Holistic Child Health Newsletter 
September 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

Why So Many Kids Can't Sit Still in School Today
Dr Palevsky's Comments:  It's possible that the excitement and underdevelopment of children's nervous systems, begin in-utero and in early infancy. With pregnant moms receiving multiple sonograms, inflammation-causing and mercury-containing vaccinations, medications, and many unnecessary perinatal interventions, like pitocin and epidurals, we can only imagine what state infants' nervous systems are in, and what resilience they have, by the time they are born. 

Then, we inject newborns and children with excitatory, inflammatory material at birth, 2 months, 4 months, 6 months, 9 months, 12 months, 15 months, 18 months, and 4 years, and we wonder why children are jumpy and unable to calm themselves down, especially when some of the materials in the vaccines are neuro-excitatory (aluminum, mercury, MSG, glutamate). 

Then, we feed them lots of dairy products, against which their immune systems will produce an inflammatory response, potentially leading to irritability and excitement, mostly since the dairy protein, casein, gets injected into the body, along with all the other vaccine ingredients, causing an antagonistic response to dairy by the immune system. Other reasons for excitatory reactions to dairy are, American cow products contain a highly inflammatory A1 casein protein, and the dairy products most children consume are pasteurized and homogenized. 

And, then we feed them hi-test, through processed non-nutritious flour products and sugars in the form of bread, pasta, crackers, cookies, cake, donuts, muffins, pancakes, waffles cold cereals, bagels, cupcakes, goldfish, pretzels, and cereal bars, and juice, soda, gatorade, and other sugar-flavored beverages, along with dyes, preservatives, MSG, food additives and food colorings, and can't seem to understand why they are speeding.  

Then, we excite them with the electromagnetic radiation of iPhones, iPads, computers, Wii, tablets, televisions, and wi-fi, and find it difficult to understand why their systems are jacked up. 

Then, we have them sleep on their backs, and end up holding them too much, leaving their neuromuscular systems at a disadvantage, and less able to develop the proper neurosequencing that leads to a mature, balanced nervous system, which more appropriately happens for them on their bellies. Speech, balance, vision, processing, coordination, strength, tone, and the ability to stop involuntary movements, are all based on the proper sequencing of early muscle development, which mostly occurs if babies sleep, and spend a lot of time, on their bellies, and if their hindbrains (medulla & cerebellum) are not overwhelmed with exposures to inflammatory, neuro-excitatory chemicals early on in their development. 


Then, we over-stimulate them with classes and activities and objects and talking and prompting and training and instruction and direction and education, without letting them truly have their own experiences, and learning through their own processes of discovery and exploration, and we wonder why our children have trouble self-regulating............ Children really only require our presence, guidance, observation, connection from a healthy distance, and the setting of boundaries for safety, and much less of our interference, for them to safely become who they are meant to be, as separate individuals.

We can't jack our children up in their early years of life, and then send them to school and ask them to sit still, and expect that we're going to see them comply with our requests.........Unstructured, free play is the most optimal activity for children. But, keeping their brains healthy starts long before we provide them the opportunities to go out and participate in much-need physical activities.

The Very Real Risks of Consuming Too Much Protein

Food Sensitivities Dr. Scott Theirl

Dr Palevsky's Comments: Here's a quick, succinct summary re: food sensitivities and evaluation by my friend, and colleague, Dr. Scott Theirl. Unfortunately, IgG testing is not licensed in NYS. Nonetheless, it can be helpful for people who insist on doing actual testing of food sensitivities. This test, however, only measures whether your body has an immunoglobulin G sensitivity reaction to food. If the IgG test is negative for a certain food, it doesn't mean your body isn't sensitive to that food. It just means the immunoglobulin G chemical in your immune system is not positive to that food, and thus, is not responsible for giving you an adverse inflammatory response to it. 

There are other ways in which your immune or nervous system may be mounting an adverse response to one or more foods to which you may be sensitive, other than with a positive IgG test. Unfortunately, we don't have tests that measure all the ways in which the body can adversely respond to a food. If you don't have access to an IgG test, and you experience one or more of the symptoms Dr. Theirl talks about, simply do at least a 1 month elimination diet, to evaluate your food sensitivities, and observe whether you feel any better, or not. Some people require a longer period of elimination. A small reintroduction of that food, along with a return of your symptoms, may be the kind of test your body needs to show you how important it is for you to avoid eating that food.

