Fortunately, science and technology are advancing at breakneck speed enabling new treatment options with greater efficacy. One such breakthrough is called Magnetic eResonance Therapy (MeRT). No, MeRT isn’t yet another medication promising relief but delivering mostly side effects. In fact, it is not a pill at all. It’s a non-pharma and non-invasive approach to treating depression that leverages Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) equipment, which has been approved by the FDA and used for decades to successfully treat a range of neurological disorders) with patented technology and personalized treatment plans to deliver real, tangible relief to millions of patients across the globe.
But don’t take our word for it, according to recent studies about the effectiveness of TMS in treating Depression:
- 50-60% of patients who’ve failed to receive benefit from medications experienced a clinically meaningful response
- 70% experience a decrease in depressive symptoms
- 40% of individuals experience remission
If you can’t tolerate antidepressants and other pharmaceutical treatment options, there’s hope. TMS does not affect the body the way medication does. Medications circulate in the body through blood whereas MeRT TMS is personalized, targeted stimulation of the brain – noninvasively.
Medications such as antidepressants may have side effects such as nausea, sexual dysfunction, dry mouth and/or weight changes. TMS is non-systemic and non-invasive, patients can resume regular activity immediately after each treatment session. Side effects are generally not an issue, mild headaches are the most common side effect but can be managed with an over the counter pain reliever like aspirin or Tylenol and usually resolve within a week of treatments.
Every individual’s response to treatment is different because every patient is different. With anything, it’s important to do your research.
