What is Alpha-Stim?

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 waveform passes between two electrodes that you clip on to your earlobes, providing depression treatment without the use of medication by sending a signal to your brain. You are able to set the power level to fit your comfort and many are not able to feel the electrical current at all.

Treatment can be done in the comfort of your own home or while at work and 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 2-3 times per week.

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

All of these can lead to serious consequences.

Is there hope? 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.

To understand how Alpha-Stim works, remember that your brain is one big electrical circuit board. Alpha-Stim uses a unique, patented waveform proven to restore balance to your mind and body. It is the most researched and proven CES device.

The waveform is transmitted through small clips that attach to your earlobes. They send a microcurrent through the brainstem, targeting certain groups of nerve cells. It is non-invasive, not at all painful, and you can use it in the comfort and privacy of your own home.

How It Works

Your moods and emotions 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, you can safely and effectively improve your mood and experience better sleep.

By wearing earclips for 20-60 minutes per day, most users notice some improvement after just 1-3 weeks of depression treatment. Alpha-Stim’s effect is cumulative, meaning each therapy session is potentially more and more effective—so it won’t lose its effect over time, as with many medications.

Alpha-Stim electrotherapy for depresssion 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.

What people are saying about Alpha-Stim…

Our hospitals are doing some really exciting things to combat chronic pain and take care of our veterans. There are VA hospitals that are using alpha-stimulation devices to treat pain and depression. That’s only going to continue and keep getting better. And we are getting there.

 

Robert McDonald, VA Secretary

I have suffered from depression, anxiety and insomnia for several years. I have tried so many different medication combinations with no luck. My doctor borrowed an associate’s Alpha-Stim, asking me to try it out for a month. At first I thought the sensation was a little strange but once I got used to it I could see a difference. I returned the machine and worked on getting one through the VA…Not. The 6 weeks I didn’t use the Alpha Stim I felt myself sliding back into the bad funk I had been in for years. Couldn’t wait any longer and purchased my own. Using it every evening for an hour… I feel some of my anxiety and depression is less severe. Of course, everything will never go away completely, however, Alpha-Stim has made life much more bearable. I highly recommend anyone with the same issues try it out.

Tonya Ziegler

Alpha-Stim has helped me immeasurably; my mood is balanced, and I don’t know what I would have done without it.

Nabil DriefEngland

I suffered from mental fatigue that lead to depression for 8 years. I went to every kind of doctor available, but found no working treatment. When I was recommended the Alpha-Stim treatment, I thought it was going to be another big waste of money and believed it would not work. I was wrong. I now am not hindered mentally and have started living my life to the fullest. This device has been one of the biggest blessings in my life.

Griffin McGinley

Alpha-Stim® is a lifesaver for my daughter. We found out about it from a veteran sitting next to us on an airplane. This is the first and only approach to my daughter’s stress, anxiety, insomnia and depression that works. She has tried meds. She has tried therapy. She has tried EMDR training. No luck. She felt the effects of Alpha-Stim immediately. Her anxiety goes down, and she sleeps better. Thank you for creating such a powerful tool to help my baby girl. Worth every penny.

Rachel Rubinger Pelc

After 3 months, I feel like a new person. I would recommend Alpha-Stim to anyone suffering from depression or anxiety.

Laine DowningTexas

Since the Pentagon attack on September 11, 2001, I’ve suffered from anxiety, depression, and insomnia that have made it difficult to function. I now use Alpha-Stim daily, and my life has definitely become more manageable.

Dan SweetUS Military veteranVirginia

It would seem as if the Alpha-Stim is our missing link. We have tried so much to lift Leigha’s 2 year depression which has interfered with her having any pleasure in her life. We have great hope & have already had a massive change on her symptoms of sleeplessness, anxiety & depression. Even if this is just a reprieve, we cannot thank you enough for developing such an amazing technology! Many thanks!

Mother of 17-year-old daughter with insomnia, anxiety, and depression

Alpha-Stim changed my life, for the first time in 20 years I am beginning to be reintroduced and remembering this person named Glenn, myself. I have went from 12 medications down to 4. Chronic pain, anxiety, and depression will change you into a stranger and it also affects your family, friends and relationships both personal and professionally. These medical conditions have led me to make many bad decisions that cost money and face. I am so happy to wake up every morning and not have the initial thought consume me of OMG what’s going to happen to me today, or wonder how long will it take for the vomiting to began due to the pain. As guys, we’re told all of our lives to “Rub some dirt on it, it will get better”. Simply put, I didn’t have any more dirt. I had run out, period. I learned about Alpha-Stim from my VA physician. It had been my prayer for some time Lord please put someone or something into my path to help me with my medical problems. And bingo he answered. I want to get the word out to anyone who will listen about the change in my life that the Alpha-Stim can change your life. Thank You again!

Glenn Pearrow, Lafayette, LA

I have been using the Alpha-Stim for treatment of insomnia and depression.  The change in how I feel is amazing; it is like a miracle.
