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!
I was hit head-on 2010. It ended my career at age 47. I suffered from neck and back injuries that have only gotten worse. Along with the loss of my job and fighting in court for a settlement that wasn’t enough to cover my income through retirement age let alone cover any of my medical bills… I went into depression, I suffer from social anxiety now and insomnia has become one of my latest symptoms I’ve had surgeries, nerve blocks I’ve been on every kind of neuropathy medication and opioids, the list goes on and on this wonderful device is allowing me to go back to only using holistic supplements for the generalized aches and pains of fibromyalgia. My migraine medication by law, I can only get nine pills per month and I have six migraines a month, some lasting for days. this truly has been an answer to my prayers !! The changes maybe so subtle that you don’t even realize it… After using it for a month I would suggest going a few days without and you will be able to feel the difference!
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
