Alpha-Stim® Insomnia Testimonials
Author: Lawrence B.
Indications: Anxiety, Insomnia, Depression
I am a 53-year old man with a history of anxiety and depression that I can trace back to being five years of age.
I have sought relief through treatment with psychiatrists and psychologists for the past fifteen years. I have been prescribed SSRI's, MAOI's, and tricyclics, all to no avail. Recently, I moved to Nevada, and as a lawyer, was required to take the Nevada Bar Exam. While studying, I fell into a major depressive episode accompanied by disabling anxiety.
I sought help from a local psychiatrist. At the end of our initial consultation, he told me, "I don't want you to think that I'm a quack, but some of my patients have gotten relief from a device called the Alpha-Stim." He had me try his demonstrator and I immediately felt a reduction in my anxiety level. After a two-week trial period, I purchased an Alpha-Stim from him. Since then my depression has noticeably lessened, my anxiety is greatly reduced, and I am sleeping better. I consider myself a total skeptic and do not believe that this is simply a placebo effect. I would highly recommend the Alpha-Stim to anyone who suffers from depression, anxiety and/or insomnia.

In February 2006, I was diagnosed with a peripheral nerve neuropathy disease called Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy (CIDP), and Guillian-Barre Syndrome (GBS) an autoimmune disease that affects peripheral nerves. I suffer from a residual neurological deficit that causes paresthesia and pain in most of my joints. I have double vision, extreme fatigue, tingling in my hands and feet, slurred speech caused by facial paralysis, stiffness and pain in my upper and lower back makes it difficult to walk.
I was lucky in finding out about CES and the ALPHA-STIM 100. I do my daily physical therapy routine using body training machines at a local Gold’s Gym. A professional body builder was using the ALPHA- STIM 100 for muscle pain. I was curious about the probes and ear clips connected to this small square white box. Learning about CES via the Internet I have found vast amount of research from Europe and the United States and have read about how CES has helped so many people with pain and other medical problems.
My neurologist, Rehab physician, pain specialist and myself decided that CES might help my pain and was worth a try, as I was in a great deal of pain even with all the physical therapy and narcotics. All I can say is that I wish I would have known about the ALPHA-STIM 100 in February 2006. From the very beginning the probe therapy helped with my pain. My back pain and joint pain is a lot better since I have been using the ALPHA STIM 100. My treatment plan is modeled using the MET; CES Protocol designed by Daniel L. Kirsch, Ph.D., D.A.A.P.M.
I have been able to reduce my pain medication and have a better quality of life thanks to the ALPHA-STIM 100. I use to wake up at night from pain. My insomnia from pain has been pretty much been cured and I no longer need sleeping pills. Daniel L. Kirsch, Ph.D., D.A.A.P.M., and Electromedical Products International, Inc., has helped me regain a pain free life.
Thanks for a great product

I have had a severe sleeping disorder ever since serving as a Marine in Viet Nam. Additionally, as a result of my "experiences" there, I also suffer from anxiety attacks and other "conditions."
I have been dealing/coping/enduring these and other issues for over 38 plus years.I would experience severe sleeping disorder bouts at least 2-3 times a year. I finally sought help and have been on many different medications for the past 14 years.
However,in the past, when I could not fall asleep at night I almost always fell asleep out of sheer exhaustion about the time I was supposed to get up and go to work.
This past May (2006), I began what would eventually be a 6 week bout without being able to fall asleep at night. However, for the first time, I did not/could not fall asleep as I had been able to do in the past. I gave up and tried to take a nap later in the day and still could not fall asleep. That night, and for what would go on for the next 6 weeks, I could not sleep at all!
After the better part of a week, I finally called my Psychiatrist and he "upped" the dosages on my medication. When that didn't work we changed medications.This went on for weeks and nothing was working! I flat out could not sleep!
Days had now turned into weeks. I was now psyched out, I could not think straight, and I had become desperate. Every day and every night was an eternity. I was exhausted, suffering, my mind was not thinking rationally, and I started feeling hopeless and was now feeling depressed. I did not know what was happening to me. I had never felt this "bad" or this "way" before. I was in such bad shape mentally that I actually started thinking of taking my own life, anything but this pain and mental anguish I was experiencing.
My Psychiatrist finally put me on 30 milligrams of Valium, 100 milligrams of Seroquel, 600 milligrams of Lithium, and a "new" Patch for Depression (Selegiline transdermal System). He also told me that I had slipped into "deep clinical melancholy Depression." There was nothing more he could do for me medicinally and based on my "condition," he recommended Electro Convulsion Therapy. These new medications "knocked me out," and I started getting sleep, but I was in the throes of deep depression. Although desperate, ECT still sounded very radical.
My Sister had been scouring the internet for anything related to Depression and came upon your site. I called "Karl," got my Psychiatrist to prescribe Alpha Stim and ordered it. It didn't happen overnight, but after about 3 weeks I started making "baby steps" out of my depression. I have used it every other day since then, and came out of depression in late August. As a precautionary measure, even though I thought I was almost back to "normal," my Psychiatrist still has me on the same medication.
I believe Alpha Stim made a significant difference in my recovery and highly recommend it to anyone with sleeping problems, anxiety attacks, and depression

I had the Alpha-Stim 100 recommended by my therapist for insomnia. I have been dealing with poor sleep for about five years trying various remedies from meditation to several different sleep drugs. I have been using the Alpha-Stim 100 now for about three weeks and have been able to cut my usage of Ambien by about 80 or 90% and the bonus is that there are no side effects! I am very pleased and surprised by the results as I have tried virtually everything else and nothing has even come close to working this well. I am also using it for pain from a torn rotator cuff and seen the pain and discomfort dimished to the point where I may be able to avoid surgery. Overall, I am more than just pleased with all the results and plan to continue using the Alpha-Stim 100 for as long as it is needed. Thank you so much for your product and the results.
