Reviews - What do customers think about Brainlash: Maximize Your Recovery from Mild Brain Injury?
For families and friends of brain trauma patients May 16, 2002
This book is a must have for patients and families of brain trauma. It clearly states symptoms and stages of the trauma. It tells you what to expect. It isn't a medical description but a patient to patient description in terms that anyone can comprehend. It is one excellent book. Thank you Gail Denton for writing this book.
Recovery begins with understanding Apr 7, 2002
This book is a guide to sanity for those who have experienced mild brain injury, as I have. In the fall of 2000, I suffered an accidental fall and spent the following 15 months in a struggle to recover my 'real self". With the aid of this book, I am now fully functional again and able to cope with the minor relapses. I strongly recommend this book to those who suffer, their friends and caregivers.
Brainlash reviewed by a head injury patient. Sep 22, 2001
I have read a number of books on the subject as I am a person who has a brain Injury. This book, more than any other I have read, has been extremely helpful to me. First of all because it explains so well what happens to the sufferer, both physiologically as well as emotionally. The book also gives lots of possitive suggestions for coping as well as for healing.
I fulheartedly recommend this book for both patients as well as their family and friends. It gives much understanding into the issue of brain injury and also much encouragement. It is an uplifting book, at least for me it was!
Thank you Gail Denton.
GETTING BETTER STARTED WITH READING THIS BOOK Aug 6, 2000
If you have suffered from a mild traumatic brain injury, as I have,"Brainlash" was the starting point of recovery for me. And I thank God for this book & Gail Denton every day. I quote a paragraph from the book that sums up the point I was at when I started to read BrainLash. "Brain injury races undetected, underdiagnosed, and undertreated through our society." "Between the medical professions ( untrained to recognize it), the insurance community ( unwilling to pay for it ), and the legal sector (unable to represent the loss or grasp the consequences), the mildly brain injured individual has little to rely on and less to go on." And NO!!!! your not going crazy, It just seems that way. The Book is easy to read and finially puts a name on, fully defines,and gives solutions to the symptoms feelings and thoughts that a brain injured person is experiencing but dosen't know why. It is also important to have your family and friends read it so they can try to understand what you are going thru even when you can't understand it yourself. From the resource section of the book I highly recomend that you consider attending the Sensory learning institute and having cranio-sacral therapy. It has been aprox 18 months since my accident and although I feel full recovery is obtainable, it is a long journey and my journey didn't start until I read this book and used its resources.
First aid for survivors Jul 14, 2000
When my daughter suffered a severe concussion in a car accident on Father's Day, June 18, 2000, I was desperate for information about what to expect, what to hope for, and what to accept about her condition. I surfed the internet and chatrooms looking for information, and many "survivors" of mild brain trauma and their family members unanimously recommended this book. I bought it, and found in it an invaluable comfort and resource. It has been a difficult month, but it looks like my daughter will have a full recovery, at least in part thanks to the information we found in Brainlash. Recommended!
