Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Provides Natural Solution for Depression and Dementia

A year of social distancing has accelerated cognitive decline in many individuals. “The lack of social interaction is causing dementia cases to suffer big time and depression is on the rise,” says Dr. J. Douglas Brown, DC, DACNB, owner of the Mind Performance Center, LLC, in Foley, Alabama. Brown provides non-drug rehabilitation for a wide range of brain disorders, with an approach that fosters brain balance and performance without negative side effects.

For years he researched deep transcranial magnetic stimulation (DTMS) and its potential for dramatic improvement in the quality of life, and in 2008 this technology became an FDA-approved option for treatment-resistant depression. DTMS increases the brain’s ability to regenerate and release neurotransmitters, and when paired with brain pathway correction and the science-based nutritional program of Alzheimer’s researcher Dale Bredesen, positive results are often quick and profound.

This multifaceted approach allows the Mind Performance Center to treat and reverse dementia. “We look at patients through the functional medicine lens and know that we can’t treat one issue at a time. We have to treat all of the brain issues at once, or it won’t get better,” Brown says. In addition to dementia and depression, the center treats ADHD, traumatic brain injury, autism, anxiety, stroke and Parkinson’s.
