ENCYCLOPDIA OF USES

USING BLAST TO OVERCOME

CRAVINGS

THE STRESS RESPONSE

When we are stressed our bodies may experience cravings for comfort foods. While it’s okay to indulge in moderation it’s important to be mindful of our food choices and find healthier ways to cope with stress. BLAST can help you beat the craving when it’s too much for your willpower.  

HOW BLAST HELPS

TouchPoint Solution’s wearable devices are embedded with patented BLAST (bi-lateral alternating stimulation tactile) technology. BLAST is scientifically proven to alter the body’s “fight or flight” response caused by stress. The wearables emit alternating vibrations that disengage your standard stress response (sympathetic nervous system), and shift you into the calm, logical side of your brain (parasympathetic nervous system). 

THE LONGTERM BENEFITS

When using BLAST™ consistently to beat a craving, overtime the craving may not feel as strong and happen less frequently because of BLAST™. One of the ways BLAST works is by creating new neural pathways that help modify the memories that trigger our stress response. With continued use of BLAST™, these new neural pathways can build overtime, progressively reducing the release of stress related hormones that contribute to craving comfort foods.  

When we are stressed, our bodies release cortisol, a hormone that increases our appetite and can also stimulate the brain's reward centers. This can lead to cravings for comfort foods that are high in calories, such as chocolate, ice cream, or pizza. (Dallman, M. F., Pecoraro, N., Akana, S. F., la Fleur, S. E., Gomez, F., Houshyar, H., ... & Manalo, S.)


A triple blind placebo-controlled trial with athletes showed TouchPoints™ stabilized cortisol levels during stressful events and reduced the level of stress. (Leal-Junior, E. C., Casalechi, H. L., Machado, C. dos, Serin, A., Hageman, N. S., & Johnson, D. S., 2019)
