NuCalm & Your Autonomic Nervous System

Learn how the Autonomic Nervous System impacts our health and wellbeing.

NuCalm is patented neuroscience technology that balances the Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) which enables you to relax your brain and body; because let’s face it, life is pretty stressful.

The Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) is a complex network within our bodies that impacts nearly every part of our physiology and consists of two branches: The Sympathetic Response and the Parasympathetic Response. When we are under physical or mental stress, the sympathetic state is activated (fight or flight); and when we are relaxed, the parasympathetic state is activated (rest and repair). Depending on our internal or external situation, when a person senses any type of stress or relaxation, our ANS responds accordingly.

The world asks more from us each day; stress is unavoidable. Unfortunately, our ANS cannot differentiate between physical and psychological stress; we biologically respond the same way by initiating our sympathetic “fight or flight” response. When our bodies and minds are too preoccupied with “danger,” we aren’t worried about doing all the restorative bodily tasks and functions that keep us well. We can only be in one state of the ANS at a time.

We are in dire need to reestablish balance in our ANS. A balanced ANS will lead to better sleep, lower blood pressure, and strengthened immune system. NuCalm can help improve the tone of your parasympathetic nervous system which enables you to maintain a better balance in life. It allows for proper rest and repair that leads to better sleep, improved HRV, lower blood pressure, and strengthened immune system. With its patented 3-step process, NuCalm can help improve the tone of your parasympathetic “rest and repair” nervous system, thus enabling you to bounce back and maintain a better balance long term.

NuCalm can help you to respond to stressful situations rather than react.

What is the Autonomic Nervous System (ANS)?
The Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) is a complex network within our bodies that works tirelessly behind the scenes to keep us alive. It impacts nearly every part of our physiology: our heart rate, sleep, digestion, mental capacity, and ability to heal. It consists of two branches: the Sympathetic Response and the Parasympathetic Response. When we are in a stressed state, whether physical or mental, we unconsciously activate the sympathetic state (often referred to as our ‘fight-or-flight’ response). The opposite state, the parasympathetic state (often referred to as our ‘rest and repair’ or ‘rest and digest’ response) allows the body to recover. Whether we are under physical stress, like being chased by someone, or mental stress, such as having a big work presentation, or are in a relaxed and secure state, our ANS responds accordingly.

“Fight or Flight” vs “Rest and Repair”
When we sense a physical or mental stressor, our ANS responds in the same way by initiating our sympathetic “fight-or-flight” response. It inhibits all non-essential systems such as digestion and higher level decision making, and the body gets flooded with adrenaline and cortisol. These hormones increase our alertness, heart rate, respiratory rate, and dilate our pupils. Appropriate adrenaline and cortisol release will save your life, but in excess, overactive adrenals will slowly harm you with exhaustion, poor sleep, poor recovery, a compromised immune system, and an increased risk for diseases.

On the contrary, when we are in a safe and secure physical and mental state, the ANS activates the parasympathetic system, which is our body’s main driver for optimal restoration. It allows for the immune system to do its job, and our muscles and joints can start to recover. If you are not spending enough time in this “rest-and-repair” state, your body is depleting all its resources without replenishing them. You cannot be in a heightened sympathetic state and relaxed parasympathetic state at the same time.

How NuCalm Helps Create Balance in the ANS
The world asks more from us each day; stress is unavoidable and finding the time to get proper rest is nearly impossible. Stress has many interpretations, but in this context we are sympathetically “fight or flight” dominant and we are living in an intensified state. This causes our bodies and minds to become too preoccupied with “danger” to care about the restorative tasks that keep us well. We, therefore, are in dire need to reestablish balance in our ANS. Through the combination of reducing sensory stimulation, interrupting stress hormones and the use of scientifically-designed non-linear neuroacoustic tracks, NuCalm reliably and seamlessly puts you into the restorative parasympathetic state, thereby balancing your ANS.

NuCalm’s patented 3-step process naturally disarms your body’s stress response and helps you reach a therapeutic state that allows for new cell turnover, joint healing, digestion, and optimal recovery. NuCalm brings you out of the heightened and anxiety-prone sympathetic state and allows for the calming and restorative parasympathetic state to dominate. A NuCalm session helps to balance the ANS which gives you the proper rest and repair so that you can respond better to the demands of everyday life.

A balanced ANS will lead to better sleep, lower blood pressure, and strengthened immune system. NuCalm helps improve the tone of your parasympathetic nervous system, thus enabling you to maintain a better balance in life.
