This patented, clinically-proven neuroscience technology addresses the brain circuitry in the limbic system, the hypothalamus and the brainstem responsible for activating the stress response. NuCalm works specifically on the body’s inhibitory system, the vagus nerve and the GABAergic system. NuCalm is comprised of three steps that work together to guide brain waves into alpha and theta (just above deep sleep) to create cellular restoration and parasympathetic nervous system dominance. Within moments, you will begin to feel relief from the ‘fight-or-flight’ sympathetic nervous system response and your stress hormone (cortisol) levels will begin to decline as the stress response (HPA axis) is inhibited.
NuCalm solves the riddle of safely and reliably managing stress. NuCalm is the world’s first and only patented neuroscience clinically proven to reduce stress and improve sleep quality without drugs. NuCalm uses state-of-the-art applied neuropsychobiology and neurobioinformatics to mimic the body’s natural experience of slowing brain and body function in preparation for sleep.
NuCalm guides your brain wave function to alpha and theta ranges and suspends you in parasympathetic nervous system dominance – a state of relaxation where you are physically incapable of experiencing stress.
Rapid induction of the parasympathetic dissociative state
Rapid return to a functional state (motor skills, attention, and full cognition) with no lingering negative effects
Sustained, steady parasympathetic dominance throughout the experience
These effects combine to create deep relaxation, a neuromuscular release, and homeostasis.
Stress causes chemical and structural changes in every system in the body:
Development of tumors, cerebral hemorrhages, aneurysms, strokes, dementia, cognitive impairment, depression, memory loss
Constricts arterial system, promotes cardiovascular disease, causes blood pressure and heart rate changes
Release of cortisol and ACTH which stimulates adrenal cortex, exhausts adrenal glands, thyroid malfunction, weight gain, can cause diabetes, decreases immune cell count, can lead to cancer
Nervous stomach, nausea, bleeding ulcers, spastic colon, ulcerative colitis
The psychological impact of stress includes:
Avoiding the midbrain hijack is not a “mind-over-matter” challenge. It’s a much bigger challenge. The limbic system (midbrain region responsible for survival) is over 40 million years evolved. Your frontal lobe (responsible for rational function, behavior control, and emotional regulation) has evolved for over 4 million years. Simply put, your midbrain has a 36-million-year head-start and is superior when it comes to acquiring resources and redirecting biological function when it gets triggered. So, you need to overcome your primitive survival function and refined limbic system to manage stress on your terms. What if there was a way to naturally interrupt the HPA Axis and stop the chemical reaction triggered by your fight-or-flight response?
NuCalm was developed out of necessity. Drugs, alcohol, and pharmaceuticals are very effective at resolving the acute stress response.
The problem with using those modalities is obvious; side effects, addiction, behavioral issues. So how can we rapidly and effectively resolve the stress response without drugs? That was the riddle Dr. Holloway, inventor of NuCalm and accomplished neuroscientist, asked himself decades ago.
Dr. Holloway spent over four decades treating people suffering from acute Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) who often self-medicated with drugs and alcohol. He understood the negative consequences of allowing PTSD to go untreated and how drugs and alcohol may provide short-term relief; however, they have severe negative consequences over time.
To develop a solution that organically diffused the stress response, Dr. Holloway took a systematic approach to the chemical reaction of stress. Over a twenty-year period, Dr. Holloway developed the NuCalm system by using biochemistry and physics to naturally interrupt the stress response and induce parasympathetic nervous system dominance.
NuCalm is comprised of three components that work together to rapidly reduce the adrenaline response in your brain and guide your mind and body to a deeply relaxed state.
NuCalm Neuroacoustic Software
Proprietary neuroacoustic software that paces your brain wave function between alpha and theta frequencies (12Hz-4Hz) – where recovery and restoration naturally occur.
NuCalm Biosignal Processing Disc
All cells of the human body communicate through frequencies. The NuCalm biosignal processing disc delivers the biological signals your body needs to slow down brain activity and prepare for relaxation. This mimics your body’s normal transition from action to idleness and sleep preparation. The NuCalm biosignal processing disc enables the neuroacoustic software to work at maximum efficiency.
NuCalm Light-Blocking Eye Mask
Blocks visual stimulation and maintains the relaxed state.
