How does Alpha-Stim work for anxiety relief?

Every single mood and emotion you experience – including anxiety – is controlled by electrochemical signals in your brain. The medical profession primarily relies on drugs for anxiety treatment, to manipulate those electrochemical signals, but prescription medications are not the only path to relief. What if treatment focused on the electro part of electrochemical, instead of the chemical? What if there was a safe and drug-free anxiety therapy that changed your brain’s electrical and electrochemical signals? That is not just wishful thinking, Cranial electrotherapy stimulation (CES) does just that – drug-free anxiety treatment using only electrical stimulation.

Increasingly, medical experts recognize the Alpha-Stim CES device as an effective, anxiety treatment without medication and without the risk of addiction.

We use a mild microcurrent similar to the type and amount of electrical activity naturally occurring in your brain to synchronize brain areas. The microcurrent is tiny, just millionths of an ampere, and so gentle that most people don’t even feel it. The device transmits a unique, patented waveform through small clips on your earlobes that send a mild current through the brain, modulating specific groups of nerve cells. This leads to significant anxiety relief, and mood normalization.

Many patients develop tolerance to medication – meaning they need to increase the dose they take to continue to get the same effect. Unlike drugs, there’s no way to develop a “tolerance” for CES, so there’s never a need to increase dosages. The benefits of CES technology are cumulative. Each treatment builds on the progress of the last. Over time, as you experience longer and longer periods of relief from anxiety, you may find you need to use the Alpha-Stim less frequently after the first few 2-3 weeks of treatment.

But don’t just take our word for it, check out the clinical research studies that back it up.

How do I know if I have anxiety?

Anxiety symptoms include:

  • Nervousness or restlessness
  • A foreboding feeling of danger or doom
  • Increased heart rate
  • Hyperventilation (rapid breathing)
  • Excessive sweating
  • Shaking or trembling
  • Low energy and weak feeling

If left untreated, chronic anxiety can have a negative impact on both your mental and physical health. Physical problems that can result from anxiety include:

  • Stomach pain and digestive issues
  • Headaches
  • Weakness and fatigue
  • Shortness of breath
  • Sleep issues
  • Increased heart rate
  • Sweating
  • Trembling or shaking
  • Body aches and pains

There is no shame in seeking help for your anxiety. Attempting to “push through” anxiety or handle it on your own can cause more harm than good. Alpha-Stim brings long lasting and often immediate relief from anxious feelings, and even panic attacks. You don’t have to suffer from the short- or long-term effects of anxiety — helps is available.

What works best to relieve anxiety?

Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation (CES)

Cranial electrotherapy stimulation (CES) is a form of neurostimulation recognized by the FDA for anxiety treatment. Alpha-Stim® AID is a noninvasive CES prescription medical device about the size of a smartphone that applies a pulsed, current of up to 500 microamperes (μA) transcutaneously to the head via electrodes placed on the earlobes. The Alpha-Stim electromedical device works by transmitting a unique, patented waveform to modulate the cells’ signals to return to normal functioning—significantly reducing anxiety, without the the risk of addiction or lasting side effects associated with medications.

The Alpha-Stim AID comes with everything you need to begin your anxiety treatment. A prescription from a licensed healthcare professional is required. Talk with your practitionaer or consult with a telehealth group about getting a CES prescription today and you can start to feel better within days.

Medications

In cases where home remedies and therapy prove ineffective, medication may be prescribed for anxiety relief. Some medications you may be familiar with are anxiolytics such as Xanax, Valium, Ativan and antidepressants like Prozac, Paxil or Zoloft. While these medications may provide relief, they also come with unpleasant and potentially serious side effects and are habit-forming in the long run.

There are reasons people are reluctant to take anti-anxiety medications like, benzodiazepines, buspirone, hydroxyzine, and beta-blockers – the side effects alone are cause for concern.

Anxiety treatment comparison of prescription drugs vs Alpha-Stim

Our surveys show that patients using Alpha-Stim for the treatment of anxiety report greater relief from anxiety than patients taking drugs. Our clinical trials have shown better results than medication and without side effects.

What are the side effects of anti-anxiety drugs?

  • Nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea
  • Nervousness or restlessness
  • Insomnia, drowsiness, fatigue or nightmares
  • Dizziness or confusion
  • Headache, dry mouth, or blurred vision
  • Reduced sexual desire
  • Weight gain or loss

Anti-anxiety drugs can be harmful, but there is another solution. If you want drug-free anxiety relief that can help you reclaim your confidence and feel like yourself again, Alpha-Stim just might be your best solution.

