On last night’s episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Denise Richards underwent surgery to repair a rare double hernia called femoral hernia that was caused by heavy lifting that adds a lot of stress on the body. The doctor told Richards that it is extremely dangerous, and she had to have surgery right away. Richards, when speaking to her husband, said that she is in a lot of pain even with her high pain tolerance. After her surgery, once they made it back to their hotel room, Aaron Phypers asked Richards if she packed her Alpha-Stim in order to help relieve her post-op pain after the surgery. Phypers clipped the device on Richards ears while saying, “This is going to help stimulate Alpha frequency.”

There are several things you can do to help ease your anxiety, insomnia, and depression during difficult times. Alpha-Stim® is an FDA cleared cranial electrotherapy stimulation (CES) device that is clinically proven to safely and effectively treat anxiety and depression, as well as the insomnia that can often accompany them. A tiny current of electricity is passed through two electrodes that clip onto your earlobes, restoring balance to your brainwaves and making you feel better – fast. Nine out of ten users experience clinically significant relief from their anxiety, with results that are long lasting and often immediate. Treatments with Alpha-Stim are painless and take just 20 minutes to conduct in the comfort of your own home.

Alpha-Stim is also a fast, safe, and effective way to treat acute, post-traumatic, and chronic pain. It is an FDA cleared, handheld medical device – not a drug – that delivers long-lasting and often immediate relief from all types of pain. Two handheld Smart Probes transmit a tiny current of electricity directly to the site of your pain, in a pain-free modality known as microcurrent electrical therapy (MET.) A full treatment takes just minutes to conduct.

Backed by more than 100 clinical studies, Alpha-Stim is safe to use in conjunction with other treatment modalities (in case you’re already taking anxiety medications or antidepressants), and is safe for use on children and aging adults, as well. The beauty of Alpha-Stim is that you can use it whenever you encounter high-stress periods in your life. Unlike with medications, there is no potential risk from starting or stopping treatments suddenly. You can use Alpha-Stim as often as you need to, without risk of overuse – and you can stop treatments whenever you want, with no risk of withdrawal. Denise Richards is just one of thousands that find this drug-free, non-invasive way to aid mental stressors extremely beneficial to their overall wellness.
