A man uses his Alpha-StimDon’t let the stress of being a first responder wear you down

On too many days, you see things that nobody should see and can’t be unseen. Despite your bravery, strength and courage, even you are not immune to post traumatic stress.

Your job can take a toll on your physical and mental wellbeing. High levels of stress, physical demands, and inadequate or erratic sleep push your body and mind to the limit on a regular basis.

At some point, you’ll be glad to know that there is a safe, fast and effective way to normalize your mood or relieve your pain, without the worries of lasting side effects or risk of addiction.

Alpha-Stim® is an FDA cleared, handheld medical device that safely and effectively brings relief from anxiety, insomnia, and depression, as well as acute, post-traumatic, and chronic pain. It fits in the palm of your hand, and its earclips are as small as earbuds, making treatment easy, discreet and portable.

First responders: don't let the stress of your job wear you down

What people are saying…

The benefit can be described in one word: Stupendous! At the beginning of week three, friends and professional colleagues began noticing an improvement in my disposition, evidenced by the unconscious whistling of a tune, singing, and initiating humorous exchanges. What was most appreciated was the dramatic decrease in melancholia and stress. Even episodes of insomnia began to decrease. I had also begun experiencing an increase in energy levels as well as a clearer mind. – Dr. J.D. Rogers, former first responder

How it works

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, you can safely and effectively relieve pain, improve mood conditions, and experience better sleep.

Most people experience significant relief after a single treatment. The body accommodates to pharmaceutical drugs over time. This can never happen with Alpha-Stim! Alpha-Stim’s effect is cumulative, meaning each treatment is potentially more and more effective—and you can decrease use after time.

First responder study

First responders are already experiencing the Alpha-Stim difference. As part of a 6-week study, roughly 150 police officers, sheriff’s officers, and firefighters used Alpha-Stim to combat stress, and experienced a significant decrease in anxiety, insomnia, depression, pain, and stress.

Chief Richard Biehl of Dayton, Ohio acknowledges the immense stress that comes with being a police officer, and the importance of managing stress properly to avoid burnout, negative effects on mental and physical health, and poor decision-making on the job. “I can’t think of a more trying time to be in policing than in more of these recent years,” he says. “With all the complex roles for police officers dealing with arrest to domestic terrorism to active shooters.”

If you or others in your department are stressed and suffering from anxiety, insomnia, depression, or pain, Alpha-Stim can help. Backed by decades of experience and over 100 independent clinical research trials, we’ve proven time and time again that – just like you – we are experts at what we do.
