The device pays for itself a hundredfold both for my own
new lease on life, but also as I see it in the faces and expressions

husband and dad that you have given back to my family.

It is not possible to express in
words how thankful I am to your company and Dr. Kirsch for the Alpha-Stim
100, and the incredibly positive and healing effects it has had in my life.
That said, if my words might convince just one other person to try the
device, who may be undecided, then I'll give it my best shot...
Yours is a product that goes against the tide in our disposable culture:
your Alpha-Stim 100 not only works, but it works the first time, and lasts a
long time, and has incredibly broad application. I will never be without one
again, and my only regret is I can’t buy ten of them to give to those
several of my friends and family who each are locked in struggle with one or
more issues of anxiety, depression, &/or pain. I know they would see the
same kind of "get out of jail free"-card benefits that I have with this
I learned about Dr. Becker via his research on bone regrowth—clearly a man
who has made a major contribution to medical practice across the country, as
that widely recognized superior approach and subsequently was adopted by the
AMA and hospitals across the country and around the world. It was that
reputation that made me put aside my doubts and consider learning more about
After years of being dependent on anti-depressants, I was becoming really
weary of a solution which had helped me be more even-keeled and but at a
price: I also felt I was under a kind of chemical blanket that left me less
present for my own life and for my family. That and not being able to sleep
well made me want to try the Alpha-Stim 100 as soon as I heard about it.
After discussing it with my psychiatrist, we thought we’d give it a shot.
Once I received the unit, I waffled a bit—I admit it—and decided just to
test the basic claims about pain management or mitigation--which by
themselves I found somewhat hard to believe. I wasn’t about to clip
something on my ears and run a microcurrent through my brain until I had
validated its effectiveness on something a little less scary, like cramped
and kinked low-back muscles.
I had been unsuccessfully nursing recurring back pain for more than three
weeks, so I thought I’d try the Alpha-Stim on a real challenge. Running
through the Pain protocol myself with the two probes--vectoring as described
in your manual--in less than 60 seconds (which is roughly five different
positionings of the two probes) around the pain in my back, I had to stop
and think. Why the heck am I doing this, my back doesn’t really hurt. Well,
it still doesn’t. And that pain is such a distant memory I’m not really sure
what side of my back it was.
Just to control for placebo, I tried it again a week later on a crick in my
neck & shoulder I’d earned from hoisting my one-year old daughter up from
the floor seventy-leven times a day. Again, within 60 seconds, I was in the
same mental space of wondering why I was wasting my time with this silly
device when my shoulder doesn’t really hurt at all. Phenomenal. As they say
in the RonCo commercials Now How Much Would You Pay? But this doesn’t do
julienne fries; it gets rid of pain without drugs.
At that point it seemed idiotic to delay trying the unit on my depression.
That being one of the things about depression, inertia, inability to move
forward. Even to help yourself out of depression.
How much this is actually worth is hard to calculate. How much is your
mental health worth? How much is it worth not to be in pain? How much is it
worth to your family. What are the societal costs to depression and chronic
pain on an annual GDP basis? What about other "remedies" which are actually
If you’re on the fence about trying this device, I have to ask you to
reflect on whether you’re just blocked by the situation you know, and the
possibility of not being with the pains you are accustomed to is kind of
frightening in its own way. "What would I do if I didn’t have the pain any
more?" Just try it.
When I began realizing what was happening as a result of using the unit, the
first thing I did was laugh out loud.
No veil between me and reality. Being present, happy, resilient. Feeling my
feelings without getting sucked into a black hole. Just being healthy. I
figured the Alpha-Stim was hopelessly overpriced when I bought it. Now I
figure in a truly equitable world I’d pay thousands a year just to have it
around, and with the money I saved on drugs and doctor visits, I’d spend
more to give it away to others who couldn’t afford it.
By the third night of using the device for the depression & anxiety
protocol, I forgot to take my anti-depressant pill before going to sleep.
Two weeks later I called my psychiatrist and said we may have a winner,
I’ll call you in a week.
If I had some time with Dr. Kirsch, I’d have several hundred questions to
ask him about his research and this device. But my main thanks is that he
toughed it out for all the years it took not only to cover the basic science
but then the miniaturization, reaching an accessible price-point, and then
the policy & regulatory process to make sure this device could become
available to the general public.
The device pays for itself a hundredfold both for my own new lease on life,
but also as I see it in the faces and expressions of delighted surprise at
the stable, centered, well-rested and happy husband and dad that you have
given back to my family.
I wish I could allow you to use my name, but in my line of work as you can
understand even mentioning depression or anxiety can mean loss of
possibility of promotion or employability. At some point I guess I'll stop
caring about that, and then I'll write you another thank you letter.
I encourage anyone in similar situation to try either of the Alpha-Stim
products—with depression, the only thing you have to lose is the "bag of
rocks" you’ve been hauling around. That, and no more monthly pharmacy bills.
