Post Acute Covid Syndrome
Are You Suffering from Post Acute COVID Syndrome?
ARE YOU ONE OF THE LONG HAULERS?
The illness is REAL – this is NOT in your head.
The virus activated a protective “fight, flight or freeze” response in your brain, and despite the virus no longer being present, your brain can get stuck in this state, keeping your immune system in overdrive. This “five alarm” threat message can affect many systems of your body, leaving you in a cycle of chronic illness. If you have been experiencing symptoms for more than 2 months, and are testing negative for the virus, your brain might be stuck in this maladapted protective response.
The good news is that you can use the DNRS program to self-direct neuroplasticity to get the brain “unstuck” and stop the chronic illness cycle. The DNRS program is a drug- free, brain healing method that can be done from the comfort of you own home and at a pace that works for you.
Even a mild case of COVID-19 can leave the brain stuck in a chronic “fight, flight or freeze” response, immune system overdrive and dysautonomia. Dysautonomia is a disorder of the autonomic nervous system that wreaks havoc with “automatic” functions such as breathing, digestion and heart rate.
When a person has dysautonomia, the stress response is constantly firing and the body is unable to return to and maintain the rest and digest response. This leads to functional changes in the deep “safety and survival” circuits in the brain known as “limbic system impairment”.
- Brain Fog
- Rapid Heart Rate
- Gastrointestinal Symptoms
If you have contracted Covid-19 and have been experiencing any of the above symptoms for more than two months while testing negative for the virus, your brain could be stuck in a “fight, flight, or freeze” response that is keeping your body in a cycle of illness. DNRS can bring relief.
“Using DNRS has been literally a life saver… My strength and cardio capacity is way up… I am truly grateful for the ability to do this again and for all the major health improvements I continue to see.” – Victor
Debilitating viral post-infection impacts on the nervous and immune systems are well documented in medical literature. “Post-viral Syndrome” is often part of the story of suffering for many of our successful clients, who have fully recovered from their limbic system impairment through DNRS™.
Common symptoms of limbic system impairment and dysautonomia may include headaches, fatigue, brain fog, tachycardia, chronic joint or muscle pain, changes in sense of taste or smell, cognitive impairment such as the inability to concentrate, being forgetful or problems with memory. Gastrointestinal symptoms, difficulty breathing, changes in blood pressure, exercise intolerance, depression, anxiety and non-restorative sleep may also occur. Symptoms can be intermittent or persistent.
Let’s explore this idea more deeply.
As a self-protective mechanism, your brain switched into “high alert” to prepare your body to fight the virus.
This is often referred to as the “fight, flight or freeze” response. In other words, the virus prompted a natural self-protective mechanism that resulted in changes in the structure and function of the brain (neuroplasticity) to defend the host (you) against impeding danger (the virus).
The problem now is that the brain is stuck in this high alert response (limbic system impairment), even when the virus is no longer present. This can initiate an overactive immune response and ensuing inflammation that has various downstream effects in multiple systems of the body.
Let’s talk more about the brain and how the limbic system is involved with chronic illness.
The limbic system is a complex set of structures in the mid brain that includes the hypothalamus, hippocampus, amygdala and cingulate cortex.
It has been described as the “feeling and reacting brain”. It is constantly determining our level of safety and is closely integrated with the immune system (our defense against disease), the endocrine system (hormone regulation) and the autonomic nervous system (regulation of unconscious body processes like blood pressure and breathing and also regulates the functions of our internal organs such as the heart, stomach and intestines).
A number of factors can significantly impair limbic system function such as:
- Virus or Infection
- Chemical Exposure
- Mold Toxicity
- Psychological and/or Emotional Trauma
- Accumulated Stress
- Physical Trauma
Chronic activation of the deep protective circuits in the limbic system results in inappropriate activation of the immune, endocrine and autonomic nervous systems that can lead to varied and seemingly unconnected symptoms.
With the Dynamic Neural Retraining System you can retrain your brain, transform your health and reclaim your life.
The 14 Hour Instructional program is available in two formats: DVD Series or Online Course.
(packages start at $249.95)
Our DVD Series and Online Course runs for 14 hours in total. We recommend dedicating 4 days to learning the program when working with either of the instructional videos, but if this is not possible, you can watch at your own pace.
All formats of the program will leave you with a solid understanding of the limbic system and its function, an understanding of the science of neuroplasticity, and of course, the practical tools you will need to implement to rewire your brain and reclaim your health.
In order for the program to be effective, you will need to commit at least one hour per day to apply all elements of the program for six months. Some people start to notice changes within a couple of weeks. It is this daily repetition of the DNRS™ exercises that the new, healthy neural pathways become the “default” setting.

Additional Support Services
If you think you are suffering from chronic post COVID-19 symptoms, we invite you to explore DNRS™ in consultation with your health care provider to see if the program is right for you. The DNRS™ program can be implemented alongside any pharmaceutical or medical treatment you may be taking for chronic post COVID-19 symptoms. Let DNRS™ help you move your brain and body from a state of survival into a state of growth and repair, where healing can take place.
