"I have   had   great   success   using   the   device   to   treat   severe,   chronic   insomnia   in   pa1ents   who   are   resistant   to   pharmacotherapy.   Also,   pa1ents  who  seek  a  drug-­‐free  alterna1ve  to  treat  insomnia  have  used   the   Cranial   S1mulator   to   reduce   or   eliminate   their   dependence   on   prescrip1on  drugs.”   -­‐  Andres  San  Mar1n,  MD      Professor  of  Psychiatry      Columbia  University,  College  of  Physicians  and  Surgeons   Cranial   Electrotherapy   S1mula1on   delivers   a   gentle   electrical   current   via   sponge   electrodes   to   s1mulate   the   produc1on   of   serotonin,   GABA,   endorphins  and  other  neurochemicals  responsible   for   improving   mood   and   sleep.   The   FDA   has   cleared   the   Fisher   Wallace   S1mulator   for   the   treatment  of  depression,  anxiety  and  insomnia.     The   device   causes   no   serious   side   effects   and   there   are   no   contraindica1ons   when   using   the   device   in   conjunc1on   with   any   medica1on.   Pa1ents   typically   use   the   device   at   home   for   twenty  minutes,  once  or  twice  a  day.       Over  600  board  cer1fied  psychiatrists  prescribe  the  Fisher  Wallace  S1mulator.    The  device  must   be  purchased  on  the  order  of  a  licensed  healthcare  prac11oner,  such  as  a  Psychologist,  General   Prac11oner,  Psychiatrist,  Nurse  Prac11oner,  Osteopath  or  other  licensed  medical  professional.   To   find   a   prac11oner   who   is   familiar   with   our   device   and   has   an   office   near   your   zip   code,   follow  this  link:   Pa1ents   may   return   the   device   for   a   refund   within   60   days   of   receipt   if   the   device   does   not   successfully   treat   their   symptoms.     Please   call   to   speak   with   one   of   our   highly   trained   professionals:  (212)  688  –  8100.
