RE: cranial electrotherapy stimulation

Posted by Elroy on February 15, 2005, at 20:52:53

Wondering why there's such a lack of information on all of the relevant forums concerning cranial electrotherapy stimulation (CES)?

It is (supposedly) FDA approved for depression, anxiety and insomnia and appears to have had a considerable amount of clinical testing as to some degree of effectiveness.

Is it actually "politics in healing" simply in that the Big Pharms control the environment too strongly? Or did the FDA approve a "quack device" (highly, highly unusual for the FDA).

Or is it that people who use CES get better and have no use to be lurking these types of forums and jumping from onemed to another to another?

Is anyone aware of an association of CES practioners that one could research to find a CES qualified practioner? Personally, I wouldn't mind checking out that particular treatment protocol.

QUOTE - Research over the last 40 years indicates that CES:

- Restores balance between Neurotransmitters:[Serotonin, dopamine, epinephrine and norepinephrine, GABA]

- Interferes with the HPA stress cycle

- Increases Natural Killer cell activity

- Reduces Cortisol

- Increases Serotonin uptake

- Increases Beta Endorphins

How does CES work?

A. Studies have demonstrated therapeutic effects associated with a proper balance of serotonin, norepinephrine, dopamine, GABA and endorphins. Research indicates that CES assists the brain in restoring neurochemical balance by stimulating the area of the hypothalamus, thus allowing the brain to function normally again.

What does research tell us about the effectiveness of CES and amino acid supplementation?

A. Evidence on CES efficacy can be linked to the use of computerized EEG's or topographical brain mapping. Serum, Cerebral Spinal Fluid and urine lab tests confirm increases in Serotonin, Dopamine, Beta-endorphins, GABA and a reduction in Cortisol (the stress hormone). These tests validate that CES use alters the abnormal electrophysiology associated with stress, as well as normalizing other dysfunctional brainwave patterns.

Evidence that amino acid supplementation restores neurotransmitter levels to a more normal level is based on over 20,000 lab studies.

A recent NDS study demonstrated a significant improvement in retention of neurotransmitters when CES was applied. This helps individuals reach and maintain optimal and balanced neurotransmitter levels in a more efficient manner.
