Holistic Child Health Newsletter 
October 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 CDC, NIH & Bill Gates Own the Patents On Existing Ebola & Related Vaccines: Mandatory Vaccinations Are Near
Dr. Palevsky's Comments: Please read the comments below the article. More on the long-standing patent of an Ebola vaccine.......

How Was This Not Planned in Advance? Ebola Vaccine Magically Ready for Human Trials in Weeks, Not Years
Dr Palevsky's Comments: 
How long has the Ebola 'crisis' been in effect? How long does it usually take to go through the process of manufacturing a vaccine and bringing it to market? I'd say something doesn't seem right, here........I'll let you decide...

Pertussis Cases are Reportedly On the Rise - Why?

Dr Palevsky's Comments: The first article describes how pertussis cases are on the rise since 1976, but leaves out any mention of corresponding vaccination rates.

The second article describes how the vaccination rates remain high in this country, specifically mentioning the 95% vaccination rates for diphtheria, pertussis, & tetanus.

In summary, pertussis cases are increasing, vaccination rates for pertussis are 95%, and somehow the unvaccinated cases are responsible for this rise in cases of pertussis?

One hand does not seem to know what the other hand is doing......

Cases of pertussis increased in the US since 1976, (4083 cases in 1992, 6586 in 1993, 4617 in 1994) , and then (6564 cases in 1997, 7405 in 1998, 7298 in 1999, 7867 in 2000), the acellular pertussis vaccine was introduced in 1997. 

At that time, pertussis vaccination rates were not as high as they are today, yet the number of cases of pertussis continued to increase even as the percentage of children vaccinated against pertussis, increased. One needs to be mindful of the fact that the number of cases of pertussis since 1976 may actually be even higher than what has been reported, because physicians may not have been testing for it, or believing that patients could have had clinical pertussis since a majority was already vaccinated. 

In addition, pertussis illnesses would have been missed if people had the disease, but did not present with the classic whoop, and instead, merely presented with an upper respiratory illness and a mild cough. This is not out the realm of possibility with a pertussis illness.

In the 1995 MMWR CDC report listed above,, of 10,989 patients for whom data about vaccination status were available, 6876 (63%) had received fewer than three doses. This means, however, that 37% of those patients who developed cases of pertussis had received 3 or MORE doses, and got pertussis, anyway. Two doses of pertussis have been found to be more than adequately protective, so it's not clear how many of the 6876 (63%) had received 2 doses, and may have been adequately protected, yet got pertussis anyway. Nonetheless, 37% of 10,989 patients developing pertussis, having received 3 or more doses of the whole cellular pertussis vaccine, is not a good coverage rate.

In the 1995 MMWR CDC report, of 3184 patients aged 7 months-4 years for whom vaccination status was known, 725 (23%) had received no doses, 714 (22%) had received one or two doses, and 1745 (55%) had received three or more doses. With 55% having received three or more doses, and two doses still being somewhat protective, this does not suggest good protection by the vaccine, either.

In the 1995 MMWR CDC report, from 1992 through the second quarter of 1994, among children 19-35 months, vaccination coverage with three or more doses of DPT or DT was 83% for 1992, 88% for 1993, 87% for the first quarter of 1994, and 90% for the second quarter of 1994. Vaccination coverage with four or more doses of DPT or DT was 59% in 1992, 72% in 1993, 67% in the first quarter of 1994, and 70% for the second quarter of 1994. At the time, we believed these were more than adequate vaccination rates, boasting how well we were doing to maintain high vaccination rates in the name of herd immunity. 

At the time of the introduction of the acellular pertussis vaccine, it was only being used intermittently as a 4th or 5th DTaP vaccine in the series, for children who had already received the whole-cell pertussis vaccine (DTP) for the first 3 vaccines in the series, and did not become part of the full routine vaccination schedule starting at 2 months, until later in the 1990's/early in the 2000's. Thus, pertussis rates were increasing before the full-scale introduction of the acellular pertussis vaccine AND while pertussis vaccination rates were also increasing.

Perhaps, just perhaps, either the vaccine doesn't work, and/or, the pertussis bacteria have mutated, giving us new strains no longer covered by the vaccine, along with the probability that other organisms are leading to clinical presentations that are similar, but not exactly the same as, pertussis.........( the Red Book, 2003 edition states, "pertussis immunity is not absolute and immunization may not prevent infection." 

From Autism Action Network: 

A federal court in Brooklyn will hear oral arguments today (October 7th) in a case that may put in jeopardy every religious exemption from vaccine mandates in the State of New York. The court is hearing an appeal of a June decision in a case brought by the Check family of Staten Island. In brief, Dina Check attended pre-school for two years with a religious exemption in place. When Dina transferred to kindergarten her religious exemption was revoked by the New York City Departments of Health and Education. The lower court upheld the City's refusal to honor the existing exemption.

