I stopped taking the slow road with QNRT.
If you don't know what QNRT is, click here.
Up until now, I've taken the gentle approach to QNRT. That means, I let my body decide each time what it wanted to retrain. Often with this approach, you can avoid the negative side effects that can crop up with brain retraining. These could be things like uncomfortable emotions bubbling up, headaches, fatigue, etc.
And, then, I reached a point over the summer where I didn't feel like playing it safe anymore. I have some huge health hurdles and I wanted to speed up the process by targeting these big issues. So, I decided, fuck it, let's grab QNRT by the low hangers.
My first target, the most uncomfortable health issue I've ever experienced.
I experience different types of vertigo and dizziness. Sometimes it's my blood sugar, sometimes my vagus nerve. Sometimes it's my inner ear canals (Meniere's) and other times it's hormones or my blood pressure or a food sensitivity (gluten is the worst culprit). I'm sure there are more and I'm not looking to discover them. This one lately is a weird one. I think it's from changes in the weather. My would ears turn red and burn. Then, I would feel a sourness in my stomach and my ears would start to pop. And, then the world would sway and spin around me.
I think I'm about as comfortable as one can get with vertigo. I've had it for over 10 years now but it's still the single most horrible experience, every time. You learn to breath and tell yourself "nothing lasts forever". When vertigo was first hitting me in my early 30's was the first time I truly embraced death. Can you spin if you don't have a body?
Some patterns of brain dysfunction are from trauma we've personally experienced and some of it is trans-generational. Meaning, our parents, grandparents, etc handed down this dysfunction. This form of vertigo was gifted to me by my mom's mom, I call her Poon. She's less of a grandma and more of an annoying abusive narcissistic asshole that actively works to create chaos and pain in our family for her own personal enjoyment. Much like my sister, they are cut from the same cloth.
The day following the retraining was my birthday and I spent almost the entire day trying to stave of an aggressive migraine. Unfortunately, this is how things can go when you rush QNRT. Although I had wanted to target my chemical sensitivity next, I shelved it. These fucking migraines had to stop.
As of writing this, I am 5 weeks vertigo-free. I've had the burning ears and sour belly since but no vertigo manifested.
QNRT, how I love thee.
Before I describe my next few sessions, I want to talk about how I've felt since the first 3 sessions of QNRT:
I've felt so much better!
My sessions tend to always go back to my gut issues and my limbic system being dysregulated. These two issues have wreaked havoc on my life. Since having QNRT done, my digestion has improved a ton and I'm calmer all the time. I've been in a few situations since, where I've actually caught myself waiting for my limbic system to dysregulate and it hasn't. Didn't stir at all. I continue to have ZERO anxiety at night after the first QNRT session. My digestion has been better. I'm not painfully bloated every second of every day. My skin has cleared up a great deal. This stuff is magic. It's brilliant. I'm hooked.
Wanting to learn more, I jumped on instagram looking for QNRT accounts to follow to see how others are feeling and learn more about the science behind it. And, there's almost NOTHING. Sadly, it turns out that the guy who created it sends out cease and desists like they're party flyers to anyone he thinks might be giving away his proprietary information. It's sad that he holds back his own creation from spreading into the world and helping so many people. I can't imagine the work that went into creating this process. The inventor deserves to be rewarded for that. But, I believe in abundance and that he would make even more money if he allowed information to get out there about his incredible creation. But, what can you do? What a sad world. Money and greed kill progress and healing again. Lame.
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.
