I was diagnosed with a thyroid issue at the beginning of the year and have always had PCOS. I was told to go to an endocrinologist but had to wait 4 months for an appt. I went to Natalie immediately for help to try to address my thyroid issue. She really listens and digs into the full picture of everything ever in your health history to connect symptoms that I had never realized were connected or could be changed about me (ie dry skin). She educated me so much and truly has steered me into living a completely different lifestyle when it comes to what/how/when I eat, drink, sleep etc! When it finally came time for my endocrinologist appointment, I was educating my endocrinologist and asking good questions and not just taking what she said as the answer. The endocrinologist wanted to treat the pcos and thyroid issue as 2 separate issues, she didn’t believe they were related… despite both being hormonal issues!? They also didn’t do a full thyroid panel or compare my results to the results from 4 months earlier. Natalie did and pointed out that despite some being too low/high, some of the numbers were improving. It’s been 6 months now and I just got my period for the first time in several YEARS. So it feels amazing to know that my efforts, through Natalie’s guidance, are slowly healing my body. I know it won’t happen overnight but am so grateful to have Natalie as a resource in my life to help me overcome health issues, especially when traditional doctors don’t have answers.

Thanks to Natalie's Functional Medicine program, I have finally resolved life long digestive issues, returned to a much healthier weight, and substantially improved my vitality. Any skepticism I had about what can be achieved through Functional Medicine was completely dispelled by the results I've realized with Natalie's help. She is a supportive, encouraging, but firm health coach who expertly applies her comprehensive knowledge and understanding of Functional Medicine to an individual's unique situation. I highly recommend Natalie and her Functional Medicine program to anyone trying to improve their digestive or overall health.

I approached Natalie for advice after two miscarriages, a fibroid surgery and being diagnosed with hypothyroidism at the age of 37. I am fairly health conscious and do what I can to eat healthy, work out and sleep well. However, some unexpected family related stress in the last 2 yrs, subconsciously had a severe impact on me emotionally and physically without me realizing it. Natalie, unravelled my story and got right to some root causes for my health issues literally in one phone call. She had clearly spent hours on research. First, going through my medical history, lifestyle and family history. Second, drawing connections across the board to arrive at a root cause. She took the time to explain everything and backed it up with scientific publications. I love Natalie’s approach and fully trust that my journey with her will lead to a better me. I will learn to prioritize health, tame stress and prepare my body for a lifetime of well being.

Unique verve’s functional medicine program was a god send for me.
I initially started the program to manage gut issues, hypo-thyroidism, to correct the immune balance of my body and prepare for a healthy pregnancy.
The program did that and much more for me. I got pregnant a few weeks into the program and Natalie worked twice as hard to help me through it all.
With the new way of healthy life, nutrional balance and appropriate supplements, i have had a normal 8 months of pregnancy… void of heart burn, constipation and other gut related issues that moms have to endure.
I highly recommend this program.

Working with Natalie has helped me tremendously. I have more energy and have finally been able to stop my recurrent UTIs. I had suffered from recurrent UTIs for 20 years. They worsened after I had children. I started working with Natalie as my functional DR and for over 8 months I have been cured. I also understand what I need to do for better health and digestion. Natalie is totally focused, personal, and she will follow through. She will treat like family. I have finally learned how to holistically take care of myself.

Virginia Miller

I cannot recommend Natalie highly enough. She guided me through her nutritional program and that experience has had a very positive affect on my health and skin. I continue to use her supplements and guidance. I see measurable results and improved over all health.

I love going for facials by Natalie! My skin is so vibrant for 2 weeks after. Such a relaxing atmosphere. She takes the time to analyze your skin…and gives the best massages! She is extremely pleasant and professional. 10/10

I became Natalie's client in hopes to get my rosacea into remission. I've been taking high blood pressure medicine for more than 10 years. When my doc told me that it's time to start taking another 2 drugs, including statins, it made me think that there must be another way of improving my health. I was sick and tired of taking medications. In less than 4 months I was able to come off high blood pressure medication, I lost 12 lbs, my acid reflux and bloating is GONE. I feel amazing! On top of everything my rosacea is completely in remission. I don't remember my skin looking so good! I never thought that my internal health problems were somehow related to my skin. I have already recommended Natalie to my friends and family and will be recommending her for functional medicine services to anyone who seeks and needs help in improving their health! Thank you Natalie! You have changed my life!

