|Holistic Child Health Newsletter
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
|Three Important Articles on Fukushima Radiation Effects.....
Breaking News: Fukushima Radiation Affecting Americans And There's No Way To Stop It
Dr Palevsky's Comments: The authors mention that up to 8% of children have a food allergy. I believe the number of children with food allergies is much more than 8%, if you take into consideration that the respiratory and skin allergies mentioned in this link might also be due to food allergy and/or sensitivity responses. http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/data/databriefs/db121.htm
There's no doubt that eating real food decreases the probability of food reactions. It has fewer chemicals, additives, and colorings, and greater caloric availability and fresher ingredients. Real food is alive. Processed food has little to no vital force. In addition, processed food is often stripped of its value, and devoid of any real nutrients and fiber.
But, this study would have been even more interesting if they noted whether the incidence of food allergies differed when comparing vaccinated and unvaccinated children. The most common food allergens in children are casein, soy, eggs, peanuts, corn, and gluten. Most of the proteins of these foods are known and/or suspected to be part of the final vaccine products.
Basic Immunology 101 class teaches us that the injection of a protein into the body, especially in the context of an adjuvant, will cause the body to see it as an enemy and mount an immune response against it. As a result, any subsequent introduction of that food protein into the body will cause the immune system to mount an immune response against it once it enters the body through the mouth, the airway, or onto the skin. The symptoms of that immune response against that food exposure is what we call a food allergy or sensitivity.
The Bad Seed: The Health Risks of Genetically Modified Corn
Dr Palevsky's Comments: I stopped eating corn 3 months ago, knowing I had an allergy, and an addictive-like response to it when I ate corn chips (I'd finish a whole bag of organic corn chips at one sitting, or eat a few baskets of corn chips at a Mexican restaurant before the meal came. I just couldn't stop shoveling them in). Since then, I've noticed so many improvements in my health - in my skin, my moods, my sleep, my intestines, and my ability to lose weight. If and when I eat animal products, I try to eat grass-fed products, and will not eat an egg from a conventionally raised chicken, knowing that the chickens are routinely fed corn. I've never consumed corn syrup or high fructose corn syrup, but for those who do, it's just another added toxin for your body. I'm glad to see this article in print. While I miss my corn chips and guacamole, I know the side effects are not worth it, and I'm afraid to say that most organic corn is probably contaminated with GMO corn, as well. The health of our food supply is seriously compromised. If only we all had our own gardens from which we could grow our own foods and eat them right out of the ground......Find a CSA (community supported agriculture - http://www.localharvest.org/csa/) near you, or frequent your local farmer's markets, and eat locally grown, fresh food, not this GMO garbage they keep selling to us as real food. It's toxic. Don't be fooled by packages that say "all natural." These foods are more than likely to be GMO foods, as well.

6 Reasons Why Eggs Are The Healthiest Food on The Planet
Dr Palevsky's Comments: Yes, I agree with this. There are, however, a number of caveats. 1) Don't buy conventional eggs. These eggs come from chickens that are abused, living in cramped quarters, poorly fed, and often, injected with hormones, antibiotics, and who knows what else. There is nothing healthy about these eggs, at all, and, they are more likely to cause adverse health effects, than not. 2) Buy pasture-fed eggs. Get to know your local farmers. Speak to them about how they raise their chickens, and what they feed them. Make sure you're eating eggs that have yolks that are deep yellow to orange. Most conventional eggs are pale yellow, and that does not bode well for your health if you eat them. The first time I ever saw a 'real' egg was when I was in Europe more than 25 years ago. I was afraid to eat it because the yolk was so deeply orange. I had never seen anything like it in the States. Little did I know that the yolk was supposed to be that color, and that I was being served an extremely healthy egg. Those chickens were being fed and raised properly and humanely. 3) Be careful of a possible egg sensitivity and/or allergy, especially if you've been injected with the MMR vaccine and/or the flu vaccine. Egg sensitivities can be very subtle, and often appear as odd symptoms in children and adults. Immune reactions to eggs do not have to appear as anaphylactic symptoms, or positive IgE antibodies on conventional allergy blood tests, for people to have adverse health reactions to eggs when they eat them. The best way to test for egg sensitivities is to remove the eggs from your diet for a month, and then eat them and see if any symptoms disappeared upon removing them, and then reappeared once you reintroduced them. If you're not a vegan or vegetarian, or at least are an ovo-vegetarian, eggs are a good food. 4) The safest way to eat an egg is either soft or hard-boiled, or, believe it or not, fried. Fried eggs allow you to maintain the looseness and runniness of the yolk. The fats in the yolk do not directly receive the heat of the flame. Directly heating the yolk of the egg, either in scrambled eggs or in an omelet, increase the potential for creating oxidized fats which, when consumed, increase inflammation in the body. It's important to be careful not to place too much heat on fats in any food, because of the potential for these fats to become oxidized and, therefore, cause harm to the body. Perhaps enjoy a frittata, where the eggs are baked, instead of having the yolk directly heated in the skillet? And, oh, by the way, ditch the teflon pans.........
