Course Overview
 

Course Overview:

Introduction

IMAGINE

Imagine that you have the power to harness brain function and that this is the missing key in creating optimal health and well-being for yourself. In this first chapter – using the acronym IMAGINE – Annie explores the general concepts of limbic system rehabilitation included in the DNRS program. This foundational knowledge is important to remember when engaging in the program and will assist you throughout your recovery journey.

 

Introduction to the five pillars series

DNRS AND SELF-DIRECTED NEUROPLASTICITY

In this video, Annie introduces the concepts of self-directed neuroplasticity and DNRS as a form of limbic system rehabilitation. She also introduces the DNRS 5 Pillars of Recovery.

 

Pillar 1 – 14 Videos – Recognition of Limbic System Impairment

This first series of videos takes you on a deeper dive into the Pillar 1 of DNRS, understanding that a maladapted stress response and limbic system impairment is associated with your condition. It’s important to understand how the limbic system functions in order to use neuroplasticity and the DNRS program to restructure your brain and regain a state of optimal health. Annie describes the function of the limbic system including the structures within the brain that are the focus of DNRS. She discusses the various forms of trauma that can adversely affect the limbic system, concepts of the DNRS program, describing how and why it works for so many conditions. This is a great review of the instructional video series and interactive seminars.

P1-01 – INTRO TO THE LIMBIC SYSTEM P1-02 – THE PERFECT STORM P1-03 – SYMPTOMS OF LIMBIC SYSTEM IMPAIRMENT P1-04 – SENSORY DISTORTION P1-05 – THE BRAIN STUCK IN FIGHT, FLIGHT, OR FREEZE P1-06 – THE DARK SIDE OF NEUROPLASTCITY P1-07 – THE CELL DANGER RESPONSE P1-08 – AUTONOMIC NERVOUS SYSTEM P1-09 – THE VAGUS NERVE P1-10 – AVOIDANCE AND THE BRAIN’S NEGATIVITY BIAS P1-11 – HOW MANY ARE SUFFERING? P1-12 – THE TWO TRUTHS P1-13 – EVERYTHING DNRS IS NOT P1-14 – PILLAR 1 INTERVIEWS

 

Pillar 2 – 4 Videos – Identifying and Interrupting all Pathways of the Past or “POPs”.

In the next four videos Annie discusses the importance of stepping into the stance of ‘curious observer’ and learning how to identify patterns and distortions involved with limbic system impairment. She first reviews how to identify Pathways of the Past (POPs), then you will work through a limbic system trauma loop worksheet, step by step, and identify examples of different types of POPs. There are a number of tips for catching your POPs, and for redirecting using ‘Popposites.’ The Reticular Activating System (RAS) is also discussed. The bonus feature includes participants sharing their personal insights about implementing Pillar 1.

P2-01 – STEPPING INTO THE CURIOUS OBSERVER P2-02 – PATHWAYS OF THE PAST P2-03 – POPPOSITES P2-04 – PILLAR 2 INTERVIEWS

 

Pillar 3 – 7 Videos – Completing Full Rounds of the Limbic System Retraining Steps

In the next seven videos Annie focuses on Pillar 3, Completing Full Rounds of the Limbic System Retraining Steps for at least one hour per day. Annie talks about why it’s so important to practice in the recommended way. She also shows you ways to customize some of the steps, and how to talk directly to your limbic system. Annie discusses your immediate goals in practicing the retraining steps and how this relates to the ebb and flow of recovery. provides some new examples of how to tailor the DNRS Retraining Steps for a wider range of conditions, not previously included in the instructional videos. In the Bonus Feature, several participants share their stories of recovery using the DNRS program and also speak about their personal experiences with implementing Pillar 3.

Pillar 4, Incremental Training is covered in the next six videos. Incremental training is a form of neural shaping that helps to strengthen healthy neural pathways. Annie discusses why it’s a key component of limbic system rehabilitation. She also discusses topics such as, how to practice with 24/7 ‘ITs’ and how to retrain if you’re experiencing a range of conditions. In order to recover, it is not always necessary to incrementally train with each specific condition or sensitivity. In addition to the videos on Incremental Training, this section also includes a sample incremental training plan for food sensitivities. The bonus feature includes participants speaking about their experience implementing incremental training and recovering from various conditions using DNRS.

In the next six videos Annie explores Pillar 5, Elevating your Emotional State. This is an inherent part of the DNRS program and assists in changing your brain, both chemically and structurally. Deliberately elevating your mood during the DNRS retraining steps, and throughout the day changes your brain chemically and paves the way for structural changes. Annie describes the rationale behind redirecting your limbic system toward a positive emotional state, and the detrimental effects of excessive focus on negative emotions. Emotional addictions, limbic system resistance and how chemically changing the brain can help prevent the impulse for negative rumination will be covered. Several ideas will be suggested for elevating your emotional state during the retraining steps, as well as throughout the day. A bonus feature includes a compilation video highlighting several past participants sharing how they incorporated Pillar 5 into their recovery journey.

Kelly Showalter
LIVING DNRS Facilitator & Certified Coach

Before discovering DNRS™, Kelly had been diagnosed with several autoimmune disorders as well as MCS, food allergies and sensitivities, and mold illness. Due to constant fatigue, she had to quit teaching high school Spanish and was mostly home bound due to smells triggering symptoms. At one point, she was only able to eat about 15 foods and weighed less than 100 pounds. She discovered DNRS™ in 2014 and made a full recovery by early 2015. Autoimmune markers no longer show up in her blood and she is now able to enjoy foods again. Smells no longer bother her and she is therefore, able to go anywhere she wants. She once again enjoys doing the things she loves such as traveling, hiking, exercising, cooking, and attending theater and museums.  Kelly’s story of recovery can be found on her website limbicrecovery.com

Kelly has a M.A. in Spanish and is bilingual in Spanish and English. Although she no longer teaches, she works with students with disabilities as well as coaches for DNRS™.

Michelle Bubnis
LIVING DNRS Facilitator & Certified Coach

Michelle joined the DNRS™ team after recovering from severe electric hypersensitivity syndrome, multiple chemical sensitivities, food sensitivities and Lyme disease. After seeing countless medical specialists and trying multiple treatments without much improvement, she felt like she had no other option but to live a life of extreme avoidance and isolation. Michelle spent several years homebound, in complete avoidance of electro magnetic fields and was so disabled she was unable to take care of herself. After years of continually searching for an answer a friend told her about DNRS™, and she began the program.

No longer imprisoned by her environment, Michelle is free to travel the world. She can do anything she wants at any time that she wants! Michelle is happy to resume her role as an educator, world traveller and athlete who swims, runs and works out!

Now fully recovered, Connie is enjoying a full life once again and doing all the things that bring meaning and joy to her life. She is thrilled to be working, volunteering, exercising and traveling with friends and family. She is passionate about helping others reclaim their lives with neuroplasticity and DNRS™.
