I don’t know about you but one of the first things I think about when treatment for clinical depression or chemical imbalance is being talked about is prescription drugs! Lots of them. But a team of Northern California clinicians beg to differ on that very stereotypical assumption that drugs are the only way to go about taking down the giant called Depression. Although many do indeed benefit from medication when treating for clinical depression, surely not all medication works the same for all patients, sometimes not at all. With that in mind the team at TMH Health Solutions in San Francisco have dedicated their all to develop the Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation or TMS THERAPY.
What is TMS Therapy? Glad you asked. It is a non-invasive brain stimulation therapy where localized electromagnetic pulses are released to the brain causing nerve cells to improve the symptoms of depression in individuals who do not respond to antidepressive medication. Founder of the research Dr. Bermudes calls this condition Treatment-Resistant Depression (TRD).
Through it’s no medication/non invasive ways TMS Therapy has zero of the less than desirable side effects that would typically be experienced when on prescribed antidepressive medications.
Why should you care? One, you may have be incessantly looking for something that would actually help not knowing that perhaps you suffer from Treatment-Resistant Depression (TRD) and may be tired of treating depression symptoms in ways that have yet to render any positive effect. Two, if you are one who deliberately wishes to not ingest medication, TMS Therapy may be just the answer to your prayers in wanting to refrain from chemicals and still treat clinical depression and it’s horrendous symptoms. Three, you may know of someone who struggles double from having depression and being on medications that are doing nothing to improve their situation.
Knowledge is power, spread the word and let others know about TMS Therapy. Depression needs to be ripped of it’s taboo and now! With their welcoming and genuine desire to offer the treatment many need, the clinicians at the TMS Health Solutions in San Francisco are ready to help.
