That's the rub, everything that I've seen & read (I'll look for links) shows a return to stasis shortly after the TMS has been removed. The guy on Phil uses tried & true psychotherapy & drugs to 'supplement' repeated TMS exposure therapy. His is just a novel placebo effect with all of the institutional trimmings.
. Thirty-six drug resistant subjects with OCD were assigned to 9-84 sessions of QEEG-guided NF treatment. Daily sessions lasted 60 minutes where 2 sessions with half-hour applications with a 30 minute rest given between sessions were conducted per day. Thirty-three out of 36 subjects who received NF training showed clinical improvement according to the Yale-Brown obsessive-compulsive scale (Y-BOCS). The Minnesota multiphasic inventory (MMPI) was administered before and after treatment to 17 of the subjects. The MMPI results showed significant improvements not only in OCD measures, but all of the MMPI scores showed a general decrease. Finally, according to the physicians' evaluation of the subjects using the clinical global impression scale (CGI), 33 of the 36 subjects were rated as improved. Thirty-six of the subjects were followed for an average of 26 months after completing the study. According to follow-up interviews conducted with them and/or their family members 19 of the subjects maintained the improvements in their OCD symptoms.

I dunno guys.. this one guy on Dr Phil, his parents had tried everything. he has a unique form of OCD even neurofeedback didn't work. As far as the cure goes.. they did not talk like it's a temporary solution but a permanent fix. they showed brain scans of before and after, showing how the part of the brain responsible for the OCD returned to a normal healthy state.edit on 19-10-2012 by JohnPhoenix because: sp
