Magnetic eResonance Therapy (MeRT) is a groundbreaking technology that can help eradicate symptoms of common neurological issues. Treatments can help patients that have PTSD, autism, depression, anxiety, insomnia and targets other disruptions in the brain.
An MeRT Treatment is a four-step process that uses magnetic waves to stimulate specific areas of the brain and improve its function. Every person’s brain is unique and needs personalized treatments, but the following is what a MeRT process is like.
- Brain Mapping: To understand what your brain is like, a qEEG is taken in 10 minutes to understand its frequencies. An EKG will also be taken to understand how your heart and brain communicate.
- Analysis: Next step is to analyze the data received from the qEEG and EKG. Neurological issues such as PTSD, autism and depression can be spotted as well as other cognitive difficulties including chronic stress and poor memory can be seen.
- MeRT Treatment: A treatment plan is created for each person but may take four to six weeks with five 45-minute sessions each week. Your brain will be stimulated in intervals of six to eight seconds while you relax comfortably.
- Progress Evaluation: Progress takes a long time to track. But if there is not noticeable improvement in an area, then the treatment may be modified.
Effectiveness of MeRT
MeRT is a transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) that is specialized to applying magnetic stimulation to exactly the right spots using a detailed, personalized brain map. Wave Neuro, the company behind MeRT, has documented success in treating several cognitive and mental health issues.
For individuals with autism an MeRT can help improve their social behaviors, speech, eye contact, sleep patterns, and more. Patients saw an improvement in verbal non-verbal communication by 66% and 70% had improved eye contact.
People with PTSD often have brainwave disruptions in the front of the brain. MeRT can disrupt the strong alpha frequency that causes it and improve memory, cognitive processing and stabilize emotions.
People with depression show asymmetrical brain activity. With MeRT, the target is to balance the brain’s right and left hemispheres.
Patients with traumatic brain injuries also had improvements. Some athletes suffered from TBI and were able to recover and perform at their best level.Read Full Article
