Julie Logan, D.C.
Dr. Julie Logan will focus on helping children with the symptoms of Autism, ADD/HD, PANDAS/PANS, food sensitivities, methylation defects, GI issues, and environmental illnesses. She has attended MAPS training (Medical Academy of Pediatrics Special needs) and has spent the last six months shadowing Dr. Usman. As she continues to pursue her passion for helping children with Autism and related disorders, Dr. Logan will join our medical team at True Health Medical Center in January.Before earning her medical degree, Dr. Julie Logan was introduced to the world of medicine as a patient. After being diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Autoimmune Thyroiditis, she began treatment with a chiropractic physician and soon recovered from the disorder. But as a concerned mother, Dr. Logan was pushed further into the medical world. Educators began telling her that her older son showed signs of ADHD and her younger son developed Autism. Like so many other parents, Dr. Logan was plunged into the struggle to rescue her sons. She watched their amazing paths of recovery through chiropractic care and nutritional therapies, and soon she had discovered an incredible truth; the human body has the power to heal itself when given the right care.
Dr. Logan spent four years in her chiropractor’s office working with patients who suffered from environmental illness. Fueled by the desire to help others experience the same healing miracles her family had encountered, she entered chiropractic school as a full-time mother of two. Dr. Logan completed an undergraduate degree at Wheaton College and attended National University of Health Sciences in Lombard, graduating as Valedictorian of her class. She presently has a private family practice in Wheaton.
“From athletes to children with ASD and adults with chronic illness or pain, I have seen the body heal from all kinds of conditions – some of which were supposedly incurable,” Dr. Logan states. “It is my passion and privilege to help patients achieve their fullest potential… and the first step is to believe it is possible.”
Dr. Logan owes much of her tenacity to her career in elite athletics. Since the age of twelve, she has been a serious athlete, competing in track, cycling, and triathlon. Her careers have included racing for Trek Bicycle as a triathlete and coaching track at Wheaton College. Today, she continues to race in triathlon, duathlon, and road racing. She lives in Wheaton with her husband and two teenage sons, who are also runners. Her other hobbies include gardening and painting.
