Dr. Ellan Duke was a beacon of light in our world, with a legacy as a compassionate healer that still shines for anyone who was touched by her care. Her faith and dedication to serving others resonated in everything she did, and she had a remarkable gift of making everyone feel welcomed and valued.
Her passion for healthcare began during her teenage years when she volunteered as a counselor for the Easterseals summer program for disabled children. Inspired by the transformative impact of a chiropractor’s devoted care on the children, she pursued chiropractic medicine with a focus on nutrition.
In 1987, Dr. Duke founded the River Hills Chiropractic and Wellness Center, where for over three decades, she provided exceptional care and healing to her patients and went above and beyond to support those in need. She delivered home-cooked meals to shut-in patients on Thanksgiving, distributed care packages to the homeless on Christmas day, and went on multiple humanitarian missions at home and abroad to aid the less fortunate. She instilled her values of kindness and compassion in her family, teaching them firsthand what it meant to serve others.
Dr. Duke believed in treating the root causes of illnesses and conditions, not just the symptoms. Her personalized approach focused on aligning the body, optimizing nutrition, and utilizing functional and frequency-based therapies to achieve holistic wellness. In 2023, she founded Wellness Accelerated, a functional medical clinic that continues to embrace her philosophy. Her youngest son, Dr. Caleb Duke, PT, DPT, carries on her legacy and passion for healing as Wellness Accelerated’s new director.
Dr. Duke’s loving, faithful, and service-oriented legacy will always serve as a source of motivation and inspiration to us all. She will be forever missed, but her memory and impact will live on.
