Treating Depression Through Magnetic Pulses

Advertisements

scientists are researching the treatment of depression through magnetic pulses and the initial studies have proven successfully. There is also a growing interest in exploring the use of the technique for the treatment of anxiety disorders, schizophrenia,  stroke and perhaps epilepsy. In this technique, a current is induced through magnetic stimulation without actually having an electrical connection. The magnets are focused on specific regions and patients are not given any muscle relaxants or anesthesia. Scientists are hopeful that through this treatment patients will be able to get their lives back after years of deep depression.

This finding could be particularly important for patients who do not tolerate antidepressant medications, for whom they are not safe, or who have not benefited from other alternative treatments.

Side effects included headaches and scalp discomfort.

    Hi, i know how its to have a problem like this. I’ve struggling from this like a few years with the usual ups and downs so i truly know to have a problem like this. At some website i noticed some visitors were pretty happy about a pill they purchased from the internet and i ordered it when i found those pills at – herbalhealingstore dot com -. So you see, these herbals do work, you just have to find the good ones!
