Alpha-Stim® Patient Testimonials
Use of the machine has allowed me to finally get control

- Faye Kulberg
This is to say thank you for the
Alpha-Stim 100. Use of the machine has allowed me to finally get
control over the debilitating pain of Fibromyalgia.
Since my early 40's when I started menopause, I have had severe migraines
requiring many trips to the emergency room for Demerol to control the pain
when before discovering Imitrex and being able to self administer shots at
the migraine onset. As you can see, I was no stranger to pain. Since early
childhood, I have had problems with fatigue and memory as well as panic and
anxiety attacks. Starting when I broke my leg in 1995, through the present,
I have developed other symptoms such as not being able to sleep, and pain in
various areas of my body. Doctors had not been able to determine the cause,
and only treated the symptoms.
As Vice President of Human Resources for a fortune 100 company, I had to
deal with all of this. Including taking numerous prescription medications
and continue to be functional at work. The only times that I could take the
prescription pain killers were after work and on weekends. Even then, the
pain became so bad that nothing helped. My doctor felt the pain was from a
misalignment due to the broken leg and sent me to a chiropractor who, after
a number of sessions, told me that she believed that I have Fibromyalgia and
had me go back to my doctor. The Fibromyalgia was officially diagnosed at
the end of 2002 at which time my doctor told me that there wasn't anything
that she could do for me, except to continue me on prescription drugs and
that I needed to exercise.
My depression increased. I realized that I would have to start taking the
medications while working which also wasn't viable. The number of drugs that
I already had tried that didn't work along with those that I wasn't
currently on would probably qualify for the Guinness Book of World Records.
As far as I was concerned, drugs were not a viable long term solution. Upon
my diagnosis, I realized that my mother also had Fibromyalgia which was
never diagnosed and let to her death from overuse of prescription drugs. I
regarded the recommendation to exercise as a joke. How could I ever exercise
when in so much pain? I was forced to make a decision between my fantastic
six figure job and my health. I retired on my birthday, January 24, 2003
My first step was to do extensive research on Fibromyalgia, which is how I
learned about the Alpha-Stim method and EPII.
I purchased the machine and used it as instructed, up to one hour each day
for 14 days, (being the overachiever that I am, I started with the max) and
was astonished at the results. The first week after completing this
treatment I was able to discontinue the sleep medications Alprazolam and
Amitryptilene which were no longer working and have not needed them since.
Restored sleep has helped me with the pain management and allowed me to
focus on getting the other symptoms under control. I have changed my diet,
and hired a trainer to help me with exercises.
For the first time in my life, there are many days that I get up and
continue through the day without pain. I realize that I will always have to
continue on this journey which, is now filled with anticipation instead of
anxiety. Hopefully, this journey will eventually lead me back to my HR
career that have so much enjoyed or maybe on to a new career.
