If you use Alpha-Stim® to treat pain, it’s possible that you will notice relief immediately. But if you’ve ordered your device to treat depression, anxiety, or insomnia, the results may not be instantaneous. Further, it can be difficult to quantify changes in your mental health – so how exactly will you know when your Alpha-Stim is working for you?
Alpha-Stim is a non-invasive, FDA cleared medical device that uses Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation (CES) to treat depression, anxiety, and insomnia. The microcurrent is delivered through Earclip Electrodes in sessions as short as 20 minutes per day. For pain, the Alpha-Stim M delivers Microcurrent Electrical Therapy (MET) through two unique handheld probes directly to the site of your pain.
Alpha-Stim technology has been proven in over 100 clinical research studies, and is effective for nine out of ten users. Since it is not a drug, there is no risk of addiction or lasting side effects with Alpha-Stim. And with a 30-day return policy and a 5-year warranty, you can find out for sure whether it’s right for you. But if you have been suffering from depression, anxiety, or insomnia, how will you know if and when your Alpha-Stim treatments are actually working?
Some people notice an improvement right away: “It worked from the first time I used it. It just relaxes my brain completely, reported user Genee Schock. Paul Schaum also experienced a sudden shift, saying “Without realizing it, my pain level went from ‘extreme’ to tolerable. My anger also went with the pain.”
In some cases, a loved one or significant other will notice a change before the patient does. “My partner was the one who noticed the sudden difference in my mental health and I was starting to sleep much better,” said Sarah Viengpraprok-Amin.
Mike Mansueto also observed a positive shift in his wife: “My wife has always struggled with anxiety and the 1st time she used the Alpha-Stim I saw something I’d never seen before. A complete calm. Love how it helps in just 20 minutes.”
One patient, who was using Alpha-Stim to treat his insomnia, was surprised to see his results reflected by his FitBit: the fitness tracker recorded improvements in sleep data before the patient himself had become aware of the change.
Here are some things that you may notice as your Alpha-Stim begins to work:
- Longer sleep duration
- Less irritability
- Fewer anxiety attacks
- Improved mood
- More frequent laughter
- Balanced mood
On top of these improvements, results can be profoundly life-changing; one veteran was even able to avoid having his legs amputated after using Alpha-Stim to treat his pain.
