At Sophia Health Institute®, our world-class team treats the underlying causes of complex chronic illness through patient-centered care.
Our patients have often struggled for years, searching for answers to understand their illnesses.

What Makes SHI So Unique?

What Is The Meaning Behind Sophia?
We often get asked about the meaning behind the Sophia Health Institute®, and how it relates to the core of our work.
Based in the Greek language, Sophia brings two concepts together:
One is the highest level of love, and the other one is the highest level of wisdom. It’s a kind of knowledge that’s infused with wisdom and love. That is how we’re trying to practice medicine at the Sophia Health Institute®.
What Patients Are Saying About Sophia Health Institute®
“Our Son Has Been Doing Fantastic…”
Our son has been doing fantastic after his last appointment with Dr. Klinghardt, we have had a completely different boy (a very very happy one) on our hands this past week and feel like he is finally turning that corner we have been waiting for all these years! We don’t know what we would do without all of you!!
“My Life Began To Change…”
I have struggled for more than a decade with health challenges and worked with many doctor’s along the way. It wasn’t until I became a patient at The Sophia Health Institute® that my life began to change. For the first time, I could let go of “needing to figure it out” and let my doctors manage my treatment.
“The Team At Sophia Are Great…”
Healing from long-term illness is not always easy, but the team at Sophia are great guides on the sometimes long and winding road back to health. They actively seek out and use cutting edge therapies from around the world, I am so grateful for Dr. Klinghardt’s help. He is a great and life-changing healer and teacher.
“Commit 100% Because Health Isn’t A ‘Maybe’ Type of Thing…”
As you step into the care at Sophia, know it’s one of the best teams around, and you will be relentlessly guided to reach the other side. If you want to get there, you will. I’m currently still a patient at the institute, but each day I’m getting close and closer to health. The differences, even just symptomatically, from my initial step into the clinic and now is seriously night and day. I highly recommend at least checking it out, seeing if it’s right for you, and if you decide it’s what you think is best, then don’t be luke-warm about it – step in, all the way, because health isn’t a ‘maybe’ type of thing, it’s a “yes”.
“I’ve been home for a week and I STILL feel great.”
Not quite sure why even, but I’ll take it for as long as it lasts! My entire family is in a little bit of awe. Thanks so much, and thanks again for helping me start to get my life back.
“I really trust him and am happy he is in our life now.”
Seeing Dr. K has been paradigm shifting for me. He is doing the most for our children than any other doctor – he doesn’t just keep doing the same thing – he keeps trying new methodologies – we need more doctors like him for our kids! He is also very wise. He gets our pain as parents around this situation and yet he instills me with hope that had been extinguished previously.
“Working with Dr Schaffner and her team has been a dream come true.”
I tried for years to weed through Lyme protocols on my own and with a haphazard team of practitioners that never seemed to be able to figure out the full picture of what was needed to treat my complex symptoms. Since starting with Dr Schaffner in May 2017, I feel like I can finally relax and trust my doctor. I am now rounding the corner and making significant progress toward remission. My life has opened up. I have energy, joy and hope again. Dr. Schaffner works tirelessly for each and every one of her patients. I am so incredibly grateful to have her on my team. -A.S. 2018
