The Evolution of NuCalm® and The Journey to NuCalm® 3.0

A message from Jim Poole, CEO of Solace Lifesciences, the makers of NuCalm® I hope you and yours are healthy, safe, and sane during these unique and uncertain times.  Uncertain appears to be the most appropriate adjective to describe the current state of affairs across the globe… from COVID-19 to economic hardships, to civil unrest […]

NuCalm Neuroacoustics: Lowering Stress By Lowering Brain Waves

NuCalm Neuroacoustic Software uses neurophysiology, biochemistry and physics to entrain brainwaves to a frequency that promotes deep relaxation and calm. Each brainwave frequency is associated with a certain state of being: Gamma brain waves (25-100 Hz per second) with high levels of cognitive functioning; Beta waves (13-30 Hz) with day-to-day wakefulness; Alpha waves (7-13 Hz) […]

Autonomic Nervous System balance: your key to a balanced life.

Lesson One Autonomic Nervous System balance: your key to a balanced life. The Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) impacts nearly every aspect of our physiology: heart rate, sleep, digestion, mental acuity, healing ability, to name but a few. It consists of two branches: the Sympathetic, or “Fight-or-Flight” Response; and the Parasympathetic, or “Rest and Repair” Response. […]

Performance and Recovery – and how NuCalm optimizes each.

NuCalm® confers several key benefits before, during, and after a workout, competition, or presentation. Taken together, they enable you to stay at the top of your game, whether on the field or in the boardroom. Consider it your unfair advantage. Using NuCalm® before an event provides mental clarity and neuromuscular release: A NuCalm® session an […]

The science of sleep – and how it informs NuCalm technology.

The main chemical messenger responsible for inhibiting neural activity goes by the acronym GABA. Working in tandem with serotonin and melatonin, GABA transitions the brain and body from an aroused state to a relaxed state. The NuCalm® Biosignal Processing Disc works by emitting electromagnetic frequencies that activate GABA receptors in the body, thereby slowing its […]

Cognitive Performance – and the crucial role stress plays.

Cognitive performance typically declines with age. Brain structures associated with memory naturally shrink as we get older. While part of this decline may be inevitable, preventable factors such as chronic stress and poor sleep accelerate it. Elevated cortisol levels and a glandular dysfunction are each a consequence of chronic stress. Studies suggest both are associated […]

Meditation vs. NuCalm: years of discipline vs. minutes a day.

Meditation’s many health benefits are well established: less anxiety and stress, lowered blood pressure and heart rate, and more mindfulness, to name a few. But quieting the runaway mind is time-consuming and difficult for many practitioners. It requires long-term commitment, endless discipline, and constant vigilance. NuCalm® is specifically designed to overcome these obstacles – with […]

NuCalm Biosignal Processing: your best first step to restoration.

As its name suggests, the NuCalm® Biosignal Processing Disc (BPD) signals the body to initiate the NuCalm® relaxation process. It does this by telling it to release the neurotransmitter GABA, a naturally-occurring chemical messenger that counteracts the damaging effect of the stress hormones adrenaline and cortisol.   NuCalm® Biosignaling absorbs better than supplements. Because oral […]
