Make the most of your college years

You’ve worked hard to get into the college of your dreams, and you want to make the most of this opportunity. Between classes, homework, extracurriculars, and possibly even a job on the side to make ends meet, the demands placed on you are greater than ever before.

All of that pressure and stress can build up, making you feel exhausted, depleted, hopeless, and burned out. If you are struggling with anxiety or depression, you are not alone – half of all college students report having anxiety, with 30% experiencing difficulty with their schoolwork as a result. Yet even with 50% of students rating their mental health as “below average” or even “poor,” most do not seek help.

It’s important to know that there is no shame in having issues with stress, anxiety or depression when you are away at school; there is no shame in seeking treatment. It doesn’t mean that you aren’t cut out for success in college and beyond; it simply means that you are human.

You should also know that your options for relief are not limited to prescription drugs. Antidepressants and anxiety medications come with a list of scary side effects. Fortunately, there is another way: there is Alpha-Stim®.

Alpha-Stim is an FDA cleared, handheld medical device proven to safely and effectively treat anxiety, insomnia, depression, and pain. It uses a modality called cranial electrotherapy stimulation (CES), rather than drugs, to restore balance to the brain. There is no risk of addiction or lasting side effects.

College may be stressful, but it can also be one of the best experiences of your life. So, don’t let your anxiety or depression derail you from your goals. Don’t suffer in silence.

LET NOTHING STOP YOU.

Get Started

Fast, safe and easy-to-use

Alpha-Stim is portable – smaller than a standard cell phone – and delivers a mild, painless microcurrent of electricity through unobtrusive electrodes that clip onto your earlobes. Treatments are as brief as 20 minutes per day and can be conducted safely and easily in your dorm room, the library, or wherever you feel comfortable. You can use Alpha-Stim while you study or do homework, so there is no need to carve out time from your already jammed schedule.

Best of all, Alpha-Stim is backed by over 100 clinical research studies. Nine out of 10 users experience clinically significant relief with Alpha-Stim. And since results are cumulative, you’ll just keep feeling better over time.

IMMEDIATE PAIN RELIEF

In a study of severe pain patients, Alpha-Stim significantly reduced pain by an average of 71% after only 5 treatments.8

DECREASE ANXIETY

After 5 weeks of treatment with Alpha-Stim CES, participants
reported an average of 94% decrease in anxiety.2

GET BETTER SLEEP

The number of subjects rating their quality of sleep as poor dropped from 60% at the beginning of the study to 5%.3

LIFT DEPRESSION

After 6 weeks of depression treatment, Alpha-Stim users experienced 43% improvement.4

Alpha-Stim compared to medication

Your moods and emotions, including anxiety, insomnia and depression, 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 body and brain’s electrochemical signals, Alpha-Stim can safely and effectively relieve stress, anxiety and depression, and help you experience better sleep – without drugs!

Most people experience significant relief after a single treatment. Alpha-Stim’s effect is cumulative, meaning each treatment is potentially more and more effective—so it won’t lose its effect over time, as with many medications.

Risks of medications

One of the things that sets Alpha-Stim apart from medications is that its benefits accumulate over time. The more you use it, the less you will need to. This is in stark contrast to drugs, which often require ever-larger dosages to maintain the same effect. There is no risk of overuse, dependence, or withdrawal with Alpha-Stim. Side effects are minor and self-limiting, compared with the potential adverse effects of common medications.
