For Sleep and Studying, This Veteran Finds Success with Alpha-Stim
Homework can be daunting on its own; anxiety and insomnia make it even more challenging.
It’s the start of a new school year, and that means a return to the demanding lifestyle of homework, studying, and sitting through long and intense exams. Coursework can be challenging enough on its own, to be sure – but for those who struggle with anxiety or insomnia, the long hours of studying and test-taking can seem daunting, if not downright impossible.
Ashley Russell-Gray, a Veteran and a student, was prescribed an Alpha-Stim® to help with her insomnia. Not only did Alpha-Stim help her to get better quality sleep, but it proved to be a vital tool for managing her anxiety and stress while she navigates her PA program:
I’ve found the Alpha-Stim very helpful. I use it every night to help me fall asleep, which really beats having to take sleeping medication all the time. I’ve been using it for sleep for almost a year and it has made a huge difference.
A few months ago, I started using Alpha-Stim while I study and take exams for PA school. I can’t begin to tell you how much of a difference it makes when I have to sit still for a 1-3 hour exam. Prior to using Alpha-Stim, I would have to get up, stretch, and reset at least 3 times during an exam [due to anxiety]. I just finished 10 final exams over the last week (ranging from 1.5-2.5 hours) and I sat straight through all of them while using the device.
Studying with Alpha-Stim is beneficial for decreasing [my] anxiety. Before Alpha-Stim, I would never have been able to achieve this level of sleep. It has been such an improvement to my overall quality of life.
The success that Ashley describes is what makes us so proud of what we do here. For decades, Alpha-Stim has been improving lives by safely and effectively treating anxiety, insomnia, and depression – and allowing people to do the things that matter the most to them.
Alpha-Stim is compact and easy to use in the comfort of your own home or while you study.
Alpha-Stim is an FDA cleared medical device. It delivers a tiny and painless current of electricity to the brain through two earclip electrodes, restoring balance to your brainwaves and making you feel better fast. The patented waveform is like no other; treatments take just 20 minutes, yet relief is long lasting and often immediate.
Alpha-Stim is compact, discreet, and easy to use in the comfort of your own home. Or, as Ashley discovered, you can wear it while performing a demanding or stressful task, such as studying or taking an exam, since it helps you to stay calm (please do not use Alpha-Stim while operating a motor vehicle.) The safety and effectiveness of Alpha-Stim is backed by decades of experience and more than 100 clinical research studies. Since it is not a drug, there is no risk of addiction or lasting side effects. And unlike with medications, the benefits are cumulative over time: the more you use it, the better you’ll feel, and the less you’ll need it.
Alpha-Stim is available at more than half of the nation’s VAs. Veterans and current Service Members, visit our website or call 1-800-FOR-PAIN and ask for Government Services to learn more. We are proud to offer special pricing for men and women in uniform; financing options are also available. You can even try Alpha-Stim for 30 days to see if it works well for you; if you don’t love it, you can return it.
