NOTE: The CESTa has been discontinued. For an alternative, please consider the OASIS Pro. Our new CESta is a powerful and versatile CES device with 16 preset CES sessions, 1 preset Colloidal Silver session and 19 blank locations for you to create and store your specialized sessions.
The CESta monitors and adjusts the intensity of the stimulation 1000 times per second to ensure consistent and comfortable stimulation. Throughout the entire session, the CESta will check the electrode connections and automatically make the necessary adjustments. All sessions are pre-timed so your CESta will turn off when your session is complete.
The CESta can also be used for Microcurrent-Electrical Therapy (MET), Transcranial DC Stimulation and/or to make colloidal silver (Each requires the purchase of additional hardware and/or software available from Mind Alive Inc.)
Cranio-Electro Stimulation (CES) was developed in the Soviet Union in the late 1940s as a treatment for insomnia and has since been used by millions of people all over the world. Most research over the past 25 years has shown that CES reduces anxiety and improves cognition in recovering drug addicts and alcoholics. Pete Townsend, formerly of the band "The Who", found CES was the most effective treatment for his drug addiction recovery.
Research demonstrates that CES produces a mild stimulation in the hypothalamic area of the brain, resulting in balancing neurotransmitter activity (in particular Beta Endorphin and Norepinephrine). The effects achieved are similar to that of a "jogger's high".
Although electromedicine has been in existence for well over a thousand years, developments in electronics and new research has seen this technology grow at a terrific rate in recent years. Micro-TENS is very different than traditional TENS because Micro-TENS produces its benefits in part on a cellular level. Micro-TENS has longer lasting effects than TENS. Micro-TENS is also commonly referred to as Microcurrent-Electrical Therapy.
The concept of Micro-TENS is based, in part, on Arndt’s Law, which states that weak stimuli excite physiological activity, whereas medium-strength stimuli will encourage it and strong stimuli will suppress it.
It is believed that Micro-TENS delivered at around 500 micro-amps in the 0.5 to 3 Hz range may be most effective for treating pain.
About Transcranial DC Therapy (tDCS)
When a DC current is applied over the scalp with the intention of altering neuronal activity, it is known as transcranial DC stimulation. tDCS is effective in modulating spontaneous neuronal firing. tDCS at intensities of 1 milliamp applied for roughly 10 minutes has been shown to either excite or inhibit the sensori-motor cortex, with the effects lasting over an hour. Excitation is achieved by anodal (+) stimulation, while inhibition is achieved by cathodal (-) stimulation. Anodal stimulation has also been shown to increase both beta and gamma activity in the visual cortex, while cathodal stimulation has decreased beta and gamma activity. Stimulation is generated by putting a wet cloth, cotton ball or sponge on the scalp over the brain region to be treated and a sponge or cotton ball on the shoulder or the face. The tDCS sessions deliver a maximum intensity of 2.35 milliamps at DC. tDCS is being used for the treatment of many conditions, including depression.
CAUTIONS: tDCS is very powerful and if applied improperly, can result in negative side effects. Therefore, the sessions for tDCS will only be released to qualified clinicians.About Colloidal Silver
To make colloidal silver with your CESta, you will need the Colloidal Silver Making Kit (patch cord, silver rods, silver rod holder, plastic spacer and sessions). The CESta provides a constant current output with a maximum of 1.5 milliamps. As a result, it offers a very simple procedure to make high quality colloidal silver.