Israel Starting Inoculation Drive to Prevent Polio Spread
Dr. Palevsky's Comments: Interesting. They found the polio virus in waste water, and now they're going to give a polio vaccine to 200,000 children, who have previously received the polio vaccine. What they don't tell you is the polio virus was found in the waste water due to the widespread use of the oral polio vaccine, the very
vaccine they will be using to vaccinate 200,000 children.
It doesn't matter that the children have already been vaccinated, they're going to be used as guinea pigs to 'protect' the adults around them from the potential of a polio illness. It's not protection. It's quite the opposite of protection.
How did the virus end up in the sewage system? Because people who were previously vaccinated with the oral polio vaccine eliminated the polio virus through their stools. The majority of cases of paralytic polio in the world happen as a result of the worldwide use of the oral polio vaccine, OPV, and not from a wild-type real polio virus. These cases of paralytic polio occur through the spread of the virus into the sewage systems, and subsequent exposure through people's ingestion of contaminated food and water. The polio virus gets recycled into the community and causes illness in those people who are susceptible to the load of polio viruses to which they become exposed, thus leading to their disease. The more susceptible people are those who usually live in poverty, who are malnourished, and who often live with no clean running water or appropriate sewer systems.
By the way, the OPV was banned from use in the US in 2000 because it was causing too many cases of paralytic polio, but this vaccine is still used most everywhere else in the world. The injected polio vaccine, IPV, is what is currently used in the US.
So, the polio virus is now a public health threat in Israel due to the discovery of the polio virus in the wastewater. As a solution, they're going to use the oral polio vaccine to thwart the polio virus from potentially causing disease, despite the fact that the polio virus is present in the wastewater because of the use of the oral polio vaccine, in the first place. They're going to thwart potential polio disease by spreading the virus through vaccination of 200,000 children, who will then eliminate more of the virus into the sewage system, potentially leading to more people being exposed to the virus, and potentially causing unnecessary cases of paralytic polio, which was the problem with the use of the oral polio vaccine in the first place, just so they can manufacture more of a reason to vaccinate more people. Make sense?
In addition, the authorities state, "the purpose of the extra vaccine is to pass the weakened virus to adults with whom the children come into contact who may have not been previously vaccinated." What this statement means is, vaccination of 200,000 children with the oral polio virus vaccine will spread the virus to other people, and potentially infect them. In the author's minds, however, the children will only be passing the weakened virus to adults who may not have been vaccinated. But, no consideration is taken into account as to whether the use of this vaccine will create more polio illnesses. No consideration is taken into the health and/or vulnerability of those who will be living in or around the 200,000 children who will be vaccinated.
They soften the blow by saying it is a weakened virus. There's no such thing as a weakened virus. Once the RNA of the polio virus become incorporated into the genetic mechanisms of human cells, they can easily be replicated, spread throughout a population, and cause disease. The vaccination of these children will unnecessarily expose humans who come into contact with these children to doses of polio viruses that could potentially cause actual cases of paralytic polio.
