Having a problem breathing deeply to calm down?
Here are some quick, easy, fool-proof ways to quickly breathe fully and deeply.
Too Loud, Too Bright, Too Fast, Too Tight
Do you tear out the tags in your clothing, startle at the sound of a siren, wince at bright light, or flee from the smell of bleach? If so and if your hypersensitivity interferes with the choices you make in your life, you may suffer sensory defensiveness, a relatively common but unknown physical (not psychological) condition that results from hypersensitivity to ordinary sensation and that creates severe stress, anxiety, and a range of other psychopathology. Too Loud describes what it is all about and what you can do about it.
Uptight & Off Center
How Sensory Processing Disorder Throws Adults off Balance & How to Create Stability, by Sharon Heller, PhD (Symmetry, 2009)
Do you feel uptight and also off center - spacey, disorganized, confused, hyperactive, clumsy, impulsive, compulsive, distracted, or confusing left from right? If so, you may have sensory processing disorder (SPD), a common, though relatively unknown condition in which sensory messages get scrambled in the brain and you cannot make accurate sense of or respond appropriately to your world. Uptight and Off Center will help you discover the symptoms, causes and treatments for SPD.
Anxiety: Hidden Causes
View Table of Contents
Do you suffer anxiety or panic? If so, you and your doctors likely assume the primary cause to be psychological and its treatment pills and talk therapy. Yet in many, perhaps even most cases the primary cause that drives anxiety and panic is physical: illness, neurological insults, hormone problems, nutritional deficiency, cranial/sacral misalignment, toxic air, water, and food, sensory processing problems, or a combination. In Anxiety: Hidden Causes, you will learn the many physical causes of anxiety, their identifiable symptoms and how to treat the various dysfunctions through primarily holistic, natural interventions that, in many cases, makes drugs entirely unnecessary.
How to create a nontoxic, uncluttered, relaxing, & aesthetic sensory haven for your individual style (Symmetry, 2015)
Your home is your refuge. But if it is toxic, noisy, poorly lit, cluttered, shut off from nature and out of sync with your sensory preferences, as many homes are, it will diminish rather than enhance well-being. This book will show you how to create a comfortable, beautiful, organized, appropriately stimulating, and healthy home that engages your senses, and protects, comforts, and shelters you from the outside world.
The Vital Touch
Why so American babies rank as the least held on this earth? Throughout human evolution, babies have enjoyed on-going intimate contact with their mothers and still do in most of the world. Such contact serves an important purpose for the infant's emotional, neurological, and physical development, and sense of well being. Drawing from an array of anthropological and cultural sources, The Vital Touch explores all the physical, emotional, sensory, neurological, and psychological benefits that occur when mother and baby are in touch and what happens when they are not.
