I've been doing alot of research on drug free methods of treating depression, , anxiety, ocd etc. There is a new device that has recently come on the market that has been approved by the FDA in the treatment of depression, and and insomnia. Basically it stimulates the brain using very low frequency electrical impulses.

IF you google "Fisher Wallace" you will find a link to the manufactures web site. The device is no cheap - $700. I was thinking of picking one up to give a try, but wanted to see if any of you have opinions on it before forking out that kind of loot.

There are dozens of links on the internet about the device. Also its now being prescribed by psychiatrists.

Snake oil? Or are they on to something here?

Hi nicko953,

From what I know about this device it is a simple nerve stimulator that is extremely overpriced.

I have a very high quality electrical acupuncture set which can do this and a lot more which cost me

I just saw this on my Google Alerts. Full disclosure, I work for Fisher Wallace Labs. If you don't want to use our device, fine, but don't put a TENS device on your head. A TENS device puts out 20X the amount of electricity as a CES device, and could cause tissue damage / thermal damage. I won't pitch our product in this forum, but I'll say our medical advisory board has several of the top psychiatrists in the country, including the retired chairman of psychiatry at NYU medical school.

Hi Kelly, I don't mind you plugging your product here. If you feel uncomfortable posting can you please PM me? Your disclosure actually says alot. Here is my question: Why is your device so expensive? If you had a lot of success with it and have sold many units, I would expect the price to be much lower. I would be willing to try anything, but $700 is a lot to risk if it didn't work.

The price factors in several things: 1.) there is the cost of manufacturing in the USA, which is higher than China or India where our competitors are manufactured 2.) there is a lot of overhead involved in running a medical device company, including investment in personnel and resources to operate under FDA regulation 3.) acquiring the patents to the technology required a large investment 4.) we have the most aggressive return policy in the industry, and that costs a lot of money to provide 5.) we need to make a profit in order to survive as a business

all this said, $700 is not expensive when compared to the cost of pharmaceutical drug treatment

Hey Painted in a Corner-

I'm also very interested in your experience. I have had insomnia ever since I was 10 years old, and the depression and anxiety followed at age 22 (it is my theory that a caused b). I hate taking prescriptions and rely simply on tylenol pm, but the side effects of memory loss is not the greatest, but it beats being up for days. I'm willing to give this device a go if I could just find more real testimonies that aren't in some way affiliated with Fisher Wallace.

I also enjoy your screen name,

jkaren
