Alpha-Stim wants to treat your pain without addictive drugsInterview by Todd Cochrane of Geek News Central.Managing chronic pain can be difficult, especially with the possibility of addiction to drugs. Alpha-Stim uses electrotherapy to treat pain and more.While our medical industry tends to try and solve problems with drugs, there can be many other ways to solve the same problem. For example, many people are incapable of taking medication for insomnia because of work obligations. There is also the possibility of side effects, like more serious health conditions or even addiction. To help overcome these issues is Alpha-Stim.How does Alpha-Stim work?Rather than medication, the Alpha-Stim device works by using electrical impulses. The reasoning behind the method is that 98 percent of the human nervous system is electrical, not chemical. By using the cranial electrotherapy stimulation (CES) device, people have the potential to treat anxiety, depression, insomnia, and physical pain.The device is in two pieces: the control pack and the ear clips. Together, they look like an MP3 player and earbuds. While the most common usage will be in the privacy of your home, if you were to use it in public, you’ll look like you’re just listening to music. A session takes 20 minutes and involves incredibly low power – so small that most people never consciously feel it.Why choose Alpha-Stim?While there are other entrants in the personal electrotherapy market, most are not backed by empirical evidence. Alpha-Stim, on the other hand, is. The company provides various studies of the technology showing how it can be effective for various pain management scenarios, as well as insomnia and depression.It is important to note that our staff have not tested the device and cannot speak to personal experiences with it. However, published scientific and clinical studies certainly help alleviate some of the concerns generated by late-night infomercial products making unbelievable claims.Alpha-Stim has two models available ranging from $795 to $1195.
