Mike Eyres – BNatMed
- Functional Medicine Practitioner
- Registered Naturopath and Medical Herbalist
- Darkfield Microscopist
I first discovered Naturopathy after suffering with IBD for many years following a gastrointestinal infection picked up on a surfing trip overseas 20 years ago. Naturopathy got me back on my feet and has taught me how to live a healthy happy life.
After a brief side journey of 15 years into the world of winemaking I returned to study Natural Medicine at the South Pacific College of Natural Medicine and am now passionate about helping others discover and incorporate Naturopathic practices into their own lives.
I approach health challenges from a scientific, functional medicine perspective utilising evidence based herbal, nutritional and lifestyle treatments.
I utilise a combination of a thorough case history, physical examination, Hemaview – now called FocuSpect and functional medicine tests to identify the root causes and driving factors of disease states.
I believe in the body’s innate ability to heal itself and provide individualised, evidence based treatment plans that are realistic and achievable for all my patients.
Although I work as a general practitioner and am happy to help any condition, I have special interests in the following areas:
- Inflammatory conditions
- Gastrointestinal dysfunction
- Mental Health
- Chronic and Stealth Infections
- Hormonal Imbalances
- Cardiovascular and Metabolic disorders
- Men’s health
- DUTCH test for hormones
- Organic Acids Test (OAT)
- SIBO breath test
- Complete Microbiome Mapping DNA Stool test
- DNA testing (coming soon)
- Hair Tests for food sensitivities
I work 3 days a week in clinic, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, as I am passionate about working with busy families and working professionals, I offer evening and weekend appointments.
When I am not working I can be found spending time enjoying the New Zealand outdoors with my wife and two sons or kayaking on one of our many beautiful rivers.
