Dottie - Multiple Chemical Sensitivities for 10 years
Method of Recovery: Dynamic Neural Retraining System DVD Series


I started the program December 10th and immediately had great success with diminished response to fragrances, etc. Now, after three months, I just returned home from a week's vacation to Hawaii. I had no problems with anything and was thrilled to experience traveling after 10 years of not being able to go anywhere due to overwhelming reactions to perfumes, food vapors, laundry products on hotel linens, airplanes were out of the question being in that closed container and what if someone opened a bag of chips or something, etc. I flew on four flights, the longest one was six hours, and despite the food being served and being in close quarters with many people wearing chemical fragrances, laundry products on their clothing, etc., I had NO PROBLEM at all!! On the plane I discreetly went through the steps in my mind, using small hand gestures and imagining all the positions as if I was doing in in my living room. It worked! In Kauai I went snorkeling using rented equipment, used the hotel towels after showering (out of the question a few months ago), took a helicopter tour, rode on a crowded bus for a garden tour, went shopping, ate many new foods and even toured a coffee plantation and sample their coffees in paper cups, all without fear or worry. This program gave me my life back!! I feel great, have plenty of energy, and can't wait for my next adventure.

Susan - Multiple Chemical Sensitivities for 7 years

One of my continuing challenges is to spend time in my mother's house.

Before my growing recovery, I wasn't able to be inside for more than 2 minutes before "its" drove me outside.

Two days ago I went for a vist that lasted approx. 3 hours. Then we went out to dinner (lots of challenges there) plus returned to her house for another 45 minute visiting time.

On my way home I stopped at a big box home improvement store waiting to have paint custom matched adding even more time to successful challenges.

Blessed freedom! Bubbling joy! I welcome my neutral, calm self back with open arms and heart.

I've had huge success, especially with one on one situations; I'm yet to tackle the large groups that gave me troubles in the past but expecting that will come soon. I am continuing to read all the suggested reading on the brain and continue to be amazed at this little known field of neuroplasticity. Thanks again to Annie for sharing this with us. It truly is encouraging and inspiring.

Fall brings a new freshness and excitement of change.

I want everyone to know my health is continuing to improve and for me that means a my brain is returning to it's abilities and normal functions before MCS.

I really don't know how I even kept my job for the last five years, I think I winged it and barely got by. But now I feel I that I have almost recovered fully, well lets say 95% because I never really was a hundred percent...lol.

I'm really happy that I convinced a long time friend named Patty to take Annie's next course.

Patricia - Multiple Chemical Sensitivity for 6 years
Method of Recovery: Dynamic Neural Retraining System In-Person Program


Thank you so much for the help your program has provided. It has liberated me from past reactions. As you likely recall originally I had to use a mask to protect myself from chemical allergies. As a result of your program I am now able to go without my mask, even in settings I would never have believed possible for me.

Recently I made 4 or 5 plane trips back and forth to Regina, without my mask and without incident. I have diligently done my exercises an hour a day ever since leaving your class. While in Regina, I was staying in a house that was built about a year ago. So at the beginning of my stay, I had to double up my exercises for 2 days (an hour twice daily) in order to deal with the increase of chemicals in my immediate environment. After that, with just doing the exercises once a day, I was fine from then on, in that same house. I have since, made several trips back and forth to that new house, staying there for a week or more at a time, and have never had a problem again.

Clara - Multiple Chemical Sensitivity and Electrical Sensitivity for 12 years
Method of Recovery: Dynamic Neural Retraining System In-Person Program

I found that when I was in San Francisco while taking DNRS and living at my Aunt's house, the changes occurred faster than my first weeks home again in Houston. I even had some setbacks at first that manifested as greater fatigue. It wasn't because my home was an unsafe place but because the setting, objects, activities and even people had become associated with sadness, inability, and stagnancy.

