From now on, stress is a choice.
Nucalm was originally created to support people with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and addictive disease.
The NuCalm patented technology addresses the brain circuitry in the limbic system, the hypothalamus and the brainstem responsible for producing stress and anxiety. NuCalm works specifically on the body’s inhibitory system, the GABAergic system. This device is bio-mimetic in that it resets the naturally occurring negative feedback loop of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis, which when properly functioning is supposed to shut off and stop releasing cortisol from the adrenal glands after the end of a stressful event.
NuCalm is comprised of three discrete steps that work together to entrain brainwaves to the frequency of the first stages of sleep and create parasympathetic nervous system dominance. People in this state are physically unable to have an anxious response. Within moments of application, users will begin to feel relief from the ‘fight-or-flight’ sympathetic nervous system response and their stress hormone (cortisol) levels will begin to decline as the HPA axis is inhibited.
First, let’s look at the difference between human stress vs the stress of other animals – psychological stress vs. physical stress. A real stressor (a short-term physical danger) activates a survival stress response. This short-term stress response results in an adrenaline “rush”, resulting in high energy, increased blood pressure, intensified learning & memory; it also shuts off all non-essential systems, such as digestion, reproductive and growth systems, thus allowing your body to maximize your chances of survival. Once the physical threat is gone, all systems are quickly restored to normal working function.
Similarly, psychological stress elicits the same responses. Making your mortgage payment, going through a divorce, juggling your family, job and kids schedules, are all chronic, psychological stresses only created by humans. This results in an unreal and chronic stress response, triggering an unnecessary release of stress hormones, such as cortisol and adrenaline. A constant state of psychological stress, often manifested by a lack of sleep, can result in a multitude of health issues (suppressed immune system, slowed metabolism, high blood pressure, etc.). This is just “a day in the life…” to us, but comes with dire physiological, neurological and biochemical consequences. Simply put, the evolution of the human body has not yet caught up to our new age lifestyle.
Meet NuCalm: high-tech, new age demands high-tech, new age stress relief.
NuCalm is a relaxing experience, there are three pieces involved in it. There is a sleep mask, to get rid of any light. A disc that goes on your wrist in order to activate the parasympathetic nervous system and calm your body. And then the last piece is a NuCalm audio soundtrack, the world’s most sophisticated proprietary neuroacoustic software to oscillate brain wave function between deep relaxation and recovery.The combination of these three components provides a fully immersive experience, erasing stress and anxiety to achieve a deep level of calm.
