Yes, I checked out the Elixa site also. I noted that they use multiple frequencies (I believe that one is for insomnia effects and one is for the brain effects - anxiety, depression, and some pain relief).

I spoke with a rep from Aplha-Stim this AM and they advised that they sell their units on a 30-day basis. If you're not satisfied with it after 30-day you return it and get back all but a 10% re-stocking fee (and your shipping). So in effect, it's like a "rental" type process.

While they have a real advanced model, their base unit is $495, which is higher than most places but then they do have the "try-it-out" protocol.

Yes, please keep me posted as to what goes on with this. Will do same at my end!

> Come to think of it i have checked out that Alpha Stim site. That's right they have CES and TENS units. The one Dr. Braverman uses is pretty simple. It's about the size of a pack of cigerettes and uses one 9v battery. I think it only has the one .5 Hz frequency for delta wave generation. Some of the fancier models have a couple of different frequencies. But for sleep it's definitely supposed to have that .5 Hz frequency. There's a dial to adjust the strength of the current and a little indicator light and that's pretty much it. His unit uses the sticky pads whereas some of the others use ear clips. They all may be able to use either i'm not sure. There's some controversy as to which are the best contact points. Braverman seems to think one pad on the forehead and the other on the left wrist is the best placement. That's the way my friend has been using his. I don't know i may just shell out the $300 and get his. Unless i can get the manufacturers name off of the one my friend has and try to get it directly from them. Here's a site i found that sells a few different models from basic to high end. The one on the link looks a lot like the one braverman uses. (Without the Health Pax label of course or the case.) This may be the exact same one. Same price too. I need to find out who the manufacturer is. I'll keep you posted...
