Quack Exposed: Jason Klop

Dr. Jason Klop, an naturopath from Vancouver in Canada claims to be the first and only clinic to duplicate the treatment which was developed by Dr. James Adams and their team at Arizona State University. At 18 weeks, they claim they observed 80% improvement from a baseline in digestive related symptoms .They also claim that there is a 25% improvement in "autism related symptoms" in 8 weeks. 

At the two year followup, they said they observed 80% improvement in digestive symptoms maintained and another 20% "improvement in autism related symptoms." 

Klop sends all his families with autistic children to a retreat in Mexico. It is illegal to perform this procedure in Canada and the United States. It takes place at a hotel in  Rosarito Beach, Mexico. The treatments take place in a clinic across the street from the hotel. When I looked on Google maps, all I saw was a veterinary hospital. 

The treatment and retreats cost a total of $15,000. 

It is only a legal procedure for C. Diff. Not all people with C. Diff are candidates for this experimental procedure. 

Here is a video explaining exactly what he does. It was a Facebook live by Klop:

The infection risk is great. They have donor stool from two children aged 14 and 15 years old. These children are not vaccinated. The donors are tested but to only collect samples from two children, imagine what life must be like for these kids. 

Some of the samples are up to two weeks old! A lot can happen to fecal samples in over 24 hours, let alone 2 weeks!

The FDA issued a warning on this dangerous practice. 
In a Dutch Study, there was transmission of parasites during FMT:
Klop or his associates had connected all his parents with a Facebook Group called Klop Kids. It is thought to be shut down due to efforts by the talented Melissa Eaton. She reported this atrocity to the Candadian media.

Klop connected all his families with a Facebook group called Klop Kids. The group has been reportedly shut down. It is said that they opened a new group but a $5,000 deposit must be paid for entry in the group.

Health Canada Takes Action

In April 2020, Health Canada started looking into Klop's business in response to CBC reporting. FMT are not approved by Health Canada or the FDA for autism. 

Health Canada has sent Klop a letter informing him that his business is not compliant with federal law. Health Canada;s file on Klop is active. 

"Selling unauthorized health products or making false or misleading claims to prevent, treat or cure illnesses is illegal in Canada. The department takes this matter very seriously and will continue to take action to stop this activity."

Klop Banned from FMT

The College of Natruropathic Physicals of British Columbia, Canada has taken "extraordinary action" against Klop. This was in response to a complaint from a former employee who says he manufactures his products in a household lab in BC without standard procedures or quality control. 

On August 19, 2021, the college's inquiry committee said while the complaint is under investigation, Klop cannot manufacture, advertise or sell fecla microbiota transplants. He will also be subject to random on site audits to make sure he is in compliance. 

According to the college's public notice, it is taking action "due to the seriousness of the alleged conduct and a real risk of harm to the public."

This is the first public sign of concrete action by the college in 20 years. 

"There is no way that the college can adequately protect public safety on an interim basis if Dr. Klop is allowed to continue his current FMT endeavors."

Klop Files a Petition

Klop has filed a petition to ask a judge to quash BC regulator's "extraordinary action" against him. This document includes allegations that the college has overstepped its power by setting guidelines outside its jurisdiction to regulate the practice of naturopathy. 

The petition also says that the college "has no mandate to purport to protect patients who are receiving treatment in Mexico or any other place outside of British Columbia or otherwise restrict the treatment choices of patients outside British Columbia."

He also says the FMT is under the jurisdiction of Canada Health and not the college but he is already under investigation by Canada Health. 

The college has not filed a response as of yet.
