TMS Health Solutions Taking Services Closer to the People

Posted by ACioe1 on

Depression is the second known cause of disability worldwide. A sizeable percentage of patients suffering from resistant clinical depression do not respond to conventional medication and treatment regimes. Some patients develop intolerance to drugs used in the treatment of clinical depression. Such patients require a more innovative approach to treating them.


Trans-cranial Magnetic Stimulation is a drug-free, safe and noninvasive alternative therapy. It is effective in treating patients with acute depression, especially those who are resistant to other forms of treatment.

It is a brainchild of Dr. Richard Bermudes, and it was established in 2007. He named it TMS Health Solutions. Dr. Brad Hummel is the CEO while Dr. Richard Bermudes is the chief medical officer.


Its headquarters are in San Francisco. TMS Health Solutions works to make its services accessible. They have other branches in Oakland, Sacramento, Eldorado Hills, Roseville, and Burlingame where they offer trans-cranial stimulation therapy. They comprise of a group of clinicians with a focus on research, treating patients with mental illness such as clinical depression.


They showed their dedication to taking services closer to the people by recently opening the TMS therapy Roseville. The clinic is located close to the Caltrain and Millbrae stations, which makes it convenient for patients to locate it.


Highly qualified psychiatrists operate all TMS Health Solution Clinics. The most notable are Dr. Noah DeGaetano, a trained and board certified psycho-pharmacologist; Dr. Abel Bumgarner, an adult psychiatrist who is also board certified; and Dr. Richard Bermudes, a qualified psychiatrist. The three are in charge of the TMS therapy in Burlingame.


The food and drugs authority approved TMS therapy in 2008 as a safe alternative for the treatment of resistant clinical depression. The therapy is administered in about thirty sessions of forty-five minutes. They spread for between six and eight weeks and are outpatient based.


The therapies have minimal side effects, usually manifesting in headaches and muscle soreness. A small number of patients may experience seizures as a side effect of the therapy.


TMS therapy is effective in treating 30% to 60% of patients with resistant depression. A study done in France also showed that the patients have a reduced chance of recurrent depression once they complete the TMS therapy.


To make TMS therapy more accessible, the management of TMS Health Solutions ensures their patients have insurance cover. They help those without cover to get financial assistance. Insurance providers like Anthem, United Healthcare, Optum, Cigna and Blue Shield provide cover to patients in need of TMS therapy.

Bruno Fagali

     Loving your audience is important and easy. This is when ‘giveaways’ and promotional events are handy; create deals and be as ‘Bruno Fagali‘ as possible. If you go out of your way for a customer, he will recommend you to someone else. Word of mouth has always been the basis of marketing; before computers and technology, ‘word of mouth’ was the only type of marketing there was. Get your audience to believe in your product, and become someone they care about. Customer loyalty creates consistent sales. The only way to do make them care about you is by caring about them.

The Media and Lies – Bruno Fagali

     When we are young we are taught that lying is wrong and when you lie there are consequences. When we become older and more knowledgeable, we learn that lying is only wrong when you’re caught, however, if it’s the right thing to do than it’s okay. For example, in a movie called “Lincoln”, President Lincoln lies about there being a terms of surrender from the South. In telling that lie, the thirteenth amendment was passed and slavery became illegal. Was that the right thing to do? Absolutely.

President Lincoln told a lie that pushed the media in a certain direction causing an uproar that resulted in the abolishment of slavery. He was also a lawyer and, in my opinion, lawyers have to tell lies; it’s part of the job. In order to win a case, lawyers like Bruno Fagali play into the media by either using it to their advantage or avoiding it all together.

One thing society can always count on is the media lying to them. The United States is a freedom of speech country, meaning you can say whatever you want! In Bruno Fagali’s opinion, this trend challenges us as consumers to stay sharp. You can’t take anything at face value, forcing us to do research on our own and pick through what is real and what is just a gimmick. It keeps us questioning everything, which in turn makes our society smarter.

Businesses Taking a Stance: Honey Birdette on the Australian Marriage Equality Plebiscite

Posted by ACioe1 on

There has always been the question on whether it is wise for any business to take a stance on controversial issues. Especially considering the risk of such issues dividing customers. Australia’s leading lingerie brand Honey Birdette recently took a bold step in attempting to do this. 60 of the brand’s models and employees recently showed its stand on the marriage equality matter in Australia. They did this by marching in the streets of Sidney.

The workers did this clad in lingerie with signs saying ‘#freethenipple’ and ‘make love, not plebiscite’. This drew a backlash from some members of the public, but others were impressed and liked the idea. Honey Birdette’s managing director and founder Eloise Monaghan, later on, gave a statement concerning the matter. She stated that she understood the brand can be polarising but liked the fact that it sparked a good debate on the goings on out there.

In another matter, Honey Birdette caused a stir with a couple of posters in Rundle Mall. One of the models in the posters had her nipple visible. Most notably, a mother and her adult daughter thought the posters could offend people. Stacey, the daughter, said that she saw the image from two perspectives. One, she would wear the advertised product to please her partner. Two, she thought it was raunchy to some extent considering kids could see it.

Phil Martin, an Adelaide City Councillor, said he believed people had the right to consume whatever they wanted. He, however, added that the images had the potential to offend people in public places. According to him, such images should not be placed outside stores to reduce the likelihood of offending. Another councilor, Anne Moran deemed the posters okay by stating that they were just on edge towards being offensive.
