How the CES Ultra Device Fixed my Anxiety Problem 

 2020: The Beginning of my Anxiety Problem

2020 was a tough year for me, as it was for so many people. I had never struggled with my mental health much before, but in July of 2020, I felt myself spiraling. Wired. I felt hyperaware of everything going on in the world, and everything happening in my own life. Sure, I was a little nervous about COVID, but it was so much more than that. I was nervous about how the world was changing, and how it would affect me. Nervous about my social life, my job, my finances, and whether my little family would pull through the crisis and come out the other side.

 I felt myself becoming consumed by this anxiety problem. It wasn’t a little problem—it was a sickness that was taking over my identity and clouding my view of the world. It felt impossible to look past it, and I wondered if I’d ever feel like myself again.

If you can relate to that feeling, you need to keep reading, because I’m going to share my story—my unbelievable story of how a CES device (the CES Ultra, to be specific) fixed my anxiety problem and gave me my life back.

I Can’t Sleep – Like, Literally.

It all started with trouble sleeping. Sure, I was burdened with a heavy load of worries, but who wasn’t? It was 2020 and the world was exploding with uncertainty. The “new normal” wasn’t fun, but I was handling it okay—until the insomnia hit. Suddenly I was having enormous difficulty getting any sleep. At first it was just one night, then it was one week. I was laying awake for hours every night, watching the clock turn from 1:00 AM, to 2:00 AM, to 5:00 AM.Some nights I didn’t sleep at all. This went on for weeks on end.

What blew me away was the physical symptoms and sensations of anxiety. The racing heart. The rushing and flushing of adrenaline. The shaking. The nausea. The feeling of impending doom. The restlessness and inability to sit still. If you’ve experienced anxiety before, you know what I’m talking about.

I’d get up in the morning after a sleepless night and feel like there was no possible way I could face the coming day. My stomach was tied up into knots. How could I focus on my work when I honestly felt like I was going insane? Was it possible for a person to DIE from lack of sleep? There were moments I truly felt like I was going to die. I was barely getting through my days. I called out of work, I spent almost every waking moment crying, and I could barely eat. Days were spent worrying about whether I would be able to sleep that night. I was trying everything— from meditation, to hot baths, to sleep hygiene, to cognitive behavioral therapy, to sleeping pills, to blue light blocking glasses. Nothing offered relief.

Insomnia and Anxiety: A Vicious Cycle

The insomnia was feeding the anxiety, and the anxiety was feeding the insomnia. As the evening hours approached, the anxiety would peak, and I would anticipate getting into bed with dread. Sleep was suddenly the most stressful part of my life.

I no longer wanted to get pregnant and have a child (something I had dreamt of for years, which my husband and I had been planning on very soon). For the first time in my life, cooking or eating were meaningless chores. I thought I would die any day. I could see no future for myself. Ultimately, I began to disassociate from my reality.

Even though I am generally very hesitant to use medication, I was about ready to go to the doctor for Benzodiazepines (pharmaceutical anxiety medicine.) I thought if I could just relax enough, I might be able to get some sleep. This was against my very nature; I’d always believed in and relied on natural methods above medication. I felt like I was betraying myself.

The Sleep Machine

At the eleventh hour, a very unexpected solution fell into my lap. My Dad, who is a chiropractor, acupuncturist, and business owner, suddenly remembered an old, clunky device that he’d put away in a drawer for years. He’d learned about it in school and used to offer it to us kids when we had trouble sleeping. We called it “the sleep machine.”

I was skeptical as he fished it out from deep within a drawer. I saw the tangle of wires and clips, and a peculiar little white box that read “CES Ultra.” My Dad assured me that he had used it plenty of times himself, that it was perfectly safe, and that it always helped him sleep. He also mentioned he’d read lots of studies touting the benefits of CES therapy for anxiety, too.

I asked him how it worked. He explained that I simply needed to clip the clips onto my ears and turn the device on. It would deliver a gentle “micro” current of electricity through my brain to help balance neurotransmitters. He explained that there was a lot of research backing this device up, and it could actually get to the root of my anxiety and my trouble sleeping. It would break the detrimental cycle I’d fallen into and restore healthy and functional patterns. My Dad is a doctor and a really smart guy, so I trusted him that the device could help —but I didn’t want to hope too hard. I’d already tried a lot of things without relief.

I figured this little box might help me sleep better within a few weeks, so I committed to trying it. What happened next changed my life.

The Fog Begins to Clear

That day, I spent about an hour and a half hooked up to the CES Ultra device—about 45 minutes in the late morning, and 45 minutes in the early evening. I didn’t notice any immediate differences but I knew I needed to give this therapy a good college try. What did I have to lose? It was painless, extremely easy to use, free, and I didn’t notice any side effects at all.

