Beyond the Diagnosis with Dr. Kylie

122: Update Your Brain with Neuroplasticity

May 3, 2022

Ben Ahrens was a happy, healthy 25 year old semi professional surfer until his health took a sharp nosedive and he was diagnosed with Chronic Neurological Lyme Disease. Bedridden for three years, he had little hope for a normal healthy life again. That is, until he started learning about the brain's neuroplasticity- or, it's ability to be updated and reprogrammed out of chronic illness. 

In just 10 months of working to retrain his brain, he drastically reduced his brain fog, and was able to walk and work part time again. Now, he helps others overcome chronic illness and retrain their brain at Re Origin.

In this episode, we talk about:

  • What is brain neuroplasticity and why is it so crucial to overcoming chronic illness
  • The neurological mechanism behind why some people don't get nearly as sick as others when exposed to the same bacteria or virus
  • Re Origin's simple 5-step process to retrain your brain and overcome things like food sensitivities, chronic illness, pain, and even childhood trauma
  • And so much more!
