Magnetic Therapy Treats Depression
People suffering with depression may have a new shot at relief thanks to magnetic therapy.
According to a news report, non-invasive magnetic pulses are being tested as a treatment for clinical depression, which affects about 19 million Americans. The theory behind the treatment is that the magnetic pulses encourage the release of serotonin and dopamine, which affect the pleasure centers of the brain and counteract the symptoms of depression.
Clinical trials report that the procedure, which is performed in 40 minute increments over several weeks, successfully affects a third of participants.
