My Recovery Story

Dan Ross “Before and After”

 

My name is Daniel Ross. This website is my amazing story of recovery from numerous incomprehensible chronic and acute illnesses. They produced many bizarre symptoms.

This website is dedicated to inspiring hope for others. People need to know that they can be cured even when everything else they tried didn’t work.  It is my goal to introduce others to a very effective treatment sooner rather than later so that you don’t have to go through the suffering that I did or spend your life savings over several years to find something that works.

My illnesses/disorders were diagnosed and confirmed by PhD medical physicians. They are as follows:

– Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS)
– Electric Hypersensitivity Syndrome (EHS)
– Food & Environmental Sensitivities and Allergies
– Skin Rash/Itching Disorder
– Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
– Depression
– Leaky Gut Syndrome
– Adrenal Fatigue
– Low Testosterone/ DHEA/Thyroid Hormones
– Brain Damage
– Heavy Metal Toxicity
– Slow Intestinal Motility
– Severe Constipation
– Insomnia
– Anxiety
– Rheumatoid Arthritis

From the beginning, I ventured on a quest for effective treatments for Environmental Illnesses, which turned out to be a nightmare. It remained that way until I received my Godsend – when I began Annie Hopper’s Dynamic Neural Retraining System (DNRS), a neuroplasticity-based therapy that restores limbic system function in the brain. Within 5 months or so, I recovered from all of the conditions listed above with the use of this brain rehabilitation program. Today I am totally healed.

The Beginning

I used to live life to the fullest before I became ill

I used to live life to the fullest. I am a Navy veteran. I traveled the world. I was a sports fanatic. I loved to go out on my boat, or go river rafting, fishing, off road motorcycling, basketball, tennis, golf, bowling and snow skiing.

But when I became sick, life as I knew it came to a crashing halt and my life was reduced to a lonely, hopeless, shell of a life. I lost touch with most of my friends. My family rarely called or visited. They did not understand my illnesses and thought I needed psychiatric help. I was near my wits end and nearly took my life on several occasions.

My health started to plummet in 2005 after a series of stressful and devastating events. I had a nasty divorce, chronic back pain, a major neck injury after jumping into a pool head-first, and subsequent financial problems due to business troubles. I was also exposed to mold in two homes within two years.

Also during this time, I developed functional alcoholism and an addiction to pain medication while beginning and ending another relationship. These physical and emotional stressors compounded, manifesting in bizarre pains all over my body in addition to sensory maladaptation.

Multiple Chemical Sensitivities

I used to work on the flight deck in the navy

The first limbic system condition to develop was Multiple Chemical Sensitivities (MCS) as a result of chemical and mold exposure. I was subject to toxic chemicals during my time in the Navy aboard the USS Constellation. Another contributing factor was me taking high dosages of antibiotics for my Rheumatoid arthritis. The antibiotics stripped the good bacteria from my gut.

I suffered with MCS for six years. I was reactive to all chemicals such as detergents and perfumes. At its worst, my reactions were so severe I couldn’t be in contact with other people. Doing so caused flu-like symptoms, headaches, nausea, and stomach pain. I lived completely isolated from human contact except on rare occasions. I lost contact from most of my friends and family. I moved many times, homeless from time to time, as I searched for a home that would not make me sick. My mother took care of me for 3 years and she kept chemically clean.

Food Sensitivities

I used to weigh 200 lbs. I had wilted away to 119 lbs during my illness

I started to develop food allergies that led to leaky gut and other digestive issues. I became sensitive to most foods, spices, and herbs. My weight plummeted leaving me very sick and extremely weak. I survived by going on a food rotation diet in order to tolerate foods and give my body nutrients. But I still went from being a 200 pound man to a skin-and-bones weight of 119 lbs. I looked like a concentration camp survivor.

 

Dan rash

16 dermatologists could not help me with my severe skin rash condition

 

Skin Rash

I also developed a severe skin rash and itching disorder. A panel of 16 dermatologists at UCLA evaluated my biopsy. All they could tell me was that I was having a reaction to some things (like medications or foods), but they did not know what. They basically sent me away to figure it out myself. I looked like a leper. The pain was so bad I was brought to tears much of the time. With this rash and all my other health issues I compared my suffering to that of a prisoner of war.

Electrical Hypersensitivity

I would describe it as a syndrome. I developed this a few years after MCS. I could not be close to or touch any electrical device. All or most of the electricity in my living spaces needed to be off or I would start to react as if I was shocked by electricity and this state would last for a few hours, affecting my neurological system. For several years I was very limited – or unable – to watch TV or use a computer.

My Search for Healing

From the beginning I ventured on a quest to regain my health, subjecting myself to various treatments for these conditions. I had tried everything imaginable. Naturopath doctors, acupuncturists, chiropractors. The best Environmental doctors in the country such as Dr Rae, Dr Bernhoff, and Dr Green.

I tried stem cell therapy, provocation-neutralization shots, elimination and rotation medical diets, countless medications, supplements, and other various health care products. For stem cell therapy I made many trips back and forth to Mexico. I also spent 3 weeks in a mold ridden shabby motel to save trips back & forth. For my severe constipation I had to do in home colonics to encourage bowl movements, otherwise a stomach blockage would probably occur.

