On a daily basis, Dr. Michael Veselak, D.C. CFMP, has patients come to him after visiting several Doctors and Specialists for their Chronic Health and Neurodegenerative conditions. Most of these patients share the same story: they were labeled with a diagnosis, ran an array of tests, medications were prescribed, but no real solution was offered to address the cause of their problem.
However, the stories our patients share are the only common ground among them. In fact, we have found that no two patients are exactly alike in terms of the cause of their discomfort and the way in which it is addressed. Dr. Veselak is often asked, what do you do to support or treat this condition? And each time, his answer is the same: every patient is different. Each patient has an individual genetic makeup. The way in which their genes express themselves is unique; their exposure to toxins, chemicals or heavy metals are different; and diet and lifestyle are specific to each person or patient.
Be that as it may, what is similar is our body’s function and its requirements to produce energy, build a healthy immune system and ultimately, survive. If our body is overloaded with toxins, viruses, bacterias, chemicals, fungi, and heavy metals, it will do whatever it takes to survive.
Symptoms such as Chronic Fatigue , Brain Fog and Digestive Issues will become more pronounced as it becomes more difficult for our body to produce the energy needed for regular daily tasks. As our physical and mental capacity begins to deteriorate, it becomes increasingly more difficult for our body to get out of this downward spiral.
Treating Individuals Not Labels
At Camarillo Functional Health we focus on the individual, and develop a plan which is unique to their body. With proper testing, we can identify and address the root cause of the problem and begin to untangle the complex web of symptoms.
We evaluate each patients immune system and their TH1 and TH2 capacity and response. An under active TH1 response will exhibit a tendency towards infections, Epstein Barr, Lyme’s, bacterial and or viral. We address the patient from a neurological perspective.
We want to evaluate the patients brain, central and peripheral nervous system. This allows us to evaluate more thoroughly conditions like anxiety, brain fog, vertigo, vagus nerve dysfunction, balance issues and frankly the ability to be focused have motivation and overall less fatigue.
Finally, we want to closely evaluate the body’s ability to digest, eliminate, detoxify, as well as hormonal imbalances.
As we said, every patient is unique not only with their symptoms and cause but with our approach. With our comprehensive treatment plan we can begin to effective make appropriate changes and begin to allow our patients to feel well again.
Proper Testing Is Essential
Dr. Michael Veselak also commonly incorporates advanced testing to help identify the cause. Tests such as Organic Acids Test, Stool Testing, Cyrex Labs are ordered if considered necessary. This provides him with several markers which include immune reactions, tolerance to food proteins, neurotransmitter function, dysbiosis in the gut, detoxification markers, vitamin deficiencies, and most importantly, how the body is converting food (macronutrients) into usable energy. When these markers are identified, we can then create a plan to improve energy production in the body and the utilization of nutrients. When the cause of the problem is identified the solutions become much clearer.
Simply stated, with each patient, Dr. Michael Veselak’s goal is to remove all the toxins and environmental burdens that have been placed on their body. Next, Dr. Veselak will restore the body’s proper functioning ability to utilize food properly and convert this food into vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, protein, carbohydrates, and of course, water. In turn, this will provide adequate energy to allow the body to strengthen and build the immune system. During the repair process, it is important to support and find the weaknesses and provide proper nutrition, which includes vitamins, herbs, and minerals. Concurrently the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) must be addressed. This is often times the missing component and the why you have not improved with prior treatments. When we incorporate proper and specific brain based exercises along with nutrition and supplementation, we can accomplish the treatment goals we established with each patient.
Dr. Michael Veselak has treated thousands of patients from all over the United States suffering with chronic disease. His success is due to the fact that we treat each patient individually. Through proper testing we can discover the susceptibility or cause and provide proper nutrition and a personalized plan to restore proper function.
Okay, Dr. Veselak has literally changed my health for the better to say the least!! I had stomach issues that had lasted over two years and I had gone to a few regular medical doctors on my insurance. No one could help, and honestly I don’t think they really cared. Dr. Veselak‘s treatment program is all natural and it is formulated to be exactly what your body is in need of. It’s based on your own personal DNA, so he dials in on what is going on in your body. Not a guessing game, or a one type fits all by any means! Also Dr. Veselak is driven by actually helping the patient, and will work on your issue as long as it takes for you to get well. Super professional and compassionate. I can’t think of even one negative thing to say. I have referred all my friends and family and he has helped so many!!.
Dr. Veselak is a gifted healer, compassionate doctor and wonderful human being. I am so blessed to have been referred to him by my good friend Marylin. After dealing with several issues for so many years Dr V. was able to get to the root of my problems. I was starting to think I was crazy because every test, scan and ultra sound came back negative. I went to various doctors and they all just assumed I was dealing with a thyroid issue. I’m so grateful that instead of assuming or guessing I found a doctor that cares enough to work hard and dive deep into the issue at hand until it is resolved. I feel like my health and my life is back on track. For these reasons I highly recommend Dr Veselak!
