I'm extremely skeptical. I do not understand how any form of "brain training" could ever help with the severe physical symptoms I've been dealing with for so many years.
How am I supposed to believe neural retraining could actually help, and how can I possibly believe that what you are saying about your "dramatic 5-day recovery" is actually true?
First of all, I understand and respect your skepticism because I felt exactly the same way when I first began looking into neural retraining. Quite honestly, I completely dismissed neural retraining when I initially learned about it because I thought it was nothing more than superficial "happy talk" and feeble "affirmations" that did not address the harsh physical reality of the severe health challenges I was facing on a daily basis, and that had been plaguing me for well over a decade.
In fact, it was only after I had become completely housebound, and my health care practitioners told me there was nothing more they could do for me, that I finally decided to give neural retraining a try, simply as a last ditch effort to find some small measure of symptomatic relief.
What I realize now is that when I first heard about neural retraining, there were several important considerations that contributed to my deep-seated skepticism and resistance:
Once I finally began investigating neuroplasticity in earnest, and I eventually discovered the astonishing ability of the brain to rewire and "rehabilitate" itself, then I knew neural retraining had astonishing potential.
To learn more, see the documentary The Brain That Changes Itself which provides several fascinating, and in some cases breathtaking, examples of how the brain can change, adapt and rewire itself.
When it comes to understanding the relationship between neural retraining and the physical nature of our symptoms, the bottom line is this:
How I recovered so quickly is another related and vitally important question -- and, quite frankly, immediately after I recovered, I could not provide an adequate answer this question.
In fact, this question is the very reason I've spent the last several years researching the science of neuroplasticity and exploring a variety of self-directed neural retraining techniques. My goal is to better understand what actually occurred -- and why and how.
Specifically, I wanted to better understand how I was able to recover so quickly in order to eventually be able to help others achieve their own neural retraining goals.
Now, as a result of my continuing research and my work with my coaching clients, I have several working theories about the factors that may contribute to rapid recovery. This is a subject of ongoing research, and my working theories are addressed in much greater depth within my online training and coaching programs.
