V is for Victory: DNRS success storyVisforVictory has been a member of the Planet Thrive online community for several years and has regularly shared on her blog about her personal journey with outdoor living and homelessness due to severe environmental illness. She also wrote a series on EI Homelessness for Planet Thrive to help others learn from her experiences on the road.

Often she found herself, as a woman alone, in dangerous situations where her life felt threatened. Living out of one’s car takes a toll over time, and she was fortunate enough to find a ‘safe enough’ home after over four years in her car to call her own. Unfortunately, as many of us have experienced, that ‘safe enough’ house turned out to have a toxic mold problem which eventually caused her health gains to plummet. Without much income and unwilling to give up the security of a roof over her head, VisforVictory felt caught between a rock and a hard place. She could stay in the moldy environment and watch as her health worsened, or go back to the discomfort and inherent dangers of living in her car.

Around that time, a brain retraining angel came onto the Planet Thrive social network, looking for someone to gift a copy of Annie Hopper’s Dynamic Neural Retraining System™ (DNRS™). Out of all the members that expressed interest, VisforVictory was the lucky recipient. A former brain retraining skeptic, V was open minded enough to give it a try. She went offline and focused 100% on the program for 30 days and then came back to give us an update. The results were remarkable. read more here

  • Earthwalker

    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.
