My depression began in my teens. I am now 67 and still managing dealing with this illness. Recently, the Fisher Wallace stimulator helped me come out of a very long depressive period. The usual methods: anti-depressants, talk therapy, daily exercise and friends were not working. I had some major life changes I knew had aggravated my depression but I usually can get myself around and out of a depressive episode. I started using the stimulator twice daily as recommended and within two weeks I started feeling better. I continued for another two weeks. I was a different person! I still use it from time to time, especially during this Covid isolation period. It has been a lifesaver.
I bought the stimulator to see if I could get off the 30 milligrams of Paxil. I took Paxil to help me deal with the very loud chronic tinnitus that started up 3 years ago. I was also on blood pressure medication. Both meds were draining my energy. I'm 67 years old and felt like I was 20 years older. When I mowed the lawn, my pulse rate would go up to 120 bmp. My heart felt like it was going to beat out of my chest. After using the stimulator for 4 days, I quit both meds. I feel great now and have tons of energy. I feel like a young man again. Another bonus is that I have only heard the tinnitus in my head 3 days since using the stimulator. Been using it for about 4 weeks. My blood pressure was 121/68 without taking the 40 milligrams of Benazapril. I'd been taking it for 20 years. I told my doctor that if it's a placebo effect, I'm good with that. But. It does work. At least it has worked for me.
That product is a miracle
I have found this device very helpful. Initially I used it every night to assist with sleep. Now I only use it every so often, I would say every 3-4 months for a few nights. It does help me sleep better. Being a long term insomniac, I am willing to do whatever I can to sleep better. I used to use ambien every night. Now I do not need to use it at all. I would highly recommend this device
Upon my purchase and immediate usage of my device, approx 3 yrs ago; my depression lifted within an hour of my session. I've had depression since a teen, and now I have immediate relief. It's a God send to be able to sit in the comfort of my own home and know that I'm changing my life for the positive!
I have been using the Fisher Wallace device for months & have noticed an improvement- I try to use twice a day but more often than not its once a day. I definitely notice when I don’t use it. I sleep better for sure & just feel better emotionally. I finally talked my adult son into trying it for his anxiety & sleep issues & he noticed improvement right away w/sleep & anxiety.
I have been using this device for over a year. The main reason I purchased it was for depression. It has helped a lot. It has also helped with anxiety in situations where I previously felt anxious.
A life saver esp since I struggle with seasonal affective disorder. Also helpful when under more stress than every day living has to offer.
I have suffered from severe chronic anxiety since I was a small child. It was crippling. In addition there was a strong genetic component from my fathers side of the family and all my siblings suffered as well. To a lesser extent I have had occasional bouts of depression. My physician mentioned the a Fisher Wallace stimulator as I have tried so many meds with limited success. How glad I am that she did introduce me to this device. At the time she mentioned it I had been suffering from two months of relentless insomnia. I am here to tell you that this device has been nothing short of a miracle. ALL symptoms including the insomnia have been eliminated! The big test was when I had to give a speech before a large crowd which normally would devastate me with anxiety. I did have a small amount of nervousness but I was able to overcome it and deliver the speech with confidence and I actually enjoyed it once I began! Truly a miracle! Gone is the everpresent debilitating anxiety that was preventing me from enjoying life. And if you suffer from insomnia or depression why take drugs when this device can change your life? It’s certainly worth a try considering there is a 30 day trial. For me it has been a lifesaver!
Although I am bipolar and take psychiatric meds, I have not experienced depression in the past two years. About 18 months ago, I did suffer a mild to moderate stroke that was a setback but did not experience depression.The stimulator that I started using about three months ago at a level 2 setting has elevated my mood and mental acuity to a level that I could never imagined. I simply feel wonderful.
