Annie HopperAnnie Hopper and the Dynamic Neural Retraining System™ (DNRS™) team shared exciting news this month with their newsletter subscribers: the University of Calgary and the University of Alberta will be researching the effectiveness of the DNRS with people who suffer from Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS), Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), and Fibromyalgia (FMS). This is big news for everyone who has been asking for scientific studies to prove the efficacy of brain retraining programs for limbic system impairment disorders. The DNRS team is asking for your help this holiday season to help initiate these medical studies that can potentially change millions of lives.

At this time, over $100,000 has been collected towards their goal of $500,000. They are turning to the greater brain retraining community and those whose lives have already been touched by the DNRS program to ask for help raising the remainder of the funds needed for this vital research project. With the validation of university-backed medical studies, brain retraining programs will have the potential to reach a much wider range of people who are suffering needlessly.

All donations from residents of the US and Canada are tax deductible. Every dollar makes a difference – please contribute as little or as much as you are able.

    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 attended a DNRS workshops in Ojai, CA and was disappointed with every aspect of the experience.

    The workshop itself was poorly facilitated and the information as it was presented by the staff was not helpful…it can all be gathered at a much lesser cost in many existing books, YouTubes and articles.

    Annie Hopper and the DNRS team are not at all original thinkers with regard to the brain-body connection and how this relates to the issue of illness.

    What these people excel at is marketing to sick people who are truly desperate.

    Please do not donate your money to this UNworthy organization.

    What is the status of this funding (& study)?

    I heard a study was being done in the US for Ashok Gupta’s brain retraining, but can’t find info – anyone else know?
