Microcurrent Electrical Stimulation To Treat Depression

Depression and anxiety are the two most common mental health disorders.

Together they affect more than 60-million Americans.

Doctor Jose Rosell spent his life in medicine, but became a patient after suffering a stroke in May.

He became extremely depressed.

Instead of talk therapy or medication, Jose found help with Microcurrent Electrical Stimulation.

More than 100 studies show it helps depression, anxiety, sleep disorders and even pain.

Electrical current travels through electrodes and activate nerve cells in the brainstem, producing feel good chemicals like seratonin and acetylcholine. "It's not just for people who find themselves depressed or anxious, but it's for people who live a high stressful lifestyle and want to be able to keep doing it," explains Janet Konefal, Ph.D.

As a doctor, Jose was skeptical, but he bought his own system and has been using it every day.

The therapy is approved by the FDA, but is not covered by insurance.

You can buy the therapy for about 500 dollars for home use or patients can use it in a clinic for less.
