Dr. Julia Ward: A Journey of Healing and Empowerment

Dr. Julia Ward is a leading physician whose unwavering commitment to her patients and unquenchable thirst for knowledge have shaped a transformative medical career. With a deep-rooted passion for medicine and a relentless pursuit of holistic wellness, she has become a trailblazer in the field of functional medicine. Her journey is a testament to the power of dedication, education, and the pursuit of a balanced life.

Her illustrious medical journey began at the prestigious University of Southern California School of Medicine, where she earned her medical degree in 1990. Following graduation, she embarked on a remarkable path in healthcare, completing her internship in Obstetrics and Gynecology at the Naval Hospital in San Diego. She then served with the United States Marine Corps in Camp Pendleton, California, practicing general medicine. Her journey briefly paused as she embarked on another important chapter of her life, welcoming her second child. Throughout her medical career, she continued to balance the demands of her profession with the joys of raising her five children.

Her service to the military took her and her family to Okinawa, Japan, where she fulfilled her obligations to the Marines while practicing in urgent care and emergency medicine. Her dedication to her work never wavered, and her ability to maintain a work-life balance was truly remarkable.

Her tireless dedication eventually led her to a profound realization – the existing healthcare system had its limitations. It was at this crossroads that she discovered functional medicine, a paradigm that resonated deeply with her. Her passion for delving into the intricate ‘rabbit holes’ of science and biochemistry found its ideal outlet. Dr. Ward was drawn to the world of functional medicine, where she could explore advanced learning and scientific intricacies that held the promise of genuinely benefiting her patients. Her newfound love for functional medicine rekindled her passion for healing and providing more efficient care.

After completing her fellowship with the American Board of Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine (A4M) in 2016, Dr. Ward transitioned her medical focus to functional medicine. She began practicing and educating her patients on the power of total body well-care and alternative options for wellness, medicine, and healing.

Dr. Ward’s holistic approach has become a beacon of hope for countless individuals seeking comprehensive healthcare solutions.

A Multifaceted Approach

Dr. Ward’s commitment to her patients extends beyond the conventional. She expanded her expertise with certifications in IV chelation through the American College for Advancement in Medicine (ACAM) and delved into therapies like Ozone Therapy under the guidance of Dr. Robert Rowen and Dr. Howard Robins. Her comprehensive training also includes Ketamine Therapy and Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, providing a wide array of services in her progressive functional medicine practice located in Sugar Land, TX.

Her life is a vibrant tapestry, woven with the threads of her family, her love for pets, and her dedication to wellness. She resides in Sugar Land, Texas, with her husband John and their five children, some of whom have embarked on their college journeys. In her loving home, there’s also a furry entourage including her dog Teddy and several cats.

Her achievements extend beyond her medical career. She is a competitive bodybuilder who clinched her pro card (GBO) in 2021. Her experiences and personal quest for life balance, happiness, wellness, and joy serve as a powerful vehicle in helping her patients achieve a balanced, holistic approach to well-being. 

Dr. Julia Ward is a beacon of inspiration, proving that with determination, knowledge, and a commitment to a harmonious life, we can achieve extraordinary heights of health and happiness.

Functional medicine renewed my passion for medicine and helping patients in a much more efficient way than our current health care system allows.  I love all the ‘rabbit holes’ that one can explore.  I love to geek out on all the science and biochemistry that one can get into but especially when I know that this advanced learning can really benefit my patients”
