The Perfect Partnership

Dr. Greg Symko and Francesca Verri’s relationship started over 23 years ago when she was a patient of his being treated for back pain.  Over the years, always sharing their common passions for nutrition and health, their doctor-patient relationship morphed into a friendship.

As their passions grew, so did their skill.  Dr. Symko completed numerous certifications and studies for Functional Neurology and Functional Medicine – an holistic way of looking at treating causes of systems by looking at the body’s ecosystem.  And Francesca completed a certification program in Holistic Health Coaching giving her the ability to coach, motivate and encourage people to make necessary changes with their nutrition and lifestyle choices.

Francesca and Dr Symko both live and believe in the Paleo lifestyle and know it offers a natural way to maintain blood sugar levels, reverse or lesson the symptoms of autoimmune diseases, inflammation in the body and brain, and increase overall energy.  They also know that the many components that make up what it means to “live” Paleo — adequate sleep and exercise, meaningful partnerships and careers – are as important to a healthy life as the wholesome, real food we eat.  They created the Paleo Process in order to share their mutual passion to help people learn to listen to their own body and make necessary changes to live a full, healthy life.

Functional Chiropractic Neurologist

“It takes work and knowledge to get healthy. And with a desire to be well there is nothing you can’t achieve.”

About Dr. Greg Symko

Dr. Greg Symko is a Functional Medicine Practitioner and a Functional Chiropractic Neurologist who believes we are all responsible for our own health.

He works with individuals who have a whole host of illnesses from MS to chronic back pain and helps them to support their bodies normal physiology (normal function), and reduce the affects of their condition in order for them to live life to its fullest.

In 1999, after 14 years practicing chiropractic, he suffered a debilitating stroke that left him bedridden. After three long, painful years he was able to regain some function which enabled him to get back to some sedentary work.  Not fulfilled by this work he was determined to get back to the work he loved – helping people heal.

Using brain based therapies got him to a certain point where he was able to get back to being a chiropractor again.  But his understanding of what it meant to be truly healthy came in 2009 when he was enlightened at a conference on chiropractic neurology about the affects of food on the brain. The knowledge gleaned not only helped him heal himself more completely but started him on a path of healing others in a more holistic way.

Dr Symko believes that we all have in us the ability to understand our health so that we can live our lives to the fullest.

Dr Symko practices functional health in Concord, Massachusetts. He attends over 20 conferences a year on nutrition and brain health and has written two books, in a series of five, documenting his stroke and his journey to true health.  You can find his books on

Certified Holistic Health Coach
Professional Organizer

“Being organized is key to feeling less stressed, and more efficient in your daily routines. Eating well is key to having more energy and vibrancy in life.”

About Francesca Verri

Francesca Verri is a certified holistic health coach, professional organizer and Paleo-living advocate who loves to solve problems for entrepreneurs and busy moms, especially ones around organization and eating. She helps people see where their life is cluttered, unbalanced, and unwell, and guides them to be more organized and healthy, and to live life verri well.

In 2002 Francesca founded Verri Organized, a company devoted to helping people realize how valuable it is to our health and mental well being to put order in our living and working space. In 2010, feeling fatigued and in chronic back pain, Francesca started seeing functional medicine practitioner Dr Greg Symko, who tested her to reveal severe gluten and dairy sensitivity. That diagnosis sparked a passion to not only improve her own health but to help others do the same. And from that diagnosis, a more holistic business was born.  Francesca got certified as a health coach from The Institute for Integrative Nutrition, started Verri Well, and now teaches people how to listen to their body and make the best lifestyle choices for optimal wellness.

Francesca loves working with people who want to get to the root cause of what is making life feel dull or unhealthy.  She helps people navigate the confusing world of nutrition, change things up, and reach their goals so they can feel and be healthy — long into old age.

A former assistant dean for administration, Francesca speaks to and coaches people from all walks of life about healthy eating and getting organized. It is her life’s mission to help people live life lite and verri well.  For more information about her work visit Verri Well.