What they are also saying is, adults who may not have been previously vaccinated with the polio vaccine are at risk for developing polio because without having been previously vaccinated, they could not have possibly been previously exposed to the polio virus. In other words, if the adults haven't had a polio illness, or haven't been vaccinated against polio, they would not have had any exposure to the polio virus. This is incomplete, and mostly inaccurate.
The adults with whom the children come into contact do not need to have been previously vaccinated or infected with a polio virus, to have been exposed to the polio virus. Exposure to the polio virus can happen without being exposed to someone who has the polio illness. Exposure to the polio virus can already have occurred in most of these adults, without them having had prior vaccination, as well. And, exposure to the polio virus can happen in humans without coming down with the actual polio illness, itself. In all likelihood, since humans are the natural host of the polio virus, most humans are already carrying the genetic material that codes for the polio viruses, without even knowing it.
One of the most fundamentally flawed teachings about infectious illnesses and vaccinations, is that without the presence of an active polio illness, it is believed there is no human exposure to the polio virus. This couldn't be further from the truth. To take the flawed thinking another step, we are taught that through the vaccination program we can institute a pre-emptive strike, through the use of vaccines, to expose humans to their first encounter with the polio viruses, which will serve to protect them from a polio illness, and prepare them should they eventually be exposed to the polio virus from someone who has the active illness.
Again, as the false line of thinking goes, exposure to the polio virus only happens when a person comes into contact with someone who has an active polio illness. And, therefore, the polio vaccine will preemptively expose you to the virus and give you some form of protection should you be exposed at some point in your life to the real viral illness. This convoluted, scientifically inaccurate and incomplete thinking is so prominent, and it is a good way to steer people away from the more obvious fact that the use of the oral polio vaccine is the most common way to expose people to the polio virus, and potentially incite an outbreak of polio illnesses, simply to necessitate another round of vaccinations.
And, to make matters worse, this pre-emptive strike through human exposure to the polio virus through vaccination is supposed to give humans antibody protection against the polio virus, rendering them safe from the polio illness should they then be exposed to a real polio illness. Read on........
The polio virus is endemic to the human host. Humans can have the genetic material of the polio viruses embedded into their own genetic material without even knowing it, and without knowingly being infected by them. Exposure to the polio virus has probably already happened for most humans. Besides, 98-99% of polio illnesses present as simple stomach flus, and most often, people who have these stomach flus don't even realize the virus that gave them a self-limited course of vomiting and diarrhea may have been caused by a polio virus. The remaining 1-2% of polio illnesses may go on to develop paralysis, but in 98-99% of these cases, the paralysis resolves within 24 hours. Permanent paralytic polio is very rare, unless you've been poisoned by the oral polio vaccine, or other toxins that are responsible for the illnesses we have been told are a result of a polio virus, http://www.westonaprice.org/environmental-toxins/pesticides-and-polio
More importantly, however, humans can be protected from getting a polio illness even without having an antibody to the polio viruses. That's right. Immune protection from the polio viruses can happen, and most often does happen, without the presence of antibodies. In fact, even with the presence of antibodies, we may still not be effectively protected from getting the polio illness.
According to Nelson's Textbook of Pediatrics, 15th Edition, "The absence of measurable antibody may not mean the individual is unprotected." You can be protected from an infectious illness like polio without even having antibody levels to the polio viruses in your bloodstream. There are other mechanisms in our immune systems that play a role in helping us to maintain protection from infectious illnesses like polio, without involving antibodies to do the job.
It is also stated in Nelson's Textbook of Pediatrics, 15th Edition that, "In contrast, the presence of antibodies alone is not sufficient to ensure clinical protection after administering some vaccines and toxoids." So, even if you are vaccinated against polio, and even if you develop antibodies against the 3 polio viruses, that antibody may not be sufficient to protect you from getting the clinical disease, especially if you are exposed to an overwhelming load of polio virus through the oral polio vaccine. Protection from disease can happen without antibody production. How many people are already protected from the polio illness without having been vaccinated, and without having been knowingly exposed to someone who has a polio illness?
