The Alpha-Stim® treats depression with Microcurrent using a method called cranial electrotherapy stimulation (CES).
The treatment is very simple. The current is applied by easy-to-use clip electrodes that attach on the ear lobes. Used just 20 to 40 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® 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® leaves the mind alert. Depression control is generally experienced after one to two weeks of daily treatment.
