neural retraining ins & outs
Decided to start a discussion on neutral retraining. I still the ins and outs of posting and the ins & outs of the program. I am especially noticing that high
stress leads to the return of symptoms, but that the exercises (especially the visualizations) dampen the MSC symptoms.
On your "one tool in the toolbox" point I could not agree more. In fact, I am currently writing an extensive eBook whose second of two parts is essentially a road map for recovery from MCS and other EIs. This road map is broken down into four stages and it is only the final one where DNRS and other brain retraining/desensitization therapies come in to play.
I hope your overall approach and the power of the 5th step continue to bring improvement...
Thanks for your replies and encouragement! I am learning to balance the tools of dnr with my supplements and diet. I discovered last week that my candida was up and probably contributing
to the MCS. I am realizing it is just one tool, of many in the toolbox of recovery. I had let my diet slip somewhat thinking the dnr was the one bullet answer. However, this morning I was able to use classical music and meditation greatly reduce my pain level. I try to think of this as an ongoing experiment, and it is encouraging when I able to join others in their journey.
I haven't invested in the DNRS disks as yet. Have only just started taking the Pall supplements at this stage.
You may take a few steps backwards at times Canary . . . but you are taking more forward steps than backwards, because you are doing something, not just sitting doing nothing and getting worse and worse as I have been up to now. So don't let anything or anyone get in your way of doing the retraining.
It's good to read that the visualizations in particular are helping to dampen your MCS symptoms already. Since everything that goes wrong in MCS seems to have its roots in the amygdala (the fear centre of the brain) it is logical that stress exacerbates MCS symptoms. Unfortunately this also leads many doctors to dismiss MCS with a mis-diagnosis of anxiety or other mood disorder.
Anyway, I for one wish you all the best with the DNRS and look forward to future updates on your progress here in this discussion thread.
Oh and you're doing just great using the site so don't worry about that and add to your stress! All the best.
