Holistic Child Health Newsletter 
August 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

Dinowitz Introduces Assembly Bill to 
End Religious Exemptions 

Discriminates Against Religious Minorities


Assemblymember Jeffrey Dinowitz, a democrat whose district is in the Northwest Bronx, has introduced an identical bill to S6017, State Senator Brad Hoylman's bill that will eliminate religious exemptions to vaccine mandates. 


Dinowitz's bill is so new that it has not yet been issued a number.


Dinowitz is quoted in the news site Capital New York, saying about parents who choose to not to vaccinate or selective vaccinate, "they have bought into the garbage that these vaccinations can cause autism. That's a lot of crap."


Read the rest of the article here:




Please click on the Take Action link (after clicking the link below), and send a message to your Assemblymember stating your opposition to Dinowitz's bill.


   Please give Assemblymember Dinowitz a call today and let him know politely that you disagree with him.

Jeffrey Dinowitz, 718-796-5345


     And please call Speaker of the Assembly Carl Heastie and let him know politely that you want him to oppose Dinowitz's bill.

Speaker Carl Heastie, 718-654-6539


     Contrary to Dinowitz's artfully expressed assertions, for many people mandatory vaccination is a violation of their religious beliefs, a fact that New York law has recognized and respected since vaccines were made mandatory to attend school. There are Mennonite Schools in New York where no students are vaccinated. Jehovah's Witnesses believe that vaccination should be the choice of the individual. Many Christian Scientists do not vaccinate. The religious exemption rate at Waldorf schools is also very high. Many Orthodox Jews have issues with vaccination. Other religious groups, including the Roman Catholic Church, have issues with the vaccines cultured on aborted fetal tissue. New York has a long and rich tradition of religious tolerance, Senator Hoylman and Assemblymember Dinowitz's bills reject this proud and wildly successful history.


     New York law clearly says, however, that affiliation with a religious group is irrelevant to a person's own religious beliefs, that is for each individual to decide, but Mr. Dinowitz's and Mr. Hoylman's bills are full-blown assaults on the First Amendment rights of New Yorkers. It appears that they both graduated from law school without considering the meaning of the first two clauses of the First Amendment: 

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof..." 

 Nor have either Hoylman or Dinowitz made any attempt to show how the fewer than 1% of New York students who have religious exemptions compromises public health.


    These bills further weaken all New Yorkers' Constitutional rights, and seek to make New York a less tolerant and less diverse place. It isn't the place of Senator Hoylman or Assemblymember Dinowitz to make healthcare decisions for all New Yorkers or interfere in the longstanding beliefs of religious minorities. America was founded expressly to protect those rights. It is a pity that these two elected officials clearly do not understand that.



A Bill Introduced in New York Threatens 


Call Albany TODAY!



  New York State Senator Brad Hoylman (D-Westside of Manhattan) just introduced a bill, S6017, that would eliminate religious exemptions from vaccine mandates in New York


If you want to retain this precious right you must get on the phone and get active


There are extremely powerful forces at work trying to give the vaccine industry unimpeded access to your children. 


     As yet there is no companion bill in the New York Assembly and no other Senators have signed on as co-sponsors. Mississippi and West Virginia were the only states that did not allow religious exemptions until California eliminated their personal belief exemption a few weeks ago. All other states allow religious exemptions, 18 allow exemptions for secular reasons. 


 The overwhelming majority of developed democracies in the world allows parents the final say in what is injected into their children's bodies, including Canada, Japan, Ireland, the UK, the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, Austria, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Iceland, etc.





 Please CLICK HERE to send a message to your State Senator and Assemblymember (we anticipate that an Assembly bill will be coming) stating your opposition to the bill.


 Please CALL the following legislators and let them know that you are opposed to this bill.


Senator Brad Hoylman, (212) 633-8052, (518) 455-2451


Senate Majority Leader John Flanagan, (631) 361-2154, (518) 455-2071


Senate Coalition Leader Jeffrey Klein, (718) 822-2049, (518) 455-3595


Speaker of the Assembly Carl Heastie, (718) 654-6539, (518) 455-3791


     There is no evidence that religious exemptions in New York are a barrier to achieving herd immunity, or increase disease rates. 


Senator Hoylman is proposing a profound violation of First Amendment and parental rights.


 Senator Hoylman also has a bill in the Senate S509 that would force all children in the state to get the human papilloma virus (HPV) vaccine.

Soybean Oil Is More Obesogenic and Diabetogenic than Coconut Oil and Fructose in Mouse: Potential Role for the Liver

Dr Palevsky's Comments:   I'm glad to see the results of this study. There are many problems with soybean oil. 1) More than likely, most of it is extracted from GMO soybeans, and sprayed with Roundup (glyphosate), 2) Soybean oil is predominantly an omega-6 polyunsaturated fat,  which will increase inflammation in the body (inflammation is often the underlying pathophysiology found in obesity), 3) As a polyunsaturated fat, it is unstable at room  temperature, and even more unstable when heated, thus increasing the 
oxidation levels in those who consume it. 

Other polyunsaturated oils, similar to soybean oil that are likely to have the same damaging health effects on the body are, vegetable oil, corn oil, safflower oil, and sunflower oil. Best to avoid these oils in your diet, and focus on consuming expeller or cold-pressed coconut oil, olive oil, grapeseed oil, ghee, and grass-fed butter.

Unacceptable Levels - 
A Film About Chemicals  in our Bodies, and How They Got There....

Unacceptable Levels examines the results of the chemical revolution of the 1940s through the eyes of affable filmmaker Ed Brown, a father seeking to understand the world in which he and his wife are raising their children. To create this debut documentary, one man and his camera traveled extensively to find and interview top minds in the fields of science, advocacy, and law. Weaving their testimonies into a compelling narrative, Brown presents us with the story of how the chemical revolution brought us to where we are, and of where, if we're not vigilant, it may take us.
