Dynamic Neural Retraining SystemFrom retrainingthebrain.com:

What is it?
The Dynamic Neural Retraining System™ (DNRS) is a three-day workshop that helps individuals to correct an impaired mechanism in the brain that is responsible for the “fight or flight” unconscious fear response. An acquired brain injury – from chemicals, bacteria, mold, and other environmental assaults – causes impairment to this mechanism resulting in a chronic trauma response.

This unconscious conditioned response results in limbic system priming, requiring less and less stimulus for this mechanism to fire. Habitual and unconscious brain patterning programs reinforces this trauma induced response and in turn activates a conditioned immune response.

This impairment is at the root of many chronic and often “mysterious” illnesses like chemical sensitivities, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, anxiety disorders, chronic pain disorders, electrical sensitivities and more.

Participants of this training are taught to recognize the unconscious reactions of limbic system structures to this impaired mechanism and how to interrupt this brain trauma response pattern. Through various methodologies and repetitious neuroplasticity exercises participants are instructed how to act back on the brain to promote neuroplastic changes that normalize the threatening stimulus response mechanism and limbic system function. This in turn inhibits the conditioned immune response.

This 3 day training involves:
* Limbic System Neuroanatomy
* The relationship between all forms of stress (physical, mental, emotional) and brain function
* The relationship between impaired limbic system function and chemical sensitivities, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, anxiety disorders, chronic pain disorders, electrical sensitivities and a host of often “mysterious” illnesses
* Cognitive Behaviour Therapy
* Core Belief Counselling
* Life Coaching
* Neuro Linguistic Programming
* Self Hypnosis
* Guided Visualization
* Cognitive Restraint Induced Therapy
* Somatic Exercises
* Brain Stimulation Exercises

Although tremendous shifts in health can happen within the 3 day training, consistent practice is mandatory for permanent changes. Daily practice of a total of one hour for 6 months is recommended for optimal results.

Emphasis is also on the imperative need for environmental awareness to prevent limbic system related illnesses.

The Dynamic Neural Retraining System™ workshop runs for 6 hours per day for 3 consecutive days with an hour for lunch and two fifteen minutes breaks. Workshop venues are chosen with environmental awareness in mind, 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 ten participants per training workshop.

The program is also available as a DVD kit and can be purchased with a full written transcript for those unable to access a DVD player or computer.

Who is Annie Hopper?
Annie Hopper is a Core Belief Counselor and Brain Retraining Specialist who has been in the health and wellness field for twenty years. In 2005, at the peak of her counseling practice she developed severe and disabling multiple chemical sensitivities (MCS). In 2007 she even experienced a period of homelessness when she developed electrical sensitivities on top of MCS and as a result could no longer live in her home. Annie is now completely recovered from MCS, electrical sensitivities and fibromyalgia through manually directing neuroplastic changes in her brain that corrected limbic system function.

Brain Plasticity
For nearly four hundred years brain scientists believed that the brain was fixed in its function and it is only within the last three decades that neuro-scientists have discovered that the brain is regenerative and adaptable. In fact, the brain has the ability to change and regenerate until the day we die.

The term neuroplasticity refers to the brain’s astonishing, innate ability to change and heal itself. This new science has dramatically shifted our perception of healing and understanding the brain’s role in creating optimal physical, emotional and mental health.

This revolutionary process allowed Annie to personally transform her health and alleviate all symptoms of severe chemical sensitivities, electrical sensitivities and fibromyalgia.

The Dynamic Neural Retraining System™ is a complete and comprehensive package that promotes positive, radical neuroplastic changes in the brain that will enable you to transform your health and transform your life.

Who Can Benefit?
Creating positive neuroplastic changes is involved in the recovery from chronic fatigue syndrome, chemical sensitivities, fibromyalgia, anxiety disorders, chronic pain syndromes, electrical sensitivities and many other physical, emotional and mental challenges.

Some of the latest and best research on the brain, cell biology and quantum physics proves that our brain patterns can help or hinder our state of health which can be changed as we retrain and rewire our brain.

Is it possible that through changing brain structure and function that we can restore our physical, mental, and emotional health? The answer is a resounding “YES!”

The brain controls the behaviour of the body’s cells. This is a very important point to consider as we blame the cells of our organs and tissues for the health issues we experience in our lives. – Dr. Bruce Lipton Ph.D

  • Earthwalker is the username that PT founder Julie Genser created for her online interactions so many years ago when first creating Planet Thrive.

    Julie's (Earthwalker's) life was derailed over twenty years ago when she had a very large organic mercury exposure after she naively used a mouth thermometer to measure the temperature of just-boiled milk while making her very first pizza at home. The mercury instantly expanded into a gas form and exploded out the back of the thermometer right into her face. Unaware that mercury was the third most neurotoxic element on Earth, Julie had no idea she had just received a very high dose of a poisonous substance.

    A series of subsequent toxic exposures over the next few years -- to smoke from two fires (including 9/11), toxic mold, lyme disease, and chemical injuries -- caused catastrophic damage to her health. While figuring out how to survive day-to-day, and often minute-to-minute, she created Planet Thrive to help others avoid some of the misdiagnoses and struggles she had experienced.

    She has clawed her way over many health mountains to get to where she is today. She is excited to bring the latest iteration of Planet Thrive to the chronic illness community.

    In 2019, Julie published her very first cookbook e-book called Low Lectin Lunches (+ Dinners, Too!) after discovering how a low lectin, gluten free diet was helping manage her chronic fascia/muscle pain.

    I am truly interested in this field for the treatment of PTSD, both mild to severe. Also, for addiction issues. It seems to me that this should/will become part of the “integrative” approach for both that is starting to show up in Western medicine. Now to really get thee word out!

    Dear madam, i live in adelaide australia ,and am suffering severe chemical sensitivities , my face and lips have been swollen for a year and the swelling will not go away , i am trying detoxes and other natural products,with slight improvement ,please help can i actually do this program on my own and how much does it cost, is there any money back guarantee , as i am always struggling financialy . thanks tatiana
