What is Dynamic Neural Retraining System (DNRS)? Founded by Annie Hopper, a limbic system rehabilitation specialist, DNRS claims to be a neuroplasticity-based treatment method for chronic illnesses, some physical and some psychological.

If we break it down, neuroplasticity is basically the functioning of different networks in our brains. These networks allow the brain to grow (or shrink), organize, direct and redirect depending on the environment we’re in at any given time.

Members of the medical field who oversee DNRS treatment say that the disorganization of neuroplasticity in our brains aggravates stress levels (due to more neurons misfiring) which in turn, exacerbate other illnesses. But if we get to the root of the issue, find out what aggravated the stress levels in the first place; it would alleviate a lot of negative issues.

When a patient signs up for the program, which is completely drug-free, he or she learns various exercises that help modify behavior patterns that cause neurons to misfire. Once one is able to do that, the modified patterns help activate or give more power to healing mechanisms.

In other words, significantly re-adjust our neuroplasticity to where it’s working for us instead of against us. The exercises consist of visual, spatial and movement restructuring. In layman’s terms, it’s basically to change how we perceive, act and move about in a specific environment and specific circumstances.

The aforementioned content is obviously simplified to give you, the reader, a general idea of DNRS is. There are obviously a lot more intricacies involved then what I’ve listed. In this particular article, my aim is to simply provide an introduction to the treatment, which, not surprisingly, has invited some skepticism.

In doing my research for this topic, I found that while many are in support of this treatment (including a few that have utilized it and found it highly efficacious), there are some that have dismissed it.

Which begs the obvious question; does the treatment actually work more often than not? I’ll explore that question in the second part of this article.
