I got noticable feeling back in my feet with the very first treatment. I was actually at a conference and was introduced to Alpha Stim at an exhibit. They gave me a treatment then and there and a bit of educational information. It was quite impressive.
I still have some numbness, I am not sure if I could ever expect a cure. but my doctors told me it was PERMANENT nerve damage from my diabetes. I was told that I MIGHT have some improvement after my gastric bypass and subsequent weight loss with brought my blood sugar under control. But I did NOT see any improvement after the 100 lb. plus weight loss.
So, this is why the Alpha Stim was so impressive to me, and gave me hope that I could get some feeling back in my feet. The treatments are easy to do at home.
Hope this info is helpful to you.
Maybe the Alpha Stim ladies will reply too and comment on whether or not THEY have seen the treatment resolve nerve damage in some of their patients. I suppose everyone will have different successes depending on severity etc.
