The brain is both a chemical and electrical machine. It produces neurotransmitters to control electrical outputs throughout the body. Alpha-Stim® treats depression, anxiety, and insomnia with tiny electrical currents similar to those found naturally in the body, using a method called cranial electrotherapy stimulation (CES). These currents have been shown in clinical studies to normalize the electrical output of the brain as well as increase the body’s serotonin and beta endorphin levels.
Alpha-Stim® has shown in peer reviewed studies, that it is more efficacious beyond a placebo effect than some of the leading depression treatment medication on the market. It provides significant relief to 9 out of 10 patients that try it.
Depression is difficult enough without having to worry about serious side effects. Most antidepressant medication on the market today can cause serious side effects, and many now come with a “Black Box Warning.” The tiny currents of electricity that Alpha-Stim® applies cause almost no side effects. The side effects that can occur are usually mild and self limiting.
