Neuroplasticity: The
scientific backbone

Neuroplasticity is the foundation of our brain retraining program at re-origin. This concept refers to the brain's ability to change and adapt in response to new experiences and stimuli, allowing us to gradually shift the inflammatory processes that underpin a wide range of chronic conditions.

“I started using some of the techniques and it works beautifully. I no longer take Tylenol for pain. I got rid of it your way and i love it. Its the first time since my surgery 2 1/2 months ago that i am pain free!!! YES! - Thank you re-origin! - Mira B., San Fransisco

How is this different from Meditation or CBT?

While meditation has been shown to improve brainwave coherence while in the state of meditation, re-origin uses scientifically backed techniques that are targeted and specific to repairing the limbic system, resetting the stress response, and producing an enduring mental, emotional, and physiological state that’s been shown to optimize healing & recovery.

Meditation may help to calm the stress response (particularly while meditating), but re-origin’s interest and edge is preventing the arousal of the stress response in the first place. This requires a physical rewiring to take place by which the causative (negative) neural pathways must be broken and then systematically re-established through repetitive neural conditioning.

re-origin accomplishes this by offering a scientifically sound program that’s easy to implement and takes just minutes a day.

Our Approach

By utilizing the latest neuroscience research and therapeutic techniques, we designed a personalized program that empowers you to harness the power of neuroplasticity and create a more favorable environment for your health and happiness to thrive. Our science-based approach has been demonstrated to be effective in addressing previously hard-to-treat chronic conditions and symptoms, including chronic fatigue, brain fog, chronic pain, anxiety, and depression.

State Of The Art Research

There is now research (1) to support the notion that many of the aforementioned ailments occur as the result of a ‘conditioning effect’ that takes place when the limbic system becomes traumatized (by an injury, infection, or stressful life event) while the allostatic stress load on the nervous system is already high (2). This combination overwhelms the brain, leading to an overactive stress response and unproductive, conditioned patterns in the brain. When in this impaired state, the limbic system inappropriately stimulates the immune system (3) and nervous system as if an ongoing threat was present, even though the original aggressor has long passed.

The continuous stimulation of the immune system and nervous system lead to perpetual symptomsThis etiology is analogous to the development of chronic pain syndromes, where pain sensation centers in the brain persist even after the original injury causing the pain has resolved. The good news is that these symptoms are temporary, and mounting evidence suggests that many, if not all of these symptoms, can be attenuated thanks to neuroplasticity—the brain’s ability to change and develop new neural pathways. Using specific neurocognitive exercises, it is possible to get your brain and body out of “emergency mode” and back to a place of safety and balance where well-being can naturally resume ().
