NeuroStar Advanced Therapy is now FDA-Cleared for OCD and Anxious Depression

About us

Welcome to NeuroHealth Consulting

NeuroHealth was formed because we recognized that behavioral therapy and medications were not resolving the problem of severe depression. This realization led us to seek alternative treatment options for Major Depression. This search ended when we were introduced to the NeuroStar Advanced Therapy system, the #1 TMS choice for doctors nationally!

NeuroStar Advanced Therapy is not a drug, “shock therapy”, surgery, or a clinical trial. It is a safe, effective treatment for depression without the systemic side effects of medication.

What is transcranial magnetic stimulation

NeuroStar Advanced Therapy is Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), a non-drug treatment for major depression. During the NeuroStar Advanced Therapy treatment sessions, a magnet that is similar in strength to one that is utilized in a MRI (magnetic resonance imaging)machine, is used to stimulate the nerve cells in the brain area that are thought to control a person’s mood.
These magnetic pulses can have a positive effect on an individual’s brain transmitter levels which can make long-term remission possible.

Frequently asked questions

TMS stands for transcranial magnetic stimulation. It is used to treat depression by stimulating the brain non-invasively using electromagnetic fields, similar to those produced by an MRI machine. During NeuroStar Advanced Therapy TMS, a magnetic field is administered in very short pulses to the part of the brain that research has demonstrated to be associated with depression. The typical initial course of treatment is about 19-37 minutes daily over 7 weeks.

The NeuroStar Advanced Therapy TMS system uses short pulses of magnetic fields to stimulate the area of the brain that is thought to function abnormally in patients with depression. The magnetic field produces an electric current in the brain that stimulates the brain cells (neurons). This results in changes that are thought to be beneficial in the treatment of depression.

It usually takes time for healthcare insurers to establish coverage policies for newly approved treatments such as NeuroStar Advanced Therapy TMS. However, many commercial and Medicare plans have recognized the effectiveness of treating depression with NeuroStar Advanced Therapy TMS and now cover NeuroStar Advanced Therapy TMS as part of their plans. See here for a full list of insurance plans that cover TMS.

NeuroStar Advanced Therapy TMS is non-systemic (does not circulate in the blood throughout the body), so it does not have side effects such as weight gain, sexual dysfunction, nausea, dry mouth, sedation, etc. The most common side effects reported during clinical trials were headache and scalp discomfort – generally mild to moderate – occurring less frequently after the first week of treatment.

No. NeuroStar Advanced Therapy TMS involves a unique method of using pulsed magnetic fields for therapeutic benefit. The intensity of the magnetic field is similar to that of the magnetic fields used in magnetic resonance imaging, or MRI. These techniques differ radically from the popular use of low intensity, static magnetic fields. These products deliver weak and undirected static fields that are not capable of activating brain cells.
