Holistic Child Health Newsletter 
June 2015 (Part 1 of 2)


Dear Friends,


Welcome to the Holistic Child Health Newsletter.


The goal of my holistic pediatric practice, and of this newsletter, is to inform and support parents to become more empowered as the primary health care providers for their children. Extending far beyond Western medicine's conventional treatments, holistic medicine and mindful parenting allow us to boost children's natural immunity, support their optimum health and wellness, safely heal any illnesses, and prevent disease-without dangerous side effects.  Holistic medicine provides us with the tools to nurture the physical, emotional, social and spiritual health of your children.


Over the coming months and years, I intend to use this newsletter to address some of your concerns as parents, share information that you might want to add to your knowledge base, and inform you of important issues and current events that are happening in the news, and in your area.


Together we can heal the whole child. Naturally.


Yours in Health,


Lawrence B. Palevsky, MD

Questions and Answers....
Each month, Dr Palevsky will be answering a hot topic question....

   Question Corner



Dr Palevsky, whenever my child gets a fever, the pediatrician advises me to give her Tylenol. This greatly concerns me. Is there scientific information that I can share with him to articulate my fears about the damage that can be done by giving this drug to children? If I am right and this drug is severely detrimental to  children's health, can  the effects be reversed?

You are right. There is no safe dose of Tylenol/Acetaminophen for any living organism. 

Evidence that Increased Acetaminophen use in Genetically Vulnerable Children Appears to be a Major Cause of the Epidemics of Autism, Attention Deficit with Hyperactivity, and Asthma

Tylenol use diminishes stores of glutathione, a vital antioxidant and detoxifying chemical in the body. It may even down-regulate the body's production of glutathione. Glutathione is most needed during times of fever and illness because it helps to det oxify the body, and the purpose of the illness is almost always to help the body detoxify. Glutathione is essentially depleted from the body when anyone takes acetaminophen. 

One way to reverse the effects is to not use the drug any more. Another way is to increase cysteine-containing foods in the diet. Some people take NAC (n-acetyl-cysteine) as a supplement, but consult your health care provider as to whether it is a good product for you. Many people with chronic illnesses, where glutathione stores are known to be depleted, take one or more form of glutathione, with varying results, i.e., L-glutathione, reduced glutathione, liposomal glutathione, and acetyl-glutathione.

Albany Trying to Make Meningococcal Shots Mandatory Again 
Call Albany Now!

   From Autism Action Network



If it is springtime then it is time for Albany politicians flush with cash from drug companies to try and force more vaccines into our children.  There are several bills right now seeking to increase the number of mandatory shots required to go to school in New York. The first is a bill that would require meningitis vaccines for all sixth graders and eleventh graders in the state, Assembly Bill A791A introduced by Aileen Gunther and S4324 introduced by Kemp Hannon. 


We need to stop this bill. 


This bill serves utterly no public health goal because it would result in more students in New York getting killed or injured from the vaccine than from the strains of meningitis which the vaccine claims to prevent.


The last time the legislature tried to make meningococcal shots mandatory in New York was 2011. In 2011 there were 7 cases of meningitis in the age groups covered by the proposed law. The vaccine does not protect against the B strain of meningitis that makes up about 30% of infections. And the vaccine manufacturer claims the vaccine is 85% effective. Do the math, 7 x .3 x .85 = 4 cases prevented in the best-case scenario.


According to the package insert about 1% of vaccine recipients in the affected age group suffer "serious adverse" reactions to the shot. With an estimated 300,000 shots per year required by the proposed law that yields an estimate 3,000 serious adverse reactions annually to prevent a potential 4 cases of meningitis.


Each shot cost approximately $115 combined with $50 administration fee. the cost would be $165 x 300,000 = $49,500,00. Nearly $50 million and 3,000 serious adverse reactions to prevent 4 cases of meningitis. This is just stupid public health policy.


PLEASE CALL  Assemblymember Aileen Gunther and Senator Kemp Hannon's offices and politely explain why this is a really bad idea for both public health and the taxpayers' finances and ask them to scrap the bill. And remind them that any parent who wants to get this shot for their child is free to do so.


And please click  HERE  to send a message to your State Senator and Assemblymember asking them to oppose this bill.

H.R.2232 - Vaccinate All Children Act of 2015


Dr. Palevsky's Comments:

On paper, this bill seems to do the following -

1) Potentially overrides state philosophical and religious exemptions, essentially removing them, while tying federal grants to the States enacting the mandates.

2) Allow only for medical exemptions.

3) Leave the validity of the 
medical exemptions up to the discretion of the individual in charge of the health program at the student's school. Not clear if this is a nurse, physician, physician assistant, nurse practitioner, or someone else.

4) Require all students in school to be fully vaccinated according to the recommendations of the ACIP.


Take Action?

If you want to contact Representative Wilson, and tell her what you think of her bill, here is her contact: Not sure of her ties to Big Pharma.......


Whether this bill passes the committee, House, and/or Senate, the intention of the bill is pretty clear from a federal(corporate) perspective.
