I am Dr. Todd Pesek, M.D., but please do call me Dr. Todd. I'm a holistic physician and published scholar who specializes in disease prevention and reversal toward longevity and vital living.
I am in private practice in northeastern, Ohio, and am co-founder of a group medical practice, Great Lakes Health Institute of Lyndhurst, Ohio where we focus on preventive, integrative, holistic healthcare. In addition, I am Chief Medical Officer for area grocer Heinen’s Fine Foods and I am a tenured Health Sciences Professor at Cleveland State University, Cleveland, Ohio, where I teach, research and serve in multiple capacities, including as founding Director for the Center for Healing Across Cultures.
I was raised in the mountains of Appalachia in rural Pennsylvania and embraced a calling of holistic health and wellness from an early age. My passion and purpose began in the woods; gathering comfort and learning truth from elders and the Earth. These adventures blossomed into extensive study and collaboration with traditional healers and holistic health practitioners in places as far away as India, Peru and Belize.
My goal is to shed light on holistic health and wellness through timeless healing traditions that have long helped us maintain personal health and wellness, and can help us stay healthy and filled with vitality today. My work illustrates how we all have the power to achieve wellness through hydration, Superfoods nutrition, alkalinization, and detoxification. I also turn patients onto an immersion into nature, the healing plants and traditional practices of the world to better avail them to true health.
I received my medical doctorate from The Ohio State University College of Medicine and the Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland, Ohio, and completed my training in Medicine at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, St. Vincent Charity Hospital, Cleveland, Ohio.
I am a son, brother, husband and father to two wonderful girls. We love the outdoors and embrace the bounty of nature. It is my honor to become a contributor to your family's health and wellness.
