The Insider's Guide to Holistic Health

Brittany did end her life on November 1st as she felt her health was rapidly declining and she could lose her autonomy about choosing how her physical life would end. It is heart wrenching to think what her and her family have been through during her illness. There were and I’m sure will be some amazing life lessons learned through it all, though.

One reason I talked about Brittany was because I was curious about the cause of her illness. I will explore some more thoughts on that soon. One thing that I heard about recently that shocked me was about a parasite that racoons can transmit. I’ve had many many encounters with coons as they live in the trees in our yard. Our puppy has changed their habits some but they are still here. Mummy Funny Ear (She has one ear that is not quite as erect as the other and has brought her babies to show me, hence the name.) lives up the big cedar right in the middle of our yard and is a sweet shy little lady. I have had encounters in the past with ‘chicken eaters’…yes they stole our chickens but again our fault, they were just trying to survive. So I actually like the little critters and enjoy their antics but knowing what I know now, I don’t encourage them. Like I said, I’ll talk more about this parasite this week but just be aware that this can be deadly although it is rare. So if there are coon feces (they use specially designated latrines) in your area, make sure you don’t touch them or let your children or pets get into them. These parasites can cause terrible devastation to the brain. They don’t seem to impact the coons but other animals and humans can fall victim. It is RARE but certainly something to be aware of. I’m not saying that this is what happened to Brittany at all but it is an example of a parasite causing brain deterioration.

I did have some people comment on my blog with thoughts like what about EMFs etc. All a possibility as a cause, but can’t be sure. More later…
