There are many sources of stress or trauma that have a direct impact on brain function.  Psychological, emotional, physical, viral, bacterial and chemical just to name a few.

Isolated or combined trauma can cause stress overload in the brain.  When we reach the “tipping point”, the basic threat and survival mechanisms in the brain become over stimulated.  In fact, this protective mechanism can become so over stimulated that it physically alters the structure and function within circuits of the limbic system in the brain.  Consequently, this cross wiring of neural circuits sends false threat messages to the rest of the body.    It also activates a primitive defense system that releases a chronic stream of stress hormones.  This influences many body processes involved with emotions, sensory perception, cognitive function, digestion, energy, detoxification, immune function and libido.  It causes the body to go from a state of “growth and repair” to one of survival.  Understandably, this can cause various types of breakdown in the systems of the body.

Take Lauren for instance.  She is 56 years old and had suffered from a variety of emotional and physical traumas that led to limbic system imbalance in her brain. In 2001, managing illness became her full time job.  Although Lauren had suffered from ill health since childhood, it was the unique combination of triggers in 2001 that really heightened limbic system dysfunction.  Lauren was under an extreme amount of stress at work and was also going through a divorce.  That same year her mother died from cancer and they renovated the building where she worked.   The chemicals used in the renovations were the straw that broke the camel’s back.

The trauma affected the threat mechanisms in Lauren’s brain and her limbic system was ensnared in extreme survival mode. This over activated threat mechanism was skewing her sensory perception and robbing her body of the necessary energy needed to rest, digest and regenerate.  As a result, Lauren’s complete focus was on how she could manage to get through another day.  She had very little energy for anything else.   In fact, there were many days where she didn’t want to go on living anymore.  Life just seemed too hard. She went from one specialist to the next and time and time again was left feeling hopeless to improve her health and quality of life.  Throughout the years she was diagnosed with a number of different illnesses -  Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Multiple Chemical Sensitivities, Depression, Anxiety and a list of food sensitivities a mile long.

The good news in all of this is that Lauren recently attended our program in Santa Fe, New Mexico where we teach our clients how to rewire the maladapted threat mechanism in their brain. After the program Lauren commented on how different her life is already. Not only are her physical symptoms rapidly decreasing, her entire outlook on life has changed dramatically. She is now excited about life! Now that she knows she has the ability to take charge of her health, she feels joyfully empowered to do so.

Regulating limbic system function is at the very root of recovery for many illnesses.

With this in mind we invite you to joyfully empower yourself to take control of your own health and join us at the Ocean Resort on Vancouver Island, Canada on May 22 – 26. We will be holding another program at the same location on August 11 - 15.
All meals and accommodations provided.

The Early Bird deadline for the May program is coming up quickly.  Register by May 9 and save $300!  If you have purchased the DNRS DVD Series, can can also save an additional $100!*

How does DNRS work?

The Dynamic Neural Retraining System (DNRS) is a limbic system neural rehabilitation program for people suffering from chronic conditions, including:

• Multiple Chemical Sensitivities
• Fibromyalgia
• Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
• Gulf War Syndrome
• Food Sensitivities
• Electric Hypersensitivity Syndrome
• Anxiety Disorders

Many of these illnesses are characterized as Toxicant Induced Loss of Tolerance or TILT associated illnesses.

Trauma from chemical injury, bacteria, viruses, electromagnetic fields as well as emotional and psychological stress can shock the brain into disorganizing neural circuits resulting in over-activated threat, survival and protective mechanisms within the limbic system.

The techniques used in the DNRS are based on neuroplasticity therapy, which re-wires the brain to build more functional neural pathways.

The program recruits dormant or new pathways in the brain to restore normal function. This is similar to the rehab of a stroke patient who learns to recruit other parts of the brain to take over function for the injured area.

DNRS systematically demonstrates how to re-wire neural circuits in the limbic system that influence survival and stress mechanisms, sensory perception, detoxification, immune function and inflammatory responses.
