Vestibular and proprioceptive senses and occupational therapy

Our vestibular (or movement/ balance) sense has its receptors in our inner ear. It tells us if we are moving, or if something in our environment is moving. It’s highly connected to our visual system (hence the nystagmus response). Sensory seekers in this area may swing (and swing and swing and SWING), spin themselves in place, etc.

Our proprioceptive sense has its receptors in our muscles and joints. Sensory seeking in this area could include jumping, crashing, lifting, heavy work, etc.

Proprioceptive input is “safe” sensory input. You cannot really overdose a child on heavy work, joint compressions, etc.

Vestibular input should be used with caution and guided by a trained OT (especially the use of therapy equipment in a school setting) linear, rhythmic movement TENDS to be calming for most individuals. While rotational input, starts/ stops, etc TENDS to be excitatory and elicit an arousal response. While kids may SEEK rotational input, they may not be truly integrating it. Watch for dizziness, nausea, overreactions, etc.



Oxalates are highly reactivate molecules found in certain foods. They create pain and inflammation in the body, particularly for certain people.
Oxalates are found in high amount in spinach, nuts, sweet potato, beets, chocolate and many other foods.
Oxalates bind with certain minerals, particularly calcium and magnesium, as well iron and copper - so they are often found in calcium rich foods.
High oxalate in the body can be a factor in many chronic conditions: including digestive issues, autoimmune disorders, and neurological conditions. Oxalates affect mitochondrial function, and can create information, thus, influencing every system in the body.
Having high oxalates in the body can be problematic and not giving proper consideration to one's oxalate intake can impede the effectiveness
even best healing diet protocols.
Unfortunately, because they bind to minerals, they render minerals unavailable to the body.
So a food that is seemingly 'healthy' because it is rich in calcium like spinach, can actually deplete us of these essential minerals.
Oxalates can cause or contribute to the hypothyroid function, autoimmune conditions, Autism, asthma, kidney stones, cystic fibrosis, head aches, and other chronic conditions.
Other common oxalate caused symptoms may include mood disorders, anxiety, sleep problems, weakness, burning feet. Indicators can be digestive upsets, respiratory issues, or even bed wetting for children.
Oxalates can be a problem when: when the gut is inflamed and hyper permeable meaning 'Leaky Gut', fat is not digested and there is fat malabsorption or when there is not enough good bacteria in the gut to breakdown the oxalate.
Consuming a low oxalate diet can help reduce pain, improve digestion, and the microbiome improve mood and support growth in children.
Making good choices or modifying a diet for oxalate can make a dramatic difference in lowering the oxalate load.
Please note that it is important to reduce oxalates in the diet ver slowly.
I will share low oxalate foods in my next post very shortly.

"Tactile defensiveness (TD) is a label used to describe negative and out-of-proportion behaviors in response when being touched in a way that most people tolerate and even enjoy.

A recent study showed that these tactile hypersensitivities are related to abnormal patterns of white matter growth discovered in the brains of individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). The study further explained that the abnormal patterns of white matter growth cause the normal tactile inputs to be re-routed towards the sensory cortex area that processes pain making light touch a rarely pleasurable experience for individuals with ASD. Instead, individuals with autism often prefer and seek out deep pressure and tight squeezes. These preferences are the result of a dysfunction in the tactile processing system."

(The article focuses on Autism, but this can also apply to those who have sensory sensitivities and are not autistic.)
