The Fisher Wallace device is something that I should have tried years ago. It really has helped my sleep and anxiety. I started receiving benefits after about a month. Definitely keep up usage and stick with it as it will help your symptoms. I am blessed that I never really had depression issues but have noticed the bouts of anxiety have improved tremendously in that they are much shorter now and this seemed to help my SSRI actually do it’s job .
I have suffered from depression and GAD, all of my life as well as Premenstrual dysphoria and now perimenapausal dysphoria. Life for me has been challenging as I am unable to take any mind altering the medication and function on my job. It isn’t that the medication didn’help, it did but in a short time it made me totally overly drowsy and non-functional or zombified and unable to engage in life. I’m overly sensitive to chemicals , some of the SSRI’s made me numb and fat then the anxiety and depression started all over again. The new SNRI’s incapacitated me and Wellbutrin overwhelmed my nervous system rendering my brain hyper excitable.I took pills to get me up in the morning and bring me down to sleep at night. I came across the fisher Wallace Stimulator and dismissed it as a farce a few years back. After many years of misery, I came back and read the reviews on the stimulator and did some research , and decided to give it a try. I have been using the device for a week twice daily on level two and I can honestly say that I have experienced a difference in my thought pattern and behavior. At first I thought it was too good to be true and that it was a Hawthorne effect. I felt better and better each time I used it and I can tell you that the device really works! I don’t want to stop using it! I have been calmer, able to think clearly and recover from any negative thought patterns or strong emotional fluctuations immediately! I’m not anxious and am able to focus and make rational decisions rather indecisive decisions resulting from a brain that hijacked by over whelming fluctuating hormones. I’m not excessively worried about anything, My moods are much better. I am sure that there is more to come and I can’t wait to have that experience!If you are considering using this device, and you have tried everything else.Do yourself a favor invest in the quality of your life and try something new that works!
I spent several months researching the Fisher Wallace Stimulator before finally purchasing the product. I am in the healthcare field and suffer from insomnia and depression. I tried medication but I felt like a "zombie" so I successfully weaned myself off of all drugs. I have been using the Fisher Wallace Stimulator for 4 days and I am trully amazed. I feel like a new person. I can actually sleep! What a joy! My mood and energy levels have increased significantly. I highly recommend this product! Thank you so much.
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.
After the loss of my husband i had such crushing grief coupled with extreme anxiety. Traditional doctors offered pills and kept wanting to increase the dose, which offered no relief. My primary Dr. knew an 82 year old neurologist also suffering from grief and who was considering taking his own life. He tried the FWS and told my doctor of his great relief. So i tried it and got relief too. My anxiety left, grief well you learn to live with it but it is no longer crushing.
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.
