PTSD Treatment with Alpha-Stim AID Technology

Veterans suffering from anxiety, insomnia, and depression as a result of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) often benefit from Acupuncture treatment along with Alpha-Stim AID Cranial Electrotherapy. In a study at Michael E. DeBakey Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Houston, Texas, veterans who experience severe anxiety, insomnia and depression chose Alpha-Stim 3 out of 4 times. These were veterans who were suffering from chronic pain along with mood and sleep disorders. After being shown how to use 5 treatment options, they continued to choose Alpha-Stim 73% of the time.
