If you’ve happened upon this blog looking for info, you may have noticed that I stopped updating it.
That’s because I committed whole-heartedly to a program called the Dynamic Neural Retraining System.
I learned about it a mast cell support group, from someone who’d been really sick with MCAS for five years. Like, way worse than I ever got– she couldn’t even leave her house without wearing a mask, because of how often she went into anaphylaxis.
She used the Dynamic Neural Retraining System, which is a neuroplasticity–based, mind-body program, to rewire her brain. And it gave her her life back.
As soon as I heard her talking about it, I was so intrigued. If you’ve read my other blogs, you’ll know that I’m a huge believer in how the nervous system can play such a key role in determining our experience of things like chronic pain.
Once I realized there was a strong relationship between the nervous system and the immune system, it was like a little light-bulb went on over my head.
So I purchased the program last fall and committed to doing it for an hour a day, every day, for a minimum of 6 months.
It’s August now, and I’m doing so much better. The vast majority of my mast cell symptoms I had are gone, and the remaining symptoms are improving every day.
DNRS works by taking your brain out of a chronic state of fight-or-flight, and rewiring it to build the neural networks associated with rest, digest, and healing.
And it’s absolutely incredible how this can really turn people’s lives around.
It is still hard for me to talk, in detail, about everything I’ve been through, although I do plan to share more about my mast cell journey in the future.
For now, I strongly recommend you check out the following blogs to see stories of people who’ve used DNRS to recover from mast cell activation (along with other conditions).
These are some of the stories that really gave me hope, when I was struggling to believe that this could ever get better:
Another great blog is Jana Smith’s– she didn’t have mast cell, but she had a lot of weird food allergies and other things going on with her immune system:
You can also learn more by watching the DNRS testimonials on Youtube.
