What is Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation (CES)?
Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation FAQs:
1. Is it safe?- Yes. Electricity is perfectly safe at the level that Alpha-Stim® delivers. Remember, we all have electrical currents flowing throughout our brain and body at all times. Alpha-Stim® uses tiny currents close to the amount that flows naturally in our systems.
2. Is it like shock therapy or something?- No, not at all. Shock therapy uses a current that is 1000 times greater than the Alpha-Stim®. We use current close to your body's own naturally occurring electrical current. To many patients the feeling is subsensational. Alpha-Stim® is an extremely safe treatment, that unlike shock therapy, has no major adverse effects ever reported.
3. Will I feel better after the first use?- Maybe. Many patients that use the Alpha-Stim® report benefit after the first use. Keep in mind that it may take one to 3 weeks however for some people to feel benefit. It will depend on how your body reacts to the input.
4. What are the long term effects?- The amount of electricity used does not cause any known cell damage at all. Out of the estimated 15 million patients that have used the Alpha-Stim®, none have reported any long term negative effects.
Remember- the body likes and needs electrons, the flow of electrons (electricity), and electrically charged particles to operate. Low levels of electricity are safe!
