Brain retraining programs have become one of the most popular therapies for those affected by Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS), Fibromyalgia (FM), Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS), and a whole range of other environmental and invisible illnesses. Probably the most well known is the Dynamic Neural Retraining System (DNRS) developed by Annie Hopper as she herself recovered from such life-changing conditions.
DNRS seeks to address the limbic system hypersensitivity seen in invisible illnesses, according to a growing number of research studies. It does so through a a variety of mental techniques that utilize neural plasticity; the ability of the brain to "re-wire" itself and form new synaptic connections and pathways. An entirely online version has also recently been launched, making it accessible to almost everyone.
Patients and doctors alike have seen incredible results through DNRS and now Hopper and her team are engaged in a collaborative study with The University of Alberta’s Integrative Health Institute and the University of Calgary to determine the System's effectiveness at treating those affected by Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS), Fibromyalgia (FM) and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME/CFS). They're also hoping to learn more about the effects of neural retraining in general.
