Dr. Larry Palevsky, M.D. - Children Need to Be Sick to be Well

10:00 - 10:55

Is it a bad thing when children get sick? Is something really wrong in their bodies? Do they get sick because their immune systems are weak or because their immune systems are showing signs of strength?  Dr. Palevsky will offer you a unique perspective on how and why children develop symptoms of illness. He will discuss diet and lifestyle practices that contribute to symptoms, why these symptoms may happen for their benefit, and why it may not be best to use medications that suppress symptoms.  You will also walk away with a better understanding of when there is reason for concern during an acute illnesses, and when it is wise to seek medical attention.

The Leg Bone's Connected To The Hip Bone…

The human body is AMAZING and so interconnected!  So often we take for granted how we are able to move and lack the awareness of how it is working for us on a daily basis.  Learn how we are put together biomechanically, common things that can go wrong and what things to pay attention to as you move through space.  Our bodies whisper little clues when something is not right.  Prevention is developing the AWARENESS to hear those whispers before they become a scream, and mindfully teaching our bodies to work in our favor.

MMR and the Measles

Measles has apparently become the modern-day bubonic plague. But, does the scientific literature support the level of hysteria with which we are now faced from physicians, the media, and the government? Is the measles something to fear and dread as a deadly disease? Dr. Palevsky will review the history of the measles, discuss the natural course of the illness, and suggest that safe remedies for the measles exist. In addition to concerns with contracting measles, a growing number of parents have questions regarding the safety of the MMR. Dr. Palevsky will examine the scientific information to consider when making an informed choice about this vaccine for your child.

Dr. Larry Palevsky, M.D. - Safe Home Remedies for Common Pediatric Conditions

There was a time when children developed fevers, colds, coughs, sore throats, earaches, stomach aches, rashes, and other childhood illnesses, and parents knew exactly how to care for them. No panic, minimal worry, and a medicine cabinet full of non-suppressive remedies to support their children through the course of their symptoms. Parents instinctively knew these ‘illnesses’ were simple rites of passage through childhood, helping to mature and strengthen their children’s immune systems along the way. Dr. Palevsky will introduce you to home remedies you can utilize to safely support your children through illness. In using them, you may notice how easily symptoms can resolve and the developmental growth spurts that often occur once illnesses have resolved without the use of suppressive over-the-counter and prescription medications.

Dr. T.J. will discuss how functional medicine is the answer to almost all health problems, and certainly all chronic health issues people deal with today.  Also he will highlight the major differences between the failing "pill for a problem" conventional medicine model and the personalized "root cause" functional medicine model.  Your health is in your hands, and Dr. T.J. will show you how. Remember, health is not an option, it is a prerequisite.
