What is QNRT?
According to founder and creator, Dr. John Turner's website, Quantum Neuro Reset Therapy (QNRT™) "is a proprietary protocol designed to initiate a quantum shift in the nervous system by resetting the brain's response to emotional triggers for both past and present emotional trauma and stress."
In short and in my own words (and understanding), QNRT lets your body tell you the details of any stored trauma via muscle testing, then does a quick reset to clear the trauma.
My initial arrival to their office was a bit rough.
Due to my MCS, it can be extremely hard to be around people and in public spaces. There are SO MANY smells and chemicals. And, this office was no different. They had essential oil diffusers cranking and those cinnamon-scented fall holiday items. The scents were so thick in the air they instantly choked me. I apologized and choked out "It's my MCS." But, I think I full-on terrified the elderly woman waiting in the lobby. Cause you know, everything's COVID now. No one ever coughed before COVID. No reason to lol.
That was really the only hiccup and the rest of the experience was smooth sailing. I actually left the office with no MCS flare (how is that possible!?). I didn't know what to expect but the doctor was very thorough and informative. She explained the process, asked if I had any questions, and then we began.
This is my quick overview. Be sure to check out the full DNRS program here. Also, I'm not a doctor. I'm just someone living through this. None of this is medical advice.
It's all in your head.
How many jerks have told you that one? I know I've heard it too many times. Thankfully, they're only partly right. Most of us with multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS) had an exposure event that kicked off our symptoms. That could be anything from exposure to pesticides, drinking contaminated water, over exposure to a chemical, etc. Additionally, some of us have the MTHFR mutations (Me! Compound heterozygous) that make it more challenging for our bodies to physically detox. The symptoms we experience from our initial exposure events and detoxing challenges (if we have them), create troubling symptoms that trigger our fight or flight response. We add to this response by trying to avoid situations that have triggered symptoms in the past and/or worrying about future exposures, as well as stressing out when being exposed (because it's stressful!) which only feeds the negative feedback loop that traps us in fight or flight making our symptoms even worse. And, the cycle continues like that, a painful downward spiral that leads to the loss of family, friends, food, jobs, joy, and any hope of leading a normal life ever again, unless disrupted.
Yes, the chemicals are dangerous BUT your body's response to them is unnatural.
