Keegan Abernathy MS, CNS, LDN


Keegan received his Master of Science in Nutrition and Integrative Health from Maryland University of Integrative Health (MUIH) and is a Certified Nutrition Specialist (CNS) and Licensed Dietitian Nutritionist (LDN).

He has witnessed how nutrition has the ability to heal, empower, and enrich lives. Keegan sees eating not only as a way to heal, but also as a practice for returning to our true nature. He believes that nutrition is an investigation into what we are eating and how we are eating. Gaining insight into these two components of eating allows for transformation, healing, and a joyous sense of well-being.

After contracting clostridium difficile (commonly known as C. diff) in 2013, Keegan experienced eating as a fearful experience due to his compromised digestion. Through the power of nutrition, mindful eating, and reiki, he healed his digestion and developed an empowered relationship with his body and its wisdom. It is now his mission to guide others to their true nature of health and well-being.

Outside of practice, Keegan enjoys cooking, lots of time outdoors with his doggie, reading sci-fi/fantasy books, and writing poetry.

"I’d been to two other nutritionists, with no results, before finding Keegan. Now, I’m losing weight and having loads of fun doing it. What makes Keegan different is that he not only has a wealth of information about healthy eating, but he is also a creative cook, who generously shares practical tips on how to prepare foods in easy, exciting, and tasty ways.  Instead of seeing food as an obstacle to overcome, I now look on it as an adventure to experience.  Because of Keegan's gentle and compassionate guidance and support, I don’t dread nutrition appointments anymore but very much look forward to them!"