That night my sleep was marginally better at best. I fell asleep a little bit faster (as in, I only spent 5 hours laying anxiously awake instead of 7) and I may have squeezed in an extra 30 minutes of total sleep time. About as much as I expected.

However, there was one rather unexpected change that I noticed almost immediately upon awakening the next morning. I didn’t feel anxious.

There was no knot in my stomach. No nausea. In fact, I had quite an appetite. My thoughts felt a little calmer and clearer. It was as if a tiny ray of sunshine was peeking out from behind a heavy cloud of fog.

Learning to Talk Myself Down

Throughout the day, I felt my thoughts begin to ramp up into the same circular, toxic patterns that had been plaguing me for weeks—but that was where it ended. The thoughts came, and they went, without bringing any physical sensations. I didn’t feel the rushing energy, or the pounding heart. The sense of doom and the disassociation from my reality had disappeared, too. I was able to experience those thoughts, notice them, even journal about them, without letting them take control. And then I was able to rationalize, replacing those negative thoughts with more positive ones. I had learned this technique through cognitive behavioral therapy, but I hadn’t been able to really use it yet because I was so entrenched in the physical anxiety symptoms that had been torturing me.

Now that I had an edge, I could use the coping skills I had been learning about. I started to walk, meditate, and journal. Slowly, I fleshed out my diet, thanks to the renewed appetite, and I started to enjoy food again. I read books about anxiety and insomnia so that I could educate myself about what I was really experiencing. The fog continued to lift.

I used CES Ultra consistently for a week. Every time I felt anxiety start to creep in, I’d use my coping strategies and hook up the CES. Each night, I lay awake for less and less time and with less and less anxiety as I waited for sleep to befall me. Slowly but surely, night by night, I slept a little longer, a little more deeply, and felt a little more rested each morning.

By the end of the first week, I was able to get about 7 hours of sleep again, if I spent enough time in bed. This was beyond my wildest hopes.

Becoming Myself Again

In one month of religiously using the CES Ultra, I went from feeling like my world was ending and I was literally about to die, to feeling almost myself again. I went back to work and started cooking again. I got dressed each morning and did my hair and make up. My relationships brought me joy once more. I didn’t spend every waking moment crying anymore—in fact, most days, I didn’t cry at all. I stopped fearing nighttime. In fact, I actually came to love and cherish those quiet hours of reflective time. I slowly reconnected with my reality. And, most importantly, I believed once more that I would be able to fully heal.

My ability to sleep steadily returned. Now, I only experienced the occasional ‘off’ night. I was able to go on a trip to the Oregon Coast, leaving behind the crutch of my home and my own bed, which had become my safe place. I still worried a little bit about my sleep, but I was able to use logic and faith to overcome those worries without spiraling.The physical anxiety was almost completely gone. It would start to creep in when I was stressed out or extra tired, but CES helped me sidestep it and move on every single time.

My Life Today

3 months after CES, I was able to conceive a child, sustain a healthy pregnancy, and give birth to a beautiful and healthy baby girl at home. I didn’t experience anxiety during pregnancy or in 34 hours of unmedicated labor—something I attribute fully to my use of the CES.

For me, CES was the missing link that reset the physical patterns of imbalance and stress in my nervous system. Once those patterns in my brain were reset, I could use mental and spiritual coping strategies. I needed that multifaceted approach of physical, mental, and spiritual healing to overcome this trial. I Without CES, I believe it would have taken many more months, possibly even years, for me to heal. My life today would look very different indeed without this peculiar and wonderful little white box.

Today, even though I no longer consider myself to have anxiety or insomnia, I take CES with me everywhere I go. It’s a wonderful security blanket. Extremely small and portable, easy to use, and totally rock solid. I’ve thrown this device in all manner of bags and pockets and I swear, you couldn’t break it if you tried. After years of use in my family’s home and close to 10 years in a drawer, it continues to serve me well.

A Message for The Anxiety or Insomnia Sufferer

CES made such a difference for me that I convinced my Dad to start selling it in his small business. I knew it could change the lives of so many people, especially in the aftermath of COVID, and it has. Since we started selling CES, we have heard incredible stories from hundreds of people about their own healing, or the healing of a loved one—even when nothing else worked and they felt all hope was lost.

If you struggle with anxiety or insomnia (or both, like I did) I just want you to know that you’re not alone. I’ve been there—in the very depths of despair, feeling like my life would never be my own again.

But guess what? Your life IS your own, and there IS hope. You will not always feel this way. It gets better. There is life after severe anxiety and insomnia, and it’s a beautiful life full of love and light. I want that life for you.

Try CES For Yourself

I wish I could shout my story from the rooftops so that everyone who has every had anxiety or depression or insomnia or even just feels stressed out or a little blue would try the CES Ultra. You can even try it for 60 days and get your money back if it doesn’t help you (but I really think it will.)
