Neurological Stress Reduction Therapy (NSRT) not only helped me to feel better, it literally changed my life. My symptoms started when I was about 14 years old (I am now 25). Initially, I had frequent abdominal cramping and diarrhea with no known cause. I then started experiencing severe heart burn and acid reflux. After having more tests and specialist appointments than I can remember, I was eventually told I had a sensitivity to milk protein, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). By eliminating dairy from my diet, my symptoms improved slightly, but I continued to have heart burn and the sudden onset of abdominal cramping and diarrhea. Over the years, I continued to see specialists, both conventional and alternative, when symptom flare ups would cause drastic weight loss, as much as 30lbs in less than 2 months. Though various treatments did provide periods of relief and an overall reduction in the severity of my symptoms, the reflux and diarrhea continued to flare up every few weeks and I was still not able to reintroduce dairy into my diet.
I had essentially given up on ever being “cured” when Dr.Johnson gave me information on NSRT. I did as much research as I could, but remained skeptical. I was also very reluctant because of the cost. My husband eventually convinced me that if there was a chance this would improve my health and quality of life, it was worth the investment.
Since having NSRT, I have been eating dairy products almost every day with no repercussions!! (We can hardly keep cheese in the fridge or ice cream in the freezer!) I have had no reflux or diarrhea, since completing my treatments, which has allowed me to finally have a normal social life, free of worrying about the accessibility of washrooms or whether I will remain symptom free for the entire time. Though NSRT certainly is an investment, it is well worth it!! If you find yourself frequently saying “I’m so sick of feeling sick” (I think this eventually became my catch phrase!), then NSRT might be the answer you’re looking for. It certainly was for me!
