I have the FWS and I use it for major depressive disorder. I’ve had it for almost 2 years. I also take medications for depression. I believe my depression started when my mother died and I was 21 years old. I also lost a brother age 19 and a brother age 41. Then my husband died unexpectedly and suddenly at age 54. All too young to be dying. It takes a toll on your mind and body. When I got the FWSI used it for 20 minutes twice a day as indicated. It took about 2 weeks before I noticed a significant difference. I felt happy and more entergetic. If you aren’t sure if it is working for you after 2-3 weeks you can stop using it and see how you feel without it. That will give you an indication if it is working for you. If it doesn’t help you you can return it at 30 days and get your money back. All the dealings I have had with the company have been positive and helpful. Good luck and I hope it makes a difference in your life. You need to get a prescription from your doctor for it. Your insurance may reimburse you or you can file it on your income long form for medical.
I have schizoaffective disorder; I suffer from depression and auditory hallucinations. I obtained the Fisher Wallace Stimulator primarily as a way to treat my depression. I have found it helpful not only for my depression, but also for my auditory hallucinations. I have been applying the stimulator 2-3 times daily for the past 2 weeks and have experienced an improvement in my affect and a reduction in the frequency and intensity of my auditory hallucinations.Thus, I now have three useful approaches for my auditory hallucinations: Anti-psychotic medications, cognitive-behavioral psychotherapy, and the Fisher-Wallace Stimulator. I find this very encouraging to have an extra tool for the management of my illness.Thank you
I admit that I looked at this device for over a year before I decided to commit to a purchase. For me it wasn’t in my budget but I decided I couldn’t stand this depression for one more year of my life. Depression has consumed me since the age of 14. Winters are the hardest for me. I have been using this device faithfully -2xs a day for about 6 weeks. I cannot believe how much better I’m feeling. People that know me well have commented on it as well. I’m now down to using it once a day and will most likely try less and see how I do. It may not work for everyone but it sure is working for me! I’m super happy I made the decision to try this. I’m so glad I decided that I was worth it. I deserve freedom from depressionand fisher Wallace has given me just that! Thank you!!❤ Ps- also I suffer with bad anxiety and driving was always an issue. I’ve been driving 3 hours back and forth to visit my daughter and I’m not stressed. Yay
I want to go on record to say how much the Fisher Wallace Stimulater has helped me with my mild-to-moderate depression. It has made me feel more positive and more mentally alert. The bonus of using it daily is it also has helped me sleep better. I have fewer wake-ups etc. as well. I would recommend this device to anyone that has not yet heard of this type of therapy.
I ordered this with skepticism because i am one of those people where nothing works for me. I have suffered with dysthymia most of my life with a couple of major depressive episodes along with a life full of pit in your stomach anxiety on a daily basis. I tried several meds but none worked. My children have suffered with depression as well and i first used the FWS when my child was suffering with suicidal thoughts and i was strugglumg to cope with severe anxiety. I used it faithfully for 4 to 5 weeks twice a day, eventually on the highest setting and determined that it did not work for me. However i noticed in the weeks following that in actuality i was coping better. Suddenly i could not remember the last time i had the pit in the stomach anxiety nor the last time i would describe myself as depressed. A year later i would say i am 95 percent cured of my anxiety and depression. I wouldnt go as far as saying i am super happy or anything but i am functioning well and would no longer label myself as depressed. I have not felt the need to use the device again. I would say for me it was a gradual realization and not something immediate for me but it definitely worked.
My daughter has used your device for a while and I am seeing a major difference She has tried few medication, with major side effects. She got to the point that she refused to go on meds. She was diagnosed with bipolar just this year. She is able to focus better. The results are Great. Thank you Fisher Wallace!
I bought the stimulator for my daughter who has suffered from anxiety and depression for years. She uses it regularly and for the first time we are seeing smiles on her face. She seems more upbeat and able to tackle life. Thank you.
Hi, my son started experiencing symptoms of anxiety and insomnia last year. Our research for natural and effective solutions led us to the Fisher Wallace Stimulator. He has been using the device regularly and we have noticed a steady improvement in these symptoms. He now goes sleep easily and sleeps through the night. It's not the only healing modality we are leveraging toward our son's healing, but we do consider the Fisher Wallace Stimulator to be a valuable and effective tool.Moreover, we consider our purchase of the Fisher Wallace Stimulator to be a great long-term investment for our entire family as research indicates that it is effective in treating multiple conditions including chronic pain so we feel that we have a healing tool in our arsenal that can benefit our family for many years to come.
I was not sure if this treatment would work for me as I have multiple conditions. I received it and began using it and within 2 weeks, I began noticing that I was not only being lifted out of my depression, but I was sleeping better, my headaches were better, and I could concentrate better! As I continue to use it, my symptoms ate getting better and better. I am so thankful that I found this device! It is the one thing that has lifted my depression better than any antidepressant I have ever tried! Thank you for making this device available to me.
I have only had this device a short while, but can tell that it is working. I have not yet reached the 'milestone' yet of using it twice a day for 20 minutes for a few weeks, but will be 'there' soon! The key is that it is providing some relief at this time.
