Transcranial magnetic stimulation

Last edited Fri Jul 31, 2020, 07:37 PM - Edit history (1)

Has anyone tried this? Is anyone dealing with treatment resistant depression? Anyone know of resources to help fund this treatment?

Update I think we figured out the insurance for this for my son. Now we wait and see what happens.

1. My brother, who has been suffering with debilitating depression for decades,

has had this treatment and it worked wonders for him. He is on his wife's insurance so I am not sure about other options. Medicaid maybe?

2. I'm sorry I haven't, but

Have you tried neurotherapy?

I worked as a neurotherapist years ago and, with the clients we had, if they weren't smiling in 1-2 minutes, either there wasn't enough goop on the electrode or I missed the spot.

Bcia.org likely has some good information & research.

Also, some chiros & therapists offer Alpha Stim treatments &/or rentals. If you are a veteran, the VA will give you one of these units to help with anxiety, depression, insomnia, PTSD or physical pain. (The more expensive unit has a TENS Unit as well as the ear clips for brain work.

Also, Yale is offering their very popular Science of Wellbeing course free here:

I hope this is helpful.
