Holistic Child Health Newsletter 
June 2014


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

The following is a letter written by a pediatrician to the FCC re: children's wireless exposure. Any families with children who have sleep disorders, neurological dysfunction, autoimmunity, behavioral issues, asthma, allergies, and any other chronic illnesses, might want to read this letter, and pay attention to the case histories. Families who have relatively healthy children might be just as concerned. 

EMF exposure can significantly affect the health of our children, in ways we may not have imagined. As much as we think it's cute to expose children to smart phones, iPads, cell phones, computers, and other electromagnetic machines like baby monitors and microwaves, we may be adversely impacting their health when they are in the midst of all of this Wi-Fi exposure, especially now that schools, parks, restaurants, and stores are putting in wi-fi. 

I recommend that readers of this letter look up the Bioinitiative Reports of 2007 & 2012, and read through the specific sections to which this pediatrician is alluding. 
Give your home a trial of no wi-fi, no cordless phones, no microwaves and, perhaps, the use of the Stetzer filters, and see what happens to the health of your children. 
See to look at the Stetzer meter to consider measuring the level of dirty electricity in your home, and the Stetzer filter, to use them strategically placed in your home to protect your children. 

N.B., I have no financial interest in the company that manufactures the Stetzer filter.

Re: The reassessment of FCC radio frequency exposure limits and policies 

Dear FCC: 
I am writing to you today to request that you reevaluate current FCC safety standards for wireless technologies and "dirty" electricity. The reason I am requesting this is because current research, and what I see in my clinical practice, indicate a revision of current safety standards is long overdue. Children are suffering disability and disease in much higher numbers than 30 years ago. Their EMF exposure is clearly a significant contributing factor. The fastest, most reliable way of educating yourselves on this topic is to read and understand the Bioinitiative Reports of 2007 and the 2012 update. Table 1-1 "Summary for the public" would be a good starting point. 

1. Children have a right to live and play and learn where their DNA will not be damaged by non-ionizing radiation. This is not the case today. See sections 5 and 6 of the 2012 Bioinitiative Report for evidence for effects on genes and protein expression and genotoxic effects - RFR and ELF DNA damage with current "safety standards." 

2. Children have a right to live and play and learn in locations where their immune systems are adequately protected from detrimental non-ionizing radiation. This is not the case today. See Section 8 of the 2012 Bioinitiative Report "Evidence for effects on immune function." Children are developing allergies and cancer at much higher rates than before. 

3. Children have a right to live and play and learn where non-ionizing radiation will not adversely affect their neurology or behavior. This is not the case today. See Section 9 of the 2012 Bioinitiative Report "Evidence for effects on neurology and behavior" 

A four-year-old boy presents to my office with his parents. They request help for their son so he may be able to learn and behave better. He moves around my waiting room like a hurricane, turning over chairs, pulling at the blinds, damaging the blinds, and screaming. His parents look 
on with their shoulders drooping and their hands in their pockets. They love their son dearly but he is so out of control they have no clue where to begin. We agree on a two-week EMF remediation trial (no Wi-Fi for 12 hours at night, no cordless phones, and Stetzer filters to decrease detrimental EMF from house wiring). Within one week I received an email from his parents. "The EMF remediation trial is working. Our son is now able to have more back and forth conversation. We have better eye contact with him and he is even receptive to the idea of a star chart for good behavior. In addition his bowel movements are now normal." At follow-up in my office, which now had RF filters throughout, this child was calm, poised, made good eye contact and could converse at age level. His "bad" behaviors were gone. 

A five-year-old boy presents with parents who tell me their child has uncontrollable arm flapping daily and has been diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder. They disagree with the diagnosis because when he visits grandma in rural Tennessee for a month, the arm flapping stops completely! When they return to the San Francisco Bay Area the arm flapping returns. The parents also mention that there is no cell-phone reception in grandma's area of Tennessee. 

A three-year-old child is being evaluated for speech delay and learning disability. He also has frequent high-pitched screaming and head-bangs and rocks a lot and has great sleep difficulties. But when he visits his aunt in rural Oregon (where there is no cell-phone reception) he sleeps for the first 24 hours and then wakes up like a "new child." He no longer screams, he is calm, he plays normally, he can sleep at night and be awake during the day. When the family returns to their home in California, their son has high-pitched screaming again when they reach the Sacramento area, and his sleep difficulties and other problems return. 

4. Children have a right to live, play and learn in locations that protect them from developing cancer at a young age. This is not the case today. 

A 12-year-old girl presents with her dad. She is diagnosed with liver cancer. Six months later, shortly after her 13th birthday, she succumbs. 

A five-year-old girl develops a severe headache. She takes the ice cream from the grocery cart and puts it against her head for relief. She has a brain tumor. She spends the next year in and out of the hospital. Finally, she has an uncontrollable seizure and dies. 

A two-week-old child is diagnosed with cancer. He spends the rest of his life in and out of the hospital. At age five he says to his mother "I can't do this any more." That night, he breathes his last breath. See section 11 and 12 of the 2012 Bioinitative Report for evidence of brain tumors and acoustic neuromas and childhood cancers (leukemia.) 

5. Children have a right to a good night's sleep. 
See the Bioinitiative Report section 13. Evidence for effects of low-intensity electromagnetic radiation on melatonin (the sleep hormone.) 

