Dan’s return to health from severe environmental illness

Dan at his worstAt his worst, Dan Ross had a list of diagnoses that included Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS), Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity (EHS), Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA), leaky gut, adrenal fatigue, low testosterone/DHEA/thyroid hormones, brain damage, heavy metal toxicity, depression, post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), potentially lethal constipation (slow motility), and severe sensitivities and allergies to foods, pollen, mold, herbs, and spices. His journey with debilitating environmental illness sounds much like many others who suffer the extreme version of this disabling condition. He struggled with homelessness, living out of a van on and off, and spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on treatments in an effort to reclaim his health and life. His relationships with family suffered and his body was wracked with malnutrition and a terrible itching affliction that left many doctors perplexed.

All this changed when he discovered Annie Hopper’s Dynamic Neural Retraining System™ (DNRS), a brain retraining program directed at the limbic system and other areas of the brain that are hypothesized to be involved with environmental illness. Dan devoted himself to the program, customizing it so it was fun for him – something he looked forward to each morning – rather than a daily chore. He started riding his bike, doing yoga and meditation, and other outdoor activities even though he had been severely limited by pollen allergies in the past. He quickly noticed his allergies and sensitivities receding and gained confidence to do more. Instead of practicing the DNRS exercises the recommended 1 hour per day, Dan worked the program for an average of 3-4 hours a day.

Recently, Dan completed a video testimonial for the DNRS program – you can view the dramatic before and after video footage showing his recovery and hear more about his journey on Planet Thrive’s satellite LimbicRetraining.com website: Dan’s miraculous recovery from severe MCS and EHS.

    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.

    Thank you very much for this article.

    I can empathize with what Dan has suffered and am happy that he has recovered. That is good news for other EI people.

    I am almost finished reading “Vibrational Medicine,” by Dr. Micheal Gerber. It convinced me that DNRS has helped with Dan’s recovery. Such also played an intuitive role in my own recovery from MCS.
