Holistic Child Health Newsletter 
April 2015 (Part 2 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

Albany Trying to Make Meningococcal Shots Mandatory Again 
Call Albany Now!

   From Autism Action Network


If it is springtime then it is time for Albany politicians flush with cash from drug companies to try and force more vaccines into our children.  There are several bills right now seeking to increase the number of mandatory shots required to go to school in New York. The first is a bill that would require meningitis vaccines for all sixth graders and eleventh graders in the state, Assembly Bill A791A introduced by Aileen Gunther and S4324 introduced by Kemp Hannon. 


We need to stop this bill. 


This bill serves utterly no public health goal because it would result in more students in New York getting killed or injured from the vaccine than from the strains of meningitis which the vaccine claims to prevent.


The last time the legislature tried to make meningococcal shots mandatory in New York was 2011. In 2011 there were 7 cases of meningitis in the age groups covered by the proposed law. The vaccine does not protect against the B strain of meningitis that makes up about 30% of infections. And the vaccine manufacturer claims the vaccine is 85% effective. Do the math, 7 x .3 x .85 = 4 cases prevented in the best-case scenario.


According to the package insert about 1% of vaccine recipients in the affected age group suffer "serious adverse" reactions to the shot. With an estimated 300,000 shots per year required by the proposed law that yields an estimate 3,000 serious adverse reactions annually to prevent a potential 4 cases of meningitis.


Each shot cost approximately $115 combined with $50 administration fee. the cost would be $165 x 300,000 = $49,500,00. Nearly $50 million and 3,000 serious adverse reactions to prevent 4 cases of meningitis. This is just stupid public health policy.


PLEASE CALL  Assemblymember Aileen Gunther and Senator Kemp Hannon's offices and politely explain why this is a really bad idea for both public health and the taxpayers' finances and ask them to scrap the bill. And remind them that any parent who wants to get this shot for their child is free to do so.


And please click  HERE  to send a message to your State Senator and Assemblymember asking them to oppose this bill.

How To Detox From Fluoride


Dr Palevsky's Comments:  Iodine supplementation is important not only to flush out fluoride, but to help remove chlorine and bromines from the body, as well. I recommend that people consume safe and healthy food options mentioned in the article. But, if supplementing with iodine, I prefer recommending a broad-based mineral supplement that contains iodine. Make sure, however, if using Humic and/or Fulvic minerals, that you use filtered water that does not contain chlorine......

'Pediatricians Don't Read the Science;' Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Says Autism Linked to Mercury in Vaccines
Dr Palevsky's Comments:  The vaccines that used to contain high amounts of Thimerosal, DaPT, HIB and Hep B, still have trace amounts of Thimerosal. It used to be listed in the vaccine package inserts as, "trace amounts of Thimerosal," starting around 2003, and then the listing  in the package inserts disappeared. But, the presence of the Thimerosal did not disappear. It is still in the regular vaccine schedule. Add this trace amount of Thimerosal to the large amount of aluminum in the DaPT, HIB Hep B, and combination vaccines, and you have a potent cocktail designed to destroy brain neurons, and other cells and mitochondria all over the body. 

The flu vaccine for the obstetric and pediatric populations also contains the same amount of thimerosal that the DaPT, HIB and Hep B vaccines used to contain, before the American Academy of Pediatrics, in 1999, believed it was a good idea to remove thimerosal from vaccines. The AAP, however, claimed there was no major reason to believe Thimerosal in vaccines was a health concern, but believed it was a good idea to remove it, anyway.  

Nonetheless, the AAP made this recommendation in 1999, even though they were aware of the findings from the vaccine safety data link (VSDL), to be presented at the Simpson Conference in June 2000, showing a statistically significant increase in neurodevelopmental disabilities in children given Thimerosal-containing vaccines, compared to those given vaccines without Thimerosal.

Dr Palevsky's Comments: The safest, and only active ingredient that should be used with sunscreens, is zinc oxide. See as the most up-to-date site for safer products. Of course, make sure to get some sun early in the day, without sunscreen, to give your body the proper vitamin D that it needs to maintain good immune health. For the techies out there, take a look at the app, D-minder, to assist you in calculating how much sun exposure you may need, at what time of day, depending on where you are in the world, to obtain the necessary sun sources of vitamin D.

Fourth in a Series of Five Lectures

with Dr Larry Palevsky




FRIDAY, MAY 15, 2015 

7pm to 9pm


In consideration of the philosophy of today's conventional medical practice, and of the beliefs of our current dominant cultural norms, we are taught to view symptoms of acute illnesses in children as something bad and dangerous.

Parents are taught to believe that symptoms and childhood illnesses can and should be avoided, suppressed and stopped at all costs, with the use of over-the-counter medicines, antibiotics, pharmaceutical drugs, and vaccines. Parents are also made to fear the worst-case scenario each time their children get sick, or when they choose to not vaccinate their children.


In this lecture, attendees will begin to understand why children must experience their symptoms and illnesses as a necessary rite of passage, that allows their immune and nervous systems to grow, mature, and develop. Attendees will also learn that the expression of these symptoms is not necessarily caused by bacteria and viruses. Instead, these symptoms and illnesses occur as a sign our children are healthy; that their bodies are working to bring to the surface, and cleanse, any accumulation of wastes from deep inside, perhaps even with the aid of bacteria and viruses.


You will come to understand that we may be harming children with the constant use of over-the-counter medications, antibiotics, drugs and vaccines, that treat and suppress common and necessary childhood symptoms and illnesses. You will also come to learn that it is the use of this dominant treatment approach that drives wastes deeper into our children's bodies, directly contributing to the development of chronic childhood illnesses. Attendees will hear about what contributes to the excess accumulation of wastes in our children, and what they can do to allow these wastes to be safely removed.

In a nutshell, we need to facilitate the resolution of our children's symptoms without suppressing them, and we need to take another look at the value of childhood illnesses in our society. 

Children need to be sick in order for them to get well.
