Improving Sleep Quality
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.
NuCalm Provides These Profound Benefits Two Ways
By balancing your autonomic nervous system and restoring you to optimal health
By grooming your GABAergic system and priming your brain for better sleep performance
Balancing The Autonomic Nervous System
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.
Grooming Your GABAergic System
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.
