A theory currently in development in the medical community is this: individuals suffer lower health depending on their place of residency. This has nothing to do with the content of the water; we aren’t talking about places like Flint, Michigan. This theory does deal with physical help, but it is primarily concerned with mental health based on location. Everyone knows that industrial activity causes pollution, but several recent studies suggest that people living in industrial areas also suffer mental detriments. This is caused by a resident’s perception of the area they live in.

The original idea was first thought of in 1981. Sociologists have been adding to these findings over the years: in 1988, 1989, and 1995. Researcher who have expanded on the theory have suggested that this mental health deterioration could be caused by social responsibilities that come with living in particular places rather than the location itself. Research done by Caspi and colleagues in the year 2000 even suggests that children who live in low-income areas can suffer from low mental health.

Pumping more prescription medications into these low income areas should be out of the question. The good news is: innovative therapy is available from those who have suffered through clinical depression for years. It is called Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation, or TMS therapy.

This is the process of putting magnetic coils against the head and using the coils to stimulate unused parts of the brain. The brain of a depressed individual becomes accustomed to only using certain parts of their brains; TMS therapy will activate unused parts of the brain – parts of the brain that control positive motivation and happiness. This type of therapy targets the prefrontal cortex, kick starting it and teaching it how to behave even after the TMS therapy is over.

TMS Health Solutions is just one of the companies offering this innovative therapy. It operated out of the San Francisco area.

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation should be reserved for those who have exhausted their resources – those who have suffered from clinical depression despite being on medication.

TMS Health Solutions and other clinics offering this innovative therapy could be a great option for employers who can’t afford to lose a good employee. When an employer sees a worker feeling down, it is common practice for that employer to console him and offer him support. Sometimes medication doesn’t work, or sometimes employees have adverse side effects to this medication. TMS, the innovative new therapy for depression is an option for companies who want to save a depressed citizen.
