As a Service Member or Veteran, you know that military duty can change your life in a positive way – but it can also take a steep toll on you physically, mentally and emotionally. Whether or not you have deployed or seen combat, transitioning to civilian life comes with unique difficulties, especially if you’re battling with symptoms of PTSD, such as insomnia, anxiety, and depression.

Many Service Members are hesitant to ask for help, for fear that they’ll be prescribed a variety of medications – paired with an onslaught of side effects – with no certainty of actually feeling better. What if there was an answer that didn’t change who you are as a person, or how you interact with your loved ones or chain of command? What if you could treat it all at once?

Alpha-Stim is a handheld, prescription medical device that is FDA cleared to treat pain, anxiety, insomnia, and depression. It can help you feel like you again, with no nasty side effects and no risk of addiction. Just imagine being able to do your daily activities without anything slowing you down or getting in your way.

What Service Members & Veterans Are Saying…

“Our hospitals are doing some really exciting things to combat chronic pain and take care of our Veterans. There are VA hospitals that are using Alpha-Stim devices to treat pain and depression. That’s only going to continue and keep getting better. And we are getting there.” – Robert McDonald, VA Secretary

“It was like it just melted the anxiety away. I could not believe the relief. How many times have I dealt with the anxiety because I didn’t want to take the drugs? Alpha-Stim allows me to fix my problem without stopping life. Life still goes on. To have a solution to the problem that allows me to go on about my life without any adverse effects is incredible.” – Dakota Meyer, US Marine and Medal of Honor recipient

“In the wartime theaters of both Iraq and Afghanistan… Alpha-Stim CES was the single most effective form of treatment our Combat Stress Control Teams were able to provide for Service Members in our care. – COL (Ret) Kathy T. Platoni, PsyD

“I experienced the worst depression I have ever felt. I never have had depression until now. It’s the worst feeling ever. Makes the days go by so much slower. I went to my doctor, hoping for medicine. Instead he let me try Alpha-Stim. This product ended up being a life changer! It is awesome! Although I am only on day three, I look forward to… this product.” – Angie Lamborghini, US Military Service Member

Alpha-Stim changed my life, for the first time in 20 years I am beginning to be reintroduced and remembering this person named Glenn, myself. I have went from 12 medications down to 4. Chronic pain, anxiety, and depression will change you into a stranger and it also affects your family, friends and relationships both personal and professionally. These medical conditions have led me to make many bad decisions that cost money and face. I am so happy to wake up every morning and not have the initial thought consume me of OMG what’s going to happen to me today, or wonder how long will it take for the vomiting to began due to the pain. As guys, we’re told all of our lives to “Rub some dirt on it, it will get better”. Simply put, I didn’t have any more dirt. I had run out, period. I learned about Alpha-Stim from my VA physician. It had been my prayer for some time Lord please put someone or something into my path to help me with my medical problems. And bingo he answered. I want to get the word out to anyone who will listen about the change in my life that the Alpha-Stim can change your life. Thank You again! – Glenn Pearrow, Lafayette, LA

“The Alpha-Stim has changed my life: after a decade of debilitating pain, I can walk, sleep, and function again.” – Captain Justin Powers, US Military Veteran, Minnesota

I’d like to report that I am delighted with Alpha-Stim! I have taken control of my anxiety levels, and there has been a noticeable difference in my well-being since I started using it. – Lieutenant Commander SA Reese, MSC, MPH, REHS, US Military veteran, Maryland

“I personally plan to utilize the Alpha-Stim product as often as possible. I would just like to tell anyone with chronic pain problems to try this machine. It really works.” – Howard Gulledge, Specialist, United States Army

Survey Shows Military Service Members Feel Better with Alpha-Stim Than with Drugs

How It Works

Pain, mood conditions (like 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 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 such as anxiety and depression, and experience better sleep.

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.
