The Science of Better

More than 2 billion people worldwide face brain-based health and productivity challenges; and more than 70% of people have stress that impacts their mental or physical health, while $4 trillion in global wellness spending indicates people want solutions to help them get better. 

NESTRE™ Health & Performance is a mental and cognitive strength training and solutions company that leverages neuroscience and AI/Machine Learning technology to personalize how people get better, feel better, and perform better.  

NESTRE™ offers proprietary Neuroplasticity Strength Training and is the first NEuro-STREngth company to leverage the science of neuroplasticity, which states that the brain can change and is in a constant state of changing, learning, responding, and adapting. At NESTRE™, you can tap into your own ability to heal, recover, and strengthen yourself both mentally and cognitively. 

Solutions at NESTRE™ are results-driven and successfully utilized by elite performers including NFL athletes and coaches, Olympians, and business executives. 

This is Personal

The CEO & Founder of NESTRE, Dr. Tommy Shavers, created a model of self-recovery and successfully healed himself from decadelong mental and cognitive impairment and decline after suffering career ending concussions as a collegiate football player.

Once he achieved what doctors deemed impossible, he aimed to create an efficient and scalable model to help others get better in the areas of brain health, mental wellness, and human performance. This breakthrough led to his discovery of the established science of neuroplasticity.

Dr. Shavers and the team at NESTRE are on a mission to change the narrative around mental health and cognitive performance and build a better world with the human in mind.

I wanted to thank you for the help my daughter has received from NESTRE. As you know, Lily is a diehard athlete, always leaving everything on the field. In her senior year of high school, she was living her dream of playing football in her final Homecoming Powder Puff game, (she would proudly want me to mention that they won). Unfortunately, that meant some serious sacrifices to her brain. She had multiple hits to her head, diving and falling backward with only catching the ball in her mind. Then the following day, she also tripped and hit her head against a car. This hit seemed even worse than all the hits the night before. For months of sitting out of her sports and after trying traditional medical protocols, she improved enough to start playing sports again.

Lily decided to try a new sport, basketball, for the first time. However, in just her third game playing, she was elbowed in the temple, sustaining a third concussion in just 3 months. After this, her symptoms returned worse than after the last 2 concussions. Her functioning was so poor that she was unable to focus in class at all. Her brain could not comprehend what teachers were saying in class and she was completely unable to read anything and understand it. She struggled even to speak and communicate clearly with her family and friends. Going to school was only a daily testing ground to see if she could make it through any classes (while wearing sunglasses and a hat) without getting a headache. Most of her school time was spent in a quiet room resting to get her headache to subside.

We heard about NESTRE from a teammate who had found huge improvements from multiple concussions of her own, so we considered giving it a try. We thought, “We have nothing to lose. She can’t do anything in school anyway” So we signed her up for a full week of two brain trainings per day. We were skeptical, but we cautiously stepped into this new science we had heard about. What we had noticed about her diminished cognitive abilities were confirmed by the pre-testing done at NESTRE. Her brain was operating at 2% of her mental capacity.  After her first brain training session, she looked brighter and said she felt so much better. I was surprised, but wondered if there really had been changes made. She continued with the the training the rest of that week, and improvements continued. She was no longer having symptoms of headaches and difficult speech, and no longer bothered by light at all. It seemed miraculous. After that week she returned to school and was able to listen in class with understanding, able to start making up all the schoolwork that she had missed, and ended up graduating with her class. We realized that having had focus issues during her pre-concussion life, it may benefit her to do more training before she left for college. So she did another week of brain training at the start of the summer before she left for college.  We are so grateful for the improvements she made through NESTRE and are big fans of this amazing process!
