Kevin was a very successful top executive for a large information technology corporation. He was happily married and had five beautiful children. He was healthy, happy and had life by the tail – or so it seemed. And with his success he did what most people do - he bought a bigger and better house to go with his booming career. And that’s where life began to go sideways for Kevin.
Although their new home seemed like a dream home on the outside, it was actually a toxic stew on the inside. It wasn’t long after moving into the house that both Kevin and his wife started to become sick. In retrospect, Kevin realizes that it was probably a combination of mold exposure; the constant exposure to all of the chemicals in the new textiles in the house; and stress that created the ‘perfect storm’ that tipped him over the edge and into an abyss of illness and suffering.
Kevin’s health was slowly deteriorating and he was starting to react to common everyday chemicals that were found in cleaning products, laundry products and perfume. After seeing many different specialists to no avail, he finally decided to go to the Mayo clinic, so that once and for all he could put this behind him and move on with his life. But this mysterious illness – which was now affecting his ability to work and support his family, had even stumped a team of specialists at the Mayo Clinic. All the tests came back negative and they could not figure out what was making Kevin so sick.
One of the most baffling and debilitating symptoms for Kevin was his lack of cognitive function. He suffered from severe and chronic brain fog and at times could barely put a sentence together. And with every exposure to chemicals in everyday life, the symptoms continued to get worse.
Kevin was finally diagnosed with Multiple Chemical Sensitivities. On the recommendation of his environmental doctor, he drove 1600 miles in his van from New Mexico to Victoria, Canada to attend the Dynamic Neural Retraining System™ program. Kevin slept in his van over the three days it took to travel there as sleeping in a hotel was impossible due to the illness. His perseverance and determination to make this long journey would prove to be the most important decision of his life.
Five months after attending the Dynamic Neural Retraining System (DNRS) – a neuroplasticity program based on rewiring circuits in the brain that have been altered by chemical injury - Kevin states:
“Six months ago I was living a secluded, sheltered life in a remote area in New Mexico. Due to illness, I had to be physically separated from my wife and children and lived in a travel trailer that I had retrofitted with non-toxic materials. I couldn't travel or go into any other buildings and could only work on my computer for a couple of hours. My cognitive function was also affected and my life was very small.
With DNRS I realized that I had suffered a chemical brain injury that altered the way that my brain perceived chemicals and this was affecting my brain function, my body and ultimately my ability to function in the world. I learned how to rewire the circuits in my brain that had become disorganized through trauma, and amazingly, the symptoms are gone and I can live a normal life again. It's hard to believe how different my life is in such a short time.”
And I am happy to report that Kevin is now fully recovered and chooses daily to live a healthy and environmentally aware lifestyle. He travels on a regular basis now and best of all - he can travel by plane with his wife to visit his children.
