Irina’s Personal Journey
Growing up in a medical household, Irina’s mother was a family physician in the former Soviet Union (now Ukraine) and from a young age, Irina and her sister spent considerable time in her mother’s clinic, surrounded by medicine. In school, Irina and her sister naturally gravitated to studying pre-med. Her older sister went on to become the prominent surgeon, Dr. Zhanna Logman.
As she was pursuing her medical degree, Irina realized that there was a large gap between what she was learning in her studies and the more encompassing support she wanted to provide her patients. It was clear to see that while many individuals benefited from medical intervention, there were still many others that fell short of care, treatment & optimal prognosis. All too often there were side effects from medications, risks associated with surgeries and challenges in effectively treating chronic diseases.
As she searched for answers and learned more about the wide array of medical practices all over the world, Irina discovered the rich history of ancient Chinese Medicine. Curious about how Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has, for millennia, treated mild to severe medical conditions, she further explored this fascinating style of holistic medicine to see what could be gleaned from its implementation. She was immediately captivated by how comprehensive the diagnoses and treatments were. Impressed with its results, she built on her western medicine background and integrated the holistic mind-body treatment style that she had always wanted to provide to her patients.
Irina entered into the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine completing her Masters in Traditional Oriental Medicine (MSTOM) and subsequently earned a Doctorate degree in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine (DACM). She was thrilled to be able to offer her patients alternative therapies such as acupuncture and Chinese herbs, treating the patient as a whole and the root causes of disease instead of just the symptoms.
Believing that every moment is an opportunity to grow and learn from each other, Irina is grateful for the knowledge that she has acquired from her personal experiences, her colleagues and patients. Together with her team, she is eager to share her vast knowledge of effective treatments for a wide range of medical conditions. The thoughtful combination of immersion and education enables her to foster an atmosphere of high-quality empathic care and effective treatment to all patients at the Advanced Holistic Center.
