Dr. Jeffrey Marksberry, Chief Science & Clinical Officer for Electromedical Products International, Inc. (EPI), manufacturer of Alpha-Stim®, was recently a guest on an episode of Living Beyond 120. The podcast, which is co-hosted by Dr. Jeffrey Gladden, focuses on topics relating to longevity, health, and human performance – making Alpha-Stim and its impressive results a perfect topic of conversation.
In this episode of the podcast, Dr. Marksberry explains that Alpha-Stim is a handheld medical device with two main modalities: the treatment of anxiety, insomnia, and depression with cranial electrotherapy stimulation (CES), delivered to the brain through earclip electrodes; and the treatment of pain with two handheld Smart Probes using microcurrent electrical therapy (MET).
When podcast co-host Mark Young comments that it sounds frightening to run electricity through the brain, Dr. Marksberry points out that we all already have electricity in our brains. In fact, our nervous systems are 98% electrically induced.
Dr. Marksberry also addresses the fact that Alpha-Stim has been used and trusted by the military for over a decade, as well as at MD Anderson Cancer Center for pain, anxiety, insomnia, and depression in advanced cancer patients. Members of the Special Forces as well as athletes and musicians also use Alpha-Stim to perform at their best.
Dr. Gladden notes that he has experienced marked improvement in his own sleep and mental clarity since using Alpha-Stim, and he offers the device to patients at his clinic. Since Alpha-Stim is not a drug, it can be used safely in conjunction with other treatment modalities.
Living Beyond 120 aims to explore the potential of humans to live their longest, highest quality lives. It is fitting for Alpha-Stim to be a topic of discussion on the podcast; people have been discovering their best and fullest lives with the help of Alpha-Stim for decades.
