We all know what it feels like to get a good night's sleep. Your body is designed to sleep and recover for six to ten hours per night. That's correct. Nearly one-third of your life should be spent asleep. However, as we age a good night's sleep becomes more elusive which accelerates the aging process.
Research at Harvard Medical School shows a 45-minute treatment of NuCalm may give you the benefits equivalent to 2-5 hours of deep, restorative sleep.
The autonomic nervous system (ANS) has two branches – the sympathetic (“fight-or-flight”) and the parasympathetic (“rest and digest”). It’s vital to your health that the autonomic nervous system is in balance with equal durations spent in each state. Sleep is the natural way to accumulate time in the parasympathetic state. You have maximum parasympathetic activity during deep slow-wave sleep. In this state, your heart rate and breathing slow, your blood vessels relax and blood pressure decreases; digestion and restoration occur. Without proper sleep, your ANS will be imbalanced and skewed towards the sympathetic branch. ANS imbalance can lead to chronic stress, adrenal dysfunction, cardiovascular problems, sleep disorders, and accelerated aging. NuCalm balances your ANS during each session by suspending you in parasympathetic nervous system dominance until you achieve homeostasis.
The NuCalm biosignal processing disc grooms your brain’s GABAergic system for better stress regulation and sleep performance.
The GABAergic system is responsible for slowing down or inhibiting neuronal activity. You can think of it as your body’s relaxation system. GABA (gamma-Aminobutyric acid) is the predominant inhibitory neurotransmitter, or chemical messenger, in your brain. It works in combination with serotonin and melatonin to transition your brain and body from an aroused state to a relaxed state, readying your body for sleep. The NuCalm biosignal processing disc provides your body with a pure biosignal of GABA, in the form of electromagnetic frequencies, which gets transmitted to the pericardium of the heart to activate GABA receptors in the local nerve fibers that then relay the message to your brain. The NuCalm biosignal processing disc primes your GABAergic system to slow down internal systems and prepare your body for sleep.
Dream Big! NuCalm suspends you in the theta brain wave range (4-7Hz) where dreaming occurs. The alpha-theta crossover phenomenon induced by NuCalm is likely to cause lucid imagery or biographical memories, and most regular users of NuCalm report an increase in dream activity and dream intensity. Additionally, the theta brain wave threshold is the optimal range for creativity, visualization and mental programming. Some NuCalm users are often left inspired after spending time in this transcendent state.
Reset your internal clock with NuCalm. Your body’s circadian rhythms can easily be thrown out of balance from travel across time zones, environmental changes in light/dark cycles, or an inconsistent sleep schedule. An imbalanced internal clock affects your body’s hormonal levels which can leave you feeling exhausted during the day or unable to sleep at night, as well as negatively interfere with your mood. NuCalm has the potential to resolve this problem because it restores balance to all of your physiological systems and rhythms in just one full session. Get your sleep back on track by getting in balance with NuCalm.
The hypothalamus is the brain’s hormonal control center, responsible for maintaining an internal balance within the body. If this structure is not functioning properly, irregular hormonal levels may affect physical health and mental well-being. NuCalm has the potential to directly tap into this system and restore hormonal balance. NuCalm upregulates the GABAergic or inhibitory system of the brain which helps reset the optimal function of the hypothalamus. Furthermore, the theta and/or alpha brain waves invoked by NuCalm are associated with the production of catecholamines and serotonin hormones respectively. Regain hormonal balance without drugs or side effects to help improve your sleep quality and general well-being!
