Fearless Parent Radio – How to Raise A Healthy Child In Spite of Your Doctor – 04.27.16

Do you have a pediatrician you love? Do you even know what that could look like? In the current polarized medical climate, finding a like-minded — or even open minded — pediatrician is not always easy.

But… there was one pediatrician who was willing to swim against the tide — loudly and proudly — even back in the 1970s. In this episode, homebirth midwife Sally Mendelsohn and Dr. Maya discuss Dr. Robert Mendelsohn’s “renegade” ideas, including his books How To Raise a Healthy Child In Spite of Your Doctor and Confessions of a Medical Heretic.

How did Dr. Mendelsohn start on his visionary path and how was it received by the medical establishment?

What were his thoughts about birth, ultrasound, breastfeeding, and vaccination?

What, if any, practices and attitudes have changed since he wrote his books?

Robert Mendelsohn, MD (1926-1988) was one of the first outspoken, renegade pediatricians. A graduate of University of Chicago for both his undergraduate studies as well as medical school, he went on to write numerous books including How to Raise a Healthy Child in Spite of Your Doctor, Confessions of a Medical Heretic, Male Practice: How Doctors Manipulate Women, and more. He was selected by President Johnson to lead Project Head Start’s Medical Consultation Service. He publicly questioned the mainstream attitudes about medication, parenting, birthing, ultrasound, immunizations, hospitalization and surgery. He appeared on over 500 television and radio talk shows.

Infectious Myth – Jim West on Ultrasound – 05.26.15

In Episode 60 David discusses the dangers of ultrasound with Jim West, author of an annotated bibliography of research from China. Once Western countries, in particular the US, moved past the evidence that ultrasound was neither safe nor effective, research shut down, and the negative findings were forgotten. But in China, starting in the 1980s, and continuing until recently, research on the biological effects of ultrasound on the fetus was quite common, performing ultrasound on fetuses that were about to be aborted, to avoid ethical issues. This research lends evidence that the extremely high frequencies of ultrasound, and the ever increasing power, can cause cellular changes at the microscopic level. And there is some epidemiological evidence to suggest that there are increased risks of diseases like autism in babies that had the most ultrasounds while in the womb.
