Alpha-Stim®: An American Institute of Stress Certified Product
Absolutely nothing relieves stress, anxiety, depression, insomnia, and pain like the Alpha-Stim. Its therapeutic abilities have been acclaimed by healthcare professionals and patients worldwide and effectiveness has been repeatedly verified through more clinical studies than with any other device in its class.
How does the Alpha-Stim Work?
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.
The Alpha-Stim electrotherapy device works by transmitting a unique, patented electrical waveform to modulate the cells’ signals to return to baseline, normal functioning—significantly reducing pain, anxiety, depression, or insomnia without medication.
With Alpha-Stim, many people experience significant relief after a single treatment. With continued use, the effects of the Alpha-Stim electrotherapy device can be even greater, increasing cumulatively over time as cell function becomes more readily modulated.

Treating Anxiety, Depression, and/or Insomnia with CES
The Alpha-Stim® AID treats anxiety, depression, and/or insomnia with microcurrent using a method called cranial electrotherapy stimulation (CES). The treatment is very simple. The current is applied by easy to use earclip electrodes that attach on the ear lobes. Used just 20 to 60 minutes every day, every other day, or on an as-needed basis, it can help induce a pleasant, relaxed feeling of well being. The Alpha-Stim AID is well tolerated and very safe in contrast to drugs used in the treatment of mood disorders, many of which have been proven to have undesirable side effects and can be addictive. Unlike drugs, the Alpha-Stim AID leaves the mind alert. Anxiety reduction is usually experienced during treatment. Depression and insomnia control is generally experienced after one to three weeks of daily treatment. CES can also help treat the underlying mood disorders associated with pain.
It may be used as an adjunct to medication and/or psychotherapy. After treatment, there are usually no physical limitations imposed so the majority of people can resume normal activities immediately. Maintenance of a relaxed, yet alert state is generally achieved with treatments three times per week. As a result, the Alpha-Stim AID is suitable for clinical or home use.
Treating Pain With MET
The Alpha-Stim® M uses microcurrent electrical therapy (MET) for those suffering from acute, chronic or postoperative pain, and works with the body on a large variety of ailments, including difficult-to-treat problems. Alpha-Stim microcurrent technology produces residual and cumulative results, far superior to previous traditional milliampere transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) devices. Turn a TENS off and the pain returns. Although broadly classified as a TENS, the Alpha-Stim is significantly superior because MET works with tiny currents, closer to the type and amount of electricity that naturally occurs in the body. By comparison, the electric current used by typical TENS devices is thousands of times greater than natural body current. Although a slight tingling sensation is sometimes felt under the electrodes, it is not necessary to feel this in order to achieve results. Many people feel nothing at all with the Alpha-Stim except positive results. MET is applied through easy to use probes or self-adhesive electrodes. Specific treatment protocols are included with the Alpha-Stim and clinical and technical assistance is readily available by telephone, fax, e-mail or mail. Alpha-Stim technology is backed by more independent research than any other device in its class. Electromedical Products International, Inc. has been in business since 1981, treating a wide variety of medical disorders with Alpha-Stim microcurrent technology during that time with no reports of significant side effects.
