Can Electricity Replace Drugs?

Can Electricity Replace Drugs?

Today, 85% of adults in the U.S. use chemicals to change their brains in pursuit of happiness, energy, focus, and everything in between.

But when you try to change the brain with chemicals — like coffee, adderall, and antidepressants — you can’t control what part of the brain the chemical interacts with. That’s why side effects are so prevalent — chemicals affect the parts of the brain they need to and the parts of the brain they don’t.

What if there was a different way to talk to the brain — one with no crash, no insomnia, and no addiction potential?

There is... Electricity.

Did you know the brain is an electric organ? Everything that happens in the brain is a result of electricity flowing from one place to another.

So why don’t we talk to the brain with electricity instead? Some people think it’s scary to add electricity to the brain — but actually, you’re speaking the brain’s language.

That’s exactly what transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) does. tDCS is a non-invasive form of brain stimulation that uses electricity to change the brain. It can even target a specific area of the brain, so only the part of the brain that needs help, gets it.

Imagine a future where electricity replaces drugs. Electricity is already being used to treat depression, stroke, epilepsy, Parkinson's disease… even athletes are using electricity to improve faster. What’s next?
