Living through the uncertainties of the coronavirus pandemic is raising anxiety levels, especially among people sheltering in place. This is a new experience for people who do not suffer from anxiety disorders under normal circumstances. Their anxiety can act as an innate tool to aid in adapting to situations or circumstances, preparing them to move forward in an appropriate manner. For people who suffer from anxiety disorders even in the best of times, the current pandemic adds layers of stress, thus making coping with anxiety extremely difficult.

Coping with Anxiety Strengthens You and Your Social Network

Increased stress and anxiety during an infectious disease outbreak can include:

  • Fear and worry about your own health and the health of your friends and loved ones
  • Changes in sleep and eating patterns
  • Difficulty sleeping (insomnia) or concentrating
  • Worsening of chronic health problems
  • Worsening of mental health conditions such as anxiety, depression and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Increased use of alcohol, or other drugs.

The CES Ultra is a U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulated medical device with allowable medical claims for anxiety, depression and insomnia. As such, the CES Ultra is an ideal method of treatment (modality) for our current shelter in place experience.

How you respond to the outbreak can depend on your background, the things that make you different from other people, and the community in which you live. People who might respond more strongly to the stress of a crisis include:

  • Older people and people with chronic diseases who are at higher risk for severe illnesses from COVID-19
  • Children and teens
  • People who are helping with the response to COVID-19, such as doctors, nurses, other health care providers, and first responders
  • People with pre-existing mental health conditions including PTSD, Obsessive–Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Chronic Anxiety and problems with substance use.

Having the right information is imperative for peace of mind and taking proper action. Passing useful information to those we meet can be helpful in calming some of the fears and anxiety.

Great Uncertainty Heightens Fear and Anxiety

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, we find ourselves in a position of great uncertainty. Physical isolation, changing facts and financial insecurity heighten fear and anxiety.

Physical Isolation (Quarantine)

Human beings are social creatures. For the majority of us, isolating from friends, family and the rest of our fellow travelers is contrary to who and how we are. This fact alone can make physical isolation mentally challenging, even for the most stable among us. Physical isolation becomes precarious for people with pre-existing physical or mental challenges. Not knowing how long we will need to maintain our status of relative quarantine adds to the angst of the situation for all of us.

The Constant Changing Facts of the Illness

Every week the experts are giving us new and different information about the virus itself. The range of possible COVID-19 symptoms is ever widening, making it more difficult to identify treatments.

The fact that the science on COVID-19 is unknown makes the situation even more difficult for the average person to understand. It is unnerving to know that the best minds on our planet have yet to identify solid facts.

Financial Insecurity

With no immediate end to the pandemic in sight and the world economy halted, people naturally are concerned about their financial security. The consequences already have become dire for some people. Twenty-six million people have lost jobs, many living a day-to-day existence. Having no idea what will come next or when things will begin to improve can lead one’s mind to worst possible financial scenarios.

Global Market place recognizes Cranial Electrotherapy devices

ces-global-market

With the increasingly stressful lifestyle there is also rise in other types of disorders such as anxiety and sleep disorders. With the lack of sufficient treatments that address these disorders, cranial electrotherapy stimulation comes as an innovative and required treatment.

Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation (CES) device is a small device that stimulates the cranium and brain with a current less than 4 mA, which cannot be sensed by the patient. The cranial electrotherapy stimulation is approved by the FDA for the treatment of insomnia, depression and anxiety. Besides, it has potential application in the treatment of a number of disorders such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHA), obsessive-compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), cognitive dysfunction, traumatic brain injury, pain, enhancing attention and concentration, and for reducing assaultive behavior.

A relatively large number of the population across the globe is diagnosed with such disorders. A significant portion of the U.S. population is affected by poor mental health, which leads to development of various kinds of mental health disorders. The treatment method is complementary and an alternative of medicine. There are large number of clinical trials currently active, which have proved the CES device as an effective treatment method. For an instance, as of 2017 the Sham Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation by Electromedical Products International Inc. is under clinical trial and is currently recruiting candidates for the same.

The increasing number of cases of poor mental health with the development of disorders such as depression, anxiety and other sleep disorders is driving the growth of the market. Although animal studies have proved this device to be effective, the adoption of these devices is affected due to lack of strong evidence in humans proving the efficacy of the devices in all or most of the cases. However, there are a number of new clinical trials in the recruiting stage, which may help fill the gap in the market.

Use of Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation in Hospitals and the Growing Demand of Wearable Type of Devices
There are various types of cranial electrotherapy stimulator devices and they can be broadly classified based on the type of electrode placement, such as invasive or transcranial and non-invasive or wearable. The wearable type is the dominant segment in the market. The wearable type device is user-friendly and does not requires surgical insertion of the electrode. Most of the FDA-approved devices are suitable for the treatment of insomnia, depression and anxiety, as the prevalence of these disorders is increasing, in which depression is the most common and growing disorder in the young population. Since most of these devices are available only in prescribed hospitals and mental health clinics, they have a large scope as end-use segments in the market.

