What is Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation?
If you have been fighting with depression and have tried every product under the sun with no results, transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) may be the answer for you. This noninvasive procedure uses magnetic fields to stimulate brain cells, thereby improving the symptoms of depression. Many sufferers and their families are turning to TMS:
- Decades of proven efficacy in treating depression
- An alternative to pharmaceutical treatment
- No side-effects
- Gentle and natural
More people in the United States are turning to TMS because it can be a safe alternative to prescription medications. As many who have used anti-depression medication can attest, the side effects of the medication at times may be worse than the depression itself.
Instead of using chemicals to attempt to alter your mood, TMS uses an electromagnetic coil that painlessly sits on your scalp or your forehead. During the procedure, magnetic pulses stimulate the nerve cells in your brain associated with mood and depression. For some people, the procedure may energize parts of the brain that have decreased their activity as a result of depression. With repetitive magnetic pulses, TMS can ease your depression symptoms and can lead to an improved mood.
A bright future ahead
When depression has a grip on your life, it can feel like there is no hope for the future. Nothing could be farther from the truth.
Remember, depression is a treatable medical condition. It may be that the treatments you or your loved ones have undergone were not effective. It’s time to try something new.Transcranial magnetic stimulation has been shown to work even when standard treatments, such as medication and talk therapy, do not produce results. Unlike more invasive forms of brain stimulation, TMS is a non-surgical procedure. Nothing is implanted in your body. TMS has been shown to be safe and well tolerated.
