Mission 22 Uses High-Tech System that Helps Veterans Repair ‘Invisible Injuries’

Maker donates 100th unit for vets in need.

(Issued May 27, 2021) -- It’s estimated that some 500,000 veterans who served in Iraq and Afghanistan have been diagnosed with Post-Traumatic Stress (PTS.) Others may have it and not recognize the symptoms.

Since 2018, Mission 22 (www.Mission22.com), a non-profit organization that provides treatment programs for PTS and suicide awareness and prevention, has joined forces with Solace Lifesciences, makers of NuCalm, a high-tech stress-relief technology, to bring elusive – often life-saving help -- to veterans.

Solace Lifesciences has donated almost $500,000 worth of NuCalm to Mission 22 in an effort to serve those who have valiantly served our country and protected us.

Mission 22’s treatment programs address Post-Traumatic Stress, Traumatic Brain Injury and other issues, organize events, and build memorials to create social impact and awareness for these important issues. Mission 22 partners with numerous organizations across the U. S. and runs an Ambassador program to educate the public on veterans issues, bring veterans into its treatment programs, and create resources in their communities. Johnson says, “Through these programs, we push for the betterment of our community, and offer support when veterans need it the most -- right now. For many vets, PTS doesn't go away over time; it can disrupt their lives for years, decades, their lifetime.”

Recovery & Resiliency

Johnson explains how Mission 22’s Recovery & Resiliency curriculum leverages timeless principles of healing and combines it with modern science: “We put these powerful biometric and supplemental tools and healing fundamentals in veterans' hands so they're never left in the dark about the next positive step they need to take. They learn how to reframe their physical and psychological environment to transform what was once a severe trauma into a treasure the rest of us can learn from. While wounds from the past will never fully go away, R+R teaches how those wounds can turn into weapons against hopelessness.”

Johnson had been using NuCalm for several years before adding the technology to his R+R curriculum. He describes his personal NuCalm use: “With NuCalm I can effectively and quickly access a state of mind where, in 20 minutes a day, I get to respond to my feelings and thoughts instead of react to them. I can be humble, thoughtful, patient and kind. But when I react instead of respond, I can be aggressive, irritable and fearful. NuCalm helps me be the version of myself that is genuine and real. It is who I am without PTS.”

NuCalm -- ‘Rewiring the Brain’ -- Technology to Help Disconnect

According to Jim Poole, President and CEO of Solace Lifesciences, makers of NuCalm (www.NuCalm.com), “We provide NuCalm to help veterans heal, restore, and recover from trauma. This is by design as NuCalm was invented and developed expressly to help humans heal from trauma by lowering the stress response

safely, predictably, and without drugs. Once the brain is traumatized, physiological and biochemical changes occur that keep the person in a constant state of “fight-or-flight” and hypervigilance. It is impossible to heal and recover in this state, which makes NuCalm’s ability to create deep relaxation, cellular restoration, and recovery so important for the healing process. Within minutes NuCalm puts the brakes on the stress response, with ease, without drugs, and on-demand. Over the past decade we have been honored and humbled to witness the profound benefits NuCalm has had on thousands of veterans and their respective family members.”

The patented, clinically proven neuroscience technology uses a biosignal processing disc and neuroacoustic software presented via a mobile app. The NuCalm system relaxes users without drugs, without delay, without fail.” The award-winning, patented technology is drug-free and non-invasive with no side effects. It has been used by veterans and their families for more than a decade and is currently being used by top operators across the U.S. military and the FBI.

A vet who participated in the Mission 22 Curriculum, in which NuCalm can be used, said, “There are so many things I would have missed out on if I didn’t force myself to participate. If I hadn’t gone out to the restaurant, I wouldn’t be in an amazing relationship right now. If I didn’t seek out art instruction, I wouldn’t have a company that now does national art projects. And this is coming from a guy who once spent three weeks in his house alone, in bed. It takes time, but you have to push yourself to succeed.”

Solace Lifesciences is committed to serving those who serve and have served and offers special pricing for all active duty and veterans. As part of its collaboration, NuCalm offers discounts to all military (active duty and veterans).

Mission 22 is currently raising funds for Veteran Memorials in Oklahoma and Indiana. Mission 22 has earned the prestigious GuideStar Platinum Seal of Transparency and is listed as a Top Nonprofit. The organization is part of Elderheart, Inc., a 501 C3 non-profit (IRS -- EIN Number 46-2750726)
