  • Trouble Remembering? This helped me.

    I have memory problems and as some of you may know I highly recommend Evernote and have for years. Though I've found that writing helps me remember more. I ran across Tom's videos on youtube, I'm a bit geeky and I also use an IPad so if you take notes on your IPad or you are thinking of going paperless check it out. I'm really happy with it, I use it with a program called Noteshelf 2.

Pain relief with Alpha-Stim?

Question

One of our hadit Vets had emailed me about the Alpha Stim, for paid/depression relief.    Apparently VA is/may consider one for him.  I dont know if these work or not, but I may just ask my PCP for one.  Of course, that takes weeks or months.

Is anyone else familiar with http://www.alpha-stim.com/

?

After having my visits increased from one per week to several per week, I finished the initial evaluation sessions. The therapist mentioned that I looked like I was in less pain from when I had my first treatment. They placed an order for the device to be shipped to my house and it should arrive within the next week or so.

I know this is an older post however was just prescribed this for depression, stress and sleep issues. I see it seems to help with pain, a great side effect, anyone had this for depression etc?

Well this is working out to be great for all of the concerns. The therapist even ran the pain portion on my hands, haven't been able to open left hand since stroke in 09 after 2nd treatment it opens flat. Now to work some strength into it. 

Anyone wondering about this try it definitely better than more drugs.

Very interesting, will have to do a little research, never heard of Alpha-Stim Therapy.

I've been using a VMC issued battery powered TENS unit for Chronic PN Foot pain, with marginal tempory relief for about 2 yrs.     Semper Fi
