Relief your anxiety with Alpha-StimAnxiety treatment

Maybe your chest feels tight or you get sharp chest pains, your thoughts are going a million miles an hour, your stomach is in knots, or you’re nauseous and can’t eat. Maybe you don’t feel like you’re “allowed” to stop worrying. Maybe you don’t know how to stop. 

You are not alone. 

What you’re experiencing isn’t just normal worry. It’s anxiety, an excessive and persistent feeling of worry, nervousness, or panic about everyday activities. Whether it’s picking up your child from school, preparing for a big interview, or even revisiting painful memories, your anxiety can get in the way of your daily life, and might make you feel like you’re stuck in a loop. But you do have options when it comes to treatment.

Anxiety and the brain

Anxiety, like any emotion, happens in your brain. The brain is composed of nerve cells, or neurons, that communicate to each other using electrochemical (both electrical and chemical) signals. This electrochemical communication is what leads to thoughts, actions, and emotions, including anxiety.

When it comes to anxiety, the brain regions responsible for handling anxiety are overly-sensitive to stress. This region may even increase in size in people with anxiety. This hypersensitivity leads to imbalances in both the electrical and chemical part of the brain’s signals. In particular, the levels of a chemical called serotonin (which regulates sleep and mood) decrease. This makes it increasingly easy to become anxious, and increasingly hard to calm down. It’s a vicious cycle, a downward spiral.

Exploring anxiety treatments

Anxiety medications

Medications have long been a mainstay in anxiety treatment. While there are a variety of medications prescribed for anxiety, almost all of them target the same thing: the ‘chemical’ part of the brain’s electrochemical signaling. By balancing the level of chemicals like serotonin, medications help to ease anxiety symptoms. 

Taken regularly, some medications (especially benzodiazepines) can lead to dependence. Dependence also means that when you stop using the medication, your body goes into withdrawal.

What to do if medications aren’t for you

 Anxiety relief without medication is possible. Medications are certainly an effective anxiety treatment for some people, but not everyone. You may find that medications just aren’t working, no matter how many different kinds you and your doctor try. Or, you may experience lots of side effects. Maybe you don’t want to go on medications in the first place. If this is the case, you may want to consider an alternative prescription: a medical device called Alpha-Stim.

Alpha-Stim anxiety treatment

Alpha-stim is a device that uses small electrical currents to stimulate certain brain regions.  These currents mimic the electrical activity naturally occurring in the brain, which in turn regulates the electrical part of the brain’s electrochemical signals. This is how Alpha-Stim helps you get to a place of calm.

The whole process is called cranial electrotherapy stimulation (CES), and it starts working in just one, 20-minute session. Better yet, the effects of Alpha-Stim build on the progress of the last session. This is how Alpha-Stim helps users like Dakota Meyer achieve increased levels of anxiety relief over time. And, because CES does not involve any chemicals, Alpha-Stim users are free from the worry of dependence and withdrawal.

Decrease Anxiety by 94% with Long Term Effectiveness

Fast, safe, proven relief 

In clinical trials, patients reported an average of 61% less anxiety immediately after using the CES therapy. After 5 weeks, that average was 94%. Additionally, patients using Alpha-Stim for the treatment reported greater relief from anxiety than patients taking drugs, all without side effects.