When a symptom occurs, it's easy to become attached to feelings of frustration and disappointment.
In my mind or aloud, when a symptom occurs, instead of letting my subconscious say, "Oh no, a symptom," I change it to, "Cool! An opportunity to rewire, make awesome changes and show my brain how brilliant and capable it is."

I notice though that sometimes the body/brain has to do its own thing before the symptoms change. I might simply feel calm, then calmer and happier and more stable before the symptoms start going away.

I've spent nearly all my spare time practicing and it's paid off tremendously. I'm sleeping in a bed now! I used to have to sleep on a leather couch in the hallway. My back and body loves it and I can feel my mind become clearer and focused over time.

I’ve also noticed a great reduction in allergies and improved immune system function. I have more energy, improved ability to focus, and my body temperature is balanced now. Before I constantly had really cold extremities (hands and feet). And overall I’m much more confident, trusting and present.

I've been busy with a work project. It's also the time of the year here where there are lots of out of town visitors and many, many wonderful outdoor concerts, art shows, parties, etc. This is high season in Florida. I'm enjoying it all immensely thanks to Annie and this work she taught us.

I continue to make progress. I'm able to do much more than I have in many years. I get to play on the weekends now.

I felt happy and positive this week. I took several long beach walks in addition to attending yoga class. It's sooooo fun! It's also high allergy season in the air and I have no, none, 0 symptoms!

I took our car in for service. In the past I would have to leave the garage, but this time I SAT in
the waiting room next to the open garage where they work on the cars, and I was fine! That same day I shopped in Home Depot and Bed Bath and Beyond without any issues. Normally I have to run in andout of these places but I was focused and calm and did not struggle with any smells!

Just back from Mexico and as always super busy in the garden. In this trip I was able to stay in my sisters home!!! Big deal! Her house is newly remodeled and I've been unable in the past to be in there for 5 minutes. I spent the night!

The funny thing was, when I opened the window at night for some air, the neighbor was using TIDE! I ignored it and fell asleep.

At the dentist office the gal working on me has perfume on. I began to feel a slight headache then stopped myself. It took GREAT focus but I did it and the cleaning was then quickly over.
- Two Months Results Observation


I participated in Annie Hopper's Neuroplasticity Program in February 2010. We met on a windy, cloudy, rainy day in a clubhouse overlooking San Francisco.

The weather brought an auspicious feeling of promise. I can still recall the affects the wind had on our shelter as we poked away at the functions of the brain unknown to most of us prior to this gathering.

Everyone came with a story and a sincere desire to move forward in life. My heart was filled with the hope of eliminating environmental illness from my vocabulary. And I must admit I rarely talk about it these days.

In a nutshell, the program has paid off immensely for me and I remain committed to the exercises as needed.

Please understand that this time last year you could never have told me that in July I would be on a plane to the east coast, renting a (new) car, staying in hotels and eating out.

Last month I did all of these things.

In May and June I went to a night club to hear music, stay committed to a taking a dance class I adore even though it had just been newly painted, and starting using a few essential oils in my practice again and even danced in our local summer solstice parade. So much joy in feeling well.

On an airplane back to CA a woman in front of me had perfume on. Hmm. I started my exercises and the perfume lost its grip on me. The woman turned out to be a sweet, caring, grandmother - someone that in the past I would have turned into a monster in my mind for wearing something uncomfortable to me.

Initially I hesitated when Annie told me the cost of the program because like everyone I have a budget but the minute I said yes to it, the money came.

Annie gently leads one out of feeling like a victim and into our innate right to be who the heck we truly are or imagine we can become.

I'm so appreciative for this program and I will continue to discover more about the capacity of the brain because I'm hooked. I don't think anything is a free ride so I do participate with the unfolding and it does require some time and patience but it works.

Gary - Multiple Chemical Sensitivity MCS for 10 years
Method of Recovery: Dynamic Neural Retraining System In-Person Program

My name is Gary. I am 47 yrs old.

I was born a perfectly healthy baby in the fall of 1962 and lived 38 yrs without any known allergies. In the year 2000 I developed full blown MCS and was almost immediately forced to live the life of a recluse.

