What is depression?

Sadness affects everyone from time to time. The differences between sadness and depression involve duration and intensity. Depression means intense sadness – including helplessness, hopelessness, and worthlessness – that lasts for several days to weeks.

Left untreated, depression affects your body, emotions, and thoughts. It can lead to:

  • Sexual side effects
  • Risky behaviors such as drug or alcohol abuse
  • Ruined relationships
  • Problems at work
  • Difficulty overcoming serious illnesses
  • Interrupted eating habits
  • Distortion of the way you see yourself and others
  • Total loss of interest in your life

I’ve never had depression before, but my mood has been really low lately. How do I know if I am depressed or if I have depression?

Symptoms of depression vary from person to person, but some of common signs of depression include:

  • Feeling helpless or hopeless
  • Persistent feelings of sadness or emptiness
  • Changes in appetite or loss of appetite
  • Anger/irritability
  • Low energy, fatigue and/or insomnia
  • Self-loathing
  • Unexplained aches and pains
  • Difficulty concentrating or making decision
  • Loss of interest in things you once enjoyed

There is no shame in struggling with depression. It does not mean you are weak or are not handling the pandemic well. The sooner you identify it and begin treatment, the sooner you can feel better.

Are there depression treatments that don’t include drugs?

One of the most effective drug-free, non-addictive depression treatments is the Alpha-Stim. It is a small, FDA cleared, prescription device that uses cranial electrotherapy stimulation (CES) to treat depression.

What is Alpha-Stim and how does it work to treat depression?

Mood conditions like depression are controlled through electrochemical signals in your brain. When these signals aren’t functioning properly, the hormones and neurotransmitters that regulate your emotions can become unbalanced. By modulating the brain’s electrochemical signals, Alpha-Stim can safely and effectively improve your mood.

The Alpha-Stim® AID is a small, FDA cleared, prescription device that uses cranial electrotherapy stimulation (CES) to alleviate depression. The technology is based on an exclusive patented waveform that’s the most researched and proven of its kind in CES devices.

The device uses a unique, patented electrical waveform to modulate the cells’ signals to return to normal functioning. The waveform passes between two electrodes that you clip on to your earlobes, providing depression treatment without the use of medication by sending a specific electrical signal to your brain. You are able to set the current level to fit your comfort and many are not able to feel the electrical current at all.

It is non-invasive, not painful, and you can use it in the comfort and privacy of your own home. Treatment takes just 20 minutes to an hour per day. Alpha-Stim is effective over the long- and short-term, and over time, you can decrease treatments to every other day, then just 1-3 times per week.

Many people experience significant relief after a single treatment. With continued use, the effects of the Alpha-Stim brain stimulation device can be even greater, increasing cumulatively over time.

Alpha-Stim for depression is designed to help you avoid or reduce the need for medications, but it is safe to use in conjunction with prescriptions or over-the-counter medications.

Depression & Coronavirus

Can coronavirus make depression worse?

Whether or not you’ve struggled with depression in the past, the coronavirus pandemic may heighten your symptoms. People who are familiar with depression may notice their telltale signs amplifying, while people who have never experienced it before can start to feel the weight of depression. It’s not your fault, and you don’t have to suffer alone.

Experts are calling the COVID-19 crisis the “perfect storm” of risks for depression.[1] We’re suddenly being faced with grief and loss; social isolation; financial stress; and fears about the future, all at once. It is an overwhelming amount of distress for our brains to process. Struggling with depression does not mean that you are weak – it means that you are human.

One of the biggest changes that many of us are experiencing right now is the sense of isolation from our social circles. The support that we receive from our social networks can be a crucial element in maintaining our mental health – so be sure to keep in touch with friends and family, even while practicing social distancing. Call, text, email, video chat – whatever it takes.

And remember, there is a way to feel better. With Alpha-Stim, you
