My T says the VA is now using this as a treatment and referred me to a local clinic. I did some research and it looks like it may help with ptsd - but wondering if anyone has actually tried it? Good? Bad? Indifferent?
yikes!!! ya - that's gonna be a big trigger - and so is the pounding on the head thing...in my case, it resulted in the activation part of the sequence also causing my teeth to clamp down and paralyzing my tongue.
I do disagree - but speaking only as a treatment for depression. I think the follow-up wave of companies conducting research to get protocols approved for other diagnoses...that's where I'd agree, there's an overreach. But the science behind the mechanism of action for depression is sound, and I'd encourage anyone with mild to moderate chronic MDD to try it; it has put people into remission.it's not little more than snake oil.
It is a lot of work.I just read that it often is a temporary fix, which seems like a lot of work for something that might only last a couple months.
They do something of a ramping up, so there's a chance to get used to it....but still, it's not the easiest thing. I can tell you that the experience with the Neurostar machines is MUCH better than it is with Brainsways. Unfortunately, the latter seems to have more machines out there. The Neurostar was the first one developed, and it's not nearly as physically uncomfortable. The experiences I described were for Brainsways. Woodpecker is the same for both.yikes!!! ya - that's gonna be a big trigger - and so is the pounding on the head thing.