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


"Dr Palevsky, with Winter approaching I am being bombarded by Flu Shot advertising and everyone I know is getting one......but something doesn't feel right to me.....what do you think?"


I don't recommend the flu vaccine, at all. Influenza viruses account for a small proportion of the viruses that 'infect' people during fall and winter seasons. Influenza viruses are always present, and do not necessarily 'arrive' in society when the weather changes. They may, perhaps, be expressed during fall and winter seasons but, for the most part, expect that most people are already exposed to these viruses during any part of the year, and expect that most people are carrying in their bodies the majority of viruses that lead people to experience 'flu' illnesses, including influenza viruses, way before they 'catch' their illnesses. Exposure to viruses does not automatically mean illness........

Suffice it to say, when people get sick after receiving the flu vaccine, as many people report, they are not experiencing a viral flu illness. What they are experiencing is the appropriate reaction in their bodies of an immune system that is inappropriately exposed to an injection of poisonous materials. Poisonous materials cannot remain in the body, and will threaten the safety and integrity of the cells, tissues and organs if they are allowed to remain in the body. Somehow, the body must find a way to reject the load and intensity of such an acute exposure of toxic ingredients from a flu vaccine. What other way to do it, then the expression of what appears to be a flu-like illness. Acute exposure to toxins will lead to an acute illness to purge and cleanse these toxins. Intense load in (flu vaccine) leads to intense load out (acute illness).

When we mistake a flu-like illness as being caused by a virus, we fail to understand that a virus may, or may not, play any role in the body's development of symptoms. In fact, a flu-like illness is less likely to be caused by a virus, and more likely to be the appropriate response by the body to purge and expel the wastes and toxins out to the exterior, that are accumulated as a result of an intense stress to the body, i.e., the injection/inhalation of a flu vaccine. We can only worry what happens to people who don't have acute symptoms after exposure to such a toxic vaccine, as it is so vital that the body find a way to consistently remove wastes and toxins in order to keep the cells functioning optimally. If this important removal doesn't happen on a regular basis, and more and more toxins and wastes build up, then we have created chronic illness.......

Adding a stress to the body like the flu vaccine makes no sense. Thinking that the 3 viruses in the flu vaccine are the only viruses, or even the main viruses, that lead to flu-like illnesses during the winter is silly, and shortsighted. Understanding that increasing stress to the body during the fall and winter, like increasing schedules and activities at a time when the days are getting shorter and the energy of the season is contracting, eating out-of-season foods, sleeping and resting poorly, not taking vitamin D3/K2, taking the flu vaccine, and not slowing down and 'hibernating' the way the rest of the animal kingdom slows down, are the ways in which the body will increase its load and intensity of wastes and toxins. By the time January, February and March roll around, and people in the Northern hemisphere have accumulated more wastes and toxins from June 21 to December 21, by living out of sync with nature as the days are getting progressively shorter, there's nothing like a 'spring cleaning,' which we call a flu-like illness, to come along and straighten us out so we don't hold onto these accumulated wastes and toxins.

CHE Fertility Working Group Call: 
Prenatal Exposures: What Do Providers Know?


Tuesday September 30, 2014 at 11:00 am Pacific/ 2:00 pm Eastern

Health care providers are a trusted source of information. They counsel patients to avoid a variety of risks, and promote good health habits. But recent evidence demonstrates that practitioners caring for the most vulnerable populations, pregnant women and their unborn babies, lack the information and training to confidently talk to their clients about preventing prenatal environmental exposures.


This call on Tuesday September 30, 2014 at 11:00 am Pacific/ 2:00 pm Eastern will examine the scope of clinical provider knowledge about reproductive toxicants and explore possible strategies for increasing clinicians' knowledge base. 


Dr. Naomi Stotland, from the UCSF Program on Reproductive Health and the Environment (PRHE), will present findings from a survey of obstetricians about environmental health counseling. 

Dr. Susan Buchanan, from the Great Lakes Center for Children's Environmental Health Region 5 Pediatric Environmental Health Specialty Unit (PEHSU), will discuss emerging practices in training prenatal providers in environmental health. 

Dr. Victoria Maizes will present data recently obtained at the University of Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine about an online course designed to increase in environmental health knowledge in health professionals.