On my way to the Environmental Health Center in Dallas in my stripped-down, chemical-free van

I traveled to Dallas Texas in a van I purchased, stripped and cleaned to be chemically clean. I went there to receive treatment for my Environmental Illnesses from Dr Rae. I spent about 6 months living in special condos, built with many toxic free materials, for chemically sensitive people in mind. Because of my adverse reactions to Allergy shots – and with my Electrical Hypersensitivity worsening – I came back to Ca. to immediately start cold turkey withdrawals from oxycontin. As you can imagine this was a lethal situation for me.

Despite spending over $450,000 on my quest for treatment, my overall condition continued to decline rather than get any better.

 

My Plea for Help

It was 2012, and I was very sick, broke, and living with my mother. My mother was my caretaker and guardian angel. She sacrificed very much in order to help me, even though she was 77 at the time and had her own health issues. Her care for me put a lot of stress on her own health. God bless her – she was my rock.

By September 2012, I ran out of ideas for managing my illness. My weight dropped to 119 pounds. I was so weak I could not walk a 1/2 a block. Talking and thinking was a chore.

In 2012, I made a Plea for Help video on YouTube.

I had nowhere to turn, and my sister and my mom helped me post a plea for help video on YouTube. This video showed me near my worst, physically, mentally and emotionally. I was at my wits end and only my strong faith in Jesus Christ helped carry me through my darkest days. I prayed for a miracle daily.

My Recovery

Dynamic Neural Retraining System DVD Set and workbook

My recovery started in 2014 from divine intervention and Annie Hopper’s Dynamic Neural Retraining System DVD program. I had heard about Annie’s program from MCS groups that I belonged to. Several people had commented on how DNRS helped them recover from debilitating Limbic System Disorders such as Multiple Chemical Sensitivity, Electric Hypersensitivity Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue, Chronic Pain, Food Sensitivities, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Anxiety and other Limbic System conditions.

To supplement and enhance my retraining, I incorporated yoga, dance, meditation, and biking in the ways that I could at the time. I found it very supportive – and fun! And I found strength in prayer. What a welcome surprise it was for me to notice that after a few short weeks, while on a bike ride that spring, I no longer reacted to pollen! Even without addressing this issue directly, my pollen allergy resolved through the work I had been doing retraining my limbic system!

Now I am at a healthy weight and can eat anything I want!

Within two months, my Multiple Chemical Sensitivity was gone. After six years of living with this condition, all it took was just two months working with the DNRS program and my reactions and symptoms abated!

In just 5 months, I was back to eating anything I wanted and going wherever I wanted! My leaky gut condition is healed. My blood pressure is perfect – it used to be borderline dangerously low. Depression has lifted. When I experience bouts of anxiety, I use the DNRS tools that I have learned, and my anxiety is gone. That is another great thing about this program. It is a program I can use for the rest of my life to manage anxiety and stress.

 

I can now spend time with my family and friends again. I have restored my strained relationships with some of my family members and have met my three grandchildren for the first time ever in person since I was sick!

What a blessing it is to be together with family members again

Now I can pursue my interests in dog training and other passions

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I can watch TV, work on the computer, play occasional tennis, and go fishing. I am very grateful for every minute I am awake. Now, I live by the beautiful beaches of southern California with a close friend from grammar school. I soak up the warm sun while riding my bike and visiting the beach regularly. I am also currently involved with two local dog rescue organizations and pursuing my interests in dog training. I still continue to do yoga, go for daily walks, and dance to great music that makes me happy! Even though I have regained my health, I use DNRS for life. I still have Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) – an autoimmune disease. DNRS helps me manage it. Since my recovery, I have been like a sponge. I want to experience and learn all that I can!

And I want you to experience the miracle of neuroplasticity-based therapy yourself!

In Gratitude

Two Year Update

Rewind back a couple of years to Oct 2014. I have just fully recovered using the Dynamic Neural Retraining System DVD Program. My mother had just moved back to my sisters home where she resided before becoming my caretaker.

I feel like I have been reborn. All the simple things are so much fun and exciting. Going through what I did makes me appreciate everything to the fullest!! Whenever I have a problem I look back to the days when I could not watch TV or get on the computer. Sleeping in my van for months on end was no fun either.

As I was living at a So Cal beach Condo I started looking for a way to get back to work and make $ to live on. I have a great desire to give to the community. I signed up for 2 dog rescue organizations. They gave me the opportunity to get exposed to dog training. I had raised and trained dogs all my life also. This seemed to be my natural calling so I pursued it.

At the beginning it was fairly hard to get back in the work mode and deal with stress and people. There are many times I have to resort back to many of the DNRS principals, in the last 2 years, and do some mini programs.
For example I tore my meniscus, had 3 floods in my apartment in 8 months, (possible mold issues), fell in a ditch and gorged a hole in my leg, and re injured my neck.

The good news is I fully recovered from all those episodes with flying colors!!
So here I am a Certified Dog Trainer living a dream of great health and fellowship with my Lord and Savior. My RA symptoms have completely disappeared!!  Now I battle vertigo. Oh well this is a piece of cake compared to all the rest.

So I say to my fellow survivalists never give up and do the DNRS program with passion and FAITH!
