Depression Q & A

Why do I have depression?

Depression may begin for an obvious reason. You may feel depressed as a result of constant arguments with your partner, conflicts with children, or financial instability. Learning that you or a loved one has a serious illness and making major life transitions also causes depression.

Depression could also develop without an identifiable cause. If that happens, chances are you have an imbalance in neurotransmitters (brain chemicals) and sluggish nerve communication.

No matter what causes your symptoms, depression lasting longer than two weeks seldom improves on its own, so don’t wait longer to seek help.

What symptoms will I experience if I have depression? 

Though there are several types of depression and many possible causes, they all share the same symptoms:

  • Feeling sad, hopeless, and worthless
  • Losing interest in activities you usually enjoy
  • Gaining or losing weight 
  • Having insomnia or oversleeping
  • Moving slowly and aimlessly
  • Feeling drained of energy
  • Struggling to concentrate
  • Thinking about death or suicide

You may also have symptoms you wouldn’t expect while depressed. For example, depression can make you feel irritated, angry, and anxious.

How does MeRT improve depression?

The standard treatment for depression includes antidepressants and/or psychotherapy (talk therapy). But traditional treatments don’t help everyone, so it’s good to know that you have another option at Reign-Bow Treatment Center.

Its experienced providers specialize in MeRT, which uses repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) to stimulate the specific brain areas responsible for depression.

Your provider targets your specific brain area by performing a qualitative electroencephalogram (qECG) and an electrocardiogram (EKG). These tests measure your brain wave frequencies, heart rate, and how well your brain and heart work together.

After analyzing your information, your provider identifies the brain area and amount of magnetic stimulation needed to boost nerve activity and restore brain balance. Then, you simply relax in a treatment chair for 45 minutes while the rTMS device sends safe, painless magnetic pulses into that area.

The magnetic pulses rewire your brain, boosting nerve activity and improving nerve communication in the areas regulating your mood. 

As rTMS restores healthy brain function, your depression symptoms improve. To get the best results, you’ll need a series of five rTMS sessions every week for 6-8 weeks.
