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) with relaxation and visualization; and Theta waves (4-7 Hz) with deep meditation and the initial stages of sleep.

NuCalm reduces brain waves from the Gamma and Beta ranges (which are sometimes felt as restlessness and anxiety) to the Alpha and Theta ones, mimicking the natural communication process of readying the body for sleep. This leads to neuromuscular release, homeostasis, and feelings of peacefulness – providing the ideal environment for learning, memory consolidation, hormone replenishment, and immune support.

NuCalm software uses two beats to produce one deeply relaxed state.

NuCalm neuroacoustic tracks employ binaural beats that deliver tones at slightly different frequencies to each ear.

The brain processes these as a single tone at a frequency equaling the difference between the original two. It then proceeds to mimic this wavelength, creating a brainwave pattern that provides the ideal recovery zone.

Spending enough time each day in the low-brainwave ranges is essential to overall health. To that end, NuCalm algorithms are specifically engineered to continually challenge the adaptive brain in order to keep it engaged.

Other stress-relief products are designed by audiophiles for mood enhancement, using studio production techniques to which the brain quickly becomes habituated because they are so linear and predictable. NuCalm neuroacoustic beats, by contrast, feature non-linear oscillations, so they will never be rendered ineffective.

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. Only one can be dominant at any given time.

Sympathetic dominance expresses itself as physical and mental stress, parasympathetic dominance as restoration and recovery.

Sufficient time needs to be spent in the latter mode to counteract the damaging effects of the former and thereby achieve overall balance. Enter NuCalm®.

 

NuCalm® balances your ANS. So you can balance competing demands.

NuCalm®’s patented technology is clinically proven to help bring your Autonomic Nervous System into proper balance for optimal recovery and health.

It disarms your stress response naturally by placing you in a state of parasympathetic dominance, giving your mind and body the resiliency they need to perform the tasks and functions that keep you well.

NuCalm® does this by interrupting the production of the stress hormones adrenaline and cortisol. This leads to better sleep, lower blood pressure, strengthened immune function, more emotional stability (hence better choices), and enhanced performance.

Now you can constructively respond to stressful situations, instead of overreacting to them. By spending enough time in the Rest-and-Repair mode, NuCalm® enables you to Own the Day!

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 hour or more before your training session, game, race, or major presentation enables you to ignore distractions and better focus on the task at hand.

How? By placing you into a deeply relaxed state for maximum oxygenation of red blood cells through diaphragmatic breathing. So you can perform under pressure at decisive moments – gracefully.

NuCalm® also relieves the stress that leads to tense muscles, lending them a greater range of motion and, in the case of sports, more force.

 

Maximize your training, minimize your recovery with NuCalm®.

 Whether your training is physical or mental, NuCalm® prepares your brain and nervous system to encode the day’s sessions or lessons in memory, including muscle memory.

It suspends the mind and body in the ideal recovery zone, flushing out lactic acid buildup. And because NuCalm® reduces inflammation, it speeds healing as well as it does recovery.

In clutch situations, pressure tends to rise. Now you can rise to the occasion – with NuCalm® and Own the Day!

The Science of Aging – and how NuCalm helps you do it gracefully.

With all the time and money we spend searching for ways to look younger, it’s easy to overlook the biggest contributing factors in aging: stress and inflammation.

Outward signs of aging – wrinkles, skin spots, graying hair, and the like – are associated with aging cells. And a major contributor to cellular decline is chronic stress.

Studies have demonstrated that high levels of cortisol, a direct result of that stress, are linked with shortened DNA telomeres – the ends of chromosomes that prevent them from deteriorating.

And shortened telomeres have been linked with many physical and neuro-degenerative disorders, including arthritis, heart disease, and depression.

So, it only stands to reason that reducing cortisol would slow the rate at which telomeres shorten and cells age.

And chronic inflammation can be as damaging as chronic stress, especially in the elderly. It has been associated with the development of many age-related diseases: cancer, heart disease, obesity, diabetes, skeletal muscle atrophy, and others.

 

NuCalm® fights age-related stress and inflammation.

NuCalm® combats the two major chronic adversaries of age with one clinically-proven solution: It arrests your body’s stress response and helps control its inflammatory process.

While NuCalm® may not represent the legendary Fountain of Youth, it can be a real-life wellspring – extending, if not the length of your life, then its quality, or “healthspan.”

 

 

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 internal systems and preparing them for deep relaxation and sleep.

Research indicates that NuCalm® provides the equivalent of two hours of deep, restorative sleep in as little as 20 minutes. And restorative sleep is proven to be essential to consolidating brain and muscle memory.

 

How is NuCalm® so restorative? By restoring balance to your systems.

NuCalm® dramatically improves sleep quality by restoring balance to your hormonal levels, autonomic nervous system, and circadian rhythms:

Maintaining the right hormonal balance improves sleep quality and general well-being. NuCalm® restores hormone equilibrium by resetting the hypothalamus, the brain’s hormonal control center.

Restoring Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) balance is essential to your overall health, and sleep is your best opportunity to achieve it. NuCalm® helps balance your ANS by enabling you to spend enough time in the parasympathetic, “rest-and repair” state.

