As summarized with "Phobia Free," my research with dyslexia unexpectedly led to the discovery that over 90% of all phobic behavior and panic attacks are due to a dysfunction within the inner-ear and its supercomputer - the cerebellum.
For the very first time, we could clearly understand and classify most phobias by their inner-ear determining mechanisms:

•Motion Triggers: Fears of moving elevators, escalators, tunnels, planes, buses ...
•Imbalance Triggers: Fears of heights, the dark, walking alone across open spaces, standing still...
•Disorientation Triggers: Fears of getting lost or going too far from home...
•Sensory-Deprivation Triggers: Claustrophobia or fears of being trapped in closed spaces like tunnels, rooms with windows...

Most important, over 80 -90% of inner-ear or Type III Phobias respond favorably to combinations of inner-ear-enhancing medications, including SSRIs. And all respond to the added control gained by in- depth neuropsychological insights and related behavioral modification techniques.
