A non-profit organization, Mission 22, that is known for raising awareness and preventing suicides, and treating PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress) has partnered with Solace Lifescience with the aim to aid veterans with its NuCalm’s 100th pack which is cutting edge technology for the reduction of stress.
NuCalm is a neuroscience technology that works by placing a disc at the Pericardium 6 acupressure point on the inside of the left wrist to alleviate stress. By halting your adrenaline reaction, the disc supposedly transmits signals to activate the brain’s natural relaxing mechanism.
Solace Lifesciences has contributed over $500,000 in NuCalm to Mission 22 for distribution to veterans.
Mission 22 collaborates with a variety of groups around the United States to raise awareness about veteran concerns, enroll veterans in treatment programs, and provide services in local areas.
Magnus Johnson, former Green Beret, and founder said in a statement that for many veterans, PTS does not resolve with time; it may impact their lives for years, decades, or even their whole lives.
A package of 20 NuCalm discs costs $80, while a box of 60 costs $240.
Jim Poole, the CEO and President of Solace LifeScience, in a statement, said that once the human brain gets traumatized, it undergoes biochemical and physiological changes which then keep the person in a consistent state of hypervigilance and “flight or fight”. In such a condition, it is extremely difficult to recover or heal, and, therefore, the ability of NuCalm to initiate cellular repair, deep relaxation, and recovery is very critical for the process of healing.
He said that within minutes, NuCalm calms the stress reaction naturally, without the need for medicines, and on-demand.
In 2005, the Department of Veterans Affairs started recording the annual number of veteran suicides. While the figures for 2019 and 2020 have not been determined, the total from 2005 to 2018 is far above 80,000.
Since 2008, the government says that veteran suicides have reached 6,000 per year.
In comparison, the casualty report from the Department of Defense indicates that around 7,000 American troops have died in the line of duty since 2001.
