Lori has been using the Dynamic Neural Retraining System to recover from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Pain, Food Sensitivities, and Sensory Sensitivities.
Lori was first diagnosed with ME/CFS (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) in 2014. Life had become more and more challenging, with 2018 being her most limited year. “I was bed-bound or housebound at all times, with the exception of medical appointments and a couple of outings resulting in weeks of extreme recovery afterward.” She had visited numerous doctors and tried many different treatments and protocols in search of healing. “I had tried everything: two pages of different modalities, protocols, and specialists. I spent thousands of dollars on supplements, private pay clinics, energy healing, and so much more. But any relief I found was minimal and very short-lived.”
Lori found out about DNRS earlier this year after reading a blog post online that mentioned the program. She began the program soon after, and recently shared her exciting progress on our Community Forum:
After starting the program in April, mood elevation was the first change that I noticed. Some of my personality silliness and lightheartedness started coming back, and I began smiling and laughing more.
Energy was the second change that I noticed. When I started DNRS I found myself consistently able to get up out of the bath on my own instead of sitting there in a towel after the water had drained. I no longer needed to call my husband for help – I could get right up and out myself! Fast forward to today, I am now able to stand up and take a shower many days, wash my hair and blow-dry it myself!! I’m up out of bed more and am having fewer ME/CFS symptoms. My parents held a family reunion in August and I was able to be there this year, which was amazing!
I was also able to go look at a few houses this summer. We had been wanting to buy a house for a long time, but stayed renting a duplex with my supportive parents who walked our dog and sent over meals since my husband was busy with a full-time job, 3 kids, and doing all of the household tasks. Then we found our house and moved in last month! I was able to handle the stress of moving, and I found that since moving into our new place the shifts have really been happening.
I can also now consistently walk my own dog down the street myself and I am looking forward to taking her on longer and longer walks as I continue to progress. The sense of accomplishment I feel as these things have come back to me is incredible! Last week I helped my husband with some pruning in the front yard! And the other night we played a game with my step kids! And I even found myself putting on some background music! All of this is huge progress.
Being in a car as a passenger has become easier as I can now sit up with eyes open and no noise-canceling headphones on, and I’m able to much more easily process everything going by again. The other day we went over to see my parents and I didn’t even bring my headphones! I’m sleeping better, feeling better overall, and yes there are ups and downs in this healing process but the shifts are happening! Looking forward to so many things that I know will happen in the near future!
I am so very grateful for this program. I had tried so many different modalities and protocols before finding DNRS and I am so thrilled to have finally found what I’ve been looking for these past 5 years! Forever thankful to Annie, to my new DNRS friends, and to everyone that has been here for me and become a part of this journey! Sending love and light to everyone along for the ride on this journey!
To those who are still suffering, Lori’s message is, “When I initially heard about DNRS, I thought it was just positive thinking and meditation, which I had already been doing for years. I was so wrong and was surprised to discover that it was very physical. I learned how trauma (which for me was a virus) caused a limbic system impairment resulting in prolonged symptoms like post-exertional fatigue and brain and body inflammation. Now I have a way to begin to change that cycle.
I had tried everything, so I am thrilled to know that I have finally found what I’ve been looking for! I am forever grateful for this program for the way it is helping me heal. Life is so much more beautiful now!”
