About you

So you blew a fuse. It might look like depression,
Or feel like anxiety, Or show up as chronic fatigue.
It’s nothing to be ashamed of - many of us these days have blown our fuses too.

The story of re-origin

At age 25, Ben Ahrens, a semi-professional surfer and fitness trainer, became bedridden for over 3 years with Chronic Neurological Lyme Disease. Despite his best efforts and conventional medical treatment, Ben found himself truly stuck – unable to improve. Then he came across neuroplasticity.

Brain Scan on about Page

In the years that followed, Ben sought out and consulted (and now works with) top neuroscientists and cutting edge doctors from all over the world. His eventual success with recovering his own health (Ben has remained 100% healed for over 10 years now) led him to form The Brain Trust™ which now serves as the cornerstone of re-origin. Together, they’ve developed a program and process capable of replicating these results at scale, for a wide range of debilitating conditions.

Ben's Fascination
Ben takes his fascination for human health and healing to New York City where he works as a Corrective Exercise Specialist, helping post-habilitation patients recover from neurological injuries and return to normal life. In 2009, Ben undergoes his own healing journey in an up and down struggle with chronic Lyme disease.

2010- 2014

Power Of Neuroplasticity
Through the power for neuroplasticity, Ben healed himself from Lyme, CFS, and Hypersensitivity disorder. He joins forces with Innovative Medicine, earning advanced certifications in biological medicine & becoming an AADP Board Certified Holistic Health Practitioner in the state of New York. Together, they work on untangling some of the world’s most complex chronic conditions.

Spreading Hope & Knowledge
Having made a full recovery, Ben started helping others do the same. He shares what he’s learned at such venues as: Quantified Self, Habit Design, TED X, Esalen Institute, The Biohacking Conference, and the US Army (Fort Bragg, NC). Collaborating with and learning from the best in their fields, a synergy arises with the aim of helping others reclaim their health by rewiring their brain.

2019 - Now

The re-origin brain trust is formed
The re-origin Brain Trust™ is formed and Dr. Ken, Dr. Kelly, and the re-origin team distill their combined decades of research and experience into a science-based neuroplasticity program that now helps hundreds of re-origin’s members reclaim their health and lives. With this neuroplasticity training, Ben’s 100% healing is now possible for others experiencing chronic illness.

An estimated 133 million American adults suffer from at least one chronic condition

Take into account chronic pain, anxiety, and depression, and this number increases to over 175 million - more than half the population. While many conditions such as heart disease and diabetes have received full mainstream attention, there is a growing subset of inflammatory-based conditions and environmental sensitivities known as “central sensitization syndromes” that, up until recently, had no known cause, and no effective treatment. And these conditions, while not acutely life-threatening, can wreak havoc on a person’s quality of life. Fortunately, modern applied neuroscience has caught up to what individuals and brain researchers have been telling us for decades. And we believe, there’s a way to resolve these complex conditions...

"I feel way better after going through the re-origin neuroplasticity program"

- Andrena Jhay

Self-directed neuroplasticity

At its core, self-directed neuroplasticity (SDNP) is about intentionally using the brain's natural ability to rewire itself in response to new experiences and learning.

point icons

This process is grounded in cutting-edge neuroscience research, which shows that the brain is constantly adapting and changing throughout our lives.

By taking a proactive approach to brain retraining, we can tap into this remarkable ability to change conditioned inflammatory and immunological processes, and restore homeostasis to the system.

This powerful concept is transforming the way we think about the brain and our ability to heal from chronic conditions.

Join the program

Our mission is to empower people globally to heal themselves and their brains from chronic conditions by providing effective science-based, self-directed neuroplasticity programs and technologies.
