Brain zapping

In 2013, the LA Times chronicled the unsuccessful efforts of former Army Staff Sergeant Jonathan Warren to heal from with post-traumatic stress disorder. Today, Warren says he is finally free of symptoms, because of an experimental treatment called magnetic resonance therapy, or MRT.

This procedure pulses energy from magnetic coils into the cortex. Warren and scores of other combat vets have been drawn by word of mouth to private clinics for what some of them call “brain zapping.” They and their loved ones rave about the positive results.

The FDA approved MRT for drug-resistant major depression in 2008.

Off-label use of MRT for disorders such as PTSD, autism, arthritis, sports injuries and osteoporosis are available at some private clinics. Studies of how, why and whether it really works on these conditions are in their infancy.

MRT is not covered by insurance. It is offered free of charge at the Brain Treatment Center to former service members.

  1. I haz a theory that I’m too tired to type out right now. Involves the recent story about using magnets to effects a persons belief, and ties into electric universe theory. . . but I gotta get to bed, so I’ll try to write a thought or two tomorrow. . .
