Dr. Lynn Klassen, ND

Naturopathic Doctor

Dr. Lynn Klassen is pleased to be practicing at Marine Drive Naturopathic Clinic. She believes that one of the greatest tools a physician can have is to be a great listener, a tool that has allowed her to help many patients with chronic and complex health issues.

She has always had a passion for women’s health and helping women optimize their hormone levels throughout all phases of life. She has a special interest in areas such as:

  • menopause, hot flashes
  • fertility, pre/post natal care
  • IVF support
  • PMS
  • PCOS (weight loss, acne, fertility, hirsutism, hair loss)
  • herbal medicine for hormone balancing (extra training with Aviva Romm, MD)

Dr. Klassen also has a special interest in the treatment of chronic infections, especially Lyme disease and other tick borne illnesses, Epstein Barr virus and Cytomegalovirus. She recently attended the ILADS Conference in Philadelphia. The conference included instruction on emerging testing concepts and symptom relief for sleep disturbances, pain and inflammation.

Other conditions which she has a special interest in treating include:

  • headaches (including migraine headaches)
  • digestive complaints
  • food allergies
  • skin concerns (eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, dermatitis)
  • anxiety and depression
  • sleep
  • arthritis, joint pain
 

Dr Klassen sought out Naturopathic Medicine for herself after suffering with chronic, persistent migraines from the age of 10. She began seeing a Naturopathic Doctor at the age of 22 and within 6 months they had achieved what was not possible in the 10 years prior - a 75% reduction in frequency and severity. This was a life changer for her. After completing her undergraduate degree at the University of Manitoba, she enrolled in Naturopathic Medicine at the Boucher Institute. She has spent most of her career in health care in various capacities and is excited to share her knowledge with her patients.

Dr Lynn Klassen is a great listener and has a lot of compassion for her patients. She strongly believes in educating her patients about how their body works so that they can make decisions about their health that are right for them. She feels that health care isn’t and shouldn’t be ‘one size fits all’ and her goal is to help her patients navigate the healthcare system.

Dr Klassen is licensed through the College of Naturopathic Physicians of BC (CNPBC). She is board certified in acupuncture. She will be leaving MDNC October 1st to open Tandem Clinic (www.tandemclinic.com) in Olympic Village. Professional Affiliations:
