DNRS & Brain Retraining 3 Month Update

Updated: Jan 3

About 3 months ago, I started a brain retraining program called DNRS, which stands for Dynamic Neural Retraining System. DNRS uses principles of neuroplasticity (which is the brains ability to change) to help your body get out of the constant "survival state" it gets stuck in with chronic illness.

To give you a bit of background, these are some of the illnesses I have been diagnosed with: ehlers-danlos syndrome (EDS), dysautonomia / POTS, chiari malformation, intracranial hypertension, gastroparesis, and chronic lyme disease. For years I was severely ill and mostly bed-bound, and wasn't finding much success going the western medicine route.

Thankfully, when I started DNRS, I had already made a lot of progress with my healing through changing my diet and having prolotherapy treatments on my neck (and other methods of healing like sun exposure, grounding, meditation, mindset work, acupuncture, etc). This foundation put me in a really good position to make progress quickly with brain retraining. That being said, many people have started DNRS while bed-bound and have been able to fully recover.

Of all the things I've tried, DNRS has brought me the quickest progress, though I do believe that all the things I'm doing to heal have been building off of each other (kind of like a "snowball effect").

Here are some of the main improvements I've seen as a result of doing DNRS:

  • Increasing energy

  • Faster recovery from "overdoing it" and "fatigue crashes"

  • Improvement in POTS symptoms (dizziness, heart racing, etc)

  • Improvement in walking ability/distance (walked my first mile in 5 years)

  • Improvement in capacity to be around people, noise, and lights

  • Reduction of chronic pain

  • Reduction of brain fog (I can read and process information much better)

I am slowly gaining back functionality, strength, and stamina. If I could go back, I would have started DNRS much sooner. But God's timing is always perfect and I'm very thankful to be making so much progress with it.

Doing DNRS definitely isn't easy, but nothing is harder than being severely ill. It requires a constant conscious effort and a lot of commitment, but it's been so worth it for me. I would highly recommend it (or any good brain retraining program) to anyone struggling with chronic illness.

Recently, I've actually started going through the Gupta Program as well to see if I can glean new insights on brain retraining. I've become very passionate about neuroplasticity and want to learn as much as I can. Once I finish going through Gupta, I'll be sure to share make a comparison post to share the strengths/weaknesses of each program.

The brains ability to heal physiological illness is an incredible and powerful thing. Keep believing healing and recovery is possible! I'm rooting for you in your journey. If you are doing DNRS or another brain retraining program, let me know how it's going in the comments down below.