So, how effective can a polio vaccine be if we expose 200,000 children to a load of polio viruses through the oral polio vaccine, raising the likelihood of causing an outbreak of polio illness through increased delivery of the viruses to the community? The effectiveness of a vaccine is defined as the ability of a vaccine to reduce the incidence of disease in a population.
How effective can this new vaccine program be if this new potential outbreak will inevitably happen as the children eliminate the polio viruses through their stools into the sewer system, potentially igniting an overload of polio virus exposure to people who may or may not be able to handle the new load of virus exposure once they ingest them through their food and water?
How effective can this new polio vaccine program be if the people who ingest this new load of polio viruses have already been exposed to the viruses in the past, either through illness or through vaccination, or due to an innate presence of the viruses already embedded and laying dormant in their genetic codes, while not knowing their own susceptibility to being overwhelmed by this new viral load, ultimately exposing them to something that could make them sick, when they weren't sick, or necessarily vulnerable, to begin with?
How effective can this new vaccine program be when this new round of polio vaccine will potentially cause these children to produce antibodies to the polio viruses, against which they have already been vaccinated in the past, potentially overloading these children with a new exposure, without knowing how susceptible these children might be to being overcome by this new viral load?
Finally, how effective can this new vaccine policy be if the antibodies these children, and the newly exposed adults, may have from previous polio vaccinations, or from previous exposures, or from this new round of vaccinations, may not even protect them from coming down with the polio illness, itself?
Why don't they just clean up the sewage and water system, like they did in the mid-20th century in the US, effectively reducing the incidence, morbidity and mortality from polio viral infections....Or, simply, stop using the oral polio vaccine...?

Australian Prime Minister Hits No-Vax Parents Where it Hurts
Autism Epidemic Linked to Epidemic of Vaccine Induced Diabetes
Dr Palevsky's Comments: In 2008, Barbara Loe Fisher published a small, well researched book entitled, "Vaccines, Autism & Chronic Inflammation: The New Epidemic," where she very carefully lays out the clear, scientific evidence that vaccines have been a major contributor to t
he unprecedented epidemic of chronic inflammatory disorders now plaguing populations around the world, of which autism is one manifestation. With continued mandatory vaccine schedules, and attempts by authorities in government and the medical profession to remove medical, religious and philosophical exemptions in every state, the majority of people in this country are going to be suffering from chronic inflammatory conditions in no time at all.
Premature ovarian failure 3years after menarche in a 16-year-old girl following human papillomavirus vaccination
Dr Palevsky's Comments:
Two of the known major ingredients in the HPV
vaccine are aluminum and polysorbate-80.
Aluminum is a neurotoxin and a cellular toxin, and binds pretty tightly to polysorbate 80. Polysorbate 80 is an emulsifier and, as such, can enter any cell membrane because of its lipid moiety, regardless of the condition of the cell membranes.
Pharmaceutical companies utilize polysorbate-80 in their drug manufacturing to help with the transmission of pharmaceuticals across the blood brain barrier,
BBB. They understand how protective the BBB
is against allowing blood contents to
enter the brain, and have found a way to bypass the BBB
to enhance drug entry into the brain by attaching the drugs
Nonetheless, the polysorbate-80 has free reign to pass through the cell membranes of any of the cells in the body, not just in the brain, and can take with it anything that is fat soluble in the vaccines, or anything in the blood that is fat soluble that can attach itself to the polysorbate-80 and travel along through the cell membranes into the cells, including HPV contaminants. In 2011, a scientist in Connecticut named Dr. Sin Hang Lee at Milford Hospital assayed 13 HPV vaccines from around the world and found that each one of the vaccines contained human papilloma virus contaminants. http://sanevax.org/gardasil-contains-hpv-dna-bound-to-insoluble-aluminum-adjuvant-a-new-chemical-with-untested-toxicity/.
Vaccine manufacturers of the HPV vaccine had previously stated in their package inserts that the vaccine was free of any human papilloma virus particles. This, however, was not the case when the vaccines were assayed. And, the vaccine manufacturers had coincidentally removed this statement from the package inserts around the same time the assays were completed. Many have tried to downplay and minimize any significance that the presence of foreign HPV viral DNA could have on the health of those who are vaccinated with any of the HPV vaccines.
