The Stimulator may indeed offer the relief from pain it claims to provide, but after seeing the people in these testimonials, one begins to wonder about possible harmful side effects. For example, one woman, perhaps suffering from some kind of Stimulator-induced brain disorder, declares that if she had to give up either her house or her Stimulator, she would give up the house. If it came to that, she reasons, she could always get another house...whereas apparently the makers of the Stimulator only allow you to purchase one. Another possible side effect--the urge to commit extreme acts of violence--is suggested by further testimony from the man who earlier alluded to St. Jude, when he implies that he will shoot anyone who tries to take away his Stimulator.
At this point, fairness forces me to concede that this does indeed sound like a man who has taken control of his life...
Nonetheless, I kept waiting for Lee to get to the information this infomercial contains, but she never does. Instead, she merely calls upon "pain expert" Evel Knievel and "golf legend" Billy Casper to offer celebrity versions of the same superficial testimony the non-famous pain sufferers have already delivered: the Stimulator really works, it's worth every penny you pay for it, and what do you have to lose by trying it? Evel does offer a slight clue about the Stimulator's particulars when he reveals that he is resolutely drug-free, and that because of the Stimulator, he is able to maintain this status and yet be pain-free as well...
So the Stimulator is definitely not a hypodermic needle filled with morphine, although it looks a little bit like a plastic one that might come with a children's toy doctor kit. Alas, that's as in-depth as the program gets; the Stimulator remains shrouded in mystery.
