tDCS For Depression and Pain

Hi friends.

Are any of you depressed?  Are you suffering from chronic pain?  Are you unable to sleep? Is dementia setting in?  As we age, we have been told to just accept these things as an inevitable part of aging. However, I have never been of the mindset that aging means accepting everything as being part of the aging process.  If something can change those things for the better, I say, do your research, and if it looks good, go for it!

I have been reading about something that could help with the above symptoms and more.  Transcranial brain stimulation.  TMS. The treatments are done in psychiatrist’s office, and stimulates the brain in a way that is said to heal, or improve, depression, help with PTSD, insomnia and chronic pain and even dementia.  The treatment could only be delivered in a doctor’s office which would necessitate travel back and forth 5 days a week for many months of treatment.

This technique is apparently working to ease or eliminate these symptoms, according to my research. But it is very expensive and has the inconvenience of making a trip to the doctor’s office several days a week.  You can find more information here:

I found a product that that is much less expensive and can be used in the comfort of your own home.  It seems to be delivering similar results. It is called tDCS, transcranial direct current stimulation.  Information can be found at:

  1. My grandfather is currently eighty years old. It’s good that he is living for such a long time, but he does have a depression problem. I think he also has a little memory problem also. He doesn’t recognize anybody anymore and he just sleeps all day. It’s a very sad sight. Maybe the tDCS kits you recommended can help him. I don’t think he wants to leave the house at all, so the the other option you mentioned at the beginning is impossible. Not to mention it’s not worth cost like you mentioned. Thank you for the information.

    • Hi Blame.

      Thanks for reading and commenting.

      I’m sorry to hear that your grandfather is depressed. I hope you can find something to help him. He is probably sleeping more and not wanting to go anywhere because he is depressed.

      Make sure you do your research online before deciding on this product. Like I said, I haven’t tried this device, therefore I have no personal experience. I have not recommended; but told people to research and decide for themselves. I share information I find that might be interesting for my readers. I hope they will research for themselves and make their own decision.

      I was hoping that someone would comment that has tried the device. It seems to have good reviews and the news story on PBS was impressive. I hope you find something to help your grandfather. Have you told the doctor about his depression? My mother had dementia with some depression; but a very small dose of an anti depressant helped her some. Coming up with a plan for her days and urging her to stick to a schedule helps too. One thing that helps with depression is to get up and dressed at basically the same time each day. Having set mealtimes and bedtime helps too. Also some type of exercise (can be recommended by a doctor) is beneficial.
