Meet NuCalm, The world’s first clinically proven neuroscience technology that relieves chronic stress at the midbrain level, and helps you make better decisions
Americans are more stressed than they were in the 90s. New research published in February examined the impact of stress on people who are middle age. The new paper, which was published in the journal American Psychologist, Penn State researchers found a stark increase in day-to-day stress among people from 45 to 64 years old in the 2010s compared to the 1990s.
Another study found that “more than half of Americans say they fight with friends and loved ones because of stress, and more than 70% say they experience real physical and emotional symptoms from it.”
So, what causes stress? There are so many reasons for stress. But most experts agreed that not having much or any control over the outcome of a situation, having responsibilities that you’re finding overwhelming, among others, are the major causes of stress.
Today, there are so many ways to relieve stress, including getting more physical activity, a healthy diet, minimizing phone use and screen time, and many others. However, one startup thinks there is a better way to solve the stress problem–starting with the brain.
Enter Solace Lifesciences, a Wilmington, Delaware-based neuroscience tech startup and innovator in solving chronic stress at the midbrain level. Unlike the current conventional approaches, Solace has pioneered the use of multiple technologies to naturally guide the brain and body to transition from a state of high stress, fear, and anxiety, to a state of deep calm and relaxation within minutes, without drugs.
In 2009, we launched NuCalm, the world’s first and only neuroscience technology clinically proven to lower stress and improve sleep quality without drugs. In 2015 the company was awarded a patent for “systems and methods for balancing and maintaining the health of the human autonomic nervous system”. (U.S. Patent Registration No.: 9,079,030).
The NuCalm system uses 4 components to provide a biological mimic of the same neural pathways the body uses to enter the first stage of sleep. This serves to turn off the Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Adrenal Axis and puts the body in a parasympathetic dominant state within minutes without drugs.
Jim Poole, CEO and President of Wilmington, Delaware-based Solace Lifesciences, makers of NuCalm, understands the skepticism of those who laugh at the audacious claim that, for the first time in history, it’s possible to clear the brain of stress.
He says, “The late pioneering neuroscientist Dr. G. Blake Holloway figured out how to control the triggers that lead to common human emotions like fear, stress, anxiety, depression, sleeplessness, and worry. Now, everyone can have the power in the palm of their hand to ‘Own the day’ — to change their mental state on demand. This is the world’s only patented, drug-free technology to balance the autonomic nervous system – with no side effects. It takes effect in minutes and with minimal effort.”
Flipping the switch from stress to rest happens in three simple steps with NuCalm: (1) Apply the NuCalm Biosignal Processing Disc to the left wrist to send signals to activate the brain’s relaxation system, GABA, which slows down adrenaline; (2) Put on an eye mask to slow down visual stimulation; (3) Listen to the patented, clinically-proven neuro acoustic software that paces brainwave function into the recovery and healing zones of alpha and theta brainwaves.
Poole explains, “This is a once-in-a-generation scientific breakthrough that took 32 years of discovery, invention, research, and development. With our patented, clinically proven neuroscience platform you can manage your mental state on-demand to create any physiological outcome you desire; from the deepest levels of sleep to recovery and restoration to the highest levels of intense, mistake-free focus. At your will, you simply dial up or dial down your brainwave frequency, and the power of the neuro acoustic software ensures a predictable outcome every time you use it.”
NuCalm tunes your brain wave frequencies to meet the day’s challenges, predictably and effortlessly, using a choice of three settings to create your desired mental state: Ignite Warrior Brain, which create high-intensity, mistake-free focus; instead of caffeine, NuCalm, which lower stress, faster recovery, reclaim emotional control (20-30 mins. daily) and DEEP SLEEP, that gets to sleep faster and deeper without drugs or side effects
In the last 20 years, NuCalm has proven itself in a wide range of real-world uses — including two million surgical procedures; leading doctors and research scientists; pilots; professional and Olympic athletes; the U.S. military (Navy Seals, Special Forces, Air Force Special Operations Command, Border Patrol); military veterans; the FBI; cancer patients; celebrities; and business leaders.
NuCalm consists of four different techniques that combine to stimulate the body’s natural relaxation pathways. The first is the administration of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) through a nutrient supplement or a topical cream. GABA is the body’s natural relaxation chemical. When GABA works on your brain, it shuts down activities in preparation for sleep.
Normally when you’re stressed, your body resists GABA, only taking it up in small amounts. But with the cranial electrotherapy stimulation (CES) device, the GABA receptors are more open. The CES also stimulates your brain to produce serotonin, another important sleep regulator chemical.
NuCalm uses headphones to deliver music that contains binaural beats–different rhythmic signals in each ear–which helps change your brainwaves from the rapid speeds of an anxious brain to the slower speeds at the edge of sleep.
Light-blocking glasses further help your body establish that it should relax. The combination of these four components provides a fully immersive experience, erasing stress and anxiety to achieve a deep level of calm within minutes.
Today, NuCalm is used by millions of people. One of the users is Brooke Burke, actress, model, fitness guru, mother of four. The Dancing with the Stars host says: “Being so mindful of my health, I’m always looking for the ‘feel good,’ With NuCalm, it’s easy to carve out 20 minutes – an absolute escape. I don’t get the science, but I never want my sessions to end!”
