Fiona Golfar, former Editor at Large of Vogue magazine, is no stranger to the impact that mental illness can have on one’s life. Not only does she struggle with her own anxiety and depression, but her husband suffers from the latter as well – and her father ultimately died from untreated depression after a failed suicide attempt left his organs irreparably damaged.

Golfar tried various treatments for her depression over the years, including medications, but did not like the idea of taking drugs. So when her doctor recommended Alpha-Stim®, a medical device that recently made headlines in an NHS trial for its effectiveness at treating anxiety, she was willing to give it a try.

“When I started using the Alpha-Stim, I wanted it to work so much, I wasn’t sure if I was just imagining the effects. Luckily, I was wrong. I felt so much better so swiftly. Almost immediately, I noticed the prickle of anxiety diminish. The dark, black depression hasn’t returned,” says Golfar, in a feature for The Daily Mail.

Golfar’s results bolster the findings of over 100 clinical research studies: Alpha-Stim works, and it works well. It is an FDA cleared, handheld medical device that uses a modality called cranial electrotherapy stimulation (CES) to restore balance to the brain. A patented electrical waveform is painlessly delivered through two earclip electrodes in treatments as brief as 20 minutes.

People who use medications often find that they need to increase their dosages over time to maintain the same level of effectiveness. With Alpha-Stim, on the other hand, results are cumulative – treatments become more and more effective over time, and many people find that they can reduce the frequency of use as they continue to feel better. And not only is Alpha-Stim more effective than medications, but it actually costs less, too.

Since Alpha-Stim is not a drug, there is no risk of addiction, lasting side effects, or withdrawal. It can safely be used in conjunction with other treatment modalities, and there is no risk of overuse. And because we understand that finding the right treatment for depression and anxiety can be daunting, you can try Alpha-Stim for 30 days – if it doesn’t work for you, you can return it.

Depression and anxiety can have an enormous impact on your life. It may feel as thought your only options are to continue to suffer, or to accept the scary side effects that come hand in hand with medications. But there is another way: there is Alpha-Stim. And in the words of Golfar, Alpha-Stim provides “something that no amount of money can buy: peace of mind.”
