What Is Alpha-Stim?

Alpha-Stim 1000 is a prescription medical device (US only). It is a combined microcurrent electrical therapy (MET) and cranial electrotherapy stimulation (CES) device used to help manage  pain, anxiety, insomnia and depression. Over 126 research studies on CES have been done with humans.  A peer reviewed published outcome study has shown improvements in pain in 94% of patients studied. An additional 29 studies were conducted with experimental animals to ensure safety and efficacy. The relief from Alpha-Stim is residual and cumulative, resulting in less frequent use. And while Alpha-Stim works well with other treatment protocols, it is proven effective as a stand-alone therapy, and does not require any drugs or create addiction.

 

How Alpha -Stim Works

An animal’s body is made up of trillions of cells. Each cell has electrical properties, much like that of a battery. Alpha-Stim generates a unique, proprietary electrical wave-form that allows the animal’s cells to operate naturally and bring relief from pain, anxiety, insomnia or depression. This proprietary waveform moves electrons throughout the animal’s body and brain at a variety of frequencies, collectively known as harmonic resonance. Alpha-Stim was introduced in 1981 and has since provided millions of people around the world relief, even when nothing else has worked for them. Extensive work with animals – there are 29 published animal studies – shows positive results with no significant lasting side effects.

What Research Supports Alpha-Stim?

With 55 completed research studies – and many more underway – there is more research supporting the efficacy of Alpha-Stim technology than any other medical device and even more than for most drugs. An important fact about Alpha-Stim research is that none of it is company-supported. Most of the studies are double blind placebo controlled and were conducted at major US universities. The US government has funded two major Alpha-Stim studies. One is a National Cancer Institute/National Institutes of Health funded study for breast cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy and the other is a VA study for veterans with spinal cord injuries based on a successful pilot study A comprehensive, double-blind equine study was conducted of the stress reduction effects of Alpha-Stim with 8 thoroughbred horses (2 fillies, 3 mares, 3 geldings) at the De Montfort University Equestiran Centre and Field Station at Caythorpe, Lincolnshire, United Kingdom. This study concluded that the results are consistent with beneficial effects using the Alpha-Stim. Effects were seen on the behaviors of greatest relevance to assessing anxious arousal in the given circumstances, namely time spent alert and dozing, and a number of other parameters consistent with relaxation. Specifically, there was no significant increase in any parameter associated with excitement nor was there any evidence that Alpha-Stim has any detrimental effects on the horses’ well being.

In-office treatments

Alpha-Stim uses a method called cranial electrotherapy stimulation (CES) to treat anxiety, insomnia and depression. The Alpha-Stim proprietary waveform is applied to the animal through ear clip electrodes [note: self-adhesive electrodes are also available and can be applied to the temple area for the same results]. A typical CES session lasts 20 minutes, leaving the animal relaxed and alert. Alpha-Stim is also used to treat pain using microcurrent electrical therapy (MET). Animals suffering from acute, chronic or post-operative pain may experience relief from Alpha-Stim by applying the probes or self-adhesive electrodes to the affected area.