But, downplaying the role, without science to back up its believed inconsequential effects once the DNA is injected into the body, doesn't make its role inconsequential. It just makes its role unknown. Until the science is done to evaluate the effects of injecting foreign HPV viral DNA on the immune and nervous systems of those who receive it, there is as much of a possible consequential outcome, as there is an inconsequential one.
If the HPV viral DNA becomes bound to the polysorbate-80 and aluminum, and this moiety enters the cells of the body, we have no idea how, or to what extent, this exposure can affect cellular and, more specifically, DNA function. No telling where this moiety lands in the body, and whether or not on a micro- or macro-molecular level, it imparts any damage to the life and function of the cells it enters.
1) Did the polysorbate 80 enter the ovaries, with attached blood contents that don't normally enter the cells, causing damage to the ovarian cells?
2) Did the polysorbate 80, along with the aluminum, for whatever reason, specifically target the ovaries, effectively destroying them?
3) Did the polysorbate 80, along with the aluminum and HPV virus, all enter the ovaries, and wipe them out, leading to premature ovarian failure?
4) Could the action of aluminum on the ovaries be enough to explain this clinical picture?
5) Was the vaccine contaminated with HPV viruses? Or, other contaminants, enough to wipe out the ovaries?
6) Could the injected HPV virus contaminants have specifically targeted the ovaries, for some unknown reason, become embedded in the genetic code of the ovarian cells, turned on its own replication process or the replication process of other viral codes already embedded in the human genome, infected the ovaries, and effectively wiped them out?
It's certainly possible there are underlying medical issues in this girl, of which we are not aware, that might give us more information into her susceptibility to such a clinical outcome. Nonetheless, we don't know the answers to any of these questions, despite multiple reports supporting the fact that the HPV vaccine is supposedly safe.
How this vaccine could have caused this? We have the medical hypotheses, but not the confirmed medical research to explain it.
See related question in Q&A section below......
Each month, Dr Palevsky will be answering a hot topic question....
Premature ovarian failure 3years after menarche in a 16-year-old girl
following human papillomavirus vaccination
Why do the manufactures of the HPV vaccine want the vaccine to cross
the blood-brain barrier?
Surely that can only be harmful?
One can question why polysorbate-80 is in the vaccines if it serves to potentially transport vaccine materials across the blood-brain-barrier. After all, what vaccine materials need to enter the brain? The obvious answer is, none. I've heard people ask if the polysorbate-80 is in the vaccines intentionally, used as part of a medical experiment on the human race, like we heard about during World War II.
One in 6 children has some form of neuro-developmental disability, and adult onset neuro-degenerative diseases are on the rise, so clearly, something very wrong is happening to the human brain. It's a logical question to ask, therefore, is the polysorbate-80 used in vaccines to purposely cause harm rather than help the greater good, as part of a grand scheme to weaken and debilitate the human race?
But, when people ask this question, the possibility of this being true is so inconceivable to most, and such a preposterous, cynical distortion of what people can accept as true because, "they would never do that," and "how dare anyone question the sanctity of vaccines," that the ones asking this question are often accused of being conspiracy theorists, who are then ostracized and discounted for their extremism. The discussion about this issue, therefore, is so easily and conveniently, dismissed. The scientific basis for asking this question, however, makes complete sense.
Of course, when something so blatantly obvious, and so blatantly wrong is exposed, it's much easier for the naysayers to attack the people asking the question, and deflect from the science, rather than face the real issue at hand. It has been reported that polysorbate-80 is in the vaccines to help disperse vaccine material from the injection site so it travels all over the body. They just don't tell you that one of the possible places for vaccine materials attached to polysorbate-80 to be dispersed to, is the brain, and the inner workings of just about any cell of the body.
But, no study has been designed to test whether the polysorbate-80 is, in part, acting to debilitate the central nervous system, and cellular functions all over the body. We just keep on adding more vaccines to the schedule that contain polysorbate-80, and we keep on seeing increasing numbers of children and adults with debilitating, chronic, inflammatory conditions in every part of their bodies........
