We at EPI recently received a heartfelt letter from a Veteran, recounting her struggles with pain, anxiety, insomnia, and depression that resulted from a combat-related injury. Though it is heartbreaking to know that she suffered for so long, we are elated to hear that she has found relief with Alpha-Stim®. In her own words, here is her story.
My name is Katjia Bagnell and I’m an American Veteran of foreign and American wars. I was injured and I have been in pain from the top of my head to the bottom of my toes. For several years, I’ve been in and out of wheelchairs and walkers.
I have severe bilateral damage to my SI joints, hips, and pelvic region. I have cervical, shoulder, and cranial damage, and traumatic brain injury. I have seizures. I have fatigue, depression, panic disorder, and anxiety disorder.
I have pain constantly – 24/7.
At 49 years old, I went to my doctor. It was either put a bullet in my head or go on pain medication after refusing it for a very long time. And I told her I wanted to go on pain medication.
She came up with the Alpha-Stim M as a solution. Within three weeks, I was out of the wheelchair. I’m sleeping through the night. I can manage the pain. I feel like I have enough energy to walk around and not feel like I’m dying.
For my panic disorder and my anxiety disorder, which I was on [medication] for, I no longer take the medication.
I plan on getting off the antidepressants when I see my psychiatrist, as my depression has disappeared. Due to the Alpha-Stim, my affect has improved 100% and my pain that was over a 10 on a daily basis has gone down to zero.
I cannot say enough about the Alpha-Stim. It has changed my life. It has given me a new lease on life and a new outlook.
We are honored to have been able to bring life-changing results to Katjia, and all the other Veterans and Service Members who have discovered the benefits of Alpha-Stim.
But what is Alpha-Stim? It’s an FDA cleared medical device that is clinically proven to safely and effectively treat anxiety, insomnia, depression, and pain. A tiny current of electricity is transmitted through electrodes that clip onto your earlobes – a modality called cranial electrotherapy stimulation (CES.) The patented waveform of electricity restores balance to your brainwaves, relieving your anxiety, insomnia, and depression.
For pain, Alpha-Stim uses microcurrent electrical therapy (MET). Two handheld Smart Probes deliver relief directly to the site of your pain. Relief is long lasting and often immediate.
Since Alpha-Stim is not a drug, there is no risk of addiction or lasting side effects. Results are cumulative over time – the more you treat with Alpha-Stim, the better you’ll feel, and the less you’ll need it! Many people, like Katjia, find that they feel so good with Alpha-Stim, they can taper off of their medications (always check with your prescribing physician before making any changes to your medications.)
Alpha-Stim is backed by decades of experience and 140 clinical research studies. It is available at more than half of the nation’s VAs. Visit our Veterans and Service Members page, or call 1-800-FOR-PAIN and ask to speak to Government Services.
