Julie Buckley, MD, IFMCP
A graduate of the University of Miami School of Medicine, the Jackson Memorial Hospital/University of Miami Pediatric Residency Program, and, most recently, The Institute for Functional Medicine’s Certified Practitioner Program, Dr. Buckley developed an abiding interest in autism spectrum disorders when her daughter regressed into the world of autism at four years of age. She developed a similar interest in breast cancer when she developed it herself in 2009. Using an integrative/Functional Medicine approach to both diseases, both mother and daughter have had dramatic recoveries. As a result of these successes, she has implemented this approach into her unique and diverse practice in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida. Author of the books Healing Our Autistic Children (2009), Breast Cancer: Start Here (2014), and Youth Sports: Start Here (2016) and international speaker on autism and related disorders, she has also developed a patented antioxidant formula for peri-vaccination and peri-oxidative stress use. Dr. Buckley founded the HealthyUNow Foundation, a 501c3 nonprofit foundation dedicated to creating healthy living treatment and residential facilities for individuals and their families impacted by autism. She also co-founded Healing Autism Academy, an online learning platform for families impacted by autism. In addition, she sings chorally, SCUBA dives, and enjoys diverse activities with her family and adult children.
