Blogging Again and New Depression Treatment

I’ve decid­ed to try going back to post­ing on my blog more fre­quent­ly rather than on all the var­i­ous social media plat­forms, so you’re going to hear more from me!

This sto­ry is def­i­nite­ly excit­ing to me as some­one who has been treat­ed for (treat­ment-resis­tant) major depres­sive dis­or­der for over thir­ty years. I’ve tried tran­scra­nial mag­net­ic stim­u­la­tion (TMS) and had good results from it, but appar­ent­ly, this new vari­a­tion is even better.

The rem­e­dy was a new type of repet­i­tive tran­scra­nial mag­net­ic stim­u­la­tion (rTMS) called “Stan­ford neu­ro­mod­u­la­tion ther­a­py.” By adding imag­ing tech­nol­o­gy to the treat­ment and upping the dose of rTMS, sci­en­tists have devel­oped an approach that’s more effec­tive and works more than eight times faster than the cur­rent approved treatment.
