Cara has been using the Dynamic Neural Retraining System to recover from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome, Lyme Disease, Food Sensitivities, Multiple Chemical Sensitivity, Electric Hypersensitivity Syndrome, and Irritable Bowel Syndrome.

Cara began experiencing symptoms associated with limbic system impairment sixteen years ago, in the Spring of 2004. “By June of that year I was unable to work and had to go on medical leave for several months. In the fall I was diagnosed with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS). Four years later in 2008 I was diagnosed with Lyme disease, and in 2011 with Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome (CIRS). By 2010 I was disabled and could no longer work.” During this time, Cara searched for answers, visiting numerous doctors and specialists in hopes of relief. “Over the course of about ten years I saw or was treated by three Medical Doctors (including a specialist in Lyme disease and another specialist in chronic inflammatory response syndrome and biotoxin illnesses), six naturopaths (three who specialized in Lyme disease), three acupuncturists (including a Doctor of Oriental Medicine), three neurologists, two cardiologists, an endocrinologist, and two gastroenterologists. By 2014 I quit pursuing medical opinions and treatments. I’d given up, and by then I was fully disabled.”

Cara found out about DNRS through a family member who came across the program on the internet. As she recalls, “I’ll never forget the date: January 2, 2019. As soon as I heard about it a thrill of hope ran through me. I read the website immediately and knew I had the key to recovery. Taking the Online Course confirmed it.”

Cara’s progress since then has been nothing short of awe inspiring. Recently, she shared her victories on our Community Forum:

I started this path needing a wheelchair outside the home, barely able to walk 60 feet, with a chore service provider and my mother doing nearly everything for me. Now I’m walking every day and closing in on a mile—I’ll make it by summer. One day I’ll hike in the mountains again. One day I’ll put on cross-country skis.

I can stand in the shower, bend over the bathtub and scrub it out, push a vacuum cleaner, do laundry, bake cookies—and eat them too! I can shop and cook for myself. I can pretty much do whatever I want. In the fall I took a trip back east and spent four months in Connecticut. It was my first time traveling since 2008. I have my life back—and I love it. I love myself.

When I started DNRS I was too weak to attend a seminar,so I took the online course. All the information needed for recovery was right there. Nothing was missing. A seminar may be the ideal but it isn’t necessary. And that’s very important to know right now. Full recovery is possible using the DVDs and online course.

Having spent nearly a decade virtually housebound, it’s a bit strange to be re-entering a world that is currently in retreat. Just as I can finally go out and do whatever I want, I find myself back inside. But that’s okay. I’m thriving—my life is better now than it’s ever been. This curious moment we’re living in is a tremendous opportunity. It may be full of uncertainty, but it is also full of creative possibility. Thanks to DNRS, I have all the tools I need to make the most of it.

I am not the same person I was when I started down this path. I am stronger, more resilient and happier. I am calmer, more at ease, and kinder to myself and others. At age 60 I’m blossoming.

Together we’re making miracles happen. Believe it.

What is Cara’s message to those who are still suffering? “Never give up. If doubt ever creeps in, or you have a hard day (I had many of them), watch a video testimonial. Keep a daily DNRS journal so you can track your positive progress. Follow and practice the program with as much dedication and enthusiasm and appreciation as you can muster. Work with a coach if you’re able to. Never ever forget that many others have walked this path before you and have fully recovered. Laugh and smile and be grateful everyday. Read the gratitude posts on the community forum and share your gratitude with others. Have confidence in your recovery.

I am 60 years old. Over the course of sixteen months I went from needing a wheelchair outside of the home to walking one mile. At six months I was able to go to a salon and have my hair cut for the first time in over a decade. I can grocery shop and cook and eat whatever I want. I can drive again. I can read books and listen to music and watch movies. I can spend an hour gardening and work up a sweat while doing it. This past year I fell in love and am now in a relationship for the first time in nearly two decades. If I can do all of that, if I can recover at age 60 after 15 years of illness, you can do it too. You can recover.”

    I have all the same things and have been doing DNRS so this makes me hopeful!! Thank you for sharing your story!!! So happy for you!

    Thank you, Cara! I tried this 4 years ago, but was still living in a house with mold, and then we were getting ready to move to another city, so I gave up. I’m redoing the dvd training now. I have less brain fog, out of the mold, and it’s making more sense to me now. I’m studying it in depth, this time. I have Lyme, Bartonella, Chronic Fatique, hearing loss, MCS etc. I’m 62, and have had these illnesses for 43 years, but haven’t given up. I should be starting the full practice in a couple of days. Did you use a DNRS coach? I’m thinking about it. I’m so happy for you!!!❤️

      Hey Andrea! We are very similar in that I have have also been sick for over 50 years! (I’m now 59) I tried doing DNRS when I was still living in a mold home (didn’t know it at the time!) so I am now just getting back to it! I did 7 weeks solid, 4 rounds a day, and definitely noticed mental/emotional shifts but no physical. I felt a bit discouraged but read over and over it can take those of us who have been sick SO long longer to heal. I stopped due to family trauma and now back at it. Would love to connect and maybe do buddy rounds if you’re up for it? I did that before w a couple gals and it really helped me to stay motivated and committed. Blessings !!!

    Andrea, Yes. I worked with a coach throughout. Her support and guidance was indispensable for me especially during the first six months. Because I wasn’t able to go to a workshop I think coaching was even more important. Just my opinion. I also relied a lot on the support of the forum. One step at a time. It doesn’t matter how long the journey takes. Good luck to you. Happy rewiring. 🙂

    You give me hope, Cara. Thank you for your story! I had severe mold issues too during a very long time. I got out of it 80% and was getting my life back on tracks after 5 dark years in bed. I did it with the DVD’s. Then I got bitten by a tick and am now back down the slope. I do the DNRS again since half a year. I also have to listen to people like Mike Dooley etc to make me CHOOSE a better world. If I don’t do this, I slide back in panicks and ‘ITS’. When I think of the reckless releases of all these ‘men’-made satellites then I panick like a child. These things do influence my healing path.. I do know however that indeed you can CHOOSE for this better world in your imagination. Thank you so much for sharing your healing path with us.

    Cara, but I meant Andrea of course.

  • Hadewych Verschueren June 27, 2020 2:08 am

    Thank you so much Cara for this story. Andrea, your story is so similar to mine. I am 62 now.

  • Wendy June 28, 2020 7:29 pm

    Hi Andrea, I appreciate your story so much and relate tremendously – age, condition, length of illness +++. I am just about to start DNRS training.. Your write up is also so timely because of your mention of world situation. I was wondering about that. I am interested in when you started working with a coach and if you also did the 12 week group support program. Thank you!

    Hi Wendy, I had my first coaching session 12 days after starting DNRS. She was able to guide me in a way that made my rounds more effective, so personally I’m glad I didn’t wait too long. But of course it’s very individual. I did not do the 12 week support groups because it’s new and wasn’t available. Were I starting now, and give the “world situation” I probably would do it for the extra support. Good luck to you. Believe in your recovery! 🙂

  • Wendy July 7, 2020 12:58 pm

    Thank you so much for responding! And so happy for you.
