I ordered the Fisher Wallace Device during the Fourth of July sale. I have been looking into other medical options for my anxiety which also causes me sleep problems and depression. I had gall bladder surgery five years ago and I have not been the same person. Even though I needed to have the gall bladder removed ( it was ready to burst) I still had issues afterward. Recovery didn't go well, I still had pain and I didn't feel like anyone in the medical field was listening to me. I felt like am experiment. About a month after the surgery I started shaking like a leaf, and I felt terrified, I hurt and I didn't want to be left alone. All this was so unlike me. After three days I knew this was more than I could handle and sought the assistance of a psychiatrist and psychologist. It was the bravest thing I ever did. Not only did I have anxiety and depression but PTSD from everything that had happened to me. My doctors worked with me to set up a plan for recovery. I understood that it would be best not to become dependent on the anti-anxiety medication and only take it when needed. Some days I waited too long to take the medication and then I would need more medication. Other times I would try to ignore my symptoms, but I was frozen to the couch, I just couldn't move. We ended up changing medications to find the right mix, but it was a very slow process and I had gotten to the point where I was ready to wave the white flag and just surrender to being on medication for the rest of my life.While doing research how to cope with anxiety which has been the biggest cause of depression I stumbled on the Fisher Wallace Device. I had spoken to my doctor asking her about the product. I just don't want to spend my life on pills. I printed up the information and gave it to my doctor. She told me this treatment was more than likely to be used in doctors offices, not for home use but would check it out, At my last visit she told me that she was planning on offering this type of treatment this Fall for treatment in her office. I was getting somewhere! Then I saw the Fisher Wallace Home Devise and it was for sale with discount on July 4th. I ordered it! After all I have nothing to lose. and everything to gain!As soon as my devise came I used it. I have not had to take any medication for sleep in two days! I am beginning to experience a small amount of improvement with the anxiety and I feel like I can cope and relax a little easier. I know it is early yet but I can actually feel I have a more positive outlook. I can hardly wait to see how I feel in another week! I have an appointment with my doctor next month and I will be bringing my Fisher Wallace Devise to the appointment. I call it my Zapper. I want to share this with my doctor. What surprises me the most is the Fisher Wallace Devise for home use has been around for 20 years, and how many doctors and their patients don't know anything about it.
After years of taking medications that weren't working for depression, anxiety and insomnia, I purchased the FWS last month. I started at level 1 for 10 days, moved to level 2 for 10 days and am just starting level three. The changes I'm feeling are subtle but I am most definitely feeling better. I'm very thankful for the FWS because I felt that nothing was going to help me. I'm very much looking forward to seeing what the next weeks and months will bring. I want my old self back and I think that the Fisher Wallace Stimulator can do that for me. Please give it a try, it really does work!
I have experienced severe depression since I was 6 years old. I constantly fought suicidal thoughts throuout my life. As I got older, anxiety became prevelant as well. I have been on medication which has not helped much. I have been using the Fisher Wallace device on the setting of 2 for two weeks and I am amazed at my improvement. I no longer suffer from anxiety, and no longer am going to “the dark place”. I finally can cope better with life and I am forever grateful for this device.
I had a bone marrow biopsy in 2015 and apparently they damaged a nerve because it was extremely painful during the biopsy and the pain continued afterwards. This pain continued for over a year. My doctor said it was nerve damage, that it’s a hit or miss proposition and all they could do was prescribe pain meds which I declined. I purchased the Fisher Wallace stimulator and used it as prescribed, red on back of neck, black directly over the location of the biopsy. The pain was gone within a week and has not returned. Thank you Fisher Wallace!
I have suffered from depression for the last 15 years and have tried nearly every medication without success. I read about the Fisher Wallace stimulator and ordered it with no expectations of success but thinking I had nothing to lose. To my amazement, after trying the device for two weeks, I noticed that I was starting to experience the ability to feel pleasure again! It was like a fog was receding. I was in disbelief at first, but i have to say that the device clearly is working for me!
I’ve previously reviewed the FWS after finding it very effective in treating my own major depression, but I recently —finally!— talked my 21 year old son into using it.My son showed some signs of having a bit of anxiety from a very young age, and a traumatic brain injury at 15 made this considerably worse. For the past 5 years he has dealt with crippling social anxiety, OCD, and severe depression. He has been on medication and he has been hospitalized, but overall he remains too hobbled by these issues to get his feet firmly under him enough. He is in the vague barely-functioning grey area, and it is heartbreaking and frustrating to watch.Several months ago I convinced him to just TRY the Stimulator, and when his mood was markedly improved in two days I couldnt imagine that the Stimulator had worked that well, and that quickly.Fast forward to him coming home from college for summer break: he has major anxiety, no impulse control, OCD through the roof, and very worrisome depression. Taking his rx and seeing a therapist because I insisted, but unwilling or unable to do anything else to help himself. I begged him to just try the Stimulator for a couple weeks, and he agreed to do so.Again, 2-3 days and he was a completely different person. I had to practically wrestle him to the ground to get him to use it for the first few days, but by the fifth day he was using it without any intervention from me, and reluctantly agreed that it was making a major difference in his state of mind (sadly, the FWS cannot make him less sooo 21).We will be buying him his own, because it seems like the FWS has given him his life back.
I learned about the device via a news report. Did research & decided to try it. Eventhough I took my medication as prescribed, my depression would come and go and when I experenced it, It was debilitating. I wasnt able to sleep and would experience terrible anxiety.Ive been using the FW cranial stimulator for a month and what a difference. My depression is gone, no anxiety and sleeping through the night. I feel like myself again. The device has changed my life; so grateful. I continue to take my medication and my dr is amazed at the the change.Thank you for making his wonderful aid available & affordable.
I had awful problems with insomnia for years and when I started using the cranial stimulator, I began seeing improvement within the week - I have been using it now for over a year and am greatly pleased.
I bought this product a few years ago for someone else but ended up using it myself for sleep issues. I was able to fall asleep easily but could not sleep through the night. I was often awake several times throughout the night or wide awake at 3:00 a.m. unable to go back to sleep. I began using the Fisher Wallace device consistently for 20 minutes a night before bed and now I often sleep through the whole night. If I do wake up it is only for a few minutes and I usually am able to go back to sleep quickly. I recently recommended it to a friend for mental health and sleep and her neurologist agreed that she should give it a try. Great product! Great results and no side effects!
I'm going to try to make a very long story short. Suffered a bad stroke at work and was fired from my job while still undergoing brain surgery in the ICU. My 35+ year as a paralegal ended. Deep depression, memory loss, inability to focus, no concentration, PBA, financial destruction, etc., etc. I wanted to drive off a cliff. This device is nothing short of miraculous. Now all I want to do is stand on the cliff and shout out to the world what this FW cranial stimulator has done for me. I am no longer merely existing, I am living!!!!!!! Please, for those who are sad and hopeless for whatever reason, get a FW device!
