Sensory Integration Dysfunction - a GREAT book

Posted by Reader on May 12, 2003 at 14:57:22:

I just wanted to recommend a wonderful new book called "Too Loud Too Bright Too Fast Too Tight, by Sharon Heller, Ph.D. It's about sensory integration dysfunction and it deals with adults who have it (as well as children). It has so much valuable information and coping mechanisms that bring about a permanent result and even get people off antidepressants, etc. I would love to hear feedback from anyone who has read it, or learned from it. The only other book I've ever found on the subject was "The Out of Sync Child" which was also very good.

The title reminds me what a former heroin addict told me
about when he got off the drugs, cold turkey. He said the
body stops producing the naturial opiates, Endorphins,
which buffer the world from us. He said the lights are much
brighter and noises much louder and everything hurts till
the endorphins start producing again. I don't know if this
was his opinion or from a medical pro. I wonder if there
is any relationship to other conditions ? I use cayenne
pepper for many things and they say that the heat releases
endorphins and can become addictive. I don't feel addicted
but have a Lot of interest in it for medical reasons and
sorta like the heat.

Vince:What you just described is what I have gone through with fibromyagia. I couldn't tolerate bright lights or loud music or noise. I had to stay at home and cocoon myself because like the addict 'everything hurts until the endorphins start producing again'. The book you mention sounds like an interesting read.

Marian, i wasn't the one who mentioned the book, Reader did.

Anyway, My chemical injury which made me feel drunk for a
few years and then hurt all over from the slightest physical
activity was like FM or CFS and bright headlights at night
burned my eyes and I couldn't listen to music for 5 yrs
but that was probably from brain damage and not being able
to process the complexity or speed. Noises have been a
problem at different times. Could be all the changes that
body chemistry can go through.

By the way, I forgot to mention that she has a whole section in her book about Leaky Gut Syndrome and how it impacts on verious health & sensory problems. How often do you see THAT in a book?

Thanks, Reader.

I predicted many years ago that people would be hearing a lot more about LGS in the coming years. Thanks for the reference. Some people just need to read it in a book.

Namaste`

Walt
