Online PR News – 20-December-2010 – – Dr. Daniel Kirsch, in a keynote speech to a packed house at the 2010 AAIM National Conference, posed a new primary or complementary treatment for anxiety, insomnia and depression. The treatment is known as cranial electrotherapy stimulation, or CES, and Dr. Kirsch with stated that it is a very safe and highly useful brain therapy that uses mild electrical current.

Dr. Kirsch is the founder of Electromedical Products International, Inc. (EPI), which develops, manufactures and markets Alpha-Stim technology. Alpha-Stim devices use two wires that clip to the patient's ears. Using 'cranial electrotherapy stimulation' (50-100 microamps of electricity), the device increases the patient's alpha brain waves. According to Kirsch, this leaves the patient feeling relaxed, yet alert, as the device calms the central nervous system.

Alpha-Stim technology is not new. Twelve million people have used Alpha-Stim devices over the past twenty years, and the American military has been using the technology for over five years now. In fact, in a recent study using 32 military veterans to test various treatments for pain management, post tramatic stress syndrome, among other ailments, 73%, or 3 out of 4, veterans chose Alpha-Stim when given a choice out of 5 different treatment devices. Dr. Kirsch states, "One of the reasons the military like this product is that many of the psychopharmacological approaches to anxiety have side effects that impair alertness.”

During his keynote speech, Dr. Kirsch stated that Alpha-Stim has almost limitless applications and that it has been effective in the treatment of:

•Pain relief
•Joint pain
•Back pain
•Neck pain
•Wrist pain
•Mood disorder
•Tight muscles

Alpha-Stim technology is available in several models, all used to treat different ailments. Recently, Dr. Kirsch agreed to support a new charity called the Officer Down Foundation by giving a free Alpha-Stim device to every family of a law enforcement officer killed on duty.
