Introducing NuCalm®

Masley Optimal Health Center is excited to introduce NuCalm the world’s first and only patented neuroscience technology clinically proven to lower stress and improve sleep quality – without drugs.  NuCalm gives you the power and control to slow down and recharge anywhere, any time.  NuCalm quickly slows your mind and body and activates your brain-heart-lung connection to optimize diaphragmatic breathing, oxygen-rich red blood cell flow, and optimal recovery and muscle recovery. With NuCalm, your mind wanders (in theta brainwave length) and your body idles in its optimal recovery state.

A 20 minute NuCalm session allows you to go from stressed and out of control, to a state of deep calm and balance. A complete NuCalm session (to your natural endpoint) will allow your body to achieve complete balance of your autonomic nervous system. Your physiology will be optimized and your mind will be clear and focused.

Dr. Forbes encourages her patients to call and schedule a complimentary 20 minute session for the New Year as her gift to you. We at Masley Optimal Health Center share our warmest wishes for a holiday season filled with you, and a New Year of peace, health and prosperity.

Masley Optimal Health Center is excited to introduce NuCalm to all current patients starting this January.  NuCalm is clinically proven to naturally relax the brain and body within minutes, without drugs. This patented technology addresses the brain circuitry in the limbic system, the hypothalamus and the brainstem responsible for producing stress and anxiety.

NuCalm predictably and quickly “flips the switch” from high cortisol and adrenaline to deep relaxation. This allows your body to stop the flood of cortisol and transition away from the stress response, into deep relaxation and restoration.

NuCalm works specifically on the body’s inhibitory system, the GABAergic system. This device is bio-mimetic in that it resets the naturally occurring negative feedback loop of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis, which when properly functioning is supposed to shut off and stop releasing cortisol from the adrenal glands after the end of a stressful event.

NuCalm is comprised of three discrete steps that work together to entrain brainwaves to the frequency of the first stages of sleep and create parasympathetic nervous system dominance. People in this state are physically unable to have an anxious response. Within moments of application, users will begin to feel relief from the ‘fight-or-flight’ sympathetic nervous system response and their stress hormone (cortisol) levels will begin to decline as the HPA axis is inhibited.

Stress is a biological response to the stimulus of a threat, either real or perceived. During an acute stress response, two parallel pathways are activated to prepare the body for flight-or-flight, the sympathetic adreno-medullary (SAM) arm of the autonomic nervous system and the HPA axis. Both systems can be triggered in a bottom-up manner from the brainstem by critical homeostatic perturbations, like respiratory distress, pain or inflammation – real threats. They can also be triggered in a top-down fashion from the limbic system, particularly from the amygdala, by psychogenic stressors, either innate or experiential – perceived threats. The SAM triggers the release of epinephrine (adrenaline) and norepinephrine (noradrenaline) from the adrenal medulla into the bloodstream. As these hormones circulate through the body, respiratory rate and heart rate accelerate and blood pressure increases to maximize the delivery of oxygenated blood to vital organs. This alerts the body to speed up, tense up, become hypervigilant, and take action. In parallel, the HPA axis is required to trigger a series of hormonal signals to maintain this state of hyper-alertness. The hypothalamus releases corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF), which signals the anterior pituitary gland, to release adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH). This hormone travels to the adrenal glands, prompting them to release cortisol, the well-known stress hormone. The release of cortisol can increase the production of epinephrine, as well as, trigger the glucose release from protein stores to supply the body with energy. Once the fight-or-flight adrenaline response is activated, the mind cannot rationalize itself or self-regulate until the threat is removed and time passes.

If the body is constantly in sympathetic dominance with high cortisol levels it is experiencing long-term or toxic stress. Chronic stress and anxiety are the greatest threats to your health and longevity and are estimated to affect nearly one-third of the population. They are characterized by cognitive, somatic, emotional, and behavioral components. Cognitive components include feelings of fear, apprehension, indecision and/or worry. Somatic or physical symptoms of stress can consist of heart palpitations, headaches, shortness of breath, chest pain, fatigue, muscle tension and/or frequent infections. Emotional and behavioral consequences of stress may comprise irritability, depression, loss of confidence, restlessness, appetite changes, insomnia and more. These are similar symptoms for a person suffering from PTSD or addiction. It is essential to treat the underlying autonomic dysfunction before the symptoms of chronic stress can be alleviated and NuCalm has this potential.
