Welcome to Dr. Michael Veselak’s practice, where we specialize in Functional Medicine – a patient-centered approach to healthcare that aims to uncover the root causes of illness and restore optimal wellness. We believe in treating the whole person, not just the symptoms, to help you achieve lasting health and vitality.
What is Functional Medicine?
Functional Medicine is a holistic approach to healthcare that differs from conventional medicine in several key ways. While conventional medicine often focuses on treating symptoms with medication or surgery, Functional Medicine seeks to address the underlying factors that contribute to health issues. Here’s what sets it apart:
Personalized Care: Functional Medicine recognizes that every individual is unique. We take the time to understand your genetics, lifestyle, and environmental factors that may be influencing your health.
Root Cause Analysis: Instead of just managing symptoms, Functional Medicine practitioners investigate the root causes of your health concerns. This approach helps us develop targeted treatment plans.
Holistic Approach: We consider the interconnectedness of all body systems and strive to restore balance and function to support your body’s innate healing abilities.
Patient-Centered: You are an active participant in your healthcare journey. Functional Medicine empowers you to make informed decisions about your health.
Preventative Focus: Functional Medicine isn’t just about treating illness; it’s also about optimizing wellness and preventing future health issues.
At Dr. Michael Veselak’s practice, we are committed to helping you achieve your health goals through Functional Medicine. Here’s how we do it:
Comprehensive Assessment: We conduct in-depth evaluations, including lab tests, to gain a thorough understanding of your health and potential imbalances.
Personalized Treatment: Based on the assessment, we develop personalized treatment plans that may include dietary modifications, supplements, lifestyle changes, and more.
Education and Support: We believe in educating our patients, so you understand the “why” behind your treatment plan. We offer ongoing support to help you implement and maintain positive changes.
Long-Term Wellness: Our ultimate goal is to help you achieve long-lasting wellness and vitality, so you can enjoy a higher quality of life.

The cornerstone of good health is controlling inflammation and oxidative stress, stabilizing glucose and oxygen, enhance digestion, detoxification and elimination. We focus on improving these systems with personalized diet and lifestyle strategies to regain and maintain your optimum health.
We break our treatment down into various phases to focus on your goals and not lose sight of what is important. We have found that if the foundational elements are not properly addressed in the beginning then ultimately the treatment will not be successful.
As we educate you how to control inflammation and oxidative stress, properly stabilize your blood glucose, control anemia and stabilize your autoimmunity, we begin to address detoxification, elimination digestion and hormones.
The next steps coincide specifically with your symptoms. It can include elimination of pathogens, bacteria, virus, mold or parasites. Sometimes it is regulating the immune and adaptive immune systems. Conditions like Mast Cell Activation syndrome occurs when the immune system becomes too hyper vigilant. The goal is to calm down the inflammatory messengers or cytokines and to down regulate the histamine response.
Another very important component of treatment is balancing the sympathetic nervous system and the parasympathetic nervous system. The sympathetic is “fight or flight”, and the parasympathetic is “rest and digest.” These are commonly out of balance in a lot of our patients. We instruct you how to build up the Vagal tone to improved digestion, sleep and anxiety.
We will provide home exercises and therapies to help you succeed in this phase.
As you improve we will be educating you on how to continue to have success as well as how to manage your symptoms if a flare-up occurs. We fine tune phase one and two with a closer look into your personal genetics. Our intention is to diminish or eliminate the expression of these genes.
We offer a 10 minute complimentary consultation to determine if we are a good fit for each other. The majority of our patients have been to several Doctors prior to beginning care in our office. They are apprehensive about another approach. The phone number is 805-482-0723 to schedule this call.