And NuCalm® minimizes the effects of jet lag or an irregular sleep schedule by resetting your biological clock, as well as restoring order to circadian rhythms thrown off by the blue light emitted by high-tech device screens.

By rapidly revitalizing you when sleep-deprived, NuCalm® enables you to resist illness, recover faster and more fully, and summon the energy you need to meet your daily demands and Own the Day!

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 with smaller volumes in the brain’s memory region, the hippocampus, as well as poorer scores in memory tasks performed by adults of a given age.

And stress inhibits blood flow to the frontal cortex, the area responsible for high-order thinking, behavior, and personality.

What’s more, poorer sleep quality, especially as you age, can hinder memory consolidation.

That’s why it behooves you to remember NuCalm®.

 

NuCalm® neuroscience may help slow memory decline.

That cognitive performance is best maintained via a brain-based approach is logical enough.

NuCalm® is clinically proven to reduce stress and improve sleep quality, potentially slowing the most preventable contributing factors in memory decline – and helping to stabilize the aging brain.

 

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 quick-acting, high-tech stress relief ideally suited to our fast-paced, high-tech age.

 

NuCalm® lets you partake of meditation’s benefits – quickly and effortlessly.

NuCalm® enables you to experience many of the benefits of a dedicated meditation practice in as little as 20 minutes a day.

It disables stress and quickly shifts you into a restorative brain wave state, slowing your breathing and heart rate in the process. So your mind can relax, your body can restore, and both can feel more integrated.

Unlike mindfulness and meditation apps on the market, NuCalm® utilizes neuroacoustic software tracks to pace your brain waves from the higher, stress-inducing frequencies to the lower, more calming ones.

The result of this scientific approach is not just greater relaxation, but heightened awareness, intuition, and creativity – benefits which come as something of a revelation to many users.

Achieving mindfulness need not be a lifelong quest. A daily session will suffice. So, stop obsessing and start decompressing – and Own the Day with NuCalm®.

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 or topical GABA supplements do not cross the blood-brain barrier readily, they may have difficulty with absorption.

The NuCalm® BPD, by contrast, is scientifically designed to directly stimulate the production, release, and absorption of GABA – by a process known as “biosignaling.”

When placed on the inside of the left wrist, the NuCalm® disc is activated by the body’s own electromagnetic field (one of several pathways by which cells communicate), and is able to receive its frequencies.

Used in conjunction with NuCalm®’s neuroacoustic tracks, the BPD acts as a catalyst for the NuCalm® relaxation response, transitioning the body from stress to restoration in minutes. It slows brain waves into a deeply relaxed state where rejuvenation and recovery can occur.

The Evolution of Stress – and thanks to NuCalm, stress relief.

We supposedly live in a Digital Age. So why are our reactions straight out of the Stone Age? Because while the causes of stress have evolved, our stress response hasn’t.

Immediate physical danger activates a short-term, primal reaction designed to maximize our chances of survival. Once that threat has passed, all physical systems should  restore to normal.

But chronic psychological stress, often manifested by insomnia, elicits a long-term primal  reaction, which triggers a flood of the stress hormones adrenaline and cortisol.

These, in turn, can lead to dire physiological, biochemical, and neurological consequences: high blood pressure, suppressed immune function, slowed metabolism, emotional instability,  and more.

 

Our high-tech, modern age demands high-tech stress relief.

Traditional stress-relief methods are unnatural, time-consuming, unreliable. But NuCalm®‘s patented, clinically-proven solution relaxes users without drugs, without delay, without fail.

That’s because it interrupts the body’s stress response – that primitive fight-or-flight reaction that is so self-defeating, especially in our modern world – then guides the mind to a state of equanimity – safely, rapidly, reliably.

NuCalm® is stress relief for the way we live today – technology to help you disconnect.

Heart Rate Variability: a health-assessment tool.

The Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) plays a vital role in stress management, recovery, and overall health.

And Heart Rate Variability (HRV) is the best non-invasive method for assessing its overall functioning – not surprising, since the heart is largely regulated by the ANS.

HRV measures the difference in duration between each heartbeat (or length as seen on an EKG readout).

You might think a perfectly regular heartbeat would be the sure sign of ideal health. But in fact, the opposite is true: the greater the variation, the healthier you are, and the lower your risk factor for many chronic conditions: cardiovascular disease; anxiety, depression, and other psychological disorders; and inflammation that can lead to premature aging.

A high HRV score is an indication of a balanced ANS – and an index of the heart’s ability to readily adapt to changing stress.

NuCalm® can improve your HRV score, hence your general health. 

Research shows that as the relaxing effect of NuCalm® slows the heart rate, it effectively raises its variability by placing the ANS into a state of parasympathetic dominance (the mind and body’s “rest-and-repair” mode) within minutes of application.

Used consistently, NuCalm® can help establish and maintain ANS balance over the long term, gradually elevating your HRV score even more. A NuCalm® routine is a key component of good stress management, efficient recovery, and optimal overall health.
