MEET THE TEAM
Dr. Jason Klop, ND
Founder of Novel Biome™
Jason has been working in the field of digestive health and microbiome restoration for many years and during this time focused on conditions that were not responding to pharmaceutical interventions such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Crohn’s, Ulcerative Colitis and Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO).
Dr. Klop believes the foundation for all health lies in the gut and through his extensive experience, has incorporated Fecal Microbiota Transplants (FMT) with great results and has broadened his focus to offer this treatment for children with autism and autism-related symptoms. He is one of a few physicians who offer FMT for children on the spectrum and through his extensive experience has come to learn that not only is FMT extremely safe but very effective!
