Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation (CES) is a type of treatment in which the brain is stimulated by a tiny current of electricity, no more than 600 millionths of an ampere – so small that most users cannot even feel it. The FDA recognizes CES as a Class III device for the treatment of depression, anxiety, and insomnia, and research backs its efficacy at treating pain and stress disorders as well.
Just as there are multiple brands of antidepressants or other types of medications, there are also multiple brands of CES devices available to consumers. Alpha-Stim is one such brand – and the premium option at that.
While all CES devices transmit electricity to the brain, only Alpha-Stim offers a unique, patented waveform that has been rigorously tested and is backed by decades of success. There is, quite literally, no other device like it.
How does CES work?
Pain, mood conditions such as anxiety and depression, and insomnia are all controlled by your body’s central nervous system. The billions of individual cells that comprise the nervous system communicate every sensation by conducting electrochemical signals between the cells in your body and brain.
When this communication becomes disrupted, the body is thrown out of balance. The Alpha-Stim waveform modulates the brain cells’ signals to return to baseline, normal functioning—significantly reducing pain, anxiety, depression, or insomnia without medication.
Is CES right for me?
If you suffer from anxiety, insomnia, depression, or pain, Alpha-Stim can help. It is perfectly safe to use in conjunction with other treatment modalities – so if you are hesitant to discontinue any current medications, you don’t have to. But you may just find that Alpha-Stim is effective enough that you no longer need them.
Alpha-Stim is safe for use in people of all ages, from children and teens to the elderly. There is no risk of misuse or abuse, or addiction or withdrawal, making Alpha-Stim an ideal treatment option for just about anyone. It is a safe alternative to medications for people who are recovering from addiction, or anyone who prefers not to take drugs.
Treatments with Alpha-Stim are fast and easy, and conducted in the comfort of your own home. There is room for an Alpha-Stim treatment in even the busiest of schedules and the most hectic of lifestyles.
That said, Alpha-Stim should not be used by women who are pregnant, or by people who have pacemakers or other implantable devices.
Does CES work?
Quite simply: yes.
While CES may be getting more attention as of late, Alpha-Stim is actually not a “new” treatment at all. It has been changing lives for the better since 1981.
More than 100 clinical research studies have been conducted on the effectiveness of Alpha-Stim, and the results are nothing short of impressive. Whether it’s for anxiety, insomnia, depression, or pain, Alpha-Stim outshines other treatment modalities with its ability to make people feel better quickly, and without lasting side effects. A remarkable 90% of people who use Alpha-Stim experience clinically significant relief from their symptoms – results far superior to those of medications.
It may sound too good to be true, but we stand behind what we do. That’s why, if you don’t feel better after 30 days with Alpha-Stim, you can return it.
Do I need a prescription?
In the United States, a prescription is required for Alpha-Stim. In other countries, Alpha-Stim is available over the counter.
Will my insurance pay for Alpha-Stim?
Insurance coverage varies by policy. Durable medical equipment coverage is often required to obtain some level of reimbursement for Alpha-Stim devices. We do not bill private carriers but will assist you by providing a paid invoice and a sample Statement of Medical Necessity for your practitioner to complete. This statement is typically required by the insurance carrier if the device is covered. If you have a flex spending account (FSA) or health savings account (HSA), you may often use these to purchase an Alpha-Stim.
