Happy Brain, Happy Life

Two and a half weeks ago I started a new treatment program for E.I. (specifically for the MCS and Chronic Fatigue). It's called the Dynamic Neural Retraining System (, developed by Annie Hopper. This program teaches you how to retrain your brain and as a result experience diminished symptoms or complete recovery!

I'm fascinated by all I'm learning about the brain. Most of the treatments I've used work on the body, but now I realize how important it is to address the brain as well.

The brain is the control center for our life - for both conscious and unconscious thoughts, behaviors, feelings, functions, etc. When the brain is healthy and happy, then life is healthy and happy. =)
(That may be oversimplifying, but you get the idea.)

It's important to understand that the brain is affected by its environment, both internally and externally. It also has the ability to change - both for better and for worse. Thankfully, along with our amazing brain, God has also given us a mind, spirit and will - with which we can make choices that will direct the changes in our brain in a positive direction.

I wish I could share with you all the information I'm learning about the brain, but it's just too much for one post! I hope you'll be inspired to do some research and learning of your own about the incredible brain God has given you.

In the meantime, whether you're in a process of retraining your brain or not, I thought you'd enjoy reading this article:
It lists 25 things to do when retraining the brain, but I think these are also great things to do simply to promote and maintain a healthy, happy brain...and thus a healthy, happy life. =)

Retraining the brain is not a quick or easy job. The program I'm doing requires a 6 month commitment. But I'm already seeing positive results from it, and I'm excited about having a healthy, happy brain once again! =)