If the lower court's decision is upheld, all existing religious exemptions from vaccine mandates in New York State may be revoked on a whim of a school district employee. New York City, however, is enforcing an illegal quota, limiting exemptions to 1.2% of all students. Principals of schools are threatened by the city with fines if they exceed the quota. Religious exemptions for all residents of New York city are directly threatened.

For people in NYC and NYC only, Mayor Bill de Blasio could stop this with a phone call. Please call 311 and ask for the Mayor's office, and politely let the staffer know that you want New York City to get out of our personal lives.

For everybody in New York State, please call your Assemblymember and State Senator and politely let them know that you want them to co-sponsor Assembly bill A6359 and Senate bill S3934 which would provide New Yorkers parents the final say into what is injected into our children's bodies.

In 19 States, where more than half of the American population live, parents may opt out for any reason they choose, these states include California, Texas, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Vermont and more than a dozen others.

Most other rich countries in the world adhere to this standard including Canada, Japan, The United Kingdom, Sweden, Denmark, Ireland, Israel, etc.

Fifteen states, including Connecticut, allow automatic exemptions when parents sign state provided forms.

Thirteen states, including New Jersey, allow automatic exemptions when parents submit a letter.

ONLY New York allows low-level public employees to force US citizens to defend their religious beliefs.

It is beyond time to stop this ongoing violation of our Constitutional rights that is unique to New York state.

Interview with Dr. Shiv. Chopra
Microbiologist, Vaccination Researcher & Specialist, Former Senior Scientific Advisor on Vaccinations for Health Canada

Dr Palevsky's Comments:  "I didn't know the harm vaccines could do. I think many parents are like me - they don't know either, I thought vaccines would keep me and my children safe and healthy. That's what my doctor told me. I never imagined that a vaccine could do this to my daughter. My doctor never told me the risks. No one else did either. I was never shown anything showing potential side effects of vaccines. If you choose to vaccinate you had better be very comfortable about the need for each vaccine, because every time you vaccinate your child, there is a risk of severe injury and death. It is crucial that parents understand what is at stake and that the choice is theirs to make. I am not telling you not to vaccinate. I am telling you that the people who pressure you to vaccinate don't own the consequences. Only you, as parents do."
It seems this girl also received the vaccine called coincidence, as well.......

High Levels of Fungicide Found in Pregnant Women Living Near Banana Plantations
Dr Palevsky's Comments: And, what are the fungicide levels in the children and adults after they consume these bananas in the United States? Often, as you can see from the picture in the article, the bananas are picked early, and not allowed to ripen on the vine. The majority of the nutrients develop in the bananas (and in any other fruit and vegetable, for that matter) during the time of ripening on the vine. So, what you get is a less-than-optimal nutritious food. But, don't fret, the banana distributors help you out with this by injecting a ripening agent into almost all non-organic bananas, (and maybe some of the organic bananas), before they are shipped to the United States for sale. If you can find local, organic produce, and eat more in line with what grows in season, you will probably be closer to buying safer foods. For north easterners, here's a guide for eating food local and in-season. I'm sure there are similar charts for other parts of the country, and in other parts of the world.

Dr Palevsky's Comments:
There certainly are some merits to this approach to living, especially the part about cutting out the processed flour products and sugars, adopting the primal sleep regimen, and getting the kids outside and playing more. Ironically, the photograph of Michelle Tam shows her wearing her amber glasses to block the blue-spectrum light that she believes interferes with her circadian rhythms, while she exposes her legs and reproductive organs to the electromagnetic field (EMF) emissions from the apple computer sitting on her lap...........It's a process for all of us.

Never-Before-Seen-Evidence points to genetically engineered foods as a major contributor to rising disease rates in the US population, especially among children. Gastrointestinal disorders, allergies, inflammatory diseases, and infertility are just some of the problems implicated in humans, pets, livestock, and lab animals that eat genetically modified soybeans and corn.

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


"It is so overwhelming to be a mother. I tried with every cell in my body to have no medical interventions, but my vulnerability and lack of support let me to pitocin and an epidural. Now, as a mom of an almost 5 month old, I'm reading that my baby should not be on her back, I hold her too much etc. I agree with most of this but am very confused. My baby never showed signs of ever being happy on her tummy. And I feel like holding her is more important than leaving her screaming on the floor on her stomach. Please help me understand what is going on."


When babies are born exposed to epidural medications, and an augmentation of the birthing process with pitocin, whether via C-section or vaginally, their nervous systems have taken a pounding.  Often, this pounding constricts and tenses the musculature in their head, neck, and spine. This is one of the main reasons babies cry a lot on their tummies. It's hurts too much to be in that position. 

Thankfully, my colleagues in the fields of chiropractic, osteopathy, and cranial sacral therapy, can assist these babies into having much more flexible and relaxed nervous systems, making them much more able to tolerate positioning on their tummies......