I spent a year in a tent and subsequent years living partially in my car as well as various ocean locations that I felt were safe.

Along the way I consulted with at least 30 medical doctors with varying backgrounds ranging from environmental to neural and everything in between. I tried acupuncture, allergy injections, glutathione protocols, neutraceuticals, mind drugs, ALF and many more symptom management aids. This holy grail consumed roughly $350,000 of my savings.

Annie is a pragmatic realist that has a similar history to my own so I can really relate to her past. Annie introduced me to the Norman Doidge book "The Brain That Changes Itself", it was like reading the blueprint for my cure. I always believed that something in my brain had mis-wired itself as a result of prolonged stress and this book started to give me insight that I could dig out and re-wire my brain.

Annie teaches a program that combines some really unique exercises that I believe have now for the first time in 10 yrs put me on a clear path to recovery. Everyday I practice an hour a day as per her instructions.

Within the first week of training I was feeling better then I have in 10yrs. I now consider myself 99.9% better and I look forward to the day when MCS is a thing of the past for everyone. Annie is a great healer and she will remain my hero for a long time to come!!

Thinking back to the MCS days, it seems almost foreign somehow - like some kind of bad dream that I woke up out of. My life is pretty much what it was prior to getting sick, except the only thing that's changed is my gratitude for simple things. I continue to go where I want, when I want to, anytime I want. No challenges, just smooth sailing.

The most important element of practice is consistency. Taking note of subtle improvements form the fabric that is ones recovery.

Carmen - Multiple Chemical Sensitivity for 20 Years
Method of Recovery: Dynamic Neural Retraining System In-Person Program


My name is Carmen, I am 49 years old and I have had MCS for the last 20 years.

The first 16 years I managed to live an almost normal life. I gradually had reactions to perfumes, paints and other chemical products, but would recover every time upon removing myself from the area.

It wasn't until April of 2006, after spending a whole afternoon in a restaurant with some smokers that I became very sick and never managed to recover.

Then minimum exposure gave me headaches and dizziness. Everything changed, I couldn't go out anymore I lost a lot of friends, I even lost faith in life.

I had a very significant inability to think clearly. I had difficulty sleeping. I woke up in the morning exhausted, with terrible headaches and back pain. I tried all sorts of treatments but nothing worked.

I took the DNRS retraining system in Montreal in January of 2010. Since the very first day I noticed a change. At the end of the day my daughter invited some friends into my house, some were wearing perfume but I didn't have any reaction. I even slept the whole night.

By the end of the third day, my symptoms had decreased by 80%.

Now three months later I am going shopping, to restaurants, etc. I even went to New York for a few days and I had no reactions. Now I am able to sit in my backyard without even noticing the fabric softener dryer fumes from neighbouring homes.

I do recommend the DNRS program to anyone who has MCS . If I have to rate Annie's program, I would give her a 10.

Thank you Annie. You've changed my life.

If I had tried to go into Shopper’s Drug Mart prior to taking the DNRS Program I would have been instantly hit with a wall of putrid chemical smells. Today I can walk in and I am totally oblivious to that smell. I can notice when things are fragrant but I do not have any reactions at all.

In fact, surprisingly some things that I used to react to actually now smell good. Not that I would go ever go back to using chemicals, it’s just nice not to live my life in avoidance anymore. I’m excited that I can look for a job now without having to wonder if the fragrances there would bother me or not. I can also handle wood smoke better as well!

I’m much happier now and more optimistic about life!

Thanks Annie!

I can still remember the reaction that I had to the smell in the room of the DNRS program in Victoria in September, and how I was concerned, that first evening, that I would either have to mask up for the rest of the weekend or take the course another time, in a different location. I was amazed that when I returned the following morning to the same room that I experienced zero reactions to the smell (old fir flooring). I noticed since then, many many times when I have a knee-jerk reaction to something, I use the DNRS exercises and the reaction would be gone instantly.

