Since I was very young, I have struggled with a consistent, underlying feeling of anxiety. The nervous feeling was a part of my daily reality and, as I entered adulthood, I realized that it was increasingly inhibiting me and stealing joy from my life.
I went on medication for a time, tried natural remedies here and there, but mostly just learned to manage it as best I could, accepting it as “my normal.”
At a recent appointment at IFM, I mentioned that I had anxiety and, not only were Sara and Kara’s responses compassionate and caring, the discussed with me a variety of treatment options that might help, one of which was Alpha-Stim therapy. I had never heard of it, so I decided to try it and, 40 minutes later, I could not believe the difference in how I felt! I went from feeling in complete fight or flight mode to relaxed, calm, and anxiety-free.
I used the Alpha-Stim device for 30 days in a row and was so impressed with how much it made me feel not only calm and relaxed, but how much better I slept at night. I don’t have the consistent underlying feeling of anxiety all day every day now, and I also love that when I feel anxiety coming on, I can hook up the device and get on-the-spot relief!
I am so thankful that IFM introduced me to this non-invasive, cutting edge technology that is helping me live my best life. Thanks, Integrative Family Medicine of Iowa!--C.A.