I have been a client of Natalie's for about 7 years now. Until this year Natalie was solely my esthetician, helping me literally turn back the clock when it came to aging without the use of botox and fillers. Natalie and I would often discuss diet and lifestyle habits that could affect the quality and appearance of the skin. During these conversations I was always in awe of Natalie's knowledge of the body and her curiosity about my overall health. She listened compassionately as I shared issues related to my thyroid and hormone health and my frustration with generally feeling unwell. So earlier this year when Natalie began offering functional medicine services, I came onboard right away. Prior working with Natalie I had worked with several functional medicine practitioners. Not one has helped me the way that Natalie has. Her listening skills are unparalleled. She listens critically but also with great compassion. When you share your issues with her you don't feel judged or ``crazy``. She asks questions and probes with the skill of a researcher, trying to unearth as much information as she can to direct her work. Once she complies all of the information, she determines what testing is necessary for her to get a better picture of what is going on in your body. Natalie is thoughtful and deliberate when it comes to selecting testing. Previous practitioners would just list out thousands of dollars of testing, insisting that I needed every single one. Natalie is not like that. In fact, one of the tests Natalie selected for me was one that no other practitioner had offered me. It was actually very affordable test. And as it turned out, that test gave me the most important information of all. I had been suffering from a parasite for some time. Without Natalie's suggestion, I never would have taken this particular test or found out about the stealth infection hiding out and wreaking havoc in my gut. After working with Natalie these last few months I have seen HUGE improvements in my overall health. I plan on continuing my work with Natalie, confident that my improvements will be even greater. I highly recommend working with Natalie! You will not be disappointed.

My skin is doing so well! And my GI/bowel movements are also so amazing! Can’t believe how much it’s changed since the spring! Thank you again! Truly sing your praises to anyone who will listen.

I started working with Natalie for functional medicine since January/February. For 2+ years I was dealing with severe gastrointestinal issues. I had many other symptoms I wanted to address, but my GI issues were the most impactful and detrimental to my daily life. I went to multiple doctors who simply were unhelpful. At one point I was told I have IBS and basically there was not much to do about it and I need to just manage my symptoms. I felt incredibly frustrated and refused to accept this as my new life going forward. When Natalie reached out about starting to work with clients for functional medicine, I was hesitant to venture outside of traditional medicine (despite its disappointments). However, having known Natalie for years, I know she puts an insane amount of effort and diligence into anything she pursues. I am so incredibly happy I decided to work with her to heal my body. From day one of the functional medicine journey, Natalie truly listened and carefully assessed my entire medical history (which is pretty extensive). Doctors are faced with a combination of being overloaded with patients, trained to treat acute symptoms, and bombarded by paperwork from insurance companies. It felt strange to feel fully heard and I wish all healthcare experiences were what Natalie gives. It's only been 4-5 months and I'm not ``cured``, but my symptoms have vastly improved way beyond what I expected when I first started. I am no longer constantly uncomfortable and in pain. She not only helped my GI symptoms, but also my energy, brain fog, etc. I finally feel that my body and mind are returning to normal and it is a freeing experience of relief. Healing your body with functional medicine is a team effort. It requires personal effort to change your own habits and lifestyle, but I couldn't ask for a better teammate in guidance, knowledge, and support than Natalie

A ``skincare education``..! In addition to the best facial I've ever had, their staff basically sat me down and kindly advised me on a combination of diet improvements and products for my skin type. Finally logical, science-based specifics on improving skin quality. Saw improvements after 3 days, use less makeup, and continue to see ``significant`` improvements on a weekly basis.

Natalie is truly an expert on skincare and she is now developing her functional medicine practice as well which I expect she will excel in. I have seen her regularly for about two years and I have experienced noticeable changes to my skin tone and elasticity - I have been receiving more compliments lately from strangers above my skin and I am a woman in her mid-forties. Natalie customize her treatments after an in-depth intake session which includes infrared imaging to pinpoint problem areas. She promotes living toxin free as the first approach to health scan and recently added a line of supplements to her product offerings. Her main skin care products are from South Africa and they’re the cleanest products I have ever used. Be forewarned, Natalie services are not cheap. But if you’re able to splurge a little sometimes then Unique Verve is the only place in Boston worth spending your money on for serious skincare.

Natalie is warm, friendly, professional and extremely knowledgeable about skin and skincare products, treatments, devices. I have very sensitive and dry skin and after my first facial I already noticed a huge difference. She has also helped my skin survive the Boston winter, which is often a huge challenge for me. I can honestly say that Unique Verve is the best facial spa I have ever been to - the facials are the perfect mix of her like a relaxing (including a lot of massage) and effective medical grade treatments. Natalie takes such care when performing her facials and you leave feeling relaxed and resume rejuvenated (both your skin and body). I could not recommend Natalie high enough:)

Maru R

In the 9 months I have been seeing Natalie, she has literally transformed my skin. She has helped me understand what products to use and how to properly care for my skin. She always makes me feel like she is truly invested. She is professional yet genuine and caring and the spa spa is beautiful and serene! Try Unique Verve once and you will never want to go anywhere else for facials!
