Alpha-Stim: Technology That Treats Pain, Insomnia And Depression
Alpha-Stim technology by EPI are the newest forms of treatment being used to treat insomnia, pain, depression, and anxiety-related disorders such as PTSD. The technology, cleared for interstate marketing and export by the FDA and the DOD/VA for compl
January 21, 2011 (Newswire.com) - Alpha-Stim prescription medical technology with http://www.alpha-stim.com/, just received the 2010 American Institute of Stress Award for Distinction And Innovation for being at the top of the list for stress management products and services achieving a growing list of publications in peer reviewed journals demonstrating its efficacy and safety. For those suffering from pain, anxiety, insomnia, or depression there is new hope for relief called Alpha-Stim cranial electrotherapy stimulation (CES).
The new treatment is delivered using a pocket sized electronic device that uses ear clip electrodes to deliver a low level current in a precise waveform configuration of less than one milliampere directly into the brain for 20 to 60 minutes at a time. To treat pain, the devices will be used with electrode patches that are attached to the body in order to offer rapid and cumulative relief. Many patients who normally suffer from pain or anxiety are noticing more immediate and longer lasting relief with Alpha-Stim therapy than they ever did with pharmaceuticals.
The Alpha-Stim waveform is supported by countless scientific studies, more so than any other medical device. In fact, there have been more than 55 studies and reviews conducted on the Alpha Stim 100, the Alpha-Stim SCS and the Alpha-Stim PPM. Currently, this form of microcurrent therapy is being used to treat depression and it is especially useful to treat anxiety, but microcurrent electrical therapy is showing promise with centrally mediated pain syndromes such as fibromyalgia.
Microcurrent technology is thought to affect the parts of the brain stem that is known to regulate emotions such as the limbic system, the reticular activating system and the hypothalamus. It is also thought to stimulate regions that control pain and the signals that occur in people experiencing anxiety or depression.
In most cases, especially for patients experiencing pain, relief is found within just a few minutes. And because it works so well and because it is backed by so many research studies, Alpha-Stim is now being used by certain government sectors including psychiatric hospitals and prisons. Experts believe the Alpha-Stim therapy is safer than any other effective therapy for those experiencing insomnia, depression, anxiety or pain.
About www.Alpha-Stim.com: Alpha-Stim is a new technology that uses specific waveforms of energy to help treat mood disorders such as anxiety, depression, PTSD, ADD and many more. The technology, which is largely backed by medicine and psychology researchers including many within the DOD/VA, is currently being used in the private sector as an effective and safe treatment of many psychological disorders.
