Freedom from MCSHundreds – if not thousands – of people have been using the DNRS™ and Gupta Amygdala Retraining™ programs over the past few years to successfully heal their chemical sensitivity, chronic fatigue syndrome, electrical sensitivity, fibromyalgia, chronic pain, depression, as well as PTSD, OCD and other anxiety related disorders. The large majority of these people have removed themselves from both the virtual and physical “illness communities” they may have been a part of in the past in order to heal and move forward with their lives. Many of these people do not end up coming back to share their stories, as they have moved on from the days of illness and are happily living their lives out with a whole new cast of characters. We’re happy for them – thrilled, actually! – but those of us still struggling with brain retraining, or not yet convinced of the efficacy of the programs, could really use the inspiration that comes from hearing about others’ successes.

Which is why I decided to start an ongoing list here. When I see public declarations of healing from the DNRS™, Gupta program, and other brain retraining modalities, I will post them on this article. If I am missing someone’s story, please feel free to leave a comment below or email me privately through the contact form on this site to let me know.

Now get ready to be inspired!

Annie Hopper’s Dynamic Neural Retraining System™ (DNRS™)

Danish photographer Thilde Jensen took Annie Hopper’s DNRS™ workshop and experienced a huge shift on the second day. She says she has since recovered about 80% from chemical and electrical sensitivity – enough to continue working on her Canaries photographic documentary book project. Images from the collection have been published in the NY Times and exhibited worldwide. Read her recovery story here and be sure to watch her video testimonial at the bottom of the article.

Planet Thrive member T-Can has shared on this website how he used DNRS™, EFT, and other tapping modalities to recover completely from chemical sensitivity. He has shared in detail about his recovery approach and progress on his Planet Thrive blog throughout the entire process. I remember when he first arrived at Planet Thrive, concerned about his chemical sensitivity and about to start the DNRS™ program. In a relatively short time, he has his life back – bigger and better than before! He is back at work, going to parties, and still applying the brain retraining techniques regularly in order to make sure all the new neural networks are fully entrenched. His commitment to his own health and to brain retraining is an absolute inspiration!

Linda Worthington developed severe chemical sensitivity, chronic fatigue syndrome and electrical sensitivity in her 70’s and recovered her health using both the Gupta program and DNRS™, plus other modalities such as QiGong. She generously shared her recovery story on our website.

Planet Thrive founder Julie Genser shared how she used DNRS™, the Gupta program, and EFT to make huge strides in healing her severe fabric sensitivity that kept her from wearing much clothing or using any bedding for years after a toxic mold exposure and severe mercury poisoning (among other toxic injuries). She now has a much larger wardrobe and sleeps on a thin exercise futon with blankets. Not yet fully recovered, she is still working on her severe electrical sensitivity and other health issues using all of these modalities as well as others (for example, she had great success with shamanic healing sessions, as well).

Annie Hopper herself, of course, recovered from chemical sensitivity, electrical sensitivity and fibromyalgia using an early version of her program. She has since dedicated herself to helping others recover from limbic system impairment syndromes and has continually refined her program as she receives feedback from the field. Read more about her own personal recovery journey in her Planet Thrive interview.

Ashok Gupta’s Amygdala Retraining™ Program

Planet Thrive member “Lady Itchalot” (now going by Debbie Truly-Cured) was the first to publicly report a complete recovery from MCS and CFS using the Gupta program. She has remained a very active participant in the Planet Thrive Gupta Support Group in order to help guide others as they work the program. I remember photos of her in a Tyvek suit and respirator mask that she had to wear just to go food shopping. More recent Facebook photos show her tearing up the dance floor at her son’s wedding – Tyvek suit- and respirator-free. You’ve come a long way, baby!

Els Valkenburg, author of Understanding Multiple Chemical Sensitivity, has reported a complete recovery from severe chemical, electrical and food sensitivities using the Gupta program. Her Facebook page shows photos of her now traveling abroad, riding a motorcycle, and otherwise living it up! She details how she did the program on her website.

Susie Collins, founder and editor of the now defunct The Canary Report blog and community, sent her “last report” to members of The Canary Report recently saying she was now completely healed of MCS. She shared, “I’m happy to report that I no longer have Multiple Chemical Sensitivity! I can say from this experience that I believe Ashok Gupta’s hypothesis about and treatment for MCS is sound.” She then encouraged anyone with MCS to look into one of the brain retraining programs. When Susie started the program 9 months earlier, she experienced some immediate improvements – as detailed in her TCR posts during that time period. The Canary Report is now closed and those posts are no longer accessible.

Leslie of the Oko Box blog used the Gupta program to take her healing from MCS up to much higher levels. She shared: “Brain re-training helped me, I can’t put my finger on it but once I started thinking in a positive direction and got my brain outta auto-sick mind, my bravery and ability to do things doubled up ten fold times 100!” You can read about her recovery on her blog.

Ashok Gupta recovered himself from chronic fatigue syndrome over ten years ago using brain plasticity exercises that later formed the foundation of his Gupta Amygdala Retraining™ Program. You can read about his recovery in his Planet Thrive interview.

Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) and related “tapping” modalities

Planet Thrive member T-Can has shared on this website how he used DNRS™, EFT, and other tapping modalities to recover completely from chemical sensitivity. He has shared in detail about his recovery approach and progress on his Planet Thrive blog throughout the entire process. I remember when he first arrived at Planet Thrive, concerned about his chemical sensitivity and about to start the DNRS™ program.

Former Detox community member Kath has recovered from chemical sensitivity using an EFT program she customized entirely for free from information she found on the Internet. Kath has very generously shared her approach, including all her EFT scripts and resources on her very detailed post on this website. Thank you, Kath!

Diana Rose Kottle suffered from lyme disease, mold illness, chronic fatigue syndrome, chemical sensitivity, electromagnetic sensitivity, and vibration and sound sensitivity. She recovered about 70% of her health using Total Body Modification (TBM), Matrix Energetics, lifestyle modifications and other modalities. Faster EFT closed the gap, bringing her to about 97% healing. She was able to address the emotional underpinnings of her chronic illness, stop running from triggers, and live a healthy, full life from an empowered place. You can listen to her videos about her experience with Faster EFT here: A highly sensitive person uses Faster EFT. Diana now coaches others in their own recovery using Faster EFT and related modalities.

PT member Libby has documented her steady recovery from chemical sensitivities on her blog Healing from MCS. She devised her own brain retraining exercises from the start, and has since added many modalities to her healing toolbox, including EFT and Donna Eden’s Energy Medicine. She has been a complete inspiration to all of us at Planet Thrive.

There are countless others sharing many far-reaching health and lifestyle improvements in both the Gupta Support Group and DNRS™ Support Group in the Planet Thrive community. Hundreds are reclaiming their health and their lives – evidenced through their newfound freedom to go food shopping, access healthcare, socialize, return to work, take vacations abroad, pursue their hobbies, spend time with family members, and so much more. If you suffer from chemical sensitivity, electrical sensitivity, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, PTSD and other anxiety related disorders, please do yourself a favor and read through all of the testimonials and resources provided on this website to see if brain retraining is a tool you want to add to your own healing arsenal. To a happy and joyous life!
