Alpha-Stim® Medical Endorsements
The results have been as long lasting as the results with
the local anesthetic injection.

I have been using the
Alpha-Stim CS for six months now. As the President of the American Academy
of Neural Therapy, I am most concerned and involved with the treatment of
chronic intractable pain.
One of the most important and overlooked contributing factors in chronic
pain is the abnormal afferent neurological activity originating from scar
tissue. Traditionally, the treatment for this condition was the injection of
the scar with procaine or lidocaine ("neural therapy"). Faced with the
dilemma that neither dentists nor chiropractors or other healthcare
professionals that are not M.D.s or D.O.s are allowed by law to inject local
anesthetics, we were therefore looking for modalities other than injections
that could help restore normal electrochemical function of scar tissue.
The Alpha-Stim CS is the first such device that consistently was able to
successfully and lastingly treat the scars, such as hysterectomy scars,
appendectomy scars, etc. The electrode is applied to either end of the scar.
The current will travel allow the path of least resistance, which usually is
the scar itself. We found treatment times of 7-12 minutes sufficient. Just
as with injection treatment in neural therapy, treatment often needs to be
repeated 2-3 times (at one week intervals). We are using muscle testing
(applied kinesiology) as a guide as to when the treatment is completed. The
results have been as long lasting as the results with the local anesthetic
Therefore, I recommend the Alpha-Stim CS to all health practitioners for the
use in neural therapy treatment. The appropriate diagnostic approach should
be learned at the Neural Therapy Workshops conducted by the American Academy
of Neural Therapy, telephone number 206-749-9967.
