How The Dynamic Neural Retraining System Works

The Dynamic Neural Retraining System is a drug-free, neuroplasticity-based program developed by Annie Hopper. Neuroplasticity is defined as the brain’s ability to create and modify neural pathways in response to new experiences and change. The basis is that chronic illness, stress and disease can unconsciously cause the pathways in one’s brain to rewire and get stuck in a perpetual trauma loop. The neuroplasticity-based practices taught in DNRS is meant to guide you in consciously interrupting the trauma cycle associated with limbic system impairment.

DNRS combines aspects of many different therapies such as:

-Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
-Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP)
-Mindfulness based approaches
-Behavior Modification Therapy
-Incremental Therapy

The Dynamic Neural Retraining System integrates features of the above therapies.

While DNRS does not replace emergency, medical, or mental health intervention, I feel DNRS offers uniquely experienced and knowledgeable support and tools for suffering individuals.

The following are the DNRS resources and services I used:

The Instructional Video Series

The $350 DNRS Video Program is done in your own home. Annie Hopper, founder of the DNRS program, provided information on neuroplasticity and limbic system impairment, as well as the tools. You also have the option to order the written transcript. For me it was helpful to reinforce and remember the content if I read along while watching the videos, but it is also helpful for individuals who experience light and/or sound sensitivities to read the print version. I felt that this format helped me become more familiar with how the brain works and can adapt to change. This knowledge gave me a strong foundation and before attending the 5 Day Interactive Training Seminar. Now, DNRS offers the online 12-week guided LIVING DNRS Sessions.

I read the book Wired for Healing, written by the creator of DNRS, Annie Hopper. The book covers the science and rational behind the protocol.


This is where I attended the DNRS Interactive Training Seminar: Ojai, CA.

When you purchase the program, you gain free access to a very supportive Online Global Community Forum. What I loved about the forum was the ability to ask questions of past or present participants, as well as having the chance to celebrate each other’s successes in addition to my own. After purchasing the video program, you will also have the opportunity to add on one-on-one phone sessions with a DNRS Coach to address specific questions you may have. This helped me ensure I was implementing the program in the way that was best suited for me. The coaches share special insight because they themselves used this protocol. It need not matter what conditions your coach recovered from because each coach receives training in all forms of limbic system impairments and conditions.

Astoundingly, “over 90% of people who have implemented the program on a consistent basis report a substantial improvement in their quality of life within six months” (Dynamic Neural Retraining System, n.d.).
