How Does The Program Work ?


The Dynamic Neural Retraining System™ reveals the science behind Limbic System impairments and prepares participants to critically engage with their condition.

The Dynamic Neural Retraining System™ is a drug free, self-directed, neuroplasticity-based treatment that is taught from a platform of environmental awareness. This intensive program is experiential in nature and focuses on normalizing the threat and survival mechanism within the limbic system of the brain.  The program integrates components of cognitive-behaviour therapy, mindfulness based cognitive restructuring, emotional restructuring therapy, neural linguistic programming and incremental exposure and behaviour modification therapy.

This mechanism-targeted behavioural intervention is based in an affect-science perspective, and focuses on the training of a number of regulatory skills including attention focusing, attention distraction, cognitive reappraisal, emotional distancing, emotion regulation as well as experiential and incremental exposure therapy to contexts of perceived risk.

The DNRS program examines how various forms of trauma can affect the stress and protective mechanisms in the brain, how this affects overall health, and how this brain trauma manifests on physical, psychological, and emotional levels.  Patients learn how to effectively interrupt the maladapted ‘fight-or-flight’ stress response and stop the flood of stress-initiated biochemicals that activate cytokine activity and inflammation.  Patients also learn to remap the neural circuits that influence survival and stress mechanisms, thereby normalizing sensory perception, detoxification, immune function, and inflammatory responses.

Limbic System Retraining is an accumulative practice. The more you do it the better it gets.

For best results a commitment of daily practice over a consecutive six month period is required to better establish and reinforce changes.

Seminar venues are chosen with environmental awareness, along with a strict “no chemicals” guideline for all participants to ensure comfort and safety for those who are severely chemically intolerant.

Class sizes are limited to twenty participants per seminar.

From Medical Doctors' Perspective

Annie Hopper’s program, which addresses the limbic system “engrained memory” aspect of Multiple Chemical Sensitivity and many other conditions, is the only way I’ve found for some patients to get out of their illnesses.  Physical treatment is often just not enough…there are now patients I won’t even begin to treat until they go through her program.

Annie Hopper understands that in order for our brains to cope with the world, the 'feeling', 'thinking', 'integrating' and 'doing' circuits need to talk to each other. Annie Hopper understands these principles,
and, as her work demonstrates, is able to use these in a practical and sensible manner, in a way that resonates. Her work enables our brains to become more efficient communicators, not only with ourselves but with the world around us.
