tACS – Transcranial Alternating Current Stimulator – A Tool For The Mind

Chip Fisher, New York, New York, is President and CEO of Fisher Wallace Laboratories, manufacturers of the Fisher Wallace Stimulator, a non-invasive home use medical device which treats depression, anxiety, and insomnia, as well as different forms of chronic pain using a mild form of electrotherapy. Chip brings an additional peer-reviewed, FDA cleared technology for a variety of refractory conditions. I can tell you with no hesitation his Fisher Wallace device has worked surprisingly well for patients with dramatic treatment failure after a wide variety of medications with additional intervention strategies and is definitely worth your review.

Even more importantly for listeners at CBJ, he is smart, entertaining and focused on useful information to proved improved understanding for this interesting device that holds much promise for treatment failure.

More About CES | tACS Stimulator – CES: Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation

Cleared by the FDA, The Fisher Wallace Stimulator provides accessible and cost-effective treatment for depression and anxiety. During each 20-minute treatment session (once or twice a day), the device stimulates the brain to produce serotonin while lowering cortisol (the stress hormone). N.B. Patients should not reduce or cease taking antidepressant medication without first speaking to their doctor.

Treat Symptoms with Advanced Technology

Designed collaboratively by world-class engineers and physicians, the Fisher Wallace Stimulator® uses patented waveforms to gently stimulate the brain to produce serotonin and other neurochemicals responsible for healthy mood and sleep. Unlike antidepressant medication that inhibits neuronal receptors from absorbing serotonin, the Fisher Wallace Stimulator® enables the brain to produce serotonin naturally while improving the brain’s ability to regulate the limbic system. See the links below for specific comments.

Ed Note:

Brief personal endorsement: I’ve personally witnessed significant improvements with this device and do recommend it for several types of patients after medical review:

  • Veterans with anxiety, sleep, addiction, and PTSD symptoms – See our Vets Page here.
  • Those who remain philosophically firm on “no psychiatric medications.”
  • Treatment refractory clients who face the challenge of poor response to multiple trials of medications.
  • See details here.
