Most everyone has heard of Area 51, the mysterious place where top secret military aircraft are tested and where, reportedly, UFOs like to visit. So what is Area 25, well, Brodmann Area 25?
Research shows that Brodmann Area 25, deep within the human brain, is probably the home of depression related symptoms. The wonderful thing is, now that this location is known (and how it works is known, too), a wide variety of invasive and non-invasive treatments can come to bear on it, providing tremendous relief for millions that suffer in silence.
I mention this because I am concerned for the 25 million Americans that suffer from mild to severe depression symptoms – most of whom are untreated – and because thousands attempt suicide each year. Just now, help is becoming available that does not involve expensive medications and sometimes terrible side effects. I also believe that if you have special knowledge that can help people, you have a moral obligation to share it.
All of this maps so beautifully into what I have been learning about tDCS over the last several months. It happens that at least a couple of tDCS scenarios (called a montage) address Area 25 of the brain and studies already report very positive treatment results.
If you are not familiar with tDCS, see my web site http://www.speakwisdom.com or take a look at http://www.transcranialbrainstimulation.com. In a nutshell, it is amazing technology involving a simple, safe procedure in which a tiny electrical current sourced from a 9 volt battery in a tDCS device is connected to the scalp via water soaked sponges. It’s being used to treat depression, chronic pain, Parkinson’s, enhance learning and recall, and more.
One of several ways to treat Area 25 is to place the anode (plus) sponge in the area of the right temple and the cathode (negative) sponge in the area of the left temple. Treatment is normally 20 minutes repeated daily for up to 30 days, but does vary by case. Followup treatment, if required, is typically once per week. Once trained, individuals can do their own treatments at home!
Just think, you or someone you know could be set free by this great new technology – no drugs, no side effects – definitely worth looking into. Help stamp out misery and suicide by getting the word out about tDCS and Area 25. Hey, even the military now uses tDCS – maybe they have been keeping secrets at Area 51!
