Alpha-Stim Technology For Depression, Anxiety And Chronic Pain Now Available In New Zealand

alpha-stim1WHAT IS ALPHA-STIM?
Alpha Stim units are compact electromedical devices that use Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation (CES) to relieve mental health problems such as depression, anxiety, insomnia and a variety of chronic pain conditions including fibromyalgia.

CES is completely safe and easy to use. It is backed by over a hundred clinical research papers including 35 double blind trials and has been used in the US and Europe for over 27 years.

CES increases alpha brain waves and triggers the release of serotonin and other feel-good neurotransmitters by delivering a precise waveform of low level electrical current similar to that which the body produces itself.

People using CES report feeling happier and lighter with a more positive, enthusiastic outlook. They find their thinking is clearer and their memory better. Their bodies feel more relaxed and they feel younger and more energetic.

Alpha Stim CES units are proven effective for clinical depression, insomnia, anxiety and panic attacks and chronic pain including fibromyalgia. They are listed for use in New Zealand by Medsafe and are available for use without a prescription.

Testimonials from around the world, including New Zealand can be found on our website and our US parent site listed below. You can watch a recent news story aired on Channel Nine in Australia about CES and interviews with medical professionals and patients about their experiences. Go to

In the US Alpha Stim is dubbed the ‘Depression-Zapper’ and is used by GPs as a highly effective alternative to drug therapy.

As an Australian-trained naturopath having worked in many clinic situations around the world including orthodox medical practices I am familiar with the medical profession being somewhat skeptical of ‘natural’ treatments.

What I assumed however is that if a treatment has been developed within the medical profession itself, proven effective and used by medical doctors and psychiatrists overseas that this information would have reached the Australasian medical community within a few years.

It is a bit of a mystery why a safe and effective treatment for depression, anxiety, insomnia and a host of mental health problems has taken so long to become available to us here in the Southern hemisphere. This CES technology was developed by a US doctor with a PhD in Neurobiology and is used by doctors, psychiatrists and other health practitioners worldwide!

Australian psychiatrist Stephen Hyde came across this technology at a mental health expo and decided to trial them on his 10 most treatment-resistant patients.

These were people with and average clinical history of 18 years with conditions including depression, bi-polar disorder, PTSD, anxiety and insomnia. The results impressed him to such an extent that he incorporated it into his daily practice (his article can be found on our website). You can see Stephen in the news story (link sited earlier in the article).

Fortunately for us, Stephen Hyde has a Kiwi brother, John Hyde, a board member of a local Mental Health NGO, who saw the need for CES technology to be available to New Zealanders and began importing the devices in April of this year.

I now work with John, spreading the news wherever and whenever possible to medical and alternative practitioners nationwide.

We are so convinced about this treatment as an alternative to drugs that we offer free 30 day trials to practitioners and their patients. We strongly believe this will become a first-line treatment option within the medical community as it has overseas.

Please don’t take my word for it, check out the comprehensive clinical research, read the testimonials and contact us if you would like to trial a unit.

You can also look at news reports around the US on the Alpha Stim site, or type Alpha Stim into the YouTube site to view news reports and medical practitioners speaking about their experiences.

Alpha Stim may have taken many years to become available in this part of the world but we believe it is well worth the wait!
