Neurostimulation Therapies at FHE Health
Everyday our brains are bombarded with stimuli for what we see, smell, taste, hear, touch, think and feel. All of this raw information is converted into electrical energy that travels to the brain via nerve impulses for processing. However, when drugs or alcohol enter our body, they interrupt our normal sensory information processes. These substances either mimic neurotransmitters that naturally occur in our bodies, or they cause the overproduction of neurotransmitters such as serotonin or dopamine – chemicals that are typically produced during real experiences in life that bring pleasure, excitement, etc.
As your brain artificially churns out important neurotransmitters due to drugs, your body compensates by creating fewer and fewer receptors, which is what leads to drug tolerance. Tolerance occurs when the user consumes more drugs in order to create the same desired effect, causing the brain to re-wire itself to accommodate the continued presence of drugs. When the drug usage or high comes to an end, your neural networks are left dysregulated with neurons reacting to the lack of artificial neurotransmitters, resulting in withdrawal symptoms and intense cravings.
It takes time for your neural networks to repair themselves and return to normal. However, at FHE Health, we offer a series of electrical, vibrational and biofeedback stimulation therapies designed to encourage the neural repair process and to combat the symptoms of neural dysfunction, such as cravings, withdrawals, depression, anxiety, attention problems and memory loss.
Neurostimulation is not ECT (Electroconvulsive therapy). ECT is approximately 40,000 times stronger than neurostimulation. Since the intensity of the current is so low (0.5 – 2.5 mA), there has not been one significant adverse effect reported in over 30,000 trials.
