Alpha-Stim Helps Veteran Drastically Reduce Reliance on Opioids

Military men and women often face physical and mental health struggles as a direct result of their service. They may sustain physical injuries during training or combat, or even just from the daily grind of hauling around their equipment. Insomnia is also common in Service Members – regardless of whether they’ve seen combat or remained in a relatively safe environment. Even without being stationed in a war zone, a Service Member faces a stressful lifestyle day in and day out. Although being in the military can be a great source of pride and honor, it can also take a toll on the physical and mental health of those who serve.

This Veteran reduced his opioid use by 75% with the help of Alpha-Stim.

With such prevalence of insomnia and pain among Service Members, the United States military healthcare system has embraced Alpha-Stim® for its effectiveness at treating these conditions. Alpha-Stim is an FDA cleared, handheld medical device that works without medications to restore balance to the brain and deliver fast, safe, and lasting relief. Countless Veterans and Service Members have been amazed by the results. One Veteran writes:

I’ve used Alpha-Stim for pain and insomnia with fantastic results since October of 2014. I have 967 hours of use logged on it.

I first used it for polyarthritis and bursitis. I found the results to be fast and cumulative. Since my pain points are throughout my body, I’d spend around two hours everyday with the probes, and then 40 minutes with CES treatment.

After a few months, I’d reduced my narcotic/opioid use by 75%. Yes. 75%. A year or so later, I had to reintroduce the use of narcotics due to the amount of my body that was involved. I now use MET for breakthrough pain. I’ve continued using CES daily for 40 minutes.

The Alpha-Stim has been an incredibly important part of my healthcare the past five years. I cannot imagine living without this device. I am unable to express in words my gratitude to those who have made this device possible for me to use.

I am 70 years old now. I wish I could have used this after my discharge in 1969. Without a doubt, my life would be different now.”

The CES that this Veteran mentions stands for cranial electrotherapy stimulation. This is the modality employed by Alpha-Stim to treat insomnia; it delivers microcurrents of electricity, in a patented waveform, through two electrodes worn on the earlobes. These microcurrents bring balance to the brainwaves. To treat pain, Alpha-Stim uses microcurrent electrical therapy (MET), delivered through two handheld smart probes, to bring relief directly to the site of your pain. Relief is long lasting and often immediate.

Because Alpha-Stim is not a drug, there is no risk of addiction, lasting side effects, or withdrawal. Current Service Members can rest assured that they can use Alpha-Stim without impairing their ability to perform their duties.

Alpha-Stim has long been recognized by the military for its effectiveness; it is a key part of the U.S. Navy Pain Management Program and the alternative medicine center at William Beaumont Army Medical Center. Its pain relief is so powerful that it even helped one veteran avoid amputation of both of his legs.

But the use of Alpha-Stim in military hospitals would mean nothing if it weren’t for real-life success stories like this one. It is an honor to bring relief and comfort to those who have so bravely and selflessly served.
