Megan Barnett, MS, CNS


Megan Barnett, MS, CNS is a functional medicine provider, certified nutrition specialist, research writer, public speaker and educator with 10+ years in the field of nutrition science and functional medicine.

Prompted by a desire to reverse her own autoimmune disease, Megan earned her B.S. in dietetics at Kansas State University. She went on to earn her M.S. in human nutrition and functional medicine at the University of Western States.

Megan co-owns BioLounge, a functional medicine clinic in Portland, Oregon. There she works with patients who want answers to why they don’t feel well. She helps them identify and resolve underlying dietary, infectious and inflammatory triggers. Using nutrition and lifestyle medicine therapeutically, she has seen great success in reversing chronic and systemic symptoms.

In late 2019, Megan identified a huge gap in her nutrition education—the distinction between the effects of soluble and insoluble fiber on health. When she dove into the research, she learned that soluble fiber positively affects virtually every system in the body. She couldn't find a suitable organic fiber supplement on the market so she began making her own and got incredible results. From there, Florasophy was born.

Having struggled with a serious hormone imbalance since weaning her daughter, Megan's soluble fiber blend provided more relief than any other solution she’d tried. The science behind Florasophy changed Lee's life, and she knew it was her mission to share it with as many people as possible.
