Megan Taylor, ND
Dr. Megan Taylor is a naturopathic physician who loves working with children and adults to uncover their innate vitality and inner resilience. Dr. Taylor combines conventional diagnostics and treatment protocols with botanical medicine, nutrient supplementation, bodywork, nutritional counseling, homeopathy, and lifestyle intervention to address a wide range of conditions. While trained as a primary care provider, Dr. Taylor especially enjoys working with individuals experiencing gastrointestinal issues, including Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO), allergies, and autoimmune disease. Additionally, she has special interest in incorporating mindfulness into her work with patients and has received additional training through META http://www.meta-trainings.com in Portland, OR.
Dr. Taylor is currently completing her second year of a competitive residency program through the National University of Natural Medicine (NUNM). She earned her doctorate in naturopathic medicine from the NUNM, graduating with honors, in 2015. During both her internship and residency, Dr. Taylor has had the good fortune of being mentored by Dr. Steven Sandberg-Lewis in naturopathic gastroenterology, and by Dr. Allison Siebecker in the diagnosis and treatment of small intestine bacterial overgrowth (SIBO). Additionally, as a student, she completed a six-month clinical mentorship in cardiopulmonary medicine with Dr. Martin Milner, and worked closely with a variety of other experienced naturopathic practitioners.
Providing access to gender affirming care for transgender or gender neutral/non-binary persons per WPATH standards is also one of Dr. Taylor’s interests. Dr. Taylor works to develop care plans based on individual needs, which can include hormone prescriptions, androgen blocking, surgical referrals, or help with documentation, among other items.
Prior to attending NUNM, Dr. Taylor received her bachelor’s degree in 2007 from Lewis and Clark College in Portland, Oregon and worked for several years in environmental and urban planning. When not working hard as a physician, Dr. Taylor spends as much time as possible in her garden, on the yoga mat, cooking delicious meals, enjoying her family and friends, and breathing deeply.
