Jenny Noland, functional nutritionist in Eugene Oregon

 

I am a licensed and triple-board-certified functional nutritionist based in Eugene, Oregon. My very engaging nutritional therapy practice has been up and running since 2015, serving clients locally and nationwide. My practice focuses on using personalized nutrition and natural modalities to optimize digestive health, metabolic function, and the outcome of cancer care. I am also a teaching faculty member in the School of Integrative and Functional Medicine School at the John Patrick University of Health and Applied Sciences.

I earned a bachelor’s degree in accounting and an MBA. I was a hardworking business and IT professional for 15 years, working eight years for Deloitte. I enjoyed my business career, yet I found my focus shifting over time.  

 

My interest in nutrition was piqued in 2002 upon meeting my future husband, a long-time sufferer of an autoimmune disease. Witnessing firsthand the ineffectiveness of conventional medicine, a desire to find alternative methods to help my husband grew in my heart.  This ambition only intensified in 2010 after experiencing my own health crisis.  I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer and endured a traumatic surgery with rare, life-threatening complications.

As painful as this experience was, it blossomed into the realization and motivation that it was necessary to take my and my family’s health into our own hands. I then embarked on my journey of intensive study of food and nutrition. After applying lifestyle changes to myself and my family, I experienced and witnessed an amazing improvement in our health and wellness. Nutrition has become my life’s passion. This passion and desire to share such valuable knowledge with others spawned my nutrition practice. 

 

Along with over a decade of researching and studying gut health, chronic inflammation, and the endocrine system, I have successfully completed many training programs in functional medicine and functional nutrition:

  • Doctor of Clinical Nutrition - University of Western States (in training)

  • Integrative Nutrition Oncology Graduate Certificate - John Patrick University of Health and Applied Sciences

  • Credentials from the American Nutrition Association (ANA) through its Board for Certification of Nutrition Specialists (BCNS):

    • Certified Nutrition Specialist  

    • Certified Nutritional Genomics Specialist

    • Certified Ketogenic Nutrition Specialist

  • Master of Science in Clinical Nutrition - Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine & Health Sciences

  • Certified Nutritional Endocrinology Practitioner - Institute of Nutritional Endocrinology (3-year training in endocrine function & disorders)

  • Certified Digestive System Master Coach - Institute of Nutritional Endocrinology (Digestive disorders & comprehensive GI function)

  • Certified Insulin Resistance Coach - - Institute of Nutritional Endocrinology (Digestive disorders & comprehensive GI function)

  • Hashimoto's Institute Practitioner - Trained by nationally renowned naturopathic-endocrinologist Dr. Alan Christianson & Izabella Wentz

  • Hashimoto's training by functional medicine pioneer Dr. Datis Kharrazian - Kharrazian Institute

  • Gastrointestinal Strategies and Treatment Applications - Kharrazian Institute

  • Mastering Inflammatory Bowel Disease by naturopathic GI expert Dr. Ilana Gurevich

  • Certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach - Institute for Integrative Nutrition​

 

From my experience working with clients, I have witnessed a strong connection between body and mind.  Many physical health issues are rooted in unresolved emotional traumas.  Being a certified Transpersonal Energy Healing Counselor, I also apply Transpersonal Energy Healing Therapy to assist clients in exploring the aliveness of energy that lives in their system, bringing it into conscious awareness and fluid movement. It helps clients identify more with their Essential Selves, thereby freeing themselves of limitations. 

When not immersed in nutrition, I am likely absorbed in other passions such as dancing and yoga (I am also a certified yoga teacher). I am in the midst of a wonderful life journey, with plenty of highs and lows and, most of all, an abundance of learning. I am grateful for the many experiences and growth opportunities. I want to continue growing and learning more about love and compassion, nutrition, fitness, and spirituality. Putting these all together is essential for our well-being.  

 

I’m passionate about helping others realize and live up to their potential by using food and lifestyle to build a solid foundation for personal growth. I believe that the right lifestyle fuels creativity and ingenuity and can support our well-being.