Therapy

For some, therapy may be an effective tool to relieve anxiety. Therapy, unlike medication, may go beyond treating anxiety symptoms and help you get to the root of the problem. Additionally, given the diversity of therapy methods, your therapy experience can be tailored to suit your individual needs.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is one well-recognized method for treating anxiety disorder. CBT focuses on the relationship between thoughts and behaviors and how they relate to anxiety triggers. For generalized anxiety, other therapies include biofeedback, neurofeedback, hypnosis, art and interpersonal therapy.

Therapies can also be combined – both with other therapies and with other treatment options. Over time therapy can provide an avenue towards anxiety relief.

Natural Remedies

Home remedies for anxiety, like chamomile tea, rhodiola rosea, valerian root and other herbal supplements, mindfulness meditation, deep breathing and guided imagery may help ease anxious thoughts and mild anxiety. These complementary techniques can help in reducing anxiety symptoms, but these may not be enough to treat chronic anxiety and they are not a replacement for professional help.

Frequently asked questions about anxiety

I feel so stressed and anxious lately, with all that’s happening in the world. Is this normal?

Yes – it’s completely normal to feel overwhelmed and stressed right now. While everyone experiences stress differently, you may notice the following symptoms:

  • Sadness, irritability, or anger
  • Inability to concentrate or be productive
  • Tension headaches, jaw clenching, teeth grinding
  • Low energy levels; feeling tired or weak
  • Difficulty sleeping

But just because stress is a normal reaction in a time of crisis, it doesn’t mean it is good for you. Chronic stress goes hand in hand with anxiety, depression, and disrupted sleep – and can even have an adverse effect on your immunity. So it’s essential to do everything you can to manage your stress levels right now.

I’ve been trying to relax but it’s not working. What specific steps can I take to feel less anxious?

Finding a sense of calm in the midst of a pandemic is easier said than done! Fortunately, there are concrete steps you can take to help mitigate your stress.  The Cleveland Clinic recommends the following:

  1. Exercise regularly – Even without a gym membership, you can stay active. Try going for a walk, doing some stretches, or looking for online workout classes. There are no rules, just get moving!
  2. Eat a healthy diet – Try to avoid emotional eating, and be sure to have healthy snacks on hand to keep your blood sugar stable
  3. Take a break – We all have our limits. Be sure to take breaks from the things that are draining you: the news, social media, work, or anything else.
  4. Connect with people – Social distancing doesn’t mean complete isolation. You can still text, call, email, or video chat with those you love.
  5. Get adequate rest – Do everything you can to ensure a good nights’ sleep. Avoid excess alcohol and caffeine, and try to establish a calming nighttime routing.

How do I know the difference between a normal level of worry and an anxiety disorder?

With so much to worry about right now, it can be difficult to know where the line is drawn between worry and anxiety. Psychology Today offers an outline of ten traits the distinguish the two, including the following:

  • Worry tends to be about a specific concern (for example, safely going to the grocery store right now), where anxiety is more general and vague (thinking about the spread of the virus in general)
  • Worry often leads to attempts to problem-solve (wearing a mask and bringing hand sanitizer), while anxiety’s vagueness makes problem-solving more difficult (the virus is spreading and I can’t do anything)
  • Worry doesn’t prevent you from working (you are able to turn off the thoughts long enough to complete tasks) while anxiety does (you are too consumed by thoughts to get anything done.)

If you suspect that you are struggling with anxiety, it’s important to take steps to manage it as soon as possible. The good news is, you don’t have to resort to medications to feel better!

I’m working from home and spending more time than ever before with my entire family. I love them, but I am so overwhelmed. How can I practice self-care?

No matter how much you love and enjoy your family, it can be an enormous adjustment to suddenly spend so much time with them in close quarters. You may be juggling your regular job (or the stress of having been laid off) on top of the pressures of helping your children with their schoolwork. And then there are the dreaded cries of “I’m bored!”

But it’s essential to make yourself a priority – now more than ever before. If you don’t tend to your own mental health, you will not be able to be your best for your family. Try to carve out time for yourself – even if it is just an extra-long shower – and remind yourself that this is not the time to be your most productive.

Maintaining your mental health is a key component to self-care. If you are feeling anxious, stressed, or depressed, it’s essential to address those issues as soon as possible. You can do that in the comfort of your own home with Alpha-Stim!
