Very interesting. I just spoke with a rep from a CES product called Alpha-Stim and they want $495 for their basic product and like $895 for their advanced model (which also works on pain). The basic model does, however, do all of the regular CES functioning. Do you have the information on the type of model that Dr Braverman was offering for sale?

Please keep me updated on how this works out for you (and your friend for that matter). I have problems with both anxiety and depression (started out almost exclusively anxiety and depression gradually added in to the picture).

Right now my psych doc wants to have me try an EMDR therapist and possible a different AD, but this CES concept seems very promising.

> I read the "Edge Effect" book. I got it from a screwed up friend of mine who had already been to see the doc/author. This guy does the brain mapping stuff and i must say he has helped out my friend a lot so i went to see him about 6 weeks ago. Interesting (and expensive) experience. He said i have very low dopamine levels. He also wants me to start using the CES to help me sleep because that's been a huge problem for me. I haven't tried it yet but my friend says it does help him relax and he often falls asleep with it on. Now whether that's due to the CES forcing his brain into a delta wave electrical pattern (1-4 Hz i think it is?) or whether it just kind of helps to focus your attention so your mind doesn't start going over every bad choice you've ever made in your life i don't know. These things seem to make sense in theory but it's hard to come up with any really hard science on them. I have an appointment to see the guy next week and i want to get the ball rolling. I didn't buy the CES the last time i was there because he wants $300 for it and i'm sure i can get the same one on-line cheaper. Of course having no dopamine in my head i haven't managed to muster up the motivation to go searching for it on-line either. I'm basically shot...