Regional Market Outlook

North America has a large number of mental health cases, which has increased the use of the device in the region. Also, growing awareness regarding the treatment of mental health along with technological advancements make North America a potential market for electrotherapy stimulation devices. Likewise, growing awareness in other regions such as Asia Pacific, there is a scope for rapid development in the region.


There are three major cranial electrotherapy stimulation devices, namely the CES Ultra by Neuro-fitnesss LLC, Alpha-Stim M and the Alpha-Stim AID by Electromedical Products International (EPI), and the Fisher-Wallace Simulator. Other FDA-approved products include BR-2 Biorest (Biorest Inc), Biotron 18 (Biotronics Corp), Elexoma Medic (Redplane AG), FM 10/C (Johari Digital Healthcare Ltd.), and HP-1 Heathpax or Nurtipax (Health Directions Inc), among others.

Chionophobia and how to cope with it

Fresh, Deep Snow Blanketing A Home, Yard And Evergreen Trees

Chionophobia is defined as an intense fear of snow. As in most phobias, Chionophobia is driven by anxiety and categorized as a Natural Environment Phobia. According to a study carried out by the American Meteorological Society, Chionophobia is the second most prevalent Natural Environment Phobia subtype.

The name originates from Greek chion meaning snow and phobia meaning fear, aversion or dread. People with Chionophobia often understand that their fear is unfounded. Regardless of logic, those who suffer are unable to halt its symptoms.

Overview

Chionophobia is not just a dislike of snow or a rational fear of severe weather forecasts. It incorporates an irrational fear of snow that is typically linked to a fear of bodily harm or death. Though phobias can and do manifest themselves differently in different people’s experiences, there are typically two primary fears behind Chionophobia: the fear of becoming snowbound and the fear of being stranded in snow.

Chionophobia Symptoms

Like all phobias, Chionophobia can bring rise to a variety of symptoms, most commonly:

  • Paying undue attention to weather reports
  • Refusing to leave home during snowy weather
  • Experiencing panic attacks.

For people with true Chionophobia, the mere forecast of a winter storm or snowfall can induce the physiological symptoms of fear, anxiety-like cold sweats, panic attacks, and unrealistic feelings of doom.

Coping With Chionophobia

The best methods for coping with the fear of snow depend on the severity and the level of impact that the fear has on one’s life. Sufferers of Chionophobia often find that becoming educated about different types of snow and their effects on local conditions can calm their fears. Others find that gradual exposure to winter activities can be helpful. Living with Chionophobia is difficult. Friends and family are often non-empathetic to the irrationality of it’s effects. However, for the phobic it is real and serious phobia that interferes with everyday life.

If the associated fear were to become severe or life-limiting, it is wise to seek the guidance of a trained mental health professional. Winter weather is a fact of life. With proper assistance and the right tools, symptoms of Chionophobia can be lessened, thus improving one’s quality of life.

When thoughts of an oncoming storm begin to make one anxious, the progression of the anxiety can be halted through the use of Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation (CES). CES works by using a light electrical frequency for balancing neuro-chemistry. Some CES users experience relief immediately during the course of treatment, particularly if use has gone on daily for a week or so. CES results are accumulative and lasting.

The effect of CES use differs from pharmaceutical treatments in that users report not only being more relaxed but that their minds seem more alert and clear. Unlike drugs, CES has no negative side effects and it is non-addictive. CES can be used safely as often as you like.

Sarah, a seventeen year old female in the eleventh grade, states “Now I take more time to think about things (i.e. vocabulary words) and I spend more time and take more steps to remember them than before”. She is also reported to take more time to insure she has followed all the necessary steps and test taking skills in biology and history are improved in her improved ability to completely read questions and formulating better thought out written answers.

She reports wearing the device while taking tests “It relaxed me. I remember coming into the class with a headache. By the time I finished the test the headache was gone.”

After working daily with an educational therapist for fifteen days with application of the CES device for at least
forty-five minutes daily she was successful for the first time in memorizing two pages of lines in a skit, demonstrated improved math skills and comprehension of biology concepts. Sarah states that she would not have been able to accomplish this without the use of the device. Self confidence also improved and fear of test taking was greatly decreased if not eliminated. Her grades are now in the B range where formerly they were in the D to F range. intervention was also associated with the cessation of a difficult premenstrual tension syndrome. She reports no further menstrual cramps since using the device and states “I am not witchy anymore” during her menstrual periods. She states that she is no longer bothered by the chronic fatigue that so dramatically affected her earlier learning efforts.
