Breaking New Ground
“If at first the idea is not absurd, then there is no hope for it.”
In 2009, we launched our flagship product, NuCalm® to the medical industry. We focused on helping dental practices provide a safer way to manage patient stress and anxiety. The results were profound for clinicians, their teams, and their patients.
A record of success:
- Over 2 million dental surgeries without a single reported adverse reaction
- 98% of dental patients surveyed would recommend NuCalm to friends and family (n = 7,144 subjects)
- Longest surgical event was 7 hours and forty minutes
- Thousands of dentists replaced IV sedation, oral conscious sedation, and nitrous oxide use with NuCalm

What the Experts Say About NuCalm
“In our study of subjects using NuCalm, we observed that these subjects experience a rapid decrease in heart rate and respiration rate while exhibiting an increase in vagal tone. These physiological biomarkers are consistent with deep meditation and illustrative of the rapid onset of parasympathetic nervous system dominance created by NuCalm. Our results indicate that the NuCalm system is a powerful tool for stress intervention and sleep quality improvement.”

“I see everybody at different stages of cancer but focus on people with breast cancer. I see a lot of the newly diagnosed patients, so they have either been to the surgeon, or I work them up, and I’m going to be the major captain for their care. My patients will get chemotherapy, they’ll get radiation therapy, and sometimes get anti-estrogen therapies.
You have to understand, nobody likes to come see me, the oncologist. They don’t want to, because everyone’s afraid that “is she going to find something? Are my labs going to be normal?” So, people start having anxiety before coming to see me. Even if they are in remission, there’s still a lot of underlying fear. According to my patients, their anxiety starts, maybe a week to a month before coming in for their appointment.
There is a tremendous amount of stress. How my patients experience their stress varies… either it starts low and escalates before the visit, or sometimes it’s just constantly there until the visit is over. Everybody is affected by cancer. Not only the patient, but whomever the patient’s living with - their spouse; their children. The person with cancer is not singled out. Cancer affects the entire family or the entire support system of that person.
What’s interesting about somebody that’s dealing with a serious illness, cancer or whatever, they are under, not only acute stress (the fight-or-flight response), but they’re also under chronic stress. That fear and thought about cancer never really leaves them. We know that prolonged chronic stress wears down their immune system, all of their systems, to put it bluntly. To alleviate some of that chronic stress with the NuCalm system will help them. NuCalm is a way of getting them into a relaxed state, and we know they’re going to get benefits from it. Patients who are dealing with cancer and going through chemotherapy, are forced to deal with a myriad of changes. When someone’s going through chemotherapy, it would be great for him or her to experience a forced ‘time out’ from his or her reality with NuCalm. Whether or not we’re talking about breast cancer, prostate cancer, lung or colon cancer it doesn’t really matter. All these people are undergoing the same physiological stress, so certainly NuCalm will help anybody. It doesn’t matter the type of cancer.”

“The ability of NuCalm to reduce sympathetic discharge, and its impact on the autonomic nervous system, is clearly a freestanding and noteworthy contribution to society and our high-paced, stress-filled lives. We know that every organ system in the human body is disturbed when sympathetic tone predominates excessively and chronically. It, therefore, seems logical to run with the research already in place and start measuring the possible reduction of predictable organ and systemic dysfunction with long-term NuCalm use. I believe with using NuCalm, three weeks of reduced sympathetic discharge should make significant improvements to the white blood cell population’s ability to process foreign invaders in the lymph nodes. We have all experienced the sore throat and generally run-down feeling one can get after a few nights of bad sleep. The sympathetic discharge associated with sleep deprivation and long working hours under stress allows opportunistic viruses and bacteria to colonize and challenge our system.
When confronted with chronic inflammatory conditions, cancer, bacterial/viral infections, and other assaults to homeostasis, it becomes critical to optimize the immune system. I can imagine a myriad of uses for NuCalm to demonstrate the immune-boosting role of shifting to a parasympathetic-dominated tone.”

“As a 26-year veteran of the Special Operations community, and current program manager for the Human Performance Optimization (HPO) programs in my enterprise, I provide my highest endorsement for NuCalm as a technology and resource. NuCalm has unequivocally been one of the most effective stress mitigation, sleep improvement, and general wellness ‘recovery modalities’ we offer to our population. As an enhancing tool to our HPO programs it has met with resounding-positive feedback and almost immediate results. I am hard pressed to identify any other device, gear, or similar system in this price range that offers the same. Jim Poole and his team of unparalleled experts have truly tapped into an amazing and effective application for the science of binaural/neuroacoustic software therapy, and beyond, through their work in this field and with NuCalm.”

"In America, we are free because of the brave. And the reason the United States military special operations community is elite is because we have invested more into the operator's mind to ensure we are the most knowledgeable and best prepared warriors on the battlefield. We must always maintain that edge and be able to tap into an even higher gear at a moment's notice.
Operating in a constant state of alert has taken a toll on my mind and body and at 34 years-old, beginning my civilian life, I struggle to down regulate stress and I don't sleep well. In an effort to recover from my life in the military and regain my health, I've tried everything, from Alpha Stim, to neurobiofeedback, to meditation, to apps such as Calm and Headspace.
Nothing has made a positive impact on my stress and sleep until I began using NuCalm. I heard about NuCalm from a former special forces operator and to be honest, it sounded too good to be true. But I've been using NuCalm daily since January 2019 and it has changed my life and brought me back to health. I am more calm, more focused, more patient, less reactive to situational stress and less agitated. I feel like myself again and my family has seen a big difference in my behavior at home. Raising 3 children and trying to assimilate to civilian life, NuCalm doesn't change the challenges I face, it changes how I interpret and respond to the challenges. I feel better, I sleep better, I'm more self-aware, and I'm more confident and optimistic about this next phase of my life."

“Developing a beneficial meditation practice can take countless hours over a period of years. By using NuCalm I can effectively and quickly access a state of mind where I have the ability to respond instead of react. I use NuCalm because I have post traumatic stress. With as little as 20 minutes a day I get to respond to my feelings and thoughts instead of react to them. When I have the ability to respond I can be humble, thoughtful, patient and kind. When I react instead of respond I can be aggressive, irritable and fearful. NuCalm aids me into being the version of myself that is genuine and real. It is who I am without PTS.”

To be awarded a patent, the burden is on the company to prove novelty and efficacy. That is why we spent years working with leading research scientists and experts in the field to evaluate and prove the efficacy of our neuroscience platform.
