In this episode, we discover the most effective natural treatment for depression, anxiety, insomnia, and chronic pain that you’ve probably never heard of – but that thousands of psychiatrists and primary care providers are already providing to their patients.
So what is this veritable panacea for the mind?
It’s the Fisher Wallace Stimulator®, a wearable neurostimulation device invented by electrical engineers in partnership with physicians and research scientists. Joining the show to teach us more about this device and why Electroconvulsive therapy treatments are so effective is Kelly Roman, co-founder of Fisher Wallace Laboratories.
The Fisher Wallace Stimulator® received FDA-Clearance for the treatment of depression, anxiety, and insomnia back in 1990 under the original brand name Liss Cranial Stimulator®. By 2010, several hundred psychiatrists were prescribing the device and finding it to be effective with thousands of treatment-resistant patients.
In 2015, additional clinical research was launched at Mount Sinai Beth Israel Hospital and Phoenix House, resulting in a landmark study on bipolar depression. In 2017, Medicaid in Maine approved the Fisher Wallace Stimulator® for full coverage. And today, more than 9000 providers recommend the Fisher Wallace Stimulator® to their patients.
So this is a full-blown, government-approved wearable device that thousands of people are benefitting from today, and that thousands more could surely benefit from if they knew this alternative to prescription drugs existed.
I used to be on medication and it really made me feel terrible. I was in a bad place and I needed some help, but I wish I had known an alternative like this existed. So if you know someone who is struggling with more traditional treatments for depression, anxiety, insomnia, or chronic pain, let them know about Fisher Wallace.
