Every patient is unique - unique genetics and unique life experience define mental health. As patients who use our technology continue to share their stories, we see three common themes: they find medication to be inadequate, they find medication to be ineffective, or they want to try a non-drug treatment option first. We invite you to read their powerful testimonials.

What the doctors say
I have had great success using the device to treat severe, chronic insomnia in patients who are resistant to pharmacotherapy. Also, patients who seek a drug-free alternative to treat insomnia have used the Fisher Wallace Stimulator to reduce or eliminate their dependence on drugs.— Andres San Martin, M.D. Assistant Clinical Professor of Psychiatry, Columbia University
What the media says
Columbia University Associate Clinical Professor of Psychiatry Richard P. Brown says he has used the device with 400 severely depressed patients and that more than 70% find relief, about twice the rate of anti-depressants.
But since I couldn't stop talking about my good mood and hypercharged focus, my friends stopped laughing and started asking if they could borrow it. I'm reluctant to let go of my stimulator, however.
