Holistic Child Health Newsletter 
November 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 New Documentary 
Exposes the Hidden Story Behind Vaccines, Pharma, and Food

Breastfed, Homebirthed Babies Taken Away From Parents For Not Using Hospital

Dr. Palevsky's Comments: On paper, this seems like a horrific injustice. Many people have voiced their concern that there must be more to the story than what has been reported, for the authorities to have taken these children away from the parents in this way. Perhaps, it is unfathomable for readers to conceive of the possibility that this could happen in our society. Based simply on the story that is written, however, this appears to be an egregious abuse of the family for their views and their approach to living. Perhaps, there is important information that is being left out. We will see as this story unfolds. I've seen the authorities over-react in family situations, and take children away when there was little-to-no just cause. I've also seen the authorities not act quickly enough to take children away from family situations that significantly threatened the lives of the children. If you feel you have enough information on this case, by all means, take action.

Kenyan Bishops Accuse WHO and UNICEF of Implementing a "Population Control" Program
Dr Palevsky's Comments: As if the egregious nature of this allegation isn't enough......where are the scientific data that support a series of 5 tetanus vaccines to prevent against tetanus? In the US, the recommendation is 1 tetanus vaccine every 10 years, or 1 every 5 years if a person sustains an intercurrent wound suspicious for tetanus. Here is a link to a previous FB post, 
Johns Hopkins Scientist Reveals Shocking Report on Flu Vaccines

Drug Makers Push for Indemnity for Fast-Tracked Ebola Vaccines

Spray Vaccine May Not Halt Swine Flu in Kids, Officials Say

Vaccine-Resistant Polio Strain Discovered
Dr Palevsky's CommentsAs long as we use antibiotics and vaccines, bacteria and viruses are always going to change their structure to prevent their destruction. It's what all living organisms do to avoid harm and death. We will never be able to stay ahead of the game of nature.....

In Response to "The Anti-Vaccination Epidemic" by Paul A. Offit
 Dr Palevsky's Comments:  
"You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete."  R. Buckminster Fuller

The Deadly Truth About Flu Vaccines and Pregnancy

Bitter Pill: The Dangerous Side Effects of Fluoridated Antibiotics

The Healing Power Of Hyperbaric Oxygen Chambers With Dr. Scott Sherr

Dr Palevsky's Comment: The term junk food is a misnomer. Food is food, and junk is junk. But, junk is never food.

In a Mother's Milk, Nutrients, and a Message, Too
Does Milk Do A Body Good? Maybe Not, a New Study Suggests

Fast Food Chains Targeting Children In Middle-Income, Rural Or Black Neighborhoods: Study
Diazepam and N-desmethyldiazepam are Found in Rat Brain and Adrenal and May Be of Plant Origin
Dr Palevsky's CommentsSome hint as to why wheat, and perhaps other grains, are addictive in nature, and put you in a food coma after you eat them. I know as soon as I stopped eating wheat, my desire for carbs and sugars went away almost immediately, and my mind became more clear and open. Just sayin'.

What Doctors are Warning Parents About Allergies and Asthma in Kids

New Food Ratings Can Tell You Which Junk Food Is the Least Bad
Dr Palevsky's Comment: I recommend you double check these two sources side by side......

When it Comes to Food Packaging, What We Don't Know Could Hurt Us
What To Eat In Fall and Winter (Plus Recipe!)
Dr Palevksy's Comments: Short, sweet, and to the point. Simple logic and scientific support to guide us on how eating and living according to the rhythms of nature helps support a healthy immune system. Pretty basic and straightforward. Germs are all around us. All the time, even when there is no outbreak, "going around." By following these basic principles, you will improve the terrain in your bodies that impedes the growth and invasion of disease-causing germs.........Happy Holidays.

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


" I can't seem to avoid all this added sugar in everything I buy. 
Is it really an issue?"


U.S. adult consumption of added sugars increased by more than 30% over three decades

Simple sugars, not only in the form of added processed sugars but also in the form of simple white flour products (gluten and gluten-free) made from the processing of whole grains, increase insulin levels in the body. Steady increases in insulin levels will increase the body's adrenaline production, along with stimulating the fight-or-flight response in the body. This steady increase in adrenaline will signal the body to produce more chemicals of inflammation, making the body respond as if it needs to defend itself against a perceived threat to its life. 

Simple sugars and white flour products also promote the growth of unfavorable bacteria in the intestines. These bacteria, in turn, signal the intestinal immune system, liver, and adrenaline system, to produce chemicals of inflammation, again tricking the body into believing it is being presented with a threat to its life that needs to be defended against. 

Simply put, inflammation is produced when the body's immune, nervous, and endocrine systems are presented with material that it perceives to be a threat to the health and livelihood of the body. As a result, this inflammation makes the body feel sluggish, ill, weighted down, and weak. But, inflammation must be removed from the body in order to prevent the body from being permanently injured, or killed. If it is not adequately removed, through the normal processes of elimination, the inflammation will build up in the body. Where in the body the inflammation will build up is different for each person. And, if the inflammatory material builds up in the body, this process will lead to the development of chronic illness.

How do we best treat chronic illness? Stop introducing the materials into the body that produce the inflammation in the first place, and the symptoms should dissipate, or even disappear altogether. Processed sugars, including corn syrup and high fructose corn syrup, and white flour products, are major contributors to the production of inflammation in the body.
