What Is Alpha-Stim?
Alpha-Stim 100 is a prescription medical device. It is a combined microcurrent electrical therapy (MET) and cranial electrotherapy stimulation (CES) device used to treat pain, anxiety, insomnia and depression. Over 126 research studies on CES have been done with humans. A peer reviewed published outcome study has shown improvements in pain in 94% of patients studied. An additional 29 studies were conducted with experimental animals to ensure safety and efficacy. The relief from Alpha-Stim is residual and cumulative, resulting in less frequent use. And while Alpha-Stim works well with other treatment protocols, it is proven effective as a stand-alone therapy, and does not require any drugs or create addiction.
How Alpha -Stim Works
An animal’s body is made up of trillions of cells. Each cell has electrical properties, much like that of a battery. Alpha-Stim generates a unique, proprietary electrical wave-form that allows the animal’s cells to operate naturally and bring relief from pain, anxiety, insomnia or depression. This proprietary waveform moves electrons throughout the animal’s body and brain at a variety of frequencies, collectively known as harmonic resonance. Alpha-Stim was introduced in 1981 and has since provided millions of people around the world relief, even when nothing else has worked for them. Extensive work with animals – there are 29 published animal studies – shows positive results with no significant lasting side effects.
What Research Supports Alpha-Stim?
With 55 completed research studies – and many more underway – there is more research supporting the efficacy of Alpha-Stim technology than any other medical device and even more than for most drugs. An important fact about Alpha-Stim research is that none of it is company-supported. Most of the studies are double blind placebo controlled and were conducted at major US universities. The US government has funded two major Alpha-Stim studies. One is a National Cancer Institute/National Institutes of Health funded study for breast cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy and the other is a VA study for veterans with spinal cord injuries based on a successful pilot study A comprehensive, double-blind equine study was conducted of the stress reduction effects of Alpha-Stim with 8 thoroughbred horses (2 fillies, 3 mares, 3 geldings) at the De Montfort University Equestiran Centre and Field Station at Caythorpe, Lincolnshire, United Kingdom. This study concluded that the results are consistent with beneficial effects using the Alpha-Stim. Effects were seen on the behaviors of greatest relevance to assessing anxious arousal in the given circumstances, namely time spent alert and dozing, and a number of other parameters consistent with relaxation. Specifically, there was no significant increase in any parameter associated with excitement nor was there any evidence that Alpha-Stim has any detrimental effects on the horses’ well being.
How Do I Use Alpha-Stim in My Veterinary Practice?
There are two primary ways to use Alpha-Stim within your practice: 1) as an animal treatment procedure during veterinary doctor visits; and 2) Selling (e.g., for chronic disorders) or renting (e.g., for postoperative pain) Alpha-Stim to the animal owner who would then use it on the patient.
Alpha-Stim uses a method called cranial electrotherapy stimulation (CES) to treat anxiety, insomnia and depression. The Alpha-Stim proprietary waveform is applied to the animal through ear clip electrodes [note: self-adhesive electrodes are also available and can be applied to the temple area for the same results]. A typical CES session lasts 20 minutes, leaving the animal relaxed and alert. Alpha-Stim is also used to treat pain using microcurrent electrical therapy (MET). Animals suffering from acute, chronic or post-operative pain may experience relief from Alpha-Stim by applying the probes or self-adhesive electrodes to the affected area.
Owner adminstered Alpha-Stim
You can prescribe an Alpha-Stim for the pet owner, who purchases an Alpha-Stim from you, and in turn administers Alpha-Stim to their pet. Alpha-Stim comes with a complete set of instructions, as well as protocol diagrams to ensure the proper placement of ear clips, probes and/or self-adhesive electrodes.
What Veterinary Doctors Are Saying About Alpha-Stim
“There has been nothing in the veterinary industry that can do for animals what Alpha-Stim® does. It is a drugless behavior and pain management treatment. Totally safe and effective, the AS-100 has made positive changes in my patients suffering from: pain related to injury or surgery in all tissues, arthritis, and other chronic neuromuscularconditions. Biochemical and neuronal dysfunction such as cognitive dysfunction, obsessive compulsive disorder (e.g., lick granulomas, over grooming in cats, hallucinations, hyperesthesia), separation anxiety syndrome, depression, urinary incontinence, anorexia in cats, loss of social status in home, over reactive sympathetic system in horses, and other nervous and aggression related conditions. It is also beneficial in healing wounds, non-union fractures, lower motor neuron injuries and reducing chronic infectious states. Clients are thrilled and amazed at the changes in their animals following Alpha-Stim treatments. Thanks to Electromedical Products International, Inc., at Animal Fitness Center our slogan is, “Eliminating pain is what we do BEST!”TM Any veterinarians wanting to be on top of pain management needs to have Alpha-Stim in their hospital.”
