What to expect
While the Alpha-Stim AID is significantly effective when it is used correctly for 9 out of 10 people who use it, it will not work for everyone. If the Alpha-Stim AID is not working well for you contact your health care practitioner, your local authorized Alpha-Stim distributor or EPI for technical support. Anxiety reduction is usually experienced during a single treatment, but may be experienced hours after treatment.
Insomnia is usually improved after the initial treatment but may take 3 weeks. Most people can use it at bedtime and when awakened during the night. However, some people find they must conduct their 20 – 60 minute Alpha-Stim CES treatment at least 3 hours before going to bed because a CES treatment may interfere with sleep. It may also be used in the morning to promote better sleeping at night.
Depression typically takes 3 weeks or more of daily treatment to experience significant improvement, but may take considerably longer. After the condition is under control, use of Alpha-Stim 2 – 3 times per week or less is usually sufficient to maintain good results.
Following treatment, there are usually no physical limitations imposed so most users can resume normal activities immediately. Some users may have a response that may affect their ability to perform potentially hazardous tasks, such as operating a motor vehicle or heavy machinery for up to several hours after treatment.
At present, there are over 150 research studies on using Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation in humans and more than 30 animal studies. No significant lasting side effects have been reported. Occasional headache, discomfort or skin irritation under the electrodes or lightheadedness may occur. If a heavy feeling occurs, continue treatment until at least 2 minutes after it gives way to a light feeling. These are all mild, self-limiting reactions.
