few websites to see the different levels of mercury (Hg) in fish:

  National Resources Defense Council.

Mercury Policy Project

Mercury accumulates over time and can be extremely difficult to remove from the brain.  Tuna is still considered a staple by the nation’s food banks.  They purchase cases of it with cash donations.  Hopefully this current virus concern won’t be a reason to increase the sharing of it. David and I donate items, not cash to local food collections for the needy. No money to buy tuna.
