DEPRESSION
improvement range
25% - 80%

So far, at least 18 scientific studies have been published on depression, with an average improvement of 47% reported.  The improvement found in various studies has ranged from 25% to 80%.  Typically, then, CES;

  • gets as good or better results as do the typical antidepressant medications,

  • alleviates depression sooner than do most medications,

  • does not have the often very negative side effects of medication, and

  • one purchases a CES device only once, while antidepressant medications often have to be purchased for months or years, or even for the lifetime of the patient [1].

In terms of psychiatric diagnosis, “depression” is typically associated with specific disorders. Current psychiatric diagnosis is outlined in the DSM-IV [2].

Depression (depressed mood) may also be related to a variety of psychiatric diagnoses (including major depressive disorder, bipolar depression and schizoaffective disorders) and is the predominant feature of major depressive episode (MDE). The mood in a MDE is often described by the person as depressed, sad, hopeless, discouraged or “down in the dumps” (Criterion A1) [3].

 

The essential feature of a MDE is a period of at least 2 weeks during which there is either depressed mood or the loss of interest or pleasure in nearly all activities. The individual must also experience at least four additional symptoms drawn from a list that includes changes in appetite or weight, sleep, and psychomotor activity; decreased energy; feelings of worthlessness or guilt; difficulty thinking, concentrating, or making decisions; or recurrent thoughts of death or suicidal ideation, plans, or attempts.
