“Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become.”
-Steve Jobs

In my last two articles, I provided a brief history and an introduction of what Dynamic Neural Retraining System (DNRS) exactly is. In this concluding part, I’ll provide feedback from both people I interviewed as well as people who were quoted publicly on whether DNRS proved to be beneficial to them.

A disclaimer here is necessary: Everyone’s mind and body functions differently. Before making any decision on whether to go forward with any kind of therapy, physical or psychological, listen to your mind and heart and if needed, consult a professional psychologist or counselor’s opinion.

Another disclaimer I need to add is that I am NOT affiliated with the DNRS program in any way. I have not yet tried it myself so this should not be construed as an advertisement or promotional material for the program. This post simply aims to educate people who are not aware on what this program entails should you be interested in trying it.

Firstly, there are two options to get into the DNRS program. One is to order a set of eight instructional DVDs that roughly cost anywhere from $249 to $300 depending on which set you order. The second option is attending the seminars they hold. I have yet to confirm an exact figure for them but my research suggests it’s somewhere in the thousands.

Admittedly, that’s expensive. That is why I have compiled feedback on the program and what exactly it entails. I interviewed three people (who will remain anonymous as per their request) and looked up columns, editorials and podcast interviews of four other people who tried it.

So what exactly does the program require in terms of time? Beth Yen, a blogger for the site bonaippetit.com who tried the program, stated in an article that the program on the DVDs provide a combination of self-guided meditation, visualization exercises and some physical exercises as well. She noted that if you’re bed-ridden or physically handicapped, alternatives are provided.

The program requires an hour a day of your time. A local radio personality here in Texas that I interviewed said “A lot of the meditation and visualization exercises ask you to relive memories of the last time you were truly happy. It reminded me of the philosophies described in the book The Secret. After you do so, you’ll be asked to refer back to those memories in subsequent exercises. Basically, you’re retraining your brain to think a certain way in moments of adversity and peril.”

When asked if he found the program beneficial, he said, “I did. Overtime, I’ve found myself being much calmer in tense situations. I’ve always had an anxiety disorder and I did find that to be somewhat diminishing as time went on.”

When I asked a fellow writer who tried the program last year, she said, “The program was helpful in a lot of ways for me. Though I need to say, it’s certainly not this ‘miracle cure’ that it’s sometimes made out to be. It does take time and a lot of effort which can be quite arduous in the beginning. Nevertheless, it did help me in areas which other techniques and supplements have never been able to do. The element I appreciate the most; it’s completely drug-free. No harm or side effects.”

How long does it take to see results? In her article, Yen said she started to feel a difference after two weeks. The radio personality I interviewed said it took about four to five weeks before he felt any significant difference in his mental health. The writer echoed Yen’s sentiments and said it took about two to three weeks. Collectively, these quotes clearly indicate that the time it takes the program to make an impact (if any at all) varies from person to person.

I can conclude that collectively, the general feedback seems to be positive. To what extent the program can help a particular individual will always vary but it seems that there doesn’t seem to be any harm in trying. What it boils down to is the expensive cost. If it’s affordable, it’s seems worth a try. Personally, I will be seriously looking into it next year as currently, it’s out of my personal budget. But as of now, it does seem worth it.
