Alpha-Stim® AID is an FDA cleared, handheld medical device that is proven safe and effective for the treatment of anxiety, insomnia, and depression. The highly refined, rigorously tested, and patented waveform in Alpha-Stim electrotherapy device uses microcurrents (millionths of an ampere), which are transmitted into the brain in a precise configuration via ear-clip electrodes. The brain functions electrochemically and can be readily modulated by electrical intervention. Alpha-Stim impacts the electrochemical function of the brain to improve emotional and physiological states. It is designed to affect the activity of the subcortical brain structures known to regulate emotions as is demonstrated in fMRI studies. Treatments typically take 20 minutes and can be done in the comfort of your own home while doing normal, everyday activities. With Alpha-Stim, many people experience significant relief after a single treatment. With continued use, the effects of Alpha-Stim electrotherapy device can be even greater, increasing cumulatively over time as cell function become more readily modulated. While daily treatments are suggested until you have a noticeable decrease in symptoms, they can be done 2-3 times a week for maintenance or as needed. Alpha-Stim is supported by over 100 completed independent research studies and published reports that utilize some of the most rigorous, controlled clinical study methods. The Alpha-Stim electrotherapy device delivers lasting results for anxiety, depression, and insomnia without dangerous side effects, tolerance, or addiction. In 30+ years and clinical studies involving more than 8,800 people, Alpha-Stim users have reported no serious side effects.
Eighty-three percent (83%) of the active Alpha-Stim CES group reported a decrease in anxiety of ≥ 50% on the HAM-A from baseline to endpoint of study.
In a study of preoperative anxiety, Alpha-Stim recipients reported significantly less anxiety after one 20-minute application.
