Dynamic Neural Retraining System™ (DNRS™) with Annie Hopper
Currently offered as a 5-day workshop in select towns across the United States, Canada, and beyond, and as a 14-hour DVD series.
From the DNRS website: The Dynamic Neural Retraining System™ workshops and DVD series reveal the science behind Limbic System impairments and prepare participants to critically engage with their condition.
The Dynamic Neural Retraining System™ is a drug free, self-directed, neuroplasticity-based treatment that is taught from a platform of environmental awareness. This intensive program is experiential in nature and focuses on normalizing the unconscious threat and survival mechanism within the limbic system of the brain. The program integrates components of cognitive-behaviour therapy, mindfulness based cognitive restructuring, emotional restructuring therapy, neural linguistic programming and incremental exposure and behavior modification therapy.
This mechanism-targeted behavioral intervention focuses on the training of a number of regulatory skills including attention focusing, attention distraction, cognitive reappraisal, emotional distancing, emotion regulation as well as experiential and incremental exposure therapy to contexts of perceived risk.
The DNRS program examines how various forms of trauma can affect the stress and protective mechanisms in the brain, how this affects overall health, and how this brain trauma manifests on physical, psychological, and emotional levels. Patients learn how to effectively interrupt the maladapted ‘fight-or-flight’ stress response and stop the flood of stress-initiated biochemicals that activate cytokine activity and inflammation. Patients also learn to remap the neural circuits that influence survival and stress mechanisms, thereby normalizing sensory perception, detoxification, immune function, and inflammatory responses.
Limbic System Retraining is an accumulative practice. The more you do it the better it gets.
For best results a commitment of daily practice over a consecutive six month period is required to better establish and reinforce changes.
Seminar venues are chosen with environmental awareness, along with a strict “no chemicals” guideline for all participants to ensure comfort and safety for those who are severely chemically intolerant. Class sizes are limited to twenty participants per seminar.
Conditions that have been positively impacted using DNRS™:
- Multiple Chemical Sensitivities
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
- Electric Hypersensitivity Syndrome
- Chronic Pain
- Gulf War Syndrome
- Food Sensitivities
- Postural Orthostatic
- Tachycardia Syndrome

Additional Support There are currently four Certified DNRS™ Coaches on staff to assist Annie with providing DNRS™ support:
Christine Lindberg joined the DNRS team having recovered from post trauma and anxiety issues, chronic joint pain, fatigue and digestive issues through DNRS. Christine is passionate and eager to now help others regain their health, and be set free from the devastating impact of chronic illness. Christine has been an adult educator and group facilitator for over 20 years. She has a B.A. in Human and Social Development with a focus in youth and family counseling as well as a Bachelor of Education. She is thrilled to bring these skills to her role as a Dynamic Neural Retraining Instructor and DNRS Coach.Christine Lindberg
Michelle Bubnis Michelle Bubnis joined the DNRS team after recovering from electrical hypersensitivity and chemical sensitivity. Michelle has 21 years of experience as a teacher, counselor and school administrator. With a BS in life science and a masters degree in education with an emphasis in counseling, she is eager to bring her skills to the DNRS program.Michelle Bubnis
Alita Hetland is a successful graduate of the Dynamic Neural Retraining System and no longer suffers from a limbic system disorder – an issue that plagued her for over 20 years. For Alita, this impairment manifested as symptoms of fatigue, nausea, shakiness, reactivity to chemicals, heightened sense of smell and lack of mental clarity associated with Multiple Chemical Sensitivities and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Alita had been to see countless of well-meaning specialists throughout the years, however they were not able to assist her in a full recovery. Thrilled to have finally found the answer, Alita is excited to be able to assist others on their path to wellness and honored to be a DNRS Coach. She also works as a career counselor assisting clients in overcoming their barriers and developing their individual path to achieving their goals.Alita Hetland
Prior to DNRS, Jana Smith had suffered from Chronic Pain, Chronic Fatigue, Migraines, Multiple Chemical Sensitivity, Anxiety, Depression, and severe Food Sensitivities. Jana even grew all of her own food, yet still she was sick. Nothing offered hope until she found the Dynamic Neural Retraining System in 2013. Jana has a Bachelor of Science in Health Education with a minor in Biology, and a Master of Arts in Teaching Health Education. She taught High School Health, Anatomy and Physiology, and Health Occupations for a few years before starting a family. To read Jana’s recovery story, please go to: overcomingfoodsensitivities.com. Jana is not accepting new clients at this time.Jana Smith
