A message from Dr. Klassen, ND
If you're here, you're searching for answers about your health.
Recently the CDC has acknowledged the vast increase in the incidence of Lyme disease in North America, but peer reviewed research on treatment options, testing and optimal patient outcomes is lagging far behind.
My goal as a doctor is to help my patients navigate the healthcare system and to work together to create a comprehensive care plan across providers. Navigating the healthcare system on your own can be overwhelming and confusing. Especially once you enter the world of chronic infection.
I very strongly believe in continual education, I'm a perpetual learner. This serves me well with treating my patients - I read the cutting-edge research and try to implement it in my practice as soon as I can. Helping people with chronic infection is my passion. This site and my clinic are my first steps towards connecting people with the resources they need to take charge of their health. I plan to continue to work on building new ways to help people with their health - new resources, new services and new ventures.
Let's all stand united and never let anyone feel alone in this fight.

New research is showing that ticks and other vectors don't just carry one pathogen. Each pathogen has it's own symptom profile. Learn more about how co-infections can affect your health.
