TrueNorth Health Update

TrueNorth Health Adds Additional Doctors and Staff

Michael Klaper, MD

Dr. Klaper

Michael Klaper, M.D. graduated from the University of Illinois College of Medicine in Chicago in 1972. He Served his medical internship at Vancouver General Hospital in British Columbia, Canada and took under took additional training in surgery, anesthesiology, orthopedics and obstetrics at the University of California Hospitals in San Francisco.

As Dr. Klaper’s medical career progressed, he began to realize that many of the diseases his patients brought to his office – clogged arteries (atherosclerosis) high blood pressure (hypertension), obesity, adult onset diabetes, and even some forms of arthritis, asthma, and other significant illnesses – were made worse, or actually caused, by the high-fat, high sugar, overly processed Standard American Diet (S.A.D.).

Dr. Klaper believes strongly that proper nutrition and a balanced lifestyle are essential for health, and in many cases make the difference between healing an illness or merely treating the symptoms.

To further the education of physicians and other health professionals about the importance of nutrition in clinical practice, Dr. Klaper serves as the Director of the non-profit Institute of Nutrition Education and Research. He also is a member of the Nutrition Task Force of the American Medical Student Association.

Dr. Klaper has served as advisor to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (N.A.S.A.) project on nutrition for long-term space colonists on the moon and on Mars.

A gifted teacher, clinician, and the author of successful books and video’s on cholesterol-free nutrition. Dr. Klaper has contributed to the making of two PBS television productions, “Food for Thought,” and the award winning, “Diet for a New America.” For 11 years, Dr. Klaper also hosted the popular medical information radio program “Sounds of Healing,” on KAOI  1110 AM in Maui, Hawaii.

 His diet and lifestyle have been vegan since 1981.


Tim Grund, D.C., DACNB

Dr. Grund also offers functional neurological assessments and individualized programs for those interested in achieving and maintaining optimal brain function as they age.

Jo Henkel

Jo Henkel

Jo Henkel is an ACE Certified Personal Trainer as well as a certified Pilates Mat Instructor.  She holds a degree in History from Sonoma State University and two teaching credentials.  Jo worked as an elementary school teacher and teacher-trainer prior to joining the fitness industry in 2006.  Jo views fitness training as yet another teaching experience, just teaching new skills to older students, as well as a chance to share her love of movement and exercise.  She has successfully trained clients from age 13 to 88 and worked with individuals with a myriad of health challenges.

These new team members will join Drs. Goldhamer, Sultana, Isabeau, Linzner and Lisle in what we believe is the most diversified and experienced group of doctors offering conservative diagnostic and treatment services available.

We are once again able to accept new patients for medicine, chiropractic, naturopathy and psychology.  If you, your family or friends were unable to get an appointment in the past because the practice was closed to new patients, now is your chance to establish a relationship with the doctors at TrueNorth Health Center.  The medical doctors are preferred providers for Medicare and Blue Cross PPO.  If you would like to be able to have access to our medical doctors, please make your initial appointment ASAP.  In order to offer highly individualized quality medical care, we will be limited to the number of new patients we can accept.

If you are already under the care of Dr. Sultana, office hours and access has been expanded so it should be easier to get an appointment.  Dr. Klaper now offers medical appointments on Saturdays.
