Why Alpha-Stim Works Even When Medications Have Failed
What Is Alpha-Stim?
The Alpha-Stim electrotherapy device is proven effective and safe for pain management and treatment of anxiety, insomnia, and depression. It has no lasting side effects, no risk of addiction, and no danger of interaction with medications.
How Does It Work?
Your brain naturally has electrical currents. The Alpha-Stim cranial electrotherapy stimulation (CES) device delivers a natural level of microcurrent, via small clips worn on your earlobes, through the brain to stimulate and modulate specific groups of nerve cells. The patented Alpha-Stim waveform, application, and protocols result in significant anxiety relief, mood normalization, and better sleep (both in quality and duration).
Every single mood and emotion you experience – including anxiety and depression – is controlled by electrochemical signals in your brain. The medical profession primarily relies on drugs for neurological treatment to manipulate those electrochemical signals, but prescription medications are not the only path to relief.
Alpha-Stim treatment is focused on the electro part of electrochemical, instead of the chemical, allowing for a more focused treatment with practically no side-effects. By stimulating functional centers of the brain through the vestibulocochlear nerve, Alpha-Stim helps regulate and reset activity in key brain regions associated with mood disorders.
Alpha-Stim therapy is also FDA-approved for treating insomnia. The brain has electrochemical signals that control whether we are asleep or awake. Alpha-Stim simply delivers pulses of low-intensity currents to the brain via cranial nerves in a specific pattern called a waveform. Despite being nearly imperceptible, these pulses modulate the brain’s electrochemical signals and bring them back into balance, leading to deeper, longer, and more restful sleep.
Patients can also experience pain relief by using the Alpha-Stim M-Model. The M-Model electrotherapy device relieves post-traumatic, acute and chronic pain through painless electrical stimulation delivered via two handheld Smart Probes. It can be used on its own or in conjunction with physical therapy, medication and other forms of pain management.
Increasingly, medical experts recognize the Alpha-Stim CES device as an effective, therapeutic intervention without medication and without the risk of addiction.
What Is Treatment Like?
When incorporated into in-office treatment plans, treatments take about 40 minutes and the ear clips are simply worn during the majority of your visit. Devices are also available to rent or purchase for at-home use. Treatment set-up is simple and easy to do, and patients can use Alpha-Stim while doing most activities like reading, cleaning the house, etc. Patients can even take it to work with them. The device is portable and the ear clips are unobtrusive; it just looks like they are listening to music.
Alpha-Stim uses a mild microcurrent similar to the type and amount of electrical activity naturally occurring in your brain to synchronize brain areas. The microcurrent is tiny, just millionths of an ampere, and so gentle that most people don’t even feel it. The device transmits a unique, patented waveform through small clips on patients’ earlobes that send a mild current through the brain, modulating specific groups of nerve cells. This leads to significant anxiety relief, and mood normalization.
Each treatment builds on the progress of the last. Over time, as patients experience longer and longer periods of relief from anxiety, they often find that they need to use the Alpha-Stim less frequently after the first few 2-3 weeks of treatment.
The Alpha-Stim electrotherapy device delivers lasting results for pain, anxiety, depression, and anxiety without dangerous side effects, tolerance, or addiction. In 30+ years and clinical studies involving more than 8,800 people, Alpha-Stim users have reported no serious side effects. The two most common side effects were headaches (0.1%) and skin irritation at the electrode sites (0.07%, only seen in light-skinned people). If these ever do occur, they can be minimized by decreasing the intensity or Built-in safety features ensure that the electrotherapy device is functioning properly.
