Megan Barnett, MS
Functional Medicine Nutritionist
Megan works with patients in Portland and across the country who want answers to why they don’t feel well. She helps them identify underlying biochemical imbalances and critical physiological factors that are negatively affecting their health. Using a fix-what-you-find approach, Megan combines an extensive health intake with each patient alongside comprehensive laboratory testing to improve immune function, reduce inflammatory factors, optimize metabolic function and reverse symptoms and disease risk. Megan uses nutrition and lifestyle medicine therapeutically to individualize treatment for each patient's unique needs.
Prompted by a desire to reverse her own autoimmune disease, Megan earned her bachelor’s of science in dietetics at Kansas State University in Manhattan, Kansas. She went on to earn her master’s degree in human nutrition and functional medicine at the University of Western States in Portland, Oregon. Megan practices an evidence-based healthcare approach, relying heavily on medical research and clinical experience to shape her approach to practicing functional medicine.
What her patients are saying
"When I came to see Megan, I was having issues with chronic inflammation, sleep, brain fog, muscle aches and loss of energy. I kept gaining weight and was barely eating. Megan looked at the whole picture by assessing me for food sensitivities and hormone levels. She put me on an anti-inflammation diet to determine which foods were causing issues. Immediately I was able to adjust my hormone levels and trigger the healing process. I lost 32 pounds, my mind is noticeably clearer, my energy levels have improved and I now sleep through the night. Thank you, Megan, for giving me my life back!"
"Megan did an excellent job assessing my needs and then checked with me step by step to see how I was progressing. She was always available by text, which was very much appreciated when I was having major difficulties. She and Jeff are both very caring people and TRULY want to help you achieve a pain free healthy life. I feel I am very lucky to have found both of them!"
"Megan is thoughtful and professional in her interactions. She is very clear with communications about the plan of care, lab results, and information to support the treatment/diet suggestions. I am so glad I was referred to her."
"Megan really takes your habits and lifestyle into consideration. I feel this made a huge difference in my being able to be successful with the changes we were making."
"As much as I value Megan's ability to educate and offer insights, I value her ability as a listener even more. Grateful to be working with her."
