Hopper: We truly can enjoy a wonderful life

With Christmas fast approaching, I thought I would share a story with you that I hope touches your heart as it did mine.

Many times a week I receive heart-felt emails from people who are reclaiming their lives through neuroplasticity.

With Christmas fast approaching, I thought I would share a story with you that I hope touches your heart as it did mine.

The story is about Gloria Doo, from Texas, who took the dynamic neural retraining system program one year ago.

Gloria wrote: “Unbeknown to me, there was mold at the school where I taught in 2003. Shortly thereafter, unexplained headaches turned into migraines. Symptoms gradually got worse and five years later, I was having seizures and stroke-like symptoms. I became allergic to all but 18 foods.

“When I would eat foods I had become allergic to, it would result in a mysterious paralysis!

“My quest to determine what was causing the strange and bizarre symptoms was actually the beginning of an experience that was like something out of a science fiction movie.

“Fifty-two (yes, 52!) doctors including general practitioners, chiropractors, allergists, neurologists  and specialists in gastro-intestinal, hormone, thyroid, etc., were all unable to determine the cause of my strange illness.

“My successful teaching career came to an abrupt halt. The diagnosis from Doctor # 53 was toxic encephalopathy. A Spect Scan revealed the mold on my brain (the injury).

“By October 2007, I had become a wheelchair-bound invalid. It was at this point, that my husband and I realized that I was most likely going to die, and that the death certificate would read “cause unknown.”

“After a 10-hour seizure that was triggered by a glass cleaner, local emergency room doctors confirmed our worst fear. If I were to survive they said ‘the risk of brain damage would be high.’ Their somber advice to my husband was ‘get her affairs in order.’

“By now, small concentrations of mold, perfume, cologne, chlorine, and the blue cleaner used in restaurants caused seizures or loss of motor skills, and would result in paralysis that would last up to two days; a cycle that repeated itself hundreds of times over the past 10 years.

“Seventy-five different types of therapies later, I was still reacting!

“When I looked at Annie Hopper’s website, the claims sounded too good to be true; but at that point in my healing journey I really didn’t have too much to lose.

“When the limbic system has maladapted, whether you are the victim of multiple chemical sensitivity, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, matters not. My limbic system had truly become my autopilot, running faulty programming and holding me hostage—unbeknownst to me.

“Thankfully that all stopped when I implemented the neuroplasticity tools that I learned in the dynamic neural retraining system.

“Neuroplasticity truly is a new paradigm and I can barely believe that I have not only recovered, but am now engaging in life fully, with energy and in good health.

“A couple of months ago I even attended my daughter’s graduation ceremony, which I miraculously did with ease. Our other two daughters, who live away from home as well, were also in attendance.

“After sharing a beautiful lunch the following day we said our goodbyes to our three lovely daughters.

“And as they drove away I started to cry. I cried because our life as we knew it has forever changed. Our daughters are grown up and moved away. But what is most dramatic and memorable, however, is that I am no longer a prisoner of multiple chemical sensitivity, fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue.”

Of course, I am more than thrilled for Gloria and her family, and most of all excited that her story will give others hope as well.

One person can truly touch the lives of many.