John - Multiple Chemical Sensitivity MCS for 3 Years
Method of Recovery: Dynamic Neural Retraining System In-Person Program


I took the DNRS Program 5 weeks ago now and I have noticed an 80% improvement in my health so far and a very significant reduction in my chemical sensitivity. For some time now since taking the program I have allowed myself to be exposed to fragrances and although I still do not "like" them, I have had no reaction to them at all.

In fact over the last two days I made a quick return trip to Vancouver via ferry and bus. What was new was that I did not feel the need to wear a mask, neither on the ferry nor on the bus. I did smell fragrances off and on but I did not react to them. I also took the Vancouver city buses to go places, without being bothered by fragrances. Clearly there has been a significant reduction in my chemical sensitivity!

I'm so glad I took the DNRS Program!

Thank you Annie Hopper

Abigail - Multiple Chemical Sensitivity MCS for 10 Years

I went to Office Depot and was okay, so I went to Staples, I was again okay. I had no awareness of any scents in my car or on me afterwards. Felt normal. Went to Wal-Mart, (the "Pinnacle" although Michaels is a twin), and was okay. Again, I had no awareness of any scents on me or in my car with me after I left.
When home, I always change into my "home" clothes and did this. BUT, about 2 hrs later I was able to wear the same shirt to go get the mail and did not discern any scent and had no difficulty wearing this shirt whenever I went out for the next couple of days... unheard of before DNRS! (I always had to launder everything immediately after being out.) I am also more patient and tolerant with my husband. I guess more "normal". Nice.

Things are going well, and I am now officially past the 6 month mark! hurray for me!!
We were able to go shopping at Target with no problem. I am tolerating smells of various sorts with none of the old debilitating reactions. We were able to purchase and drive a newer model car and despite noticing the new car odors and driving it over 2000 km on a recent trip, I was not debilitated by the scent.
- 6th month Follow-up


Over two days we had the kitchen sink and bathtub refinished (with the least toxic product) and I am not reacting to the chemicals or smells. I made sure to stay away from it as much as possible as it is full of toxins. We took measures to make sure the bedroom was free of odour. The first night I was in a panic (but not because of the smells) and had to do DNRS through the night because I thought that with my past history, what if I did react and get sick again? I got through the first night without any reactions. I slept through the night on the 2nd night. As I sit here, on the 3rd morning, I can get a whiff of the smell, but I'm fine.

Joanne - Multiple Chemical Sensitivity MCS for 34 Years
Method of Recovery: Dynamic Neural Retraining System In-Person Program


After the second day of training I noticed a very big difference in my reaction to chemicals. I would specifically react to a shampoo that my daughter used. I would immediately get migraine headaches and brain fog with exposure to it. After the second day of training I no longer reacted to her shampoo. That was the first really big sign that things had shifted.

In fact the other day I was shopping and this woman was literally “bathed” in perfume. It seemed like everywhere that I went she would follow, and so would her perfume. Prior to the DNRS program I would immediately get a disabling migraine headache, along with brain fog and disorientation. But this time I stayed for 15 minutes before my nose started to get stuffed up. But still, no headache or other debilitating symptoms.

I still find cologne and perfumes annoying, because really I don’t understand why people need to wear them to begin with, however with The Dynamic Neural Retraining System my body can tolerate it better and I don’t have to live my life in “avoidance mode.”

My mother-in-law also uses a hand cream that prior to brain retraining was highly toxic for me. We joked when she “tested” my newfound wellness with applying the lotion when I came for a visit. When she applied it, I could definitely smell the scent of the lotion; however I did not react in any way to the chemicals within it. In fact, I totally forgot that she had it on.

Things are going great with the chemical sensitivity! It is really amazing how something so easy can be so life changing. Lindsey’s boyfriend came over last night to talk to me with strong cologne on. I thought ‘this is strong’, but that was it! My body didn't react at all. Things are great!