A four-year-old boy presents with his parents with a complaint of sleep difficulties. He hasn't slept for two years and climbs in his parents' bed every night, so they also have had poor sleep for two years and are exhausted. The evening before they came to see me, they gave their son some melatonin and it seemed to help. Knowing that EMF can lower melatonin, I suggested a two-week EMF remediation trial. (No Wi-Fi 12 hours at night, no cordless phone, and Stetzer filters to lower extremely low frequency EMF.) They followed my EMF remediation instructions and stopped the melatonin supplement. Within a few days the son and the parents were sleeping fine without a melatonin supplement. 

6. Children have a right to live, play and learn in locations that permit them to retain their fertility so that they may reproduce when they become adults. That is not the case today. Most schools have Wi-Fi and more. Young girls place laptops on their laps where non-ionizing radiation from the laptop can damage their future offspring as all their eggs are mere inches from the laptop. See section 18 of the 2012 Bioinitiative Report. Fertility and reproduction- effects of EMF. 

7. Children have a right to live play and learn in locations that permit them to grow up and have the ability to reproduce and have healthy children. 

A young woman with excellent health and good pre-natal care gives birth to a boy with a heart defect. No previous relatives on either side had a heart defect. During her pregnancy, she lived in a building across the street from a power substation. The light bulbs burst frequently in her 
apartment and needed to be replaced often. This is a sign of too much dirty electricity in the home. Too much dirty electricity (ELF) contributes to birth defects. See section 19 of the 2012 Bioinitiative Report. Fetal and neonatal effects of EMF. 

8. Children have a right to live, play and learn in a location that permits them the ability to speak. 

A 12-year-old boy comes to my office with his parents, who are asking for help with his aggressive behavior. He has also been diagnosed with autism and is unable to speak (non-verbal). They agree to a two-week EMF remediation trial. Within three days this young man said a complete sentence much to the disbelief of his mother and himself! His aggressive behaviors disappeared. See section 20 of the Bioinitiative Report. "Findings in autism consistent with EMF and RFR." 

Over 1% of America's children now have autism. And the numbers continue to rise. In addition to the pain and suffering these children and families experience, this problem alone threatens to bankrupt whole school systems at a time when we can least afford it. When I as a physician need to perform a potentially dangerous procedure on a child, such as a spinal tap, I need to explain why it is necessary and what the risks are. Then I need to get written consent from the parents and the parents have the right to refuse. Currently, we are performing large-scale experiments on America's children without informing children, or their parents, of the risk. Children and their parents have not given their consent, nor 
have they been given an option to opt out. See section 2, 3 and 4 of the 2012 Bioinitiative Report. "Statement of the problem, the existing public exposure standards and evidence for inadequacy of current standards." 

A nation that does not protect its children has no future. Please reevaluate the FCC Safety Guidelines for non-ionizing radiation. America's children have the right to sleep, speak, behave, learn and - as adults - to reproduce. 

Please don't take these from them. Please help America's children and America to have a future. 

Thank you for your time.

Dr Palevsky's Comments: Are Americans the only people in the world who are asleep at the wheel? Country after country seems to be doing what Canada was just successfully able to accomplish? Is American social, economic & political culture so distracting that we can't mobilize our collective efforts to know what our neighbors know across the border? Whenever I speak to Canadians, and people from other parts of the world, they often seem to know what's really going on in this country, much more so than our own people.

Each month, Dr Palevsky will be answering a hot topic question....
Question Corner



Dr Palevsky, I am constantly being told that the amount of mercury in vaccines is minor compared to the amount of mercury that I ingest when I eat fish such as tuna....and then I see articles like this one.......what is the truth?


Natural News tests flu vaccine for heavy metals, finds 25,000 times higher mercury level than EPA limit for water


Easy to think that a lower quantity of mercury exposure through injection is much less of a potential health problem than a higher exposure through oral ingestion from fish, only if quantity is the deciding and determining factor of toxicity. 

If we break down this thinking a little further, however, we see that the method of delivery of mercury is actually more toxic through injection because the body is exposed to 100% of the injected mercury, and has to manage all of this exposure. Whereas with exposure to mercury through oral ingestion, the bacteria, mucous layer, immune cells and lymph nodes in the intestines, are all present to trap and help eliminate part or all of the ingested mercury before it is able to pass freely into the bloodstream. Even the tiniest amount of injected mercury does not have a chance of being eliminated before it enters the bloodstream. 

In addition, even if the ingested mercury gets past the protective nature of the micro-flora, mucous layer, immune cells & lymph nodes in the intestines, and is absorbed into the bloodstream, the first pass of blood from the intestines goes through the liver, where some of the most intensive detoxification occurs in the body. The body, through the actions of the liver, now has a chance to remove more of the mercury that was missed in the intestines. Waste materials from the liver are then passed through the gall bladder into the bile, where they are then dumped back into the intestines for elimination. 

The body has all of these built-in mechanisms to help keep us safe from harm. We can potentially avoid the entry of some, or all, ingested toxic materials from getting into the blood, and then into the cells, tissues, and organs, knowing what mechanisms are at play to help keep us optimally well. 

All of these protective mechanisms are bypassed with the injection of the mercury directly into the blood stream. Besides, there are additional chemicals within the vaccines that allow for immediate entry of the vaccine heavy metals (mercury, aluminum) directly into the brain, crossing the blood brain barrier, and potentially injuring the nerve cells of the brain. 

I'll enjoy my serving of mercury-laden fish every so-often, in lieu of having the mercury directly injected into my bloodstream and brain, any time, thank you. And, I'll rely on the body's built-in mechanisms of protection, detoxification, and elimination of toxins and wastes from ingested materials to work to their most optimal function to keep me healthy, much more than I will on the reported protection [sic] you think you'll get from the injection of a flu vaccine.
