“A New Lease on Life”: Alpha-Stim Brings Relief to Veteran After Years of Suffering

Our nation’s Service Members put everything on the line when they step into their uniforms. These selfless men and women understand that they may face grave danger during their service, yet they commit to serve and protect their country anyway.

It’s why when we receive letters from Veterans and Service Members using Alpha-Stim, we are proud to know we are providing a drug-free option that allows them to live their lives without the risk of addiction or lasting side effects.

Recently, we received a heartfelt letter from veteran Katjia Bagnell recounting her struggles with pain, anxiety, insomnia, and depression* that resulted from combat-related injuries. Though it was heartbreaking to hear that she suffered for so long, we were elated to hear that she has now found relief with her Alpha-Stim M. 

*FDA cleared for anxiety, insomnia, and pain only, with approval for depression outside of the United States.


In her own words, here is her story:


“My name is Katjia Bagnell and I’m an American Veteran of foreign and American wars. I was injured and I have been in pain from the top of my head to the bottom of my toes. For several years, I’ve been in and out of wheelchairs and walkers.

I have severe bilateral damage to my SI joints, hips, and pelvic region. I have cervical, shoulder, and cranial damage, and traumatic brain injury. I have seizures. I have fatigue, depression, panic disorder, and anxiety disorder.

I have pain constantly – 24/7.

At 49 years old, I went to my doctor. It was either put a bullet in my head or go on pain medication after refusing it for a very long time. And I told her I wanted to go on pain medication.

She came up with the Alpha-Stim M as a solution. Within three weeks, I was out of the wheelchair. I’m sleeping through the night. I can manage the pain. I feel like I have enough energy to walk around and not feel like I’m dying.

For my panic disorder and my anxiety disorder, which I was on [medication] for, I no longer take the medication.

I plan on getting off the antidepressants when I see my psychiatrist, as my depression has disappeared. Due to the Alpha-Stim, my affect has improved 100% and my pain which was over a 10 on a daily basis has gone down to zero.

I cannot say enough about the Alpha-Stim. It has changed my life. It has given me a new lease on life and a new outlook.”


We are honored to have been able to bring life-changing results to Katjia, and all the other Veterans and Service Members who have discovered the benefits of Alpha-Stim.


Alpha-Stim for Veterans and Service Members

Many veterans are frustrated with standard treatments for their anxiety, insomnia, and pain. This is often due to unpleasant side effects, the risk of addiction from prescription medications, or the potential negative impact on their life and/or careers. 

Alpha-Stim is a handheld, prescription medical device that is FDA-cleared to treat pain, anxiety, and insomnia. It is FDA-cleared for anxiety, insomnia, and pain only, with approval for depression outside of the United States.
