Holistic Child Health Newsletter 
May 2013


 

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

FOCUS AND FEATURED


Hybrid Flu, Created In Lab From Swine & Bird Influenza Genes, Can Go Airborne

Barbara Loe Fisher's comments from www.nvic.org:  Scientists with no boundaries and no accountability creating frankenviruses and relentlessly driving the hype about future influenza pandemics mostly caused by unsanitary factory farming, especially in China (think dead pigs in rivers). 
  
A bird flu vaccine was created years ago and the U.S. government gave both Novartis and GSK millions to build labs to do it. Now all that is required is a nasty influenza pandemic to get things rolling and money flowing and the mandates growing with calls for annual universal use of influenza vaccine by all citizens of the world.. In the U.S., it would be a great organizing tool to see just how well the militarized public health infrastructure created since 9/11 works and where it needs more fine tuning to crush remaining dissent.

The drug companies stand to make trillions every year and doctors working for state and federal health agencies would get the power they have wanted for so long. Neither industry nor government will have any legal accountability for the casualties that result if the "cure" turns out to be every bit as bad - or worse - than the disease.

"The leading causes are prematurity, birth complications and severe infections"

Dr. Palevsky's Comments: I wonder what the mortality rates of US newborns are if the mothers are not given epidurals, pitocin, and C-sections to deliver their babies. I also wonder what the mortality rates of US newborns are if the babies are not exposed to antibiotics in labor or vaccines on the first day of life. There's more to this story than just prematurity, birth complications, and severe infections.

Why Parents Should Leave Their Kids Alone

VACCINE VIEW
New Way to Fight Lies About Vaccines
Dr. Palevsky's Comments:   Any time there is a report of a cluster of children who come down with an infectious disease against which we have a vaccine, never will you see the pro-vaccine camp entertain the possibility that, 1) the vaccine failed, 2) the micro-organism may have mutated and the vaccine is no longer effective, 3) there was a large enough percentage of vaccinated children to support herd immunity so an outbreak should not have happened and does not make sense (maybe the concept of herd immunity does not make sense, either), 4) the unvaccinated children may have had nothing to do with the outbreak, and 5) there are scientific explanations, and other conditions at play that have nothing to do with children's vaccination status, that could shed light on why infectious diseases occur. 
 
Vaccines
What is even more puzzling, is the pro-vaccine camp considers themselves pro-science. If that were the case, then they would have the breadth of knowledge and perspective to take a step back, use scientific principles, and consider the myriad possibilities as to why infectious diseases occur, and what true adverse effects the vaccines are having on our children. But, if they were to do so, it would then open themselves up to being exposed to their own lies and propaganda about vaccine safety and effectiveness, and the state of current vaccine research. 

They ignore the fact that physicians who now hold a broader perspective about vaccines have had the same medical training and indoctrination they have had. We have read the scientific literature, and have weighed the risk/benefit ratio of vaccines and the infectious diseases, themselves. We have attempted to extricate ourselves, however, from the prejudices and biases, and have been able to see that there is a bigger picture to examine, that the scientific principles we were indoctrinated within medical school and medical training are no longer being used and applied to the current body of vaccine research, science and practice. Nonetheless, the propaganda in this article is being propagated by a force bigger than any one of us can imagine. Hopefully, there is still time for the real truth to emerge. 
 
End Religious Exemption

Dr Palevsky's comments: Jennifer Margulis, author of The Business of Baby......., says, "....this legislation is a good idea because parents should be informed as possible when making such decisions." Support for this bill is a bad idea, not a good idea. It forces parents to pay to hear a one-sided vaccine lecture by physicians who would now have the power to dictate whether or not he/she believes a parent can have a religious freedom to opt out of vaccines. The physician would also have the power to convince the parents that their worries, concerns, and beliefs about the lack of safety and efficacy of vaccines are unfounded. This bill, as it did in Washington State, has as its potential, the ability to remove parents' religious freedom. So much for the 1st Amendment of the Constitution, and the coming end to the religious exemption as we know it. Next up, the end to the philosophical exemption.  
 
 
Social Networks Play Key Role in Parents' Vaccination Decisions

QUESTION OF THE MONTH
Each month, Dr Palevsky will be answering a hot topic question....

 

 

 

 Q

 Do you agree with their assesment of milk? Is drinking milk really good for children?

  

  

A
I don't see any sound reason for humans to be drinking the breast milk of another animal once children have weaned from breast milk or formula, regardless of whether the milk is raw or pasteurized. I know people are going to find rationalizations and excuses as to why it's a good choice for their children. It just makes no sense, and is potentially more harmful than beneficial in most cases, and there are many reasons for that. But, here is one reason I think is important. Bottom line - the purpose of the breast milk of each animal is to specifically support and mature the immune and nervous systems of its young until it can fend for itself for food. The proteins, fats, carbohydrates, vitamins & minerals in the breast milk of cows, goats, and sheep are designed to maximally develop the brain function of their young. If humans want to give the specific nutrients to their young that will maximize their brain function capacity to parallel that of how the brains of cows, goats and sheep function, that's certainly their choice. But, I don't recommend it. We are seeing a regression in the molecular structure of the human brain, back to the forms that we used to see in more primitive human civilizations. And, we are seeing the regression of human brain function back to more primitive behavioral responses to the world. These regressions are contributing to human susceptibility to neurological diseases and dysfunction, and the human ingestion of the breast milk of other animals across several generations is playing a large role in this regression and susceptibility. Drink water, and eat food. Every other animal in the animal kingdom intuitively gets that, except humans.

UPCOMING EVENTS
Join Dr Palevsky for his NEW lecture:

Chronic Illness:
A Holistic Approach to Prevention & Treatment

 

 


Chronic illness in children has become an acceptable way of life, affecting more than 40% of US children. 1 in 6 children has some form of neuro-developmental delay, 1 in 10 children has asthma, an incidence rate that has tripled in the last 30 years, and US children have allergies at a rate higher than children anywhere else in the world. Most of these illnesses can be prevented, and many of them can be relieved without pharmaceutical medicines. In this 3-hour lecture, attendees will hear what dietary, lifestyle and medical decisions we can make to avoid the development of these illnesses, and safely treat them so our children can be more optimally well. Much of the lecture will focus on childhood asthma, allergies, eczema, and neuro-developmental delays, but the information is helpful for any parent or practitioner who cares for a child with a chronic illness.
