Dr. Pavel Klein founded Anemone in 2012. The program was developed as a differentiated diet-based total meal replacement program to treat and prevent Type 2 diabetes.

Dr. Klein is a neurologist and clinical researcher with both a BA and a MA from Oxford University and a MD from Cambridge University. Dr. Klein has taught at Harvard University and Georgetown University. He is now in private practice in Bethesda, MD.

Dr. Klein has published over 40 articles in peer-reviewed journals, has written numerous book chapters, presented scientific work at numerous national and international meetings, lectured nationally and internationally, and received grants from the NIH, from non-profit organizations and from the pharmaceutical industry for clinical scientific projects. He enjoys mountain hiking in the Shenandoah’s, spending time with family, and traveling.


While studying the effectiveness of the dietary treatment of patients with epilepsy, Dr. Klein observed that the diabetic patients in the study lost weight and showed signs of their diabetes entering remission. He learned that these observations were supported by a number of research studies showing the effectiveness of this dietary treatment in controlling and reversing type 2 diabetes. Building on this, from 2012 through 2015, Dr. Klein and his medical researchers conducted clinical studies on how his diet specifically affects patients with type 2 diabetes, and also worked to fine tune the nutrient balance and food recipes to create the most effective program at reversing diabetes available. The unique Anemone Program he developed results in complete sustained remission of type 2 diabetes in more than 80% of individuals with type 2 diabetes, with elimination of all diabetic medications and lasting normal glucose levels after completion of the program.

He subsequently developed ways of applying this diet on a larger scale to address the US epidemic of Type 2 diabetes. Anemone’s Mission is to help people with Type 2 diabetes achieve complete remission, and to help patients with pre-diabetes prevent the disease using a physician supervised complete meal replacement program to control and prevent Type 2 diabetes
