What is the Alpha-Stim AID?
The Alpha-Stim AID is a device that has been designed to effectively treat anxiety, depression and insomnia, without the use of drugs. These results can be achieved without the need for invasive treatment and without the risk of dangerous side effects. Unlike with medication that is often used to treat these conditions, there is no risk of addiction. The device can also be safely used as a complementary therapy alongside most other treatment methods.
What about conventional medicine?
Conventional treatment methods for mental health problems and sleeping difficulties often include talking therapies and prescribed medication. While these methods can provide much relief for some patients, they don’t always work for everyone. In addition, these types of medication can cause side effects, which vary in severity. For some people, the side effects can outweigh the benefits of taking certain types of medication.
Drugs prescribed for insomnia can also be very addictive and are only advised to be taken as a temporary measure. The total cost of poor mental health is estimated to be around £105 billion every year in England alone. Therefore, having treatment that not only works, but is also affordable, is crucial. These are just some of the reasons why may people turn to alternative medicine to seek relief from their symptoms.
How does the treatment work?
The Alpha-Stim device uses a technique called Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation (CES). This works through tiny electrical currents that are administered through electrodes clipped onto the ears. The electrodes deliver a patented waveform that can help to provide relief from anxiety, depression and insomnia. Some people even experience immediate easing of their symptoms and feel more relaxed after just one treatment.
Mental and emotional health problems and sleeping difficulties are controlled by the brain, as part of the central nervous system (CNS). A network of nerves then transmits these electrochemical signals all over the body.
The Alpha-Stim uses a specific waveform to regulate these signals so that they are within a more healthy range. Via the earclips, this signal can be transmitted directly to the brain, the control centre of the CNS. This enables symptoms to be targeted quickly and effectively.
Treatment usually takes about 20 minutes and can be carried out comfortably at home. Given that the results are cumulative, it is recommended that treatment is carried out once a day until a significant improvement in symptoms has occurred. Afterwards, maintenance treatments can be done 2 or 3 times per week, or whenever they are needed.
Since the Alpha-Stim AID is so portable and convenient to use, it can even be used outside of the home. Treatments can easily be fitted in to a busy lifestyle and can be carried out at the same time as doing everyday jobs around the home.
The device has been cleared by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the United States and its safety and efficacy have been confirmed by more than 100 independent studies. These studies have shown the Alpha-Stim’s effectiveness in ameliorating symptoms of anxiety and depression. Scientific research has also demonstrated the device’s ability to help improve the quality of sleep and the duration of sleep time.
How have people benefitted from this therapy?
Many people have benefitted from the regulating effect of the Alpha-Stim AID and have found that it produces a significant reduction in their symptoms of anxiety, depression and insomnia. The results can be experienced both in the short term and in the long term. These are a few quotes from Alpha-Stim users describing their experience with the device:
“I definitely felt relaxed during the session, a little daydreamy even. The calm but alert feeling of my mellow mood continued for several hours. The weather was dreary all afternoon, yet I felt happier than in recent days. I continued the trial at home and, after three days, noticed I was calmer and felt more upbeat. It’s great to know there’s an alternative to prescription drugs for SAD, and unrelated conditions, with no side-effects.” S Hamilton
“This machine has saved my life. Sounds dramatic I know, but true. After years of anti-depressants, counselling and a fortune spent on alternative therapies I was desperately searching the net for help. I came upon the Alpha-Stim quite by accident, had never heard of it and only decided to ‘give it a go’ because I knew that I could return it if it didn’t work, or pay monthly if it did.” Chris
“I have had the Alpha Stim machine for many years now, It is the most WONDERFUL gadget. It has made my terrible insomnia a thing of the past. I wish every sufferer knew about it!” C Cartwright
Is the therapy cost-effective?
Treatment with the Alpha-Stim has been shown to be an economical therapy by scientific trials. One study analysed the efficacy of cranial electrotherapy stimulation using the Alpha-Stim on patients with Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD). The participants each received 60 minutes of CES treatment per day for 6-12 weeks and their anxiety levels were measured using the GAD-7 scale.
Out of 161 participants, 44.7% were in remission after 12 weeks and 47.8% were in remission after 24 weeks. Given that an improvement in symptoms was still clearly evident at 24 weeks, it was shown that the benefits of the Alpha-Stim’s neuromodulation can last for several weeks after treatment has stopped.
It was calculated that CES had provided a saving of £540.88 for each patient. This meant that treatment with the Alpha-Stim was cheaper than providing individual Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT).
Evidently, treatment with the Alpha-Stim is not only safe and effective, but it is also an economical method of combating the symptoms of anxiety, depression and insomnia.
