My intrusive thoughts become so reduced that it doesnt scare me anymore. Fisher Meanwhile, am still on prescribed medication by my doctor.There is no intereferance,the result is twice of medication.God bless Fisher Wallace.
I would just like to thank everyone who is involved with this new and exciting technology. I experienced a life event that left me with major depression, severe anxiety, and chronic insomnia. I was very desperate and in dire need. I was prescribed 3-4 different medications. I was feeling uneasy by taking them for the first time in my life. I purchased books, surfed the web relentlessly for some answers. I came across an advertisement for a mechanical device that was known to help with my three conditions. I was hesitant to pay so much for something I knew nothing about. I read more about the science and the development of this product and made my decision. I would say it took a little longer with me due to my nervousness, but after a couple of months I could tell the difference. Twenty minutes on level 2 per day is all it took. I am very pleased to attest that the Fisher Wallace Stimulator became a life saver for me. It has made an indelible impact on my being. I am so ecstatic about my discovery, I just had to share my story.
This device works. I've been on various meds over the years and the device has improved my well being significantly over the best drug results I've had, and without the biochemical disruption caused by drugs that means side effects. Even with only half the recommended frequency of use, it has returned my mental energy and desire to actively pursue my goals and hobbies. It's really a shame that the pharma industry works against this kind of treatment to protect their own financial interests.The only critical thing I'll say (hoping FW sees this) is that there could be an easier way to wear the thing than the headband with the pads just placed between it and head with wires loose; a one-piece headset or something that eliminates the loose pads and wires would be ideal. It's well worth the minor hassle it is to put it on though, I won't even dock it a star for that, still 5. If you are considering it, don't hesitate especially with the 30 day return policy you can't go wrong. Well worth every penny.
After battling depression for years, I came across this device. The first thing I did was read the reviews. They were so positive, that it didn't seem like it was possible. But I had nothing to lose, so I bought the device and within a few days, I stopped having suicidal thoughts. It was like a switch went off and they were gone. I just felt better. And those morning thoughts are no longer part of my morning. The part that I don't get is that when tell people about this change they either don't believe me or attribute it a placebo effect. It's maddening, but because we live in a world where amazing claims are looked upon with skepticism, I guess that's how it is. What I would recommend is that if you're suffering from depression, give it a try and see if it works. I did and it changed my life.
I have been treated for depression and anxiety for 31 years prior to receiving the Fisher-Wallace stimulator. I’ve been prescribed drugs of all kinds with many different results. Psycho therapy has not worked for me. I received the stimulator three days ago and immediately had positive results for both my depression and insomnia. I will be requesting reimbursement from Medicare but would keep this stimulator regardless of their decision. I highly recommend this to anyone suffering from depression or insomnia. This could put the drug companies out of work! My hat is off for this miracle device!
I was getting to the end of trying to get better. I was very suicidal and very depressed. Once I got to a certain level of using the stimulator I felt a change immediately. I do take celexa with it but I am now able to live a normal life and the depression is gone almost 100% of the time. I tell everyone I know it saved my life and I recommend it to everyone who tells me about their depression. There are no side effects at all. It’s a must have!!
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
