NuCalm Scientific Overview

The human body is adaptable, intelligent and yet, complex. As humans, we feel stress over daily occurrences (i.e. issue at work, speaking with a spouse, helping your child) and find it difficult to accept relaxation. Stress is not our fault! Our bodies are unable to differentiate between physical and psychological stress.

The Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) responds to our internal and external cues through stimulation or relaxation. The ANS consists of two divisions: The Sympathetic Response and the Parasympathetic Response.

The sympathetic state (often referred to as fight or flight) is the part of the ANS that unconsciously reacts when we are under physical or mental pressure. The parasympathetic response (often referred to as rest and repair) is a state that allows the body to recover.

NuCalm is a neuroscience-based system designed to get the body into the parasympathetic (rest & repair) state of the ANS. NuCalm is a patented 3-step process that naturally gets your body into a state of maximum relaxation and healing every single time.

The patented 3-step process consists of: wearing an eye mask to eliminate visual stimuli, applying a bio-signal disc to interrupt stress hormones, and listening to nueroacoustic tracks that influence your brainwaves to enter the parasympathetic state.

NuCalm’s patented three-step neuroscience-based system will get you to spend more time in the rest & repair state allowing you to improve sleep, reduce stress and boost recovery.


The human body is adaptable, intelligent and yet, complex. As humans, we feel stress over daily occurrences (i.e. issue at work, speaking with a spouse, helping your child) and find it difficult to accept relaxation. Stress is not our fault! Our bodies are unable to differentiate between physical and psychological stress.

The Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) is the operating system for regulating bodily functions such as: heart rate, metabolism, digestion, hormone regulation and endocrine function. The ANS responds to our internal and external cues through stimulation or relaxation. For example, when we need to outrun danger, our heart rate is stimulated. When we are clear of this danger, it will relax.

The ANS consists of two divisions: the Sympathetic Response and the Parasympathetic Response. The sympathetic state (often referred to as fight or flight) is the part of the ANS that unconsciously reacts when we are under physical or mental pressure. The parasympathetic response (often referred to as rest and repair) is a state that allows the body to recover.

When our body is in the parasympathetic (rest and repair) state, this is when our immune system goes to work and our muscles and joints can start to recover. It is the optimal state of restoration.

On the contrary, our sympathetic response (fight or flight) is unconsciously initiated, when we are faced with stress and uncertainty. Stress hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol flood the body to boost its alertness. This is the optimal state to combat danger.

The benefits of being in the rest & repair state have been well known to scientists, doctors and practitioners of mediation.

But here’s something to think about: How can the average person tell when they are in one ANS state vs. the other?

The amount of time a person spends in fight & flight versus rest & repair is measured through Heart Rate Variability (HRV) measurement.

In terms of evolution, the ANS has yet to catch up with the modern world. A survival response that was once vital and used only for a physical stressor, fight or flight is now ignited for our everyday psychological mental stress. This is why most people’s HRV measurement shows that their body spends way too much time in fight & flight mode and not enough in the rest & repair state.

Our new age lifestyle has evolved faster than our body.

So we propose a solution!

 

NuCalm is a neuroscience-based system designed to get the body into the parasympathetic (rest & repair) state of the ANS. NuCalm is a patented 3-step process that naturally gets your body into a state of maximum relaxation and healing every single time. This neuroscience-based drug-free approach accomplishes this through effortlessly getting you into the brainwave patterns of relaxation, thoughtfulness, and healing.

NuCalm moves the HRV measurement in the direction of rest & repair every time.

Step one of the NuCalm system is to eliminate visual stimuli; this is done by using a light-blocking eye mask. This step is important for maintaining relaxation and allowing the brain and body to be in perfect state for rest and repair.

Step two is to interrupt stress related hormones prevalent in the body via the NuCalm bio-signal disc. The NuCalm disc emits frequencies that are identical to a neurotransmitter (chemical messenger in the body) called Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid (GABA).

When the NuCalm disc is placed on the inside of your left wrist, signals are sent to the Vagus Nerve (which works to control parasympathetic response) to the brain. This tells the brain to release GABA to interrupt adrenaline and other stress hormones. This allows the body to slow down.

The final step of the NuCalm system is to get your brain into a state of deep relaxation which is vital for repair. This is done by coordinating your brainwave frequencies.

There are 5 types of brainwave frequencies:

Gamma is the highest brainwave frequency (25-100Hz) and is associated with peak focus (also known as “being in the zone”).

Beta brain waves occur between 12.5-30Hz and are correlated with cognitive tasks; these brainwaves are present during most of our day.

Alpha brainwaves (7.5-12.5Hz) are associated with relaxation and visualization.

Theta brainwaves (4-7Hz) are associated with meditation and memory.

Delta is the lowest brainwave frequency (0.5-4HZ) and is the state of detached awareness and sleep.

NuCalm’s neuroacoustic tracks bring brainwaves into the frequency range from Alpha to deep Theta. These frequencies are associated with relaxation, greater awareness, intuition and provide a calming alertness. Studies have found that this is also the same state as transcendental meditation.

NuCalm uses neurophysic-designed sounds to influence brainwave patterns. NuCalm’s neuroacoustic tracks are a collaboration of multiple science-based techniques; one which includes binaural beats. Since 1893, binaural beats work by delivering multiple musical tones at slightly different frequencies to each ear. The brain then oscillates (processes) these tones to a singular tone or frequency. These tones mimic the frequency levels of brainwaves and influences the brain into the desired brainwave pattern.

NuCalm is the next generation of binaural beats. Traditional binaural beat music is linear and predictable; NuCalm tracks are scientifically designed to keep your brain engaged!

The NuCalm tracks use complex nonlinear structures of sound unpredictable to the brain. This keeps the brain engaged, allowing you to get reliable results every time you use NuCalm.

NuCalm is based on 15+ years of scientific research. NuCalm has helped people suffering from traumatic situations, severe depression/anxiety and has improved stage 4 cancer patients’ sleep. Regardless of the condition, NuCalm can help you.

NuCalm’s patented three-step neuroscience-based system will get you to spend more time in the rest & repair state allowing you to improve sleep, reduce stress and boost recovery.

Modern life is challenging, but it doesn’t have to be stressful.

With NuCalm, stress is a choice.
